I started training with Tanya in January of 2005 for my first figure competition. Being that this was my first competition I had TONS of questions which Tanya was always there to answer and ease my mind. She is so knowledgable about exercise and nutrition plus she is a competitor herself so I felt extremely comfortable training with her. She was very consistant with changing my diets and work outs as I progressed and got closer to my goal. I was very happy with my results, I went from 22% body fat to 12% by the day of my show…I know I could not have done it with out the help of Tanya. I am currently training with her again for 3 shows at the end of this year and I can’t wait to see what we will do with my body this year! I am so thankful for meeting Tanya and traing with her, I have sent numberous people to her for general diet help and to get ready for a show. I can not thank her enough for all the help she has given me over the past year, not just for my show but she really helped me see my full potential and realize I can do ANYTHING I set my mind to…and like she always says…”You are what you eat, but even more so you are what you think”. Thank you Tanya, love you!!!!! -K.C.
I never would have imagined that after four babies, gaining weight from 50-80 pounds each time, that I would confidently do a bikini competition. After being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor I needed something to keep me from spiraling into my old habits of depression binge eating. Tanya had more faith in me than I had in myself. With her help and support I slowly gained trust in the process and learned how to better fuel my body. Learning how to eat so many healthy meals, properly portioned, I began to feel better on the inside out. Emotionally and physically! I learned to not care that the scale didn’t move where I thought it should be but embracing my curves and new muscles slowly appearing. I finally got to my goal and the big competition was here. If it could go wrong, it happened to me! From my suit breaking to locking my keys in my car I thought I should throw in the towel. Tanya (and her amazing hubby Brett!) came to my rescue on more than one occasion. I couldn’t have made it without her in my corner. Pushing me to my best self. She is an amazing nutritionist, supplement specialist and coach.
I had the opportunity to begin working with Tanya prior to participating in my second show last April in Fresno. She was very helpful with diet instructions and exercise suggestions. With these I was able to drop over 3 percent body fat in as many months. I went well prepared for the show and had a great time. She also coached me for the show this past September and was able to drop another 3 percent body fat. Again, well prepared for the show and had a great time once again. Looking forward to working with her this spring for the upcoming April show. Very happy to recommend her services for anyone looking to improve health and fitness.
Just a little testimony for the next keto seminar. I was forced to cut my diabetic medication in half in less than a week on keto. My blood sugar almost immediately dropped. Half the medication dose and my numbers are better than when I would take metformin twice a day. Thank you for the knowledge.
Tanya, although the time we worked together was short, I can honestly say the knowledge I’ve gained from being coached by you is priceless and will last me a lifetime. I’ve worked out for the last fifteen years and was never really able to get the physique I desired. Primarily, this was all due to never focusing on the importance of nutrition. Working with you made me realize nutrition is just as important as hitting the gym, if not more. All it took was about three weeks to make me a believer in what you do. Once I received the nutrition plan you created for me I knew it was time to put in work. I remember thinking to myself, how is it possible to eat this much food and stay in shape. Literally, all I had to do was follow the nutritional plan, without deviating from it, and continue the same workout routine. When we started the nutritional plan, I was at a 9% body fat percentage. Three weeks later, I was at a 6% body fat percentage. This was all do to your expertise and guidance. I continue to follow the nutritional plan you crated for me and continue to focus on the importance of nutrition. I can honestly say that at the age of 35, I’m in the best shape of my life. I thank you for working with me and sharing your knowledge to get me to this point. Your commitment to your athletes is amazing! Anyone coached by you should consider themselves extremely lucky for the opportunity! Thank you!
Hello, my name is Joaquin. I've spent the majority of my life being overweight and out of shape. Weighing in at 310 pounds my hobbies included overeating and being a volunteer craft beer tester...🤓 At the beginning of 2017 I was invited by a cousin to enter the Total Nutrition weight loss challenge. I had recently decided to make a drastic change after a back injury almost cost me my job. Full of doubt, I reluctantly agreed to enter the challenge. Little did I know my life was about to change. The Total Nutrition weight loss challenge was much more than a competition to simply lose weight. I attended the free seminars to gain as much knowledge about nutrition as I could. I learned what supplements I could use to fit my lifestyle and ultimately help me achieve my goals. Tanya Pennington and her team made themselves available to answer any questions and even share recipes. In closing I would simply like to express my full gratitude to Tanya Pennington, Lauren Rocha and the rest of the Total Nutrition team. So far I am down 60 pounds. More importantly my eyes have been opened to possibilities and potential I never knew existed. I'm just getting started and am excited to see where my journey will take me. I would fully recommend that anyone struggling with obesity or poor nutrition in general give Tanya and her staff at Total Nutrition a chance to help you help yourself..
Tanya! What kind of sorcery do you posess?! This is only day 5 and I feel amazing! I’ve had two CrossFit workouts in which I had so much energy throughout. I could give it my all. I beat my time! I feel great all day and am sleeping so good! Thank you! And my joint pain is soooooo much better, almost gone! And no antacids! Yay!
