This is a Rapid Fat-loss training program.

If that is what you are looking for then let me tell you what the keys to success are.

It’s really very simple and straight forward.

Simple should not be confused with easy.

Rapid fat-loss is a combination of 3 major elements.

By manipulating these 3 items we can quickly and efficiently turn your body into a fat-burning machine.

Do you know what those 3 elements are?

Your exercise, your nutrition and your mindset.

#1. Exercise!

Your exercise is the spark that primes the metabolic engine to create change.

If your exercise is ideal for you it will trigger the key fat-burning hormones.

Epinephrine, Nor-epinephrine, and Growth hormone.

All of these hormones help fat cells to be released from their storage state Adipose tissue.

Once they are released into the blood stream they can be used for energy and fuel by the body.

In order to trigger the release of these fat-burning hormones the workout must be brief but intense.

Intensity is always relative to the individual.

Obviously what is considered intense to you may not be what is considered intense for me.

In order to trigger the release of the fat-burning hormones the workout intensity must reach 70+% of your maximum effort.

If you are a total beginner then your maximum effort may be extremely low.

As a professional trainer with 25 years of experience now I can assess your personal abilities in our first 20 minute meeting.

Once I know your current level of fitness I can manipulate your sessions to make sure you stay in your fat-burning zone all the time.

If the training stimulus is appropriate for you then your metabolism is stoked.

When done correctly your metabolism will remain elevated for 24 to 48 hrs after your workout!

Sometimes this is refereed to as the “After-burn” effect.

More technically its termed EPOC and it stands for Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption.

If your training stimulus is appropriate for you it will trigger your body to release the key fat-burning hormones.

They will release the fat tissue from storage.  It will be used up for fuel by your body.

Your metabolism will be elevate for 1-2 days after your workout.  It can be measured in the lab by tracking your oxygen consumption.

This elevated fat-burning state triggered by exercise is commonly refereed to as the After-burn effect or EPOC.

If you training stimulus is low.  If you’re not pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone nothing will change.

The ideal training stimulus for you will also trigger the release of your neurotransmitters. These are the mood altering substances that are exchanged within your brain cells.

The right training stimulus will open your mind up to new ideas, enthusiasm and motivation.

Nothing changes if you don’t make a change in the intensity of your effort.

#2. Nutrition

Nutrition is the next key variable to successful Rapid Fat-loss!

Nutrition is what supports your exercise and creates the new you!

You literally are what you eat.

The material that you put into your mouth is the atoms and molecules that your body will use to build and repair your cellular tissue.

Your nutrition must be right for you…

It must be customized.

It must be appropriate for you sex, your age, your weight, your body-fat, your muscle mass and your personal energy expenditure.

I can calculate this information for you.

You can through scientific formulation determine your daily caloric need.

You can determine what you need and you can determine what you need to lose weight.

You can make sure that your caloric boundary contains everything that your body needs nutritionally to be at it’s best.

You can make sure that you are achieving your protein requirements.  You can make sure you are ingesting the ideal amount of carbohydrates for you.  You can ensure that your essential fat intake is appropriate.  You can meet your needs for water, vitamins, minerals, fiber and electrolytes.

In our first nutritional consultation we can determine a starting point for your nutrition.

By tracking your food for 21 days and working back and forth together each week we can create a customized nutrition plan for you that will teach you everything you will need to know nutritionally to maintain your weight for the rest of your life.

You will learn a system and method in this program that you can lean on and refer back to you even if you allow yourself to get off track again.

At some point in our lives each and every one of us that want to look and feel our best needs to do a deep dive into their personal nutritional requirements.

Are you one of those lucky people that are over 40 years of age and have been able to still eat whatever you want?

For most of us our metabolism begins to slow down as early as 30 or 35 years old.

As soon as that happens the fat stores start to increase.

With right exercise and right nutrition you can heal and correct any physical aliment in your body or life.

And it doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy your favorite foods while you do it.

A long-term lifestyle successful nutrition plan still needs to allow you to enjoy your favorite foods some of the time.

You just can’t enjoy them all of the time and expect to make rapid results.

The greater your commitments to your nutrition the faster your results will be.

#3. Mindset

Now I have listed mindset last but not because it is least.

It is listed last because with the first two variables you can change and heal any part of your life…

But to make the changes stick for a lifetime you need to change your mind.

Exercise and nutrition is what you need to make changes.

Mindset is what gets you started and keeps you going for the rest of your life.

Did you know that only 13% of the population exercises regularly?

Does that surprise you?

87% of us do not and cannot keep up their exercise independently.

Don’t be alarmed if you are in this 87%.

Most people cannot do this successfully and the reason is that most people have focused so much on other aspects of their life that they have not allowed any time left to take care of themselves.

Well the truth about this is that you are only as effective to or for others as you are to yourself.

If you are living in a way that does not make your best self a priority then you cannot be successful in the long run.

The truth is that no body has the time for anything less than their best self in this busy day and age.

Do you have time to be anything less than your best in any situation or circumstance in your life?

Nobody does…

What would be the benefit from interacting with your friend, your boss, your customer, your partner or your child when you are not in your best place?

How would not being at your best serve you?

Do you want to build a life of success?

Do you want your success to be in all elements of your life?

Once you learn how to create success in one area of your life you can take that formula and move it into another area of your life.

Success is no accident.

There are things that successful people do to remain successful.

You can do those things.

You can learn those things.

You can implement those things into your exercise and nutrition program.

You can implement those things into any aspect of your life.

Your success or your failure is your choice.

You have the power inside you to change anything you want to in your life.

All you need to do is ask yourself one question.

Are you ready to make a change?

Watch out for my 12 weeks to a brand new summer body program!

It will release next week.

It will contain everything you will need to make 2017 your best year ever!
