Behrooz began working with top Atlanta Personal Trainer, Andy Keller, in December of 2012. Behrooz’s primary goals are fat loss and increased strength/cardiovascular endurance. Like many of us, Behrooz’s works an extremely intense work schedule, lives a social lifestyle and battles with a sensitive stomach due to in-tolerances to certain foods. Each of these factors can make it challenging for anyone to stick to a regular workout regimen and consistent balanced dietary intake. However, Behrooz was determined to not let any limiting factors keep him from reaching his fitness goals. He makes reaching his goals a priority! Behrooz maintains a strict workout routine, getting in five sessions a week with Andy. He also met bi-weekly (now monthly) with Mandy for nutritional guidance and support. Through his adherence to his workouts and nutritional suggestions, Behrooz lost 8.5 lbs in one month, while also gaining lean muscle mass. He also lost 2.25 inches in his waist and gained muscle in his arms and calves. In addition to reaching his weight loss goals, Behrooz continues to gain strength in the weight room and has improved his finish time in the completion of several 5k’s. He most recently joined in the longtime Atlanta 4th of July tradition and ran the Peachtree Road Race. Congratulations Behrooz and thank you for your determination and motivation to reaching your fitness goals!

If your goal is to lose weight (shed fat) and/or get lean, be sure to make the Tabata Protocol a part of your cardio program.  (20 seconds of effort followed by 10 seconds rest for a total of 8 sets).

The Tabata can be done with any exercise although some examples include:

Kettlebell swings




Squat jumps

Jumping jacks

Jump ropes

and the list goes on and on…

Also, even better than keeping track on your stopwatch is by downloading a FREE Tabata app for your smartphone which chimes you in and out of your 20/10 sets.  There are multiple out there and they all serve the same purpose.

Now go do some Tabating’ and watch how fast you start to shed the fat!
