Meet the Amazing Coaches You'll Have Access To

If you were in a gym and had a question, you could ask a coach and get an instant response. We re-create that exact same experience, we just do it online in our Members-Only Paragon Community Group. You can post at any time and get a response from the Paragon Team. 

LCK & Bryan personally touch every post that comes through the group, and you’re free to ask questions about our workouts, scaling and modifications, form check videos, exercise and nutrition questions, etc. Meet our other amazing coaches! 

**Note: nutrition coaching often runs something like ~$150-$300+ a month and thus cannot be included in our super affordable $49/month membership. Your Paragon subscription = access to our community and workouts. But you’re always welcome to ask questions, tag our coaches, and we’ll do our best to help and respond! If interested in 1:1 coaching, feel free to reach out to our coaches and see if they have availability (:
