This is a program that’s going to change your life-and we’re going to have some fun in the process!
Now, I know what you might be thinking. “Me… look like a top-shape cheerleader?” Or, “I’ve never danced a day in my life. How can this program help me get in shape?” Well, I’m here to tell you that this program is all about you!
Whether you’ve fallen off the exercise bandwagon, you’re eating all those foods you know you shouldn’t, or you’ve put on some weight (or all three), this book has found you for a reason. You know how the right people, the ideal job, or other opportunities seem to come into your life at the perfect moment? A healthy lifestyle change is no different. Because becoming the best cheerleader you can be is what this site is all about.
So I’ve made this simple plan to follow for every cheerleader out there.
As they say, life isn’t a sprint: it’s a marathon.
I’m going to teach you how to jump-start your body and your mind in six weeks. This isn’t about gimmicks, it isn’t about fad diets. It isn’t about unrealistic exercise plans with fancy equipment. It’s about you making a lifestyle change that’s going to deliver quick results, but one that is also sustainable for the rest of your life.
I understand that we live in a results-oriented socity- we want to see those results and spend as little time as possible getting them. And I know you have a busy life, with school, practice, homework, etc. I know from personal experience that finding time to get fit and to stay fit is hard! That’s why my program is realistic. By spending as few as thirty minutes a day, five days a week, and making better choices about what you eat, you can have the body you’ve always wanted in as few as six weeks.
I divide that six-week time period into two 3-week phases, and provide you with week-by-week instruction in the Ultimate Six-Week Fitness Plan. Included in that is a Nutrition Jump Start with nutritional tips and tricks to help you set goals for yourself, eat smarter, and feel better doing it. Fitness and nutrition go hand in hand, so we’ll work on both of them together: all the health experts in the world agree, you can’t get fit if you don’t monitor what you eat and increase the amount of your daily activity.
Getting rid of excess pounds and reducing the amount of fat we carry on our bodies isn’t just about looking good-though that’s certainly important-it’s also about preventing disease that can shorten our life spans and make the years we have painful. For that reason, I’m going to introduce you to my “Get into Your Fat-Burning Zone” method. Developed especially for busy cheerleaders who want fast, lasting results, this method takes everything that top-level athletes and coaches know about the benefits of interval training and makes it easy to apply for anyone at any ability level. The exercises I suggest will put you in one of three zones during your workout to maximize your fat burning and conditioning. In combining cardio work with strength training and nutrition, you’ll minimize your time (and those targeted zones of fat) spent working out while maximizing results. My workout plan will have you using more muscle groups simultaneously to product fast results and whole body conditioning.
To give you an idea of how quick and easy some of my fitness recommendations are, I’m going to share with you a few tips about one of the most nagging problems women (and men) complain about. No one likes to carry excess weight around their waistline. We have a lot of ways to describe it, and none of them are flattering-a gut, a pooch belly, a spare tire, a beer belly. Whatever you call it, storing excess fat in our stomach region is unsightly and most of us would do anything to get rid of it. Here are a few simple things you can do to get a flatter stomach in one day!
*Drink water! You know this already,
so do it. But you’ve probably heard all
kinds of things about how much water to
consume. Well, it’s simple: 8 glasses a day.
*Get rid of the white stuff! That means pasta,
potatoes, bread, etc. White flour, starch, and
sugar are the biggest enemies in fat wars. This
is for one day; I would never ask you to eliminate
a food group.
*Eat protein and veggies!
*Avoid salty food! Beware the bags and boxes!
That’s right, prepared foods often contain way
too much salt-not to mention other preservatives
and chemicals we don’t really need.
*Go easy on foods high in fiber if you are not used
to eating them: fiber can cause major bloating if
added too quickly.
*Exercise! A thirty-minute walk/jog is enough to get
you started. Make sure you consume enough water
to make up for what you lose during your workout.
For a thirty-minute walk you should consume sixteen
ounces of water. A rule of thumb for water consumption
is eight ounces for every fifteen minutes of activity.
Now, those are simple things you can do for a one-day quick slim down. But there are a few more concepts we need to cover for you to get a better body in six weeks. Some of this is common sense, but as we all know, common sense is frequently the most uncommon sense of all!
