If you’re looking to improve your health, wellbeing and overall fitness level, Nikayla and Brendon at Dynamic Nutrition are the coaches for you.


Brendon was in charge of my nutrition. He helped improve my overall health and solved some recurring allergy/skin issues I had, solely by giving me a diet to improve gut health. This was astounding to me and really showed what good nutrition and utilising all food groups could do for me.


Nikayla was my personal trainer and she is legitimately incredible at what she does. Nikayla will push you to keep going when you think you’re going to give up! After every session you feel a sense of accomplishment. Also, I felt especially good about the fact my training plan was tailored entirely to my goals and ensured I was reaching my own potential.


What comes to mind when I think of the team at Dynamic Nutrition is ‘balance’ and ‘holistic health’. They want to help you achieve your goal of being a healthier and happier version of yourself. I would highly recommend them if you’re wanting to begin a mission of enhanced wellbeing and to better yourself through fitness and health in general.

Jas Baker - Testimonial

October 15, 2017
Category: Clients Journey



After returning back home from a great family holiday over to Bali, being only 4 weeks out of my first Powerlifting competition, I knew I had to shed the weight I had put on fast in order to make weight for my competition.

 

With the help from Brendon and Nikayla I was able to do a mini cut and shed 6.5kg's in 4 weeks! They did my Nutrition programme in such way where I was consistently going down in weight each morning, but also made it possible to retain my energy levels and strength which is so important with my sport.

About 2 weeks out from my competition my food actually got increased and I was still losing weight!

This meant my energy levels peaked and my strength felt better than it ever had before! Come weigh in at my competition there was no stress as to whether I would make weight or not due to Brendon and Nikayla preparing me so well. I weighed in at an all time low for me at 55.8kg's!

 

Comp day meals consisted of oats, protein and pineapple (Favourite meal )  which spiked my energy levels tremendously and I instantly felt prepared to go out and lift some heavy weight!

 

I came away from my competition as the first place getter in my class and also the first place getter for the overall females. Without the help from Brendon and Nikayla I would not have been able to drop 6.5kg's in time for my competition and I also wouldn't of been able to perform the way I did on comp day.

 

Both Brendon and Nikayla's knowledge on Nutrition is insane and I 100% recommend them to anyone wanting to achieve their goals.

Dear Nikayla & Brendon,


I would just like to say a massive thank-you to you both, for helping me in the short 2 weeks between the Nabba/Wff Wellington show & Nationals. As a season competitor I've been competing for a number of years now but you are always learning, pretty much every comp you do & then chuck hormones & age in the mix & your back to the drawing board once again. I was lucky enough to catch up with these amazing guys backstage at the Wellington Show & with having a few hiccups with doing my own prep, together we hatched a plan for Nationals.


With just 2 weeks I wasn't sure it was possible, but decided to go hard ball, trust the process & just listen & do as I was told. The pressure was on! With their passion, dedication & determination they took up the challenge & we started working together. My progress in such a short time frame, blew me away!! You have full support & guidance right through, till you reach stage time. They were unable to be with me on the day but that didn't stop them at all, constant communication & updates made me feel at ease. I looked leaner & tighter for Nationals compared to the Wellington Show & that was our goal.


I wouldn't hesitate to have Nikayla & Brendon do my full prep for another show & would highly recommend them to anybody, whether for a Bodybuilding Comp, weight loss, general health & well being or to sort out those darn hormonal issues.


Thanks again, you guys totally ROCK!!! XXX

Luana Abraham - Testimonial !!! :)

September 24, 2017
Category: Clients Journey

I began my weight loss journey in November 2016 using an intermittent fasting approach and lost 8-9kg in 8 weeks.  However, Christmas fast approached, and I struggled to get back on track after the festive season.  Between January and May I continued the fasting approach, and attending the gym, but wasn’t strict about any of it.  With a rather hectic schedule, a busy part time solo mum (5 children) as hubby worked away quite often for long periods of time , working 20+ hours a week, running a business, coordinating playgroups and travelling around the country attending to children’s sports and events, then taking on a foster child, I began to feel unhappy about my weight and lack of progress losing it.  Not to mention a sense of overwhelming exhaustion.


I began a search for a personal trainer, and tried a few with no response, before stumbling across Dynamic Nutrition.  What I liked about reading through their website, was the many different approaches/styles they offered including life coaching, and decided to make contact.


Brendon got in touch with me through skype, and from there my journey kick started.  When he talked about training from home, I wasn’t truly convinced that I could stick to this, and wondered how I was even going to fit this all in.  Our first skype session began followed by a Training programme and Nutrition plan.  What I loved about this, was the fact Brendon and Nikayla took everything into account and provided me with a holistic programme, really focusing on my health and well-being, but incorporating my goals.  The Nutrition plan was simple, affordable and delicious, while fitting my lifestyle and sticking to the fasting approach.  The Training was also manageable where I took it day by day to begin with, always asking questions when needed.  Both Brendon and Nikayla were there right by my side available and responsive to all of needs and questions, which gave me more motivation as I was doing this at home by myself.


What I began to notice was on my treat days I would do home-made cooking/baking for the entire family (youngest child has food allergies), using gluten, dairy and sugar free recipes.  Some would be put away for school lunches, while the remaining we all got to eat together as a family.  My children, particularly my youngest began getting involved with the cooking too (she’s now 3 years old).

When our foster child moved in, we made a decision as a family to eliminate as much sugar as possible from our house, and the Sunday cooking/baking is now a weekly norm.

As my training progressed, and weight began to decrease, my hubby has since jumped on my ban wagon, and joins me for my cardio sessions and a weight session, while getting himself back into his own sports.


Though my meals are specific to my nutrition plan, our family meals and children’s lunches and snacks are based around similar foods (obviously appropriate for their needs).  My family now look forward to their treats, and are all eating a healthier balanced diet.  My toddler will often join me too during my workouts.


After 15 weeks, I got to meet Nikayla and Brendon for the first time in person, accompanied with my first training session with Nikayla, and although nervous to meet them both, I thoroughly enjoyed my session.


10kg down now, with no alcohol or sugar for the past 15 weeks and sticking to the plan and still working towards my goal weight, I would sincerely like to thank Brendon and Nikayla for giving me clarity in both mind and body, subtly pushing me, your ongoing encouragement and support, and proving me wrong that working out from home is actually achievable.  My family and I are extremely appreciative and grateful.  My older children are loving their new mum 😊

Post Comp Series

September 24, 2017
Category: Training



The shows are over and we are now entering the Post Comp Phase. 🏋

Post comp can involve a lot of adjusting, a lot of mind games about your body composition and a lot of discussions go down about what is next...

We are definitely lucky to have each other through this journey as there's someone there to share the feelings with and remind you that staying in comp condition all year round just isn't realistic, not with the goals of putting on more size and bettering our physiques for next year 😆

Stay tuned guys
