Frequently Asked Questions

GAIN Nutrition’s mission is to provide bespoke and affordable online nutrition coaching.

GAIN Nutrition was founded by Sam MacIntosh, a certified nutrition specialist and weightlifting coach who wanted to offer affordable online/hybrid nutrition coaching to members of GAIN Fitness. What started as a small project in Norwich, UK has now turned into an international affair in the short space of five months, with a reach well beyond the gym. Sam coaches everyone from post-menopausal women struggling to lose fat to national and international athletes across many sport disciplines.

GAIN Nutrition is based within GAIN Fitness in Norwich, UK.

TRANSFORM is our long-term body transformation program that guides you through revolutionary—yet sustainable—changes in your eating and lifestyle. It’s powered by Precision Nutrition’s ProCoach app software, and focuses on fat loss for life.

As a TRANSFORM client, you’ll be checking in daily online for 5-10 minutes, learning new nutritional habits every two weeks via a scientifically proven nutritional curriculum. You’ll provide progress photos and measurements, and will give regular feedback to ensure the programme is working for you. You’ll also benefit from our dedicated client support Facebook group with an exclusive recipe pack delivered each month, regular live Q & A webinars, and peer-to-peer support.

We aren’t in the business of fad diets. Through ProCoach, we’ll teach you doable daily actions designed to fit into a busy lifestyle. We’ll help you bring health and fitness into your life in a way that works for your life and your body.

There are three levels of TRANSFORM membership available:

  • Online Only (only open for entry twice per year),
  • Plus
  • Premium

All plans include a personalised nutrition plan, feedback, and support via ProCoach, the online system that has helped over 50,000 people lose over 1,000,000 lbs of body fat and create lifelong habit change. You’ll also be granted entry into our exclusive clients group on Facebook for recipes, tips, regular live Q & As with Sam, and more.

If you choose Plus or Premium, you’ll also have regular calls with Sam for more extensive troubleshooting and support. If you’re based in or near Norwich, you will have the option to see Sam within her office at GAIN Fitness. You can find more information on what’s included in each package on the Which level of membership is right for me? FAQ below.

If you’re a self-starter and/or on a budget, start with our Online Only plan – but move quick if it’s open at the moment as it sells out quickly. If intake isn’t open, you’re welcome to join the waitlist. We only open intake for Online Only twice a year to keep client care to an absolute maximum, and we cap intake for the same reasons.

If you need more accountability or just know you’ll have a lot of individual questions and/or need some face-to-face time with Sam, go with Plus.

For more frequent face-to-face accountability, advanced troubleshooting, long conversations and advanced nutritional counselling and coaching hours with Sam, go with Premium.

At the end of the day, everyone gets a plan, access to the PN Nutrition Curriculum, and coaching engineered for their individual needs with opportunities to get their questions answered.

  • Online Only: £69 p/m
  • Plus: £99 p/m
  • Premium: £129 p/m

We’re confident you won’t find nutrition coaching so comprehensive for anywhere near this price. That’s the point. We want people from all walks of life to benefit from our support.

Yes. Subscription is charged monthly, with a six-month minimum term from initial sign-up.

TRANSFORM isn’t a fad diet. This is a one-and-done programme: digging in and getting the results you’ve wanted all your life for the rest of your life. We expect your commitment to reflect that. With that said, a year-long sign-up can seem intimidating for some. So six months it is.

TRANSFORM is for individuals who want to get healthier, fitter, and stronger—and stay that way.

If you want to:

  • lose weight and body fat
  • build strength
  • improve your health
  • and learn how to do all of the above for LIFE, we want to work with you.

We don’t give you a crazy meal plan or rigid programme to follow; instead, we help you build habits that will get you permanent and long-lasting results. Like we said, we’re not into fad diets or “lose weight/gain muscle quick” schemes.

We provide you with personal accountability, a structured nutritional program to follow, and a highly experienced coach to help keep you consistent and on-track.

If you very rarely struggle with staying consistent with your exercise or eating habits, we don’t recommend the TRANSFORM route.

If you’re an elite athlete looking to become the better in your sport, take a look at Next Level, a programme more suitable for your needs.

Precision Nutrition is the home of the world’s top nutrition coaches. They’re Sam’s “alma mater” and have been coaching clients and certifying professionals for more than a decade.

They’re considered the world’s leading experts in nutrition coaching. They’ve tested the ProCoach app and nutritional curriculum with nearly 100,000 clients who’ve transformed their bodies and health in amazing ways. And now, GAIN Nutrition is delivering their proven methods to you with our own unique twist.

Precision Nutrition’s year-long nutrition curriculum is delivered to you in micro doses via the ProCoach app, as outlined in the demo video above. A PDF of the full 52-week curriculums for men and women are available on request.

Here’s the thing. The shortage in today’s world isn’t information. It’s implementation. No one ever transformed their health by reading more books or articles. Or from watching a documentary. Or from taking a class.

Change happens through action.

You can try another diet book or read a bit more –  and if you get great results with those tools, that’s awesome.

But if you’re having trouble putting the information you know into action (which we have found to be the case with 98% of our clients), TRANSFORM is for you.
