The Method

The Method Now is an online nutrition and lifestyle coaching platform, that brings together specialist expert coaches from around the world, to work with people from all walks of life.. 

Each and every client is specifically matched with a coach based on where they’ve been, where they are and where they want to go. We are proud to offer such a diverse team of coaches from around the world with a breadth of experience and expertise to help anyone achieve their goals.

The Method’s fundamental aim is to educate people on eating (and debunking!) a healthy and balanced diet, understanding their own body better and nourishing it to live your most optimal life. We cut the crap to simplify healthy living.

In short, our method involves analysing what happens when you eat what you eat. We measure body composition changes and other health markers like sleep quality, training capacity, mental health and energy levels to keep you on track to achieving your goals.

Our aim is to bring out the best in each individual and to provide them with the tools to take control of their own health journey. Some clients stay with us for six months; others two years or more; and some go and come back. The bottom line is that 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.

Our coaches share a  passion for helping people from all walks of life to achieve their goals.

Amanda Bunn
@amandabunn

Coach Amanda's number one passion lies in exploring and developing human potential. She describes herself as a "student of the game" and is always looking to strengthen and question her understanding of human movement, health and nutrition. She loves sharing this with her clients to help them reach their own potential and to improve their standard of living and performance. Amanda believes everyone deserves a chance to express their highest potential and to live a healthy and fulfilled life - physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and socially – and that nutrition is the basis for improving these aspects. Her coaching centres around not only using nutrition as a means to prevent disease and improve general health, but she also loves working with athletes on making those all-important “one-percent” improvements in expressing their physical skills.  Amanda has an insatiable desire to live a fulfilled life. She pursued a professional tennis career until an injury forced her to re-evaluate and functional fitness has become her sport of choice. She has more than 15 years’ coaching experience working with a wide variety of population groups. In 2016, she graduated from University of Auckland’s (New Zealand) medical school and before that, she completed a Bachelor of Health Science (Physiotherapy).

Caitlyn McClelland
@caitlyn_mcclelland

Coach Caitlyn has been super active her whole life. From competing in high-level netball and basketball as a teenager to powerlifting, bodybuilding and CrossFit’ting into her adult years. After becoming a personal trainer and Les Mills Group Fitness Instructor for three years, Caitlyn recognised a huge gap between clients training hard in the gym not seeing their expected results: this is when she took an interest in the vital role of nutrition. During her Human Nutrition and Health Sciences studies, Caitlyn found there was so much more to achieving sustainable results than “training hard” and “eating clean”. Her coaching ethos is heavily centred around striking a balance between soul food, whole food and a healthy relationship with food - mind, body and spirit.

Colten Murphy
@coltenmurph

Hailing from the United States, Coach Colten is a data analyst by trade, but is better-known among his friends as a passionate (amateur) cook, breakfast lover and recreational exerciser. He spent his childhood outdoors playing every sport available to him and not much has changed since then.  At college, Colten dabbled in kinesiology studies and started piecing the puzzle of becoming the healthiest version of himself. He also discovered a passion for cooking - and good food, more broadly – as well as CrossFit, in an effort to keep fit (and maintain his competitive edge).  Through his personal experiences and extracurricular studies, Colten learned how to optimally use food as fuel for the body. He now enjoys the flexibility of enjoying his favourite foods, while providing his body the nutrients it needs. Finding what works best for each individual to become their healthiest self is what drives Colten to help others. Flexibility, consistency, and sustainability are some of his main building blocks!

Ellen Di Dia
@ellengracefit

Coach Ellen grew up playing a variety of sports, before taking up competitive bodybuilding and, eventually, finding CrossFit to light her fire. After struggling through years of yo-yo dieting as a teen, she decided enough was enough and dived head-first into learning about proper nutrition. She quickly learned that no food has to be off-limits, and that being flexible with nutrition (and life in general) will yield the best results.    That’s where Ellen’s passion started and then decided to study a degree in nutrition and health.   Now, a nutritionist with a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Public Health, Ellen’s mission is to help others reach their full potential and achieve their health, fitness and lifestyle goals using the tools and knowledge she’s accumulated through university and years of experience.     Ellen is also a group fitness coach at her local F45, and likes to compete in CrossFit competitions any chance she can!

Emma Rogers
@emfitrx

Fitness has always been a big part of Coach Emma’s life – in school, playing just about any sport you can think of, then working in the fitness industry for the last six years.    Emma worked as a personal trainer while studying Human Kinetics and Ergonomics at Rhodes University, South Africa. She then stumbled into, and fell head over heels for, CrossFit and has managed to turn that into a full-time career. She spent time coaching in Hong Kong, before returning to South Africa where she opened her own Affiliate. Through this experience, Emma realised just how important nutrition is; not just for performance, but for obtaining optimal health and wellbeing.   Over the last couple of years, Emma has taken a deep dive into nutrition as a tool to heal her body. She’s a huge believer in healing naturally and, where possible, using whole foods as ‘medicine’. She also has a particular interest in balancing hormones through nutrition, as well as optimising performance.     As a Nutrition coach, Emma hopes to inspire others to fall in love with food and all the benefits of a balanced diet. She aims to provide clients with all the tools they need to develop healthy and sustainable habits that they can continue implementing for the rest of their lives.

Georgia Bevan
@eclipsefuel

Coach Georgia’s aim is to empower athletes, from the “everyday” to the “elite”, to reach their potential by nourishing their bodies and simply enjoying the food they eat. She’s passionate about “health first” behaviours and helping clients achieve realistic long-term changes for their health and life performance.    Georgia grew up in a health-conscious and active household, which led her to represent South Australia in softball for 10 years (from juniors to open age groups) before taking up AFL in 2012. From her first training session, she was hooked and became involved in the groundswell that led to her being drafted in the inaugural AFLW competition in 2017. Georgia is an Inaugural AFLW premiership player with the Adelaide Crows, co-captain of Sturt FC SANFLW, and is currently playing VFLW with Hawthorn FC.   Georgia has always been passionate about sports performance, so a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics (Flinders University, 2015) before becoming an Accredited Sports Dietitian in 2017, made sense for her. Like many young girls, she spent her late-teens dieting and subsequently developed disordered eating habits. Through her dietetics course, she learned the value of food as fuel, which now plays a vital role in helping her juggle her professional and sporting careers.    After uni, Georgia learned about the “non-diet” approach and intuitive eating, and she began to heal her relationship with food and her body. This ultimately led to an increase in strength, fitness and mental health with less focus on body composition goals.

Coach Jess is a Registered Nurse who’s worked with a pretty diverse patient population throughout her career.

She now trains in Pilates and mobility movement, and eats to help fuel these practices.   Jess’s coaching focuses on the balance between lifestyle, values and individual goals. She loves making good movement and wholesome food approachable and attainable for clients, with an emphasis on sustainable habit change.

Lauren Behle
@lbehle

After more than 17 years as an ER nurse, Coach Lauren has seen firsthand how those who don’t make time for wellness, will eventually have to make time for illness. She’s been involved in health and fitness her whole life and fundamentally believes that nutrition is the key to healthy function and optimal metabolic balance.

This has been personally life-changing for her and prompted her passion to help others. Lauren deeply values the opportunity to help people improve their overall wellness and to help them be the best versions of themselves. It’s about empowering people to build foundational habits that improve mind, health, and wellness to last a lifetime.

Oliver Plucinski
@ollyplu_cft

At the start of his own health and fitness journey, Coach Oliver (Olly) tipped the scales at 117kg and, more importantly, he was very unhappy. He undertook a total lifestyle change (no mean feat!) and not only lost a lot of extra weight, he also started achieving his fitness goals.  Over the last seven years, Oliver developed a passion for CrossFit. It was soon after he started that he began to understand how fundamental nutrition is to performance, and now he loves using his knowledge and experience to help others do the same. Oliver's specialty lies in getting a deep understanding of his clients’ goals and taking a hands-on, holistic lifestyle approach to support them along the way.  Oliver loves to keep fit doing CrossFit (he’s currently Head Coach at CrossFit Cartel) but the real fun comes when he’s able to get outside road biking, hiking and skateboarding as much as possible.

Coach Paige has always been passionate about the world of health and fitness, and through her own journey, has discovered the freedom that healthy living brings. She uses her own experiences to help her clients grow to their full potential and live their best lives. To Paige, 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. She’s worked with everyone from athletes with bad-ass 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 firsthand). Paige puts her heart and soul into every client she works with. She provides a combination of tough love and sisterly support, tailoring individual plans that consider each client’s uniqueness.
