Our Choice

There’s a new trend going on and it will knock your socks off. 🤔

People actually have options on what types of foods they want to put in their body. You want vegan protein powder? No problem. You want a energy bar with no almonds and dark chocolate? No problem. You want pizza on a gluten free crust? Come on down.🙋🏽‍♂️ The fitness community now has the power of choice vs the industry making it for them. There is an inner awareness growing more and more each day. The benefit of this is we truly learn how to live a balanced healthy lifestyle.🤗🥑🤹🏽‍♂️

Leading The Way

When you’re coming to the gym at 5 A.M. or after a 10-hour work day. When you’re making changes to your diet and saying no to the drive-thru. When you’re doing cardio when it’s the last thing you want to do. You’re not just doing it for yourself, you’re doing it for your family. They see the sacrifices that you’re making for yourself and essentially for them. You’re  showing your family what it takes for a future and healthy lifestyle.

Lead by example, they’re watching

Gluten-free is the Fetti!

All diets are not made equal. I’ve recently been switching out all wheat foods for Gluten-free ones. In week 2 I’ve lost 4 lbs and have discovered that Gluten-free foods are not hard to adjust to. 

This tasty treat calls for Crisco but, I choose butter to replace. It makes pancakes and waffles! 

Enjoy my my friends..

Your way….or Mine?

The bigget challenge for me as a trainer is having clients break old habits. By now everyone has either given up or think they are making huge gains by drinking one less beer on the weekend (leaving the total at 7 rather then 8).

You’ve been doing things how you see fit. Some people are making some solid changes that are going to make for a wonderful summer body.  The rest of you 92% need a new approach. 

Your way is what got you here….lets try my way!

Would love to get some insight to what changes have been working for people!!

Ac·count·a·bil·i·ty

The first month of 2017 is wrapping up. For most people that set a resolution, very few changes have been noticed. In fact, as little as 8% of people will actually see and feel a change from their resolutions. That is an extremely low success rate so I wanted to focus on a huge deciding factor in that success rate… Accountability.

A goal can only be executed when there is accountability to make healthy food choices, cardio and not missing workouts. Not everyone is great at holding themselves accountable. When someone’s not efficient with money, they hire a financial advisor. When in search of a new home, you reach out to a realtor for their expertise. My job as a trainer is to hold you accountable to ensure your success and motivate you along the way. Even if you dont have  a trainer, delegate these responsibilies with a person you trust to keep you on track. A significant other or a best friend. Challenge each other. And make milestones to track the progress.  
There is plenty of time until you showcase your summer body.  Get to it!

Wake Up and Go

​..fasted cardio….woooo!🏃💦💪

The main benfit for a short 15-20 minute fasted cardio session  is targeting fat cells for energy. Anything beyond that minute mark will put you at risk for using amino acids for energy and therefore put your muscles at a disadvantage. 

Do not depend on only this tactic as a healthy meal plan and routone workouts make an all around balanced fitness plan. 

Train Smart my friends!

Beyond Physical Training

💡Weekly Wrap Up🔎1/21/17

Train your body beyond just the physical aspect. Train your brain.  Set meal timers, get sleep and track water. 

All these are subtle support systems to get your body optimizing at the highest  level possible. 

I’m constantly hearing reasons WHY something can’t be done. Train yourself to come up with reasons to HOW something can be done. It’s all point of view my friends. If you can post that perfect  IG/FB photo and find that perfect quote….. you can log your food. Simple.

Stay fit my friends.

Healthy Environments

This week a lot of the focus was environment. This pertaining to who and what you surround yourself with on your fitness journey. 
If you want to obtain a goal, you want to be around like-minded people. The truth is that you can work out hard 5 days a week and then cancel everything out with just a weekend of being off track. 

The times your not in the gym is when true DISCIPLINE is tested. Go into situations with a plan. 

*Pack food

*Eat before

*Do light cardio before a b-day dinner

*Get connected with like-like-minded people

Friends and family do not see you putting in hours and hours of work. So the “just one bite” or “just one bad meal” doesn’t cut it. Stand up for you and your goals. PERIOD.
