RP Coach, Derek Wilcox on Weight Fluctuations

Mar 29, 2021


About me - Live in Stanley NC. After retiring from powerlifting I've competed in jiu-jitsu and disc golf. I play normal golf, lift weights of course, and may jump back in the highland games again. I have two dogs, Freya and Kvasir.

Why did you start coaching? Combining my passion for fitness and strength with helping improve people's quality of life

What is your coaching style? I practically beg clients to ask questions about the process. I love the back and forth with my clients. The more informed and confident you are in what you're doing the easier it is to stay motivated and consistent.

What kinds of clients do you work with? I've worked with everyone from children to world-class athletes to the elderly just trying to get off the couch better. I love it all!

What is your favorite part of coaching? When clients participate, learn, and eventually become self-sustaining with the tools I helped give them for a better life through nutrition and fitness.

What type of client would be the best fit to work with you? Literally, anyone who has goals to achieve. I love every journey regardless of how big or small.


What you'll get: 

Choose from plans structured by an RP coach, each tailored to achieve your specific needs and backed by science. Whether you opt for a diet plan, a training plan, or a combination of both, you'll receive 1:1 expert guidance from your coach via email exchange with very little left to chance.

  • Diet Plan: Focus on your nutritional goals with a customized diet plan. Your coach will help you dial in your macros, whether you aim to lose fat or gain muscle. Full meal plans/recipes will not be provided but you will receive guidance on the proper amount of protein, carbs, and fats to consume daily with a list of recommended foods!
  • Training Plan: Focused solely on weight training with a plan designed to fit your fitness level and goals. Please check with our help desk if you have sport-specific training goals.
  • Combo Plan: Get the best of both worlds with a plan that integrates diet and training for comprehensive progress.

With all plans, you are expected to proactively check in with your coach twice a week with updates and questions. It's important to note that the coach will respond to your updates rather than initiate contact on their end. Your coach will monitor your weekly progress through these check-ins and make any necessary adjustments for you based on your feedback.

You'll have unlimited email access to your coach, ensuring you get timely responses to your queries: within 24 hours on weekdays and 48 hours on weekends (May vary based on the coach's schedule). Your feedback and questions are necessary for your coach to make the most informed decisions on your behalf for your plan so do not be shy about contacting them for help!

Please contact our help desk or refer to our FAQ below if you have any further questions about our services!
