Brett Woodmass - Testimonial !!

I came to Dynamic Nutrition back when i started up boxing again. I had set myself a goal to be fighting under 75kg and be as lean as possible without dropping any existing muscle.


Brendon took this on board and asked a lot of questions about workouts and other activity levels to find out exactly what was required. So i was set up with a full meal plan, i got eating more food then i ever had before!  It was great! 

My energy levels have been boosting so training has been a breeze after work.


My health and fitness levels are up and just over all feel super healthy in general. The muscle was slightly building and the fat just falling off.


Not having any guesswork to make my weight for weigh in made it so easy and stress free leaving me ripped and ready fight, so my focus could go on the training and preparing for fight day . I recently competed in the central north island boxing champs and come out on top of my weight class.


Diet has definitely played a massive part of my training and Brendon got it spot on. So much knowledge and motivation!

2017 Nabba/WFF Christchurch Grand Prix

FotorCreated_2.jpg
June 05, 2017
Category: Clients Journey

After spending the last year training hard, eating well and losing fat, the idea of doing a show became very exciting for me. We weren't sure how long it was going to take or what we were going to do to get there but we were determined to make it happen and knew exactly what we wanted to achieve.


It was roughly 20 weeks out from the Christchurch show that we decided that would be the one. The first time that I'd walk onto a bodybuilding stage and put myself in front of all those people to be judged.


Let me tell you something... getting a female to drop under 10% body fat is hard!!! Especially the first time round !!  Regardless of this fact we pushed through and made it happen. Entering the show well into single digits .


It definitely wasn't all smooth sailing though, as there was 7 weeks of my prep where I had no movement at all on the scales. This was hard for me... As it being first time round I struggled to understand and trust that we would be able to get me to make weight. After many conversations with Brendon and him telling me every time that he had it sorted and would get me there, I would not listen. I became fixated on it, weighing every day, counting the grams.It wasn't until Brendon sat me down and really drilled it into me that my mindset was holding me back ..... he upped my food intake ( which was an absolute mind bender ) and changed our training significantly , more relaxation techniques were applied and the fat started to come away again .


As the show date got closer I began worrying again, so much so that I was lucky to even make weight in the end. I put so much stress on my body that everything we did struggled to work. So... Lesson learnt, trust in the process and keep stress levels low!!! The body won't do anything if you stress the way I did.


The day of the show was huge for me. Getting up early to eat, get all tanned up and hair and make up done ... Then down to the show venue. Standing around all the other competitor's is a little intimidating, looking at everyone with their big puffy gowns on, trying to picture what they look like under there, if they are in your class and what you'll look like standing next to them. It's hard not to get caught up in it all and the tricks that your mind plays on you.


Walking out onto that stage surprised me, I felt so confident and so proud of what we had achieved. All the nerves left my body and effortlessly I posed and smiled and genuinely enjoyed myself. Winning my class was an amazing feeling and didn't really sink in at first.


Walking off stage with my head held high, trophy in hand, then running to Brendon and hugging him with excitement, tan and all. We were both so happy, but knew it wasn't over yet. Time for the overall line up with my biggest competition yet.


We knew before I walked back out on that stage that a tough call was going to be made. Who was going to win the overall title? One of the leaner women with less muscle... or me... Not as lean but a lot more muscle in all the right places. After a round of posing the judges made their decision, the leaner woman took the trophy. We understood why the judges made that call and left the stage with head held high knowing what we had to go away and do to win the overall at the next show.


For a first show we did great, I loved the experience, I learnt a lot and we now know exactly what I need to work on to take my condition and physique to the next level... All we have to do is get leaner... Easy right 😉


With all the support of my family, friends and clients I know I can achieve anything. I have been so lucky to have my partner there by my side the whole way, every train, every meal, every near meltdown, every step of the way. He has kept me going when I lost sight of the goal and been my biggest fan right from the beginning, even before everyone else noticed me because of my physique. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for everything Brendon, you are an amazing man 😁


Now we are on our next little journey, entering a comp prep together. I have a feeling this will be entirely different than the last one. I can't wait to share this with him and both bring next level physiques in 12 weeks time.

I think now is the best time to come and do this and just write a little bit of a thank you for all the hard work and support that you have given me since February this year.


As we both know I started my change of lifestyle journey in January this hear tipping the scales at 153kg. I was lethargic, always tired and never had the motivation to do anything.


5 months later and with the support of both of you to help me achieve what I have, it has just been amazing. I now weigh 123kg, and have so much more energy.


I sleep better at night and always have motivation and confidence to achieve what I want to in life. This hasn't been an easy journey but enough to teach me lessons for the rest of my life that I want to live by.


 As I begin this new journey I'm embarking on I know that I will have the skills, knowledge and support of both Brendon amd Nikayla to help me train hard, eat right and get the results I want. Thanks heaps to both of you 🙌

Brendon was recommended to me by my personal trainer. I've never been to a nutritionist before so was unsure how it would go. He's a nice person. He's not intimidating even after you've stared at his competition photos and realised how much time and effort he puts into his body. On the other hand you realise he must know a thing or two.


I found he listened carefully to me and asked relevant questions - including what foods did I like - that gave me hope. He has put together a food plan that is able to be followed, has variations and plenty of food - no starving here! Plus there's flexibility, it's not about never eating anything not on the plan just making good choices when you do and treats are ok occasionally.


A good surprise as the weeks went by was the ease of now choosing nutritious food . Another surprise was finding supermarket shopping much easier. Most shopping is done in the outside aisles.


Monthly reviews are helpful to measure results, ask questions, alter plan if necessary. Feedback is always prompt, professionally presented and easy to follow with helpful links and always supportive.


Brendon has made a difference in my life, I am getting great results, I wish I'd seen him years ago. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to make good changes to their nutrition.

After years of reading numerous articles, books and watching videos online about health and nutrition I became overloaded and overwhelmed by the different 'trends', what one person would say was bad, another would say wasn't, how did I know what a 'standard' adult size was so i could work out portion sizes, it was all so confusing so I decided to bite the bullet and see a nutritionist. Dynamic Nutrition were recommended to me, so I looked them up and read the testimonials to which at that point were mainly body builders and I found myself thinking I would be totally out of my league and comfort zone seeing someone who seemed to specialised in that area of expertise, so I decided to see someone else who I thought was more suited to my lifestyle, however after the first consultation I found I didn't learn anything I didn't already know and found myself back to square one.


This is when I came to the realisation that I had nothing to loose so contacted Brendon ... and so the journey begins ... I have been getting Brendon's help for the last couple of months and it has been incredible. From the very first consultation I could tell how passionate he was about health as an overall and how willing and excited he was to be helping me achieve my journey to health.


I had been critically ill in 2016 and it was a journey that took a major toll on my body, Brendon took all of this in to account and how it would have affected my body and particular things like my gut health and looked in to ways to help get all of these things back on track.


In this short time I have lost body fat, gained muscle, can get through the afternoon without falling asleep, feel satisfied right throughout the day and night, have lost the cravings I once had daily and just mentally feel better about myself. My meal plan had exact portion sizes, what foods and supplements to have when and it was very straight forward to follow as well as being quick tasty meals to prepare and cook. He also took in to consideration the foods I liked and disliked and wrote my plan accordingly.


Brendon goes above and beyond to answer any questions I have, big or small and is always just an email away for help, he is dedicated to helping you achieve your goals and helping you learn about food so that eventually you can go off on your own and be confident in the food choices you make having the knowledge to put together a nutritious meal to fuel your body's needs. His knowledge is outstanding and having a background in both nutrition and personal training gives him a real understanding of the body as an overall, which for us is a bonus.


If you are considering Dynamic Nutrition I would highly recommended them, both Brendon and Nikayla are very down to earth and will be excited to help you on your journey.​

Meredith Bool - Client Journey

My weight-loss journey started before I joined up with Brendon & Nikayla at Dynamic Nutrition.


After a year of adversity, and setbacks – I had set out on my own to achieve some goals. After competing in half marathons in the past, in 2015, at rock bottom, I set upon running my third half marathon – my first in 10 years after knee surgeries. It certainly wasn’t my greatest. It wasn’t good enough for me, and I set a new goal to run one in under two hours. I trained hard. I trained because it was the only thing I had control over. I trained because it kept my mind of everything else. And I trained because that little boost of endorphins got me through the day. I achieved my goal. I ran 21.1km in 1hr 58 mins. But I had run myself sick. I even spewed after the run.


I was running a business and working another part time job. Not eating enough, not getting the right supplements, and not getting enough sleep – my gut health had deteriorated, my stress levels were through the roof, and I also didn’t have another goal to work towards.


Self-esteem was at an all-time low. I had achieved this feat, and lost 17kgs in doing so, but mentally, the words of others put-downs were still creeping into my world. Was I ever going to be good enough?

It was in July of 2016 I got in touch with Brendon. He looked at my current lifestyle, eating and training habits, and took all my measurements. First things first – he wanted to get me healthy. I walked out my appointment, knowing I was in good hands, and that he genuinely cared about my health. I received a nutrition plan tailored just for me, with the right supplements to support my current lifestyle.


Following check-ins have revealed different aspects of my body that have required attention, and Brendon has been quick to action the right channels to get everything sorted. It’s this quick, hands on approach that sets Dynamic Nutrition well above the crowd.


With my new goal in mind of wanting to compete in a figure competition (a long term one I never thought would be an achievable), Brendon put me on to Nikayla for training – the other part of the team. Nikayla took into account my goals, tested me for weaknesses in my body, and firstly set them straight. We have recently moved on to some tougher training- a programme put together just for me – which I’m sure she enjoys watching my gym face.

Both Brendon & Nikayla are an absolute wealth of knowledge. They are genuine, they care about you, your health and well-being, and helping you achieve your goals – whatever they may be.


My story isn’t finished yet, but both Brendon and Nikayla have worked together to get me healthy – starting from the inside out. It takes time and commitment – which they will absolutely mirror for you. I look forward to my training with Nikayla, and check-ins with Brendon, and the laughs. I’m happy to have them both on my team as we continue the journey. They get it.
