JAMWORKOUT allows you to set goals and personalize your workouts. Right now, let’s set some expectations.
The first is- this may feel awkward in the beginning. In fact, it will likely take 3 times before you really settle in.
Being fit should never equate to being a certain weight.
Getting stronger, faster, leaner, gaining endurance- all of these together =Fitness. So why limit your measure to only the scale?
1- Enable Bluetooth on your phone
2- Put on your heart rate monitor. It should be touching your skin. If you have an armband monitor, be sure to turn it on.
3- In the app, “Workout Now” – Cardio Only.
1- Ready to cast?
2- Heart rate monitor paired with phone?
3-Print schedule and know the milestones- what, how, and why?
4- In the App, Workout Now, Cardio Only-Other “Milestones”
Stop consuming calories after dinner. It IS that simple. Combined with the extra calories you burn, those skipped (and typically empty) calories will help you see results quicker.
Choose your location-(home, gym)
Settings- preferences- interval 10 min
Workout Now- Play
Watch both videos- 2 sets 10 reps
Finish and hit next.
Log your weight on Friday. In the app- track in hamburger menu- My Account- Assessments.
Check your weight again Monday to see what the weekend did to sabotage your results. No need to log this one.
Everyone has their own rhythm and listening to an over-caffeinated cheerleader saying the same thing over and over gets tedious. We designed our app without sound so that you can play the music that inspires YOU to MOVE (Use Alexa, Echo or an old fashioned stereo). So crank up your tunes and Let’s JAM!!
The challenge that most people have when attempting a new diet is that it does not match their culture, lifestyle or taste. This is why we believe, first you determine how many calories you eat, then you make small changes to create results.
Don’t be afraid to return to previous milestones after you have moved up. You will see your results skyrocket.
Don’t neglect your sleep- it is critical to continued healthy weight loss. Here are some tips.
The issue we see most often is my heart rate monitor is not working. Primary cause- battery. Watch this video to see the proper wear and care of your hrm.
Occasionally, you may see info that does not seem right- maybe you burned much more or less than you thought. Make sure that your profile stats like weight, height, and age are correct. Review your workout summary to see your zones and the number of active minutes. Remember active calories will count differently.
80-90% of your results will be determined by your nutrition and calorie intake.
It can be shocking. Do you know how many you eat every day?
Find out by using a tracking app like MyFitnessPal.
JAMWORKOUT is scalable so that when you add equipment, your workouts can grow with you. Start with bodyweight and a set of dumbbells, but when you get new fitness stuff, only a few clicks adds exercises to your library.
So many of us start so inspired to make a change but around day 12, we determine it is too tough and we are done. Make this time the last time. By making changes slowly, focusing on milestones, and tackling one hurdle at a time, you CAN reach your goals.
Maybe you have a fancy scale or a handheld device, but if you don’t, you can get your bodyfat at home, the way the Navy does- with only a tape measure and an online calculator.
Small changes, better choices. There is no need to jump headlong into a restrictive diet.
Step 1 Know what you eat
Step 2 Make smart substitutions.
Step 3 Keep dialing in with macros
Paleo, vegan, carnivore, green whatever diet fad has your attention, we will break down the pros, the cons and the results.
Every minute of your life, you are burning calories. That is your basal metabolic rate- the energy needed to survive. But the change comes outside of BMR- when you are working at an activity that speeds up your metabolism and burns more calories- Active Calories.
Set interval Preferences to 10 minutes. The default is 2 sets of 10 reps.
Rest as needed. Done early? Fast forward and move on.
Even elite athletes use coaches for technique, plans and advice. With JAMWORKOUT you can too.
Choose 3 or 4 coaching sessions to help you accomplish your personal fitness goals.
It is not about pass or fail, it is about seeing what you KNOW. Give it a try. You might surprise yourself.
