I started with Vinny Russo to see what counting macros could do for my physique. Unfortunately, at start of my program I was diagnosed with Lyme disease and no longer able to train and eat as originally planned. Coach VR quickly redesigned my nutritional program into one that would support my specific condition and needs. Vinny has been great to work with, knowledgeable and transparent with his programs. Truly valuable!

I’m a 47 year male and Team Vinny Russo client since April 2014. Prior to joining Team VR I was always into fitness and a healthy lifestyle following various nutrition plans with similar goals each year. The goals were to gain some muscle mass in the cold climate months then lean out for the warm climate months, however my body always reached a certain plateau each year. Having this conversation with a gym friend of mine, she recommended I speak to Vinny Russo and see if his nutritional plan would be a good fit for me. I was skeptical at first as a majority of our communications were via email and photos though after several months of following a specific plan tailored to me (not a cookie cutter plan) I started to see results that were different than what I’ve achieved in the past. Going into the first summer, together Vinny and I were able to get my body into a condition that I recall having in my 20’s. With several communications and plan adjustments Vinny has gotten me leaner each summer for the past number of years which makes me look forward to the coming summer to see how much leaner and tighter I could be.

In addition to the results we achieved thus far what makes me continue to be a client is, first and foremost, Vinny practices what he preaches, his physique speaks for itself. He is in regular communications with his clients by always being available to respond to questions, educate or to simply give positive thoughts. He is always open an honest and willing to help. He takes the time to send out weekly tips and research articles. He sends a personal YouTube video each week to each client with their plan updates. Being together for the amount of time we’ve been, I consider Vinny to be a personal friend.
