  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - 80/20 Rule

    80/20 Rule

    Our goal here at Main Street Fitness isto teach you to live and eat in a way that is sustainable long-term. No yo-yo diets or quick fixes here! As you know, we run nutrition based challenges throughout the year that really require you to step up your nutritional compliance, but for the most part, we encourage you to follow the 80/20 rule. 80% of the time you’re eating on plan foods – protein, vegetables, fruits, good fats, and some good fibrous carbs. The other 20% you get to do as you please. Now, don’t gorge yourself. A 20% meal doesn’t mean eating an entire pizza. It does mean enjoying the foods you love but with more consciousness.

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - Abs classes will never get you abs

    Abs classes will never get you abs

    I am asked all of the time how people can get better, flatter, and more visible abs. It’s the #1 area people want to improve. Go into any gym and you’ll see thousands of crunches, situps, ab machine whatevers, and so on. Do those people have visible abs? Usually not. Abs classes are prevalent in almost any commercial gym, and members flock in search of the six pack that will never be. You see, getting abs comes from OVERALL reduction in body fat. You already have abs - you just need to lose the fat on top of them to see them! While fun, abs classes are a matter how much it burns. So then how do you get great abs? Here are the secrets: 1) Nutrition first

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - A 4 step process for REAL change

    A 4 step process for REAL change

    Having worked in the fitness industry for 10years, I’ve met a lot of people who say they want to change. They’re unhappy with their bodies, their performance, their feelings of being out of control, or maybe they’re even in physical pain. But as you might guess, change is HARD. Without getting too scientific, all 3 major areas of your brain were designed to prevent change, discomfort, and walking into the unknown. Your protective human brain is doing its job, but you’re not getting what you want because of the stories it’s telling you and your subconscious acceptance of them. Which of these stories/excuses resonates with you?:
    “I don’t have ....

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - Gary's Testimony

    Gary's Testimony

    Before starting a program with a personal trainer, I worked on my fitness doing walking, and used some weight machines. During my busy career, my primary issue that held me back was time, which caused me to be inconsistent.I struggled making fitness a priority. In the back of my mind I knew I needed to do better on my fitness.I watched my dad struggle with severe shoulder arthritis, weakness, and these issues caused a lot of pain to him.I didn’t want to go through that. Knowing what happened to my dad helped me make a decision to get serious about my fitness.Interestingly enough, my shoulder started to have similar symptoms that my father struggled with, and that’s ....

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - Life is a snowball

    Life is a snowball

    The choices you make throughout the day every day ultimately create a snowball effect in your life. The little things that may seem insignificant in the moment eventually add up to a massively successful life or a life of disappointment. Today I want to make you aware of those tiny yet indescribably important choices...because they are CHOICES. If you choose to skip a workout for a day, is it a big deal? No – of course not! But what happens when you make that choice repeatedly? Maybe it starts over the course of a week, then before you know it, it’s been a month, a quarter, a year... And on top of that, your eating habits have congruently fallen by ....

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - How getting fit expands your mind

    How getting fit expands your mind

    When you start a program to get healthy and fit, develop better habits, get out of pain, or whatever the case may be, one thing you probably don’t expect is how your mind transforms. Health and fitness can be very elusive, multi-failure, hard to reach topics for the majority of people. You may have even thought at one point that it’s just not possible for YOU to achieve your goals, especially when under the influence of prior failures. My first piece of advice is just take the first step. Then the next step and then the next. If you keep taking a step forward, you eventually arrive at your destination. It’s simple when you look at it like that, isn’t it? ....

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - Which diet is the best to follow?

    Which diet is the best to follow?

    Depending on how well we know each other, you may or may not already know my answer to this question. It’s one I get ALL the time. It’s also one of the most Googled questions around health and fitness. Everyone wants that magic answer that’s easy to follow and gets the results. But the truth is, there’s no “best diet.” There’s only the best diet for YOU, and I strongly believe that’s the one that you can stick to forever. Basic rules that are good to follow include:
    Eat foods your great grandmother would recognize (from the earth and unprocessed)
    Avoid products that are unfamiliar, unpronounceable, and more than 5-7 ....

    Knowledge ISN’T power!

    Despite the popularity of the phrase “knowledge is power,” it couldn’t be further from the truth. Think about it. There’s more information available to us today than EVER before. There are aisles of diet and cook books in book stores and far more than that on Amazon, there are millions of free workout videos available online, and you can Google literally anything. So why is it that despite all of this readily available information, people are becoming larger, less mobile, in more pain, and overall unhealthier? Well, I wish it was simple as just knowing. But it comes down to action and application.

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - Why you're stuck

    Why you're stuck

    Are you stuck, and if so, why? What’s the thing in life that propels us forward to achieve new goals, whether they are in weight loss, athletic pursuits, career, or relationship-related? It’s our belief that accomplishing these things is possible, and that comes down to confidence
    . Confidence propels us forward, while lack of confidence holds us back . Confidence (or lack of) is generated by past experiences. If we’ve been successful in the weight loss realm in the past, we will believe it’s possible to attain again. But if you’ve never successfully kept weight off, your lack of confidence can tell you that there’s no ....

    Make SMART Goals?

    What is a goal? Well, let’s actually start with what is NOT a goal… • “I want to lose weight.” • “I want to feel better.” • “I want to tone up.” What’s wrong with these, you ask? They’re not specific to start with. They’re just kind of an idea. If you want to set goals that you can achieve, set SMART goals: S-specific
    – “I want to lose 10lbs, 5% body fat, and fit back into my old size 6 jeans.” M-measurable
    – there should be no doubt whether or not you reached your goals. You could measure by weight you want to lift, clothing size, inches, etc. ....
