With gyms open in most regions but potential shutdowns looming, we are offering in-home training options for fat loss clients.
If fat loss is your primary goal, you must have the following equipment to train in-home (or purchase it before the program begins): Resistance bands/tubing, mini-bands, sliders (paper plates or small dish towel would suffice), jump rope, suspension trainer
If hypertrophy is your primary goal, you must still have access to a gym.
(If you’re training for hypertrophy and gyms in your area shut down mid-cohort, we’ll be able to shift you to a 3-day/wk hypertrophy program for in-home. The equipment required is similar to the equipment required for fat loss, you will just replace the suspension trainer with a dumbbell or kettlebell set.)
“Down 10lbs since starting this! I’m loving this program. I started slow and was struggling to get (my workouts) in but what a difference in how I feel when I do!”
“I’m noticing my shirts are feeling tighter around the shoulders and arms. And seeing the numbers go up in terms of weights and reps is really encouraging. So many times I want to hit the snooze button, but this has helped me keep at it.”
“I’ve had some great workouts and have built up consistency with my habits again, which feels great. Last week on deadlift day I hit 12 reps at 225lbs which is the most reps I’ve ever done at that weight. That felt amazing! I’m celebrating and having lots of fun!”

In order to give you a good idea of what to expect in OTC, I thought that I’d share my experience as a client of the program
While I own the company, I don’t actively work in it.
Instead, I’m a client –– getting coached just like you would be if you decide to join us.
My goal has been hypertrophy.
Earlier this year crippling back pain forced me to seek treatment. X-rays showed degenerative disc disease. It was horrible.
I set out to train 5 days a week.
I wrote this note 10 weeks into the program.
Out of a possible 50 workouts, I logged 49.
For that, I’m very proud because it wasn’t been easy.
Just as one example, on Saturday, Oct 10, my city (Toronto) closed gyms again.
Because of COVID, I had to train in three different locations in two weeks alone!
None of those spaces were optimal. They all had minimal equipment.
Without the accountability of my OTC coach who made adjustments to my program based on equipment, there’s literally no way I’d have gotten my workouts in.
Yes, I’m motivated. Yes, I want this. But I would not have done it on my own.
Keeping track of my own workouts and adjusting my own programming right now is simply too much to handle.
These days, I’m going from 6am – 10pm without a chance to breathe.
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
But, at the same time, there’s no time, space, or mental energy for me to keep track of my own workouts.
At the same time, I know that when I workout I feel better, think better, and am able to be more to the people I love.
For that reason, fitness comes first. Always. And without exception.
These days I’m driving to my sister’s house at 6am Mon-Fri for my workout.
Every morning when my alarm goes off my brain immediately makes up excuses of why I should stay in bed:
“You’re tired.” it says. “You’ll be more productive if you sleep a little longer.”
But I get out of bed.
And it sucks.
And every day it has gotten a bit easier. Day by day. Rep by rep. That’s how it goes.
It’s hard. That’s why most people don’t do it. And having a coach and program laid out for me that I believe in is what keeps me going.
Because nothing is more important than fitness and health.
In the ten weeks since I started OTC, my back pain subsided, I started brimming with energy, and I look better than I have in years
^^^I know that it sounds far-fetched. But none of that is hyperbole. (I have also been receiving treatment for my back throughout.)
Yes, I could build my own workout program but I also know that a world class coach will do a better job than me (and I could probably learn something).
And, honestly, I’ve always thought that if I’m not willing to invest into a coach for my own fitness, how could I possibly expect my clients to invest in me.
Anyway, I’ll stop here. I didn’t plan on writing this and it’s gotten longer than I intended.
It’s actually my 35th birthday today and after I click send I’m logging off to enjoy some time with my family. (*I originally wrote this on my 35th birthday.)
So I’ll end my message to you with this: My OTC experience has been life-changing.
Yes, I’m biased. But this is the truth.
With all of the craziness going on in the world right now, there’s never been a more important time to maximize your health.
OTC will help. And I hope that you join us.
And if you do, who knows, maybe I’ll be on your training team for this round. That’d be pretty cool 🙂
“The training has been going really well, but a win I didn’t expect to gain from this was learning more about programming. It’s been cool to practice it first hand and implement ideas into my own clients’ training.”
