Hi, I’m Lance! I design exercise programs and provide nutrition coaching for where you are in terms of fitness but also preference. The training relationship is reciprocal; it’s not just me telling you what to do. If you don’t like something, you are very unlikely to adhere to it and make real change. I want your experience to be fun, results-driven, and fit for your (quite possibly hectic) life.
I didn’t grow up playing 5,000 different sports and being constantly active. I had a sedentary lifestyle in general, and I decided to set out to lose weight in college and started running and exploring nutrition. Over the years, the initial weight loss goal turned into a passion for learning about exercise, nutrition, and how our bodies move.
I say all this because every time I started something new I had some anxiety about it, and it was hard. If you are someone who has ever struggled with exercise or eating, I can relate. Am I doing this right? Will my heart explode? Are people looking at me because I don’t know how fill-in-the-blank piece of equipment at a gym works? Will carbs kill us all? Should we just be on the sticks of butter, moose meat and green tea diet?
I set out for answers each time I began something new. I located reputable sources and used my critical thinking skills I promote in my other job as a teacher. If you don’t believe in science and credible organizations and instead prefer Internet hearsay, then I’m probably not the trainer for you.
