Here is what a typical Nutrition Check In will look like:
About 2 weeks after you sign up with any of our CPMFITness memberships you will receive an email introduction about our Nutrition Check-In Protocol. It will discuss why we do this appointment, what to look forward to, and we will provide you with some important info/links to look over prior to meeting with us.
Next we ask you record everything you eat for a week. This will give us a chance to take a look at your eating habits, what you eat, don’t eat, your patterns, etc… It is encouraged to journal your food just like you journal your workouts.
The meeting will focus on 4 points:
Part 1 Recon: The Interview, Questions and Backstory = It’s all about YOU!
Have answers to these questions ready for us.
What are your goals?
“Your goals are the engine to your actions.”
Describe to us why you eat the way you do?
What is your background with nutrition and dieting?
What specific questions do you have about food/nutrition?
A misconception with these types of appointments is the coach tells you what to do and whether you like it or not you need to follow it. This is very far from reality. We work for you. You are our boss. We want to be very clear with what you want to accomplish with CPMFITness. Through your current habits and your goals you desire we canter the conversation, plan and how we help hold you accountable.
Lastly, what do you need help/advice with? (We find people fall within 3 categories of help).
- Education: I don’t know what to eat? Recipes? Ideas? Alternatives? Planning
- Motivation: I’m just not motivated to eat better? I have no time? I hate cooking? I think I eat really well. Can someone just YELL at me?!?!
- Accountability: I am a yo-yo dieter. Tips? Tricks? Can someone just YELL at me again?!?!
Part 2: Story Time
At this point we will talk and give you the back-story behind Paleo, Primal, Zone, and all the diets out there. We cover what we personally follow and why. What the typical American eats and why the current health stats are the way they are. How that can change and how important it is for you to change. Our aim is to educate and empower you on what’s available, why they work and how it would apply to you. It all about providing you with the awareness (aka. truth) behind the methods and helping you make an educated decision for yourself.
Part 3: Paper Trail and Homework
We will then present you with a quick handout and guide explaining protein, carbs and fats: why and how to eat them. This will help you on what foods to add in and avoid. We will then provide more info on a food matrix, 30 day plans, shopping lists, great blogs to follow and learn from, tips and tricks on recovery, hydration, sleep and longevity. Everything you need to arm yourself with the information to succeed!
Part 4: The Future
After your initial nutrition check in it is really the beginning not the end. All of the coaches at CPMFITness practice what they preach. We have all traveled a long road with nutrition in our FITness journey’s and we are here for you. We have years of information, advice, ideas, tricks, tips, etc. all of which you literally have access to whenever you need or want it. Talk about Cliff Notes! They say a great coach is the best student. All of our staff read, experiment and have seen changes in not only themselves but hundreds (if not thousands) of other clients over the years. And, if we don’t know the answer to your question, I bet we can find the answer. Depending on the member we will do regular follow up’s, audits and check in’s. In addition we provide gym wide nutritonal challenges multiple times each year.
Believe it or not, we are MORE motivated than you about your results!
