Success Story: 30 lb Fat Loss in Six Months

Andrew looked us up in February of 2016 for guidance in losing fat and improving his overall health. Six months later he has lost 30 lbs of fat and looks incredible. I took photos of Andrew the first day, but I had Andrew keep his shirt on so we really cannot see the remarkable changes. I did, however, […]

Good Questions

I recently received a questionnaire directed at fitness trainers from a book publisher. The purpose of the questionnaire is for a book that the publisher could distribute to people who may be interested in finding a competent fitness professional. I think it is a good project, and I was happy to take the time out […]

“The Biggest Loser”: A Re-examination of the “Set Point” Thoery

It finally happened. A researcher was curious enough to see what happened metabolically to the people who went through the rigorous diet and exercise routines that must be followed on the show “The Biggest Loser” several years later. The results were sobering but unsurprising. The researcher, Kevin D Hall and his colleagues, published their study […]

HIGH FAT DIETS ARE DANGEROUS?

I visited sciencedaily.com yesterday to see what was the latest on diet and exercise, and, unsurprisingly, there was a research study done on rodents that found a low carbohydrate-high fat diet produced more weight, and especially fat weight on overweight and pre-diabetic mice coupled with worsened glucose tolerance and higher insulin levels. This was in contrast to the control group that […]

“40 Minutes a Week To Buff” Part 1

The tagline we use for our personal training studio is “40 minutes a week to buff”. In essence, we claim that you can build a fit, healthy, beautiful body with only two twenty minute workouts a week. I am aware that this is a remarkable claim bordering on hyperbole, but we have been very successful in helping people […]

Cellulite Study: Progress Report Circa March 17, 2015

We are getting close to the end of the cellulite study that we started in early January. To recap: I took three women, Alex, Rebecca, and Brandy through a three-month exercise and diet routine to see if we can reduce the look of cellulite they have around their hips and thighs. The focus of the study was […]

“We Need to do Lighter Weights”

Last week, when one of my students for the cellulite study showed up for her workout with me, she told me that we had to change up the workout. She wanted to go with lighter weights and more reps. The reason? Here friend told her she was getting too big and bulky…that she could see her […]
