Feast or Famine – life of a Personal Trainer

This month in June we may not hit more than -50lbs/fat for the whole month

I’m actually proud of that, most my clients have been on VACATION and having FUN!!!

I want This – and you can have some too

I want to teach people about “body awareness” and how to lose body fat, which starts by “detoxing” the body of extra fats, carbohydrates and sugars.  A person has to be mindful of what goes into the body and how much they want vs. what they need.  There is no other way.

Eat to live, not live to eat.  Choose between quality and quantity.  Quality is more nutritious for the body.  Quantity is to hard on the body because of toxic fat stores.

You have to negate the extra calories (sugar/candy)from the diet if they can not be eaten with control.  You have to be a responsible cookie owner!!

You have to be in control and accountable for your self.  if you think you need help, help yourself.

Self help is the best help.

Must have workout clothes for females, the top 4 – Get Toned

One of the first things I tell women that come to train with me is to wear comfortable clothing.  We do all sorts of different exercises and without the proper attire your workout could suffer.

1. Lululemon Groove Pants

Lululemon Groove Pants

If you’ve never tried Lululemon pants, you must! So much chicer than your average pair of baggy sweatpants, Lululemon’s Groove pants are the holy grail of stretchy pants–they’re thick but not too thick, just the right length, and come in numbered sizes instead of your standard S, M, and L. If you’re a tall girl, you’re in luck–Lulu makes long lengths as well!

One caveat: Groove pants start at $98. But these pants will make any butt, big or small, look FAN-TAS-TIC. Plus, you’ll wear the heck out of them, so the price is worth it! Groove pants are great for yoga or pilates due to their stretchy construction and movable fit, but they can also make a seamless transition to class attire in a pinch–talk about versatile.

Find a Lululemon store and shop online for a huge selection and special exclusives, like the Dark Denim luon pair featured above.

2. Nike Tempo Running Shorts

Nike Tempo Shorts

Available in a plethora of fun colors, Nike‘s Tempo shorts are a favorite pick among female college students, athletes or otherwise. A perennial warm weather favorite, you’ve probably noticed girls on campus in these shorts. If you’re in the market for new exercise bottoms of your own, Tempos are definitely the way to go.

Made from Nike’s special Dri-Fit fabric that wicks away sweat to keep you dry, Tempo shorts feature a 3 inch inseam, built-in briefs, and mesh side panels in contrasting colors. Don’t have time to change before class? Throw on a graphic T, a hoodie, and flip flops for a look that is casual and sporty.

You can find these shorts at all major sporting goods stores, including Dick’s Sporting Goods, Sport’s Authority.  If you prefer to shop online, Nike’s website

3. C9 Champion Sports Bra

Champion Sports Bra

The inexpensive Champion line sold at Target makes my favorite sports bra ever. Their bras fit well, don’t lose their elasticity over time, and provide great support, plus they come in super cute colors and patterns. If you have a large bust, Champion bras might not work for you, but definitely head to Target and try one on just to be sure.

At under $20, these bras are an absolute must have–in more colors than one! Get to your nearest Target store and pick one up, or check out the selection at Target.com.

4. Under Armour HeatGear Tank Top

Under Armour HeatGear Tank

Under Armour’s HeatGear tank tops are great in and out of the gym. They come in a variety of colors, have a comfortable compression fit, cute racerback, built in bra, and a flattering long length.

Of course, these tanks also boast some great technological features, too–the HeatGear fabric wicks away moisture to keep you cool, and the fabric has anti-microbial properties, plus an impressive 30+ SPF sun protection which will come in handy if you’re taking your workouts outside.

While probably not appropriate for everyday classes, in an emergency, the HeatGear top is okay for normal wear, especially because of its long length. True story: when I locked myself out of my house this summer and needed to go to a nearby grocery store to use a phone, I was so glad I was wearing this top and a pair of shorts instead of a sports bra!
