The PLT Community exists more than just online, it's very real & united with a common bond of health, fitness and well being through nutrition & fitness.
We are from all corners of the globe, from China to USA, Australia to London, Spain to Hong Kong. Our community works together, regularly getting out of our comfort zones, trying new things, training hard, living, loving, laughing; supporting one another at every step of the way.
We were excited to announce in January that all PLT nutrition plans now include a FREE 13 Week Training Plan and a FREE Recipe eBook. Since creating PLT, we have always believed in giving as much away for FREE as we possibly can. We don’t believe the materials we share with clients are intellectual property and we have always been open to sharing and making them publicly available.
Whilst we offer a personal training/fitness coaching service, the service fees lie as usual with the coaching & individualized programming. Many clients purchase Nutrition coaching and ask about training & we wanted all our clients to have a training program available to them to optimize their nutrition. We plan to also roll-out home based and dumbbell/barbell specific FREE templates later this year!
Our recipe collection was put together by our very own food guru, Coach Patti, who has a great knack for creating simply, healthy low calorie meals that are adaptable to anyone's goals and plans. The recipes are as easy as 1-2-3 as they only have 3 easy steps each. We hope to add to this collection with a Volume 2 in the near future, stay tuned!
The PLT Community was well represented at the Texas State Weightlifting Championship in Austin and Coach Patti was there to support our clients competing as well as catch up with some other PLT clients there to watch.
We are proud of all our lifters competing out of Bluewave Weightlifting, special congratulations to Kevin Wiseman who took Gold in his weight class and Stanley Bastian who took Silver in his! Weight class sport athletes follow very strict nutrition plans and the week leading up to competition is a time of great intensity as weigh-in looms. Their coaches are in constant contact with them and we feel PLT offers a unique coach/client partnership that provides the athlete with so much more than nutritional guidance.
Coach Paul was out about in Ohio this month, meeting up with what we affectionately refer to as our CrossFit Steel Corners Crew! A great Saturday morning CrossFit workout followed by breakfast was, as always, full of hugs and non stop talking as everyone tried to catch up and talk about a little of everything from their awesome families to wanting new PLT gear to represent their awesome community!
At PLT we feel strongly about getting out and meeting our clients face to face as much as we can; being that we are a global company, we are limited by distance, but we make it work as often as possible!
As is always the case, when we ask our community to have a little fun with something, they jump in with two feet! This month we kicked off "Food Wednesday's" asking our members to post all day on Wednesday with pictures of the food they love to enjoy on their PLT plan and they absolutely ran away with the idea! So many inspiring meal ideas with simple, easy directions/ingredient lists and the nutritional information included as well! Each week it seemed everyone was looking forward to sharing more of their food and we were just blown away week after week!
Our incredible community is everywhere; running, skiing, flexing for fun on Fridays, competing, playing with grandkids, racing in 5k's, lifting, dancing, you name it, they are out there being active and always, always smiling!
The level of support they give one another on a daily basis is remarkable and heart warming. On different journeys but together always....

A year ago today PLT Nutrition & Fitness was born, and its been a truly incredible year...
Watching the review video honestly had me teary & mouth open in wonder - did we really do all that?
During our 1st year, we grew to 7 coaches and more than 1100 clients in 27 countries, took 2 clients to the CrossFit Games, 3 clients represented their country at Olympic Weightlifting & some won OCR races; mainly though we helped our clients achieve their goals.
We know from our data the 3 most common reasons for clients joining PLT are to ‘lose a little weight’ to ‘feel better in their clothes’ & to ‘learn about nutrition’.
PLT is focused on being a nutrition company; many clients want to lose weight, but our focus remains to provide healthy solutions to weight loss, muscle gain & athletic performance - we will never be a weight loss company per se & adopt some of the practices used by other companies. We believe in health partnerships with our clients and we teach good nutrition with a healthy balance of fun.
Our strong code of conduct and business charter, controls how we conduct our work. We will never be able, nor want, to support high numbers of clients because our charter is against elements of industry automation and certainly against cheerleading, we are a hands on company with very real coaching.
We pride ourselves on our client interactions & connections, every client's plan is unique and we are very proactive with calorie adjustments & strategies.
It’s been tough at times, staggeringly so, but I’m truly grateful for the love and support system around me. From my family, who have to deal with me always seemingly working, to our coaches who have to deal with my continual improvements/enhancements/changes to processes - I thank you
To our clients; I’d like to thank each of you personally for your investment in our vision.
Year 1 we kinda did ok...
Here’s to Year 2
What can you expect in 2020?
Plus lots & lots more clients being awesome, achieving goals and connecting, exercising, drinking coffee & being a real community!
Continuous Effort 💛
The PLT Community exists more than just online, it's very real & united through a common bond of health, fitness and well being.
