QUICK TIP – Sure you “could” have had a V8, but you might be glad you didn’t…

If someone tells you something is “100% Vegetable Juice” you tend to believe them.

But in her August blog post on FoodBabe.com, Vani Hari displayed a graphic of a twitter exchange where the Campbell Soup company representative admits that the “natural flavoring” in V8 juice may include “meat/seafood/poultry and/or dairy.”

In an update to her blog post, she included an exchange one of her team members had with a Campbell’s representative in a chat exchange online.

In it a Campbell’s rep. by the name of Kelly typed the following:

“The term “flavoring” refers to the oils or extracts that are obtained from spices and herbs. Natural flavoring may also include onion or garlic derivatives, as well as flavor derived from fruits, vegetables and their juices, or edible parts of plants. Other sources may include meat, seafood, poultry or dairy products, whose significant function in the food is flavoring rather than nutrition.”

Now, if you’re a vegetarian or vegan, and a regular V8 drinker, this obviously might cause you alarm.

As a result of Vani’s blog post, a Change.org petition asking Campbell’s to remove any animal-based ingredients in its V8 and vegetable soup products skyrocketed from 200 to nearly 6,000 signatures in just a few hours.

In subsequent emails with Vani, Campbell’s denied that they might possibly use “meat/seafood/poultry and/or dairy” in their V-8 drink. They’ve also advised their customer care team to respond accordingly.

Coppell Trainer Spotlight Rookie of the Month – Jeff

    Posted in blog, Success Story    |    No Comments

Get You In Shape Spotlight Rookie of the Month – November 2014

The Get You In Shape team hand selects clients each month that we feel have transformed their health and fitness. This Get You In Shape Spotlight Rookie for November joined Get You In Shape in August 2014. Jeff Mann, a Boston native, moved to Coppell in April of this year to join the International Association of Venue Managers as their COO. Jeff has spent the last 16 years running sports arenas for NBA/NHL teams.

Q: Why did you decide to join the Get You In Shape program?  Like most people I just wasn’t happy with how I was feeling and my overall condition. I have a very active 12-year old son and I can’t imagine not being able to play games with him.

Q: What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program?  I think I have a very typical story. I was a Division I collegiate baseball athlete and I was always pretty active. Even after college, I continued to play sports and was in decent shape. As the years moved on, I was less and less active and it started to take a toll on me. I didn’t feel good physically and I didn’t like the way I looked.

JMannQ: What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape program? Everyone was very welcoming. I have never tried a class or setting like this before so I was nervous, but people went out of their way to say hello and make me feel welcome. The first workout was rough. I was in bad shape and realized I had a long way to go. But I felt as though I had accomplished something.

Q: What have been some of the tools you have used that have benefited you ?Tracking my diet in a journal and really planning my meals in advance has helped a lot. I am cooking more now than I have in years. I enjoy cooking at home, but when you are a single guy working long hours, it’s easy to just grab something quick. By planning my meals days in advance, I have what I need on hand and look forward to cooking.

Q: How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before? All I have really done is go to the gym and I was doing the same old routine for years. I was bored, I was not motivated at all, and the results (or lack of results) showed that. At GYIS, I enjoy the group setting. I don’t feel that I can quit or cut a workout short as I have done at the gym. I enjoy the group or team environment and it helps keep me motivated.

Q: What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Program? In the first 10 days, I lost 6.5 lbs and 7+ inches. I was then on the road for nearly two weeks with work and slid backward, but I am once again moving in the right direction. A big result that surprised me was my mile run time. I am NOT a runner. I have knee issues and it’s just not something I do or enjoy. When I was first told I would be timed, I was hoping to do it in under 14 mins. After just a week of the GYIS program, I did it in under 11 minutes. Then just this morning (10/8/14), I was really surprised to see that I did it in under 10 minutes! So in just about a month’s time I am well ahead of where I thought I was based on my previous work on the treadmill.

I am not morning person. Most of my career has been long days and late nights. Surprisingly, I actually enjoy the 6:30am class and in the past where I would have stayed up very late (at least midnight, if not later), I now find myself tired and wanting to go to bed around 10-10:30 and getting a better night’s sleep.

Q: What would you say to anyone looking at this program? I waited too long to try something new like this. If you want to feel better about your health, your appearance, and overall energy level , definitely give it a shot.

 

 

Coppell Trainer Spotlights of the Month – Chuck & Bart

    Posted in blog, Success Story    |    No Comments

Get You In Shape Spotlight Clients of the Month- Chuck & Bart – November 2014

This month’s Spotlight focus on the husbands of trainers, Julie McCan & Chaney Respondek: Chuck McCan & Bart Respondek.

Bart and Chuck_2

In addition to being Julie McCan’s husband, Chuck is the Director of Business Development for NexRev Inc. in Plano. He sells energy efficiency solutions to Retail and Theater clients. He has been a Coppell resident since 1994.

Chaney’s husband, Bart, works for Southwest Airlines in the Technology Dept and also lives in Coppell.

Q: Why did you decide to join the Get You In Shape program?

Chuck:  My wife Julie joined as a client and then became a trainer. She was transforming her health in a positive way and convinced me to try it.

Bart: Chaney made me. Seriously, I began because our oldest son participated, so I worked out with him to encourage him.

Q: What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program?

Chuck: I have always been into fitness and exercised pretty much every day; however I was in a routine. I did the same workout every day. I needed to change it up and work my entire body. I thought I was in great shape until I joined GYIS! The GYIS program turned out to be the perfect solution for me.

Bart: Fat and lazy, life was good. Actually, I have always worked out and was working out before I joined. I stayed with it after my son quit because I liked the focus on the overall body. I also needed to strengthen my core as I have inherited some lovely spine issues.

Bart and Chuck_1

Q: What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape program?

Chuck: Fun atmosphere, great workouts, happy people. My entire body seemed sore for the first few weeks, but it felt good knowing I was working muscles I did not know I had. They taught me the correct form to get the most out of each exercise and that really helped me. I quickly met some new people and felt welcome from day one.

Bart: I was already aware of it thru Chaney. The one thing I did not realize was the sense of community and encouragement.

Q: What have been some of the tools you have used that have benefited you?

Chuck: The equipment GYIS uses during workouts like slam balls, AbMats, wall balls, kettle bells, and the AbRoller definitely benefit my fitness. My overall body is stronger due to the exercises with this equipment. In addition, GYIS has sponsored many events like 5K runs, Sprint Triathlons, 100 mile run club, group bike rides, group swim lessons. These events are a great motivational tool to keeps me training. In 2014 I will complete eight Sprint Tri races, five 5K races, numerous 5K runs with the GYIS gang, bike rides, etc. It has been a great year!

Bart: The Advocare products and plans such as the 24-Day challenge.

Q: How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before?

Chuck: First we exercise outside (most of the time) hot or cold. It is great to be outdoors. Second of all, prior to GYIS, I worked out on my own, just me. GYIS is a group and there is a ton of support from the trainers and my peers. Thirdly, the trainers make sure each individual is doing the selected exercise correctly which makes a huge difference to your muscles and body.

Bart: Great looking trainers, one in particular (sorry, not you Brad). It is more of a team sport and I do not have to think about what I am going to work out.

Bart and Chuck Fist BumpQ: What makes Get you In Shape different or unique?

Chuck: It is an overall body workout that allows me to push my body as hard as I want. I like the flexibility in the daily schedule. If I cannot make the morning class I can go at lunchtime or in the evening.
The GYIS Cardio Club option on the off days is a great opportunity to improve my fitness.
My workout mates are my friends now. I see them at the Dog Park, grocery store and Farmers Market.

Q: What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Program?

Chuck:

  1. I eat better
  2. I sleep better
  3. I drink more water
  4. I motivate others outside of GYIS since I am so active
  5. I have improved my 1-mile run time over two minutes
  6. I have met many great people in Coppell and surrounding communities through GYIS, people I probably never would have met. That is the bonus of the program.

Bart: Stronger core, improved cardiovascular and stamina

Q: What would you say to anyone looking at this program?

Chuck: Jump in and get started. I have seen wonderful stories unfold over the years I have been involved in the program. Most know that my wife Julie is a trainer. I have many GYIS clients tell me how much they love Julie and how her support has changed their lives. I know they feel the same about the other trainers as well. The GYIS family is a great mix of people with different fitness and wellness needs. GYIS works for everyone.

Bart: If you want to join a family that makes working out fun then GYIS is the program for you.

Coppell Boot Camp Rookie Spotlight – 15 Pounds in 2 months

    Posted in blog, Success Story    |    No Comments

Get You In Shape Spotlight of the Month – October 2014

The Get You In Shape team hand selects clients each month that we feel have transformed their health and fitness. This Get You In Shape Spotlight Rookie for September joined Get You In Shape in July 2014 and started seeing improvements immediately.   Check it out below.

Amy Bishopt Before After Oct
Name, what you do, and where do you live?

Amy Bishop, I am CPA and work at firm in Flower Mound. I live in Coppell

Why did you decide to join the Get You In Shape program?
I wanted to lose weight and tone up. I wanted more energy for my kids and feel better about myself. Also wanted to eat healthier. I tried out Get You In Shape in January 2009 and had good success and wish I had kept with the program. I have tried working out on my own but got bored. I tried classes at the rec center but they did not include the nutrition portion. I had been talking with a friend at work and she reminded me of the time and results that I had when I did Get You In Shape back in 2009. Also, beginning in May 2014, I started to walk the park and then started the couch to 5k training. About 2 or 3 weeks into the training, I started to notice my knees were killing me. I researched what it could be and found that I might have runner’s knee. I got the bands and they stopped hurting. I read more about runner’s knee and found that it was the muscles around the knee that are weak. So in the end, I need strength training and a support group. That is why I returned. I had the results, enjoyed the workouts and the community.

What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Coppell Fitness Camp Program?
For years, I had not been doing much. I would try and follow the Weight Watchers program but get bored or let stress eating take over. Never added the exercise, much.

What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape Coppell Fitness program?
I was glad to see that there were all fitness levels in the classes. The trainers had modify the exercises for all fitness levels as well.

First week, I liked that they were able to take the beginners and show them all the exercises. I know that is not too common but was nice. I did not feel too overwhelmed.

First month, I was feeling better. I had lost around 8 pounds and 17 ½ inches. Also, I was doing the cardio club and it helped with my endurance.

Second month, I lost another 7 pounds (and I had gone on vacation) and another 5 inches. I was able to improve my mile time and 5k time as well.

What have been some of the tools you have used that have benefited you?
MyFitnessPal app. I changed from Weight Watchers to just MyFitnessPal. Advocare products. I did the cleanse in May before starting the Get You In Shape Coppell boot camp and have continued with guidance from Cynthia and Brad.

When I was on vacation, I was able to print off the ABCs of Boot Camp and some of workout plans.

How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before? What makes Get you In Shape different or unique?
The community of people. Everyone is nice and welcoming. The program is not just exercise. There is nutrition as well. The weekly and monthly newsletter that are sent out have good tips to incorporate into everyday life. Each exercise, the trainers show all the different modification to do for your fitness level.

What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Coppell Boot Camp Program?
I lost around 8 pounds and 17 ½ inches the first month and another 7 pounds and 5 inches the next month. Also, I improved my mile time from the first month to the next by over a minute and my 5k was 5 minute improvement, all do to adding cardio club in addition to boot camp.
What would you say to anyone looking at the Get You In Shape Coppell Fitness Program? 

If you are looking for a workout with variety, this is the place. Each day is a new workout that works the muscles differently. The trainers are knowledgeable and encouraging.

Coppell Fitness Boot Camp – Spotlight of the Month Scarlet

    Posted in blog, Success Story    |    No Comments

Get You In Shape Spotlight of the Month – October 2014

The Get You In Shape team hand selects clients each month that we feel have transformed their health and fitness. This Get You In Shape Spotlight Rookie for September joined Get You In Shape in July 2014 and started seeing improvements immediately.   Check it out below.

Name, what you do and where you live?
Scarlet Kirby and I am a HRIS Analyst for Michaels Stores and lives in Coppell.

Why did you decide to join the Get You In Shape program?
At the time I joined, I had recently moved to Coppell from Austin. I was walking around the Andy Brown Park in the evening when I saw a group of people holding in ‘plank position’ on the sidewalk near the pavilion. Prior to that moment, I had been doing a lot of ‘thinking’ about joining an exercise program as a way to get out and meet new people in the community, and for my own health benefit. Of course, ‘thinking’ is usually where it ended. That was – until I saw the evening group and talked to Cynthia Linder about the program. I went home, googled ‘Get You In Shape’ and decided this was exactly the right type of exercise environment for me.

What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program?
Exercise was not part of my lifestyle and had not been for a very long time. I had been a single mother for years and I didn’t prioritize exercise and overall health into my busy life. I was often ‘on-the-go’ and didn’t make the time or I was too tired to exercise. My outside appearance may have looked like I was healthy but on the inside I was not. I had a sedentary lifestyle, made unhealthy eating choices, and had high cholesterol.

What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape program?
Within the first week of going, I was hooked. Naturally, my body was sore but it was a good feeling and I wanted to continue going. I received quick results by losing a few pounds and noticed toning in my arms and stomach (my daughter even noticed and complimented me on my new strong shape). I was sleeping better and making healthier food choices. After only five months of joining, I completed my first triathlon.

What have been some of the tools you have used from the Get You In Shape Coppell Fitbess Camp that have benefited you?
There are so many tools I have used because Get You In Shape provides you with many resources to help you reach your goals. The weekly emails with reminders and trainer tips help to keep me focused and motivated. I also enjoy taking the Advocare supplements as part of my daily regimen and drinking plenty of water throughout the day. This has complemented my exercise activities and provided me with an additional level of energy. Another great benefit to the program is that it doesn’t end with boot camp and Get You In Shape is always involved in planning organized groups to train for triathlons, running events, etc.

How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before?
Get you In Shape is different from any other program because I am still going after two years. At other programs, I was simply making aScarlet Kirby_After monthly donation because I would pay the dues and didn’t go. This program is designed for people of all shapes and sizes, ages and fitness levels. I actually enjoy waking up early to go to a 5:30am class. The trainers always change it up or have something new or different to keep it fun. Brad and Cynthia Linder and every one of the trainers motivate you and take a genuine interest in your fitness helping to set new goals.

What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Program?
Each year I receive required company biometric screening as part of our benefits program, and consistently for years my cholesterol was in the ‘alert’ range. Since joining Get You In Shape two years ago, exercising regularly, and making healthier food choices, I have lowered my cholesterol to a healthy level (I now have an apple next to my cholesterol test instead of an exclamation point!). The regular exercise has also helped me to reduce stress, sleep better, and just feel good about myself.

What would you say to anyone looking at this program?

The Get You In Shape program is an investment in your health and overall wellness. The trainers take a genuine interest in each and every person at class to make sure they are reaching their fitness goals while motivating each individual to do their best and push you to the next level. It has been one of the best choices I have made for myself and would be for anyone looking for this type of fitness environment.

FAQs:

What if I miss a Day?  You will receive the opportunity to attend up to 6 days of workouts.  You USE it during those 7 days, or you LOSE IT.

What about bad weather or rain? If it’s raining, we will be either under the outdoor pavilion in the Andy Brown East parking lot or inside the Coppell Recreation and Aquatic Center. All evening sessions will be outside, regardless of the weather.

If I decide I want to join the Get You In Shape Coppell Fitness program, what is the cost? We have different program options to fit all your training needs, as well as your budget.  With programs ranging from 3 months up to 12 months in length, you can be rest assured that for a monthly investment of between $159/month — $219/month, you’ll have access to Coppell’s premier Fat Loss fitness program, a done-for-you training program that’s guaranteed to give you incredible results, and a group of fitness professionals that are second to none in Coppell.  All individuals who continue past their first 7 days will have continued access to high-quality fitness training at a fraction of the cost of working one-on-one with a personal trainer.

Do I have to continue after my first 7 days? When you register for our 7-Day Jump Start program, you are only committing to 7 days of fitness training.  We do NOT require participants to continue training with us, although we hope that after 7 days we WILL have the great opportunity to work with you toward reaching all your fitness goals!

I’m not in shape, can I do this program? Almost everyone who inquires about our services asks this question.  The simple answer is a resounding “YES, you CAN do this program … and experience GREAT SUCCESS!”  Unlike many gyms, personal trainers, and workout facilities that just deliver a “workout of the day”, our group personal training program is carefully designed to not only accommodate different fitness levels and abilities, but also to help our clients experience consistent progression toward increased strength, improved body composition, and reduced risk of injury.

Get You In Shape has been featured on ABC, CBS, the national TV show ‘The Doctor’s TV’, in the Dallas Morning News, the Fort Worth Star Telegram, and many other media outlets.  Brad and Cynthia Linder, owners of Get You In Shape, joined a select group of the world’s leading health and fitness entrepreneurs by becoming Best Selling Authors of 3 Steps To YOUR BEST BODY In Record Time.

 

Coppell Trainer Spotlight of the Month: Joe O’Brien

Coppell Trainer Spotlight of the Month:  Joe O’Brien

The Get You In Shape team hand selects clients each month that we feel have transformed their health and fitness. This Get You In Shape Spotlight Rookie for September joined Get You In Shape in July 2014 and started seeing improvements JoeOBrienimmediately.   Check it out below.

Name, what you do, and where do you live?  Joe O’Brien, Director of Engineering for Triumph Accessory Services – Grand Prairie (Aerospace company), Coppell

Why did you decide to join the Get You In Shape program?  I wanted to lose weight and get into better physical condition.

What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program?  Much like it is now, but minus some neck and back pain, some pounds, and with more energy and drive to improve upon this initial progress. I have minimal excess time due to work demands and family, but I believed that I could really benefit from getting back into shape through regular exercise.

What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape program?  In the first week, I was very pleased with the weight loss I was experiencing and the tone improvement. At the end of the first month, I physically felt better: I noticed that I was sleeping better, my neck pain and back pain was subsiding and reducing in frequency and intensity, and I had lost around 10 lbs. I am now in my second month and am excited about improvements in my running ability in both speed and endurance.

What have been some of the tools you have used that have benefited you?  I have been very impressed by the information made available through Get You In Shape. Especially early in the program, I would consult this information to learn what types of foods to eat. The My Fitness Pal app has been quite helpful in keeping me accountable in my eating. I have also benefited from using a food scale to determine the amount of types of foods I will need to eat in order to meet a target calorie count. I have a digital scale on which I weigh myself several times each day (maybe too often J). This scale serves to keep me daily accountable in the foods I am eating, the workouts I am performing, and the effect these two have on my weight. Finally, I have kept a large (32-oz) water bottle on me throughout the day in order to ensure I would hydrate sufficiently for efficient body operation.

How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before? What makes Get you In Shape different or unique?  I have worked with private trainers, gone through collegiate training programs, worked out on my own at home, and worked out on my own at various gyms. I have found Get You In Shape to differ from all of these programs because of the knowledge available primarily in the area of nutrition. I have always attempted to eat relatively healthily, however, I now know I ate too much (even though it may have been of good things), I did not eat often enough to maintain metabolism, I did not drink enough water consistently, and I too often indulged in sweets, alcohol, empty carbs, etc. not accounting rigidly enough for their caloric intake and/or their effect on my body’s ability to operate efficiently. I also really enjoy the trainer-led, outside, group workout, push yourself at your own pace (but push yourself as the trainers encourage you and keep you accountable!) format that is quite unique in my experience.

What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Program?  In the first month, I lost 10 lbs. and many inches as my tone improved. Now in my second month, I have lost a couple more pounds and noticed more tone improvement and am noticing less frequent neck tightness, back pain, and knee pain. I am sleeping better and more energetic even though I get a little less sleep because I am working out at 5:30am! My flexibility has greatly improved, and my running speed and endurance have improved quite a bit.

What would you say to anyone looking at this program? This program is holistic. It takes into account that, in order to reach your goals, whatever they may be, you must address all aspects of your life. You must define and keep your goal(s) in the forefront of your mind in order to maintain sufficient motivation to sustain your effort and discipline, and you must know that proper nutrition is critical towards meeting your goals. The Get You In Shape  personnel are fantastic! They are great motivators, knowledgeable and fun to be around. Another reason I believe Get You In Shape is effective is because of the program’s use of the concept of proprioception or muscle confusion. Get You In Shape constantly changes the workout order, duration, intensity, etc. so that your body does not easily plateau in its improvement. Know that this is a great program, but you will only get excellent results if you are consistent in your workout AND your nutrition.

Monday Motivation – Aug 18th

Does life got you down at the moment?

Everyone has down days, down times.  The true test of who we are is what we do when we get knocked down.

Rocky Balboa  perhaps one of the most inspirational film characters of the 20th Century.  Everyone loves Rocky.  It’s an iconic series of films that have inspired millions of people.

One of the greatest speeches Rocky Balboa ever gave was from the 2006 movie of the same name:

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that! I’m always gonna love you, no matter what. No matter what happens. You’re my son and you’re my blood. You’re the best thing in my life. But until you start believing in yourself, you ain’t gonna have a life.”  – Rocky Balboa
