Nutrition Coaching - Frequently Asked Questions

Our nutrition coaching program opens with limited places once every 3 months. Our next program commences on Monday 23rd January, 2017. If you're interested, please sign up asap to avoid disappointment.  


Here we answer the most frequently asked questions about the program to help you decide whether or not it’s right for you.


Q: What is The Perth Pilates Studio's Nutrition Coaching Program?

A: The Perth Pilates Studio's Nutrition Coaching Program is a 12-month online nutrition coaching program offered in conjunction with Precision Nutrition, one of the world's leading nutrition companies. After 20 years in the fitness industry, we’ve seen dozens of diet and exercise fads come and go. That’s why we don’t follow fads. Instead, we lead you along a scientifically formulated path using continuously tested and updated methods. 


The Precision Nutrition approach specialises in taking complex nutritional problems and breaking them down into small, strategic daily practices—small practices that are designed to fit into a busy lifestyle while also delivering significant results.  


Our Nutrition Coaching Program includes:


  • A structured year-long nutrition program to help keep you consistent.
  • An expert coach from our studio to give you feedback, make adjustments to your program, and help keep you accountable.
  • Strategic daily nutrition practices that fit into your lifestyle.

Everything (from your nutrition habits and coach's feedback to your accountability tracking) is delivered on our custom coaching platform. It works on any computer, tablet, or mobile device and can be accessed from anywhere in the world.

 
 
Q: Who is The Perth Pilates Studio Nutrition Coaching Program for?

A: Our program is for men and women with busy lives who want personal accountability, a structured nutrition program to follow, and a coach to help keep them consistent and on-track.


The main focus of the program is to strategically help you improve your eating and exercise habits—all within the context of your day-to-day life. We don’t give you a crazy diet or exercise program to follow. Instead, we help our clients build the habits they need to get results that last for the rest of their lives.


Q: Who is the The Perth Pilates Studio Nutrition Coaching Program NOT for?

A: Our program is not for figure or fitness models, professional bodybuilders, or high level athletes training for a particular sport.

It’s also not for people who already have all the accountability they need.


If you rarely struggle with staying consistent with your exercise or eating habits, then we’re not a good choice for you.


Q: Will the program work for me?

A: If you follow our recommendations and stick with us for the full year then yes, you will get results but you have to commit to making small strategic changes in your life.


That’s something no one ever likes to admit about getting in better shape: it takes hard work, time, and determination. Changing your body isn’t easy, but it is possible.


Want to lose weight? Eat better? Feel less stressed? Get more sleep? The Precision Nutrition program has helped thousands of people do that. And we’re confident we can help you, too.


Once you make the commitment to get in better shape, we’ll be with you every step of the way. When life pushes you around and difficulties come up, we’ll help you push back.


We’ll stack the deck in your favour and give you every advantage we know of. Over the course of 12 months, you’ll learn everything you need to look, feel, and perform at your best. That’s our promise.


Q: Do you give me a meal plan?

A: No, we don’t give out meal plans. Meal plans and diets aren’t really that useful or sustainable. People often feel like they’re either “on” them or “off” them. They feel like they’ve failed and are beyond hope if they’re not eating perfectly at every meal.

Our approach is completely different: We help you build a set of sustainable habits that will serve you for the rest of your life.


This means you get to choose—with the help of your coach—which foods are best for you, when to eat those foods, and how much to eat of them.


Q: Why coaching? Can't I just pick up a diet book? Or read some online articles for free?

A: If you take an honest look at your life—and at the lives of the people you most respect and admire—you’ll notice something interesting.

As human beings, we’re rarely ever transformed by reading books or articles. Or from watching a documentary. Or from taking a class.

Instead, most transformative change happens through a real relationship with another human being—usually a coach or a mentor.


Sure, you can try another diet book or read a few articles, especially if you love thinking about exercise and nutrition. If you get great results with those tools, we applaud you.


However, if you’re having trouble putting what you know into action, The Perth Pilates Studio Nutrition Coaching Program might be for you.


The formula is simple: We deliver coaching, social support, and a process that encourages real change. Not something you can find in a book.


Q: I'm thinking of joining with a friend or partner. Can we it together?

A: Of course. We encourage friends, partners, and family members to join together. That immediate social support makes a real difference for many of our clients. We’ve had fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, sisters and brothers, coworkers, and best friends join together.

Just remember, your program will commence on the first Monday after you sign up and accept your invitation to log into our online portal. If you and a friend or partner want to go through the program together, make sure you sign up in the same week. 


Q: Is this just for young people?

A: Absolutely not. We coach people of all ages.


Q: I read that you require progress photos. Do I have to submit those?


A: Well, technically, we don’t require progress photos. They’re completely optional.

The reason behind requesting progress photos is to visually document the changes you achieve while coaching with us.

(It’s also important for your coach to see what’s happening so they can help give you better advice when required.)


At the end of your coaching experience, if you’re really proud of your transformation and want to be featured to inspire others, we’ll ask for your permission to do so. But, before that, the pictures will be kept totally private at all times.


Remember, we’re here to help people change their bodies and their lives (not to embarrass anyone or make them feel ashamed) so you can opt out of the photo process if you want to.


However, we do really encourage you to stretch yourself, get out of your comfort zone, and give this method a try.


Q: How much does it cost?

A: The Perth Pilates Studio Nutrition Coaching Program costs just $29/ week (billed fortnightly) for 12 months. 


Q: Will I have to spend a lot of money on food and supplements?

A: Most clients actually end up saving money on their grocery bills. This is because they make more informed, careful decisions, eat out less, and spend fewer dollars on processed novelty foods, replacing them with whole, delicious natural foods.


As for supplements, we may recommend a few health-oriented products, based on your unique needs and goals. However, these are completely optional.


Q: I live in X country. Can I still participate?

A: Of course. Our online program is available worldwide. No matter where you live, we can help.

Q: I follow a special diet (plant-based, vegan, Paleo, intermittent fasting). Will you still work with me?

A: Yes, we’d love to work with you. The nutrition habits your coach will guide you through are easily customizable.

All you have to do is let your coach know what your dietary preferences/restrictions are and they’ll help you out.


Q: When does The Perth Pilates Studio Nutrition Coaching Program begin?

A: The next program begins on Monday 23rd January. Please make sure you sign up and accept your email invitation to join the online portal by Sunday, 22nd January at the latest to ensure your program is ready to commence on time.  Check your email inbox after you sign up for this invitation (which will arrive within 24 hours). 

Q: How long does the program run for?

A: The program lasts for 12 months. Based on Precision Nutrition's research, we’ve found a full year to be the most effective time period for building the habits necessary for life-long health and fitness.

Our coaching team is committed to helping you make a life-changing, transformative change. That’s why we have everyone commit to the program for 12 months.


Q: Can I suspend the program if I'm sick or going away? 


Our online platform doesn't allow your program to be suspended due to illness or holidays. Vacations, trips, periods of high work demand etc will come up and one of our goals is to help you maintain healthy eating habits through these periods. 


Just like in life, which also has no pause button, the idea is for clients to figure out how to do their best under all circumstances.
