Greetings to the distinguished 40+, 50+, and 60+ crowd in the Rhode Island and Boston area, those whose aspirations for the New Year transcend the ordinary. As we embark on another chapter of self-improvement, let’s carve a unique path tailored for those individuals who want to change, and need to change, for their health, their family, and themselves. Congrats that you are thinking about changing, for that is the first step. “INTENTION BUILDS ATTENTION!”
Embarking on a fitness journey is commendable, but let’s not overlook the critical components essential for sustained well-being. Achieving lasting fitness isn’t about mere fluctuations; it’s about a perpetual state of vitality and health. Wouldn’t you agree?
A few years back, a study underscored a significant point – those who shed weight typically regain it within seven years. Astonishingly, 93% return to weight loss programs, creating a perpetual cycle. Now, imagine a fitness regimen designed for long-term success, aligning seamlessly with your affluent lifestyle. The burning question emerges: “Coach Kearns, how do I achieve enduring results? What should my fitness program entail?”
Firstly, let’s establish that your program must be effective, efficient, and, above all, safe for you. Tailoring it to your unique needs is paramount. If, for instance, you haven’t lifted weights in decades, but aspire to shed 40 lbs, hurling weights recklessly isn’t the answer. At Burn with Kearns, we advocate for building the basement – laying a strong foundation through a safe and scientific approach, ensuring your fitness journey endures.
Let’s delve into building the basement. The core, often oversimplified, is a complex ensemble of muscles. Picture a line from your right shoulder to left hip and its reverse on the other side. This encompasses the abdominals, lower back, rib cage muscles, gluteal muscles, and scapular muscles. It’s not just about crunches; it’s about a holistic approach. Think of it as investing $5000 in the foundation, before spending $100,000 on the roof. Without a robust core, you can’t throw a punch, swing a golf club, or even take a step confidently.
Introducing our exclusive “Core Killer” – a set of exercises used by 15 UFC fighters, NFL athletes, NBA athletes, college hockey, and even actors like Kevin James. If it works for them, it will work for you! These drills, adaptable to weight plates, medicine balls, dumbbells, or even a patio brick, target not just your abs, but also crucial stabilizers and neutralizers. You won’t feel the burn like traditional crunches, but you’ll experience a holistic engagement vital for everyday life.
Allow me to share a real-life testament to the power of core strength. Twelve weeks before a crucial fight, UFC fighter Kenny Florian faced a potential career-ending back injury. Thanks to a robust core built over 18 months, he not only recovered, but triumphed in the ring. The transverse plane of motion, often overlooked in conventional workouts, played a pivotal role in preventing injuries and ensuring his victory.
As we venture into the new year, I’ll be your guide in a series of articles, unlocking the missing pieces to elevate and perpetuate your fitness journey. Why, you ask? Because it’s my mission to assist individuals like yourself in achieving and sustaining the best shape of your life.
