Consulting

Training & Nutrition Consultations

2011 to 2013
Lift Big Eat Big is now offering training consultations by phone for both experienced athletes and beginner athletes. The goal of the consultations is to help you reach or maintain your training goals whether it’s gaining weight, losing weight, breaking through a training plateau, or simply trying to figure out where to take your training next.  By identifying what you want to achieve, we will work with you to find the ideal fitness and nutrition plans to help you reach your goals, both long term & short term.




How it works
First, you will need to send us an introduction email explaining your training goals to see if our consultations are a good fit. Let’s face it—sometimes the goals are extremely unrealistic and we just can’t help you (i.e. add 100lbs to your squat in one week). Once we’ve agreed on attainable goals, we’ll discuss how often you want to talk, and schedule the consultations. Once we go over your goals, we will pick the best consultant that is right for you (Brandon, Matt, or Alanna).

Most consultations will come with monthly programming at no additional cost, for as long as you continue the monthly fee. This fee also includes our time spent reading and replying to texts, emails, and dissecting your lifts via your weekly Youtube videos. Diet and nutrition can be discussed at length during the calls, although a detailed diet plan is a separate charge of $200.




What it can do for competitive athletes
While some want to lose or gain weight, others already have their body mass dialed in, and are now looking to take it to the next level by entering competitions. LBEB has successfully worked with powerlifters, Strong(wo)men, Olympic lifters, sprinters, Crossfitters, Collegiate level athletes, even Timbersport competitors. We can discuss your upcoming events and structure your program around it, or we can spend 3-6 months building baseline strength and then pick a competition together. Whatever your competitive needs are, we will help you achieve them.

Why you need it
Sometimes it takes someone looking from the outside to identify problems with your training or food intake, and that's where we come in.  By talking with you one-on one, we will identify all the areas that can be improved in your training, as well as offering the solutions to these problems.

Outside the U.S.?If you live outside of North America, You need to tell us in your first email, BEFORE you pay. Time differences may prevent us from being able to work with you adequately.

We offer Skype sessions for consultations with international athletes. Be sure to set up a Skype account (it's free) and let us know your user name in the introduction email you send us. Same rates apply in U.S. dollars. Due to time differences and constraints, INTL consults will be reviewed before being approved, to make sure you will get the most out of your purchase.


Payment
Payment for the sessions will be done through PayPal. If you do not have a PayPal account, don't worry--we will send you a bill every month and you just have to enter your payment information. There's no need to sign up for a PayPal account if you do not choose to. Payments for the consultations must be made prior to the first scheduled phone call.
*There are no refunds on consultation payments once the payment has gone through, unless we deem it necessary.

  3. Ever consulted a 36yo female who has had 3 major accidents (one in the line of duty)...20 surgeries...total left hip replacement, fused from L1-S1, left sacral fusion, and steel plate in pelvis (to name a few). Have chronic pain/arthritis but take no meds. Use to be 275...then lost half of me and got to 140.
    My goal...lose the weight I've gained by being bedridden for 11 out 12 months last year and get my muscle back (atrophy).
    My eating is pretty on target!

    1. Hi Sue, based on those kind of parameters, I feel that it would be more beneficial for you to work with a trainer is person, who can assess the way you move in real-time. Where are you located?

    2. hey sue, long time lurker, first time commenting. if your in the states look for a ACSM registered exercise physiologist who will work hand in hand with your PTO (physio officer or PT if your off base) if in canada it would be CSEP CEP (like myself) just due to the extent of your Hx you would be BEST off working with these guys (of course until you are at the point where you could say that you are safely past the point of injury/re-facking sh!t up.

    3. Thanks guys!! And thank you for being honest (so many arent't). After my injury I used CrossFit as my rehab (believe it or not) and it was amazing! I am far enough out from my "NEW" hip that I can basically do as I please. I will always have issues, but nothing that is going to stop me. I actually will be back in the box come July! (excited about this).
      And thanks Kev...I will look someone up in my area (oh and I am a "retired" sheriff's deputy now...woohoo)!

  10. I purchased a set of 1 1/2" long lifting straps and just received them. I don't understand how i'm supposed to use them? They have like a 2" hole that I cant fit my hand through. There is no "Contact us" button anywhere on this website so i'm hoping to get in touch with someone here. maybe these are used differently than im used to with lifting straps? Im used to putting my hand through a hole then wrapping the strap around barbell or dumbell.

    Thanks,

    Michael Ortega

  11. I am training to go to selection for Air Force Special Operations and am looking to gain some strength and size. I know that I will have to sacrifice some endurance training in the mean time. Would your programming work in my situation?

  12. I'm highly interested in changing my life around and getting into great shape. I'm a 6' 285lbs of fat. I got out of the Army in 2008 at 190lbs lean. Between college and an "I don't care" attitude I have gained 100lbs in 4 years. I am wanting to set a goal of getting back into the Army as an officer in 18 months. I need to be down to 22% body fat by then. I'm a registered nurse and eat junk, but have been trying to change that. I'm in Florida. Do you think your consultation is something of help to me or should I check into other routes to obtain my goals?

  13. How frequent is the correspondence? i.e. how many chats per month for the monthly fee?

  14. I am 27yo female at 123lbs. Powerlifter, crossfitter, and runner. I knocked either 4-5 ribs out of place nearly 4 months ago, and the recovery has been EXTREMELY slow. I did it during an olympic lifting seminar, trying to set a new snatch PR while fatigue (lesson learned there).. Thinking I was just sore, I continued my training program at the time, did 5x5 back sqauts at 175# w/ belt.. made it much worse.. The doctor that manipulated them back into place also seemed to bruised the area badly.. I'm still seeing a chiropractor regularly. My ultimate goal is to build back my strength while recovering.. Would you also recommend that I meet with someone in person for my situation? Regardless, I love this your blog, articles, and EVERYTHING, so it's definitely something I'd like to try eventually.

  15. I am trying to put on weight and have been reading your blogs...great stuff! Keep it comin.

    But I am also interested in training Strongman style but am in need of a gym/training. Do you know of anywhere in San Diego worth the dollars?

    With that, in October2012 I weighed 170 and am now 195-200(AUG2013). Is that a good proggression or am I behind the curve?

    Thanks!

  18. I started the program for crossfitters. I discovered that my strength was something I really needed to work on after participating in a competition in January 2014 where weight was the challenge for the majority of the workouts. Needless to say I didnt do so well even though I can wipe out a cardio chipper with kettebells, box jumps etc. my Olympic lifts and upper body movements pullups/handstand pU/ring dips etc. havent really improved much in a year.

    So my husband dedicated me to this program and I am hoping to see some results/gains. My question is this ..I missed two days on week 3..(the last 2 days) ...I should be starting week 4 today but am not sure if I need to make up these 2 days somewhere in the plan...

    Its been really hard not to divert back to my crossfitting ways of WODs but I am determined to complete this program...and Thank you for allowing me to use your programming!

  19. Do your consultations come with diets and programs? Looking to get a lot stronger in the next 6 months and feel I would need both

  20. I am working on my endurance through crossfit and its getting better however my strength numbers are not getting better. What types of items can consultation bring to the table? I gained about 60 lbs on my back squat and 45 on front squat doing the greyskull lp earlier in the year are these types of items that your consultation has to offer?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Can you give a quick recommendation to alternative exercise for squats. I have blown my back out from military parachuting. I can bench, shoulder press, deadlift isn't great but not bad either, all other exercises good. Squats is where it fails. This could be also to the lack of good stabilizers as well as my back but I find I can do Lunges quite well as well as Zercher Squats. Problem being you can only go so heavy. Obviously with a blown back and still serving in the military it is not in my interest to do any more damage. But I'd like to move forward and toughen and get stronger. Any ideas, comments or advice?
    Cheers Guys.

  22. I just started the 8 week plan for crossfit. Am I supposed to do a short body weight metcon after each weight session or only on the off days?
