“May 2013, marked the one year point before I would turn 50 years old. It was at that time that I decided to prepare for my first ever, Bodybuilding and Physique Competition for my 50th year. I began to train harder and heavier in the gym and take the necessary supplements to gain as much mass as I could over the upcoming year. I felt comfortable with the training portion but my weak link was the lack of understanding for the nutrition part of a competition preparation. I knew that I needed to hire someone who I could fully trust to oversee, advise and coach me in and through the nutritional aspect of my prep. It was highly recommended that I contact Leo King.
From my initial email (Jan 2014), all the way through to the end of the competitions (Nov 2014), “Coach” Leo has, in virtual reality, been “by my side”. Leo began working with me from the minute I fully agreed to commit myself to the work that would be involved. Through email, weekly summaries and pics, my nutritional journey began. Leo soon became a household name, with my family constantly chiming in with things like “What would Leo say if you ate that?”, “Just have it Dad, Leo doesn’t have to know”, “Just don’t tell Leo”, etc… LOL!!
Leo has the amazing balance and timing of excellent coaching. Leo is COMMITTED to you and expects the same full commitment from his clients (this will be the key to your success!!) Leo is AVAILABLE and KNOWLEDGEABLE with any questions, concerns or clarity you will have along the way. Leo is HARD and STRICT when you screw up (yes, he even had me in tears at times!); Leo is very ENCOURAGING with the ability to see your progress when you don’t; Leo remains LEVEL HEADED (especially during “peak week” and competition day when the athlete losses their brain!!); Leo carries a sense of WONDERMENT to keep you the athlete alert, engaged and on your toes.
I could not have had the personal success without a coach like Leo. Even to this day, when I look at the progress pics, I grin with a deep satisfaction that my personal fitness/conditioning goals were completely accomplished and then some!! Leo’s method and style really worked for me. The flexible dieting approach allowed me to enjoy the foods that I love. Throughout my whole prep, I never felt hungry and I rarely craved certain foods. My options of what to eat were wide open. I learned to make wiser nutritional intake decisions to stay within the macro values that were set for me. This learning continues with me to date, regardless if I’m in specific training or not.
With the visual results to speak for themselves, my friends and acquaintances constantly ask about “how I did it?” and “what was my program?” I will always (more than) highly recommend them to contact Leo King directly. Without a doubt, this truly was the key to the success that I personally experienced. I will forever be grateful to Coach Leo!!”
