What does coaching look like?

In this short video, I explain what personal coaching looks like, what results you can expect, and what you need to do to get started.


Running Lean Coaching

Weight Loss, Sports Nutrition, Strength and Fitness Coaching for Runners

Get leaner, get stronger, run faster, and run longer.

Any of this sound familiar?

  • You work out every day and you don't lose weight.
  • You train for a marathon and actually GAIN weight.
  • You track all your food, count all your calories and you're STILL overweight.
  • You feel like you’re on the weight loss rollercoaster.
  • Your clothes don’t fit anymore.
  • You don't like that person in the mirror.
  • You feel so out of control sometimes.
  • You keep going back to your old ways.
  • You feel like a failure.
  • You know you're capable but you don’t know what to do.
  • You wish you were setting a better example for your loved ones.
  • You're finally ready to be done with all of the struggling.

The truth is, there’s nothing wrong with you. You don’t lack willpower or self-control. You’re not a failure.

You’ve just been given a lot of bad advice.


I know what it feels like because I've been there.. and I struggled for years.

I tried every diet you can imagine and nothing ever worked long-term.

And all these diets had one thing in common - they all said I should Eat Less and Run More.

The more I ran and the less I ate, the more miserable I was... and the harder it was to lose weight. I was just HUNGRY all the time!

This approach clearly does not work.

You can’t “outrun” a bad diet.

"This program has helped me break through those limiting thoughts and take control over my life."


“Before finding Patrick I was not in a good place – I was struggling mentally, drinking alcohol and eating garbage. I felt like other women were faster and stronger than I was.

This program has helped me break through those limiting thoughts and take control over my life. I started eating real food and lifting weights. I have become more determined overall, I’m a stronger runner, I’m 20 pounds lighter, I ran a 50K, and I even did an Ultra Ragnar!

Trusting the process and gaining the confidence to keep moving forward helped turn this into a lifestyle change. I now have goals that I feel I can meet and feeling weak is in the past! I feel physically and mentally stronger than ever. You are one in a million and you changed my life!”

"I have a completely different mindset about everything in my life. This whole process has been transformational!"


“Before I started the Running Lean program with Patrick, I struggled with consistency and commitment. I really just wanted to feel better in my daily life but I couldn’t figure it out myself.

What I thought I needed was a change in my diet, but what I really needed was help understanding how my mindset was affecting me. That’s exactly what I got from coaching with Patrick. I feel completely empowered from this program and the self-confidence I’ve gained has cascaded into many other aspects of my life.

I’m excelling at work, I’m a better spouse and parent, and I’m fully committed to being the healthiest version of myself. I have more clarity and I feel more engaged with the world around me. I have a completely different mindset about everything in my life. This whole process has been transformational!”

This transformational coaching program is not for everyone.

It's not about a quick "fix". I only work with people who are serious about making permanent changes to their health and fitness.

If you are open to new ideas and new ways of doing things, then this might be a good fit for you.

If you are the kind of person who takes responsibility for your own results, then coaching is a great option for you.

If you are finally ready to transform your body (and your mind) for good, then this is definitely right for you.

If this sounds like you, then you need to apply for coaching now!
