Our 30-Day Kick Start Transformation Starts September 3, 2013

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

Jason Smith Fitness has chosen four weight loss subjects that will have 30 days to lose as much weight as possible via exercise and following a strict diet plan. The four individuals will be training with Jason Smith three days per week using the HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) training protocol to maximize weight loss. They will be handing in weekly food journals every Friday for Jason’s review. At that time, each lady will get on the scale to see how their hard work is paying off.

The girls received their weight loss goals for the 30-Day program. They are as follows:

Zamantha Tavazon – 25 lbs
Kasey English – 22 lbs
Mari Ramos – 18 lbs
Patty LePore – 15 lbs

Easy Tips to Ditch Up To 8 Pounds in a Month

Saturday, March 12th, 2011

Did you know it takes a 3500 calorie deficit to lose one pound of fat? Cutting out 500 calories a day from your regular eating plan should create a loss of one pound on the scale in one week; 4 pounds a month. If you also add a 250-500 calorie burning workout session to your daily routine, in addition to consuming 500 less calories per day, it should equate to a weekly loss of approximately 2 pounds or up to 8 pounds per month.

A few simple ways to cut 500 calories a day from your regular eating plan include cutting out sodas (2-3 per day), counting out your food item according to the serving size instead of pouring them into a bowl or eating straight from the bag and skipping the whip and opting for skim milk in those fancy coffee drinks.

A few simple ways to burn an extra 250-500 calories per day include running/walking 1-2 miles in roughly 15 – 30 minutes, jumping rope for 30-45 minutes, doing yardwork/housework for 90 minutes and our personal favorite, participating in a 30 minute Fast, Intense, Interval, Training team session at FIIT Training Center.

Thank YOU for the inspiration! FIIT is finally here!

I want to thank all of my clients that have shared their past group fitness training and bootcamp experiences with me. It was your stories that inspired me to create a program that would not only be intense, but also safe, fun and extremely effective. I’ve spent the last two years testing and tweaking new ideas for what I wanted to be the “BEST” group training program ever! Today I’m proud to say…FIIT is finally here! So far…….so great!

Are you drinking enough water for Arizona’s hot climate?

Thursday, May 10th, 2007

Your body is made up of mostly water (approx. 60-70 percent). It uses water in every cell and organ function; this makes it one of the most essential nutrients. It is important to keep hydrated so that your body can function at its peak. The average adult should consume around 50 ounces of water per 100 pounds of body weight. However, when you sweat from activities such as exercise or being outdoors in hot climates like Phoenix, Arizona…your body requires more water.

Here are a few roles in which water plays a part in:

  • digestion and absorption of food
  • regulation of body temperature and blood circulation
  • regulation of metabolism
  • nutrient and oxygen transprotation throughout the body
  • weight loss (drinking water metabolizes stored fats and helps maintain lean muscle)
