Name: Kim Ball
Age: 29

I was a high-level gymnast for 15 years, and now I’m a personal trainer / fitness professional. So, of course, fitness is important to me, working out is a big part of my life, and I’ve spent a good deal of time learning and studying effective fat loss techniques. But, when I decided to do my very first figure competition, I could only get myself so far.

I found Erik and was immediately impressed by his scientific-based knowledge. I could completely understand the reasons for his training and nutritional strategies – and I was grateful to find someone who didn’t employ the same old, prehistoric, unnecessary fat loss techniques for figure/bodybuilding competitors (and fat loss in general). I was also very impressed by his arsenal of transformations on the Lean Bodies Consulting website. It was obvious that this guy knew what he was doing.

I needed someone to take me to the next level – to be involved with every detail of my diet and training program – and I decided that Erik would be perfect as that person. And he was. He told me what to do and when to do it. He answered all my endless questions. He made sure that I maintained a healthy attitude about dieting. He gave me honest, positive feedback about my progress and my potential. He called and texted me constantly throughout my contest day, to make sure my first time on stage went smoothly. And over the three months of dieting, as calories were taken away through the weeks of contest prep, his method of only removing a small bit from each meal was brilliant. I hardly noticed that I was eating less food!

It was very easy to simply eat my meals and do my workouts. As long as I just followed my plan and did what Erik suggested, I progressed forward. And since I was investing my money into his help, I made sure to follow my plan. And, boy, did it lead to an incredible transformation! I constantly increased my strength, put on lean muscle (even while in caloric deficit), and reached a level of leanness that still takes my breath away.

I may have already been healthy, fit, and lean. And my transformation may not have been as dramatic as other clients – but to me, it was a huge change and a huge accomplishment. And I have to thank Erik for giving me all of the tools in which to get there. As well as the endless support and communication.

I wouldn’t have been able to make it to the stage without Erik’s help!
