Judgement Day

It's official, there are 12 weeks to Memorial Day Weekend (Judgement Day) - which marks the start of summer here in the US.It's usually celebrated with a day at the beach or the pool, a barbeque--and--gulp!--Shirts off, and swimsuits on.

Yep, your physique will be revealed to The World.

How do you want to look by then?

You think you'll be looking beach or pool ready when that weekend comes around?

Are you going to feel ashamed or embarrassed to take your shirt off or wear your bikini?

If you want to look good and feel proud of your body, you not only have time to get in shape by that weekend, but possibly be in the best shape of your life. But you need to start now! Don't delay.

There are three key components to any successful fat loss program. Exercise, Nutrition and Cardio. Here are some helpful resources to get you started to good health, to a new body and to a new you.


-For some of the best online exercises, full with different fitness goals and sport specific exercises, check out Workoutpass. Workoutpass will help you get fit anywhere. Whether your working out at your gym, or decide to workout at home.


-Last week I shared videos of Dr. Berardi with you on nutrition. Nutrition is key to any fat loss program. Here is a great article to give you some insights on good nutrition. Also, check out Dr. Berardi's Gourmet Cook Book. It provides simple great tasting foods to help you lose fat and look and feel your best!


-If your bored with your cardio program and would like to lose fat fast, try High Intensity Interval Training.

If your using a treadmill, begin with a 5-10 minute warm up. Than for 1 min. run or if you walk, apply the incline to increase the intensity. The idea is to get your heart rate up.

After 1min of high intensity cardio, slow the treadmill down or bring the incline back to flat and recover for 2min. Continue to do your cardio with 1min. high intense, 2min. recovery. Repeat for 3-5 times. End with a 5min. cool down.

Do this high intensity interval training 3-6 times per week depending on your level of fitness.

There you have it! A game plan that will get you in shape and heads turning by Judgement Day;)

Simple! Yet not easy. But definitely doable!

I believe in you that you can make a change in your health and the way you look and feel.More importantly, do you believe in yourself to make that change?
