Breaktrough Competition, Long Island Personal Trainer-Day 38 Coach Greg Uncovers Motivation

Posted in Coach Greg Kalafatic Workout Video on January 14th, 2009 by Greg

When it comes to having a breakthrough in your workout, many people listen to heavy music or something upbeat. That gets you going for the short term, but what about after the workout? As a Long Island personal trainer, I take a different approach to make sure I maintain a focused mind even after my workout is completed.

What keeps you motivated?

Watch the movie below to see what motivates Coach Greg beyond his workouts:

Coach Greg getting in the game with a hybrid training module: Tabatas + Heavy Lifting

Posted in Coach Greg Kalafatic Workout Video on October 12th, 2008 by admin

A famous quote has stated that “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.”

Does that really make sense?

Absolutely!!!

I have noticed that everytime I fail to make a workout plan for myself and goals, my results are minimal. Just showing up to the gymand winging the information in my head just doesn’t cut it anymore. My mistake was putting all my effort into my clients programming and forgeting about myself. But how can I be a leader as Long Island’s top personal trainer and eventually worldwide if I do not take care of my programs like I do my clients.

My promise to myself is to create my programs like I would my clients. All my goals will be spelled out, times frames will be set, and a contract will be written. Right now my ultimate goal is to increase my maximal strength for a select few exercises, while maintaining a 10-11% body fat. Now this is a very difficult program, because it requires a strong discipline with exercise and nutrition combined.

The other difficult aspect is I will do this without counting calories. I will truly listen to how my body feels and see how effective this plan will be. In life you have to do trial and error. Absorb what works and discard what doesn’t. This is a huge test for me, and I look forward to dominating it!

Take a look below at what I mean by Hybrid Training (using multiple modalties in a single workout)

First part of workout:

 

Second part of workout:

Fat Blasting Music System

Posted in Coach Greg Kalafatic Workout Video, Get your Health questions Answered, The B2F Wellness Show on September 27th, 2008 by admin

The B2F WELLNESS SHOW Hosted By Coach Rahz Slaughter It’s been one of those days you wish you had more often. Today I woke up feeling great. Got into my very cool 2008 Honda Fit which is this amazing (Vide Blue Pearl) color and drove to my private training studio. My client was right on time, which is a surprise for a 7am Saturday morning. We jumped right into a serious 50 minutes iron lifting, sweat dripping, legs burning, why am I doing this to myself workouts. O’yeah I forgot the best part it was payday too :-) $$$. Then I change clothes, put my lifting gear on and the story begins all over. I did 3 setsof tabata’s at 20/10. All that means is I did a various exercises for 20 seconds and rested for 10 seconds in between. When you do this type of work you continue this 20/10 split for 8 rounds which adds up to 4 minutes of exercise per set. If you’ve never tried this really fun fat burning workout, then you’re going to be surprised because it is alot harder than it sounds. If you don’t believe me check back to this blog in a few days, I’m going to post a Tabata workout for beginners. Tabata’s are especially great for burning fat, and increasing your lung capacity.

Anyway Back to my Awesome day, Next I went home and caught up on a ton of Admin. work, that had been building…

We’ll now I want to go for a ride, so that’s what I’m going to do…It’s great not having a worry in the world. Stay tuned for more details on tabata workouts, and crazy awesome days from Long Island’s #1 wellness coach rahz Slaughter.
