Be Ready to Slay Your Next Fit Body Workout!

You just finish your last set of burpees. A wave of confidence overtakes you as you think about what you just accomplished…

“I SLAYED that workout! My body feels powerful and fit!”

You can almost feel the fat melt in your core. Your midsection starts to sizzle as the lines of your new six-pack begin to take shape.

Most men and women that work out dream of that moment…and Fit Body Boot Camp workouts deliver the results that will make you feel on fire!

Before you dominate your next Fit Body sesh, you need to solidify your pre-exercise routine. Every world-class fitness trainer will tell you that preparation is the key to a good workout.

Think of it as the stuff you put into your car. If you fill your car’s tank with soda and window cleaner, you probably won’t even be able to drive out of the parking lot. But if you fill it with high-quality gas, you’ll zip past traffic and get to where you need to get to in no time.

If you prep your body and mind before you work out, boot camp will be that much effective (and easier) for you. Now, how to do that…

Why Exercise in the Morning?

What a weekend!

Daylight savings came and went, and it blessed us all with an extra hour of sleep. Hopefully you caught up on some much needed rest!

You might notice that the mornings are sunnier and brighter. Maybe it’s even easier for you to wake up and start your day off early.

So after you stretch those arms to the heavens and hop out of bed, why not go for a quick morning workout?

Morning exercise is amazing for the mind, body, and soul. I get it though: you might still be of the opinion that sleep is what really matters most.

Let me convince you that it really is worth it to set your alarm clock a couple minutes (or even hours) ahead!

A Little Fit Motivation From Coach Melissa…

Coach Melissa here, the motivational coach you never knew you needed!

I’ve hijacked the Fit Body Boot Camp blog because I figured I could offer some inspiration to a few of you future boot campers out there…

See, I used to be overweight. I was far from fit. My self-esteem was at an all-time low. It hurt to look at myself in the mirror. I felt lost and hopeless.

Then I saw a Fit Body Boot Camp ad online one day. What did I have to lose? I decided to check it out…

The rest is history. I fell in love with their quick HIIT style workouts and lost a bunch of weight in the first few months. I even learned how to keep that weight off for the long haul…

So what did the trick for me?

Once I got on top of my mentality, I was able to conquer fitness every single day. Mentality is the biggest part of working out. You can’t get down on yourself!

Let’s talk through some of the most common objections and excuses people make when fitness gets the better of them. Trust me, the power of perspective can turn these doubts into opportunities for you.

A Beginner’s Guide to Fit Body’s Workout Equipment

That moment.

That moment when you walk into a gym. You survey the room and see a bunch of machines that look like robots; a rack of weights that looks intimidating; and bands, balls, and ropes that look like they don’t even belong inside a gym…

The more you look around the room, the less it looks like the place to get fit and the more it looks like a sweaty spaceship.

Today’s blog will answer one question for you: how do I use that darn workout equipment?

While our workouts require different pieces of equipment, we try not to pack our gyms with any hard-to-use products, machines, or treadmills.

Here’s how to use some core pieces of workout equipment you’ll find at your local FBBC.

How to Crush the Hardest Part of Your Workout

“Just one more! You can do it!”

“Don’t give in! You’re almost there!”

Why do trainers love saying stuff like this to their clients? Do they know something that we don’t?

They actually do know one thing about fitness that flies over nearly everyone else’s heads…

Fitness is as much mental as it is physical.

When you overcome that nagging voice in your head that swears you can’t do it, that right there is the best feeling ever.

If you’ve ever seen the movie Rocky, you might remember that he would end his runs by running up a bunch of steps, get to the top, stare out at the cityscape, and hold his arms up like the champ he was.

That can be YOU, I promise. You just have to push past those moments when your body wants to stop. Trust me: you’ll see more growth in yourself than ever before.

I want you to feel like Rocky after every one of your workouts. Here’s how to do it…
