    * Her Results

    * The steps to achieving these RESULTS

    * Big AH AH moments

    * Previous pain points

    * Her advice to anyone wanting to make a positive health and lifestyle change



     





    NINA’S RESULTS AFTER THE LYF SCHOOL 12 WEEK LIFE CHANGE PROGRAM



    Nina lost 8cm around her waist.

    Nina lost 9kg in weight.

    No longer reliant on medication for joint pain, and digestive issues.

    Energy levels are now consistently high throughout the day.

    Sleep is now high quality, with Nina now waking refreshed for the first time.

    All anxiety has gone.

    Nina’s stamina has increased; improved focus, clarity and ability to be more efficient at work being a game changer for her career.

    Bloating gas and constipation has gone.

    Nina’s cravings for sweet and salty processed foods has disappeared as she is now a ‘fat burner’.

    Nina’s joint pain, muscle aches have now gone even with a new training load.

    Nina has gone from being sedentary to now run/walking up to 5km a few times a week with energy to spare.

    A ripple effect inspiring her husband, co workers and family and friends has occurred - for example Nina’s husband lost 7kgs and 2 pant sizes.

    Nina did not have to wear spanks to her friends wedding, her goal of wearing high waisted jeans with a shirt tucked in is now possible and Nina’s ‘doughy belly’ is now non existent.



     

    SO WHO IS NINA?

    Nina is a 55 year old multi tasking queen, a wife, mother, grandmother, and a multiple puppy mum, with a full time full on job.



    "Im tired of hiding behind my clothes and trying to camouflage my belly. I know

    carrying around the extra weight is not good for my health and always worrying if I

    look fat is exhausting. I want to shed that way of thinking I want to tuck a shirt in my pants if I please.

    Be ready for aging”.



    Further explaining,

    “I also have a stressful job with many projects going on at the same time.

    I am a people pleaser and will almost always do what is needed to make sure those around me are content.

    I am almost always somewhat anxious.”







    Nina’s shares her main pain points:



    “Chronic knee pain: my knee is what stops me from running.

    * Arthritis flares

    * Menopause (sucks)

    * Bloating

    * Gas

    * Constipation

    * Anxiety

    * Weight Gain"



     



    Nina’s Goals Were:

    *Run a 5km on May 2nd

    *Weight loss, less bloating

    *Firmer abdomen (right now my belly is like a mound of unbaked bread dough)

    * More confidence in what my body can do”



     

    SO HOW DID NINA GO FROM FEELING FATIGUED, OVERWEIGHT, AND SEDENTARY TO ENERGETIC, LEAN, AND HIGH ON LIFE, MOVING TO HER OWN BEAT? 



    “You have to have someone in your corner, when you want to make a big life change, and i do consider this a big change,

    Listener Questions Part 2

    Listener Questions Part 2

    Jaimie and Pete co host another great episode of listener questions on a wide variety of health and performance topics.



    Topics covered.



    Mental strategies when training with no race goal, how to aid immune system, how to quench cravings, approaches to get through the session when motivation and energy is lacking, eating pre and post big training sessions, pre-run food and intermittent fasting, aiding immune system with diet and how to alter training when feeling run down, MAF training, and how to practice being more present and build mental strength.



     



    Thanks again to Modex for bringing the questions in and supplying all those listeners with some free Modex. Great to have you onboard !



    I’ve been using @modexnatural for months, & training the best I’ve trained in years. Very happy to announce we are working together in 2020.

    .

    Sure, I’ve changed lots of things that have helped get me back, not simply added Modex, but all the things I’ve changed are focused on improving energy production in one way or another, as is Modex.

    .

    Reducing free radicals & increasing nitric oxide are two major factors for better energy production via increased oxygen use in mitochondria. Modex targets these pathways. .

    Daily routines of ☀️, electrolytes, deep 😴, 🏊‍♂️ 🚲 🏃🏽,& @modexnatural, are a few things I’m prioritizing, & I’m feeling better than ever.

    Listener Questions Part 1

    Listener Questions Part 1

    We collaborated with MODEX to ask our followers on instagram what questions they had, in exchange for a free bottle of MODEX! We had a great response, and had to answer the questions over two podcast episodes.



    Topics we covered.



    Visualisation, cooking meat tender, cardio/exercise at home, healthy snacks at home, what goal for a session - heart rate/power/RPE, moderating training when races are far off, older athletes nutrition focus, riding faster without hurting immune system, pre and post exercise nutrition, and is whey protein a good recovery meal.

    LYOF Podcast: Diet changes for Ironman Performance with Darren, a LYOF Gold Client.

    LYOF Podcast: Diet changes for Ironman Performance with Darren, a LYOF Gold Client.

    Darren Toyne has a high level management job involving lots of travel, tiring long days, but he also has a love for Ironman. How does he balance all the pieces of life to enjoy it all? We catch up and find out.



    Interview with Darren -

    A Low carb athlete for many years, but still carrying excess weight, and experiencing bloating, we chat about what changes we made that helped him lose the weight, feel the best in decades, and love the food he is eating as well as the experiences of cooking the food.



    Darren raced Ironman Busselton in 2019 after a lot of travel for work. We cover how he accepted what he could and could not do in training, resulting in a manageable balance between work and triathlon life and an enjoyable race in Busselton despite far from ideal preparation.



    His trigger phrase for being relaxed and in the moment during tough times in the race is priceless - forgive, forget, focus.



    Darren begins by telling us about himself, his job, and triathlon past experiences. the good, and the funny.



    After the interview ends, I analyse what we talked about, and give it to you in practical recommendations for you to try, and ideas that may help you, so don’t miss that at the end.



    A great low carb ironman perspective, we know everyone will get something from this.

    Thanks again to Darren for taking the time, and being a A grade client ;)
