Stressed out?

11 Nov

In my 13 years as a personal trainer, people walk into a session either stressed out or at a bottom in their lives, at a bottom with weight loss or in their personal lives outside of physical fitness.

I have never heard a client say “I feel terrible,” or “I am more stressed out,” after a training session, In fact after getting in a great workout my clients tell me that they feel so much better. Studies have proven over and over, that when we elevate our heart rate and work our muscles we feel better, we are creating brain function and detoxing and so much more.

I know it takes a lot of work to get in the door, get out of that comfort zone, hitting a bottom is vulnerable, that’s why I like to create an atmosphere that says, “come as you are” I will meet you where ever you’re at.

Hard work pays off ……… and stays off! 70 pounds down!

4 Jan

Hello Everyone, I wanted to share a clients story with you, or I should say journey. This is what seventy pounds down looks like.

I will call him John. I  have worked with John for 2 years now. When John first came to me he was active, had a gym membership and was busy dealing with everyday life events, taking care of someone with a terminal illness, walking his dog, yard work, and working his job.

In the beginning he trained just once a week with me, we would do full body workouts getting his core strong, working on cardiovascular training. John was strong from all of the lifting he did over the years – it was time to take his workouts to an athletic level of training. We needed to increase his core work and challenge his heart more, after all, the heart is a muscle too and it needs to be worked. We did circuit training, lifting weights and getting the heart rate up all in the that one hour workout, training in both systems of the body, the anaerobic and the aerobic, burning fat and building muscle. He would show up to every session and put in a great workout.

John would bring his food journal so we could see what was going on with his nutrition. I would make notes and suggest foods to add or take away. The biggest change was cutting back on flour, sugar, alcohol; you could call it harm reduction in the beginning and  then he cut them out completely. John started adding more exercise to his life (his homework): biking to the gym instead of driving, doing more spin and core classes, running, and then taking his nutrition to another level. He enjoys cooking – this is the battle: getting clients to cook! John brings food when he is biking in an event, he will bring sweet potatoes and  salmon or chicken that he cooked, this is AMAZING! John is not relying on the junk that is provided at these events, a gold star example of clean eating!

I am so proud and so honored to witness John’s journey.  Watching him make his eating and exercise a lifestyle, keeping off the 70 pounds and not going up and down like a roller coaster. John has such a passion and drive for life and adventure. He told me last week, “I feel better than I did in high school at 56.” WOW! Yes, “we can move better feel great at 56.”

This is an athlete here, strong core, muscle mass, cardiovascular training is top notch, moves like an athlete. ” I looked at him in the eyes and said, “John you are an athlete”. I always say, “We can take back our health and our lives, it will happen when you’re ready.”
