Moving Away From A Weight Loss Mindset

What's up, Achievers?! In this episode, we discuss moving away from a weight loss mindset and shifting to more of a building strength/building muscle mindset. Lauren opens the show up with some of her personal story and struggles with body dysmorphia and then we transition to talking about the potential "cons" of having a weight loss mindset while discussing the "pros" of adopting more of a building strength mindset. This episode is quite free-flowing with a lot of different thoughts and tangents, but we wanted to make sure we touched on a wide variety of different adjacent topics. Lastly, we finish the show with some tangible action steps [20:57] you can take if you're more of a "structure" person! We hope you enjoyed this episode! If you did, we’d love you forever if you left a rating and review on iTunes - it seriously helps us out a lot! Please DM us @achievefitnessboston on Instagram if you have any questions you’d like us to answer. Until next time, sweat out; happiness in! Jason and Lauren P.S.

RPE and Why You Shouldn't Train to Failure

What's up, Achievers?! This episode is from a topic brought up by @shuqiiiella who wanted us to touch on understanding RPE and progressive overload as it pertains to a strength training program. Lauren and I dive deep on the merits of an RPE based system, why we recommend it for our members, and how it helps in the grand scheme of an overall program. We also touch on progressive overload and we believe in all the cliche's like "taking one step back to take two steps forward" and "trusting the process". If you strength train at all, this podcast will definitely be helpful in terms of how to set your ego aside and how to take a longer, more sustainable approach to your training!

#AskAchieve 139: Our Thoughts on the Peloton Ad and Where to Start if You Have a Weight Loss Goal!

What's up, Achievers?! We hope you've had a wonderful week thus far! We kick this episode off with our thoughts on the new Peloton ad and all of the outrage associated with it (0:40). We then go into a really big topic about weight loss. Where do you start? Does it make you bulky? Should you count macros? There's just so much more to weight loss than a single blanket answer which is why we rarely even address it on the show even though so many of the questions we receive revolve around it. We did our best to really give complete and thoughtful answers here but that also led to a lot of drawn out dialogue to make sure we really thoroughly covered our bases. The last thing we want to do is say anything that could potentially be damaging and we want to be as mindful of that as possible! We hope you'll stick with us here! (7:35). For more tangible weight loss tips you can check out episode 75! We don't have a Stories That'll Make Your Heart Sing Segment because we totally forgot! We do talk a little bit about our renovations and our rebrand though at the end! We hope you enjoyed this episode! If you did, we’d love you forever if you left a rating and review on iTunes - it seriously helps us out a lot! Please DM us @achievefitnessboston on Instagram if you have any questions you’d like us to answer. High fives and positive vibes! Jason and Lauren ...
