How our online program works
The TEP online program has been created and molded over the last 20 years taking all of Adam's previous prep experience and putting it in to a an online format, whether you're in Denver Colorado or at a distance the program will be the same with weekly check ins through the one of a kind online portal. Adam a certified fitness nutrition specialist with a BS in Wellness and Fitness or one of our Elite Coaches (your option) will send you a questionnaire of all the questions that we need to know to get an individualized program created for you. This program will include everything you need for success such as a detailed menu plan with macro nutrients and food items with options, cardio program, supplement program and a resistance training program designed around your individual body and areas that need the most focus. Once the program is created you will do check-ins weekly and you'll always get a same day check in response with a detailed video response from your coach explaining why. No more short emails from your coach saying "more cardio" with no explanation but actually learn the reasons why your program is evolving. No templates, not now not EVER, your program will be adjusted on a weekly basis based entirely on how the previous weeks progress. Want to learn more?

In season means you are currently getting ready for a show, photo shoot or are just trying to lean out and get that beach body ready! During this phase of training we will focus on losing body fat and improving areas of the body that need the most attention. During this phase you’ll check-in every week so we can ensure your body is not adapting to the current program and make adjustments as necessary based on your weekly progress. There is no templates and this is the reason why we have to have a limited roster of clients as each client gets all the time necessary to make proper adjustments to their plan. We’ll never be the biggest team but we’ll consistently be the best and have been for 7 years straight!
Off season means your in a phase of training where you’re trying to make improvements to your body by adding muscle in target areas as the primary focus. Achieving the body of your dreams takes time, most people focus only on the final 12-16 weeks before a show or photo shoot. One thing to note is you’ll only make significant improvements with the calories to support them and making improvements while preparing for a show in terms of building quality lean mass just isn’t possible with contest prep calorie ranges. This is great for people who need to go through not only the contest prep leaning out portion of programming but also need to build muscle without gaining a significant amount of body fat while doing it. With this program Adam or your coach will guide you through the micro progression off season plan where we'll rev up your metabolism to full speed and help you gain a quality amount of lean mass without the unnecessary amount of body fat that off seasons are usually accompanied with.
Correctional/ Post Show Diet
This is the most important and most overlooked portion of programming. Have you ever seen someone who lost a lot of bodyfat and put it right back on just a month or two later? Yeah, we have too. The reason is people don’t understand and overlook the importance of the correctional phase (reverse diet) of the plan. Once you lose a significant amount of body fat such as contest preparation or a big transformation you will have a reduced metabolic output. This is called adaptive thermogenesis and essentially means your metabolism slows down when you diet with reduced calories required to get stage condition or photo shoot condition lean. What happens is people don’t go through the correctional phase, increase their calories without being aware and gain all the weight back until the metabolism catches up. There’s a way around this and we will go through a post show diet PSD/ Correctional phase for EVERY single client who trains with us. This is so important to Adam that he will not take clients on unless they commit to stick with the program for a minimum of 4 weeks following the show, photo shoot or transformation.
