Optimize Coach program has been life changing!
I have been following Brian’s work for 10 years, and every time he offers something new, I sign up. I know he will deliver far more than I expect, and Optimize Coach has done exactly that.
I have never wanted to do an obstacle course. And yet on 6th October 2019, I completed my first Spartan Sprint race, in Windsor, UK, crossing the finish line with my amazing swim buddy Julia Myles. I only signed up for this, because one of the requirements for Optimize Coach is to complete a Spartan Race and I wanted to be certified.
I began training with a Spartan Personal trainer twice a week from February 2019, which has improved my strength, endurance and fitness. I also took on board what I learned on the program about nutrition, and joined Bright Line Eating Boot camp on 8 July 2019 to complement my studies. I have lost 35 pounds to date! I am now overweight, no longer obese, and have the same weight that I did when I was 26, 29 years ago! I have worn a UK size 18 trousers for years, and recently have started to wear UK size 12 trousers! I feel fabulous! I love this new slimmer, stronger, fitter body, and everyone is commenting at how great I look. I still have 30 pounds to lose to get to my right size body, but I KNOW that it will happen, in the next few months.
As for Spartan Racing, I LOVE it! I’m flying to LA in 2 weeks for our Graduation weekend, and I’ll be doing my second Spartan Sprint race with my amazing swim buddy and all the other coaches. AND we have both signed up for another Spartan Sprint race in Sussex, UK in April 2020, and are considering a Spartan Super at Windsor in October 2020. I think we both have the bug!
I have prioritised sleep even more and my new baseline is now 8 hours per night. This has made me much more energetic during the day and is evidenced by my resting heart rate reducing from a maximum of 72 in 2017 to 53/54 November 2019.
Our daily Carpe Diem journal has really helped me to create a better balance in my life, giving me permission to work less, and play more. I’m much more productive when I choose to work, and I am more present in my relationships. I no longer spend my evenings in my study. I stop work at 5pm, and my evening is all about eating and spending time with my family and friends.
I met my friend Julia Myles 4 years ago, and we have always connected weekly as accountability buddies. Optimize has deepened our friendship even more, and through our Carpe Diem journaling we have been connecting daily and have celebrated and supported each other even more this year.
One of THE biggest gains for me this year, has been the development of this wonderful friendship. In particular, completing our first spartan race together, and we are both going to LA in 2 weeks for graduation. This is HUGE for both of us and sharing this journey together has been priceless.
I am Spartan Maxine. I am an Optimize Coach, and I will be on this journey with Julia, Brian, and the Optimize Team for the foreseeable future.
If you’re considering Optimize Coach, I do hope you’ll join us. It could just change YOUR life too!
