Show Notes

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.

#AskAchieve 30: Home Workouts, Box Squats, Keep it Professional with Your Clients, and Jason's Camera Gear!

What's up, Achievers?! Episode 30! We've got some tips for you today to cover what equipment you would need for a home gym as well as how to put together a home workout program (4:12). We also go over the pros and cons of Box Squatting - what the exercise is, who it's for, and if we recommend them to the general population (13:50). The next two questions are primarily personal trainer/fitness coach focused: We talk about how to develop a close relationship with your personal training clients and gym members without crossing that professional line (16:30). Lastly, we discuss our thoughts on camera gear and what should be prioritized in social media (21:06). My camera currently is a Canon 80D, Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 Lens, and a Rode VideoMic Pro. In the past, I have recommended a Canon Rebel T7i, Tokina 11-16mm lens, and a Rode VideoMic Go for newer users. For brand new people who just want a point and shoot the Canon G7x or the Sony RX100 Mark IV are incredible cameras in a compact setting. We hope this video helped you out!
