my coaching style

This is about changing your lifestyle.

I do not provide “quick fixes”. I am looking for clients who are willing to make lasting changes to their life, not crash diet for a few weeks for a special event.

You must be willing to commit to a minimum of 3 months of coaching.

This does not guarantee that you will see the results you desire in 3 months, but that is the minimum amount of time you should be willing to commit to your goal. This will allow us time to develop better habits and form a solid foundation of education surrounding nutrition, exercise and a healthy lifestyle.If you are not able to commit to 3 months of coaching, physically, mentally and financially, I will not be able to accept your application.

Competitors: I will require a minimum of 6 months of working together before starting a contest prep diet. Exceptions may be made for experienced athletes or those who I see fit to begin a diet sooner.(Note: Payments may be made in monthly installments, but you must agree to pay for a full 3 months upon consultation.)

There is a focus on habit building and gradual change.

Depending on where you are at in your journey, there may be a lot of changes to make. We will focus on implementing just a couple, maybe even just one, new habit(s) at a time to ensure success.Everyone moves at a different pace but there is always an emphasis on solidifying one or a few changes at a time in an effort to sustain them.

I emphasize building a better relationship with food.

Do you have to cook 100% of your meals at home? No.  Do you need to be willing to prepare the majority (>50%) of your meals at home? Ideally, yes.

We cannot expect to develop a better relationship with food and consistently be consuming food that we have little to no connection with.I advocate for a primarily whole food diet with flexibility to add in other sources to promote sustainability and enjoyment.

Your health is my priority.

Many come to me looking to improve their physique but, from a health perspective, are not in an advantageous place to properly do so. Understand that I will not compromise your health in order to achieve an aesthetic goal and that we may need to spend 3-6+ months improving health prior to shifting focus to solely physique-related goals.

This does not mean that visual improvements cannot be made during this time, however, that should not be the primary expectation if health is presently compromised.

Communication is key.

All of my most successful clients are great communicators. They let me know when they need help, when they are struggling and how I can better serve them. In order for me to best coach you, you need to communicate your needs, desires and concerns.
