What our 1-to-1 online clients say
Not only am I in the best shape I’ve ever been in but my mindset was completely changed, towards the way I view food, calories and training.
I honestly couldn’t recommend Larry enough. He’s changed my body and outlook surrounding health and fitness, massively. That much so, I just started another 12 weeks with him.
Do yourself a favour and get Larry as your coach. You won’t regret it”.
Id recommend larry to anyone in any stage of their journey with health and fitness . It’s been awesome .
And for the first-time last January I didn’t diet. I actually did the opposite and started increasing calories and put a lot of focus into my training ( & recovery) with the aim of increasing lean muscle.
Early Last year I went through an improvement phase- spending less time dieting, more time on higher calories and put my main focus on getting my body in a better position for the next time I dieted because by the end of the year previous I was running on empty!
If there’s one thing Larry has thought me it’s that there’s more to changing your body than dieting alone. There’s phases, reasons for each & each of those phases should complement the next. So, I trusted him 100% when he suggested we do a lean gain phase.
And for the first-time last January I didn’t diet. I actually did the opposite and started increasing calories and put a lot of focus into my training ( & recovery) with the aim of increasing lean muscle.
I got really strong and also had lots of flexibility with my diet which I definitely feel helped my relationship with food. I still ate well, fuelled training properly & focused on the basics to ensure recovery, digestion, energy & sleep were being supported.
I do well with being uncomfortable on low calories and high out put but this time I had to learn instead to get uncomfortable with seeing the scales going in the opposite direction, feeling a bit heavier, having to eat more food & not fitting as well into my clothes. And during that time Larry’s advice & reassurance each week and guidance from start to finish helped no end.
Those 18 weeks were short term but they definitely had long term benefits. The first being my next dieting phase was made far easier, I was in a better position to start & I was much more adherent to calories even when they got low. Without the physical and mental stress early in the year I was in a great position to get to where I wanted to be.
Then when my dieting phase was over I was able to maintain weight later in the year on higher calories which is something I also put effort into doing”.

Six months after working with Larry & I’m at 9.5% body fat, energy levels through the roof, mental clarity is sharp as a knife and feeling super.
I wanted a tangible goal and date, so I set myself the challenge of committing to a photoshoot in December 2021.
I knew that if I was going to achieve such a goal I would need the help of a coach. Larry’s approach to achieving high level fitness while also optimising general health was what appealed to me.
I can safely say that 5 years on, and at the age of 34, I have achieved the best physical fitness of my life all thanks to Larry’s help and guidance. When I started his coaching, I was at 18% body fat, energy levels were ok, mental clarity was ok, sleep was average, morning alertness was mostly groggy.
Six months after working with Larry & I’m at 9.5% body fat, energy levels through the roof, mental clarity is sharp as a knife, sleeping like a baby most nights, & I’m waking every morning without an alarm and feeling super.
Working with Larry has felt as much like an apprenticeship as it has coaching. I have learned tonnes & developed my knowledge of training and nutrition immensely.
If you are currently looking to take charge of your health then Larry is your guy. You’ve just got to commit, stay coachable, be willing to work hard, and prioritise recovery. And maybe don’t wait for a life threatening illness before you decide to fulfil your true potential!
Thanks Larry, for all your coaching and support .
Larry was also very clear from the word go that he would get me in shoot shape but wouldn’t do anything to compromise my health in the process
After my 20 week cut that still had me eating every single day, I started into a maintenance/lean gain phase and chatted to Larry about my photoshoot goals and we made a plan. At 12 weeks out I switched to 1.1 coaching for the purpose of the photoshoot. There was no such thing as meal plans and this was one of the main reasons I chose Larry as I knew myself anything too restrictive would send me down a path I didn’t wish to revisit. Larry was also very clear from the word go that he would get me in shoot shape but wouldn’t do anything to compromise my health in the process for the sake of losing an extra lb or two.
My food didn’t really change at all in the lead up to the shoot, the quantity just got smaller. I was still having the likes of shepards pie and chicken and pasta bake the week before and of course my purple snack and kinder There was also no excessive cardio. 10/12 weeks were completed with only resistance bands and a 20kg bodypump bar with the roads being my own source of cardio due to gym closures.
In making my weekly plan of action, Larry was very conscious of what I had on that week, work commitments, GAA training and matches, horse riding etc and make sure I was prioritising sleep, stress management, nutrition etc. He was also very good at talking me down from the “I won’t be lean enough” ledge when I was ready to throw the toys out of the pram
The photoshoot experience has been immensely educational and I have learned so much about myself.
I finished my 5 months having gone from 199lbs in jan to 173.2lbs and 12.1% body fat
Larry & I set the goal to fat loss & got to work. There was no massive calorie restrictions, no unrealistic exercise goals and most importantly no bull. As I was coaching classes on zoom my main resistance training was my 3 sessions a week, I had started running last year in lockdown and kept with it so I set a goal of 2 runs a week and to hit my steps goal of 10k a day. There was nothing sexy about it but if there is one thing I’ve learned from Larry above all is he has taught me the power of consistency! Ticking boxes day in day out and letting the weight look after itself.
After about 2 months in I got an offer to get some professional progress shots done at the beginning of June so after a chat with Larry I decided to go for it and we set our sites on getting in the best shape of my life and did we ever! I finished my 5 months having gone from 199lbs in jan to 173.2lbs and 12.1% body fat and while that’s amazing and I’m so proud the most important part I think is that from the start of Jan to 4th June when I got my pictures taken there is 24 weeks and in total I dropped 25.8lbs . In other words to get in the shape in my life I just had to consistently lose just over 1lb or 0.5kg a week, no massive drops or fads just long term sustainable fat loss where while I may not have always been able to eat everything I wanted there was nothing I couldn’t or didn’t eat. I had ice cream, I had cake, I had alcohol and yes bread! I couldn’t be more delighted with my results and more thankful to having the foresight to not hit the fuck it button and to stick with Larry, control the controllables and get shit done regardless of whether a room with 4 walls and weights was open or not. Thanks to Larry for making the process easier than I could have imagined.
My confidence and strength is in the best place they have ever been.
I think if Larry told me I’d be gaining 8 kilos and eating 3000 cals daily I would of ran a mile But here we are, confidence and strenght in the best place they have ever been. But its not just a matter of eating more, and that’s where I found the guidance fantastic. Digestion, rest, sleep, training with progressive overload always in mind, I could talk for days here. Its been far from an easy ride but its been worth it.
Something I’m so passionate about myself is removing the fear of these phases away from females, the extra food, getting comfortable not been comfortable and stepping outside that safety net. Hoping these pictures can show and inspire others to do the same and remind people that constant dieting is not how you build strenght, “tone up”, build glutes and overall muscle mass. Weight will go on, fat will go on, the food must be ate, thats all part of it.
Excited now to strip things back with a dieting phase over the next few weeks and see exactly what we have done. And I can confirm I am 100% in a far better place since starting this journey, thank you Larry.
Larrys knowledge and guidance is second to none, and its clear if you want to be the best you can be, you should be working with the best there is out there.
On the other hand getting calories in and being consistent was my weakness.
I contacted Larry in May of this strange year, and 31 weeks on we are still working together, gaining knowledge and insight, into what can now be described as a whole new appreciation for food, nutrition and lifestyle for me.
His clear approach is what I admired the most along with the continuous learning as we progressed.
We had weekly check in calls and frequent texts, and despite never meeting Larry and been over 7,000km apart it really has had no impact on the quality of the coaching.
The process without doubt takes discipline, and personally having a busy schedule – a full time job, husband, a fitness coach, GAA football player and chairman, along with frequent running and cycling sessions in the mix, I really appreciated all the knowledge Larry had to offer to balance my busy lifestyle, all the while making significant progress with my lean gain.
The journey so far has been superb and being accountable to an external source has been exactly what I needed to be consistent. This was what made my targets and goals become possible.
Larry’s knowledge, guidance and support has been such an investment for not only myself but also for my business so that I can help clients who need my support just as much as I need his.
Dieting for a photoshoot this year during lockdown was no easy task as I was transitioning to online coaching and also homeschooling. However, when Larry said we’ll have you ready I trusted that statement 100%!! We laid a solid foundation before starting so that I was in the best possible position starting the prep. Of course there were wobblers along the way and there were weeks where I had my doubts but with one sentence or question he had the ability to change my entire mindset to set me up for a more successful week. And he was true to his word- he got me there.
Larry’s knowledge, guidance and support has been such an investment for not only myself but also for my business so that I can help clients who need my support just as much as I need his. I could not recommend him or the service he provides highly enough. His professionalism, consistency, knowledge and experience is second to none & I’m very grateful to be able learn from him both personally and professionally each week.
With Larrys guidance I went from over 200lbs to now sitting at 165lbs, having completed my first marathon and photo shoot while following a vegan diet.
Under Larrys guidance I learned more than I ever thought I would about Training, food, sleep, mobility, a balanced lifestyle amongst so many other things and with this guidance I am now sitting at 165lbs, having completed my first Marathon and photo shoot.
I must add this was all done on a vegan diet (vegan since 15). I am not someone who pushes veganism, I only mention this for those who think it’s impossible to gain muscle, lose fat and run marathons on a vegan diet. It just takes a bit of research and willingness to learn a new way and I’d be lying if I said proving the people who said it’s impossible wrong, wasn’t a small driving force in this journey!.
Thank you Larry, thank you Kate, you’ve done more for me than I can begin to express! I’m very happy to be able to call Larry a friend!
In my opinion Larry sets the bar for everyone in the fitness industry
I see Larry as not just a coach but also a mentor & could not recommend him highly enough. The level of detail/knowledge/education he can provide is second to none, and even though I may roll my eyes & throw a strop from time to time, I am very proud to be under his wing.
I don’t only take his guidance on a personal development level but on a business level too, as a coach myself I have learned a lot from Larry & can not speak highly enough of the service he provides.
In my opinion Larry sets the bar for everyone in the fitness industry & unfortunately for him he won’t be getting rid of me any time soon
“I came away with a great understanding of macro-tracking and general nutrition – much more valuable than cookie-cutter diet plans!”
Over the two years I have been working with Larry he has stayed true to this philosophy – HEALTH comes first ALWAYS!!
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.
What made the difference was how invested Larry was in me as his client.
No restrictions, no fads, just real life advice and an infectious love for what they both do! Thanks guys!
Is this going to be YOU?
What will YOU be writing as your success story in 6 months time?
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!
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!
I’ve just finished my first 12 weeks with Larry, dropping 11kgs and to say I’m happy with the progress would be a massive understatement!
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 now feel like I can comfortably stay on track whatever my lifestyle throws at me.Counting macros gave me freedom to cook/eat/enjoy whatever foods I felt like.
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.
***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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 have been most impressed by Larrys genuine care for the health of his clients and his no BS approach.”
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!
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.
They made the whole experience of “cutting calories” enjoyable.
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.
I lost over 10kg, got way leaner but my main thing was my attitude toward food became normal.
I lost 12 kilos and I am now eating 2,500+ cals per day.
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!
Working with Larry has been a life changing 6 months, looking forward to continuing this journey with him.
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.
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
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.
I really cannot recommend Larry highly enough as he is an absolute knowledge bomb and is a true professional in his field.
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.
Larry has an unmatched ability to draw motivation and to instil belief.
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.
Signing up to be coached by Larry has probably been one of the best decisions I have made in my life so far
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.
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.
I now have more energy for life and along with all of that I’m more positive and happier too.
I can weigh myself and it doesn’t bother me its just a number not my value as a person.
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.
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.
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 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.
He’s a top class coach and goes above and beyond for his clients.
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.
