The Cardio Debate

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

One of our great debates in the fitness industry still rages on:

 ‘You need to do cardio to lose weight’ runners-on-a-tready

 If you’re sceptical that you can get results without doing cardio, then you need to read this…

 My advice (and this works with excess protein intake as well)…

 “Just cut back on the cardio a little bit each week until you realize that doing less doesn’t actually slow your fat loss progress.”

 In fact, if you replace it with harder shorter intervals, I’ll bet you that will get more results than you would sticking to the long distance cardio. Want to see for yourself? If so, then  sign up for a month of Personal Training with one of our Personal Trainers or one of our Boot Camp programs doing short intervals only, and I guarantee your body shape will change or I will give you your money back…

 Most people don’t realize that you can’t expect to get different results by doing the same thing over and over again, but people are afraid of change. They’d rather keep on running for 45 minutes and not lose weight than try something different that pushes them out of their comfort zone a little bit for as little as 20 minutes and see the fat melt away.

 My personal opinion, people stick with cardio because it is easier mentally & physically to go for a jog or use the strider compared to doing real burn fat workouts that can change your body (such as the Succeed burn fat fast workout (due out soon), bodyweight exercises, and interval training).

 Taking the easy way out does NOT work.

 And it’s boring.

 Succeed’s NEW “burn fat fast workout” training program will be available online soon. It will be a complete training program available for purchase online that will transform your body.

I have been trialling this method of training for the past four months and have lost over 8kg of Bodyfat so far…. and I haven’t ran longer than 25 minutes in any session.

Still got a bit to go.. here is my target – vince-del-monte

 Stay tuned!

Stupid Ideas

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

I am not sure where I get these stupid ideas.

Before I even started yesterday I was still sore from Monday’s session. I had already taken Tuesday off to recover, but in my stupidity I thought I will push through and train…. and then to top it off I decided to do two sessions with 10 a minute break in between ( not the best idea I have come up with).

Within the Cross Fit world they call each session a WOD ( workout of the day). Due to the fact that the first one only took four minutes, I thought I might squeeze a second one in.

BAD IDEA

WOD 1 was deadlifts & hand stand push ups. Three sets at 21 reps, 15 reps, 9 reps for time.

85kg Deadlift (was supposed to 105kg but I was a bit soft) 21,15, 9

Hand Stand Push Ups 21, 15, 9

Time: 4.10

Avg HR: 151

Calories: 61

WOD 2 I decided to do a 4km time trial. For those that know me know that I really SUCK at running. If you know how to work out the timing on a treadmill it has taken me over 5 minutes each kilometre, which is slow I know, but hey doing the best I can without dying here….

Time: 20.10

Avg HR: 167

Calories: 357

Wish I looked like this guy below….

man-running

In saying that this was a stupid idea I actually recovered quite well this morning, although I am still quite sore all over. Not sure what today’s training will bring???

Any way I have a couple of my Personal Training clients wanting to do a modified version of Cross Fit this morning, so I am heading off to put them through their paces ( I will be taking photos today and will post them tomorrow).

By the way I am heading off to go through the process of getting the official qualifications for Cross Fit, although you could say it is a modified version of Personal Training or Boot camp ( another name really). It is still a grey area for legal purposes like the name Boot camp is,  but I really like it and it is something that I would like to teach.

Stay tuned in the coming months for some big news from the Succeed Team in Canberra!!!

Bootcamp Questions

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

Do you need to be fit to attend a Bootcamp program?

No, that’s why you have come to us. The course has been designed to challenge all fitness levels, from ‘Couch Potatoes’ to elite athletes. At the commencement of each program you will be required to complete a Basic Fitness Assessment (BFA). Your Instructors will use the results of this BFA to separate the group into ‘Sections’, grouping together individuals of a similar fitness level.

What type of results can I expect from Bootcamp?

Bootcamp achieves significant improvements in the following areas in as early as two weeks:

  • Fat Loss
  • Muscle Tone
  • Muscular Endurance
  • Agility
  • Cardio-vascular Endurance
  • Muscular Strength
  • Speed

 What makes Succeed  Bootcamp different to other so called ‘Boot Camp’ programs?

Succeed Bootcamp is the ‘Real Deal’.

The secrets to Succeed Bootcamp success are simple:

  • We GUARANTEE results
  • You will achieve measurable results in the first 4 weeks
  • Every single session will challenge you, not only physically, but often mentally & emotionally
  • Bootcamp programs are periodised, meaning that every single session requires you to work harder than the last

 How much does Succeed Bootcamp cost?

Bootcamp program costs less than $15 per session or $35 per week.

This includes 12 – 36 physical training sessions (depends on the program), your Bootcamp  t-shirt, drink bottle, pre and post health screening and fitness testing.

Imagine achieving better results for less than a boring gym membership where you are on your own…

Also, return Bootcampers receive a discount on all additional courses.

Who instructs Succeed Bootcamp?

Bootcamp is Instructed by Australasia’s only fully qualified organization of ‘BOOTCAMP INSTRUCTORS’.

These Instructors undergo a rigorous training camp and assessment, administered by Motivate to Train Organisation under Fitness Australia regulations.

 What do I need to bring with me to Bootcamp?

When you enlist in Bootcamp you will receive your own Bootcamp t-shirt, which you are to wear to each and every session..

In addition, you will need to dress in comfortable running shorts or tights, and shoes

To each session you should bring the following:

  • A windcheater or jumper (to put on before you warm up, and after you have finished training)
  • A towel
  • A bottle of water. (Be sure to hydrate properly the day before you train, as it is too late to try and do it once you start the session)
  • Asthma puffer if required

 Once I commence a The Bootcamp program, can I receive a refund if I need to stop?

No refunds will be given after course commencement. To enquire about the possibility of putting your enlistment on hold, you should speak to one of the Succeed Directors.
