With our next registration approaching, we’re getting lots of great questions about the program. Today we’ll answer the most common ones so you can decide if it’s a good fit for you.
Q: What is Momentum Nutrition Coaching?
A: Momentum Nutrition Coaching is a 12-month program that guides clients through dramatic—yet sustainable—changes in their eating and exercise habits with help from an expert coach.
After 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’ve carved our own path, testing and continuously updating our methods.
We specialize 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. Small practices that are formulated to deliver results like this:
Momentum Nutrition Coaching includes:
- A structured year-long nutrition program to help keep you consistent.
- An expert coach to give you feedback, make adjustments to your program, and help keep you accountable.
- Strategic daily nutrition practices that fit into your lifestyle.
- Guaranteed results. Stick with us for a year, and if you don’t get what you’re looking for, you get a full refund.
- Effective workouts. Customizable programs appropriate for any fitness level or limitations.
Q: How often do you accept new clients?
A: We only open our doors and accept new clients a limited number of times per year—and thousands of people visit our website during those registration periods.That means we only have the capacity to coach less than 1 percent of the people who express interest in working with us.
Because of that, our programs have historically sold out in a matter of hours. That’s why we encourage people who are eager to work with us to put their name on the Momentum Nutrition Coaching presale list.
By adding your name to that list, we’ll give you the opportunity to register 24 hours before everyone else, increasing your chances of getting a spot. Plus, you’ll save 20 percent on the cost of the program. It’s our way of rewarding the people who are most willing to commit, because they’ve always proven to be our best clients.
Q: Who is Momentum Online Coaching for?
A: Momentum Nutrition Coaching is for men and women who want to get in the best shape of their lives—for the rest of their lives. It’s for people with busy schedules 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 forever.
Q: Who is Momentum Nutrition Online NOT for?
A: Momentum Online Coaching 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 Momentum Online Coaching 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?
For 13 years we’ve helped thousands of people do all that and more. 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 favor 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 really guarantee results?
A: Absolutely. We guarantee our work because it’s the right thing to do.
Stick with us for a year and follow our recommendations. If you don’t get what you’re looking for at the end of the year, we’ll give you a full refund.
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 are you offering this type of coaching?
A: Mentors and coaches have made all the difference in our lives. And that’s what the Momentum Nutrition Coaching program is all about.
At Momentum Fitness, most of us feel extremely fortunate to have access to mentors and coaches. People who are a little further along the path than we are. People who can help steer us in the direction we need to go.
That’s why we’ve made it our mission to pay it forward. We’re here to help you make meaningful change in your life.
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 more 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 more articles, especially if you love thinking about exercise and nutrition. If you get great results with those tools, we applaud you.
But if you’re having trouble putting what you know into action, Momentum Nutrition Coaching might be for you.
Q: Do you really hate books and blogs?
A: Believe it or not, we get this question a lot.
And the answer is no: we don’t hate book or blogs. In fact, we love books.
But diet and fitness books rarely help us make dramatic, consistent changes in our lives.
Books typically present too much new information at once. They get you all fired up about a “new” way of doing things… which lasts for a few days. Then you’re back to where you were before.
Of course, while most of us think we need to learn everything at once, research shows the exact opposite: When we want to improve ourselves, the only way to do it is to change one thing at a time.
That’s why coaching (being led and guided by someone a little further along the path than you) and social support (being surrounded and encouraged by like-minded people) are so important.
The formula is simple: We deliver coaching, social support, and a process that encourages real change.
And that’s not something you can find in a book.
Q: I'm a beginner with a lot of weight to lose. Will this work for me?
A: Yes. We’ve worked with lots of people who are new to exercise and healthy eating.
Remember, we were all beginners at some point. And at Precision Nutrition, we do our best to make sure all beginners work at a pace that’s comfortable for them.
Q: I'm NOT a beginner. Will Momentum Coaching work for me?
A: Lots of our clients have 5+ years of experience with consistent training and healthy eating. And they still get great results with us. That’s because the interactions they have with their online coach are tailored to their needs and goals—it’s not a “one size fits all” program.
Oftentimes, people with a lot of experience enjoy handing the reins over to us for a while. We take care of the nutrition and exercise programming so they can focus on improving other parts of their lives.
Q: What if I don't have much weight to lose but just want to eat better?
A: It’s great that you don’t have a lot of weight to lose. It means you’re starting out with a big advantage.
Of course, lifelong fitness and health is more than losing weight. With Momentum Online Coaching you’ll learn how to maintain a lean and healthy body for life. Plus you’ll develop a new, healthier relationship to food and eating. And that’s something fewer than 5 percent of people know how to do.
Q: I'm thinking of joining with a friend or partner. Can we do the program 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 encourange fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, sisters and brothers, coworkers, and best friends to join together.
Q: Is this just for young people?
A: Absolutely not. We’ve coached men and women 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’re making 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.)
Of course, at the end of your coaching experience, if you’re really proud of your transformation and want to be featured as a finalist, 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.
Although we really do encourage you to stretch yourself, get out of your comfort zone, and give this method a try.
Q: Will I have to spend a lot of money on food and supplements?
A: When it comes to food, 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: Will I need to join a gym?
A: Nope, you don’t have to join a gym to be successful with Momentum Nutrition Coaching.
Q: I live in X city. Can I still participate?
A: Absolutely. The coaching is online-based so we can work with clients across the country. You'll have the same access to a coach who will hold you accountable, answer all of your questions and be there to listen and support you through the entire process.
Q: I like to (CrossFit, run, bike, swim, ski, do group exercise classes, walk my dog, etc). Can I still do the stuff I love while getting coaching?
A: Of course. Keep doing what you love.
That’s the whole point of Momentum Online Coaching—to learn how to eat and exercise in a way that’s fun and sustainable. And to do this all while living a fuller life.
Once you get started, you’ll just work with your coach to figure out how to structure things.
Q: I already have a personal trainer. Can I keep that up while getting coaching with Momentum Nutrition?
A: Yes, if you want to continue with both, that’ll work.
In fact, I think with Momentum Online Coaching AND your in-person coach, you’ll be unstoppable.
Once you sign up, just let your coach know that you’re working with a local trainer and the type of training you are doing and we’ll make sure to integrate the two.
Q: I have a few injuries. Can I still join?
We all go through injuries, so I understand where you’re coming from. In fact, improving your nutrition and recovery strategies can help you heal quicker and more completely. Here’s my own personal story with injury.
Q: I follow a special diet (plant-based, vegan, Paleo, intermittent fasting). Will you still work with me?
A: Yep, 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: How long does the program run for?
A: Momentum Nutrition Coaching lasts for 12 months. Based on our continued 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.
