“Amazing experience with a much healthier outlook on not seeing any food as good or bad and no more binging because I’m full!!”

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 have a much better relationship with foods, especially carbs.”

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.”

“I definitely have a better relationship with food and I am not afraid to eat more than 1,500 calories a day!

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.”

“I can’t thank them enough for their help over the past year not just changing me physically however helping to change my own mentality”

When I first joined I had some bad food habits that I needed to overcome . I lacked motivation to go training as I was stuck in such a rut with the same old routine. Kate and Larry helped me overcome my issues in several ways, the main one was a new program every month which kept me motivated, I wasn’t killing myself with tones of cardio and I began to feel “healthy” in my body and head. I would never call the provided program to a “diet” , its more intuitive eating in order to make healthy choices, your given your macros in food and get more bang for your book by eating all the veg ( which should never be tracked !!!) and top that with whatever you fancy from your macros . You want dark chocolate thats fine its got some good fats .. but you track. The simplistic no bull approach is why they are becoming so well known in the fitness business. I can’t thank them enough.

“The Affiliate is one of the best programs I have ever gotten involved with.”

These guys are amazing! They give so much content for you. Coming from over training and binge eating to be able to train 3 to 4 days a week and eat a tone of good nutritious foods and all the nice things also in moderation and still progress and get results. There there for you always. It’s worth every penny!

I learn at least one new thing every week and I have become a lot less stressed about food

I experience very little guilt around food now and has come from the knowledge and guidance of Larry & Kate . I know how to fuel my body & I now understand I have control over my choices and to not let food control me.  I train max 4 times in a week, but right now its 3! I used to be so stressed about not training everyday but I see the rewards in active rest and recovery and I’m able to kill sessions as my body is recovered. I have been with the affiliate now since Sept 2018, taking a short break over summer 2019 due to travels, but I continued to follow the workouts when I could. Its been the best investment I’ve ever made and continues to be. I have achieved my own goals (various ones) throughout my time in the affiliate programme. I played my most powerful football (county level) and I learned so much about how to rest my body correctly and also the lifestyle factors that can hinder progress. I absolutely love receiving the email at the start of each month! Ye (Larry and Kate) will never know the true gratitude I have for ye, ye have changed so much of my outlook, & I am so glad ye are the coaches ye are. Thank you!

The main result I have achieved? Treating my mind and body better. I have achieved peace by fighting binge eating off

The biggest thing for me has been learning to eat without shame or guilt and been able to deal with food without feeling bad emotions towards it. Also the exercises I’m extremely grateful for your creativity during this rough time in lockdown we are all facing. I am constantly learning from Macro Management and its application in life, the approach yourself and Kate have towards life, which has given me a new way of seeing things. I actually focus more on least mode now than anything. I’ve been maintaining or losing weight and the slow application of exercises to my daily routine has made me more determined to continue, while working around injury. I realized its all a state of mind. And you guys influenced on that so much, I couldn’t be more thankful.  The Affiliate should be the basics for everyone to learn how to be healthy but be healthy in peace.

“The knowledge and support I’ve received as a long term member of the Affiliate has enabled me to improve my relationship with food.”

I’ve learned so much in the last two years since joining the Affiliate. Dealing with the usual ups and downs of life. I’ve been guided by Larry and Kate in how to approach wellness no matter the circumstances. Goals change, as life can throw us curveballs. I started this journey with losing some belly fat in mind. I learned how to lose some fat. I also learned how to perform exercises correctly and efficiently. But the most valuable lesson of all was I learned how to approach my wellbeing with a calm confidence. Personally I really needed this as I had struggled for years. Never understanding the emotional impact my eating habits we’re having on me. Every problem I’ve had there has always been a solution either from Larry, Kate or within the group. Even now in these unusual circumstances, the sense of togetherness in the group is strong. I’m grateful to be a part of it, now more than ever.

I have a more healthy relationship with how and what I eat, it’s no longer a diet but just what I enjoy.

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!

“Now I find I don’t stress about food at all. I’m eating more than ever and I love it.”

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.”

“I came away with a great understanding of macro-tracking and general nutrition – much more valuable than cookie-cutter diet plans!”

 ‘I came to Larry wanting to get in shape for my upcoming wedding and to look as good as I possibly could in my wedding dress. I am incredibly happy with the results! Larry and Kate put such a huge emphasis on health and general well-being – I learned so much about the importance of stress management, sleep, digestion and their effects on the body. Larry went above and beyond to assist me and help to educate me whenever I had any queries or questions along the way. I came away with a great understanding of macro-tracking and general nutrition – much more valuable than cookie-cutter diet plans! This form of learning has given me the confidence to be able to track food accurately and it is a great skill to have. If you are contemplating coaching, whether one-to-one or Affiliate, I would highly recommend Larry and Kate!

“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 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.”

I joined up with Larry and kate as I wanted more of a life style change, and you have taught me loads about food,sleep stress and your environment

I did crossfit training before going the Affiliate, I moved to new gym to try something different commercial gym & needed a training program needed and structure then lockdown happen 😔 but the homeworkouts are actually brilliant I am learning loads about reps,tempo etc and thinking of the muscle. It is making me slow down alot on the movements as with crossfit it can be alot of fast going 🤣 Also started off sometime in April I was around 65.3kg so now my 63.2kg  and food is really high veggies are high too ! Love kates veggie soup to is like another meal yayyyy  I joined up with Larry and kate as I wanted more of a life style change like it might sound dramatic but when have prepped for a few photoshoots sometimes it hard to switch off the side of my brain so ye have taught me loads about food, sleep stress and your environment and I’m sure there will be loads more to learn. Being consistent but if over eat or what not that to pull it back that it will always balance out at the end and CHEW YOUR FOOD!!!!!

“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 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!”
