Criteria for application

The programmes available at Be Better ARE potentially the PERFECT fit for you IF...

You are aged between 25 - 39 with a MINIMUM of 12kg (2 stone) to lose.

At present, Be Better only offers personalised coaching programmes for anyone who is looking to lose a minimum of 12kg.

If you need to lose less than 12kg then unfortunately the programmes available at Be Better are not an ideal fit for you.

The minimum aged requirement for application is 25 years of age. The maximum age is 39

“The truth? If it’s the right fit, then we’ll both know and the results will be inevitable”  – unknown

When you speak or act you would describe yourself as having a high level of self awareness and with each choice that you make you find yourself almost caring too much as to emotional wellbeing of others.

Even if you’re having a bad time in your personal life you tend to be guilty of wearing a ‘mask of positivity’, putting on a brave face, trying consciously to bring positive energy to every room you walk into. Hiding your problems so that you don’t ‘burden others’.

If anything, you say sorry too often, you say ‘yes’ too often, you are too nice and too giving even when the energy isn’t reciprocated and because of this you often unconsciously get taken advantage of or feel under appreciated by others. To put it simply you feel like you give alot and you are tired of the feeling of feeling ‘needed’

You tend to live in a weird place somewhere between guilt, anxiety, depression and overwhelm. Feeling like you’re always giving and looking after others wellbeing, often even at the sacrifice of your own.

“Consider that strategic selfishness is the only long term sustainable approach to life” – J. Elder

You are currently single.

Whilst all programmes at Be Better are completely personalised to the individual needs and requirements of each client and 95% of any given programme is delivered 1-2-1 there is a possibility that small sections of any given client programme maybe delivered in a small group based format. (Nutrition education modules etc 1-6 people)

Because of this, protecting the dynamics of any small group is essential. As you can appreciate the wants/needs/barriers of someone who is struggling with their weight and is married/in a long term relationship is completely different than someone who is struggling with their weight and single.

With this in mind, as of January 2019 the coaches at Be Better have decided to specifically work with single men and women aged between 25 – 39.

”The universe responds perfectly to specificity” – R. Malco

You are currently in an environment where the dynamic between family, friends, colleagues or even clients cause you to feel like no matter what you do your best is never good enough.

Because of this you struggle a lot with confidence and find yourself chronically experiencing anxiety.

Deep down you love who you are but when you look in the mirror you don’t ‘see’ yourself.

Consider that needing to lose weight so that THEN you can love yourself is completely different than WANTING to lose weight because you love yourself.

Like electricity is separate to a lightbulb, you are separate to your body.  You have a body, but you are not  your body.

If you love who you are but don’t feel like your reflection demonstrates that – then a programme at Be Better might be the right fit for you.

”Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light and not our darkness that frightens us the most. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of the universe. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinkings so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are meant to shine, as children do. As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others” – M. Williamson.

You have made the decision to change and you are committed to both yourself and your goals.

Any coach or coaching company in the world will tell you that they are only able to help any client they work with to the exact degree that the client is willing to help themselves.

It’s for this reason that the ‘Be Better’ coaches choose to only work with people who are both serious about losing weight and are 100% committed to both themselves and their results.

If you are, then apply today – a personalised programme at ‘Be Better’ has the capacity to change your life.

“Commitment means staying loyal to doing what you said you would do long after the mood you said it in has left you”  – unknown

You’ve grown to love and appreciate solitude...

Sure everyone likes/desire to be connected to others.

But we’ll have you consider that there is a huge difference between wanting to connect with others and needing to connect with others.

When someone is in a state of self loathing (they don’t like/love themselves) then they often feel worse when they are alone (feel the sensation of loneliness). Because of this they often find they need to be with others or constantly need to be distracted from themselves and their own thoughts. They don’t feel connect to themselves so consequentially finding themselves ‘needing’ to always be with other people as this is when they feel less afraid.

In contrast, some people reach a point in your life where at times all they really crave is some ‘alone’ time. Some time just to ‘be’ with themselves and their own thoughts – whether it be a long walk, relaxing by themselves in a coffee shop, a workout or just chilling at home. They actually find the feel so much better when they are away from other people.

If this sounds like you? If you are the type of person who often works to seek out moments of isolation in their day because that is when you actually feel best. Never feeling ‘loneliness’, quite the opposite in fact – this is when you feel ‘fullest’ or ‘calmest’

…then a programme at Be Better may be the right fit for you.

“Loneliness is the poverty of self and solitude is the richness of self”
– M. Sargon.

You're looking to collapse time and achieve more in a few months than most do in years.

If you’re looking for a team of experts to help you achieve truly life changing results in minimal time using sustainable methods.

If you feel ready to make a serious change and feel motivated and committed to both yourself and your goals then Be Better is potentially the perfect place to help you achieve all that you want and more.

“Think BIG, believe BIG, act BIG and the results will be BIG” – Unknown

You are into personal development. You don't have a definitive way of thinking, you are always open to learning more or having your perspective altered in the face of new information or a different perspective.

In our experience – People who have an open (growth) mindset (way of thinking) are ideal clients at Be Better. Those who spend their downtime reading personal development content, constantly trying to learn and expand their mind. Constantly questioning their beliefs and assumptions, constantly trying to better themselves on some level tend to flourish under the mentorship of the coaches at Be Better.

If you’re the type of person who loves to have co creative open minded in depth conversations with people working together with someone trying to find our ‘whats true’. Rather than debates with closed minded people who are not open to altering the way they think irrespective of the evidence put in front of them – then a programme at Be Better may be the perfect fit for you.

“You cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it” – A Einstein.

Without judgement, when faced with a barrier...

There are two types of people –

1) Thos that naturally accept personal responsibility for the situation (irrespective of the barrier) and work hard to find a solution to get around the problem. They see the barrier as a puzzle that has to be solved as they are completely committed to themselves and actualising what they say they want.

2) Those that are the victim of circumstance/barrier and use it as an excuse to stop/give up. They see the barrier as a dead end and throw a pity party, pointing fingers and blaming the world for the situation. They don’t want to hear potential solutions form others, they want to wallow in their own self pity.

Due to the fact that any coach in the world can only help someone to the exact degree that they are willing to help themselves the coaches are only able to help type 1’s.

With this in mind, If you would describe yourself as a ‘solution finder’ then a programme at Be Better may be the right fit for you.


“If it is important to you you will find a way, if not you will find an excuse” – R. Blair.

Without judgement and with a heart full of empathy for yourself - you are able to accept full responsibility for the choices you have made that have created your current reality.

Why? Because by doing so you actually empower yourself with the power to change it.

If you can’t, you don’t.

“The moment you take responsibility for everything in your life is the moment you can change anything in your life”  – Hal Elrod.

The programmes available at Be Better ARE NOT the right fit for you if...

You're looking for a quick fix.

Anybody serious about losing weight understands that there is no ‘secret to success’.

With a nationwide obesity issue; the facts don’t lie – low calorie restrictive diets, supplements and quick fix exercise gimmicks simply don’t work.

Any method that requires you to do things that you don’t doing don’t work. You cannot suffer your way to success or punish yourself into prosperity.

Quick fix methods are incredibly short sighted and destined for failure.

The truth? If you want to lose weight for the last time the only way to do it is to change your relationship with food, your relationship with exercise and your relationship with yourself and this forms the very foundation of any of the coaching programmes available at ‘Be Better’

If you’re looking for a quick fix, the programme available are NOT best suited to you.

“There are no shortcuts to any place worth going” – H Keller.

You’re currently in a relationship or married.

The coaches at Be Better are currently specialising in working with single men and women, aged between 25 – 39, with a minimum of 12kg to lose.

Please reference the criteria above for details as to why.

If you are currently married or in a relationship then a programme at Be Better is not currently the right fit for you.

“Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have” – J. Travis. 

You’re ‘interested’ in changing.

Without judgement, there is a huge difference between someone who is ‘interested’ in changing or ‘thinking’ about changing and someone who has made a decision to change.

Completely different thoughts that create completely different feelings that drive completely different actions that create completely different results.

If you’ve have made the decision to lose weight and you are ready to go ‘all in’ and commit yourself fully to yourself and your goals then this is the perfect programme for you.

If you’re ‘thinking’ about making a change then this is not the right fit for you.

” Do or do not – there is no try” – Yoda.

You believe 'suffering' is the key to success.

The majority of mainstream weight loss plans and ‘diets’ are built around a philosophy of exclusion and restriction.

EXCLUSION – Cutting out your favourite foods (sometimes even food groups)
RESTRICTION – Heavily restricting calories which leaves people feeling tired, hungry and irritable.

The problem with this is that you cannot suffer yourself to success or punish yourself into prosperity.

Therefore, commonly people are only able to stick to the regime for few days, weeks or in some cases months. But eventually they fall off the wagon resorting back to their old ways.

Believe it or not – you don’t have to suffer to get what you want.

The personalised coaching programmes available at ‘Be Better’ are built around scientifically proven principles of inclusion and reduction.

INCLUSION – No food is eliminated, demonised or excluded.
REDUCTION – The focus is on portion control and awareness of calories.

The coaches work together with each and every client to create truly bespoke plans of action. The result being – people are able to eat the foods they love AND still achieve incredible results.

If you believe suffering is they key to success this is not the programme for you.

“In spite of what most people believe, you can have your cake and eat it.
Just not the whole cake and not everyday”

You are NOT willing to question your current way of thinking.

Your current thoughts (beliefs) are creating your current feelings and most importantly they are driving your current choices.

These choices are constantly creating outcomes/results which are cumulating to create your current reality.

Your current reality is therefore just an outcome of how you have been thinking.

If you desire to change your reality – it’s therefore essential that you work on trying to change the way you think.

If you are not willing to open up, analyse and question your current way of thinking to upgrade your mind with new liberating and empowering thoughts – then any programme at Be Better is not ideally suited for you.

“You cannot solve problems by using the same kind of thinking you used when we creating them” – A. Einstein

You are NOT willing to invest your time and energy into your own self care.

In our experience – It is impossible for any area of someones life to be functioning at 100% unless they are.

Every individual is at the centre of their universe.

With this in mind, it’s important to starting thinking as if you are the biggest the biggest asset

…and it’s essential that you start treating yourself like it.

Truth be told, there is nothing more important than your own physical and mental wellbeing.

Because, when you show up each and every day present, energised, healthy and happy – you show up powerfully.

…and everyone wins.

If you want to change how you look and feel you’ll need to start prioritising time for yourself and your health.

Not always easy – but always possible.

It’s essential that any participant looking to apply for any potential programme understands just how important it is that they work towards starting to find time for themselves, their own physical and mentail wellbeing and their own self care – to do the things that need to be done, to get what they say they want.

“The first wealth is health” (R. Emerson)

You want someone else to be responsible for your results.

The programmes at ‘Be Better’ are built on a foundation of education and empowerment. Whilst the coaches offer an unrivalled level of help and support to all clients the truth is – they are only able to help any individual to the exact degree that they are willing to help themselves.

The coaches cannot change anyone, they can only help people change themselves.

If you want someone else to be responsible for your results – then any programme at Be Better is not best suited for you.

“Empowerment is never about blame, it’s about excepting personal responsibility” – B Mcgill.

You think you need to be 'fit' to apply.

All personalised programmes at Be Better are built around 3 main pillars – Mindset, Nutrition and Exercise.

Whilst nutrition and mindset are the main focus there is still personalised exercise programming involved.

Rest assured, the coaches will ensure this part of your programme is personalised to your current level of fitness (whatever that may be).  Even if that means you are initially only able to walk for 10 minutes before getting breathless, no need to worry – they’ll start you where you are and build from there!

If you have any pre existing injuries please do not worry, they’ll also ensure this is taken into account when designing any exercise programme.

“Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can.”
– A. Ashe


Without judgement, in isolation you are prone to feeling sensations of lonliness, resentment or shame.

In our experience it may be better at this stage in your journey for you to explore other coaching options to help with these negative emotions. In many years of experience we have found that people who chronically experience these emotions often have to work on deeper issues with themselves or with other people or events in their past. Their weight issues are not the problem, more so a consequence of chronically experiencing these emotions. Trying to change the symptoms whilst the cause is still alive is almost impossible.

“Take away the cause and the effect ceases” – M Cervantes

Without judgement, You would describe yourself as a perfectionist, with an extremely high attention to detail and very competitive. With this mindset you also find that when you make an error/mistake or fail is very hard for you not to heavily criticise yourself.

If this describes you it is important to add that there is nothing ‘wrong’ with these characteristics. However due to the group based nature of some of our programmes we are working to ensure that there is empathy and connection in a group based enviroment and have found people with these personality traits to work better in a 1-2-1 coaching setting.

“The universe responds perfectly to specificity” – R. Malco.

You are looking for a personal trainer.

Whilst exercise coaching and programming is a huge part of the ‘Be Better’ programme – this is not a personal training or group exercise service.

The personalised programmes at ‘Be Better’ are focused on coaching and mentoring. The coaches work together will all clients to not only help them achieve truly life changing results but also take them on a journey towards complete self sufficiency

Each programme is taylored to the individual needs and requirements of each and every applicant – all programmes differ in length, structure and support systems.

Delivery methods of coaching may include a mixture of ‘in person’ coaching (both 1-2-1 or even possibly small group), one to one calls via phone/skype or even both.

Frequency of coaching sessions can be by weekly, weekly, fortnightly, monthly or even in some cases quarterly.

Daily online support is included in all coaching programmes at Be Better.
