My name is Allen and this is a little site that I made to share some of my insights on fitness and my own personal fitness journey.
My fitness experience has had its ups and downs over the course of my life. When I was in my twenties I would go to the gym quite regularly. After work, I would grab my gym bag, lace up and hit the gym as much as 6 times a week. It was habit.
With a combination of heavy weight lifting and running, I was toned and in great shape to say the least. I could run a mile or so and not even get winded.
Then I hit my thirties. Yikes.
Not only did having kids take away from my free time but I was at the point in my life where my body was slightly slowing down. Although I love my kids more than anything, having my first born ended my gym career for a little while. My priorities simply changed.
Although my diet was never horrible, back in my twenties when I was working out almost every day of the week, I had the luxury of eating practically whenever I wanted and whatever I wanted. Stopping the habit of exercise did not fair well for my body.
I ballooned up 15 pounds in the first few months of having my first kid.
What Im getting at…
What I am trying to say is that I was way out of shape and I didn’t feel like myself as a result. I felt sluggish constantly. It was almost like the feeling when you eat a massive thanks giving dinner and all you can manage to do is sloth around in a semiconscious state of food coma.
Not only that but I wasn’t feeling sharp between the ears either. I felt almost as if my mind wasn’t functioning at full capacity.
Nevertheless, I hated how I looked and felt. I knew that I needed to make a positive change in my life. I had to overcome the slump that I was in.
However, I did not have too much time on my hands two years after my first child. With a second one on the way, I knew I needed to find a fitness solution that wouldn’t take too much time out of my day. I needed something short and sweet that I could partake in just a few times a week to lose fat and hopefully gain muscle.
Sounds unlikely that such a routine exists right? That’s what I thought too.
After sifting through the internet I found a program that claimed to do just what I was looking for called Old School New Body. I was skeptical at first. However, since it was so cheap, I thought I might as well give it a shot.
Long story short, I am so glad that I did.
