Cardio Kickboxing on Prodigy

Herve’s 4th Log: Cardio Kickboxing – No Prodigy, Less Energy

Yesterday was a great day in the gym. I taught cardio kickboxing classes all day and had a chance to workout myself. Yesterday was the day I went without the Prodigy supplement to see if I noticed a difference.

A Day without Prodigy

Nothing about my day was different. I woke up and had my usual hard boiled eggs and a protein shake for breakfast. Had a light snack several hours after and a protein bar before I worked out. I worked out around 2:30 in the afternoon. I was a bit tired so I took an energy drink to get started

I had an intense 1 hour workout as usual. 30 minutes of it was done on the power plate with a combination of kicking and punching and the other 30 minutes was done on the floor with more kicking and punching. The intensity I must admit didn’t feel as high as the days I used the Prodigy supplement, but I definitely broke a sweat and went hard.

I just feel like I didn’t have the same energy hitting the bags and doing my workout.

I don’t think it was a bad workout at all it was definitely very effective, but there is definitely a difference with Prodigy. That clears up my mind over matter and just thinking it was a fluke and it being all in my head.

That stuff definitely does work.

Energy Drinks are NOT the Same as Quality Pre Workouts!!

Now that I notice a difference I’ll probably use it more often for my workout days, but I still want to go some days without just to not have to depend on it for a great workout and high intensity.


I started to recommend the supplement to other people in the gym and told them about the great pump you get for your workout.

I’m still not a fan of pre workout supplements but the fact that this one is working I’m actually starting to like it. I can see it making a difference in my strength over time and possibly transforming my body if I wanted a change.

Great product!!!

Holiday Season Fitness


Holiday Season Fitness Life

The holiday season is finally here. Did you know the average American gains weight between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day? Crazy isn’t it? Well don’t worry too much. Here below are some great ways to keep the extra weight off without changing too much of your holiday plans. With the right plan of action, you can make it through the holidays without putting on a single pound and indeed losing some to continue on with your journey to fitness success. Read on and get answers to a few key questions that will help you stay on track with your weight loss plan.


Losing weight during the holidays is extremely challenging. Changing your goals may be in order. Instead of focusing on continued weight loss during this time, focus on not gaining weight instead. Remember – the holidays should be enjoyable and food is a big part of the tradition and pleasures of the season. Sharing special foods with family and friends can make this time more meaningful. Instead of not eating the those special foods and having what you want, have your favorite foods in smaller portions and try to cut back in other ways. Pay more attention to keeping your exercise schedule on track. If you continue to exercise regularly and avoid gaining weight than you will have made it through one of the toughest times to stay dedicated to the fitness life. No one said it would be easy, but I promise that it would be worth it.


Continuing regular exercise and a good diet during the fun and exciting, but stressful holiday season can help you maintain your weight and stay on track. And of course if you plan on traveling, walking, stair-climbing, yoga, functional training, and stretching are very convenient and easy to do. You can do these activities almost anywhere. If you carry a laptop with you or happen to have one around with a webcam whether you travel or not, you can work out at the comfort of your own home, office, or bedroom. I offer a great way to work out through online personal training sessions which are very convenient during the holiday season. For more information please visit

You may need to adjust your schedule for holiday exercising. Don’t find time. Instead make time. Try to be flexible and understand that you can’t always work out according to your normal routine. However, try to sneak in exercise whenever possible; for example, take a walk after a large meal. And be sure to get back to your regular exercise routine as soon as you the season is over or when you return from your travels.


Here’s a list of some metabolism boosting foods that can be used as great snacks and also cooking for the holiday season. Happy holidays, enjoy and stay fit!

Get Fit, Stay Fit - Some Tips for a More Enjoyable Life


Get Fit, Stay Fit - Some Tips for a More Enjoyable Life

So you want to get fit. This desire for change has probably started from something small. Perhaps those favourite jeans have become just a little too snug. Maybe you don't feel that you are able to attract the opposite sex any more. Perhaps your excuses for not going to the beach are simply that you don't want to get your kit off. Possibly you are fed up with just not being healthy.

Well, that's a start. You have the desire to make a change and, as we all know, to make a change will require some action. If you are now motivated to take some action here are some tips to help you attain the goal that you are seeking.

1. To keep motivated you should weigh yourself and take some measurements. This can prompt you to write a goal card of where you want to be within a specified period of time. You may find that taking some pictures of how you look right now, in your underwear, can strengthen your resolve.

2. You are going to have to look at nutrition. Most get fit gurus will say that abs are made in the kitchen and not in the gym. The simple truth is that if you did nothing else, eating a healthy diet is good for you. Combine healthy food with healthy exercise and guess what? You become healthy.

3. Cardio. Build some cardio exercise into your life. Walking, cycling, jogging, swimming or any other enjoyable pastime that can make you a little breathless, but is not too strenuous. I mention cardio before other forms of exercise because it not only helps you to lose weight but it is the best way to exercise the number one muscle, your heart. Just a few times per week for twenty minute is fine to start. You can extend the time and intensity as you feel more able to cope.

4. Go to the gym. A word of warning here. Most of the gyms that I have used seem to have a high incidence of idiots. By that I mean people who would appear to either be new to this or, if not new, to be poorly advised. Don't follow them. Trying to lift weights without warming up can be quite counterproductive. Lifting heavy weights early on impresses no one. Learn to lift safely. Take a structured approach.

After warming up with some light work use some weights within you comfort zone. You should be able to  complete  20 repetitions at a particular weight. Concentrate on different muscle groups on different days. Spend twenty to thirty minutes two or three times per week.

With a little determination and by keeping your eye on your goals, you will quickly learn how to lose weight fast.
