According to Simmons, FitBodiez is really a mindset centered around determination and stick-to-itiveness, which underscores their commitment to overcoming obstacles that prevent people from being healthy and enjoying life.
“Our objective is to help ordinary people reach a new level of fitness. If you’ve never worked out before, we want to get you up and moving. If you are a former athlete, we want to help you get back to your glory days. FitBodiez isn’t about achieving perfection; it is about becoming the best version of yourself imaginable.”
And speaking of the best, Mr. Simmons recalls a piece of sage advice he got from bikini champ, Nathalia Melo.
“When I was prepping for my first fitness competition years ago, Nathalia recommended that I get a nutrition coach. She explained that most competitors can’t objectively view their physique and can benefit from having a coach provide that objective insight. My first season in the National Physique Committee (NPC) was less than successful, but years two and three were incredible thanks to the various coaches I hired.”
As a certified personal trainer, Regie says he is always on top of what’s happening in his industry.
“I should also mention that I pick-up health advice daily from various websites, clinical trials and peers. I always have my ears open for proven fitness-related tips, he says.” The IFBB Pro also adds there are a few ‘fitness trends’ he wishes would go away.
“Waist trainers. Firming wraps. Slimming gels. I could go on and on but I think you get the point. All of these “quick fix” products are designed to get your money. Period. None of these things are clinically proven to improve your health and wellness,” he says. “I think people need to stop looking for secrets and shortcuts because there aren’t any.”
The fitness expert says if you want to lose weight or get into shape all you need to do is watch what you put in your mouth and get active. The basics of reduced caloric intake and increase exercise is the magic formula for losing weight—it’s not a $60 waist trainer or a weekly seaweed wrap.
