Coaching Starter Tasks

Thanks for purchasing my coaching services, can’t wait for us to begin and start making progress. Please have a read over the below while I look over your fitness questionnaire and begin to set up your fitness plan and coaching area.

Download MyfitnessPal (free version)

  • There is an App for Apple and Androids (the app is better as you can scan food barcodes)
  • Begin tracking your current calories (food and drinks) just so I know your current calories (do not change your eating habits).
  • How to use myfitnesspal
  • Please complete this step, as I will email and request this information because it is the foundation. Do NOT use a online calculator

Download the Dropbox App (free)

  • There is an App for Apple and Androids or a website is you prefer to use a computer.
  • This is what we will use for weekly check-ins via a spreadsheet to monitor progress also with where you will upload your progress photos

Take your Starter photos

  • Select a decent spot in your house or garden with good lighting
  • Then take your full body photos in the morning (flexed AND relaxed)
    • Relaxed: Front, Side and Back (include legs)
    • Flexed: Double Bicep Front and Double Bicep pose from the Back
(please have your camera positioned at around chest level and use the timer – no selfies)

Example Posing Guideline

What else will you need?

  • A digital scale to track your body weight – Try this one
  • A digital food scale to track your some of your portions – Try this one

Other recommendations

  • If possible, if you don’t already own one, I would invest in a FitBit or some form of wrist step tracker.
    It doesn’t need to be an expensive one, be just need one that tracks you daily steps.
  • If you struggle with sleep, I any a good few clients have found success using CBD – I use this one
  • Protein or any supplements – Myprotein is the brand I use, I’d recommend the Vimto Clear Flavour
