What our clients say
I am now 6 months training with Larry and 14kg down, and 6kg lower than my pre-pregnancy weight.
It’s great because any questions I had he was on the ball with his answers and got back to me quickly. I highly recommend the Affiliate program if you are looking for structure in your training, nutrition, with accountability and so many more add ons to read with great tips.
I am now 6 months training with Larry and 14kg down, and 6kg lower than my pre-pregnancy weight. For me joining the Affiliate wasn’t about losing weight quickly, I wanted structure and this was a bi-product of it.
It feels really good to look in the mirror and like what I see, it’s even better to feel as good as I do on the inside, that’s where the real transformation has happened.
March 2022 was when I got to the point where I thought…if I do nothing, nothing will change. I was solo parenting two kids, working a full time demanding job, had kids activities five times a week, add on everything at home and life admin…you get the picture…none of those things have changed…they’re all still my reality…but at the same time so, so much has changed!!
I came off our initial call excited…so excited to get started…all I could think of were the possibilities! I can honestly say I underestimated how transformative it would be.
I made a commitment to myself and I put in the work…but at the same time, it hasn’t felt like work. The one thing about Larry’s approach that’s made it all work so well for me I think is that it’s been built around my life so it’s something I can maintain now and into the future… and believe me when I tell you…I’ve tested it! Life has happened…nights out, PMS…more PMS, work trips, being unwell, making it to the gym three times some weeks and other weeks just the once!
All that being said I was surprised with how easy it’s been to get to this point, I can genuinely say I’ve really enjoyed the process – watching my shape change and taking in all the knowledge Larry’s shared along the way.
It feels really good to look in the mirror and like what I see, it’s even better to feel as good as I do on the inside, that’s where the real transformation has happened.
As investments go it’s been one of the better ones I’ve made in myself, in my well-being and in my future…and I’m not even done yet…watch this space!
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”.

I think as a mum it’s important to set very realistic and achievable goals; not to compare yourself to others, to feel healthy, strong and have the energy to chase after a toddler!
So in August (9 months post partum) I joined the affiliate as I wanted to do something that was flexible and slot into my routine and train while baby naps rather than waiting to go to a gym class in evenings. For the first month I trained consistently, then the following two months I had deadlines to meet for my college course. So something had to give as I couldn’t do everything, I had to take a step back from training, but instead of giving up completely I priortised family, course work, food 80% of the time, got some sort of daily movement such as a short walk and sleep. Last week I took a photo by chance I couldn’t believe the difference when I compared. I didn’t do any drastic dieting or intense exercising they were simple and realistic steps I took that worked for me. I tracked food at the beginning and I didn’t stress about it too much, it was purely just to see if I was getting enough calories in with breastfeeding and to match the active days, in fact I wasn’t so I upped my meal portions (yes more food!!!) I didn’t need to keep tracking after a few weeks as I could gauge how much food I needed.
What I love about the affiliate, Larry and Kate are so supportive on whatever is going on in your busy life they help make things work for you that is sustainable in the long term. I don’t feel like they are restrictive plans, it’s a very flexible approach to having a healthy and balanced lifestyle that is sustainable. I think as a mum it’s important to set very realistic and achievable goals; not to compare yourself to others, to feel healthy, strong and have the energy to chase after a toddler!
The Affiliate has really helped me to achieve my overall goal with developing a healthier perspective towards food.
The Affiliate has really helped me to achieve my overall goal with developing a healthier perspective towards food. Rather than under fuelling my body, through education and learning Larry and Kate have helped me to overcome these obstacles with my overall eating pattern.
This has been reinforced by an increase in my energy and performance both in and outside the gym! As a female, it can be intimidating to think about building muscle and eating more and it was for me in the beginning. However, feeling stronger, more energetic and all round brighter physically and mentally outweighed my fears and has become the most liberating feeling.
Building muscle and strength in my lower body has been the biggest challenge for me, reinforced with not properly fuelling my body for my workouts. I can now see a huge improvement in strength and muscle mass on areas that I couldn’t comprehend why I wasn’t seeing any change. It’s a work in progress and everyday I am learning but I can thank Larry for starting this path for me. He has taught me about my health holistically rather than just aesthetics.
I am excited to continue with Larry and building more muscle breaking down the barriers of what us as women as expected to look like and achieve what I thought I never could. I couldn’t recommend Larry and Kate more, what they understand is not one shoe size fits all. It is a person-centred approach and tailored to each individual’s needs.
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.
From working with Larry, I’m down 20lbs along with inches all over (8.5 on my waist alone), and I’m the healthiest and happiest I have been in years
My relationship with my body and food had gone to the dogs. From working with Larry I can positively say that has done a complete 180 and I’m the healthiest and happiest I have been in years. Larry’s no bull* approach to the fitness journey is amazing. No restrictions , no guilt tripping, just helpful , patient and real.
Roughly I’m down 20lbs along with inches all over (8.5 on my waist alone). The reason I say “roughly” is because I’ve stopped being scale obsessed which is amazing for me. As someone who has had an obsessive relationship with those bathroom scales for years this is huge. If I feel bloated or crappy I refuse to step on the scales , I purely go off how I feel in myself. By stepping on the scales when I feel crap and seeing I’m up a pound or two (probably from the big meal I ate the night before) I would instantly self sabotage and through it all in the bin. But now I no longer do that which is why this has been the steadiest health journey I’ve ever gone on.
Larry places an emphasis on being comfortable with the fact life happens , an ice cream on a sunny day or a meal out with friends isn’t going to instantly make you put back all the weight you have lost, and teaches you how to plan for this things and most importantly to enjoy yourself, which I love!
I can’t thank Larry enough for helping me get to where I am now. 100% it was me who got up each day meal prepped and went to the gym , but without him my attitude to everything would be crap. Aside from the weight I have lost, the biggest wins for me are that my self confidence is up , my happiness is huge & my mental health is the best it has been in a long time. No more emotional eating or guilt attached to food
The Affliate is just what I had been looking for, I have got a huge amount from it and I’m really really loving it so far!
The mindset change has been such a game changer. I am the WORST for thinking I missed a workout ok may as well just just start next week. Or I had a slice of bread start again tomorrow and then downward spiral when you do the same thing the next day. This mindset change has been friggin awesome actually and I can’t thank you enough. I mean it’s obvious but you do seem to get it across so well in those wonderful facebook motivational speeches!!!
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.
I’m 6 kgs down but most importantly for me is that after 36 years I have built a healthy relationship with food.
I had been following plans for the majority of time for over 5 year so I decided to join the Affiliate. From day 1 with there was no restrictions. I learned in small steps over weeks and months all about myself, learning to prioritise sleep, stress levels, my caffeine, movement and most importantly for me is that after 36 years I have built a healthy relationship with food. I now enjoy food guilt free. Since October have lost 6 kg and in this time Larry has increased my food 3 times. (In this time I have had takeaways and drank and made it through Christmas without making a pig of myself!) I’m eating more then ever now and energy is great. With the weekly check-in’s in the FB Group and feedback I have been able to stay on track and create a lifestyle that is sustainable with no magic pills and crash diets
The Affiliate has totally changed my view on exercise and nutrition and for the first time in my life I am completely mindful of what I am eating and making good choices without feeling like I’m missing out.

It’s the best money I’ve spent in the health and fitness “world”.
When I first saw posts from Larry in relation to the affiflate, I remember seeing “it’s the last diet plan” you will ever need… A huge statement in a world where diet culture is rife with fad diets and unsustainable programmes, “8 week shred” and every other plan imaginable. But in truth, the affiliate honestly is where the book stops. Don’t join to expect a spoon fed meal plan. There is no growth, sustainability or enjoyment there. What Larry and Kate offer via the affiliate is truth and genuine knowledge about food, macro nutrient guidance and the ability to build your diet to suit your own goals. This for me was massive. The guys are also excellent professionals in many ways – particularly when I opened up about struggles with emotional eating / binge restrict cycle. They were able to refer me to expert resources which worked hand in hand with the training and nutrition support they offered, daily.
The affiflate is so accesible, suitable for beginners who have never heard the term “macronutrient”, right up to fitness savy gym fanatics. Their online content, support groups, layout in general and Kates super handy and easy Instagram page where she features lots of gorgeous recipes are all brilliant. And most of all, realistic. If you put the time in, and follow the guidance, you will go from learning about my fitness pal and how to track, to learning how to eyeball food and truly understanding it, without feeling like a slave to tracking every morsel of food. I managed to get to this mindset in only 2 short months with these guys.
Larry and Kate have a great thing going with this affiliate and such good value.
I dropped 30lbs within 4 months of becoming a mom by following Larry’s guidance on the Affiliate
I dropped that very quickly then got pregnant shortly after, but stayed working out and eating healthy, gave birth to a very healthy baby and spent 6 months breastfeeding with no issue, dropped 30lbs within 4 months of becoming a mom, and changed my goals along the way.
I went from wanting to drop a dress size, to running 10k and going from squatting 8kg to now doing 55kg I eat takeaway most weekends and a few glasses of wine with zero restriction and no guilt, I still ask questions every week in Larrys Q and A and I’m not anywhere near done yet!
Old goal: drop a dress size.
New goal: knock 7 mins off my 10k run time, and squat and deadlift my own body weight with my main focus on health and fitness!!
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.
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 feel better in myself, happy with food and getting active again.
In a short period of 3 weeks I have lost 10 & 1/2 lbs. That might seem like a-lot or noting to some but to me it has changed my whole mindset, given me focus and now I’m determined to get to my goal with the help and support of Larry Kate and the Affiliate community
I learn at least one new thing every week and I have become a lot less stressed about food
Being part of the community means its not just me on my own doing this.
1. Accountability- it’s not just me on my own doing this. 2. Constant touchpoints- when I open Insta you’re there, Facebook- you’re there too…emails, oh there you are again… oh my tracker!! This has been huge for me to stay motivated and accountable. 3. Mixing it up with the foods. Its very tempting to get “samie” when dieting but again the insta gives me daily ideas.
The main result I have achieved? Treating my mind and body better. I have achieved peace by fighting binge eating off
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
“They are making my ‘lifestyle’ easy by making me accountable to myself”.
“I am a different person since starting, from my mental health to my confidence with food, training & my appearance is totally changed for the better & I couldn’t be happier.”
Then I began a cut for approx. 14/16 weeks to complete the shoot,which the guys both guided me through too. I cut back 14lbs in this space of time, being in a shape I would only have dreamed of ever being in, all while still enjoying my food and enjoying my training. Larry & Kate were both incredible during both phases always checked in with me & had no issues answering any questions I had for them.
Now, after having the best guidance over the past 1.5 years, I am currently not tracking as extensively as before, due to the phenomenal coaching from the guys and enjoying my training as much as ever – I would never have seen myself in the position I am today if it was not for Kate & Larry, if I could show my 18 year old self how easy and enjoyable it actually is. Larry and Kate’s knowledge & expertise are second to none and their dedication to their clients is incredible, I cannot recommend them or thank them enough!
“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 came away with a great understanding of macro-tracking and general nutrition – much more valuable than cookie-cutter diet plans!”
“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”
“Kate and Larry gave me the tools I needed to control my eating habits”
“The Affiliate is one of the best programs I have ever gotten involved with.”
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’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.
I’ve lost 3-4kg, hitting new PBs, I feel much stronger, and have more energy!
I am loving the training! I am down 4kg, down cm everywhere and really happy with my progress so far!
The Affiliate has allowed me to be comfortable with gaining weight. Eating more food doesn’t mean I’ll get fat!
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!
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.
I’ve lost over 4kg, but the change to my physique and confidence was a huge unexpected bonus!!
I’m currently sitting at 69kg which is my lowest weight in 7 years!
I have a more healthy relationship with how and what I eat, it’s no longer a diet but just what I enjoy.
Is this going to be YOU?
What will YOU be writing as your success story in 6 months time?
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.
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 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”
“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!!
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!!
“I have lost 2 kg , bringing me to my goal, and I couldn’t be happier!”
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!!
“I’ve upped my calories, upped my strength and found freedom!”
“The information provided in emails and on the Facebook group is incredible and really insightful”
“I’ve been delighted with the Affiliate program since joining a few months back”
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.
“Very early into the program I could start seeing my shape change & I’m thrilled”
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.
“I’m 5kg down in total since starting two months ago!”
“I feel fitter and stronger and more confident!”
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.
“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 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.
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!
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
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.
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.
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.
