Welcome to your private coaching area

Here's everything you need to get started

Firstly, congratulations on taking the leap in getting this part of your life handled!

Here you should find everything you need to get going, as well as answers to some of the most common questions people have.

Before we get going I want you to know that I have one rule when we work together:

If you are struggling, reach out.

That’s it!

Now the serious part is over…

Please take the time to read everything here in order to get the most out of us working together.

You’ll need to download a few apps to get set up:

1) Stridist – This is where I will deliver all of your “stuff”, including workouts, habits, journalling tasks and nutrition goals. You’ll receive an email invitation shortly, so keep an eye out for it! (if you don’t receive one in a day or two, feel free to send me a message).

2) MyFitnessPal – This is where you track your food and drink intake.

3) Telegram – This is for any personal communication between us.

4) Join the FB Group – This is where you can post any questions you have, and where I will be posting answers to any common questions. It’s also a place where you can get support from other, likeminded people going through a similar journey to you. Join it here.

What I expect from you:

1. To Check In – This is absolutely necessary. I understand that life happens and we forget things, and I will try my hardest to balance reminding you and not being annoying. However, if you don’t respond after two reminders then I will not chase you up.

2. Communication – I love it when clients ask me questions! Honestly it is the best way for you to gain the most from this and take away things that will help you for the rest of your life, so please don’t be shy! Also, if there’s anything we need to change at any point then that’s absolutely fine. I would rather know so that we can come up with an alternative.

3. To always be looking to find solutions instead of problems – There is no problem we cannot work together to find a solution for, but you have to want to find them.

What you can expect from me:

1. To fully support and encourage you. We’re a team and I want you to win! Seriously, I only want the best for you and I absolutely want you to succeed, because you deserve it!

2. To work to provide you with whatever you need, whether that be meal ideas, workouts or just moral support. Let me know!

3. Absolute honesty. The more honest you are and the more open you are with me the more I can help you fix any roadblocks you may be facing.

4. Zero judgment. This is not a test you pass or fail. This is us working together to help you get past the challenges you are facing

Key principles to seeing results:

Here are a few key principles that I’d like you to think about moving forward. How we approach our goals is key to seeing results, and below are some of the main ones we will use to get you to where you want to be!

Realise that wherever you are right now, you are absolutely capable of getting results.

This is key. So many of us feel like we don’t deserve to get fitter, stronger and healthier and that we’re someone who just can’t get results. But you absolutely can. The wonderful thing about your body is that it reacts in very specific ways when you give it certain things. If you put in the appropriate work, your body will respond.

If you keep telling yourself that you aren’t, then this will become a self-fulfilling prophecy, so get that idea out of your head!

Non-Negotiables

The most important part of this whole process is what we call ‘non-negotiables’. If you do these daily then you will see amazing results, I guarantee it!

The non-negotiables are:

1) Nutrition goals – This is a combination of an average daily calorie target and a minimum protein intake. I will set these depending on your goals. On top of this I want you to eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables per day.

2) Step target – This is a weekly average.

3) A workout target – A minimum of 3 workouts per week, and a maximum of 5 (rest is equally important!).

4) Support – I am here to help and support you through your journey. If you need help – ASK! If you have any questions then feel free to send me a message. If you are struggling then please reach out.

5) IMPERFECT ACTION – Being consistently good is better than being occasionally perfect. Averages over time will keep you progressing more than your ability to be perfect!

Focus on process goals, not outcome goals

This means focusing on ticking off the things you need to do daily in order to move toward your goal. The result then takes care of itself.

Focusing on the process gives you a constant source of motivation, as you feel like you are constantly accomplishing things.

If we only focus on the goal, then we risk not feeling good until we get there, which causes motivation to dip.

For example, instead of setting a goal as “lose X lbs” and constantly focusing on that, here’s what we do:

  1. 1) Set a goal
  2. 2) Break it down into smaller, process goal we need to do daily/weekly to get us there
  3. 3) “Forget” about the initial goal
  4. 4) Focus on the process goals, knowing that they are taking us toward our main goal

 

Check-ins

These are also SUPER important.

Check-ins are where we work together to help you get through any roadblocks you may have. This makes them especially important to do on the weeks where you are struggling the most!
