I’ve been training for several years, and for the most part met my goals. The one I never could reach was getting my body fat as low as I’ve wanted to. After deciding on a new goal to compete in a Men’s Physique competition, I went looking for extra help.
I found Jon’s website and after doing some research I decided he could help. Over a period of several months, Jon worked with me to get my nutrition on track to compete at the end of May. Week to week he evaluated my progress, and made intelligent changes to my nutrition and cardio plan. By following the program, I was able to make constant progress towards my goal of stepping on stage. Partially due to my work and unforeseen circumstances, I wasn’t perfect. I had some setbacks and teeter-tottered a bit through my journey. Jon was very supportive and understanding of that, life happens after all. Jon promotes the dieting concept of If It Fits Your Macros (IIFYM) which is by far the most comfortable and pain free way to diet. The freedom to eat whatever you want, so long as you can budget for it, makes the process much easier mentally. He is also very knowledgeable on nutrition in general, and answered any questions I came up with along the way.
I was also able to work with Jon to improve my posing prior to my competition. He was very helpful and informative, since I had no previous posing instruction. By following his instruction, I made great improvements in a very short time. The day of my contest, Jon was quick to respond to the many text messages I sent. I had 1,000 questions surrounding the competition day, the tanning process, pre-show nutrition practices, on stage protocol, all of it. He adjusted my program in real time, based on pictures I sent him during the day. Overall the contest preparation was a positive experience and left me hungry to get back on stage.
As I said before, Jon is very knowledgeable, personable, and will certainly get you wherever you’re trying to go. To anyone thinking of competing, or just looking for some extra help reaching their health and fitness goals, I’d highly recommend Jon as a coach.
