“Be My Fitness Wingman” Facebook Contest

Here’s a fun contest that I’ve wanted to do for SO long. As you know, fitness is something that is very important to me. It’s also a great way to boost confidence. Having a healthy body means having a healthy mind. But, in a world filled with excuses, we always try to convince ourselves why we can’t workout or get a membership at a gym.

“The gym is too far from my house.”

“I can’t workout at home.”

“I’m too busy to workout or go to a gym.”

“A gym membership is too expensive.”

As someone who has been guilty of these excuses in the past, I understand where you’re coming from. What I have realized is that you make a choice. You either do it, or you don’t. Working out and exercising is either a priority or it isn’t. And it will show. You may not have as much energy throughout the day. As a guy, your testosterone level will decrease and so will libido. You may get a little plusher in places you don’t admire. You don’t feel as confident or sexy as you used to. These should be the excuses you make to GO to the gym or to exercise.

I’ll be brief with my motivational speech and just announce that every month, I’ll be giving away a one-month membership to Revolution Fitness. This contest will be for Boston locals only (sorry, but don’t worry, I’ll have another contest for everyone else later this week!).

So, what is it that you have to do? 

One thousand pushups. In one try.

No, actually all you have to do is be a Facebook Fan. That’s it. So if you’re not a Fan of the Wingman, go join now and you’ll automatically be entered to win. A winner will be chosen at random at the end of the month and if he or she is a local, he or she wins! It’s that simple. 

So go join the Fan Page and give me a shout out! 

If you don’t know about Revolution Fitness, here’s a brief description of why I love to workout there. 

Revolution Fitness is located in the South End of Boston. It IS your neighborhood gym. But not only is this gym filled with incredible trainers, instructors, and a friendly fitness staff, there's a ton training equipment that will make your workout unique every time. Programs vary such as CrossFit, RevFit’s unique Dynamic Fusion and their new Helix group class. Inventive training and one-of-a-kind classes are mixed with state-of-the-art workout machines. Members can find everything for a fun, effective workout in a friendly, energetic, and professional setting. This place is the real deal. 

And as a bonus, since I am all over Boston, I will hand out one FREE day pass to the gym every day. All you have to do is come up to and say, “Be my fitness wingman.” This day pass will give you full access to everything in the gym, including classes that they offer. 

Not bad, huh? Well, let’s get started!

Fitness Update

It's been a while since I've blogged about fitness. Being on vacation took me for a trip. I actually did eat really well, considering the circumstances and I was able to exercise and swim but still not the same. Since I've been back, I've only exercised once. My weight is still the same (around 170) but I don't feel so hot physically. I will be back on the saddle starting Tuesday, when I'm working out with Jason Resse and we're hoping to get some more content on here. Stay tuned for updates.

How Food is 90% of How You Exercise

Before I head out to yoga, I wanted to discuss nutrition a little bit. It has always been the thing that prevented me from really looking and feeling my best. I admittedly just have a severe lack of discipline when it comes to eating well. I am hoping that with the help of Revolution Fitness, I can finally find that discipline and eat better so that I can see the results I want.

By doctor’s opinion, I am the epitome of perfect health. Numbers are exactly where they should be. That’s great to hear since I feel as though I don’t eat as well as I wish I could. So far working with Jason Reese from RevFit, he’s helped open my eyes to proper dieting as they pertain to the goals I would like to get accomplished.

Starting today, he wants me to keep track of what I eat and when. That way, he’ll be able to take a look at it and see what I may or may not be doing wrong. He says that sometimes it’s not what you eat, but how much and when you eat it. He proposed a reframe in how I should ration my meals and I’ll talk about that in a video tomorrow. In the meantime, I took the liberty of keeping my own food log in the first week and as you’ll be able to see, I have my good days and my not-so-good days.

We are going to see how things change once Jason can better help me adjust my eating habits and help me reach the goals I want to reach, which I will introduce to you in a video tomorrow.

As you can see, I am NO expert when it comes to fitness and nutrition. If you have any questions, let me know and I’ll relay them to the RevFit team for them to answer here. Or you can ask them yourself on Twitter. There, you can find Jason Reese, Nina Botelho and Derek Christensen who will answer anything and everything.

Tomorrow's video will talk about a computer program that we used to estimate my body fat and can tell you EXACTLY what you need to do to reach your goals and when you'll reach them.
