Who, What, Where, When, How:
Dr. Westcott is an exercise science icon and one of my personal heroes in this Industry.
His life’s work has been nothing short of massive when you consider 30 plus years of dedicated research, quite a few books, a lifetime of published research, tons of articles and tens of thousands of questions answered. I can guarantee if you know anything about fitness and resistance training, Dr. Westcott’s work has been a large part of what you've learned, including what you studied when you got certified.
And if you think Dr. Westcott is great, you should meet his wife!!! She literally is a beam of light!
This is his latest research that we, at BodyEvolver, had the honor and privilege to assist. This research was recently published in the Journal of Clinical Exercise Physiology and the Journal of Exercise Physiology. The walk away from this research is that protein intake (whether vegan, vegetarian or other) is pretty critical for a few reasons:
- Daily protein shake decreases loss of lean tissue when dropping fat.
- Aids in recovery of stimulated muscles resulting in a statistically significant increase in lean tissue.
- Assists in structuring of daily food intake simplifying a healthy approach to daily nutrition for the average human.
- Behavior modufication of scheduled nutritional intake subsides appetite and reduces low quality food consumption.
- In the video we discuss the details and what it means for you, your clients and your business.

People everywhere are begining to realize a few things:
1. They are in charge of managing their health. (Health Care has failed everyone, along with the food industry)
2. They need to clean up their lifestyle behaviors around eating and movement.
3. They need a trusted source to help them. (This is where the personal training Industry comes in)

We make that easy for you. The organization of client data is critical to short and long term success.

Make Every Client A Hero As They Reach Their Goals
We simply assist in supporting the effort consciously. This is about them, not about us. The more we focus on them and serve them a high quality training experience, this anchors people into your program ... and sometimes for life.
With so much distrust and confusion that is out there in regards to managing ones health, many are awakening to the uncomfortable facts that the majority of the planet has been slighted by the current collective consciousness of humanity in the name of business and profit. The majority of people investing their own money into training and coaching need someone they can trust.
We are in the business of delivering health and fitness results. Our clients are paying for us to do so.
5 Steps That Produce the Most Consistent Results:
- Show clients their facts by collecting baseline information from which to educate them. (Collect Body Comp and Physical Assessment Data.)
- Use that personalized information to shed light and help them make behavior change. (Thoughts and opinions not necessarily based in reality, so get the facts)
- Support and encourage clients in whatever way is needed for them to make change and commit to strategic and easy behavior change for the greater good of their health. (Empower them with your support and compassion)
- Hold yourself accountable to delivering client results as if your life depended on it, then reassess. (Because your success depends upon it.)

It has been a pleasure to work with Dr. Westcott and his fantastic team on this research. Definitely a dream come true for me. Yet, this dream has little to do with me and everything to do with a passion for spreading the love of fitness for the greater good.
