HERE IS WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE AS I GROW MY WINGS IN THE FIELD OF HEALTH AND WELLNESS:
LIFE IS BETTER WHEN YOU TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. AT 60 YEARS OF AGE I CAN CONFIDENTLY SAY THAT PRIORITIZING ME WITH REGARDS TO FOOD, EXERCISE, SLEEP, JOY, RELATIONSHIPS, CREATIVITY AND CAREER I HAVE MANIFESTED A LIFE THAT PLAYS A CRUCIAL ROLE IN HOW I FEEL, HOW I LOOK, AND HOW I FUNCTION DAY IN AND DAY OUT. I AM CONFIDENT THAT ANYONE GIVEN THE TOOLS AND ENCOURAGEMENT CAN DO THE SAME. IN MY CAREER I HAVE SEEN THE TRANSFORMATIONS OVER AND OVER AGAIN. AS A CERTIFIED HEALTH AND NUTRITION COACH I AM HERE TO HELP YOU DO JUST THAT.

Burn Fat in the Shortest Time Possible
This October will marked my 22nd year as a ‘SPIN’ instructor, and my 21st year as a personal trainer. I have never stopped teaching during this time, but I have changed the way I teach based on what I discovered is best for our bodies. As a fitness instructor and a personal trainer I am constantly learning and evolving both with my work-outs and for the classes I teach. One of the most important facts that I have learned over the years is: Fitness is intensity dependent, NOT time dependent.
Meaning, it’s the quality and intensity of your workouts that get you the best results. But the problem is, most people think that you need to workout for at least an hour to see results. Not true! The length of time you workout has far less to do with your results. This fact is a very tough one to get across to my clients and students. In an environment where classes are 1 hour and the belief is that the longer and harder you work-out the better the results, I find myself spending a lot of time convincing others this is simply not true. In the last 4 years I have adopted The 'HIIT' method of training for optimal results from a cardio workout. “High-intensity interval training (HIIT), is a form of interval training, an exercise strategy alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. 'HIIT' is a form of cardiovascular exercise.”
Several studies have shown that a 'HIIT' session is significantly more time effective for losing fat than traditional “low-intensity steady state’' cardio. If your goal is to burn as much fat in as little time as possible, then HIIT is the way to go.
Research has shown that 'HIIT':
*Increases your metabolic rate for up to 24 hours
*Improves your bodies ability to better absorb and use the food you eat rather than store it as fat
*Increases your muscles ability to burn fat for energy
*Elevates growth hormone levels, which aides in fat loss
*Decreases post-exercise appetite, which helps prevent over-eating
You only need a couple of hours per week to increase fat loss, with each session lasting only 20 to 30 minutes. Now I want to make it very clear that exercise is not one size fits all. Not all of my clients have the same fitness goals. There are many factors that come into play for individuals that determine what is best for them, such as age and past injuries to name a few. It is my job to weed through each variable and help my client reach their maximum genetic potential; this is why I call my business Fit By Design. But one thing that I find as a constant is that 'HIIT' training works with positive results for everyone that uses it as long as their commitment to diet and strength training exercise are also intact. Check out my website for 'HIIT' routines and send me a comment on how it’s working for you. I think you will be very pleased with your results!
