Yes believe it or not but lack of movement is labeled as the "silent killer". If you really look at your daily activity you might find a big majority is "sitting" .Yes we have become a screen viewing society and many just lack movement with a combination of poor nutrition is a DEADLY combo. As you are aware, I’m sure, people who work in an office tend to sit down ALL DAY LONG, and even if they have worked out in the morning (like at your boot camp), they still might be very sedentary during the day. Here’s a typical example: Get up and go to Steve’s boot camp with your day starting at 4:30a.m. If you look at your life schedule with children. It could be even more lack of activity. Driving children to their activities and sitting and watching activities..in general we have become even more inactive the more involved our children become. On the go makes us even more open to grabbing food on the go and foods with preservatives. 4:30a.m -5:00 – SIT in car on way to Good Life Fitness 5:00-6:00am -- Boot Camp at Good Life Fitness 6:00-6:30am – SIT in car going home 6:30-7:30 – ready for work 7:30-8:00 – SIT to go to work 8:00-11:30 – SIT at work 11:30-12:30 – lunch (SIT most of it) 12:30-5:00 SIT at work 5:00-5:30 – SIT on the way home 5:30-bedtime – dinner, SIT to read/watch tv/help kids with homework, e.t.c. That’s 11 hours of sitting, not including the sitting time after 5:30p.m. Lack of activity...YES belly fat and flat butt syndrome:) Amazing when you really break down your daily activity like above. GOALS: Get up and move around through out the day. How about a ergonomic desk that allows you to stand? How about taking a walk or better yet go to the gym over your lunch hour? How about go for a run/walk when your children are at their practices? Your daily goal is 10,000 steps per day!!Share it!

Bill Phillips has been very influential in my mission today and that is to help people change their lives with ONE MEAL, ONE WORKOUT, ONE DAY AT A TIME!!!
One thing I know for sure, It's not age that makes us look old and feel old, it is inactivity, calorie toxicity, and not pushing to achieve challenging and inspiring new goals This image shows how I looked before and now in a split screen. I was in very embarrassing condition in my before. I got knocked off track a few years ago after an accident put me in a hospital bed and wheelchair for some time. My body aged fast in the time I wasn't working out. I finally looked in the mirror one day and said "EFF this!" I was feed up with being weak and tired. I didn't go on a diet... I got back to muscle building and fitness which is the best way to get strong and healthy and burn off bodyfat. Today, at age 50, I feel young and strong and energetic again. I didn't rebuild my body and renew my health overnight... It was several hundred workouts between the photos and a lot of nutrition shakes and healthy meals. My experience makes it clear to me that age doesn't keep us from being fit. Unhealthy habits continued for long periods of time causes the physical decline that most people attribute to aging. Look, we can all get off track... I did and I can tell you that the muscle goes and the fat grows pretty fast when we don't exercise and eat right. The good news is, we can all get back on track and feel strong and healthy again. I know because I did it. You can too! To clarify this transformation was not done at Good Life Fitness. Share it!

One common phrase I like to use is "your abs are created in the kitchen...not the gym":) With this being said over 90% of getting the life long dream of the ripped six pack or blasting stubborn body fat is nutrition. What if I told you that many are missing the second piece of the puzzle of how to properly train the abdomen in order to see the benefits of proper nutrition? In the fitness world there are two types of people. Person 1 is a person who thinks, "as long as I get my body fat super low, my abs will be ripped", this specific person skips ab training throughout the week or is inconsistant. Person 2 is the type of person who does countless repetitions of abs, participates in all ab classes, and can perform a million reps easily, but lacks in effort of really trying to lower their bodyfat to levels that will expose all of their hard work. The key to blasting stubborn body fat is actually becoming person 3. This person combines both methods together and will notice remarkable changes with consistancy of nutrition and frequencey of training the abdomen. What person are you? If you are person A then you need to dial in on your ab training and if you are person B then you need to focus on fat burning nutrition. Here a few key points to remember when training your abdomen. 1. Lower the repetitions. If you can crank a million reps out for the abs that is awesome but you might be missing the other key element. High reps will build your endurance but cross training with lower reps, longer contractions, and even add a little weight for extra resistance. 2. Do not train the obliques with weight. If you are looking for a narrow waist avoid doing side bends with weight as this will develop the obliques. Train Smart And Expect Success! Steve Share it!
