what a 60 day challenge! Done. Final photos and measurements.

20 Jul

Hello Everyone!

This 60 day challenge has been great.
I decided to do this challenge because I had a birthday coming up and I thought why not give myself a birthday gift.
I pushed myself to work harder and mix up my routine, it worked. I gained more strength and muscle, I put together a different routine every week, I inspired my clients to do a challenge for themselves, I brought a fresh workout to each client, paying close attention to the detail of their needs and goals.
My last week was really tuff cutting back on carbs, so hard to do and keeping the SODIUM DOWN, again that is food that has a long shelf life or its in plastic, most frozen foods have A LOT of sodium.
I really took this 60 day challenge serious and thats the reason I was up sunday night before my birthday working out, it was the last thing I wanted to do after putting my daughter to bed but it was the only time I could get in my workout and CARDIO.
Putting this blog out there about my 60 challenge helped me really stay in the game with it, knowing that the final photos better look different with all the talk I am talking, I better have some damn results.
I am going to do a six month challenge next year, now I am going to try and maintain and keep gaining muscle and leaning out, the roller coaster physic.
Thank You to all of my clients and friends for inspiring me to stay healthy for my mind body and spirit.

Wednesday june 8th back workout and food.

8 Jun

Hello Everyone!

I have not taken this long of a break from my cardiovascular training since I have been a trainer for the last 6 years. I am feeling it, more sluggish. I have done at LEAST 20 minutes of cardiovascular training for 6 years 3 OR 4 days a week, talk about tricking out my body.
It just goes to show that when your getting your heart rate up for at least 20 minutes (non-stop) 3 and four days a week it really does help with your energy.

I am a BIG fan of a deadlift and I can not do them at the moment they hurt my back because of an injury (deadlifts are the number one back injury in the gym so be carefull)

ALWAYS WARM UP AND STRETCH BEFORE AND AFTER YOUR WORKOUTS!

Monday’s chest workout – 60 day challenge.

8 Jun

Hello Everyone,

Genetics are everything, having said that some of us are blessed and some of us need to work harder to meet our goals.
Look at your family (if you can) and look at the body you desire and then think about what that person is doing realistically to have that body. There is NO quick fix period.
I find over and over and over that people that have the body you or I desire are working really hard to have it, eating good and doing their cardiovascular training.
