I’ve been lifting weights for more than 20 years now and eating for far longer. I’ve tried countless diets, training systems and spent tens of thousands on supplements and training gimmicks. I’ve had mixed results with too many combinations to know what worked, or as in most cases what did not…
I’ve trained in many different gyms over the years so had heard of Karen and her own results as a bodybuilding competitor. Rumour was “she trains like a beast and knows her stuff”
I originally went to see Karen about my training and asked for a plan to help me build muscle and size. I was expecting to receive info on what the best exercises to perform and how many reps. I was pleased to see it was similar to what I had already found works for me.
So why am I not in the shape I want to be lifting the weights I want to lift I asked myself. Karen then presented me with a diet plan. A plan that used mostly the foods I already ate but in the quantities that would assist me best with my goals.
I followed it for 9 months and put on almost 15kg’s hitting my strength goals.
Then completely sold on the effectiveness of Karen’s coaching and knowledge I thought I’d ask to drop down to 12% body fat while keeping the muscle I had worked hard to grow.
8 months later I achieved that goal as well.
My new goal is to be heavier, stronger and in better condition than ever before with 12-15% body fat. Guess who is coaching me through it?!
Karen’s approach is direct and practical. She doesn’t coach anything she hasn’t already been through and succeeded with herself. She both talks the talk and eats her own cooking so if your looking for a consultant who knows their stuff and is going to give you an awesome return on your investment then you know who to call.
