My Favorite Resources

One of the best things for me on my fitness journey has been having the capability to research fitness tips and find workouts that I can take to the gym with me.  There is an overload of information out there, however, and finding legitimate websites isn’t always easy.  Below are some of my go to favorites.

1.  Weight Loss and Training is a great web page where you can find information for weight loss programs, workouts and training, healthy recipes, supplements and nutrition.  The page is “owned” by Sam Omidi.  He is very knowledgeable and he has created a great resource.  You can click on the workout movements to see a demonstration of how to complete it.  I think that is a very important element.

You can find it here:

You can also find the page on Facebook under:  Weight Loss and Training Tips

2.  Angry Trainer Fitness.  Alfonso Moretti is the trainer that is responsible for Angry Trainer Fitness. He reviews different fitness systems, gadgets and celebrity trainers while he gives you the straight dope on whether or not he thinks they are useful to the rest of us. Alfonso is not as “angry” as what may be perceived to be.  He is pleasant and enjoyable.  Seems like a regular guy even though he doesn’t look like it! Alfonso hosts a weekly Ustream video chat show that has become a part of my regular Tuesday night viewing routine.

Alfonso/AT is also on Facebook.  Find him under Angry Trainer Fitness.

3. Get Beyond Fit is the brainchild of Marco Reed.  I used to exercise with Marco on the now defunct Exercise TV.  He put out one of the first hardcore workouts on that channel with the Rock Hard Body workouts.  On his Get Beyond Fit webpage, I like his innovative workout videos.  I have incorporated some of them into my own gym routine.

Find Marco on Facebook at Get Beyond Fit.

4. Metabolic Effect is a stellar source of information.  It seems like they definitely “get” it when it comes to fitness of each individual.  They realize that it isn’t as easy as calories in and calories out and they explain a lot of the physiology behind it and also give some great workout demonstrations.  I incorporated the mini-chains into my workout where you string along a couple of workout moves instead of one stagnate move.  This fires the metabolism because you are moving and getting your heart rate up and building muscle at the same time.
