Metabolism and Food Issues
Look your best, feel empowered, and unleash your full potential while keeping your mental and physical health in tact with our 1:1 Coaching Program!
In 2013, I began my coaching business with a mission!
I wanted to help women in their metabolic recovery and self-discovery.
I wanted to train women like athletes and teach them how to put the passion back into lifting again.
I wanted to work with competitors that were insistent that a trophy was not worth destroying their mental or physical health.
I wanted to teach women that they are empowered to leave the sub 'culture' mindset behind for real life.
I wanted to be a part of change.
At times it has been a lonely journey and other times it has been so incredibly satisfying.
I have endured the fads and circle jerk of science being butchered for insanity.
I have inquiries in my inbox of women taking tic, tac, toe for breakfast with nowhere to go.
I have had competitors leave, only to return when the secret sauce is a massive rebound and a screwed-up relationship with food.
I have had many reasons to want to quit and turn my back on these core values and my mission statement.
Trust me, at times it is tempting. But I won't.
I refuse to sell out on my clients or myself to keep others comfortable.
I have had twenty years of Real-world experience that cannot be taught in a text book or a few contest preps.
I have watched women that once loved the gym never enter it again in fear of judgement that their bodies are not “show ready”.
I have had many conversations with fellow competitors that continue to battle their relationship with food.
For me this is not about macros, competing, and booty building--- although it may appear that way at times.
Sometimes it is not sensational or a big transformation for everyone to see.
It is my passion, my real, and my lane.
It is the moment a client finally goes out on date night without fearing food.
It is the Mom that finally puts her bathing suit on at the pool.
It is the client that is no longer quantifying every bite she eats or step she takes.
It is the clean bill of health.
It is the competitor that says, "Please help! I need a better way!"
That is and always will be, the way I coach.

Imagine yourself in 1 year time.... where do you want to be?
Although we will discuss short term goal setting with our clients, we always keep in mind the long term game and provide our clients a long term game plan. This is incredibly important when coaching fat loss and competition prep clients since there must be a strategy applied for optimal health, metabolism, and mindset patterns for success!
When you consult with us we will discuss both a short and long term goal.... during that process we will be HONEST and TO THE POINT on how we can or can not help you obtain your specific goals in the time frame you are envisioning.
We use a flexible nutrition model with our clients which means that we do not prescribe to ONE model of nutrition. In general our clients follow a flexible dieting model or macro tracking but our goal over time is to shift our long term clients into a pattern of intuitive eating and self sufficiency.
Pending the feedback that you provide us during our coaching check ins we will work with you on choosing the optimal foods for your body, what foods to avoid, and a supplement program to compliment your health and goals with on going updates.
Sorry, we do not prescribe strict meal plans but will provide structure and a nutritional template while assisting you in meal planning while keeping you in the drivers seat.
We want our clients to fall in love with their TRAINING AND NUTRITION because if they like what they do, they will keep doing it!
Which means that we do not have a 'one size fits all' model for programming.
While we used to offer group based programs we pride ourselves on our 1:1 coaching and training programs that work with YOU as an individual.
We take our clients metabolisms and hormones seriously! LIKE REALLY SERIOUSLY.
When you work with The MET Academy you will be working with a coaching team that has an expertise in metabolism and hormonal pathways which means less dietary rebounds and more sustainability.
Expect HONEST feedback and instruction based upon the premise that we are always seeking health and metabolism at the forefront.
Not only will you be connected with a community of coaches that will be there to support you every step of the way; you will also be invited to connect with other like minded women in an online group setting for support, education, and a sense of community!
We will provide you with all of the tools that you need to be successful but YOU hold the key to accountability.
Sorry, we are not the food police or a training babysitting service so expect to be held accountable for your own execution of 'checking in' but expect US to take your feedback and deliver the plan that is attainable while matching your goals.
In other words, you must complete the check ins and communicate with us, we won't chase you down!
A large population of women are stuck on the continual start and stop loop due to their mindset towards transformation, metabolism, nutrition, and training.
Their mindset is generally not their fault though.
By the time they come to us they have had a lifetime of patterns and myths surrounding their choices that it is nearly impossible to make change without the help from an expert to educate them and help them reroute negative loop patterns.
Which is why hiring a coach can be a huge benefit!
We spend an incredible amount of time educating our clients on the science of metabolism, fat loss, training, and nutrition so that they can feel empowered with their choices and understand the patterns that are getting in their way.
We discuss in depth mindset because it determines behaviour.
We strongly believe that with education, knowledge, and trust within the coaching relationship that we can re train a clients ideals and habits to cultivate long term change
Anyone can give someone an 8 x 11 and create a physique change but in order to sustain long term goals we need to understand ourselves, our habits, and mindset for life long change.
We take our own education seriously but we also take your education as a serious aspect of our roles as coaches. Every week we update our private community with behind the scenes educational videos on topics such as fat loss, metabolism, hormones, mindset, training, nutrition, and more.
