In my business I meet with people of all shapes and sizes who are all at different levels of fitness.  A new client’s physical ability, exposure to physical fitness, and health has a direct impact on how our first training session will go. Have they ever work out before? Are they familiar with gym equipment? Are they dealing with any medical or health issues? Is the client looking to lose weight? Is the client looking to be a bodybuilder? Are they just looking for a new form of exercise?  After you Take that FIRST STEP! we need to determine our common mission and our plan of attack!

Now that we have discussed your personal history, goals, and any health limitations, we need to plan our attack on this new mission together.  I use our first workout to “test drive” my client’s body and assess your capability to move through an exercise session.  I do this by gauging how well you can perform the following moves Squats, Hinges, Push, Pull, and a Plank.

These movements are the foundation to the body, therefore, any weakness or limitation in these areas will give me tremendous insight as to where we need to start.  Everyone walks into my gym with their own goal in mind and these basic exercises are the best way for me to evaluate your current level of physical fitness and how to help you to achieve your mission.

Once we learn your body’s strengths and weaknesses, we need to document your starting point.  We will take several photos to we can chronicle your transformation; a frontal view, a back view, and one for each side, profile view.  It has been proven that when clients are able to visibly confirm their progress, they are more motivated to continue their fitness journey and often times increase their efforts.

Documenting your starting point is key to seeing your progress and maintaining motivation!

This is your journey and I am here to educate you, cheer you on, push you, and help you!  We are on a mission TOGETHER!  BAM!!!

 

#TeamKilla Set #4 – #CoachRobJsTT

21032703_1817881674890521_3711140115890992152_nFrom Coach Rob J – Steph is committed to being her best and this is how she and I went about transforming her body from a size 14 to a size 2 in just over a year.  It hasn’t always been easy; there have been tears, yelling, and a lot of pain to get her here.  We were and continue to be on a shared mission. Keep it up Killa! BAM!!!

It’s all about consistency and discipline. The motivation isn’t always there, so many days I force myself to workout, eat right, drink water, go to bed, etc…even if it’s not what I WANT to do that day.   I literally do not allow “excuses” in my life anymore.  Rob said something when I first began doing bootcamp and it has stuck with me for years, “don’t think, just move.”  I repeat this at least 5 times a day to remind myself to do what it takes.  The physical results are of course, fantastic!  Who doesn’t love to be able to wear whatever you want? 20841008_1810494048962617_7664280172392577460_nThe mental and emotional results are the real rewards.

To be able to pick up that heavy weight, go that extra 10 minutes, workout 5-7 times a week, that is mentally strengthening.  I LOVE waking up sore.  It’s a physical reminder that I put in the work, I gave my best, I did what I said I was going to do.  The best part of all of this, however, is when people tell me because of my example, they have started making changes in their own life.  THAT motivates me to lead by example every single day. 

20117044_1772344069444282_8322371101545401641_oI don’t consider the time I put into working out, or the food I no longer eat to be “sacrifices.”  Sacrifices are when you give up something valuable for something else.  I gave up things that did not bring value to my life.  Working out and eating healthy have added value to my life.  I don’t miss the old habits at all.  I don’t miss rewarding myself with food and alcohol.  I don’t miss dreading getting dressed for work every morning, I don’t miss feeling sluggish and tired.

20989046_1815588758453146_6440877220144770709_oFrom a size 14 to a 2 may just be numbers to most; for me, it has been a true transformation. Not just a physical one, but more importantly, a mental one.  I got rid of the baggage, and for the first time in my life, I am genuinely happy and strong.

Share your transformation! Hashtag #CoachRobJsTT!   You could inspire someone like Steph aka #TeamKilla has inspired so many of her friends, family, and co-workers!  This lady ROCKS every workout! BAM!!! 

 

Transformation Tuesday! #CoachRobJsTT

Tony-Robbins changeThere are many ways a person can transform themselves.  Where do you want to focus your efforts? How do you want to transform your life? Spiritually? Emotionally? Physically? Yesterday’s blog, Monday Motivation – Tony Robbins, is proof that anyone can transform and create the life they desire.

Every day, I work with people who are focused on changing their lives, their health, and their bodies.  In order to make these changes a reality, they have to create a goal, create a plan to achieve that goal, and make a concentrated consistent effort.  A perfect example of a transformation and consistent effort is #FresnoFitChef, Barb!  BarbBarb is someone who has changed almost every aspect of her life to achieve her goals.  When she started her journey 3 years ago, she was a completely different person both mentally and physically.

If you Google “Transformation Tuesday,” over 40 MILLION results come up in less than a second!  This is an incredibly inspiring number and a great resource to see so many others taking control of their future.  A common piece of advice to help anyone achieve a new goal, is to surround yourself with like-minded people and those who have succeeded on a similar path.  I would love to see your transformation pictures!  If you want to share your fitness journey, show off your success, and inspire others, share your photo on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #CoachRobJsTT!  I just might use it in a future Transformation Tuesday blog!

If you are ready to take control of your health and work on new goals, check out my philosophy on implementing change in your life.  BAM!!!

Motivation Monday — THE ROCK

IMG_7481Over the next several weeks,  I am going to share some of my favorite sources of inspiration.  This week, I am giving a shout out to The Rock! If you haven’t checked out Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for a little comic relief and a whole lot of motivation, you’re missing out on one of my favorites sources of inspiration.  Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Instagram Page.

I admire The Rock for so many reasons but especially his drive and commitment to his grind.  He is up at all hours of the night and day, working out and working on his career.  His relentless pursuit of success and development is not solely focused on his professional growth.  project-rock-rock-clock-3-600-92902He is also committed to help others achieve their goals and make their dreams come true by his charitable works and special projects.  His “Project Rock”  offers personal motivation for individuals “to help many people get after their goals as possible.”  Wake up and Grind with “The Rock Clock!”

The list of charities to which The Rock and his businesses donate includes Make-a-Wish and several charities supporting terminally-ill children, including his own The Dwayne Johnson Rock Foundation, he founded in 2006 which works with at-risk and terminally ill children.  Dwayne-JohnsonHe is also known to be an avid supporter of our troops and is involved with Boot Campaign, a charity focused on military appreciation.  Follow The Rock on Twitter!

On days when you don’t want to get out of bed or push through the pain, hit up The Rock for a quick injection of motivation.  He is pushes himself despite of his long list of past injuries, to keep his body healthy.   Check out this warm up, which includes the long list of injuries and surgeries he pushes through daily! His work ethic just FUELS my FIRE! BAM!!!   Dwayne-Johnson-Motivational-Quotes-03

BAM! Motivation Monday

Monday-MotivationDo you dread Mondays?  Do you sit at work on Mondays struggling to get in to the groove of a new work week?  For some, just getting out of bed on Monday is a struggle.  After a leisure weekend, working out before work, prepping your meals for the day, and making it to work on time, can make any Monday feel overwhelming.  I found this quick read, from the HuffPost, on why you should NEVER miss your Monday workout.

IMG_9105I also checked in with some of Coach Rob J’s Real Warriors to see how they maintain motivation and asked for some of their favorite resources to kickstart their drive, when they are feeling a little sluggish.  Chef B-rizzle, Bryan, isn’t one for social media or inspiring quotes; his motivation is fueled by results!  He said, “results become an addiction.”  From fitting into smaller sized clothing, the number on his scale decreasing, and consistently noticing improvements in his health, Chef B-rizzle is his own motivation.  I can personally attest that Bryan reigns himself back in and seeks guidance and motivation when he needs to refocus.  Check out his story – Chef B-Rizzle Gets Fit

Steph, aka #TeamKilla, has several resources of encouragement, and much like B-Rizzle, her own results fuel her fire.  Having transformed her body from a size 14 to a size 2 in just over a year, she gets a much needed boost from her before and after photos, inspirational quotes, Pinterest, Tumblr, and she follows a few male and female weightlifters and athletes on Instagram.  Check out some of the accounts #teamkilla shares: Gymaholic, HealthyFitMantras on IG, and Bossbabe.inc.  But between you and me, I think she gets her biggest boost of motivation when she shows up in new workout digs!  Check out how her transformation started, Team Killa.

Deb, aka #teamSunshine, gleans inspiration from all over, but says, “My BIGGEST motivations are Coach Rob’s page at 4:30am, #TeamKIlla and #FresnoFitChef’s instagram feeds, they are 2 crazy inspiring, positive women, and watching the successes of so many others on the web.”  Some of the accounts that she follows on Instagram are The Good Quote, GlennonDoyleMelton (author of “Love Warrior”), Better Things in Life, Kate.Cash.Fitness, and LvnFit.  IMG_5599In my opinion, Deb isn’t motivated by a number on the scale.  When she came to me, she said that she didn’t care what she weighed as long as I  could help her get to a healthier version of her old self.  Baby steps Sunshine, back to baby steps.  Check out when #teamSunshine started her baby steps.

As I have discussed before, motivation and maintaining motivation are key components to any successful lifestyle change.  Starting next Monday September 4th, my Monday posts will be dedicated to sharing the people, quotes, and sites that I turn to for my own MOTIVATION!   Just in case you missed it, check out one of my blogs on Motivation, “The M in B.A.M. Logic!!!”
