Glen and Katrina spent the past 12 months transforming their eating habits, health, bodies, and lives with personal help from a PN coach. And now? They’re our latest Grand Prize winners. See how we surprised them with $25,000 each, and meet the rest of our July 2019 Precision Nutrition Coaching winners.

++++

Every six months, in our Precision Nutrition Coaching program, we give away more than $125,000 to the men and women who have the most incredible, inspiring body transformations.

Yep, that’s more than $250,000 a year.

And today, you’ll meet our latest amazing winners.

These folks started working with us in July 2018 and—over the course of the past year—completely transformed how they eat, move, look, and feel.

They lost weight, gained strength, boosted their health, and inspired their friends and families.

What’s more, they did all of this without extreme diets or crazy workout routines. There were no meal plans or off-limit foods. No unbreakable rules. No deprivation. And perhaps best of all, no guilt.

Each person simply committed to making a change, stayed consistent, and used the accountability and support of one of our dedicated coaches.

Age: 44 years

Katrina McKinney loved to run.

She started fifteen years ago, tackling her first marathon in 2008.

She loved logging the miles, loved the community, and loved the fact that running had helped her go from her heaviest adult weight to her lightest.

But she couldn’t sustain it.

Running 30 or 40 miles a week wasn’t always compatible with her busy work schedule, and inconsistency with that mileage opened the door to injury.

Also, while she knew a lot about fitness and nutrition, she couldn’t consistently apply her knowledge. It was tempting to look for the easy fix, like the latest supplement or the hot new trendy diet.

“I was always trying something,” Katrina says.

But in the end, Katrina’s nutrition and fitness efforts always felt random.

No matter what she did or what progress she made, she always seemed to return to the same old condition—tired, discouraged, and overweight.

Then she got married, and while her life got better, her fitness got worse.

After work, it was all too tempting to discuss the day with her husband, Keith, over a bottle of wine or an extra-large portion of their evening meal. She started skipping workouts and missing runs. Over time, those extra calories added up.

Finally, both Katrina and Keith reached a breaking point: They knew they had to do better.

After all, if they were struggling with health and fitness now, in early middle age, what would happen later?

“I wanted to set us up for a healthy future.”

Enter Precision Nutrition. Taking a leap of faith and investing in their long-term health, Katrina and Keith signed up for coaching—together.

It wasn’t long before their rituals began to change. Instead of bonding over a beer, they’d start the day with a gym date and close it with a conversation about that week’s nutrition habit or the most recent lesson in the program.

This mutual encouragement proved crucial to their success.

“Even though our experience was different, we were always there to support each other. It’s like we were on the same train, even if we sometimes rode in different cars.”

The kids also came along for the ride. “They weren’t always giddy about eating so many veggies,” Katrina admits. But they were game to try. “The youngest happens to love licorice. I’ll never forget her smile when I showed her that fennel smells and tastes like her favorite candy!”

It was that mindful approach to cooking, eating, exercise, and sleep that made the biggest difference to Katrina. Day after day, she made small, consistent efforts. She stopped thinking in terms of depriving herself. Instead, she took care of herself.

The number on the scale seemed to take care of itself, too.

For Katrina, watching her weight drop was a thrill. Better yet was the experience of flying through the hills on a long trail run, and feeling as energetic after the race as before it.

Best of all was her newfound ability to listen to herself, to trust her inner voice.

For example, that inner voice prompted Katrina to quit a 12-hour challenge race after seven hours in the heat and torrential rain. Instead of pushing herself beyond her limits, or just sticking it out to drink beer and eat junk food, she opted to leave–and enjoy a cozy supper with Keith.

Other times, the inner voice gave Katrina the encouragement she needed to decline that extra drink at a social event so she could prioritize sleep.

Often, Katrina’s inner voice nudged her to get outside and connect with nature. To listen to the babble of the stream, to feel the stones under her feet.

These days, people ask Katrina what she’s been doing to get so healthy and happy.

“Honestly, it isn’t hard,” she says. It’s really about slowing down, listening, making one small positive choice, and then another.

“Focus on the process instead of on outcomes. What you do to and with your body matters,” she says.

“Most of all, remember that you’re worth it.”

$25,000 Grand Prize Winner: Glen

Lost 52 lbs and 33 total inches!

Age: 57 years
Weight Lost: 52 lbs (from 243 lbs to 191 lbs)
Total Inches Lost: 33 inches (from 262 inches to 229 inches)

An avid rower, Glen Schultz knew it may be time for a change the day he tried to get in the racing shell—and wouldn’t fit.

Though active, Glen, like many of us, had arrived at middle age carrying some extra baggage around his middle.

He couldn’t squeeze into his suits, either. Invited to a wedding, he had to make a trip to the Goodwill store to find something formal to wear.

But these were just irritations. Annoying, yes, but also funny. It was the confrontations with mortality that Glen found harder to shrug off.

First, his wife’s mother passed away. Then, he lost his own mother. A former classmate died of a stroke.

And he found himself dwelling on the reality that in his mid-50s, he had fewer years ahead of him than behind. With a loving wife and two teenage boys to raise, he didn’t feel ready to cut those years even shorter.

His medical checkup was the final straw.

“You’re pre-diabetic,” his doctor told him, and then mentioned something about “medications.” That’s when Glen decided to take control of his health.

He signed up for Precision Nutrition Coaching, began to follow the habits and workouts, and bit by bit his mindset and waistline both started to change.

“In the past, I’d never really thought about how I eat,” he says.

Glen knew all about what he should eat, and why. But it turned out that slowing down, taking time, and reflecting on his choices made all the difference.

“Instead of going for that midnight ice cream, I’d write down how I was feeling.”

Afterwards, he might still hit the freezer for a snack, but he took a smaller portion and enjoyed it more.

Midway through his year of coaching he went for another checkup. This time, his blood work came back clear. He wasn’t pre-diabetic any more. And his GP had to cancel an upcoming appointment with a cardiologist.

Glen didn’t need it. His heart was in great shape.

That bin of “too small” clothes at the back of his closet? Now Glen found himself raiding it for something to wear.

In fact, he had to buy a new bin for the “too big” clothes.

The first item he tossed: that Goodwill suit he’d had to buy for the wedding a few months earlier.

Eventually, it got to the point where all his clothes were too big.

“I think I’ll have a ceremonial bonfire,” he laughs.

These days, Glen is rowing again. He bikes to work sometimes, and takes long walks on the weekends. His wife, who supported him from the start, has joined the coaching program herself, so they share their successes and challenges.

Glen’s old pattern was to do things the way he’d always done them and to fix every problem himself. To repair the broken bathtub, even though he didn’t know anything about fiberglass. To wear his hair the way he’d always worn it, even if it went against his natural part.

But his year of coaching has taught him the value of accepting help from the pros.

It turns out that bathtub repair guys really know how to work with fiberglass, barbers really understand hair, and PN coaches really know how to guide people towards greater fitness and health.

“You could wander in the vastness of what’s out there on the internet forever and get lost. Or you could ignore the flotsam and jetsam and get real help,” Glen says.

Also, you don’t need to be Michael Jordan or Lebron James to do this program.

“I can’t overstate it. This works for regular people. It really works.”

Total inches lost: 29″ (217″ to 188″)

As a perfectionist, if I wasn’t able to do everything perfectly, to a T, I would often fall into a ‘why bother’ mindset. What I love about PN is that it is made for ‘real-life,’ ‘normal’ people! At times it is almost too easy, but that is the beauty of it! If you just follow along, one step at a time, just trying to be ‘one percent better every day,’ you’ll see amazing, lasting, and sustainable results!

– Marie

I was looking for a program that would lead to positive, life-long, sustainable changes for my health and well-being. PN Coaching put me in control of my journey by providing thorough, well-researched information; lots of helpful advice; and supportive, empathetic, insightful coaching (much appreciated!). By helping me tailor my own program, I was choosing something meaningful and doable for me. I found that small changes done consistently led to amazing results.

As an avowed do-it-yourselfer, I spent a year studying the PN website and trying to follow the guidance on my own. I made some progress, but what a difference a year of PN Coaching made! Not only did I celebrate my 50th birthday leaner, healthier, and more confident than I had in decades, I got there in a way that felt natural, sustainable and easier than I ever imagined.

– Kathleen

$2,500 women’s Winner:

Age: 61 years

Weight Lost: 26 lbs (145 lbs to 119 lbs)

Total inches lost: 20″ (211″ to 191″)

Precision Nutrition is the “magic pill” I’ve been looking for most of my adult life. I’ve tried everything, but never experienced this success, which I achieved even while dealing with a new autoimmune inflammatory diagnosis that causes pain and a treatment that causes weight gain. It’s hard to believe that just over a year ago I could hardly walk, and although it has been an uphill climb it’s been worth every step. The daily inspiration, encouragement, and guidance I received from PN has touched every area of my life. I’m so very thankful to finally be healthy and fit enough to enjoy my retirement years (hopefully soon) and my grandchildren!

– Donna

Sarah

$1,000 women’s Winner:

Age: 24 years

Weight Lost: 45 lbs (180 lbs to 135 lbs)

I feel physically, mentally, and emotionally free. I’ve lost pounds and inches, and I gained a confident, happier, energetic lifestyle with a sense of purpose. By prioritizing my health, I am able to have the fullness of a life rooted in unshakable faith: in myself, in my relationships, and in my daily choices.

PN has sparked a real joy in me in learning again. I know now it is never, ever too late!

$1,000 women’s Winner:

Age: 40 years

Weight Lost: 20 lbs (125 lbs to 105 lbs)

Total inches lost: 17″ (198″ to 181″)

Having been a lifelong yoyo dieter, PN was going to be a last-ditch effort to get my eating under control and to make lasting changes. While it wasn’t all smooth sailing, I feel that PN taught me the fundamental skills and gave me the mindset to finally find balance in my life, stop obsessing over food, and get into the best shape of my life! Through PN’s lessons and the support of my coach, Denise, I developed the necessary tools to lead a healthy, balanced life.

– Sibylle

Age: 32 years

Weight Lost: 27 lbs (162 lbs to 135 lbs)

PN Coaching has been so much more than a physical transformation, it’s been a journey that’s transformed my mental capacity to understand my real strengths. I am convinced that small incremental changes over time make a big difference. I’m taking with me skills to make this a lifetime lifestyle change, and the motivation and desire to keep learning and continue to grow.

– Yami

$1,000 women’s Winner:

Age: 56 years

Weight Lost: 38 lbs (212 lbs to 174 lbs)

Total inches lost: 24″ (241″ to 217″)

– Cheryl

Michelle

$1,000 women’s Winner:

Age: 39 years

Weight Lost: 14 lbs (145 lbs to 131 lbs)

Total inches lost: 19″ (216″ to 197″)

I started out with PN desperate to lose weight. But at the end of this, what has really changed my life is what I have gained—healthy, sustainable habits; workouts that have challenged me and made me stronger; and unshakable confidence in my body and all the amazing things it can do. PN has helped me shift my entire way of thinking, and while I’m happy with my physical transformation, what I am really so grateful for are all the changes on the inside.

– Michelle

Sabrina

$1,000 women’s Winner:

Age: 46 years

Weight Lost: 57 lbs (252 lbs to 195 lbs)

Total inches lost: 28″ (278″ to 250″)

– Sabrina

Kelly

$1,000 women’s Winner:

Age: 54 years

Age: 34 years

Weight Lost: 27 lbs (181 lbs to 154 lbs)

Total inches lost: 20″ (230″ to 210″)

– Gavin

Rich

$10,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 59 years

Weight Lost: 39 lbs (213 lbs to 174 lbs)

Total inches lost: 22″ (242″ to 220″)

I joined PN to support my wife, with few expectations of my own. Along the way I admitted to myself that my hesitation to join had to do more with my own self-doubt and history. Previously, I had not kept up new eating habits, saw food as a reward, and hoped exercise would overcome bad eating habits. PN really helped me become more aware of my body’s signals and become more mindful of how these affect me, eventually leading to a physician- and wife-approved healthier me!

– Rich

Paddy

$2,500 men’s Winner:

Age: 44 years

Weight Lost: 64 lbs (225 lbs to 161 lbs)

Total inches lost: 34″ (248″ to 214″)

Over the past year I feel I’ve taken back control of body. I’ve learned to listen to my body to understand when I need rest and what food I need. The best thing over the past year: I’m pretty much pain-free.

– Paddy

Scott

$2,500 men’s Winner:

Age: 50 years

Weight Lost: 18 lbs (248 lbs to 230 lbs)

Total inches lost: 4″ (264″ to 260″)

PN Coaching was the catalyst for me to change my life and the direction it was heading. Knowing someone was there who ‘had my back’ allowed me to become accountable to myself and it brought out parts of me I had forgotten were there. Truly a life changing program physically, mentally and spiritually!

– Scott

Raj

$2,500 men’s Winner:

Age: 41 years

Weight Lost: 29 lbs (163 lbs to 134 lbs)

Total inches lost: 20″ (214″ to 194″)

The Precision Nutrition program does a stellar job of providing tools (presenting habits such as “Make Time,” “Eat to 80% Full,” and “Plan to eat Whole Foods”) through which you can restructure and reshape how you approach nutrition and fitness in your life. It enables a client to drive personal growth via INCREMENTAL change, which I’ve learned is the best way to achieve lasting change. Externally, I’ve lost 40+ pounds in the past 18 months, about 30 of that in the past year alone. Over the same timeframe, I’ve fundamentally changed my identity from someone who was just “getting older” to someone who clearly prioritizes nutrition and fitness and is a challenge-seeking leader.

– Raj

Wade

$2,500 men’s Winner:

Age: 47 years

Weight Lost: 26 lbs (190 lbs to 164 lbs)

Total inches lost: 21″ (242″ to 221″)

For me the PN Journey was all about my ‘inner game.’ I learned the outer, physical changes were not possible until I changed my inner-self. PN Coaching and specifically Coach Scott helped me recognize that my beliefs, old scripts, and the story I was telling myself were no longer serving me, and in fact weren’t even mine or true to begin with. As soon as I was able to analyze, question, and change them, everything started to change for the better. I felt a shift, improvement, or a ‘release’ in myself internally. With that, the external changes began to flow easily in all areas of my life.

– Wade

Jim

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 48 years

Weight Lost: 33 lbs (201 lbs to 168 lbs)

Total inches lost: 21″ (241″ to 220″)

Simply put, Precision Nutrition changed my relationship with food to a much healthier and sustainable one. By doing this, the changes in my life have gone beyond the basic measures of weight and girth. I feel more energized and more in control overall, and I even set a new personal best on a recent half marathon, by 16 minutes.

– Jim

Nathan

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 35 years

Weight Lost: 28 lbs (202 lbs to 174 lbs)

Total inches lost: 17″ (238″ to 221″)

Prior to PN, I didn’t really feel comfortable in my own skin. My body had changed over the past few years in ways I wasn’t happy with, and I felt helpless. However, as the year progressed, PN helped me build up habits and take control of my physical and mental health. Now I take the time each week to plan and prep for fun new recipes, and I get excited for my daily workouts, finding new ways to grow and challenge myself.

– Nathan

Ben

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 26 years

Weight Lost: 15 lbs (197 lbs to 182 lbs)

Total inches lost: 22″ (243″ to 221″)

My journey with PN has been incredible. I was challenged in ways I didn’t expect, and was taught the core skills I can use to stay healthy for the rest of my life. Getting fit is simply a decision: Once you make it, PN has you covered for the rest.

– Ben

Mike

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 38 years

Weight Lost: 28 lbs (213 lbs to 185 lbs)

Total inches lost: 15″ (248″ to 233″)

Precision Nutrition has been an amazing experience for me. The program has equipped me with straightforward tools and techniques that I can use forever to maintain long-lasting health. I couldn’t be happier with results.

– Mike

Charles

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 39 years

Weight Lost: 29 lbs (179 lbs to 150 lbs)

Total inches lost: 29″ (229″ to 200″)

Having been physically active for most of my life with martial arts, sports, and weight training, I hit a roadblock when I injured my back in my late 20s and had to stay in bed for nine months. Since then, I have been struggling with back pain, disk problems, etc., and I thought I was doomed to recurring injuries every few months. I thought I knew what I was doing because of my background in fitness, but PN has taught me things I never learned in all my years of training. I have been injury-free for the past eight months, and I feel better than I have in years! With my new priceless PN habits, I really have no words to say with how thankful I am! PN truly helped me change my mindset, my body, and the way I see life and myself in this world. I feel good, and I feel that I am more conscious and mindful of everything. Thank you, PN.

– Charles

Ashwin

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 31 years

Weight Lost: 26 lbs (174 lbs to 148 lbs)

Total inches lost: 8″ (225″ to 217″)

The biggest impact that PN Coaching has had on me is that I’ve BECOME that person who sees himself as someone who trains consistently, eats well most of the time, and takes good care of himself every day. Even though I used to train before and sort of knew the optimal food choices to make, there was always a gap between what I knew and what I ended up doing. PN has helped me develop the skillset required to effectively bridge this gap, and for that I’m forever grateful.

– Ashwin

James

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 54 years

Weight Lost: 32 lbs (221 lbs to 189 lbs)

Total inches lost: 22″ (259″ to 237″)

When I began with PN Coaching, I thought it was just a one-year program. It’s not; it’s a lifetime of healthy habits. PN Coaching taught me how to be engaged through the lessons and workouts, and to focus on the habits that helped me achieve the greatest reward: better health. This is my life now, and I have never felt mentally, physically, and emotionally healthier than I am right now. I am proud of what I have accomplished with the help of Coach Jonathan and the PN Team.

– James

John

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 44 years

Weight Lost: 37 lbs (203 lbs to 166 lbs)

Total inches lost: 26″ (247″ to 221″)

What has really changed for me in the course of this program is what has eluded me with every previous effort to finally ‘get in shape’: a sustainable lifestyle shift. The weight has come off, I’m stronger, healthier and more energetic, but more importantly, for the first time in my adult life, I’m confident that I can maintain it. It’s not one big thing, it’s everything: My entire lifestyle has changed over the course of a year.

– John

Confirm your choice for the Men’s $25,000 Grand Prize winner

When confirming your vote, it’s important to remember that we’re not rewarding the best bodies per se. We’re rewarding the most incredible transformations.

In Precision Nutrition Coaching, we certainly don’t expect folks to start off looking like fitness models. Heck, we don’t even expect folks to end up looking like fitness models.

We’re looking for winners who’ve made the most dramatic changes in their own bodies, starting from wherever they were at the beginning.

That’s because our coaching is for men and women of all shapes and sizes. And your vote should reflect who you think achieved the most dramatic changes over the last 12 months.

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post’s poll.

Want to transform your body just like these men did?

Most people know that regular movement, eating well, sleep, and stress management are important for looking and feeling better. Yet they need help applying that knowledge in the context of their busy, sometimes stressful lives.

Over the past 15 years, we’ve used the Precision Nutrition Coaching method to help over 100,000 clients lose fat, get stronger, and improve their health… for the long-term… no matter what challenges they’re dealing with.

It’s also why we work with health, fitness, and wellness professionals (through our Level 1 and Level 2 Certification programs) to teach them how to coach their own clients through the same challenges.

Interested in Precision Nutrition Coaching? Join the presale list; you’ll save up to 54% and secure a spot 24 hours early.

We’ll be opening up spots in our next Precision Nutrition Coaching on Wednesday, July 17th, 2019.

If you’re interested in coaching and want to find out more, I’d encourage you to join our presale list below. Being on the list gives you two special advantages.

  • You’ll pay less than everyone else. At Precision Nutrition we like to reward the most interested and motivated people because they always make the best clients. Join the presale list and you’ll save up to 54% off the general public price, which is the lowest price we’ve ever offered.
  • You’re more likely to get a spot. To give clients the personal care and attention they deserve, we only open up the program twice a year. Last time we opened registration, we sold out within minutes. By joining the presale list you’ll get the opportunity to register 24 hours before everyone else, increasing your chances of getting in.

If you’re ready to change your body, and your life, with help from the world’s best coaches, this is your chance.

[Note: If your health and fitness are already sorted out, but you’re interested in helping others, check out our Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification program].

The post Precision Nutrition Coaching: July 2019 Men’s Finalists. Help us give away $125,000! appeared first on Precision Nutrition.

Powered by WPeMatico

Only a year ago, these 25 women were feeling frustrated. They were inspired to eat healthier, move better, and feel stronger, but unsure how to make a change that would really stick.  

Now, after 12 months of Precision Nutrition Coaching, they’ve taken control of their health and fitness for good—transforming their health, bodies, and lives more than they ever thought possible.

They also have the chance to win part of the $125,000 in prize money we’ve committed to our latest round of top clients. Scroll through these amazing photos and vote for the finalist whose transformation inspires you most.

++++

Every year in Precision Nutrition Coaching, we help men and women from around the world dramatically improve their eating habits, exercise routine, and lifestyle.

They lose fat, gain strength, and completely transform their bodies, health, fitness, and lives.

We also give them a big, motivating goal to shoot for: $250,000 in cash prizes.

Consider it an antidote to the “you must suffer and feel guilty to get in shape” message you typically get from the fitness industry.

See, women come to us wanting big changes:

  • They want to lose weight and/or shed body fat.
  • They want to gain strength and/or lean mass.
  • They want to make healthier food choices, consistently.
  • They want to feel at ease, instead of stressed out, around food.
  • They want to feel confident and comfortable in their own skin.
  • They want to start doing all the awesome things they’ve always wanted to do, but thought they couldn’t.

Above all, they want to become the fittest, strongest, healthiest versions of themselves.

In our experience, big, inspiring, life-changing goals like these are a whole lot easier to achieve when there’s a huge bonus up for grabs.

So, every six months, we divvy up a big pot of prize money for the best transformations among our male and female clients.

For the current group—which started in July 2018 and is wrapping up now—we’ve once again committed $125,000.

And right now, we need your help to choose our Women’s Grand Prize winner.

Help choose our Women’s Grand Prize winner (Top prize = $25,000)

The women below started their Precision Nutrition Coaching journey in all shapes and sizes.

They’re a diverse group with one important thing in common: They finally achieved the bodies and health they’ve wanted for a long time, and they’re confident they’ll stay this way for good.

How’d they do it?

No crash diets. No Biggest Loser-type bootcamps. And no full-time chefs.

Just research-based nutrition and lifestyle habits practiced daily with personalized help from our expert coaches.

To vote for the woman you think should win the $25,000 Grand Prize, scroll through the photos below. Make your choice by clicking the “Vote for Finalist” button under the one you think achieved the best transformation.

But please don’t stop there. Once you’ve seen all the finalists and selected your #1 choice, scroll down to the bottom of this post.

At the bottom you’ll need to verify your choice. To do this, click the “Place your vote” button. This will log your vote and help us make our decision.

At more than 250 pounds, Alana Wylie-Reeves found herself uncomfortable, frustrated, and immobile. The biggest obstacle she faced in her efforts toward better movement and health? A deep-seated aversion to change. Here’s how she found the resilience to embrace discomfort — and lose more than 60 pounds in the process.

++++

Two years ago, Alana Wylie-Reeves couldn’t bend over to pick something up from the ground.

“If I dropped something on the floor, it had to stay there. I had zero mobility,” says Alana, 54. “If I forgot something in the laundry room in the basement, I’d have to think about how I was going to get back down the two flights of stairs to get it.”

Alana’s weight had yo-yoed for years. At her heaviest, Alana weighed 257 pounds.

“I remember once I went to stand on a step ladder, but the maximum weight was 225. I couldn’t even stand on a ladder to change a light bulb,” she recalls.

At the same time, she was having more and more trouble getting through her shifts working in the paint department at Home Depot in Edmonton, Alberta.

“There is a lot of bending, moving, and lifting at my work. It’s pretty physically demanding and I was having a really hard time with it.”

Alana poses for one of her first progress photos of Precision Nutrition Coaching.

Alana had tried diets and the occasional workout video, but they didn’t become habits that stuck.

“The weight would come tumbling back because nothing in my life would change. I just couldn’t find a way of eating that I could live with.”

But as challenging and at times painful as Alana’s life had become, in some ways it seemed more comfortable to her than the alternative: changing.

“As an only child of a single parent, we moved a lot, always trying to keep the paycheck ahead of the rent,” Alana explains. “I experienced a lot of change. Unwanted change, at that. Change I had no control over whatsoever.”

As a result, throughout adulthood Alana’s aversion to change deepened. She consciously avoided disruption at all costs — including her health.

“I used to walk around saying, ‘I hate change’. I was living my life to avoid being uncomfortable. I was scared to make changes because it was uncomfortable and scary.”

On top of it all, like many moms Alana found herself prioritizing her family over her own needs and wellbeing.

“My sacrifices, it seemed, were always for the greater good of the family,” she reflects. “But do that long enough and you begin to give up the effort to discern what really matters to you.”

Considering the barriers she was facing, Alana recognized that she’d need help if she wanted to clear them and find a path to health and fitness.

At the thought of having some support, Alana decided that, uncomfortable or not, it was time to make a change.

She was determined to figure out a way of eating that would help her lose weight and stay healthy for the long term.

Enter the Precision Nutrition Coaching program.

Alana started PN Coaching and very quickly realized that the road to change would require getting a little more comfortable with discomfort.

Take, for example, one of the first habits in PN Coaching: eating to 80 percent full.

“If you’re practicing the habit, you’re likely experiencing a little discomfort and resistance,” says Alana. “We’re also asked to reflect on how we have dealt with uncomfortable things in the past.”

Persisting with the habit, and reflecting on how it made her feel, helped Alana realize that she could, in fact, tolerate change.

PN lessons often encourage clients to practice getting out of their comfort zone, a little bit at a time. As time went on, rather than resisting the discomfort, Alana gradually found herself choosing to embrace it.

“In the beginning my workouts were just five minutes of walking. That was it,” she recalls. “But as I progressed, I began to apply the idea [of embracing discomfort] in a physical way. For example, taking that difficult lunge just a titch past comfortable, running a bit when I was on my walks just to try it out, that sort of thing.”

Alana practices getting outside of her comfort zone during a workout.

Alana was discovering that she did, in fact, possess the skill needed for leaning in to change: resilience.

But would her resilience, her acceptance of change, stick?

Throughout Alana’s time at PN, she faced many challenges in her personal life — the kinds of challenges that had kept her from her goals in the past.

Her mother needed help with one of her rental properties, and Alana threw herself into the six-week project, finding herself 10 pounds heavier than before.

“I stopped exercising and went into junk food free-fall. I think of it now with horror — but that was my ‘normal’ back then: Work hard, don’t exercise and eat junk!”

Her second born child came out as transgender. “It rocked the immediate family,” Alana explains.

Her mother was in and out of the hospital due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. “Learning to meet her needs, while continuing to meet my own, is new to me,” Alana says.

She injured her back in a Spartan Race.

Alana went from too immobile to pick something up off the floor to competing in Spartan Races — willingly — in the course of 18 months.

But through these rough waters, Alana stayed the course.

“I remember being really discouraged, but I stayed in touch with Coach Lisanne. We had frequent coaching calls, and she reminded me that I was resilient — just for showing back up!”

Getting out of her comfort zone paid off.

Alana dropped pounds, gained mobility, and went from not being able to bend over to doing squats, deadlifts, and modified push-ups.

Today, at 196 pounds— 61 pounds lighter than when she started — everyday movement is no longer a hindrance.

“The other night, I forgot something in the laundry room and didn’t even think twice about it. I ran down two stories and didn’t even hesitate,” she says. “And I can do things like squat down and rearrange leftovers in the fridge. I couldn’t do that before.”

Alana now sees herself as someone who lives life at the edge of her comfort zone.

“Gradually, my story around change, well, changed,” she reflects. “Change wasn’t something I needed to be wary of. It became something I could embrace, a little bit at a time. With help from my coach, I integrated the idea that I am someone who can allow change—and a lot of it—into my identity.”

With her newfound zest for life, she’s even pursuing a life-long dream to be an interior designer/decorator, and re-started a certificate program she began about 15 years ago.

Turns out, embracing discomfort has a surprisingly pleasant side-effect: happiness.

Post-transformation, Alana’s family has never seen her happier.

“One of my sons was saying yesterday he has never seen me happier in my life,” says Alana.

And she’s just getting started.

“I have more energy for life. Most people my age are slowing down and looking at retirement and relaxing. I feel like I’m 25 years old. The last 20 years were awful, so I’m going to make the next 25 great.”

Jen and Nathaniel spent the past 12 months transforming their eating habits, health, bodies, and lives with personal help from a PN coach. And now? They’re our latest Grand Prize winners. See how we surprised them with $25,000 each, and meet the rest of our January 2019 Precision Nutrition Coaching winners.

++++

Every six months, in our Precision Nutrition Coaching program, we give away more than $125,000 to the men and women who have the most incredible, inspiring body transformations.

Yep, that’s more than $250,000 a year.

And today, you’ll meet our latest amazing winners.

These folks started working with us in January 2018 and—over the course of the past year—completely transformed how they eat, move, look, and feel.

They lost weight, gained strength, boosted their health, and inspired their friends and families.

What’s more, they did all of this without extreme diets or crazy workout routines. There were no meal plans or off-limit foods. No unbreakable rules. No deprivation. And perhaps best of all, no guilt.

Each person simply committed to making a change, stayed consistent, and used the accountability and support of one of our dedicated coaches.

$25,000 Grand Prize Winner: Jen

Lost 54 lbs and 43 total inches!

Age: 42 years
Weight Lost: 54 lbs (from 182 lbs to 128 lbs)
Total Inches Lost: 43 inches (from 234 inches to 191 inches)

Nobody could ever accuse Jen Kruczek of being a couch potato.

She plays softball. Flag football. Indoor soccer.

She loves boxing. Tennis. Swimming. Yoga. Running.

“I hate having to choose,” she laughs. “I want to do it all!”

Jen’s athleticism had always been key to her identity. There was just one little problem: By the time she turned 40, her performance just wasn’t what it used to be.

Her joints felt stiffer. She tired more easily. She couldn’t always follow through on her softball coach’s suggestions.

And a series of five hamstring injuries in a year and a half didn’t help.

Nothing in Jen’s life had given her the same pleasure and sense of fulfillment as movement. And now, movement was becoming… complicated.

Was this the start of a downward spiral?

The prospect of losing mobility and strength was so upsetting that it forced Jen to ask herself a difficult question.

Could her struggles in the gym and on the field be traced to the 40 or 50 extra pounds she was carrying?

Weight had always been an issue for Jen. She’d try a diet, lose fifteen or twenty pounds, go off the diet, and quickly regain. It was demoralizing. She was tired of living that way.

Even worse was the frustration she felt. She wasn’t ignorant. She understood the basics of healthy eating.

She knew what she was supposed to do. So why was it so hard to make the change?

Jen knew she needed a true game changer. Reading about Precision Nutrition Coaching’s daily lessons appealed to her orderly, organized side. It seemed like the kind of program that could help her trade less healthy habits for better ones… for good.

With her coach and fellow clients providing support and accountability, Jen put down the cheese curls. Stopped going for takeout every day after the gym. Learned how to make mindful choices in the break room at work when the aroma of homemade donuts or bagels enticed her.

Slowly but surely, she started losing weight. Still, she didn’t realize how well the program was working until her ninth month, when she signed up for a half marathon.

Jen had run about a dozen half marathons in the past. But each successive run had seemed just a little bit tougher. In fact, she’d made her best time on her very first race back when she was 30.

Looking ahead, she didn’t think she’d ever be able to top that.

Imagine her surprise when, at the age of 42, she finished a full ten minutes ahead of her previous record. “When I started this program, I just wanted to avoid injuring myself so much,” she says.

Now, she’s not only injury-free, but she’s also performing at a higher level.

“That extra weight was dragging me down. Now it’s gone.”

Jen lives on Cape Cod. On the beach, she’s seen older people who can barely walk in the heavy sand or who struggle to stand up once they’ve settled themselves on a beach towel.

“Thinking about my future, I didn’t want to end up that way,” she says. Instead, she wanted to be like the vibrant 70-year-old who plays on her softball team. Or the women in their sixties who still play soccer with her.

“I want to become that active older person.” Precision Nutrition gave her the tools to make her dream a reality.

Her advice for anyone chasing their own transformation dream?

“Give yourself a year,” she says. “And trust the process.”

$25,000 Grand Prize Winner: Nathaniel

Lost 54 lbs and 42 total inches!

Age: 36 years
Weight Lost: 54 lbs (from 289 lbs to 235 lbs)
Total Inches Lost: 42 inches (from 295 inches to 253 inches)

At 35, Nathaniel knew he had a weight problem.

Indeed, he’d had a weight problem for most of his life.

In 4th grade, he already weighed in at 140 pounds. By high school graduation, he was over 275. And in his early thirties, he’d really let himself go.

Still, he figured he was healthy. He was young, and he’d always been active.

Then, he suddenly found himself in an emergency room waiting for a heart catheterization test. His blood pressure medication wasn’t working. “I failed a stress test,” he recalls. “They had to stop it partway through.”

Hang on, he thought.

“If I don’t make a change, I could die soon.”

Nathaniel credits a friend for guiding him toward Precision Nutrition. “He was a finalist himself a few years back. He knew the company was reliable.”

With his friend’s recommendation, Nathaniel committed himself to the program.

Right from the start, he treated it like a second job. He completed every lesson. Showed up for every workout. Put himself on the line by telling almost everybody he knew about his weight loss plan.

He even promised his kids that if he won, he’d take them to Disneyland. “When a 6-year-old is depending on you, that’s a lot of pressure,” he laughs.

The process wasn’t always easy.

While his family and friends supported him, they didn’t share his goal, so sometimes they’d be eating his favorite foods while he opted for a Tupperware container filled with something lighter.

Even on family vacations, he planned ahead of time and sometimes even brought along his own food to ensure he would have healthy options to choose from.

“They thought I was crazy,” he remembers.

And while he looked forward to exercising most days, there were inevitably some afternoons when he just didn’t feel like going to the gym. On top of that, he had to find ways to work around significant injuries at two different points during the program.

First, he tore his plantar fascia, the connective tissue that spans the bottom of the foot. This confined him to a walking boot and temporarily put an end to any running.

Since running was out of the question, he turned to rowing for aerobic conditioning. But rowing turned out to be a physical and mental trial.

When he started, he could barely squeeze out 11 minutes on the machine. That wasn’t exactly encouraging.

Still, there’d been signs of improvement, and those small progressions were enough to spark his hope and keep him going.

Take his hypertension, for example. About four months into coaching, around the time of that first injury, he started experiencing some weird symptoms again.

Turns out, his blood pressure wasn’t spiking. Instead, it was bottoming out! He’d improved so much that his doctors had to reduce his medications.

And by Nathaniel’s eleventh month—when he tore his biceps tendon playing touch football—eleven minutes of rowing was just a warm up for the two hours he could now sustain.

Not only that, but he’d also been off all blood pressure medications for six months.

Changing the way he ate and moved was only the start.

“I learned to see setbacks as challenges, not excuses,” he explains.

As Nathaniel’s health improved and his mindset shifted, his whole family took note. The changes in his mentality rubbed off.

Today, his wife is taking steps to pursue an important dream of her own.

His older daughter works out with him at the gym.

And his younger daughter’s getting ready to pack for Disneyland.

“I look like a different person now,” Nathaniel reflects. “But the outward changes are nothing compared to the inner changes. I’ve strengthened my mind even more than my body.”

Best of all, he’s healthy.

“At the beginning, this goal seemed so lofty, so unattainable,” he says. Now, he’s eager to tackle new challenges in every facet of his life.

After all, why settle for peak fitness?

At first, PN Coaching was all about losing the excess weight I’d been carrying around for the last ten years. But as my year progressed, my journey became much more than that. Through the lessons, which were eerily timely to exactly what I was going through or thinking, I regained my old self: a person with healthy self-esteem, confidence, pride, a positive outlook, good relationships, and LOTS of energy. I now look forward to working out, sweating and—ahem—flexing my muscles. I wake up happy every morning, and I know this is due to the results I’ve achieved. I practically bounce out of bed feeling great about myself and looking forward to another new day and a chance to be active.

Age: 54 years

Weight Lost: 32 lbs (224 lbs to 192 lbs)

Total inches lost: 31″ (260″ to 229″)

I’ve gone from someone in pain and barely able to move to someone who does lunges and squats while cleaning the house. I can run two flights of stairs when I forget the laundry in the basement, and I didn’t mind a two-kilometer backtrack in the mountains this summer to avoid a grizzly bear and her cubs. I am proud of my body and what it’s able to do. Oh, and there was that Spartan race I did—and more I plan to do. My whole life has changed. I’m back in school, pursuing a life-long dream, and I’m excited about my life.

In short, just when the caterpillar thought the end of the world had come… it turned into a butterfly. That, in a nutshell, is the impact of PN on one year of my life (and continuing!).

Age: 70 years

Weight Lost: 29 lbs (164 lbs to 135 lbs)

Total inches lost: 27″ (230″ to 203″)

Precision Nutrition, for me, was never a ‘diet.’ PN just gently, persistently, consistently, and compassionately guided me into a new paradigm.

Age: 62 years

Weight Lost: 24 lbs (141 lbs to 117 lbs)

I’ve been thinking a lot about how to handle the incredible sense of POSSIBILITY and ABILITY I’ve gained through PN Coaching. As my physical body gets leaner and smaller, everything else—confidence, body awareness, and the sense of what is possible—not just in terms of fitness and nutrition, but in life, has expanded.

– Tracie

Meet our other Men’s winners:

Warren

$10,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 44 years

Weight Lost: 58 lbs (225 lbs to 167 lbs)

Total inches lost: 45″ (261″ to 216″)

Before Precision Nutrition Coaching, I was a yo-yo exerciser and a chronic dieter. I would follow a plan for three months, take maybe 6 months off, and then go back on for a month. On and on it went. I was 225 pounds, and I had back problems and severe vertigo from Meniere’s disease, which had me bedridden multiple times a month. But, I decided to commit to 12 months of coaching, and I put my trust in the program. The lessons and exercises were easy to follow, and helped me form habits that will continue well after the program has finished. Fast forward to today: My back (as well as the rest of my body) is stronger, and the pain has disappeared. My last vertigo episode was almost a year ago. I’m the lightest and fittest I’ve been in over 20 years, I have more energy, and I’m more engaged with my work and with my family. I cannot thank the PN program and coaches enough. They’ve helped me achieve so much.

– Warren

Regan

$10,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 29 years

Weight Lost: 43 lbs (191 lbs to 148 lbs)

Total inches lost: 26″ (237″ to 211″)

Precision Nutrition freed me from the ‘paralysis by analysis’… when you overthink nutrition and exercise to the point that you’re left not knowing what to do… so you don’t do anything at all. When I finally allowed myself to let go of the minutia and just trust the program, things started to shift. I’m amazed at how much success I achieved. PN helped me build a foundation free of nutrition and fitness BS.

– Regan

Scott

$2,500 men’s Winner:

Age: 43 years

Weight Lost: 64 lbs (272 lbs to 208 lbs)

Total inches lost: 37″ (276″ to 239″)

Precision Nutrition Coaching has helped me reconnect with my health and fitness. I used to be very passive about my health, but now I’ve become an active participant. I’ve learned how my body responds to different foods, exercise, and stressors, and now I know how to support myself with nutrition, fitness, and the right mindset so I can achieve my goals. The program brought me to a better nutritional, physical, and mental state.

– Scott

Kevin

$2,500 men’s Winner:

Age: 44 years

Weight Lost: 36 lbs (166 lbs to 130 lbs)

Total inches lost: 31″ (232″ to 201″)

Precision Nutrition Coaching has been the best investment in my health that I’ve ever made. Not only is my body fat lower, and my energy, endurance and strength better, but my problem solving skills and choices are healthier, too. The lessons, habits, and coaching tear down unhealthy thinking and build up wise, creative thinking that leads to improving physical wellbeing.

– Kevin

Michael

$2,500 men’s Winner:

Age: 54 years

Weight Lost: 32 lbs (186 lbs to 154 lbs)

Total inches lost: 24″ (234″ to 210″)

My Precision Nutrition Coaching experience has been awesome. It has been a year of learning and understanding my body and how it relates to food. I have finally learned how to eat according to my body’s cues. Not only did I lose weight, but I’m also now the leanest and strongest I’ve ever been.

– Michael

Tony

$2,500 men’s Winner:

Age: 48 years

Weight Lost: 45 lbs (259 lbs to 214 lbs)

Total inches lost: 25″ (270″ to 245″)

Precision Nutrition Coaching guided me through a total transformation, extending beyond pounds and inches lost. With PN’s guidance, I learned how to think, eat, and act in a way that promotes and sustains health and well-being as a lifestyle.

– Tony

Vincent

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 60 years

Weight Lost: 14 lbs (200 lbs to 186 lbs)

Total inches lost: 5″ (246″ to 241″)

My Precision Nutrition experience brought me so much more than weight loss. I’ve lost weight dozens of times over the years, but this time I discovered a lot about myself and developed a new relationship with food. I will carry this with me for the rest of my life. Precision Nutrition doesn’t tell you what to do. It showed me the path so I could decide what works best for me and my lifestyle. PN helped me stay accountable while still being human. PN allows for and even expects mistakes, setbacks, and failure. We all fail at times and that’s ok. It’s accepting failure and moving on that leads to success. I’ve learned the value of sleep, rest, stress reduction, and nutrition. Thanks to Precision Nutrition, the weight is lost forever. My cholesterol, blood pressure, and lab tests have all improved significantly, too. I move better, my inflammation is dramatically reduced, and for the first time in decades am relatively pain-free.

– Vincent

Rodney

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 49 years

Weight Lost: 54 lbs (271 lbs to 217 lbs)

Total inches lost: 29″ (244″ to 215″)

Trying to put my experience this year into words is difficult for me. I look back to when I started and how I thought and felt about exercising and eating, and I realize why I couldn’t ever achieve consistency in my health before. I used to think I was lazy, that I had no motivation, that I wasn’t an athlete, and that exercising was a chore to get done. Food was something to limit and control, and certain foods were just off limits. I didn’t see how food could be a tool, and that I had the opportunity to choose things to benefit my health. This year has been this slow, gradual change that has transformed the way I view health and life. So many eating and exercising programs use a “copy and paste” approach: “Do this exactly like I did and you will see these results.” Precision Nutrition Coaching is instead a process of self discovery. It helps you create a life of health that works for you, whatever stage you’re at. The habits and principles PN teaches are flexible and adaptable to anyone’s life. I joined PN because I wanted to lose some weight, but I quickly discovered that PN was so much more than a weight loss program: It was a complete shift in my approach to health. I’ve lost lots of weight, but most importantly, I’ve learned to see myself and my life in a different way. And I learned the consistency I needed in order to accomplish my goals.

– Rodney

Dan

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 42 years

Weight Lost: 36 lbs (217 lbs to 181 lbs)

Total inches lost: 21″ (241″ to 220″)

For years, I’ve struggled with the mental, physical, and emotional roller coaster of weight loss and gain. That’s because I was focusing on the wrong goals and purpose. With the help of Precision Nutrition Coaching, I’ve finally found the true purpose and value of my health and fitness. It’s the glue my life has been missing.

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 47 years

Weight Lost: 22 lbs (193 lbs to 171 lbs)

Total inches lost: 13″ (235″ to 222″)

I have learned that through changing behaviors steadily over time, the process of getting in better shape takes care of itself. Precision Nutrition gave me the tools I needed to succeed, and habits I can sustain for a lifetime.

Alisdair

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 47 years

Weight Lost: 46 lbs (229 lbs to 183 lbs)

Total inches lost: 23″ (246″ to 223″)

Like most people, I knew what to eat. What I had forgotten was how to eat. Over this past year, Precision Nutrition Coaching helped me realize this, and it taught me good habits so I could develop a better relationship with food. It also empowered me to take responsibility for my health. This results in the holy grail of sustainable change.

– Alisdair

Jonas

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 32 years

Weight Lost: 52 lbs (225 lbs to 173 lbs)

Total inches lost: 34″ (253″ to 219″)

The most important thing that I’ve learned from Precision Nutrition Coaching is that I am not tied to any of the past struggles I’ve had with fitness. I’ve changed my mindset. I now know that every second of every day is an opportunity to make choices that lead to a better life. Being able to stay present in the moment has helped me take steps to remain consistent and develop good habits that have stuck with me and will continue to do so.

– Jonas

Marc

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 50 years

Weight Lost: 28 lbs (208 lbs to 180 lbs)

Total inches lost: 5″ (235″ to 230″)

This last year with Precision Nutrition has been one of balance. Finding balance at the gym, in nutrition, and in life have been lessons that have been at the forefront of my PN education. From balancing my family life, my professional life, and my nutritional education, to balancing my go-to, “all or nothing” attitude in the gym, PN has taught me how to keep my life in perspective. It’s allowed me to develop a healthy lifestyle at work and at home, and it’s taught me the principles of healthy eating that I now incorporate into my everyday routine.

Of course, if you’re interested in working toward a body or health transformation of your own, consider joining our next Precision Nutrition Coaching group. We’re opening up a few spots in the coming weeks.

Want to transform your body too?

As you probably know, you won’t overhaul your body this dramatically by counting calories, logging time on a treadmill, or reading health tips on Twitter. 

Awesome, lasting, wow-what-happened-to-you transformations usually require personal attention from an expert coach.

And here’s the good news: Precision Nutrition Coaching will be accepting new clients very soon, at our lowest, most accessible price ever.

If you’re interested and want to find out more, I’d encourage you to join our presale list.

Being on the presale list gives you two special advantages.

  • You’ll pay less than everyone else. At Precision Nutrition we like to reward the most interested and motivated people because they always make the best clients. Join the presale list and you’ll save up to 54% off the general public price, which is the lowest price we’ve ever offered.
  • You’re more likely to get a spot. To give clients the personal care and attention they deserve, we only open up the program twice a year. Last time we opened registration, we sold out within minutes. By joining the presale list you’ll get the opportunity to register 24 hours before everyone else, increasing your chances of getting in.

[Note: If your health and fitness are already sorted out, but you’re interested in helping others, check out our Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification program].

If you’re ready to change your body, and your life, with help from the world’s best coaches, this is your chance.

Just one year ago, these 20 guys were stressed, out of shape, and tired of wanting the fitter body they just couldn’t seem to pull off. Now, after 12 months of Precision Nutrition Coaching, they’ve transformed their health, their bodies, and their lives.

They also have the chance to take home part of the $125,000 in prize money we’ve once again committed to this latest round of top clients. Scroll through these amazing photos and vote for the finalist whose transformation impresses you most.

Every year in Precision Nutrition Coaching, we help men and women from around the world dramatically improve their eating habits and lifestyle.

They lose weight, gain strength, and completely transform their bodies, health, and fitness.

We also give them a big, motivating goal to shoot for: $250,000 in cash prizes.

Consider it an antidote to the “you must suffer and feel guilty to get in shape” message you typically get from the fitness industry.

See, guys come to us wanting big changes:

  • They want to lose weight, build muscle, and shed body fat.
  • They want to feel physically and mentally strong.
  • They want to make healthier food choices, consistently.
  • They want to stop worrying about their health.
  • They want to start doing all the awesome things they previously wanted to do but thought they couldn’t.

Above all, they want to become the fittest, strongest, healthiest versions of themselves.

In our experience, big, inspiring, life-changing goals like these are a whole lot easier to achieve when there’s a huge bonus at stake.

So, every six months, we divvy up a big pot of prize money for the best transformations among our male and female clients.

For the current group—which started in January 2018 and is wrapping up now—we’ve committed $125,000.

And right now, we need your help to choose our Men’s Grand Prize winner.

Help choose our Men’s Grand Prize winner (Top prize = $25,000)

The guys below started their Precision Nutrition Coaching journey in all shapes and sizes, and they hail from all parts of the globe. They’re a diverse group with one thing in common: They finally have the bodies and health they’ve wanted for a long time, and they’re confident they’ll stay this way for good.

How’d they do it?

No crash diets. No Biggest Loser-type bootcamps. And no full-time chefs.

Just research-based nutrition and lifestyle habits practiced daily with personalized help from our expert coaches.

To vote for the guy you think should win the $25,000 Grand Prize, scroll through the photos below. Make your choice by clicking the “Vote for Finalist” button under the one you think achieved the best transformation.

But please don’t stop there. Once you’ve seen all the finalists and selected your #1 choice, scroll down to the bottom of this post.

Confirm your choice for the Men’s $25,000 Grand Prize winner

When confirming your vote, it’s important to remember that we’re not rewarding the best bodies per se. We’re rewarding the most incredible transformations.

In Precision Nutrition Coaching, we certainly don’t expect folks to start off looking like fitness models. Heck, we don’t even expect folks to end up looking like fitness models.

We’re looking for winners who’ve made the most dramatic changes in their own bodies, starting from wherever they were at the beginning.

That’s because our coaching is for men and women of all shapes and sizes. And your vote should reflect who you think achieved the most dramatic changes over the last 12 months.

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post’s poll.

Want to transform your body just like these men did?

Most people know that regular movement, eating well, sleep, and stress management are important for looking and feeling better. Yet they need help applying that knowledge in the context of their busy, sometimes stressful lives.

Over the past 15 years, we’ve used the Precision Nutrition Coaching method to help over 100,000 clients lose fat, get stronger, and improve their health… for the long-term… no matter what challenges they’re dealing with.

It’s also why we work with health, fitness, and wellness professionals (through our Level 1 and Level 2 Certification programs) to teach them how to coach their own clients through the same challenges.

Interested in Precision Nutrition Coaching? Join the presale list; you’ll save up to 54% and secure a spot 24 hours early.

We’ll be opening up spots in our next Precision Nutrition Coaching on Wednesday, January 9th, 2019.

If you’re interested in coaching and want to find out more, I’d encourage you to join our presale list below. Being on the list gives you two special advantages.

  • You’ll pay less than everyone else. At Precision Nutrition we like to reward the most interested and motivated people because they always make the best clients. Join the presale list and you’ll save up to 54% off the general public price, which is the lowest price we’ve ever offered.

As a devoted runner, fitness was just a way of life for Daniel Hayes. So when his health threw him a curveball and he wound up on meds that slowed his metabolism, none of his usual approaches to weight maintenance worked. Now, 35 pounds later, he’s fit again, and an inspiration to his young son.

++++

When you’re an avid marathoner, you expect your body to obey.

You run more miles each week; your body readily responds with improved conditioning and endurance.

You dial up protein and vegetables, your body snaps to attention with more muscle and less fat.

But in 2008, at the age of 38, the easy cause-and-effect, master-and-servant relationship that Daniel Hayes had with his body suddenly reversed.

While training for his fifth marathon, Daniel, of Chicago, Illinois, began experiencing a heartburn-like sensation every time his heart rate went above a certain point.

Knowing his body well enough to be concerned, he made an appointment with a cardiologist. The exam revealed a problem that would change the course of his life: One of his arteries was 90 percent blocked.

If he hadn’t caught it, Daniel’s doctors said his condition would have culminated in a fatal heart attack.

Now with stents in two coronary arteries and working his way through cardiac rehabilitation, Daniel was recovering well and started running again. But his body wasn’t the same.

“One of the unfortunate things is that I was put on a heavy dose of statins and a beta-blocker, which really slowed down my metabolism,” Daniel says.

“I gained about 30 pounds over the next 5 or 6 years just from the meds alone.”

Although he had years of experience maintaining a fit body, Daniel discovered his tried-and-true strategies no longer worked. They were simply no match for his new health realities.

What’s more, the time he could devote to figuring out a nutrition and fitness approach that would work was more limited than ever.

For one thing, Daniel was spending lots of time caring for his mother, who was struggling with dementia and, sadly, eventually passed away in 2013.

Meanwhile, the company he worked for was bought out, and Daniel found himself dealing with the pressures and commitments that come when you know your job is on the rocks.

Thankfully, there was a bright spot too: The birth of his first son. But as any new parent soon finds out, caring for a small child doesn’t usually increase the amount of time you’re able to dedicate to nutrition and fitness.

Daniel at his heaviest, the result of a slowed metabolism plus lots of competing priorities.

Though he continued to exercise, Daniel no longer felt like the fit, healthy guy he once was.

By 2015, with his weight not budging from his new high of 238, it was clear to Daniel that he needed to try something different. He couldn’t expect a quick fix; that ship had sailed.

“I just looked myself in the eye and said, ‘I’ve got do something about this. I need to be healthy. Especially for my wife and son.’”

Enter Precision Nutrition Coaching.

Daniel realized that in order to lose weight in a way that worked with his medications, health history, and demanding life, he would need some help.

So he researched nutrition coaching options online, and liked what he read about PN’s habits-based approach.

He would need to “meet himself where he was” and focus on sustainable practices rather than short-term hacks.

So he dug into the PN program’s habits and gradually changed his approach to food.

One of the biggest changes? Eating slowly to 80 percent full — a lifelong “anchor” practice that helps you reconnect with your metabolism and hunger cues.

Daniel realized he had gotten used to feeling completely stuffed after meals.

“My parents grew up during the depression and I think that’s where my habits came from,” explains Daniel. “You had to finish everything on your plate. Nothing could be wasted. I grew up with that mindset, so it was a hard one to break through.”

After a year in the program, Daniel had added muscle mass (and lots of strength), and lost about 12 pounds of body fat. Plus, by trying out activities he hadn’t done before, he learned to think of movement and exercise as enjoyable rather than an obligation.

But the biggest transformation after that first year? The depth of his self-knowledge.

A slowed metabolism paired with deep-seated clean-your-plate habits don’t resolve overnight. So six months after finishing the program, Daniel realized that he missed the support and accountability of having a nutrition coach.

Daniel knew he had more healthy-habit practicing to do, and more weight he wanted to lose. He was on a longer journey than he’d realized — and that was ok.

Daniel finished that second year feeling more grounded than ever, and couldn’t resist the urge to sign up for a third round. To date, he has lost almost 35 pounds.

Daniel preps for a workout several months into his PN journey.

The strategy that Daniel has embraced, with much success: playing the long game.

Just like marathon training, sustainable eating and fitness habits that make sense for complicated health and life circumstances often require time and repetition to take hold.

“It takes a while for someone to get into the state they’re in, so it’s going to take them a while to get out of it,” Daniel says.  “It’s not going to happen overnight.”

Now, even when life throws its characteristic challenges at Daniel — these days, it’s usually in the form of a busy schedule or having to travel for work — he knows he can rely on his newly ingrained healthy habits.

“At the very least, I know I can always practice eating slowly and eating to 80 percent full. And I can usually fit in some quick body weight exercises. Those familiar practices keeps me on track even when life gets crazy.”

Another advantage of the long game: You have the resilience to understand that your health and weight can absorb life’s inevitable nutrition and fitness “missteps.”

“Be patient,” Daniel urges. “Be patient with the process and be patient with yourself. You take it day by day. It’s these small, incremental changes that get you to your goal.”

“Sometimes you’ll eat or drink too much. Instead of being really hard on yourself, you can just say, ‘You know what? Life happens. Tomorrow is a new day.’”

More importantly, Daniel knows that his new long-term habits make him a better role model for his son.

At the outset of that first year of PN Coaching, as he dreamed of somehow getting back to being the healthy guy he’d once been, Daniel envisioned taking up martial arts… to keep up with his young son, who’s been a karate enthusiast since he was 4 years old.

The moment Daniel realized he finally had enough confidence to start taking Brazilian jiu-jitsu, he know he’d “made it.”

Daniel after a jiu jitsu spar with his young son.

 

“Now when my son sees me doing martial arts, he wants to do it more too. I’m proud of that.”

Daniel’s son is most excited about finding a worthy sparring opponent.

Daniel laughs, “He’s small, but I’m his kicking bag. He thinks I’m indestructible.”

Early in their marriage, Dan Hibbert’s wife, Susan, inspired him to take better care of himself and prioritize health and fitness. Later, after tragedy struck, Dan had to get through his grief and find the strength to stay the course for the most important reason of all: his kids.

++++

One day, in the late 1990s, Dan Hibbert’s wife, Susan, took him aside.

Dan had been overeating, turning to food for comfort during times of stress, and he was negIecting his health. Worried for his well-being, Susan encouraged him to make some changes.

“I was probably 40 or 50 pounds overweight at that point,” Dan, of Calgary, Canada, remembers.

“My wife, bless her heart, sat me down and said, ‘I’m concerned about you and I want you to be healthy.’ And that was great. It gave me a great kick in the backside, and I did get rid of all that weight, and maintained the weight loss for quite some time.”

Dan and his family before his wife, Susan, got sick.

Then, in 2011, something terrible happened.

Susan was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. After multiple surgeries and extensive chemotherapy, she entered a major depression due to sleep problems and anxiety.

Despite everyone’s best efforts, in August of 2012 Susan took her own life. It was unexpected and traumatic for Dan and their five children.

After losing Susan, 40-year-old Dan knew it was going to be challenging not only to work through his own grief, but also to take care of their five kids, dog, and the family business. But he made a decision.

“The minute I knew that the suicide had happened in our family, I felt it was my mission in life to take care of our kids.”

“I didn’t want this to define them in a negative way. I had to be there for them,” Dan says.

Dan did what he needed to do to help himself and the family cope. One of his best outlets was exercise, particularly CrossFit.

But after a couple years, Dan’s old patterns of emotional eating returned.

Once again, Dan turned to food for comfort.

He found himself reaching for a beer or glass of wine each night. And social situations became excuses to overeat. After a while, he could feel his weight creeping up.

“When you have to track off to buy new jeans, it’s like, ‘Okay. Problem,’” he laughs.

Joking aside, Dan took his weight gain seriously. He knew the importance of taking care of his own mental and physical health.

When Dan saw the scale moving into the 220s, he had a “moment of truth.”

Dan thought about his kids and his personal mission to support them. “I thought, ‘If I keep going down this road, I’m not going to be a good dad.’”

And he thought about Susan. “If she would have been here, she would have intervened,” says Dan.

“But, she wasn’t. So it was one of these moments where it’s like, ‘Well, I gotta step up and do this on my own, I guess. For my kids. And for myself, too.’”

Dan’s late wife, Susan, continues to inspire his efforts to stay healthy and fit, for himself and especially for their five kids.

Dan considered his options. He could do a six-week transformation challenge of some kind, but then the results wouldn’t last. Besides, he knew he needed some support and accountability.

He’d been following Dr. John Berardi and Precision Nutrition for some time, so he took the plunge and signed up for Precision Nutrition Coaching.

With PN, Dan was able to reset his old patterns of comfort eating, and practice new, healthier strategies.

“The program vastly expanded my toolkit of knowing what to do, and the practical ability to do it,” he explains.

Dan was committed and consistent with the program from the get-go. He found the daily check-ins and the ability to track his progress immensely helpful.

“If there’s numbers, I do well,” Dan says. “Give me a set of numbers and tell me to get from A to B, and I’m going to work hard to do it.”

And that’s exactly what he did.

Of course, we all need a little extra support sometimes, and Dan was no exception.

After a few months of steady weight loss, he found himself at a plateau, and reached out to his PN coach, Calvin, who provided some simple “suggestions and tweaks” to help Dan keep moving forward.

Then, toward the end of the PN Coaching program, Dan broke his wrist during a CrossFit class. Despite this extra challenge, Dan managed to stay consistent with his habits.

Once again, the combination of daily accountability, support from Coach Calvin, and the ability to track his progress helped Dan stay the course.

The results of that commitment? Dan lost 30 pounds, and gained lifestyle strategies to keep himself healthy and fit — inside and out.

“I appreciate the change the program made for me in appearance, and more importantly, my overall mindset.”

When Dan looks back, he’s glad he course-corrected in order to stay true to his mission of taking care of his kids.

“You do need to stop and take inventory once in a while,” he reflects. “Have those conversations with yourself about the general trends of things in your life.

“Whether it be weight, or mental health, or your habits… take some time to confront those things, and search for help with them.”

He adds, “and if there is coaching help available, make use of it. Coaching is such an asset.”

Today, Dan’s kids are all thriving, and he even has a new member of the family: his first grandchild.

All thriving, Dan and his kids goofed off during a family photo shoot recently.

Of course, coaching can’t magically eradicate grief. Change takes time, and so does healing.

“I’ve learned there are certain things that you have to allow time to get through, and you can’t exactly hurry them up,” Dan acknowledges. “But, with that said, there are things that you can do that will help.”

“The main thing to remember,” says Dan, “it’s that it’s a marathon, not a sprint.”

Growing up with a bone disease, Sheila Brooks came to define herself by her disability. Exercise? She couldn’t. Become an athlete? No way. By the time she was an adult, that self-story had solidified; she was downright petrified of the gym. But now she’s finally busted that mental wall — and lost 52 pounds (and counting).

++++

“In the beginning, I was terrified.”

Only a few months ago, the very notion of walking into a gym was enough to make Sheila Brooks want to turn and run.

For Sheila, 49, of Edmonds, Washington, the gym was more than intimidating; it felt flat-out impenetrable. She never thought she’d be comfortable enough to walk through the door, let alone exercise there daily.

“I have a free membership through my work at a gym that’s two miles away, so I really didn’t have any excuse not to go, other than fear,” Sheila says.

“I was really uncomfortable with the idea of working out in front of other people. I thought, ‘I’m awkward’ and ‘I’m weird looking.’ These were the kinds of things that went through my head, and it was enough to keep me out of the gym.”

Sheila’s fear stemmed from a deeply rooted belief that she was not an athletic or physically capable person — and never would be. That’s because Sheila was born with a bone disease. Her disability, and her beliefs about it, held her back from participating in physical activity.

“It keeps me from doing any sort of high-impact stuff. Growing up, I wasn’t athletic at all,” she reflects. “I couldn’t participate in any sort of sports, and exercise itself wasn’t a part of my life.”

As a result, Sheila believed she was not strong, and her body simply wasn’t cut out for exercise. So she avoided it.

Sheila was overweight, unhappy, unhealthy, and generally feeling stuck.

A rare photo of Sheila, pre-transformation. “I have done a thorough job of hiding from the camera all these years,” she says.

Over the years, Sheila’s inner story about what she couldn’t do became more than a story about athleticism. It became an identity that held her back from experiencing everything that life has to offer.

“I was so miserable. I was very overweight and very depressed and sad about life in general. I’d shut myself away. I thought I couldn’t do anything and I hated the way I looked, so I just said no to everything. Finally, I knew something had to change.”

So Sheila took a leap of faith and signed up for Precision Nutrition Coaching, making a conscious effort to trust the program.

“I put my faith in the PN program. I didn’t have any faith in myself. So I figured, why not put my faith in something else?”

In just a few months with Precision Nutrition, Sheila learned a lot, including her “why” behind her goals, and practical nutrition basics like meal prep and portion control. Plus, she was doing her workouts regularly… from the safety and comfort of her own home.

But the gym still felt like a “big monster” that she was tired of hiding from.

Sheila decided it was time to face her fear.

She reached out to her coach for support. Coach Lisanne’s suggestion: Rather than jumping in with both feet, why not start small?

“My coach suggested I pick one exercise in my workout plan that I felt comfortable doing. For me, that was the sumo deadlift. She said, ‘Okay, go in and just do that one exercise and then leave. Don’t do the whole workout, just do one exercise and leave’.”

Sheila gathered her nerve, walked into the gym, and did 10 reps of a sumo deadlift.

“I was terrified and felt weird,” she acknowledges, “but I went in and did 10 deadlifts and that was it and then I left. It all started from there.”

Sheila looking more and more confident during workouts.

That simple act turned out to be the catalyst for massive change.

After that, Sheila had a bit more confidence, so she scheduled a session with a trainer at the gym to show her around. Next time she came in, she was able to do her full PN workout.

Was she still nervous and uncomfortable? Yep. But she did it anyway.

And she knew that Coach Lisanne was cheering her on.

After facing her fears of the gym, Sheila not only shed pounds, she started shedding that old story about herself.

Sheila made a commitment to herself to show up in the gym every single day, and she kept it. At the same time, she maintained her daily PN lessons and habits, and reached out to Coach Lisanne whenever she needed a little extra support.

Sheila’s consistency paid off, and she saw results in her body: Only six months into the program, she’d already lost 55 pounds, and was looking better in her clothes.

Meanwhile, Sheila began to realize that something subtle but significant was happening.

Her old beliefs about herself — about being incapable, unathletic, or weak — were being replaced with something much more powerful.

“I began to realize that a lot of those mental scripts that I’d told myself in the past are not true.”

“For example, I’ve discovered that I’m really strong. Because of my disability, I can’t jump and I can’t run — but I’m strong. I’m sort of amazed at the weights that I can lift. Now, I’m looking into competitive powerlifting and I would have never, ever thought that that would be possible.”

She adds, “It’s like I’ve discovered that my body’s made for something, and I’m good at it.”

Discovering her strength has opened up a whole new world of possibility for Sheila, whether it’s daily life, or big adventures.

“There are little things I can do, like carrying grocery bags, that are much easier nowadays. This summer I got into hiking. I live in the Northwest and hiking is a huge thing around here. It’s actually a fun thing to do now.”

In a bold move, Sheila even took a Brazilian jiu jitsu class. “I went because I wanted to see what it was like. I’m not as scared to try new things anymore.”

She’s even planning a countryside hike through France — an incredible vacation for someone who used to struggle to walk more than a mile.

To date, Sheila is down 52 pounds from her highest weight. (In the past few months, she has gained three more pound of muscle, and she continues to lose inches.)

Post-transformation, Sheila no longer defines herself my what she can’t do.

“My time with PN has been about redefining myself,” says Sheila. “I have a physical disability, yes, but I now realize that, for years, I’d been limiting myself.

“Nowadays, I realize that I’m capable of lifting heavy weights and stuff, but it’s more than that… I’m not going to define myself by what I can’t do. I don’t have to limit myself anymore.”

At last, for Sheila, the possibilities really are endless.
