Roswell Bootcamp Style

Roswell Bootcamp Style

Reach your fitness and wellness goals in a fun, and safe environment.

If you are a resident in and around the Roswell area and you are someone who has always been interested in doing a Roswell bootcamp you should read this. If you haven’t taken that first step yet, it’s so important for you to understand what the true benefits of bootcamp are, and what bootcamp isn’t or shouldn’t be.

Gone are the days when you would meet at a park at 4:30 am, rain or dark. At 4;30am, there is no such thing as sun shine. When bootcamps became popular, you would have someone dressed in camouflage gear, yelling at you overused and inapplicable cliches such as “No pain no gain”. Although we all can appreciate the idea of digging down deep inside to do something out of your comfort zone it’s just not made for long term success. There is a certain grit to the idea of toughing it out, but these days, it’s just not necessary. Boot camp has come a long way, in the past couple of decades.

Let there be light!

Now instead of doing those workouts at dark thirty in the dark, you can now do those same workouts in the light. When you do bootcamps inside, there is climate control, music playing, and a bathroom that everyone can appreciate.

The benefits of a Roswell bootcamp style classes includes:

The challenge – No need for no pain no gain, but challenges can bring about transformations if issued the right way.

Camaraderie – It is always great when you can make new friends on your journeys.

The enhancement of spirit, mind and body – When you get into that zone when all it is about is overcoming the obstacle that is in front of you, resilience takes over. You begin to tap into things that you didn’t know that you had. You find yourself getting stronger, and defeating challenges that would of defeated you in the past.

Affordable Personal Training – Our Roswell Bootcamp can be the best bang for your buck. For some people, budget plays a real life role in whether they will start a workout program. While Personal training can start from $50, $60 , $70 even well pass the $100 per session mark, for most Roswell bootcamps, on a session per session basis the cost is a fraction of that price, which is something that most working professionals can afford.

Be careful and weary of the following kinds of bootcamps:

Bootcamps that don’t coach you up – Whenever you are in any class situation, it is imperative that you are able to have feedback, so that you can learn, grow and transform.

Exercise until you drop type of workouts – bootcamps and exercise classes should build up not tear down. Be weary of the no pain no gain philosophy. Exercise, fitness and weight loss should challenge you, not break you.

Bootcamps with no plans or no directions – If you ask an instructor what is the focus for the day, and they are not able to tell you, run for the hills. You should go in the other direction. If you don’t have a plan you can’t make any progress.

If you are in the North Atlanta, North Fulton area,and need a great workout that will help you transform, the Roswell Bootcamp with Fit2DMax Roswell is the direction that you want to go.

small group training

Small Group Training can ignite weight loss

Small Group Training will give you the endurance to see your weight loss to the end.

 

We go further together together

In Small Group Training, the group can bring the individual along for the ride.

Many times, the goals that you have for your life  just may not happen overnight.  Some of your most important goals may take weeks, months and dare I say years before those goals reach fruition.   The reason why a majority of people don’t reach their goals is because they quit a week before, they can gain momentum.  They don’t hit their goal because they throw in the towel a month before the goal is reached.  They run away from the goal because they run out of endurance to do a little more  lifting that it takes to win it all.  It’s the truth.

If you knew how much it would take to reach your goal, would you find a way to stick it out?  

Anyone who achieves something great never does it alone.  A great example of this are NASCAR drivers.  They may drive alone, but they don’t race alone.  They make pit stops, and the pit crew helps them to make the necessary adjustments in the car so that they can get back on the road and run fast again.   Cyclist use groups so that they can go faster together.   When cyclist are in a group, they can cut through the wind better and pace each other so that everyone is able to feed off of each other’s energy.  Runners will draft behind one another to distribute the running load so that they can have a stronger finish.    See, when you are in a group, it makes it easier for you to endure through the process of reaching that significant goal in your life.  When you are in a group, it becomes easier to establish a culture of excellence within that micro community.

 

The benefit of a small  group training program can help you complete your goal.  

Why so we skip small group training and insist on doing things on our own?

  1. Lack of trust – In life, sometimes we skip the group thing because we think that the group will hurt us, steal your our work,  ideas, and take credit for our thoughts.
  2. Unhealthy competition –  Think that if you share within the group that everyone will get a head of you.  Learning more ways to be secure in yourself, where you are at right now and where you are going will help to deal with this issue.  At the end of the day, it’s all about being better.  If it takes a group to help you grow, then don’t dismiss those opportunities to get better.
  3. Buying into the myth and romanticism of being a self made man or woman.  If you buy into the ideology of doing it on your own without any help, then my friend, you must love taking the long way home.  Never be confused about how I feel about this:  Your wins are your wins.  Your losses are your losses.  You own them.  It’s great to share your wins with the people that helped you to get there, It’s easier to endure a loss when there are people there to pick you up, encourage you and push you along as you make your comeback.

 

Endurance isn’t always about being able to last the longest.  Really it’s all about holding on after others have let go.  One of the definitions of endurance is the capacity of something to last or to withstand wear and tear.  Groups will always have more staying power than individuals because when one is weak, the others can bring that person along.  Small group training can be the solution that you need to cross that proverbial finish line.

4 Benefits of Personal Training

benefits of personal trainingHow many times have you started an exercise program, only to give up after a few short weeks?  Or perhaps you spend countless hours in the gym but become increasingly frustrated by not achieving any physical results?  Even the most avid fitness enthusiast struggles with the repetition that sometimes comes with daily workouts.  For those who truly need a bit of expert advice and motivation, consider the many benefits of personal training.

Motivation

Many of us begin a new fitness program with a great of energy and enthusiasm, but keeping this momentum going over the long term can be rather difficult.  Personal trainers are experts at holding us accountable.  They greet us with a smile on their face and a detailed workout routine already in mind.  All we have to do is show up and follow orders.  Even at those times when we feel that we just can’t exercise any harder, personal trainers have the unique ability to believe in us more than we believe in ourselves.

Nutrition Counseling

One of the special benefits of personal training is the additional coaching that we receive in nutrition counseling.  If you are one of those people who workout in the gym for weeks at a time without seeing any significant body changes, then the problem may likely be in your diet plan.  Do you want rock-hard abs?  80% of all 6-pack abs are built in the kitchen rather than the gym.  Personal trainers will take the time to learn your specific fitness goals before designing the perfect fitness program and dietary menu that will get you the results you want in the shortest amount of time.

Injury Prevention

Many people avoid joining a fitness club out of fear that they may hurt themselves.  If you haven’t been to a gym in a couple of decades, the new machinery and technology can sometimes seem rather intimidating.  Personal Trainers will teach you the proper ways to use the equipment and the proper techniques that will prevent injuries.  In cases where their clients are currently suffering from a previous physical injury, they can also design alternative workout programs that will keep you active and promote faster healing.

Maximize Results

One of the best benefits of personal training is that you can workout less and lose more fat.  Professional trainers create highly efficient exercise routines that get you in and out of the gym quickly while burning the maximum amount of calories.  They also are experts in providing immediate feedback on proper form and technique.  By performing the exercises with the right posture and body positioning, you get faster and better results.

Personalized Benefits of Personal Training

One of the primary goals of all personal trainers is to create an exercise program that appeals to the individual client.  They are experts at designing customized exercise routines that will meet your specific fitness goals and objectives.  They pay attention to which types of exercises that you find fun and which ones that you simply dread.  Do you suffer from lower back pain?  Do you want to build bigger biceps?  Or maybe you simply want to shed a few extra pounds before heading to the Bahamas over the winter?  Personal trainers can help.  For more information on the many benefits of personal training, contact Fit2DMax today!

Why did the Personal Trainer hire a Personal Trainer?

Roswell, GA Personal Training

Why did the Personal Trainer hire a Personal Trainer?

As professional Personal trainer, business owner, and husband to be at the time, I found myself needing an extra push.  It always seems as if there are not enough hours in the day.  I pride myself on being a very disciplined person when it comes to living a healthy and active lifestyle.  I feel like I have to be that way.  My goal is to always find a way to inspire my clients, whether its through words that I use to encourage them, the actions that I take, or the way that I take care of my own body.  At the end of the day my body is the representation of the lifestyle that I lead and a reflection of my body of work.  Can having your body on display to the public be a lot of pressure to maintain an in shape physique?  Absolutely!  I can’t speak for other trainers, but I think this type of pressure is self induced on my end.

The Real reason why I hired a Personal trainer

Although most people would agree that being in shape comes with the territory in my profession, the real reason why I decided to hire a Personal Trainer was because being in very good shape wasn’t good enough.  I wanted to be in perfect shape… or as close to perfect as can be.   There was something or someone that I wanted to be “perfect” for, so my motivation was pretty high.  Like most people, time is a factor for me because of all of my responsibilities.   And although I am extremely committed to varying the workouts of the clients that I work with, I found that I needed to hit the refresh button for my own  workouts.

Recalling on lessons learned from childhood

As a child, I gravitated towards athletics because like most children, I enjoyed playing.  Whether it was freeze tag, shooting marbles, playing skelly (NY people know what I’m talking about) or football, it didn’t matter what it was, I wanted to play the game!  Sometimes you win, and sometimes you lose, but you play to win the game.   So it wasn’t until very long until I jumped into organized sports.  I played basketball, football and track.  In playing all of those sports, I had  a lot of coaches who poured what they knew into me.  The biggest things that I learned from my coaches as a youth were to remain focused despite your external circumstances, to push towards your goals no matter what your internal feelings are, and that I was capable of doing more than I could ever imagine.  Those are three things that we all can use to progress further in our daily lives, no matter the goal.   The great coaches I had were Coach Mike James,  Coach Speedy, Coach Tony, Coach Moore, and Coach Riley.  Those guys motivated me to do things that I never knew to be possible in my finite thinking.   During those childhood days when I didn’t know what a Personal Trainer or a Motivator was, they were my trainers.  They were training Spirit, Body and Mind.

Leave my pride at the door

Okay, so I have to admit, when I was deliberating on whether or not I would hire a trainer my pride and ego was a big roadblock for me.  I figured, hey I’ve been on TV , radio, I’ve written books  and I’ve trained thousands of people to lead healthy and active lifestyles why should I hire a trainer?  I was really concerned about how people would view me.  I didn’t want the the perception of how people viewed me to change.  I thought to myself, “If people caught wind that I was being trained by another trainer, than I would lose the respect of my clients.”  It’s crazy how our inner dialogue can be self defeating sometimes.  At that point, I had to go back to one of the lessons that I learned as a child – Push towards your goals no matter what your internal feelings are.   At that point it became clear that I didn’t need to push for yards:  I needed to scrap for inches.  That I wasn’t starting from scratch, but that I needed an extra 1% effort to get me to where I needed to go.   There is much to be said about being able to push yourself towards your goals.  I truly believe that it also helps to have someone that can be a motivation to you outside of yourself.    I knew where I wanted to go.  My pride was too heavy, so I dropped it down.   So what were my goals and where was I going?

The perfect love

The driving force or what I like to call my big “Why” for why I hired a trainer was because of my wife Danay.  I didn’t want to be great.  I wanted to be perfect.  I wanted to give my wife my best me.   Through the Fit2DMax Bridal Fitness program I run into mainly brides who want to fit their wedding dresses just right.  Even when Danay and I trained together, we worked out so  that she could feel good about in fitting that dress for our wedding.  My mother in law also jumped in on the fun and worked out with us as well, and we were determined to make our wedding a timeless event that we would have fond memories of.    Very similar to women who want their dress to fit right, men want to have that suit that fits them perfectly.  We want the broad shoulders, the V shaped back, the strong arms and the tapered waist to show through the suit.   I wanted to be my wife’s Knight in shining armor.  In this case, the armor was a charcoal wedding tuxedo.   When that vision of what I wanted to be for my wife became clear, a biblical scripture came up in my mind.

 

1 Corinthians 13:4  Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

At that point, there was nothing left to do but to make the call.  My pride could no longer stand in the way.

They call him Coach

So I decided to call one of the best trainers that I know.  My brother from another mother Coach Leander Murphy.  Coach Murph is a Sports Performance coach in the Alpharetta area.   Shout out to Coach Murphy by the way.  I reached out to him because he is highly reputable.  We’ve both worked with high level athletes as well as people who are beginning their wellness journey, and we share a lot of the same fitness  philosophies.  Coach Murphy lives a lifestyle of wellness, and is as strong as an Ox. When you hire a trainer, it’s very important that you choose someone who you respect.  I respect him tremendously and he is truly one of my best friends.   I mentioned the best friend thing because I don’t just trust anyone with my body because it’s my livelihood and my life.  At the end of the day, I knew that I could trust him to get the most out of my body without hurting it.

So just like that, I’m whipping through Atlanta on I-75 via College Park all the way up to Alpharetta to train with my buddy Coach Murph.  We were doing things that I haven’t done in a while, things that I love, but got away from like box jumps, tire flips, dynamic drills, sprints with weighted sleds and Olympic lifts.   Training with Coach Murphy was a valuable experience for these reasons.

1.  It increased the level of empathy that I had for my clients.  Trying to make a training session when you have appointments all over the place can be tough.  It allowed me to be more encouraging if clients came late to sessions due to their busy work load.  Flipping the script and becoming the client has done wonders for how I interact with them and how I train the Fit2DMax team on how to offer a better service to our clients.

2. Although I push myself harder than most, it was key to have Coach Murph pushing me when I reached moments of weakness and thought that I couldn’t push anymore.  Like all great trainers do, Coach Murph had a bigger vision of me, than I had of me.  If I was pushing up to 95% then Coach Murph TYGTAL’ed me which is an acronym for Take Your Game To Another Level.  That extra 5% is something that can often make you or break you.  We all need to be at 100%.  How you get there is all up to you.

3.  Great trainers create an environment that generates success.  Driving up to those sessions, so many times I was thinking about all the fires I had to put out and all of the problems I had to solve.  When I walked through those doors, it was time to work and as the old spiritual says, “Lay my burdens down”.  My goal was again, to be the best that I can be for Danay.  It is all about your environment at the end of the day.   You should always create or inject yourself into a successful environment and a winning culture. Someone once told me that if you want to be a thoroughbred that you have to surround yourself around thoroughbreds.

After all, the jumping, the sprinting, the lifting and sweating, and what were the results? Our Wedding in Roswell, GA!   See below:

The reason why I wrote this post was because I wanted to be transparent with you and share a little bit about my life.   The moral of the story is that everyone can use a little push sometimes.  I want to thank Coach Murphy for being to push that I needed.  If you are looking for a Sports Performance Coach you can find Coach Murph at coachmurphy@gmail.com.  If you are looking for a weight loss specialist or someone to get you into the best shape of your life, the Team at Fit2DMax Roswell will always be here to help you with your fitness and wellness needs.

Exotic Smoothies - Roswell GA Personal Training

Are Smoothies Making Me Fat?

Are Smoothies Making Me Fat?

Are smoothies really good for you?

ExoticSmoothies-850x567

Are smoothies actually good for us?  Will smoothies help me with my weight loss goals?  It really depends on how you use smoothies.  I remember one particular instance a few years back when one of my clients was upset about her weigh in.  One of the major catalyst for weight loss is your nutrition and what an individual eats.  I make it a point to provide guidance to my clients and steer them towards foods that they can eat and enjoy while losing weight at the same time.  I knew that this particular client was active, so the first question I asked was, “How is your nutrition coming along?”  She said that her eating habits have improved.  One of the biggest changes that she made was adding more smoothie drinks to her daily food habits.

 

At the time, it sounded good to me.  On the surface, it seemed like everything was going well.  I then asked, “What are you adding in your smoothies?”  She ran down a list which included rice milk, strawberries, orange juice, apples, yogurt and bananas.  When you look at the list, initially it sounds like she is doing the right thing.  By most standards, those are all healthy foods.  When we were able to look at the list again, I realized why she gained weight rather than lost weight.  If you look at the list of foods that were in her smoothie, they were all glucose based.  In other words, they were all carbohydrates.  Her daily dose of high amounts of sugar is what led to the weight gain.

 

The question that I asked in the beginning of this post was, Are Smoothies making me fat?  The answer is yes they can if you don’t place the right amount of ingredients in them.  Carbohydrates are primary sources of energy. Carbs are a good thing.  The challenge for a person who is on a weight loss journey is that an excess amount of carbs will be converted to fat if the carbs are not being utilized through exercise.  Storing fat is the last thing that a person wants to do if they are losing weight.   Now I am not saying that blending smoothies, juicing fruits and making protein shakes are bad.  I’m actually a big smoothie fan, as I use them for my personal health. Smoothies are a great way to boost your health. We just have to use them the right way by adding good things in them.  Here are some pro’s and con’s for smoothies.

 

Smoothie benefits

-excellent way to get your nutrients in

-convenient

-people who are resistant to having breakfast can use a smoothie as a meal replacement

-cooking can extract key nutrients from the food while drinking it will ensure that you are able to get them all in.

 

The drawback to sugar loaded smoothies

-elevates insulin levels (sugar)

-because you are drinking the calories, it makes it easier to pack in more calories at a time

-most smoothies have too much sugar because people would rather blend fruits as opposed to vegetables

 

Here are some quick tips to make a better smoothie.

 

  1. If your smoothie has more than eight ingredients in it, you’re probably doing too much.
  2. The idea of more is better is simply not true.   Keep your smoothie simple
  3. Use one fruit like an apple to mask the taste of a vegetable that you may not like to eat on a normal basis.
  4. Since most of us don’t eat a lot of vegetables, it is important to add green vegetables into our smoothies whenever you can.

 

Get the biggest bang out of your smoothie by adding these:

  • Blueberries are one of the best fruits to use for your smoothie because it is so high in antioxidants
  • Chia seeds are a good source of several B Vitamins which can help in energy production.
  • Flax seed are rich in Omega-3’s and can help reduce inflammation
  • Nuts are packed with protein and have unsaturated fats which are the healthy kind of fat that aids in the functionality of the heart.

 

Here’s one of my favorite smoothie recipes

 

Purple Power Protein Punch

blueberrysmoothiestock

1 generous handful of spinach

1 cup of frozen blueberries

1 scoop of your favorite chocolate protein powder

1 cup of Almond milk or 1 Cup of water if you want to reduce calories

 

When it comes to healthy eating and healthy living, smoothies can be your great benefit or an additional obstacle.  Make sure that you put the right things in the mix and you will be on your way to the good and healthy life.  I shared my personal smoothie recipe, so if you have some smoothie recipes that are working for you, please share so that we can encourage folks to live healthy and active lifestyles.

The Best Fitness Advice that I ever received…

The Best Fitness Advice that I ever received was,  “Keep on going and don’t stop”.

I know you are thinking, “Is that it?!!”, but I stand by that advice!  Here’s why.  I started running track when I was a child.  I was a novice and didn’t know that much about running form, or the right shoes to wear or even the right way to stretch.  I had tons of questions for Coach Moore (My middle school track coach).  My first couple of questions were general ones.  I asked Coach Moore, “What should I do when I get out there?  Do you have any advice for me?”  The answer that he gave me was a simple one.  He said, “Keep on going and don’t stop.”

Ivory befor and after - Roswell GA Personal Training

 

 

So here it is, my first Cross Country race.  I’m the new guy on the team and it’s my time to show what I can do.  In my first run I started out slow.  Everyone else gets out ahead of me.  As I continue to run I noticed that my teammates stopped to take breaks.  I continued to run.  The voice that echoed in my head as I passed each runner was that of Coach Moore saying, “Don’t stop”.  I didn’t stop.  I kept on running.  Listening to Coach Moore took me a really long way because on my first run with the team, I moved up to second place on my first day.  Not bad for a newbee.

 

In life, too often, we overlook the simple advice that people share with us.  We  look for the advice to come to us on a magic carpet, or we are looking for revelations to come in a platinum package.  In actuality the deep and profound answers to life’s obstacles can be extracted from “Simple advice”.   When that simple advice is shared with you, it may not always be easy, but keep your focus on that simple thing.   Master that one thing and unlock the key to worth while achievements.

 

When you are pursuing weight loss, you have to “keep on going and don’t stop”.   Most people quit on their weight loss right before a major breakthrough comes.  If they stayed with that workout program for one more day, or if they would continued on with their new and improved grocery list, they would seen the fruits of their labor.  One more push often times is what it takes to see success in fitness and in life.

 

So, what kind of simple advice do you need to follow today to reach your maximum potential?  Which words of wisdom have you over looked?  What is the best advice that you ever had but you haven’t followed it yet?  Think about the best advice that you ever had and let it ring in your mind like a top 40 hit.  Please share your comments and thoughts about the best advice that you ever received in the comment section of this blog and inspire someone today!
