A transformation is more than weight loss

A successful transformation program is only partly about Weight Loss

In the health and fitness industry, the area of TRANSFORMATIONS can refer to many outcomes. Mostly though, people will associate a ‘transformation’ program as exclusively a ‘weight loss’ program. 

It’s a commonly held notion also that losing weight alone will result in satisfaction and a ‘happy’ outcome!

But, does just losing weight really equal happiness, satisfaction, complete wellness or a sense of purpose? 

How about strength, fitness and physical confidence – will losing weight alone make you feel stronger, fitter and more competent? 

Are these even factors that are considered part of the outcome of most weight loss programs? 

Being totally honest, almost anyone can lose weight by not exercising and starving themselves or at best, following a well balanced, healthier eating lifestyle. I’m not discounting weight loss by any kind of process, as it can still be challenging and rewarding. If you really want to go under the knife – that is your choice!

However, and here is my professional point of view; losing weight to look leaner is only ONE part of a greater package of what a transformation program can be.

Losing unwanted body fat, feeling great, moving better, feeling strong and more capable and resilient against all that life can throw at you – I believe these are the ingredients of a real transformation. But, just losing weight from calorie restriction is not going to result in that. You can’t diet yourself strong.

In a recent study, people were assessed following popular intermittent fasting protocols. I do like intermittent fasting, but I also like to exercise. These people fasted only. No exercise. While both lost fat weight, both lost muscle tissue. What’s the problem? Muscle is the engine that continues to burn calories. If we lose muscle, we lose the capacity to continue to burn calories, therefor requiring us to consume fewer calories – or food. Who wants that? Food is great. 

A successful transformation program will include healthy, sustainable eating habits – and real food – along with a well designed exercise program that addresses aerobic fitness and strength, safely. 

Balanced nutrition, exercise and planning = successful transformation

Being fitter, stronger, happier in our skin is being in a position of celebrating our lives, our lifestyles and looking forward to tomorrow – who really wouldn’t want that? 

Summing it up:

Performance is not something often considered when looking for or engaging in a transformation program, but maybe if you consider the points I raised above, maybe you do want to move better, stronger and feel better in your own skin. 

If you’re nodding your head and thinking ‘Yes, I want to be fitter, stronger and happier with my physique’, let’s talk.

Below are examples of people just like you and me who dedicated 12 Amazing weeks to transforming their lifestyle, physique, strength and fitness.

Beyond the six-pack, Nicci progressed from doing machine pull downs to performing pull ups with a 32kg kettlebell hanging off her waist along with a very strong personal best deadlift of 140kg!
This kind of strength improvement is not uncommon for Amazing 12 graduates.

New At FitStrong

Introducing the Amazing 12 Brisbane

Quick back-story:

I’ve been a health and fitness professional since 1997.

In that time I’ve ventured from regular run-of-the-mill gym activities like group exercise, circuit training and centre management. I new that wasn’t what I was looking for or destined for.

Moving to Australia opened doors to explore other areas, especially areas operated in by the most successful trainers. Not financially, but in terms of results, health and physical gains.

Kettlebells and the teachings of Pavel Tsatsouline provided underpinning principles of strength. OrIginal Strength taught how movement can be restored. MovNat inspired us to contextualise our training to reflect on life’s needs.

Whilst I know I can help people feel great with movement and strength, one missing link always bugged me though.

Feeling good feels good, and moving better is a part of that. But I have to recognise that many people want to feel better about how they perform as well as how they ‘feel in their own skin and clothes’, and this includes what they see in the mirror. Some people will tell me they don’t see who they really are.

Enter the Mentor from Centaur

For years I’ve admired my fellow Irishman Paul McIlroy who runs an old-school gym called Centaur – the centre for all things strength and conditioning, creating super strong individuals – and his transformation program, The Amazing 12.

Two months ago I met with his program director via zoom and got the ball rolling to become a certified Amazing 12 coach. After a deep study block of 3 weeks (80 hours) I am now certified to operate and coach the Amazing 12 here in Brisbane. The first for our city and state and only the 3rd to become certified in Australia!

The Amazing 12 offers unprecedented body transformations in a surprisingly short period of time (12 weeks) every time, no matter your age, condition, or genetics. There are no special dietary purchases, required – just simple wholesome nutrition. This is not a bootcamp, or a train ‘till you drop program – it’s just perfectly individualised programming with a simple template. It can be called simple now, but it’s taken 15 years of fine tuning and the programming genius of Paul. This is not solely a weight loss program, it’s a physical strength, fitness and mindset transformation program.

The lives of 10000+ people have been impacted by their participation in the Amazing 12.

I am proud to announce that The Amazing 12 Brisbane will be a new offering from FitStrong in only a matter of weeks, both as a small group program and a one-to-one service.

I totally understand that this commitment might not be for everyone, but you the reader, keep in mind anyone you know who might fit the bill – please forward this for their consideration.
