IS trying to lose weight a MISTAKE?

 


Image
Hello Everyone...It's Tuesday!!

This is "One of those" emails.

 

You know, the kind that makes you think.

 

The kind that make you say

 

"Well that's not what I mean"

 

WHEN EVER YOU STEP ON A SCALE...THE NUMBER REPRESENTS THE SUM OF THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF MUSCLE, WATER, BONES and FAT in YOUR BODY

 

When you say...I want to lose weight or I'm not losing weight

 

What do you mean?

 

Do you want to lose muscle?

That would create weight loss?

 

Do you want to lose some of your bones?

Probably not, that would create a whole other problem, but would also create weight loss.

 

Want to lose water...believe it or not, some do...even though we are made of water.

 

What you most really mean, most likely...is you want to lose bodyfat...but for some reason that is hard to say.

 

I think it comes with the idea that you understand it's not that simple...and then you would have to choose the right words.

 

But choosing the right words is important...I'm not going to tell any of you that want to lose weight to change your goal...but I will ask that you consider changing the way you think about that and how you refer to it.

 

I will also ask the you consider how much all the food and fluid you consume weighs and connect how you consume that much weight and don't gain it

 

But I guess we would have to address that fat does not weigh more than muscle or muscle does not weigh more than fat 

 

But we would again have to use words for what they mean (insert brain explosion emoji)

 

I'm not trying to give anyone a hard time...I just want you to think, and stop saying the things people keep saying without thinking about what they are saying

 

 

I hope all that makes sense....send any questions my way, even the muscle or fat weighing more...I'd be happy to explain it

 

Coach Rafael

 

 

 

PS...guys I have re-opened the MANS4MATION project for the fellas.

I want to add more guys to the stage this year. I have 3-4 guys getting ready to compete in March in Orlando...and want to open up room for 3-4 more.

 

We are going to have a blast that weekend. If you want more info let me know, if you know someone that might be interested let them know to reach out.

 

Ladies we are already assembling our Team for March, April, June, August, and November 2023...reach out. The more time you give yourself to prepare the better.

How Many Transformations Do You Need To See?

 



Image
Hello Everyone, Happy Friday

 

How Many Transformations Do You Need To See?

It's an interesting question, right?

 

I've asked myself a few times...I remember a few years ago at our other gym, someone walked in one day and after looking at some of our Before and After pictures on the wall...said "if you had a few more pictures that I could connect with I would definitely join your program"

 

Hmmmm

 

I have never really done a great job at collecting Testimonials, or collecting Transformation pictures...not the reason I do what I do, or the reason I started. But I realize the power of the Before and After Pictures...so we started collecting more

 

All different kinds of people, all ages, all kinds of results to showcase

 

We have built a pretty decent size wall of transformations at our gym, so that when someone walks in, it's the 1st things they see and for the people that come every day it's a reminder 

 

Now...in the last 3 months since we opened I have been asked numerous times if all those pictures are real...

 

The other day I laughed, because someone asked that, "are those pictures fake?" and Coach Juan was standing next to his Transformation, Lais was standing next to hers, Coach Brianna was teaching and my picture was on the wall...the skepticism is real.

 

But I get it, I think...too much evidence also means you have to take some ownership of your actions and well that's a subject for another day, but not everyone likes that.

 

But...How Many Transformations Do You Need To See before you say...Yes, I'm ready to make some changes and this program clearly works

 

Occam's Razor, put simply, states: “the simplest solution is almost always the best.” It's a problem-solving principle arguing that simplicity is better than complexity. 

 

And in this case, I could argue that based on the evidence...the simplest solution is that our program can deliver these transformations

 

Look at the video below...so I don't fill this email with pictures

NOW...Here is the OTHER side of this coin,

We have a much BIGGER Problem

Think about those stats for a second

 

Let's go back to Occam's Razor, put simply, states: “the simplest solution is almost always the best.” It's a problem-solving principle arguing that simplicity is better than complexity. 

 

All the thing people are doing are NOT working

The More Than 5 Million Books Sold are not helping

The "Diet" Industry is selling a lot of stuff that is also not working

 

And here I come with evidence that I have hand crafted...real solutions, with real people, that are sustainable...

 

Solutions that can help save those $27 billion dollars it's going to cost

 

Solutions that I am not selling for $72.6 billion dollars...sh*t at this point if they can sell stuff that doesn't work for $72 billion, what can we charge for the stuff that actually works?

 

Hold on to that for a second

 

Cause I got more, what about the restrictive eating? the cutting carbs? the fatsing?

 

You have to do all of those....right?

 

Well let me SHOW YOU what we do

 

 

OK...cool, but maybe you don't want to here it from me

"If you smoke or have diabetes, your risk of death goes up a lot. Your risk of death from having high cardio respiratory fitness goes down far more than the risk of death goes up from smoking and diabetes. Smoking or Diabetes will double or triple your risk of death depending on the time frame you are looking at. Having High Cardio Respiratory Fitness is a 5 FOLD REDUCTION IN ALL CAUSE MORTALITY...death of any kind. The are NO drugs with a 5X reduction in mortality. Now, when you layer in STRENGTH 💪 and Muscle Mass it's a 3 Fold Reduction in ALL cause mortality...when you compare high strength to low strength.

 

PEOPLE!!!

 

Again, I understand the skepticism...I mean the pictures can be fake, who knows if those are even Doctors.

 

But what if you heard it from the people 1st hand?

 

We have so many interviews with our clients on Youtube for our podcast Lais and The Coach....but here are some highlights for you to listen to

 

Ok, but now what

 

I have shown you pictures, videos, interviews, evidence on evidence

 

and you are looking for Results.

 

But I know, I know...it's NOT enough...right?

 

So, all week I have been telling you that we are changing the way we do Nutrition Coaching...and we are.

 

November 1st which is a Tuesday, the day after Halloween...I am launching a NEW Program...sort of.

 

I like doing things a little different, so it's more than a program. 

 

Now...how does this help you or what can you do?

 

1st this will be available everywhere...so you can do it from anywhere in the World and you can do it locally if you are in our area

 

2nd as you can see, I like evidence. So I would like to go through a test round.

I think this would be a great start to the New Year...so starting off 2023 with something like this will be awesome...but so will closing 2022. 

 

I would like to run a test round to collect more evidence and to help a few of you close out 2022 on fire!!!

 

This is the 1st time I am even mentioning this...and because I want to test this out, I will be offering a trial run for this 1st group at a discounted rate, and certainly won't be close to $72.6 billion dollars like the rest of the "diet" industry is doing

 

But STEP 1 is to see if you are even interested in getting results...

 

So I am collecting names of people interested here:

=>>Get on the I'm Interested List Here<<=

 

That's all I got today

 

Listen even if you are not interested, I hope some of this information helps you.

 

Results are there, and they don't require any non-sense

 

I wish you all a GREAT weekend

 

Coach Rafael

 

 

PS...before you start asking what I call "talk yourself out it" questions like how much? well not $72 billion, how long will it take? less time than any surgery or recovery from surgery? I don't have time...no one has time for anything they don't want to do, and they also can't make excuses for no outcome

 

PPS...my schedule is pretty full, so I can't take on to many, so I have made this in a way that won't require to much time to implement

 

PPPS =>>Get on the I'm Interested List Here<<=

Do You Feel Like You Are Losing Motivation?

 


Image
Hello Everyone it's Super Tuesday AKA Taco Tuesday!

I like to send this email out every so often, because I know how some of you might feel, I have felt the same way

 
Do you feel like you have lost some motivation or like you are losing momentum?
 
Maybe you are not sure why you just don't get started or maybe keep going once you do?
 

Here is the thing....the reason you feel that way is because you are not INSPIRED..

 

I hate to tell you but..."I want to lose weight" or "I want to start eating better"

are just not motivating goals...or certainly not motivating enough to keep focus through the End of The Year.

 

Neither are having the same goals you had when you started.

Guess why?

 

Because once you reach a milestone...you are now a different person, and that old goal...is just that, an old goal.

 

2 Days ago we recorded our podcast with New WBFF Wellness Pro Brianna ...and we talked about a few thing like staying motivated after competing 5 times, the mindset you need to keep getting better, budgeting for a competition and more

(*this episode is also on Spotify here <<=)

Lais and The Coach chat with WBFF WELLNESS PRO BRIANNA

Tony Robbins says "Goals are Dreams with Deadlines"

 

And that is what you need too!!
 
You are not skipping out on your workout because you are not motivated, or because you don't have time, or because of the kids, or the spouse. You are not skipping because you are tired or because of your health or because you have something better to do...
 
Those are all reasons you should go to workout and eat better but you don't.
 
You are skipping because you haven't really committed to the idea that YOU CAN...and you give yourself a pass too easily.
 
We are all humans that need activity for health and vitality, we all get the same 24 hours...too few of us make 1 of those hours the one where we get physical...
 
Now before I give you some solutions...and I have a few, let me give you some perspective
 
I have a unique take on "I CAN'T"
 
To me...I can't eat my food, or I can't go workout...means literally not being able to
like a physical impossibility 
 
If you can get up right now and do some squats and some jumping jacks, do 1 push up...You can...I can't means there is no physical way it's possible
Gillian Barre and CIDP can't stop you
So my challenge for you today is...DEFINE YOUR GOAL!!
 
Put a date to it...when do you want to get to that GOAL??
 
Is your current eating plan going to get you there??
 
Is your current workout plan going to get you there??
 
NOW SOME SOLUTIONS
 
We have 88 Days until December 31st
 
So let's get to work
 
1st Need some Workout inspiration...
Well let's start with location...In Central Florida?
We opened our facility and have workout Monday thru Saturday morning and evening
 
Not in Central Florida? Did you know we offer our class from the gym LIVE on Zoom at 6:30 pm? Well what if we also offered it at 9am? Would that help you?
Logging in from home to join the workout live from the gym?
We offer a membership with access to that...what more info, reply to this email
 
GOALS...want to know what it takes to get ready for the stage?
Lais and I are hosting a FREE webinar on Tuesday October 18th
Here is the link for that event, so you can grab a spot
 
And here is Video #2 we made explaining it
 
So You Think You Want To Compete

NOW...if you really want to make a shift

 

I am a fan of "Being in The Room" 

 

Listening to a song and being at a live concert is not the same.


Watching Football, Soccer, Hockey or Basketball on TV and being at the game Live is not the same.

 

There is something about being in the room...the energy is unreal...it's a VIBE

 

Over the years I have attended so many events...and I still have so many to got to...But the ones that have made the most impact...have been the ones where I could Immerse myself in what I was doing
 
I've gone to UPW with Tony Robbins 3X's in New Jersey, in Ft Lauderdale and in Dallas...these were 4 Days (50 Hours)
Masterminds in Arizona and San Diego (3 Days Each)
Fitness Events in in Las Vegas and Connecticut 
 
One of the BEST Programs we have (in my opinion) is our IMMERSION
 
What is an IMMERSION?
 the act of immersing or the state of being immersed: such as. a : absorbing
 
Sometimes you need to get out of the environment you are in, not that it's bad, but it might be stagnant or still...and we need to grow.
 
Sometimes you need to really set time aside for you, and put more thought into what you are doing and where you are going
 
I think our 48 Hour IMMERSION does just that.
 
Imagine coming to spend 2 days with Lais and I and just focus on you.
Your training, your food, your goals, your life...without interruption.
 
Would something like that move you forward?
 
100%
 
We have had so many group Immersions Weekends, and honestly we love it, but we don't have any weekends open for group Immersions for the rest of 2022.
But one of the things we have started doing is PRIVATE IMMERSIONS
Just for you... 
 
If you are interested in something like this, Lais and I have a few people already locked in to come spend 48 hours with us, but we will open up a few more spots because I believe in this so much.
 
If you want more info on dates and what exactly goes into it, just reply to this email...but if you have ever come to to any of our events, or workouts or anything we have hosted and left the event feeling better...100X that by going all in for 48 hours
 
AGAIN...88 Days till December 31st
 
Every Day counts
Every Meal counts
Every Rep counts
Count them All!!!
-
Imagine if you went all in for 88 Days?
Imagine if you went all in for 30 Day?
Imagine if you went all in for 7 days?
Imagine if you went all in today?
 
Depending on where you are in your journey right now, one of those is where you need to start....
 
I wish you all an AWESOME Tuesday!!
 
Coach!
