Why Recomposer is for Recomp Coaches Only

Recomposer is very specialised, cloud-based software that gives Recomp Specialists the analysis tools they need to prescribe the exact nutrition and training for clients to achieve their goals. It is the software I personally designed – with a LOT of help from my extraordinarily talented partners David Tsuji and Tibor Halasz who built it – to provide the ultimate body recomposition service. It was designed to;

  • help Recomp Specialists do a better job, more easily;
  • deliver a more professional product to Recomp clients;
  • make training new Recomp Coaches more efficient and effective;
  • protect the IP of Recomp businesses and
  • meet a plethora of other Recomp business needs.

Why Recomposer Is Not For Personal Trainers or End-Users

Recomposer doesn’t create programs and diets. It’s a tool Recomp Certified Coaches and Consultants use to create programs and diets and measure the progress of the prescription! Recomposer will only measure the failure of a person who does not know what diet and training to prescribe! And it will highlight their failure in all its glory, graphically and numerically!

The measurements and calculations Recomposer makes depend entirely upon the quality of values fed in by Recomp Specialists. If the skinfold measurements or strength test values are inconsistent or incorrect then every prediction and calculation in the system will be completely useless! To enter useful measurements the user needs a deep understand of what they are measuring. Hence, the restriction to Recomp Specialists.

The results clients get depends on upon the appropriateness of the prescription to their individual needs, and then on their application of that prescription. Recomp Specialists could create diet and training prescriptions on a piece of paper or in a spreadsheet. But for a variety of business reasons, they can do a much better job, more easily, using Recomposer.

When it comes down to it, the Recomposer software provides nothing more than a bunch of numbers on a screen! Those numbers – the quantities of foods and the weights and reps to be done in the gym – need to be given context to the intended recipient by the Recomp Specialist prescribing them! Thats why at Recomp HQ, for example, we invested so heavily to design all new gym equipment to train our clients on. No software can’t make up for inadequate tools or inappropriate application of data. Good numbers used badly are no better than bad numbers!

Personal Trainers are not qualified to prescribe body recomposition diets and fitness exercise is useless for body recomposition. Inexperienced end-users cannot skinfold test their own chest or triceps, cannot know how the strength tests need to be conducted and do not know what diet or program to write for themselves, let alone how it is intended to be executed. But any PT or end-user who is competent at all these things is eligible to become Recomp Certified and use Recomposer!

So in the same way dentists drills are not suitable for the general public to fix their own teeth, Recomposer is not suitable for the general public to create a training program and diet! It is designed for our experts to efficiently create and measure each clients prescription. It doesn’t decide the prescriptions for us!
