STRENGTH COACHING

WHAT I DO:  A long time ago, an amazing coach told me that "strength is more than the number of plates on the bar. It is everything that is overcome with each lift." 

I want YOU to be stronger. With increased strength comes increased confidence, self-sufficiency, resilience and a better life. Who can argue with increased lean muscle and stronger bones? 

Plus, it's pretty damn cool to learn the amazing things that your body is capable of, and starting to appreciate what it can DO. You're already strong inside. Let's make your outside match it. 

WHO IT'S FOR: Anyone who's newer to strength training, struggles with plateaus or injury, is interested in entering a powerlifting meet for the first time, or simply wants to build lean muscle, increase bone density, and make every day tasks easier. 
 

HABIT BASED NUTRITIONAL COACHING

WHAT I DO: I work with you to establish a realistic approach to nutrition that's sustainable for the long haul. Instead of focusing on restrictive lists of forbidden foods, we'll practice navigating nutrition in the real world, building healthy habits and learning how you can enjoy the foods you love in a way that allows you to achieve your goals. 

WHO IT'S FOR: Anyone that's tired of being "on and off the wagon," has wasted money and time on 21 day "fixes" and 30 day elimination challenges to no avail, anyone that's ready to find a healthier, more reasonable, and practical relationship with food.

 

 

RECHARGE

RECHARGE simply isn't your typical nutrition challenge. 

Sure, it's easy to print out EAT THIS/NOT THAT lists of food and follow the rules for 30 days (except sometimes it's not). 

And we all know that it's REALLY easy to go right back to your old bad habits the minute that challenge ends. 

Real life is hard. Real life is unpredictable. Real life is family functions, fancy restaurants, kids, unexpected work meetings, and sugar cravings. Real life is not balanced - real life is a teeter-totter. And when things get crazy, good habits are what will keep you afloat. RECHARGE is designed to help you design habits that will withstand even the most unpredictable times in your life. 

This isn't about eliminating any one particular food (although you may find that you feel, move and look better when you prioritize certain foods over others!) Instead, we'll work through adopting healthier habits as a group. Every two weeks, we'll focus on a different nutrition and fitness habit, building on each new practice as we go. We'll coach you on how simplify a particular habit if you're struggling, or dial it up if you feel like it's easy. Just like we all scale workouts differently, each habit can be scaled to meet you where you are and challenge you in a sustainable way. But at the end, we're all working together as a team at the same task, because we are #strongertogether. And as we say over and over, that's just how this whole community thing works. 

Be prepared - we'll encourage you to examine all aspects of your approach to nutrition and fitness. We'll push you a little out of your comfort zone. We'll ask you to work hard and try things that are new. We'll ask you to keep an open mind. But most importantly, we want you to have fun and help each other.  

If you're ready and willing to let go of everything that's held you back when it comes to how you eat, if you're ready to work hard and approach nutrition with a new attitude, RECHARGE is for you.

BARBELL BASICS

This starter package is designed for anyone that wants to learn the basics of the major barbell lifts (the deadlift, press, and squat) and/or dial in/refine your technique. It includes an intro consultation where we discuss your history with movement and your goals, as well as one hour-long session for each of the major lifts. You'll learn proper form from start to finish, including warmup and activation movements tailored to your body, as well as how to properly modify each lift if necessary to account for YOUR body and goals.

Ready to get stronger? Let's hang. 

What I Do: I work with you to establish realistic goals, focusing on long-term, sustainable solutions to moving and/or eating well that will make you feel satisfied, sane and strong. Want to get stronger? I'll teach you how to approach strength training no matter where you are, and together we'll make you into your strongest self. Most importantly, you'll learn to be self-sufficient! I'd love to work with you forever, but even more than that I want you to gain a sense of independence and autonomy when it comes to nutrition. There's joy to be found in eating and moving. Let's explore it together.

What I Don't Do: Assume you're in this to lose weight, prescribe complicated and restrictive meal plans, give you "Yes/No" lists of foods, shame you for "messing up," or promise that you'll lose 30 pounds in 30 days.  

Who I Work With: Anyone that's tired of being "on the wagon" and "off the wagon." Anyone that's intimidated by the free weight section of the gym and wants to learn to lift. Anyone that's ready to become more resilient and strong, no matter their age or experience level! 

I primarily train out of FUELhouse in Seattle but can also come to your gym or schedule remote consultations. For more information, please schedule a FREE 20 minute initial consult below or get in touch with any questions!
