A very common question that gets asked is 🗣 “Why aren’t I getting the results I want⁉️”
.
To answer this question we would need to know what your overall goals are BUT, we can have a look at some generic categories that will have a positive/negative impact depending on how you approach them.
.
1️⃣You’re just going through the motions - just showing up for 15 minutes  won’t be enough to satisfy your goals. You need to make sure your progressing and pushing yourself every week... this doesn’t mean leg pressing until you puke 🤮, it means finding a program that works for you and challenging yourself by adding weight/sets/reps and/or implementing different variations
.
2️⃣ You’re under recovering - this could be under sleeping, under eating, over training, or high levels of stress... they all will have a negative impact on your health if not approached properly
.
3️⃣ Too much too soon - we see people do this all the time ... they go hard for the first week of every month then aren’t seen again until the beginning of next month. CONSISTENCY is what we strive for
.
Not having any structure can be very discouraging which is why I have put together dozens of blogs that can help you achieve your goals 👉🏼 #linkinbio

Does the gym intimidate you⁉️
.
When you’re starting out the gym can be an extremely intimating place, there’s always the fear that everyone is starring at you and judging what you’re doing
.
Here’s what you need to know 🤓
.
✔️Nobody cares what you’re doing
✔️Nobody is judging you
✔️If they are doing any of the above it’s probably because they don’t know what they’re doing
.
Here’s what you need to do 😈
.
✅ Ask for help - there’s no shame in either asking a friend for help or hiring a trainer to get an idea on how everything works
✅ Focus on consistency - commit to going to the gym 2-3x/week rather than 7 consecutive days, you will avoid getting burnt out
✅ Get involved - having the knowledge to apply everything properly will not only keep you safe but also more motivated as you learn more and more about your personal fitness, you’ll learn to love this $h!t
✅ Don’t give up - has this failed in the past? Who cares! Let’s give it another try! I promise you EVERYONE can overcome this
.
Looking to get started but have no idea how to start!? Let me know and we can overcome this together. Make 2019 your best year yet 🙌🏼

Who’s looking forward to 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣9️⃣ ⁉️
.
Throughout the year I talked to many people who didn’t follow through with their resolutions and this is what I gathered ⬇️
.
1️⃣ They were treating a marathon like a sprint 🏃🏻 - I’ve said it many times, consistency is over perfection. Think of the bigger picture when you start taking action and be in it for the long haul
.
2️⃣ They had no structure 🗓- Not knowing where and how to start is the biggest thing that will hold you back from making your first move, I’d suggest talking to someone who can help you come up with a plan
.
3️⃣ Program hopping 🐰- I’m extremely guilty of this and I know many others are to. Find a program that seems attainable and make sure you FINISH IT rather than looking for the “next best thing”
.
Take control of the new year and follow through with the promises you made to yourself!

🗣 “What’s the secret to losing body-fat?”
.
The truth is many of us have been sucked into those fat loss scams that flood the internet. This specific question has ignited a multi-billion dollar industry and left us with horrible products and services
.
Here are 5️⃣ honest truths about fat-loss
.
✔️ Fast results aren’t sustainable 🚫 - most people I’ve met who lost a drastic amount of weight in a short period of time ended up putting it back on shortly after, these is what we call crash dieting
.
✔️ Work at it longer ⏰ - this ties in to my last point, it’s better to look at your goals in a 6-12 month time frame rather than 6-12 weeks
.
✔️ Fat loss isn’t a walk in the park 🚶🏻‍♂️- for the most part you’re going to challenge yourself to attain results and you’ll have times where weight fluctuations will discourage you, but you’ll have to work through these times and stick to the plan
.
✔️Flexibility is better 🍦 - for some people dieting and fat loss is easy. But from what I’ve seen in most people is that deprivation of foods they enjoy usually leads them straight to failure
.
✔️Learning leads to success 🤓 - if you’re not learning throughout the process of your journey you won’t be able to ever make it work for yourself and you’ll always be faced with greater challenges
.
These are only 5️⃣ of MANY points but concentrating on these will greatly increase your chances of success!

What are you focusing on when you’re at the gym? 🤔
.
If you’re answer has anything to do with the number on the scale I want you carefully read this post ‼️
.
Weight fluctuation is super common and happens for a number of reasons. Sodium, carbohydrates, food weight, medication, and alcohol can lead to huge weight fluctuations that will discourage, anger, and prevent you from moving forward.🤬
.
Instead start focusing on the following non-scale victories that will motivate you to keep working hard which will eventually lead to greater fat loss! (in most cases)
.
Use the following questions as a personal checklist 📝 ⬇️
.
✔️ Have my energy levels increased?🕺🏻
✔️ Am I sleeping better? 😴
✔️ Are my clothes fitting better? 👕
✔️ Am I getting stronger? 🏋🏻‍♀️
✔️ Am I moving/lifting better? 💪🏼
.
This is just a small list of non-scale victories and if you said yes to ANY of them that’s a major win! Remember focus on these instead of obsessing over the numbers on the scale!

“Free weights vs machines”
.
What’s better? 🧐
.
If I had to answer this question quickly I’d say free weights, but this doesn’t mean you ALWAYS need to pick one or the other
.
Remember we want to be training the 6️⃣ major movement patterns ⬇️
.
✔️ Hinging
✔️Squatting
✔️Pushing
✔️Pulling
✔️ Lungeing
✔️ Carrying
.
By having full access to free weights you will be able to train all these movements efficiently, most machines won’t allow you to do this
.
This doesn’t mean we need to completely disregard using machines, we just need to know when to appropriately use them. Here’s some benefits of machines
.
✔️easy to learn
✔️great for hypertrophy work
✔️useful for certain rehab exercises
✔️you can isolate specific muscle groups effectively
.
A great rule of them is to spend the majority of your time increasing your skills in the movement patterns I stated above, then compliment those movements with different free weight exercises and/or machines for added hypertrophy work
.
At the end of the day it depends on your personal capabilities, different things will work better/worse on different people.

Here it goes 💥
.
The most common question I’ve ever been asked!
.
Will lifting weights make me look too bulky? 🧐
.
Well, every women is going to have a definition of what “too bulky” means to them
.
I’ve concluded that there is a fear of gaining significant amounts of muscle mass in a short period of time ⏰
.
We will argue that women don’t have same hormone profile as men therefore it’s nearly impossible for them to gain significant amounts of muscle mass, which is generally true but we can’t speak for 100% of the population. Some women may gain muscle fairly easily (this is a good thing)
.
In the rare occasion a women feels they have gotten “too bulky” from lifting weights it’s because they have neglected their nutrition and have also begun to gain body fat along with muscle mass! So of course they may begin to feel uncomfortable if this is the case
.
Overall we can 100% conclude gaining significant amounts of muscle mass does not happen overnight 🌃
.
This leaves us with the question, what will lifting weights and proper nutrition lead to?
.
✅ Mindset change - instead of always chasing a lower number on the scale it’s much healthier to focus on performance based goals (5 chin-ups⁉️)
.
✅ Gaining muscle mass - remember muscle mass isn’t the enemy, higher amounts of body fat is. What will lower body fat and more muscle mass give you? That strong sculpted look you’ve been chasing 🏃🏾‍♀️
.
✅ Confidence - I’ve never worked with women before who had a decrease in confidence from lifting weights 🏋🏻‍♀️
.
These are 3️⃣ of many benefits! Feel free to message me if you’re wanting to get started!

Did you happen to fall off the fitness wagon this summer? 🤕
.
Don’t worry! Follow the tips below and you will be on track before fall comes 🍂⬇️
.
☑️ Don’t go too hard too fast 🤕 - remember, you haven’t done this for a long time so getting yourself back on a routine is your number one priority, not necessarily going 💯% your first week back
.
☑️ Strategically track your progress 📈- at this point progress will be your best motivator, don’t obsessively step on the scale everyday but rather ask yourself the following questions; Are my clothes fitting better? How are my energy levels? Am I feeling more confident in and outside of the gym?
.
☑️ Ask yourself why 🤷🏻‍♂️- if you have no idea why you want to start prioritizing your health and fitness again chances are you’re not going to follow through with anything.
.
☑️ Find what works for you 💪🏼- if you hate doing certain activities they won’t be prioritized, get out there and try different things!
.
☑️ Get organized 🗄- find a plan and stick to it no matter what! .
How can Gents Fitness help you get back on track?

We talk about some of the best things we can do to have a positive impact on our fitness & health, but are some of our habits holding us back? .
Let’s have a closer look at 5️⃣ things you need to consider when trying to maximize your health and fitness. Ask yourself the following questions ⬇️
.
✔️Am I constantly hitting the snooze button? 😴 - we stress how important sleep is but do not mistake laying in bed for actual sleep. If you’re someone who sets their alarm 3 hours before you’re supposed to wake up you’re disrupting your REM sleep which is having a negative impact on the quality of your sleep
.
✔️Am I over training? 🤕 - how much your body can handle is going to very individualized, but you need to prioritize your recovery just as much as your training. If you notice signs such as; lack of motivation, increase in injuries, sleep pattern changes, and/or prolonged muscle soreness you may be a victim of overtraining and need to reconsider your training program
.
✔️Am I eating packaged foods? 🍫 - A lot of people will resort to frozen entrees that claim they are healthy. The issue here is that many of these foods have unbalanced macronutrients (low protein/high fat) and lack a lot of micronutrients that will leave you unsatisfied and hungry
.
✔️ How many hours has my Netflix been on? 💻 - most of us (including myself) are guilty of watching Netflix marathons until we fall asleep. The problem here is that the blue light from your screen decreases the amount of melatonin production which will have a negative impact on your sleep
.
✔️Am I a social drinker or a binge drinker 🍹 - it doesn’t matter which one you chose, both of them  an lead to major health problems. It doesn’t matter if you spread 12 drinks out over the week or have them in one night you will experience  the side effects regardless. Not saying you can’t occasionally have fun, but you need to pick and choose your battles wisely
.
Have further questions about these? Send me DM I’d love to answer your questions!

The issue here is that many of these foods have unbalanced macronutrients (low protein/high fat) and lack a lot of micronutrients that will leave you unsatisfied and hungry . ️ How many hours has my Netflix been on? - most of us (including myself) are guilty of watching Netflix marathons until we fall asleep. The problem here is that the blue light from your screen decreases the amount of melatonin production which will have a negative impact on your sleep . ️Am I a social drinker or a binge drinker - it doesn’t matter which one you chose, both of them an lead to major health problems. It doesn’t matter if you spread 12 drinks out over the week or have them in one night you will experience the side effects regardless. Not saying you can’t occasionally have fun, but you need to pick and choose your battles wisely . Have further questions about these? Send me DM I’d love to answer your questions! . #gentsfitness #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #girlswholift #girlswhosquat #health #healthylifestyle #gym #gymmotivation #toronto #yorkregion #durhamregion #stouffville #markham - 6 months ago

If you’re involved in the fitness industry you know that there is millions of people sharing information daily 🙌🏼
.
How do you know whether this is good information or bad information 🧐
.
Let’s have a look below at 5️⃣ pieces of advice you should NEVER listen to 🙅🏻‍♂️
.
1️⃣ You need to train on unstable surfaces to build functional strength ⛰- NO! Balancing in the real world occurs on stable surfaces not on a bosu ball. Therefore build your strength by doing compound movements on stable surfaces
.
2️⃣ No pain no gain 🤕 - were not going to disregard working hard and sweating but we do want to steer away from pushing through pains that can potentially lead to an injury. If your lower back is in serious pain should you be trying to deadlift heavy? No, seeing a professional to diagnose and help you overcome the issue is the best thing you can do. Hey, I know a guy! @nick_the_at 👨🏼‍🔬
.
3️⃣ You can spot reduce stubborn body fat 🤬- I’m sorry but doing 500 sit-ups is not going to help get rid of your belly fat. Try having a closer look at your nutrition and training to see if you’re doing everything in your best interest
.
4️⃣ Fast results are better - I’ve seen many people lose weight FAST by eating minimal calories and jogging every day. They also experienced negative side effects such as a massive drop in performance, increased fatigue, and they immediately gained the weight back when there old habits returned.
.
5️⃣ You’re not even trying if you haven’t spent a pay cheque at your local supplement store 💊💰 - most supplements promise gimmicky quick fixes that just don’t live up to the hype. Make sure your diet and training is on the right track before even thinking about supplements
.
Got any question 🆘🤨⁉️ Send me a DM and I would be happy to answer them for you ‼️

🗣 “Should I be using a food scale?”
.
It really depends on what you’re overall fitness goals are but let’s have a look at some of the benefits of using a food scale to your advantage!
.
1️⃣ Accuracy 📍- when starting a new nutrition plan that has a prescribed amount of macros you may want to invest in a food scale to ensure you’re eating the correct portion sizes. It’s super easy to over eat especially if you don’t know what correct portion sizes should look like
.
2️⃣ Learn the correct portion sizes 🍽 - like I said in the first point it may be super hard for you to eyeball your portion sizes. By implementing a food scale into your routine you will begin to learn what the correct portion sizes should look like therefore you won’t always have to rely on it
.
3️⃣ Inexpensive 💰- if you think you’re going to have to break the bank for this go to your local wal-mart and you will realize that it is an inexpensive product. I’ve been using a $15 dollar food scale for the last 4 years and it works great!
.
4️⃣ Easy & practical ✅ - if you’ve ever used a calculator you are definitely qualified to use this product!
.
A food scale should be used only as a tool to help you with your nutritional needs. You should not always NEED it to survive, if you think you need it to to enjoy any meal or bring it to restaurants you need to rethink your game plan!

Tired of making little to no progress in the gym 😴⁉️
.
Unfortunately a large portion of the fitness & health industry has led us to believe we’re supposed to see dramatic results with minimal effort in little to no time 📆
.
Real change takes time! How much time? Well, it depends on the individual! But you can start by bringing your attention to these 5️⃣ areas!

Ask yourself the following questions; ⤵️
.
1️⃣ Do I really know what I’m trying to achieve? 🧐- Develop set of goals and write out a plan on how you’re going to achieve them. If you have no idea what you’re trying to achieve chances are you won’t be putting forth the required efforts!
.
2️⃣ Am I meeting my nutritional needs? 🥙 - chances are you have no idea what you’re eating and how much you are eating. How do you expect to lose body fat if you’re in a calorie surplus? Micros and Macros DO matter!
.
3️⃣ Is my weight training routine efficient? 🏋🏻‍♀️- are you coming to the gym 2-3 times per week and wandering around hoping you’re getting an efficient workout in? You need a well thought out training plan to reach you goals, so stop mindlessly walking around the gym!
.
4️⃣ Is my timeline realistic? 📆- are you trying to lose 30 pound in 30 days? Sounds very unrealistic right? But unfortunately many “fitness gurus” promise quick results that only end up in letting the individual down
.
5️⃣ What do my daily habits look like? 🍫🍻 - alcohol and mindless snacking is a huge issue when it comes to health & fitness. Not only are you putting useless calories into your body but your performance in and outside of the gym is being dramatically stalled!
.
These are only 5️⃣ out of many areas you need to focus on to ensure you’re maximizing your results. In conclusion if you’re not seeing the progress you want chances are you need to take a step back and give those areas the attention they deserve ⬆️
.
If there is anything you need help with click the #linkinbio📲💻 or DM me! I would love to help you out!

With an industry full of fads and quick fixes it’s hard to rule out what works and what doesn’t work 🙅🏻‍♂️
.
Let’s have a look at what we should avoid in the fitness industry 😷
.
❌Fad diets - this is any diet that promises quick weight loss by usually putting you into a large calorie deficit and limiting a large portion of food selection
.
❌ Cardio only programs 🏃🏻‍♂️🏃🏾‍♀️- cardio works great to help compliment your fitness routine and depending on your goals it may be the focus of your routine. BUT we should never disregard strength training and reap all the benefits it gives us
.
❌Most supplements 💊 - unfortunately the supplement industry has lead us to believe we NEED “special” blends of supplements to achieve any level of fitness. This is not true! There are supplements out there that we benefit from but the majority of them are not worth the investment. Check out the blog “3️⃣ supplements that should be taking” on our website to help you choose what works be for you
.
🗣Here’s 6️⃣ tips to guarantee results ⬇️
.
🔥Strength training 🏋🏻‍♀️- Strength training is not a fad! It really works and if you haven’t started implementing it we suggest you do as soon as possible
.
🔥Consistency 🎯- consistency over perfection ALWAYS
.
🔥Balanced nutrition 🥙- whether you’re following the 80/20 or 90/10 rule this is a category that CANNOT be ignored if you want to be successful
.
🔥Sleep 😴- sleep deprivation will have a negative impact on your fitness goals. Be sure to read #teamnosleep part 1, 2 and 3 on our website to increase your knowledge on the benefits of sleep
.
🔥Patience 👊🏼 - not seeing results in 7 days? That’s normal, make sure you’re giving yourself a proper timeline to achieve your goals
.
🔥Plan 📲- having a plan to follow to help you stay consistent and break bad habits will play a huge roll on achieving your goals!
.
Lastly I want to give one of my first clients @meghanhenriques a shout out for understanding and applying  the different principles she learned throughout our many sessions together, keep it up Meg you’re doing amazing 👊🏼

Changing your nutritional habits is never an easy process, especially with all the information out there telling us we need to be on the newest fad diet to achieve any results. Fortunately, this isn't true!
.
Implement these 8️⃣ tips into your diet as soon as possible and you will realize the shift isn't so complicated after all!
.
1️⃣Eat whole foods 🥙-processed foods generally have many hidden calories and a low nutritional value. By eating whole foods you will ensure you are hitting your targeted amount of macronutrients and still getting a sufficient amount of micronutrients
.
2️⃣Avoid fad diets 🚫- the sentence "I'm going on the  Keto diet" is used way too frequently. These types of diets do work but need to implemented strategically and are generally not successful when you're thinking long term. A lot of the time people will use these diets and either crash due to too many restrictions or fall too far into a calorie deficit which will impact their performance dramatically
.
3️⃣Stop restricting yourself 🍫- yes we need to avoid sugary processed foods but if we completely deprive ourselves of what we enjoy we will be more likely to crash and fail. Stick to eating healthy foods 80-90% of the time and "comfort foods" 10-20% of the time
.
4️⃣Have a starting point ☝️- having an idea on how many calories/macros you need to be in taking to lose weight will ensure your success! If you're not sure how to figure this out please contact us we'd be happy to help. Also check out "The definitive guide to getting on track" to help you get started. You can find this in our blog section
