January 2020

Race & Healthy Weight

So much is said about race weight, but what about the inverse to the extreme. Over 22years of Personal Training I can think of 3 racers that started to take brining their race weight down too far. But over those years I have seen more than 10x's that slide in their weight and more importantly, their health. Yes, you can gain weight in the off season or in a year where you aren't racing with aggressive goals. But when your health slides with illness, injury & mental state, when is enough, enough? Who is going to say something, your training partner, your coach, your spouse, your kids, your co-workers.....Or shouldn't you have an amount of weight gain allowed, number of illnesses in a whole year, injuries in a whole year, how many workouts you miss for any reason and/or when your mental status is below a 7 of 10?

TFP Coaches can help with either extreme, or any level of goal. When you are ready, we can help you look the past, where you are now, the future goals and help you layout the plan to take the steps toward it. We could do this with Personal Training sessions and/or Training Plan services.

Over the years, please put together a team and plan to keep you from falling out of range. This will likely change over the years so keep committed to keeping this organized.

Metabolic Testing

This testing is something I oversaw for 12yrs at TFP but are now choosing to contract it out so we can focus on training but it will continue to be a foundation of TFP coaching both Endurance Athletes & common fitness people looking to feel well and push off disease. A bonus, they offer a full body Dexascan to tell you your fat, muscle & bone levels in all areas of your body.

How it helps us: -we know HR zones are right -we know cal/min in each zone, loss over hours -we know what fuel you are losing and know need to maintain energy -we know what is the potential fat burning %, if below, the urgency to make change for to reduce fatigue, injury & bonking -we know the correlation to future health if low fat burning is the result

Here are the options we have set up for TFPers:

2 Months of Basic Training Plan + 2 Tests = $560 2 Months of Basic Nutrition Coaching + 2 Tests = $400 2 Personal Training Hour Sessions + 2 Tests = $270 Monthly Metabolic Clinic + 2 Tests = $220

Next Clinic is Dec 16th 5pm.

I will help get the test set up. Email me when is good for you. Matt@thefitnesspursuit.com
