It's been almost 2 months since I started with Nathan. I've been on the health and wellness program, which is both nutrition and fitness with a focus on getting over hurdles like emotional eating. Nathan has been awesome! He's so patient with me, motivates me, answers my millions of questions, and takes the time to explain why he's handling the program the way he is. He has taken all of the guess work out of this journey and is setting me up to know how to do this for myself in the future. He's never made me feel out of place, when often that's exactly how I feel when I start a new workout program. I love the app that they utilize because it's all at my fingertips.. what I'm supposed to eat, what my workouts look like, watching my progress, getting a hold of Nathan. I can't say enough good things about him, his knowledge, the program he's created for me.
I've always felt like I "knew" how to eat healthy, but Nathan breaks it down for me. He answers all of my questions, has taken into account things I don't want to eat and the things I do want to eat, and has taught me how to substitute and flexibility in eating right. It was amazing to me how much better I felt just by eating right.. it sounds so obvious. Eat better, feel better. But it was still amazing to me and not having to think.. do I eat this or should I eat that? It's actually become more convenient to eat healthy!
His fitness program has gotten me back into the gym and reminded me of all the things I used to love about it. When I came to Nathan, I was running on high stress and even mentioned I wasn't sure how much time I had to dedicate to fitness but that I would try my best. He was very patient with that and the gym has become my place to get away from all the stress.. he's very motivating and I usually wake up to various messages from him throughout the week motivating me on my workouts. He asked in my intake paperwork about my past fitness history (very little) and what I do and don't feel comfortable with. He's done great at pushing me without making me uncomfortable and I am so grateful for him.
