Fitness Doesn’t Work for Me!

Hey TriSystem friends:

I have some important news.  I haven’t posted in a long time, and after weeks of  reflection and contemplation, It’s time to make some changes.   After over 25 years of studying, research, thousands of client assessments, programs developed and literally hundreds of thousands of body fats measured, I’ve come to a conclusion:

Fitness just doesn’t work for some people!  Why?

I’ve seen diligent clients do more than  other clients around them.  They seem to be eating right and working out regularly and just be discouraged by their lack of results.  They force themselves to eat strict and rarely miss a workout while others eat haphazardly and miss exercise sessions with better results.  It just doesn’t seem fair!

I hate Exercise

  • “Why is this so hard for me?”

  • “I only eat healthy, nothing that really tastes good and I’m not losing like the cookie eater over there, WHY??”

  • “I hate exercise, but, I do it anyway because I have to.”

  • “The gym is full of self centered mirror-lovers. I hate the mirror.”

Regardless of diligence and discipline, regardless of how technologically advanced your workout routine or how clean and pure your eating is, there is one factor that influences success in fitness more than any other.  I’ve discovered and proven it in my years of experience and it’s time to share my discovery…

Mood

Simply stated it is MOOD.

Don’t discount this.

Let me explain.  There is specific physiology and psychology that govern regenerative processes in the body that directly correlates to feeling energetic, optimistic and finally happy.  This means that you can’t just like the idea of fitness, you have to embrace the process to the point of enjoying what it takes to be healthy and fit and finally, you have to accurately think of yourself as a fit person.

So if you are forcing yourself to get fit or think what you want is just unachievable or deep down,  you think fitness is  fleeting or temporary, then you’ll never achieve your goal of getting there, regardless of what type of exercise or nutrition plan you are following.

How many of us have been in better shape than they are now?  Most of us! Why is that? 

It is because of our mindset right now.  It is because of our mood and attitude.  I have observed very similar clients with similar goals get very different results because they approached fitness and life with a different mindset.  This has been shown time and time again in research.  Those who had the right psychology had a definitive advantage in beating a life threatening disease, surviving a disaster or even surviving combat.

So ho can we get this “right psychology” and thus develop our mood and mind-set and develop the right attitude?

I can confidently say I’m in better shape at 45 than I was at 20, 30 or 40.  I can confidently say I’m in better shape than when I was an active duty Marine Officer, 20 years after the fact.  Shouldn’t the aging process count against me?  Shouldn’t the economy, loss of family and friends to cancer and an uncertain future drive me down?

It is expected that it should by many today, but it should not.  Armed with these specific methods and nutrients  that constantly refresh my mood, my metabolism, my recovery from daily stresses and ultimately change my attitude and mindset for a successful and fit life, I’ve busted through several fitness plateaus, injuries and other invisible roadblocks to my success.

It is time for you to bust through your roadblocks as well.  It is time to be better and get an EDGE on life.

Meet me on April 5th, my birthday, to start your plateau busting springtime transformation.  I promise, this will be different than anything you’ve done before.  I’m not asking you to abandon your favorite gym or your current fitness program.  I’m asking you to get the most out of them.  I’m asking you to take this journey with me through a six week program that will make you better and keep making you better.  Be your own experiment and prove  that this works.  It did for me.  Will you join me?

The 7 Weeks to a Swimsuit Summer Countdown, 6 More Weeks!

Are you already seeing changes?  I am! And the members that have been by the TriSystem Center have.  In just 1 week of making these simple food and exercise changes, it is pretty amazing how the body responds.  By now, you've completed your assessment and found your way around the software.   Log in to see what's in store for you today.  Your home screen says what's next.

The left side is your daily menus and the right side is your workouts.  You can easily print out menus, grocery lists and workouts for each day from the buttons at the bottom of the home screen.  Most members already know this but, did you see the other menu options on the right side?

The Metabolic profile tab tells you what you need to know if you don't have the planned meal to eat in front of you.  It explains the parameters that you need to follow to keep getting results.

Do you know how many calories you burn in a day?

Do you know the range of calories you need to eat per meal?

How about the distribution of proteins, carbs and fats?

How should your next meal look if it is at a restaurant or a friends house?

The Metabolic Profile Tab  answers these questions so you can stay on the plan ANYWHERE!

Here is an example of a Platinum Club Members's Metabolic Profile:

Analysis of your assessment answers indicates you burn 2065 calories/day. We have classified you as a 'regular' eater type. Your RMR has been calculated to be 1461 calories. Your SAF is calculated to be 415 calories.

To achieve your goals we have set your program to the following values:

Daily Minimum Calories   1461.00 calories.
Daily Maximum Calories       2065.00 calories
Metabolism Type       normal
Meals Per Day       5
Meal Protein%       30.00

This member has a big range of calories.  Her program will have low calorie days as low as 1600 calories and high days as high as 2000.  Her calories are equally distributed throughout the day with each meal portion being around:

  • 1/3 lean meat, low fat dairy and egg whites, fish and fowl
