The Method

We are an online-based nutrition company that provides one-on-one, personalised nutrition coaching. We handpick a coach from our diverse team of nutrition experts, best suited to work with you towards achieving your goals.

Our framework is built on educating our clients around their individual body and its unique needs, and tailoring methods to support their nutrition, health and broader lifestyle related goals. Our process involves analysing nutritional intake and timing, measuring body composition changes, goal setting, and observation of other lifestyle habits related to sleep, hydration, exercise and mindset.

Our aim is to bring out the physical and mental best in each individual, and to teach them the tools to take control of their own health journey. If something’s not working, we’ll change it. If changes aren’t happening, we’ll address it. If it’s all too hard, we’ll make it easier.

We’re a diverse bunch of individuals who all became interested in the world of health and fitness for different reasons. We draw on a wealth of knowledge, including but not limited to: competitive sports, scientific research & education, and personal experience with injury, illness & weight loss.

What all of us have in common is our passion for the industry and our purpose to assist people from all walks of life in achieving their own goals.

No matter what your experience and goals are, our coaches are versatile in being able to offer a wide range of support. We help professional athletes, every day people and those who have never stepped foot into a gym -- all working towards their own goals.

Every client has worthy goals. We’re here to help anyone who wants to learn more about nutrition and make positive changes to their physical and mental wellbeing.

James Tasker
@coachjtasker

James is a country boy at heart, having grown up in the small towns of Deniliquin and Albury where he played various sports and music. He now calls Melbourne home, holding a double Bachelor’s degree in Biomedicine and Exercise Science (Victoria University). At the age of 15, James ruptured his AC joint playing AFL and wasn’t able to have reconstructive surgery until a year later. During that tricky period, he would have loved to have someone (like himself now!) to help coach him through recovery and encourage him to play football again. While the injury sadly marked the end of his footy career, it inspired him to dedicate himself to the health and fitness industry in which he’s gained six years of experience in nutrition, personal training and exercise programming. He hopes his personal passion for health and nutrition inspires others and enables them to achieve short term goals and lifelong changes.

@paigewill1

Paige has always been passionate about the world of health and fitness, discovering through her own journey the freedom healthy living brings. Paige uses her own experiences to help her clients grow to their full potential and live their best lives. To her it’s not about numbers – it’s about empowering people to become the healthiest, happiest versions of themselves. Paige spent decades exercising to be thin and meet society’s idealised beauty standards. One day her focus changed, and exercise became a means of strengthening what her body could do – not how it looked. There’s no hurdle Paige doesn’t understand. She’s worked with everyone from athletes with badass performance goals to mums looking to return to their pre-baby bodies and feel better in their own skin (as a mum herself, Paige understands this challenge first hand). Driven by helping clients achieve success, Paige puts her heart and soul into every person she works with. She provides a combination of tough love and sisterly support, tailoring individual plans that consider each client’s uniqueness.
