I contacted LBC the fall of 2013 and I consider it one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was seeking a coach after losing 50 lbs on my own and wanted to find someone that could take me to the next level in terms of my goals of getting on stage. I have always been athletic and played sports throughout high school and college including becoming an active bodybuilder. Like so many others in those days I did not eat enough for my goals and was frustrated after four years of training. After I graduated college and moved on in life, weights became less important than my career. I always dreamed of competing even while I played rugby and beach volleyball for many years.
When I gained weight in middle age, I searched online and read everything I could find on working out and eating nutritiously. I hit the gym and like a fool, I did a lots of cardio. I was able to lose some weight but found that I couldn’t grow muscle, much like when I was in college – I was training a lot but not eating for my goals to grow muscle. It was then that a local trainer at my gym mentioned that she was impressed with LBC and that I should check them out. After researching some other on line coaches I went to the LBC page and read the blogs and right away knew this was the place for me. I quickly contacted Erik and got on the wait list. It took several months but I finally was matched with Coach Megan and was ecstatic to work with her. And so began my transformation.
Megan took the time to explain why building was important and why I should not compete until I had built some quality muscle. At first I was a bit disappointed but put my faith in her and LBC to guide me. That was one of the most important things that I learned, trust your coach and trust the process. Within a few months, the weight began to increase and my body began to change. The bi-weekly photos and measurements proved that I was changing for the better and I was ready to continue building until she felt I was ready for the stage. When I was ready to diet down I saw a brand-new person underneath. Over the years, I have gone through several building and diet phases and each time I have learned more about myself and what my bosy id capable of. I also have a better relationship with food and know that this is a lifestyle that can be maintained for the rest of my life.
Coach Megan is someone who I wholeheartedly trust and would recommend to anyone looking for a coach. Coach Megan and the LBC family are always expanding their own knowledge to give clients the best information. There is no sugar coating or trying to upsell you on a product they endorse. In fact, they provide links and facts to help you save money on useless supplements. I you truly want to make a change in your life and learn how to have a better relationship with food so that you can live a healthy lifestyle, I highly recommend Lean Bodies Consulting. The entire LBC team is at your disposable and you will feel like family with them as they always have your best interest at heart.
I move on with all that I have learned to continue my quest on becoming a better version of myself as I age gracefully. Thank Megan and to LBC for everything you have taught me. I wouldn’t be the new me without you!
