The biggest number of clients I see in my training studio are moms.
More specifically, the biggest number of clients I see in my training studio who want to
lose weight are moms.
A lot of dads are aloof to their growing stomach and don’t really care if they’re gaining
weight, moms on the other hand not only want to lose weight, but they also want to be able to have the energy to
keep up with their kids and have the energy to make it through the day without collapsing.
Plus, they want to look good, which is perfectly fine. That’s one of the primary reasons I do
fat loss workouts. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look better in your clothes and naked...vanity is
However, many moms are indoctrinated with some faulty teachings when they enter my
They’ve been told for years that in order to lose weight they need to focus on cardio and fad
diets, which does nothing but lead to yo-yoing and heartache.
Moms need to stop focusing so much on cardio and start working out for shorter periods of
time, and more intensely. You’ll get a lot more "bang for your weight loss buck". You’ll get to spend more time
with your family. You won’t have to worry about heading to the gym where you have to worry about getting stared at
or feeling stupid for doing some of the exercises, or not knowing how to use all those machines.
Weight loss for moms shouldn’t be overly complex or complicated. You’ve got enough things to
worry about, you shouldn’t have to worry about what a weight loss workout looks like, or which machines to use,
Weight loss for moms also should not focus on many of the traditional weight loss exercises
and toning exercises.
Exercises like endless amounts of crunches, sit-ups, and any other abs exercise won’t lead to
the weight loss you’re after. Nor will the "Thigh Master" type exercises and machines that so many women’s
magazines tell you do to do to lose weight from your thighs.
Those just aren’t intense enough and don’t get your body burning fat the way full body 10
minute workouts do.
In order for moms to be successful in their weight loss efforts, they need to focus on full
body weight loss workouts and full body weight loss exercises.
These exercises and workouts need to be short, but intense so that you can get on with your
You’re a mom…you shouldn’t have to worry about trying to find hours upon hours of time each
week to head to and from the health club. That’s just not practical.
You also need to stop focusing on those weight loss diets that you find in magazines and on
the bestseller’s list at the bookstore. Those are all fad diets and are pushed by major media outlets and PR firms
to do one thing. Make lots of money.
They really don’t care about your health and well-being, nor do they care about whether or
not you succeed.
If they can convince you that all you have to do is follow their super-restrictive diet or
follow their "secret plan" and get you to lose a couple pounds in a week, they know you’ll be hooked on their
weight loss plan.
The problem is they’re all virtually the same. Extremely restrictive weight loss diets that limit what you can eat and tell you to avoid certain
The next time you’re tempted to follow one of these weight loss diets or weight loss plans, I
want you to ask yourself if this is something you can stick with for an entire year. If not, ask yourself if it
gives you a weight loss plan on what to do when the diet is
If it seems too restrictive, put it back and move on.
A weight loss plan for moms should focus on fast workouts, and
common sense nutrition.
It should not focus on gimmicks or fads, nor should it scare you into believing that theirs
is the only way.
