If you have been following our recent posts, we have really been focusing on the impact nutrition has with your results. We are not speaking of diets, crash programs, or boring programs. Basic nutrition guidelines is all you require on a consistent basis.
Roslyn Personal Trainer, Coach Frank Hatsis, did just that. Most fighters or martial artists will go on crash diets to make weight. However, Coach Frank trained hard and ate smart for a 90 day time period. By the time of his fight he weighed in at 157 lbs and 7.2% body fat.
Now some would label this as, “it was easy for him to do because he’s a fitness professional and a fighter” What most people do not realize is that Frank comes across similar challenges we all face. One of the major ones is TIME!
We make excuses that time holds us back or doesn’t allow us to prepare food, train during the week, or focus on ourselves.
Well Coach Frank holds 3 jobs, maintains a strict workout routine, and has to prepare his meals in advance to ensure his body builds and recovers properly. He travels to Manhattan from Long Island 3 days a week, coaches kickboxing classes, and trains clients one on one throughout the week.
It is evident that Coach Frank is very busy, but the difference is he prioritizes what’s important to him and sets time in his days to follow through with those priorities.
Here are some of the practices Frank followed throughout his 90 day training period:
1. Trained 6 days a week
2. Prepared meals in advance to support his training. He never missed a meal or starved himself
3. Made water a staple in his plan
4. Got rid of alcohol
His focus, determination, and sacrifice is what earned him his victory. I hope you realize you to can be victorious with your health as long as you recognize your excuses and make small sacrifices in the beginning to achieve your goals. Below is a short clip of Coach Frank’s fight:
