“I’m sure I’ve tried pretty much every fad diet out there. I had gotten to the point where the only way I could lose weight was to eat under 1200 calories per day… I went to bed hungry every night, and I was pretty resigned to the fact that that was going to be how I had to live if I wanted to get the weight to stay off. Of course, that was killing my CrossFit workouts; and it was impossible to maintain.
I was paired with my coach and immediately I started pushing back on the idea of eating so much. She was exactly what I needed: that confident, calm ‘voice’ to say, I’ve got you. Let ME worry about the scale. You just focus on hitting your macros and see what happens… I would get frustrated when I felt like I was eating well, working out hard, and the scale would go UP, not down. My coach took those opportunities to encourage me and educate me on all the reasons that could be happening. It really was transformational for my thinking. I could go on and on about what I’ve learned!”

“This program is incredible. The changes in how I looked and felt blew my mind and I quickly became addicted to this process. My coach was so supportive of my goals and helping me reach them while juggling my very busy life as a shift worker and mom of two. It has had a huge positive impact on my life in terms of health, food knowledge and getting rid of the negative restrictive “diet” mindset I’d been using unsuccessfully for years. The confidence this program has given me in and outside of the gym has been life-changing.”

“This program was life-altering. My goal was body compositional change to support the goal of competitive CrossFit. I am currently 11 lbs down!
Before WAG, I had come to accept that how I looked, how I felt in my skin and how I performed was just how it is. That I had reached, what was in my mind, the naturally pre-determined and unsatisfying state of ‘as good as it gets.’ This state of mind was really just an acknowledgment of my own powerlessness over my health.
This program offered education in an area where I felt overwhelmed and empowerment where I felt powerless. My coach and WAG’s philosophy gave me a new set of skills. Spending the last 6 months honing those skills with their support has built my confidence and forever changed my perspective on eating for performance, and health in general.”
