Oh the dreaded plateau…

Oh the dreaded plateau…
 
You’ve been working hard on your fitness game and it paid off. The pounds started to drop! And then one day your results stopped. You keep putting in the same effort without any sign of improvement. 
 
You’ve hit a frustrating plateau. 
 
Or have you? Before you blame a fitness plateau for your lack of results let’s critically consider the following:
 
1. Your Diet: It’s human nature to begin to slip on your nutrition after a few weeks of stringent diligence. A small treat here, and a bite of something there, and before you know it you’ve fallen back into old eating habits.
 
If your results have stopped then take the next few weeks to track your nutrition and hold yourself accountable for every bite. 
 
2. Your Workouts: If your nutrition has truly stayed on point then your workouts could be the problem. Are you slacking on the final few reps? Have you reduced your overall intensity in the gym?
 
Did you skip a few sessions last week? Before you blame a plateau for your reduced results take a really hard look at your effort in the gym.
 
Rededicate yourself to pushing as hard as you can. 
 
3. Your Sleep: This is a tough one for so many people, but you simply must be getting adequate sleep in order to lose fat and develop muscle. Your body needs close to eight hours of sleep each night in order to recover from your workouts and to maintain balanced hormone levels.
 
Getting to bed on time is vitally important to your fitness results. 
 
If you have tackled the three steps above and still don’t see the number on your scale moving in the right direction, then move on to these next plateau-busting steps…
 
4. Track Your Efforts: It’s time to get meticulous with tracking your fitness efforts, from exactly what your workouts consist of, to exactly what and when you eat in order to constantly improve.
 
Make it your goal to outdo yourself every day.
 
If you’re constantly performing better today than you were yesterday, then your plateau will quickly become a distant memory. 
 
5. Track Your Results: Simply checking your weight on the scale is not a thorough enough measurement for your progress. Start tracking additional metrics for change. Take your measurements.
 
Have your bodyfat tested. You can always call us and we will take them for FREE.
 
Take pictures of yourself weekly. It’s important to be fully aware of how your body is changing as a whole unit, not just the number on the scale. You may be surprised to find that your body fat has been dropping while your weight has stayed the same.

4 Worst Breakfast Items

July 23, 2018 by  

Don’t get caught eating one of these 4 things for breakfast:

 
 
Breakfast pastry: muffins, doughnuts, bear claws and croissants sure taste good with coffee, but all those refined carbs are going to cause unwanted weight gain.
 
Granola Bars: watch out for the breakfast bars that claim to give you fiber, vitamins and minerals. Check the number of carbs and sugars on the back of the label – most contain the same sugar as a pastry.
 
Cereal: here’s another popular breakfast item that has tons of sugar lurking beneath its surface. Only eat cereal that has no added sugar and that contains some protein and healthy fat.
 
Drive Thru Breakfast Sandwich: don’t even think about heading to the drive thru for a quick breakfast sandwich. Instead grab a hard boiled egg from home to enjoy on your commute.
 
Healthy eating is only half of the fitness formula.
 
Eat a healthy breakfast and then come workout with me.

Keeping The Weight Off

July 9, 2018 by  

 
 Well It takes dedicated hard work to drop a significant number of pounds. But afterwards it’s incredibly easy (and frustrating!) to find those pounds creeping back on.
 
Maintaining fat loss is certainly possible, however it does require that you remain vigilant with your healthy routine.
 
During the coming days I will share with you 5 secrets to maintaining your amazing body transformation for life. Think of these as your own personal lifestyle rules and stick with them at least 90% of the time to keep your body healthy and hot.
 
Hot Body Secret #1: Don’t Eat Just To Eat (know your limits)
 
There is no place in your healthy lifestyle for mindless snacking. I’m talking about a tub of popcorn at the movies or a bag of chips in front of the TV. All the calories ingested from mindless snacking have to end up somewhere…and that somewhere is around your waist or on your thighs.
 
Snacks are fine when you are aware of how much you’re eating in order to balance it with the rest of your meals for the day.
