Introduction of the course - We will have an overview of generalized nutrition and what to expect over the next nine weeks as well as instruction on how to use My Fitness Pal, how to track measurements, progress pics, etc.
We dive right into the macronutrient modules that make up our food which are protein, fat, and carbs. How does each macronutrient assist in body composition goals and what ratios should we aim for when planning our meals. Further we will cover the pros and cons of popular diets such as intermittent fasting, keto, and time restricted eating.
We turn our attention to the importance of both Strength training and cardio for proper fat loss as well as how to properly do interval training, applying the right effort in the gym, and hydration needs for each.
We introduce our Clinical Psychologists specializing in Behavior and habit change for long lasting lifestyle changes. We will also cover which supplements are worth investing in and if they have any immediate benefits with fat loss as well which ones are a waste of money.
We cover the benefits of quality sleep in regards to body composition, overall health, and recovery. We will also educate you on how to determine your own energy budget.
We are back with part two of our behavior and habit change module as well as discussing the topic of Menopause and how this affects our body composition, nutritional needs, strength goals, and more.
We introduce the massive topic of the negative effects of extreme dieting known as RED-S (often referred as low energy availability). Advanced calorie tracking options will also be covered.
Our final behavior and habit change module will be discussed as well as what training nutrition looks like for different goals.
We finish off with a conversation around reverse dieting and what maintenance looks like after a fat loss phase.

OUR SUCCESS STORIES
"During the eight weeks of Fat Loss Happens I lost 8.2 pounds, body fat decreased by 2.2 % and skeletal muscle increased by 1.2 %. Over the years/decades I have read countless books on diets and nutrition. None of them gave me the level of applicable scientific-based information that Tony and Hailey provided in this program. I feel empowered and confident about my body and the choices I can make to care for myself. Fast approaching 51 and already in menopause, I now feel confident about how I can age strong and healthy without following a diet that restricts food groups or requires “dieting.” Thank you Tony and Hailey!"
"I participated in Fat Loss Happens, a 12-week program that changed my life. I’ve always liked exercise and I thought I knew what to eat to fuel my goals. What I learned was so valuable! Tony and Hailey have designed the most efficient way to lose fat without slowing metabolism, and avoiding muscle loss. The program is expertly set up to see major long-lasting results! I was less hungry than anything I’ve tried before, so it wasn’t difficult to stick to the macros and the workouts had such great variety each week. I love the knowledge, experience, and the strength I’ve gained. Thank You Hailey!"
"The Fat Loss Happens program was a wonderful experience. The support and education I received gave me the tools and confidence to make lasting changes to my diet and fitness routine. One of my goals was to develop a habit of incorporating consistent strength training into my routine and the assigned and structured workouts made this possible. During the 9 week program I noticed improved strength and fitness and I can’t wait to continue this journey!"
I have lost 5 kg (11 pounds) over the 8 weeks of this program. It came off slow and steady which is how we learned is best. I was injured for quite some time and was becoming very disappointed with the 10 kg I had gained over time. It almost got to the point where I gave up on myself. Maybe I am too old, maybe it is menopause. My mindset was getting very negative and hormones all over the place due to perimenopause. Your program has been an absolute blessing. I feel invigorated, rejuvenated, and stronger mentally and physically. I want to lose 5 more kg the right was as this program has taught me how to do and be the inspiring coach I once was, especially as I age gracefully. I am so thrilled with the weight I have lost and the muscle I have gained.
I am so thankful to have been a part of Fat Loss Happens! Tony and Hailey nailed this and helped me tremendously! I am 49, post menopausal, and was struggling with all that menopause did to my body. I have always been active and managed my weight easily, until I began going through menopause three years ago. The education Tony and Hailey provided about insulin resistance and the need to strength train to help combat the menopausal weight gain was spot on. Not only do they provide science based information to debunk all of the fad diets/programs out there, they provide great support to help you along your journey. Hailey always responded to my questions and if she was unable to answer them, she’d pass them along to Tony for his expertise. This is a great, solid program for anyone looking for the correct way to gain muscle, lose fat, gain insight, and debunk all of the mixed messages we hear on a daily basis about weight loss. Thank you Hailey and Tony for all the insight and support!
I have muscles in my 40’s that I never had in my 30’s. My strength is more than just physical. My transformation started first, when I decided I wanted change for myself and I was willing to do the work. Second, I learned the valuable information provided in this program. I feel like I have a degree in Exercise Sciences after this course. Like Maya Angalou said, ”when you know better, you do better." I have lost body fat. I have lost weight. More importantly, I’ve gained muscle. Best of all, I’ve gained the power to change the trajectory of the second half of my life.
I thought I'd take a minute to share my personal successes:
I followed the exercise program strictly for six weeks, despite life factors. I worked out when baby slept, at night, early am, even when my husband was away and then recovering from surgery.
Learned about Macros. As a plant-based eater, this was a hard lesson, but I think I've found a really happy balance for my body and my lifestyle. As you know, the first two weeks, I tried to get there with my normal diet and wasn't even close. Then I incorporated fake meats, etc. And the pendulum swung from constipated to the opposite. By the end of the first week or two I was just eating meat to get to my goals and I felt TERRIBLE! Then, I reset my goals and thinking and eating based on the science I had learned within my own diet, and it yielded the results I was looking for.
I gained visible muscle, I gained 4 lbs, I felt stronger, I lifted heavier.
Learned about fueling for my workout (I was DEF doing this all wrong).
Learned better mechanics for intermittent fasting (I had been fasting in AM until 12 or 1pm, and working out in the morning. My body was starving!)
I adopted Hailey's mantra around tempting food of "it's not forever, it's just not now" (I have a sweet tooth so this helped. I also blew up my diet several nights in a row and then, reset.)
I built a home gym.
I went back into the gym for the first time in years with confidence and shook off the 'i don't belong here' feeling.
I dusted off my TRX and remembered how much I LOVE it and how intense it can be!
I plan to complete the program soon, because I'm most interested in the education modules. My experience was good, and while I may not be the textbook definition of success, I was happy with the results and felt quite successful, so thanks!
I have always been a physically active person. I run, hike, ski, bike, and in recent years have introduced about two days of weight training into my schedule. I have never been overweight or unhappy with my weight, but I have always thought it would be wonderful to feel/look lighter and leaner. This goal was basically unattainable, not because of lack of exercise, but because of my diet! I wasn’t the most terrible eater, but I certainly had a lot of room for improvement…
Along come Hailey and Tony…
They taught me how to count calories and how to put more protein in my diet to build more muscle. They gave me killer strength training programs and taught me good weight lifting technique. The calorie counting is the most challenging for me. It is not easy, and I am not perfect. A lot of days I just estimate my numbers. But having the science behind macronutrients and the awareness of energy in and energy out has made a difference!
The last time I checked, I had lost 3 pounds. I notice it the most in my belly area. I have always had a little “pooch” of fat. I still don’t have a “six pack," but my “pooch” has really flattened out! The definition in my arms and back is noticeable and my face has thinned out. Hailey and Tony are helping me change my body composition. I love it. My boyfriend LOVES it. I feel like a million bucks!!! Healthier, lighter and leaner!!!
Thank you, Hailey and Tony!!!!
