Results Training Gym Success Story!

Results the Training Gym client Hans Maurits Jr.

Results the Training Gym client Hans Maurits Jr.

At Results the Training Gym, our goal is to be much more then a gym. Our goal isn’t to put you through the motions…it is to CHANGE LIVES!

It has been so exciting to be part of so many transformations and changes over the years…and now, after a few months in operation in West Sacramento we are excited to share with you some new successes from clients just like you.

If you have ever come in to train with our O DARK 30 team (at 5:30 am , every week day) you will know this guy. His name is Hans Maurits and his momma and friends call him Jr.

Hans is a friend of mine, we have worked together in our corporate day job for years. In fact, I taught him everything he knows (which is not saying a lot). For a long time Hans talked about getting started on a program with us at Results the 24 Hour Gym, but the location wasn’t right for him. As we were in the process of putting the finishing touches on the the gym, Hans made a commitment to get started. In fact, he was the first client who ever trained in the gym, along with me personally. It was a real rough start for Hans, because he received 100% of my personal Coach Matt Love until a few other folks started to join in the fun. One time on a run, I lost Hans and thought he had an asthma attack. I went running around the neighborhood looking for him with his inhaler. Turns out he was in the bathroom (he probablly won’t admit to throwing up, but I am pretty sure that is what he was doing). Hans was pretty out of shape, but determined. He came every single day, 3-4 days a week. Once we opened for business officially, he started coming 5 and even 6 times a week.

So, here we are on August 1st and Hans, the first official member of Results the Training Gym has hit a few huge milestones. First, he has become the FASTEST to 100. Hans has completed 100 training sessions in less time then anyone previously, from April – July he trained over 100 times!   Second, Hans is saving a lot more $$ then he is spending with us…he dropped his prescription, savings a ton of money and living healthier.   He did not just drop the perscription medicine, he has shed over 30lbs of body fat and 22lbs off the scale...and he isn’t done yet.

So you know that I will continue to push Hans harder then I push anyone else and the other Coaches and Clients are all welcome to do the same.  You know that I will continue to call him out , call him names and embarrass him and even humiliate him at times. I only do that because that is what we do to each other and we have know each other along time (plus he is starting to out run me…what the heck?!).   While all that goes on, deep down on the inside I am real proud of this guy.  He is proof that someone who isn’t that smart, kind of lazy and hard to take serious can unleash his inner warrior.     Just think, a 43 year old office working grandpa came in and became the first and fastest person to train 100 sessions plus shed a whole bunch of body fat!

In all seriousness, Hans is determined and committed to get in the best shape of his life. What is most impressive about these Results is Hans just recently started changing his eating habits and now has more impressive strength and weight loss coming!   I think you will see his determination when you come in and train with us at O Dark 30, but check out these impressive TRANSFORMATION RESULTS below. Phase 1 down, keep your eyes out for the next picture in 60 days!

Please congratulate Hans win you see him (or trash talk him, that is perfectly fine too).

Ann Spade Bio

Even though I always loved being physically active I never really had a regimented routine growing up. I took up gymnastics for 4 years when I was younger, but that was the only sport I ever participated in. Fast forward to when my son was born. I was 135 lbs before I was pregnant and when he was born I was 192 lbs. I lost a bit of it afterwards but still maintained a size 12 in pants. I never really worried about my weight until one day my size 12 jeans were too small. I refused to purchase a bigger size so that’s when my fitness journey truly began. Thanks to taking a more active role in educating myself about fitness, I had a new found discipline and enthusiasm for exercise and eating right! I incorporated strength training, cardio, and eating portioned, cleaner meals at least 5 times a day and even allowed myself a free day to indulge. This philosophy worked. I gained lean muscle, I was toned and defined, and my endurance and stamina was the best it had been since gymnastics! I spent time learning more and more from my own research and talking with fitness competitors and fellow fitness enthusiasts. I even had my own gym membership and used it often. With a few of life’s transitions I since fell out of my fitness routines and had my own bouts of weight gain and loss in the following years. I did what I could on my own by running, staying active, and working out at home. In 2012 I was introduced to the R.I.P.P.E.D. fitness program and became certified. I was at a stable size 9 until after teaching a couple months of R.I.P.P.E.D. I am now down to a size 4 and regained lean muscle that I slowly lost. Now teaching several R.I.P.P.E.D. and botcamp sessions  a week and working with a team of coaches at Results the positive fitness influence is being trickle fed to me, my knowledge of nutrition, health, and fitness continues to expand and my foundation for fitness is stronger.

Matt’s footnotes:  Ann is kind of modest, but she just rocked two Tough Mudder events in the last 4 months….no small feat!    When Ann isn’t coaching clients at Results you can catch her with the KQCA My 58 Team at local events like Concerts in the Parks and other local fun events.    Ann is kind of a big deal on YOU TUBE too, you can check out her and her friend Candy and a great R.I.P.P.E.D video here

Ann is excited to be making her Zumba debut along with her friend Marrisa Hodge on August 16th at Fitness After Dark.  We will feature a night club atmosphere with DJ, a killer light show and R.I.P.P.E.D. and Zumba Fitness that will get your heart racing!     Say hello to Ann at Results the Training Gym every Thursday and for our special Fitness After Dark on Friday August 16th.

Meet Coach Allison Schaefer

Coach Allison Schaefer Biography

Allie began her path in the fitness industry after venturing into the corporate world and disliking the many hours of being anchored to a desk.  To ease the stress, lack of activity, weight gain, and fatigue, she joined Results the 24 Hour Gym as a hopeful client.  With help from Bootcamps and her personal trainer, she saw a tremendous improvement in her overall quality of life and daily attitude.  The power and vitality of a healthy body soon became her obsession as she overcame new goals and found strength she never knew she possessed.  Now after much anticipation, she is eager to be on the other side of the equation and become “Coach Allie.”    

 

After exactly one year of training with Results Training and hundreds of hours in her internship, Coach Allie is ready to rock and help more people meet their health and fitness goals.

Coach Allie Before and After

Coach Allie Before and After

 

Trust me, I’ve been there.

Happy Monday from Coach Damian and the rest of us at Results the Training Gym.

I hope everyone had a great July 4th Holiday fully recharged and focused on your goals for the 2nd half of 2013.  I know it is not easy to maintain the focus, especially around family, friends and co-workers…but you are worth it.

Trust me, I’ve been there.

 

RE: ‘My kid’s leftover birthday cake is in the break room.  ATTN: Cookies from our bbq by the front counter.  FYI: Chips and dip from the football party in the projection room.’  These are literally a few emails I’ve experienced while working in the corporate world.  Let’s face it, people aren’t as passionate about their health and fitness as YOU are.  As selfish as it sounds sometimes you’ve got to look out for number one.  The workplace is teaming with mini landmines to sabotage the success’s we’ve accomplished. 

 

What are some ways we can avoid some of these day to day pitfalls while in the workplace?

 

1)    Keep Hydrated  All to often we mistake thirst for hunger, especially when the mid-afternoon cravings hit. Staying hydrated  keeps your stomach from becoming completely empty, which keeps hunger levels down.

 

Drinking a glass of water before a meal can also help to fill your stomach temporarily,   making it easier to manage your portion sizes when you actually sit down to eat.

 

2)    Have your own ‘healthy snack drawer’ at work.  I’m not kidding when I say that I had an arsenal of healthy mixed nuts, protein powder baggies and more protein bars than you could shake a stick at.  Miss a lunch, or get bombarded by the red velvet cupcakes you can then reach into your trusty drawer with an alternative.

 

 

 

3)    Stick to Natural fruits and Vegetables because they are comprised primarily of water.  Try these examples:

 

 

Watermelon contains 92 percent water, 8 percent natural sugar, and essential electrolytes such as, calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium. Watermelon is rich in Vitamin C, beta carotene and lycopene which will give the body protection from UV light.

 

Grapefruit contains only 30 calories and is comprised of 90 percent water. Phytonutrients called limonoids, found in grapefruits, can be detoxifying and may inhibit tumor formation of cancers.

 

Coconut water is comprised of 95 percent water. It is one of the most popular ways to hydrate the moderate intensity athlete.

 

Broccoli contains 90 percent water and many health supporting compounds which are anti-inflammatory, others protect DNA with their antioxidant capacity, anti-cancer nutrients are found in broccoli and those that help to detoxify the vast number of potential toxins that we encounter each day.

 

Cantaloupe which provides 29 calories and is made up of 89 percent water is an exceptionally good fruit for supporting energy production through its efficient carbohydrate metabolism and ability to keep the blood sugar stable.

 

Celery is considered to be a powerful electrolyte food. As little as two to three mineral-rich stalks of celery can replenish an athlete’s sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iron and zinc levels after intense exercise.

 

 

4)    Finally get good at saying “No thank you”. Every decision you make, from here on out, should be determined with your main goals in mind.  EVERY weekend, a friend is coming into town. Someone will ALWAYS be having a birthday.  Vegas ISN’T going anywhere anytime soon.

 

These are your goals.  Embrace them and take your results to the next level.  I look forward to seeing you in the next workout.

 

Damian

P.S.  Speaking of goals, if you know someone we can help remind them about our 3 weeks for $47 program!     They get to enjoy you for Classes and Team Training for 3 weeks for $47 (with a money back guarantee) plus you get entered to win an iPad Mini….what could be better?

 

Meet Coach Damian

Passion – a strong liking or desire for or devotion to some activity, object, or concept.

Examples of PASSION

  1. Everyone could see the passion in his approach to the work.
  2. His performance is full of passion and originality.
  3. She spoke with passion about preserving the building.
  4. Music has always been his passion.
  5. She developed a passion for opera.

Do you find yourself occasionally thinking about that word?  Passion.  What do you have a passion for?  I was asking myself this wearing a suit and tie in the corporate world.  Early to rise and first into the office with my bowl of quinoa and bananas and honey I lead the charge in the corporate world.  Health and fitness questions would routinely hit my email, or a coworker would venture back over to my desk with a question.  Is this healthy?  Can you give me another exercise for my arms I’m getting bored of my routine?  Could you write me up a new workout?  You can take a personal trainer out of the gym…but not the trainer out of the personal trainer.

Exercise has and always will be a love for me…but my passion lies in training and helping others.  Not too many jobs allow you to instantly have an impact on someone’s day.  Let’s take that statement a step further.  Not too many jobs allow you to have an impact on someone’s life.  A trainer has the ability to guide a person through life’s toughest journeys, the battle with themselves.  Through this journey we have the ability to help infuse them with confidence and a new outlook on life.  When a person has succeeded, even for a few months with a trainer, life’s harder challenges actually become easier. ‘If I can survive a burpee and drop a pant/dress size…the next speed bump life sends my way shouldn’t be as hard.’

So I journeyed away from the corporate life and back to my new home Results the Training Gym.  (I had worked with Pete and Matt as part of Results the 24 Hour Gym in the past, so it was an easy decision to come back and get this fantastic new facility off the ground here in West Sacramento).

Some people ask me if I miss the corporate world and here’s my answer “I’ve been given an opportunity to make a difference in a group of lives over in West Sacramento, and I wouldn’t trade that for the world.  And let’s face it; I’ll trade lacing up my workout shoes over tying a tie any day.”

So here I am West Sacramento, a tool to use for your success in health and fitness.   A resource to tap when you feel like your back is up against the door.  A helping hand to get you to that next level.  If you haven’t had a chance to meet me yet, come say hello.  Sign up for one of the many sessions I’ll be running over the course of the week.  I want you to accomplish your goals and more.

Here’s to squeezing out one more burpee.

Yours in health.

Survival of the Fittest

– As a Coach at Results I am ever searching for ways to enhance the experience of each member and  continue to excite passion for health and fitness.  Please enjoy receiving weekly emails on various health, wellness, and fitness performance related topics.  May this correspondence continue to serve as an outlet for education and a resource opportunity for all those involved past, present and future. 
  Survival of the fittest.  What does it mean to be fit… might depend on who you ask and in what context.  Fitness can be defined through search engine as a state or condition of being fit, suitable, or appropriateness; or the quality of being suitable for a particular role/task.  Physiologically it can refer to the body’s ability to deliver oxygen to muscle tissue during a given exertion.  Biological fitness would infer a contribution to a gene pool, or perpetuation through successful reproduction.  All these things I wish for you- if fitness is something you truly desire.  Physical fitness can be objectively measured and assessed, as well as subjectively perceived.  My personal consideration of what it means to be physically fit is to be able at any moment, given any task, to own the confidence, skill and know how to approach and experience every life given challenge or opportunity.  To live free from domains of fears and uncertainty of how our body will perform, and how the mind will conduct is truly empowering.  All that we do with the tools, templates, timers, and tempos are practice and prepare for those experiences that will present themselves unexpectedly to us some day.  This week coach Jasynte shares more on those details of fitness adaptations.  How do you define and perceive fitness?

What is fitness?

Often times I hear a lot of people talk about fitness and totally missing the point. I hear a lot of “I do yoga for my fitness” or “I run”. Fitness is more then just running, jumping, working out (whatever that might include) or diet. Fitness, I believe, is more about physiological adaptation.  What the heck is that?

That’s a great question. There are two areas of adaptation. I recently heard a pioneer in the fitness industry talk about adaptation in terms of software design. Think about the difference between hardware design and software design. So adaptation then would mean positive (or negative) adaptation in the tissues (hardware) and/or the brain/neurological system (software).

What does this mean? The body has to adapt both in the way it processes information, generates commands and communicates to the hardware or tissue, and in the way the tissue is designed and works. To do this we must then look at fitness as a physiological process in which we challenge our movement and neurological systems in a manner that creates a constant environment of variability (to which the system has to adapt), intensity in relationship to load and volume, and movements that support humane functionality within the surrounding environment.

So fitness is a collection of activities that create an environment that promotes physiological adaptation. This is much more than just running, lifting a few weights or stretching. Fitness requires multiple activities that together challenge and promoting

Cardiovascular respiratory endurance

Stamina

Strength

Flexibility

Power

Speed

Coordination

Agility

Balance

Accuracy

Be the best you can be, adapt to any situation, be strong, stay safe and enjoy the harmony of balance! Be dynamic in everything you do, chase your weaknesses, and challenge your body completely. Workout intensely, lift heavily, and allow for a wide variety of activities.

-If you are still seeking the drive, the direction, or in need of an outlet to substantiate your vitality, consult with your next sighted Results coach.  Plan for your path to achievement.  Remain faithful to said purpose with every action, every movement, every choice, and with each decision- stand firm.  Take that found passion and now share this insight and lifestyle to include the lives of those you spend most time with. 
Your Coach In Health, Keali’i
P! S!  Mark your calendars folks for next Saturday, June 8th at 10 am.  COACH YOUR COACH!  This will be only the second such occurrence within Results… the moment you have all been enduring for day in and day out.  We are proud to be hosting a benefit event for the communities affected by the recent Oklahoma tornado.  Results will be auctioning off the chance of a lifetime for you to put your coaches through the tests of fitness you all so regularly experience.  We are welcoming a minimum donation of $10 for 10 minutes of coaching your coach through what fitness challenges you yourself have once been put through.  The only rule is that any given task must come from what movements you have seen within our coaching program (i.e. no searching the internet for most insane puke test known to coaching kind – you must have gone through it yourself or seen someone in the gym coached through it).  Please respond for all interest and inquiries.  Your finalized design plan for coaching and instruction must be submitted by Friday June 9th.  Remember this is COACH your coach, not beat down senselessly.  Include movement patterns, workloads, rest periods, etc.  If you need ideas or help come talk to a coach.  Your benevolence is appreciated and valued in advanced.  All coaches have one request for you guys, “BRING IT!”

Foam Roll Like a Pro

It is important that everyone we know in West Sacramento, even if you do not workout at Results the Training Gym, learn the importance of good recovery including stretching and self myofascial release. This chart is not designed to be an end all be all around the subject but is a great printable visual for you to use. Where can you purchase a foam roller? Sports Authority, Target and Big 5 are just some of the options. From time to time we will sell them at the front desk in the gym. Everyone needs to own one of these handy dense foam rollers.

We will be holding 3 workshops on foam rolling / self myofascial release in June. The workshops will be held inside of Results the Training Gym at 109 15th Street in West Sacramento, we look forward to teaching you even more on the subject soon
