My next registration approaching, with lots of great questions about the program, I decided to answer the most common ones so you can decide if it’s a good fit for you.

 

Q:

What is Transformation 365 Exercise and Nutrition Coaching?

A:

Transformation 365 Exercise and Nutrition Coaching is a 12-month program that guides clients through dramatic—yet sustainable—changes in their eating and exercise habits. In this program, I take complex nutritional elements and break them down into small, strategic daily practices—small practices that are designed to fit into a busy lifestyle.

Transformation 365 Exercise and Nutrition Coaching includes:

  • A structured year-long nutrition program to help keep you consistent.
  • Me, Your Coach to give you feedback, make adjustments to your program, and help keep you accountable.
  • Strategic daily nutrition practices that fit into your lifestyle.
  • Exercise plans designed specifically for your fitness level

Most people have tried other so many things in the past to lose weight. You’ve probably read books, blogs, and magazine articles, not to mention trying all the diets that have hit the market. As human beings, we are rarely transformed by simply reading more on the topic. Instead, most transformations happen with the help and guidance of a person over time – usually a coach or a mentor. Sometimes they have even been through the exact same changes you want to overcome.

Now, please don’t get me wrong, information is imperative to learn new way of doing things but if you’re having trouble putting what you know into action consistently, Transformation 365 Exercise and Nutrition Coaching may be just the thing for you.

Q:

Who is Transformation 365 Exercise and Nutrition Coaching for?

A:

Transformation 365 Exercise and Nutrition Coaching is for those who want to get into the best shape of their life and they want a better, longer lasting way to do it. It’s for busy people who want a structured program that will teach them what they need to know about nutrition, who want the accountability and guidance from a coach to keep them moving forward, and to see them through to the end.

The basis of this program is to help you improve your eating and exercise by helping you develop new habits – all within the context of your day-to-day life.

This is not some crazy diet where you follow a strict menu, restrict your calories and exercise like you’re training for a competition; I help my clients build new lasting routines that create results that last.

Q:

Will Transformation 365 Exercise and Nutrition Coaching work for me?

A:

If you follow the recommendations and stick with me for the full year then yes, you will get results. But you have to commit to making small strategic changes in your life. That’s something no one ever likes to admit about getting in better shape: it takes hard work, time, and determination.

Changing your body isn’t easy, but it is possible.

Want to lose weight? Eat better? Feel less stressed? Get more sleep?

Then just be open to doing things just a little different than you have in the past.

Once you make the commitment to get in better shape, I’ll be with you every step of the way. When life pushes you around and difficulties come up, I’ll help you push back.

I’ll stack the deck in your favour and give you every possible advantage I know of. Over the course of 12 months, you’ll learn everything you need to look, feel, and perform at your best.

I promise.

Q:

How often do you accept new clients?

A:

Due to the very ‘hands on’ nature of this program, I only accept a limited number of folks each year.

That means I only have the capacity to coach 10 clients at a time to maintain a high level of service.

Because of that, I encourage people who are eager to work with me to put their name on the Transformation 365 Exercise and Nutrition Coaching presale list.

By adding your name to that list, I’ll give you the opportunity to register 24 hours before everyone else, increasing your chances of getting a spot. Plus, you’ll save 20% on the cost of the program. It’s my way of rewarding the people who are most willing to commit, because they’ve always proven to be the best clients.

Q:

What will I learn in the Transformation 365 Exercise and Nutrition Coaching program?

A:

You will learn how to be able to get in touch with your body so you know when and how much to eat. You will learn what to eat to be able to reach your goals and give your body what it needs to function optimally. You will learn about the connection stress has on your health and valuable stress management techniques.

Q:

Do you give me a meal plan?

A:

No, I don’t create meal plans.

Meal plans and diets aren’t really that useful or sustainable. People often feel like they’re either “on” them or “off” them. They feel like they’ve failed and are beyond hope if they’re not eating perfectly at every meal.

This approach is completely different: I help you build a set of sustainable habits that will serve you for the rest of your life.

This means you get to choose—with the help of me, your coach—which foods are best for you, when to eat those foods, and how much to eat (proper portion sizes).

Q:

What are other people saying about Transformation 365 Exercise and Nutrition Coaching?

A:

The feedback on the coaching has been overwhelmingly positive.

Plus, here’s Shari’s story, which is definitely worth checking out:

 

  • I love how this program addresses the main issues most people go through and is so relatable!

  • Sometimes the smallest piece of information makes a big impact. Reading “did you remember to eat slowly today?” And knowing it will be reoccurring helps build the habit for me.

  • Lisa, you challenge me, you push me. You challenge my answers and it really makes me think, gives me the extra push I want (but may think I don’t want in the moment LOL). I appreciate everything!

  • I like how most lessons teach you something that relates to other aspects of your life, provides a better understanding of nutrition. It’s not all “big words” and looking at body builders. It’s real life.

  • Learning small things like rubber bands on my water bottle to count my refills, learning new weekly habits through this program, and watching/listening to helpful tips and information. It’s one thing to hear a helpful thing once and then possibly forgetting it the next day. This program gives you daily reminders to be mindful and continue learning on healthy lifestyle.

  • Working on my mindset is so important. Health has always felt like a chore and fitness something you get out of the way quickly so you can get on with real life. I’m working on changing that and the small consistent steps are really helpful.

  • Eating slowly has been challenging but interesting. I’m already happy with less!

  • I like eating slowly and I’m enjoying my food more. I like adding more veg with every meal. I like switching to water over soft drinks. So many small things are adding up. 

Q:

Why are you offering this type of coaching?

A:

I decided to become a Precision Nutrition Coach and offer this program because I know what it’s like to overcome challenges and have to figure out what it takes to create lasting changes.  Mentors and coaches have made all the difference in my life.

I feel extremely fortunate to have been able to be coached by such wonderful people and I want to share what I’ve learned and help even more people. Coaches are people who are a little further along the path. They are people who can help steer us in the direction we need to go.

So this is my way of paying it forward. I’m here to help you make meaningful change in your life.

Q:

I’m a beginner with a lot of weight to lose. Will this work for me?

A:

Yes. I’ve worked with lots of people who are new to exercise and healthy eating.

Remember, we were all beginners at some point. And I do my best to make sure all beginners work at a pace that’s comfortable for them.

 

Q:

What if I don’t have much weight to lose but just want to eat better?

A:

It’s great that you don’t have a lot of weight to lose. It means you’re starting out with a big advantage.

Of course, lifelong fitness and health is more than losing weight. With Transformation 365 Exercise and Nutrition Coaching you’ll learn how to maintain a lean and healthy body for life. Plus you’ll develop a new, healthier relationship with food and eating. And that’s something fewer than 5 percent of people know how to do.

Q:

I’m interested in building muscle. Is this for me?

A:

Yes. I have custom nutrition habits specifically for people who want to gain muscle.  I can also give you an exercise program that will support building muscle as a goal.

Q:

I read that you require progress photos. Do I have to submit those?

A:

Well, technically, I don’t require progress photos. They’re completely optional. The reason behind requesting progress photos is to visually document the changes you’re making while coaching with me, so we can both see what you are achieving. (It’s also important for me to see what’s happening so I can help give you better advice when required.) Of course, at the end of your coaching experience, if you’re really proud of your transformation and you will be so proud seeing exactly how far you’ve come.

But, of course, the pictures will be kept totally private at all times. Remember, I’m here to help change bodies and lives, not to embarrass anyone or make them feel ashamed. So you can opt out of the photo process if you want to.

Q:

Will I have to spend a lot of money on food and supplements?

A:

When it comes to food, most clients actually end up saving money on their grocery bills.

This is because they make more informed, careful decisions, eat out less, and spend fewer dollars on processed novelty foods, replacing them with whole, delicious natural foods.

As for supplements, I may recommend a few health-oriented products, based on your unique needs and goals. However, these are completely optional.

Q:

Do I need to have access to a gym?

A:

No. There are workouts options that you can choose to train at the gym or at home.

Q:

Do I need special equipment?

A:

Programs can be based on what you have access to, but some form of weights (dumbbells, kettlebells, sandbag or bands etc) is desirable.

Q:

I like to (Crossfit, run, bike, swim, ski, do group exercise classes, walk my dog, etc). Can I still do the stuff I love while getting coaching?

A:

Absolutely. Keep doing what you love.

That’s the whole point of Transformation 365 Exercise and Nutrition Coaching—to learn how to eat and exercise in a way that’s fun and most importantly maintainable. And to do this all while living a fuller life.

Q:

I follow a special diet (plant-based, vegan, Paleo, intermittent fasting, etc.). Will you still work with me?

A:

Yep, I’d love to work with you. The nutrition habits I guide you through are easily customizable.

All you have to do is let me know what your dietary preferences/restrictions are and I’ll help you out.

Q:

When does the Transformation 365 Exercise and Nutrition Coaching program begin?

A:

I open registration on Sunday July 9th and be open until July 15th and the program will begin Monday, July 24th, 2017. Just remember there won’t be another one until January 2018.

Q:

How long does the program run for?

A:

Transformation 365 Exercise and Nutrition Coaching lasts for 12 months. Based on continued research,  a full year is found to be the most effective time period for building the habits necessary for life-long health and fitness.

I am committed to helping you make a life-changing, transformative change. That’s why I have everyone commit to the program for 12 months.

Of course, while most of us think we need to learn everything at once, research shows the exact opposite: When we want to improve ourselves, the only way to do it is to change one thing at a time.

That’s why coaching (being led and guided by someone a little further along the path than you) and social support (being surrounded and encouraged by like-minded people) are so important.

The formula is simple: I deliver coaching, social support, and a process that encourages real change.

And that’s not something you can find in a book.
