Hey Fans!

Hope you’re enjoying FTD so far! Our latest webisode – the “V Force” weight vest workout – was definitely one of my favorite shoots as well as one of my favorite pieces of equipment. As a fitness enthusiast, I’m always looking to add to or change up, my workout routine and the V Force weight vest accomplishes that goal.

What I like about this particular weight vest is the convenience it provides to the beginner as well as the expert gymrat. You can change up the amount of weight you want to carry with no hassle. There’s breathable fabric on the inside that pulls sweat away from your body and lastly, you can add the vest to almost any workout and take your resistance training to a whole new level!

During the shoot, David insisted he keep all the weight on his vest the entire time (he was wearing a 40 lb. vest). I don’t know how he made it through but he did. However, I do remember him walking around gingerly for the next couple of days. Even for the most fit, adding the weight vest to a workout can dramatically increase resistance and shock the muscles in a way that positively enhances muscle growth and endurance. Regardless if you’re running, doing pilates, boxing, doing yoga, or playing basketball, the V Force weight vest is guaranteed to kick your butt! For the beginner, it’ll strengthen your core and build muscles you didn’t even know you have. And for the expert, it’s just the change of pace your body was waiting for!

Big thanks to Jeff Egbert and the team over at Weightvest.com, Inc. who let us Fit Test Dummy their product and if YOU want the V Force vest, go to www.weightvest.com.

Until next time Dummies,

Want to be REAL fit?

Not FAKE fit – no ridiculous impossible expectations requiring hours in the gym and impossible to maintain meal plans. People ask me all the time what my routine is – they think I’m going to tell them I’m a professional trainer spending hours in the gym and eating very specialized food or eating like a bird.

The truth is, I haven’t been to the gym in two years, I never workout more than 90 minutes a day, and most of the time I’m eating fast food for lunch.

What’s the key then? I make myself a priority – my second appointment every day is a workout DVD in my home gym (the patio). I use supplements judiciously. I eat real food for dinner (I’m blessed to have an amazingly fit wife who has taught herself to cook gourmet healthy food).

And I run a company producing branded content for The Biggest Loser TV show, opening The Biggest Loser Resorts around the country, finding sponsors for The Miss Universe Organization, and now producing original content to help all of you reach your fitness goals. Yes I’m a fitness dork – and I’m proud of it.

More tomorrow on fast food secrets and my favorite protein supplement.
