Paul’s 90 Day Results (from 2022 Weight Loss Challenge)

It’s been 90 days since I started the Nutrition Lab diet. I’m dialed in, I’m pushing hard, and I’m staying with it until I reach my goal of 165. So join me this January, as we do it again! – Coach Paul

Nutrition is More Than Weight Loss

In August 2022, I knew Sand & Steel needed to bring back the Nutrition Coaching Program I coached from 2013-2019. As a coach, I never ask anything from my clients that I would not do myself. And so that meant, I needed to buckle down and start following my own diet, and I am glad I did.

  • Weight Loss: In the 90 days, I lost 22 lbs of body fat and put on 4 pounds of muscle mass. Yielding a net result of -18 lbs. I feel better and I perform better.
  • Performance: But the biggest surprise to me is how much eating better helped my workout performance.  I saw about a 25% improvement in my workouts in the first 30 days.  Imagine that, performing better when you eat better.  Shocking, but most people don’t appreciate how this matters. If you workout better, you can build more muscle.
  • Mobility: I feel better and my mobility has improved. For the first time every, I’m able to do Side Crow in Yoga. That doesn’t sound like much, but I have attempted and failed to do that pose for 5 plus years.
  • Competitions: I also finished 15 out of 140 people in the Spartan Sprint and completed 100% of the obstacles.
I’m Three Months in and I’m not stopping here. If I feel this good now, how good am  I going to feel when I lose the next 20 lbs?

So get inspired, signup for a Spartan Race if that’s your jam, join me in our CrossFit Classes or Personal Training, and build a body that you can proud of.

Nutrition Lab

Sand & Steel Offers Personal Training, Nutrition Coaching, Semi-Private Training, and CrossFit Classes to help you get into shape. Since diet is a big part of weight loss, we will be offering Nutrition Lab every other Thursday at 7PM to assist you in your weight loss journey.
