Memorial Day is a day of reflection for me.I think about all those men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrific for our country, allowing us to live freely and make choices. Choices we often take for granted. We are very lucky for their service and what it brings to our lives.What does this have to do with your fitness? Those choices that we are granted, give us the opportunity to change our lives every single day.
Everyday I here and see people saying I want abs. Great goal for sure but what each of these people fail to understand is to have visible abs you must learn how to cook and eat clean. Exercise will strengthen the abs and burn fat, but it will not give you visible abs on its own. Nutrition is the key to any weight loss program and it all begins in the kitchen. Understanding what eating clean means is one of the hardest concepts for people to understand I have found. There are numerous diet plans on the internet, but very few actually explain what eating clean means.
Phen375 is an amazing product. It has helped thousands of people reach their weight loss goals and shed that unwanted body fat.

Have you ever hopped on a piece of cardio equipment and saw a setting that said “Cardio Zone” or something similar? Then you selected that option and you proceeded to workout at a steady pace for 20, 30 or even 45 minutes? Ok, well it’s time to ramp up your conditioning and your kick your weight loss into high gear. No more “Cardio Zone” for you…No…its weight loss and conditioning zone for you from now on!
So today's workout was not lifting in my gym, or running on the treadmill. Nope, it was simply working on some landscaping and working on some parking for my clients. You see, I have an extra parking spot, but wanted to raise it up so that is was more level.
It isn't all about the calories!! It is about the type of food we eat. Unprocessed whole raw foods take more energy=calories to break down. For example, protein takes 20% of it's energy just to break it down. So le'ts say you eat 500 calories of protein a day. Your body only takes in 400 because it took 100 calories just to break down the protein.
Although my title and profession is that of a personal trainer, I really consider myself more of an educator. Due to the conflicting information about health and weight loss, most clients that I meet are misinformed and confused about wellness. In order for weight loss to be permanent and life sustaining, it’s essential to start making connections between our health and daily food choices. Everything that we ingest has a direct cause and effect.
This topic came up last night and, as a trainer, is something that can be very frustrating for the trainer/client relationship.
You are working as a team and workouts and cardio are going great and gains are being made and the body shape is changing.... BUT... the client isn't losing weight.
My personal work with a client starts with setting a fitness/activity goal and a weight goal (if need be).
