Over the years, I’ve fine-tuned my coaching approach toward my clients, based on constant research and a desire to go beyond mainstream advice and delve deeper into fitness and nutrition. I personally don’t really have this amazing success story, as far as I didn’t lose 100 pounds to get the way I am now. I just simply wanted answers. My research has led me to where I am today and also provided an effective and health-based philosophy. Here’s what I have to say about my approach and getting results:
At the end of the day, we all should be trying to get as healthy as you possibly can. That’s the only thing that’s ever going to make sense, regardless of your goal. If your goal is just to look really good in a bikini, and that’s the only goal you have and that’s as deep as you ever intend to get with it, it doesn’t matter if you don’t pass through health. Any results you get will only be temporary.
The success of my approach is based on a variety of factors that all work together. I never and have never separated the concepts of exercise and nutrition and sleep and stress. Those are all components of creating a healthy human. To pretend that one of them is more important than all the others and can be your saving grace all by itself is ridiculous.
So that sounds great in principle, but people always wondered how I actually achieve this success with clients. Here are two things that I help clients with in order to attain remarkable results:
Although I encourage a holistic approach to fitness, at the same time nutrition is a cornerstone for my clients. The results that you see here are at least eighty percent nutrition. If you think you’re gonna be able to come here and out-train bad nutrition, you’re going to have to rethink that.
However, I don’t simply tell people what to eat and what not to eat. I also offer nutrition classes that are free and open not only to gym members but also the public. I do this because I want people to come and learn and bring their friends and family, those people they need on board in order to change.
In terms of physical conditioning, I believe the most important factors are strength, walking, and mobility. Metabolic conditioning – a mix of HIIT and sprint training – is the icing on the cake. First and foremost is gaining strength and re-gaining mobility.
This approach has produced some impressive numbers, particularly for the ladies. Seventy percent of the women in the gym deadlift over 200 pounds, and I can think of at least two female clients over 52 who can do a strict pull up. This is the stuff that gets me out of bed in the morning…Getting someone fit for the first time in their life at 52 years old.
Thanks for reading. This is what I do, now, what do you do to find the motivation to get what you want?
