How to Leverage the January Effect for Fitness Success

------------------------------- IMPORTANT NOTE: Everything I'm sharing on this page and in the video applies to both MEN and WOMEN... On this note - the new website and podcast will also be "Co-Ed". -------------------------------

Leverage the January Effect for Eternal Fitness Success

Each month we shoot at least 2-3 videos for our private clients at the SCULPTAFIT Studio... The videos get loaded into a private access area for Studio Clients so they can view if they were unable to attend a seminar or workshop... And any new clients who join in the future can access the video sessions at a later date. SIDE NOTE: I'm thinking about making these videos (sample is below), or some of them, available on the new website which will be going live very soon. If you're interested in that idea, please let me know in the comment box at the bottom of this page. TODAY, as a special gift and "thank you" for all your great feedback - and simply for "being here" - I thought it would be helpful if I shared one of our recent seminars that we hosted for the New Year Kick-Off... Here it is... (click the play button) Take-Away TIP: Watch the video session with paper (or note-card) and pen in hand. I share some powerful concepts that some clients call "Aha Moments"... Feel free to share your "Aha Moment" in the box below and if you have any questions, please post below too. In addition to the seminar/workshop style videos like you see above, me and the SCULPTAFIT Coaching Team will also be recording Home/Office/Travel (H.O.T.) Exercise videos for our clients of the Studio for when they go on the road - and to guide them on the days they are not in the SCULPAFIT Studio... If you're also interested in having access to some of those please let me know below... As It could be something I bring into the new website and podcast when it goes live.

The Time Has Come for Me to Move On

The time has come for me to move on… Not to disappear but actually to step up to a bigger stage, a bigger role that is calling me, a bigger need this universe needs filled, by a specific person (me)… A few things are happening “behind the scenes” right now, as you read this - and as things unfold I’ll share more and more, so you don’t miss anything - and are aware of new ways that I’ll be able to help you - and other people/organizations you’re connected to. A new website property is in the works - and will represent this new realm I’m stepping up to. It will serve as the foundation of my bigger vision and will be the home of where I blog, podcast and video-blog - to bring more helpful examples, highlights and suggestions to you - and the world. As is naturally happening in my face-to-face, ‘real world’... My conversations, interactions and invites are transcending the areas of simple fitness and nutrition - and are being elevated to the broader scope of “living well” by way of a sound mindset and daily management of “the mental game” of life… That is the root of any and all personal success - no matter the topic area - and it happens to be the focal point of how I guide people toward better holistic fitness. Make no mistake, I’m not posing as a “master” or “guru” - but rather, I am someone consciously traveling the path to the best of my abilities, while still facing the daily challenges of life in our modern, “busy” world… THAT is what is needed.. not a "guru" - but a realistic role model. I will continue sharing all that I can, to help YOU on your journey as well… And I believe you'll appreciate what "is coming next"... The last few years have been an extraordinary journey of success, validation and profound affirmation… In addition to helping tens of thousands of people all over the world, via my websites, online videos, books and DVDs - I’ve also put the time, energy and effort into opening the first SCULPTAFIT Studio, in Saint Johns Florida… With a powerful and capable Team helping me manage and grow the local SCULPTAFIT Studio, I am blessed with the opportunity, flexibility and capability to connect with other individuals and companies around the world to make a greater positive impact on larger scale - bringing a unique approach, and solutions to enhance health, fitness and productivity to those who value these benefits and know they are needed... My unique methods and mindset angles have resonated with people in positions to help positively impact many others in their own organizations and companies - and through this dynamic, I’ve been asked many times over the last few years to consider direct speaking and consulting assignments to get this “real world” message of effective, sustainable fitness for optimal living out into the populations that need it the most… Since the positive forces of the universe are asking me to aim higher and rise to a level that delivers a more profound impact on the world through organizations, corporations, and individuals - it is time for me to step up to that responsibility... I realize it is an innate gift inside me and I’m the one who is supposed to bring it to those who need it. I share all this with you for two key reasons: 1 - to keep you tuned-in to what I’m doing so you can consider how I might be able to help you or any organization you are connected with... 2 - to INSPIRE YOU to rise to your higher calling, your dormant potential, your “reason for existence”… That #2 can take many forms as your life is your own unique situation - and your current place can be anywhere on your “personal timeline”… But one thing is for sure. You have not reached your destination - and your life, NO LIFE, is supposed to be static… Life is all about evolution, growth, progress and healthy change… (Remember, the tagline of this old blog has always been "Live to the Max" :-) ) See, I’ve been playing it “small” for the last few years… and it's time to change that now. Sure I’ve taken the bigger steps to open the first SCULPTAFIT Studio - but on a personal level - there is more, A LOT MORE, I know I can bring into the world - to make an even stronger and more meaningful impact on society as a whole… I look around every day and it is clear that I’m needed in a bigger way… People are on autopilot, “asleep at the wheel”, drifting in a daze that they don’t even know they’re drifting in… Most people are living in a matrix (some call it “modern day society”) - a subtle but life-sucking matrix designed to keep them unhappy, yet addictively seeking daily happiness through unhealthy foods, sugar drinks, mind-killing “news and entertainment”, retail therapy, and a few other things we’ll talk about later… So instead of just helping people “get into better shape by doing these types of exercises and eating this type of food”… I’m going to be helping by addressing the bigger paradigm, of “how should I think?” instead of “what should I do?” In short that is where this is all leading. So… Over the next few weeks I’ll be opening up more dialogue on this - and looking forward to hearing from you as well. The more I share - the more this will all make perfect sense to you... As a matter of fact if any thoughts, comments or questions are stirring in you right now, I’d love to hear them. So please share your thoughts, comments or questions in the box below. I'd love to hear from you :-) I look forward to hearing from you,... (possibly moving away from the "Trainer for Life" label - maybe you can help me come up with the next label as I step up to the bigger stage.) Thanks for reading - thanks for being here... - Joey Atlas

[caption id="attachment_2080" align="alignnone" width="259"]Moving Onward and Upward - You Coming Along?? Moving Onward and Upward - You Coming Along??[/caption]
That means I'm going to be leaving this blog, and its narrow focus, behind... And I'm building something more progressive, more appropriate, more expansive, more inclusive... MORE HELPFUL.

And it's quite possible I may want to interview you for my podcast show in 2017

[ To put this all into context, if you missed my last email ("I'm moving on, here's my farewell letter...") I've copied it as a blog post here ]

So here's where you might come in (or maybe someone you know)...

The new project/website (which should be ready by February) is going to be home base for my ["name to be determined"] Podcast (in addition to a few other key components)... The podcast section will offer various types of audio content, one of these being inspirational stories & examples of fitness/health success. (plus MUCH more) And if you believe you fit this category, and have a story that will inspire others - then here's what you do...

Beginner Fitness Training Program for Home or Travel

At the request of many readers and willing students of fitness, I've sorted and aggregated a handful of select videos from my youtube and vimeo channels, into several specific programs (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced)... The first, Beginner, is below (once the others are done I will link to them from this page).

Important Step #1

The first important step before you even think about trying the any of these free programs, is to GET CLEARANCE from your doctor. This is a simple precautionary step and it doesn't matter what your age is. Just call your doctor's office and let them know you want to be cleared for exercise because you're "ready to get started" ... and feel free to SHARE THESE videos with your doctor's office staff so they know what you'll be doing.

Here is your general approach for this Beginner Fitness Program

After you get doctor's clearance for exercise. You'll start with Day #1 and simply aim to get through the session just one time. Do what you comfortably can and leave out what you might not be able to do in the early stages. Follow the daily sequence as outline below. Aim to go through each session just once, for the first 2 weeks. In week #3 aim to go through each video twice. In week #5 try stepping up to 3 times through each video. [*Any questions, please post at the bottom of this page.*]

Beginner Fitness Training Program for Home, Office or Travel

This program is a 5 day rotation sequence. You can start this any day of the week - so here is an example of how to place this into your schedule, so it becomes part of your lifestyle. Day 1 session on Monday Day 2 session on Tuesday Day 3 session on Wednesday Day 4 session on Thursday Day 5 session on Friday ------------------------ After Day 5, start rotation again: Day 1 session on Saturday Etc.... -------------------------

Day #1: Lower-Body Body-Weight Session

 

Day #2:Chest and Back Body-Weight and Resistance Band Session

 

Day #3: Shoulder Resistance Band and Body-Weight Session

 

Include in Day #3: Shoulder Stretching/Flexibility Session

 

Day #4: Biceps and Triceps Resistance Band Sessions

 

Day #5: Cardio Combo and Full-Body Flexibility

Basic Foundational Cardio: Anywhere, Anytime
 
Indoor/Outdoor Full-Body Flexibility
 

Some Tips and Pointers on Getting the Most Out of The Beginner Program

1 - If you miss a day, for whatever reason - NO WORRIES, just pick up where you left off. Simple. 2 - If there is a certain exercise or stretch that doesn't feel right to you, just skip it. Do all the things you can and keep with it. 3 - Consider this your 'foundation', as the weeks progress, this program will become easier, because you're getting stronger, more fit - and healthier. Eventually you'll step up to the Intermediate Program.
