Fitness & Nutrition (by Nerd Fitness)

You Don’t Have to do this all alone. There’s another way.

If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed when it came to your health and fitness, you’re not alone.

If you’ve ever felt bad for not having enough motivation to stick with a workout plan, you’re not alone.

If you’ve ever felt like no matter what you do you’ll never lose that weight, you’re not alone.

The truth of the matter is this:

It’s not your fault!

Like Morpheus tells Neo in The Matrix, all of the above “is the wool that has been pulled over your eyes to hide the truth:”

That conventional wisdom DOESN’T WORK.

That endless hours of cardio DOESN’T WORK.

That relying on willpower and motivation DOESN’T WORK.

You see, you’re a special snowflake (your mom was right!) And that means:

The diet plan you pulled off a free website probably won’t work for you in the long run. Whether it’s Paleo, Vegetarian, Keto, Whole 30, Calorie Counting, Atkins, or anything in between, you have to pick the plan that lines up with you.

It means the free YouTube workout video you watched won’t help you reach the exact goals you’ve laid out for yourself. Whether it’s a cardio kickboxing class, an ab-shredder program, or even bodyweight bootcamps, simply doing the workout won’t be enough to make you look like the model in the video.

Here’s why: you don’t have the same body type, hormones, genetics, nutritional opportunities, or lifestyle as everybody else. It’s no surprise then that generic plans or strategies don’t work for your specific situation.

Now, if none of that stuff above works…

What actually DOES work?

In my experience and the success I’ve seen in my 9 years of running Nerd Fitness, you’re significantly more likely to lose weight and keep the weight off IF you have the following:

A nutrition strategy that is built around your lifestyle, relationship with food, and preferences.

A workout plan crafted for your specific goals and how much time you can commit to exercise.

Accountability from an expert who knows you better than you know yourself.

I have found a solution that works myself and the right members of the Nerd Fitness Community (that’s you!), and it’s what I’m so excited to talk to you about below.

You see, for years I’ve been cheating when it comes to getting in shape. I feel like I’ve been playing a video game on God Mode, or with all of the codes enabled.

After years of struggling to get in shape, to convince myself that I just needed to work harder, be smarter, and use more willpower to get myself to actually go to the gym, I made a change that has changed my life.

I hired an online coach.

4+ years later, I can’t imagine not having an online personal trainer help me with my goals, keep me accountable, and I’m so proud that we can finally offer this experience to the general public through Nerd Fitness too.

A personal accountability coach is like having your own Yoda in your pocket (not a euphemism) that is keeping you on the straight and narrow path to becoming a Jedi.

Our clients sign into their Nerd Fitness Coaching app and follow the workout that has been customized for their goals.

They track their food based on the guidance provided by their coach. And they interact with their coach who is checking in on them, rooting for them to succeed, and picking them up when they’re down.

It seems silly, but just knowing that somebody is actively cheering you on can be enough to make habits start to stick. And that doesn’t even factor in that the expert is also crafting a plan and strategy that is unique to your goals and time commitments.

Think of it like a paint-by-number coloring book. You don’t have to learn how to draw, you just need to follow the instructions and you end up with a damn good looking picture!

The same goes for online coaching.

You don’t need to figure out the perfect plan. You just need to follow the instructions that are personalized to you.

Instead of waking up miserable, our clients wake up excited for the day ahead.

Instead of being overwhelmed by all the choices that need to be made, they just follow the plan that is laid out for them.

Instead of getting mad at themselves for not having enough willpower, they have a plan that doesn’t require willpower to stay on track.

Whether you have hundreds of pounds to lose or you’re training to improve at a particular sport or gymnastic move (we have clients in both categories), our personal accountability coaches can create a plan that customized to your life, your body, and your schedule.
