TRAINER HIGHLIGHT:

Dan Herman – BEFORE

Dan Herman – AFTER

We would like to introduce you to Dan Herman, a Certified Personal Trainer who started working for Impact Training back in February.  We immediately knew we liked his training style (very safe and effective, with a lot of thought put into each program design), and we also loved his amazingly upbeat attitude . . . ALL THE TIME.  What I didn’t know about Dan was that he has been on an incredible fitness journey, so I’d love to share his story (along with his amazing before and after photos – PICTURED ABOVE) with the hope that we inspire our readers.  I think having a trainer who experienced all the challenges Dan had with his weight is making him an even better trainer.  He doesn’t have to imagine what it feels like to wake up every day knowing he was not fulfilling his true purpose.  He can help you find the greatness in yourself – just like he did for himself.  Here are Dan’s words:  “When I reached my maximum [known] weight of 375 pounds back in the early 2000s, I experimented a great deal with activities to lose weight. In 2005, I did the unthinkable and purchased my first pair of running shoes. Through a lot of trial and error, I began to see and feel tangible results. Since then, I continue to be a dedicated runner with many 5Ks, 10Ks, half marathons, and even 4 marathons under my belt, all while maintaining an over 150 pound weight loss. Recently having left the corporate world, I am now applying my experiences to help others through their journeys as a certified personal trainer, running coach, and weight loss mentor.

NOW’S THE TIME TO GET YOUR TEENAGER ATHLETE ON OUR TRAINERS’ CALENDAR FOR ONE-ON-ONE SPORTS SPECIFIC TRAINING:  Whether you are a college athlete, high school athlete or even a middle-school athlete, training in the spring and summer for your sport of choice can pay off big time!  Maybe you have a teenage or college athlete who is already going to a local gym to work out with friends – or the weight room at school . . . But are they working hard enough? Are they using proper form when weight training to reduce injury?  We have helped numerous high school athletes to get stronger – and also to meet the requirements for varsity sports (i.e. varsity lacrosse requires the athlete be able to bench half their bodyweight).  Our Degreed/ Certified Personal Trainers will help you outline specific goals to help improve speed, agility, strength, quickness, flexibility, and most of all confidence.  During your first session we note your strengths and weaknesses so we can work to enhance your performance with each private session.  We always provide Sports Nutrition info for our new clients too, since that can have a major effect on their success.  We offer discount packages for one-on-one training or for partner training (so you can train with a friend or team mate and split the cost).  Over the last 6 years since we opened, we have also helped numerous high school athletes prepare for Division 1, 2 and 3 college sports – which also has requirements for each athlete.  If you are interested in getting onto our busy summer calendar, call us today to reserve your place.  Michael:  908-403-7605.

JULY GROUP TRAINING SCHEDULE (CLICK HERE):  Why is our Group Training different than a big box gym where you can take classes or work out on your own? You are ALWAYS led by a Certified or Degreed Personal Trainer – not just a fitness coach who was certified by the gym where they work.  Great trainers are hard to find . . . but we take our time and we choose high-level trainers who are ready to motivate you and guide you, every single session!  We are a training facility that offers personal training, multi-level bootcamps, elite athlete training, weight-training sessions, weight-loss programs, nutrition and more!  Please check out our schedule as we offer programs for adults, teens and kids.  Questions?  Give us a call:  (908) 428-7978!  #investinyou

RECIPE:  KALE, BLACK BEAN & AVOCADO BURRITO BOWL: A fresh burrito bowl with super flavorful components—lime marinated kale, seasoned black beans, brown rice and avocado salsa Verde. This recipe is both gluten free and vegan.  YOU CAN PRINT THE RECIPE BELOW INSTRUCTIONS . . .

INGREDIENTS:  Brown rice = 1 cup brown rice, rinsed (short grain/Arborio or long grain/basmati recommended) ¼ teaspoon salt Lime marinated kale: 1 bunch curly kale, ribs removed and chopped into small, bite-sized pieces with ¼ cup lime juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil, ½ jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped, ½ teaspoon cumin, ¼ teaspoon salt Avocado salsa Verde: 1 avocado, pitted and sliced into big chunks, ½ cup mild salsa Verde (any good green salsa will do), ½ cup fresh cilantro leaves (a few stems are ok), 2 tablespoons lime juice Seasoned black beans: 2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained (or 4 cups cooked black beans), 1 shallot, finely chopped (or ⅓ cup chopped red onion), 3 cloves garlic, pressed or minced, ¼ teaspoon chili powder, ¼ tsp. pepper (optional) Garnish with Cherry tomatoes, sliced into thin rounds Hot sauce (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS: Cook the rice: Bring a big pot of water to a boil, dump in rinsed brown rice and boil, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Turn off the heat, drain the rice and return it to the pot. Cover and let the rice steam in the pot for 10 minutes, then fluff the rice with a fork and season with ¼ teaspoon salt, or more to taste. Make the kale salad: Whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, chopped jalapeño, cumin and salt. Toss the chopped kale with the lime marinade in a mixing bowl. Make the avocado salsa Verde: In a food processor or blender, combine the avocado chunks, salsa Verde, cilantro and lime juice and blend well. Warm the beans: In a saucepan, warm 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-low heat. Sauté the shallot and garlic until fragrant, then add the beans, chili powder and cayenne pepper. Cook until the beans are warmed through and softened, stirring often, about 5 to 7 minutes. If the beans seem dry at any point, mix in a little splash of water. To serve, spoon generous portions of rice, beans and kale salad into a bowl along with a couple spoonfuls of avocado salsa Verde. Garnish with chopped cherry (CLICK HERE TO PRINT RECIPE)

FOR THOSE WHO ARE WONDERING ABOUT OUR “ZONE” TRAINING:  We want to help our clients SET and REACH their fitness goals.  For those who are interested in using the latest technology, our trainers are prepared to turn ALL of your workouts into ZONE Training – whether you are coming for personal training, bootcamps, strength training or Elite Athlete Training!  This will help you burn fat and build lean muscle so you are fit and energized!  This new Zone training method involves using a special heart-rate monitor (chest strap) that not only connects to your cell phone app, but the minute you walk into IMPACT Training, your device connects via Bluetooth – so your name appears in a box on our giant-screen TV.  With this technology, you can simply glance at the display to see the zone you are training in during your workout.  This cutting-edge technology is completely optional for our clients, but so far everyone seems to want IN!  This new system not only displays the percentage of your max heart rate during your entire workout, but it is color-coded so you can easily see whether you are in fat-burning mode or high intensity/conditioning mode.  This equipment is so helpful whether your goal is weight-loss –or building stamina/endurance for a fitness race or event.  Just speak to Michael at the front desk and he can order your strap – DO NOT ORDER ON-LINE, as we get them for our clients at a discount!  We literally get them for 50% off, and we want to pass that savings onto our clients.  Once you receive it, you register it on-line with all your personal data – and you will automatically be connected to our facility as soon as you walk in!  How cool is this?!!!
