Ellie – Testamonial

I met Ellie when she joined my Pilates sessions as a guest. A busy mother of a grown up family, walking her dogs twice daily, a keen dancer and working full time she needed a no nonsense solution to her needs.

This is Ellie’s transformation story.
(In her words)
——————————————————–
In May I went to the Doctor because I felt rubbish, I was tired, grumpy, sleeping poorly, my skin was dry and flaky, my hair was coarse and thinning and my nails were peeling and breaking.
I was overweight and nothing I tried could shift the excess.
The doctor suggested a Well Person MOT and blood tests. I also decided that I would also take matters in my own hands and start following more closely the nutritional and exercise advice offered by Jackie.
I started slowly, making little changes, then attended Jackie’s irks hop in June and it was a revelation. I learnt so much!! I feel better than I have for a long time, many, many friends and family have noticed too!
Everyone wanting to know what I had been doing to make such a transformation, including my GP when I went back for 2nd blood tests in July.
Hair, skin, nails, posture, sleep, energy and flexibility ( which has been noted at by dancing class) all improved. The classes are great fun too!
Thank you Jax

I will let the stats speak for themselves
MAY
Weight: 9st 6lbs
Dress Size: 10/12
Cholesterol: 5.6

JULY
Weight:8st 5lbs
Inches Lost: 13
Dress Size: 8
Cholesterol:4.2
——————————————————
As you can see Ellie was very pleased with her results. She’s a great example of a client that gradually made nutritional changes, committed to regular exercise sessions and worked hard to stick to her simple plan.
She followed this blog, my twitter feed and joined my support group too.

If you read this and want the same results – get in touch for FREE trial. I have a few trials of 7, 14 and 21days to show just how simple it is to get REAL results without starvation, fad diets, crazy exercise, hours on the treadmill or running through mud!

5 Reasons Girls Should Weight Train!

Why should you add resistance training to your routine?

20140914-180409-65049210.jpg</a

If you've read my posts before, you'll know that I'm a firm believer in strength training for everyone – not just for body builders but for anyone that's interested in developing or maintaining a healthy body composition.

We had a great session in my studio a few days ago, I had my breakfast group dead lifting and squatting relatively (for them) heavy weights.

Now, before I hear your calls of 'lifting heavy weights makes women bulky', I'd like to remind you that female body builders have to train for hours most days to make significant muscle gains and obsess about their diets, eating huge amounts of calories to keep their increased muscle.

Other comments I've heard in the past have been 'it's dangerous, it's bad for your joints, and once you have muscle, you can't stop lifting or it will all turn to fat'

Let's get a few things straight. It's all rubbish and it helps fuel the myths that keep too many women from experiencing the profound benefits of strength training.

20140914-180228-64948204.jpg

So, girls when you sit down to list your fitness objectives, you may be surprised to learn that strength training will not only help you reach them, but may help you reach them faster than performing cardio exercise alone.

Yoga and the treadmill have their place, but they’re not enough on their own. Here are five reasons you should prioritise strength training in your fitness regime.

1- MORE EFFECTIVE FAT LOSS: Think weightlifting only benefits those who want shirt-ripping arms? Think again.

Although many people consider weightlifting only a means to add size, when contrasted head-to-head against cardiovascular exercise, resistance/strength training comes out on top in the battle to burn calories.

The huge advantage to weight training is your body’s ability to burn fat during and most importantly, after exercise.
Studies show that compared to cardio you’ll burn NINE times more fat after weight training and continue burning fat for at least 36hrs after training!

20140914-175845-64725864.jpg

2- MORE MUSCLE, MORE CALORIE EXPENDITURE: As you increase strength and lean muscle mass, your body uses calories more efficiently. Daily muscle contractions from a simple wink to a heavy squat contribute to how many calories you burn in a given day. Sitting burns fewer calories than standing; standing burns fewer than walking and walking burns fewer than squatting and lunging with added resistance.

The more muscle contractions you experience during a day, the more calories you’ll burn. If you have more lean muscle mass, you’ll have more muscle contractions and thus burn more calories.

20140914-175751-64671917.jpg

3- CURVES – AS YOU INCREASE STRENGTH AND LEAN MUSCLE MASS, YOUR BODY USES CALORIES MORE EFFICIENTLY: As you build muscle, your body begins to take a nice hourglass shape. Though endurance exercise can help you lose weight, that weight comes in the form of both fat and muscle tissue.

If you’re losing both fat and muscle, you can lose those lovely, and they are lovely, curves as well. Strength training can help create and sustain them.

4- STRESS RELIEF: Exercise in general is a great way to manage stress. Researchers have consistently found that those who regularly strength train tend to manage stress better and experience fewer adverse reactions to stressful situations as those who do not.

In addition, resistance-training studies on older adults show that moderate intensity weightlifting improves memory and cognitive function. Next time you need to blow off some steam, hit the weights.

5- QUALITY SLEEP: Strength training greatly improves sleep quality, aiding in your ability to fall asleep faster, sleep deeper, and wake less often during the night.

A study published in the International SportMed Journal suggests that morning resistance training or high intensity training greatly affects the quality of sleep and lengthens the time of sleep the night after training.

Here comes the science. If fat loss is your goal, a primary purpose of these training programs is to produce a large metabolic hormone response, notably growth hormone (GH). At night during deep slow wave sleep is your biggest opportunity for GH production.

If you’re not sleeping soundly, you won’t get the GH release and In addition, stress hormones such as cortisol will be elevated. The HPA axis that governs hormone levels will get agitated, adaptations will be compromised, and fat loss will stall.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS, GET LIFTING GIRLS.
I’m sure you all want to feel strong, determined, and confident in everything you do from fitting into jeans, to moving heavy furniture, to playing with kids, to dealing with a stressful career.

Resistance training can benefit you in all aspects of your life and make you feel stronger, healthier, and more confident. It’s a key component that guarantees results from our rest based, breakfast and evening training sessions.

Otherwise, find a local gym, personal trainer or weight training group, you’ll see results fast!

THIS time I WILL lose………

 
 "THIS time I will lose ....... pounds of fat 
      and gain ……….. pounds of muscle !"


20130821-232423.jpg 
 
Autumn will be here before we know it, 
the evenings will draw in and we will 
start thinking about the end of the year. 
 If you’re like me I also start to think 
about doing something different to do, 
and as I’m not looking to go to evening 
classes I will set goals to get in better
shape before Christmas.
 
These tips really work…   Read Them… Use Them… 
 
 
1. Life Style Plan
Use a lifestyle fat loss plan rather than a crash-diet
you know will just let you down. 
Remember every crash/mad/ weird/Detox diet you have EVER
tried didn’t work either.
 
Let's get real:  Almost every diet plan is based on getting
your excess weight off as fast as possible...
 
AND THAT KEEPS US FAT!
 
My plan includes eating your favourite foods every week.  
Dropping body fat quick enough to keep me happy especially
at the beginning - YET  Slow enough to keep your BODY HAPPY.
 
 
If your body is happy your fat loss will stay steady and not
 rush back as soon as you return into a normal pattern.
 
 
 
2. Write Goals in Your Journal
Write your goals down in two different formats to take
advantage of the way your brain processes information.
 
Your mind is a marvellous machine... but you have to know
 how it works to take full advantage of the power between
 your ears.
 
Just "speaking" a goal or thinking about it is NOT going
 to get you where you want to go.  Most of us know this.
 
And perhaps you take the next, crucial step:
You WRITE DOWN your goals.
 
That's great... YET that's only 1/4 the battle.
 
Here's what you must do:
 
20130604-175520.jpg

Write your body goals down two ways. 
Keep both goals in different locations 
around the house
where you will see them and read them 
frequently.
 
 
#1:  PRESENT TENSE:
 Here, you state your goal as if it has already happened.
 The TRICK here is to do so without lying to yourself. 
 
A lot of "Self-Help" gurus suggest saying things like,
 "I am fit, trim and beautiful!"  Yet if you are NOT fit
 or trim YET and you KNOW it, this idea can backfire... 
especially if you love honesty.
 
Most of us love honesty, so let's BE HONEST with ourselves
 while still taking advantage of the power that future-tense
 goals can offer.
 
Write your goal like this:
 
"I see December 1, 2013, and I see my body: Fit,
trim, and beautiful!"
 
Same strategy - better results. 
Since you can imagine December 1, 2013, your mind will be more
empowered to imagine the BODY you desire along with it. 
 
 
 
 
#2:  PROCESS-TENSE:  
This is perhaps the BEST way to state a goal -- 
as one in the process of becoming reality. 
This is the best way to keep
it real as well. : )
 
Here's what you say:
 
"I am in the process of becoming more fit and trim by December 1, 2013!"
 
Your body will start following your mind's directive and 
help you achieve your goals. 
 
 
 
3. Finally, buddy-up!
 
If you have a family member or friend that shares your 
desires for a better body in 2013, team up with them. 
Studies show that friends and trainers that keep you 
accountable increase your success for long-term weight 
loss by over 400%.
Use my Facebook group to meet other likeminded health &
fitness enthusiasts  Facebook.com/Jax Allen and request 
to join our Fatloss group.
 
So buddy- up and make a promise to train 3 times a week every week,
 together No Excuses!  You’ll not be able to let your plan slip. 
Weigh-in regularly and keep your results coming.
 
 20130821-231332.jpg
Remember, if you train with me - there 
are rewards for bringing along friends 
and work mates  – they get a FREE trial –and when they sign up you get a FREE 
session credit or two.
 
 
 
However:
 
Your FIRST STEP... and most important for success, is to have your lifestyle-friendly diet plan ready to go.  
Be Honest with yourself – make clear decisions about what you want 
to achieve and how you will make it happen and you will !!

Lose Fat NOT Just Weight

Think Fat Loss, Not Weight Loss

 

After class last night I was lucky enough to spend time with clients that have acheived great results – they have seen body fat drop and muscle increase. One in particular works hard on her diet, she pays attention to her training program. They both train VERY hard, vary their sessons, change what they eat, sleep well, soak in Magnesium salts and always ask questions.  Fabulous, Well Done

I’ve just emailed their results to them and toght this article might help you acheive the same transformation!!  Go For It…

As you go about your fat burning program plan, one thing that you must make sure you’re doing is thinking about fat loss, not necessarily weight loss.

This is where so many women go entirely wrong. They get all caught up in what the number on the scale is telling them that they forget to even consider what type of body tissue they’re actually losing.

There’s a big difference between losing body fat and losing body weight, so it’s a must that you understand this difference. If you don’t, you may resort to extreme measures just to see that number on the scale going down.

Let’s go over some of the key points that you need to keep in mind as you move through your fat burning workout.

The Difference Between Weight Loss And Fat Loss

The very first thing that you need to understand is what this difference is. Weight loss refers to total body mass loss. This could be lean muscle mass loss or it could be body fat loss.

But, when you’re on a fat burning program, you aren’t going for muscle mass loss – it’s that nasty fat that you want out of the picture.

As such, it’s fat loss that you’re after. Lose weight and you may just look like a fatter version of your current self because your total body fat percentage will have gone up.

Stop obsessing over the scale!

The Devastating Techniques Women ( & men) Use To Lose Weight

In the quest for weight loss, many women resort to incredibly devastating techniques such as crash diets, ultra low carb diets, extreme workout programs, or even full out fasts.

This is not the best way to produce the most optimal results. Often they’ll be spending hours per day on the treadmill while eating hardly enough food to feed a five year old.

This is NOT how you go about losing fat!

The Consequences Of These Techniques

What’s really bad is what these techniques are doing on their ability to see optimal fat burning. As they use them, they’re burning up precious lean muscle mass, which is the tissue that keeps your metabolism humming along properly.

As this occurs, they burn fewer and fewer calories each day, making further weight loss that much more difficult. And if they ever do come off the crazy diet they’re using, they’ll not only gain all the weight they lost right back (as body fat), but often gain even more because of their super sluggish metabolism.

So now they’ve lost their lean muscle mass and gained fat mass – this is not a recipe for an attractive body.

The Smarter Approach

Lift those weights girl! ( & boys)

So what’s the smarter approach? A much better way to see optimal fat loss is to combine a proper resistance training program with the right diet. This is what will kick fat burning into high gear. Your metabolism will increase and you’ll burn body fat 24/7.

That means eating 5-6 meals/snacks throughout the day.

Yes, you should be eating that much – come for your assessment with us and learn how many calories you should be eating everyday.

Be consistent with your training approximately 3-6 times per week for no more than 45/60 minutes each session.

Always look at it as ‘burning’ the fat instead of ‘starving’ the fat. You’ll also get much better results by burning it off than starving it off.

So remember, lose body fat NOT body weight.

Muscle mass is far more dense tissue compared to body fat as well, so even if you are slightly heavier because you have more muscle, you’ll look smaller than someone who has more fat mass and less muscle.

Avoid the scales. Use the mirror and tape measure as an indication of how you’re progressing along with your fat burning program and you’ll be much better off.  We will assess your body fat%, lean muscle mass – for each limb and your torso. We can then suggest a daily protein, carb and water intake.

What do you gauge your progress on? Weight loss or Fat loss?
