Throw Out Your New Year’s Resolutions
Daniel Remon B. HMSc.
Yes, it is that time again when most of you have decided to make some changes in life as part of your “New Years Resolutions”. These resolutions are normally related to our health. Stop smoking, start training, join a gym, get a personal trainer, lose weight, start eating healthier and so forth. According to a study conducted by GNC, 55% promised to eat healthier, 50% resolved to exercise more, and 38% wanted to lose weight.
Research shows that less than 20% actually stick to our new promises we make to ourselves, and for most, by February, we are back into the swing of old habits.
The internet is full of articles to help you overcome the same challenges you face every year. Resolutions themselves are the problem! So this year, I want to do something different.
Here we will offer you some inside tips to help you become that 20% and ensure your resolutions remain in tact and become achievements. Never again will you need to make these New Year resolutions.
From this point forward, they are known as your BSL. They are, or ‘were’ the Bull Sh** Lies that your previous self used to rely on for success. We all know, that these BSL’s quickly fade away by week 4 of the New Year. So, remember this; BSL’s are no longer an option. Non-existent. Nudda. Zilch. Zero.
Develop a Support System
Tell your friends and family about your goals and how you will achieve them. Better still, set some mutual goals with your friends and work together. Ask them to follow up with you on your progress from time to time to ensure you are on top of things. Join an awesome community of like minded, driven and ambitious people. This is the key to our success at Aspire, and this holds true for all areas of life. If you want to be successful in Business, surround yourself and learn from those who are already successful and form the image that you want to become. This is simple science at its best.
Visualise Your Desired Outcomes
Regardless of your goal, you must – and I will stress this point, you MUST visualise exactly what you want to achieve in life. Your ideal body, your ideal bank account balance and your ideal luxury vacation you’re going to take at the end of the year. Now the most important element in visualising is to attach the emotion and visualise how you ‘feel’ when you are your ideal shape in your dream destination on that dreamy beach. Just use the next 30 seconds to demonstrate how powerful this can be. Elite athletes and sports scientists have proven that visualisation techniques actually create neural impulses and responses to thinking and feeling successful performances. You are no different and can benefit from practicing the same techniques.
Rituals are different from habits. For me, habits are too commonly associated with ‘bad habits’ which we know are easy to break and it is too easy to fall back into ‘old habits’. Habits are actions we perform and practice daily, both good and bad. Habits are words that we are familiar with, we are comfortable using and comfortable falling back into. By ‘changing our language’ and using different words, such as ‘rituals’ we engage in new experiences, new mind sets and great results. Rituals are spiritual and engaging actions which link both the physical and mental components to habits. By engaging the emotional feelings and your neural system, you create behavioural change and a shift in your subconscious which connects to your desired outcomes. It is your subconscious which directly affects your outcomes.
Ask Specific Questions
Asking frequent, strategic questions about your feelings, your opinions, outlooks, outcomes and desires is also fundamental to changing your behaviours for the long run. You can ask questions related to all your daily activities, goals and objectives on every topic related to health, family, business, wealth and success. If you are tempted to indulge in something that you probably shouldn’t, ask yourself “is this food going to help me towards my ideal body?” If the answer is no, then your decision is easy; Just Put It Down! Other questions you can ask yourself include: What’s my outcome? What benefit will (this particular action) have on my desired goal? Is feeling (enter a negative emotion) going to help me? Am I doing everything I can to achieve my goal? What can I do NOW to be better and get to my goals faster? You get the idea. Make sure you implement and practise this every day, not just today and drop it next week. Formulate your rituals!
Fuel for Energy
Start to use a different vocabulary when it comes to eating nutritiously. I could go on with all the magic pills and crash diets that exist, from Atkins, Paleo, Asian, low carb, high carb, low fat to Mediterranean as well as all the detox strategies out there. At the end of the day, you MUST change your mindset and focus on eating healthy, natural wholesome foods. Focus on ‘fuel’ – simply supplying your body with the energy it needs to perform optimally. For the majority of people, we know diets don’t work. Changing your eating habits does not constitute dieting. Some other tips to help you fuel efficiently include: eating slowly, eat proteins and vegetables, fast occasionally, eat only when you are hungry, be flexible, prepare as much food at home as possible, plan your meals, eat out less and lastly, ENJOY eating healthy, nutritious foods.
Only Use Positive Language
As a results coach, personal trainer & wellness coach, this has to be one of my all time favourite, and most powerful rituals for both myself and for my clients. Eliminating negative language is such a powerful ritual to engage in. Words like ‘can’t’, ‘cannot’, ‘shouldn’t’, ‘won’t’, ‘try’, ‘maybe’, ‘should have’, ‘might’ and ‘but’ are no longer in use. This helps you focus on the more empowering language such as I MUST, I WILL, I CAN. These also trigger positive emotions which aids the success process. Using these empowering terms helps you to be specific with your decision making processes. Achieving absolute clarity in everything you set your mind to and everything you aspire to achieve in your life. Affirmations are also another powerfully effective tool. I have used affirmations very successfully with many clients and with myself.
Get Professional Assistance
Employ the services of a professional. Find a personal trainer or coach who can devise the most appropriate exercise and nutrition program for you – which you enjoy and can make a part of your lifestyle. They will help you stay on track and help you work through the tough times with strategies for every challenge. If you have worked with personal trainers in the past and had exciting results, for this year consider taking that to the next level and find a Success Coach. A success coach will help to tie in all your goals in life, inspire you and guide you towards the ultimate results and achievements that you could every dream possible.
No doubt you noticed a very distinct difference in the success of your goals. These are known to a rare few, and it is my objective to help as many people as possible, lose the BSL’s, get focused, take action and achieve their ultimate lifestyle through health, energy and success that can inspire others to achieve the same.

We are always looking for that low calorie snack that won’t kill our diet
or ruin our fat loss goals. Yet, there are so many options out there we
get confused and just don’t know what to choose.
First, what is a low calorie snack?
Second, how do I know how many calories a food has in it?
This report is broken down to 0-99 calories snacks/foods and 100-200
calories snacks/foods. The 0-99 foods you would choose if you just
needed a quick pick me to get to your next meal that is maybe 1 hour
away. The 100-200 calorie foods is where maybe you have 1-2 hours
before you can eat again and need something that will sustain you a
little longer and provide more satiety.
These are snacks that can be eaten between meals, as a late night snack
or just when you know you will need some food to get to your next full
The first category is 0-99 calories snacks and foods and it is broken up
into the food, the portion size for that food and the amount of calories
for that portion size.
The lists are also broken down into approved snacks (all the time) and
occasional snacks (sometimes). Approved snacks can be eaten at every
feeding opportunity regardless of when it is. The occasional snacks
should be eaten only once every other day. They are calorie controlled,
but you do have better choices if you want to lose fat, so don’t depend
on these occasional snacks as every day food items or something to
nibble on multiple times a day.
These foods fit into your diet because they provide protein and/or
fiber which will leave you feeling full. And as you know, that is a key
component for weight loss success.

Fitcorp Asia Opens the First Commercial Simulated Altitude Training Center in South East Asia at The Aspire Club.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Thailand Fitness Company, Fitcorp Asia Opens the First Commercial Simulated Altitude Training Center in South East Asia at The Aspire Club.
(Bangkok, December 1, 2011) Fitcorp Asia, Thailand’s leading personal training, fitness and sports performance company launches Asia’s first simulated Altitude training center at the Aspire Club in Bangkok. SAT, also known as Hypoxic training, where individuals train at simulated altitude environment at heights of 5000m above sea level forces the body to develop greater number of red blood cells to adapt to the lower levels of oxygen, improving the amount and delivery of oxygen to working muscles, improving the removal of waste products from energy production such as lactate, increasing fat loss, improving recovery and allowing individuals to work at higher intensities for longer with less fatigue.
Since the Mexico City Olympics, where speed and power athletes demolished world records and endurance athletes struggled, the sports performance world has spent millions in researching the benefit of training at Altitude.
In line with Fitcorp Asia’s commitment to improve results and sports performance of their clients, the opening of the SAT chamber is cutting edge to support the evolution of the industry. The chamber, at a cost of 5 million baht, was invented by the world’s leader in altitude training systems, ATS based in Brisbane Australia. ATS Thailand has introduced the systems to Thailand and plans to have 10 systems installed with leading sports industries and the Sports Authority of Thailand. IN addition to installations in Australia, ATS has systems installed
Majority of research conducted has primarily involved endurance athletes and the benefit include facilitation of fat loss, increased anaerobic threshold, faster recovery times, weight loss, and cardiac rehabilitation. Fitcorp Asia has created result driven programs to include small group training, weight management programs for the amateur athlete and fitness enthusiast as well as those looking to lose weight more effectively and prepare for trek to altitude.
“Simulated Altitude Training (SAT) has an undocumented track records of close to 100% of those heading to altitude to trek without any altitude sickness,” said Daniel Remon, founder and CEO of Fitcorp Asia and the Aspire Club.
“Aspire by Fitcorp Asia continue to revolutionize the Asian and Thai fitness industry, delivering high end result driven programs that enhance performance and introduce cutting edge concepts into the region. This is what Aspire is all about, achieve aspirations, redefining the industry and leading through innovation. This is what sets us apart and allows us the create the path for others to follow”.
We have already experienced outstanding success with altitude training, with athletes, weight management clients and trekkers in Thailand. This is an exciting arena to be a part of, where Fitcorp Asia is leading the industry in South East Asia for sports performance and cutting edge athletic development.

Interval training is an extremely effective training form to increase running tempo, increase cardiovascular output, despite this it’s most certainly one of the most neglected forms of training.
Most people just chose to stay in their comfort zone, run the same old casual run and is missing out on a lot by doing so. Provided interval training is well planned and structured, it can give great results fast, add a new dimension to your running performance in preparation for your next scheduled race or endurance event.
The major advantage of interval training is that you can maintain a high running speed over a longer period than you are capable of during a long slow distance (LSD) run. Put simply, interval training allows you to bump up the lactic acid threshold and teach your body to cope with running at a faster pace by breaking the total running distance in to shorter intervals with period of recovery in between.
The difficulty with any type of interval training is finding the right pace and distance. Experience shows that it is easier for an inexperienced runner to initially stick to the relatively short intervals repeated numerous times. The hardest part when determining intervals is finding the right running pace. There are basically three ways to measure and control the intensity:
• Measuring time at a known distance
• Appreciate the effort (using Borg’s scale for example)
…or to measure heart rate using a heart rate monitor.
At the Aspire Running Club will use measuring time at a known distance as the strategy to keep every aspiring runner on a structured program and to keep track of progress. Speed, recovery and duration will adjust gradually as performance is improved.
Interval training is an integral part for runners, endurance athletes, desk jockey’s and people across the demographics. The benefits of short bursts of high intensity work followed by recovery and then to be repeated has shown to be superior in not only cardiovascular performance (http://tinyurl.com/j5kbq)
but also to burn fat (http://tinyurl.com/6f49jly) and all other benefits that comes along with physical activity – not to mention how it can also save time!
Interval training is perceived by many as something daunting and too much hard work but can be extremely satisfying and engaging as it requires you to stay focused and tap in to energy systems your body might not have experienced in a while, kicking your endocrine response to another dimension!
The 8-week Aspire Running Club will guide, prepare, introduce and structure interval training (among other things) to assure you are in great running shape at the end of 2011 (weather it’s to prepare for a race or just to run and have fun in a group of like minded, inspiring people)!
The Aspire Running Club start on September 29th – taking place on Thursday’s at 6.30 pm at Queen Sirikit Park for 8-weeks.
Spots are limited – sign up today!

It’s simple…running is good for you, here are just a few of many reasons why:
* Good for your heart- strengthens your most important muscle in your body, the heart.
* Lose weight- like any exercises, running is a great way to lose those kilos. ACSM Journal’s article from 2006 by Dr. David Swain, concluded that running burn twice as many calories than walking.
* Muscular improvement- the muscles react positive from the very first run (Journal of Applied Physiology).
* Stronger bones- higher bone density.
* Improved balance- your improved balance will also help you in your daily life.
* Better posture- stronger, “prouder” posture and released stiffness in shoulders/neck.
* Psychological benefits- cardio exercise has proven to have positive effects on the brain, the released endorphins make you feel more alert and energetic. A study in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry states that staying active will decrease the probability of develop dementia.
* More fertile- research shows that running results in less impotence and higher sex drive (Queens University, Canada)
* Lasting Eyesight- slows down the inevitable process of weaker eyesight when you get older (Berkeley National Laboratory).
The benefits of running exceed the risks by far. Building up your running base progressively will drastically reduce the risk of getting injured. Prepare yourself with a structured running program including strength-, balance- and mobility exercises. Variety is good way to stay motivated. Thus, combine your runs with other types of exercise.
The Aspire Running Club will help you reach your goals and enjoy all the benefits that come with running.

The world’s second-largest athletic company unveiled its first “barefoot” training shoe Tuesday, which is designed to mimic the experience of exercising barefoot while providing the protection, traction and durability of a shoe. The Adipure Trainer, which is a cross between a glove for the feet and a traditional shoe, hits U.S. stores in November priced at $90.
The barefoot shoe is part of a strategy by Adidas, which is based in Germany, to expand into the U.S. where rival Nike dominates. Adidas joins a list of athletic makers trying to tap into the small but burgeoning U.S. market of fanatical runners and gym-goers who swear by shoes designed with as little material between the wearer and the ground as possible.
“People who believe barefoot is the way to go…are very emphatic about it,” said Matt Powell, an analyst with industry research organization SportsOneSource Group. “They want to spread the message. It sounds religious but some of them are evangelical about it.”
The athletic shoe and clothing business has been fairly resilient during the U.S. economic downturn, but it is an industry that thrives almost entirely on new products. When it comes to shoes, the latest and greatest captures the U.S. customer. While barefoot shoes make up a tiny fraction of the $22 billion U.S. athletic shoe industry, it is one of the fast-growing categories. Sales have more than doubled in the past year to roughly $750 million, according to SportsOneSource.
The barefoot shoe movement has been fueled by the barefoot running culture, which has long had proponents, but caught on more widely in 2009 after Christopher McDougall’s book “Born to Run” explored the history and benefits of it. The theory is that running barefoot enables the body to move naturally and optimally, while traditional shoes inhibit that.
The movement gained more traction last year when Harvard biologist and runner Daniel Lieberman published a paper in the journal Nature that concluded that running barefoot seems to be better for the feet, producing far less impact stress compared to those in traditional running shoes.
The practice of running in barefoot has been a somewhat controversial topic, though. The odd appearance of the shoes sometimes causes heads to turn in parks. Some races across the country will not allow people to run in them. And some barefoot shoe wearers themselves have reported injuries after using them.
Shoemakers and health professionals say many of the injuries are a result of people using the shoes too quickly. They suggest people trying to make the switch from traditional shoes to barefoot ones do so gradually —- increasing distance over time —- to let the body adjust to how it naturally is meant to move.
“A lot of engineering went into making your foot a high performance machine,” said Mark Verstegen, founder of Athletes’ Performance, a training and performance organization for elite athletes that works with Adidas. “Using your foot’s natural power and movement will help you strengthen muscles you never knew you had in your feet, lower legs and throughout your core.”
Athletic companies have rushed to jump on the growing barefoot trend. Big companies such as Merrell, Fila, Saucony, Asics and New Balance all are offering their own barefoot or so-called minimalist shoes.
Nike, the world’s biggest athletic company, has roughly 65 percent of the market and appeals to barefoot loyalists and mainstream exercise enthusiasts alike with the traditional running-shoe look of its “Free” line. Vibram has about 10 percent of the market with its Five-Finger shoe, which encases each toe separately and has come to define the style.
The design of the Adidas barefoot shoe strikes a balance between the two styles. The brightly-colored trainer, which features the trademark Adidas three stripes, covers the foot as a shoe would but with a sock-like fit and toe compartments to allow more natural movement.
“The Adipure Trainer is a unique piece of equipment for elite level athletes that we’re bringing to our core consumer,” said Patrik Nilsson, president of Adidas North America.
The growing barefoot market is an important one for Adidas as it tries to gain U.S. customers. The company runs a close race with Nike globally, but the gap is much wider in North America.
In their most recent fiscal years, Nike generated $7.58 billion in revenue in North America. Adidas, meanwhile, had roughly $4.05 billion in revenue when translated to U.S. dollars. Nike holds 48.2 percent of the market share in U.S., while Adidas comes in at a distant second with 11.7 percent.
Adidas, which recently has seen its sales improve in North America, has implemented a growth strategy that relies heavily on gaining market share in the U.S. The company said it is trying to connect better to U.S. consumers through new products and marketing.
The company, which has long relied on its strength as a soccer and lifestyle brand, has put a bigger push behind other sports that are big in the U.S. as well. In basketball, for example, it’s expanded its products in recent years and signed Chicago Bulls player Derek Rose, who was the NBA’s most valuable player this year.
“To be successful is damn hard work day in and day out,” said Herbert Hainer, CEO of Adidas speaking from the company’s U.S. headquarters in Portland. “It’s not just basketball or having Derek Rose or Tiger Woods, or whatever. It’s a lot of different things all the time and connecting right with the consumer.”

It’s been proven by numerous studies: your modern western diet is not up to scratch. Here is why.
Do you regurlarly eat white rice, pasta or white bread? If yes, then I’m afraid you’re not as healthy as you might think. For decades, soils have been washed and rinsed with pesticides, fungicides and growth agents. This thorough wash-out has turned soils into sterile lands, devoid of the all-important minerals that are critical to hundreds of chemical reactions in the body.
The salt we’re using has been stripped of most of its magnesium, leaving only sodium and iodine as active ingredients. The issue is, magnesium chloride is absolutely vital. Lacking magnesium in your diet can have disastrous consequences on your metabolism and spell doom on your life expectancy. This might sound a bit too alarming but for your reading thrills, I’ve compiled a laundry list of the effects a low magnesium diet can have on your health :
- muscle weakness
- back pain
- loss of appetite
- insuline resistance
- heart failure
- Do I need to go on?
According to the US Agricultural Research Service, more than 60% of the US population has a degree of magnesium deficiency. Ok we get it, we need magnesium, more of it especially in Bangkok where 99,9% of the dishes contain white rice. But where to find it?
Enter Nigari (bitter in japanese) : this crystal-like powder is pure, unadulterated sea salt that hasn’t undergone any kind of processing whatsoever. The Japanese have been using this salt for millenia; it’s an essential part of tofu preparation. In our case though, you don’t need to wolf down a pound of tofu to make sure your daily magnesium requirements are met. Don’t eat it, drink it.
Nigari has the virtue of being extremely cheap (about 30THB per pound) and is pretty easy to find as well. The only downside of Nigari is that even if you heavily dilute in water, it still tastes awful but I guarantee that the benefits for your health far outweigh its funky flavor. The recommended dosage is 20 grams of Nigari per 1,5 liter of water. You can easily store the preparation in the fridge and drink a regular glass every day, first thing in the morning. You could of course take magnesium in pill form but you’d miss out on the colon detoxification properties the drinkable version possesses.
Take your glass of Nigari every day for one to two weeks and just watch your body and mind literally metamorphose. This is no joke, the benefits of the magnesium contained in Nigari is well documented and you’ll find dozen of doctors and health experts ready to talk about it. Why ? For once, not because they make millions selling magnesium pills but merely because it works so well. The general population is not aware of it, partly because it’s difficult to add value to such a basic product, so major drug companies have given magnesium the cold shoulder. You shouldn’t.
Here are some of the benefits of the wunderbar mineral:
- enhanced metabolism
- fat loss
- improved mood
- improved energy and endurance
- improved gasto-instestinal function
- cancer prevention (look at the numbers, they speak for themselves)
