So.... how does online training work?
If you want to change, a good foundation is the most important starting point. You will start with a questionaire, followed by a phone call / Zoom call / face to face session with me to discuss your goals.
This initial meeting will help us both to figure out how you got to where you are, and how you are going to get to your goals. We will also identify weaknesses that need to be addressed at this time.
The next step will be a comprehensive calorie and macronutrient guide specific to YOU that will help you to get a birds eye view of what healthy nutrition is all about.
From there you will receive your first "Practice" which will be your first step through the process.
Every 7-14 days you will be sent more practices to do. These practices can be focussed on mental approach, movement, nutrition, stress management etc...... This is not just about food!
Each practice will build on the previous one, the practices come with a wealth of reading material. The entire Precision Nutrition way of learning is based on making one small change at a time. Over the course of your coaching, you'll make so many easy small changes that when you finish this program, you'll be a totally transformed. When it comes to food, you'll be educated, confident, calm and capable. Never again will you try a new fad diet and never again will you be staring at a pile of information, wondering what to do.
In fact.. searching for information on weight loss is the LAST thing that you should be doing. The internet, media, bookstores etc.... are full of information. We've never lived in a time that had more access to information and it has had no effect whatsoever on weight gain, obesity or the general health of the world.
Is this a diet?
No it's not. It is a coaching process that will teach you how to eat, what to eat, when to eat and how much to eat. Your food choices will be based on YOUR preferences. There are hundreds (possibly thousands) of diets.
SOME STATS ABOUT WEIGHT AND DIETS:
Most women are trying to lose weight from age 15 until they give up around 70 years old!
Google "weight loss diet" you'll get 250 MILLION results.
60% of Irish adults are overweight or obese.
46% of Irish schoolchildren have tried to diet to lose weight.
One in 3 women over 50 years old are clinically overweight.
Severe obesity is more dangerous for your health than smoking, drinking and poverty.
The weight loss industry including supplements/pills etc.. is now worth €400 BILLION!.
One Irish bookstore has more than 300 diet books currently for sale!
We've never had so much access to information on diets, and fat loss, and it has had very little impact on weight gain. The purpose of this system is to lose weight without ever feeling that you are on a strict diet.
The "off-line" part?
The off-line part is what you think of as traditional personal training. Once a month, you can receive an in-person personal training session. This will reinforce your online training. It's where you can meet me face to face, your progress will be measured, I will advise you on exercise and I will get a better feel for where you are and what's best for you. My hourly personal training rate is €50 but you will receive this session for €40 or less depending on which online option you select.
