4 Metabolism Boosters

Here’s the bottom line: If you don't increase your body's burn rate or metabolism, you won't be able to burn the fat you want to get rid of.

That’s it. THE bottom line.

I’m going to give you 4 ways to boost your metabolism, lose inches, and eliminate the fat?

“But wait Tim! Doesn't your metabolism slow down with age?”

Yes, it does. But...if you follow the tips I outline below You can prevent your metabolism from slowing down.

Heck, you'll increase your metabolism! And reverse the aging process!

But you must avoid the hype. I’m talking about those heavily marketed metabolic boosters. They’re BS. So don’t be fooled by catchy signs and slogans, tight bodied models, and the other deceiving tactics they use.

Here's the truth about the top 4 metabolism boosters and how you can use them to burn the fat.

1) Strength training

Strength training should be at the core of any fat loss program. It boosts metabolism up to 10% after a training session. The lean muscle that strength training helps you build will firm and tone your body like nothing else out there. Strength training MUST be a part of your fat-blasting workout routine.

2) Breakfast

Research shows eating breakfast is associated with successful weight loss. Breakfast increases metabolism because it breaks your overnight fast. Hence the name ‘break-fast’. So make it a habit to consume some protein, fiber,& fruit (& even veggies) at this time. This will keep your appetite in check till your next meal.

3) Eating every 2-3 hours after breakfast

You’ve heard it before. Eat 5-6 small meals per day boosts metabolism and
can help control cholesterol. Try and split your meals up into smaller meals that can be eaten over the course of the day. This one simple tactic can be the difference between becoming a fat burner or a fat storer.

4) Interval cardio training

Interval training causes a greater increase in post-exercise metabolism than regular cardio. It doesn't matter how many calories you burn during a workout. What matters is how much you burn after the workout. Interval programs lead to more weight
loss than a long, slow cardio training program.

There you have it. 4 ways to immediately boost metabolism and burn the unwanted body fat.

Hard work and proper nutrition burn more calories and help you lose fat. Our clients prove that day in and day out. On the other hand, magic pills and potions just don't work. But that shouldn't be a surprise to you.

My advice...

Add the foundation of our system into yours. Strength training, intervals, mini-meals, and breakfast should be in your weight loss plan and you'll burn body fat fast thanks to your increased metabolism.

Are The Rumors True?

Yes. They're true.

Rumors were floating around that some saw me on TV. And yes! I was on TV last Saturday. At the Cardinals/Red Sox game. It was nationally televised on Fox. And the Redbirds took 2 of 3 games from the Sox. Go Cards!

The best part...I was sitting Row 2, Seat 1! AMAZING!!!

So every time a left handed batter stepped up to the plate...there I was. Front and center.

And even better was getting to stand and cheer as WE won. Redemption baby!

That's a few of my friends and I. You can see the 'Green Monster' in the background. On a side note, I will say the Sox fans were great. And Fenway was gorgeous.

Don't forget to read about our latest success story below. You won’t believe Dennis' progress.

Make it a great week!

"Whatever you're doing, keep it up!"

That's what the Doctor told Dennis last week.

When Dennis began with us last year he had signs of fatty liver disease. His Doctor told him they’d keep an eye on it. But diet and exercise would help reduce the condition.

Here’s what he had to tell me last week:

“Hope all is well with you. Carey is doing a great job as my current trainer. I had my annual physical last week and wanted to share some results with you. Last year my blood work showed some elevated liver enzymes. My doctor wanted to be on the safe side so I had a biopsy and the results showed a slight case of fatty liver disease. He said we should keep an eye on this and that diet and exercise would help to reduce this condition. My blood work this year showed no signs of elevated liver enzymes. All other stats on blood work are excellent. I also had a stress test and EKG which came back with excellent results. My doctor was pleased with this and also pleased that I weighed in lower than a year ago. He told me that whatever I was doing, that I should keep it up. This was part of my motivation for starting a routine with a personal trainer. This is a major victory and accomplishment and I wanted to share this with you. I feel great and want to thank you and your staff again for helping me achieve my goals.”

A job well done Dennis.

So what will the Doctor tell you at your next appointment?

Will it be, “Whatever you’re doing, keep it up!”

Or will your Doctor come closer to you, take your arm and with a very serious and concerned look speak these cautionary words… “Your weight, body fat, cholesterol and blood pressure concern me. Your quality of life will continue to diminish without adequate exercise and better nutrition. Don’t wait until it’s too late to get your body must start now!”

It’s a reality you’ll face sooner or later.

Whether you admit it to yourself or not.

Last week I sent an email about Tim Russert and his unfortunate fate. I’ve added it below for you to read.

But know this…You are NOT bulletproof. You must be doing something about your health.

Because it’s not a matter of IF, but WHEN.

Sunday Mornings Won't Be The Same

This was an email I sent the day Tim Russert passed.

It’s just past the close of the workday on Friday, and you’ve probably heard by now that Tim Russert, host of Meet the Press died today of a heart attack. Tim was 58 years old.

My Sunday mornings won’t be the same.

And I love Sunday mornings. I don’t know about you, but I take them slow. Real slow. I still like waking up early, but I really try and enjoy my morning. I’ll even go to church Sunday evenings to make my mornings longer.

Once I brew a fresh cup of Starbucks coffee, I’ll tune in to the Meet the Press. I enjoy politics and even though I don’t have cable, I try to stay up on what’s going on.

Tim was known for being a hard hitting, tough interviewer. I loved his due diligence and preparation for the show. He always had done his homework and had his arguments and challenges were ready to go. He’d pull quotes from years and years back to challenge the guests on his show. Regardless of the guest or topic I knew I would see a great interview and learn something on whatever it is they were talking about.

If you wanted to make it in the political world you’d have to go through Tim. And of all of the anchors out there, I believe he was one of the few that were truly bipartisan. He was criticized from both sides. And praised by both sides. He was always fair and worked tirelessly straight down the middle.

Tim Russert will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

But this has to make you think…

Tim was only 58 years old. To me, he looked young, vibrant and full of life. His passion truly showed through his work and book he wrote. Sure, he also looked liked he carried a few extra pounds. But did it really come to this?

It was reported he collapsed and died of a heart attack. Attempts for revival were unsuccessful. I still can’t even believe it.

So it makes you think…life is precious. Life is short. And any one of us could go tomorrow. I’m not trying to sound gruesome, but just facing the reality of it.

I just spoke with my bookkeeper whose husband went in for shoulder surgery only to find out he needed heart surgery. Stint and angioplasty. Just like that.

This is for real. Don’t think you’re bullet proof.

As a health and fitness professional I have to wonder if he was in good health. Did he have a family history of heart disease? Or was his weight, diet and exercise the contributing factors to his health?

I’ve coached hundreds of committed men and woman to lose weight, burn unwanted body fat and increase strength. In addition to those goals, every single one of them makes that commitment for the long term health benefits as well. It’s usually not top of mind unless you’ve just experienced a heart attack or some other sort of immediate risk. And seeing Tim pass so early in life should make you think. It should make you concerned.

Are you taking steps to prevent a heart attack at 38, 48, or 58 years old? Or are you living on a direct path to a future like Tim’s?

With every ounce of motivation that I can muster for you, I hope and encourage you to take the preventative path. Please look at this seriously. This is YOUR LIFE we’re talking about. 58 years old is too young.

Do you need a fitness coach to help you? No. Not necessarily. You don’t have to go to the doctor if you have a pain in your knee. But will it help? Of course.

It’s the quickest, surest way to guaranteed results possible. If you’re ready...or you think you might be, then request a complimentary consultation here. If you’re not, then request our complete infopack. Regardless, please do something now. Don’t put yourself in a position of woulda, shoulda, coulda.

To your health and success,
