Special post about a member of the Wired Fitness Family……
This email comes to you both as an opportunity and as sad note. Most of you have worked with Amber, personally in her classes, while visiting my classes, or helping out on Saturdays over the past 6 years. Over the years both of us hardly ever took days off, years went by without vacations, all for the love of what we do and the people we care about, our clients. Recently Amber has been pre-diagnosed with several devastating health conditions that is making it difficult to do what she loves, teaching and changing lives. She has put on her game face, day after day, some more difficult than others, but, still tries to show up to the people that depend on her in spite of her feeling like crawling back in bed and sleeping all day. Over the past couple of years she has had back to back traumas, a surgery before her pregnancy, and risky-bed-ridden pregnancy, and two additional surgeries afterwards. Along with this, she had numerous family issues adding to the stress. Medical professionals suggested she take time off to heal, but, Amber never wanted to let her people down so she rushed her recovery and returned to work shortly after all. We feel these traumas to her body, and the lack of proper recovery has resulted in what she is experiencing now. Her immune system has broken down and she needs to take a couple of months off to be stress free, no additional responsibilities, while relaxing and trying to get her body, life and spirit back. I won’t go into detail on what she has been diagnosed with since these were all preliminary diagnoses. I never accept the first opinion, and feel that through diet, exercise, and positive vibrations we can change the path our lives take. We all know Amber, she is stubborn like me! She won’t sit on the sidelines and take defeat as an option. In my eyes, this stubbornness is making her symptoms worse and lately she is finding she can’t teach and be there for everyone like she has over the years.
Amber has been a part of my life, my families, and yours for days, weeks, months and years. So I decided to have a raffle to raise funds to help her take time off so she can take care of her kids, seek holistic treatment, relax and recover far away from all the stress she faces here comfortably. In this economy, being self-employed, if you don’t work, you don’t eat, so she fears being away from classes, while still providing for her children. In addition, these holistic treatments are expensive and she can’t afford these, while taking a break.
We will be raffling off a ’10-Session Punch Card’ and a ‘Saturday 10-Session Punch Card’. The raffle tickets will be sold at $10/ea and you can buy as many as you’d like to have a chance to win all 3 prizes. For those that want to help her outside of the raffle, here is a DONATE link via PayPal. We will be selling Raffle tickets in classes and online via the DONATE link (add a special note when you donate with ticket amount). Raffle will be held on Saturday, November 2, 2013 at our Bootcamp Class.
I hope this will help her get her healthy self back! We miss that Amber!
Your Trainer & Friend
If you have been trying to lose weight, you’ve probably tried exercising. You’ve also heard me say that low intensity cardio is NOT ideal when it comes to fat loss.
You need to focus on high intensity exercise (HIIT, Bootcamp, etc…). Today, I’m gonna bust another common exercise myth:
“You must work out every day to see results.” Have you ever fallen for this myth?
Don’t worry. Most people have at some point. To be completely honest, this myth is really just a technique that salesmen use to sell gym memberships and exercise equipment.
Let me start by saying… this is NOT true.
You DO NOT need to exercise every day to see results. In fact, exercising every day can actually be downright harmful. It can make it harder to burn fat. Here’s why – Training every day doesn’t allow your body the time it needs to recover, so you end up overtraining.
What happens when you overtrain?
Fat-storing hormones flood your system!
That’s why ‘just eating less’ doesn’t work either. When you just eat less, you trigger your body’s starvation mode.
When this happens, your body does everything it can to hold onto fat… because it doesn’t know when it might get to eat again.
When you exercise too often, the SAME THING happens. In other words, exercising every day will DESTROY your results and your chances of ever getting a flat, firm stomach.
Try training for no more than four days a week. If four workouts per week doesn’t change your body fast, your program stinks!
It’s hard doing it on your own, at Wired Fitness San Diego we have created a culture of motivation in our fitness bootcamp classes! We motivate you into learning how to get fit for life and help you maintain this progress over time. We track your progress by measurements and before and after pictures while participating in our outdoor boot camp training programs. Our convenient schedule of morning and after work classes help to ensure you can fit us in your daily routine. We suggest you attend class a minimum of three days per week, although you can participate as much as you want with our unlimited packages! Your training journey starts with a free class or consultation. From there your trainer will set a schedule for you based on your goals, and other activities you are participating in.
Your program will include:
- A constantly varying workout regimen
- HIIT interval styled training sessions
- Body assessment & composition testing (Optional)
- Personalized macro & nutrition plan (Optional add-on)
San Diego’s ‘Best’ Outdoor Fitness Bootcamp Class
San Diego Bootcamp, Group Fitness Class, Personal Training, Youth Fitness
Best one hour workout ever!!! I’m a runner, and I go to the gym on a regular basis, but it’s nothing compared to the this boot camp. I’ve never been a group workout person, but now I can say I’m officially a fan. The trainers are great and friendly, always there to help, at least two trainers per session that has a group more than 5 persons. Bryan, Alvin and Amber are awesome trainers. Come out and try it and you will see it’s the best investment on yourself ever.
I really enjoy these classes! I’ve never been one much for working out in a gym- throughout my life I’ve been a very active outdoors hiking, bicycling and swimming. I was wary about trying a bootcamp but running a full time business and keeping up with a half acre yard and home remodeling led to an out of shape body so I had to do something! Surprisingly, I really enjoy these classes. My trainer has great energy and a wonderful spirit. And I like being outside so the number of classes that Wired offers and various locations makes it easy to find a class that fits my schedule. At Wired Fitness, every class is completely different and the exercises are challenging, but fun! The variety of exercises really gets the full body and I feel great afterwards. I’ve only been going for about four weeks and have already lost 10 lbs. I’m very pleased with the results!
Absolutely love it! I have been going to Wired Fitness’ Boot Camp in Mission Bay for over 6 months and absolutely love it! It sounds cliche, but I really have seen great results from going 3 times a week. I love the group setting, how closely Bryan watches our form, and how challenging it is. I like that they create the hard workouts for me! I have been to classes with Alvin as well, and love them all! Boot Camp isn’t for everyone. So, come with realistic expectations of your fitness level and what boot camp means…after all, it is named after military workouts.
They can customize the workouts…. I’m a bit of a fitness junkie, you name it, I’ve tried it, 5k’s 10k’s half, MMA & yoga. To provide some perspective, I do train in crossfit as well. In my late 30’s, so I am well familiar with intense workouts and regimens. I can honestly say that through their bootcamp session Every class is different, so your body never gets used to the workouts, an intense 1 hour session of constant cardio, strengthening and agility workouts that truly push you to your limit. What’s also great is that they can customize the workout to your needs. For example, I have an ailment (knee) that prevent me from doing certain workouts. Instead, they have me do alternate exercises that work me just as hard, if not harder. What’s also great is that the classes consist of people vary across the spectrum. You have people who are avid marathoners working out with people who have never visited a gym before. It’s a great mix of folks!
Five Stars on My List! I have been with these guys for 6 years now and I look forward to working out with them every single time. They make it fun and challenging. Working out should be fun for me, otherwise I would not want to do it. The other thing is that these guys care. Often Bryan, Amber, or Alvin gets on my case about my form. I don’t take it personally because I know that they are looking out for my best interest. Sometimes Bryan makes me do an exercise over (yes, he’s a meanie. hahaha), but I love it because I know that he really cares about my form and knowing that if I do it right, I will get the result that I want. So it shows that he and his team really care about their clients. This is called BOOT CAMP. Bryan and his team will push you to be the best and you are expected to work out during your 1 hour there. If you want to get results (i.e., losing weight, gaining muscle, gaining strength, building up your endurance, and have tons of energy the next day), then these guys can help you to achieve that, but, you will have to make a commitment to a regular schedule, otherwise, you will waste your money and your time.
Kind to all levels of physical ability… I started with Wired Fitness almost a year ago. At that time I was so out of shape that I thought I was going to pass out in the first class. What had me coming back for more was my friend who had purchased a coupon and needed a work out buddy. We still are work out buddies and still loving Wired Fitness. Bryan is actually a marshmallow with a gruff coating. He is more than willing to work with clients both financially and alternating exercises when needed, but his job like all the instructors is to get the clients to push themselves out of their comfort zone and regain some sense of physical and proud moments of achievements. I may be the oldest and if I am honest with myself I still am not where I want to be, but at least am not sitting in front of the TV Tuesday’s and Thursday’s. I encourage all you want to feel good about themselves to come down to MB and try a class. I go to the class from 6:30pm to 7:30pm, the time goes by so fast sometimes it is 7:45pm. Alvin my instructor along with the others truly value what they do and I find them to be passionate, professional and kind to all levels of physical ability and ages.
I saw immediate changes… When I first started working out with Bryan at Wired Fitness I was injured and couldn’t do some of the exercises. Bryan was quick to modify the exercises for me. Now he watches my form to make sure I do the exercises correctly so I don’t re-injure myself. The workout challenges your endurance and your strength. I saw changes happen in my ability from the first class.
Keeps me engaged!You name it, I’ve tried it. Gym memberships, P90X, Insanity, Zumba, yoga, etc… and they’ve all ended with the same common theme…a little less money in my pocket and a lack of results. Wired Fitness is the one workout system that has kept me engaged and has given me the results that I was looking for. Overall, in the short six months that I’ve been attending classes, my energy has increased, my body fat has dropped and I am much stronger. The classes are great and are always changing, keeping things fun and fresh; the trainers are extremely motivating – coaching your form, keeping you honest and ensuring safety comes first. Whether you are a beginner or advanced athlete, the trainers recognize your abilities and will make sure you get the workout you are looking for. I’d recommend Wired Fitness Bootcamps to anyone who is serious about achieving the results they have been searching for.
Mindful of my limits I have been working out with Wired Fitness off and on for about 5 years. After I had my first child I was looking for something fun to help get rid of the extra baby weight. I started with classes at Mission Bay with Bryan. Bryan is an excellent instructor who will push you to your limits, while always keeping in mind your fitness level. I had a c-section with my first son so Bryan was mindful of my limits and kept a close eye on my form and gave me modifications to help strengthen my core. As soon as they opened a class in the South Bay (Eastlake) I switched over since it is more convenient. Amber is AWESOME! her classes are a mix of all fitness levels. Now that I have been going twice a week for 7 months my arms are toned, my core can just about handle anything, and my endurance is off the charts (for me). Nevertheless, I still find myself sore a day or two after and exhausted after each work out. They are always different and always challenging. And you are outside…yay…no boring gyms. I have made some great work out buddies in Amber’s classes. We all push each other and encourage new-combers to keep coming. I recommend Wired Fitness to every one I know. You have never had a work out like this…come out and try it. You will be addicted like I am.
I’m Addicted! As I go on my third year with Wired Fitness I can honestly say I AM ADDICTED! When I first started the classes I had not done any type of physical activity since I had my first son 9 years ago and was still carrying around the baby weight. In just a few short months the pounds and inches melted off. All 20 of them! Since then I have had my second son and was able to maintain my works out through my 5th month of pregnancy. When I came back to the classes 8 weeks after having my son it was difficult but the trainers catered to my needs and were able to help me lose all of my pregnancy weight in 3 months!! I’m in better shape now than I have ever been. All the trainers are great and cater to every level of fitness. A special shot out to Amber at Eastlake who always keeps me motivated and challenged 🙂
