HOW IT WORKS
Black Iron Nutrition thrives on the following trifecta: development, data, and community. What does this mean? That we coach with the combination of psychology, science, and cutting-edge software to develop our clients on the physical and mental level. We also understand the importance of the notion of a support group (so we created that too), in order to ensure you have encouragement every second of every day for as long as you are with the B.I.N. team!
Step 1: Apply for coaching and fill out a detailed questionnaire
Upon your coaching application being accepted, you will fill out the most detailed questionnaire you will ever see right within our software! We want to know everything there is to know about you in order to create a plan that you can not only stick to, but will yield the results you seek. The more educated we are on YOU, the better we can help you reach your goals.
Step 2: Review our resources and guides to getting started
While you wait 24-48 hours to hear from back us, you have TONS of content to browse through within your software portal... grocery shopping guide, food lists, meal planning guide, and much more.
Step 3: Receive your initial macro targets and meet your coach
Based on the information you provided in your questionnaire, we create your nutrition plan! We decide what type of approach you’ll need for your lifestyle/goals, and we make an initial prescription using all of the information you provided.
Now for the golden question: “Will I get a meal plan?!” Of course not! Here at Black Iron Nutrition, we believe that knowledge is power and we are about teaching you how to eat, not telling you what to eat. If we told you what to eat every day for months straight, what would you do after us? The entire point of B.I.N. is to empower you to the point of never needing another nutrition coach again. That being said, while you won’t receive a meal plan, you will receive an insane amount of tools that will teach you how to create your own meal plan successfully with the macros and skills we give you.
Don’t let this deter you… your coach will keep you accountable through in depth weekly software check ins and support you through every triumph and tribulation. The Black Iron Nutrition software has been custom developed for our clients with one goal in mind: to get them results with minimal effort as nutrition does not need to be tedious or seem like a chore.
Step 4: Track and upload weekly progress in our software platform to check in with your coach
You will check in with your coach weekly through the software, and in that check in, we ask it all! How you slept, hunger levels, energy levels, how we can best help you, how your training went, and so on. But even better... we can actually SEE into your food diary through the software, which allows us to make substitutions and alterations to your diet effortless. The check in process also shows us all your macros for the week and how close you were to hitting what we prescribed; complete with a green/red/yellow color coding system so that your own data is digestible to YOU as well as us.
Step 5: Receive feedback and set goals for the following week
From there, we coach. We tell you what you did great and help you with those healthy behaviors moving forward. We also talk about what went wrong and why, then suggest how to not let it happen again. Then we decide how to proceed depending on how the week went! Sometime that means a macro tweak and sometimes it doesn't. We always explain WHY we alter your diet.
We know we keep using the term "we", and this is because we are made up of a team of ten, and we are all very involved in everything. You will have one coach and you will build a relationship with him or her primarily, however you will always have access to the whole staff at the tip of your fingers, every single day, through our exclusive community Facebook group where members and coaches share recipes, results, hurdles, and successes. The Facebook group has thousands of current and past members in it, all eager to help one another.
Your goals may change over time with us, but the process will always remain the same. You may cancel your monthly subscription at any time. We hope you will be joining us soon!
