Circuit Training in Atlanta with Grounded Personal Training

Small circuit training routine used to finish off today's workout.

It was a beautiful day today here in Atlanta so I decide to my personal training client outside to finish off her workout.

This is my first attempt at video so take it easy on me. Not sure what happened to the sound, was fine on my computer but after it was uploaded it fell apart, oh well

Never Give Up

Those who keep going

Many of us fail or have setbacks, that is all part of life. What we do with those challenges, rejections and setbacks determine where we go in life. When you decide to change an aspect of your life, such as your appearance, job, or look to improve yourself to some extent you have to expect problems along the way.

Weight loss is a difficult process with plenty of opportunity to fail and give up. The key is to learn from your mistakes and move forward. Take a look at the famous people in the clip who have been told that they can not but have succeed anyway.

To Lose Fat and Build the Body You Want, Follow the Path of MOST Resistance

To lose Weight and Burn Fat weight training is the fast track to sculpting your body.

Resistance is NOT futile! When it comes to body transformations, weight loss and building a great body quickly and permanently, weight training may be your best choice. That is why we include weight training in all our bootcamps.

The shape of your body is determined by three things:

  1. muscle
  2. bone
  3. fat
Your bone structure is set, outside an operation there is not much you can do to change it. You do have control over your body composition. You can change your muscle and fat ratios to get a better body.

Weight training may be the fastest way to change your body composition. You may ask why it is so effective. Without getting too detailed, it builds muscle and burns calories and fat.

One of the greatest things about muscle is that it burns calories all day long, even when you're lying on the couch. What this means is that the more muscle you have, the more calories you'll burn during the day and the more you'll be able to eat without gaining weight. Sound interesting? There's more.

Weight training stimulates your metabolism more than aerobic training such as cycling or walking. This means that you'll continue to burn calories long AFTER you've completed your weight training session. The calorie-burning effect of aerobic training generally declines rapidly once you stop the exercise.

Beginning trainers, who are just starting with exercise, are often under the impression that they should stay away from weight training because they might gain weight before they start losing it.

I like to use a car as an analogy. Imagine your body is a car, your muscles are the cylinders in the engine, and your bodyfat is the gas.

With a four-cylinder car, you only burn a minimum amount of gas/fat. Weight training and building more muscle is the equivalent of putting more cylinders into your engine. As you can imagine, you'll burn a whole lot more gas even while idling! And, just like a car with more cylinders, you'll be a lot more powerful too!

The bottom line to you is this...with more muscle, you'll get greater fat loss with less effort.

While it certainly is a possibility that you could gain weight before losing it, if you gauge your success solely by numbers on a scale then you're not getting an accurate picture of yourself. Measure your progress by how you feel, how you look and how well your clothes are fitting, not by which direction the needle on a measuring device is moving.

Do not eliminate cardiovascular training from your exercise routine, but, if you are struggling to lose fat and keep it off, weight training may be just the thing you need to lose that fat and keep it off for good.
