Wishing you health, happiness, and prosperity in the New Year.

We are grateful for you being a part of the AXIOM family. We have exciting improvements for the New Year.

We are updating our website with new content, pictures, and videos. Starting AXIOM University: the School of Fitnessology to bring you weekly emails to educate you on the most cutting edge information on health, fitness, and nutrition. Creating 2 new group training classes called Metabolic Conditioning and Total Body Strength. These classes replace Get Fit Boot camp. And much more!

Toast to a Healthy and Fit New Year,

Luke, Lisa, John, Shelly, and Alix

Hope you enjoyed the long weekend with your loved ones in celebrating Christmas Holiday.

This is the week if you are considering to get fit for the New Year. We want to share with you why we feel our 90 Day Challenge is the right choice for you.

Here are the 10 Reasons to Join the 90 Day NYR Challenge.

1. Put nutrition first.

When most people think about losing weight or getting in shape, they think about exercise. They sign up for a gym, hire a personal trainer, or grab a book or a magazine to find a workout plan. But while exercise is a crucial part of losing weight and getting healthy, I’d argue that it’s not the most important piece.

Research shows that with exercise alone you can expect to lose only about half a pound to one pound per month. That’s less than inspiring. Sad, really.

So if exercise alone gets dismal results, what does work? Simple: Focusing on nutrition and eating habits with a program that combines a support system and group training, you can expect to lose five times more fat in the same one month period.

TAKEAWAY: Sound nutrition is the key to fat loss.

2. Find a big motivator.

We’ve all heard that to make a big change, motivation must come from inside. And it’s true. We all need a “reason why” – a real purpose and a sense of why losing fat and getting in shape is important to us.

But sometimes you need extra motivation to actually start making change. You need a big motivator that pushes you into action.

Join the 90 NYR Challenge and get the chance to win $500 cash and free membership for the rest of the year! That is a big motivator in itself!

TAKEAWAY: What’s your big motivation? How can you make it even bigger?

3. Find something to lose.

Throughout your body transformation, you need to be held accountable. There needs to be something at stake, something to lose if you don’t follow through or if you drop out early.

We take away all of the risk by guaranteeing results as long as you stick with the program. We do enforce your full commitment to the program.

The principle here? The harder it is to quit, the easier it is to succeed.

TAKEAWAY:Raise the stakes and put something at risk to keep you going.

4. Choose proof over theory. 

Most people get lured into trying out untested theories, and have only disappointment and wasted time to show for it in the end.

No one wants to start an exercise or nutrition program where the success rate is zero. Yet a lot of people invest their time and money in something where they’re not quite sure if it works.

We at AXIOM strive to give you the best results with the best program. It’s what we do…It’s what we love to do!

TAKEAWAY:Commit only to a proven program, and leave the theories for everyone else.

5. Do one small thing each day.

“If something is important, do it every day; if it’s not important, don’t do it at all.”  That’s especially true in body transformation.

Make one improvement in what you do when it comes to eating, moving, and thinking.

If you don’t you will get overwhelmed.

Sadly, some of you find this out the hard way. You make a heroic effort to change every part of your life, from the time you wake up in the morning to the kinds of foods you eat to adopting a new workout program and dozens of other changes.

This all-or-nothing attitude may work for a week or two, but pretty soon you’ll crash and burn and be right back where you started. That’s why it’s important to practice one small thing at a time instead of trying to make a mad-dash for the finish line.

Focus on TODAY! Do not worry about the past or future.

TAKEAWAY: Turn your commitment into a single, daily action.

6. Make it a little too easy.

Most people attempt to change too much at once. But that makes it nearly impossible to change anything at all.  That’s why whatever one small thing you decide to do, you must be confident that you can do it consistently. A habit doesn’t become a habit by practicing it only a few times.

“On a scale of 1 to 10 – 1 being not confident, and 10 being very confident – how confident are you that you can do this one habit every day?”

If the answer is a 9 or a 10, you have your new habit and can start practicing it immediately. But if you answer anything other than a 9 or a 10, you need to make the habit easier until it becomes something you’re confident you can do consistently.

If your one small habit is to eat five servings of vegetables every day, you must answer with a 9 or 10 before starting. If you don’t answer with a 9 or a 10, you simply need to make it easier.

Instead of eating five servings of vegetables every day, could you eat 3? What about 2 servings of vegetables every day?  What about 1 serving of vegetables every day?

Whenever you can answer a 9 or a 10 – “Am I confident I can do this habit every day?” – you have your new habit.

During the process of scaling down your habit, you may realize it seems ridiculously simple. It may seem too easy. That’s perfect.

If it seems so easy that you have to roll your eyes, you know you can do it consistently. And you can gradually increase the difficulty over time.

TAKEAWAY: Make everything you commit to easier until you have 90%+ confidence you can do it.

7. Find someone to answer to.

You need someone in your corner who helps keep you accountable and picks you up when your motivation wanes.

AXIOM will be in your corner for the full 90 Days. We will host bi-weekly support groups to help keep you on track. We need change is not easy so it is crucial you attend these sessions.

TAKEAWAY: Put someone (AXIOM) in your corner to hold you accountable.

8. Measure Actions, Not Outcomes.

We can’t control outcomes, but we can control our actions that may lead to those outcomes. In other words, you can’t focus on losing 20 pounds since it’s an outcome that’s out of your control. Every day you step on the scale, you’re focusing on what you don’t have.

“I still have 17 pounds to go. I’m not even close to there yet. This is so frustrating.”

Instead of focusing on the outcome, our clients focus on their action, the small, healthy things they do consistently every day. Instead of focusing on what they don’t have, they turn their attention to what they do have.

“I’m going to do my workout today.”
“I’m going to practice my new habit and eat 5 servings of vegetables.”
“I’m going to read my lesson and contact my coach if I have a question.”

Actions practiced daily and built up over time, lead to amazing results. Focusing on outcomes only leads to frustration and despair.

TAKEAWAY: Track what you have control over – your actions.

9. Let your coach (AXIOM) track results.

While you’re busy with your daily habits and behaviors, you’ll need someone – a coach, a trainer, a friend who’s made a similar transformation – to monitor your progress and make small adjustments if needed.

This frees you to focus on the most important thing within your control: your daily behaviors.

We will track your results on a monthly basis and tweak the areas that need adjustments to keep getting results.

TAKEAWAY: Find a coach or mentor (AXIOM) to monitor your progress and save you from “wondering and worrying.”

10. You need a support group.

Here’s something you’ve probably heard before: “You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.”

With a good support network you can connect with people when you’re excited, confused, or wondering what to do next. You’ll have people around you who can offer feedback, guidance, and support.

Our bi-weekly support group will help you be successful!

TAKEAWAY: People who have a strong support group often have more dramatic transformations than someone who goes at it alone.

PRE-THANKSGIVING WORKOUT

Metabolic Circuit:

(Workout first thing in the morning)

Run in place or jumping jacks (1 minute)

Spiderman Plank (hold 30 seconds)

Squat Jumps (20 reps)

Push-ups (10-20 reps)

Split Squat Jumps (20 reps)

Supermans (20 reps)

Mountain Climbers (30 reps)

Bicycle Crunches (30 reps)

Rest 1 minute

Repeat circuit 3 more times

This workout will jump start your metabolism and keep it running high all day long!

You can eat whatever you want… 

Some of you might be in shock right now! Yes, I said eat and drink whatever you want for Thanksgiving. 

All of you deserve to treat yourself to a nice meal or two during the holidays. So enjoy yourself with your family and friends!

What is the catch? There is no catch! Actually, if you do the workout above and feast upon all your favorite foods and drink it will boost your metabolism! How so, you might ask? Well, when you consume way more calories than your body is used to your metabolism must kick into overdrive to burn the excess calories. Hence, an elevated metabolism all day long! Also, it will be great for you mentally to finally have the food and drink you have been waiting for so you don’t feel deprived of your favorite food and drink.

THE ACTION PLAN

Prep your body for the big day! TODAY you should get in a high intensity workout and make sure you get your sweat on! Drink lots of water and eat plenty of fruit, veggies, nuts, and lean protein.

TURKEY DAY: EAT, DRINK, EAT, AND DRINK!!! Enjoy food and drink but DO NOT stuff yourself!

Friday will be a key day to keep the metabolism revved up. Workout in the morning again and restrict your calorie intake. Only eat left over turkey breast, lots of veggies, and nuts with plenty of water all day long.

Have a great Thanksgiving Day!

Luke, John, Lisa, and Shelly

I was truly inspired after watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead on Netflix. This documentary was brought to my attention by one of my clients. I was moved so much by the movie that I want to share it with all of you.

This movie is about Joe Cross, an Aussie, who challenged himself to do a 60 Day juice fast! Not only did he lose about 80lbs, but also changed many lives along his journey.
Watch the Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead movie trailer:

Starting today I will be juicing for the next 10 days. I want to reboot my body and give my digestive system a rest. I also want to have more energy, feel good, and look great!

Will you join me in this journey to better health?

I challenge you to take this quest with me. I will be posting my experiences on my Facebook. You can follow me and see my triumphs and struggles. For those of you who will join me let’s friend each other on Facebook and support each other.

Some of you will want to watch and see what happens over the next 10 days before you start a juicing challenge. That’s fine with me. The day after Thanksgiving will be a perfect time for you to start. I am hear to help and answer any questions you may have with juicing.

Please visit www.fatsickandnearlydead.com

The website will give you tips, recipes, and testimonials of successful reboots.

So, who is with me?

The second letter in our acronym, ‘O’, stands for simply this – Open
to Communication Variances.

The ‘Lombardi-style’ coaching system doesn’t work.  You can’t just bark
orders and think that every young athlete you train is going to be listening.
With coaching, one-size DOES NOT fit all.  Just like physical ability, size,
relative strength and potential, they way a young athlete needs to be
communicated with is specific to that child or teen.

Now, I’m no fool.  I’ve spent nearly 10 years in the trenches and know full
well that when you have a group of kids (say 20 six year olds) getting to know
them well enough and being able to provide individual attention to them is
challenging to say the least.  But that doesn’t mean individualized communication
isn’t possible.  It just takes a system.

Over my years working with kids, I have found that every one of the young
athletes I’ve trained fits somewhere into the following category:

  1. High Motivation/High Skill
  2. High Motivation/Low Skill
  3. Low Motivation/High Skill
  4. Low Motivation/Low Skill

A brief overview of the template that shows how to communicate with each
of these young athletes is as follows:

  1. Delegate – Look to get this young athlete involved in the training and
    planning process.  Have them lead warm-ups for the group.  Have them
    create the warm-up within the boundaries of your system.  If they are
    older, have them help you co-coach your younger groups.  Keeping this
    young athlete engaged is a critical part of keeping them excited about
    the training process and provide a perfect communication scenario.
  2. Guide – This young athlete doesn’t require more motivation – they need
    to enhance their skill.  Rather than trying to incite them positively (because
    they’re already incited!) slow them down and guide them through the
    process of skill increase slowly.  Breakdown complex exercises into specific
    stages and teach them in a whole-part-whole method.  Communication
    will be automatically improved.
  3. Inspire – This young athlete is great at everything, but lacks the necessary
    motivation to produce consistent effort (likely due to pressure from other
    coaches or their parents).  Don’t ‘ride’ them or even ask them to work
    harder – they will tune you out quicker than you can say TRX!  Instead, talk
    with them about what inspires them.  What gets them excited?  We all have
    a switch on the inside that can turn on when the situation is a quality and
    inspiring one for us.  Find where there switch is and help them turn it on.
  4. Direct – Don’t put this young athlete on the spot – even in a positive manner.
    They crave autonomy and the ability to just ‘blend in’.  So give it to them.
    Provide instructions for the group at large and then quietly be sure that they
    know what is expected of them in the up-coming exercise or drill.  Once they
    realize that your communication with them will be non-threatening, they will
    deem your training environment a ‘safe’ one and start to open up.  That’s
    where the fun will start!

Sometimes, it’s beneficial to be given sample programs of what to do with young athletes in certain situations.

Luke Fichtner, BS NASM-CPT, IYCA-YFS, YSS AXIOM Health & Fitness

Other times, it’s better to understand a philosophy of training.

I have found in my career, that appreciating the concept of what to do with young athletes is tremendously more important than the former.

With young athletes, knowing the ‘why’ behind the ‘what’ is terribly important.

Moreover, understanding the universal laws of development that govern all human growth – and how they are applied to programming for young athletes – will allow you to create specific programs that are compatible with your given situation.

When working with young athletes the acronym ‘M.O.L.D’ provides a perfect backdrop for understanding what, specifically, are the musts of training this particular demographic.

Movement is Critical for Young Athletes

‘M’ stands for one of the most important tenants governing young athlete training – Movement Must Dominate.

Although this seems like an absolute ‘no-brain’ reality, I am constantly amazed how many times it is breached within the fitness and sport training world with respect to young athletes.

Kids and teenagers don’t belong sitting on strength training machines producing force.

Just watch a young person in their natural environment.

They move; constantly.

This desire to play, run, skip, hop, throw things and climb is not a product of ‘ants-in-the-pants’ or any other form of contemporary ‘illness’ as defined by modern society (ADD for example).

The neurology of human growth and development shows that during the young periods of life, the CNS is in constant ‘gathering’ mode.

As young people, we are learning.

Our bodies, governed by our CNS, are wired to explore movements, environments and situations. Kids don’t mean to ‘get into things’ – they are being instructed to by an ever-changing, always-learning CNS that is requiring continual input.

Not only should this reality be honored and respected, it MUST be enhanced within the training systems of young athletes.

AXIOM Athletes are taught how to move and produce force through an unregulated and free manner! They are assuredly on the right track. Run, jump,throw, kick, hop, skip… That kind of stuff!!
