Dietetics grad. Nutrition and fitness coach. Educational blogger & vlogger. Helping women everywhere be unapologetically strong, well-fed, and more badass #womenwhoeat™

Hiiiii, my name is LCK.

I graduated from Illinois State with a Bachelors in Food, Nutrition, and Dietetics and have been in the nutrition and fitness coaching space for 12+ years now.

I was diagnosed hypothyroid in my late high school years. It led me to pursue a higher education to not only turn around my own health, but help others in my position never be in my position.

I’ve written hundred of educational blogs, written multiple ebooks, launched numerous nutrition programs, been on live TV, guest speaker on numerous popular podcasts, and also love filming Youtube content.

One of my proudest accomplishments this past year has been founding the amazing community that is Paragon Training Methods.

Paragon is effectively changing lives around the world and leading the way in people being strong, well-fed, and more badass.

Strong looks good on every body and every body. And you don’t have to kill yourself  in the kitchen and gym to look and feel damn good.

xoxo, LCK

The majority of the “at-home workouts” available right now are focused primarily on conditioning. These workouts often look like 4-5 miscellaneous movements slammed together for as many reps or rounds as possible in a 20-40 minute time frame.

There’s no long-term structure or plan. Nor is there a focus on quality strength and lifting pieces, as everything is about accumulating reps for time.

Those types of random, at-home workouts will definitely make you sweat and get the endorphins going… but aren’t necessarily the most efficient route to build muscle or a great looking physique. 

Whether you realize it or not, the body and appearance you desire likely has more muscle than you currently have now.

We can’t be endlessly dieting, as our body needs sufficient calories in order to build muscle. Conditioning is great and there’s nothing wrong with enjoying cardio, but it should definitely be paired with lifting heavy weights a few times a week, if possible. 

There’s no such thing as “toning.” Being “lean” is a result of carrying more muscle and less fat. It’s incredibly hard for a female to get “bulky.” And we certainly aren’t going to appear “more shredded” if we lose weight UNLESS we’ve been lifting heavy and pushing it during workouts to build and maintain muscle.

If you want to look and feel damn good, it’s achieved by following a structured program, living an active lifestyle, and consistently eating well. Since day one, we’ve led with a unique style of evidenced-based programming to make training fun and help our members build muscle, enhance their physique, and help them look and feel their best.

With Bryan’s extensive background in programming and my 12+ years of dietetics schooling and experience coaching nutrition, we’re effectively taking the confusion of nutrition and fitness and helping thousands of people around the globe find better harmony with their body, food, and exercise ♥️
