3rd if you can't watch live, it will be on Youtube, Spotify and iTunes later in the day
4th...Why watch or listen...well Brian and Carrie are some of the top Mindset Experts on the planet...they are our friends and business partners in some upcoming projects....but what we are talking about is this:
A few weeks ago I told all of you that I wanted to have them on, because one of the hiccups in your fitness journey is your thought process
All the ideas and concepts you have built up over your lifetime.
How you feel about the scale, carbs, eating at night, working out, lifting heavy....and more...are feelings in your mind based on your thoughts and have nothing to do with my math and logic
So tomorrow we are going to talk about moving past all those things, unlocking the keys to the driver's seat in your mind and how to get the outcomes you want with a system and program like the one we offer.
Last thing...1st Phorm just a released a NEW powdered L-Carnitine
L-Carnitine is an amino acid derivative that plays a key role in transporting fatty acids to your cells to be burned as energy. We have paired L-Carnitine L-Tartrate with Fucoxanthin, an antioxidant compound known as a carotenoid, found in certain green superfoods. Fucoxanthin stores itself inside fat cells, and over time prevents fat storage and induces fat loss.
Last week we had our 2nd Episode of the 2022 Season for Lais and The Coach
and this was a good one!
WE HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHAT WITH ASHLEIGH

Be sure to comment, subscribe...and be interactive...ask questions
Hey Everyone...Lais wrote this Post Last Year...and it was a Good One
Things you may not know we do...
On social media, most people make a lot of assumptions...
For example... 1. Most people, think we own a gym and prepare local people for fitness competitions.
So we wanted to write a post to talk about some of the things MOST people don’t know we do
Most of the people that we help transform (whether that be Nutrition, Exercise or both) are NOT competitors
It’s moms, it’s dads, people looking to lose a few pounds, people looking to feel better, people looking to take better care of their. Some have weight loss goals and some don’t. And most of them don’t ever ask about the stage. Even though it’s something we think everyone can do.
2. Our Podcast/Show Did you know we have one?
Most people don’t know that we started a Podcast 4 years ago! The first few episodes was just Rafael Moret and it was all audio. We actually did a lot of episodes that way. It wasn’t until our 3rd or 4th interview with one of the competitors on our team that we decided to do video as well
and then a few episodes after that we rebranded the show to #laisandthecoach and now we do a weekly show/podcast LIVE on FACEBOOK and you can catch it on YouTube and listen on iTunes or Spotify
Obviously we talk about fitness and working out but we also talk about a lot of other things...We’ve had a lot of guests recently and plan on having a lot more. So if you haven’t watched it, look us up!
3.Most people think that we started doing this a year or 2 ago when in fact Ralph has been training people and coaching since 1995
So there’s a quarter century for ya!
And he’s damn magical at what he does if I do say so myself
4. Most people think we do “homeschooling” because we keep our kids at home. When in fact, what we’re doing is #UNSCHOOLING Look it up
Or listen to our show...
5. Did you know, that we host immersions? It’s a weekend (48 hours) with us
We eat together, we train together, we chat; people come for a 48 hour Bootcamp of all the things you could be doing and should be doing to maximize your results regardless of your goal and fitness level
A.K.A- you get to live with your coaches for 48 hours!!!
6.Most people think all we do is workout When in fact we are BIG FOODIES that like to go salsa dancing
I've been chatting with Lais about it for a while, and yesterday we while Mollie visited with us, we talked about it.
As I collect more and more data on everyone I Coach...I can spot different trends and one of the ones I see is the "All or Nothing" approach
If I can't eat all my meals, drink all my water and train like a beast in the gym...then I'm not doing any of it
“Too often, we fall into an all-or-nothing cycle with our habits.
The problem is not slipping up; the problem is thinking that if you can’t do something perfectly, then you shouldn’t do it at all.”
James Clear, Atomic Habits
I'm sure you have seen the quote about what happens if you have a flat tire...
Do you change the tire? Put some air in it? or...do you slash the other 3 tires?
Well, that's kind of the approach...I see a lot of people use...sometimes not even realizing it...and it paralyzes them
A lot of times, I will tell someone...let's just focus on drinking water today...or let's go for a 10 minute walk...yes...Ice cream is on your meal plan...just execute your plan...
And there are so many blocks...Ice Cream is not "diet" food, 10 minutes won't do anything...what good is drinking water if I had pizza for lunch?
But that is NOT a plan or program thing...it's your though process or mindset about it
Yesterday I saw my friend Brian wrote:
"Achieving a goal is about adopting the principles and values associated with the type of person capable of achieving that goal."
Drinking the water
The 10 Minute Walk
Eating the ice cream
Is NOT about the single outcome those things will produce...it's about taking the action, or putting in reps
One of my favorite books is Atomic Habits...James Clear talks about starting with Reps, not Goals
Start With Repetitions, Not Goals
Whenever you put in consistent work and learn from your mistakes, incredible progress is the result.
If you want to be stronger, you could analyze every movement and phase of your technique until you're blue in the face. Or, you could get under the bar, learn from your mistakes, and focus on doing more reps.
Put in Your Reps
When you look at goals this way, you start to realize that setting up a system for putting your reps in is more important than choosing a goal.
Everyone wants to make progress. And there is only one way to do it: put in your reps.
The goal is just an event — something that you can't totally control or predict. But the reps are what can make the event happen. If you ignore the outcomes and focus only on the repetitions, you'll still get results. If you ignore the
goals and build habits instead, the outcomes will be there anyway.
Forget about the goals this year. What is your plan for getting in the reps you need? What is your schedule for putting in a volume of work on the things that are important to you?
Most people...most of you, start with the goal first
I want to lose 10lbs
I want to run a marathon
I want to get on stage
I want to wear a bikini at the beach or pool
But you are not putting in the daily reps required for those things...or in some cases even have a plan in place for them
I his Book "Mindset Matters Most" Brian says:
"Consider yourself a camera sitting atop a tripod in the middle of a massive room. Your perspective is contained to a very limited viewpoint. The room itself is full of wonder, awe-inspiring potential, and unlimited possibility, but you have become fixed to a stationary position. Through that small window of a
camera lens, you have created a story and a conviction that this angle of the room is the only angle that exists.
Unless someone were to move the tripod.
Then the story would change."
Coaching...or Coaching the way I do it, is about moving the Tripod...Not taking the picture for you or doing the work for you, or telling you what to think or do.
And that is why it's not for everyone...
People want to restrict and deprive themselves for 14 days and pretend lose 10lbs...
I'm looking at you having a much bigger transformation....and I'm looking at you being able to keep it
Look at Julie...today we celebrate our 2 Year Coachaversary ...we started this journey together 2 years ago...and most people see her before and after picture and get inspired
but the one that I see, that most people miss is this one
2 years!!!...No rebound.....
No restrictions, no giving up bread, or sugar or eating out
No crazy hours in the gym, or long hours of cardio
And we are not only holding on to the results we go, we are still getting better
Want to know how?
1st she put in the reps...she was consistent with The Process...she ate her food the way I mapped it out, no matter what friends, family and co-workers said...no matter what her mind would say...she put in the reps.
Of course she had doubts and fears...but allowing the tripod to be moved created a new vantage point...and the story changed.
Now, as we wrap up 2021...and take our 10 minute walk into 2022...what will be different this year?
For most nothing...because they will approach it the same way they always approach it...
What I hope, if you have made it this far into this email, is that you you change...because most of you looking for changes, forget the change requires changing...not staying the same
Let me circle back to Brian and his Facebook post....for context and let me mention, I'm going to invite him to be a guest on our Podcast because I think it's important:
"But as we inch closer and closer to the annual celebration of Resolution Season, it may by worth noting that we can't achieve what we don't become.
Achieving a goal is about adopting the principles and values associated with the type of person capable of achieving that goal."
Who do you need to become in 2022, to achieve the outcome you want?
I wish you all an AMZING New Year
Thank you for an incredible 2021, can't wait to share more of what we do with you
