About This Class

Beginners are you ready?  Want to strength train, but do not know where to start?  Or maybe you haven't trained in awhile and want to get back?  

Either way, you have come to the right place!  Get stronger and body-altering results in only 8 weeks with this daily video trainer.  With me as your guide, this easy to follow plan will help you gain strength, build muscle, drop fat and gain confidence.  I will show you how. 

The Workouts
Each day you have a video to watch that will show and explain exactly what you need to do.  Most training days have five exercises focusing on two major muscle groups In the beginning, we start with machines and body weight exercises before gradually moving to free weights.

I may be asking you to do things you have never done before or don't know how to do.  All I ask is that you try and challenge yourself with each set, and each rep. Use this trainer as an opportunity to learn something new.  

Tracking Workouts
This trainer includes a fitness log for every single workout. It is important for you to monitor your progress. Write down your weight and reps for each set.  Keep track and use this tool as a way to gauge your success and progress.  

The Recovery
Plenty of rest days are part of the trainer and these are your days to recover.  Watch and learn different tips and get answers to common questions. Nutrition does not have to be difficult, but in order to achieve the best possible results, it has to be deliberate every day. Fuel the best to perform the best.

So what are you waiting for?  Come join me in the program today.  You'll be glad you did!
