About us

We offer a professional nutritional coaching service with the addition of our tailored strength & conditioning programming.

Unorthodox Performance was founded when Unorthodox Nutrition founder Mike Leng approached Ben Robson with the idea of expanding the brand.

Ben with his background in sports & exercise science and years of combat sport competition experience took on the opportunity with open arms. Unorthodox Performance strives to achieve the best results possible for all clients with tailored nutrition and strength & conditioning coaching.
