Daniel joined up the 8 Weeks to Lean program as he wanted some fresh ideas on nutrition for fat loss while developing his strength.

Frustratingly, after the first week, the UK lockdown was enforced and Dan was only able to train with bodyweight and a resistance band.  Although this can, and did, result in the fat loss side of things, it did limit the areas of strength that he wanted to work on (barbell and dumbbell exercises. 

    Despite this, he was able to develop and understanding and improvement of his bodyweight strength and mobility.  Not allowing the limitations to get his down, he instead embraced them and continued on with using the knowledge, support, and guidance, from the program and myself (Roy) to progress as best as he could.
    At the end of the 8 weeks, Daniel was able to remain at 79kg, losing body fat while retaining–and building in some areas–lean muscle, resulting in a successful body-recomposition phase.

    I signed up to the 8 weeks to lean programme after a great review from my sister. I desperately wanted to lose weight/fat as I hated how I looked in the mirror and didn’t have a very positive opinion about myself. 

     “I honestly can’t believe the progress i’ve made in 8 weeks!

    I have gained so much knowledge, not just about nutrition but also about why it is important and the impact it has on your body and mindset! 

    I didn’t know what to expect when signing up as I had never heard of online coaching before and wasn’t sure if it would work or help me reach my goals.

    This programme is not just about healthy eating and doing the right workouts it is also about how to approach and continue a healthy lifestyle and mindset as these are just as important as what you do at the gym and the food you eat!

      Roy is a fountain of knowledge. Helping you understand and helping you to make the positive changes that are right for you and your goals.

      This has shown me how to live better and make better choices without sacrifices of things I love, like chocolate!

      I have lost not only weight/fat but inches across my body which has given me a huge confidence boost. 

      One week into this programme we went into lockdown and this programme, Roy especially, have been a consistent factor that has kept me positive and focused throughout this challenging time.

      Roy kept me updated and supported, even tailored my workouts to suit doing them from home based on any equipment I had available. His daily modules and general posts have been fantastic and a great support. I have benefited a lot from having the private group of friends who also started at the same time, they have been amazing and we have supported each other throughout this programme.

      I would recommend Roy, as a coach, and this programme, to anyone and everyone who is ready to start their journey to a positive future. I would never have imagined, after years of fad diets that never stuck, as to how positive my mindset and health has improved and I am excited about carrying on after the programme ends this week.

      Roy, I cannot thank you enough for all the knowledge, help and support you have given me in the most difficult times anyone could have imagined. I look forward to my continuing progress as the months go on thanks to you and this programme. You have changed my life for the better as I can now look in the mirror and like what i see. Thank You

      After the birth of my second daughter and my weight plateauing, l decided to take a leap of faith and join Roy’s 8wk to lean programme. I was particularly nervous for a few reasons. Firstly I have been friends with Roy for quite a few years now with our friendship being built on our love of football and beer. Because of our friendship l was worried l would let Roy down as this was not my first attempt at making a change with my diet. 

       “During the course of the 8wks it because apparent that this would not be the case. Roy’s style of coaching along with his knowledge and experience gave me the tools and confidence to make the changes l needed and l was happy to report that after the 8wks l had lost over a stone with relative ease.”

      The three key learnings l took from Roy are:

      • It’s all about choices. Of course you can eat pizza, burgers and beer but maybe not just 7 days a week.
      • Know your triggers. This is something l now recognise i.e. when l am more tired than usual its likely l will crave more carbs and that is ok.
      • What we perceive as a bad ‘eating day’ does not mean you’re a bad person. I now recognise that this is normal and the trick is to not allow a bad day turn into a bad week.

      I really couldn’t recommend Roy / RX2 enough. His knowledge, coaching style and common sense approach has helped me in so many ways.

      Cheers Roy boy and keep up the amazing work.

      So, I actually did the 8WTL program last year too. I dropped over 8kg in the process, but I wasn’t in the right frame of mind and eventually lost my way again.  I probably put half of the weight back on again.

      Last year wasn’t the best year for me mentally, and toward the end of the year I wanted to make a change with myself as I was unhappy.  Not only with my physical appeared, but my mental health too.

       So here I was  signing up for another 8 Weeks to Lean. I was kinda able to get up and running quicker because I had an idea of what to expect from the previous year, but this time round, with the changes that had been made to it, I had a lot more to fully benefit from.

      Having completed it this time round I can’t explain how much better I feel all-round.  

       “I’ve lost inches off my body everywhere.  I can fit into a smaller size from my favorite clothing brand.  Most, if not all, of my clothes are too big.  I feel healthier.  I feel stronger.  I can see huge changes in my body, such as my waist definition, and actually having some definition in my chin!  It’s been exciting to see.”

      I struggled for a long-ass time to lose weight due to the contraception injection, which totally messes with my hormones and caused me to gain a lot of weight.  Not that i’m free of that, it’s good to see it come off.

      Mentally, the changes are phenomenal.  I used to have what I call “downer” days regularly.  Probably every 2nd or 3rd day.  not they’re very infrequent.  My mind feels clearer and more free. 

       

      My productivity and organisational levels are unreal. I’m still eating all that batch cooking from the freezer!  I no longer feel guilty for having something I want because I know I can work with it and around it; Not against it!

      I’ve been learning to take time for myself that’s not sitting binging Netflix all night then wondering where my night has gone; struggling to then sleep.  I’m reading again. I’m walking again. I’m journalling again.

      It’s also given me the confidence to do something I never thought i’d do.  Play sports.  If someone told me that i’d have been attempting to play a sport… then i’d have been in fits of laughter.  But, here I am.  8 weeks into playing dodgeball and really enjoying it. 

      This, if turn, spurs me on to keep at it in the gym so I can get fitter and stronger for dodgeball!

      With all that said, I can’t recommend you enough to give Roy a shout, whether it’s to be coached or the 8 Weeks to Lean program, if you want to make some changes.
