Who's Coach Brian???
I've been active from a young age in high school starting with Track & Field. From there, I pursued running into my college years. Running has taken me on many adventures through multiple marathons, and even into racing Olympic distance triathlons.
I was fortunate to graduate in 2005 with an Exercise Science and Nutrition degree. One reason I choose this profession is that I absolutely love working with people to help transform their bodies. Blending both exercise and diet is proven to be the best strategy to change our bodies especially when applied in an individualized approach.
My career started out the first 6 years in a traditional gym as a personal trainer. I had the fortune of working with hundreds of everyday people who manage busy schedules, families, careers to help them better understand how to balance exercise, nutrition, and well-being.
After my time as a personal trainer and nutrition expert, I decided to open up my own gym. I owned and operated 2 CrossFit gyms in which I worked with thousands of clients through 5+ years. At this point, I was really able to develop a high level of coaching my clients. If I had a claim to fame, it would be taking Betsy Finley to the CrossFit Games in which she became a CrossFit World Champion.
Since selling off my gyms, I've chosen to focus my coaching abilities on helping others understand nutrition, fitness, and overall health to better their lives. I've helped thousands of people throughout the years by sharpening my skill sets and capacities to help you meet your weight loss goals.
It's finally time to get the help you deserve from a seasoned professional that's done the work to create high value and impact in my clients world. I now live to serve my clients to the best of my abilities and allow them to reach the goals they've wanted for themselves.
Outside of serving my clients, I have a wife of nearly 14 years and we take care of our 4 children - so I know what busy is! We love to travel and have out sights set on visiting all 50 states and beyond. We've knocked out 20 so far.
Brian is fantastic! As a busy traveler, Brian modifies his approach to meet my lifestyle needs. He's always available for coaching when I need it, not only during our scheduled meeting times. His approach to my fitness training and workouts is personalized. It's great to work with a trainer that understands training isn't one size fits all. Highly recommend!!!!
As a small business owner, I have always had trouble getting into a consistent workout/nutrition routine since my work schedule is anything but consistent. Coach Brian immediately recognized where I've had trouble in the past and offered up simple, flexible suggestions to make sure that my exercise and nutrition don't fall off track when I'm busy. On days where something came up and I had to skip the gym, Brian would provide some simple exercises I could do on the go throughout the day to make sure I stay on track. He's made me realize that "healthy eating" doesn't mean eating bland food in minuscule portions and that if I fall off track at one meal, I can adjust other meals to balance out my other meals to balance out my daily intake. Most of all, Brian keeps me accountable but does so in a way that's supportive and helpful, not intimidating.
I have always been skeptical about nutrition advice because there's so much of it and so much contradiction. But after gaining about 20 pounds over the past couple of years, I needed to make a change. Brian walked me through how to cut through the noise to make healthy food choices. He also helped fine tune my workouts to get the most out of the limited time I have in the gym. I am now leaner. My clothes fit better, and I'm building muscle. More importantly, I understand how to make healthy choices, and how to continue to improve my health. Brian taught me how to fish. Even though it cost a little money, I am confident the investment will pay dividends in a better quality of life, not to mention healthcare expenses.
When I first contacted Brian I had very limited knowledge on nutrition. I have been on a weight loss journey for some time now trying to lose 35-40 lbs and this year i hit a wall and could not lose any more weight after losing my first 15 lbs. Brian has educated me on the right types of foods to eat, the proper portions, and how to eat balanced meals. And probably most importantly he has given me tools and resources that have allowed me to avoid the usual pitfalls that one comes across during a typical week. The best part about all of it is that none of this has required some gimmicky diet. I am able to eat all types of food (and I'm actually eating more then before) and still be able to lose weight by just making smarter decisions and having the knowledge on how to pair foods to get the best results. I have been working with Brian for 6 weeks now and I am down 15 lbs and have broken the glass ceiling that has kept me stuck at the same weight the last 6 months on the way to hitting my goal. As a busy business owner who's days can be long and unpredictable Brian's knowledge that he has shared with me has helped me to develop a plan that works with my lifestyle (because if it doesn't work for you then it won't be sustainable). I have to travel from time to time for work and he has even helped me formulate a game plan for when I'm on the road. He is very responsive and flexible around my schedule which has been great. He has provided me great feedback and has been very supportive. I feel I finally have a game plan for myself that will carry me far into the future. You can read 1000 different articles online on how to lose weight and it can be overwhelming but Brian does a great job of cutting through all the noise and takes the time to understand you, your lifestyle, preferences, weaknesses, etc and delivers great advice that will work for YOU! Thanks, Brian!
Brian is enthusiastic about the change he can deliver, knowledgeable about how to do it, and extremely hands on! I have worked with trainers before, but none who have taken the time he has understanding my challenges, reviewing my diet and monitoring my results. If you are looking for results- Brian is your guy!
QuaranLEAN: 12 Weeks, 26 Pounds, 16 Inches
When we come out of quarantine, none of my pants will fit - in the BEST way! I did NOT take supplements or get hormone shots. I did NOT starve or deprive myself. I DID work hard and eat clean. I DID work out (almost) every day, most days twice. I DID enjoy wine with friends, eat cake at weddings, and explore good restaurants. I DID learn a lot, about fitness, nutrition, and most importantly, myself. If that resonates with you, here’s my story.
2019 was the ride of my life.
In January, my husband came home from what would be the last of 3 long military deployments. In February, I got promoted to a role I had dreamed of for years that would take me back home to Denver. In March, we celebrated by traveling France and Spain. In April, we sold our house and it was wheels up to Colorado in May. We spent the remainder of the year falling back in love with a city we once knew very well, but looked completely different now. Our high-rise downtown apartment gave us easy access to good food, fun, and friends…and we had a lot of all 3…especially food. Weekends would start with brunch and end with 2AM tacos. We explored and experimented and enjoyed every second of it.
My promotion was exactly the exciting challenge I had been craving. I traveled 2 or 3 times a month to beautiful cities across 3 time zones. I began a love affair with Uber Eats and frequented the sometimes disparate airport dining options. Each time I visited a city in my territory, it was customary to take the team to dinner…a big dinner. The kind of dinners that are so good they leave you sitting back in your chair, smiling to yourself in gratitude while you let the inevitable food coma overcome you.
It. Was. So. Fun.
But, as they say, the body keeps the score. Running on Starbucks and takeout eventually takes it’s toll. I stopped recognizing the girl I saw in the mirror. I walked with my head down, no longer confident in my outfits. I became more shy and less inclined to meet new people. When my sweet husband would compliment me - “You’re beautiful” “You’re perfect” “I love your look” - I stopped believing him.
As I saw my body changing I tried to take back control. I woke up every morning at 4:45AM and worked out - HARD! I started ordering (what I perceived to be) healthy options at restaurants. I anxiously waited for results that never came. I anguished as the scale continued to move in the wrong direction.
I wasn’t getting anywhere on my own. I needed help.
New Years Eve I pulled a beaded dress out of the closet that had served me well through many a Roaring 20′s party. Just as we prepared to step out the door, the side seam ripped. I had remembered this dress fitting well, a little loose, even. Not anymore.
And that’s when I decided - not anymore.
I got Brian Parana’s name from a friend at work. She had worked with him and sang his praises. I had seen firsthand that whatever it was that he did, it worked. He was a coach who could help me get my body back and change my life, or so the website said. One call with Brian and I was in. I made an investment in myself and, more importantly, a promise, that I would not fail.
Brian’s program is smart. He works 100% remote with people across the country. It is habit focused and flexible. “Plan, Prepare, Act” is the motto. He helps you understand what you’re putting in your body and how it impacts your results. Working with Brian made me realize why I never achieved results on my own. Those “healthy” choices I was ordering from airport restaurants and delivery drivers were calorie bombs in disguise. I started counting macros. I structured my meals differently. I tried new exercise regimens. I created strategies to help me navigate the constant travel and approach team dinners with restraint. At first, it was hard. I made mistakes. I made excuses. And Brian gave me the tough love and constructive feedback I needed to push through them. Eventually, it became normal - EASY, even.
My progress was not linear, but it was incredible. I started feeling better in my clothes. I had more energy and confidence. I got stronger. I felt in control. I felt closer to my husband. My clothes started getting baggy and I even had to order new sweat pants and workout gear.
I have not yet reached my goal, and this is not a program that you “end”. What I gained from working with Brian was so much more than I bargained for. I renewed my sense of self. I changed my habits, for good. I gained an education and understanding of nutrition that even a whole course in college had not given me. For the first time in a long time I look forward to my 30th birthday with excitement about where my body will be, instead of fear.
Asking for help is not weakness, it is strength. Maybe you have always been the “helper” and self-reliance is all you have ever known. Maybe the balance of give and take has always been disproportionate in your life. Whatever your story, take it back and write the next chapter. You won’t regret it.
