“Programming is effective, challenging, and evidence-based.”

“As a personal trainer myself, I wanted to find someone who could optimize my own results while also enabling me to learn from them in the process. ... I have already learned a huge amount during our time together. Programming is effective, challenging, and evidence-based. Communication is prompt. And queries are answered and addressed in detail. I have found the level of individualization, feedback, and communication to far exceed what I expected from an online coach.” –James

“Attention to detail and frequency of check-ins was hugely beneficial to me”

“I turned to Cody after having a negative experience over 7 months with another online coach, so I was skeptical as to what to expect from him. However, he blew away my expectations and consistently proved he is willing to take the time needed to ensure I have the best possible chance of success. Cody’s attention to detail and frequency of check-ins was hugely beneficial to me, and I believe one of the main reasons for our success together.” – Robert

Robert’s total went from 1330lb (590kg) to 1521lb (690kg)
His squat went from 485lb (220kg) to 573lb (260kg)
His deadlift went from 550lb (250kg) to 628lb (285kg)
His bench went from 265lb (120kg) to 320lb (145kg)

“Working with Aaron has given me invaluable tools that will serve me well beyond my powerlifting career.”

"Dropping 14 pounds and not only maintaining but improving strength is not an easy task and we’ve managed to do both. No fancy tricks, drinks, or quick fixes, just methodical, steady, healthy loss and smart training. Working with Aaron has given me invaluable tools that will serve me well beyond my powerlifting career and that is the biggest win! Plus that whole being 32, having two children and abs isn’t so bad either.” – Jennifer

“Cody helped me return to and surpass my previous strength levels after a devastating injury. Cody has a depth and breadth of knowledge that is extraordinarily impressive. He has a very developed knowledge of strength training. What I expected when I signed up was expertly designed, individualized strength programming. I received that and more. The part I did not expect was Cody’s extreme attention to detail. He listened to what I had to say and made expert adjustments quickly. When I dealt with nagging injuries, he would listen to my complaints and helped me with preventative exercises to avoid those injuries. Cody helped me to set many PRs and ultimately coached me through 2017 USAPL Raw Nationals.” – Alex

Alex’s squat went from 435lb (197kg) to 585lb (265kg).
His bench went from 350lb (159kg) to 355lb (161kg).
His deadlift went from 545lb (247kg) to 645lb (293kg).
His total went from 1330lb (604kg) to 1585lb (719kg).

“I’ve been working with Cody for the last 13 months, and boy has it been a massive learning curve for me. Being a coach myself and having worked with a couple of online coaches before, Cody’s knowledge has not only impressed me but inspired me; this guy is like an encyclopedia. He has been able to understand my body while finely adjusting my volume and intensity based on a very hectic lifestyle and knowing the weak parts of my lifts.” – Dan

Dan’s squat went from 440lb (200kg) to 506lb (230kg).
His bench went from 325lb (147kg) to 365lb (165kg).
His deadlift went from 485lb (220kg) to 518lb (235kg).
His total went from 1250lb (567kg) to 1389lb (630kg).

“I decided to approach Cody for online coaching because I always felt I had untapped potential I wasn’t able to fully realize by myself. When we started working together, we only had a few weeks before a scheduled competition, but we just had enough time to set a baseline and go straight into a peak cycle for my deadlift. It worked beautifully, and I hit an all-time PR of 285kg and won the under-90kg class, a testament to Cody’s scientific and evidence-based methods. Seriously looking forward to continuing the journey…” – Gareth

Gareth set an all-time PR deadlift at 285kg!

“Thank you so much, Cody, for all your hard work and dedication you put into my training program. I hit numbers I had not even dreamed of hitting. I learned a lot about myself as a lifter than I was not even aware I was capable of. We really honed in on some major weaknesses, and I was able to hit PRs in every lift in the gym and at my first national meet. I hit them at an all-time low bodyweight of 110lb. Thank you for believing in me as a lifter and giving me the best program possible. I truly look forward to working with you again in the near future.” – Heather

Heather went from 123lb to 110lb.

Heather’s squat went from 248lb (113kg) to 254lb (115kg)
Her bench went from 138lb (63kg) to 145lb (65kg)
Her deadlift went from 325lb (148kg) to 342lb (155kg).
Her total went from 711lb (323kg) to 740lb (335kg)

“When I first began working with Cody Haun, I had very little knowledge about programming, and my slow progress reflected that. With starting lifts of 265lb, 175lb, and 365lb in the squat, bench, and deadlift respectively, I was very frustrated with my lack of results. Always there for you and pushing you, Cody forced me to work harder and get stronger. Under Cody’s programming, my lifting (and physique) improved dramatically. I learned a lot about weight management and its effect on my physique and performance in the gym. Within several months of working with Cody, I gained insight into programming and autoregulating volume and intensity in my training. Cody changed my life forever. Not only do I look and feel better, but I have also gained a substantial amount of knowledge about training that will stick with me forever. Thank you, Cody!" – Victor

Victor added 50lb to his squat and 75lb to his deadlift

“I’ve been training with Cody for almost two years now, and it has been such a great experience. I have learned a lot from him. Starting with a 4-month cut, then a 12-month mass program, followed by another 6-month cut and reaching our targets each time. I would have never been able to do this without Cody’s knowledge and guidance. For the second cut, I was able to drop 30lb with a body-fat percentage of around 20-25% down to 5-7%. It has been very interesting seeing all the changes I’ve gone through this past couple of years. I will definitely keep working with Cody in the future and cannot wait to see what’s in store next.” – Edward

His squat went from 240lb (109kg) to 360lb (163kg)
His bench went from 250lb (113kg) to 305lb (138kg)
His deadlift went from 255lb (116kg) to 410lb (186kg)
His total went from 745lb (338kg) to 1075lb (488kg)

“Over the course of working almost two years with coach Chris Vann and Cody Haun, I have obtained goals and personal achievements I thought to be long down the road. Their knowledge and understanding of kinesiology has given me opportunities of growth. During my last show prep, I impressed myself with my final package, and I never thought I could get to 5% body fat alone. My overall experience with coach Chris and Cody has been fantastic and very fulfilling.”

Will went from 195lb to 163lb.

“Totally satisfied and blown away with the results. Truly worked with the best people possible and achieved levels I didn’t think were possible of my own body. All due to the genius behind what these men do with training, diet, and positive attitudes.” – Caleb

Caleb went from 195lb to 160lb.

“I was a little bit out of shape (body fat slightly below 20%). But after three months of training under Cody’s guidelines, I lost 17% body mass (88kg to 73kb) and around 10% body fat (below 10%). As if that were not enough, I had some huge PRs during my last overreaching micro after 15 weeks of dieting. Awesome! I am looking forward to my strength phase and becoming even stronger! I can recommend Cody to anyone (from beginner to advanced lifters) who want to get stronger under the best scientific circumstances. He answers fast, frequently, and always has some motivating words to any of my questions.” – Edwin

Edwin went from 194lb to 163lb

“I am currently a student at the United States Military Academy, West Point, and over the past year and a half, I have consistently gone to the gym and have not seen the results that I had hoped for. I reached out to Cody and met with him in person while I was back home in Georgia. There, Cody put me through several diagnostic lifts to gauge where I was at and walked me through how the program would work. I recently finished the 10-week cut that we decided I would begin with. During the cut, Cody provided me with consistent feedback and answered any questions I had regarding the program. After the cut, I had felt leaner than I have ever been. I also saw many of my life maxes increase. As a student at West Point, I am required to take the Army physical fitness test and an indoor obstacle course test. I took the APFT and IOCT around week 8 of the cut and scored the highest score I have ever achieved. As a result of Cody’s conditioning programming, I ran a 12:09 2-mile run and scored a total of 330 on the entire test, which is beyond maxing. .The results I have seen in the short time have exceeded my expectations, and I look forward to continuing to work with Cody.” –Elliott

Elliott went from 192lb to 177lb
