Why we created this course...

Our goal is to make sustainable fitness a reality for everyone. This course is a big part of how we plan to do it. 

We've gotten great feedback from everyone who we've coached, (see our testimonials page) but it still seemed like we weren't really able to pass along all of the information we wanted to share. 

We've learned so much in our own journey, but with 1-on-1 coaching, all we can share is the information that is directly applicable to you at the time. There simply isn't room for a full "education-style" teaching within the existing coaching system.

We had to come up with something else.

With this course, you will be educated on all areas of fitness, nutrition and lifestyle. Regardless of what challenges you run into, you will have the right mindset, tools and strategies to tackle them head on. It is our mission to give you the resilience and anti-fragility that no matter how many set-backs you face in life, you will still keep pressing forward towards your goal.

In fact, we think this course is so essential to sustainable results that when we released it, we actually gave it to all of our existing clients for free!

My favorite themes of Derek and Rachel’s is that they never fail to provide the key tools for balance and sustainability. I’ve learned to produce this in my own life from the BYOC course and I’m now 7 weeks into a diet plan and several clothing sizes down. I feel rested and happy and in no way deprived being that I am fulfilling the necessary balance in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle for the long term!
— Samantha Kowalski

We'll teach you how to do it…

Rather than just telling you WHAT to do and leaving you to fail when you go off on your own, we’ll show you HOW to set up your own plan, so that you can maintain your own fitness for the rest of your life. 

Essentially, we're giving you the tools and blueprint to create the exact same program that we would create for you. Not only that, we're giving you access to the information and teaching you how to apply it to yourself.

We've taken everything we've learned in our own journeys and through working with clients and compiled it into one complete "how to" course. 

Everything you need to start your sustainable fitness journey...

This course will cover every area of fitness, nutrition and lifestyle that we cover in our one-on-one coaching. 

You'll learn...

  • How to create your own programs
  • How to evaluate your progress and understand why the scale isn't always your friend
  • How to adjust your training and diet and troubleshoot other areas of your life that are getting in the way

People need to know that it is not just exercise that will get you there, it’s not just diet that will get you there and it is not just getting a good sleep that will get you there. I’ve always just exercised and then ate what I wanted, but never getting the results I truly wanted. This course reminded/taught me that all 5 areas are essential and it has been awesome to see myself implement little changes each week.

After completing the BYOC course, I feel that my mindset is different than it was before. I’ve bought into many fitness programs before and once I stopped or finished, I just seemed to go back to the way I was living before. Being healthy is more than just eating and exercise - and now I feel like I have a more well-rounded approach.
— Becky S.

If you're still not sure and you'd like to talk it over, we have a limited number of "no pressure" free consultations available to meet and discuss which option is best for you!

The "No Pressure" Free Consultation

Our reputation is BUILT on you. We will not up-sell UNLESS it makes sense for you, both financially and for your goals. We do NOT want to make you uncomfortable, so WE WILL NOT (!!) PRESSURE YOU to buy something. Change only happens when you are ready to make it happen, so we do not want you to start until you tell us you are ready. Pressure sales do not accomplish anything for us.

Let's say we get on the call and it just doesn't make sense for you. Worst case, you've spent 20 minutes of your time and had a chance to ask us those burning fitness questions that you've been dying to know the answer to. Not only that, if we somehow do convince you to buy our course when you really didn't want it (let's say we accidentally turn into really good sales people) - You still have 30 days to return it. If we haven't started designing a program for you (Exclusive Package), the only question we'll ask is why you decided to back out.

110%  Money-Back Guarantee on All Services

Our Promise to You

We are so sure that you'll be satisfied that we offer a 110%  money-back guarantee. If you're not satisfied, we'll return your investment... PLUS an additional 10% for your trouble!

What Makes Us Different?...

If you've read any of our blog posts, or talked to any of our clients, you'll know that sleep, stress and mindset are three of the keys to success that we really focus in on. They are such huge barriers for so many people in their quest for health and fitness.

Of course, we'll also discuss nutrition and exercise, those can't be forgotten, but sleep, stress and mindset are often not considered.


How's your energy level through the day? Do you find you have difficulty getting to sleep or maybe even difficulty convincing yourself to go to sleep when you know you should? Do you ever wish you could just sleep better so you'd have the energy to keep up with your diet and exercise?

Surprisingly this isn't just because you're the kind of person who makes poor choices. (We'll get back to that in a minute!) In fact, the reason you have difficulty getting yourself to go to bed on time may just be because you are doing things that limit your natural ability to get tired. When we meet with you we'll discuss your 'sleep hygiene' habits and identify areas that you can improve to get a better sleep every night!

Sleep is so critical to everything related to health and fat loss. Getting a good night's sleep increases your energy level, boosts your willpower and self-control and reduces cravings for high calorie 'junk foods.' - Rather than just focusing on quantity, we're big believers in maximizing quality of sleep as well. I would much prefer that a client of mine got 6 hours of high quality sleep rather than 8-10 hours of low quality sleep. As part of each coaching package you get our Sleep 101 guide and personal coaching on which strategies will be best for you.


Similar to sleep, stress also plays a big part in your ability to make good choices through the day. If you don't take care of your stress levels, before you know it you'll find yourself at home, elbow deep in a bag of chips and wondering why you can never stick to a plan. As much as part of it may be related to your base level of willpower, it certainly doesn't help when you're draining that will power all day by being under constant stress.

We'll work with you to identify stressors, find ways to relieve stress and avoid adding too many dietary and exercise stressors - in the case of excess stress, too much exercise can actually be a bad thing!


Now, back to the mindset... I mentioned early that you may think you are just the 'kind of person' who makes bad choices. Whether or not you have this specific belief about yourself, there are many beliefs that people hold that limit their potential. This is one example and false self-beliefs are a major cause of struggle when it comes to sticking to any plan longterm.

When we coach you we'll work with you to identify these limiting beliefs and correct them. How you think about yourself, how you think about your health and how you think about your food are all deeply intertwined with how you will react to the struggles and difficulties that will inevitably come along the way as you try to work towards your goal.

It is virtually impossible to be successful over the long haul without addressing false beliefs about yourself, your fitness and your abilities.

There is much more that we'll address in the course on these subjects and many others, but for the sake of conciseness on this page, we'll stick with those three for now.
