How’s it going ladies and gents! Today I am excited and honored to share my client and friend, Patricia Ponceano’s 5 week turnaround to the bikini stage. Patricia came to me with only 5 weeks to drop close to 10 pounds for her bikini show. When I saw her current pictures and food intake I knew we could get very close to 10 pounds in such a short amount of time. Plus her determination and dedication over the phone sealed the deal that she would be committed to this short term goal.
It was a challenge at first because Patricia had past coaches that had her on set meal plans with no options or alternatives. I knew that if we implemented flexible nutrition with a tighter rope to walk on through 5 weeks we could have success.
Come show day we ended up dropping her to 120 pounds and she had started at 128 pounds, she came in very conditioned and perhaps too conditioned for the judges which in my opinion is BS, but that’s the nature of the sport and what’s most important to me is she went on stage in the best condition she has ever been in, learned flexible nutrition, and never had to compromise her health.
I’m very proud of Patricia and it was an honor being part of her journey.

See what Patricia has to say about her 5 week turnaround journey …
My personal goal to step on stage as a bodybuilding competitor in the bikini division was a long standing discouraging path prior to my encounter with Dynamic Duo Training. This journey of mine initiated in October 2011 when I began what was supposed to be a 12 week prep with a well-known IFBB Pro competitor as a coach.
My prep was cookie cutter with a “bro/clean eating” diet plan. I felt that I was just another number and just another income for this coach. Unfortunately, I had two more cookie cutter coaches after my first one. I then discovered flexible dieting; which is what works for me.
During my prep with DDT I worked and currently work with coach Chris. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for this genuine man. At first I was hesitant due to the fact that I would not be physically seeing my coach and that the coaching services were online. Let me tell you, this has been the easiest prep for me.
Chris was only an email away to answer any questions and was very prompt at responding to my check ins. He made me feel important, like he truly cared about me and my success, something I had not experienced with other coaches.
During peak week, he made things very simple as he guided me through it and was only a text away. All I had to do was follow his direction and trust his scientific knowledge. On show day, it was like he was there with me. Chris guided me throughout the whole day as I would text him sending him pictures and updates on how I felt and looked. Never once was I worried that he would not respond. I walked off that stage feeling confident and happy with the package that I brought to stage. I had never felt that confidence in my whole life until about 3 weeks out from my show day; a feeling that I cannot but a price tag on nor describe in words and Chris helped me get there.
I continue to work with Chris post show, although I got post show blues Chris has never reprimanded me as past coaches would when I struggled. To hear a coach say “Like I’ve said before I would never give up on you, I just need good communication and for you to meet me half ways” displays that he truly cares for you! Chris has gone beyond his means and my expectations to ensure my success. He is not like any other coach!
