This course is about how to get in the best shape of your life, feel the best you've ever felt, and have more energy to accomplish your lifetime goals. The course is designed for people who are trying to lose weight. It's centered on the three secrets of fitness—nutrition, strength training, and cardiovascular fitness—and unlike other fads, it lasts for a lifetime.
The course is structured into three main sections, giving you tips and advice on how to master the three core elements of fitness. We go over topics like when to eat, how much to eat, and how eating too little can have a negative effect on fat loss. We discuss how to exercise and which muscle groups will give you the biggest benefit for time in.
I go over willpower, and exactly what it is that makes humans follow through on their goals and achieve what it is they want in life. We discuss habits and how changing your fitness can ripple out and affect every single aspect of your life.
Introduction to the course.
My name is Eric Earle and I'm passionate about fitness. I'm a certified personal trainer (CPT) and certified corrective exercise specialist (CES), both through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).
In this course we are going to learn about the three core elements of fitness: Nutrition, Strength Training, and Cardiovascular Fitness.
This course is focused on losing weight and keeping it off. We will also explore how to live a long, healthy, and energetic life.
This video is a overview of the course. The course is divided into three core sections: Nutrition, Strength Training, and Cardiovascular Fitness. In this particular lecture we will set goals. It's very important that you physically write your goals down at the beginning of this course. Losing 45 pounds or 100 pounds starts right now: with a journal and a pen. So let's get started.
It's very important that we back up our goal with a strong WHY. WHY do you want to lose weight? Discovering your personal WHY is the most important part of this lecture. Hint: it may be deeper than you think.
Nutrition. A lot of people don't understand it.
In my experience, when people first try to lose weight, they radically decrease their calories. This shock to the system sends your body into Starvation Mode, and actually has the reverse affect of what we intend. Learn how to overcome this in this video.
This lecture will teach you how to fuel your body and lose weight at the same time. This lessons also contains important foods to avoid—like sugar! (Sugar triggers our body to start storing fat.)
Cutting out sugar may be hard. But remember your WHY. WHY do you want to lose weight? If your WHY is strong enough, it will pull you through any adversity.
This lecture also discusses the "What The Hell Effect."
We will also learn about self-compassion and forgiveness—and why they are crucial to success in fitness (and in life!).
In this lecture we will also learn the Number One Most Important Rule For Losing Weight (and getting fit, too).
This lecture focuses on metabolism, and questions like: Should I eat dairy? What about meat? Do vitamins and supplements work? What about fat-free items, should I eat those?
The answers are in here.
What's one of the worst foods you can eat? It's something you might have had for breakfast this morning.
What does sugar do to the body? Why do we crave sweets?
Again, the answers are in here.
This lectures follows Betty, a 250 pound woman who wants to lose 60 to 70 pounds (or more). It describes a sample meal plan—when and what to eat.
Learn about why it's important to eat your biggest meals in the morning.
This lecture focuses on strength training.
What happens when we build muscle? We burn more calories every day, all the time, by doing nothing. Muscles take calories to upkeep, so when we have stronger muscles, we burn more calories. This helps us lose weight—it's one of the most important parts to overall fitness and weight loss.
Learn why it's important to do a little bit of exercise every single day.
This course will help you understand the basics of weight training. It will teach you how to build lean, toned, defined muscles all over your body.
This is a quick and important lecture. This lesson will teach you the proper form for squatting and other leg exercises. Listen and learn about some of the biggest mistakes that beginners make—and how to correct them.
This lesson will teach you about the important numbers for weight training:15 reps, 3 sets, and 5 exercises.
1.) 15 Squats X 3
2.) 15 Lunges X 3
3.) 15 Leg Presses X 3
4.) 15 Leg Curls X 3
5.) 15 Jump Squats X 3
This section is all about cardiovascular exercise. On the days when you aren't lifting weights it's important that you do cardio.
There are two types of cardio: anaerobic and aerobic. Listen and learn about both.
Learn why anaerobic cardio might be a secret to your success.
Advice about how to achieve your fitness goals.
What is one very important thing that you should not be doing? ...
This is an extremely important bonus lesson. This lecture is profound. Many things in life are dictated not only by the positive actions you take, but also by the actions that you don't take.
Time for one more bonus lesson. Hint: it might be time to set some more goals.
Thank you very much for watching. Please feel free to email me any questions, any time of day or night: firstname.lastname@example.org.
