Why do you want to lose weight?

 

I don’t care what you weigh and I’m the personal trainer that tells you that the first day you come workout with me

There are a few different types of weight on your body

  • hair
  • shoes
  • clothes
  • water
  • food
  • muscle
  • fat

 

Most people going to the gym go to lose weight, but its not about what you weigh

When we workout we want to burn fat and build muscle.  Muscle has weight too

Ever hear somebody say “Muscle weighs more than fat?”

They are WRONG – 5lbs of muscle weighs 5lbs, 5lbs of Fat weighs 5lbs right?

We want to increase our weight in muscle bc when we workout our muscle burns fat, the more muscle we have the more fat we burn when we workout

So why do you want to lose weight?

The price you pay for fitness

Personal training is too expensive!!

Since I started personal training 2001 I have heard this so many times!!

I usually don’t argue or try to sell people bc if they are shopping price then they probably aren’t  just ready yet to commit to fitness.

That’s not always true with every person, for all the real salesman out there that know “Selling 101″ I am probably missing it by a long shot but I’m not a salesman, I am a trainer!!

When a perspective clients calls and wants to know price I tell them $99 consultation fee and monthly workout fees or $5 single sessions they sometimes say wow, “that’s too expensive – Why do you have a $99 fee, can you waive that?”

My reply is NO, because I have to know your health history, you goals, your measurements, strengths and weakness.  I just can’t throw you to the wolves and expect you to start losing body fat day 1, there is a process I have to show you, I need to teach you about nutrition for your body and how to workout properly  – other “workout places” waive fees bc they don’t care if you come or not, it’s just a numbers game to them.  Heck some places don’t care if you even get hurt, they have physical therapists waiting because they know you will!!

GT is different, my well-being depends on you succeeding, if you don’t show up, I don’t feed my family

If you think paying personal training or GT Fitness is “too expensive” I have 4 questions to ask you

  1. Is there an unhealthy habit you can remove from your life to make room for your wellness goals?
  2. How much do you spend eating out a month? Can you go out 2x less a month, so you can afford your wellness/body fat goals?
  3. How much can you afford, I can make a package to suit your financial needs?
  4. What’s $xx off of your pay check?

Let’s face it, sometimes people just want a deal!!

I got one of those if you want

Real weight loss is Fat, not mass

Another 10 Day Food Challenge is coming to an end, and we will be measuring out to track progress.  I didn’t make the challenge up to be about losing weight, I made it to help people be more accountable & thoughtful about how they are eating to nourish thier body, as a result you WILL lose weight and inches compared to what you were doing before & it works!!

Average person will drop 3lbs.-5lbs. of mass in 10 days and lose 2″-4″ in the Abs & hips – that’s a significant difference for any body

Weight loss can be defined as MASS – mass can be divided up into water, fat, muscle, skin, hair, clothes, shoes, pants, so on and so on.   Losing the weight is easy if yo take off shoes, or starve yourself for a week, but losing FAT weight takes a little more effort

A 10 Day Food Challenge isn’t a cure all and the answer to all the weight problems but a way to get you focused and doing the little things that add up to real fat loss

Check out this picture of 2yrs weight loss, see the ups and downs, that how it works

Calorie burn for runners

When you workout you burn calories, depending on what workout you do can determine how many calories you burn for your effort –

 

Thought about running a 5K?  Most people will burn off between 300 and 400 calories during a 5K regardless if you run it in 4hrs or 15 mins.  The faster you go the sooner you get done!!!

 

here’s a formula to help determine how many calories you burn depending on your speed and weight or “energy expenditure”

Running at 5 mph burns .064 calories per minute per pound of body weight
Running at 6 mph burns .079 calories per minute per pound of body weight
Running at 10 mph burns .10 calories per minute per pound of body weight
Running at 12 mph burns .13 calories per minute per pound of body weight

add weight training to your workouts and you can burn even more!!  Need help with workout ideas let me know, its easy!!
