Low back pain – Work out with me in the office

In my 30 minute one-on-one sessions I include flexibility, core work, (but not just core work, I help you get at the deep core), balance, plyometrics, agility, strength, and cardio. I offer variety and knowledge to train you better than anyone else. Different tissues in the body each respond to different workouts based on the principle of specificity or specific adaptation to imposed demand. Including a wide variety of workouts prevents muscle imbalances and ensures that you are improving in all areas of our targeted goals – flexibility, endurance, neuromuscular coordination, body fat loss, posture, strength, and power.

I teach you how to use free weights, kettlebells, bands, and body weight. We have fun and the 1/2 hour goes by very fast.

A new study suggests exercising before breakfast will counter a high-calorie diet.

Researchers in Belgium had 28 healthy, young men consume a diet of 50% fat — 30% more calories than they had been previously eating. Then, they divided the men into three groups: One group didn’t exercise at all; the second group performed four, strenuous hour-long workout sessions after breakfast per week; and the third group performed exactly the same exercise routine as the second, but did so before they ate breakfast.

After six weeks, the non-exercisers gained an average of six pounds. But what was striking is that the group that worked out before breakfast gained no weight, whereas the after breakfast group put on an average of three pounds.

I’ve been working out first thing in the morning for years. I have my UltraMeal protein shake after my workout as my breakfast — working out before putting food into your stomach probably causes the body to burn fat stores. It’s OK to hydrate with water while working out. Sorry to tell all those late afternoon and nightime gym goers!

How do I help clients put on lean muscle while losing fat at the same time?

Q: How do I help clients put on lean muscle while losing fat at the same time?
A: I use UltraMeal by Metagenics as a nutritional breakfast and a snack  protein shake, and I teach my clients how to work out efficiently. My system is based on individual body composition analysis. I use the bioelectrical impedance analysis.

It’s not really dieting – I help clients pick the right food choices and plan positive calorie balance. This helps build  muscle and burn fat. The net result over time is better body composition –  we can measure the results of increased muscle and less fat.

Sometimes I use other supplements  in the program to optimize hormones which improve “fat loss”. The UltraMeal seems to help direct nutrients into muscle cells and pull fat out of fat cells.

Women particularly like this program because the program avoids the classical muscle gain program problem: gaining fat along with the muscle, also known as “bulking up.”  I want to see increased tone along with a lean look. I help you develop lean muscle, not bulk. The look I’m after is not that of a typical bodybuilder. I prefer a slim look.

Using UltraMeal is NATURAL.

The holidays are not that far away and I know people will start thinking about the way they want to look in the New Year. I want you to look good all year round (no “fat season” where you need two sets of clothes); you feel good standing naked in front of the mirror, and you fit in to your favorite pair of jeans.

Q: Does this program require a lot of time in the gym?
A: I give each person a personalised program. I train you knowing your specific requirements so the program fits into your schedule. The workout portion is an intense workout for some, and less intense for others. Your workout schedule could be as much as 6 days a week for up to an hour per session or 4 days a day for 30 minutes, or just 10-15 minutes per day.

I know the tricks for abbreviating workouts so you can get the most out of your time.

I change workout programs every 6-8 weeks. I know the intensity increases & decreases with each workout, depending on your energy levels…this is natural. As long as you train hard a couple days a week, and you are consistent, then you can get amazing results from just 3 -4 brief weight workouts a week.

If you are already lean and want to go all the way to ‘ripped’ then you need more advanced plans. Then I like to teach clients kettlebell training if they are not already doing this.

Between the UltraMeal, the food plan, and my training workouts, this is the most comprehensive fat loss nutrition program that I’ve developed over the last 10 years. 

I can help you:
1) gain muscle while losing fat at the same time
2) gain muscle without gaining fat
