When it comes to your health, fitness and nutrition, do you got game? More specifically, do you have a “game plan”?
A fitness “game plan” can help make your workout experience go from ho hum to rockin’. A fitness “game plan” gives your workouts focus, a sense of purpose, keeps you motivated, & challenges you. What is a fitness “game plan”? It’s knowing exactly what exercises you’re going to do and how many reps/sets of each exercise. A fitness professional can provide you with a fitness game plan that will challenge you and help keep you motivated and accountable. I personally never hit the gym without my fitness “game plan”. I know exactly what I need to do and it helps me challenge myself.
Another important component of your game plan is your nutrition. You can have an incredible workout program, but if you think you can eat whatever you want, as much as you want, whenever you want just because you work out, well, think again. Truth be told, you can’t out exercise a poor diet and without a nutrition game plan, you’re pretty much spinning your wheels in the gym.
When you combine a fitness game plan with a nutrition game plan, not only will you LOOK great, you will FEEL great.
Your Fitness Game Plan
If you are working out on a regular basis, how often do you switch up your workouts? A lot of people who are in my gym have been doing the same exercise routine for YEARS. They still look the same; their bodies haven’t changed at all. Not only that, I’ve yet to see them sweat during their workouts.
If you continue doing the same workout for months or years, all you are doing is maintaining. Your body is not being challenged and therefore you won’t get the results you’re looking for. I don’t know about you, but if I went to the gym and kept doing the same workout, I’d get bored.
If you have a game plan you’ve been following for an extended period of time, perhaps you should consider changing things up. You’ll feel challenged, more motivated and, you’ll get better results.
Resources I recommend to get your “Game On”
If you need help switching up your workouts to get results, stay motivated and challenged, most fitness professionals can work with you in person or on line.
The clients I work with on line and in person are constantly challenged as I keep changing up their workouts preventing the body from plateau, while continuously improving their strength, endurance, flexibility and over all fitness.

As a matter of fact, I have used several programs out there not only as a way of switching up my program, but to learn from as well. These are programs by people I know, look up to, and trust.
Here is a list of some of the programs I trust and recommend:
Burn the Fat by Tom Venuto
Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle is the #1 best selling diet and fitness ebook in the history of the Internet. In fact, it’s one of the best selling e-books on ANY subject in the history of the Internet -… And there’s a reason why…
Tom Venuto, a respected fat loss expert, natural bodybuilder, and personal trainer, has not just pumped out yet another “diet program” into an already over-saturated market. Tom’s Burn the Fat can be more accurately described as a “Fat Loss Bible.” It is quite simply one of the most complete, detailed, and precise guides to fat loss you will ever read. What makes it so much different than other weight loss publications on the market?
Well first of all, it’s not a “weight loss” program, it’s a “fat” loss program. This may seem like semantics or wordplay at first, but once you’ve read just the first three chapters, there will be no doubt in your mind that pursuing “weight loss” is not only the wrong goal, it may be the reason that you’ve failed to reach and maintain your ideal body weight. Burn The Fat shows you exactly why it’s fat you must lose, not “weight” (which includes muscle, water and other lean tissue) and then goes on to show you exactly how to do it.

Turbulence Training by Craig Ballantyne
Turbulence Training is a great fast fat loss program for men and women who don’t have a lot of time for exercise using intense workouts you do three times a week.
Craig is well known and well respected fitness professional who’se name regularly appears in publications such as Men’s Health and Men’s Fitness, and even in Oxygen and Shape magazines.
If you only have 45 minutes to workout, a couple of times per week, and you have access to only a bench, dumbbells, and an exercise ball, then you’ll like what Craig has for you here.
“What is Turbulence Training?” Well according to Craig, its the combination of resistance training and interval training used to boost your metabolism so that your body burns calories and fat between workouts. He says, “Cardio doesn’t boost your metabolism after exercise. Only strength training and interval training do that – while you work, sleep, and eat – your body will be shedding fat.”

Vince Del Monte Six Pack Quest
Vince DelMonte was once known as “Skinny Vinny”, but “Skinny Vinny” no more, if you’re a guy struggling to gain muscle, Vince DelMonte’s program is just what you’re looking for.
Another challenge Vince had was not only was he skinny, but he was a skinny fat person. Like most of us, Vince wanted to shed body fat while putting on muscle, but for him, it was much more of a challenge than for the average person who is overweight, is looking to shed body fat and put on muscle.
Here is Vince’s brief story in his own words
“Before, when I was taking massive amounts of supplements and blindly following what the magazines told me to do, I was an embarrassingly scrawny 149 pound twerp.
After I discovered the truth I shot up to an impressive 190 pounds of rock-solid, ripped muscle mass in under 6 months…and became a national champion fitness model!
Now I’m a solid 210 lbs and 10% body fat… and I’m going to show you how to build 10, 20, 30 and even 50 lbs of rock hard muscle (without getting fat in the process)! “
Although Vince’s pictures speak for themselves, when I FINALLY met him in person, it is hard to believe that he was once a scrawny 149 pounds. When it comes to a program for those struggling to go from scrawny to brawny, Vince is the real deal and his program is also great for those looking to shed unwanted body fat and reveal sculpted abs.

Nutrition, Nutrition, Nutrition!!!
It’s a no brainer that we all know to stay away from junk food, fast food, sweets and bread and to eat more fruits, vegetables and lean meats.
Remember when I told you that part of putting together a your fitness game plan in the gym is to have your workouts already planned out. You should walk into your gym knowing exactly what exercises you’re going to do that day, how many sets and how many reps of each exercise you’re going to do.
This same concept holds true when it comes to your diet. When you prepare your grocery list, you should already know what foods you will be eating for the week. I know for some this can seem overwhelming, but it really isn’t as monumental as you think it is.
The trick is to precook your foods for the week. I do this every Sunday and have been doing this for years. Once I have all my beef, chicken, fish, etc., pre-cooked, my sweet potatoes pre-baked, my veggies cut up, etc., putting together healthy, nutritious meals all week long is quick, easy and simple.
Aside from having a great game plan to follow in the gym, many people fumble the ball when it comes to what to eat, when to eat, and how to put a great meal/snack together in minutes.
Just like your workouts, you can fall into a rut with your diet. Let’s face it, we humans are creatures of habit. When you eat the same things day in, day out, eat the same calories day in, day out, your progress comes to a stand still.
I’ll admit, I’m guilty of this from time to time and have found myself using the same seasonings, using the same combo of vegetables, same ingredients, etc. when preparing my meals.
Dave Ruel’s Anabolic Cooking not only tells you what to eat, when to eat, and how to put together a great meal/snack together in minutes, he shows you how to put together food combinations and ingredients that boost your metabolism that helps put your nutrition and weight loss into high gear.
I love this cookbook and every single one of the recipes that I’ve made from Anabolic Cooking not only taste incredibly delicious, but are so quick and easy to make.

Implementing your game plan
Now you know what a fitness game plan is and what you have to do to put your game plan together and the resources to help you do it, it’s time to implement your plan and get your “game on”.
If you stick to a plan of action for 12 weeks, not only will you get great results, it will become a habit. This is something I have been doing for years and is so automatic, I don’t have to think about it.
