If You Want to Get Unstuck, Do This …

The program hopper stopper.

Ever feel like your fitness journey is like sitting in traffic?

Start and stop. Start and stop.

You feel like you’ve been on the road since forever but you haven’t really gotten anywhere.

It’s like the opening scene in Office Space …

You try something new (switch lanes) because you see some progress (traffic moving) over there but once you move into that lane, it comes to a standstill once again.

Frustrating AF.

I used to be the king of program hopping.

I would change lanes so fast and it felt like an epic race to nowhere.

Not just with my nutrition, but with training, too.

If the key to progress was jumping from program to program every 3 weeks, I would’ve been a beast in no time lol.

Unfortunately, there’s this stupid thing called consistency.

It always ruins all the fun.

Anyway, the worst part about sitting in traffic for so long and switching lanes every 30 seconds is that you start to feel helpless.

You start to blame yourself.

Like maybe I caused this traffic.

Maybe I’m just a terrible driver.

Because it seems like other cars on the road are moving but here I am …

Starting and stopping and starting and stopping.

What the hell is wrong with me?!

I can’t tell you how many times I uttered those words to myself while looking in the mirror.

Why can’t I be successful??

Will anything ever work for me??

I truly wasn’t sure.

The good thing about me (well, in this context good, in others, not so much) is that I’m incredibly stubborn.

So I was determined to figure it out.

I landed on the conclusion that I was fundamentally flawed in some way that I can’t stick with any single program.

And I wasn’t that far off.

Ever heard of nutrition for your neurotype?

The lightbulb moment was when I finally decided to stop paying for bullshit programs and made the investment in a real coach.

Then I heard the words that forever changed the way I approached my training and nutrition.

“You’ve been fighting against your nature all along. We need to work with it.”

He went on to explain that my personality type is one that craves variety.

That actually thrives with variety.

But randomly jumping from program to program will prevent me from progressing.

We needed a plan that catered to my need for variety but was also logical in the progression model.

The results?

I made more progress in the next 12 weeks than I had in the previous 12 years combined.

That’s not an exaggeration.

My body fuckin loved working with my Neurotype.

Coach Thibs sent me on the path to freedom and I would never look at training and nutrition the same.

Our 1:1 coaching program teaches training and nutrition for your neurotype.

At first, I thought it couldn’t be that simple.

And then I started applying it to others.

First, with training.

Then, with nutrition.

And over the years, I’ve gone even deeper in the lifestyle, communication, motivation, mindfulness, stress management, and habit based methods that align with each Neurotype.

It’s the cornerstone of what we do.

It’s the reason why our clients get such amazing results.

It’s now something that I teach other coaches.

It’s everything I needed when I was stuck in that decade-long traffic jam.

And it’s the backbone of the 6 week challenges that we run (the next one is coming soon!).

So, if you’ve been starting and stopping for too long and feel like you’ve been driving for a hot minute without much to show for it …

It’s probably not that you’re a terrible driver.

It’s probably not that you’re fundamentally flawed.

It’s probably not that nothing works for you.

The simple truth is that you’ve likely been working against your nature instead of with it. It’s time to put training and nutrition for your neurotype into action.

That one change will unlock the results you’ve been craving.

Can You Out Train a Bad Diet?

You actually can out train a bad diet. Remember the show Hard Knocks? It's basically an inside look at one NFL team during training camp and preseason. Mel and I watched this past season with the Lions and it's still highly entertaining. Here's how one athlete out...
