Nutritionist Eliot McPherson joins Team Rhapsody to lead Rhapsody Nutrition.
While Eliot was pursuing higher education at Clemson University, his father suffered a massive stroke impairing speech and motor control. Immediately after, he changed his major from Civil Engineering to Food Science and Human Nutrition to answer the call to stop chronic disease and impact health at its core.
After graduation, Eliot moved to Charleston to work with MUSC’s Stroke Rehabilitation Research Center and started accepting Personal Training/Nutrition Consulting clients through a fitness studio in Mount Pleasant.
A good friend brought Eliot into Rhapsody CrossFit in Charleston, but our pristine facility stole his heart before you could say “3-2-1-GO!” Prime equipment coupled with Team Rhapsody’s relentless passion for enhancing the health and wellness of all its members was game-set-match.
As weeks became months, Eliot continued to grow as an athlete, coach and a person. Going straight to the source, he now aims to help each member of his community enhance their overall health and performance through Rhapsody Nutrition.
All about meeting you where you are, Eliot digs deep with a comprehensive consultation covering your experience, relationship with food, lifestyle and aspirations. Far beyond a fad diet or quick fix, he moves into a personalized nutrition plan designed to get you to your unique goals and help you form healthy habits for life.
For Eliot, success is showing you just how attainable a healthy lifestyle can be regardless of your past struggles, sticking points or schedule. The first to want to try a new restaurant, check out a brewery or tag along for Off Track Ice Cream, he simply loves food and can help you find that balance between making smart choices and living your best life.
When Eliot isn’t chewing on a barbell, you’ll likely find this mountain man blazing a new trail or dribbling a soccer ball.
