What is your wellness program doing for you?
That is a good question to ask yourself if you actually have one in your company. I talked to a few companies that had wellness programs working for them and they said they were not happy with what they were paying for and their exact words was a joke. This may not be the case with all wellness programs but I would like to think we at Mossa International are giving a lot more than everyone else. So far what I see the wellness programs offer stress management techniques and recommendations of working out and dieting. We provide the advice and fitness guidelines they are missing. We also provide work out rewards programs to keep you motivated. Usually these are set up by office pools with their own money. We use our money and our resources to provide bigger incentives to get you in the gym. You want a free vacation, hit the gym, lose the weight and beat all your colleagues at work. Your wife or husband will be supportive of this because who does not want a free vacation. The rewards will be different and depends on the size of the company, the bigger the company the bigger the rewards. We want this program to not only get people in shape but to help further develop business relationships with everyone. We know not everyone will like each other but people who may never said a word to each other may actually have something in common to talk about. So worker moral may go up and also productivity. These are two things that can help increase revenue in your company and we have not even talked about lowering health insurance costs. The value of this program can be tremendous for a company.

This part of the program is more creative. I sometimes like it when you do a set that has 30 reps instead of the traditional 15-8 reps that we like to follow. This is where you decide if you are going to focus on strength or endurance. Feel free to change up your reps at anytime you feel like you want to change them. I sometimes even have a few of my clients do 40 reps. I have done as much as 60 on certain exercises so have fun.
This routine can be a 4-5 day routine also, we prioritize each muscle and work them out each day with the extra days to focus on your body parts that you want to pay special attention to. So in some cases you can do certain body parts up to twice a week instead of the normal once a week. So for example for myself I want to make my chest bigger so I in the past would do a second chest work out at the end of the week. So pick a body part that you want to see look better and go for it. You can do the same work out again for that body part or we can change it up with another routine.
Now we mix up our weight training workouts with a good combination of weights, cables and machines. This is pretty much where you can be for the rest of your work outs. This program is for people who have moved into the program or have worked out for a while.
These are for people who have some experience with dumbbell or barbell work outs. Since you are just starting to use them keep the reps high and controlled. Don’t worry about how heavy you can lift and just worry about doing it right.
Take the work outs from level 1 work outs and do them at least 2 days a week on weights and fit in as much cardio as you can. The more you work out the more results you see. Your priority is working out each muscle group at least once a week. Please not with all programs the goal is to move to the next level.
This is where people who have not ever worked out and who are obese should start. The reason why you start here because it is important that you start out slow to prevent injury. Start out walking and the absolute best thing you can do is swim. Swimming works every part of your body in a way that even weight training can not do. I personally have not been more sore after swimming than anything else. You can mix in the weight training routine from level one also but keep it simple.
Fitness in general should be simple and consistent but still a challenge. The hard part is keeping it challenging because the more consistent you are the stronger you become and the more endurance you get. I just add more weight and go faster on my cardio. Like on the stair climber my goal is to get 4 miles in 30 minutes. It is definitely a challenge for me to do that. My weight routine is always about how much can I lift for how many times. I lift “heavy” but I usually try to see if I can do about 6-10 reps. I rarely do the max out sets because the more you do those the longer it takes for me to recover afterwards. Now for the women I don’t want you to be afraid to increase the weight in your work outs. You don’t eat enough to gain weight. If that still bothers you mentally add 5 reps to what you are doing. You should always go in the gym and try to think I am better than I was the day before. That is what has kept me going all these years and has helped me keep going.
When working out you may have some people who can be a sabatour of your work outs. They may not understand why you are working out now when you may have never done a work out program before. They do this directly or indirectly. Like in some cases I have a few clients that have family members that buy mostly sweets and it will constantly tempt my clients. Now I am not one of those people who say you can never eat that stuff but it is a test to keep it in moderation. I am one of those people who is aware that if it’s in the house I may not be able to control myself. So you have to know who your support system is when you are working out, who other than myself is routing for you to succeed. I do say listen to the ones who are negative, even if they live in your house. Use it all as motivation to push you to your success because you are the one who looks at you in the mirror, and not them.
Cheat, cheat, cheat – If you want to be successful in your fitness quest – you can’t be perfect ALL the time. Your body needs (craves) foods that are sometimes irresistable….so why resist? My recommendation is moderation – cheat by moderation.
