2 weeks down, what's new?

So....we're 2 weeks down in January. How is you're training going?

Have you lost fat yet? Or are you still clearing out the tins of Roses via you're mouth?

I'm guessing you've been working yourself into the ground, training 3 to 5 times per week for over an hour at a time and either not eating a thing in desperado mode to get it off or you're still in Christmas mode and eating too much.

Chances are that the latter has been happening and it could be why nothing has changed except the date on the calender.

Goal Setting:

You see, before you start any kind of fitness program you need to set yourself a goal. Saying you want to lose weight isnt going to change anything. Now, if you had put on a stone over Christmas but want to get that off and you have made you're target 14lbs to lose then make sure you write it down.

Writing it down makes it specific, it makes it real.

For example:

By February 10th i will lose 14lbs. I will do this by exercising 6days a week, 3 days resistance training and 3 days interval training for a approx 30 minutes per day. I will eliminate alcohol, wheat, caffeine, and processed foods for 28 days and i will keep a food journal of what i eat, when i eat, everyday until my goal is complete.

Do you see how specific this goal is compared to saying "i want to lose weight"?

Go ahead and do it, let a few friends know of you're goals so they can encourage you to stick to it until you're goal is complete.

Now for the training:

Here's a few reasons why you've not lost any fat:

(1) First off, if you aren't doing a program designed by a professional then i'm afraid you're wasting a lot of time. You can't wing you're training. If you want to win a court case you have a lawyer, if you want to win a fat loss battle then hire a professional, they know how to guide you there, it's likely you don't.

(2) Cardio:

You go into a gym, look around, see those big Cross Trainers and think....."oh they don't hurt, i'll go on that".
You participate in about 40 minutes on it as you watch the tv. By the end of you're 40 minutes you've got a little sweaty, looked at the calorie count and noticed you burned 340 calories. Repeat day 2, day 3 and so on....

This is kind of cardio falls into the category we call aerobic training. When you train aerobically it will burn off about zero % fat from you're body. In other're wasting you're time!

What you need to do is interval training. This in itself is proven to burn up to 9 times MORE FAT than aerobic training.

(3) Resistance Training:

Despite what you may think you know, resistance training should be number 1 priority for fat loss. Adding activities that promote or maintain muscle mass will make that muscle mass work harder and elevate the metabolic rate. When the metabolic rate is elavated, the more calories get burned, and that can last for up to 36 hours after a workout.

(4) Nutrition

You can't out train a bad diet. It really can't get any simpler then that.
  • Increase protein.
  • Eat more vegetables.
  • Eat more meals but smaller servings.
  • Cut our starchy carbohydrates.
  • Drink water regulary.

If you that which is extremely basic you will find that you're results will change.

So to recap:

Set a specific goal.

Use resistance training.

Swap aerobic training for interval training.

Eat cleaner, but more often.

Now go and make 2009 a year where you make a good change to you're body.

Today is the day!

One day a person wakes up and decides, "Today is the day."

You decide they're going to lose the weight once and for all.

This time there will be NO stopping you whatsoever.

So you go overboard right from the start.

You throw out all the junk food. You start working out an hour each day. For some reason you decide to completely starve yourself.

After a week or two or three you decide you have had enough, and it all comes apart - again.

What went wrong?

How did this happen - AGAIN?

Well, I can tell you from experience it's the complete and utter lack of a plan.

Fail to plan, plan to fail.

So wouldn't it be nice to have a blueprint to follow?

A game plan to help you every step of the way?

Wouldn't it make sense to have that plan in place before you make those New Years resolution mistakes again like last January?

Boro Boot Camp has everything you need. That is the complete plan of attack.

Today we've got a guest blog from a friend of mine over the pond.

His name is Brad Taliancich, he owns Team Xcelerate and has been running boot camps for several years now.

Here's somebody else's view about boot camps and how Boro Boot Camp can help you.

1.) What makes a boot camp program better than gym workouts or gym programs?
"You get to enjoy being outdoors, fresh air and a change of surroundings. You also get to focus on your routine and not a TV (mind-body experience)."

2.) What are the benefits your clients have received from participating in your boot camps?

"We've just recently started adult programs (November) as we have been doing youth programs for several years. The participants are seeing results, talking about the workouts giving them the needed boost of energy to survive the last half of the day and the fact that they are in a group of people that support each other."

3.) Did you find that their fitness results were better from your boot camp than at any point they had experienced on their own in a gym environment?

"Many of them have been in a gym or even currently in a gym. They all like the fact that the workouts are varied every time they come and they understand the functionality of the program. Not being stuck on a machine and working up a better sweat than staying on a treadmill or bike has made a big difference to them."

4.) What difference do you think training with like minded people who have similar goals to each other has on your participants Brad?

"It really helps their confidence and as the workouts progress they really help each other get through the routines. I have some who are class clowns and some who spout out encouragement but they completely help each other get through in a fun, positive way."

5.) What kind of training do your clients do?

"FitFunCamp emphasizes Tabatas and we mix up the intervals from time to time. Our group can be doing squats, push-ups, jumping jacks and pillar holds one day and then running through ladders, jumping over hurdles and crawling on the ground on another day. Our goal is to not have a "typical" day."

Great information Brad. Have you anything else you'd like to add?

"You do not always realize you are in a rut when training in a gym. Boot camps and fitness camps can really provide a way to have a completely different workout every time they come to class. There is no monotony."

2 BIG Fat Loss Killers.

I'm sure there are many reasons why a lot of people are having trouble with weight loss and keeping it off.

So here are 2 BIG reasons why people are failing.

1.) Lack of social support

What are the chances that you are the only person at home who wants to eat right and workout regularly?

Pretty high right?

No doubt your in a minority at work too where you want to get a quick workout in before or after work?

If this is the case then your not going to have anybody there to make sure your eating right and not allowing yourself to cheat in weak moments, which happen often.

2.) Your Program isn't structured by a Professional.

If you go to court, you get a solicitor. If you damage ankle ligaments chances are you go to a Physio.

So why, when you go to workout do people not have a fitness program designed by a Fitness Professional?

Despite all the fancy gym equipment, the extra gyms, the more people training etc, it really doesn't surprise me why people in general are not getting any results because they are going by a made up program.

No wonder you guys get frustrated and give up after 4 weeks. Do the right thing and hire a Professional to design your program, it works!

At Boro Boot Camp you get social support with up to 16 other like minded people all striving for the same fat loss results as you are trying to achieve and the program is specifically designed to burn lbs of fat away from your body.

Don't make the same mistake as last year and be cuing up for a cardio machine that won't help you, sign up for Boro Boot Camp whilst places are available and say goodbye to those saggy bits you are tired of seeing everyday.
