Keeping your New Years Health & Fitness Resolutions in 2007

Posted on

Yes, it is that time again when most of us decide to make some changes in life. These are usually related to our health. Stop smoking, start training, lose some body fat, start eating healthy and so forth. According to a study conducted by GNC, 55% promised to eat healthier, 50% resolved to exercise more, and 38% wanted to lose weight.

This is the probably the worst time to make changes in your life. For one, it is highly ineffective and from previous experience, there are very few of us who actually stick to them! Only 20% of us actually stick to our new promises we make to ourselves. Most new years resolutions are the same every year, and, tend to fade away come February.

Do not let the statistics determine your success. Here we will offer you some inside tips to help you become that 20% and ensure you resolutions remain in tact and become achievements. Never again will you need to make these New Year resolutions.

Develop a Support System

Tell your friends and family about your gaols and how you will achieve them. Better still, set some mutual goals with your friends and work together. Ask them to follow up with you on your progress from time to time to ensure you are on top of things.

Make your Resolutions Attainable

Do not try to conquer Rome in a day. All goals must be realistic and achievable. Give yourself the best chance possible at achieving them. Do not plan to run a Marathon by March. Aim to participate in a 10km walk or a fun run for charity. There are plenty of small events in Bangkok that you can choose from.

Make a Plan

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Just as a business is only as successful as its business plan, your lifestyle works on the same principles. Write down specific dates to achieve your goals.

Break it Down

If your goal is to lose say 5kgs, the write out step by step, just how you will achieve this. If you have tried to achieve this before, also write down the obstacles you experienced that preceded you from achieving them. Then set out to minimize them. If work is one reason why you can get to the gym, then go for a walk at lunch time or speak with your superiors or HR department to introduce workplace health and fitness initiatives.


We all know diets do not work. Changing your eating habits does not determine dieting. Eat sensibly. Eat 4-5 smaller meals pre day. Include plenty of vegetables, protein and minimise carbohydrates. Do not eliminate them,

Reward Yourself

Reward yourself with gifts, holidays and weekends away, a spa package, massage or go shopping. Refrain from using food as a reward. You can also set yourself financial rewards. Set aside a certain amount of money each day or week for getting to the gym x times or eating your five … Read More

Fitness Intensity Training – The Benefits

Posted on

As a Scottsdale Personal Trainer on more than one occasion I have had clients come to me and say "I've been working out with another trainer but I have not been receiving the results I think I should be." My first response to this is usually "well how is your diet looking?" If they tell me that their diet is dialed in, I'll ask "have you been doing your cardio?" Again if the response is positive and they have in fact been doing their cardio, I'll ask "do your workouts leave you exhausted and sweaty?" If the other two answers are favorable this response is usually "sort of, my trainer and I go through the motions and do a lot of talking."

Now I'm not suggesting that it's not OK to talk with your trainer or client during a workout but the point I'm trying to make is more often than not you will encounter trainers who lack one very important element to being effective. Intensity. That one word can be the difference between you the client getting your money's worth and you having a seventy dollar per hour friend. Usually the trainers I've seen do this are oblivious to the fact that they even do it. Most of the time they think that if they can hold a "good conversation" with their client for an hour then they are giving value. This does not make them bad people. They're just clueless to the one word that stops them from being great trainers and you from getting your results sooner. Intensity.

I find that when I mention intensity to people the first reaction is often intrusion. I'm not a fan of intimidation. While that form of training does seem to work well in the military. The average Joe off the street usually does not respond well to this type of training. Occidentally you will have a client who requests the "boot camp" style workout but in general it's not appropriate.

When I talk about intensity I'm referring to a mindset. It's an attitude. We can have fun and we can talk but at the core of this workout we're here to work OUT. This is something that should be understood by both the trainer and the client. Now obviously not everyone is the same. Every client is going to require different levels of "intensity." What might be intense for one client may seem like a light warm up to another. This is where your trainer is so valuable. The trainers job is to find what is the correct intensity for YOU.

Here is a brief breakdown of a workout with intensity and one that goes through the motors. We're going to use caloric expenditure to prove this. These numbers are based on the "calorie expenditure calculator" provided on Hampden-Sydney College website ( http://www2.hsc.edu/fitness/calculators/calories.html )

In the first example we're going to use a 200lb individual who is exercising for one hour with their trainer.

Weight training (normal) = 470 calories … Read More
