John Berardi - Coaching Program

By: John Berardi  09-12-2011

Do you want to make a significant change in one of the following:

  • How your body looks?
  • How your body feels?
  • How your body performs athletically or in daily life?

If so, our Coaching Program can make it happen.

John Berardi and the experts here have developed a system to cut through all the confusing health, performance, and body composition information out there and provide you with a program that guarantees success. for our Coaching Program and learn why , , , and all over the world are raving about this program.

The Difference:

  1. Integration: Optimal programs achieve the integration of training, nutrition and supplementation. When one of these variables is altered, the other variables must accomodate this change. By building these three variables into your program at the same time, we eliminate any weak links in the chain of success. What you end up with is a holistic approach to physical change.
  2. Individualization: Each program is custom-designed and individually tailored to your needs. Generic programs yield generic and unimpressive results; properly individualized programs yield extraordinary and astounding results. Attendees of JB's seminars world-wide have seen case study data and have been amazed with what we can accomplish without drugs or stimulants.
  3. Support: Joining our team means focussed support for the duration of our relationship. We use systematic, scientific, objective assessment tools to monitor your progress and ensure your success. These tools allow us to custom design your programs based on your body and your challenges.
  4. Education: Not only do we tell you what to do, eventually, we tell you why. Some clients stay with us for years because they enjoy leaving their programs up to the experts. Yet others want to learn to do it themselves. To assist these clients, we provide educational materials designed to help maintain the eating and training habits we've helped them establish.

"Do you design single, one-off programs?"

We don't believe in one-off programs for one simple reason: they don't deliver the results our clients deserve. First, we usually need a month or two to master our client's unique physiology. This includes resetting sluggish metabolic rates or balancing out postural problems. Without fixing these problems, results are suboptimal. Second, as the body changes, the program must change. If we can't monitor these changes and adjust the program, our original design becomes obsolete.

"Do you have special programs for different goals?"

Of course! In fact, we have 4 different options:

1. Body Transformation for Women
We've worked with women from all walks of life achieve their goals, from moms dropping 50 pounds to models shaping up for a photo shoot. No matter what you're looking to do, chances are we've helped someone do it before -- and we can help you do it too.

2. Body Transformation for Men
For guys who want to get lean, put on muscle, or both. We've literally written the book on body transformation for men, and we'll get you in shape faster than you ever thought possible.

3. Sport Performance Coaching
For athletes pursuing sport-specific goals. We've worked with athletes in nearly every sport and at every level, from recreational league athletes to Olympic gold medalists.

4. Custom Coaching
For anyone with special requirements and goals.

"Why do you require a 4-month minimum commitment?"

We use this time frame because we’ve found it takes about 4 months for clients to realize measurable and substantial progress towards their goal(s). The 4-month timeframe allows clients to make dramatic, sustainable progress without jeopardizing their health or using techniques too extreme to consistently follow for a lifetime.

Our first priority is to build successful long-term relationships with our clients. In fact, virtually all of our clients remain with us for longer than the minimum term of 4 months.

"Does web-based coaching work?"

Most of our clients have come to us after long, unsuccessful relationships with personal trainers or coaches, and in a short time with us have seen results that their trainers simply could not produce. Some points to consider:

1. You will have access to world-class expertise in the field of human performance and nutrition in John Berardi and his team. Access to expertise of this caliber in your geographical region is probably limited at best.

2. Our coaching program is highly personalized. Because we work from a distance, we can't just go on "instinct" like many local coaches do. We make you collect objective data, including regular body composition testing, extensive feedback questionnaires and web-based tools to get an exact picture of how you're doing and how your body works. We'll get to know you very well -- even if you're halfway around the world from us.

"Do you provide references from existing or former clients?"

"What are my responsibilities as a client?"

We have five simple rules for our clients.

1. Do what we tell you to do.
To be a client, you have to trust us, accept that we're the experts here, and do exactly what we tell you to do. We've successfully helped hundreds if not thousands of people just like you. If you're not willing to put us in control, becoming a client will be a frustrating experience and a waste of time for both sides.

2. Work hard.
Nothing worth achieving is easy, and we don't make any apologies here: we're going to make you work hard. If you do, you'll be stunned at how fast you'll see results. If we think you're slacking off, on the other hand, we'll drop you.

3. Give us at least four months to work with you.
Anything less is too little to establish a good relationship and see tangible results.

4. Fill out our feedback questionnaire every two weeks.
Every two weeks, you will have to do body composition testing, which takes about 30 minutes, and fill out our feedback questionnaire, which takes another 30 minutes. This is absolutely critical to your success.

5. Send us photos every month.
To keep you honest and motivated, every month you will have to email us digital photos of yourself documenting your progress. Doing so is easy and we'll help you get started if you've never done it before.

Bottom Line: If you do those things, we will do everything in our power to ensure that you succeed. Clients who follow those five rules have extraordinary success rates. Before you begin, you'll have to sign a commitment sheet to prove to us that you understand each rule and that you'll uphold that commitment.

If you don't, you won't last long. None of these rules are optional. We only work with committed people, and those who fail to meet these standards are dropped from the program immediately. These are very reasonable requests, and essential if you want great results. If you can't follow our five basic rules, please do not apply.

"What do I actually receive as part of this program?"

  1. An initial nutrition, lifestyle, health, body composition, and exercise history assessment.

  2. Body composition and physical alteration appraisals conducted every 2 weeks.
  3. Recovery appraisals conducted every 2 weeks.
  4. An education packet designed to teach you the basics of integrated program design and lifestyle change.
  5. Progress reports detailing where you started and how far you've come.

"What does it cost?"

The coaching program costs $350 USD per month, with a four month minimum.

"How am I billed?"

Your credit card will be billed the day you are accepted to the coaching program and every 30 days thereafter.

"Can I cancel at any time?"

If you quit before your fourth month, we will still bill you for four months of coaching. We want committed clients, it's that simple. If you can't commit to four months, don't bother applying.

After your fourth month, you can cancel at any time. All we ask is that you give 30 days written notice so we have time to end the billing cycle and take care of administrative tasks.

"How do I get started?"

The first step is to apply for admission to the program. We always have more applicants than spots, so you will have to prove to us that you are committed, coachable and willing to work hard. We'll let you know what the current wait times once we've received and evaluated your application.
