Summer is right around the corner and if you’re like a lot of people in Los Angeles, the rainy winter kept you in sweats, on the couch and out of the gym.
Now that the sun is back you’ve noticed that all that Post Mate’s ordering has taken a toll and in a panic you’re wondering how quickly you can get ready to look good at the beach or hiking at Runyon this summer.
It actually won’t take as long as you think, but it’s going to take some careful planning and expert guidance.
Here’s how we helped our client Andy go from coach potato to shirt off at the beach confident in just 3 months.
When Andy reached out to us he was desperate. He had just booked a group surfing trip that his ex would be attending but hadn’t seen the inside of a gym in over a year and it was starting to show.
Panicked, he reached out to us and booked a no sweat intro.
Since he was super motivated we got right down to business and outlined a plan for him.
To add to the challenge, Andy is a busy attorney who regularly puts in 60 hour week so he didn’t have hours to spend at the gym each week.
As we do for all our clients we build Andy a custom program.
For Andy that meant;
– 4 workouts a week with a trainer so he would be getting the most out of each workout
– A custom nutrition program from his nutritionist so he would never have to guess what to eat
– Weekly progress check ins with his coach so that he would always know he was on track
We knew that if Andy did exactly what we outlined for him he would be able to drop around 25 lbs and 8% body fat in time for his trip which would dramatically change how he looked and how he performed on the surfboard.
Best of all we know he would feel super confident after putting in all that work.
Andy worked diligently with his coach and to speed up progress we added some weekly hikes in Malibu for some extra workouts.
Despite his busy schedule, Andy followed the plan to a “t” and at end of 3 months left for his trip feeling the best he had about his body in years ready to enjoy a week of surfing.
Andy’s progress isn’t common, but it is possible when clients truly commit to making serious changes.
So with summer around the corner and many people wondering how they’re going to get their summer body with just a few months to go here is our plan for getting your summer body.
Summer is just around the corner, and for many people in Los Angeles, that means it’s time to get ready for the beach and hiking trails.
But if you’re a busy professional, you may find it challenging to fit exercise and healthy eating into your busy schedule.
That’s why the only way to get in summer shape is to have a specific plan of action.
Luckily, the coaches at Virtuo have laid out the exact steps we take with our clients below.
Here are some steps you can take to achieve your goals:
Step 1: Start with a Free No-Sweat Intro Session
The first step to getting a summer-ready body is to schedule a free no-sweat intro session with one of our personal trainers or nutrition coaches. This session is an opportunity for us to get to know you and your goals, as well as for you to learn more about our programs and services. We’ll assess your fitness level and discuss any concerns or limitations you may have. With this information, we can create a personalized plan that works for you.
Step 2: Incorporate Strength Training into Your Workout Routine
One of the biggest mistakes people make when trying to get summer-ready is focusing solely on cardio. While cardio is important for burning calories, it’s not enough to sculpt a toned, lean physique. Strength training is essential for building muscle mass, which boosts your metabolism and helps you burn more calories even at rest. Plus, strength training gives you that lean, athletic look that’s perfect for summer. Our personal trainers can design a strength training program that targets your specific goals and fits your schedule.
Step 3: Clean Up Your Diet
You can’t out-exercise a bad diet. If you want to see results, you need to pay attention to what you’re eating. That doesn’t mean you have to follow a strict diet or deprive yourself of your favorite foods. It means making healthier choices and being mindful of portion sizes. Our nutrition coaches can help you create a meal plan that’s tailored to your goals and tastes. We can also provide guidance on healthy snacking and eating out.
Step 4: Stay Accountable with Regular Check-Ins
Staying accountable is key to sticking to your fitness and nutrition goals. That’s why we recommend regular check-ins with your personal trainer or nutrition coach. These check-ins can be in-person or virtual, depending on your schedule and preference. We’ll review your progress and make adjustments to your plan as needed. We’ll also provide motivation and support to keep you on track.
Step 5: Try Something New
Finally, don’t be afraid to try something new. Maybe you’ve always wanted to try boxing or yoga, but you’ve never had the time. Summer is the perfect time to explore new activities and challenge yourself. Our trainers can incorporate a variety of workouts into your plan to keep things fresh and exciting.
In addition to these steps, there are some surprising tips that can help you get summer-ready. For example:
- Drink more water. Staying hydrated can help you feel full and energized, and it’s essential for healthy skin.
- Get more sleep. Adequate sleep is crucial for recovery and weight loss. Aim for seven to nine hours of sleep each night.
- Don’t skip meals. Skipping meals can actually slow down your metabolism and make it harder to lose weight.
In conclusion, getting a summer-ready body doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. With the right plan and support, you can achieve your goals in just three months.
At Virtuo Fitness, we’re committed to helping you look and feel your best this summer.
