The Baywatch babes you have secretly hated all winter long will now flourish. The question is, will you be hiding behind the flowery umbrella with your yellow polkadot, oversized one-piece or will you be the one of those ladies who are secretly admired while on the beach? This is the bad news – you are the author of your own life story. Only you can dictate the physical projection of the main character in your fit story. However, the good news is that the good, the bad and the ugly is a myth, and we can all look the way we imagine. Just choose to be proactive and stick to your choice.
Bring on that tight booty, washboard abs, ripped arms and glutes that solute! Summer is
here and I will be actively cheering you on to reach your own “happy body space”!
I am here to save you from your beach-a-phobia and allow you to feel emancipated and free on the beach this year. But…”big pause”, you have to work with me for the next couple of weeks! It’s crunch time! Wake-up at 5 to train for a change, don’t skip your meals, drink that water and do not forget to do the extra 5 minutes of cardio!
The question for the week:
I’m a 32 year old mother, I’m 1.63m tall and weigh about 52kg and have a petit build. My schedule does not allow me to go to the gym, so I can only do exercise at home. What exercise/diet can I follow to tone my body. I don’t want muscles, just a nice toned body without flabby skin. How long does it take if you do the exercise everyday to see results? Which supplements should I be using to get the results I’m after, and which foods do I need to avoid getting rid of cellulite?
No problem girl… where you do your training is not the key element. Getting it done is. I have attached a JVL YouTube charity video, where you will surly recognise the limited amount of space we had to train in.
My advice is to invest your time and effort into the training that you love and know you will stay committed to. There is actually nothing that you can’t do at home that you could have done in the gym. I do think that your biggest obstacle would be to stick to the plan. With no one cheering you on at home you might become discouraged. But remember that discipline means doing what you have to do, even if you don’t want to. Keep my videos close by and keep up with them to keep the strict pace. This type of training definitely wouldn’t add access muscle to your frame. The amount of cardio added and the light weight combination is the winning recipe to attain this goal. Pump the music nice and loud – I’m sure the neighbours would understand that they are also contributing to your successful transformation – and work that thorough band and speed rope!
As for supplementation these are your basic “must haves”:
Glutamine, vitamins and oils, CLA, a fat burner (if needed), protein shake, natural Growth Hormone booster, vasodilator, Sweet Sweat (or something that burns fat from the outside in as well). Even though these are the basic supplements, please do make sure that you buy these from someone who will be able to prescribe them to you in the correct manner and who will be looking after your health first and foremost.
Cher said that “if fitness came in a bottle we would all be in great shape”. May you find your fountain of youth within your thoughts, spirit and mindset… this is the greatest weight-loss secret! Believe it and make a change today!
Hi ladies, I am so thrilled to announce I have finally attained pro fitness status, and I have some new insights to share with you from the experience.
Jacques and I were so humbled to be invited to compete at this glamorous WBFF show. The stage is bigger, the lighting is better and the audience is filled with fitness fury! I can honestly say this was my “wow” moment in all my years of competing. The Superbowl of fitness, if you will.
Here is all the backstage scoop, which I know is what you’re most interested in). Most of the ladies flew their personal trainers, stylists and PR managers in for the show to assist them 24/7, which was a first for me! So you can imagine our surprise when we placed so well amongst these world class athletes. We were very blessed.
In terms of the key lessons I learnt, the most important one for me was realising that this sport is very subjective. Due to this fact it is important to never be hard on yourself for not placing where you wanted to. In a number of other sports the individual with the fastest time, or most points win on the day simply, whereas a fitness athlete’s fate lies in the hands of 10 individuals who judge you against their personal perceptions and opinions on what a championship physique should look like. Yes, there are specific judging criteria, but on a World’s stage the competitors all look ridiculously perfect and similar, thus the results often boil down to personal preference. My advice would therefore be to compete only with yourself in mind and be healthy for you… that’s the whole point right?
To end off, I’m sure that you all probably want to know what my first victory cheat meal was after the show, right? After all that hard work I went all out – yes. I ate a pizza.
I have this client who has been a loyal follower and friend of the JVL method for years, and she has seen some truly amazing and inspiring results. As her last training session ended she turned her back to the mirror and softly uttered “bum check time!” This made me think… who is the judge of your body?
