INDIVIDUAL COACHING

Never second guess again

Working with a coach is a game changer. If you know deep down that your current plan is not addressing your specific needs, or if you’re tired of second guessing every step, a Functional Bodybuilding Master Coach will get you back on track.

Motivation, accountability, and support from a trusted guide will help you break through plateaus, get the skills and strength you’ve always wanted, come back from injuries or life obstacles, and love your training more than ever before.  More than a personal trainer who clocks out at the end of the session, and more than a nutritionist, Functional Bodybuilding Master Coaches design custom programs for the entire picture of what keeps you fit and healthy.

Imagine opening your workout app and seeing training designed just for you. Crazy work day on Thursdays? Your coach will make it a rest day or give you an active recovery flow. Only have dumbbells and a pull-up bar at home? Your coach will give you movements that work for your exact situation.

Instead of just hoping you’re nailing technique, your coach can watch your training videos and give you feedback, and answering questions along the way. Maybe you love jiu jitsu, or want to do an Iron Man, or an old injury is throwing you for a loop. Your coach will design a program that meets your individual needs, and keep it challenging, fun, and safe. 

Do you wonder if you’re eating the right amount for your needs? Your coach will connect the dots between your training and nutrition, and make sure you’re sleeping well and recovering between sessions too.

CUSTOM TRAINING

Functional Bodybuilding helps athletes of all levels look good and move well in all phases of life. Your coach will begin with a conversation, and get to know what you want to accomplish – and what’s held you back in the past. Get your first strict pull-up – or 30 Muscle Ups for time. Build muscle where you want it – while still having energy for work and kids at the end of the day. 

Custom workouts are created for you every week based on your priorities and what motives you to train, as well as your initial movement assessment. So you’ll stay safe and still make progress – and as your needs change over time, your coach will adjust your plan.

CUSTOM NUTRITION

Want to shed fat and build muscle? How about improve your digestion, ditch sugar cravings, and feel more confident in the kitchen? We don’t believe in a one size fits all approach to nutrition – but we do believe in helping you find out what works best for you. Whether you want to overhaul your eating or slowly make a few tweaks over time, your coach will align your nutrition plan to your training and overall goals, and make sure it feels sustainable and enjoyable. Talk to your coach about accountability in ways that work for you – whether that’s a food log or just a once in awhile check in on how things are going.

STRESS LESS

Training intensity is a form of stress on your body, just like poor nourishment, lack of sleep, and anxiety about that presentation next Thursday. So instead of crushing you with workouts that leave you exhausted or injury-prone, your coach will take your stress profile into account when designing your program, and check in with you frequently to make sure you get the right dose of training. We’ll also work with you on small but mighty habits to release the pressure – from sun, hydration, and sleep to entering “rest and digest” states after training and before eating.

HOW IT WORKS

1. CONSULTATION

After getting matched with a coach, you’ll have a one on one Zoom call and fill out a detailed intake to get to know your background and goals.

2. ASSESSMENT

Your coach will check your mobility and get a baseline on your strength, conditioning, and how you move – accounting for your level and any past injuries. You can upload videos and feedback right to the TrueCoach app for your coach to see. You may also log your eating, sleeping, and stress for a few days depending on your goals.

3. CUSTOM PLAN

Every week you’ll see new workouts that will progress thoughtfully toward your goals. Your coach will check your videos and feedback throughout the week, and you’ll get a 30-minute call with your coach to check in once a month. Nutrition info goes right into the app as well.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY

Your Questions Answered

Do I need to be a competitive athlete?

We work with clients with many different backgrounds and goals. Some want to change their body composition, others want to compete in a local event or in another sport from time to time, and others just want to feel good training and get one freaking pull up (and then another!). No matter what your interests are, your coach will design a plan for you to reach them.

How many workouts will I get per week?

Your training schedule will be co-created by you and your coach according to what works best for you, and your coach will write as many (or as few) workouts as you need. Your schedule may also change over time, and your coach can adjust your plan accordingly.

What kind of nutrition coaching is involved?

Our coaches are all working towards their Precision Nutrition certificates, and have years of experience coaching clients on sustainable ways to eat that will fuel your body with quality foods in the right quantities for you. Because each program is individualized, your coach will discuss nutrition with you and identify your top priorities. For some clients this may be simply drinking enough water and eating more slowly. For others it might be a detailed macronutrient plan. Your coach will provide all the information and accountability you need to form habits that support your needs and give you the confidence to make great nourishment part of your everyday routine.

What if I’m injured?

Whether you have a nagging injury from the past or a new issue pops up, your coach will make sure you are training safely and as pain free as possible. Your coach can program recovery workouts and recommend lifestyle practices that promote healing, and incorporate movements to work around your injuries and strengthen you over time. There is almost always a way to keep moving safely, and your coach will guide you through the process so you won’t have to guess how to modify workouts on your own.

How often will I communicate with my coach?

Your coach will be checking your workout results frequently throughout the week to answer any questions that come up and provide coaching notes if needed. The more information you add to your workouts in the TrueCoach app, the more your coach will be able to give feedback and fine tune your program. If appropriate for you, coaches will also add a weekly check-in to your program to see how your training, nutrition, and lifestyle factors such as stress and sleep are going. Your coach will also have a 30 minute Zoom call with you once per month, which is a great opportunity to dive deeper into program feedback to make sure you are loving your program.

What is the commitment for coaching?

Our coaches are committed to forming deep and lasting relationships with their clients. The minimum commitment to work with a coach is 6 months, though typically clients will stay on much longer, and discounts are available for longer contracts. Your coach is ready to meet your needs both now and as they evolve.

How do I get started?

The first step is to request a free consultation to make sure remote coaching is a good fit – we’ll find out more about your background and interests, get you all the information you need to make a decision, and match you with a caring, supportive coach who will follow up with you to get started should you choose to move forward. Your coach will be ready to meet you, get to know your needs, and design a training and nutrition program just for you.
