The Science of Fitness Overview

In 2009, I became a first time member at my local gym. I didn’t really know what I was doing, and it was overwhelming yet empowering all the same to be surrounded by rows and rows of machines and weights. But again, I didn’t really know what I was doing, which at this point just seems characteristic of me. I could buy the most sophisticated computers, advanced cell phones, luxurious automobiles, and all the cool gadgets in the world- the one thing you can always count on me doing is flat out ignoring to read the instructions or owner’s manual- and you will never, ever catch me asking for help. I will bitch, moan, and cry all day long, but no thank you, I would never reach back into the trash to pull out the directions. At full disclosure, I always do figure everything out on my own, some things quicker than others (this was not one of those things). 

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably done the same thing. You’ve probably walked into a gym, and then laughed and walked right back out. You’ve probably meal prepped for one week and convinced yourself the next that you were too busy because you had to finish the last season of your favorite show on Netflix. Maybe you decided you couldn't meal prep because washing the dishes was simply too exhausting and terribly draining (my exact logic). 

Growing up, my mom fed us mostly organic foods. While there were very few studies at the time around the whole organic phenomenon, my mom shelled out more for groceries, enticed by even the sheer hope we would turn out healthier and, in her mind, without any mutations. With that said, I have eaten relatively healthy my entire life, with intermittent stints of midnight Taco Bell runs and going vegan for some years. 

Fast forward to college- I played around with the stair master for a bit in a sorrowful attempt to counterbalance my new diet of alcohol mixed with alcohol. I gave that a pretty good run, but I understood it wasn’t giving me the results I wanted. One, because my diet was strictly Tito’s vodka, and two, because using one cardio machine is not standalone workout. 

Adulthood has graced me with a more urgent sense of efficiency. How can I maximize my energy and time to yield the most benefit? I’ve tried probably everything in terms of exercise and nutrition. I’m here to simplify things for you, to give you the best ways to perform at your maximum efficiency and to achieve your health related goals without all the years of confusion I suffered. At a certain point, I decided to educate myself properly, and gain the knowledge necessary to become a certified personal trainer. I have the facts, and went through all the formal training so that you don't have to. 

When I decided to take my fitness and diet regimen more seriously, I came across so many different pieces of contradicting information in articles and plastered on social media. This book clears the confusion of all that contradicting information, and covers topics such as bulking and cutting correctly and when to do it, creating an effective and realistic workout plan, flexible dieting / IIFYM / intermittent fasting explained, common myths, and work out, diet, and supplement recommendations. 

This makes the perfect guide for anyone who is new to working out and is designed to be a jumpstart for an absolute beginner. 

Here’s a guide to everything I wish I had known in 2009.
