Importance Of Prepping Correctly
From the desk of Jeff Later, IFBB Pro
Preparing to compete in a physique competition is the pinnacle of physical development. The sport/art has grown in popularity in recent years, due to the creation of new divisions. This has brought a lot of excitement and a lot of new faces. 

Preparing for a competition, no matter the division, requires a lot of hard work and dedication. The decision to compete is a big one and many things need to be considered.

The competitive world we live in has led many people to sacrifice nearly everything in an effort to win a trophy. While this sport is demanding and requires some sacrifice in time and energy, certain things should NOT be up for debate. 

I've competed in over 40 shows and coached thousands of others to the stage. If experience has taught me anything, it's that health should never be compromised just to win a trophy.

I put an emphasis on education - learning about nutrition, developing good habits, and avoiding heavy restriction. 

This leads to a healthy post-show recovery and results you can keep, instead of looking good for one day. 

We are passionate about this sport and want to share that with others. We want to show everyone that you can be incredibly successful in this sport and still have a great relationship with food, keep your results, and NOT have any detrimental long-term effects.

The Coaching Team
L8R Elite & L8R Lifestyle was founded in 2010 and is a force in the bodybuilding community.

Thousands of competitors have taken the stage under the guidance of IFBB Pro Jeff Later and his Wife Jenny. They are joined by IFBB Pro Mikka Vallace, Shanna White, Debbie Bird, Matt Moore, and Amy Thomsen. All accomplished competitors and L8R Certified coaches.

Our approach to contest prep takes health into account - a rarity in this sport. Too many people are needlessly run into the ground, metabolically, that carries long-term consequences with it. 

We guard your health, your hormones, your relationship with food, and make the contest prep experience a positive one. 

We have clients using carb cycling, high carb, ketogenic diets, IIFYM, intermittent fasting, and others… we’ll work together to figure out which plan is best for you. It's not a do whatever it takes approach, that leads to severe metabolic adaptation.

Prep with intelligence, with calculation, with precision, and look your best on stage in the best possible health.
You Must Qualify To Join
While others will take on anyone that's willing to pay them, we won't.  Competing is a very serious endeavor and the coach/client relationship is an important one.  
We have an application process for all prospective clients.  We do this to assure that competing is right for you and that we are a good match.
Every application is reviewed carefully and follow up questions are often asked. We want to be sure and we want YOU to be sure that you're ready to give it all you've got and COMMIT to this process and look your absolute best!
