exercise add

Do you jump from running one day to and aerobic class the follow day to spinning the next?

Do you follow a diet for a few days then jump to another one because you’re impatient? It’s too hard? Or you’re bored?

Do you follow random workouts and eat random meals?

How do you expect to measure progress if you never stick with anything long enough? How can you set realistic goals? How will you ever know if you have reached your goals?

You will not see changes in fat loss, strength, lean muscle or even metabolism if you don’t follow a structured exercise and nutrition plan consistently for a specific amount of time.

I have been in the fitness and nutrition field for over the last 15 years and I have seen 3 main forms of exercise and nutrition ADD:

1) Changing your workout too much ADD

I see this one quite often. If someone is doing a Zumba class on Monday, then a Cycling class on Tuesday, and then a bootcamp workout on Wednesday, then Pilates on Thursday. There is NO consistency there. There is no structure. Though I truly believe all exercise and activity are beneficial if it’s done safely and it’s not over done…yet one will NOT see great results with the weekly plan above. Why? Because it’s too random and not balanced. Unbalanced and random exercise will give you unbalanced and random results. It will be very hard to see measurable changes in a plan like this.

2) Changing your gym/personal trainer/bootcamp too much ADD
You just started with a new trainer with lots success stories and things are going well but your BFF just told you about a hot new bootcamp in town. So you jump ship and quit working with the trainer and join the bootcamp. Two weeks into the bootcamp you and your friend get impatient and super sore and tired give up and decide to do this hot new yoga class everyone is talking about instead. So you decide that this might be the workout for you so you ditch the bootcamp for yoga. Do you see the problem? You never give anything time to WORK! I have no problem with someone trying to find a program that is the best fit for them. However, jumping around from the latest fitness craze to the next great workout fad, to the new sexy aerobic dance class…. will get you know where and is a recipe for disaster if you are looking for great results.

3) Changing your diet ADD
You have tried Weight Watchers for a month, and then Nutrisystem for two weeks, then went Paleo for another week. Yet none of them worked for you! Right? Why? Well either you’re using a flawed diet program or you are just NOT giving it time to work. What you really need is a balanced nutrition plan that supports your specific goals and not a random fad diet plan you saw on tv or online.

The best way around workout and nutrition ADD is having a structured and balanced exercise and nutrition program customized to your specific body and goals. A specific and customized plan that you follow consistently is guaranteed to give you the best possible results in the least amount of time.

right advice

If you post a question on “How Do I Lose Weight And Get In Shape?” on Facebook or any social media outlet. You will get advice from about 30+ unqualified people. People will try to sell you on weight loss shakes, energy drinks, body wraps, weight loss challenges, and DVD programs. Yet do these people have your best interest in mind? Or do they see dollar signs as soon as you post your question?

You need to ask yourself:


1) Are these people fit and healthy themselves?

2) Do these people have any qualifications and social proof (other than a recycled overused picture of someone they never met)

3) Is this person really interested in helping or is their main objective to sell you their inferior product or service at a superior price?

Since, I entered the Fitness and Nutrition field over 15 years ago I have dedicated myself to talk the talk and walk the walk.

Why you should trust myself and my services:

1) I eat and exercise the same way I preach others should. I don’t say you should eat healthy, frequent and balanced meals from the most natural sources and ingredients possible…and then and turn around and eat junk food and fast food every day (or ever). I recommend cooking, preparing, planning and eating most of your meals at home and I also do it myself day in and day out. I dont push or sell overpriced low quality supplements that you don’t need. (I do however recommend a quality whole food vitamin and quality protein powder that could conveniently fill in the gaps of your nutrition if your diet plan is lacking protein and vitamins- However they are NOT needed to be successful). I don’t recommend soda/pop, alcohol, drugs, pre/post workout supplements, soy protein, energy drinks, and also I abstain from them all myself. Though you might catch me once or twice a month having whatever I want when I eat out at a restaurant or event I still almost always do my best to make a good choice. :-)

2) I have plenty of success stories and social proof from my fitness and nutrition programs. Go to my webpage
www.davidmodderman.com and you will see dozens of real people and clients with success stories, before and after pictures, and video testimonials of real people sharing their success with my programs and also success stories from some of the same national programs I have run.

3) The day I entered this field my main goal was to help people get results and reach their goals with the most effective and efficient exercise and nutrition information available, and do be a beacon of understandable truth. To never let people take the easy road of quick fixes, and gimmicks that would be a waste of time and money. If something doesn’t work and I feel its a scam or not effective I will tell you it is and also why.

To The Day I Die I Will Continue To Preach Real Food and Real Exercise. I will have my clients and followers best interest in mind and NOT just how they can fill my wallet.
