After my first few months of doing random workouts, I found a trainer to help me with my eating habits. I worked with him for 12 weeks and lost about 50 pounds. I continued the eating habits and workouts that he gave me for a few months after the initial 12 weeks and plateaued in my weight loss.
I knew I needed a serious trainer to help me achieve my goals.This was when I reached out to Kemp. Initially, I was nervous about working with someone completely online. But after my first conversation with him I was excited to start training. Over the past year, I lost 60 pounds. I’ve learned how to have a healthier relationship with food and exercise. Instead of stress eating,the gym is where I go to feel better. I’ve had times that I have struggled over the past year. Kemp has always been there to encourage me. Losing weight is not easy and changing the way you think about food is hard. However the results will always be worth it."
My experience with Kemp has been 100% worth it. When I first contacted him, he gave me the rundown of exactly what he provides from a value perspective and from there he gave me time to digest everything without any pressure. Two days later I signed up and we got started.
Since working with him in February, I’ve lost 30 lbs. I’m the most shredded I’ve ever been and it did it without some drastic cut, cookie cutter diet plan, or any ridiculous restrictions. All I’ve done is track my food, practice moderation, and enjoy the methodical process of losing fat. We just got to the end of my cut and are starting a reverse diet into a very long bulk (my plan is at least two years with some mini cuts if needed). With all the success that his coaching brought me during the cut, I’m excited to see what his coaching can do for me to gain muscle.
If you’re on the fence about Kemp’s coaching there are a few things to consider:
• He’ll customize your program based on your goals. Including macros and training plan.
• He will work with you on more than just training and nutrition. He wants to make sure you work on your sleep, hydration, understanding how to have a better relationship with food, and how supplementation can be useful in your diet (only if everything else is on point).
• He’s accessible almost anytime and will respond as quickly as he can.
• He has weekly check-ins to help keep you on track.
• If you’re nervous about online coaching, just remember what I said above (HE’S ACCESSIBLE ALMOST ANYTIME) I.e. if you have a form question - send him a video and he can help you correct it. If you have a question about food (if you’re at a restaurant or someone gave you some food) send him a picture/link of the menu or food you’re considering eating and he will help you track the food! If the food you want doesn’t fit your macros he will help you plan out how to still enjoy that particular food item or find a better solution for you in order to stay on track with your goals.
• The very last thing that you need to consider is that YOU WILL ONLY GET OUT OF HIS COACHING WHAT YOU PUT INTO IT. Remember, he’s just guiding you. It’s up to you to commit, make smart decisions, and take action with the plan that he gives you.
All I can say is 10/10 times I would recommend Kemp to anyone thinking about coaching for nutrition and training purposes!
I’ve been fortunate enough not only to get daily advice from Will, but also to become one of his clients. His approach to balancing a healthy lifestyle of nutrition and training is practical, optimal, and completely beneficial. I respect that he treats everyone with respect and realism, even if that means handing out harder-hitting truths to avoid beating around the bush with the “everyone gets an A for effort” approach to his clientele. And let’s be honest, we all need to get knocked down a little at times to grow stronger, and Will’s damn good at what he’s passionate about: Helping people.
As a Type-1 Diabetic I’ve always been worried about working with a trainer. While a balanced diet and proper training routine can be easily applied with basic principles, the process of fat loss, muscle growth, and recovery are all more complicated for diabetes. The thing is, Will doesn’t just provide me with those basic and effective principles to help me attain my goals. His attention to detail regarding my health as a diabetic is always his top priority, ensuring that everything in and out of the gym is conducive to managing my condition.
Calling him a cut above the rest, a diamond in the rough, or anything related would be doing him a disservice. Will is an amazing trainer and individual that I would absolutely recommend working with."
I hit a point in my life where I was not happy with who I saw in the mirror, both physically and mentally. I knew I needed to make a change. It was not who, deep down, I knew I was and wanted to be. The work that I’ve done with Will has not only changed my body but it’s changed my mind - the way I approach any hurdle in my personal and professional life. Changing your body will as a result change your mind.
I started working with Will, literally, at the start of a national pandemic. The gyms were shutting down, you couldn’t go out of your home, my kids were out of school and had to be home schooled virtually - literal shit show - every monkey wrench possible was being thrown at me, almost mocking me as if to say, “oh you think you can do this, ok well here try it now - oh you’re still doing it, well here now try”…it was absurd - but a challenge - and I’ve always loved a challenge - but I could not have weathered the storm without Will’s help. The education I’ve received from him on training and nutrition is something I will have for the rest of my life.
Will could not make the process easier (on his end) - the hard part is on you, just DO IT. Don’t make excuses, just listen to the man and DO IT. Listen, we all know, there will ALWAYS be an excuse but knowing that you have Will on your side to help you and be accountable to hopefully will give you the extra support you need to push that excuse aside and keep your eyes on the prize…it did for me.
Having someone like Will always just a text away is something that I don’t think you can get anywhere else. Literally I’ve texted him sitting out at a restaurant, not knowing what to do, or what to order so that I don’t completely de rail all my progress, and he has gotten back to me with great options that keep me on track while not making me feel like I have to make a “weirdo order" while I”m out with friends or family.
If you are even thinking about working with Will just do it. DO IT. It’s the best decision you’ll ever make. I know it was for me."
To put that in perspective, let me explain what my situation was like before working with Will. Starting in high school, I became extremely interested in fitness and health. I was overweight, read a few books, and then lost a majority of my “baby fat.” It sounds great! I had finally lost weight. However, I had no muscle tone. So I researched a few more things and got in fantastic shape. This, coupled with athletics, allowed me to perform well enough to receive a Division I football scholarship. Unfortunately, my first year in school I tore my hip labrum. Instead of getting surgery, I decided to no longer play football and bypassed the surgery. I became out of shape from the injury and was just simply lost. I had tried the previous things I did before to get in shape, but they weren’t working. I chose to find some outside help.
After looking for weeks on social media (Instagram) and weeding out the awful excuses for people who think they’re fitness coaches, I found Will and a few other coaches that knew what they were talking about. I asked around, and Will had the best personality / reasonable price point out of any of them. We got started right away and haven’t looked back since.
I used to have constant hip and back pain from deep squatting with my torn labrum, but with Will’s well-rounded programming, I haven’t felt that pain IN MONTHS. The main reason is that Will makes sure to always stay in contact with me and does whatever he can to make sure to answer any questions I have. This consistent contact has led to me sending him constant form videos over the past several months and slowly progressing and fixing my form. There will always be hiccups when working strictly online, such as miscommunication, but my form has improved DRASTICALLY thanks to Will. Deadlifts, squats, core workouts, calf workouts, etc., I have seen every part of my body improve thanks to the changes Will has made in my routine. I used to gruel through deadlifts, and now I enjoy and look forward to them (still really hate squats though).
It doesn’t just stop at lifting; Will has a great knowledge of nutrition. I feel like all, or most of my micronutrient needs are being met. Currently, Will has me supplementing with a superfoods combo, multi-vitamin, fish oil, turmeric, and black pepper. The first three help fill the gaps in my diet and my favorite, the turmeric, drastically cuts down on inflammation, which has all but erased my daily hip/surgically repaired arthritis finger pain. Adding the black pepper to my morning superfoods combo and heavy meal combos have mostly eliminated the gastric distress that I previously had, and I feel has helped my metabolism and absorption.
To add to that, I struggle with chronic GERD, specifically from dairy products. I discussed this with Will and told me to take a week or two off of dairy and then SLOWLY re-introduce it into my diet. Sure enough, my episodes of GERD with dairy products have also decreased, and I can enjoy dairy again.
This is turning into a novel, but I need to touch on one more thing. What makes Will stand out from the rest is his personality and realness. Working with him has made me realize that I am doing this FOR ME and no one else. I have messed up on my diet several times and thought it would be the end. Will assured me that my hiccups were just that, hiccups. Those hiccups are all part of a lifestyle of balance and moderation. I am healthier and happier than I have been in a while and my self-confidence has increased dramatically. I enjoy donuts from time to time, drink occasionally, and feel amazing doing it. The best part is, I see my numbers on the scale and calipers stay consistent in one direction WHILE DOING THOSE THINGS. I’m able to go out on dates and have hardly any fluctuation in the scale. To me, that is why working with Will is the right choice. It’s not just about getting your body right, it’s about getting your body and lifestyle to supplement one another. If your motivated, I highly recommend working with Will and learning from him. Truly a great guy and a great coach."
