“Smart Fitness”, what does it mean?

A crucial step before starting any training program is figuring out what your overall fitness goal is right now. So what is your fitness goal? Mine was to be healthier, lose weight (lose fat, actually….) and generally perform in better way. But be aware, because training for “better performance” has a weird side effect: YOU WILL LOOK GOOD, too!!!
Meaning, training for performance will lead to more muscle and less fat. And, training for looks will lead to increased strength and improved performance. So looks and health come together. As long as you choose the smart fitness routine…which is the training program that will work best for you, off course.
And there we have a lot of options to choose from. But do we, really?

As we all know, a fitness routine is a training plan and, if lucky, a diet plan.
So why don’t all work?
Why are people giving up after a couple of weeks or months… Because it’s not all about the exercises, diets and motivation. It’s what you do with those, it’s how you apply them. Actually, it is about the person who puts them together. It’s all about the author, our fitness trainer. Our fitness trainer must have the ability to keep us motivated when we exercise his routines.
So, you see, before even considering a fitness training routine, we need to consider choosing the right fitness trainer for us in order to achieve our goals and keep us motivated to do our exercises.
The first thing to look for in a fitness trainer is a certification regarding his being a professional fitness trainer.
Then we should consider another key factor, his experience. If he worked with numerous people with positive feedback, then this is the fitness trainer for us.
And the last key factor, but not the least: he must be a certified nutritionist.
If you find one who was all three qualities, you can be sure he has the best training routine ever.
And after a couple of month of reading fitness reviews and studying training strategies I was pretty sure I found the right guy.
He is a world-renowned CSCS expert (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist) and a nutritionist. He has fitness articles featured in publications like Men's Health, Men's Fitness, Fitness Hers, Muscle and Oxygen. He even has a background as an athlete's trainer for Canada's rugby team.
His name is Craig Ballantyne, the author of "Turbulence Training".
This guy provides a lot of clear strategies and ideas that everyone can use to transform their body the right way. And he does it because his training program is not a “one-size fits all” model, but rather an approach to properly identify your needs, plus specific tactics to get ahead quickly.
It works like charm if you are a beginner, as I was 13 months ago, or if you are an advanced fitness practitioner, as I am today.
It is just so easy. However, pay attention!
"Turbulence Training" may be the right fitness and diet program, but it will not happen over night! We cannot expect to hit the jackpot if we do not put a few nickels in the machine.
It took me about one year to be in the best shape of my life.
I began the "Turbulence Training" program 13 month ago and I am still doing it. At home, 50 minutes a day, three days per week.
Was it worth it? You should be the judge of that!
I am a 36 year old man. I am a full time single parent of a 7-year-old daughter. I have a very demanding job. And, according to my doctor, my biological age is now, no more then 27!  In addition, my ex-wife thinks I am super hot…
Well, what do you think about that? …No, not about the “ex-wife thing”…
At this very moment, I can live the life most people cannot, because I decided to do what most people do not: start a very smart fitness program.
            Therefore, if you want to start your way to a much happier and healthier lifestyle, I recommend you the fitness routine that changed my life: Craig Ballantyne’s “Turbulence Training”. But first, read my review so you can find out what is all about.
