New Years Resolutions are typically a recipe for failure which has the ability to create a lower sense of self confidence and self esteem when goals aren’t reached which only reinforces negative brain patterns leading to destructive habits and feelings.
That doesn’t sound great to me, how about you?
You may want to try to make new LIFE Resolutions. The reason being is that a habit won’t change automatically in the New Year, it will change because it is a part of a path to creating the life and the person you were meant to be based on a bigger purpose.
The word sin comes from archery and means to miss your mark, to not be who you were created to be, the greatest version of yourself…
and Character is the ability to carry out a RESOLUTION long after the excitement of the moment has passed.
Who wants to build more character and trudge the road to the greatest version you can be and not give up or give in when things get a little challenging?
There is no time like the present! Don’t miss the your mark in 2017 and all the years there after.
Tom went from walking with a CANE to SWINGING a 62lb kettle bell and doing 135lb deadlift.
He lost 35 lbs and 5 inches on his waist. You can read his testimonial below.
“I never thought I’d be racing, auto racing again and I know Ian promised me that we’ll see where we can go and we’ll get you better than you were. I didn’t know I would get that far, and people are amazed. I’ve got friends from before I had all the surgeries and they’re just amazed that I’m now able to do all that.
I talk to people; I would definitely recommend no matter where they are because if you’re not happy with where you are you’ve got nothing to lose, and the main thing is you just got to don’t give up, you just got to try.
Well, before EarthFIT, I’ve gone through a number of operations, knees and I had some back issues. So, what I do because of the back issues, and even after going through therapy, I was no longer able to work on cars. I had to give up auto racing which I really like, and I like walking. I couldn’t walk more than about a quarter of a mile. Before, I used a cane. In fact, I had to use a cane a lot at work for my knees. So I went to Ian in March of 2013 and told him, “well, I’ll try anything,” and we just started with the basic stretches. I wasn’t really able to lift weights at that point and now at this point I’ve been racing cars for the last 2 years, I can work on cars, I can also, you know, lift up wheels and tires, I can do 135lbs on the deadlift. I’ve gone from my 38 waist to a 33 waist, and I’ve gone from a 207 lbs to a 172 lbs and maintaining that weight now. I’m just trying to stay in shape and working out so I’m extremely happy with what Ian’s done for me at EarthFIT.
I was skeptical at first when I talked to Ian. I’ve been through some therapy up north when I was up there, and they just did stretches and stuff and they really were not able to do much for me so I was skeptical, but again, willing to try anything and I was impressed when I looked at a video on the back issues so it helped the fact that Ian had gone through some of the issues I had with the back, and so it worked. I’m extremely happy.
I’ve lost from 207 to 172, so 35lbs I lost, but more importantly at least from me is I lost 5 inches off the waist. This biggest impact is the fact I’m now like to stay active. I’m not really a TV person or I don’t like to sit around. I like to be active whether, you know, going to the race track, going to car shows, or just walking. I really enjoy just going for nice long walks and I’m able to do all that. It’s fine. I’m tired at the end of the day but that’s a good thing.”
“Today I’m going to go over with you the concept of supercompensation. When we do an assessment on someone we test their base level of fitness. The base level could be exactly where they are at today and then we go over to where we want to take them. So the end game helps create the program for us but supercompensation happens for everybody who’s training, and if you move outside of this model, your results are going to be diminished.
So, let me explain how the process works. If I test someone’s base level of fitness while I’m testing them or while they are working out, they are actually fatiguing the body. They’re breaking down the muscle; they are actually losing glycogen, ATP in the muscle. Calcium helps contract the muscle and the magnesium relaxes the muscle, they’re losing minerals, your nervous system’s getting fatigue, your immune system actually goes down slightly right? but this is also benefit because when you build back the body your immune system gets stronger. So while you’re working out you are actually fatiguing the body.
Okay, so your base level is right here (please see the video). Now you’re fatiguing the body; the changes occur when you go home, you eat, sleep and drink water right? I did a video on Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness; you might have some muscle soreness. So the changes occur when you go home, you eat, sleep and drink water. Now your body has an amazing ability to adapt to whatever stress is being put on and it recovers at a better state. It is what’s called Supercompensation.You have to train in that period again in a progressive, scientific way to see results. If not, you are gonna end up back down here and won’t get the results. So, for an example, running one day a week and swimming one day a week you are not gonna get better at either. Initially, if you have not been doing anything you might see a little bit of results, but you’re not going to really see any strides in that type of training scenario. So, it’s got to be a progressive, scientific way to get you to the next level of whatever are your goals.
So, 2x a week is typically a better minimum to see results. 3x a week you see about 33% more results, right? Because you are training 1/3 of the time more. 4x a week you see about 25% more results and this depends on the training program. A good training program, you can really maximize results; bad training program who knows where it’s going to take you. Now, if you train too much, too hard, too often, you can go into overtraining. The chances that I’ve seen of that happening in the general population is very slim to none so I don’t think you’re at a, you know, risk of that for the most part, but it does happen.
So, supercompensation: we fatigue the body, we put stress on the body then the body recovers, and it recovers at a better state in preparation for that next level of stress, which that stress should be within a threshold that your body can handle for safety reasons, for not going into overtraining or pushing too hard or exerting, because if you do push too hard, too much you can cause yourself to get sick if it lowers the immune system, and then intaking the right nutrients so that you build your body back up. This is why a protein and good simple carbs after training helps the process of repairing, etc. So simple model supercompensation you want to make sure you have a training program that can take you in progressive steps to get you to burn fat, gain lean muscle and feel good, which is typically what everybody is looking for the most part. There you have it. I hope this helps. Have a great day! Ian Hart with EarthFIT training.”
I thought it was only right to share this on Jan. 1st,
when people tend to make new goals or try to start over fresh.
The formula for success in anything is
COMMITMENT + CONSISTENCY = SUCCESS
People who are committed to a result or outcome will:
not stop when obstacle come up.
not make excuses.
Forego sleep and creature comforts
put there money where their mouth is (Money is only an exchange of energy, the more energy you put into something the more your commitment level is. When I join coaching programs myself, I want to pay a lot of money because I take it more serious and get better and faster results out of it, plus the quality of the coaching is higher)
be more focused on the result or outcome
This is why we always ask anyone interested in our training program:
“On a scale of 1-10, how committed are your to achieving your goals?”
We ask this because as coaches we are not magicians.
We need commitment first and foremost to help anyone in any endeavor.
We know if we have a high level of commitment and the
person trains consistently we can get them AWESOME results fast!
John H. (Lost 30 lbs in a month)
So if you are making goals in 2016, ask yourself how committed you
are to the outcome and do you have a plan to make sure that you are
consistent with your actions?
Committed to your success,
P.S. We got super busy before the New Year and only have a few membership spaces open, so if your serious about make a transformation in 2016 reply to this email.
P.P.S. Here are a few people who were committed below, pretty awesome, right?
“Good Morning! It’s Ian Hart. This is part 2 of the Data Vs. Drama and right now I’m in up right outside of Vegas doing some master mind work and you know last week and the week before I’ve spoke to a lot of people about getting on the scale and how they have problems with the scale because they didn’t want to check in their weight, it made them feel bad, and I sent a video about Drama Vs. Data and so data is just a checkpoint to see where you’re at so you know where you’re going. Drama is not helpful for anybody. All right and so the feeling of shame or guilt is what many people feel when they step on the scale and it’s coming from a place of judgment because they think what’s on the scale is wrong according to them but there’s no such thing as wrong or right, right? so if you can’t accept yourself when you’re fat or a little bit above what you feel is right or wrong whatever it might be then you are not going to accept yourself when you are not completely thin, right? or completely where you want to be.
So self acceptance is the first thing so if you have trouble with the scale then you have trouble with self acceptance and taking away the judgment of yourself is the first step. So if you get on the scale and step on removing any wrong doing there’s no wrong or right. There’s no right number there’s no wrong number and that is removing the drama and just looking at it objectively like I’m 10lbs above where I would like to be all right and is realistic to get 10lbs down from where you are at to is another question you might wanna ask. And based on your activities and what you’re doing in your life. Are you really committed to that 10lbs down cause if you’re not then you know you’ll always going to feel wrong whenever you step on the scale.
So I wanted to make this video just to have anybody who has an issue with getting on the scale to think about it that nothing is right or wrong and as soon as we go from a place of judgment we go into drama and we’re no longer looking at it as data and the data is helpful to where we wanna go. The drama is taking us further from where we wanna go and it is creating shame and guilt which is low vibrational energy and is actually destructive to our health and well being and destructive to the people around us right? so self acceptance is coming from a high vibrational point of view where there is love, and acceptance is where transformation begins so if you saw any of my videos on the map of the scale of consciousness then you know that acceptance is where the actual transformation in the mind and the consciousness level begins and that’s where life actually takes off so if you’re not in the level of self acceptance then now it would be a progress or progress to work towards that level.
Alright, so I hope this helps and this is part 2 of Drama Vs. Data and now I’m about to go hit my workout at the hotel gym. All right, have a great day!”
Resistance training is so much more than just working out your muscles and losing weight/Fat. Strength training is increasingly promoted for its many health-related benefits including a lower risk to all causes of mortality, fewer cardiovascular events (i.e., heart attack, stroke), improved body composition, better glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity, and lower blood pressure in persons with pre-hypertension and hypertension.
Resistance training is linked to numerous mental health related items as well but is not limited to
Lessen depression, Linked to Anxiety and Self Esteem
Much less chronic fatigue, Impressively studies on exercise and fatigue show that exercise is clinically beneficial and even more beneficial than drug or cognitive-behavioral interventions
Improved quality of sleep, research indicates that physically active people usually have healthy sleep patterns and a lower risk to sleep apnea. Furthermore, the research shows that depressed persons with sleep disorders show a 30% improvement in sleep from a regular resistance training intervention. These results appear to become most effective after 8-10 weeks of consistent resistance training.
Improved cognition, improved cognition from exercise is likely to be multi-factorial adaptations involving new nerve cell generation in the brain, an increase in neurotransmitters (chemical substances that transmits nerve impulses across a synapse, and new brain blood vessels for more efficient oxygen delivery and waste product removal.
Improved self-esteem, High self-esteem is highly associated with positive physical and mental well-being. Let’s be real who doesn’t like to look good without clothes.

Beaufort Health and Fitness: 9 Minute WarmUp (Joint Mobility and Heart Rate/Core Temp Increase)
Great Beaufort health and fitness 9 minute warmup. If you ONLY did this daily you would feel less joint aches, more mentally prepped for the day, burn some extra fat, have a better mind body connection, stave of mental degeneration but consider it a warm up before the work out. It is pieces of some of the best Beaufort health and fitness warm up routines I have experienced to prep the whole body.
Dynamic Warm Up is super important. There is numerous reasons to it right? First off, it’s a psychological preparation so you’re getting your mind ready to go into the actual training session. It activates the nervous system so it helps you with strength, endurance, cardiovascular helped in the training.
But, the number 1 reason we do it is for injury prevention. Clients who are consistently not warming up to activate the heart rate, raise the core temperature, get the joints lubricated are going to end up with those joints aches and pains that start to build up each time they do not warm up.
Warming up in a proper way is how most people should be warming up and will get the most benefit from it. Most people will do 5-10 minutes of cardio to get their heart rate up which is fine, it gets your core temperature raise, it gives psychological preparation but those people that do that versus what we do in training will get to see the difference. They will feel stronger, they will feel more mobile, they will have more flexibility, more range of motion, psychologically will feel better and so, the results will be drastically better.
I will post later on a good Dynamic Warm Up that you can do on your own in about 5 minutes and a lot of those things are actually neurological activations…
Impressive and positive feedback keeps rolling in about these two EarthFIT Beaufort personal trainer Jessica and Jackson. I just got another email from a client with this feedback below.
“I wanted to write you and share some thoughts *#g and I have been talking about. Often, people who are content don’t share positive things!
…I have been really happy with Jackson and Jessica… Jackson is excellent at insuring our form and technique is where it should be. We have been noticeably energetic, but sore the last few weeks. We have actually been more sore the last few weeks than we have over the last year… with J and J, they will adjust the weight so we can do the number of reps we need to get in the exercise. I strongly believe that is the difference and for us, we feel the results!
We haven’t told either of them because there’s really no time to talk, so I hope you will share our appreciation for their style!”
“Hope all is well! Jackson and Jessica are doing a great job at Lay’s Island and I love working out with both of them. Out of all the “trainees” I think Jessica has been one of my favorites! Forceful when needed but attentive and very helpful and supportive. Jackson same thing he wants you to have a great workout without killing you! This has been very important to me personally with the elbow thing I have been dealing with. Which is finally getting better.”
There are a few misconceptions about weight training. Many people associate weight training with muscle bound body builders and pro football players. It is true that people with super fit bodies get that way by including weight training in their Beaufort fitness plan, but weight training is not what creates bulky muscles. In fact, weight training is an ideal way to speed up weight loss. It is also a great way to ward off aging and to increase energy. It’s really simple actually. EarthFIT has the equipment and a Beaufort personal trainer know how that can get you on your way to a healthier, fitter you.
One of the best ways to fight the aging process and to increase core strength is through Beaufort fitness: weight training. Getting older does not mean you have to become frail. Through weight training you can increase your strength and improve your general Beaufort fitness level. The stamina that you increase through the proper use of weights during your training session will easily help you to shed pounds and shave off the years. There is scientific evidence that supports the idea that a good weight-training program will actually turn back the clock and fight osteoporosis.
For the ladies that shy away from weight training because they fear getting “bulky” rest assured the professional staff at EarthFIT understand how the body works and can help you to tone up without the bulk. Most people don’t realize that by adding weights to your workout you are seriously increasing the benefit of your workouts. Adding weight training to your routine will directly translate into your everyday life and improve your performance in other activities making them easier to accomplish.
You can sculpt your body to get a longer leaner look by using the right amount of weights progressively, and doing the right exercises, but attempting to figure out what to do and how much to use on your own might be a bit difficult. In many cases people that have set out to do this on their own have found that they were not achieving the results that they expected and some even injured themselves by using the weights wrong with incorrect form (they might have even had a less-than-reputable trainer).
So they watch their investment go to waste and wind up selling their equipment turned clothes hanger at a garage sale. The professionals at EarthFIT can provide you with the guidance that you need to get the look that you want. You do not have to take on the task of designing a plan and sticking to it alone, EarthFIT can be your specialized support system.
The luxury of a personal trainer that can show you the ropes is not exclusively linked to the lifestyles of the rich and famous, just about anyone can afford to use the services at EarthFIT. The real question is; can you afford not to? It is actually cost effective to train at EarthFIT when you compare it to buying the equipment and the risk that you take having at it alone. Of course there are other gyms that offer the same equipment but what really sets EarthFIT apart is the Beaufort personal trainers that are there for YOU.
There is no doubt that the benefits are tremendous! EarthFIT can help you look and feel your very best through weight training. At EarthFIT all your excuses will go right out the window. You will want to be there and take advantage of this great program.
