Alliance Training System

The Alliance Training System is just that, a system. There are philosophies and principles that guide those systems.
To paraphrase Emerson, “There are many methods but few principles. If you understand the principles you can create your own methods.” Well, our systems are really a combination of both principles and methods.
The principles, for the most part, stay unchanged. That’s why their called principles. However, the methods have a fluidity as we continue to learn how to better apply the principles.

Our nutrition system is a great example of this…

We have used many different methods of nutrition over the years to help produce results. All of those methods have been based on all or some of the following principles:

These are just some of the principles but you get the idea. The system we have in place to teach these principles and others has 4 Levels.

1.   For peak performance and/or optimal health, nutrition plays a vital role. You are what you eat.

2.  Good nutrition should empower physical and mental performance, enable ideal body composition, and promote long term health. It is our view that good nutrition should do all of these simultaneously. If you have a plan that lowers your body fat, but you can’t perform well physically or mentally, or your general health is sacrificed, then it is not a good plan.

3.  Calories matter.

4. Macronutrients matter.

5.  We are all similar but different.

6.  Diet is simply what you eat and how. It consists of daily habits that either support you in your effort to reach your stated goals or consist of daily habits that work against you.

7.  Good nutrition is a part of a lifestyle, not something you just do for 6-8 weeks at a time.

Level 1

Basic General Guidelines as follows:

  • Do one thing at a time.
  • Eat a variety of real, whole, unprocessed foods that add value to your body.
  • To lose fat, eat a little bit less. To gain mass or fuel athletic performance, eat a little bit more.
  • Make sure your overall eating environment and habits, as well as your feelings and beliefs about eating, help you rather than hinder you.
  • Be consistent and “pretty good” every day, rather than alternating wildly between rigid or “perfect” eating and uncontrolled or chaotic eating.
  • Commit to doing a habit consistently for at least 2 weeks before making any changes, to determine how habits are working for you.
  • Your body reflects what you put into it (food, recovery) and take out of it (activity, stress).
  • Make decisions based on data and close observation of yourself, not “rules” or someone else’s ideas.
