Training

You want results? Then eat and train like it

All too often people train year in and year out without ever getting one single step closer to their goals.

Way too often you see people dieting like crazy, losing the weight, only to gain it and often more back again in a short time.

People are normally wondering about these following questions:

So why is it not working? Is it my genes? Is it that I just don’t do it right? Or is it that I shouldn’t expect results?

If I can achieve one thing, right now, as I have you reading this, I want to convince you that YES you should expect results! I am not a magician; these are not overnight results – but steady, continuous, awesome results. Step-by-step, they will transform you into who you really are. That dream of yours… That dream IS who you really ARE!

If you wanna change: CHANGE

Your body will ONLY change when it has to, when it is pressed to, when the circumstances urge it to.

If you just go to the gym, and do your well known routine, go to the same classes week after week (like most of the girls), well then the body is kind of used to that, and it gets no what so ever indication that it needs to improve in order to keep up. Therefore there are absolutely no changes happening.

In order to improve you need to continuously make new challenges for your body to overcome; then it will wake up and understand, wow I got to make some improvements here in order to endure that program.

How to do that?

  • Change your weight routine, incorporate new stuff, e.g. TRX, BOSO, functional training, with power bags and so on.
  • Use heavier weights!
  • Make zero breaks between sets and make active breaks instead (e.g. aerobic breaks with squat- jumps, or plank -squat -jumps, skipping between sets is perfect).
  • And for the girls: stop doing ONLY aerobic programs- it is time to do some weights too, and use the weights, you can lift more than 1 kg, come on, you do that every day in the supermarket anyway, or when you carry your kids.

Weight training can be fun, if you use different exercises every time.

  • Set a goal
  • Think of yourself as an athlete.
  • Improve your diet – it is not how much you eat – it is WHAT you eat.
  • A fit and healthy body is 80 % made in the kitchen. One hour in the gym is important, but it is what you eat and drink in the 23 hours after that really counts.

Through my experiences with hundreds of clients as a sports nutritionist/personal trainer/health coach and through my ongoing studies, as well as through my own personal transformation, I discovered that to be fit and truly healthy you need four vital elements: FITFOOD + INSPIRATION + TRAINING + u; a unique u- one that is designed especially and ONLY for you. With the correct combination of each of these four you are right on to your goal.

We each have our own unique goal(s), our own specific history of health issues, and our own unique needs. No food plan should ever be the same for any two individuals; no training should ever be the same for any two persons.

We are ALL one of a kind and each of us deserves to be treated as the unique individual that we are.

With each small success you feel everyday you will find yourself getting closer and closer to your goal.  Like a wild fire, it begins to spreads all over your life and without understanding it you find yourself …happy. YES – more and more happy.

Ultimately, isn’t this what we all searching for?

  • The heat is on 🔥
Let’s stop for a second complaining about the heat and look at the awesome benefits of it instead. 
I have before been speaking about the performance enhancing effects of heat: the exposure to heat increases the amount of heat shock proteins (HSPs). These are specialised proteins, which are protective and regenerative in nature. They deliver the following effects:
1. They prevent oxidative stress in cells 
2. They enhances recovery 
3. They preserve more amino acids in your system used for protein synthesis 
HSPs promote muscle adaptation, an essential part of training progression. If a muscle group is unable to adapt to the stressors being placed upon it, it won’t grow. HSPs ensure, especially during resistance training, the correct assembly of amino acids into appropriate protein enhancing hypertrophy (growing the glutes 🍑😉). HSPs and lifting: 
The eccentric, the negative or lowering portion of a lift, the the most promising range for muscle growth (and yasss ladies you do want to grow your glutes, all of you 💃🍑) so let’s do those real slow eccentric moves. Most people just drop the bar without actively resisting the weight and just don’t get the best part done ✅. Intense eccentric exercise can boost HSPs by over a 1000 percent, now imagine this in a combo with the heat, now that’s a perfect combination for muscle growth. Heat makes your body function better, both aerobically and anaerobically, as well as the bonus of removal of toxins from all your amazing sweat 💦 get inspired and take incredible beneficial steps straight towards your best version www.sofiefitu.com #glutegains #gains #leanmuscle #nutritionist #nutrition #fatloss #fatlosstips #trending #trainhard #fitspo #fitfam #fit #fitness #girlswholifts #personaltrainer #glutes #glutepump #healthylifestyle #happinnes
  • Reeves Deadlift: the best exercise for a V-Taper‼️
This lift was developed by Steve Reeves, one of the most famous bodybuilders of all times.
Reeves was known for having an incredible V-Taper and massive upper back. This exercise was a significant part of his training. 
The Reeves deadlift involves an inordinately wide grip that’s much wider than the snatch grip. It crushes the upper back and lats. 
This lift is for tall lifters with a large wingspan in general. 
My upper back used to be a weak spot, I work so much on it that it is becoming my strongest...incredible what we are capable at with persistence, patience and never ending ongoing training that always pushes us forward out over our limits in a never ending improvement plan. Leveling up, all the way up where you belong.

  • Calories out > Calories In= Weight loss
- yes, but hold on‼️ Is weight loss really all you want? It’s what you think you want! Is it the number at the bathroom scale, you dream of? Or is it an incredible physique? Is it a fitness look? Is it tons of energy? Light at your feet? Is it with firm muscles and a butt up there where it belongs? 
What most people really dream of is an incredible physique. And that is build with the correct building blocks, with hard training for you. And remember: You can't out train a bad diet. If your nutrition doesn't support your goal and your training, you can kiss your dream body goodbye. You can't run off junk. Your body is NOT a bank account. The equation is NOT energy in energy out. It's much more complex than that. If you want a picture that is more correct we could consider using: chemical lab. Meaning whatever you eat effects your chemical conditioning, effects your hormones, effects your immune system, effects your cellular reproduction and so on. A great way to think of it, is food as your building blocks, your healing remedies, your repair optimiser, your optimal brain function driver and your mood fixer etc. Your food literally rebuild every single cell in your body with in a year (approximately 95 % of your cells are in fact replaced with in a year) it's up to you to feed that process in an optimal manner. What is optimal for you? It depends on all your unique factors, data measurements, current health state, training load, goal etc don't just do it: do it right.

  • Build lean firm muscles‼️
It’s absolutely the best way to boost your metabolism and lower your body fat.
It’s the best you can do for your wellness and health. It’s such a feel good. Such an endorphin booster. Strong and confident. 
Women are often torn between what they are expected to look like: the female look of a 22 year old, which is unsustainable, because we do get older and lose 10% of our natural muscle mass per year. Just to keep your muscle mass you gotta use them. Nobody enjoys the “empty bag” kinda look. What is “feminine” or “masculine”? Women are often really scared to gain too much muscle, because it is considered “masculine”. I am warned daily not to over do it and get too “masculine” that’s why I make small videos like this to show you that, well at least I feel very feminine indeed. Peak performance and female muscles, feels really awesome, and I truly believe that should be the highest indicator of our goals, just how great it makes you feel. At a point I even suffered under this “don’t get too masculine” syndrome, until I decided to really add weight, live in a constant caloric surplus and gain mass. I have added kilos and muscle and I have never felt better and this is just the beginning. For the first time in the last 8 years where I was losing body fat since I was overweight (103 kg) I am allowing myself to thrive and build muscle mass.
When I design muscle gain programs for training and feeding you the like, by your specific calculated nutritional meal plan, you won’t gain body fat, you will add the right amount of muscle that will burn your body fat for you, always according to your goal of course.

  • Let’s thrive‼️ Let’s aim for peak performance.
Let’s aim for optimal health. 
Let’s aim for our best and happiest version. A version where you are full of energy. 
I don’t believe in feeling deprived in any way, I don’t believe in feeding on a salad leaf, dead tired on your sofa, not wanting to move, because you are way too low on calories. What’s the fun in that? What good does a ripped body do you if you aren’t alive and kicking?
I believe in feeding your body nutrients for thriving. A nutritional meal specifically designed for your personal needs and training program aiming for your growth. Hard training doesn’t make much sense without nutrient support, because what exactly are you going to grow back stronger on? 
What exactly did you feed your body to recover on?
How did you support your immune system to fight inflammation and keep your body at its peak performance?

  • Get those results‼️
What is the reason you are doing this? To get results, right?
Most people go to the gym for years and nothing really happens. So many people tell me that they have been trying to lose weight for months and they are stuck...
Why?
Training should give you measurable results. 
Dieting should make you lose weight. 
If your training program doesn’t build you the muscle you want: change it!
If your diet doesn’t work: dump it!
Results should be seen and felt immediately. Small gradual improvements daily, weekly and  monthly. You should be constantly improving, losing body fat, elevating muscle mass, getting stronger, faster whatever your goal is, you should be moving towards it.
That’s what I do: I give results. 
The best and fastest results possible to your physique, to your performance, to your health - in short to your best version. 
That’s my expertise. I cut through all the bullshit and I kick ass to get you there. If you want the results, I calculate specifically how make that happen for you. I can design the perfect meal plan for you, the best possible training program to get you the fastest possible to your goal. But you have to be willing to execute. It’s action upon action, upon action. It has a lot to do with mindset. I will train your most important muscle: your mind. It’s an important part of your training. The ability to show up for training every day and do what no one else is willing to do, that comes from a very well trained mind. To drive to the top and stay there, year after year: that’s mindset.
