What our clients say
It’s the best money I’ve spent in the health and fitness “world”.
I heard of the affiflate through a friend, She recommended it to me at a time when I couldn’t escape the” diet mentality” and my own “binge, restrict cycle”, despite my best efforts. I didn’t know what to expect but I definitely didn’t expect to learn, grow and achieve as much as I have with… the help and support of Larry and Kate and the amazing platform they have built via the Affiliate. 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 joined affiliate almost 3 years ago with the goal of dropping one dress size. 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!! Read more “I dropped 30lbs within 4 months of becoming a mom by following Larry’s guidance on the Affiliate”
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.
When I first started 1-1 coaching with Larry 18 months ago I wanted to get into better shape but he taught me something far more important than aesthetics – he taught me health!! We made simple changes to improve sleep, digestion, physical recovery and he brought my awareness to the importance of destressing daily which… all had such a positive impact on not only my physical health but my mental health also. 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’ve been an ongoing 1-1 client of Larrys for 9 months now & previous to that had been an Affiliate for about a year- it was definitely one of the best decisions I could have made. 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 Read more “In my opinion Larry sets the bar for everyone in the fitness industry”
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
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!

Being part of the community means its not just me on my own doing this.
The three biggest things for me: 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
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. Read more “The main result I have achieved? Treating my mind and body better.

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!!!!!

“They are making my ‘lifestyle’ easy by making me accountable to myself”.
I’m delighted I joined the Affiliate. It is such good value for money, with the content they both share on their own social media and our own Affiliate private group is brilliant – its informative and easy to read and understand. We receive a new training program every month, which I love as I dont… feel bored. It keeps me motivated. The information they provide guides you to whatever your goals are, without stress. I know they will always answer any questioms I may have. They put a lot of love and hard work into their content and work. Thanks guys for a great service!

“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.”
I started with the guys over 12 months ago on the Affiliate. I started mainly due to my previous lifestyle being a constant battle of over training, under eating leading to constant burn out & then binging & back to square one, I knew I had to get out of this vicious cycle. When I… started the guys thought me how to enjoy food & make delicious recipes, how to train efficiently and effectively with 4 days a week, the importance of sleep & the importance of recovery/downtime – the last two being something I wouldn’t even consider being relevant. I’d seen the benefits of this after just a few weeks, I knew I had made a solid choice. The guys then thought me the concept of a lean bulk (something I wouldn’t have dreamed of doing before), as I wanted to build strength & muscle – with future hope of doing a photoshoot. I completed this phase successfully over a 5-month period, gaining 12lbs. 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’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 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!

“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.

“Kate and Larry gave me the tools I needed to control my eating habits”
Fantastic Service !! A credit to both Larry and Kate. Joining the Affiliate has allowed me to gain control of my health and fitness journey. Kate and Larry gave me the tools I needed to control my eating habits, aswell as great workouts that helped me increase my strength and fitness with each session. Keep… up the great work!

“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! Read more ““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!
When joining the affiliate in August I was aware I had a lot of social events coming up so I wanted to maintain self control and be accountable for the food/exercises choices I was going to make. In October I moved to Australia and travelled for 6 weeks before settling in Melbourne where I’m currently… on the job hunt. A lot of stressors and uncontrollables within this time and without the Affiliate I would 100% have just hit the fuckit button and eaten everything in sight! Between Larry and Kate’s advice and the support of the Facebook Group I learned the tools I needed to stay on track. The Affiliate has given me self control – learning not to hit the fuck it button. Instead learning how to manage calorie intake throughout the week while still having the food I love.
I’m excited to go to the gym – before the programme my workouts were so monotonous, now with the workouts switching every 4 weeks it keeps it interesting and definitely challenging I now realise that weight loss isn’t simply diet and exercise alone – I’ve learned to factor in stress, sleep and recovery.

I’ve lost 3-4kg, hitting new PBs, I feel much stronger, and have more energy!
I’ve been a member now for 3 months and I’m absolutely loving it! Its exactly what I needed to give me the knowledge and confidence to go into the gym and smash a great workout. My nutrition has improved and Ive added loads more vegetables and fruit to my meals. Knowing the macros is a… great help. Ive always been a good sleeper anyway but Im making an effort to have a better night time routine, less phone activity, dimmed lights etc. It’s a superb service you provide and I’m so grateful for it! Read more “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!
I have really enjoyed my time so far. I have done 12 week programs before and got good results, but because I was checking in weekly I would find myself becoming obsessive and getting upset if I slipped up with food or missed a training session, where as the affiliate has taught me about taking… responsibility and moving on, and enjoying the process! I think it is really good value for money considering its a new program every month and lots of tips/recipes/q&a’s etc! I recently squat 70kg for 5×5, bench pressed 30kg (this is a big thing for me as this was never a good lift for me). I’m not too hard on myself if i make a bad food choice or miss a couple of gym sessions for whatever reason. I find not checking in with weight/measurements weekly puts less pressure on me. I do it every couple of weeks for myself and am delighted with the results so far! Read more “I am loving the training! I am down 4kg, down cm everywhere and really happy with my progress so far!”
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!!
After my first season competing as a bikini athlete, I knew I needed to find myself a new coach. I wanted someone who would view me as an individual and not just a generic “bikini chick.” I had heard only positive reports about Larry and so I reached out for help. The first thing that… Larry made clear was that competing in a show would not happen, unless my body and mind was in a healthy place to do so. Larry is not just concerned with getting me lean for stage – anyone could do that. He sees the bigger picture and the coaching Larry provides goes way beyond nutritional and training advice. I don’t think I could ever fully put in to words what he has done for me. His knowledge and expertise is second to none but this is only complimented by the care and dedication Larry shows to each and every one of his clients. Under his guidance, in 2019 I became Miss Bikini Ireland and in 2020 will take to the International Stage. I am proud to be an athlete of Larry Doyle Coaching.

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!
Started at 78kg in March 2019. I definitely haven’t been perfect, just consistent. I’d say to anyone thinking of investing in themselves is go for it! The pic of me now does not reflect 9 months of perfection – I f*cked up many times over. The difference was that I was accountable and consistent, so when… I did f*ck up I accepted it and moved onto planning the next meal or session. I never waited for a Monday or for January, the time is now whenever that is. Read more “I’m currently sitting at 69kg which is my lowest weight in 7 years!”
I 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! Read more “I have a more healthy relationship with how and what I eat, it’s no longer a diet but just what I enjoy.”
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.
I initially joined for the monthly training programme but its made me think of so much more other than just what I do in the gym. I have no problem with exercise, if anything I over-train as gym / running / classes are a habit and I love training, its everything else that needs my… attention. Nutrition wise I eat a lot – I am active so it was a question of me factoring in more veg and fruit which I have done really well and also focusing more on protein. The wheels of digestion have never been so good, at least once, sometimes twice a day. I eat SO much more veg and now miss it when I don’t have it along with fruit (those evil sugar carbs lol) and this I feel is a healthy way to be.The tracker sheet is invaluable – I love it and it prompts me to loook at previous weeks to see what i was doing more / less of etc. I’m going into Christmas and 2020 with a better mindset – this is long-term and these changes I’m gradually making will be life long habits and I am 100% on board with it. Hopefully next year I’ll lose a few pounds but its not my life’s mission at the moment – health is wealth.

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 made the decision to work with a coach there was no doubt in my mind who I wanted it to be. Larry’s expertise, experience and knowledge in the field drew me to him. Achieving incredible results while maintaining health and client focused values, in an industry where that is often neglected for the… sake of a before and after, shows just how incredible a coach he really is. When I decided to take the leap into competition last January I was initially scared but Larry made my first prep the most enjoyable and worthwhile experience I’ve ever had. The amount of guidance Larry provided throughout what can be a very stressful time made it far less daunting and his understanding of the human body and competitors mentality meant he could provide the best support. Larry got me into a condition and shape I never thought possible while helping me become the strongest I have ever been! Read more “Larry has instilled a belief that I can do whatever I set my mind to! Like all of his clients I am so lucky to have him!”
I 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.
I have spent the past year working one to one with Larry and it has been absolutely amazing. I have advanced so far, not only physically and mentally – but in so many other aspects also. When I started with Larry I had just finished an extremely intense diet period. I was desperate to get… my body into ‘the best shape ever possible’. Literally only focusing on what I was seeing in the mirror. I was on really low calories and doing hours and hours of cardio. I was totally and utterly, fully absorbed and completely obsessed. I was seeing results (obviously). But I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t healthy. I had developed such a poor relationship with food. This lifestyle was having an impact on so many aspects of my life, my social life, my relationships, my relationship with myself and my relationship with food. Needless to say, following such a restrictive plan took its toll – I was no longer enjoying the process, enjoying my food or even appreciating my results. I felt like there had to be a better approach. Thats when I reached out to Larry. Larry understood where I was coming from when I filled him in on what was going on. I signed up and got started. Larry maintained consistent contact while I was starting off. Offering encouragement, advice, guidance and support. The focus of check ins quickly shifted from focusing on weight and measurements, to the main priorities being general health and well being, water intake, digestion, activity, stress levels as well as enjoyment in and out of the gym. Reminding me of the much bigger picture. I soon got to learn the importance of the foundations. Diet:
***I am using the above word for lack of better term! There is certainly no ‘diet’ when working with Larry. No food groups cut out, no foods off limits. The food side of it is so person specific. I had been following a meal plan previously. Which included maybe… ten foods… The same foods, every meal, every day. I felt, personally, that this really had an impact on my relationship with foods. I used to LOVE cooking and baking. I used to really enjoy my food, I was such a foodie. Over that restrictive period I genuinely found myself becoming somewhat afraid of foods. Larry thought me how to count my macro nutrients and I can safely say I have never looked back. During the initial period with Larry he helped me work on my relationship with food. Teaching me and encouraging me, that no foods were bad. I soon learned how important nutrition was, how important it was to fuel our bodies. And soon after that I rekindled that love I had for food and cooking. Counting macros gave me freedom to cook/eat/enjoy whatever foods I felt like. Now the most important thing I learned about diet with Larry was how to eat like an adult. How to fit in meals. How to actually fuel my body. How to enjoy a bit of whatever I liked. How to factor In whatever was going on in my life. How to eat out at social occasions, how to eat on the go in a busy lifestyle and how to manage when you get caught out. I now feel like I can comfortably stay on track whatever my lifestyle throws at me. Im not missing out, I’m managing things and being smart. Fitness:
As I mentioned earlier, when I started with Larry I had just finished an intense low calorie, high output phase. My energy levels were diminished and my strength was in my boots. A couple of weeks in and my energy levels were through the roof. My cardio was probably about a quarter what it used to be – HOWEVER, it was so much smarter. It was genuine cardio, focusing on heart rate and effort. Previously I was just looking at getting X amount of time done on cardio equipment. Thats when I realised I really wasn’t as fit as I thought! I was struggling to reach my target heart rate for the given time. Just last week I ran 8.5KM in a personal best time. Yesterday I was on the treadmill running and it just felt effortless – I couldn’t run fast enough to get my heart rate up into my heart rate zone! Such an opposite complaint to what I had starting off. My strength is also way up again, even beyond what it used to be. I am definitely the fittest and strongest I have ever been. Health:
Over the past couple of years my resting heart rate had always been on the higher end of normal. Maybe late seventy’s, early eighties. As I started to progress with Larry, making little wins in every aspect – I really noticed this starting to drop. It settled into the sixties and I was delighted, felt amazing. Lately, I’ve noticed it dropping down as far as fifty four. This is not only fitness and health related, there are so many other attributing factors that I learned about along the way. I have always had really poor gut health – I even have memories of it as a child. I had gotten used to it really and wasn’t taking any notice of it. Then I started with Larry and he immediately flagged it, highlighting it as a major priority. It needed to be sorted. As he said himself, I could be dieting all year round and doing excessive amounts of cardio – but when the foundations are off, you are swimming against the current. And it proved to be so true. I got medical advice and was put on a strict elimination diet. At the time I worried about how it would effect my work with Larry, or my progress. Needless to say it was not a problem. Larry was so supportive and a wealth of knowledge. The freedom of following a macro plan rather than a diet plan made it so possible. A year on and I don’t even know myself. I am now aware of what foods I need to avoid and why. In every check in Larry had focus on this aspect, because it was so specific to me. My plan was always tailored to suit me perfectly. Lifestyle:
Without a shadow of a doubt I’ve a hectic lifestyle. I work a full time job, forty hours a week, chaotic work conditions and high stress levels. I do shift work. Go from nights to days as required. Ive always loved fitness and exercise, its always been my outlet. So I have to say, I’ve always made time for it. Training with Larry, I was definitely spending less time in the gym, because I was training so much smarter than before. Quality over quantity. Larry is a big fan of stress management (I thought you were crazy when I started Lar, sorry lol). And I have to admit it took me awhile to see why. Larry was constantly encouraging me to do some ‘least mode’ every single day, preferably something outside the gym. I went with it (probably reluctantly at the start! Thinking I didn’t have time) I started factoring in short periods. Reading a few pages of a book. I downloaded the headspace app. Going for a light walk outside. I rated my stress on my tracker every day. I started to see patterns of when I was scoring my stress high, my weight would spike, my general health would suffer. Larry encouraged me to not take on too much. Less can be more. When my work schedule was hectic, or my shifts changed to nights, the first protocol was to pull back. Pull back from intense training. Increase least mode. Listen to my body, be kind to myself. I would have always just ploughed on and burnt myself out. But when I took a step back I soon came to realise that my results were so much more consistent and sustainable. It took me awhile to realise, but the likes of stress, mindset, lifestyle, water, digestion and general day to day activity – the foundations – are nearly more important than the training and the calories. You can’t build a house without foundations. Put in the ground work, give yourself the time, invest in yourself and you will reap the rewards. There is no need for hours upon hours in the gym, low calories, or any of the other mad measures. I spent years following the above and in one year training with Larry I’ve learned more, had better returns in every department and best of all discovered to manage it all.

Larry has helped bring the spark back into my life as I now have the confidence in my own body to be the best version of myself.
I joined Larry’s 1-1 coaching in October 2018 after getting myself in a long term rut of cutting calories during the week and then binging at weekends. I had previously worked with online coaches for 12 week periods before and although I got results – as in the scales went down, I never actually got… to the root of my problem. Larry’s coaching had come recommended by a friend who had used his programme before and had said that he was not like any other online coaches. I was a little apprehensive that I was going down the same 1-1 coaching root as before but I couldn’t have been further from the truth. Larry’s initial screening form was extremely in-depth, literally he wanted to know everything about my lifestyle, training routine, sleep and digestion – I knew from that point I was on to a winner. He wanted to know my long term goals, my aspirations working with him and from the outset I knew this time it wasn’t to lose weight it was to change my relationship with food and to fuel my performance in both Boxing and CrossFit. As the months ticked on my weight continued to creep down, my body shape was changing and my fitness was increasingly improving. I felt great! However my biggest change was in my mindset and this is where I literally owe everything to Larry. I had good days and I had bad days. Things happened in my life that didn’t go to plan. I had rough times in work, family sickness and a lot of other crazy things thrown in for good measure but through Larry’s coaching and supportive attitude I never let these negativity’s or challenge’s affect my eating habits which I would have done so before (Emotional eater). Larry over the last 10 months has become a confident to me and we have literally never met! Not only has he helped me achieve my goals but he has been an ear to my worries, my doubts and my bumps in the road. I feel absolutely great and I am extremely excited to move to the Affiliate. I have lost 6 kilos, 15 inches all over and all the while gaining muscle – my body is in the best shape it’s ever been and my training has never been better. I am fuelling my body correctly to move faster and lift heavier in workouts, I am continuously getting new PB’s or small wins in weaknesses and the best of all is, there is not one day that I feel I have been hard done by, by following a ‘diet’. I allow myself my treats, I go out for dinner and I occasionally drink! What more could you ask for!
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Larry and Kate and build up a rapport across the internet that feels like he’s right there with me as I check-in on a Tuesday morning. I believe I now have the knowledge and confidence to go it alone with the support of the Affiliate, knowing that if I have any issues I would have the support and guidance immediately if needed.
Thankyou so much for everything you have done for me! I will never be able to sing your praises high enough. Read more “Larry has helped bring the spark back into my life as I now have the confidence in my own body to be the best version of myself.”
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 started working with Larry on a 1 to 1 basis back in February 2019, ahead of my wedding which was in August. I didn’t have a lot of weight to lose, but wanted to ‘tone up’ especially around my mid-section as my wedding dress was very fitted, all whilst remaining primarily focused on my… overall health- something which Larry placed paramount importance on throughout. Throughout my 6 months of coaching with Larry, I learned the importance of consistency and that no drastic measures were needed to achieve the look that I had in mind. I enjoyed plenty of nights out and social occasions along the way and Larry was always there to reassure me and help work these events into my week when needed. Larry placed a huge emphasis on downtime, sleep and digestion- which for me is the most important thing I can take away from the entire coaching experience. Working long hours, getting in training sessions and planning a wedding at the same time came with its fair share of stress- and downtime is something which I have massively neglected in the past which in turn affected my digestion and caused all sorts of stomach issues. I worked with Larry to put measures in place to overcome those issues and after that everything else fell into place. I achieved the results I wanted whilst changing very little in terms of training and nutrition throughout the 6 month period, and improved the overall quality of my life in the process. I cannot thank Larry and Kate enough for their help and support throughout- they have simply been amazing! I am looking forward to continuing my Affiliate journey with them now that my goal has been met and the wedding is over and have learnt many life lessons that I will continue to implement for years to come.

“Ive lost about 5kg (88 to 83kg) the lowest I’ve been in 2 years all down to applying everything I’ve learned through the Affliate!!
I started the programme with lower back discomfort, 3 months into the Affiliate and I have gone from barely being able to do a body weight box squat to being able to squat up to 50kg and pulling back if I feel I’m overdoing it – another thing I’ve learned…go at my own pace and… listen to my body!! The training videos & fb tips have been BRILLIANT helping me to lift properly/safely. The plan isnt tailered to me specifically but it incorporates all muscle groups and has strengthed my back and core to the point I am no longer in constant pain, I don’t fear the gym anymore and feel empowered! I’ve learned to tailor meals/snacks to my needs and likes and not to sweat the small stuff- don’t get me wrong i still have chocolate etc every day but it doesnt turn into an entire packet of biscuits- they are tracked, managed and fall within the daily calories! I’m very impressed with my results considering I have a full time job, am doing a masters alongside a post grad h.dip (exams, assessments and assignments). I have greater clarity and focus in work & study/college – health body = health mind. Absolutely loving the programme!! Read more ““Ive lost about 5kg (88 to 83kg) the lowest I’ve been in 2 years all down to applying everything I’ve learned through the Affliate!!”
“I 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!”
I’m no longer scared to eat, I now eat to fuel my sessions. I’ve found food freedom and stopped obsessively counting macros. I have so much more structure in my gym sessions and no longer spend time killing myself, I get in and get it done. I now know how to balance a night out… and not ruin my progress, I’m so much happier in myself and feel like a normal 22 year old. This would not have been possible without you guys and I am so thankful. Keep doing what you’re doing!!? Read more ““I’ve upped my calories, upped my strength and found freedom!””
“The information provided in emails and on the Facebook group is incredible and really insightful”
The programming is fantastic, there is great variety and I come away from sessions feeling like I’ve worked hard. Through the guidance of the program and Facebook group, I haven’t felt guilty about not getting to the gym much in June. I went to Spain for 5 days of sunshine (where I did train twice… but was limited by equipment available) but the bigger adventure, which I believe the previous 3 months of Affliate training helped me with, was climbing and summiting Mount Kilimanjaro last week!! An amazing experience and my legs definitely appreciated all the lunges I’d done in the lead of to this trip! I’m really looking forward to just picking up v1.4 once I return home, get back into routine and start training consistently again.

“I’ve been delighted with the Affiliate program since joining a few months back”
The three biggest takeaways for me: 1. Reducing my overall training load – I’ve gone from feeling like I need to go to work out 5-6 times a week (each time doing a session with some form of high intensity work), to doing 4 solid, tough sessions a week. 2. Feeling comfortable in the weights… room of a gym because I have a kick-ass programme that is easy to understand, follow and ensure I’m working hard. 3. Facebook group and getting more insight into recovery and the benefit of getting out into nature and just enjoying life outside the gym while still making good choices.

“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!”
At the beginning I was up and down 1kg but in the past month I’ve lost 4kg consistently and I’m excited to eat well every day. My goal is to get down to 68kg by August (I haven’t been sub-70 in over 6 years!) The Affiliate has provided me with the tools I need to… achieve my goals, as before starting I was a bit lost and in denial about how my own decisions were impacting my progress so thanks guys! Worth every cent!! Read more ““I’m 5kg down in total since starting two months ago!””
“I 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’m going into my forth month on the Affiliate and over the last three months my strength has gone up and my relationship with food has really improved. I don’t have guilt associated with eating certain types of foods and my digestion has drastically increased thanks to all the tips from Larry and Kate. In… the gym, I feel more confident having my plan each month. I’ve learned more with regards to tempo and quality and it has made such a difference to my body. I’m so happy I signed up its so much more than just a gym plan. I feel less pressure and more confidence going into the gym. I have my plan I know what I’m doing going in and I have the Vimeo videos when I’m not sure how to do something (honestly the videos give me so much confidence) I feel I’m more accountable in my food choices but I don’t feel the pressure if I eat a bar of chocolate I’ve failed. Been with a coach in the past that included a strict meal plan and weekly check ins I had a guilt associated with food if I ate off the plan. Now, I make the best choices I can everyday and if I want some apple tart in my nanny’s house I’ll have it!! I’m only accountable to myself and I really feel its made a big difference in my attitude towards food.

They made the whole experience of “cutting calories” enjoyable.
As a coach myself I began 1-1 online coaching with Larry in hope to learn as much as I could while stepping into the shoes of a client for once. I had a goal to get as lean as possible in 6 months but slow and steady for a holiday. No question was too big… for Larry and his knowledge is second to none. I went to Larry to learn about nutrition yet I have been opened up to so much more, the importance of sleep, stress management etc. and have realised how much they play a role in “getting lean”. I encountered a back injury and was frustrated for many weeks yet not once did Larry seem worried, it was all worked around and we made constant progress.
I ate more like an adult with no restrictions and consistently trained and the results came. Little does Kate know she is also a fantastic role model and together they make a solid team! They made the whole experience of “cutting calories” enjoyable. I didn’t even know that could be possible and I can’t thank them enough. Read more “They made the whole experience of “cutting calories” enjoyable.”
I lost over 10kg, got way leaner but my main thing was my attitude toward food became normal.
Before Larry, I had a terrible binge eating problem, where I would indulge in 10,000 calories at least daily through chocolate and sweets easily and then I would feel awful for days but the cycle continued binge, say that’s it no more then repeat. Literally had no control! Over the 30 weeks, I ended up… achieving my goals and more. I feel myself again and rediscovered my love for training. I enjoyed eating out and more normal food whilst achieving goals. Larry enabled me to gain a healthy relationship with food which was the ultimate goal! I do not have any will to binge anymore and I can understand my body more and now can understand what is hunger and what is emotional/ boredom eating. Alongside helping me create a long term healthier relationship with food I also achieved a lot of fitness goals. I ran a Spartan race, Tough Mudder and did a fitness competition whilst losing weight/ bodyfat and feeling awesome. I also work part-time and have college full time so Larry has been very accommodative and worked with me to help me manage life with all training and food! Despite my v busy life, we still hit PRs nearly weekly. Larry has been such a major help in 2018 to me, guided me through the struggles and coached me to reach all my goals.

I lost 12 kilos and I am now eating 2,500+ cals per day.
I reached out to Larry in March 2018. I had been with a PT for over a year, tried every diet there was. I thought being with a PT I would achieve results I wanted. I was paying through the roof, they didn’t show up for sessions, and didn’t give me tools I needed, so… I basically threw my money away. When I got in touch with Lar, there was no harsh sale. He asked me what my goals were, fat loss of course. Not only have I lost 12 kilos, I have learned so much more. I sleep at least 8-9 hours per night, I learned to chew my food, resulting in better digestion. My stress levels are very low, I very rarely stress. I learned to take time out for myself and took up reading to now I cannot put a book down. My training has improved so much better, I am stronger than ever. I became an adult about food choices, I made myself accountable for every choice I made weather it was good or bad! At 1st I was afraid to eat all the food but I had to trust Lar. I have had holidays, night out, big events, and Christmas. I used the tools Lar gave me to be adult about it so I made the better choices. I have had bad days but I didn’t beat myself up as I would have before, I take responsibility for my actions and move on. As everyone I’m very busy I’m a mother of 2 and I also work. The choices I make now are life long for myself and my family. Last week Lar recommended I move to affiliate coaching as he thought that was best for me, as he always does puts his clients 1st and not his pocket! I’ve enjoyed every minute with Lar and Kate, I love watching their posts especially Kate as a girl it’s easy to relate to her stories! They are both an awesome, honest and hardworking team and deserve all the success in the future! Would I recommend this team absolutely! I’m a hairdresser who builds relationships with their clients on a daily basis just like Lar and Kate and I’m telling the 40+ clients a week about them along with everyone I know! Thank you both for everything. I look forward to continuing to work with you, and wish you both all the success you deserve! Read more “I lost 12 kilos and I am now eating 2,500+ cals per day.”
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 had been following Larry on Social Media for a while & loved reading his content. It was factual & straight to the point, hitting some home truths! In November 2017, I contacted Larry to enquire about online coaching but at the time, he had no spaces available, which I think speaks for itself. A… spot on his programme became available early 2018 & I began 1:1 online coaching with him from January. Larry has years of experience in the fitness industry & is a wealth of knowledge so I was excited to get started. Over the last 6 months, I have learnt so much from Larry & he guided me through prep for a holiday, where I hit the beach feeling & looking good but most importantly, I felt confident in my own skin. Programmes are set, check ins done, responses are quick & adjustments made where necessary. He is fantastic & I feel lucky & privileged to be working with him as a coach. I am really looking forward to working with him in the future & seeing what can be achieved!

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.
When I started coaching with Larry I was at a very low point in my life. I had done my research and knew this was an investment I needed to make for me, and my mental health and I haven’t looked back since. Quite simply working with Larry has changed my life ten fold. When… I reached out to him, I had lost all love and motivation for training, had developed a severe bad relationship with food and comfort eating and a strong sense of disgust for myself and my body and couldn’t see a way out of it. If you are looking for a quick fix however, Larry is not your man. Instead, we addressed all possible issues and factors that would contribute to giving me the best quality of life and health benefits possible and ensure that the results would be long term and more beneficial to me than just a quick before and after transformation photo. His support is second to none, period. From the very get go he made it extremely clear to me that he cared very much about me and taking interest in every little detail I would tell him or concern I had. A few months later I genuinely can’t quite believe how far I have came under Larry’s guidance, and just how much my confidence, quality of life, health, attitude, mindset, relationship with food and passion for training have all improved since we began together. It’s the after, after photo that best sums up Larry’s work. All you got to do is follow the plan, it’s as simple as that!

I now have more energy for life and along with all of that I’m more positive and happier too.
I have been working with Larry the past 15 weeks and I honestly couldn’t be happier with my results so far – I was going through a stressful time in my life and felt I needed a bit of help with my nutrition and training – my goal was to drop some body fat and… get leaner, which I did but also along the way Larry helped me work on my mindset, my sleep, my daily habits and basically my outlook on life, along with my fitness and eating habits. With weekly check ins with Larry, he was also always on hand with any questions or dilemmas I had throughout the weeks and I always got a prompt reply – I got stronger, got leaner, never ever felt deprived of anything, I was actually eating more food which meant I felt I could socialise more without sacrificing my goals. The best thing I did last year was put my trust in Larry, I couldn’t recommend him enough as a coach if your looking to get in shape, want somebody that has all the knowledge and is genuinely interested in your goals and wants to help you reach them in the best possible way!

I can weigh myself and it doesn’t bother me its just a number not my value as a person.
Before I started training under Larry I was lacking in confidence both inside and outside of the gym, restrictive around certain food groups and terrified by the number on the scales. I wanted an online coach as I felt I wasn’t getting the most out of my training and at times a little lost From… the get go Larry has continued to encourage me to challenge myself. Any goals I had he helped me break down exactly how I was going to achieve them. He has not only helped me to increase my physical strength/ appearance but he has helped me mentally. I now realise no one-food group is the enemy . If you are looking for short term fixes/ crash diets and extreme training plans, Larry is not the right coach for you. If you are looking for a coach who is invested in giving you the time and helping you achieve long term sustainable lifestyle changes I couldn’t recommend Larry enough.

He’s a top class coach and goes above and beyond for his clients.
I approached Larry for the typical lose body fat and to ‘tone’ etc but what I got in return was so much more, yes my body composition changed dramatically. Could I be happier with my appearance…of course us ladies are never happy with some body part!! Coming from a powerlifting background my training changed and… I loved it, a tailored programme to suit me and my needs. Larry shared his expert tips and advice made it life long coaching instead of short quick fixes like I see with many ‘PT’s’ . Especially with nutrition he has taught me its not a diet, its a lifestyle and how to include everything into my eating so I didn’t end up binging. I have never ate as much especially CARBS haha! Larry has taught me so many things on a different level mentally and physically. I have become a lot more confident in myself. He has helped me out with his words of wisdom on how to deal with day to day stresses and has shown me how these affect my body.
