Currently, I'm not sure when the official date is :(, but that just means more free workouts for you! 

Check out the How to Use QuickFit Club page for details!

QuickFit Club is still a work in progress and with your help and feedback the site should be easy to follow and navigate. The plan for the site is...simple, simple, simple....


Here’s how it works: 
  1. New memberships begin on the first of the month. Sign up any time prior and you will receive instructions and an email reminding you when it’s time to begin. 
  2. On the first of the month, login to QuickFit Club and go to the “Member Home” Page and print out your monthly motivation and workout calendar. 
  3. Complete your workouts on the days specified, or what fits your own schedule. There’s a box for you to check when you’ve completed the workout. The video workouts can be done anywhere you have internet access! The videos are optimized for all media players, types and sizes. 
  4. Check the schedule for the weekly check-in chats (&/or webinars). 
  5.  Review the theme of the month and your focus items! 
  6. Print out Grocery Lists or Food Lists, if needed. 
  7. Check out the latest recipes! 

At this point, we a researching the best system for the chats so we can do text, voice and video, probably not all at the same time but I know eventually a live video chat is our goal. Which means..lucky you, a later launch for us, but more free Quickfit club time for you! If you haven't already get over to Quickfitclub.com and get started!

Four more ways to burn stubborn body fat! The last part in our series! 

Sip Green Tea.

Fat? Yes, Eat Fat! 
To get lean and cut, you have to eat less calories and fewer carbs. You also need a healthy balance of good fats, especially when you are cutting back on calories, carbs or both.  Healthy fats include foods such as lean red meat, almonds, walnuts, cashews or 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil. Why does fat help you burn fat?  It helps make the body more effective in using and burning fat - as long as calories and carbs remain under control.

Thyroid Support.
When you eat less in an attempt to lose body fat,  your metabolism adapts and can begin to burn less calories. One way to circumvent the slowdown is with phosphates. A combo of calcium phosphate, potassium phosphate and sodium phosphate given to strict dieters yielded a 12-19% more elevated metabolism than dieters who did not use phosphates.

Write It Down. 
You've heard this before, but it's still one of the most underused tips in shedding fat. Dieters who record what they eat, meal by meal, day by day, not only make better choices, but cheat less and eat fewer total calories. Writing it down keeps you honest and is a tool for reminding you that getting lean is a day by day process.


MOTIVATION
Five proven Tips To Help Eliminate depressed days and get you motivated and ack on track!

 Did you know that being lonely is a normal part of our everyday lives. Lets face it, we've all been there. We get depressed when we fail in our exams, when we're rejected by the person we love, or when someone very close to us passes away. That's just part of life. But, depression, however, can be more fatal than just plain loneliness. It could render Life-Long consequences that could ruin your Self-Esteem, Health, and Well-Being in the process. Well today is your lucky day because I'm going to share with you some great tips to help you conquer the 'Melancholy Mood' so you can get the MOST bliss out of your daily activities.

Tip #1. Do you get enough Light and Sunshine? 
Did you know that lack of exposure to sunlight is responsible for the secretion of the hormone called Melatonin, which could trigger a dispirited mood and/or a lethargic condition. Melatonin is only produced in the dark. What it does is it lowers the body temperature and makes you feel sluggish. (which is why it can be good to help you sleep) So, if you are always cooped up in your room (with the curtains closed), it would be difficult to restrain yourself from staying in bed. This is the reason why many people suffer from depression much more often in winter than in the other seasons. It's simply because the nights are longer. If you can't afford to get some sunshine, you can always lighten up your room with brighter lights to help offset the darkness. Or... You could go have lunch outside the office for a change and take frequent walks in the early afternoon instead of driving your car over short distances. The choices are endless. It's really up to you.

 Tip #2. Keep Busy and Get Inspired. 
You'll be more likely to overcome any feeling of depression if you keep your mind busy doing the activities you like doing the most. Do the things you love. If you're a little short on cash, you could engage in simple stuff like taking a leisurely stroll in the park, playing sports, reading books, or engaging in any activity that you have passion for and would love to pursue. Also, set a Goal. No matter how difficult or discouraging life can be, remain firm and have an unshakable belief that you are capable of doing anything you desire. With this kind of positive attitude, you will attain a cheerful disposition to beat the blues.

Tip #3. Take a Break. Sit back and Relax.
I mean it! Listen to some soothing music you like. Soak in a nice warm bath. Simply take a break from your stressful workload and spend the day just goofing around doing the things you love. In other words, go have fun. Life's to short as it is.

Tip #4. Maintain a healthy diet and Stay Fit.
Avoid foods with lots of Sugar, Caffeine or Alcohol. Sugar and caffeine may give you a brief moment of energy; but they will later bring about Anxiety, Tension and Internal problems. Alcohol on the other hand is a depressant. Many people would drink alcohol to simply "forget their problems." All they're doing is aggravating their conditions in the process. Also, did you know that exercising regularly is a vital depression buster. Why you ask? Simply because it allows your body to produce more Endorphins than usual. Endorphins are sometimes called "the happy chemicals" because of their Stress-Reducing and Happiness-Inducing properties.

Tip #5. Get a Social Life outside of work.
No man is an island. Your inner circle of friends are there to give you moral support. Spending time and engaging in worthwhile activities with them could give you a very satisfying feeling. And we all now... nothing feels better than having group support. And... never underestimate the power of Touch. What I mean is... doesn't it feel so good when someone pats you on the back and gives you words of encouragement during your most challenging times? Hug or embrace someone today. Get intimate. Establish close ties with your family and friends. The love and care expressed by others could tremendously boost your immune system and fend off illnesses. Best of all, you'll live a more secured and happy life.


TRAINING

Why QuickFit Club is Different:

QuickFit Club is exercise based weight loss!  Rather than focus on restrictive dieting, your goal is consistent exercise that is progressive. Meaning you get stronger each week!

Challenging yourself with the same routine for 4 weeks enables you to
  • Master the movements (exercises)
  • Get stronger
  • Impact your metabolism
  • Burn more calories at rest (yup! just sitting on the couch & burning fat!)
  • Sharpen your mind-muscle connection!
In simple terms, your body learns how to get more from each exercise in less time and gets you in shape faster than dieting!
 
If your workouts change too frequently, your body can’t adapt and won’t change. On the other side, if your don’t change your workouts after 6-8 weeks, your body becomes complacent and won’t change!

QuickFit Club workouts use supersets and specific exercises that work more of your body and boost your metabolism for permanent weight loss! Check out the success stories on Fitnessmakeover.com!  Most people lose 2-5 inches in the first month! That is 2 dress sizes! Pounds on the scale drop too, but the measurements are what matters most!  Click here to learn more!
