The program will guide you with safe, highly effective strategies that lead to fat loss, muscle gain, and ultimately to a fit and healthy lifestyle that you can reasonably maintain.
IS THIS THE RIGHT PROGRAM FOR YOU?
This is not a one size fits all program. We all come from different places in life, we have different goals, and we all have different needs. Some of us are not making good choices with our nutrition and rarely exercise, while others eat clean and exercise 5-7 days a week and they are wondering why they are not getting the results they expect. The program will provide you with a custom nutrition program AND a custom workout program to fit your lifestyle.
I highly recommend that you be cleared by your physician to start this or any nutritional/fitness program.
HOW IS THIS PROGRAM GOING TO WORK FOR YOU?
The Refine YOU Program is a Fast, Attainable Transformation, a jump start to a healthy lifestyle. The program includes 1 prep week and 6 weeks of your customized nutrition and workouts for a total of 7 weeks. The program is all virtual and online however, one on one consults over the phone are available if needed. This program will teach you how to eat the right foods and give you efficient, effective workouts to help you reach your health and fitness goals. If your goal is fat loss, you are not alone. Most clients in the program want to lose fat. However, I do have clients that participate in the program to gain muscle (without losing weight) or to improve their health.
This program emphasizes “FAT” loss not “weight” loss because you want to build a lean, strong, healthy body. This basically means having less fat on your body and having a good amount of lean muscle, no matter your age. Muscle is more dense than fat. You can be tone, lean, and strong and weigh much more than you look! Therefore, the program will look more at how your clothes fit, how you feel, how many inches you lost, as well as the number on the scale.
tHE Nutrition Program
In order to reach your goal, you need to exercise and eat healthy nutritious foods that fuel your body appropriately. We will do this by keeping track of the carbohydrates, fats, and proteins you are eating. You need to be eating enough calories and the right kinds of calories, NOT severely cutting calories. What makes up the calories you eat is just as important and the number of calories you are eating. The goal is to eat the right amounts of carbohydrates, fats, and protein (the macro nutrients). This is to ensure you are giving your body the nutrition it needs to function properly and burn fat effectively.
Your nutrition program will be customized to your goal and your health needs.
All my clients are given goals of how many grams of carbs, fats, and protein to eat daily. These goals are different for each person to fit their level and their lifestyle. They keep track of their foods to meet these goals.
Some of my clients have a more simple nutrition program to follow initially. Adjustments are made as they go through the program. They eventually move gradually to more advanced techniques when they are ready, and if this is appropriate for them.
Clients that are more familiar with keeping track of their foods, or counting macro nutrients typically start at a more advanced level in the nutrition program. The techniques used are more strategic. This involves varying the amount of carbohydrates that are eaten depending on the workout of the day. This is called carb-cycling.
Intermittent fasting is another technique that is used in the program if it is appropriate for the client. This is implemented in the right way, at the right time, and when the body is ready. When this is done correctly, it will not result in severe hunger and can accelerate fat loss. In addition to aiding in fat loss, studies have shown that intermittent fasting has many benefits for your overall health.
This program will teach you how to keep track of what you are eating and how to make the right choices with your nutrition. Keeping track of your foods is KEY to LEARNING which foods are the right foods to eat. This is to ensure that you can continue to make healthy choices and maintain after you have reached your goals.
THE Fitness Program
My clients are given workouts at their level that can be done at home, or at the gym. These workouts can be done at any time and on any day that works in their schedule. The home workout routines are just as effective as the gym routines with minimal equipment (3 sets of dumbbells-light, medium, and heavy). Some of my clients have classes that they enjoy and they continue to work these classes in their workout schedule.
The goal is to exercise enough to get the results you want without overdoing it. Too much exercise at higher intensities can actually work against you. This can put too much stress on your body and may cause injury.
In the program, there are two days of cardiovascular workouts. This varies for each level but most of them contain HIIT workouts (High Intensity Interval Training). HIIT cardio workouts give you the best bang for your effort. You get a higher quality workout in a shorter amount of time. Many studies have demonstrated that HIIT workouts are far superior to steady state cardio in terms of calorie burn and fat loss. HIIT workouts are also shown to be beneficial in improving your metabolism.
The workouts also include 2-3 days of strength training. Building lean muscle will give you a strong, tone body, is good for your metabolism, and is beneficial for your overall health. Strength workouts are many times overlooked but are just as important in fat loss.
