So you want to have “toned” arms and reduce stomach fat? Yes, this is very possible and we do this for our members. We are also up front and to say spot reduction does not exist. We focus on overall fat loss(IF THAT IS THEIR GOAL, FOR A LOT IT’S NOT!). The big picture involves even more than diet and exercise, but overall lifestyle. With our consultation we might even suggest some techniques to manage stress/cortisol if you want to reduce stomach fat. Studies have shown a huge link to stress/cortisol levels and fat storage patterns.
Want to have “toned” arms? I am using that word because you “understand” what it means. In reality “toning” is a myth. Sales people in fitness have to use words like “toned” to sell to the masses. They realize saying build muscle and lose fat (what toning actually is!!) scares off most women. They know women have a fear of looking like the incredible hulk if they lift anything over 10lbs or do reps under 20 reps! If Kate Upton can deadlift over 200lbs and not look bulky what makes you think you will? Because you saw one woman (who WAS taking drugs) look bulky who lifts heavy weights? A good article below if you want to learn more..
Please don’t get me started on these programs that have a day for each body part!.00000000049 of the population needs a body part split. We call them pro bodybuilders that have the luxury of working out 4 hours per day. But a ton of them are on drugs and can do this stuff, or anything, and get results. If the average person at these places makes it 2 or 3 days they are always going in and just working abs, arms, and conditioning. That. Will. Not. work! It won’t even work as well for your abs, arms, and conditioning!! But it sells because there are so many that are so locked in on I just want abs and arms!! We focus on full body workouts. There might be an emphasis on movements and body parts by day, but the entire body is worked! Every study shows that full body workouts work better than body part splits for fat loss!
Injury prevention-Your body is one piece!! If you don’t believe this see what happens if you lose the ability to move at the ankle. Your knee will get messed up at some point. If you have terrible hip mobility then you will have back issues! Sit at a computer all day with terrible posture and yes you will have tight hip flexors and bad posture/shoulders!
You can not address improving balance without getting stronger. You can not address getting stronger while ignoring mobility to do the exercise with better technique! You can not address mobility and flexibility without addressing soft tissues quality! This is why we cover all of these areas with our sessions!!
Success never happens in isolation, which is why we provide coaching(24/7 access) and accountability with common sense principles. Principles that have been proven to work! If you are JUST looking for gym access or a “group class” we are not a good fit for you. If you are looking for a lifestyle transformation center whose foundation is built around coaching, accountability, and education then you will not find a better fit than us! If you don’t see the value in having coaches in your corner busting their glutes while offering food log reviews, assessments, checking on you when you miss, education, home workouts, one on one consultations to discuss modifications for injury, and doing whatever it takes to get you results (all included in membership) then we are not a good fit for you. The problem is 95% of gyms work for 5% who will get results no matter where they go. We get results for the 95% of people who fear walking into a big box gym and/or need more attention….We are for PEOPLE WHO NEED THEIR LIVES CHANGED.
I know it seems very complicated. It is not. The things in life I am not good at are things I made complicated. When I have coaches break it down I realize my brain made it complicated. I was looking to justify failing instead of focusing my energy on positive thinking, hard work, and taking daily actions towards my goal. Coaches are able to take your big picture goal and break it down into what has to happen now! The time, energy, and money you are wasting to do it yourself (or not do anything) can be invested into getting Results that will carry over to every other aspect of your life!!! Invest in yourself!!
Instead of focusing on why it won’t work try believing in yourself for a change and make it happen! Life is too short to sit on the fence and make excuses. when you are ready…….

FREE SUCCESS SESSION– Use this one on one 30 minute consultation to learn more and see the studio. We are not going to put you in position to fail or feel uncomfortable. If you have concerns over previous injuries, lack of exercise history, or being placed in a group where everyone is “advanced” then I address this.
TRIAL OFFERS- We then set you up with a TRIAL OFFER that is not associated with a contract to try it out first. The difference between a coaching program and a gym is that we give each member WAY MORE ATTENTION when it comes to reaching YOUR GOALS. We hold you accountable.
