Back To School Means Back to Fitness

Hey, guess what’s been happening at the TriSystem Center over the summer.  The new Human Trainer and other workout tools have been added to make our workouts the most contemporary, fun and effective routines for progress.  We’ve also had some great interns this summer and Kathy Schlientz even got a new foot!  Yes, her new foot is totally different than the old one.  She can walk on this one.

We’ve seen clients successfully battle multiple sclerosis, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, drop-foot, spinal lesions, back surgery, open heart surgery, angioplasty, muscle damage all during this last summer.

It’s amazing what the right, specific combination of targeted nutrition and customized exercise can do for people that want to be better!

We’ve really developed a reputation for being the plateau busters,  the problem solvers and the solution finders with God’s help.  If traditional diet and exercise are not working for you, we have the answer!

This short video shows some of the exercises, clients and most of all, it talks about how my good friend Chuck Hicks  and his wife cheated the Grim Reaper with radical changes in their body over the last few months.  Check it out…

It’s a perfect time of year to get in here and get started or even restarted before things get even further from where you want them to be.  If not now, when?  Set up a free consultation in the form below.

Who am I going to give $1000 plus other gifts and prizes to next Friday?

Challenge participants need to read this post all the way to the end.  

Are you in it to win it?  The TriSystem EDGE challenge is winding to a close.  Its just amazing to see how fast 6 weeks goes by.  You’ve all been working so hard. I’ve seen incredible changes in so many people this time.  This challenge was different. It focused on the behavior and participation rather than the result.  In shifting the focus to the process rather than the outcome, participants have run the race better and are crossing the finish line faster, with greater results than ever before.  The other difference is that participants used EDGE for the first time, consistently over the  weeks.  This had an amazing effect on mood, mindset and attitude.  Thus participation was way better than expected.

Well, it’s not over yet.  You still have to get your final body composition test, your after pics and continue to do all the things that generate points up until Wednesday, May 22nd.  I need your personal logs for all your points turned in to be verified by that day.

Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Plateau Busting Class Starts this Monday!

Hey, I’m starting a 5 week course that is the solution to getting out of a rut in your life!  yes.  I’ve been called the “Plateau Buster” by many many people and I’ve learned that the strategies for overcoming sticking points have a a similarity whether they be physical, emotional or spiritual.  These strategies can be used to:

  • Loose weight
  • Gain energy
  • Increase performance
  • Overcome fears
  • Improve finances
  • Improve relationships
  • Improve job performance
  • Decrease stage fright
  • Improve mood and attitude
  • Break bad habits and create good ones
  • Become  more creative
  • Become a better witness
  • Become more optimistic
  • BECOME MORE AVAILABLE FOR GOD’S PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.

This 5-week course is a journey though common reasons why people get stuck and the biblically based solutions to bust through plateaus.  After close to three decades of research and experience, I’ve learned what the difference between a world record breaker and the rest of us is.  These athletic strategies can be applied to so many areas of our lives.  Come out and be entertained and learn personal development through exercise and nutrition strategies that have been proven to have a spiritual, physical and emotional effect on your life.

It’s a biblically based class at Foothills Christian Church.  For directions and a map of where room A2 is click here.

5 week Plateau Busting Classclass

Here is a sample of some of the course, setting the stage for developing optimism:

A pessimist is a person who is seasick during the entire voyage of life.

“Optimism is akin to faith; pessimism is akin to doubt. To which are you akin?

The story is told of a man who went into a restaurant with no money, figuring on paying for his meal with the pearl he hoped to find in the oyster he planned to order. That’s an optimist! Then there was the man who refused to get married because he was sure he could never find a girl who deserved to be as happy as he would make her. That’s a pessimist!
Somewhere in between is the Biblicist, the person who, without denying the harsh realities of his present situation, can still focus all the promises and provisions of God on living above his circumstances.
How can you truly comfort a friend or family member who is hurting emotionally, physically, or spiritually today? Plan carefully what you will say… and won’t say. Then pay that person a comforting visit.”  (Paraphrased from my Devotional Studies: The Daily Walk)

Use God’s botanical toolbox and eat foods and nutrients that promote good mood, metabolism and recovery. FIND YOUR EDGE!

 

Are you in the Challenge? Here is a way to grab 3 more points!

In the Challenge

So many of the Challenge participants are really busting through plateaus they didn’t expect.  The best part about this whole process is hearing how incredible people are doing.  This challenge is different.  It concentrates on the process and the step-by-step. day-to-day things we have to do to get the results.  Rather than say “I have to burn the fat.”  people are saying, “I have to eat right, log my food, workout and take my supplements.”  Doing those things drives the results and the points!

So here is another way to add to your points.  The interesting thing is that some people are doing well at gathering points in one area, while neglecting another.  If you haven’t been doing food logs or forget to take your edge. but are getting your workouts in and doing your body fat assessments, well here is a way to get some extra points.  Some of you won’t even do this, but some of you will.  The ones that will do it all are the ones that are in it to win it!

Did you Miss the Nutrition Seminar? Well Here it is….

Thank you all for coming back on the 12th to listen to me talk again on nutrition.  If you missed it, you can watch it or re-watch it below.  I got a lot of positive feedback from those who attended.  They say they were motivated by it.  The talk was called, “Eating for Pleasure and Benefit.”    Here is a flyer that was my second choice.  It is a good graphic of what is explained in  the presentation:

The Boston Marathon Bombing Near Miss!

In the midst of the TriSystem EDGE Challenge life brings us even more challenges in dealing with terrorism and senseless tragedy.  In the middle of danger and adversity, stories of  life and limbs lost at the Boston race remind us of how some things just don’t make sense.  In to my life enters an aspiring young runner, studying to be an NASN Primary Sports Nutritionist and personal trainer.  Pictured here is Melissa with her racing tag for this year’s Boston Marathon.

Melissa McGaughey“Officially excited” is what she captioned this picture.  There is so much training and preparation that  goes into a race like this that the expectation to do well and the celebration at the end adds to the excitement of traveling and finally getting there.  Melissa was no exception.  She prepared diligently and was hoping for her personal best.  Under 4 hours was satisfactory but under 3:45 was her hope. 

A race this size has several start times to accommodate the large number of participants and Melissa started 20 minutes later than her scheduled start time due to a back up.  Start times are ranked by previous race statistics with the fastest runners going first.  Melissa’s times put her not too far back in the pack but, she still started 20 minutes later than her scheduled start. 

When I learned that the bombs detonated around 4:15  to 4:20 into the race, it immediately made me worry about my student who had been pursuing her NASN Primary Sports Nutrition License.   Melissa had told me during her sessions about the race and we discussed the benefit of  using TriSystem EDGE to improve her performance.  With the news of the bombing,  I realized I had a young sports nutrition student with TriSystem EDGE right in the middle of it.  Trying to reach her made me fear the worst when her mobile phone went straight to voice mail as if it was not on or damaged.  There was no connection even when I tried the evening after the race.  

Tuesday morning, I got some news…

I saw there was some activity on her Facebook page and I got a text.  Here mobile phone had been made inoperable by law enforcement to prevent anyone from using their mobile phone to detonate another bomb.  From there, she went to the airport and just didn’t have a good mobile connection until Tuesday.  So what happened???

This Text says it all:

Melissa TextMelissa expected to cross the finish line at exactly the time the bombs went off and her family was waiting to see her there.  Instead, she did better than expected with a 3:41 time and got her medal and family away from the finish line,  just in time to be far enough away, but close enough to see the whole thing happen.  What an incredible story.  “Thank God for a 3:41” run time and I hope that TriSystem EDGE helped her get it.  She thinks it did.  She felt great during the run and that pace saved her life and the lives of her family.

This whole story put’s things in perspective.  The unknown is out there and evil rears it’s ugly head when we least expect it.  How can we be ready for things like this?  What kind of person would even consider doing something like bombing the Boston Marathon?  I can only answer the first question.  The answer is to do our best.  The answer is to maintain our resolve to do good.   Attitude, mindset and mood will govern whether we live life as a gift and hold it precious or live like life is a burden that can only be ripped from us.

Which way will you live? You need to decide.  I’ve chosen to live my life with optimism.  Find the positive in your situation.  It’s always there if you look for it.  That is why I’ve created TriSystem EDGEIt’s a natural botanical supplement designed to do just that…

FIND YOUR EDGE  and keep it.

EDGE helps with the physiology behind staying in a good mood, maintaining a healthy metabolism an recovering from stresses like the Boston Bombing.  Let’s take it even one step further.  We need to feed our minds and spirits as well with daily encouragement and tools to live an optimistic, productive life.  That’s why when something like this happensBoston Marathon Explosion, it’s good to have a support system to fall back on.

The first thing I do, most mornings, is devote my first minutes of the day to understanding my purpose and how I can be better.  Join me if you like.  At times it gets personal and, of course I share my beliefs and perspective.  Sometimes someone else’s perspective helps you confirm your own beliefs.  You can find my devotional summary here:Jeff's Facebook Page  https://www.facebook.com/jeff.kotterman. My personal Facebook page.  “Friend me” and it will show up on your Facebook timeline and hopefully motivate and encourage your friends as well.  We all could us some motivation these days, couldn’t we?  FIND YOUR EDGE and keep the Faith!
