Nurture Yourself By Exercising

Nurture Yourself By Exercising

Exercise when done consistently helps you to develop the strength, endurance and focus to handle the challenges that bring stress to our lives. It’s a great habit to have in your life.

Exercise strengthens your mind so you can achieve success. When I say SUCCESS, I mean success in ALL areas of your life!

Think about it this way… when you begin to workout you develop strength and endurance for whatever type of exercise you are participating in. When this happens, you will begin to be more confident in your own body because you will be moving and functioning better. You may not be conscious of it but it will be happening.

This confidence will show up in your relationships with your family, your career and most importantly the connection with yourself.

The awesome part is that it will continue to build and build as long as you stay consistent with exercising.

The confidence and self-esteem build in every single person who is consistent at Custom Body Bootcamp. I have seen how people change when they walk into bootcamp, they walk taller, are happier and their smile is from head to toe. I actually seen this happen to everyone who’s been consistent in exercising in the last 15 years of training. To be honest with you, this is why I love what I do.

This happens because exercise is a way of nurturing yourself. I know it may not feel like it especially when you start but it is! It’s self-love and this is how you should look at it!

Learn to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. When exercising just know it’s OK to be uncomfortable and it will pass. You do intentionally because it will make your life better!  You will actually begin to enjoy it after you stay consistent long enough.

It’s not just for losing weight and looking good… It’s a tool for having a great life!

I have a little brag… The pic below is the most I’ve ever deadlifted J. I love accomplishing things I’ve never done before J

Have an awesome day!

Kimberly's 22 pounds of weight loss lead to great opportunities in her life.

Transformation Tuesday “Kimberly Journey”

Check out Kimberly transformation story, I’m so proud of her and all the positive changes she had created in her life.

Kimberly-Ake-8-1-18-Front-After.pngHow much weight loss have you lost to date? 

I have lost 22lbs.

What was your life like before coming to Custom Body Bootcamp?

Life before Custom Body Bootcamp was a series of attempts to lose weight. At the beginning of the year I tried to meal prep which was somewhat successful, but without the proper knowledge on how food is processed in my body and a lack of exercise I didn’t see much results. I also attempted workout plans or Zumba, but the motivation to continue was just not there.

What was your trigger that made you decide to take action and make some healthy changes in your life?

This year I had decided to make a change and start with baby steps, which was altering the way I ate. I was overweight and although happy with myself, very unmotivated, but I wanted to try the challenge that I kept seeing pop-up on my facebook feed. Bootcamp is around the corner and the sessions were only 30 minutes, I just took a gamble pretty much.

What goals have your reached?

My goal has always been to become healthier, but being able to go below a weight I had always wanted surpassed my expectations. I wanted to get to 175, I went down to 168 and have never felt healthier. I didn’t even look this good in high school.

How has your life changed after coming to Custom Body Bootcamp?

It has definitely changed my life, I have come so far, I have no intention of going backwards. It has changed the way I see food and has made me realize that exercising is something that has to be done throughout life, not just for a few days or month. Consistency is very important to stay healthy.

How do you visualize your future self that you are currently creating?

I see my future self as motivated and healthy and happy. I had a conversation with Chris about how when we make positive changes it can attract and make positive things happen around you. And that is exactly what has been happening. I am moving because I am engaged to a man I thought I’d never see again and I am also going back to school to get out of a place I have felt stuck at for years.

What would you tell someone who is scared about trying out Custom Body Bootcamp?

I was scared, so I would say push yourself out of your comfort zone and try it. But you have to surrender completely and give it your all or there is no point

Thank you to the team that was so helpful and motivating. You guys are great! And also to my fellow bootcampers who would push their hardest and motivate me to do the same. This was definitely a life changing experience.

​Our Next 6 Week Challenge Starts September 17, 2018.

How To Be Disciplined To Get Results

How To Be Disciplined To Get Results

Hey there,

My reason for writing this email is to give you a key ingredient to be successful and create healthy long lasting results in your life.

This key ingredient is DISCIPLINE!

Whether you are looking to lose weight, get healthy and/or tone-up you must be disciplined. Let’s be honest, if you want to create any changes in your life you must  have self-control, willpower and take unfamiliar actions that are out of your comfort zone.

So let’s start by defining discipline.

Discipline is action or inaction that is regulated to be in accordance (or to achieve accord) with a system of governance. Discipline is commonly applied to regulating human behavior.

When you are looking to create change in you life, you have to avoid taking actions that are your regular habits and take actions that are unfamiliar to you.   

For example, if you are looking to lose weight and get fit and healthy you will avoid going home and watching TV and instead be disciplined to go to the gym and get a good workout instead.  

The same applies to eating, avoid unhealthy food and eat healthy nutritious food.

Every time you are disciplined and focused you are taking the next steps that will get you the results you are seeking, you are building your discipline muscle!

How do you build your discipline muscle?

Start by writing down the changes you want to achieve, (set your goal). Then list the actions you must take and actions you must avoid.

Become self aware of your habitual patterns so you can have the choice to decide what action you want to take.

Then get to work and start to making discipline choices. When you are making the right choices no matter how big or small you will be develop and strengthen your disciple muscle.

The beauty of being discipline is that it eventually flows in all areas of your life.  Once you start seeing changes in one area, it magical flows to other areas of your life.

So be focused and strict with your goals and build that muscle.

Live Strong, Be Strong- Mind, Body Spirit!

Coconut Oil- Healthy or Unhealthy

Healthy Virgin Coconut Oil

Healthy Virgin Coconut Oil

There’s been lots of controversy in the last couple years to whether Coconut Oil is Healthy or Unhealthy!

Coconut oil consists of 90% saturated fat and research has shown that the fatty acid chains of Coconut oil are shorter than the saturated fats from meats. The shorter chains in coconut oil have been shown to raise good cholesterol as opposed to the longer fatty chains in meats products have been linked to heart disease!

“Coconut oil is made up of about 90% saturated fat, but the scientific community has started to figure out that not all saturated fats are equal,” Susan Mitmesser

There are two types of Coconut oil, virgin and refined. The virgin coconut oil comes straight from the pulp of the coconut and has more nutrients than the refined oil which is heated and has chemical added to it to keep the coconut taste!

In my opinion I think that virgin is the way to go if you chose to use coconut oil. Always go for the higher nutrient, natural food choices.

Also… substitute the coconut oil vs adding in to meals! Example use the coconut oil for the olive oil!

To Your Health,

Chris

 


Beware of Fitness Product Lies

I was researching successful fitness products the other night and I ran across one that really upset me. It was a fitness product that claimed  they can get you a ripped 6 pack abs without changing your diet or spending too much time exercising. The product also claimed that personal trainers hate him because his product get’s people these amazing results and will no longer need a trainer.

He is right about one thing… Personal Trainers do dislike him!

 Personal trainers do not like him because of his product, but because of his lies. The truth is, you must follow a proper nutrition and exercise plan if you are looking to achieve the type of results he is promising. Beware of these type of product because they all over the place. They are preying on people’s desire for immediate gratification. These claims are false, misleading, and unethical.

There are so many reasons why this is unfortunate. When someone who does not exercise buys a product with promised results and does not see the outcome of flat abs or bigger butt, they get discouraged of working out.  Then they start to think that they can’t change, exercise is not for them so they end up gaining more weight and becoming unhealthier. The truth is that they can get results, they just have to do the right eating and exercise program.

I became a personal trainer because I want everyone to be successful with their fitness goals!   There’s nothing like helping someone achieve health which brings happiness into ones life. It’s awesome to see my clients so excited about hitting their fitness goals.

My point of this is… DO NOT BUY THESE BS PRODUCTS! You are capable of achieving these results with exercise and good healthy eating habits.  You will see a change in your body and energy once you dedicate time for yourself and your health.

Tip Of The Day

Drink Water! Train yourself to drink water as a first resort and skip the sugary chemically filled drinks. It may be hard at first but you have to train your palate to not crave the taste when drinking fluids and learn to crave the healthy feeling water provides your body! This doesn’t happen overnight it takes time to adapt. It also doesn’t mean you can’t have your favorite drink now and then… Moderation is key! I remember how bad the cravings were when I was around 20 and I cut out sodas and sugary drinks. I remember thinking how tasteless the water was. And you know what…. It Passed. Now when I drink a soda I feel sick and bloated.

Water is where the health is at!!!
