JAN 29: Get Pfit – No Trainer Needed

trainer yellingOf COURSE, having a trainer can help people reach their goals, (that’s what I do! So obviously I know our value) but why and how do they help? Is it their knowledge? Sure, knowledge is helpful, but there is endless information online that can give you the same information. Is it their equipment? Sure, equipment can definitely help, but it’s not completely necessary. There’s a ton of amazing bodyweight workouts you can do on your living room floor without owning one dumbbell.

Maybe it’s how they push you and don’t let you rest or text between sets. Well, you can get the GymBoss Interval timer and let time boss you around and push you to stick to a time schedule. Could the most powerful and most valuable benefit to personal training be how a trainer motivates you and holds you accountable? YES, I think so, but you don’t have to be a certified personal trainer to encourage someone or hold someone accountable.

Steve and Tasha, from A&E’s Fit To Fat To Fit, actually bring this point to life in their latest interview where they talk about that horrible first workout on the beach. Steve shares how much Tasha helped push him, but Tasha wasn’t his trainer. Tasha was the client, yet her encouragement pushed Steve to not give up.

Hope for The Trainerless

friends sit upsI want to encourage you. Don’t you think for one minute that you are doomed because you weren’t lucky enough to get cast for a reality show, or you can’t afford to hire a trainer. You can get the results you want with just one person who is willing to meet you at the gym, one person online that will ask you how your workout was or one person who will share low-cal recipes with you.

This accountability partner doesn’t have to be a pro, they don’t even have to have experience. They just have to be there for you – even if it’s a total stranger halfway across the world who commits to meeting with you online (like our LiveExercise peeps). It’s a WIN-WIN. As much as you need someone, they need you too – just like Steve and Tasha. Their relationship may have started as a client/trainer relationship, but it didn’t take long to realize they were not much different than workout partners, just being there for each other every step of the way.

Get on facebook, instagram, twitter or email and ask your friends and family who wants accountability – and see what happens. I bet you end up with a bigger circle of support than you even think!!

No Equipment At-Home Workout

This is one of the workouts Tasha did this week called TEN-FOUR. Set your timer and see how fast you can get this workout done. The timer is your trainer. Steve is your coach – and we are your workout partners. Comment below and let us know how you did!! It should take 10-15minutes if you are fit, 15-20 minutes if you are just getting started and 20+ minutes if you are over 100lbs overweight (but don’t worry! Do what you can. If you have to stop, just write down how many rounds you got in within the time you allotted).

TEN-FOUR:
Tools:
 floor mat (or cushy carpet lol)
Mission: 
10 rounds of the following 4 exercises for time

10 Jax
10 Burpees
10 Push-ups
10 Sit-ups
Record time after 10 rounds.

Not sure what to eat or how to lose weight? Get my Get Pfit workbook (same workbook our boot campers read  – and what Tasha followed to help her success).

 

JAN 28: Run And Not Be Weary

tiredAs you set out to tackle weight loss, one thing I can guarantee is you will run and be weary. Running and weary go hand in hand. It’s like mud and dirty. You can’t play in the mud without getting dirty and you can run without getting weary – BUT. There’s a big BUT here. You can run and not be weary to the point of quitting.

Personally, when I read the verse, “they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint” I never think for a minute that I will never get tired of trying to live right. I fully expect to fail nearly every day. I fully expect to even get pouty and mad at times because life isn’t fair or I’m not improving fast enough. However, the renewal of strength and the ability to not truly grow weary is a result of the beginning of the verse? Yes, there’s a stipulation. “Those who wait”.

waitingYUCK! No one likes to wait. However, that is what is required to get the rest of the promise. “Those who wait on the Lord renew their strength”. How could we learn from this passage and how could it relate to weight loss? Well, personally for me, when I commit to waiting on the Lord, it gives me time to reflect on what He’s done in my life (read our marriage make-over). It also gives me time to think about what my goal really is (to be in His will). And, you know what? In just a brief amount of time, I get past my pity party and seem to have a second wind of sorts. The same goes for fitness.

Let me suggest to you that maybe the reason you have quit before is because you weren’t patient enough to do the waiting part. You weren’t patient enough to reflect, to remember why you started and to refocus. So often we quit in the moment. We let our emotions determine our actions instead of staying the course no matter what our emotions tell us. Or, maybe we did it once before but we got SO far off track we feel it’s impossible to ever get back to where we were. Let me tell you what. If God can restore the love in a loveless marriage (like he did ours), I think He can help you get rid of some silly body fat! You still have to do the work (like we did in our marriage) but patience is required – and in that time of obedience and waiting, He can work His magic!

Wait Loss

Weight loss success depends on a LOT of patience, and it will include a lot of waiting. However, I have faith in the science of weight loss as much as I have faith in the Lord. I trust it and I know the reward will be worth the wait.

FTF_FL-ST_02272015_Prd_0401Tasha and Steve had to do a LOT of waiting. Even while on the fast track to weight loss, it still required a lot of patience. Remember, Tasha started this whole journey over 100 pounds heavier. She not only had to wait to be chosen, but she waited for the show to start filming – and then had to wait to even start her training with Steve. And, finally, THEN she had to wait for the results. Wait. Wait. Wait.

Some weeks Steve and Tasha lost zero weight and they almost let doubt set in. I remember Steve coming home and asking me what I thought he was doing wrong. I told him to stay the course and just be patient. It’s funny, he had the head knowledge, but the emotional weariness caused doubt. Oftentimes, he would lose a huge chunk the next week and have a big victory, which would carry him through until the next weigh-in. A lot of the time, if Tasha had a great weigh-in, Steve didn’t  – and she would encourage him, and vice versa.

walking-with-a-friend-12My next suggestion is to not do this alone. First, find a friend to do this with – whether in person or virtually online (like a facebook friend). Chances are, one of you will be up when the other is down and vice versa – and you can strengthen each other during those tough times.

Also, don’t leave God out. If you are committed to work on your physical body, commit to also work on your spiritual body too. Ask God to show Himself to you, to be your strength through this and to help you become the person He desires you to be from the inside out.

As you well know, weight loss is even more mental than it is physical. Steve and Tasha did a lot of praying (individually, together and for one another), and they both grew a lot through the whole process. Let this be a chance for God to work stuff OUT of you while you work the weight OFF of you. Decide now that today starts a new life, a new you.

Encouraging Meme

I will run

Song of Encouragement

This is a song that meant a lot to both Tasha & Steve during their Fat To Fit journey. I hope it encourages you too.

All my life I have been called unworthy
Named by the voice of my shame and regret
But when I hear You whisper, “Child lift up your head”
I remember, oh God, You’re not done with me yet

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I’ll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain, now I’m not who I used to be

Because I don’t have to be the old man inside of me
‘Cause his day is long dead and gone
Because I’ve got a new name, a new life, I’m not the same
And a hope that will carry me home

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I’ll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain, ’cause I’m not who I used to be

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I’ll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain, yeah, I’m not who I used to be
Oh, God, I’m not who I used to be
Jesus, I’m not who I used to be
‘Cause I am redeemed
Thank God, redeemed

Steve was tasked to put his own training methods to the test on National Television. He accepted the challenge, and after gaining as much weight as he could, together they lost over 120lbs using the our diet and exercise program we offer at our gym, Max Fitness Club. Tasha’s program included educational tools, meal plan, workout regimen and weekly weigh ins.

60-Calorie Chicken & Mushroom Tex Mex Quiche

 

One of my favorite breakfast items to put in meal plans is our mini-quiches. They are something you can make in advance so they are quick and easy to heat up for busy schedules. They are all around 50-60 calories each and they are extremely yummy (and that says a lot coming from me since I do NOT like eggs!). Tasha’s meal plan included my Spinach Mini Quiche. You can eat 3, with a topping (like parmesan cheese, sour cream or salsa depending on the flavor) for under 200 calories – and still have room for a piece of toast! They also make great snacks and are easy to track calories. You create a recipe in your Lose It app, add all the ingredients and put 12 servings (# of muffins per pan) and BAM! you are done. Counting calories is a breeze!

New Recipe

I was prepping food this past Sunday and Steve mentioned he wanted to eat a omelets this week. Well, since we don’t have a lot of down time during the week to cook, I decided to make mini quiches so he could have some quick and easy breakfast foods ready to go.

First up was my low-cal spinach mini-quiches I make all the time. Then, I thought I’d get creative. This could result in a complete disaster or a complete success – it really could go either way. But, to my surprise, it was a solid win! I made these mexican quiches (out of whatever I had on hand) that were simply amazing!!

So, I decided to be a good girl and share them with you! (My picture doesn’t look all that tasty, but it was straight up delish!)

60-Calorie Chicken & Mushroom Tex Mex Quiche

1 Cup Chicken and Juice (I used canned all white chicken) (210 calories)
2 Cups Egg Beaters (267 calories)
1 Bag of Frozen Mushrooms, 1 2/3 cups (50 calories)
1 Cup Rotel Tomatoes (60 calories)
1/2 Cup Feta Cheese (140 calories)
2-3 Oz Sliced Jalapeno Peppers in a Jar (10 calories)
2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1-2 tsp Cilantro
1 tsp fresh Minced Garlic
Salt & Pepper to taste

Mix all the ingredients together (I didn’t even thaw my mushrooms). Divide ingredients into a greased 12-muffin tin (I used Pam). Cook on 375 for 30 minutes. Serve with a dollop of sour cream. YUM!

JAN 27: You Are Your Reward

Only a few more days of my daily motivational posts to kick off the New Year strong! I hope they are “pumping you up”! In my interview with JJ Peterson, the trainer from the first episode of Fit To Fat To Fit, JJ says “you have to find your why”. As many of you know, we train people to compete in NPC competitions. However, it’s not to get them a trophy or get them a modeling contract. We do it as a goal to get them a new fitter body.

RayIn the first episode, Ray’s goal was to have kids and to be healthy enough to be the hero dad. For Tasha, our client in episode 2, it was to be a better, healthier, happier, stronger mom who could continue to be there for her family.

I agree with JJ, you have to find your why. For me, I don’t do what I do to win a title. I’m not that good at pretty much anything. LOL! But, I honestly do it just for me. I like me better when I’m fit. I am a better, happier, more confident version of myself. I have more energy for my family, clients, friends and staff. Isn’t being healthier better than any $50 trophy?

Bonnie PfiesterYOU ARE YOUR TROPHY!

When I competed (that’s me in the white) and took home a 1st and 2nd place trophy, they went straight back to the hotel where they stayed for the entire rest of my trip. It’s not like I carried them around with me everywhere I went. No!

Everywhere Tasha goes (pictured below), she is wearing her success, she’s wearing her trophy. Every pound you lose, you are carrying your trophy. You are your reward – and you are so worth it.

Your kids are FTF_FL-ST_10222015_Prd_2750so worth it. Your spouse is so worth it. Your life is worth it. If you think for a second you are being selfish, think again. If you don’t take good care of yourself, you can’t be everything you need to be for your loved ones. No! If you don’t take care of yourself, YOU are being selfish.

It’s tough to fit it all in. It’s tough to diet. But, “find your why” and let that drive you to train harder than you would for a competition. Because isn’t your health, your family, your life worth more than a title or trophy? Heck yeah!!

Fit To Fat To Fit: Steve and Tasha Talk About Their First Meeting

I hope you guys got to see the 2nd episode of Fit To Fat To Fit on A&E! I’ll be sharing photos, videos and behind the scenes footage. Please post your questions in the comments and we’ll try to answer them for you!! Thanks SO much for all your support! I hope the show was encouraging!!

 

Fit To Fat To Fit: Interview with JJ From Episode 1

Fit To Fat To Fit – Episode 1

There’s no doubt about it. Fit To Fat To Fit has impacted SO many lives already – just after 1 episode. Tissue were flying and tears were flowing not just from JJ and Ray, the stars from episode 1, but from nearly everyone who watched it – and it’s just the beginning. As we get geared up for our episode, I thought I’d catch you up and give you the inside scoop from JJ himself!! CLICK HERE to watch it online if you have not watched the show yet. It’s SO good!!

JJ PETERSONI had the privilege of interviewing JJ and asked him some of the most common questions we get asked. It’s interesting to see so many parallels between he and Steve. I love his quote “Find Your Why”. He says that’s the key to success. You have to have a powerful “WHY” to help drive you to the finish line. Clearly Ray did – and it the hope of being a dad some day fueled his success. Congrats to both JJ & Ray for an outstanding first episode!!! WOOT!

Ray and JJWhat was your first thought when you learned you had to gain weight?

My first thought was “expletive, expletive, expletive!” After I calmed down from the initial shock I thought it would be an amazing opportunity to step outside of myself and into the shoes of someone I am trying to help.

How did your friends and family respond when you told them what you were doing?

Most of them were extremely supportive! There were a few that thought I was insane and that I shouldn’t go through with it. Most of them just couldn’t wait to see me gain that weight and get soft!

What did you think was going to be the hardest part of the weight gain? And the easiest?

I totally thought that the weight gain portion would be the hardest, meaning the physical side of things. I thought it would be tough to see my abs and physique go away after working so hard to build it up. I was wrong. The hardest part for sure was the mental and emotional toll that the journey placed on me and my family. I was sad, depressed, full of despair, emotional, etc. All of the side effects that come from 6300 calories worth of poison running through you every day for 120 days!

JJ Fit To Fat To FitWhat was the hardest part of the weight gain? and easiest?

The hardest part was actually consuming that much food! 6300 calories every day is a ton of calories! The easiest??? … Shoot, I can’t even think of one. It was a long and painful process.

What was the hardest part of the weight loss? and easiest?

The hardest part of losing the weight was coming to the realizations that I couldn’t do what I was doing before. Not even close. I couldn’t move the same, run the same or lift the same way! In my mind I thought I would just be able to pick i right back up and I got a big fat slap in the face! I didn’t feel well until week 7! I learned why people give up after only a couple of weeks. You don’t see much improvement in the mirror, on the scale or in the gym and it hurts every day!

The easiest??? Getting back to REAL food. I love the taste of good, whole, real food. Nothing better than being back on my wife’s meal plans!

Ray and JJ fit to fat to fitDid the experiment change you or your training, dieting and the way you live now in any way?

I train with a whole new perspective now. I don’t focus solely on the physical anymore. I take a much more balanced approach to training making sure to touch on mental and emotional, even spiritual things as well as the physical. At the end of the day, you can’t have one without the other. I view food differently also. We have heard for a million years that “you are what you eat” but now I know it for myself! The food you eat LITERALLY becomes your makeup. It effects your hormones and even your DNA. It can either be fuel or it can be poison and it is a choice!

Ray and JJ fit to fat to fitWhat did you learn that you feel now makes you a better trainer?

Instead of coming from a place of judgement I am now coming from a place of LOVE. If I gained anything from this experiment it’s this: We are all in this together so we better be coming from a place of love.

If you could only share 1 tip for overweight people wanting to lose weight, what would it be?

Find your “WHY” … For Ray, his “why” was the desire to become a father and a hero to his future children. That is powerful! When the hard times hit (and they will!) your why has to be strong enough for you to keep fighting for!! Fall in love with yourself and realize that you are worth it! Each one of us IS worth it. It’s time we start acting like it!

FIT TO FAT TO FIT – EPISODE 2

This is a reminder that, Fit to Fat to Fitafter a year of shooting, extreme weight gain and extreme weight loss, we get to see the show for the first time on A&E. We will be launching a series of video interviews discussing behind the scenes struggles and stories after the show airs tonight, along with Steve and Tasha’s final after photos. Please tell your friends to tune in to watch this amazing project!

We hope you like the show and that it encourages many people!

JAN 26: Don’t Let Fat Win!

fat will surrender I wish I knew why people all the sudden get amazing results after years of “trying”. The only thing I can attribute that too is pure determination and commitment. The good news is, if you have failed a million times before, you can still win this time.

No matter how many times you have joined a gym and stopped after the first month. No matter how many times you started a diet that only lasted a few weeks. No matter how many things you have tried, THIS TIME can be the time fat surrenders.

Are You Kidding Me?

Think about what we let get in our way. A little short-term comfort? Something we can taste for only a few minutes or seconds? Are we really going to let food, and whatever other excuse we may have, have that much power over us?

Food is great, but we shouldn’t be enslaved to it. We all have ailments, but we shouldn’t let the hold us back from doing something. We all have excuses – and even legitimate ones, but we don’t have to use them.

Make this year the year you get serious. The year you quit allowing your flesh to beat you. Take authority over your body! Take God’s lead, when He says “deny your flesh”. He’s no dummy! He knows how much trouble we can get in if we let it have everything it wants.

I’m praying this is the year you reach your goals and are able to encourage others to do the same.

Tasha and Steve struggled just like anyone else. Tasha didn’t need a trainer. She needed someone to believe in her and to simply hold her accountable. You can have that in a workout partner or even an online buddy – and so many people do it without anyone or anything to help them. For Tasha, one of her #1 motivators was her mom. While her mom is no longer with her, she wanted to make her mom proud and she used that to push her through the tough times.

Find your motivation. Be your motivation. Do it for you.

You Can Do This!

Polar A360 Review: Meet My New Workout Partner

IMG_7927What do you think would motivate you to take your fitness to the next level? New music? Got it. New outfit? Maybe. Different gym? Nope. They’d just have the same kinds of peeps, just different faces.

How about a new training partner? Or, better yet, someone who pushes you, holds you accountable, tracks your heart rate, tracks your calories, reminds you to keep moving, pats you on the back when you do a good job and will even let you know when your wife calls? And, this workout partner would be there on time, morning or night, and never let you down. Sounds pretty dreamy huh? Well, I guess I’m living the dream then!

Let me introduce you to my new workout partner. His name is Paul R.

FullSizeRender copyPaul and I have been training together for about 2 months now. He thinks he is my trainer more than my workout partner. He’s always showing me my heart rate and screaming at me to “get moving” when I am staying still to long. Paul is a very good communicator and understands that I need to know when anyone is trying to call or text me.

Paul R. and I got off to a slow start at first. He seemed complicated and hard to understand. All it took to see what really made him “tick” was to sit down and listen to him for about 20 minutes. In a very short time to get to know Paul, and I think we are communicating great. He already knows what I need in a workout partner.

Paul knows I like my notifications even if I cant reach my phone. He knows I want some encouragement when I meet my goals and he keeps me updated on how close I am to reaching them. Paul is such a giver. He stays awake while I sleep and even will tell me the next day how well I rested.

I am completely obsessed with calories and Paul knows this. He isn’t afraid to hurt my feelings on the days I don’t reach my goals and I am glad. I don’t need a workout partner to just blow smoke. At first, I thought I was going to have to find a different lifting partner because I am particular about how I measure heart rate.

Polar A360Even though Paul has proven he can measure my heart rate very accurately with his optical heart rate sensor, I am old school and prefer to wear a heart rate chest monitor. After a small discussion, he got a little “blue” and paired with my chest monitor via blue tooth. I will admit, almost every objection or fight Paul and I have, it has been addressed and has left me way beyond impressed.

Paul has continually gone out of his way to prove a faithful partner. Now I have become almost addicted to his feedback and accountability. He writes down all of my stats from every workout that we track. He gives me detailed reports with his awesome friend, Miss Polar Flow.

Paul has an amazing memory and can recall my activity for up to two weeks, but once he syncs it with Flow, the information becomes a great source of encouragement and goal setting.

So, huge kudos to the best workout partner in the world, who has continually pushed me to make great fitness gains over the last two months. Thank you Mr. Paul R. (AKA Polar A360).

Sincerely,

Steve Pfiester

7 Reasons I’m In Heaven with the Polar 360

  1. It pairs with my heart rate monitor chest strap for optimal heart rate tracking, but it also offers wrist-based heart rate training too for convenient every day use.
  2. Clarity of the display. I love that I can read the display (without reading glasses! LOL!)
  3. It has smart notifications, which makes it easier for me to retrieve messages at work, during workouts and those times it would be rude to pull out your phone.
  4. It tracks my activity and workouts, helping me reach my goals.
  5. It has a great battery life. (I use the heck out of it and only charge it every 3-4 days)
  6. It is classy, sleek and streamlined, matching everything.
  7. It is super comfortable .
  8. It has awesome detailed reports and quickly pairs with my iphone (i had to plug my last Polar in to view my workout stats)

Steve & Bonnie PfiesterWifey Likey

Steve isn’t a big “techy” guy, so if he can figure out how to use it, anyone can. Plus, I LOVE that he no longer misses my texts. Since he trains clients back to back, he doesn’t check his texts because he doesn’t want to be rude or unprofessional in the middle of training Now, he can glance at his wrist, get my message, and not miss a thing without even pulling his phone out.” – Bonnie Pfiester

Polar A360A Win with Friends

I was so excited about my new Polar A360, I was telling everyone about it. A matter of fact, I had friends (Christopher & Dawn) in town visiting from Utah. Christopher and Dawn are super active. If they aren’t working out in their basement gym, they are exploring the awesome Utah sites.

Christopher has had several activity trackers but was really wanting one that had the built-in heart rate monitor that also was compatible with a chest strap. He loved the idea of tracking heart rate throughout the day. He also wanted smart notifications – and, of course, he really liked the A360’s cool touch screen. After drilling me with questions, they decided they liked my new Polar so much, they both ordered one – and their new Polars were waiting for them when they got back home.

I asked them how they were liking them and this is what they said.

“Love the wrist-based heart rate monitor for constant feedback on my daily activity level. The color touch screen makes it super easy to start training sessions and view my progress during that session.” – Christopher Borders

DAY 25: Lose Weight, Gain More

One of the things I notice most about people who lose weight is how it changes their attitude. People become more confident, positive, happy, helpful and energetic. I didn’t really know just how much weight affected people until I experienced living with an overweight husband.

couch potatoWhen Steve gained the weight for the TV show (Fit To Fat To Fit on A&E), he became a different person. He was constantly complaining. He was always fatigued and had no energy to do normal daily activities. Even fun stuff became a chore. Shute! Even tying his shoes became a chore.

That’s when I really began to understand how fat can get in the way of so much more than just your health. I realized his weight was keeping him from being the husband he wanted to be, the trainer he wanted to be and the person God called him to be.

Steve and Bonnie PfiesterWhile I’m happy to say that he is no longer that person and he is back to his fit energetic self, it was a very good experience for me to better understand how people’s weight affects more than their waistline. Even thought I knew Steve loved me, he had a hard time demonstrating his love to me because of his weight. Whether he preferred to stay home because he was ashamed of the way he looked, or because he was just too tired and lazy to do anything, his weight changed how he lived life.

I encourage you to think about how your weight is really weighing you down. Can you really be the man or woman God called you to be with extra baggage? Can you be your best if you don’t feel your best? Are you putting your future at risk by allowing your weight to hold you back from your fullest potential?

Being overweight isn’t just about they way you look, it is about so much more. Decide this year to be the best you you can be, including the best weight you can be too.
