If you could take a pill and be in shape, then no one would need a weight loss camp, would they? Unfortunately, such a pill doesn’t exist.
What would you say if I told you that you could follow five simple steps to accomplish the same weight loss result? You would do it, wouldn’t you? Okay then; let’s get started with the five basic steps to creating your very own foolproof weight loss tool. With your own personally created tool, you can have your magic pill and get in the ideal physical condition. You will soon see the magic in how this works. Volumes have been written and details have been debated. However, there is one common denominator to each of the steps outlined. See if you can identify it. The answer will be revealed shortly.
1. Tell everyone that you are starting a weight loss program.
Too often people tend to be reluctant to announce their weight loss intentions just in case they don’t follow through so they can avoid embarrassment. Use this to your advantage. Create a built in system of success for yourself by letting everyone that you interact with know about your weight loss plan. People really don’t expect you to stick to it and they are eager to ask how you are doing with your weight loss program. If they don’t exercise themselves they may be secretly hoping that you will not succeed so that they can continue to justify not doing so themselves. When you do succeed, they will become uncomfortable with themselves because they know that if you can do it so can they. Make them motivated by your weight loss success when you happily report your progress. Knowing that people will be asking you how it is going on a daily basis will keep you motivated because of the positive pressure created.
2. Keep an weight loss journal.
No one lies in a personal diary. The fact is that if you do keep a weight loss journal you will be completely honest to yourself with everything you write in it. Since you don’t want to spoil your perfect entries of compliance to your program, you will do one of two things. You will adhere to your self-promises and write them in your weight loss journal, or you will stop keeping the journal. It is that predictable. Keep the diary and you won’t play tricks on yourself.
3. Take pictures, measurements, scale weight, and record your weight loss.
Yes, the mind does play tricks on you. Unless you take the pictures, document your measurements and scale weight, you will not be able to fully recognize your physical reality. You will not be able to determine your weight loss progress. You will simply live in a fantasy world of denial. Face the music and document the facts. Many people are reluctant to take “before” pictures and they only want to consider taking the “after”; without a “before” there is no “after”. Your mind will play tricks on you when you see your pictures with nothing to compare them against. You will be in denial of ever looking any different than you do now. Take the pictures and give yourself a wakeup call to action.
4. Exercise in a weight loss group.
When you exercise in a group, especially if it is a personalized experience with a great instructor, participants will form attachments. Being attached to the instructor, the other participants, positive benefits and the sense of accomplishment will hold you to the program. Doing exercise alone does not allow as many social benefits, nor does it hold you to a scheduled plan that cannot be put off until later. If you should miss a workout, you will surely hear about it from the others who missed you. Personal recognition when belonging to a group is an important element in holding you to your weight loss program.
5. Arrange EFT prepayment.
The standard procedure in the fitness business is that the client prepays services in advance. This is why live-in weight loss camps are so successful now. Face it. Unless you show up to exercise, you will receive no weight loss benefit from the most well planned workout by the best trainer on the planet. Exercise psychology predicts that when a client has previously committed to take a workout, they will be likely to follow through. The strongest commitment that works for most people is the financial commitment. When you have prepaid funds at stake, you will think twice about cancelling at the last minute or hitting the snooze button again.
Now you have the five steps to creating your most effective exercise tool and it is better than any make believe weight loss pill. Make it real for yourself and get the results you want. Know what the common denominator is for my five steps?

Just take a look at the videos on YouTube if you don’t believe what you see and read here. Let Corey tell his story in his own personal blog site, http://www.witness-for-fitness.com where he reveals all the inspiring secrets that keep him going strong.
Maintaining all of the good habits will be easier at home after spending 16 weeks under correct supervision at the Las Vegas Weight Loss Camp. Being surrounded by professional fitness trainers, weight loss coaches, and people who care lays the groundwork for a lifetime of health and fitness.
Thanks Corey, for letting us share your inspiring results for all. Everyone can go to Youtube channel “coreydillaha” to review his first month of workout videos and see just what he is doing at our Las Vegas Weight Loss Camp.
Read on and I will explain.
Whether you are a professional fitness trainer, social worker, family member, or an obesity hotline volunteer, there is a chance that you may be in a position to encourage a person with morbid obesity.
The biggest obstacle for a person of double body weight to lose weight will be the stress on their joints and heart from exercise. Let me share my experience in finding a key to overcome this problem with my client, Corey.
Not all adult trikes are rated for heavier bodyweights, so be sure before you buy one.
Corey’s body weight of over 400 pounds makes load-bearing exercise difficult to sustain. He began at 430 lbs and was hardly able to walk or stand for more than a few moments at a time without becoming breathless and legs burning with pressure.
The adult Industrial tricycle is the best non-weight bearing exercise choice for a large and heavy person.
A two-wheeled cycle will not brake safely in downhill situations under heavier bodyweights. A single-speed tricycle with two rear tires plus hand and foot brakes give maximum support and deceleration stability.
Although the maximum manufacturer rating is only 400 pounds, some modifications can be made to provide additional support and reinforcements. Our local bike shop J.T.’s of Henderson, not only assembled our trike but also added an extra wide seat with springs and a solid steel seat post with welded base plate to reinforce the seat. This trike completes Corey’s program with non-weight bearing cardiovascular workouts with constantly changing scenery.
Our private guard-gated community encircles a golf course offering street inclines varying from flat to 25 degrees. The intensity progression will be a natural one based on Corey’s ability to overcome each hill climb before approaching his next challenge. Twice daily bike rides allow plenty of recovery between morning and evening outings. From the very first ride there has been a steady progression of success in both weight loss and conditioning.
Travelling exercise such as cycling allows change of scenery and constant sensory stimulation. This makes an enjoyable experience, which is more likely to be done more frequently. Also, the movement creates airflow that causes evaporation of sweat to keep you more comfortable. You won’t recognize the effort and intensity as much because you are moving. The non-weight bearing activity of cycling opens possibility of greater duration and frequency.
Be sure to have the seat height adjusted to allow adequate leg extension with about 25 percent knee flexion when allowing the bottom pedal to drop to the 6 o’clock position. This will enable a more functional motion while distributing more of the work over more leg muscles. Too low a seat height results in too much quadriceps and burning above the knee.
Safety on three wheels is better than two, but the rider must become accustomed to the turning radius. Corey finds himself leaning on turns with a body weight shift to control the cycle through a curve. Dynamic balance is required just as it would be on two wheels. As always, wear a safety helmet.

Corey gradually slipped into a sedentary lifestyle for 20 years due to his dedication in driving for the family trucking business. To compound the situation, a year and a half ago a serious motorcycle accident resulted in 6 weeks of hospitalization. The debilitating pain and muscle atrophy caused Corey to slip even further down the spiral of inactivity and weight gain. Long after healing, with a body weight that teetered 450 lbs, he found that he was unable to regain his former abilities.
The answer to how training should begin for a person of any age or condition is to assess and then progress. Corey’s first week of progress should encourage just about anyone who faces the challenge of regaining health and fitness. Almost immediately upon beginning his live-in weight loss program, Corey is seeing dormant muscle and motor movement reactivating. Daily personal bests are occurring with each workout. Each day’s workout progress is astounding. The human body craves and thrives on movement. With a tentative approach, my goal as his personal trainer is to discover his capabilities beginning with the least challenging exercises and progressing until he reaches a level of reasonable effort. A positive sense of accomplishment builds for the next successful achievement. Each approach is a revelation for Corey to learn that he can actually activate dormant muscle and realize capabilities he hadn’t used in years.
Seated in his special chair (rated for 500 lbs) he works a bilateral hand crank with adjustable resistance varying his RPMs. This method of cardiovascular conditioning is said to be 50% more beneficial than treadmill exercise. The best thing about it is that it allows him to work in a non-weight bearing position and still increase his heart rate for conditioning. The catalyst for increased benefit is the addition of oxygen. Corey hand bikes while breathing concentrated oxygen. Clinical recommendation is 20 minutes for energizing and recovery. First thing upon arising and after each workout, he exercises while on oxygen.
Basic Kettlebell technique was learned with two-handed swinging practiced first with ten pounds, then progressing to 18 and 26-pound kettle bells. Short bouts of all exercise drills followed by sitting on the exercise ball allowed Corey to recover from the leg fatigue under his 429 lbs. He seems to do better during locomotion drills rather than static standing. This could be that he is preoccupied with the motor coordination or it could be that weight shifting is just enough change of leg pressure to allow him to continue longer. Both concepts are positive factors in getting him to increase activity duration.
With that same concept, I have Corey doing walking drills while whirling a jump rope with a figure eight pattern in opposition to each step. He does it well and claims that the additional upper body can be felt in his core as well as adding cardio effort.
The best body activator has proven to be the balance work. Right after the arm bike workout in his support chair, I then progressed him to a seated position on an exercise ball. The ball being used for Corey is a 75” Duraball Pro that is 2,000 pound rated and burst proof. From a simple progression of sitting to weight shifting, he was able to roll himself out on his back and then roll up to a seated posture while activating his core muscles. This ball is now his seat of choice. His very first weight workout was done while lying on the ball. He did dumbbell chest presses, flyes, and pullovers. It went exceedingly well and my assistant trainer agreed that he had never seen a client adapt so readily to these challenges. Porting around the additional weight has given him certain strengths. It was a very encouraging first day of training.
The Bosu Balance Trainer was our next adventure. This has proven to be the fast track to strengthen the feet and lower extremities along with increasing balance. With the Bosu in the middle of a doorway, Corey was able to begin his progress by holding onto both sides of the doorway. He practiced step-ups and then achieved 30-second static stances until his feet and legs burned and he had to stop to sit for recovery. With each of the last seven days this week, Corey’s performance ability during his first week at weight loss camp has increased ten-fold.
