Residential Weight Loss Camp for Fitness and Nutrition
Even 500Lb morbidly obese men can workout at a residential weight loss camp.
Any way that they will!
My house is also known as Las Vegas Live-in Fitness residential weight loss bootcamp. I am Debra Stefan, your in-house trainer. I aim to find your motivational drivers to create workout adventures. The biggest compliment my clients can give me is when they say, “Wow, that was FUN and I got a great workout.”
First, you find the right activities and a reasonable conditioning level to begin progress. Then each workout session becomes a personal best. This promotes a positive experience that begins a craving for more of the same. It’s fun and it’s good for you. So why wouldn’t you want to continue this as a lifestyle?
Residential Weight Loss Camp Strategy
Exercise activity selection even for a morbidly obese 500Lb man begins with a reasonable assessment of what he is capable. Then a motivating and challenging progression is created with exercise variations and suitable modifications. This strategy applies to all clients seeking optimal results to avoid burnout. This method is most likely to be one to live with and not just a crash course.
For example, he enjoys boxing conditioning drills but cannot stand up for an entire workout. Lying on a wrestling mat serves as a great alternative posture for kicking and punching drills. Lying on stomach, back, or sides enables both arm and leg movements. Body bridges with arms down alongside the body allow back support and leverage for lifting body weight. Pelvic and abdominal core muscles are exercised without strain on joints.
Seen in the photo here are TWO fifty foot ropes both an inch and a half in diameter tethered on a ground anchor for a total body effort. This is an all-out explosive effort for a short metabolic burst in a fat-burning interval circuit. Also, as seen in the video below… plank pulls with the same two ropes in ONE hand! The core strength has definitely kicked in with week six.
So you just might wonder what can a morbidly obese person do at a fitness and weight loss camp? Okay, I hear ya. Since you’re already with me here, would you mind if I simply show you? Keep in mind; not every guest arrives at my live-in weight loss residence in the same condition.
Or the same frame of mind, for that matter.
First things first, an initial assessment is made when I demonstrate a few functional moves or “daily life skills.” Next, the client shows me what they can do. From there, we progress. Each session is based on multiple factors: sleep, fatigue, muscular soreness, and daily disposition. I continue to assess while I progress each person, using the motivational drivers known to me. A person’s drivers are unique, requiring discovery. For example, Solomon wanted to impress his teenage son with daily video clips of our adventures. The variety and creativity are what makes fitness fun. Then Solomon was proud to show his fitness trainers back home what he was capable of after his astounding comeback.
We aren’t training in a commercial gym. There are plenty of reasons for that. However, some of what we do can be done in a gym. Definitely, there won’t be machine training. The human body is the machine.
Finding recreational activities a client leans toward gives us specific training goals. Incorporating drills for those activities is motivating and builds confidence for new goals.
Whole-body movements–compound muscle movements and dynamic core balance, increase the ability to move through space against resistance.
Functional fitness exercise mimics daily life skills, everyday functions of work, and play. The industry definition of “fitness” is the physical ability to perform tasks of daily living with a reserve left over for play. But, of course, that’s all relative to individual goals and lifestyle choices.
I know that I’m not your typical fitness coach because I don’t consider what I do as “work.” When you find the kind of work you love, you never have to work another day in your life.
