Derek Talbott

Welcome to the Shifted Approach Health Coaching page. My name is Derek Talbott and I am an adventurer, ultra-runner, and a Primal Health Coach.
I specialize in helping middle aged men, ages 30-55 who are overweight, have high blood pressure, high triglycerides, low testosterone, chronic pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, insomnia, exhausted, tired all the time and want to get their life back to a new normal of optimal health, and a life full of energy and vitality and feel better than you ever have.
Maybe you want to do something epic that you never thought possible or you’ve had something in the back of your mind for years but your health just isn’t the best to do it, or you want to climb a 14,000 foot peak, run a 100 mile race, hunt for elk in the mountains, or hell maybe you just want to be able to get off of the couch without getting winded and hurting like you’ve been hit by a fully loaded Mack truck, or just maybe, you want to be more bad ass than you already are. If that’s you, I can help!
I will help you create a long-term action plan to optimal health and fitness through a Primal Low Carb High Fat, Ketogenic, and Carnivore lifestyle approach. The work you do now will serve you well into your retirement. Invest in your own body and mind’s 401k. What goods retirement if you can’t enjoy it too its full potential?

“How long are you going to wait before you demand the best for yourself?” 


Life Is An Adventure!

Where will yours take you?

“The true man is revealed in difficult times. So when trouble comes, think of yourself as a wrestler whom God, like a trainer, has paired with a tough young buck. For what purpose? To turn you into Olympic-class material.”

About Me

I am former infinitely dirty bulking wanna be bodybuilder turned healthy and fit ultrarunner, and I have always had a passion for fitness but could never figure out the nutrition side of it. While following all the advice in the muscle building magazines I could read, I still struggled to ever get lean. I would just feel miserable. That all changed in June of 2016, and I haven’t looked back since. It has led me to being a Primal Health Coach, and wanting to help other men just like me succeed once and for all at being healthy and fit for a lifetime. No more struggling! If that sounds like you, contact me and lets talk. I can help guide you.
