Transformation Story- Julia

I’ve been asked again and again to show the fantastic results my clients have had.
Often we’re too busy having fun to take photos. which is a good thing, I think!

This made me realise that my system gives great results – but I don’t shout about it enough!
So, this year, my 30th in Fitness, I decided to reduce my group exercise teaching program so I could concentrate on Semi-Private and Personal Training and my On-line plans, that helped – in combination, so many of my clients achieve brilliant FAST fat loss and more importantly give them the tools to stay healthy and fit because the lifestyle changes they made are all sustainable.

Julia came to me via another client- as most do. – thanks Nic.

A joy to teach, always enthusiastic, willing to give anything a go.
She introduced 3 of her friends too!

She joined small group fit camps, attending 3 times a week. These 30-35 minute sessions never repeat, roll through a 5 week training progression.

I took photos when she came in for her body composition analysis. So Here are some before and after shots…
They are proving a bit tricky to add into this blog but the will appear soon!

The sessions in her plan included HIIT, Tabata, MRT, MCT, Circuits and many other formats to ensure maximum effect in the least amount of time.
My sessions are hard work – F.A.S.T stands for Fast, Anearobic, Strength Training… So you can expect to sweat, work harder than you ever have before but leave feeling exhilarated.
Safety is my priority, and my years of experience means I can accommodate most people- no matter what size, shape or fitness level they are.

I think Julia is a fantastic example of how you can completely transform your body and rework your lifestyle to include a balance of fun, work and wellness.

Getting Nowhere on Your Weightloss Plan?

Getting Nowhere On Your Diet?
Stuck on a Weight Loss Plateau?
Want Support to Get You Started?

Why You Need Body Composition Analysis with me.
You’ve decided to make some changes, you decide to go on a diet. You plan to start on Monday- because everybody does! It must be a law or something.
Then you follow your plan, if you’re wise you let everyone know so they support you.
You avoid those around you that have NO self control and want to tempt you- they want you to stay like them! (over-weight & unhealthy)
PROBLEM_ after a few days you feel you’re not getting anywhere, you’re waistband is till tight and you feel hungry- ALL THE TIME!

You can’t see any progress because you didn’t record your Starting Point! Seems obvious, right?
But, most don’t weigh or even better measure themselves. They don’t want to know how they’ve let themselves go…..

In my experience you will double your chances of success if you bite the bullet and make proper records.
I offer this measurement and much more….

I will measure your body fat, your hydration level, muscle mass, bone mass and the dangerous fat around you tummy and calculate your Metabolic age- which is a great indicator of your fitness and health.

I won’t leave you with a string of figures that mean nothing to you. I give a report with some ideas and suggestions to get the best progress possible.

After helping many clients – I know that monitoring your journey Bi-weekly plus completing a 3 day diet diary GUARANTEES success!

Get in touch NOW to arrange your Starting Point assessment. It takes 30 to 40minutes. You will benefit from it and realise how to be successful and maybe why you’ve failed in the past.

Starting Point Assessment
7 Day lead time to allow for Diet Diary, Activity, Health & Fitness status questionnaires.
Often your initial assessment will be an option when you choose your Free session included with my transformation plans
Appointments are available daytime, evening and weekends.

First appointment F.REE with your session packs (PT, Fitness, Fatloss & Pilates)
£25 as a one off OR £20 as an add on to your Personal Training, Fitcamp or Pilates membership.

Do Pilates and Bring Your Grand Mother….

Joan chooses Pilates for her Well being.

Joan chooses Pilates for her Well being.

Get Moving and Bring Your Grand Mother…..

‘Pilates Past 50’ sessions from JaxAllenFitness.com

“I have some older clients who can articulate their spine better than someone 20 years younger, and their fluidity of movement is expressed in a balanced body that moves confidently through space.”

To reverse the effects of aging in seniors Jax stressed that a, flexible spine, focused mind, strong core, legs and feet were essential to balance any body that is to move gracefully and youthfully.

Pilates focus on balance, flexibility, breathing and strength are some of the methods’ key concepts that help oil the joints and condition the body and mind to reverse the effects of ageing.

British journalist, broadcaster and politician Joan Bakewell is now in her seventies and has been doing Pilates for over a decade. Pilates, she says ‘ I want stability.’

Bakewells senior Pilates workouts gives her “a tremendous sense of well-being.” Pilates addresses almost all of her functional needs at this stage in her life. “I didn’t want exercises that left me puffing and red in the face, nor did I want to pound machines.’

‘What I wanted was Subtlety, thoughtfulness and at my own place in a quiet and peaceful setting.”

Jax Allen offers Pilates and other fitness training to combat the effects of ageing, stress and improve well-being in Cheltenham and Gloucester for everyone no matter what age or ability level.

4 Minute Fad Sweeps Fitness Industry?

There’s a ‘new’4 minute addiction that’s sweeping the nation that’s
proven to be BETTER than 30 minutes of normal, boring cardio.

Canadian researchers at Queen’s University tested a workout using
workout “finishers” style of training against long cardio.

(Reference: Appl Physiol Nutr Metab. 2012 Sep 20.)

– 22 college-aged women did 4 workouts per week for 4 weeks
in one of three groups.

Group A: did 30 minutes of treadmill running at 85% max heart rate

Group B: did 8 rounds of 20 seconds of a single exercise (burpees,
jumping jacks, mountain climbers, or squat thrusts) with 10 seconds
of rest between rounds.

Group C: did nothing (they were the non-training control group).

Results: Both training groups increased their aerobic fitness levels
by the SAME amount (about 7-8%).

That’s right, the short workout finishers (of ONLY 4 minutes)
worked just as well as 30 minutes of cardio!

So it IS possible to get healthy in just a few minutes a week.

Shocking? Yes, but that’s not all.

ONLY Group B, the workout finishers style training, increased
muscular endurance in common exercises like chest presses, leg
extensions, sit-ups, and push-ups.

And finally, this intense but brief training method used by Group B
also resulted in greater overall workout enjoyment.

Make sure you read that last sentence one more time IT IS KEY…

Enjoyment is VITAL to consistency when it comes to any hobby or interest. Exercise is no different – otherwise you’ll never follow through and get the results you need for a healthy life.

The Canadian Scientists concluded that “extremely low volume body-
weight interval-style training” will boost cardiovascular fitness just as
well as common cardio while giving you BETTER improvements in muscle
endurance.

All in only 4 minutes.

My training system (est. 2009) includes ‘finishers’ and ‘sizzlers’ that offer these benefits, ensuring fantastic results for my clients. Including fast & furious, short bursts into the many styles of metabolic sessions I offer.

And best of all, my clients don’t have to change what they do- I constantly change workouts to prevent boredom and guarantee results!

I add “Finishers” to my favorite workouts to double results and create a 38 to 48 hour “after-burn”…

And still NO cardio.

My secret weapon is “finishers” the way we end or ‘Sizzle’ through our workouts is essential for long term Fatloss.

So don’t be surprised when you find yourself with NEW definition in muscles
you haven’t seen before after trying my system.

If fact I’m so sure you’ll get fast shape-up results I offer 100% money back guarantee!

I believe in my system- so will you!
