I don’t care about your results

Dear Body by Greg Clients,

I want to thank you for choosing me to be a part of your new Special Journey. As I always explain, the time we spend together is all part of a “process.” It is a process we’ll experience together.

Now, I want to say something very important to you. You may think this is cruel, insensitive, or at the very least, a bad business decision. I hope you’re sitting down because this may hurt. O.K. here goes:

“I Don’t Care About Your Results!”

There, I said it. It’s true. But, before you think I’m some sort of mean, evil, horrible person, let me tell you what I DO CARE ABOUT.

  • I care that you receive the education and tools you need to help you reach whatever goals you’ve set for yourself.
  • I care about your expectations. This will be a continual conversation. In my 20 years of helping people achieve their goals, almost 100% start out with unrealistic expectations. We shall embark on our Special Journey one step at a time with very real achievable goals that are specific to you.
  • I care about motivating you and helping you to make the right decisions about food, activity, lifestyle and how it all affects your body (and your mind, too!).
  • I care about your effort and participation. This Special Journey we are on together requires effort and participation from both of us — equally. If one of us fails the journey will end quickly. Think of a row boat with only one oar rowing!
  • I care about never letting you down in terms of validation, motivation, education and always being there if, and when, you need me. You already have my email address and cell phone number.  Here they are again ( greg@bodybygreg.net)  (614-769-5542 ).
  • If your appointment is scheduled for 5:00 a.m., I want you to know that I’ll be in the Studio at 4:45 a.m. preparing for our time together.
  • I will email you at least 3 times a week with motivational and inspirational tips. This is not spam. You might think this is silly or even overkill. But it’s not. In my 20 years of experience this type of positive reinforcement is useful “mind programming” that will help us along our Special Journey together.
  • I will post tons of good, funny, useful, interesting and educational stuff on our “Client’s Only” Facebook Page to make sure you stay informed and motivated. I will send you an emergency text straight to your cell phone if for some reason we need to cancel morning session so you don’t waste your time.
  • I will always, ALWAYS tell you the truth. It’s NOT a “power play” or a way to “guilt trip” you into compliance. Telling the truth and being honest with each other is at the core of our relationship. And it works both ways. So, I expect you to tell me the truth, too.  Whether you ate cheesecake last night or you don’t like my new hair style!

At the end of our Special Journey together, the results will be whatever they are. The fact is, no two people get the exact same results. There are way too many variables to think of results as some sort of score card. So, why stress over it?

Here’s what’s most important.

At the end of this Special Journey you will have knowledge. You will have tools. You will have confidence. You will have absolutely everything you need should you decide to continue on your own.  Or, perhaps start a similar journey with someone special in your life….

My goal is to leave a strong, positive and lasting impact on you, that’s why I try to teach/coach every time we meet. I promise to give you my best. 

I am looking forward to our next training session.

Win the Battle Against Fat Cells

As a fitness expert, you know I’ll never promise you a pill is going to be the answer to that “jiggle in your wiggle.” If you want six pack abs you’re going to have to work for them.

There is some very promising research out there in regards to a dietary supplement you’ve probably been hearing a lot about.

Yes, I’m talking about Essential Fatty Acids. You probably have heard them called something like Fish Oil pills.

How’s this for good news?!

*University of Georgia researchers have found something pretty amazing about  Essential Fatty Acid supplements containing DHA. Get this: The actually help STOP the conversion of pre-fat cells into fat cells by causing them to die out before they can mature.

Once a pre-fat cell becomes a fat cell, well, there’s no turning back. You’ve got that fat cell for life. Imagine, actually decreasing the accumulation of fat by taking an Essential Fatty Acid supplement containing DHA!

Now let me do my best infomercial voice for you…

But wait, there’s more!

Seriously, that’s not the only benefit of Essential Fatty Acid supplements containing DHA.

According to studies** done at the University of South Australia people that combined exercise with Essential Fatty Acid supplements containing DHA saw greater fat loss than the test group that only exercised and did not take the supplement.

How can you not be excited by these research studies??

Now, personally, I don’t like Fish Oil pills because they cause you to burp like crazy. If you’ve ever taken them you know exactly what I mean. And they aren’t always the highest quality.

I prefer EFA Icon from Prograde Nutrition because they use Krill Oil. It’s been found to be a superior source of Essential Fatty Acids containing DHA. Plus, with EFA Icon there are NO fish burps. And I haven’t even mentioned all the amazing health benefits from this dietary supplement.

If you’re looking to accelerate your fat loss results than I really recommend you go with Prograde Nutrition’s EFA Icon. You can get it here:  Prograde Icon


PS – Remember, EFA Icon is NOT a miracle solution. You will need sound nutrition and exercise. BUT the research is there. It’s definitely a supplement with powerful fat loss properties. Get it here

7 Things Fit People Do

You’ve heard that being fit is all about the lifestyle, and not the quick fix, so today I’d like to give you a glimpse the habits that fit people have. These following seven habits are held by successfully fit people…wonder if you could apply a few to your own life.

1. They See Each Day with Perspective

Fail to meet your fitness goals today? Move on. Tomorrow is another day to make smarter decisions. When you wake up, rededicate yourself to your fitness goals without beating yourself about whatever mistakes you made in the past. After all, you can’t change what you did yesterday. All you can control is right now. So get to it!

2. They Know Their Bodies

When you finish a workout, you should feel good. If you don’t, then something needs to change. Either your diet or routine is throwing you off. Fit people know how everything they do affects their body and they take steps to avoid those things that make them not feel and perform their best. Learn how your body responds and care for it accordingly.

3. They Find Ways around the Reasons

If you’ve ever wondered why you can’t quite get fit, it may be your proclivity for caving to pressure. And that pressure may be self-induced. Fit people do not give into excuses for why they shouldn’t exercise. Quite the contrary. They are continually finding reasons why they should hit the gym and find pockets of time to do it—even if the trip to the gym is shorter than usual.

4. They Eat and Sleep Well

Study after study has shown the benefit of eating whole, unprocessed foods. It provides energy and strength, helps you feel full throughout the day, and makes your time in the gym as fruitful as possible. Getting good sleep is equally as important, as it keeps all your bodily systems in rhythm. Put these two fit activities together and you’re well on your way to optimal fitness.

5. They Track Progress
For some, keeping tabs on health progress is about as exciting as watching paint dry. Once you get into the routine, however, you will become a believer in the power of tracking your progress. Tracking serves to both reward and motivate you, as you see that the countless hours in the gym and smart food choices lead to a healthier weight and greater strength—a.k.a. better overall fitness and health.

6. They Think during Exercise

It can be easy to mindlessly run on a treadmill at the gym if you’re not careful. Just remember that fit people don’t do such a thing. They’re very intentional about everything they do at the gym. This means if you want to be fit, you should put some brainpower into what you include in your workout and how you perform each repetition. This allows you to get maximum benefit from your gym time and reduces the risk of injury.

7. They Lean on a Trainer

The final thing fit people do is rely on someone with lots of knowhow in the realm of fitness. This is why my clients have such a high success rate in achieving their goals – because I make sure that they stick with it! I have a sincere interest in your overall health and well-being and know how to help you reach the goals that can seem so far away when you’re trying to achieve it on your own.

Can you remember a time when you felt completely discouraged with your body? It’s easy to beat yourself up when the body that you have is miles from the one you want. When negative emotions flood over you resist the urge to get down on yourself, rather turn the tides in your favor. You may have heard the expression ‘emotion creates motion’. This is a very powerful tool. Channel your dissatisfaction with your body into ‘motion’. Take control of your body and put a plan into action.

15 Fool-Proof Fat Loss Tips

  1. Eat 4-6 small meals day a day instead of the usual 2-3 large meals. Eating frequently will help regulate and boost your metabolism to burn more calories.
  2. Consume whole foods that are high in fiber and low in sugar, such as lean protein sources (lean beef, chicken, fish, and whey protein), fruits & vegetables (oranges, apples, strawberries, blueberries, broccoli, peppers, asparagus, carrots, nuts (almonds, cashews, & walnuts), and whole grains.
  3. Eat low-glycemic carbohydrates such as vegetables, whole-wheat products and oatmeal instead of refined processed carbohydrates which usually come in a box or a bag.
  4. Consume 25-35 grams of fiber per day. Fiber will help satisfy hunger pangs as well as control insulin and blood sugar levels which tend to promote fat storage.
  5. Eat some type of lean protein at each meal. Protein helps to satisfy hunger and provide the necessary building blocks to maintain lean body mass while losing body fat.
  6. Consume adequate amounts of healthy fat foods such as olive oil, walnuts, almonds, Omega-3 fortified eggs, or other Omega-3 products.  Healthy fats are great antioxidants as well as help with brain function and many other essential processes that take place in the body on a daily basis. Essential Fatty Acids, according to clinical studies, could also help prevent certain diseases. To guarantee you’re consuming enough Omega-3 supplement your diet with EFA Icon.
  7. Eat 5-10 servings of fruit and vegetables a day to meet your micronutrient needs.  Vegetables also contain a good amount of fiber and help to control appetites and curb hunger. Additionally, VGF25+ provides the power-packed nutrition of 25 whole vegetables, greens, and fruits in a convenient “super pill.”
  8. Consume Green Tea or Water instead of calorie-filled drinks such as soft drinks.  Green Tea has many health benefits and you should be drinking 1ml of non-caffeinated fluid for every calorie that you consume. This works out between (8-12) 8oz glasses of Green Tea or Water a day.
  9. Balance your fat intake for the day.  One-third should come from saturated fats, 1/3 from monounsaturated fats, and 1/3 from polyunsaturated fats. Again, ensure you’re consuming antioxidant-rich Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids by incorporating EFA Icon into your nutritional plan.
  10. Consistent fat loss requires good habits. If you want to create good habits, then you need plan. Therefore, map out your meals every day and follow them. If you follow your plan everyday for 2-3 weeks, you will form habits that become part of your daily routine and part of your life.
  11. Incorporate “superfoods” into your meal plan on a daily basis. Some examples are salmon, low-fat plain yogurt, tomatoes, spinach, mixed berries, whole oats, mixed nuts, olive oil, flax seeds(or flax meal), green tea, and various beans. Many of the super nutrition found in these “superfoods” are also found in VGF25+.
  12. Keep total fat intake under 30% for the day.  This can easily be accomplished by avoiding “extra” fats such as butter, sour cream, mayonnaise… This doesn’t mean you have to completely eliminate these items, just use them sparingly and avoid adding them to foods whenever possible.
  13. EXERCISE! Yes, you can lose weight just by changing your eating habits. But very few people succeed long-term – and it takes much longer to lose fat – when they don’t exercise. And something most people don’t realize is, just how critical ingesting the research-proven Protein to Carbohydrate ratio is to optimizing the results of your workout efforts.
  14. Record what you eat and drink. You will be amazed by what you find. Keeping a food journal is critical to your success because you need it to evaluate and analyze your current eating patterns. If your fat loss efforts are stagnant, the answer can usually be found in your food journal.
  15. Follow the 90% rule. If you can follow your plan 90% of the time, you will soon see unwanted fat melt off your body. However, if you find yourself breaking these rules more than 90% of the time, your chances of failing increase significantly.

Override the Urge to Quit (9 ways)

1. Remember Why You Started
In the middle of a workout, it can be hard to push through another set of lunges, squats, or deadlifts. Don’t let the difficulty stop you. Remember why you’re there in the first place—the resolution you made at the beginning of the year, the desire to be healthier than you’ve ever been, the plan to trim extra pounds off your frame. Whatever the reason, keep this front and center to stay the course.

2. Speak Positive Truths
A few weeks before you felt like giving up, you could take on the world. In that mindset, you were continuously telling yourself that you could tackle whatever monsters showed up at the gym. What’s different now? Remind yourself over and over that you can do it! Then take your words to heart and get back on the treadmill and under the barbell.

3. It’s Just a Valley
Like all of life, the desire to work out comes in waves. Yesterday, there was nothing you’d rather do. Today, working out is the last thing you would do if given a choice. So don’t give yourself a choice. Because as difficult as it may be today, once you knock out this routine, tomorrow may be the day you fall in love with exercise all over again.

4. Play It Loud
Having problems staying focused in the gym? Get back on track by turning up you favorite workout tracks. By making it loud enough to drown out the distracting noises all around you, you may find that you become more engaged in your routine and have greater endurance during each day’s workout. Should you find both of these because of your music, don’t be surprised. Researchers have found the exact same benefits.

5. They Expect You to Quit
Over the years, you may have made big plans. Whether to travel the world, change the world, drop a bad habit, or pick up a good one, your friends have seen you fail at more than one attempt. Or maybe they’ve failed at their own attempts. Whatever the cause, they doubt you’ll succeed. Walking away from one workout may not seem like a big deal, but it can lead to a lifetime of walking away, ultimately proving the naysayers right.

6. Look at the Ladies
Or the guys. Whoever gives you motivation to look and feel better, keep them in mind when you feel like giving up. Married with kids? Keep your spouse in mind. Because while you may have already landed the best-looking guy or gal around, nothing says, “I love you” like continued dedication to look your best for your sweet thing.

7. Eat Well
Getting fit and losing weight often go hand in hand. However, if you think you can increase your fitness while also cutting the calories you’re consuming, you may be mistaken. If your body doesn’t get enough good fuel, you’re not going to feel like doing much of anything—especially rigorous exercise. So be sure to fuel up properly before and after your workout to keep your body working on all cylinders.

8. Get to Bed
No matter what time of day you work out, you’re going to fall flat if you don’t get the shuteye you need. Not only does sleep give you energy to get through the day, but it also helps keep your body in rhythm so it reacts properly when pushed. Hit the hay at a decent hour each night and watch your urge to quit go away like a bad dream.

9. Picture the New You
I know you can see it. You, at your goal weight, tight, trim and looking like a million bucks. Don’t lose sight of this picture, until it becomes the reality that you see in the mirror every day. You have what it takes to become your best self – I know this because I’ve seen scores of my clients before you achieve greatness. Don’t lose sight of your potential – I know I won’t.

If you aren’t yet one of my clients, then take this opportunity to do something wonderful for yourself. Call or email today to get started on the most effective fitness program that you’ll ever find.

Remember that…Winners never quit and quitters never win.

Refresh Your Workout (5 Ways)

Has your exercise routine gotten stale?

Boredom with your routine quickly leads to shorter and shorter workouts, and then before you know it you’re skipping the gym altogether.

While it’s common knowledge that the most effective exercise routines aren’t routine at all, most of us stumble through the same exercises every time we hit the gym. And then we wonder why our results are lackluster.

In order to really see results your routine must continuously change and challenge your muscles in new ways. Here are 5 ways to refresh your existing workout routine in order to see quicker and more dramatic results…


Refresh #1: Circuit Training
The days of doing single sets of each exercise are over, now it’s all about circuit training. Increase your workout intensity by creating a circuit with 4 exercises and moving quickly between each one. Circuits will keep your heart rate up for longer periods at a time and will force your muscles to work double time.

Always choose different exercises to be included in your circuit, to really keep up the intensity and the challenge. Also vary the resistance and increase the load at each session.

Refresh #2: Go Heavier

Most of us grab the same weights each time that we exercise, simply out of habit. Unfortunately this is one habit that is seriously hindering your results. Next time that you reach for a set of dumbbells grab heavier ones. This will force you to do fewer repetitions, and will challenge your muscles with greater intensity.

Always use a spotter when using a heavier weight than you’re used to.

Refresh #3: One Side at a Time

Do you find yourself doing presses, curls, raises and squats with both arms/legs at the same time? Increase the challenge and focus by singling out each arm and leg alone. Focus all of your effort and concentration on that single movement and be sure to increase the weight as you’re able.

Have you tried single legged squats lately? The act of using one leg forces all of your core stabilizing muscles to pitch in. Start without any weight at all, simply focus on your form and range of motion. You’ll be surprised how sore you feel the next day!

Refresh #4: Pump Up Music

Do you have a personal exercise playlist? This is a quick way to instantly add some pep to your workout. Spend time selecting each song to add to the playlist. These songs should be ones that get your toes tapping and get you in the mood to move. Songs with a strong beat are always a good choice.

Make your playlist long enough to cover your entire workout time. It’s great to have fun, upbeat songs without any repeats. Unless you have a specific song that really gets you going – in that case play it on repeat!

Refresh #5: Know Yourself

Are you highly competitive? Then the best way to push yourself during your next workout is to exercise with someone who is in a little better shape than you. You’ll spend the workout pushing yourself to new heights.

Are you happiest in nature? Then move your workout to the great outdoors. Find a new and challenging outdoor activity to immerse yourself in.

Are you a social person? Then structure your workouts around a group of likeminded, fit individuals. Don’t try to go at it alone.

Tap into that unique part of yourself that make you tick and cater your workout time in a way that best suits your needs. You’ll be happier with your results and you’ll be more likely to stick with it for a longer period of time.

Use these quick and effective workout refreshers in your routine to instantly see improved results. Don’t forget to change things up often, and to always keep your muscles guessing.

If designing and redesigning your workouts doesn’t sound like something you want to spend time figuring out, don’t sweat it, let me do the work for you. My programs are specially designed to blast fat and to build muscle in all the right places.

And you’ll never get bored or do the same routine twice when you’re working out with me!

Seriously?! Don’t fall for this

The madness has to stop.

This might come across as a soapbox rant, and for that I apologize, but trust me when I say that this is a message that needs to be spread.

Your fat loss depends on it.

We all want to be fit and lean, right? So why do we fool ourselves into thinking that we are eating healthy…when our diets consist of so many processed foods?








Title: misleading food labels
Owner: StayFitNutrition


Don’t fall for it: so-called healthy packaged foods are NOT guilt-free.

I can’t tell you how many folks I’ve seen chow down on organic, all-natural, gluten-free, vegan or high-fiber packaged foods…only to see their fat loss halt and reverse.

What did you expect?

Packaged snacks and desserts are going to stop fitness results and encourage fat storage. Every. Single. Time.

Even if it says healthy, or all-natural, or high-fiber, or organic, or gluten-free, or vegan.

If it’s processed and packaged then it’s getting in the way of your results.

If you are serious about shaping up your body then throw out the packaged foods and opt for wholesome, real foods instead.

Start with these:

  • lean protein
  • fruits
  • vegetables
  • nuts
  • seeds
  • avocados

When it comes to fat loss, eating clean is half of the battle. The other half is all about effective, challenging and consistent exercise.

Simple Tuna Salad

Here’s a simple and light version of tuna salad. It cuts out high-calorie mayonnaise and adds some chopped fruit and vegetables to really liven it up. This is a great recipe to enjoy as you journey towards your fitness goal. Servings: 4

Here’s what you need…

  • 1 green apple, chopped
  • 2 green onions, tops only, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 cans albacore tuna, in drained
  • 1 Tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup red grapes, halved
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl and serve immediately. I like to serve this salad in large butter lettuce leaves, or scooped onto avocado halves. Enjoy!

Nutritional Analysis: One serving equals: 222 calories, 16g fat, 9g carbohydrate, 194g fiber, and 14g protein.
