Run in with past client!!!

I was just finishing up with a client last Friday at the Sandy office...when I went to the front desk, lo and behold it was Travis...a client I hadn't seen for awhile buying supplements. Anyway since he was at the office, and I had 2 minutes I asked him if he wanted his measurements taken. It has been over 2 years since the above after picture was taken. Travis' weight on Friday was 167 and his body fat was 10%. He had essentially maintained his results. But the cool thing was he just finished his first half-marathon in Moab the week previous...this is coming from a guy whose doctor told him before he started the THF program that he would never run again. Travis is training for his first full marathon this summer. Way to go Trav, and way to maintain your results. Next time I am going to have to fandangle you into taking another after, after picture!

Spot Reduction! What is it?

The question often arises with clients about losing fat in a specific part of their body. They want to know if they do crunches will they lose belly fat? The answer is maybe but unlikely. You see spot reduction is not real. Working certain muscles will not burn fat around those muscles. Your body burns fat where it is going to burn fat...meaning genetics will determine where on your body you burn the fat from. We know however that large muscle groups like your legs, chest, and back will burn a ton of overall calories which in turn means burning fat. This is why it is important to use large muscle groups in a fat loss program. Working small individual muscles is fine, but you need to make sure your foundation to your weight training is the large muscle groups!
