Brittany Dawn Fitness: Training & Macro Review

I recently completed 30 days of training and macro counting with Brittany Dawn Fitness and I thought it would be a fun to start doing reviews of the programs that I try out.

I’m an avid follower of trainers and personal wellness gurus on social media so I’m going to start offering up my thoughts on the programs that I tackle in my personal life.

When I decided that I wanted to give macro counting a try to tighten things up in preparation for my birthday, I knew I wanted to reach out to Brittany of Brittany Dawn Fitness. I’ve always found her posts inspirational and wait excitedly for new YouTube videos.

As I said in my macro-related post {Macro Counting}, it comes down to keep track of and trying to hit goals for your daily intake of protein, fat, and carbohydrates. All the while, staying under set limits of sugar and sodium.

With the Brittany Dawn Fitness program I received three main things:

  1. Personalized Macro Breakdown
  2. 30 Days of Workouts
  3. Coaching

Curious how it went? Here’s a review as well as some of my personal experience with these aspects of the 30 day program.

Macros:

I didn’t know where to start on this so it was great to talk to someone experienced, get a program tailored to my needs, and have the ability to have follow-up conversations and tweak the plan. We aren’t talking about a restrictive diet, this was a ton of food. I won’t share the specific macros, but here a sample of a date of eating:

  • Hardboiled eggs
  • Protein oats
  • Smoothie
  • Salad + veggie burger
  • Nuts + dried fruit
  • Banana softserve

Needless to say, I wasn’t feeling hungry. And some days, I actually had trouble finishing all of the food. I set aside a few minutes each morning to play with my menu for the day in My Fitness Pal and then adjusted it throughout the day as needed.

Training:

I love weight training and usually make it to the gym at least 5 times a week. Sometimes more. Needless to say, it’s easy to get bored or plateau when you work out as often as I do. That means that I was especially looking forward to see the workouts that get Miss Brittany looking so fabulous.

What I really liked was how her workouts pushed me outside of my comfort zone. While I normally might skip a workout with moves I’ve never done or that I think are too challenging – This program pushed me to get creative and try new things. I don’t think I’ve done bench press since high school!

The only downside was that the workouts are fairly long – Sometimes I didn’t have enough time to finish all the moves or sets during my lunch break workouts.

Coaching:

This was, without a doubt, my favorite part about the 30 day program. Once a week I sent Brittany an email with my progress – From my measurements and weight to pictures and a breakdown of how I’m feeling. I loved not only being held accountable, but also getting to chat with someone knowledgeable and interested in helping me meet my goals.

I don’t know about you, but when I get excited about a new program or finish setting some exciting new goals, I want to talk to someone about it! So, having an online trainer buddy that I can chat with takes the pressure of le boyfriend to listen to me ramble about my workouts and diet. 🙂

Who are YOUR go-to trainers? Do you have any super inspirational online fitness or healthy living gurus I need to follow?

After taking a few weeks off after my program I’ve just started a 60 Day Fall Challenge with BDawnFit so stay tuned to hear how it goes!
