The Benefits of Live Training versus Online Video Classes by…

A “Foo” is a foot with no toes. Diabetes can take your erection, which can affect your lifestyle or marriage. It can take toes, foot or leg landing its victims in wheelchairs. Diabetes life can be injections and needles, and also watching what you eat, paying extra attention to every cut and scrape, and worrying constantly about what your blood sugar levels are.
Online accountability is an effective way to help many at risk or already diagnosed Diabetics improve their health and lifestyle:
By helping people work on their overall physical fitness and their diet, I have been able to help people get their diabetes under control. Diabetes is a disease of lifestyle, which means exercise and food make a difference. Clients are able to change their lives, weight and test results. With these results their doctors can reduce their patient’s dependence on medicines.**
**Please consult your doctor and/or medical professional for all medical questions and decisions, including pharmaceutical and medication questions. **I can work with your doctor, physical therapist or medical team, but please route all medical questions directly to medical professionals.
Jack and the Food Truck Burrito
Jack was just 32 when his doctor warned him about type 2 Diabetes. Jack used to be a high school football player, but he had let himself go. He was 45 pounds overweight, and sedentary. He kept eating like he was in high school, but now he had a desk job in downtown LA.
He called me because he had no energy and he was afraid that his next doctor visit would involve insulin injections. He was even sicker of hearing his wife ask him to get into better shape. She told him, “If you won’t listen to your doctor or take my advice, maybe you will listen to her.”
I listened to him tell me what he was eating (“Burritos from the food truck [!!!] and 14 ounces of steak at night.”) and what exercise he was getting (“I walk up two flights to work.”). He knew better and I didn’t really have to make a big deal of it. Once he said it out loud to me, I could visualize the gears shifting in his mindset.
Firstly, we got him moving. Every week we would talk about and set goals and activities for the coming week. He would do them and report back to me.
Next, we tackled his food. He didn’t like too many vegetables, but he knew that he needed to include more veggies in his diet. We integrated the healthiest choices into his life with flavors that he loved. I taught him how to pack healthy food and taco salads for lunch (instead of those burritos) and to keep them from being boring.
Today, Jack is only 10 pounds over his high school football weight and he looks great. More importantly, his doctor told him he was no longer at risk for Diabetes 2. Yes, with a few changes he is no longer considered at risk! He can still have a burrito once a month rather than daily, but he doesn’t even want them anymore. Apparently, his wife considers him much hotter now too, so… BONUS!
What I offer is experience and know-how for getting yourself in great shape. By getting fit and eating well, you can feel better, be healthier, and reduce the impact of diabetes on your life.
These little changes are tough without an accountability partner. I am a professional accountability partner.
Friends and family as accountability partners are great, but they have busy lives and often they can’t/won’t follow up with you for a specific appointment time.
Over the phone, via email, even on Skype, we can talk about your lifestyle and how we can improve it to help get your diabetes under control.
My principles are simple: Motivation, Movement, and Mindset. I will help to motive your change, help you find the right movement to meet your needs, and show you how to develop the mindset to succeed.
Call me today at 877-409-1758 for a free consultation. Let’s make your diabetes a motivational asset for change instead of a handicap that you and your loved ones have to overcome.
