Top 3 Reasons to end Fitness Procrastination Forever

Are you in better shape today than you were 6 months ago? If not,why?

Procrastination to Get started and stick to your program is my educated guess.

Coach Rahz here,

Hope you’re doing well.

I’ve got a quick post that I feel will help you get your butts off the couch and moving in the direction of feeling better, and looking hotter. Over the last 11 years I’ve work with thousands of people, and heard every reason, and procrastination story possible. We are all procrastinators. Either consciously or subconsciously we delay, stall and put off various tasks that will make a positive difference in our lives. Procrastinating can be a learned trait from our parents or derived at birth. Habits are very hard to change without a conscious, deliberate action taken on our part.

Traditionally, procrastination has been associated with perfectionism, a tendency to negatively evaluate outcomes and one’s own performance. It is an intense fear and avoidance of judgment of your abilities by others. Heightened social self-consciousness, anxiety, recurrent low moods, and workaholism are the results of compulsory procrastination. In addition to those I’ve found that laziness, lack of coaching, knowledge, and accountability are all key reasons for most people to procrastinate when it comes to getting fit and Healthy.

Here’s my list of the top 3 reasons to end the procrastination game forever

1. Disease Prevention

  • Obesity – All time High in America, and headed toward being the number one killer
  • Increase risk of Heart disease, diabetes, stroke, mental illness, and many other health complications

2. Increased Self-Esteem

  • When your healthy and fit it is easier to feel good about yourself, your body image, and have more confidence and overall happiness.
  • Self esteem effects all areas of your life including personal and professional

3. The Fountain of Youth

We all know that getting older is a part of life, but it doesn’t have to be such a downward spiral like it is for so many people today. Simple exercising 3 to 4 days per week can give you all the benefits below. In some special cases you may require a few additional items to enhance your health, but for the most part, simplicity works very well.

  • Increase your Metabolism
  • Increase your daily energy
  • Look Younger
  • Move with ease
  • Less Pain
  • Better Sex Life
  • Career Advancements

When it comes to fitness there can be no someday, tomorrow, or next month you have to decide and get started. Your health is not going to wait for you to get ready, so if you don’t make the decision to jump in the water you just might never get in. I hope that doesn’t happen to you. It’s my personal mission to assist people everyday to get healthy, fit, and start living the exciting and adventurous lives they were born to live.

A client once said, “Nothing tastes, as good as fit feels.” I hope you get to feel that feeling one day. If you require some assistance that’s what we are hear to do. Give us a call, and leave a comment at the end of this post. I love replying to questions, and helping people get started on their health and fitness journeys.

Dedicated to your Results,

Kick Start Getting Your Body Back by doing a Master Cleanse

Day 7 & 8

Sunday was a breeze and Monday came and went. The master cleanse has been conquered. I’m not really experiencing any challenges anymore, no cravings, no hunger and it’s strange but i’m performing my daily duties as a fitness business owner and health coach with ease. At times I do get a bit irritable, but that’s the only side effect to the master cleanse that I felt lasted the entire 10 days. My advice would be to let the people around you know you’re cleansing and not to take your sharp remarks too serious. I’ve released 9 pounds in 8 days, and I’m estimating I’ll finish the 2 week mark at about 12 bounds released total. It’s a great kick-start to reclaiming my 10% lean body back. It’s amazing how I feel leaner and lighter in the 8 days. I was not aware of the amount of extra weight I was carrying around until it started melting off right after day one of starting the master cleanse. Well I’m off to bed so I can wake up to my wonderful salt water flush. Kidding :-)

Roslyn Personal Trainer Master Cleanse Experiment

Discipline is the Key to Success

Day 4

Discipline: The single word and character trait that separates the doers from the do nots.

Well, I’m clear through my first 4 days of fasting and cleansing, and today was awesome. I organized a golf outing with a few personal business contacts and friends, something I planned before I committed to doing the master cleanse. When I originally decided to organize this outing I thought it would be great to play golf, network, and have some good cheat food with a few beers. It turned out to be an outstanding day of golf, great conversation and lemonade mix for me. My contacts and friends ate hot wings, mozzarella sticks, grilled turkey burgers and sweet potato fries. In addition to all that good greasy, heart attack food they washed it down with cold dark beer. I share these details with you because I was cool with just hanging and talking. I didn’t have the hard cravings to indulge one bite. Yes, the food looked good, but my stomach never made a noise. I sat there and had a warm glass of Mint tea, and 8 oz of lemonade mix. I started this post with the word discipline, well that’s exactly what you have to have and develop to stay true to the master cleanse. It’s not superhero discipline, just set your goal to complete it and don’t allow temptation or cravings derail your success. I feel stronger, I have more energy, I wake up with total ease, and most importantly I know I’m doing something great for my body. If you’re on the fence about trying the master cleanse, get off the fence and give it a go, you’ll be happy you did by day 4. Talk to you tomorrow. By the way I played very well in temperatures that would make a desert man ask for a fan. This is power, get started today.

Day 5-Friday

Boredom vs. Hunger

Do you know the difference between boredom and hunger? During this amazing experience I’m learning this lesson daily. We tend to eat out of boredom and one of my personal opinions is that’s why America is so overweight. We’ve become emotional, boredom eating machines. I am proud to say today wasn’t hard at all. I’m going to keep this post quick and short because I think the weekend just might have a few surprise for me. I’m heading into day 6 and 7 and my first weekend doing my Master Cleanse and I expect it to be a little challenging because I’ll have less activities to occupy my time. Time and what to do with it is that difficult part of fasting because we’re so program to use food as a time consumer in our lives. Boredom creates craving and temptation. I’m sure I’ll have a few of these tempting moments but I know I’ll stay strong. Till Saturday be well, and start your master cleanse today.

Day 6

Four days remain in my first 10 day cleanse, and I’m getting a little tired of lemonade and water. I woke up today feeling good, no challenges or detox symptoms. I felt a bit tired later during the day, but I think that is due to my workout on Friday. If you’re trying to save money get started on the master cleanse today, I haven’t spent more than $3 dollars all week and that was for a water at my golf outing. I’m excited to do some cardio tomorrow and then chill. Sunday is my chill and relax day. I’ll weigh myself Monday to see what my 7 day release is and check my body fat. I don’t expect it to change too much because I know much of the weight I will release on this detox will be water and a little muscle. The goal for me is to slowly come off the detox on Thursday and Friday and continue a RAW FOOD experiment for 7 days following my master cleanse. The energy and clarity I have right now is amazing. My body feels better than it has in a long time, and I’m really excited to continue to explore this new way of living. Health is my life and I believe you have to experience different ways of living in order to find what works best for you. I personally encourage anyone seeking answers about detoxing or just becoming healthier to get started on something today. Find a mentor or a professional health coach to assist you and guide you in the right direction. My mentor was Peter Glickman because after reading his book, I was intrigued to find out more about the master cleanse and learn for myself the effects on your body. I hope that my ten days of chronicling my experience sheds some light on the master cleanse program and inspires you to find out more for yourself too. Speak with you tomorrow…Happy Cleansing!

Roslyn Personal Trainer-Master Cleanse Experiment

Posted in Breakthroughs To Fitness News, Get your Health questions Answered, Nutrition, Personal Development, Tips and Strategies on June 23rd, 2010 by RahzS

Are detox programs valid or not? Robin Quivers, Howard Stern’s sidekick, swears by the Master Cleanse while Beyonce recently admitted to following the Maple syrup diet. With all these celebrities jumping on the Master Cleanse diet band wagon, I had to weigh in and see for myself what all the talk is about.

As a professional health coach I feel it is my obligation to the people I service to be in the know on all things dealing with health and fitness, within reason of course. We all know there are tons of products, diets, exercise equipment gimmicks, and fake health professionals just trying to make a quick buck. After learning that a good friend had completed the Master Cleanse several times and spoke highly of the results he experienced, I was intrigued to learn more about this program and go through it for my own personal research. After I read Peter Glickman’s book, Lose Weight, Have More Energy & Be Happier in 10 Days, I was pumped for my 10 day discovery into the mystery of the now growing fad called the Master Cleanse.

Night before Starting

As instructed by Peter Glickman the fast starts with a glass of laxative herbal tea. I don’t mind the tea because I usually enjoy a nice cup of tea before I go to bed. I have to admit this tea doesn’t taste like my Earl Gray or premium green tea.

Day 1-Monday, June 21, 2010

Woke up at 5:30 am and prepared my first of 10 salt water flushes. I didn’t realize 1 quart was 4 cups, and this didn’t go down so easy. I waited 30 minutes before having my first lemonade mix of the day. The fun began again when I mistakenly added 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper instead of 1/10 teaspoon, needless to say it hit me like a ten ton bomb exploding in my mouth.

After training my first client of the day and figuring out the right amounts to add to my lemonade mix, I was off and running.

I experienced slight headaches throughout day 1, and some light food cravings. I really thought it was going to be much worse that it was but it is only day 1 and I have 9 more remaining.

My only question is should I workout or not? This is a mystery, but my gut says no. Maybe tomorrow I’ll try a quick full body hyrid workout just to burn a few calories and get a little pump. So till tomorrow, it’s laxative tea time and a few minutes of downtime.

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.

Karolina Kurkova Dubbed ‘Sexiest Woman In The World’

Posted in Just a Serious Topic, Personal Development on November 21st, 2008 by RahzS
Karolina Kurkova

Karolina Kurkova

Breakthroughs debates why are we ranking woman instead of simply respecting them.
Ok, Karolina is dubbed the sexiest woman in the world, and nowhere in the blog post today did it say anything about who she really is. As a reader I would rather learned more about about Karolina the person, her interest, favorite foods, and of course her fitness regiment. We’ve become a society that that spends more time praising and worshiping celebrities than respecting the careers of people who are really making a difference in the world everyday. For example how many teachers got a standing ovations, or Huge contract increases like Johan Santana’s $137.5 million, six-year contract with the New York Mets.
Are our values just a little confused?Should we be spending more time building women up and giving them the respect they deserve over posting how sexy we believe they are. I’m a big fan of attractive women, but there are many resepctful ways of expressing how we value women then labelling them on sexuality.
Is this picture motivating or degrading?

Is this picture motivating or degrading?

Is is what we want people to believe is sexy?

Will this picture motivate young girls to have high self-esteem?

Does Karolina exhibit a Healthy woman?

Does this picture teach young boys that women are more than objects?

Just a few questions that this blog post bought to my mind. I’m curious what question my blog brings to the readers mind. If you have a comment leave it in the box below, and I’ll reply directly to you personally…

What does it take to have a Breakthrough mindset?

Have you ever thought to yourself, wow that person is always excited? What does he/she have that I don’t? Have you ever met someone and you knew anything and everything they touch would turn to gold? Well I have and it didn’t take me long to figure out that  the reason they were so excited, happy, and super successful was that they all created and maintain a breakthrough Mindset. These characteristics not secrets but simple and anyone  can learn and master if they practice and take action. The challenge is that most people say they want to have a breakthrough mindset, but aren’t willing to put the action in play to develop the traits of the ultra successful people. In this brief post I’ll give you the Five Factor of developing a Breakthrough Mindset. But before I do let me ask you this, Do you Deserve to know these Five Factors? Will you take the information and put it into action or just read it and let it float away into space? I hope you’re a action person and ready to make the necessary step to achieving a breakthrough mindset.

Developing a Breakthrough Minset

  1. Focus on the Present…Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, Live in the Now…
  2. Write Set Solid, Realistic Goals
  3. Write your Plan out “Journal”
  4. Take Action….Action Means doing something to move you closer to your Goals
  5. Read, Listen, and Get Mentored by others Who Have Been successful at what you’re striving for!

I will be expanding on these five factors in a New Ebook Coming early 2009…Stay Tune…

4 Keys To Developing the The NewBody Tranforamation Mindset

Posted in Inspiration, Motivational, Personal Development, Resolve and Motivation, Wellness on October 29th, 2008 by admin

 4 Keys To Developing the The NewBody Tranforamation Mindset

“What the Mind can conceive and believe the mind can achieve.”

Napoleon Hill in His Great Book Think and Grow Rich

What is mindset?  We hear the word used everyday in different areas of our lives, but what does it mean to you? Here’s what I found online; A fixed state of mind; A fixed mental attitude or disposition that predetermines a person’s responses to and interpretations of situations. They both work for me. A persons mindset determines how he or she will react or respond in a certain situation. How a person reacts is a key fundamental when it comes to creating the body you desire.

As Coach Greg Kalafatic posted in a previous posting on Saturday October 25, I have transformed my body many times, and I will not begin to tell you it was easy. Simple yes, because I used the 4 keys to a Newbody transformation.  In this post I will cover each of these fours keys, and in addition, I will offer 15 minutes of Wellness Coaching to anyone who comments and leaves feedback about this post.

The 4 Keys To The New body Tranformation Mindset

  1. Decide
  2. Create a Plan
  3. Visualize the End
  4. Never Quit

A simple system to achieve anything you desire in life.

You’re going be amazed at how simple it is to create the body you desire. This system can be used in any area of your life. It has assisted me in my career as a Top Wellness Coach, Bodybuilder, and becoming the person that attracts great people into my life.

How to use the 4 Keys:

  • First you have to Decide what it is you really want to achieve. Deciding is the starting point of all your success’s or failures.  
  • Second step is Creating the Plan. The plan is super important because without it you will be like a sailboat with no sail. A great quote I love to share is, “Fail to Plan, and you Plan to Fail.” The plan give you a step by step map to follow and keep you going in the right direction.
  • Third is Visualizing the End. I can’t stress this enough. Visualization has assisted so many successful people because it works. The subconscious mind is super powerful, and we can use it to our benefit if we simply trust it. In order for this to work you have to do it daily, and always put yourself in the positive state of mind prior to your success visualization session. It doesn’t have to be long, just 5 minutes daily will greatly assist you in your process to reach the new body transformation you’re striving to achieve. Keeping your  End in Mind throughout the transformation process will keep you focused when times get rough and I promise you they will.  
  • Last but not least Never Quit. Quitting is never an option. When you set your sights on a goal, always finish it. Life is about finishing what you start. The main reason we have so many diets, gyms, and Bullshit Weight loss systems is because people are always seeking the next best Gimmick. Use the 4 keys to a New Body Transformation with the assistance of your B2f Team and you’ll be on the Road to creating a amazing body and mind Transformation…
