So what the heck is this all about?! Shift shop is a 3 week rapid rebuild program for anyone who wants to ramp up their fitness fast. It goes from basic 25 minute workouts to advanced 45 minute routines, all while dialing in nutrition for optimal results.

This is great for all fitness levels.  If you have a lot of weight to lose, shift shop will be your on-ramp to fitness.  If you have spent time away from your regular routine, Chris will lead you through a fitness tune-up. The workouts are 25-45 minutes a day, 6 days a week for 3 weeks and there is a modifier for every workout!

Here’s a peak at the program:

The nutrition plan uses the Portion Fix to measure out your food. Based on your current weight, you’ll match to a certain number of portions each day. What’s different is your food list – it changes throughout the 3 weeks of the program. You might be allowed certain foods in week 1 that you’ll no longer be allowed to eat in week 3. By week three, the plan eliminates grains and increases a bit in healthy fats and unlimited veggies!

Here are some transformations from the test group so far… how impressive are they?!

Monday Motivation

I used to FORCE myself to exercise and I hated every minute of it. I would count down minutes on the treadmill, put it off when I could, and always felt “punished” for having to work hard to lose weight.
.
Then I changed my MINDSET. I stopped working out for weight loss. I picked weights over the treadmill. I stopped worrying about the calories I was burning, and slowly but surely I stopped HATING it.
.
Now I workout because I LOVE it. I don’t feel like it’s something I’m forced to do but it’s something I CHOOSE to do. I feel better about myself when I workout. I get a mental stress release from moving. And it’s a means of finding pride in my body instead of hating it.

Change your mindset – change your REALITY!!

How to Push Up

Improve your PUSH UP!!!!
.
First one is what you want to do and how to modify!!!
.
Start with your hands directly under your shoulders and aim to only touch the CHEST to the ground!
.
The 3rd and 4th are what you want to avoid! Try not to let the hips raise above the chest, you want your body to be in one line. And also don’t “snake” your way up leading with the chest.

Some tips to build strength:
*Start Modified and try to keep good form. If the knee push is still a challenge you can start with a push up to a wall.

*Alternate days, don’t do push ups daily, give your body time to rest and recover

*Try adding in 3-4 sets of 8-10 reps after your workout a couple times a day.

 

Progress….

I don’t weigh myself and refuse to let a number on a scale dictate my progress.
I always insist my challengers take measurements and progress pictures and here’s why…
One week into my new meal plan and fitness program and I was feeling discouraged and a little fluffy….
Pictures proved me wrong. We’re always our own worst critics. Trust the process 💪
