I think that anyone who wants to be more comfortable in the gym or needs help getting started with workouts will enjoy this. As someone who has been exercising for years, I did find my program a little boring although it got the job done. There was a big emphasis on hypertrophy and not really anything to do with functionality or athleticism so if you have those goals, you will likely have to supplement. I was surprised to receive a recommended calorie and macros intake without any baseline numbers first but we were able to readjust my nutrition plan as each week went on. Counting macros is definitely not for me as I don't enjoy restricting my diet or stopping to weigh and track every meal but it's definitely a more sustainable diet for anyone looking to lose weight. I have gotten compliments on my physical appearance even in the short time of implementing this program structure but moving forward I will be readjusting my program to help serve me in ways that will be more personally helpful.
Thank you for this detailed review, B.K.!
Here is a reply from the coach, Imee:
Hi, This is Somanytoes here.
I thought I would like to share my point of view and address some of the relevant points Bree bought up in her review:
'a little boring although it got the job done.'
If the outcome goal is to make real gains in the gym (ie getting stronger and/or building more muscle), then boring can be seen as a positive thing!. Keeping to the same exercise for a given period of time allows you to monitor if you are truly progressing (via more reps and/or more weights). There is a time and place for variety and variations, but if making progress in the goals, changing things up week to week is not conducive for that.
'I was surprised to receive a recommended calorie and macros intake without any baseline numbers first but we were able to readjust my nutrition plan as each week went on.'
Starting macros will always be an estimate (though not random; initial macros are based on your stats and lifestyle proved in the initial questionnaire!). Which is why we track data during the coaching process so we can make adjustments based on what happens in the real world.
By monitoring both objective data (eg scale weight), biofeedback (ie energy levels, sleep etc) and your personal weekly feedback/experience, and then using that information to inform any macros/calories adjustments throughout the process, we can keep you progressing in the right direction.
'Counting macros is definitely not for me as I don't enjoy restricting my diet or stopping to weigh and track every meal but it's definitely a more sustainable diet for anyone looking to lose weight.'
Indeed, not everyone is suited or need to tracking macros forever. The objective of asking one to track macros is to gain a better objective and non-judgmental insight into their typical eating patterns and improve nutritional education.
With that knowledge, one can make both quantitative (the amount) and qualitative (the food choices) adjustments to their eating such that they get to move towards the health/fitness outcome one desires.
Thus, the awareness, knowledge and skills developed through tracking+weighing equips you the ability to make mindful/educated food decisions so you feel your best both physically and mentally.
I totally appreciate Bree’s feedback. Your feedback will help me help others more effectively; Taking the time to explain why the program is structured as such at the start of a coach-client relationship, and always keeping open communication can surely help with one’s buy-in and commitment towards the plan that’s tailored to their needs, circumstance and goals.
I truly hope that the amount of time you spent working with me was useful in giving you a good foundation to build upon, both in terms of how you structure your training and nutrition, so you get to where you want to be with your fitness and health!
I’m really enjoying the attention to detail and the level of attention. I’m learning more than I expected. Imee is exceeding my expectations and I’m starting to get results right away. greatly appreciate this opportunity and hopefully it’s mutually helpful.
