Full Time Lean Eating!
I am thrilled to be able to announce that I am now working full time for Precision Nutriton as a Lean Eating coach.
Precision Nutrition has been an important part of my life and my lifestyle since 2005 and many of my clients have not only benefitted but changed their bodies and lives through PN's Habits of Highly Successful Eating.
MY HISTORY WITH PN
I was fortunate to be introduced to Precision Nutrition and the teachings of Dr. John Berardi very early on in my career in the fitness & peak performance industry. I was thrilled that these resources and this community existed at it provided the answers and tools I was personally looking for to reshape my body.
THE CALL FROM JB!
I became active in the PN community very quickly and within a year became a Precision Nutrition Network member so I could teach the habits and provide essential resources to my cleints so they could accomplish their goals.
Not too long after that I caught the attention of the PN team and was asked by John Berardi to become a Moderator and contribute to my own PN Blog. Saying I was honoured and excited would be an understatement. Imagine how you would feel if one of the most knowledgable and impactful fitness and nutrition experts called you at home! It was like talking to a celebrity. Well in our industry, I WAS talking to a celebrity.
KRISTA's PN BLOG GAINS POPULARITY
My Blogs became very popular and at one time my name was apparently searched more than Dr. Berardi's himself (JB is very modest and didn't mind one bit!). My threads such as Sometimes Less is More and my Training Logs were of particular interest.
In addition to contributing within PN, I also lead my own Peak Performance and Fitness business, Defining Edge. Within Defining Edge I did a slew of different things wthin the industry, all with the underlying goal of empowering people and helping them become their personal best.
HOW CAN I IMPACT MORE PEOPLE?
However, success can be a double edged sword. The more bodies and lives I transformed, the more that were lining up to get a peice of the success! I am very passionate about my "job" and had a very hard time saying no. I really did want to help everyone. But I am just one person and there are only so many hours in a day.
In no time I was working from 6 am to 9 pm most days of the week and my life became my work and vice versa. There was little division between home time and work time and I felt like I wanted to impact more people and impact them in a different manner.
I had come to learn, in my more than a decade's experience in the industry, that the REAL secret to success was nutrition. Training is important - very important but it was FOOD that really impacts and transforms a body.
Just when I was feeling overwhelmed and stuck about how to help more people and help them better, I was offered a position as a Lean Eating coach with Precision Nutrtion.
LIVING THE DREAM
It was my dream! To be part of a highly skilled team and deliver the most quality nutrition curriculum - full of integrity and research and results - and to work with more women in a more flexible environment, online.
And now today, I will be doing just that full time.
I am 100% commmitted to Precision Nutrition and beleive strongly in the community and the products and services they offer and the philosophies that they are built on.
I am sad to see Defining Edge be a part of my past, but every client that I worked with in the last 5 years has molded me into a fine Lean Eating coach and has provided important lessons and tools along the way.
Thank you Defining Edge clients for being an imporant part of my own personal and professional journey.
I hope you will continue on your own journey and consider joining either Lean Eating or Scrawny to Brawny programs in the near future. You will learn lots, further transform your physique and we may have the opportunity to work together again!
For my professional clients and colleagues, the Precision Nutrition Certification is a MUST. There is nothing out there that beats it.
