Will your 2011 be a repeat of 2010?

Yessirree, it’s the New Year again.  How did you do with last years’ fat loss resolution?  Lost 80 pounds? Excellent!  Gained 10 pounds, with 8 of it from the holidays?  Not so excellent.  Why do people fail to realize their fat loss resolution? An honest 1% will tell you they were lazy and didn’t do a single workout, although they did buy a case of diet soda that sits in the pantry half empty,  9% didn’t know which diet to start and  90% will tell you they didn’t have the time to exercise.  Let’s address these issues quickly, because I know you don’t have time to waste!

1) You were lazy.  Take a picture of yourself in your underwear.  Post it on your refrigerator, on your bathroom mirror and on your steering wheel.  Don’t say, I know what I look like, JUST DO IT!  You knew what you looked like last year and see what happened? 

2) You don’t know where to start.  This is easy.  Pick a diet, actually read the book and follow it.  The library has several of these diet books.  Please stay away from high carb diets unless you are an endurance athlete.  No library card? Let me help you.  Put down that high calorie soda and toss those Cheez-its.  If you are over 20 pounds overweight, your food should be lean meat, vegetables and some mixed nuts eaten in 5 small portions throughout the day.  If it came in a box, don’t eat it. Do some weight training!  Why? The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn.  I can hear the ladies now “ I don’t want to get any bigger, I’ve seen pictures of  those muscled up she-men with breasts and I do not want to look like that!”  Don’t worry, it takes a lot more time, money and testosterone than you will ever produce to ever see that much muscle.  Never tried strength training?   Don’t fret. We will guide through with our proven High Intensity Interval program, just get started.

3) You don’t have the time to exercise.  I understand fully that we are now trying to cram 30 hours into each day.  Would you be more inclined to exercise if I let you in on a program that works?  At the risk of sounding like an infomercial, I have found that my HIIT program really works.  Want strength? Mobility & flexibility. Want core strength and functionality?   Want power, endurance and a fat-frying workout? Add some ballistic drills such as the skipping, bounding and running drills.  In my 13 years of being a personal  trainer, I have found no better program than mine for overall strength and conditioning. 
That’s all there is to it folks. Fat loss is in your near future if you act now.  Take that photo, put down that processed, lard-producing snack and join Nxt Level Performance.  Oh, and that 80 pound weight loss mentioned in the opening paragraph?  That was actually accomplished our very own Juan, with no drugs, no surgery and no expensive supplements.  As he put it,” I just diet and exercised”.  Any more excuses?   Join NLP  for the best in high intensity, constantly varied, interval training.
