The last "diet" you'll ever need
I will give you the tools and empowerment to get the sustainable long term results you're looking for
I have had a brilliant 3 months! I can actually eat 1,950 calories and not put on weight, and I’m feeling leaner each day which is something I never thought would happen! I always had a fear of deadlifts and this programme explaining the technique and the videos makes it easier, I love doing them… now! My strength over all has grown have reached new PB’s within the last few weeks with 75kg squats, 20kg single arm rows and my hamstrings have grown rapidly, at month 1 I started lying leg curl at 10kg now hitting 30kg which is fantastic for my weak hamstrings!!!!” Read more ““Overall my starting weight was 63kg and now weighing 59.5kg, with waist dropping 4cm and thigh dropping 5cm, thrilled overall and can not wait to continue!!!!”
The Affiliate gives you great insight into food ideas for cooking and gaining knowledge of healthier food choices. Understanding the micros/macros etc. Being able to have any question answered while being able to get views and opinions from all people involved which gives a access to large amount of knowledge. Genius! The monthly change to… program keeps it fresh love it. 👌 Read more “I’m down from 84kg to 81kg and with better shape and feel a lot stronger.”
The Facebook group and the feeling of belonging to such an amazing community, I love logging on to see the interaction. I am forever learning and picking up tips from both of you so thank you!!! You are undercharging and over delivering and it’s so great to see! Having a solid programme to follow, it’s so… easy to do ‘what you fancy’ when you’re tired but having this programme keeps me on track! Mentally I feel like I have much more control of my training and of my food. Although I don’t really track macros, I feel like I have better control over my health and I’m more aware of my food choices. I have been really focusing on health instead of just fat loss and I feel more confident in my own skin because of that. The quality of the information given by Larry and Kate can’t be beaten! I have definitely prioritised least mode a lot more since joining the Affiliate and really enjoy it!!!! NATURE IS AWESOME!!!!” Read more ““I get so excited when I see someone wearing an LD Hoodie … instantly friends!””
“I have gone from a size 12 jeans to a comfortable size 10. My face has gotten significantly slimmer and I’ve had lots of comments telling me the same. Binging in the evening times used to be a huge problem for me after coming in from work but since starting with Larry and becoming more aware… of food, that’s stopped and I have meals spread out evenly throughout the day that keep me satisfied. I love the sense of community at LD coaching from everyone it really makes such a difference being involved in something with people with the same mindset as me. For me the biggest changes since starting the Affiliate coaching have been mindset changes. I used to panic if I ever went out for lunch or dinner and couldn’t track food but since starting with Larry I’ve become more aware and am now able to make informed food choices and have stopped being obsessed with tracking everything into MFP.” Read more ““I just feel better in myself and sooo much more confident! I love myself now!””
I have been working with Larry the past 15 weeks and I honestly couldn’t be happier with my results so far – I was going through a stressful time in my life and felt I needed a bit of help with my nutrition and training – my goal was to drop some body fat and… get leaner, which I did but also along the way Larry helped me work on my mindset, my sleep, my daily habits and basically my outlook on life, along with my fitness and eating habits. With weekly check ins with Larry, he was also always on hand with any questions or dilemmas I had throughout the weeks and I always got a prompt reply – I got stronger, got leaner, never ever felt deprived of anything, I was actually eating more food which meant I felt I could socialise more without sacrificing my goals. The best thing I did last year was put my trust in Larry, I couldn’t recommend him enough as a coach if your looking to get in shape, want somebody that has all the knowledge and is genuinely interested in your goals and wants to help you reach them in the best possible way! Read more “I now have more energy for life and along with all of that I’m more positive and happier too.”
I’m loving the training and I see a huge difference and realise I am a lot stronger than I thought, I have come out of my comfort zone. The variety of training you’ve given me every month has been deadly! I’m enjoying training these days as when I started with you I was bored with… the gym. My level of confidence has increased as I’ve learned so much about engagement and tempo. My PBs have also gone up! I don’t feel I’m getting leaner but I know I’m putting on size as I can’t fit my size 8 jeans over my quads & bum anymore haha! I’m pretty active hitting just under 20,000 steps easily daily! I do feel all around better! Loving the food tips and affiliate page Kate is some cook!! As a PT myself here is so much you have taught me through your Facebook group that I apply all the time!” Read more ““I’ve been a steady 70kg for a number of months now and in the last month I’ve gone down 4lbs!!””
After competing in powerlifting for the past 5 years or so I told my self I had to put on weight to get strong which resulted in some strength gains and a whole lot of fat gains…after a chat with Larry about my health I decided to jump on the Affiliate “team”. I say team… because there is so much support from Larry Kate and the rest of the Affiliates.
Just from learning about foods rather than being told don’t eat certain foods I’ve lost a huge 9kg in 10 weeks but push the weight loss to one side my over all health is vastly improving, sleeping better and I have much more energy. Driving for a living I was only doing 2-4k steps a day I now hit 10 -14k a day not because I have to but because I want too. If any one is on the side line it will be the best decision you will make,Larry and Kate give you the tools and allow you to progress at your own pace,no pressure just help. For me my over all experience so far has been great. I love the fact if I ask a question it doesn’t just get answered your self and Kate go in to great detail with everything. I have also learned more about building a healthy relationship with food carbs especially. I think the Insta page is brilliant, seeing everyone’s results keeps me motivated!! Read more ““Best decision I’ve made in years, I’ve lost a huge 9kg in 10 weeks””
The regular change in program keeps me motivated, I am enjoying the gym and following the program. It takes the thinking out of it and I have just been enjoying the results. I was stuck at 77.7kg for months and now I’m in the 75kgs and I couldn’t be happier!!
When I started with Larry in May 19 I was not in a good place with with my relationship with food and / or training. Training felt like a choir which I wasn’t enjoying at all. My food was repetitive & boring which led to many binges and creating a yo-yo relationship with my progress… with getting two steps forward and then 3 steps back! As a personal trainer, gen pop think we’re invincible & always in good shape. I was going through some very stressful times in work & I was looking after everyone and everything but myself . Business came first and my own health, mind & body was put on hold. I quickly packed on the body fat, stopped training & was eating thousands of calories per day, the worst rut I’ve ever been in. From the get go with Larry I felt so relieved & reassured that I had guidance for once. Everything was broken down so simple & easy to understand , the smallest changes Larry introduced me to made the biggest impact. I never knew stress, sleep, digestion all played such a massive part in ones progress! I was dropped Knowledge bombs on a daily basis & each check in every week things got so much easier & better. My training was going better than ever, my strength shot up & my meals were so much more satisfying and varied than before, it was like a whole new world. More importantly my sleep, stress management, energy & digestion was all on point which made a massive difference as opposed to when I was getting 4-5 hours of broken sleep per night. I’ve just finished my first 12 weeks with Larry, dropping 11kgs and to say I’m happy with the progress ( not results ) would be a massive understatement. It has been an investment in myself if anything & I cannot wait to continue under his guidance for the foreseeable future! Larry tough love approach really works wonders, just when you think you’re getting comfortable or start to slip into old habits you’ll soon get a slap of realisation to get you back on track, he is one of a kind!

I previously had issues where I would suffer with constipation and bloating but now have regular movements every morning. I put this down to the increase in vegetables and better sleep. I’ve adopted practises from your facebook posts which have really helped. The biggest factor is leaving my phone in the kitchen at night which… I thought I’d never be able to do. I can’t stress enough the difference this has made, I previously would have stayed up past midnight scrolling instagram or stuck in a conversation, and when the alarm would go off I’d “wake myself up” scrolling lose 20 minutes, then would start the day off in the rush and the entire day would be affected. I’ve pushed myself to lift heavier and have hit PBs on squats, bench press and trap-bar deadlift. I’ve been stricter on sticking to my macros / calories which I’m not finding too difficult as I’ve completely stopped tracking vegetables and am loading up on them (taking inspiration from you and Kate’s instagram). I’m not as stressed out about trying to fit in the gym most days of the week as the plan is only 4 days and in turn feel better. The decrease in stress and having time to do other things I previously couldn’t has been a major positive.” Read more ““I have seen major improvement in my digestion and my sleep. This alone has had a major positive effect on my mood and how my body feels””
From day 1 working with Larry and Kate it’s been a consistent flow of great programs, a professional set up and precise nutritional guidance. It’s not a one size fits all approach, Larry got to know my day to day life and made the process unique to me. It’s finding out what worked best for… me and making it as easy as possible to get amazing results consistently. No restrictions, no fads, just real life advice and an infectious love for what they both do! Thanks guys! Read more “What made the difference was how invested Larry was in me as his client.”
I started working with Larry on a 1 to 1 basis back in February 2019, ahead of my wedding which was in August. I didn’t have a lot of weight to lose, but wanted to ‘tone up’ especially around my mid-section as my wedding dress was very fitted, all whilst remaining primarily focused on my… overall health- something which Larry placed paramount importance on throughout. Throughout my 6 months of coaching with Larry, I learned the importance of consistency and that no drastic measures were needed to achieve the look that I had in mind. I enjoyed plenty of nights out and social occasions along the way and Larry was always there to reassure me and help work these events into my week when needed. Larry placed a huge emphasis on downtime, sleep and digestion- which for me is the most important thing I can take away from the entire coaching experience. Working long hours, getting in training sessions and planning a wedding at the same time came with its fair share of stress- and downtime is something which I have massively neglected in the past which in turn affected my digestion and caused all sorts of stomach issues. I worked with Larry to put measures in place to overcome those issues and after that everything else fell into place. I achieved the results I wanted whilst changing very little in terms of training and nutrition throughout the 6 month period, and improved the overall quality of my life in the process. I cannot thank Larry and Kate enough for their help and support throughout- they have simply been amazing! I am looking forward to continuing my Affiliate journey with them now that my goal has been met and the wedding is over and have learnt many life lessons that I will continue to implement for years to come. Read more “After following Larry and seeing the attention and effort he puts into his coaching, I knew he was the coach I wanted to work with to get me in shape for my wedding day””
I was receiving coaching from Larry for a little over 4 months and I can’t speak highly enough of him and the service he provides. I was fairly happy with my start physique as I’ve always tried to stay in good shape due to Rugby, and coming from a strength and conditioning background I thought… had good knowledge of how to get into shape. However Larry’s knowledge and experience is just phenomenal, and totally changed my way of thinking and how to approach diet and training, which I will now have with me forever. He blew my perspective on ‘cutting’ out the water. The methods he uses makes the whole process so achievable, and at times easy. My past experience of cutting/ dieting has been very restrictive, extremely low calories and very difficult to adhere to. However with Larry, (excluding the last couple weeks) I was eating more than I ever had before and was still loosing body fat, and didn’t feel restricted at all. By the end I had a physique I was delighted with, and was able to hold onto muscle, which ordinarily I would lose whilst cutting. Above all else he gives you the best no BS advice, doesn’t sugar coat and was correct with his forecasting every step of the way (including my estimated finish weight to the exact kg). Any hiccups or worries I had, he would immediately eliminate and be able to tell me exactly what was happening and how to fix it. The confidence that gives you is priceless, and meant I never questioned anything. As I said before, I cannot recommend highly enough. Read more “4 months With Larry totally changed how I perceive the world of training and nutrition, more than any degree or PT course has done in the past.”
Before joining the Affiliate I was spiraling in the gym, my structure was loose and a little bit aimless. Adherence was an issue, but I didn’t necessarily want to jump into a full on 1:1 training programme as I don’t have any huge “goals” to achieve. Every month like clockwork there is a new programme,… keeping things fresh, interesting and ensuring I have progression. If I do slip or have a down week, that’s ok. I don’t have to spiral for weeks, I can just get right back to it. The Facebook group is amazing, whether you lurk or interact there is always an interesting conversation. €30 is nothing compared to what is being offered in this programme. It has become my anchor, when I spiral away I just pull up my big girl pants and get back to the programme. Love it.” Read more ““I just wanted to be fit and healthy and happy. The Affiliate System has been the perfect answer.””
At the beginning I was up and down 1kg but in the past month I’ve lost 4kg consistently and I’m excited to eat well every day. My goal is to get down to 68kg by August (I haven’t been sub-70 in over 6 years!) The Affiliate has provided me with the tools I need to… achieve my goals, as before starting I was a bit lost and in denial about how my own decisions were impacting my progress so thanks guys! Worth every cent!! Read more ““I’m 5kg down in total since starting two months ago!””
I am loving the Affiliate and have been doing it for 3 months now, I am lifting heavier and I am not afraid to push a little more. I know I have to be a little better with hitting my macros to see major results but I’m not afraid to enjoy food and just be… an adult about it.” Read more ““I love the interaction in the Facebook group, it is a constant motivation and support system when I need it.””
I started on the Affiliate in February with a goal to lose body fat and improve my diet in general, to date I’m down 13kg. Reached a point where I’m pretty ready for lean bulk,couldn’t be happier with the progress pics from the start to now. It’s so good to see the hard work that’s… been put in has paid off in this first phase. Feel so much better in myself, sleeping better, less stress, eating soooo much better and my relationship with food is night and day from what it was the past few years. I’ve also learned to REST, before the Affiliate I was training as much as I could sometimes 7 day’s a week but just wasn’t getting results, now I take my rest days and enjoy my down time just as much as training! Just want to say thanks so much to both of you for the time and effort you put in to all this it’s helped me along no end!! Read more “To date I’m down 13kg and my outlook on training and diet has completely changed, for the better!”
I’m going into my forth month on the Affiliate and over the last three months my strength has gone up and my relationship with food has really improved. I don’t have guilt associated with eating certain types of foods and my digestion has drastically increased thanks to all the tips from Larry and Kate. In… the gym, I feel more confident having my plan each month. I’ve learned more with regards to tempo and quality and it has made such a difference to my body. I’m so happy I signed up its so much more than just a gym plan. I feel less pressure and more confidence going into the gym. I have my plan I know what I’m doing going in and I have the Vimeo videos when I’m not sure how to do something (honestly the videos give me so much confidence) I feel I’m more accountable in my food choices but I don’t feel the pressure if I eat a bar of chocolate I’ve failed. Been with a coach in the past that included a strict meal plan and weekly check ins I had a guilt associated with food if I ate off the plan. Now, I make the best choices I can everyday and if I want some apple tart in my nanny’s house I’ll have it!! I’m only accountable to myself and I really feel its made a big difference in my attitude towards food. Read more ““Its the best investment I’ve ever made, I’ve seen more progress in the last 3 months than in the previous 2 years!””
I’ve enjoyed the programmes for the past few months, it was a huge change to my training. Since starting with the Affiliate I’ve done a lot of workouts I generally would have avoided and started doing conditioning which i had never done. I think the biggest changes I’ve seen would be my general health and… fitness levels and also my form and tempo. I always thought my tempo was good until I really started to follow it in the programm. I was frustrated at the start as I had to drop weights and felt I was regressing but was actually progressing as I really started to feel where I was working and focused on controlling the weights.” Read more ““Now I actually enjoy going to train as I have structure to it. I think the affiliate is a great idea and I wish I joined it sooner!””
Before Larry, I had a terrible binge eating problem, where I would indulge in 10,000 calories at least daily through chocolate and sweets easily and then I would feel awful for days but the cycle continued binge, say that’s it no more then repeat. Literally had no control! Over the 30 weeks, I ended up… achieving my goals and more. I feel myself again and rediscovered my love for training. I enjoyed eating out and more normal food whilst achieving goals. Larry enabled me to gain a healthy relationship with food which was the ultimate goal! I do not have any will to binge anymore and I can understand my body more and now can understand what is hunger and what is emotional/ boredom eating. Alongside helping me create a long term healthier relationship with food I also achieved a lot of fitness goals. I ran a Spartan race, Tough Mudder and did a fitness competition whilst losing weight/ bodyfat and feeling awesome. I also work part-time and have college full time so Larry has been very accommodative and worked with me to help me manage life with all training and food! Despite my v busy life, we still hit PRs nearly weekly. Larry has been such a major help in 2018 to me, guided me through the struggles and coached me to reach all my goals. Read more “I lost over 10kg, got way leaner but my main thing was my attitude toward food became normal.”
When I made the decision to work with a coach there was no doubt in my mind who I wanted it to be. Larry’s expertise, experience and knowledge in the field drew me to him. Achieving incredible results while maintaining health and client focused values, in an industry where that is often neglected for the… sake of a before and after, shows just how incredible a coach he really is. When I decided to take the leap into competition last January I was initially scared but Larry made my first prep the most enjoyable and worthwhile experience I’ve ever had. The amount of guidance Larry provided throughout what can be a very stressful time made it far less daunting and his understanding of the human body and competitors mentality meant he could provide the best support. Larry got me into a condition and shape I never thought possible while helping me become the strongest I have ever been! Read more “Larry has instilled a belief that I can do whatever I set my mind to! Like all of his clients I am so lucky to have him!”
I think it’s so easy to scroll Instagram and want to look like a Victoria’s secret model and I’ve found through the Affiliate I’d rather just be the healthiest, fittest version of myself. The program has opened my eyes to how much I was overtraining and how important rest is. I love the community and… the ability to always ask questions. I feel more confident in ‘bulking’, which is something I’ve been trying to do for a while for health reasons. Since December I have gotten much stronger in the gym, and have absolutely zero fear of lifting heavy things (especially in upper body sessions). I train less than I used to but am seeing so much more muscle growth and my energy has skyrocketed!” Read more ““My metabolism has improved so much and I can now eat 400+ more calories than I was in December and still maintain my weight happily, it’s brilliant!””
As an owner of 2 PT studios I have always worked long hours but always managed to fit my training in somehow. However, after the birth of my daughter I found it extremely difficult to get motivated with lack of sleep, trying to juggle everything. When I finally decided to pull myself out of a… rut that had lasted 5 months I made the choice that, for the first time in my life, I was going to get a coach to help me get my mojo back for training. I sought out Larry because I really enjoyed his content, especially his Snapchat and Instagram content. Larry is a no nonsense straight talker who consistently puts out excellent content on social media. I have really enjoyed outsourcing my training and nutrition strategies to Larry. It has been refreshing. It is important for fellow PT’s to understand the importance of having their own coach. It can give you a new direction. Being accountable to somebody for the first time in my life helped massively with my compliance, both from a training, and a nutritional point of view. If somebody is looking for a knowledgeable coach I would recommend Larry in a heartbeat. Read more “Larry’s knowledge and experience are why I chose him as a coach. He has walked the walk as well as talked the talk over the last number of years.”
I had been following Larry on Social Media for a while & loved reading his content. It was factual & straight to the point, hitting some home truths! In November 2017, I contacted Larry to enquire about online coaching but at the time, he had no spaces available, which I think speaks for itself. A… spot on his programme became available early 2018 & I began 1:1 online coaching with him from January. Larry has years of experience in the fitness industry & is a wealth of knowledge so I was excited to get started. Over the last 6 months, I have learnt so much from Larry & he guided me through prep for a holiday, where I hit the beach feeling & looking good but most importantly, I felt confident in my own skin. Programmes are set, check ins done, responses are quick & adjustments made where necessary. He is fantastic & I feel lucky & privileged to be working with him as a coach. I am really looking forward to working with him in the future & seeing what can be achieved! Read more “Larry guided me through prep for a holiday, where I hit the beach feeling & looking good but most importantly, feeling confident in my own skin”
My general health has become so much better, I’m making adult food choices effectively and engaging in constant support & education from the Facebook group.”
What will YOU be writing as your success story in 6 months time?
I am learning and understanding new exercises. I feel more confident in the gym because the videos have been a great help. The fact the program changes every month also means I don’t get bored so it means I am always excited to go to the gym and try new exercises.”
The Facebook forum gives great tips and diet hakes, I find it very helpful. My strength has gone up due to finally tracking all sessions.”
Before I started I was a 70/30% guy, pretty good Mon-Thurs then going off track on the weekends. But I’m finding it much easier to be consistent now, and I’m still enjoying life, travelling around different parts of Australia while still being consistent for my goals which I’m loving. But over the last 4 months… or so I have fell in love with training again, I’m absolutely loving it at the moment.” Read more ““Since starting the affiliate program I’m making much better food choices and having much more diversity in my diet.””
I’ve lost emotional attachment with food. No food is good or bad to me anymore. I used to freak out if I even ate a sweet, like one sweet!! I eat like an adult, I plan for my treats, and even if I don’t plan I just move forward. I train 90% of the year so… a blow out here and there won’t change me overnight. The gym sessions are very good, I know what I should be doing through the video content. My strength has changed greatly, particularly upper body. I love the changes in plans month to month yet the compound lifts are still in there. My upper body has scaled in a lot, particularly my arms and shoulders. I get out a lot more for walks in fresh air.” Read more ““Now I find I don’t stress about food at all. I’m eating more than ever and I love it.””
I came into this programme off the back of a knee injury and I was scared to do legs incase I agitated it but with your help I got over that fear and am back squatting heavy. The best thing is that I have my mojo back, I train at 5:30 in the morning and… now I feel so much more energized. The videos on Vimeo are very helpful in just knowing what I’m going to be do in the gym and am completely motivated to go to the gym and get it done and done well!” Read more ““Your Instagram page and Facebook page really help when comes to food ideas (can’t wait for the book till you knock Joe Wicks off his perch haha)””
I have known Larry for several years (2013). I have seen him in action many many times on the gym floor but this was my first experience of working with him (via the Affiliate). I reached out to him at the end of July 2019 – just back from a family holiday. I have 2… young (active) kids (3&7), work as a Project Manager for a large IT / Pharma company and travel quite a bit (from time to time). I have always been very active and lifted in the gym 3-4 times a week. Generally would eat well (generally) but the last 6-12 months, no real structure in terms of training or food. I also for the first time in my life didn’t have the energy I once had. With turning 40 in Feb 2020 – I decided to use this as a ‘kick in the @rse’ to myself to get myself back on track. The affiliate makes things easy. They (Larry & Kate) give you the support to start your journey but also to maintain. It is easy information to absorb, little by little – never over complicated. I really enjoy the conditioning that is part of the plan. Now, I prioritize my 4 sessions per wk and I do meal prep again (btw no food plans are given, just high level macro breakdown, so YOU eat foods YOU enjoy – make it work for you). The guy’s also share tonnes of food ideas on a daily basis. Nothing is off the table, it is up to you to mange how & what you eat. The next stage for myself is to go into an ‘improvement cycle’ which will also see me eating a LOT more food ……I cannot wait for this!! Read more “Over 4 months I lost 30lbs, my energy levels went up, my quality of life and outlook vastly improved. I feel a lot more like my old self!”
I approached Larry for the typical lose body fat and to ‘tone’ etc but what I got in return was so much more, yes my body composition changed dramatically. Could I be happier with my appearance…of course us ladies are never happy with some body part!! Coming from a powerlifting background my training changed and… I loved it, a tailored programme to suit me and my needs. Larry shared his expert tips and advice made it life long coaching instead of short quick fixes like I see with many ‘PT’s’ . Especially with nutrition he has taught me its not a diet, its a lifestyle and how to include everything into my eating so I didn’t end up binging. I have never ate as much especially CARBS haha! Larry has taught me so many things on a different level mentally and physically. I have become a lot more confident in myself. He has helped me out with his words of wisdom on how to deal with day to day stresses and has shown me how these affect my body. Read more “He’s a top class coach and goes above and beyond for his clients.”
When I started coaching with Larry I was at a very low point in my life. I had done my research and knew this was an investment I needed to make for me, and my mental health and I haven’t looked back since. Quite simply working with Larry has changed my life ten fold. When… I reached out to him, I had lost all love and motivation for training, had developed a severe bad relationship with food and comfort eating and a strong sense of disgust for myself and my body and couldn’t see a way out of it. If you are looking for a quick fix however, Larry is not your man. Instead, we addressed all possible issues and factors that would contribute to giving me the best quality of life and health benefits possible and ensure that the results would be long term and more beneficial to me than just a quick before and after transformation photo. His support is second to none, period. From the very get go he made it extremely clear to me that he cared very much about me and taking interest in every little detail I would tell him or concern I had. A few months later I genuinely can’t quite believe how far I have came under Larry’s guidance, and just how much my confidence, quality of life, health, attitude, mindset, relationship with food and passion for training have all improved since we began together. It’s the after, after photo that best sums up Larry’s work. All you got to do is follow the plan, it’s as simple as that! Read more “Working with Larry has been the best investment I have ever made for myself and is so much more to me than any before and after transformation photo.”
So nearing the end of my cut phase while on the Affiliate and to say I’m happy with my results is an understatement. With just little over a kg to go before I start a lean gain phase and a huge 20kg off I would just like to say a huge thank you to Kate… and larry for all their support during these last 8 months! Never leading me astray and keeping things simple.
No magic wonds just consistency and adherence. 🙌 Can’t wait to see what this time next year will look like and maybe a little goal for 2021 to tick of the bucket list 😉 Thanks a mill guys.. foundation laid let’s get building!! Read more “To say I’m happy with my results is an understatement… a huge 20kg off in 8 months!!”
Actually having a program to follow is a huge help, I used to do my own programs, get bored and then just make up my sessions on the spot. The Affiliate program is great because I know it changes every month which I find is just the right amount of time for me so I… don’t get bored. Tempo training is another level!! I never trained by tempo but I really love it, had to lower the weights on some lifts which kind of annoyed me at the start but I’m totally fine with it now because I can feel myself getting stronger and really targeting the muscles correctly.” Read more ““I’m really loving the Affiliate, the biggest result for me is feeling super healthy. I’m eating so many veggies guilt free and I feel more energised from all the extra micros!!”
I’ve learned to actually keep account of my daily calories which has been very effective. I know exactly what I am doing in the gym every day and no messing about. I have been steadily putting on weight (lean gain) and as of this morning I am up 3.3kg since the start of December. “… Read more ““I really enjoying not having to plan my workouts just show up and knock out what I need to.””
I definitely haven’t been the most communicative client you’ve had, but I’ve made so much progress since I joined the Affiliate in September. I started off bored and no motivation left in the gym, but the different workout plans you provided every month really took me out of my slump and gave me that kick… I needed. I started off my plan after coming back from the States where I weighed 180lbs and I am now just hovering below 160lbs, and I’ve never felt better. I’ve built up so much body confidence since starting and that’s the main thing I was looking for from this. I can’t thank you enough Larry and Kate for changing my outlook in the gym, on food and just the way I go about life in general. Thanks for everything, you guys are doing an amazing job!

I went to Larry with one simple plan to get me in the best condition possible in 16 weeks. I have known Larry’s work for some time now and knew he was the man to help me achieve my goals through his training and nutrition plans and he did not disappoint. I knew it would… be hard running 2 business’s and having a new born child to boot but was willing to do what it took under Larry’s guidance and motivation to get me through the hardest days when I did not feel like getting up early for cardio or when lacking in energy to hit the gym hard. His training programs are all designed around each individual progressing week to week and seeing massive change physically to drive you on to do better each and every week in and out of the gym. Nutrition was pretty much plain sailing not having to go too low calories at all over the 16 weeks which was great to keep me full and still keeping some of my favourite foods in to make the whole process much easier to handle while getting leaner each week too. Read more “I would highly recommend working with this man to get you in the best shape of your life as he is like a book of knowledge.”
I know this sounds dramatic, but before when I was on a set meal plan I felt like I had to sick to that, I said no to a lot of things or if I did go out for dinner or drinks I would feel awful guilt. One of the reasons I signed up to… this was to try get a better grasp of my food choices and not be tied to a strict meal plan. Before I tended to binge a lot or if I ate one thing that wasn’t on my plan or something “”bad”” I would use it as an excuse to write the day off and eat whatever I wanted. Now I still have some days that I over do it but a lot less, since learning how to track macros and what my targets are I can now factor different foods in that I enjoy. I’ve always enjoyed going to the gym but I used to get bored easily as I was doing the same things over and over but now that I’m getting a new plan every month and changing things up. I’m loving going to the gym these days, I’ve really started to push myself more too, and I track all my weights I’m doing and every week trying to push it a bit further even if it’s just for a couple of extra reps. My confidence has come on so much more. I have gotten a lot more confident in myself since starting, I’m still a long way from where I want to be but I’m really happy with the process for far and looking forward to seeing the results for the next few months” Read more ““Now I have learned about counting macros, I have so much more flexibility while being able to stay on track. It doesn’t feel like I’m on a constant diet.””
When joining the affiliate in August I was aware I had a lot of social events coming up so I wanted to maintain self control and be accountable for the food/exercises choices I was going to make. In October I moved to Australia and travelled for 6 weeks before settling in Melbourne where I’m currently… on the job hunt. A lot of stressors and uncontrollables within this time and without the Affiliate I would 100% have just hit the fuckit button and eaten everything in sight! Between Larry and Kate’s advice and the support of the Facebook Group I learned the tools I needed to stay on track. The Affiliate has given me self control – learning not to hit the fuck it button. Instead learning how to manage calorie intake throughout the week while still having the food I love.
I’m excited to go to the gym – before the programme my workouts were so monotonous, now with the workouts switching every 4 weeks it keeps it interesting and definitely challenging I now realise that weight loss isn’t simply diet and exercise alone – I’ve learned to factor in stress, sleep and recovery. Read more “I’m down from 64kg to 60kg and I do not feel like I am dieting.Really enjoying the whole process and could not recommend enough!”
I absolutely love the Affiliate, I can feel the mindset change happen. Most lifts are now at the heaviest they have ever been and I am more confident in my form while performing them. My measurements are on the way down, the scales fluctuates but weight is down on when I started. I love the… monthly change in program, it helps keeps me consistent with 4 days in the gym every week. I am not strictly tracking food and I am making more conscious decisions. I cannot thank you both enough.” Read more ““My relationship with food is the best it has ever been, I feel fantastic in my body, I am confident and comfortable in my clothes while feeling strong and fit.”
I even see some of the lads in the gym following some of my exercise regime now! I’ve learned how to “REST”, how to include tempo into my programs and I have increased confidence in quality of exercise performance.
It’s been 12 years since I first entered the fitness industry as a personal trainer but it had been a few since I’d had a consistent gym routine of my own. I’d grown tired of weights and a crazy travel schedule had left me slack on my food, unprepared and eating on the go. My… main hobby now is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, training 5-6 times a week and so my motivation for coming to Larry was to add some gym work to compliment that training and to get into much better patterns with my food on the go. I was delighted with the progress we made over 12 weeks. Larry got me back into 3-4 regular gym sessions a week that complimented my martial arts training and didn’t drain my energy. He also made me much more aware of the foods I was consuming and helped me stay accountable to changes with my nutrition. I’ve always believed the fastest way to success with anything is to go learn from the best. Working with Larry I got to work with one of the best. Thank you! Read more “I’ve always believe the fastest way to success is to learn from the best. Working with Larry I got to work with one of the best.”
The programming is fantastic, there is great variety and I come away from sessions feeling like I’ve worked hard. Through the guidance of the program and Facebook group, I haven’t felt guilty about not getting to the gym much in June. I went to Spain for 5 days of sunshine (where I did train twice… but was limited by equipment available) but the bigger adventure, which I believe the previous 3 months of Affliate training helped me with, was climbing and summiting Mount Kilimanjaro last week!! An amazing experience and my legs definitely appreciated all the lunges I’d done in the lead of to this trip! I’m really looking forward to just picking up v1.4 once I return home, get back into routine and start training consistently again. Read more ““The information provided in emails and on the Facebook group is incredible and really insightful””
I started the programme with lower back discomfort, 3 months into the Affiliate and I have gone from barely being able to do a body weight box squat to being able to squat up to 50kg and pulling back if I feel I’m overdoing it – another thing I’ve learned…go at my own pace and… listen to my body!! The training videos & fb tips have been BRILLIANT helping me to lift properly/safely. The plan isnt tailered to me specifically but it incorporates all muscle groups and has strengthed my back and core to the point I am no longer in constant pain, I don’t fear the gym anymore and feel empowered! I’ve learned to tailor meals/snacks to my needs and likes and not to sweat the small stuff- don’t get me wrong i still have chocolate etc every day but it doesnt turn into an entire packet of biscuits- they are tracked, managed and fall within the daily calories! I’m very impressed with my results considering I have a full time job, am doing a masters alongside a post grad h.dip (exams, assessments and assignments). I have greater clarity and focus in work & study/college – health body = health mind. Absolutely loving the programme!! Read more ““Ive lost about 5kg (88 to 83kg) the lowest I’ve been in 2 years all down to applying everything I’ve learned through the Affliate!!”
I release now that in the past I was not training with enough intensity and with the Affiliate I’ve learned to drive myself further, get that extra rep etc. I’m learning something everyday whether its training, macros or general health knacks. Legs are stronger and recover faster. My mindset has been positive and my time… management and organisation has improved. I’ve started reading again after 10 years!! Sleep has been improving and energy is consistent. The best investment I’ve made in a long time and the support is fantastic. Thank you!” Read more ““Physically I’ve dropped from 82kg to 76.9kg while strength is increasing and weekend binges are no longer a factor.””
I have really enjoyed my time so far. I have done 12 week programs before and got good results, but because I was checking in weekly I would find myself becoming obsessive and getting upset if I slipped up with food or missed a training session, where as the affiliate has taught me about taking… responsibility and moving on, and enjoying the process! I think it is really good value for money considering its a new program every month and lots of tips/recipes/q&a’s etc! I recently squat 70kg for 5×5, bench pressed 30kg (this is a big thing for me as this was never a good lift for me). I’m not too hard on myself if i make a bad food choice or miss a couple of gym sessions for whatever reason. I find not checking in with weight/measurements weekly puts less pressure on me. I do it every couple of weeks for myself and am delighted with the results so far! Read more “I am loving the training! I am down 4kg, down cm everywhere and really happy with my progress so far!”
I have improved my own accountability so much, learned to own my choices and be honest in what I decide. Stepping away from technology and finding ways to destress and relax has HUGELY improved my sleep. There will always be hiccups, life happens but being consistent means you can get back in control really quickly.… Eat your veggies!!” Read more ““I have gone from a binge every week to just one in 3 months and I got that in control really quickly””
Since starting the Affiliate programme back in September I have such a different mindset to training and eating. I feel way more in control. Training one day less but training hard, eating lots with treats every day. Slow steady controlled progress in a sustainable manner. Thank you both so much for everything, buzzing for v1.4.… And I feel I may challenge myself to a photo shoot prep as I have never felt physically and mentally as good about me as I do right now so thanks guys! Also maybe start some study of PT training to get that cert!! Read more “In the last 10 weeks or so Iv dropped nearly a half a Stone and inches all around including 4 from my waist! “
I have taken control of my health rather than just doing what a coach tells me and learned I can balance out calories to factor in ‘life events’. The programme doesn’t mean I’m in the gym for hours on end, I like the gym but I have family and friends that I like to see… too! Too often I have had plans where I felt like I had to choose or put it before time with family. I’m making more of an effort to mix up my food sources and also with my sleep routine. I’m not where I want to be with my ‘physique’ yet, but I’ve set a goal for my wedding in October and am working towards that. I’m not 100% all the time but the programme reminds you that consistency is what is needed, not perfection.” Read more ““I wanted something I could learn from and I am – and not just about food and training but about general health and making ‘fitness’ fit in with your life. Excellent value for money.””
I have more confidence in the gym and I’m starting to see my body shape change. I love going to the gym and not having to think about what training I’m doing. It’s all planned out for me! New plan each month keeps me motivated so I don’t get bored of the same training sessions. Life… is so busy with a toddler and my partner works away so having a new plan each month keeps me focused.” Read more ““The video clips are super! They really give me confidence to do the exercises and I’ve started to enjoy training again.””
The support of the Facebook Group is HUGE, no judgement, just help and guidance and supporting you through the ups and downs and helping you find a path through the bad weeks. Finding the silver lining. The recipes and mindset around food is very refreshing – Breakfast style foods aren’t just for breakfast!! My weight… has started tracking slowly downwards and I’m not even 100% compliant on all levels yet but very excited for the coming months once my routine settles back down. Read more ““For where I am in my life its just what I need and I’ve really enjoyed the training””
Most people will look at the difference between the two pictures and notice the obvious weight loss. But what they cannot see, is the improvement in sleep quality, digestion, training knowledge and overall mindfulness when it comes to approaching nutrition. So far I have completed 20 weeks under the guidance of Larry and at no… stage throughout that time, did it ever feel like a burden. I still managed to work my training and nutrition around my schedule and enjoy socializing multiple times per week, all whilst still staying on track. If anything, working with Larry has improved my social life, as it has given me the confidence to actually approach these situations like an adult and be mindful of my own actions. My training has reached new levels in both strength and in execution. I do not approach training with the mindset of a 300lb mass monster, performing every set to failure and killing myself in the gym for 2 hours everyday. Instead I focus on quality over quantity, contracting muscles instead of shifting weights and it shows. What I have gained over the past 20 weeks will influence my actions for the rest of my life and help me in becoming the best version of myself. Signing up to be coached by Larry has probably been one of the best decisions I have made in my life so far, in terms of personal development and I look forward to continuing my work with Larry as we push forward to crush even more goals. Read more “Signing up to be coached by Larry has probably been one of the best decisions I have made in my life so far”
I am so grateful I was in such good hands for my first bikini competition. For me, a coach isn’t someone who sends you diet plans but is someone who supports and looks after you. I can honestly say Larry did just that and more. He has taught me how to eat to properly fuel… my body and never once starved me! Larry kept a very close eye on me throughout and only made
tiny adjustments when necessary. Everything from the training and nutrition was tailored for my own personal needs and what worked best for me. There really is no one size fits all.
I was also never told to do hours of cardio which I was kind of afraid of, it was kept pretty tight for the most part, even as a 9-5 desk worker. Larry was literally there every step of the way.
He was able to answer any questions I had and was always just a text away if I needed him.
On the day of the show I was lucky enough to have Larry there to have a look over me and keep me calm. I couldn’t have been happier with my stage physique and I also managed to take 3rd place in a class of over 20 competitors. For me that’s a massive achievement and could not be happier considering it was my first time on stage. I am now a few weeks post show and I’m feeling so good in myself. Larry got me straight back on track with a new programme and is still keeping a close eye on me. I’m so excited for the next few months to see what progress we can make. Read more “I really cannot recommend Larry highly enough as he is an absolute knowledge bomb and is a true professional in his field.”
I was lucky enough to have Larry prep me for two shows as well as develop into a close friend and mentor. To say that the service and dedication that he provides to his clients goes above and beyond would be an understatement. He can not only help you follow the path to your goals… but he can map out the way – predicting elements as he goes (with almost scary precision). With an uncontested level of knowledge and experience it is genuinely a gift to have him as a coach. This man has an undying love for what he does and the strongest self-imposed duty of care for his clients. With his help I managed to pull back 19kg/41lbs to achieve a stage-ready physique and in the process find my true passion – It is safe to say that without Larry’s guidance I would not have achieved what I did and I would not have found something I truly love. Read more “Larry has an unmatched ability to draw motivation and to instil belief.”
As a PT and full time student myself, I used to go to the gym 5/6 days a week with intentions of just working as hard as I could. This killed my enjoyment and turned something I love into something stressful and more of a task than a hobby. I value rest days more now.… I love having my plan in front of me whereas before when it was on my own terms I would let myself off lightly subconsciously. My love for the gym has changed I feel like I have more value from my training and my efforts. I’m constantly learning new exercises & information. The affiliate programme is just a really good investment in yourself really to be honest and I’m constantly praising and recommending it highly. Still loads to learn as every month has been so different so far! I’m looking forward to what the next few months brings!” Read more ““Since joining Affiliate I have most importantly less stress with more structure and more results!””
Before I started training under Larry I was lacking in confidence both inside and outside of the gym, restrictive around certain food groups and terrified by the number on the scales. I wanted an online coach as I felt I wasn’t getting the most out of my training and at times a little lost From… the get go Larry has continued to encourage me to challenge myself. Any goals I had he helped me break down exactly how I was going to achieve them. He has not only helped me to increase my physical strength/ appearance but he has helped me mentally. I now realise no one-food group is the enemy . If you are looking for short term fixes/ crash diets and extreme training plans, Larry is not the right coach for you. If you are looking for a coach who is invested in giving you the time and helping you achieve long term sustainable lifestyle changes I couldn’t recommend Larry enough. Read more “I can weigh myself and it doesn’t bother me its just a number not my value as a person.”
I’ve been on the Affiliate for just over 6 months now. Before I joined I had been going to the gym training 5/6 times a week. I thought I knew what I was doing. How wrong was I? I definitely wasn’t training hard enough and definitely wasn’t training the right way. Apart from the training,… my diet was a mess. I was one of those people that was terrified of carbs. I was only eating protein and veg. I was running on empty. Pushing myself through training sessions, dragging myself through the day. Food was way down, therefore energy was down. Stress, moodiness and irritability was up! I honestly didn’t know what or how much of what I should have been eating. I knew from the get go Larry is a good coach with an amazing reputation, so I put my trust in him and just went with it and stuck to the plan. This meant eating more and training hard. Not only do I work hard in the gym. I put the same amount of focus and energy into nutrition, sleep, keeping NEAT up and keeping stress down. I have been really consistent throughout and have got awesome results. As he says himself KIFS. Nail the simple stuff and the results with follow. I don’t think I’ve ever felt this good. I just feel healthy! And there is soo much to be said for that. My whole outlook on “health and fitness” has changed since joining the Affiliate. It’s about fuelling your body to perform and knowing when to rest. Listen and respect your body. The monthly programs are just great too. Receiving a new fresh program each month keeps me motivated and interested. I feel like I’ve only started to properly lift weights the past few months. Lifting with correct form and tempo and engaging those muscles. The past 6 months have been such a learning curve for me. Im loving the lifting and eating but I’ve also really started to focus on managing stress and sleep quality. Rather than spending my weekends in the gym, I get out and spend some quality time with my family. We go for a hike every Sunday and we are loving it. I’m really excited for the next 6 months I’m at the stage now where I’m considering a lean bulk. First time ever! Read more ““I am now nearly 7 months in and I have lost 7kg of fat. Energy is through the roof & I feel amazing.””
In the last 5 months for me the biggest change isn’t the scales, but the way I approach food and training has dramatically changed. I now see it as something that fits into my day to day routine, it’s not forced, I have no guilt if I want to eat a choc bar or I… don’t panic if I fall off the wagon. Funnily enough those days are getting less and less. There’s only about 3.5 kg in the difference in those pics, but it shows a steady chipping away while balancing a busy work and having a social life. Thank you so much for everything, so far…. cause I’m not done! Read more “I have a more healthy relationship with how and what I eat, it’s no longer a diet but just what I enjoy.”
Managing stress has become so much better recently. I have suffered fairly bad with anxiety & insomnia the last year but by using the Affiliate I have learned how to de-stress and chill out and it’s pretty much turned itself on its head. Also I’ve become so much more confident in increasing my calories without… spilling over as there was always a fear factor with increasing above maintenance in the past. The pumps I’ve been getting are actually insane!! Why haven’t I been doing this sooner?!” Read more ““Confidence in allowing myself to increase calories, increased body confidence and overall mental state has improved significantly!””
I reached out to Larry in March 2018. I had been with a PT for over a year, tried every diet there was. I thought being with a PT I would achieve results I wanted. I was paying through the roof, they didn’t show up for sessions, and didn’t give me tools I needed, so… I basically threw my money away. When I got in touch with Lar, there was no harsh sale. He asked me what my goals were, fat loss of course. Not only have I lost 12 kilos, I have learned so much more. I sleep at least 8-9 hours per night, I learned to chew my food, resulting in better digestion. My stress levels are very low, I very rarely stress. I learned to take time out for myself and took up reading to now I cannot put a book down. My training has improved so much better, I am stronger than ever. I became an adult about food choices, I made myself accountable for every choice I made weather it was good or bad! At 1st I was afraid to eat all the food but I had to trust Lar. I have had holidays, night out, big events, and Christmas. I used the tools Lar gave me to be adult about it so I made the better choices. I have had bad days but I didn’t beat myself up as I would have before, I take responsibility for my actions and move on. As everyone I’m very busy I’m a mother of 2 and I also work. The choices I make now are life long for myself and my family. Last week Lar recommended I move to affiliate coaching as he thought that was best for me, as he always does puts his clients 1st and not his pocket! I’ve enjoyed every minute with Lar and Kate, I love watching their posts especially Kate as a girl it’s easy to relate to her stories! They are both an awesome, honest and hardworking team and deserve all the success in the future! Would I recommend this team absolutely! I’m a hairdresser who builds relationships with their clients on a daily basis just like Lar and Kate and I’m telling the 40+ clients a week about them along with everyone I know! Thank you both for everything. I look forward to continuing to work with you, and wish you both all the success you deserve! Read more “I lost 12 kilos and I am now eating 2,500+ cals per day.”
I find I am far less stressed in the gym because the workouts are clearly laid out and I don’t have think about what to to next. Paying close attention to rest periods and tempo makes a huge difference when it comes to the weight being lifted and also feeling more satisfied after completing an… exercise/workout. Read more “Since starting the Affiliate I have become far more efficient in the gym”
I initially joined for the monthly training programme but its made me think of so much more other than just what I do in the gym. I have no problem with exercise, if anything I over-train as gym / running / classes are a habit and I love training, its everything else that needs my… attention. Nutrition wise I eat a lot – I am active so it was a question of me factoring in more veg and fruit which I have done really well and also focusing more on protein. The wheels of digestion have never been so good, at least once, sometimes twice a day. I eat SO much more veg and now miss it when I don’t have it along with fruit (those evil sugar carbs lol) and this I feel is a healthy way to be.The tracker sheet is invaluable – I love it and it prompts me to loook at previous weeks to see what i was doing more / less of etc. I’m going into Christmas and 2020 with a better mindset – this is long-term and these changes I’m gradually making will be life long habits and I am 100% on board with it. Hopefully next year I’ll lose a few pounds but its not my life’s mission at the moment – health is wealth. Read more “The training programme is AMAZING – they look super easy but they’re not – really effective, always under an hour and also feel them the next day.”
The facebook and Instagram affiliate accounts are extremely useful even though I might not interact a whole lot I still read everything! Its so handy for asking questions and reading other peoples questions and answers on anything and everything. Getting to the gym and having a structured training plan that I love has also increased… my love for the gym. Not to mention my strength increases week by week. Stress management for me has had a huge improvement. I have a stressful job and never actually realised this until I implemented Larry’s stress management techniques and I’m definitely reaping the benefits, my mind feels clearer, can handle stressful situations a lot better and and I’m sleeping like a baby! Read more ““Never realised how much I needed something like LD coaching until I joined””
I found the past few years that no matter what program or exercise I done I could not shift the few pounds I wanted to but the Affiliate put me in the right direction for food & exercise.
The three biggest takeaways for me: 1. Reducing my overall training load – I’ve gone from feeling like I need to go to work out 5-6 times a week (each time doing a session with some form of high intensity work), to doing 4 solid, tough sessions a week. 2. Feeling comfortable in the weights… room of a gym because I have a kick-ass programme that is easy to understand, follow and ensure I’m working hard. 3. Facebook group and getting more insight into recovery and the benefit of getting out into nature and just enjoying life outside the gym while still making good choices. Read more ““I’ve been delighted with the Affiliate program since joining a few months back””
Started at 78kg in March 2019. I definitely haven’t been perfect, just consistent. I’d say to anyone thinking of investing in themselves is go for it! The pic of me now does not reflect 9 months of perfection – I f*cked up many times over. The difference was that I was accountable and consistent, so when… I did f*ck up I accepted it and moved onto planning the next meal or session. I never waited for a Monday or for January, the time is now whenever that is. Read more “I’m currently sitting at 69kg which is my lowest weight in 7 years!”
I can’t speak of or recommend Larry highly enough. He provides the tools to achieve a balanced healthy lifestyle; suitable exercises and training plans, better understanding of nutrition and its benefits and the ability to learn how to handle life stresses and strains. Often going above and beyond helping me with any issues.
After my first season competing as a bikini athlete, I knew I needed to find myself a new coach. I wanted someone who would view me as an individual and not just a generic “bikini chick.” I had heard only positive reports about Larry and so I reached out for help. The first thing that… Larry made clear was that competing in a show would not happen, unless my body and mind was in a healthy place to do so. Larry is not just concerned with getting me lean for stage – anyone could do that. He sees the bigger picture and the coaching Larry provides goes way beyond nutritional and training advice. I don’t think I could ever fully put in to words what he has done for me. His knowledge and expertise is second to none but this is only complimented by the care and dedication Larry shows to each and every one of his clients. Under his guidance, in 2019 I became Miss Bikini Ireland and in 2020 will take to the International Stage. I am proud to be an athlete of Larry Doyle Coaching. Read more “Over the two years I have been working with Larry he has stayed true to this philosophy – HEALTH comes first ALWAYS!!”
As a coach myself I began 1-1 online coaching with Larry in hope to learn as much as I could while stepping into the shoes of a client for once. I had a goal to get as lean as possible in 6 months but slow and steady for a holiday. No question was too big… for Larry and his knowledge is second to none. I went to Larry to learn about nutrition yet I have been opened up to so much more, the importance of sleep, stress management etc. and have realised how much they play a role in “getting lean”. I encountered a back injury and was frustrated for many weeks yet not once did Larry seem worried, it was all worked around and we made constant progress.
I ate more like an adult with no restrictions and consistently trained and the results came. Little does Kate know she is also a fantastic role model and together they make a solid team! They made the whole experience of “cutting calories” enjoyable. I didn’t even know that could be possible and I can’t thank them enough. Read more “They made the whole experience of “cutting calories” enjoyable.”
I joined Larry’s 1-1 coaching in October 2018 after getting myself in a long term rut of cutting calories during the week and then binging at weekends. I had previously worked with online coaches for 12 week periods before and although I got results – as in the scales went down, I never actually got… to the root of my problem. Larry’s coaching had come recommended by a friend who had used his programme before and had said that he was not like any other online coaches. I was a little apprehensive that I was going down the same 1-1 coaching root as before but I couldn’t have been further from the truth. Larry’s initial screening form was extremely in-depth, literally he wanted to know everything about my lifestyle, training routine, sleep and digestion – I knew from that point I was on to a winner. He wanted to know my long term goals, my aspirations working with him and from the outset I knew this time it wasn’t to lose weight it was to change my relationship with food and to fuel my performance in both Boxing and CrossFit. As the months ticked on my weight continued to creep down, my body shape was changing and my fitness was increasingly improving. I felt great! However my biggest change was in my mindset and this is where I literally owe everything to Larry. I had good days and I had bad days. Things happened in my life that didn’t go to plan. I had rough times in work, family sickness and a lot of other crazy things thrown in for good measure but through Larry’s coaching and supportive attitude I never let these negativity’s or challenge’s affect my eating habits which I would have done so before (Emotional eater). Larry over the last 10 months has become a confident to me and we have literally never met! Not only has he helped me achieve my goals but he has been an ear to my worries, my doubts and my bumps in the road. I feel absolutely great and I am extremely excited to move to the Affiliate. I have lost 6 kilos, 15 inches all over and all the while gaining muscle – my body is in the best shape it’s ever been and my training has never been better. I am fuelling my body correctly to move faster and lift heavier in workouts, I am continuously getting new PB’s or small wins in weaknesses and the best of all is, there is not one day that I feel I have been hard done by, by following a ‘diet’. I allow myself my treats, I go out for dinner and I occasionally drink! What more could you ask for!
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Larry and Kate and build up a rapport across the internet that feels like he’s right there with me as I check-in on a Tuesday morning. I believe I now have the knowledge and confidence to go it alone with the support of the Affiliate, knowing that if I have any issues I would have the support and guidance immediately if needed.
Thankyou so much for everything you have done for me! I will never be able to sing your praises high enough. Read more “Larry has helped bring the spark back into my life as I now have the confidence in my own body to be the best version of myself.”
I’m getting stronger and leaner despite eating more, and I feel better knowing that what I’m doing in the gym isn’t pointless and that I’m not wasting my time. I’ve been going to the gym for 2 years now and I would never know when or where I should increase the weight and how much… I should be eating, as well as feeling like my workouts were doing nothing for me.. which I’ve learned since doing the Affiliate programme, it all came down to not tracking what I lift each week and not eating enough.” Read more ““I definitely have a better relationship with food and I am not afraid to eat more than 1,500 calories a day!”
I have stopped over complicating it and I got my love for weights back. I started at a 40kg back squat, I am now at 60kg. My trap-bar deadlift has gone from 50kg to 80kg and my single arm row has gone from 7kg to 15kg!! My scale weight hasn’t changed much but my measurements… are down and I can feel the difference in my clothes.” Read more ““I have learned how to optimise nutrition and also most importantly still live my life””
I’m no longer scared to eat, I now eat to fuel my sessions. I’ve found food freedom and stopped obsessively counting macros. I have so much more structure in my gym sessions and no longer spend time killing myself, I get in and get it done. I now know how to balance a night out… and not ruin my progress, I’m so much happier in myself and feel like a normal 22 year old. This would not have been possible without you guys and I am so thankful. Keep doing what you’re doing!!😊 Read more ““I’ve upped my calories, upped my strength and found freedom!””
For the first couple of months I wanted to get a healthier relationship with food and training, having come from a very difficult place with self perception and a poor relationship with food. Now after 3 months on the Affiliate my mindset is in a great place.
I’ve been a member now for 3 months and I’m absolutely loving it! Its exactly what I needed to give me the knowledge and confidence to go into the gym and smash a great workout. My nutrition has improved and Ive added loads more vegetables and fruit to my meals. Knowing the macros is a… great help. Ive always been a good sleeper anyway but Im making an effort to have a better night time routine, less phone activity, dimmed lights etc. It’s a superb service you provide and I’m so grateful for it!

For me this isn’t just a physique transformation, it’s a mental one also. I’ve always been very self conscious of how I looked and what people thought of me since been over 20 stone at 18 and up until recently even been fit. Working with Larry and Kate and joining the affiliate has been the… best decision of my life as not only have I got into the best shape of my life so far but my relationship with food and the scales has 100% improved. With the affiliate it’s not just about the food or training side of it but the support and the fact they actually care about you is what makes them by far the best in the business.

In the gym I have shifted my focus to, in equal parts, weight, tempo, and technique. Where previously all I concentrated on was lifting as heavy as possible.While on the Affiliate I have developed a better relationship with food which not only results in better body composition but also a more mature and less guilty… mentality when it comes to food. I have also really enjoyed tracking and making improvements in the gym. Read more “The Affiliate a perfect mix of detailed programming with the flexibility needed for adherence.”
Seeing other people’s experiences in the Facebook group is so helpful and reassuring, especially Kates. On Instagram everyone has their shit together so it’s helpful to see other people struggle with the same issues as me. The weekly tracker has helped me hugely with accountability.”
Learning new exercises, even as a PT there’s always so much to learn and correct form is something I’ve really focused on. I feel my workouts have benefited and have definitely gained strength. The conditioning was new for me and made me realise its something I should be working on to keep my fitness levels… up and that heart of mine happy and healthy. With the food I was always team veggies so I love how you and Kate both promote that so much. I’m learning so much I can pass on to my own clients something I never even imagined would happen when I first signed up.” Read more ““As a PT myself structure it something I struggled with big time, I love having the Affiliate plan to follow, the change up every month keeps it exciting and interesting.””
Really enjoying the training. I have exams in May and I am changing roles in work so it has been difficult, but I still hit my training. But need to document my food and training a bit better. With everything else going on training is just my outlet. But diet will need to improve this… month.” Read more ““I just love the training programs, the leg programs are brilliant””
In September 2018, I went to Lar with the goal of adding some lean mass along with improving things like digestion, training quality and my relationship with food. After spending 7/8 months in a surplus, we pushed calories to 800/1000 higher than I ever had before (something extremely difficult if you’ve ever been obese &… have had a fear of putting on the weight again). Alongside this, my digestion significantly improved with more awareness around meal timing and my food choices, as well as improving my lifestyle tenfold. I was able to enjoy more meals out & social events with those who mean most, increase my energy levels and improve work quality, along with having a higher life satisfaction. After getting to a stage where we were happy with the tissue added & with a summer holiday in mind, we began to put a plan in place entering a controlled deficit phase to tighten things up. As I write this I am now “finished” up working on a 1-1 basis with Lar and on my way to the sun for a well deserved break from work & life in general. One of the things I have been most impressed by Lar is his genuine care for the health of his clients and his no BS approach. I am a far more educated, aware and confident person than I was even 10 months ago. I can’t thank Lar enough for his alignment with my goals (these non sexy wins are often something which get kicked to the curb when people think about working with a “PT” or a “Coach”). Of course as a by product I am looking the leanest and fittest I have ever looked which is a “nice to have”. We’re down 10+ kg from March 2019 and I haven’t been this light (73.5kg) since I was 10 or 11 years old! Considering I’ve completely changed my lifestyle and body composition this is also a huge win for me. As I move forward I now better understand how my body functions, what my stress triggers are, why/when to train, how important rest is for me to be at my best, and how vital it is to make time to switch off from the world. After the 10 months on the 1-1 Programme, I’m very much looking forward to enjoying my holiday and progressing onwards with Lar on the Affiliate programme from September. Forever grateful to team LD! Larry & Kate – you’re awesome! Read more ““I have been most impressed by Larrys genuine care for the health of his clients and his no BS approach.””
I had originally been with Larry for 1:1 coaching last year and I learned so much, so much that I felt like I didn’t need the 1:1 as much, I wasn’t ready to go it alone though as I felt I needed a bit of structure to keep me going and to keep me accountable,… the Facebook group is brilliant and it was great to learn tips and new recipes from other people on the same path – also love the weekly Q&A – the workouts are tough and definitely some things I wouldn’t make myself do but I love that. Larry and Kate are so warm, welcoming and helpful- never make you feel like you are asking too much, Larry gives you the tools and makes it easy to feel like your exercise and dieting is a lifestyle, rather than just giving you a meal plan and sending you away confused as to why you might be eating something or doing something! Read more ““I love the community aspect of the affiliate program, 10/10 would recommend to a friend!””
I’ve really joined the programmes so far! Eating everything is a bonus too!! My strength is increasing all the time with many PB’s happening. Over all I would definitely recommend to a friend/family, although I don’t interact with the Facebook page I do get a lot from it and find it very beneficial!”
My sleep, digestion and stress management have never been better which has had a knock on effect on my mood and performance at work and the gym. Larry and Kate are great at putting out informative content, a rarity on social media these days. I learned to pull myself out of a rut that lasted… almost a year. I had lost all motivation and confidence in the gym and was just going through the motions when training. I’m now able to factor in social occasions, nights out, holidays etc without the fear of eating something “off plan”. The programme is well structured, adaptable and maintainable. I’ve lost a few kilos but most importantly I’m enjoying my training, eating well and enjoying life again.” Read more ““It’s not a transformation programme about aesthetics, unlike other programmes I’ve followed in the past, it puts a huge focus on health to set you up with good habits for life.””
I have spent the past year working one to one with Larry and it has been absolutely amazing. I have advanced so far, not only physically and mentally – but in so many other aspects also. When I started with Larry I had just finished an extremely intense diet period. I was desperate to get… my body into ‘the best shape ever possible’. Literally only focusing on what I was seeing in the mirror. I was on really low calories and doing hours and hours of cardio. I was totally and utterly, fully absorbed and completely obsessed. I was seeing results (obviously). But I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t healthy. I had developed such a poor relationship with food. This lifestyle was having an impact on so many aspects of my life, my social life, my relationships, my relationship with myself and my relationship with food. Needless to say, following such a restrictive plan took its toll – I was no longer enjoying the process, enjoying my food or even appreciating my results. I felt like there had to be a better approach. Thats when I reached out to Larry. Larry understood where I was coming from when I filled him in on what was going on. I signed up and got started. Larry maintained consistent contact while I was starting off. Offering encouragement, advice, guidance and support. The focus of check ins quickly shifted from focusing on weight and measurements, to the main priorities being general health and well being, water intake, digestion, activity, stress levels as well as enjoyment in and out of the gym. Reminding me of the much bigger picture. I soon got to learn the importance of the foundations. Diet:
***I am using the above word for lack of better term! There is certainly no ‘diet’ when working with Larry. No food groups cut out, no foods off limits. The food side of it is so person specific. I had been following a meal plan previously. Which included maybe… ten foods… The same foods, every meal, every day. I felt, personally, that this really had an impact on my relationship with foods. I used to LOVE cooking and baking. I used to really enjoy my food, I was such a foodie. Over that restrictive period I genuinely found myself becoming somewhat afraid of foods. Larry thought me how to count my macro nutrients and I can safely say I have never looked back. During the initial period with Larry he helped me work on my relationship with food. Teaching me and encouraging me, that no foods were bad. I soon learned how important nutrition was, how important it was to fuel our bodies. And soon after that I rekindled that love I had for food and cooking. Counting macros gave me freedom to cook/eat/enjoy whatever foods I felt like. Now the most important thing I learned about diet with Larry was how to eat like an adult. How to fit in meals. How to actually fuel my body. How to enjoy a bit of whatever I liked. How to factor In whatever was going on in my life. How to eat out at social occasions, how to eat on the go in a busy lifestyle and how to manage when you get caught out. I now feel like I can comfortably stay on track whatever my lifestyle throws at me. Im not missing out, I’m managing things and being smart. Fitness:
As I mentioned earlier, when I started with Larry I had just finished an intense low calorie, high output phase. My energy levels were diminished and my strength was in my boots. A couple of weeks in and my energy levels were through the roof. My cardio was probably about a quarter what it used to be – HOWEVER, it was so much smarter. It was genuine cardio, focusing on heart rate and effort. Previously I was just looking at getting X amount of time done on cardio equipment. Thats when I realised I really wasn’t as fit as I thought! I was struggling to reach my target heart rate for the given time. Just last week I ran 8.5KM in a personal best time. Yesterday I was on the treadmill running and it just felt effortless – I couldn’t run fast enough to get my heart rate up into my heart rate zone! Such an opposite complaint to what I had starting off. My strength is also way up again, even beyond what it used to be. I am definitely the fittest and strongest I have ever been. Health:
Over the past couple of years my resting heart rate had always been on the higher end of normal. Maybe late seventy’s, early eighties. As I started to progress with Larry, making little wins in every aspect – I really noticed this starting to drop. It settled into the sixties and I was delighted, felt amazing. Lately, I’ve noticed it dropping down as far as fifty four. This is not only fitness and health related, there are so many other attributing factors that I learned about along the way. I have always had really poor gut health – I even have memories of it as a child. I had gotten used to it really and wasn’t taking any notice of it. Then I started with Larry and he immediately flagged it, highlighting it as a major priority. It needed to be sorted. As he said himself, I could be dieting all year round and doing excessive amounts of cardio – but when the foundations are off, you are swimming against the current. And it proved to be so true. I got medical advice and was put on a strict elimination diet. At the time I worried about how it would effect my work with Larry, or my progress. Needless to say it was not a problem. Larry was so supportive and a wealth of knowledge. The freedom of following a macro plan rather than a diet plan made it so possible. A year on and I don’t even know myself. I am now aware of what foods I need to avoid and why. In every check in Larry had focus on this aspect, because it was so specific to me. My plan was always tailored to suit me perfectly. Lifestyle:
Without a shadow of a doubt I’ve a hectic lifestyle. I work a full time job, forty hours a week, chaotic work conditions and high stress levels. I do shift work. Go from nights to days as required. Ive always loved fitness and exercise, its always been my outlet. So I have to say, I’ve always made time for it. Training with Larry, I was definitely spending less time in the gym, because I was training so much smarter than before. Quality over quantity. Larry is a big fan of stress management (I thought you were crazy when I started Lar, sorry lol). And I have to admit it took me awhile to see why. Larry was constantly encouraging me to do some ‘least mode’ every single day, preferably something outside the gym. I went with it (probably reluctantly at the start! Thinking I didn’t have time) I started factoring in short periods. Reading a few pages of a book. I downloaded the headspace app. Going for a light walk outside. I rated my stress on my tracker every day. I started to see patterns of when I was scoring my stress high, my weight would spike, my general health would suffer. Larry encouraged me to not take on too much. Less can be more. When my work schedule was hectic, or my shifts changed to nights, the first protocol was to pull back. Pull back from intense training. Increase least mode. Listen to my body, be kind to myself. I would have always just ploughed on and burnt myself out. But when I took a step back I soon came to realise that my results were so much more consistent and sustainable. It took me awhile to realise, but the likes of stress, mindset, lifestyle, water, digestion and general day to day activity – the foundations – are nearly more important than the training and the calories. You can’t build a house without foundations. Put in the ground work, give yourself the time, invest in yourself and you will reap the rewards. There is no need for hours upon hours in the gym, low calories, or any of the other mad measures. I spent years following the above and in one year training with Larry I’ve learned more, had better returns in every department and best of all discovered to manage it all.

Even when there is a hard day at work going to the gym and doing the program gives you a clear head and makes you feel so much better . It’s helped so much with my food intake and understanding of food. I wanted to be able to go the gym on my own and… now I can. After been sick for 2 months the program helped me get back to feeling better about myself.” Read more ““The best thing I’ve done in a long time, I have the confidence to walk into a crowded gym and do my own thing””
I have seen huge results both mentally and physically. Eventhough I’m in a gaining phase I can see results with lifting heavier. Also just been able to see each lift improve and adding on more weights every week!
