What is an Achieve-Oriented Lifestyle?

I can’t tell you how many times I hear clients say each week, “man this a tough workout, I know I would never do this on my own, thanks for pushing me coach…!” We KNOW you KNOW how to workout. We also know humans by nature tend to not push themselves as hard as they should or as hard as a coach or personal trainer/fitness trainer will. Work harder, get faster results right? It’s that simple, right?

Attempting to get fit without a personal fitness coach is like trying to fly a plane without a pilot’s license or trying to fill a cavity without having dental training. Fitness coaches are expert body transformation specialists. They study and master the art of using aerobic and anaerobic exercise, strength training, supportive eating and recovery to bring about positive physical change in a fun, effective, safe and efficient way. They do that taking the individuals’ goals, abilities and lifestyle into consideration.

Can someone get fit by themselves, of course, but they are much more likely to get there more slowly, run a high risk of quitting and may even get injured. Those who exercise with personal fitness coaches see quicker and more dramatic results. Personal fitness coaches not only ensure a safe and effective program, they provide motivation, support with positive lifestyle changes and they keep each workout interesting, progressive and fun.

One of the reasons people fail at getting a result from an exercise program is motivation. They fall short of following through with their intentions. When there is not a plan for success and the accountability of a personal fitness coach to rely upon, a majority of people drop out of their fitness program. The fitness coach takes on 50% of the commitment by providing the successful formula along with the motivation and accountability. The client does their part by showing up and making the necessary lifestyle changes.

Most people have tried to start fitness programs on their own at least 13 times before considering hiring a personal fitness coach and having success. When a client first begins exercising they should expect moderate muscle soreness. For some, this is enough of a deterrent to quit. If you have made many attempts on your own to exercise, doing the same thing and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity.

Still not sure how to proceed, check out our website, call or come by and we will HELP you each step of the way in Achieving a better lifestyle and a happier life!

SKINNY JEANS and Muffin Top MELT OFF Challenge ~ Sign Up Now!

Do You Have the Skinny Jeans Blues, the “Muffin Top” Flop?Skinny Jean Challenge

Go Down Two Jean Sizes in  Fitness Challenge (and Solution)

No more “muffin top” flopping over pants; good-bye skinny jeans that can only be tugged mid-thigh-high.   Shedding these problems is the goal of the Skinny Jeans and Muffin Top Melt-Off Challenge announced today by Milwaukee Adventure Boot Camp (MABC)/A-List Fitness, Inc. owner and fitness coach Catherine Andersen.

The Challenge is a professional fat loss exercise program led by certified coaches and includes metabolic and total body training – two separate protocols of high-intensity cardio bursts and strength and resistance training for maximum results.  Held at a new state-of-the-art fitness facility, the eight-week program (April 19-June 12, 2010) consists of four workout sessions per week (for a total of 32, 45-minute sessions); classes are offered on a variety of days and times (see www.milwaukeebootcamp.com for details).  The jean-size-downsizing fat loss program fee is $499, only $15.59/session.

The Challenge:

  • It all begins at MABC’s new indoor facility, 4170 N. Port Washington Rd, Suite 2, in Glendale.
  • Contenders bring to the facility a pair of jeans (from the closet or newly purchased) they would like to fit into; jeans must be at least two sizes too small.
  • All participants receive a FREE MABC 8-week fitness journal.
  • A photo will be taken with participants trying to pull on their jeans (over a pair of spandex shorts or pants).
  • Jeans will be kept at Milwaukee Adventure Boot Camp indoor facility for ongoing “try-ons.”
  • Participants will be given a free fitness assessment at the time of the “try-on” photo shoot.
  • When a participants jeans fit at the end of the Challenge, they will be entered into a drawing for a free pair of designer jeans.
  • In the end, winners can say, “I can fit into my skinny jeans!”

Those interested in losing TWO PANT SIZES and getting rid of that winter muffin top, can sign up now at www.milwaukeebootcamp.com or by calling 1-881-5FIT (5348). All men and women are welcome, but the challenge will take only 40 contenders, so Andersen encourages signing up without delay.  The sign-up deadline is April 23rd.

“Imagine losing two jean sizes in eight weeks,” said Andersen.  “What better way to kick off summer than by shedding those pounds you’ve been wanting to lose?  Follow this program and you’ll not only have fun but you’ll find success too.”
