TriSystem Group Classes Starting This Month!

We all know that Personal Training Works, but Who Can Afford it?  The fastest way to get to your fitness goals is to have a highly trained, experienced, educated fitness professional find out what you want and take you there.  Real Fitness Planning also includes much more than workouts.  It includes nutrition planning and nutritive supplements.

What do Real Personal Fitness Professionals actually do?

  • Hold you accountable to your goals and compliance to your plan
  • Customize your program so that it fits you
  • Make you do things that you probably wouldn’t do on your own.

So what is the solution if you just can’t afford $100/ hr sessions for quality training? The answer is…

TriSystem Small Group Classes

Are you on Vacation? What about Mobile Food Component Choices?

Are you on Vacation? Not Cooking at home?

Your long weekend could really use some mobile protein.  This is where my friends, Egon and Eric of Nutrimart have several products, just for this purpose.  The hardest part of traveling is mobile protein. Yes, you should have protein in every meal when possible.  Don't skip a meal if there is simply no protein.  Here are some mobile meal components:
 
Mobile/Convenient Proteins:
 
NutriMart
Quest bars (1 bar is a serving)
Whey Protein (1/2 scoop is a serving)
Complete Cookies (1/2 is a serving)
Liquid Isopure (1/2 bottle is a serving)
 
Supermarket/convenience store
Greek Yogurt (4 oz)
Cottage Cheese (4 oz.)
Edemame (4 oz)

You Should be Able to See All Posts and Articles

I've solved the problem.  The membership plug in and the Facebook plug ins were not allowing people to see my posts and articles without membership.  All my posts are supposed to be free and accessible.  The only post that people can't see is the ingredients to the new supplement I'm working on.  Everything else should be viewable.  If it's not, please tell me!

Economists Say Inflation, Is that of Prices our Your Waistline?

So the economy is bad, that's just one more excuse to not exercise and go get some frozen yogurt or drink a few tonight.  While some businesses are suffering, others are thriving.  Comfort food and alcohol sales are up.  People are self medicating with the wrong medicine.  

Do you know what other business is thriving?

Auto maintenance and repair shops.  Yes, people are trying to extend the life of their cars rather than purchase new ones.  All of a sudden, changing the oil and getting a tune up became more important.  So what about your body?  You can't buy a knew one.  It's time for a "tune-up"

  • What's your target meals per day?
  • What's your target calories and nutrient balance per meal?
  • Oh yeah, and what's your body fat, or do you really want to know?

Inflation?

My prices are as low as they were in the 90's.  If prices are going up,  get more business by dropping the price.  Check out my new postcards (below).  I'm proud of them because I did them all by myself, designed and printed all on the same day.  That's a pretty cool service.  Come by and pick some up.

If you refer a friend and they get just one session, I'll give you one free.  Just tell me who you referred. and don't forget to get some of these cards.

What Bars and Shakes Should I Choose?

The Skinny on Shakes:

I've reviewed a lot of shakes and drink mixes.  My TriSystem Pre and Post workout shakes (members get my shake recipes on their menus.  Click here to become a member) are designed to not be refrigerated.  They are just a mix of powders that you can put in a shaker bottle and just add water when you're about to drink them.  Another option for the shakes are meal replacement packets by  Lee Labrada. They come in a box and you can also put them in a shaker bottle or water bottle.  Already made drinks that are liquid need to be refrigerated and are more expensive, generally  One that does not have to be refrigerated , but tastes best cold is the Isopure Zero Carb Liquid protein.  These are in glass bottles and work well with fruit and a few almonds.

 

The Deal With Bars:

Many bars have bad fats in them that could increase inflammation and actually store more fat.  Stock up on the Perfect Food Bars, they are made right here in San Diego.  Most Henry's stores have them. Check out the store locator on their website, http://www.perfectfoodsbar.com.  The Heart Thrive bars are also a "better bar"  the best place to get them is online at http://www.suncakes.com/Heart%20Thrive%20nutrition.htm.  They need to be refrigerated to last.  I order a lot and freeze some.  These are my first choice bars.   If you just can't find the time to get them, my second choices, for convenience are: 1.  A Clif Builder Bar or (3rd choice) just a Clif Bar or a Small MET-Rx Bar. These can be found in most grocery stores, even convenience stores and gas stations, but they are not as good as the Perfect Food Bars or the Heart Thrive for clean, non-GMO eating on the go.

Who can afford Personal Training anymore? The solution….

So I've written software programs

I've written apps

I've written books and courses

I've written infomercial programs and nationally recognized fitness plans

The one thing that works is direct interaction with a professional like me.  But that is limiting myself to the wealthy.  Everyone should have the luxury because, it is a necessity now.  Being fit is the one proven way to minimize our dependency on a failing healthcare system. So here is a way to get personally trained by me, using a program I created, that only costs dollars per session, not hundreds!

Avoid All Sugar!?

Watch this Compelling Newscast from 60-Minutes.

http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7403942n&tag=api&fb_ref=belowVideo&fb_source=home_multiline

There has been more and more research showing how excess sugar consumption has contributed to several health dilemmas in the United States.  I am well acquainted with the research, last year I worked with MET-Rx on their latest project, MET-Rx 180, I wrote in their nutrition guide about how the history of sports nutrition shifted in the 1980's to a low fat diet that gave way to a high carbohydrate and thus, more sugar content in processed foods

What is my opinion on all this anti-sugar sediment?

Sugar can be strategically placed in and athlete's diet to enhance performance and recovery.  Naturally occurring sugar in fruits, veggies and starches do not negate the value of those foods.  Eating them excessively or in a highly processed or condensed state will have a negative effect if done regularly.  So sugar during, and around exercise, is here to stay for athletes.  In meals away from exercise and competition, Jack LaLane said it best,"If man made it, don't eat it."
