Time for New Ideas / by Stephen Cooper

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately.  With more and more information about diet, health, and fitness, it seems that we are growing fatter and unhealthier by the minute.  So what's going on here? Is more information the answer?

There always seems to be "the next miracle product" or e-book, diet, or system that is going to save us from our fatness. (I don't think that will pass as a real word, but too bad.)  Is it the newest supplement or the fitness gadget sold on QVC that will burn the fat right off our thighs?

There are many in the fitness industry who are preying on you.  That’s right, I said it.  Fitness marketing is a science and many trainers and scammers are studying the psychology of how to sell you stuff you don’t need.

So what really works?

Discipline in training hard, eating clean, and paying attention to recovery and regeneration.  Now you don’t have to be a fanatic and stress out about this one hundred percent of the time, but if you really want the best results you had better pay attention to these “rules” at least eighty-five to ninety percent of the time.

I have a new boot camp session starting this Wednesday the fourth of November, but I’m tempted to to make the camp available on an application basis only.

It doesn’t make sense to spend your money or your time if you know you can’t be committed to twelve, forty-five minute sessions spaced out over the month.  You’ll be frustrated and you won’t get the results you had hoped for. (I’ve had clients lose up to twelve pounds in twelve sessions, but that means attending all sessions, and eating clean.)

If you are serious and would like to join us, I’d love to hear from you.  If you are training on your own, please do me this favor.  Stick to the basics.  Get to work, and stop looking and hoping for the “next big thing”.  If you have any questions, or I can be of any help just let me know.

It’s up to you.  Make it happen.
