I am a member of the .01 percent. That means that I have achieved long term- big time weight loss. My top non-pregnancy weight was 185 pounds, and I have been maintaining my weight at within 5 pounds of 120 ever since 2009.
I became a Certified Personal Trainer in 2012, and I completed my Fitness Nutrition Certification from the American Council on Exercise in 2015, in order to deliver my solution to overweight and obesity on a professional level.
There have been many triumphs in my career, including being named certified Turbulence Trainer of the Year in 2013. Hundreds of my clients and Sugar Freedom readers have achieved permanent fat loss with my programs, and many of them have gone on to become fitness professional themselves.
I still hope to start a movement in nutrition and fitness that acknowledges the power of simple eating and weight lifting for women. I know from personal and professional experience that the most effective physical transformation programs can be simplified down to these elements: Nutrition, training, and recovery. More specifically, the nutrition consists of the appropriate amounts of protein, fat, and vegetables. The training consists of the appropriate amounts of weight lifting, flexibility, and balance practice, done with the best possible form.
Supplements, shakes, pills, and odd equipment are simply not required. What is required is the acceptance of the fact that powerful effort is needed to overcome overweight and obesity. Some of the most entertaining and novel forms of exercise, which attract eager participants, may literally burn muscle and increase appetite in formerly obese individuals like me and many of my clients.
Simplicity and discipline are required in the kitchen, and excellent form with wise progression are required in the gym. Many of the women I know look for fun and friendship in their fitness practice. If the classes they take get results I am happy for them, and a little bit envious to tell the truth. As a working actor, dancer, and choreographer however, the condition of my body is an essential component of my ability to work. I must lift weights with the best form I can achieve, practice dance technique with precision and dedication, and eat simple nutritious food in order to be able to work.
As I prepare my training and nutrition programs for 2018, I am re-dedicating myself to Ketogenic nutrition, weight lifting, and dance technique. If you wish to train with me in 2018, now is the time to e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of your goals.
For now, I am off to the gym, and I will be creating a series of photos and videos that demonstrate my training techniques.
This is my truth when it comes to losing more than 60 pounds and keeping it off:
Eliminate sugar, grains, and processed oils from your food plan.
Lift weights with excellent form, and rest as soon as this level of form is lost.
Practice legitimate dance technique for grace, line, and to preserve femininity.
It really is this simple. The question is, are you willing to trade variety in your food and fun in your fitness for the for the body you need to fulfill your potential?
All the Best,
Catherine Best Gordon.
