Fitness For Freedom Tips is a new type of fitness and health show. We deliver fitness tips that you can apply to your life right away in 10 minutes or less. Lets face it you’re busy and life pulls you in all directions. You want to be healthier, but living a healthier lifestyle is hard. It requires you to change and there is a lot of misinformation out there. We work hard to syphon through it to give you the most sound advice possible and set you up for the greatest chance of success. Jonathan Chant has been working with people to live healthier lives for 10 years now and he’s seen it all. That’s why he founded Fitness For Freedom, your complete online fitness training and lifestyle design community. He pulls out all the stops to help you make the changes yourself. No transformation challenges, no extreme changes just solid strategies to help you make changes that will stick for the rest of your life. Change is constant and you’re going to have lots of questions as you go along that’s why we keep our episodes short so they don’t ‘eat in’ to your already ‘stretched’ lives (puns intended). We try to have some fun with it too! Exercise doesn’t have to be boring? So what are you waiting for? If you’re still reading this you’re definitely interested in the show, so give it a listen.

Alright, so the bridge version of this question is this, is it bad to workout at home? And my answer to that question is, it really depends, it depends what your goals are, it depends if you have enough space for your abilities, it depends how many distractions you have at home, it depends if you can be motivated enough to exercise at home and it depends what’s convenient for you.

Here’s the deal, Slim by Design is a book about how you can redesign your life so you eat less without thinking about it.  In other words control your environment so you don’t need to rely on willpower or any other crazy diet schemes.  What I love the most about this book is that everything is backed up by science with hard numbers in the research they’ve done, it’s suggestive not restrictive and you can apply it to any form of eating whether you’re actively trying to lose weight or not.

The concept of losing weight is actually really simple burn more calories than you eat, but if you’re like most people you realize there are way more factors that play into it, which is why exercising to lose weight will only take you so far.  In order to understand the role exercise play’s in weight loss you need to understand what exercise does to your body.

So what is a plateau? A plateau is a period of time where you become stagnant or unable to improve any further, if we’re talking about lifting weights it means you’re unable to lift a heavier weight or lift the same weight more times. This is a really common problem that I see people deal with and it’s really important to handle because plateaus usually mean lost motivation, which means less exercising which means you’re losing out on all the great benefits exercise has to offer.  Here’s how to overcome them!

Let’s start by pointing out the obvious, breathing is really important.  It is required for your body to get oxygen so you can perform your best and use your energy the most effective way possible.  Different types of exercise require different types of breathing and that’s what we’re going to talk about today.

Motivation is multi faceted and there is no single reason you would choose to do a certain activity or act a certain way, meaning there are several reasons why you do what you do. One of the biggest indicators, if not the biggest indicator as to why you do what you do is based on the feedback you receive. So if you’re trying to change something or live a more healthy lifestyle you need to give yourself feedback that directly supports this way of living.

Motivation is not something you find it’s something you develop that operates on a spectrum so build systems and join a community that shares the same values that you have, so you can move your way to being more motivated on that spectrum.

The biggest problem I find people have with treadmills or any kind of stationary cardiovascular equipment is just that, it’s stationary. You’re doing a whole lot of work but you’re not visibly moving forward so right off the bat you have subconscious or quite possibly conscious cues working against you.  So we need to find ways to overcome that, this means finding ways to distract yourself from what’s happening and giving yourself feedback about how you’re improving.

Running on a treadmill has a lot of great benefits, you don’t have to worry about the extreme cold or wind, if something bad happens you can stop immediately and the track is completely level, this means you don’t have to worry as much about rolling your ankle or slipping.  It’s just a more comfortable run when you can’t handle the elements of the outdoors. Today we're going to talk about how to do it safely, efficiently and effectively.

In this episode we’re going to give you some strategies to get back on the band wagon when you fall off and to let you know it’s alright, we all fall off at one point or another, we just can’t let one bad decision, bad day or week keep us down, this is a journey we’ve all made mistakes and we’re going to make more, it’s just the nature of the beast.

Most people think they have to make extreme changes in how they live because they want to see massive changes in their body, but extreme and overly restricted changes are not necessary.  Small changes over time can lead to massive overall changes that last a life time.  They last a lifetime because they are small and you implement them slowly enough they become part of your life. Meaning they are much more likely to stick.

If you’re like most people (and let’s face it you probably are) you’ve struggled with losing weight, starting an exercise program or trying to make some sort of lifestyle change. Doing it for a little while was relatively easy, but over time you slowly slipped and weren’t able to make the changes stick for the long-term. This can happen for many reasons, but the biggest reason is that you need to think about exercise and nutrition in a slightly different way. In this episode we talk about reframing the way you think about fitness, nutrition and living a healthy lifestyle.
