Would you like to lose weight?

who would like to lose weight

In August I started teaching fitness classes at a local gym. The classes are specifically designed for women between 25 and 60 years old. They have lost about 6 pounds per month, on average. Needless to say they´re really happy with their results.

These last weeks, I’ve been thinking that I could turn these classes into a free online challenge to give back all the support you’ve given me during these four years I’ve been in the blogosphere.

The workouts last one hour, three times a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We do body weight and resistance bands exercises, so you do not have to spend money on expensive equipment.

Before spending hours setting up the challenge and no one is interested, I prefer to ask you, would you like to lose weight?

If so, a simple “yes” in the comments section would be enough to let me know.

The definitive tool for online training

The definitive tool for online training, Evernote, Evernote for fitness, workout, diet, online training

The definitive tool for online training

Technology is the tool that has made possible changes, in different areas, throughout history. Today, the personal training industry is experiencing a new change thanks to Internet, the most important technological advance in decades.

Since 2014, when many of my face-to-face clients were forced to emigrate from Spain to other countries, I asked myself if I would be able to train them online while maintaining the quality and efficiency of the service.

the definitive online training tool, Evernote, Evernote for fitness, training, workout, course

After trying several (many) applications, I found Evernote. Evernote is used by more than 225 million users worldwide. Evernote is an app designed to help anyone achieve their goals, whatever they may be, increases their productivity and allows to collaborate with other members in real time.

As a personal trainer, I understand that each client has a specific “project”, improve their physical appearance or their health, for example. My idea was to offer my clients training plans and online diets without losing quality in the service or personalized attention.

Considering the good results that my clients obtained with this new online “method”, I decided to create my online business and offer my services all over the world. Without a doubt, it was a wise decision that has given me many joys, professionally and personally.

the definitive tool for online training, Evernote, Evernote for fitness, training, workout, diet, goals, health

Is it possible to go from 10 face-to-face clients to 100 online clients?

It’s possible. Technology has made it possible. The Internet has affected all industries. Netflix or Spotify are good examples of how certain sectors have adapted to the new people´s needs and demands. Personal training must also find new ways in this new digital reality.

Will face-to-face personal training disappear? Surely not. Cinemas or vinyl records have not disappeared either. However, now the client may decide to go to the movies or watch a movie at home, at a time that suits him or her.

There are many areas where, unfortunately, there is no personal trainer nearby, or their prices are prohibitive. There will be clients who never do an online training session, because they neither like nor attract them. But millions of them will demand that service: online training with the quality of a face-to-face session. Or combine both types of training, alternating face-to-face classes and specific online programs to achieve a specific goal. According to a recent study conducted by Mindbody, 96% of clients believe that they are not training with the right coach to achieve their goals.

the definitive tool for online training, Evernote, Evernote for fitness, course, fitness, trainer

Here at chape.fitness, thanks to Evernote we put the client in the center of personal training, making the communication client-coach constant and effective and enabling the personal trainer to attend online with the same quality as if he did it in face-to-face sessions.

I have been serving clients online for years, is the public willing to move to the next level in online training? I’m sure. Are coaches willing to accept this new reality? It looks like it is. Right now I´m launching a course on how to use Evernote as the definitive tool for online training and the answer could not be more promising. Maybe, in a few years, customers from all over the world will be able to find the right coach for them thanks to this new digital reality.

Free consultation

free consultation, fitness, bodybuilding, weightlifting, weightloss, sport, training, workout, diet

Until the end of the month I am offering a free consultation. A 15-minute video call where I will answer all your questions about your workouts and diets.

I´m working on a new service and I think this would be a  good first step to get to know how best to implement the apps I´m going to use in this new service: Calendly and GoToMeeting. So I think this is a win-win situation.

Do you have doubts about which training method is best for you? What are the most effective exercises you could do in the comfort of your home? What kind of diet would best suit your pace of life? What foods are sabotaging your results? I will solve any question you have. Do not hesitate and book your free 15-minute consultation.

I think these apps are really easy to use, but I´d really appreciate your feedback.

On the other hand, my fellow bloggers and friends, if you have no questions but want to talk to me and listen to my sweet voice, it will be my pleasure to chat about whatever you want, after 4 years of blogging. I would like to try this in as many countries and with as many people as possible.

I hope you like this initiative and encourage you to participate. Also, feel free to share with any friend of yours that could benefit from this free consultation.

Thank you so much!

Plan your workouts like a pro

How to plan your workouts, fitness, cardio, strenght, sport, health
Today I´m going to explain how to plan your workouts like a pro. Planning your training sessions is key to succeed. I bet you´ve heard the famous quote “Failing to plan is planning to fail”. When it comes to fitness plans, “failing” means not meeting your goals and expectations. You have to plan ahead to meet your goals because it takes much more than motivation and goodwill to get there.
 
The technical term for this kind of planning is “periodization”. It is the process of dividing an annual training plan into specific time blocks. Each block has a particular goal. This allows us to create hard training periods and easier periods, to facilitate recovery. Periodization also helps us develop different physiological abilities during various phases of training.
 
Let´s say you have found a workout routine that works well for you. That´s great but, lately, no matter how hard or how often you work out, you just can’t seem to progress any further. You’re stuck on a plateau. This is because your body has adapted to the exercise you’ve been doing. You need to “shock” or “surprise” your body, give it a new challenge periodically if you’re going to continue to make progress. Instead of doing the same routine month after month, you change your training program at regular intervals, “periods”, or “cycles” to keep your body working harder, while still giving it adequate rest. That goes for both strength and cardiovascular training.
How to plan your workouts like a pro, training, workout, progress, success, sport, fitness, weightlifting, bodybuilding, health
The goal with periodization is to maximize your progress while also reducing your risk of injury. It also addresses peak performance for competition or meets. Periodization, if appropriately arranged, can peak the athlete multiple times over a competitive season (Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, track and field) or optimize an athlete’s performance over an entire competitive season like with soccer or basketball.
 

Periodization cycles are classified by amounts of time: 

 
The macrocycle is the longest, and includes all four stages of a periodized training program: endurance, intensity, competition and recoveryAll 52 weeks of your annual plan. For example, if you want to peak for an event one year from now, you can mark that date on your calendar and work backward to create a program that allows you to peak at that time. You can use the same process to identify several major events throughout the year and develop a plan that facilitates multiple fitness peaks.
 
The mesocycle represents a specific block of training that is designed to accomplish a particular goal.  Mesocycles are typically four or six weeks in length. For instance, during the endurance phase, you might develop a mesocycle designed to enhance your muscular endurance for six weeks.
 
A microcycle is the shortest training cycle, typically lasting a week with the goal of facilitating a focused block of training. Generally speaking, four or six microcycles are tied together to form a mesocycle.  
 
You can get the most out of your training by having a good understanding of each of the three cycles of periodization and then using these cycles to create a plan that allows you to peak for your most important events throughout the year.
For example, you can alter your strength-training program by adjusting the following variables:
  • The number of repetitions per set, or the number of sets of each exercise
  • The amount of resistance used
  • The rest period between sets, exercises or training sessions
  • The order of the exercises, or the types of exercises
  • The speed at which you complete each exercise

There are many different types of periodized strength-training programs, and many are geared to the strength, power and demands of specific sports.

You should also periodize your cardiovascular training for the same reasons: challenge your body while still allowing for adequate recovery time.
 
For example, you’re a recreational runner, running for fitness, fun and the occasional short race, you’ll want to allow for flat, easy runs, as well as some that incorporate hills and others that focus on speed and strength.
What you don’t want to do is complete the same run every time. If you run too easily, and don’t push yourself, you won’t progress. And chances are you’ll get bored. Conversely, too much speed or high-intensity training will lead to injury or burnout, and most likely, disappointing race results.
 
If you want to improve your time in a 10K or completing a half marathon or even a full marathon, you’ll need a periodized program geared to each type of race.
 
Specially designed periodized training programs are also available for cycling and many other sports.
 
Periodized training will ensure that you continue to make measurable progress, which will keep you energized and interested in reaching your goals.
 

Proven benefits of periodization:

  • Management of fatigue, reducing risk of over-training by managing factors such as load, intensity, and recovery
  • The cyclic structure maximizes both general preparation and specific preparation for sport.
  • Ability to optimize performance over a specific period of time
  • Accounting for the individual, including time constraints, training age and status, and environmental factors.

Plan your workouts according to your goals.

There are different types of periodization: 
 

Linear periodization

is the most commonly used style of training. This form of periodization gradually increases volume, intensity, and work by mesocycles in an annual training plan. Progressive overload is a major key to the success of this training style. This style is characterized by longer training periods, less reliance on super compensation, and a focus of more general training over specific.

This programming style is useful for building a strong foundation, progressing in one variable, and working towards a peaking point. Recommended for those who are newer to training, it’s definitely the easiest periodization style to understand.
 

Non-linear/undulated periodization

rely on constant change throughout training cycles. As opposed to a linear periodization that focuses on gradual increase of one variable, this style manipulates multiple variables like exercises, volume, intensity, and training adaptation on a frequent basis (daily, weekly, or even bi-weekly). Non-linear periodization is more advanced than linear and incorporates multiple types of stimuli into a training program.
This programming style is an excellent way of individually training one variable and secondarily training others at the same time. It’s often used for those with advanced training backgrounds and longer sport seasons. For example, think about a program that has you train strength one day, then power two days later – this is non-linear.
 

Block periodization

focuses on breaking down specific training periods into 2-4 week periods. It consists of a two-block design, accumulation and restitution.
In the accumulation blocks, the focus is directed toward supporting motor abilities while simultaneously developing certain strength qualities necessary for the athlete with a limited volume load.
The restitution block is essentially the opposite. They support strength qualities in the athlete, while addressing the development of specific, technical motor qualities with a limited volume load. These training loads must target different abilities (max-strength, explosive strength, max anaerobic power, etc.). 
The goal behind these smaller, specific blocks is to allow an athlete to stay at their peak level longer, since most sports call for multiple peaks. Within the training season, athletes will only focus on adaptations they need specifically for their sport, if an athlete doesn’t need endurance, they won’t train for it.
When trying to maintain a high level of athleticism for competition over an extended amount of time, block periodization can be a great tool. By frequently training specific training adaptations you work towards progressing in your sport with the variable you need, and avoid burning out.
 
Periodization has stood the test of time for the simple fact that there are so many progressions and ways to structure your training so that you can be at your best when it matters most. Failing to utilize any form of periodization for your training could lead to overtraining, failure to recover appropriately for progression, and the inability to see the progress you deserve from the time you put into training.

I know that planning workouts for the first time can be complicated, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask me and I will help you.

Weight-Loss Mistakes That Could Make You Pile On The Pounds

weight-loss, mistakes, weight-loss mistakes, diet, food

Losing weight is easy, right? You just need to start increasing the number of workouts you do each day and start eating a bit less. That’s it, isn’t it? Well, in actual fact, it might not be as simple as that. There are a lot of mistakes that some people make without even realizing it, and these mistakes could lead to them actually adding on a few extra pounds. Depending on the mistake, that extra weight gain could even occur if you have increased your workouts and decreased your food intake.

Thankfully, it can be very easy to spot these mistakes and make the necessary changes to your lifestyle that are needed to get in better shape. Here are some of the most common mistakes when trying to lose weight – make sure you don’t make them yourself!

Doing Too Much Cardio

There are lots of people out there who believe that doing a lot of cardio workouts is the key to losing weight. True, the more you sweat and get out of breath, then the more calories you will be burning. However, just sticking to cardio isn’t good enough, as your body will become used to it, and it won’t be quite as effective as you would have hoped. So, it’s important to know how much cardio to lose weight is necessary. Generally speaking, two to three sessions should be enough. However, you need to make sure that you are also doing at least two strength sessions each week as well. Strength training is another effective way for your body to burn calories, and can also turn all that fat into muscle.

Not Eating Enough Calories

If you ask anyone about what you need to do to lose any excess weight, I’m sure that they will tell you that it’s necessary to reduce the number of calories you eat every day. This is true to some extent, but you shouldn’t follow a too restrictive diet, or else you could actually find that your body stops burning off any fat. That’s because not eating enough calories will drastically slow down the metabolism and will also lead to muscle loss.

Opting For Diet Foods

These days there are a lot of “diet foods” that say they have zero calories or fat in them. These may look very tempting when you are doing your grocery shopping in the supermarket as you will still be able to eat some of your favorite treats and not feel guilty about it. However, these foods are often highly processed, which isn’t good for the body. As well as that, all the highly calorific sugars are often replaced with chemicals and additives that are harmful for the body in various ways. Ideally, it’s best to stay away from these foods and stick to natural unprocessed foods that have the complete range of nutrients that your body needs.

Overestimating How Many Calories You Burn

When you come away from a very productive workout session, you will no doubt feel very out of breath and sweaty. They’re both signs that you worked super hard! And that means that you will have burned off a whole bunch of calories, right? Well, unfortunately, it can be very easy to overestimate just how many calories exercising actually does burn off. As a result, lots of people end up thinking that they burned off more than they did, and they don’t alter their diet accordingly. Generally speaking, most hard thirty-minute workout sessions will burn off between 200-300 calories. So don’t make the mistake of thinking that you burned off 800 and go away to treat yourself to a big meal!

Forgetting To Eat Enough Fiber

People know that it’s important to eat a good mix of both whole-grain carbohydrates and protein so that their body has all the necessary nutrients for energy and to aid recovery. However, you also need plenty of fiber in your diet as well, and this is something that many people often forget about. A diet rich in soluble fiber can actually help you feel a lot less hungry through the day as it reduces the appetite. So, you will find that you are less likely to overeat. Not only that, though, but lots of fiber in the diet can actually reduce the amount of calories that are absorbed by the body. So that means that you won’t be taking in as many calories, even if you are following a calorific diet!

Hopefully, you no longer make these weight-loss mistakes!

Blog Anniversary

blog, anniversary, wordpress, recap, achievement, blog anniversary

It´s my Blog´s Anniversary!

Hurrah!!! Hahaha! Let’s make it memorable, or at least special.

I would like this to serve as an encouragement to all the new bloggers out there and to send them a clear message: dreams come true with hard work and determination. Things don’t happen overnight, they take time, sweat, tears, and a little bit of luck.

As WordPress consider an anniversary as an achievement, which it true itself, I’ve accomplished a few things over these four past years. Let´s recap, just to encourage you to follow your dreams and beyond because I never expected to reach any of the milestones when I started this blog.

 

List of impossible dreams come true:

2014: Stanza/Nike partner. After a long interview with the founders, they invited me to join their calendar and collaborate in the Nike Training app. This was mind-blowing, but only the beginning of a long and amazing journey.

2015: Fitfluential.com accepted me as Ambassador. Becoming part of a community of coaches and fitness influencers with so many followers, was not easy. It was a rush!

2016: I joined the Jordan Breakfast Club. I´m a die-hard basketball fan, and I grew up watching MJ and the Chicago Bulls. An exhaustive interview with the Senior Director, Global Brand Marketing was an unforgettable experience for me. That they also consult my opinion before launching each new online challenge, is something that fills me with pride and satisfaction.

2017: Evernote Community Leader. This is what I was looking for! Because I use Evernote to help people over the world reach their fitness goals, this was the kind of recognition I needed to take my game to the next level.

2018: Top 100 Fitness Blogs on the planet. Last time I checked it on Google, there were 113 million fitness blogs. #73 is not bad, isn´t it? This caused a small local/national revolution and I got interviewed on TV, radio, and newspapers.

For what I had come:

Since I stumbled upon Evernote, I realized that it was a wonderful tool for personal trainers. And I put all my effort into developing the perfect environment for online training. I must respect the privacy and wishes of my clients, but some have been so kind to let me share with you all their experiences and achievements.

Nothing compares to the feeling when a client achieves his/her goals. It’s happiness, pride, satisfaction… all stirred up like a cocktail! 

What comes now:

You may have noticed that this summer I have written less than usual. I have been working on new articles that I hope you like, thinking about new services to offer and, above all, writing a course on how to use Evernote for fitness, which will be aimed at fitness professionals, studios, and gyms. I can tell you that the guys at Evernote are very excited about this and the course will see the light next month. This course will be a game-changer!
