6 Month Old Cheeseburger…

May 9, 2011

Mr. Wheeler, a Science teacher at W.B. Ray High School has an ongoing experiment with his Nutrition and Science class.  I thought you might like to read about it.

  6-Month Cheeseburger

The 6-Month Old McDonald’s Cheeseburger

“The attached photo is of a ongoing science experiment that my students performed in Nutrition and Science Class. Funny thing is you will not see any mold, bacteria, or deterioration of any kind. Something to ponder the next time your deciding on where to eat…perhaps a few too many preservatives.”

And millions of people eat this everyday.  Pretty scary!  Think before you eat!

Release the Fat…

August 24, 2010

How does the body release stored body fat?  One of the quickest ways for our bodies to release body fat is train/workout at such an intensity that it sends your body into as state of “fight or flight”.

You know that feeling during your workout when you think to yourself “I don’t think I can do one more” or “I don’t think I will be able to finish this workout” or my favorite “If he tells me “only more 10 seconds” one more time I am going to let him have it!”

At this point in your workout your body is releasing hormones adrenaline, noradrenaline, and cortisol into your blood stream to help with your panicked state.  What also happens is your body taps into it’s storage of fat to use as fuel.  During this time when your heart is raising and you can barely catch your breath you are burning a ton of calories to help your body compensate for the stresses that are being placed on it.

Is this a good thing to do?  Yes, but not all the time.  That is why we have recovery weeks and take days off from training all together.

This next week, when we get back to our workouts and let yourself get to that state of “HOLY CRAP I DON’T THINK I CAN DO ONE MORE REP!” and know that it is helping you move closer to your fitness/fat loss goals.

Please let me know what you think of this post.

The Last 3-Weeks

July 11, 2010

It has been a great 3-Weeks capped off by our Fitness Boot Camp Fundraiser for the Ready or Not Foundation. We raised $850 for the Foundation! Not bad for a one hour workout.  Checkout out on Channel 6 News.

I have been blown away by our Pinnacle Fitness Boot Camp members commitment to their workouts.  Even with a hurricane looming in the Gulf of Mexico and vacation on everyone’s minds they still made their workouts.  Keep it UP!

Pinnacle Fitness Boot Camps started its Pinnacle Fitness Challenge in conjunction with the Mayor’s Fitness Council. It is going really well! All 11 participants are seeing significant changes in their body’s and their lives. Lowering blood sugar, losing inches, losing pounds, gaining confidence, getting stronger, etc… are just a few of the comments I have been hearing from the participants.

We also launched our first boot camp 2 go program yesterday. The program consists of video workouts and music provided by Workout Muse. If you haven’t checked out Workout Muse click here to download your next interval workout. Or if you have smart phone check out the Workout Muse App. This App will let you create a music playlist using your own music. While you are working out  it will keep count of your work to rest rounds.  It is a great training tool for metabolic training like we do in boot camp or cardio intervals you do on your off days.

Next time you are at Freebirds try the Freedom Salad. I ate one yesterday and was pretty fired up about it. Lots of greens, lean chicken, black beans, tomatoes, pico, and guacamole. I didn’t even need salad dressing. 5 Stars!!!!

Have a great week, eat clean, try a recovery workout with a foam roller if you get the opportunity.

Do As I Say…

July 2, 2010

Not as I Do, Kinda…

I won’t get into the excuses (lack of planning) but I wound up in the Whataburger drive-thru for dinner this evening! I know, I know…

I wanted to share this with you because even when you are stuck (or choose) eating something not on the “Pinnacle Fitness Boot Camp approved food list” you can still make some smart choices. You have to keep your wits about you though. Order what you need, not what is in the picture.

What I had to eat for dinner was:
A Number 2, no cheese, on a wheat bun, with no bun oil, plus extra veggies. Also, I upgraded to have the side salad rather than downing the fries. It was worth the extra $.25 for the salad even if it was only iceburg lettuce and two cherry tomatoes. I didn’t need the extra grease or salt. No one really needs it!

Quick reminder: There is no class on Monday next week. We will meet on Tuesday. I hope you can make it Tuesday.

Also, Saturday July 10th we will be having our Grocery Store Tour at the HEB on Robert and Alameda at 8am.

Then we will be offering a fundraiser for the Ready or Not Foundation at First Christian Church at 10am. This will be a one hour workout you will not want to miss. Invite your friends and family members! All we are asking is a $10 donation. I will be sending out more information regarding the fundraiser.

I hope you have a great 4th of July holiday weekend. Let me know if you need anything.

Committed to Your Success,
Adam

The Pinnacle Fitness Challenge

June 24, 2010

Last Monday morning Pinnacle Fitness Boot Camps in conjunction with Mayor Joe Adame’s Fitness Council began the Pinnacle Fitness Challenge.

Angela Rowe the Mayor’s Fitness Council Coordinator asked me a few months ago if I would like to be involved in helping Corpus Christi become more fit and remove ourselves from the Number 1 position as the “Fattest City in America” according to Men’s Health Magazine. I told her I was very interested but I had a few conditions.

First, I wanted our participants to meet more than just a few times together to workout. I wanted the participants to join our current boot camp members in transforming their lives and their bodies.

The Pinnacle Fitness Challenge participants started this past Monday with our current boot camp members. The Fitness Challenge participants will continue to meet either in the morning at First Christian Church Fellowship Hall on MWF at 6am, 7am or 8:30am or Downtown at the Omni Maria MWTh at 5:45pm until the end of September when we will take a post-assessment of each participant.

Secondly, I wanted a strong group of civic minded busy professionals who normally wouldn’t take time for themselves to participate in our program. Angela delivered a great group of individuals: US State Represenative Solomon Oritz Jr, City Councilman John Marez, Local “40 thing to do in Corpus Christi” commentator Joe Hillard, Mayor’s Fitness Council member, Venessa Garza, Beautify Corpus Christi Executive Director Daiquiri Richard, Channel 6 Weekend Anchor Melissa Schroeder, AEP Texas Communications Coordinator, Omar Lopez, the City’s Intergovernmental Relations Director, Rudy Garza, Interim Director of Economic Development, Emily Martinez and City Pride/Clean City and Mayor’s Fitness Council Coordinator, Angela Rowe.

Lastly, I wanted to make it fun and competitive. Before Monday most everyone had come into Pinnacle Performance and Fitness training studio and completed their initial assessment. We measured body weight, girth measurements, body composition, and took a before photo. Some were shocked by the results, others were not so surprised.

The measurements from the initial assessment will be used to compare the results at the end of the program. We are planning on giving our Corpus Christi community the opportunity to vote for a winner using an online poll. We will post the each participants transformation story, their pounds, inches, and body fat % lost as well as their before and after picture for the voters to decide who should be the winner of the Pinnacle Fitness Challenge. We are still collecting prizes from area businesses.

Each participant was also given the Drop a Dress Size in 21 Days customizable meal plan as well as our 3-Month customizable Done-For-You meal plan.

Over the next four months these individuals will transform their bodies, lives and the lives of family and friends. I have already seen it happening from their Facebook accounts.

I will be making weekly posts about the Fitness Challenge as well as outstanding, awesome, unbelievable Pinnacle Fitness Boot Camps members.

Let me know if you would like to join our members in transforming your life and body.

Healthy Feet Can Make You Skinny

May 28, 2010

I know foot care isn’t in the news everyday. But did you know that foot care can make you skinnier, look great, feel incredible, and increase your flexibility.

By rolling out your feet on a tennis ball like I have demonstrated in the video you are less likely to experience very painful plantar faciaitis. If you have had it before you know what I am talking about. You don’t want to walk, workout, run, or move your foot at all. So if you can’t move your feet you won’t be able to burn off all those calories.

I hope you enjoy the post and the video. Leave a comment if you like it or don’t like it.

18 Pounds in Two Months!!!

May 10, 2010

Congratulations to Diane Metz for dropping 18 pounds over the past two months!

Below is a brief description of Pinnacle Fitness Boot Camps and what Diane’s secret to losing all that weight so quickly was.

You could do the same thing if you set your mind to it and put a few simple systems in place to help you get what you want.

She also told me she had changed her eating habits as well as her family’s eating habits.  It is tough but you can do it just like she has.

If you are struggling with dropping those last few pounds or need to get started let me know and we can set up a time to talk about what you are doing or more importantly, not doing

Committed to Your Success,
