Burn The Fat Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Do you have to join a gym or buy any special equipment?

Q: Does your program require you to go to a gym? Do I have to purchase any special equipment if I want to train at home? Are the exercises easy enough for people over 50 to do if they haven't been doing much strength training?  

A: No, you don't have to join a gym if you don't want to. In fact, many people start working out in their own homes with little or no equipment, and they often join a gym later or create their own little "home gym." 

The Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle program has 4 important components and two of them are exercise: 

1. Cardio training 

2. Strength training 

3. Mental training 

4. Balanced nutrition from natural food  

The cardio training component could be as simple as walking and that doesn't require any equipment at all, unless you prefer to use a treadmill. In fact, walking is often the best form of aerobic exercise if you're a beginner, if you have a lot of weight to lose, or if you're older. As you become more fit, you can move up to more intense forms of cardio that allow you to burn more calories in less time. 

Stairclimbers, elliptical machines, treadmills, rowers, bicycles and certain classes or video programs are all great for fat loss and any one of these of these can be incorporated into this program. One of the great features of Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle is the flexibility it allows in your exercise choices instead of locking you into one mode of training or insisting that one method is the best. What's most important is that you choose an aerobic activity that you enjoy and that you're willing to make a regular part of your lifestyle. 

The Burn The Fat program also recommends a strength training component and you do need to learn how to do some strength training exercises if you aren't already. This could be as simple as some basic dumbbell exercises in your own home. Some people even start with no equipment, just bodyweight exercises such as push ups, pull ups, dips, bodyweight squats, bodyweight lunges and abdominal work.  

Most equipment advertised on TV infomercials is complete garbage. Do you know what the best and most versatile piece of equipment in the world is? Dumbbells! Dumbbells are inexpensive, they don't take up much space, and they give you literally hundreds of exercise variations you can do right in your own home. Another great benefit of dumbbells is that the exercises are simple, easy to learn, and you can start with very light weights - at any age or experience level - and slowly build up. 

Joining a gym is not a requirement, but I do highly recommend it, especially once you move past the beginner stage. The advantage of joining a gym is the huge variety of equipment and programs you'll have available, as well as a motivational, supportive, instructional atmosphere.  

I often hear beginners say, "I have to get in shape first before I join a gym." That may sound funny and completely backwards, but I do understand. Many people are intimidated with health clubs. They think only "buff" people go to the gym, but it's really the other way around - people have "buffed" bodies BECAUSE they've been going to the gym! It helps to realize that everyone has to start somewhere, and everyone is "out of shape" in the beginning.  

If you choose not to join a club, that's fine, but my recommendation then would be to slowly begin adding some extra equipment to your "home gym" setup as you become more advanced. You could add a barbell set, a fully adjustable bench, squat rack and possibly a cable-pulley apparatus with a high and a low pulley. You can often find a multi-purpose home gym that combines these features into one unit. 

Ultimately, where you train is your personal decision - the important thing is that you DO train and that you understand the importance of the powerful synergy created between nutrition, cardio and strength training. Dieting - without the exercise - just doesn't work. In fact, it can destroy your metabolism and actually make you fatter in the long run!  

Burn the Fat, Feed The Muscle shows you how to implement nutrition, cardio and weight training all into one simple, comprehensive, step by step plan. Combined with the right mental approach and motivational tools, you have yourself a winning formula that always succeeds, regardless of where you choose to work out!
