Chirstin Pertel’s Week in Review 11/24-11/28

29 11 2008

Monday 11/24
YEA! New week. I wish I had a more time over the weekend that was not consumed by work (average of 21hours). The only good thing about it is (aside from the money) that I don’t think about food as much. The busier I am the easier it is. The worst thing I can do, is to be doing nothing, watching T.V., and make laps around the kitchen.
Total Calorie: 980

Tuesday 11/25
I’m house/dog sitting this week. Good times. I get extra cardio every day when I take the dogs on their walks (2, 20 min walks), and although the owners said I can help myself to whatever I wanted in the fridge and pantry, Its great that there is nothing there. The fridge is empty, and the pantry doesn’t have much of anything. The only thing that is full is the liquor and beer, But I’m not drinking, so its not even a temptation.
Total calories 1,085

Wednesday 11/26
Getting stressed. I’ve been alone in a strange house for almost three days and I’m getting a little cabin fever. I’m a very social person and having alone time is great, but this is too much for me. So what do I like to do when I’m stressed? Eat. duh. But I’ve been good, went to the store and got some fresh fruit and veggies to snack on. Also got some fixings for apple pie, I have three different places to be for Thanksgiving, so its my contribution. PS. It will take a few hours to do, so being busy will help my stress. Oh yea, my boyfriend is coming over and that will help the most.
Total Calories: 1,265

Thursday 11/27 Thanksgiving
No real comment. I was as good as I could be. I did not go for seconds, and I only ate “Thanksgiving dinner” at my sisters house. I did snack at the other two places I went, but kept it to veggies and fruit, except for our last location, I had a small slice of the apple pie I made. I never felt like I over did anything.
Total Calories: ???

Friday 11/28
Back to killing it!!! Started the day with an ass kicking, calorie burning workout. Spent the day cleaning the house that I house/dog sat for, and a long night at work. Committed to my goals!!!
Total Calories: 1,055
Total weight: l86Lbs





Aaron Guyett’s 6 Weeks to Ultimate Explosive Power, Strength, and Hot Body.

25 11 2008

This stemmed from an idea Corey Beasley had. “If we could show the clients and potential clients what can happen when someone focuses all of their efforts towards a clear goal, and make it real, maybe the people we care about will have an easier time doing the work.”

We all know there are obstacles, pitfalls, and life that happens on the way to our goals, and I will be sharing that as well. I run one of the most busy lifestyles I know. Very little sleep, a lot of social interaction, merging businesses, training clients, donation of time and money to the needy, and general help for friends. That being said, I know I have to make time to keep up with the latest and greatest on the single market. I not only want the physical edge, but the mental, emotional, and spiritual edge as well. Therefore, I work for it. Here is how it goes.

Week 1- November 16 – 22

Aaron out and ready for the 6 weeks to start!

Aaron out and ready for the 6 weeks to start!

The workout is a 6 day progression that I have never tried before. I start the week with Explosive Power (this is mostly form and nervous development), move into Pure Power (this is bio-chemical body enhancement through true physiological stress), and then I continue stress, overreaching/overtraining for a purpose through isolated muscular development. Everyday I work my full body, and the stress comes in twos. Monday and Tuesday-Explosive Power (Olympic lifts and plyometrics), Wednesday and Thursday-Purified Power (Basic Squat, Deadlifts, Bench, Pull-up, Lunges, etc.), Friday and Saturday-Isolated Antogonist (Bicep-Tricep, Quad-Ham, Back-Chest, Calves-Shoulders, Abs-Low Back/Butt) All of this is progressively overloaded.

Recovery is the most important aspect. Sleep when I can, eat as much as possible, and monitor weight and strength often.

After the week is over, I realize…I need more sleep, I need to eat more, and I should drink less coffee.

Week 2-

Posing is stupid!

Posing is stupid!

The above lighting is crappy, not a true pic.

I need more food! Sleep is way better. This week is crazy hectic! I am training 90 clients. I am training Jesse Sadoff’s clients, and Michael Foster’s clients while they are on vacation. Overall great week! I ate everything I could on Thanksgiving Day, and gained a couple of useful pounds. I haven’t been keeping up with the calorie intake, so I am weighing in at 205 solid. I am working for 210 solid and a power clean of 315 pounds. My sleep is very consistent and helping me with my soreness, which is out of control. Looking forward to killing it in business and the gym next week. Only 4 more left until the beginning of a New Year!

Week 3- November 30 – December 6
My week started with not enough eating and no working out; however on Tuesday eating went as it should (about 3000 calories), but my scheduled got a bit tweaked and the workout fell to the wayside. I really wanted that workout too! Wednesday I will kill it. Explosive start and Power finish! Picture time Wednesday as well!

Dang! Sarah ran me through a pretty good workout! I don’t think she realizes how far I can be pushed; however, I will be very sore tomorrow! Thank you, Sarah. Here is the pic. My weight is 206 and I haven’t maxed my Power clean yet. 3 more weeks!

Lighting is better, but overhead lighting makes me look huge!

Best Personal Trainer in Orange County Can Help With Your Marathon

25 11 2008

Aaron, I need your advice…I am increasing in my milage like a crazy women, but I feel good about it and I am doing great…except one thing…my long run today was 20mi =) in 3hrs, it was a great run except, my legs were giving up on me…I had enough energy to keep going but once I slowed down it was like, holy crap this freaking hurts, I will tell you though the pain was in my quads and hip flexors…is there anything I can do in my training to strengthen my legs…I feel like I am doing great runs thruout the week…maybe more sprints? or try to incorporate more strength training…if that is the case, then what can I do? I appreciate your help! Oh and the count down begins…4 weeks till the big day…26.2!!!

P.S. I hope you are doing great!

Hello!

Here is a little help from the best personal trainers in Orange County!

This has little to do with muscular strength and almost everything to do with stamina. There are three components to your stamina. The first is muscular development, the second is energy conversion, and the last is mental ability.

Let’s talk about the most important in any competition first, mental ability. Your mental ability to continue when it is painful and finish what you have started. The continue when you are in pain will come from deep within–maybe even a spiritual level. The finishing what you have started may be helped by visualizing the whole race and specifically the finish line. Keep watching yourself cross that finish line in a happy, winning state of mind.

Now for the first part, muscular development. You should now have a plethora of Type 1 muscle fibers. These red, oxygen fueled, muscle fibers are smaller and become less fatigued, while working for longer periods of time, because they are fueled by oxygen instead of your other muscle fibers which are Type 2a and b, which are non-oxygen utilizing muscle fibers. My suggestion would be to spend less time in the gym and more time on the road to create less use of your anaerobic muscles and more use of your aerobic muscle fibers. You may only spend one or two 30 min sessions in the gym, just to work speed and technique and still be able to perform huge on race day. The closer to race day the more you want to train for a race not a body-building show. ( make sense?)

The last part we will go over is your energy conversion. There are three issues here: lactate threshold, oxygen assimilation, and glucose usage (catabolism and anabolism). The lactate threshold can be trained through hill repeats until you think your legs are going to fall off and then continue to eek out a couple more, training your mind, body and spirit to adapt to the chaotic stress through its physiology, biochemistry, mental capacity and spirit. The oxygen assimilation is done through progressive overload and breathing techniques while you run and when you visualize your run (meditation). The glucose usage may be your biggest barrier, because of the distances and times you are running. Anything longer than an hour and a half is sure to bring about a catabolic state (this is where your body feeds off of its muscles, fat, and stuff because there are no glucose or glycogen reserves left). My recommendation would be to consume something with sugars, electrolytes, and water every 30 min. Something I have used in the past is Accelerade. I have also used goo, cliff bars, and powerade. One time I was hard up and cramping so I went to a corner store and put salt, sugar packets and water into my bottle and kept making it and drinking it until I was good again.

I hope this helps! 🙂

Love, Happiness, and Abundance,
Aaron Guyett

Message From The Crossing’s Time Celek Hits Home For Innovative Results

25 11 2008

He said the difference between a dangerous church that really puts the love of Christ out there and a church that just follows the norm to barely get by is this: pain, risk, and loss.

Amazing message Tim! He captured my heart spiritually and motivated me in my business.

It is the same with a person who needs to lose weight, get healthy, and look good. There are a few ways you will know you are well on your way to the body, mind, and spirit you desire. The first is PAIN.

It will take some work, as well as it will take someone with the will to overcome obstacles, challenges, and uncertainty. In other words when the pain comes, you can either endure it, fix it, or run away, but let it be known if you run away it will only be more painful the next time. Worse yet, it will hurt a lot worse when you die physically, mentally, or spiritually from not changing. After pain is dealt with, it must also be known that risk is a huge part of the change.

Risk is when you go out on a limb to try something you have never done before to get something you’ve always wanted, you’ve never had, or you are trying to earn back. For some this means a coach, trainer, program, etc, and for all it means changing a lifestyle. Now the only thing left is loss.

Not only the loss of weight, but the possibility of losing a lifestyle, some friends who really weren’t friends, or worse yet your precious desserts (insert most desired lifestyle that currently keeps you down). These seem like good things and good loss, but I have witnessed many people revert back to their old ways, allowing the weight, low self-esteem, and lack of positivity creep back into their life. This is perhaps the worse of the three ways you know you are on the right track.

Get ready for some PAIN, RISK, and LOSS, and take the next step to get what you have always desired.

Thank you Tim and The Crossing for placing fruit in my life

I just read your blog about success….
loooooved it!

I am a BIG believer that if you can dream, vision it….anything is possible! Great Job on achieving your vision!!

Anywhooo….Aaron…I need some advice, man….

I attend a gym right now and CAN NOT seem to get rid of the last 15 lbs I have been dying to get rid of.

I think I have plateaued. AND, have gotten discouraged about
After we got back from a two week vacation/no sleep(We stopped in Idaho!I hadnt been back in 10 years!!)
I was exhausted from the trip and needed to get our daughter and me used to her new Kindergarten schedule….Now,it has been at least two weeks since I have been in the gym AND lets not forget the 2 weeks of vacation….for a grand total of 4 WEEKS that I have not been to the gym…..which is crazy for me. I love the way it makes me feel. Now that everyone is good with the new schedule I will drop off Van at school and head to the gym….

What can I do to get over that plateau?
I LOVE high impact and enjoy pushing myself…But what am I doing wrong that I cant lose that extra weight??
Any advice, Aaron!?

xoxo

I will give you my top three pieces of advice…http://www.myproresults.com/PTNC.html

1. forget about the 15 lbs.
Do you look good? Do you feel good? Are you healthy? These are important. Some symbols on a scale should never control you thoughts.
2. Discipline
Four weeks is a long time…not to worry though, you will adapt and overcome, because of your attitude. Stay positive about it, and don’t ever say I can’t lose the 15lbs again (you actually had CAN NOT in caps above). Think, “I have just been given the opportunity to lose some bodyfat,” making you an even more efficient and even hotter human being! 🙂
3. Recovery with fuel
Is your eating going with or against your work in the gym. Are you eating 4-6 meals per day that do not exceed the amount of calories you burn every day? Are you eating the foods that will give you maximum efficiency or are they foods that only give immediate “feel good” reactions? Is your sleep and water intake in amounts that create a healthy environment for your fitness to make the impact you are desiring? If not, analyze, improve, and control.

I really hope this helps. If you need more help, I could help you find a professional in your area. 🙂 Look forward to Innovative Results online training and nutrition site. You can also check out sparkpeople.com while you wait for our site to be developed.





Christin Pertel’s Story

25 11 2008

OC Trainer in Training

Hi,
my name is Christin Pertle I’m 27 years old and I have lost 70 pounds, and for years I have struggled with being comfortable in my own skin, not really knowing where I belong. I’ve yo-yoed my weight; I’ve been the center of attention, and the fat friend. Too long have I sat back because I didn’t think I was good enough, or pretty enough, and now I want to go up to the mountain top a declare that I am here, worship me.
How do I start??? It’s amazing to me that all my life I’ve been fighting my weight and now I finally feel like my outsides are matching my insides. I look back to my school years, how I was always made fun in elementary and Jr. High, that’s were they called me “Free Willy”. People that didn’t even know me would come up and say it. I never understood. I wasn’t the biggest girl, I wasn’t mean to anyone, just an easy target I guess. Since I was a kid I was involved in sports like soccer, and softball, I danced, did colorguard and theater, but I loved food just a little too much. I always had extra weight on me. My mom always tried to get me to eat less and lose weight, but I wasn’t motivated enough. When I got to high school I still was getting made fun of, but I didn’t care, I was on a world class colorguard and was accepted because I was great at it. But I got pressure to lose weight, so I started Phen-Fen my freshmen year and lost 30 pounds, but summer came and I gained some of it back. So I tried it again, and Atkins, and herbalife, and Lindora. With Lindora my junior year I lost 35 pounds and weight 165Lbs, and I was able to hold that through my senior year. I was POPULAR. Everyone knew me, everyone loved me, I was voted most inspirational, I was 5’9.5″, 165lbs with a dancer’s body but I STILL thought I was too big. I look at pictures from that time and I was gorgeous, sexy even, and it saddens me that I couldn’t be happy with my body. After I graduated I got a job at Disney, but I wasn’t dancing, I wasn’t working out, but you bet your ass I was eating like I was. You name it I ate it, and I gained till I was 250 pounds. It sucked, I had a personality that could light a room, the coy sex drive of a throbbing mattress kitten, but the body of a tele-tubby a well proportioned tele-tubby but still a tele-tubby so I started Kaiser’s liquid diet, going to the gym, and performing theater in college. IT SUCKED. I can barely describe how horrific a liquid diet is. At work I would go up to my friends at lunch and ask to smell their food. Sad. The only good thing is I lost 45Lbs, fast. But sadly with in 2 years I gained it all back and more. I went all the way up to 265Lbs (Lets here it for the yo-yo). When I ripped a pair of pajama pants and I knew I had hit rock bottom. So this time I did it, and did it right. For the last two years I have been going to Innovative Results with a personal trainer named Aaron whom I love (at first twice a week and building up to five). I did Lindora for the first eight months, then ate right on my own (most of the time), and after I lost 70Lbs I got a tummy tuck on January 16, 2007 because of all the extra skin I had. After I healed I went back to the gym and have been going five days a weed and loving it… well as much as you can love an ex-marine working you out. It’s now been a little more than a since my surgery, I’m just 22 pounds away from my goal weight, and I’m SO happy, I’m stronger than ever, looking better than ever, and I’m learning to love my new body. And with my new found love of working out I’ve found my new inspiration to become a personal trainer myself. I can’t wait to inspire people to become a better “you”.

I couldn’t have done it though without some very special people in my life. My best friends Heather, Melissa, and Jeff, who saw me lose and gain more than 200Lbs over the years, and supported me no matter what. Friends who let me cry on their shoulders, yell and scream about every thing (because you know a girl on a diet gets a little bitchy), and still wanted to be my friend. My trainer Aaron, who without his special brand of motivation and love, I would of quit a long time ago. And my most of all, my boyfriend Scott. Before him I never thought that I could have someone that I didn’t have to hid my insecurities from, or lower my standers for. Through the last three years I have learned how great he and life can really be. I know now that he loves ME… ME, not just my body. He loves my mind, my personality, my strength, and it doesn’t matter what size I am, I know he loves me no matter what I look like.
