“Prior to working with Greg, I was a detached and nutritionally possessed mess. I was distressed about hitting precise nutritional quotas each day. I would refrain from going out to eat with family and friends in fear of not knowing the exact composition of my meal. However, Greg taught me how preoccupying yourself with regards to macronutrients is just as detrimental as tormenting yourself over the foods you eat and what time you eat them at. His guidance aided in relieving myself of this obsessive behavior and allowed me to live a flexible lifestyle that was far more enjoyable and sustainable.” - Tim Manley
“Last competition prep (with a different coach) I was hungry, exhausted, too skinny, and chained to containers all day every day. I am so thankful that Greg has helped me become healthier inside and out! I no longer view foods as “bad” and I can actually enjoy a meal out with my family and celebrate special occasions without my Tupperware! My workouts are challenging and change as my body changes. My strength has increased, my metabolism is healthy, my physique has never been better, and my gym time is no longer a chore that I dread. On top of that, I have a healthier view of my own body and have made peace with my body image. Greg has been available to me whenever I need anything whether it is nutrition question, a workout question, or just to have a support system. This man knows his stuff and amazes me with his knowledge of nutrition and training.” - Rachel Mikel
Working with Greg I've learned the how to properly implement nutrition timing. I’ve also learned how to balancing having a social life, going out for a drink or two while still progressing further towards my goals. Before working with Greg I had an idea about macros, however did not know how to optimize my diet for my performance. Now I don’t stress about nutrition, being social and going out, or “switching it up” on my workouts. Greg has taught me life balance with flexible dieting, simple enough anyone can learn.” - Kyle Brubaker
“Greg Farris is not just an intelligent coach that understand the science and the importance of flexibility when it comes to health & fitness, he’s also a true gent and humble coach. With Greg’s guidance I can focus on other areas of my life, knowing I am in secure hands, this is invaluable to me. Currently under 20 weeks out from my first natural bodybuilding show, doing 1 cardio session a week, eating almost 3000 calories and I can still go away on holiday with my girlfriend. That’s enough evidence that Greg is a terrific coach and I hope to replicate his skills in my own coaching“- Stephen Hall
