Three Tips for Getting Back on the Horse

Falling off track is understandable–it happens to the best of us. The truth is, being 100% perfect at all times isn’t a reasonable expectation.

We’re all human, and to expect yourself to never slip up is an exercise in futility.

So the question becomes not how you can avoid ever giving in to temptation, but how you can get back on track as quickly as possible and minimize the damage of said slip.

The truth is, a mistake in your nutrition or training made in isolation has almost no impact whatsoever on your long term results.

On the other hand, allowing a momentary lapse of motivation to become a whole day, week or month’s worth of poor decision making can absolutely undo a great amount of hard work.

Let’s take a look at some tried-and-true tips for ending the downward spiral before it starts. Continue Reading Three Tips for Getting Back on the Horse »

Think You can Starve Your Way to Weight Loss Goals? Think Again!

Eating for weight loss can be tricky. Everywhere you look, there’s different advice being given. Some articles/authority figures say eat more to lose more, others tell you to go on a juice fast, yet others recommend eating nothing but specialized meal replacements, or to eat low carb/high fat, go Paleo… the list goes on and on.

Frustratingly, every piece of advice seems to directly contradict that which came before it. So who is right?

In this article I’m going to break down one of the main claims–that eating as little as possible (whether in terms of calories, carbohydrates, fats or otherwise) is the best way to lose weight–and I’ll give you a better method that will help you get vastly superior results.

Rhonda’s 12 Week Weight Loss Journey: Weeks 11 and 12

Over the past 12 weeks we have shared our client Rhonda’s trials, tribulations and victories as she has candidly given us a first-hand look at what it’s been like for her on her health and fitness journey.

Too often, weight loss is sold as something that is (or should be) “simple and easy,” but as we all know, it isn’t. Weight loss takes trial and error, patience, and most importantly, the ability to get back up on it after you fall off the horse.

Hopefully this series has provided a more realistic view of what it’s like to commit yourself to a newfound weight loss program and has shown that with persistence and determination, you can and will reach your goals.

In Rhonda’s final entry, we continue on from her Weeks 9 and 10 DiaryContinue Reading Rhonda’s 12 Week Weight Loss Journey: Weeks 11 and 12 »

Rhonda’s 12 Week Weight Loss Journey: Week 1

The ultimate goal of any gym or training facility should be to change people’s lives–if your gym doesn’t have this focus, then we suggest you leave it.

Many have their own obstacles when joining a gym or making this change, whether it be time, financial constraints, or simply a fear of change.

We at TGTN have been given the opportunity to change one more life, Rhonda’s life. Rhonda, 37, came to us with her weight spiraling out of control to 265 lbs. Like many of us before, she was lost both in terms of direction and motivation, and was looking for a real, permanent change in her life and health.
