“I had an idea of Karie’s abilities, fitness level, and goals before she arrived so we were able to hit the ground running and actually did our first session in the late afternoon of the day she arrived…”
Here’s how our full training schedule panned out during the 5.5 day “Atlas 1-on-1 Personal Fitness Experience”:
1 – Karie Arrived Here in Jacksonville, FL from Minnesota Thursday Afternoon: We did a full Lower-Body Training Session; (see Assisted Pistol Squat Photo below) We also did a manual stretching/flexibility session.
2 – Friday: At 9:15am I dropped Karie off at the SCULPTAFIT Studio in Saint Johns, FL so she could try her first class and see what the “experience” is like as a participant. (She was quite surprised, as you may have heard in the TFW podcast Episode #8)
Later that same day (Friday Afternoon, before dinner, we did a Bodyweight Chest and Back Training Session on the SCULPTABOD Unit in the home gym room at the house.
3 – Saturday: Abs and Core on the SCULPTABOD Unit, 10 minute stretching/flexibility session; and a 15 Mile ‘Casual’ Bike Ride.
4 – Sunday: 20 mile Beach Bike Ride (Atlantic Beach & Neptune Beach, FL) (No resistance training this day).
5 – Monday: Another 9:15am SCULPTAFIT Studio Session for Karie. Later in the afternoon, we did a Shoulder Focused Workout at the house (see Rear Deltoid and Bodyweight Shoulder Press photos below)
6 – Tuesday: at 10 am we recorded The Fitness Whisperer Podcast Episode #8
..and then left for the airport around noon to get Karie there on time for her flight back to Minnesota.
Here are a few still shot from the Atlas Home Gym Studio Training Sessions we did at the house:
A few other keys highlights and discoveries that were made and noted during Karie’s Fitness Visit
1 – She was extremely surprised at The Simple, but Super-Helpful, Healthy Cooking “lessons” that occurred in the kitchen. Karie was able to witness my some of my regular recipe combos, cooking shortcuts, and fitness food prep tactics that make living healthy so easy and enjoyable. (these kitchen/food lessons may become part of the “Atlas/SCULPTAFIT Optimum Wellness Retreat” later this year, or early in 2018)
2 – I rely VERY heavily on my Electric Tea Kettle (<= that is a very good one ) to boil water quickly and safely, several times a day for my teas, and some foods. Karie realized this one tactic alone will save her 20-30 minutes per day (maybe more), EVERY DAY. That adds up... to A LOT of time she gets back for herself. 3 – Mindset and how I “think about” how I go through my days. She made note of the proactive mental ‘filtering’ and planning that went into making my days smoother, more predictable, and more prepared for any challenges that may arise (which happens in life). The things we talked about on this topic may also become part of the “Atlas/SCULPTAFIT Optimum Wellness Retreat” later this year, or early in 2018)
4 – This is something that actually hit me “after the fact”. We did several “mini food shops” during Karie’s visit and I realized how much we took for granted, in that – so many people are overwhelmingly confused when they go into a supermarket, or any other place they go for food shopping.
We just breezed through the markets snatching up all the good things we needed for our health/fitness lifestyles and goals – while so many other people where filling their carts with life-killing, health-crippling “foods” and drinks…
It’s important to note: Some people are oblivious to understanding the difference between “good” foods and “bad” foods… While others “know” the difference, but choose to ignore what they know and still eat & drink themselves into poor health, illness and premature aging.
So the idea of making food-shopping and “Supermarket Savvy” and part of the “Atlas/SCULPTAFIT Optimum Wellness Retreat” later this year, or early in 2018 is one that I know will be a very important one.
Alrighty, that’s it for this one…
