- Coaching with Larry 6 months
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, headspace, 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.

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. It's been a life changing 6 months, looking forward to continuing this journey with him.

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. His knowledge and experience are the 2 clinchers as to 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 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.

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.
For me contacting Larry was the best decision. He’s a top class coach and goes above and beyond for his clients.

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. I really cannot recommend Larry highly enough as he is an absolute knowledge bomb and is a true professional In his field.
- Coaching with Larry for over a year
I started online coaching with Larry almost a year ago after I had hit a brick wall with training and nutrition. I had tried to do it alone but really needed guidance and someone to keep an eye on what I was doing. I felt I was developing an unhealthy relationship with food and eating which needed sorting out. My diet was restrictive; I had eliminated almost all carbs and was constantly cutting calories if I felt progress had stopped. Ironically, I was putting on weight rather than losing it. Combine this with training in the gym most days as well as 2-3 hours cardio and you’ll see why I needed a dig out.
Larry has been in charge of both my training and nutrition ever since. Gradually he reduced my cardio to a minimum, making strength training a priority and giving me a much needed structure to follow.
My starting point was 1200 cals + 12 km of additional cardio per day to my current position of zero/minimal cardio + 3000 cals.
More importantly, he has steadily increased my calorie intake on a weekly basis (doubling what I previously ate) and reintroduced carbs (bringing me up to over 300g most days). That’s a lot of food by anyone’s standards and while none of it happened overnight, having him monitor my progress on a weekly basis is invaluable. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t challenge me but I’m relatively determined and trust him 100%.
As a coach, what can I say? I’ve huge respect for him-simple as. His knowledge of training and nutrition, his work ethic, his patience with me are second to none. Most of what I know, I’ve picked up from him along the way.
In a time where there’s so much misinformation surrounding health and fitness, there’s only a handful of people I’d ask for advice. Larry’s my first port of call- nothing’s sugar coated and I love that. I know he won’t take the credit for it but I’m 100% happier and cannot think of anyone I’d rather have to be accountable to.
- Coached with Larry on multiple occasions for photo shoot and competition
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 businesses and having a newborn 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.
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 and always there to answer any questions you may have.
- Competition Prep Client
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.
Larry has an unmatched ability to draw motivation and to instil belief. 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.
- Coaching with Larry for 6 months
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, I now have more energy for life and along with all of that I’m more positive and happier too.
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!
- Coaching with Larry for a year
I started working with Larry almost a year ago. I signed up having seen some photos of myself I was not at all pleased with.
A bit of background, I actually started my weight loss back in 2012 where I lost a lot of weight and was down to a size 8-10 however to get there I cut out fats and carbs almost completely, as you can imagine it worked great however I went on holidays to the states and had 2 free weeks there enjoying food, came home and before I knew it the weight had piled back on I had fallen back into bad habits without even realising having had a taste of all the food I cut out.
Roll forward when I decided to change it again and get back to the gym, I tried an 8 week boot camp style class and it wasn't for me, it was then I seen triage pop up on my instagram and I began to follow them. I then decided to bite the bullet and sign up, I was almost afraid to get back into it in case I failed at it again (losing is easy, maintaining I found tough).
Larry, however, was amazing we went through different nutrition plans over the first few months and found what worked for me best. I was not eliminating food groups, still enjoyed my nights out for dinner and drinks and continued to lose weight. The lower my weight got the the harder it was to lose however I was slimming down by way of body comp and the muscle I was gaining.
At my lowest I was 144 pounds, previously 185 pounds, (still technically classed as overweight for my height) and a size 10 jeans (I use jeans as a measure as I carry all my weight in my hips). My wedding and honeymoon were the end goal for 2017, I was so comfy on my wedding day as I was fit to party all night while carrying a fully beaded dress on me all day! My honeymoon was a safari and it involved a lot of hiking, across various terrains, something I would not have been fit enough to do at the start of last year. I had an amazing honeymoon something I will never forget.
Larry has helped me get my life back in more ways than one. I cannot thank him enough for everything and the patience he has with me. The amount of knowledge he has obtained is instantly noticeable in the way he deals with clients, the video library he has also put together is amazing, training has never been easier as I didn't feel overwhelmed back in the gym as I knew exactly what I was doing. He is an excellent coach and I'm so glad I made the choice to send that email way back in Feb 2017. Here's to an amazing 2018 while we work on getting the wedding/honeymoon weight off!
- Coaching with Larry for over 6 months
The passion and dedication that you as a client put into your goals is the same passion and dedication that Larry has for coaching. He is constantly learning, honing, improving his craft and for a client that means absolutely no stale, irrelevant info. You will receive top-class, absolutely individual coaching as a client of Larry's, and attentive attention to detail.
Larry knows the difference between snowflake excuses and when genuine stress impacts your life, and tailors your plan to be able to adapt to all manner of upsets. This kind of intuition can't be taught, and it's a rarity.
As a client I was never "programmed", I was educated. Never given meal plans or workouts I didn't understand. Larry explained absolutely every element of what I was doing and why. Larry doesn't just get you to your goals, he helps you to understand HOW you're getting there; this is education for life meaning you don't just slip back into old ways as soon as you attain your goal.
Above all, Larry won't pander to you or sell you the moon and stars. He's absolutely realistic and will put the health and wellbeing of a client at the heart of everything. Healthy, balanced approaches with all clients; food, sleep, mindfulness, stress management and training volume. It's all factored in.
- 4 months full coaching but over a year on and off!
Larry helped me get back to ‘normal’ after I struggled hard post-comp. I learnt to stop binging and become more comfortable with my nutrition and was finally happy with my body!
- Coaching with Larry 6 mon
Having done a few diet plans over the last few years where the food was laid out meal by meal, I decided I wanted to learn how to fuel my body correctly, lose body fat for good and develop a good relationship with food. After doing some research I contacted Larry for more information. I always admired Larry on social media for his no nonsense, straightforward approach to nutrition and training and made the decision to work with him.
It was 6 months to my wedding and while I didn’t have an awful lot of weight to lose, I really wanted to tighten up and look the best I could without killing myself in the process! There were a lot of social events, parties and with Christmas falling right in the middle, I wanted to make sure I actually enjoyed the run up to the wedding, and not dread social events or turn into the cranky asshole I have been in the past when sticking to rigid food plans!
I learned a lot in the 6 months, never felt like I was on a diet, lost body fat, enjoyed the run up to the wedding, looked great, but most of all FELT great in my dress on the big day! Larry was fantastic all the way through, providing so much support, answering all my stupid questions and pretty much insisting I get regular massages! As a coach it is clear to see he has the client’s best interests at the core of his work, always putting health first and foremost.
My big day has now come and gone and I’m happy to say I have continued on eating the same as I have done with Larry and there was no crazy binges after the wedding. While there may have been a few too many pina coladas consumed on honeymoon, I know exactly what to do to get back on track and there is no dread here; no crazy cardio and no restriction. Again a testament to the style of coaching provided – it really is a lifestyle.

I had been following Larry Doyle 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. He gathered all the necessary information & we got the ball rolling. 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 had 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!
- Coaching with Larry 8 months
I started 1 on 1 coaching with Larry when 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. Working with Larry has simply been the best investment I have ever made for myself and my God has it been much more to me than any before and after transformation photo. It's the after, after photo that best sums up Larry's work. All you gotta do is follow the plan, it's as simple as that!
- Coaching with Larry 4 months
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 I 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 losing 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 it meant I never questioned anything. During the 4 months with I sustained a shoulder injury playing rugby, which he was able to work around, and ensure my progress wasn’t hindered whilst also giving me the tools to rehab the shoulder back to full strength, as well as helping fix numerous niggles if suffered with for a number of years
4 months with Larry has totally changed how I perceive the world of training and nutrition, more so than any degree or PT course has done for me in the past.
