Nutrition Client

SD Evolution provides me with all of the tools and resources that I need to be successful. The support and consistent follow up from Ciana has exceeded my expectations and helped me to achieve results.The daily check ins which held me accountable and the weekly check in messages really made me feel like I wasn’t doing this alone. I have learned how much food and protein I need to eat during the day to keep my body nourished.

Kaitlyn York

Nutrition Client

I chose SDE because they get people the transformations they are looking for when it comes to their nutrition habits. I like that they really emphasize that it takes time for changes to happen and don’t promote their business as a quick fix and that tracking macros is some sort of magic pill!I have learned a lot about my body and that I can eat what feels like a lot of food and not gain weight, but I can still lose weight! Tracking my macros was also new to me (I came with no experience) so I have learned a lot of hacks to make it easier which is nice because I always thought it would be stressful. It actually makes your life a lot easier! My lifestyle habits have improved as far as nutrition goes and I have a really good relationship with food knowing that I’m not overeating or under eating.My experience has been educational and personable. I can tell that Ciana truly does care about me and helping me reach my goals!

Vanessa Avedisian

Training + Nutrition Client

I used to struggle with consistency, accountability and confidence. Since working with SDE, I have absolutely transformed mentally and physically. I have learned SO much from Alessandra and Anna! The mental change is the biggest part. Not only have they taught me so much, but I look at a lot of aspects in my life a different way, For the first time in my life I actually feel confident in myself and in how I look. I used to think I needed to eat less and do cardio to “look better.” Who knew eating 2200 cals and lifting 4x/week would make you look and feel like a badass. At the end of the day, that’s priceless. I literally tell all of my friends this has been life-changing and I have absolutely zero regrets!

Evelyn Gayle

Training + Nutrition Client, student & Nurse

I have been working with SDE since April of 2016, so over 5 years now! Before, ​​I was struggling with nutrition and understanding training blocks, I was really interested in competition for powerlifting. I also struggled with self confidence and accepting my body for its wonderful strength and shape. So over almost 5 years working with SD Evolution – I have gone through planned cycles of weight loss, weight gain and successful maintenance. I’ve competed in powerlifting meets and qualified for USAPL Jr Raw Nationals, navigated through a fractured back and built my strength back up after injury and sickness. At this moment I weigh about the same as I did my senior year in high school however my body composition is completely different! I look and feel strong, my shape is athletic and my clothes fit well. In the gym my performance is great now that I am adequately fed and understand rest is essential for recovery. My mindset has also changed so much from the beginning days of my journey. I don’t obsess over my food or lose time with family and friends by stressing out about my schedule for training. I’ve learned how to adapt my training to fit multiple seasons of my life, my mindset is more fluid, adaptable, and I focus on long term goals. It is a priceless investment into your physical and mental growth as a person with a team that truly cares about quality, performance, and you as an individual.

Jamie Held

Training + Nutrition Client

Where do I begin! I now embrace eating all the food, especially carbs! Eating to fuel my workouts and feel my best with high energy. Having the ability to enjoy a vacation or an event and not let it ruin my progress. Not letting the scale ruin my day and realizing why it  may be up, importance of biofeedback affecting how we feel. My favorite part of working with SDE is being held accountable and for the knowledge I’ve learned over the years. I’m in such a different place than I was before it’s incredible. I used to be so restrictive and now I let myself live and I don’t freak out and let it derail me. I have experienced body comp changes 100%, I’m at a very similar BW to when I began, but look totally different. I have so much more energy in everyday life. PR’s have definitely come over the years. Mindset shift to being able to enjoy myself and not feel out of control. SD Evolution has given me all the knowledge and power to be able to live an emotionally, mentally, and physically healthy and sustainable lifestyle!

Ashley Olivier

Training + Nutrition Client

Before working with SDE, I was struggling with honestly…everything! I lost around 45lbs on my own and wanted to look more toned and I was basically starving myself to try to lose more weight to achieve my goals. I had no idea how to sustainably lose weight, achieve my goals, maintain a healthy lifestyle and I needed guidance. Since then, I have gained a world of knowledge- supplements, tracking macros, importance of factors in my life that I would never even think of that affect the scale, making daily habits, holding myself accountable, gaining confidence in myself and my body, feeling comfortable in a bathing suit, accepting that weight gain is NOT a bad thing and overall I have gained mindfulness. I have also gained so much more the list goes on forever! Anna has been very helpful with this next phase we are in! She has given me ideas for snacks which I was struggling big time. She has pushed me so much with training and I am loving it! She is always welcoming for any questions and always educates me about the “why” behind it versus just saying we are “upping protein”. I can tell she cares and my overall favorite part is the education I receive! So far I have experienced: 

– body composition is changing currently!

– PRs like crazy: almost every week 

– Better mental health 

– increase in daily steps 

– increase in daily water oz

– better sleep

– overall happiness has increased 

Working with SDE is truly a life changing experience with the most caring people in which they educate you and guide you on how to have a sustainable lifestyle for your specific needs. 

Reena Kelly

Training + Nutrition Client

Before finding SDE, I needed help, desperately! I was tired of yo-yo’ing eating more and less and not seeing any tangible progress. I really liked the simple and straightforward messaging from them and decided it would be a good fit after our first call. Since working with them, I’ve learned how much I was likely sabotaging my own progress from sheer lack of understanding about nutrition, training and biofeedback. I needed more food, more/better sleep, more rest, more time for myself and overall less time focusing on the scale. I’m still learning but the past 6 months have taught me so much! I love that I’ve gotten to work with Josh and Ciana. They both have been so amazing and really consistent in their messaging. I love that Josh pushed me to change small things in my daily habits with a goal at the long term. Ciana has just continued that and has been supportive and encouraging from the very beginning. I’m really loving the experience working with Ciana esp in this phase of my life where there’s a lot of transition. Get ready to see what  grasping the basics can do but be prepared to put in the work! Don’t forget to ask questions and be honest and vulnerable about your struggles. It’s worth it!

Brianne Melillo

Training + Nutrition Client of 5+ years

The SD team provides positive personal coaching, where they alter your programs and macros as needed depending on biofeedback not only for you to reach your fitness goals but goals in all aspects to create a happy healthy lifestyle you will actually enjoy being a part of! My life has completely changed and turned around for the best! I now am past all of my eating disorders and thoroughly enjoy the macro lifestyle. I think I’m at my strongest with lifting as well and it makes me feel good and energized. This has carried on to my daily activities and choices for the better. I make healthier decisions, park farther away, look for ways to workout other than the gym that will better me and focus a lot more on mindfulness and not only physical appearance. They don’t only look at macros and programming, but look into everything as a whole. Ciana truly cares about what else is going on in your life and asks questions in order to maximize the SD Evolution experience. She’s easy to talk to and is super motivating!

Meghan B.

Nutrition Client + Competitive Runner

I’d never reached out to someone for help with nutrition, and frankly hadn’t seen the need to previously. But hitting 40 and then living the pandemic life pushed me over the edge. I just was no longer comfortable with the way I felt and the way my clothes were fitting. There is so much conflicting information out there about the “right” way to lose weight. And more than just losing weight for the short term, I wanted to learn how I could reshape the way I thought about nutrition long-term so that I could maintain in a comfortable place without going back and forth, despite getting older. I also have specific athletic goals and am not willing to sacrifice health and performance. Needless to say, SDE’s message about cutting on the most calories you can, making slow changes, and thinking long term resonated.

I’ve learned a lot in the last six months about how to cut effectively and I didn’t starve or deprive myself on vacations, during milestones or celebrations along the way. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with @sd_evolution as we navigate the reverse phase so I can maintain the gains I’ve realized.”

Samantha Stevens

Nutrition Only

I had said before but I followed Alessandra and Josh YEARS before I pulled the trigger, and finally when I got engaged decided it was time to invest. I honestly thought I’d only stick with it a few months but I’m here to tell all the current and future clients of SD Evolution that a year was so important for me to not only meet but MAINTAIN my goals.

I lost 20 pounds working with @joshscutnik focusing on mostly nutrition and not even really worrying too much about training. I NEVER thought I could maintain 20lbs lighter! I swore I was stuck forever being unhappy with my weight and body comp.

I’m truthfully in the best shape of my life heading into my wedding in just a month. We did two cuts and two reverse diets and that was CRUCIAL for me. I learned the proper amount of protein, carbs, fats, fiber, water, and sodium my body needs to keep energy high, stress low and be strong in the gym.

It’s a little nerve-wracking coming off after 14 months of being held accountable, but based on everything I learned, where I got to maintenance with Josh, and now being able to intuitively eat/eyeball portions and meals–I feel super confident that I can maintain all the progress we’ve made for years to come. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made for ME in a long time.

Technically I only worked with Josh, but my fiancé reaped the benefits of balanced meals.”

Malavika (Mali) Raman

Nutrition Client

I wish I had discovered you years ago, I never realized that there was a way to have a healthy relationship to food that could last a lifetime. Working with SDE would have saved me from years to disordered eating. I look better, feel better and I’m stronger and improving every day! I look forward to my nutrition and training routines and can see myself living this way for a long time. Anna is so positive. I love hearing her weekly checkins. I’m always motivated to do better after I hear her message. I didn’t think I would be able to eat a high protein diet as a vegetarian but she helped me navigate this and I’m now consuming 130-140g protein per day!

Lindsay Shiek

Training + Nutrition Client

Accountability and consistency are the two reasons why I wanted to work with SDE. I didn’t know how to calculate my macros and wanted someone to hold me accountable week after week. Anna is very knowledgeable. She knows when she needs to encourage me to give myself a little grace and also when to request I focus on something new for the week. She has been patient while I navigated my way through this first month. I’m excited to keep working with her and get more knowledge for myself and keep getting better. I typically am really hard on myself and expect myself to be perfect. She has helped me increase my mental health towards myself more than anything else thus far which has helped me continue to push forward. Working with SD Evolution is more than just going through the motions. They help set you up to live a healthy and balanced life in such a better way than you would ever expect from finding coaching from someone you’ve never actually met.

Callah Racine

Nutrition Client

I have been working with Coach Anna for 3 months now and plan to stay on board long-term. I needed accountability and guidance and since I started coaching I feel more confident in my body and also in my food choices. I have a much better and balanced relationship with food after only 3 months. My favorite part is that working with Anna is like talking to a friend. She makes me super comfortable and I’m never afraid to ask questions. SDE is very knowledgeable, professional, and approachable. They are dedicated to truly improving the lives of their clients.

Whitney Morris

Nutrition Client

I have been working with SDE since April 2021, and before working with them I was struggling with accountability, macros + finding balance. Since then, I have gained so much! First and foremost, that I can eat quite a bit of food and not gain weight! I don’t have to kill myself in the gym 7 days a week, I have grace for myself when I don’t eat EXACTLY to a T, eat the most “healthy” foods or hit my macros exactly everyday. Sleeeeeep and rest! Who knew these were things a human needed consistently and for more than 5 hours? Haha, but most importantly, getting into a healthy lifestyle is a PROCESS, these days I think a lot of us want a quick fix and to change overnight which isn’t how it works. I get just a lil better everyday, and that’s what counts. To sum it all up in one sentence: you will never regret working with them!

 

Sarah Galan

Training + Nutrition Client

Before I worked with SD Evolution, I was struggling with consistency with my nutrition and understanding what I need to do in the gym and at home in order to see the results I was desiring. I chose 1:1 Coaching because I really wanted to have someone that I would be able to learn from and who I would be able to ask questions when I was struggling. I also wanted to do 1:1 because I like that you guys make my training programs for me. I like that because I don’t have to worry about what I am doing in the gym as it is all written out and I know that I am going to get a great workout from it. Additionally, it almost holds me accountable and pushes me to reach my desired goals more because I have someone in my corner who is rooting for me just as much as I am rooting for myself. I have not felt this good in a long time! Not just health wise but overall happiness as well. I feel really strong and I now understand how important proper nutrition and sleep is in making my body feel good. I also have such a better relationship with the scale. I used to get really discouraged when the number would fluctuate and now it doesn’t bother me anymore as long as I physically am feeling good.

Ciana is an amazing coach! Honestly I can’t pick a favorite because there are so many great things. She responds back so quickly which is amazing because if I need feedback I am not waiting a week to get it. She is always so supportive and is always trying to help me get closer to my goals and feel my best. She not only gives good recommendations in terms of training and nutrition programs but also recommendations on other things. For example I told her how I wanted to get a new scale because I was always using my roommates. She sent me a link to the one that she has and really likes I ended up getting it and loved it! She really pays attention to the small things that I feel like a lot of other coaches wouldn’t. I am so grateful to have her as my coach!

I have noticed that I have gotten a lot more toned and am now able to lift weight that I was not able to at the start of my training. I never feel bloated anymore and have such a healthier relationship with nutrition. I don’t restrict myself from things I enjoy, I have learned how to incorporate them with moderation. I also love going to the gym now. I never enjoyed it before because I thought I needed to be there for 1-2 hours in order to see results when that not the case. Working with SD Evolution is like having another family, from the coaching to the Facebook page where you can communicate with others going through the same nutrition and training learning experience as you, it is an amazing thing to be apart of.  

Ryan Langer

Training + Nutrition Client

Working with Ciana over the past five weeks has led to so many positive internal changes for me. I’m listening to the audio check-in message she just sent me for the week and it is so personalized and customized to me and I’m really grateful. I am so grateful for her thoughtful suggestions and tips while she is also so positive and consistently celebrating things I’m happy about with me. She remembers little details and things from previous check-ins and it makes a difference. I was a little hesitant when you first matched me with her because one thing I loved about SD Evolution was the fact that you are both parents or around my age level but I decided to just go with it and trust the process. I’m so glad I did because she is an absolutely amazing coach. Thanks for making this connection !!

Edna Pierce

Training + Nutrition Client & Working Mother

Before SD evolution, I was spending hours at the gym and was working out six times a week. I had that mentality that more was better and I wanted to do alllll the exercises. But I wasn’t doing the progressive overload. In my head, I thought doing different exercises every time I went to the gym was what was going to help me achieve the look I was seeking. Although I enjoy going to the gym (on most days), I just didn’t have the desire to be there that long anymore. I was looking to start a family and just wanted to be more efficient with my time!

I had been following SDE for some time and decided to just sign up. I can’t lie and say that I started following my workout plan as soon as they sent them to me. When I got my first plan, I thought, “What, that’s it! No way!” It took me about 6 weeks to be okay with actually completing my workout programs just as they laid them out. Because remember, I thought more was better! So I would do the exercises on my plan and then some extra stuff (I know, I know why hire a coach if I’m still going to do what I want). But change doesn’t happen overnight and it took me some time to finally trust them and the process and to realize that doing more DOES NOT mean more GAINZ!

Following their plans and working out anywhere from 50 minutes to about an hour and 15 mins five times a week has helped me grow more muscle than ever before! Learning to be patient, learning to trust the progressive overload, learning that doing more does not mean more gainz, and learning to trust my coaches has helped me put on more muscle than I have ever had.

I am 9 months postpartum and I REALLY enjoy having my workouts planned out for me. It takes the thinking out of what I am going to do today and it feels great to get a great workout in less than an hour on most days!! It frees up more time to spend with my beautiful baby girl! Not to mention it has also helped me gain more muscle, which has always been one of my goals!

Cassandra Maxwell

Mom of 2, CrossFit Trainer

I started working with SD Evolution in early in May 2020. I have been doing CrossFit for the last couple of years and prior to that I spent time bouncing through a variety of different workouts with the mindset of “if I am not dying during this workout I am not doing it right,” which is inevitably why I never have gotten the results that I felt that I should have.

I have been a personal trainer for the last 7 years and during that time I never struggled helping my clients get the results that they wanted but I have fallen short in my own personal goals. Through the duration of the last 7 weeks I have learned a VAST amount about my body. I was underfeeding and over working. Crossfit is truly a passion of mine but my focus needed to shift a bit to be able to have the true strength I want without ‘kipping’ my way through workouts. I was at a plateau on so many different lifts and this coaching experience has really brought me so much awareness. My body had a major lack of fuel (food) and consistency. They helped me realize that I don’t have to eat 100% clean 24/7, which was what I pretty much used to do and I got burnt out with food so I just wouldn’t eat instead of finding something that actually appealed to me. 

I could go on for days about the knowledge and awareness this whole process has brought me but i’ll stop with this; I am extremely thankful for this opportunity and cannot wait to see where I am in another 8 weeks!

Brittany Giugno

Training + Nutrition Client

 Right before working with SD evolution, I competed in a bodybuilding competition. After completing the competition, I realized that I could not sustain that lifestyle. I spiraled out of control diet-wise, and just ate whatever I wanted whenever I wanted.  I followed such a strict diet plan for so long that I was just over it. I was packing on rapidly, and my relationship with food was so unhealthy. I went from being a twig to just blowing up right before my eyes. I had no idea what to do, but I did know that I didn’t want to just be told what to do anymore. I was still working out regularly, but I did not look like it. 

 

I then picked up kickboxing as a hobby and became certified to teach it. Literally, no type of work out was helping me. I was eating about 1,300 calories a day if that, and working out like crazyyyyy. I knew how to lose weight quickly by just not eating a lot and doing a ton of cardio, but I couldn’t maintain how I wanted to look once I stopped doing that. I had enough, and right when I needed it, I stumbled on SDE! I fell in love with their approach to flexible dieting and having a proper fitness routine and diet fit into your lifestyle. I love all types of food! I love cooking, going out to eat, and drinking wine. Most diets require you to cut out things like carbs and alcohol to lose weight. I can’t live a life without pasta and a nice glass of red wine! 

SDE’s philosophy is never about cutting things out, but instead, tracking macros and helping you make the best choices. After bodybuilding and trying to rewire my brain, I needed an approach like this. I can follow directions if a diet plan was just spat out at me, but I needed to LEARN about proper nutrition. 

When I realized I could have all the things I loved while looking the way I want, I immediately signed up to have them help me on this journey. I’ve learned SO much about proper nutrition, how to use food as fuel, how to portion control, and ditch the “good” and “bad” food mentality. I also learned that the scale is only ONE tool in weight loss, and it is not the end all be all. I used to cry when I stepped on a scale, and with the help of coaching, I can understand what makes the scale go up and down, and not stress about it. 

Believe it or not, in the photos, there is only a few pounds of weight difference. I’ve learned that carbs do not make you fat, and a 28 year old woman should not eat 1,300 calories a day. In fact I eat about 2,000 or more calories a day. I’ve learned about the importance of fiber in your diet, how to track macros, and how to fit everything I want in my day without overdoing it. My mental and physical state has improved tremendously since I started working with SDE about 2 years ago.

Mary Johnson

Nutrition Client (postpartum)

I was 6 months postpartum when I started working with Alessandra. I had been working slowly on regaining strength, but still had quite a bit of SI joint pain from the pregnancy and was struggling with energy levels. I had a feeling that nutrition was the missing piece to feeling better – so I took the plunge and it was the best decision I’ve ever made!

 

As someone who struggled with an Eating Disorder earlier in life, I was very nervous about tracking macros and being more intentional about food. But from the very beginning, Alessandra ensured that she would support and guide me through the process – and she‘s done that…and more. I have lost 11 lbs in 5 months; but more importantly, I’ve learned that eating MORE is actually ok! I have never once felt hungry along this process, and I’ve never felt restricted by what I could/couldn’t eat. Alessandra has always been very clear that I should make the food choices that I want, and never feel guilty about it along the way. As a result, I’m the leanest and fittest of my life and I’ve had a complete mindset shift about how I approach nutrition and food. I couldn’t recommend Alessandra and SD Evolution more!

Steve Venice

Training + Nutrition Client

My daughter joined SD Evolution at the beginning of the year and after a few months the change in her body was noticeable. So much so, that even though I went to gym on a regular basis I thought I’d give them a try. In just 4 short months I could also see a change in my body. I’ve worked with them only on line and the feedback and attention they give to my questions has been a huge reason for my success. They are constantly encouraging and come up with unique workouts that push me, but make me feel great afterwards. They are also extremely helpful with my meal plans, giving me ideas on how to hit my numbers. Their on line presence is just as good as being with them in person! I just turned 50 a couple of weeks ago and can say I am in the best shape I’ve ever been in, thanks to their help!

Samantha Lombardo

Nutrition Cient

I decided to work with Josh and Alessandra because I have been competing in local power lifting meets for about 6 years now and I wasn’t as strong as I felt I should be. I wasn’t making much progress and it was because my diet was terrible. I knew the right foods to eat, but I didn’t know how much of everything I should be eating. I heard of SD-Evolution through my gym and I started following Alessandra on Instagram and was really impressed on how she changed her body with food. At the time I believe she was on a massing phase and she was putting on weight, staying lean and getting stronger and I wanted to do two of those things (get leaner and stronger). In April 2017 I signed up because I was competing in June and really wanted to give it everything I had. When I joined I weighed 155lb (I am 5’5”), I got down to 148lb and had the best meet of my life. I felt amazing, I felt strong and I was really happy with the way I looked. It is now September 2017 and my body weight has been averaging about 146lb each week and I eat around 2000 calories per day. I couldn’t be happier with my results and the support I get from Josh and Alessandra. The “If it fits your Macros” lifestyle is really working well for me and they are setting me up to be successful for the long run.

Meagan Rickabaugh

Training + Nutrition Client

Deciding to join the SD Evolution Team was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I had just been dipping my toes into the world of power lifting and then my love and passion for the sport grew tremendously. I knew I needed to take my own skills and knowledge to the next level which led me to SD Evolution. Their support, professionalism and knowledge is the real deal, truly the whole package! I know that they genuinely care about me as a person and that I am not just another number, this for me is the best quality of all. I have seen more success in the past few months that we have been working together than ever before. I know that wherever I decide I want my goals to go they will be there to help guide and support me. I have full confidence in their abilities and couldn’t be happier to be a part of the team!

Cristina Connor

Training + Nutrition Client

I’ve made more progress in my fitness goals with SD Evolution over 5 months than I did on my own for the past 5 years. I was already tracking calories and writing my own workout plans, but I was barely making any noticeable or sustainable progress. Working with Josh and Alessandra provided me with the accountability, focus and motivation to finally execute on my fitness goals. SD Evolution’s nutrition and strength plans are the best investments I’ve ever made in my fitness journey. I highly recommend Josh and Alessandra’s services to anyone, but especially to those who like me, are looking for some help to break through your fitness plateau.

Erika Lee

Training + Nutrition Client

I’ve been working with team SD Evolution for 8 months now. Before working with them, I obviously loved fitness but I was stuck in how to progress. Since joining the team, I have gained a better outlook on overall health and how important consistency is. I’ve also learned that the weight on the bar isn’t the end all be all. My overall experience has been great and I am continuing to grow overall in personal health and learning more about how my body works and what it needs.

Jackie St. Louis

Training + Nutrition Client

After being with Josh and Alessandra for 1 year, I have learned how to stay focused by having a structured program. Having one-month training programs gives me enough time to improve at new exercises, especially ones that aren’t my favorites. It’s good to get outside my comfort zone and work on areas of weakness! I’ve also learned how important it is to carve out time for self-care.

My favorite part about coaching is that they really take the time to stay invested in more than just my numbers. They are always on my side and provide encouragement, reinforcement, and push me when I’m being a total wimp and slacker. They have been really positive as I work through an injury that has sidelined me from my favorite things, and I needed that more than I realized!

Josh and Alessandra’s positivity and push for overall improvement of my health is contagious!

Kristin Pomarenski

Training + Nutrition Client

I started working with Josh and Alessandra because they seemed genuine, real and focused on overall health, not just weightloss. Over the past 5 months of working with them, I’ve gained a lot of self-confidence and know that my body can give me the feedback I need. I’ve lost 10 pounds so far! If I could sum up my experience using one word it would be life-changing!

Emma Wieduwilt

Training + Nutrition Client

I’ve been working with SD Evolution for just under two years now! I’ve gained a whole new perspective on health and nutrition, not to mention the gains in the gym. My favorite part about their coaching is their positivity, knowledge and experience. Over the past 18 months, I’ve transformed how I look at myself, my body, and life in general. I’ve gone through all phases of dieting and learned to love all stages. Most notably I’ve added over 100lbs to my deadlift, 50lbs to my squat, and 35lbs to my bench!!

Nicole Leger

Training + Nutrition Client

I knew I needed accountability and guidance so I joined team SD Evolution and have been with them for 9 months now. I’ve lost 8 lbs on this cut, but have gained a whole new mindset when it comes to cardio and food! I now understand that low carb is not what my body needs and the increase in calories has been life changing! I have such an improved relationship with food and I have never been happier in life. I am completely fueled and the workouts they program are so great!

Amy Risner

Training + Nutrition Client

6 months ago, I thought things were going pretty well with my fitness but then I “met” Alessandra and Josh. I have gained self-confidence in myself and in each and every one of my lifts in the gym. I’ve lost body fat and I’m hitting PR’s weekly. If I could sum up my experience it would be, “Money well spent!!”

Tracy Liddell

Training + Nutrition

I have learned that food is not the enemy. That it is there to fuel you. That its OK to miss the gym if you’re not there mentally or too stressed out. To RELAX and enjoy life. Working out to look good is one thing….but working out as part of a healthy lifestyle….enjoying moments with friends and family and keeping healthy (body and mind) overall is the best kind of fitness.

What I love about their coaching is that I am accountable for what I do/don’t do. They provide the tools we need….but it’s me that has to put in the work. So if I’m not seeing results something in MY life isn’t working..eating .habits/sleep/stress. They are walking living proof that if we put the effort in and have patience we will see the results were after.

This program has been life changing! Physically, mentally + spiritually.

Zuhal Elhan

Training + Nutrition Client

After being on team SD Evolution for over a year, I have learned that fitness should fit my lifestyle, not dictate it. I was clueless about proper training and nutrition before working with Josh and Alessandra and my favorite part about their coaching is the constant positive response even when things don’t go perfectly on my end. They never make me feel bad about what I feel to be a failure but still push me to be better in an encouraging manner.

Valerie Enriquez

Training + Nutrition Client

Before working with this team, my nutrition was a nightmare. I was too focused on weight loss and avoiding certain foods because they were labeled “bad foods”. Training consisted of cardio every day because again… weight loss was the goal. My relationship with food and working out wasn’t healthy and in my mind eating less+hours of cardio=happiness and weight loss. I didn’t realize how upside down my mind process was until I started working with SDE.

Since joining the team, I have learned to love my self and my body. I learned that being strong mentally and physically is rewarding in so many ways. There are no such things as “bad foods”. My mindset on food and working around took a complete 180 after being with SDE. I’m at a point in my journey where I can enjoy going out to eat at restaurants, going out to family parties, BBQs and eating dessert and just living in the moment. This has been a life-altering experience for me. This is something that is sustainable and not just a temporary “diet” phase.

The best part about their coaching is accessibility to them is always available. I always get a response when I have a question or concern and all the encouragement I receive when I’ve had a bad day or week.

I was very uneducated when it came to training and nutrition before working with SD Evolution. I loved it, I just didn’t know how to maintain it, or adjust things.

I have learned that its ok to fall off track….. a lot as long as you pick yourself back up. Also being more aware of my emotions. I have more tools in my bag to help me through tough times and have changed some bad habits. I’ve had lots of mindset gains. I read more, watch a lot less TV. I have lost 10lbs since starting. I have lost 4 inches in my waist. I still don’t hit huge numbers with the weights but that doesn’t bother me.

If you want a new you with a better outlook on life, team SD Evolution is the way to go.

I was so unfocused and was not getting results before working with SDE. I finally decided I needed a coach to get on track and see results. I chose SDE because I wanted a coach that cared about more than spitting out a cookie cutter program every month, and would listen and actually coach me even if it was online. I’ve reached so many goals since starting including muscle gain, lifting form and confidence improvement, decreased knee pain from increased muscle, more nutrient filled diet, ways to deal with stress daily.

SD Evolution changed my life in so many positive ways!

Before SD Evolution, I was pretty unaware in regards to nutrition and I didn’t have a real focus for my training, or I just did whatever and had no plan. Now, I feel like I have a true understanding of training for strength and what steps are important to making progress. I also feel like I have a real grasp on nutrition and eating to fuel your sport. And my mindset, in general, is loads more positive. I see my peers and revel in their strength rather than feeling jealous of it, or inadequate.

My favorite part about their coaching is the check-ins! Feeling like I can be honest and open and ramble without being judged. It’s like a weekly phone call with a faraway friend.

To sum up my experience in one sentence: I feel challenged, heard, pushed toward setting and achieving my goals, valued, and cared for as a member of the team and I’m beyond stoked to be a part of it.

I chose SD Evolution to find balance between life and fitness. I’ve made a lot of mental gains. I no longer stress about missing a workout. I’m not as hard on myself anymore. I’ve also learned the importance of tracking your weights when lifting. Before I would never progress because I had no idea what weight I lifted last week!

My favorite part about their programming is their attention during check-ins. The emails aren’t scripted and feel very personalized!

Working with them has been everything I had hoped it would be!

After 11 months (and counting!) with SD Evolution, I found they are always able to work with me no matter what my goals are. And even without meeting in person I feel they’re two of the most real, genuine coaches out there. I have learned overall to be more in tune with my body & how it reacts to nutrition & training.
