28 Body Fat Challenge (2).png

Energie4 is giving YOU the chance to lose the body fat you don’t want. We have partnered with 5.4 to have all your meals prepared and delivered taking the hassle out of your hands and really you have no excuses now.

We hear it all the time, a client says “but I eat healthy and I know what to eat”. If only we had a dollar for every time we heard that. At the same time if you know what you are doing, why are you sitting in front of me asking my advice? Where is your 6 pack abs?

The fitness world is a strange place, as everyone seems to know it all when it comes to training and nutrition. There is so much information out there these days with the internet and social media, that everyone is an expert. We do have to consider who is an expert? Does a 100,000 instagram followers make you an expert? Does the fact that you are on the morning show make you an expert or on a fitness TV show? Or is it the fact that you have studied for many years, and provided results over a broad range of clientele? To be honest who really knows, the world is a very different place these days and there are a lot of blurred lines.

What we do know though is that if you don’t produce results, how good are you really? We don’t care how good your trainer looks without a shirt or in a bikini, if they can’t transform YOU! Gym selfies or standing on stage with next to nothing on with a horrendous fake tan doesn’t mean they though how to help YOU. Means they know how to help themselves, and those same strategies, 9 out of 10 times will do absolutely nothing to help YOU!

Nutrition plays a big part in your transformation. This is why we have partnered with 5.4, their meals are tasty as well as right for YOU. YOU will not have to prepare or shop for your food. In conjunction with Energie4’s nutrition reset and YOU will be losing body fat. Remember losing body fat is always the aim, not just weight off the scales. No one wants to be skinny fat, hence you need to fuel your body right, as well as train the correct way.

Second Chances

Screen Shot 2017-08-21 at 1.02.30 pm.png

There are always opportunities to restart something you may of started but not quite finished.

Yes it is cold outside now, but it won't be to long to the sun starts coming out and you will want to be in your best shape.  Often people beat themselves up for not taking advantage of their motivation and then they let it slip.  However, just because you didn't achieve it the first time, doesn't mean that you can't have another go.

However, it is never too late to get back into an exercise program and change your nutrition. Plus it is always best to start sooner rather then later. 

Although the exercise might hurt a little when you first start back, you will find your muscle memory will soon kick in and you will be training just like you hadn't had a break.  The best way to get back into it, is by doing an old program, rather then something new.  Even heading out for a big walk or short run will get you moving in the right direction.

When it comes to nutrition, making positive changes can be hard, but the body responds very quickly to better food choices.  You will find that your energy increases within days, which not only helps training drive but also your ability to make better food choices.

Once you have given yourself this second chance to get back into your healthy lifestyle, you will be very pleased with the changes in your body composition, your energy levels and how much more healthier you feel.  Getting started maybe be daunting but remember you just need to build it into your lifestyle and start slow.  There is no need to go back to 5-6 days of training straight off, work on your nutrition and add 3 days of training for the initial period.

Discipline

It takes a lot of discipline to get this lean.  Hugh Jackman in Logan who I trained.

Discipline is being strict, having self control and restraint! 

So how disciplined to you need to be to reach your lifestyle goal?  There are a number of factors, the first being how far away you are from your goal and then also the time frame.  For example losing 10kgs in 4 weeks or gaining 5kgs of muscle in 4 weeks.  Both are very ambitious goals, so discipline is going to be crucial, because time isn't on your side.

Life does and will get in your way, however it is the people who have the strategies to counter them, that often succeed.  Here are two things that you can do for a disciplined approach, to assist you in achieving your body composition goals.

1.  Exercise

To lose 10kgs of body fat in 10 weeks, takes a discipline approach to your exercise.  You need to know how many strength training sessions and energy training sessions you can fit into a week.  I like to break the week into week days and weekends.  Their are two reasons I do this.  Firstly, people are usually more motivated at the start of the week, so they often get 2 of their 3 sessions done by Tuesday, giving them three days to get one more session in.  Secondly, adding at least one session in on the weekend, takes discipline to ensure they train but also keeps their focus.

2.  Nutrition

Is it hard to be disciplined with your food?  No.  So why do so many people struggle with their nutrition.  The easiest way to stay disciplined with your daily nutrition, is to start your day with a great breakfast.  It is very easy to prepare something at home before your day starts or order something at a cafe, that has the right carbohydrates, proteins & fat.

To reach your goals you need this kind of disciplined approach to your training & nutrition, every day & week.  You can't go half a week on, half a week off, or have a week off and expect not to go backwards.  At the end of the day, it comes down to how badly you want to achieve your goals.  If you are committed to your goal, then being disciplined will be much easier.
