My name is Philip Bierman and I became an IFBB Physique Pro in July of 2019.
I have been into fitness and lifting for as long as I can remember. I first started competing in 2017 on a whim. I had never eaten a healthy thing in my life. I went to a coach and told him I wanted to lean out for the summer and he actually talked me into trying my hand in competition. I’d always put time and work into my body and never realized it’s potential with the right nutritionist/coach. So I went for it.
I have been on a 2 year hiatus, from competing, due to covid and everything else. I travel for work and finding open gyms across the country seemed nearly impossible. I made due with however I could. At the same time, I started making excuses for myself and giving myself reasons to keep putting off a prep. I HATE healthy food. More than most everyone else. My food during all my preps was always terrible and bland. Which made it even more difficult to start back up.
Then I met Kim, recently. If you have the pleasure of knowing her, you already know what I’m about to say. Watching this woman’ work is truly inspiring. Her drive and determination is second to none. She immediately started pushing me to be better. I know A LOT of people in the fitness industry and I’ve had a few coaches throughout the last few years. Nobody has put so much time and effort into me the way she does. She sees something in me that I do not.
Being into fitness as long as I have, you always look for better and more creative ways to train and push your body. In the short amount of time that I’ve known her she’s taught me more than I’ve learned in years and years. My workouts were becoming monotonous. NOT ANYMORE. My workouts have been insane. I found her at the right time. She has me planning to finally step on my first pro stage. I haven’t decided on a date, but I am going to consult with her and come up with a game plan.
One other thing she has taught me is that “prep food” doesn’t have to be disgusting. Since she has been working with me, I have actually enjoyed every single meal. Which, if you know me, you’d be extremely surprised by that. I’m a fatty at heart. BE SURE to ask her for her recipes and figure out how she does it. Her food is an absolute game changer!!! It doesn’t even feel like a prep.
It is nice to finally have a coach that cares about their clients. She is always accountable when I have a question or a concern.
If you have goals. Whether it be strength, weight loss, leaning out, toning, sculpting, bodybuilding, or even competing. There’s no other person that I’d recommend. She has truly shown me what drive truly is. She’s shown me that it doesn’t have to be hell. That it doesn’t have to taste bad or disgusting. She has shown me what my body is capable of. She has even helped me figure out how to prep and make it easier with my work travel.
Trust me when I say, you won’t regret becoming her client. My body has changed drastically in the 6 weeks she has trained me. My body has never responded this quickly.
Thank you for all your help Kim! I look forward to seeing what we can do in the future.
