Health Coach Focused On The Applied Science of Lasting Fat-Loss

You need to lose excess body fat, not just weight, and do so without also losing muscle (the source of your longevity).

Hi, I'm Jelena Lakic

A longevity-centric body recomposition coach based in Cape Town, South Africa.

You may know me as the "fat-loss breakthrough" specialist, as I've helped hundreds of individuals just like you lose excess body fat while rebuilding muscle and strength that lasts in record time.

You may also know me as the cofounder of 10X Fitness Coaching, a health-coach certification program in which I help to train and certify over a thousand coaches in the 10X method each year.

Fat-loss Breakthrough, my most popular coaching service, is a 90 min 1-on-1 coaching session that offers instant behavioural-based breakthrough solutions (guaranteed!) for those in need of immediate personalised guidance.

Longevity Recomp, my signature longevity-based body-recomposition program, is a live 6-week group-coaching course designed to help students master the dietary, exercise, and lifestyle habits that make losing excess fat while rebuilding muscle, strength, mobility, and endurance easy and lasting.

Reasons To Work With Me

Nadia Viljoen (6 Weeks)

I couldn't believe that a single resistance exercise session each week coupled with walking produced a sufficient calorie deficit for me to lose 2.2 kg of fat in 6 weeks. As a busy mom this is exactly the advice I needed. I can't wait to see where I'll be in 6 months. Thank you, Jelena. 

Crystal Norton (3 Months)

There's nothing like a DEXA scan to show you what's really going in your body. I can't believe making three simple changes, strength training twice per week, doubling protein, and a small sustainable calorie deficit, allowed me to lose 7 kg of fat and pick up 3 kg of muscle in three months.

Rizel Delano (5 Months)

It wasn't until I did a DEXA scan that I realised how much fat I've gained over the years despite being low-carb and exercising daily. Jelena helped me discover that I've been in a whopping 400 daily calorie surplus for years now. I lost 5.4 kg of fat in 5 months simply by cutting out my nut butters.
