Coaching

Note: I currently have a waiting list before we can work together. Right now it’s probably under a month.

Are you satisfied with the current state of your health and fitness? If you look back at your photos from a year ago, has your physique noticeably improved, gotten worse or stayed the same? Do you feel like you’re getting good results for the effort you put into your diet, training and lifestyle?

If not, I can help you get on track and start working more efficiently and more effectively. I offer 2 services.

1. Online physique coaching on a monthly basis. I ask for a 3-month minimum commitment, but do not actually require a long-term commitment.

2. A do-it-yourself program package, including a week of email contact that we use for several test sessions to customize and optimize your program.

Are you satisfied with your progress given the time and effort you put into your training and diet? If you look back at your photos from a year ago, has your physique noticeably improved? Are you managing to retain your desired body fat percentage year round? If not, I can help take your physique to the next level. I offer 2 services.

1. Online physique coaching on a monthly basis without need for long-term commitment.

Here’s What’s Included

  • A customized, comprehensive strength training program, including periodization and autoregulation, customized to your body and workout environment.
  • A nutritional program including both macronutrients and ad libitum diet guidelines, recommended food choices for satiety, health and micronutrition, and a set of habits to build to make following a healthy diet nearly automatic.
  • A recommended supplementation stack. Supplements aren’t a big part of my coaching, but by following an 80/20 approach with them you can get notably better results at very little cost.
  • Lifestyle advice, including sleep optimization, stress management, dealing with social pressure, learning how to eat out at restaurants and travel while staying lean, and tracking and accountability habits. As an occasional digital nomad, I’ve done this myself, I understand the challenges, and I know how to maintain your physique when your life circumstances aren’t stable.
  • Daily (at least) messaging with me. My response times are usually under 24 hours, even on weekends, and often under an hour if you catch me at the right time.
  • A monthly phone call (or one phone call for the DIY plan).

My programs are not one-size-fits-all. When you hire a coach, you should get a customized program, and that’s what I provide. My programs are individualized based on factors such as:

  • Your goals. Someone who wants to get huge shouldn’t train the same way as someone who wants to compete in bikini contests, or someone who wants to lose weight.
  • Your desired level of commitment. It probably won’t be 100% all the time, and that’s okay. The important thing is that when you can’t give 100%, you give70% or 50%, not 0%. Ultimately, my goal is not just to get you in shape, but to see that you’ve stayed lean years after we stop working together.
  • Your sex: men and women should train (and to a lesser extent, eat) differently.
  • Your muscle fiber mix– some people respond better to high-intensity training, others to medium or low-intensity, or power training.
  • Your carbohydrate tolerance. Some people should eat high-carb, others high-fat. Most are in the middle.
  • Your lifestyle. That means both how much time you have, as well as how much sleep you get and how much stress you experience– both of which have a big impact on recovery capacity.
  • Your training experience. Novices should keep it simple. More advanced trainees need more volume, frequency, variety, and usually also higher intensities.

What Kind Of People Do I Coach?

My coaching is for serious strength trainees. If you don’t train with weights 3 or more times a week, (whether or not you also do other things like cardio, yoga or sports), my coaching is either overkill or the wrong focus for you. I specialize in intermediate trainees looking to take their physique to the next level.

Most of my clients are highly motivated recreational trainees– often people who work in tech, academia or medical fields. A sizable minority are trainers, dietitians, or physique/bikini competitors themselves.

Athletes and people mixing multiple forms of exercise are welcome, but my coaching is mostly limited to getting you lean, strong and muscular. I can include cardio for fat loss, and some stretching, and program around other exercise you may be doing, but I don’t do programming for endurance training, sports, yoga or Olympic weightlifting.

No-results-money-back guarantee: If, after following my program to the letter for a month, you have not made significant progress, I will give you all your money back.

Testimonial discount: I’ll give you a 10% discount if you allow me to use your semi-anonymized data and photos (e.g. face, tattoos and whatnot blurred or cropped) for professional purposes, like case studies here on my website. This only applies after you’ve made good progress– at which point I’ll refund 10% of what you’ve spent, and continue doing so for as long as you’re with me. Consider it an added incentive to succeed.
