#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!

#AskAchieve 89: What to Do If You Don't Have a Gym Membership, EMOMs and AMRAPs and Oly Lifting, and How to Approach Other Trainers Teaching "Incorrect" Form!

What's up, Achievers?! Hope y'all are doing well! I apologize in advance because we had some audio issues halfway through the episode. I think it's because of our washer/dryer that was operating, or it may have been some baby interference with Kendrick haha! Either way, there are a couple of choppy/static-y parts so bear with us please! In our first question, we talk about how to train if you don't have a membership and what equipment we would recommend (2:07). Then we cover how to incorporate olympic lifting (cleans and snatches) into your workouts and whether or not EMOM style workouts are appropriate (9:01). Finally, we go over how we would approach another trainer who we thought was teaching the "wrong" form for certain exercises. It was a question from a fellow trainer and we thought it was a great one to talk about! We hope you enjoyed this episode!
