Dr Tilly Spurr


Dr Spurr did an undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences with honours in Behavioural Zoology and when she graduated, she worked in finance on a trading floor for ten years.

She left when the job became impossible alongside having a family and went back to university to do an MSc in Nutritional Medicine. From here Dr Spurr went on to do a PhD in Physiology & Nutrition and into academia. Alongside teaching at the university of Chichester she works in applied practice as a registered performance nutritionist (SENr & ISAK). Dr Spurr has worked with a range of pro and semi-pro, National and International athletes in both team and individual sports, and coach executives in high stress jobs.

She is currently working with England Basketball, LDN Warriors 3×3, Great British Eventing and as a TASS Hub consultant. Her research and main interest are in how to boost performance and wellbeing whilst fitting in with all the demands of ‘life’. Dr Spurr supports people to recognise that small changes they make in what, or the timing of what they eat can add up to great gains. But that taking everything you read, even in top journals as fact, is a risky game.
