Mark Twain once observed, “A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on.” His observation rings true: Urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas-businessmen, educators, politicians, journalists, andFITNESS COACHES — struggle to make their ideas “stick.”
It's weird to me that some people just don't understand how to do things better..Let's stay on the subject of fitness...It's weird to me how some people just don't understand how to eat better or exercise more efficiently
I hear BAD information being shared everyday..TV, Radio, Instagram, youtube, Facebook....all of it....What I find even more interesting is that even in our Bootcamp Family it happens...
Listen I'm not one to criticize opinions...everyone has one...You like the color blue great, you like soy sauce great...you like motorcycles..great...all opinions.
Calories are units of energy: Fact
Carbs and Protein have 4 calories per gram: Fact
There is a difference...When I share information about eating/nutrition and exercise it's based on science and facts...and in turn when people follow the information I share...we create a result...100% of the time.
So when I hear people exposed to the truth, and facts like they are at our Bootcamp, say things about eating and nutrition that are not true...it's really....really weird.
It makes me wonder...are people not paying attention? are people just against doing things the right way?
Again, I don't have a problem with people having an opinion..I have a problem with people being wrong.
So...let me help some of the people that are being resistant...STOP being afraid of food.
Stop thinking you are over eating...most of you are under eating and slowing your metabolism down...it's not your age, or your weight or that you are a woman or man...YOU ARE SLOWING YOUR METABOLISM DOWN.....YOU..
Want proof...how many of you are "dieting" or "eating clean" and nothing is happening?
All those salads and broccoli and grilled chicken and still no changes...
JUST STOP....you don't need to do any of those things....but you do need to listen...and you do need to change what you are doing...and for alot of you..that is the hardest part..changing your mind...
SO GET READY....I AM ABOUT TO TAKE YOU ON A JOURNEY OF CHANGE!!!!
If you or someone you know is battling any cellulite pockets… then this is great information you won’t want to miss.
+ It's Super Tuesday!!!!
Myth: Only an unlucky few get cellulite
Brace yourself—if you have cellulite, you are one of hundreds of millions of women in the U.S. who’s cursing her luck on that front. “The majority of women have some form of cellulite on their body,” says Dr. Lucas. “From what I’ve seen, it’s 80 to 98 percent of women.”
Although men experience cellulite much less frequently, at least 10 percent of them have it, too. “Men have fibrous bands that run more parallel with the skin surface,” says Lisa Donofrio, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist and Associate Clinical Professor at the Yale University School of Medicine. “Women have bands that run perpendicular, thus causing the telltale dimpling.”
5 Keys to Kill Cellulite
Contributed by – Joey Atlas, Women’s Body Enhancement Specialist
Ask any woman on the street what the definition of "cellulite" is and you’ll get a confused variety of answers. From “toxic fat pockets caught in the skin,” to “bands of fiber pulling down on the skin,” and many other odd definitions in between.
The truth is, most people really don’t know what “cellulite” actually is. And this is no surprise as there actually is no such thing as ‘cellulite.’ So how do we get rid of something which doesn’t exist?
First, we clear up the confusion about the definition of the word, "cellulite."
The word, “cellulite,” was cleverly made-up several decades ago, in a European beauty-spa, to DESCRIBE the bumpy, shadowy and dimpled appearance of skin in the lower body trouble zones of the female body. The butt, hips, thighs, and legs.
The beauty spas then started cashing-in and profiting big-time by marketing “beauty” services and products to get rid of “cellulite.” And if you’re like most women who’ve been challenged by this issue, then you probably already know all of those passive and superficial beauty treatments do not work.
In order to make your lower-body smooth, tight, and attractive, there are 5 keys you must know. Here they are:
Key # 1: You cannot get rid of the dimples and shadows (cellulite) by rubbing an odd gel, weird lotion, or goopy cream on your trouble zones and problem spots.
So, stop using them – as some can actually make your cellulite worse.
Despite the fact that there are dozens of supposed ‘cellulite reduction creams’ on the market, there is no possible way for any one of them, no matter how expensive, to get rid of your cellulite.
Since the squishy dimples and shadows are a superficial symptom of a problem below the surface; it’s impossible for the creams, lotions, or gels, to have any effect on the problem.
Key # 2: Risky and expensive ‘medi-spa treatments’ can only reduce your bank account – not your cellulite problems.
Stay away from these, as the FDA reports show women who’ve been scarred or injured for life. There are countless consumer reports proving this.
Painful, dangerous, and uncomfortable services ranging from endermologie to body-wrapping have been proven to be totally ineffective when it comes to treatingcellulite. But, advertising and marketing loopholes allow these services to be cleverly marketed to millions of women willing to waste a lot of money, out of sheer desperation.
Key # 3: The unattractive dimples, shadows, and saggy ripples known ascellulite are not ‘genetic,’ and you are NOT stuck with them forever if you have them.
Falsely believing this will prevent you from getting rid of your cellulite. So, don’t entertain this nonsense for 1 second.
These two ridiculous myths are often passed around by ‘neighborhood know-it-alls’ – and many women actually believe these 2 myths – especially if they haven’t found the right way to get rid of the cellulite yet.
Yes – it is common to see a mother and daughter, both with the lower-body “orange peel” look, BUT this doesn’t mean cellulite is genetic – it simply means both women have not found a way to lift, tone, and firm the muscle layers under the dimpled, saggy skin.
Key # 4:You CANget rid of cellulite, regardless of your age – or when you began to notice it.
Since cellulite is a structural issue (muscle) – it can be fixed with simple and unique body movements which target the cellulite areas.
It doesn’t matter if the cellulite started in the early teen years – or after pregnancy – or after menopause – it’s still a structural issue that results from mushy, un-toned muscles underneath the saggy, dimpled, shadowy skin.
Key # 5: The only proven way to permanently get rid of the dimples and shadows of cellulite is through a series of simple, yet specifically targeted lower-body movements
These unique movements focus on lifting, shaping, and toning the muscle layers, so they gently push outward against the skin – to bring back the smooth, tight, and sexy appearance, while burning off any excess flab, if there is any.
Most regular fitness instructors don’t even know about this type of targeted cellulite-killing method.
Mostly because they don't bother to look further into the issue of cellulite....
Here are some MYTHS
Myth: Cellulite is just excess fat
Cellulite involves fat, because bulging fat cells are part of the equation, but it’s really the connective fibers between your skin and muscle that create the lumpy, dimpling effect. “Collagen fiber strands that attach skin to muscle are creating the pockets of skin,” says Jennifer Lucas, M.D., dermatologist at Cleveland Clinic. “What you’re seeing is normal fat that everyone has. Why you’re seeing it, is because there are areas that are being pulled down.”
Myth: Losing weight will make cellulite disappear
If you’re not building muscle, eating a diet that support fat loss, and staying hydrated, weight loss may exacerbate cellulite. “Most experts agree the best way to reduce and eliminate the [bulging] of subcutaneous fat within connective tissue is aerobic exercise and weight training,” says Shane Allen, a certified weight loss specialist, personal trainer, and sports nutritionist. “Strengthening the fibrous connective tissue under the skin helps regain elasticity, which makes the appearance of cellulite less prevalent.”
And especially don’t turn to liposuction. Even if you had $10,000 at your disposal, this fat-sucking procedure can worsen the appearance of your cellulite. “The problem is, even if you get rid of deeper fat, you’re not addressing the top part of fat,” says Dr. Lucas. “It’s not addressing the puckering.”
Myth: Getting a suntan makes cellulite disappear
Sunbathing in the actual sun will only make cellulite worse. UV rays damage your skin by breaking down the collagen and elastin network, making cellulite more visible, says Dr. Donofrio.
Myth: You can remove cellulite by working out a certain area
Cellulite-targeting exercises are a fiction, but it is true that toning (building) your muscles overall can reduce the cottage-cheese effect. Building muscle in your thighs, for example, can plump the muscle there and reduce cellulite somewhat, but “your body burns fat at the same exact rate all over your body,” says Allen. “This means cellulite or fat on your thighs will burn at the same rate as your belly. So, while you are helping the area you’re working appear more toned, you’re not burning fat there any quicker than you are on the rest of your body.” Dr. Lucas agrees: “The more physically fit you are, the less susceptible you’ll be to cellulite,” she says.
"OK, COACH, So what do we do???"
Well if you are serious...only if you are serious...
1st Understand this...Most sources state that there are over 650 named skeletal muscles in the human body, although some figures go up to as many as 840. The dissension comes from those that count the muscles within a complex muscle...
Erase all of your ideas about what you think you know, unless you can name all 840 muscles, reading "stuff" on instagram is not a source of
2nd Understand this, Gluteus Maximus..there is some of that cellulite there The gluteus maximus is the largest muscle in the human body. It is large and powerful because it has the job of keeping the trunk of the body in an erect posture. It is the chief antigravity muscle that aids in walking up stairs.
3rd...Time to Understand this...YOU CAN GET RID OF CELLULITE...but YOU are going to HAVE TO WORK FOR IT...
and by work and mean train (train hard) and eat in way that supports that...all the time, not sometimes

+The Power of Nitro Nutrition
For the last decade Kyäni has been providing the world with unique nutritional supplements that are based on some of the finest Superfoods found in nature. Most of us are familiar with the story of the Wild Alaskan Blueberry, and the powerful anthocyanin pigments that protect it from damage caused by the harsh environment. Blended with more than 20 additional ingredients, the result is what we now enjoy as Kyäni Sunrise, with water-soluble nutrients we take in the morning for maximum bioavailability.
The Omega-3 fatty acids found in Wild Alaskan Salmon and other fish are also well known for their positive impact on many of the body’s vital systems, supporting everything from a healthy cardiovascular system to promoting a healthy immune system response. And in addition, Vitamin E in the form of Tocotrienols from the Annatto plant provide more valuable nutrition to keep us healthy. These lipid-soluble nutrients are best taken before bedtime. The true key to realizing the full value of the Triangle of Health is Kyäni Nitro. Nitro contains extracts from the noni fruit, which your body can use to produce Nitric Oxide—one of the most important signaling molecules in the body. Nitric Oxide, which promotes healthy circulations and helps ensure your body’s ability to absorb nutrients.

DO YOU HAVE ANY BACK PAIN?
I know most people think I spend most of my time reading about fat burning and gaining lean muscle...but I read a lot more than just that...A LOT
Better sleep, better brain use, and tons of strength rehab...including the back or more specifically the spine...
Recently I have been studying some information from the LEADING back fitness and performance expert and have come across 4 MOVES...that are ESSENTIAL for Ultimate Back Health and Restoration...according to his research...95% of the people that are candidates for back surgery, can be healed and skip surgery with his techniques
This Doctors approach to back rehabilitation and injury prevention includes what he calls the "big three exercises." They are meant to increase endurance of the muscles around your spine. The exercises are low-intensity, which means that they are very safe. The point of the big three is not to get stronger, but to build endurance and control of your spine....and we will be incorporating them into our Warm up at Bootcamp regularly...
You have to be a member to come do them with us...but I will give you the 4th move...that we will be including in our workouts more often...
Stirring the Pot!!
planks are a great exercise to train core endurance. As counterintuitive as it sounds, most people suffering from lower back pain have really strong backs – the reason they’re jacked up most of the time is because they’re using their backs for everything and are unable to dissociate their lumbar spine from their hips. As well, they have atrocious spinal endurance and stability. So more often than not, after establishing proper motor patterns, the first plan of attack is to gradually build their endurance up using various planks/lumbar spine stability drills, hip mobility drills, as well as improving general movement quality skills.
How to do it:
assume a proper plank position on a stability ball – braced abs, glutes tight, you know the drill. From there, you’ll simply move your forearms in a circular fashion maintaining a rock solid position the entire time. Read: there should be as little movement in the lumbar spine, hips, and pelvis as humanly possible. If you have to widen your stance in order to do so, then do it. Conversely, if you want to make it more challenging, narrow your stance. Or just have someone ninja-kick the ball out of no where.
You have two options as far as duration is concerned: You can go for either time or desired repetitions – I prefer the latter. Perform six to eight FULL repetitions going in one direction, then switch, and repeat going in the other direction.
Give it a try today, and let me know what you think! If you are coming to Bootcamp today...we will be warming up with the BIG 3!!
