Q. How does the WAG program work?
Start by filling out our questionnaire so we can get to know you—your current body composition, short- and long-term goals, expectations, preferences, schedule, training style, and more come into play here. Then, our membership team pairs you with a coach who specializes in what you want and need. Your 1:1 Nutrition Coach will tell you how many grams of protein, fats, and carbs to consume daily and give you the tools needed to reach those targets.
Along the way, you’ll track your progress in our centralized web app, Seismic, where you log your weight, macros, measurements, and more. Through regular check-ins with your coach, discuss what’s working and what needs to shift, ask questions, and get personalized feedback and macro adjustments.
If you have questions/concerns or are looking for motivation outside of your weekly check-in, you can message your coach at any time.
Q. Do you design meal plans?
No, we do not design meal plans. You know that saying, “If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.”? We want to help you (literally) feed yourself confidently for the rest of your life by giving you the tools you need to make confident food decisions in any situation. So, instead of telling you exactly what to eat each week, your coach can help with food suggestions and guidance, but at the end of the day, you get the final say on what you eat and when. Learn more about why we let you be the boss of your meal plans here.
Q. What if I don’t want to track macros?
Tracking macros is a great way to learn what is in your food and what works best for your body. But, we understand that it may not be for everyone, especially if you’re just starting your nutrition journey.
Our coaching software—Seismic—allows your coach to turn tracking metrics (like macros) on and off based on what you choose to focus on together. In other words: you don’t have to track macros to be successful on the WAG program.
Q. Do you program workouts and gym routines?
We do not write specific, in-depth workout programs for our clients. But, as nutrition is our forte, WAG coaches constantly communicate with clients about how food choices and timing impact performance. Coaches make nutrition recommendations and suggestions based on your workout style, intensity, and goals.
Q. Do you offer video or phone calls with clients?
Since we don’t offer this service, we provide you with something better. Every client receives unlimited communication with their coach via messaging within our coaching app (available on your desktop or as an app!), Seismic. You don’t have to schedule an appointment or play phone tag when you have a question. Send it to your coach, and they will respond in Seismic.
Q. Do you work with expecting and breastfeeding individuals?
Yep! When you sign up for the program, you’ll have the option to select “Pregnant” and give us more information in your questionnaire. We’ll pair you with one of our Pregnancy Nutrition Coaches. If you’re breastfeeding, you’re part of our Traditional Program, but our questionnaire will prompt you to let us know if milk supply is something you and your coach need to keep tabs on as you work towards your goals.
Q. Do you work with people doing the ketogenic diet?
We sure do! Many of our coaches have followed a ketogenic diet and undergone extensive training to ensure they’re prepared to work with keto clients. You’ll have the option to select “Ketogenic” during the signup process if you currently follow a ketogenic diet or want to give it a shot.
Q. Can you work with young, old, overweight, already fit, or inactive individuals?
Come one, come all! We coach people of all shapes, sizes, and lifestyles. Our program is custom-built around you and your goals. Check our results page here. You can filter by age, lifestyle, profession, and more to find people who have success with this program.
Q. Why do I have to commit for three months?
Since making a sustainable change doesn’t happen overnight, we require a minimum three-month commitment to ensure you get the most out of the program and practice patience with yourself. We also heavily value the coach/client relationship. Building a solid and trusting relationship with your coach takes a bit of time, and a three-month minimum commitment ensures you create that strong foundation together. After three months, your account will automatically convert to monthly payments until you cancel.
Q. What if I have medical issues?
We can work with almost anyone struggling with a medical illness, but our coaches cannot provide medical assistance or treatment options for diabetes, hormonal problems, thyroid problems, PCOS, etc. Many of our coaches work with clients to help them put medical recommendations into habitual practice. If you have a medical illness, please consult your doctor before changing your diet.
Q. What if I have specific dietary preferences?
Are you wondering if you can succeed with WAG if you’re vegan, vegetarian, paleo, gluten-free, or just a picky eater? You can! We choose your macros, and you choose your food. Your coach will give you personalized recommendations based on your dietary preferences to help you feel confident hitting your targets and reaching your goals.
Q. Can WAG help me if I’ve been calculating macros for a while?
Sure, we’re just super strict and mean to you since we know you can do it. Just kidding, we’re friendly people. But yes, we will still challenge you and help you reach your goals!
Even the most experienced coaches need a coach—staying objective about your body and performance is challenging. Everyone can benefit from having another set of eyes on the situation and making those tough calls. Every WAG Coach has a WAG Coach.
Q. How is the WAG program different from other nutrition programs?
Our program is specifically designed for you and can change as your body, goals, and seasons of life change. From cleanses to carb-less, you’ve probably tried at least a few shiny diet trends. And the truth is, they all work in some way, shape, or form… just not for everyone—and not for all goals. We’ll help you get off the hamster wheel of yo-yo dieting, being strict for a while, “falling off” your diet, and vowing to start over on Monday by tailoring a nutrition program to you and proving support and accountability along the way. WAG is not an overnight solution or a quick fix—we work with you to help you find a sustainable approach to your nutrition, so you walk away with the confidence and knowledge needed to maintain your results long-term.
