- Here's how it works -
As a team member with Sam Barnes Lifestyle, Sam will take care of everything for you, from start to finish, in order to set you up for success. Once you’ve registered your interest, you will receive an email reply from Sam himself, who will explain to you how everything works and the options available to you. After this, you’ll fill in a detailed client profile form, going over your goals, exercise history, difficulties so far, and your current situation. Once your payment subscription has been set up, Sam will then use the client profile form to build your initial training, cardio, nutrition, and recovery plan. Alongside of this, he will map out your short and long-term goals, to give you direction.
Once you’re up and running, he’ll check-in formally with you once per week, using your personal progress tracking data sheet to assess how you’re getting on. You’ll receive a detailed video response to your check-in every week, alongside of any changes he has made to your plan. Between check-ins, you have his full support through out the week via WhatsApp, and he encourages clients to send regular exercise videos throughout the week for movement analysis and feedback.
This level of service isn’t common in the industry, and Sam’s also proud to be one of the only online coaches in the world with a team that’s made up entirely of Transgender clients.
Sam prides himself on upholding the highest levels of tailoring, professionalism, and non-stop value with every single client, so they can get the results and lifestyle they want.

- The Training Programme -
Your plan will be put together and sent to you on a Google Sheet. This allows you to view it wherever you are, and also allows Sam to make updates to it whenever you need him to.
Every plan Sam puts together for you has been created from scratch. It's tailored to your goals, current lifestyle, past experience of working out and current levels of exercise.
Sam will be happy to provide you with a plan that is built around your training environment. Whether this is at a fully equipped gym, or your home.
The most important aspect of any workout programme is the education it provides you on exercise form, intensity, the reasons behind exercise selection and basic understanding of your anatomy. If you're not focusing on the correct form and "feeling" the movement, you're not gaining all of the possible benefits. Every exercise Sam gives you comes with a link to a guide on the correct form and execution.
- The Nutritonal Guidance -
Sam wants you to create a healthy relationship with the food you're eating. Macronutrients (protein, fat and carbohydrates) are what he will help to educate you on. If you are consistently tracking your calories and macros, your goals will become far easier to attain.
From week one, Sam will set you up with a daily water goal. Hydration is key, not just for your overall health, but also for your ability to focus, perform and recover.
Meal Plan Examples
2-4 meal plan examples will be put together based on your filled in food diary. These will fit into your macros and will provide you with examples of how your favourite foods can fit into your macros. Your diet should never restrict you. You need to be able to eat out and enjoy life whilst hitting your goals.
