Body Transformation Contest

Have you ever noticed those before-and-after photos from a hard-to-believe body transformation contest? Often you see these in magazine supplement ads, and those photos of ‘professional models’ taint the truth about what people can achieve in just 12 weeks, so please don’t be skeptical when you see real people getting results.

Furthermore, not everyone needs to train 4-6 hours per day like on those weight loss loser transformation shows. In fact, men and women have used short, burst Turbulence Training workouts to lose up to 33 pounds in 12 weeks. This is possible, and you’re about to discover how.

It all starts with 5 steps that are common among almost every body transformation, and even among personal non-fitness transformations. See if these apply to you. If they do, then you’ll be able to lose fat fast with metabolic resistance training workouts and bodyweight exercises so you can transform your body and your life – you might even get those 6 pack abs you’ve always desired.

The first step in a body transformation is “Planning and Preparation”.  One truth about fat loss that every success story understands is that diet is more important than exercise for fat loss – even more important than interval training.

Therefore, a common attribute among transformation contest winners is to set aside a few hours on the weekend to do weekly meal plan shopping and preparation. Whether you use Isabel De Los Rios’ Diet Solution Program or Brad Pilon’s Eat Stop Eat manual, you need a proven diet plan for your fat loss success.

Step two is to start “Building Habits”. You’ll need to take baby steps to improving every day. You want your nutrition to be better today than it was yesterday. Always aim for improvement, in both your diet and your metabolic resistance training workouts. If you attend bootcamp workouts, promise to give a little more each time and encourage those around you.

The third essential step in a transformation contest success story is “Right Thinking”. No matter what anyone says or does, YOU control how you react. You can get angry or you can choose to learn from the situation and react in a more productive manner. You are under your control. Your diet and workouts are under your control. Your consistency is under your control. Only you can do it. You are the master of your body transformation.

The next step is to “Measure Your Progress”. Record your workouts and nutrition each day. Take photos every 4 weeks to record your muscle building progress or your progression to six-pack abs. You need something to measure yourself against.

The fifth and final step is to “Never, EVER, give up”. Nothing completes a body transformation quite like this last step. After all, many success stories may have tried repeatedly to lose body fat in the past, but it doesn’t always happen the first time.

You may need a couple of attempts to get used to the metabolic resistance training style of workouts, or perhaps you need time to like interval training, but eventually you’ll get it and achieve your body transformation if you never, ever give up.

Earlier I mentioned the supplement ads contain professional models, and often they do. These are people who have repeatedly done before and after photos, and often enter bodybuilding contests. So I consider those types of body transformations to be cheating, done just for the camera.

But in the real world, in “average Joe” transformation contests around the world, online or in bootcamp workouts, you can trust that real people really are getting real results, and it comes down to following those 5 steps.

My favorite success story from the Turbulence Training body transformation contest comes from the winner of our second contest, Catherine Gordon. Not only did Catherine lose a realistic 14 pounds of fat in just 12 weeks, but she looks 14 years younger in her after photos.

That transformation contest was magical, and not surprisingly, Catherine is a spokesmodel for those 5 habits. She followed them to a ‘T’, and combined her dietary efforts with metabolic resistance training workouts and interval training to burn the fat and shape her muscle.

Catherine is living proof of what you can do with consistency to a simple, yet proven plan. But she’s not the only one who has won a TT transformation contest. Three times per year for the last 4 years we have had weight loss contests just like the one Catherine entered.
