One of the questions I’m asked quite often here at WorkoutBOX is whether or not our programs are specific to women. It’s a valid question, and one that in my opinion is brought to light thanks mostly to marketing.
So what’s the story? Should programs be designed for a certain gender, or is this simply yet another myth we need to bust?
The answer may surprise you…

This is one of those blog entries that answers some of the most common questions we’re asked here at WorkoutBOX.
When starting a gym-based workout program, all those weights can look pretty intimidating. Don’t worry – this is natural, and should pass when you get some answers.

It’s among the top five questions I am repeatedly asked by clients. If I had a nickel for every time I heard it I’d be writing this blog while chillaxin’ in my private jet, piloted by John Travolta himself, on my way to a weekend shopping extravaganza in Milan.
“How can I lose my belly?” “What can I do to get rid of my spare tire?” “What lower ab exercises will shrink my gut?” I know my answer never makes me popular but it’s the only honest one I can offer. You simply cannot spot reduce! In order to get rid of the flab on your midsection, you must follow a balanced, consistent and intelligent program of proper nutrition, calorie control and EXERCISE! I see you rolling your eyes and before you ask….there are no magic ‘muffin top’ pills, no fancy ab roller gadgets and no ‘break through metabolism stimulating, hormone regulating, fat melting, super power foods’ that are going to do it effortlessly for you. Enjoying the luxury of a flat midsection is earned through regular cardiovascular and strength training workouts coupled with a diet rich in nutrients designed to meet and not exceed daily caloric requirements. Bottom line.Read the rest of this entry »

If you flip through the pages of any tabloid magazine, it becomes shockingly clear by the emaciated frames in the photos that celebrity diets are often less than healthy. The majority of so called celebrity diets are usually nothing more than glorified crash diets, promising dramatic, albeit unrealistic results.
It can be quite tempting to try these well marketed weight loss and fitness routines as every one of us wants to shed fat as quickly as possible. Fad diets often offer near impossible, yet very appealing promises. They may claim to provide you with Victoria Beckham’s waistline or Angelina Jolie’s slender physique in 2 short weeks but usually don’t deliver.Read the rest of this entry »

Of course we know that committing to a well designed exercise routine plays a huge role in how effective our weight loss program is. The best weight loss programs generally recommend a combination of cardiovascular (see cardio exercises) and resistance training (see weight lifting exercises) at a minimum of 3 to 4 sessions a week.
I am often asked what time of the day is the best time to workout. That entirely depends upon the individual. In order to reap optimal benefits from your weight loss exercise routine, you’ll need to schedule your workout for a particular time of the day when you know you will be feeling wide awake, energized and ready to focus entirely on the workout without interruption.Read the rest of this entry »

An effective weight loss routine relies on a number of factors. An overall reduction in calories and a commitment to regular exercise are often the two main priorities of most weight loss plans. While obviously these are crucial factors, there are other somewhat surprising components that contribute to the success of a healthy weight loss program.
Perhaps just as helpful in fat reduction is the quality and quantity of the sleep we allow ourselves. Even the best of the best weight loss programs will stall or perhaps fail if we don’t get adequate, restful sleep.Read the rest of this entry »
