A Breakthrough in Connecticut

Posted in Uncategorized on December 24th, 2008 by Greg

Christmas eve has ended, and I am lying in bed reflecting on the day before it’s ligts out.

It was a great day spending time with the in laws for the first time here in Connecticut. I am very happy to have them in my life because of the values and family support they offer.

But the breakthrough occured before we even left brooklyn this morning.

My sister is getting married and has been struggling with the fact that her wedding is 9 months away and she has not been in the gym since we last trained a few weeks ago.

People tend to freak out when events like this occur. They feel so overwhelmed that no matter how much time they have, it’s never enough.

That’s a limiting belief that many require to drop. Freaking out and complaining about the situation will only make it worse and in the end you will be further away then where you started.

Here are the tips I gave jeanne to release her tension on

1. Cut the crap and focus on the end result. Stop worrying where you are and visualize where you want to be.
2. When you have a vision, write down goals you want to hit and break them down into smaller segments. Measure results at end of each month.
3. Stop making excuses why you aren’t going to the gym and eating healthy. Just accept you haven’t done what is necessary and move on.

Sometimes you have to be blunt and straight with people. Tell them what they need to hear and not what they want to hear.

So my objective, since it will be hard to physically coach her since distance, is to support her via phone and email to empower to complete small tasks.

I will keep you posted in how well she does with breakthrough methods via electronic means.

Do we all require a coach to physically be by our sides to accomplish great things, or is it possible to be great with mentoring skills via electronic means?

Dedicated to your results,

Greg Kalafatic

P.S. What breakthroughs did you have this week or month? What’s your vision for your health for 2009?

How To Make 2009 Your Healthiest and Best Year Ever

Posted in Inspiration, Motivational, Personal Development, Resolve and Motivation on December 19th, 2008 by RahzS

Focus is a key component to your overall success when it comes to your health and wellness.

Download you Free Copy Of The “Breakthrough Method” The Ultimate Goal Setting System

Focus is something I find many people lack, and it’s the number one reason so many people don’t reach there goals. If you’re seeking to have your Healthiest and Best Year Ever in 2009 it’s going to start with setting goals, and then focusing on the actions steps required to get the job completed. In the Ultimate Goal Setting System guide I walk you step by Step how to set goals and how to make sure you stick to the plan and most importantly accomplish your goals. In creating the system I used information I’ve learned from multiple goal setting trainings, and put together what I would consider the secret to accomplishing any and every goal you set. The system begins by explaining the SMART System and in part 2 of the Breakthrough Method you learn the How to which most people forget to teach. The step required to accomplish a goal is really the most important aspect of goal setting.

I beleive most fitness expert don’t teach goal setting because they don’t set goals themselves. If you don’t exercise or practice what you preach then you’re a fraud. In 2008 I set many goals and because I believe in being transparent with my loyal clients and customers I’m goal to share a few of my goals for 2008.

Coach Rahz’s Goals for 2008

  • Created my company BREAKTHROUGHS TO FITNESS INC.
  • Created my First Audio Inspirational CD
  • Co-Create The #1 Fat Loss Boot-camp On Long Island
  • Read over 23 Books in 2008 My Goal was 18
  • Got Certified as A JSL Wellness Coach
  • Personally Trained Clients over 1000 hours in 2008
  • Got my Body Fat % Under 4 percent
  • Squatted 340 Pounds
  • Bench Pressed 320 Pounds

I think you get the picture, setting goals and staying focused on them throughout a calendar year will assist you in having your best year ever.

Stay Tuned to read what my goals for 2009 are, and Yes they get crazy out of this world BIG. Think Big or don’t think at all…

Dreams are tomorrows coming attractions.

Thank you for allowing me to impact your life and assist you in creating the mind and body connection you deserve.

Breaktrough Competition, Long Island Personal Trainer-Day 13 Coach Greg Reveals Nasty Celebration Trap

Posted in Uncategorized on December 13th, 2008 by Greg

Today is December 13th, 2008 which marks the 13th day in this Breakthrough Bodybuilding Competition for the Breakthroughs To Fitness Coaches.

I am out here in Memphis, Tennesse celebrating my cousins wedding. Now we all know what celebrations mean; they usually contain high calorie, high fat meals, high empty calorie drinks, lose of inhibitions, irrational support system, and lack of focus on one’s health.

Now my point is not that celebrations are bad. They are essential to living and is a way to praise a special occassion. I am all for it. But there are always obstacles to be careful of.

Since Day 1 of this competition, I planned for this event. Unfortunately, I did not create a bullet proof mindset. Something that is extremely important.

I fell into the trap of the celebration estacy. I got overwhelmed and enjoyed a few meals that can potentially set me back. The great thing is that I was able to catch myself and use a tactic that we teach in our New Body Transformation Workshop.

That is the start fresh mindset. The concept behind this tactic is that no matter what situation you are in, or what type of mental hit was bestowed upon your body, you have control to start over.

So even though I enjoyed a few drinks, and a high calorie, high fat meal and dessert, I was able to recoup the next day. I brought with me pre-cooked meals that were high in nutrient value and had supportive nutrition. They were also about 250-350 calorie meals which is perfect for my ody composition.

So here are my top 5 tips of avoiding the celebration massacre:

  1. If traveling and staying in a hotel, bring a few pre-cooked meals (meals prepared by you not a grocery store box) that you can turn to when a time of hunger kicks in
  2. Drink plenty of water and even eat a high fibrous fruit or some almonds before a celebration meal (generally a dinner filled with cocktail hour, salad and bread, main course, dessert and after hour drinks).
  3. Try to stay active the entire day and devout 30-45 minutes to a full body workout (I reside on the 8th floor of the Marriot Residence Inn. 90% of the time I take the stairs up and down. Don’t be lazy unless you have a medical or physical condition)
  4. Ask for the support of like minded individuals (I asked my little sister to remind me of my competition each time she saw I wanted to enjoy a treat)
  5. Ask yourself every situation “Is this going to take further or closer to my goals?” (granted there are times you will take the wrong path, but thats ok if you incorporate the start fresh mindset)

I hope the above tips help, because they have assisted me in truly setting myself back to day 1.

What you can expect from these posts during the competition is complete honesty and transparency. My goal is to share with you my ups and downs, daily challenges, positive moments, transformation marks, breakthroughs, etc. You will see the good and the bad.

We are all human and fall into different traps. The goal is to learn from these situations so you can apply that knowledge to the next similar siutation you face.

It’s not about perfection. It’s about growing as a human being.


Dedicated to your results,


Greg Kalafatic

P.S. Last night was the rehearsal dinner which set me back. Tonigth is the big test. The actual wedding dinner. My goal is to have one social drink and eyeball my dinner to be about 400 calories with my dessert as fresh fruit. I will keep you posted on my task at hand :)

Oprah Battle Continues…

Posted in Breakthroughs To Fitness News, Long Island Health News on December 13th, 2008 by RahzS

Oprah needs a Breakthrough

Are you ready to Make 2009 Your Healthiest and Best Year Ever?

Oprah Deserves a Breakthrough

Oprah Deserves a Breakthrough

Oprah gained 40 pounds since 2007 and she’s upset at herself for allowing her weight to get out of control Again. She saying it has something to do with her thyroid, but I think it has more to do with her eating and busy schedule. She’s everywhere and trying to be everything to everyone. I wonder what Bod Green thinks of his most famous Client ballooning over 200 pounds. As a Health Professional I don’t Blame Bob, but He’s got to take some blame for not catching this before her weight got to this point.

Oprah is a role Model and really should work harder at keeping her weight under control. I have the same feeling about Health Professionals who are Fat and out of shape. How can you preach one idea and live a totally different way.

B2F Coaches walk the walk, and talk the Talk. Coach Greg and I are embarking on another fun learning experience and beginning training for a June 6th Body Building show. I will be releasing 20 to 25 Pounds of body Fat. I don’t recommend anyone release that type of weight unless they are training for a specific event like a Fitness Show. Everyone has a ideal body weight which is healthy. Health is the one factor when it comes to body weight. If you’re seeking to design your ideal body,seek professional assistance to help you design a plan to create the desire results. Releasing fat and increasing lean muscle is science.  Have the professional preform an fitness assessment which includes you RMR, Body Fat Percentage, and VO2 MaX Test. With this information you can really design a plan to reach you goal.

Oprah is going to have to start over and get it going for 2009. It’s never a better time than the beginning of a new year to set goals and begin to make it happen. Breakthroughs To Fitness is launching several informational products to assist you in Making 2009 you Healthiest and Best Year Ever…

Till Then get moving, eat healthy, and stay positive…

Come be apart of a Fun, Education show at the Harbor Link Golf Course Jan. 27th hosted by Breakthroughs To Fitness Inc.  This night will go down as the Biggest and Funniest Health Event on the North Shore Long Island in 2009.
