Cutting Edge Personal TrainingApril 16, 2018

Let’s get fired up!

An authentic surge of motivation will change your life immediately.

The best part of my day is seeing clients just like you achieve amazing results. Whether you hit a new PR in your squat/bench/deadlift, get through the Cutting Edge Personal Training "Widow-Maker" circuit (some of you know what this is), drop a few sizes, lose the baby weight, get off your blood pressure meds, or shrink your waist, the excitement is always contagious.

It’s hard to describe that euphoria that settles in once you’ve achieved your fitness goal. It’s one of those things that you have to experience to understand.

Every single one of my clients who have achieved massive results have ONE THING IN COMMON…

They are all highly motivated.

I am in a unique position. I have acquired a tremendous amount of fitness and nutrition knowledge over the years. I know how to get you (or anyone else who walks through my door) into great shape. I can coach you through a 50-pound weight loss or a 20-pound muscle gain. I can guide you to a healthier body. I can even train you into being a better athlete.

But there is one catch.

You’ll need to be motivated.

Just saying, or even just thinking, that you want to get into great shape isn’t enough. You need motivation—and that’s just half of the equation. The other part (and the most important) is ACTION.

Nothing happens until you take action.

You can want it, think about it, mull it over, ponder it, plan it, and then re-plan it. But nothing happens until you take action.

While I may not know the story of everyone who is reading this—it’s probably safe to assume that if you are getting my newsletter you have a desire to drop fat and tone up. You want to look better, to have more energy, to experience fewer aches and pains, and to enjoy the sweet satisfaction of finally achieving your goals.

I know that all of my successful clients were once in those same shoes. They wanted to change their bodies. They felt urgency. And then they did what most fail to do. They took action and contacted me.

But there is more to it than that. They then committed to a program, put in the exercise, stuck to their diet and met their goals. There’s nothing more gratifying than getting back into those jeans that now sit in the back of your closet.

People who take massive action get massive rewards. And those that simply talk about losing weight will continue to put weight on, pound after pound. I hate to put it that way, but it’s the truth.

So what do you want?

  • To drop 40 pounds
  • To feel younger
  • To look better in your birthday suit
  • To become healthier

How bad do you want it? How much motivation do you have? Enough to take MASSIVE ACTION?

The rewards are great IF you do.


Degrees Of Change

True change happens in degrees, not in one fell swoop. This is a relief when you realize that you have miles to go on your goals. There is no need to attempt all of the change at once – simply nudge yourself in the right direction each and every day and maintain the small changes as you go.

Did you eat a big bowl of spaghetti noodles with your favorite sauce for dinner last night? Tonight eat a smaller bowl. Next week eat zucchini noodles and your favorite sauce. The following week eat zucchini noodles with the protein-filled sauce recipe below.

Small changes in the right direction, maintained over time, will make all of the difference as you strive toward the body and lifestyle that you desire.


Beef Ragu and Zucchini Noodles

​Yes, it is possible to enjoy Spaghetti night while living a fit and lean lifestyle. This is accomplished with noodles made from fresh zucchini and a sauce that is simply made and packed with protein. Feel free to sub in ground beef for the minced beef if desired.

Jim's Cutting Edge Exercise Success Guidelines...Are YOU Meeting Them?
If you're not meeting your weight loss goals, of course how you eat is one of the first fixes you should be looking at. BUT...one of the EASIEST things to change is your exercise variable.

Specifically...Frequency AND Consistency.


In a week, at a MINIMUM, EVERYONE should be getting in 4 Days combined of Resistance Training and/or Interval Cardio Work

That means, if you work with me...

1 x Week, you should be adding:
- 1 more Resistance Training day on your own plus 2 Interval Cardio Sessions. OR...
- 2 more Resistance Days on your own plus 1 Interval Cardio Sessions.

2 x Week, you should be adding:
- 2 Interval Cardio Sessions. OR...
- 1 More Resistance Training Day done on your own PLUS 1 Interval Cardio Day.

3 x Week, you should be adding:
- 1 Interval Cardio Day.

On top of this, as an added BONUS, EVERYONE would benefit from adding 1-2 Steady-State Cardio Sessions in a week. Go for a walk. A jog. Hop on a bike. Whatever you choose, just get moving at a steady pace and do it for 40-60 minutes. Of course, this will be depending on the time availability in your personal schedule AND your desire to get results.
