The 12-Week Total Body Transformation: Fact or Fiction?

My clients, at the end of their 12 weeks, sometimes are ready to be displayed on the internet, but sometimes they are not. But no matter their current stage, if one of them wants their progress to be shown, then dammit, so be it. One of my clients just finishing up his 12 weeks with me was recently highlighted on the client transformation page.

After all, 40 out of those 52 weeks were spent either on his own or with another coach. When prospective clients send me an email, often times I have to set some realistic goals for them. Buy P90x, get on Nutrisystem. If you can make it the full 90 days, I promise you will lose 30 pounds. I thought his perspective could benefit others. His waistline has been reduced by a full 5 inches. My questions are bolded and his answers are italicized. I have underlined the portions that really struck a chord with me.

Congratulations on the phenomenal transformation. Your one-year pictures, especially, are remarkable. What initially caused you to decide to make a change in your life? The first thing I did was reach out to a buddy of mine from college who was a trainer for the Kansas City Royals baseball team. He gave me some initial guidance when it came to nutrition, but the main thing he did was provide support and hold me accountable.

He would text me everyday to see how my diet was going and give me advice. When you decided you needed to make a change, you chose heavy barbell lifting as the means to accomplish that. What made you decide to go this path? Did you try other methods?

If so, how did they work for you compared with heavy barbell lifting? I had zero weightlifting experience before last year and most of my workouts in the past had consisted of running and bodyweight exercises. So when I hired this trainer and we sat down to talk about my goal, I told him I wanted to lose weight and do Crossfit.

At first, we did all kinds of exercises just to get me moving and to build some base strength, while learning good technique for those main lifts.

At that time everyday was different, sometimes I would be doing tire flips and pushing sleds, other times would be Olympic lifts, and others would be pushing my limits with the major lifts.

At that point I dropped Crossfit idea, stopped Olympic lifting for the most part, and started lifting heavy on the main lifts. Both my weight loss and lifting progress started to increase pretty rapidly after I made this change. I still train the Olympic lifts occasionally, but it is more for fun and for a change of pace than anything.

My wife is convinced now too. She started lifting with me and has been amazed at the changes she is seeing. How important has your diet been in this process? Can you relate to us any alterations or difficulties you had this past year with your diet?

The logo used in the packaging and advertisement of Diet Pepsi has changed multiple times since its original iteration. In October , PepsiCo announced it would be redesigning its logo and re-branding many of its products, including Diet Pepsi. In the case of Diet Pepsi, the logo consisted of the small "smile". The Classic Sweetener Blend variety was distinguished by its use of the wordmark along with the "smile" logo, and a light blue label background in contrast to the modern formulation's silver label.

By mid, packages of Classic Sweetener Blend dropped the wordmark, and began using the modernized wordmark instead. With the restoration of aspartame as the main sweetener in the regular version, the alternate label was dropped. While it was initially advertised alongside Pepsi, Diet Pepsi began to be promoted independently in the late s.

The musical jingle from this ad generated popular culture appeal to the extent that it was eventually recorded and played on the radio, and later became a Top 40 hit. Since its inception, musicians, professional athletes, actors and actresses have been featured prominently in the promotion of Diet Pepsi. In , immediately following Super Bowl XIX , the game's respective quarterbacks, Joe Montana and Dan Marino , met in a hallway of what appeared to be a football stadium.

Montana of the winning team, buys Marino a Diet Pepsi, and Marino promises to buy the drink the next time. In the late s, Michael J. Fox appeared in commercials for Diet Pepsi, including a memorable commercial that featured him making a robot clone of himself.

In that commercial, Fox's girlfriend played by Lori Loughlin shows up and accidentally hits Fox with the door, causing him to fall down a chute into the basement. The girlfriend takes the robot clone on a date and leaves the real Fox trapped.

Cindy Crawford was also brought back in to introduce a new packaging design for Diet Pepsi, and again in to promote the revised slogan "Light, crisp, refreshing" with an ad which debuted during Super Bowl XXXIX.
