Become a Better Version Of Yourself

Wasn’t that fun? Okay, we can continue to the serious part now!
Ladies, you’re expected to be so many things to so many people.
A loving mother to your children. A source of comfort to your partner You might work long hours to support your family, and you might even go to school on top of that.
It never seems like there’s enough time in a day. Bills to pay. Kids to feed. Papers to write. Chores to do. Sometimes life feels like a never-ending To-Do list. It’s not easy to find the time to exercise.
And even if you could find the time to exercise, what are you supposed to do? It’s a scary world out there, full of confusing and conflicting information that doesn’t make much sense.
I’m happy to say I have good news: it doesn’t have to be this way! Fitness doesn’t have to be a stressful, time-consuming bore. The best fitness plan is one that you enjoy doing, and that causes as little interruption to your lifestyle as possible.
Will you do something for me? It won’t take long. Join me in imagining a perfect world.
Imagine a world where eating is about pleasure and nourishment (not math and restrictions).
Imagine a world where exercise is fun and convenient (not boring and stressful).
No more crash diets that promise the world (but don’t deliver).
No more boring cardio that makes you yawn (and doesn’t work).
No more agonizing because you ate “too many calories.”
Crash diets fail every time, jogging doesn’t work, and counting calories is a waste of time.
Why Crash Diets Fail Every Time
Have you ever lost a bunch of weight on a restrictive diet or excessive exercise plan, only to gain it all back as soon as you quit?
Don’t beat yourself up if you have – it’s a common mistake a lot of people make. Crash diets might produce quick results, but it is impossible to sustain them for more than a few weeks or months. And if you can’t sustain it, what’s the point?
Small changes stick better. If you make small changes, they’re not stressful – you almost won’t even notice them.
Keep making small changes over time, and each new change will build on the ones before it. This creates a powerful snowball effect that multiplies fat loss as time goes on.
Fitness isn’t a thirty day program. It’s a life-long journey.
Why Jogging Doesn’t Work
Most people on treadmills don’t push themselves hard enough to create the body they desire. If you can read Pride and Prejudice, watch Oprah, or study for your final during your training, you’re not working hard enough to expect meaningful results.
Don’t get me wrong — jogging is a great lifestyle activity, and it’s definitely better than nothing. But if you’re looking for weight-loss, I have a secret weapon that doesn’t require 60 minutes on the hamster wheel. My clients and I pity the fools wasting an hour a day on the treadmill.
Why Counting Calories Is a Waste of Time
Your metabolism is determined by a limitless number of variables including age, body type, amount of sleep, how active you are, stress levels, etc. (I could go on, but you get the point). It is impossible for any caloric needs equation to account for these variables, thus there is no guarantee the estimate will be at-all-accurate.
Calorie counts used on food labels and restaurant menus are often incorrect. Plus, most people under-estimate their portion sizes, making all that counting pointless.
The nutrition contained in your calories is more important than the total number of your calories.
Conventional Wisdom Has Failed. It’s Time to Accept It and Move On.
Hi! My name is Daniel Wallen. I’m the owner and personal trainer of the Wallen Way.
I help busy women become better versions of themselves. More specifically, I help become fit, fierce, and fabulous.
I wasn’t always the happy guy you see over there. I struggled with my weight for years.
I was bullied as a kid, and as a consequence my confidence and self-esteem was as low as it gets. I hated my body (and myself) for years. I could lose weight for a little while, but it always seemed to come back.
The problem? I didn’t understand that fitness isn’t a 30-day program – it’s a life-long journey.
I would starve myself on a crash diet and exercise until I was so exhausted that I wanted to die. I would lose a bunch of weight, but then I would quit the plan and just gain it back, every time.
I learned from my mistakes, and embraced that fitness is a lifestyle. Small changes stick better. It’s that simple.
The World Is Very Different Now
I have more energy for the important things.
I’m more confident in my body.
I’m a positive example to my baby cousins.
I can even talk to a female without breaking a sweat.
I love this world so much that I want to take you there.
It’s yours for the taking if you want it.
I can’t promise it will be easy, but it will be so worth it.
I Know What It’s Like to Be in Your Shoes. I Remember It Like It Was Yesterday.
Stress and negative thinking controlled my eating decisions, which just made my problems (and waist-line) even bigger.
I wasted more money on diet pills, weight-loss products, and fad diets than I’d like to admit.
I was intimidated by working out and embarrassed by my strength and stamina. I couldn’t even do a single push-up or chin-up when I started.
I can empathize with you, lead you, and encourage you every step of the way.

Do You Have What It Takes?
Spots are limited in my coaching program, because I want to be able to give all of my Wallen Way Warriors the undivided attention that they deserve. Also, I only accept people whom I believe are up to the challenge and committed to improving their health and happiness. These factors come into play when I make the decision to accept someone into the program or not. For those accepted, here’s what you get from me.
Secret Member’s Only Hide-Out
My secret member’s only hide-out is a judgement-free zone that is invite-only and reserved for my online coaching clients. You’ll meet new friends and accountability partners who will encourage you, and you can ask me questions at any time.
Fun, Convenient, Done-For-You Home Training Routines
You’ll receive a full library of exercise instructions and demonstrations, workout logs, and training plans that you can perform at home in around 30 minutes a session. You’ll be done by the time it would take you to drive to the gym.
These training plans include body-weight resistance training (to get strong), metabolic training (to torch fat), and core training (to sculpt your midsection). I also provide full warm-up and cool-down templates, so you’ll never have any questions about what to do.
I use body-weight movements that are fun, playful, and functional for daily life. I also scale them in a way to include beginner, intermediate, and advanced options.
