“When I first signed up with Greg I was completely oblivious to what counting macros meant or looked like – all I knew was a girl that I worked out with counted them and she looked amazing so I was interested. I work out 6-7 days a week and while I felt like I was in pretty good shape before, I did not feel like I looked it and was not toning like I wanted. I knew I probably needed to lose 8-12 pounds to see the results I was hoping for. Greg was extremely helpful in explaining how the program worked and understanding my goals. Within the first week of starting his program I immediately starting feeling better. I started having more energy during my workouts, sleeping better (and I never thought I had an issue before) and started to realize how much I was snacking previously without even realizing it. Greg had a lot of helpful videos and feedback to guide me through different social events I had going on so I could still live my life and reach my fitness and weight loss goals at the same time. Eight weeks later and I feel like a different person. I lost the weight I wanted to, started to show the definition I had been looking for and now feel like I actually understand what “eating well” means and looks like. The best part about Greg and Myobrain is that the program is sustainable. I didn’t starve or deprive myself and still saw results. There is still progress I would like to make to achieve the lean look I desire. And for once I feel motivated and encouraged that it is possible because of the things I learned through this program. Signing up with Greg & MyoBrain was one of the best decisions I have made for myself and I cannot recommend their program enough!”
“I contacted Greg because I was so frustrated with the changes, or lack there of, in my body after years of being a dance studio owner, runner, and now Crossfitter. I was becoming stronger in my work outs and lifting but just not seeing any changes in my body composition or muscle mass. “Soft Skinny” is the word everyone chose for me. My self esteem was bottomed out and I couldn’t understand how everyone else could change their bodies but not me. Greg put me on a nutrition program and did my programming, and I have followed it almost exactly for 6 months. Obviously I have made a few bad food choices over the months, but this only works if you do what he says. I also had shoulder surgery the month after I started with him and he modified and scaled my programming perfectly. I truly had no idea the changes that had occurred until I did my side by side pictures. I am so grateful for Myobrain and what it has done for me in terms of strength, confidence, and body changes and can’t wait to see the changes yet to come!”
“Where does a guy start, Ive struggled with my weight my entire life. Tried every “easy way out” trick in the book nothing seemed to help since after all eating has been a life long hobby. I was introduced to crossfit then soon after the Keto diet, lost weight but still wasn’t happy with where I was until McKay. She took me under her wing and introduced me to proper nutrition. She’s changed my life and I’ll be forever grateful! The proof is in the pictures. 12 weeks and the beginning portion was reversed dieting. I truly look forward to continued work with her and where she can help take me!
Thank you McKay!”
“Getting the opportunity to work with McKay on understanding nutrition and using food to fuel my body has been a life changing experience. During my time working with McKay, I lost weight, performed better in the gym, had increased energy, and felt better about life in general. McKay helped me positively change my relationship with food and gave me the necessary skills to make an effective and sustainable life style change. McKay is kind, caring, and compassionate. I’m fortunate to have her in my life!”
I've been with Greg at Myobrain for 4 years now for powerlifting training. Greg has really made a huge impact on my lifting journey. He programs my lifts weekly and pushes me past what I think I'm capable of. He also keeps me in check by giving me light weeks so I don't overtrain or get injured. I've made huge progress because of Greg's training methods including state record in squat and deadlift in my weight class with greater goals in the future. He is always professional, open minded, and detail oriented. He also came to all my meets to support me which is just awesome. I couldn't ask for a better coach. -Jennifer Li
I got started with MyoBrain March of 2018, and I have lost roughly 35 pounds and a lot of fat and inches. I gained a lot of weight during nursing school and couldn’t seem to loose it. I had tried a couple of different fad diets and nothing was helping. I had seen some people at my crossfit gym tracking macros and had great success. Myobrain is a great program because it teaches lifestyle changes that can be maintained. Weekly email updates keep you accountable and on track, and Greg changes your macros as needed based on weight loss/gain and goals. I highly recommend this program to anyone!!!! It’s worth the money for sure!
"MyoBrain and working with Greg was one of the best decisions I have made. It was more than just numbers and tracking, it was education that helped me get my body looking and feeling better than ever. And now I know how to make better nutritional choices while still getting to do the fun things I enjoy doing with friends and family. "
I have always eaten whatever I want. To an extent. I know what is good and what is bad for me but I have never dieted. I never counted or even kept track of what I was eating during the day until I started dealing with macros.
August of 2015, my appendix ruptured and I was misdiagnosed so I tiny problem became a HUGE problem. I got very, very sick! I lost 28 pounds in 12 days. I was gross. Ha.
For the next few months I couldn't do anything active at all. I wanted to gain some weight back without getting fat! I heard about Greg, Myobrain and his whole macro thing so I decided to email him with some questions.
I signed up with him and have been with Myobrain ever since. At first I hated it haha. I had to eat so much food. It was hard. But! I gained my weight back and didn't get fat...My goal.
I still enjoy counting macros and knowing how much food I'm eating or not eating. It has really helped my performance in CrossFit. I eat more than I ever have. I'm strong, my energy level stays high and I still manage to stay lean. I love it!

As a gym owner and avid lifter I am constantly asked questions regarding nutrition. Greg has been vital in the development of my clients at Kansas City Strength & Conditioning. Several clients of mine have used MyoBrain over the past year and the clients that use Greg for nutrition consultations have progressed significantly more compared to my clients that don’t’.
Personally, using MyoBrain, I have been able to make substantial strides in regards to my body composition and physique. 12 Months ago I weighed in at 210 lbs. and my body fat percentage was around 15%; one year later & I now weigh 175 lbs. at roughly 6% body fat. I am lucky to call Greg my nutrition coach.
Working with Greg not only made me more aware of flexible eating, but also gave me the opportunity to share healthy eating ideas and alternatives to my clients and athletes. Since Greg brought MyoBrain into HomeBase our performances and body compositions have taken a positive change and has made a positive impact on our community. Greg's knowledge and his ability to make healthy eating fun is effective and educational. Thank you MyoBrain!

One of the things I really liked about the program was how organized they were. It felt like I was able to pick up on the system, and once I figured it out I could continue to hit my macros and see instant results!! There wasn't really anything I didn't like. I am a visual learner and there were many things on the program as well as things that you sent me additionally. It was very efficient! I love your business and thanks for all the help you have given me!!

I've been overweight most of my adult life. About four years ago, I successfully lost nearly 50 lbs by following the paleo diet. Around this time, I also joined a Crossfit gym. With the support of the Crossfit community and the avoidance of "non-paleo" foods, I was able to keep it off.
Then life happened. I started to miss some of the foods I used to eat. They started to creep back into my diet and the pounds started to creep back. My clothes stopped fitting and I didn't like what was happening to my body.
Greg came to my gym and talked about flexible dieting. He told us that no food should be off limits. He talked about the importance of eating a good balance of macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, and fat).
As a birthday gift, my husband agreed to let me sign up for nutrition consulting. Greg met with me to answer all my questions and set me up with a plan. I was able to see results right away! As long as I followed his plan, I did very well.
The great thing about MyoBrain, is that he has also built a very fun community that answers your random questions and provides support. I've made some new friends as a result!
I highly recommend giving this a try. If you can follow instructions, you can succeed at flexible dieting. I've been able to develop positive and healthy eating habits and I am more mindful of how I put together a meal.
I met Greg Farris back in college at Emporia State University. Like many new and young health professionals I was extremely narrow minded about the whole fitness industry and could not fathom how “flexible” dieting could possibly be a right way to get healthy. After competing my first bodybuilding show nearly two years ago, following a typical cookie-cutter diet and exercise routine, I finally decided there had to be another way.
Greg finally convinced me to join MyoBrain and I don’t know why I ever waited! That’s when I finally jumped on the flexible dieting. He is extremely passionate, knowledgeable, and hands on in all aspects of fitness and nutrition. He’s more than just another person with a degree and certification claiming to be an expert.
Upon joining, my initial goals were to become more knowledgeable about DUP exercise programming, increase strength, and also improve body composition. Since working with Greg my strength, form and body composition have all made significant improvements all the while being extremely flexible with my nutrition. We have a plan to work towards another bodybuilding show in the near future, and I cannot think of any person I would trust more than Greg Farris and the MyoBrain team!
Greg Farris is not just an intelligent coach that understand the science and the importance of flexibility when it comes to health & fitness, he's also a true gent and humble coach. With Greg's guidance I can focus on other areas of my life, knowing I am in secure hands, this is invaluable to me. Currently under 20 weeks out from my first natural bodybuilding show, doing 1 cardio session a week, eating almost 3000 calories and I can still go away on holiday with my girlfriend. That's enough evidence that Greg is a terrific coach and I hope to replicate his skills in my own coaching.
My goal was simple, to get stronger. Over the past 4 months Greg has helped me increase my meet deadlift by 66 lbs (385 to 451) and squat 35 lbs (370 to 405.) In addition to great programming Greg and team MyoBrain have helped build my confidence alongside my strength. A benefit not typically seen in the strength coach job description and is what, for me, makes MyoBrain the place to be.
I began working with Greg with 8 weeks left of my prep for my physique show. I expressed I wanted to compete in powerlifting as well as being up lagging body parts after my show. I've been 3 months post competition and my strength is shooting up like crazy, seems like every training session I hit a PR. Greg customizes everything toward your needs and is extremely hands on. Gives you all the tools to succeed and reach your goals. I am extremely happy I came across Greg at Myobrain!
