Boot Camps and Cardio Won't Get You the Results You Want in 2018

2018 is only a few holiday meals and parties away so it's time to start thinking about a game plan for making 2018 your best year yet.

If you're serious about transforming your body, health, and lifestyle NOW is always the best time to start.

Holidays are special but they shouldn't impact whether or not you workout.  I'll humor your for a bit though. Let's say you really will set a New Year's Resolution to make 2018 your best year yet. And you'll actually follow through with it.   The big question is: What plan will you follow? If you're like the dozens of women I work with, you've tried a different diet every year for the last decade. You're slowly creeping up in weight despite all your dieting efforts. You've tried walking, cardio machines, and every aerobics class under the sun. You've seen no progress or even weight gain. At best you've noticed you're getting smaller but you're still "flabby." This sounds hateful of me to say, but I'm just telling you what I hear over and over again from frustrated women.  Fortunately, Steel Strength Training is the solution.  Strength Training is the number one thing missing from women's exercise routines.

Strength training is the most effective form of exercise for burning fat and it's the only exercise that will truly give you that toned, defined look you're after. If you want slower fat loss and no muscle definition then keep doing boot camps and cardio. But if you want to maximize your results, you've got to strength train. I'm not talking about exercise classes like Bodypump either. I'm talking about squats, dead lifts, presses, and rows. Basic exercises performed with the goal of getting stronger over time.

Now I know you have a lot of concerns about strength training. But let me bust a few myths for you: 1. Strength Training is just as, and often MUCH safer than any aerobics class you've done. 2. Strength Training is a ton of fun. 3. Strength Training is not bad for your joints, it's actually the best thing you can do for them 4. You can't get bulky from strength training. If you want science, just know women lack the testosterone needed to get big. 5. You don't have to stop doing boot camps and/or cardio if you love it. Just add in 2-3 days per week of strength training. Despite the fact that strength training sounds like a "hardcore" way to train, our program is designed specifically for people just like you. People with little to no strength training experience. We walk you through everything step by step. We make sure you know exactly what to do. You'll never feel lost. That's our promise. If you're ready to schedule your free consultation, or you'd like to discuss starting in 2018, give me a call at 205-705-9591.  I look forward to helping you make 2018 your best year yet.
