Powering Through Plateau

Meet Wello trainer Herve Doliska!

This week, Herve writes about working with Kathy, Wello’s weight loss blogger. Kathy reached a plateau in her fitness progress, and Herve explains his advice for Kathy and anyone else overcoming a plateau!

Working with Kathy has made Wello a very special and fun experience for me. She is on the way to reaching her goals and fitness success! Kathy would like to lose 40 lbs and has worked very hard to lose the 15 lbs she’s lost so far. We’ve been training 3 days a week and keeping up with  healthy eating and good nutrition.

 

When Kathy and I first started working together she lost 8 pounds in 2 weeks. This was because her body was doing something completely different and doing things she wasn’t used to. Now that her body is getting used to a healthier lifestyle and working out more often, the weight loss has slowed down a bit to about 1-2 pounds a week. I’d like to get Kathy back to losing more weight at a decent rate and in order to do that some things must change.

 

The intensity of the workouts will increase. The amount of cardio will also increase, we’ll work out 4 days a week, Kathy will work out one day on her own, and we’ll make the necessary changes in her  diet. I’m looking forward to these changes to help Kathy get past her plateau and get to her 40 pound goal as quickly and healthy as possible.

 

Well said, Herve! We’re excited to see how Kathy’s journey progresses.

Have a great week and Be Wello!

Kathy Gets Fit: Week 10 – People Are Starting To Notice!

Apparently, 15 pounds is when neighbors and coworkers begin to notice someweight loss. A few people have asked me recently if I’ve lost weight and I am more than happy to reply “YES” :)

I’m down one pound again this week (4th week in a row), for a total of 15. This is a much slower pace than I’d thought it would be, but I am definitely liking the results. We were at a water park this week, and I have to admit, it’s slightly less stressful to walk around in a swimsuit now. I was able to focus more on having fun and enjoying the water slides with the kids. It was also an unexpected workout lugging heavy rafts up multiple flights of stairs!

Week10

Besides the water park, I got 3 hours of heavy yard work in, three one-on-one sessions with Herve, and Shannan’s Power Yoga class again. I am becoming a yoga fan! It’s perfect timing because as part of my new diet, I’m supposed to focus on cardio during the high-carb days of  Phase 1 (Mon/Tues), strength training during the high-protein days of Phase 2 (Wed/Thurs) and a relaxing activity like yoga during the high healthy fat days of Phase 3 (Fri/Sat/Sun). One of the many benefits of working with a personal trainer is that when I mentioned this to Herve, he was able to start aligning my one-on-one sessions to match the plan.

It feels like this new diet plan dominated my entire week. Hours were spent on food shopping, planning meals, food prep and cooking. Hopefully, it will be easier going forward. With all that effort going into it, I have stuck with it, and have had absolutely no splurges since I started. I am determined.

Current stats: 15 down, 25 to go

Success Story

  I'm a mother of a toddler while working as a health care proffesional.   And would of never thought a workout plan with my busy schedule could yield such quick results. With the guidance, non stop motivation,  and coaching, Herve helped me already lose a total of 15 lbs in two months!  Pushing myself to reach my fitness goals in the past have been a true challenge. Nowadays, I look myself in the mirror and say "look how far i've become ", " who can stop me now!?! "   Thank you, Herve!

Healthy Habits:

Explaining to your kids the benefits of health is much easier than telling them they have type 2 diabetes! Healthy habits are crucial! Set a good example for your children now before it's too late. I'm sure we all know the type of foods that our younger generation loves to eat aren't the healthiest, but you can certainly moderate the amount that they intake. Exercise infront of your children. It's very important to be a role model and as we know the younger they are the more they like to copy things. If you can get them to commit to a healthy lifestyle by setting and living one then you will make a tremendous difference in both your life and theirs as well.
