Top 10 Exercises to Burn Fat (belly, hips and arms)

It’s summer and I’m sure you’ve at least had to put on the dreaded bikini or bathing suit so far this year, or you’ve remained more covered up that a US soldier in the deserts of Afghanistan! I wrote a blog the other day “Burn Fat for 3 Days (in only 20 minutes)” explaining the importance of not including the treadmill in your weight loss efforts and how you could be wasting your time! Instead new research continuously shows that full body,[…]

Burn Fat for 3 Days (in under 20 minutes)

When it comes to fat loss, slow and steady loses  the race. “According to American research published in the journal ‘Obesity,’  men and women who did 300 hours of cardio over the course of a year lost an  average of only 5 pounds,” Craig Ballantyne, owner of TurbulenceTraining.com,  said. “That’s 60 hours of cardio to lose one pound!” More intense  training — in shorter bursts — burns calories more quickly and burns more fat  overall. And unlike long, slow cardio[…]

Avoid the fads, do what works

Blog post written by a current diet coaching client: SlimFit Diet…its worth it. Upon receiving the products I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m on day four of using Derek Kuryliw’s SlimFit Diet A.M. Metabolizer and P.M. Purifier and I have to say I am quite impressed. The second day of taking the SlimFit Diet products I woke up much earlier than usual with a bit more wakefulness about me and of course I knew the Purifier was working because[…]

Every Bit of Progress Counts

Only a tiny loss this week.  I know some people think that a few inches is quite significant, but it’s not quite what I need to lose per week so I’m a little behind at the moment.  Hopefully if I do a few extra high intensity cardio sessions it might be better next week. This week has been a long one.  Training has been hard work. I am on low carbs, I am pretty tired at the moment, so it[…]

Do You Fear Success?

Guest post by a current client- It seems odd that people would be afraid of success, yet in reality it happens all the time. For me, it’s been a constant struggle. This fitness journey is proving to be more of an internal struggle than a physical one. I am fully capable to physically succeed; I can push my body over its limit. However the emotional journey devours me. Accepting the fact that I truly can be successful in this journey[…]

Choose the Lesser Evil

Life, just like fitness requires balance. Fitness is never ending. There is no final destination of optimal fitness. We do know what the side effects of a lack of fitness are though. Sickness, disease, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disorders and ultimately death. So what are the side effects of fitness? Health, happiness, confidence, strength, endurance, vitality, good looks and ultimately death. ….Whoa, whoa, whoa….did I say death is a side effect of fitness? How morbid! If you haven’t grasped this concept[…]

Fitness success comes in all ages, shapes and sizes

“I’ve tried everything and never see a change” “No matter what I do, I can never lose this stupid belly.” “I feel better but I’m not sure I see a change.” Does any of this sound familiar? These are exact comments from 2 of my longtime bootcampers, April Kalloch and Andrea Ciciretti. These 2 bootcampers also happen to be our top 2 finishers in our recent 21 Day Beach Body Jumpstart fitness challenge. The rules were simple, on day 1[…]
