"Kyla has allowed me to see drastic results in both body composition and training. I was plagued with injuries, swings in training, and low energy before meeting Kyla. She alleviated all the stress I had around eating creating a simple, straight forward plan that I could follow. By eating more food at the right time I saw a huge boost in energy, big gains in fitness, and a big transformation in my body composition. Kyla created a plan specifically for me and my training loads/stresses seamlessly integrating the need to shift my body composition from that of a swimmer to that of a triathlete while maintaining my training load. I know that I am putting exactly what I need to in my body at the right time. I love that weight is only one aspect of her nutritional program - she focuses on how you are FEELING - how hungry you have been, how much stress have you been under, how many hours of sleep you are getting, how your clothes are fitting, etc. Each aspect has a big impact on body composition and overall well being. I lost weight while performing better than I ever had under Kyla's watchful eye. Her approach and genuine care for each of her clients helped me go from elite amateur triathlete to Professional Triathlete. I couldn't have done it without her!"

"There is not enough good things I can say about Kyla! When I first started working with her I was 3 months postpartum and desperate to lose the baby weight. With her help and guidance I have completely changed my nutritional pattern and the knowledge I've gained has been life changing. The best thing about Kyla is whenever I have a question, big or small, her response is always incredibly helpful and insightful! She always has great tips for me if something doesn't seem to be working. She is so motivating and always gets me right back on track if I need some guidance. I have worked with her almost 2 years now and I don't plan on giving her up any time soon! I highly recommend her!" - C.T. CrossFitter
I was connected to Kyla in a discussion with a coach on needing to get a handle on my nutrition. I was coming off a 70.3 effort that I felt was good, but I also knew I was at a plateau directly connected to my weight and how I was fueling during training. Kyla set me up for success with a 6-week plan to improve performance as the #1 objective and weight loss as a secondary goal. I lost 10# in 6-weeks and never felt better in all my workouts. I am running at faster paces with lower heart rates and have fellow cyclists noticing I am passing them on the climbs now :) I am still in contact with Kyla as I set up to navigate the summer of training and racing and eating on my own. So far so good!"

“As a cyclist, weight has a huge impact on performance. Despite the efforts I was making in my training and dieting, my body did not reflect all of the hard work I was putting in. I started working with Kyla to help me properly fuel my training & racing and lose some fat. She helped me understand what macronutrients I needed and when, and that carbs are not evil…. They just need to be appropriately timed. Her plan was customized for me and my exact training schedule so that workouts and recovery were optimized. Throughout the process, she was highly involved and responsive to any questions that came up along the way. And best of all (for me and my loved ones!), I wasn’t “hangry” like on many diets I had tried in the past. The results have been nothing short of amazing! I lost 16 lbs in 4 months (mostly fat!) which is roughly 10% of my starting weight. I feel great and looking forward to improved race performance this season with less weight to carry on the bike. I definitely couldn't have done it without her!”

"In August of 2014, I decided that I wanted to change my diet. I spoke to Kyla Channell. She put me on a meal plan that fit my life style. In one month, I lost six pounds. More importantly, when I got my blood work done at the end of the month my numbers were fantastic. In fact, my results were so good my cardiologist took me off both the high cholesterol and blood pressure medications. I never thought I would be without medication. This is a huge accomplishment."

"It had been three years since I went from a confirmed non-athlete to calling myself a "CrossFitter". It was time to take another step towards finding my inner warrior and fine tune my diet. Kyla provided the perfect combination of guidance and understanding. Three months later I had not only met the goal I had set but had exceeded it. All the while seeing PR's in lifting and improved endurance. Kyla's professionalism and support made it all possible."

"Where to even begin?! Kyla was amazing to work with and helped me surpass my goals over the course of the last 6 months. I started doing CrossFit initially to gain muscle and burn fat. After the first couple months, I started to notice small changes and my conditioning started to improve. It wasn't until I met with Kyla, however, that I really started to make leaps in my development. She helped me not only plan my meals, but understand why they were important, how to track them, and when to eat them. By combining her diet plan with a solid exercise regiment, I saw an explosive growth in my strength and speed. Using the hydrostatic body fat testing truck, I tracked my weight and body fat. After 6 months of working with Kyla, I've lost over 8 pounds of fat and gained 20 pounds of muscle! I can't thank her enough for taking the time to work with me, help me plan my meals, and for her encouragement through the process."

"We first hired Kyla to help our daughter figure out how to use nutrition to help with her energy levels at swim meets – she’s a 15-year-old competitive swimmer. Kyla methodically examined every aspect of her eating and training habits and developed several strategies on how to eat the right things at the right time in order to feel better and perform better. It was not only helpful, it was transformative – our daughter now own’s her own nutrition plan, she knows how she needs to eat to perform and has never been stronger or faster.
We were so impressed with Kyla’s transformation of our daughter’s performance through nutrition that we decided to hire her to help us do the same. Timed around a “nutrition challenge” at our CrossFit gym, we both wanted to get leaner and feel stronger. Kyla again methodically examined our diets, our habits and our detailed body composition data and our specific needs and desires including our work-out schedules. She then started with designing a week-long, tailored menu for each of us. Every calorie, every gram of food was detailed in her plan – we knew exactly what we were supposed to eat and when. After the first week, Kyla requested detailed feedback on what was working and what we were struggling with and then she revised the plan for the second week. Again, the specificity and customization was literally down to the gram and calorie level. It was amazing.
After six weeks of following the tailored plans, we each exceeded our goals – both loosing pounds of fat and gaining several pounds of muscle. We were most surprised by the volume of food needed to get your body to shed fat and perform at its peak.
We couldn’t be more impressed with Kyla’s depth of knowledge, professionalism and attention to detail. She’s the real deal. Not to mention, she’s the friendliest, nicest person you’d ever want to meet. We’d recommend her to anyone who is looking to take their nutrition & fitness to the next level."

"After an in depth conversation about my goals and lifestyle, Kyla provided me with a solid plan and the knowledge that allowed me to lose 14lbs of body weight and gain 7lbs of muscle. I saw, on average, increases of 12% in my squat, deadlift and press. Most importantly, the information Kyla provided has left me feeling like I have control over my diet."
