Hey Yall! I'm back. This time to discuss weight loss. When I was in 7th grade, I was 200lbs. The first thing I changed was my eating habits and second to become more active. After two years of healthy eating and my first strength & conditioning program, I weighed in at 148 pounds and went on to compete and letter in 5 sports. After high school, I decided to try olympic weightlifting which eventually lead me to the United States Olympic Education Center in Marquette, MI. So many exciting experiences and they all happened because I decided to make a change.
People come in the gym every day wanting to make a change. During every Fitness Orientation that turns to a weight loss consult, I dig into the four components that make a Successful Program: Nutritional Intake, Supplementation/Vitamins, Cardio Regimens, and Resistance Training Routines. Nutrition is always a priority during these sessions; because in my opinion, nutrition is 80% of success with a weight loss program.
Why is nutrition such a vital component? When thinking about nutrition, we should always remember why we eat. Food is Fuel. We need to eat so that our bodies can create the energy needed to work, play, and survive. When we overfeed our bodies, the excess is stored for a later day. With the extra food, comes the extra pounds.
Next discussion... We'll talk about what you can do to overcome those extra pounds!!!!!!!
Hey yall! I'm Ashley Bisek and very excited to start leaving messages on here. With this first entry, I'm want to congratulate my sister, Amanda, and client, Kaycee, on completion of The INCLINE!!!!!!! For Colorado Springs Natives, you understand the accomplishment. But for those of you who don't quite understand, let me describe the trail.
The Manitou Springs Incline was originally a cable car that took tourists up the side of Rocky Mountain until it was closed in 1990. Since the closing, the rails were removed but the wooden ties remain to prevent erosion of the hill. This makes for one steep trail at approximately a 40% grade and one mile up. Sound Fun yet?!
I myself did not want anything to do with it when my husband and I first moved to Colorado Springs in 2010. But I broke down and gave it a go. Now, I notice more and more clients setting the INCLINE as a summer target. Even when my family comes into town from TX, they can't help but notice the Incline Path up against the Rocky Mountains(you can see it from almost any point in town). It is a popular trail testing not only endurance but character and will.
So to Amanda and Kaycee, AMAZING JOB! I'm proud of both of you! Next time it will be better ;)
