Frequently Asked Questions

How will I know how to do the exercises?

Each exercise will be demonstrated with a video and written instructions in the app.

What makes you different than other coaches and trainers?

The combination of a doctoral level education, a true strength and conditioning credential (not a weekend course), and a decade of experience makes us stand out.

How can you know what I need without seeing me?

Knowing what exercises a person needs is a function of their past experience, current training program, and their goals – all which can be covered in detail on our video calls!

Why are the CounterStrike products more expensive than the competition?

Our offering is an expert coach, a truly customized plan tailored to your needs, and the promise that we will push you to execute that plan. Most other products are off the shelf PDF based programming without any concern of whether you implement the plan and reach your goals. We take tremendous pride in the amount of effort we put into each plan and the results that follow.

What’s the difference between weight management and nutrition coaching?

Weight Management: Work with a coach to decide on specific weight goals for various phases of the fight cycle. We establish goals based on our ongoing study of effective weight cuts for the weeks prior to fight week, the start of fight week, including a target weight when entering the cage after rehydrating/refueling.
We also set goals for the weeks after competing to prevent the very common large swings in weight post fight. Weigh in and report your weight to use daily with our easy to use apps.

Nutrition Coaching: Establish specific macro nutrient and calorie goals based on your age, weight, height, and activity levels. Log your food daily and review your food log each week with your coach. Simultaneously work on habit change in order to make true long term changes to your body composition and performance. Get meal suggestions and lean on us to take the guesswork out of ordering from meal prep companies. Choose a company on your own or, for a truly seamless integration, order from our partnered meal prep company, Trifecta.

Is there a contract or commitment?

Nope! We pride ourselves on retaining clients based on the quality of our work and our relationship as your coach. There is no commitment or contract. Try us out. If it’s not for you, simply let us know before your billing date to cancel at any time.
