Today's Coffee Talk
Tabatas are the name of the game for Episode 9! Jacqui holds nothing back for this full body workout. Get ready to give every ounce of strength and effort as you make your way through today's workout!
Quite often we're asked "how quick should I start seeing results?" It's a natural question right? We live in a world that caters to providing things faster than ever before. We see advertisements all the time about taking a pill to drop the pounds quickly. What BodyRock is all about is giving you the tools to live a healthy lifestyle. There is no magic pill - in order to see results, a few things are required - patience (because it takes time), consistency and a balanced diet. If you're showing up and working out with me and eating nutritious, whole foods, you'll generally start seeing results in about 3 weeks. I say generally because everyone is different. Do not - I repeat - do not get discouraged if you aren't seeing results immediately - remember when I said it takes time? It does, it takes time.
Also - what are you considering as "results"? If you focus only on the number on the scale, it can be a bit misleading. These workouts are going to help in building muscle which, in turn, weighs more than fat. Consider other things - measurements, how your clothes fit and most importantly - how you feel. It takes a strong person to show up daily and workout with me - nobody is making you do that, you're doing it on your own. Be proud of that! Be proud that you are a strong fighting, BodyRocker!
