When wanting to lose body fat and improve muscle shape and/or size you must "feed the change" instead of "starving it".  The traditional model of eating less and doing more cardio DOESN'T lead to the best results AND causes you to feel like crap throughout the process.  Instead, learn how to do it a better way, a way that produces more permanent changes AND allows you to feel better along the journey!!!

With the change in normal exercise habits it can be harder for clients to remain motivated and consistent in their training.  As a trainer, our best focus is to ask ourselves "How can I best help?"  Instead of focusing on exercises and workout structures, what we often like and find most exciting, can we "think outside the box" and provide more support towards motivation and accountability.
