Podcast Episode 10: A conversation with Sally Matterson about success, fitness, and weight loss

Let’s welcome Sally Matterson, one of Sidney’s top body transformers and trainers.

Interview with Sally MattersonShe trains like I’ve never seen a woman train before. We’re going to have a bit of a chat on nutrition, training, and fat loss for busy moms.

There’s a real need for people to learn how to train smarter, not necessarily harder. We need someone who’s tried it all and know what’s working and what’s not.

There are a lot of women who are trying to get in shape after a baby. So, how do we fit it in with a baby and a busy life? It starts with what you can do before the baby. You need to get back to where you were, training, getting your heart rate up. You need to burn fat, but you also need to get stronger. Some people think that cardio is the secret. You want to have the nutritional side right. Getting it right means that you can train and strengthen your muscles. People who get nutrition don’t have to spend hours and hours doing cardio.

Most people have very high cortisol levels. It’s a stress hormone. Doing too much cardio elevates the cortisol even more. If you’re training well with weights, you can raise your heart rate and lower the cortisol at the same time. You don’t need to add in three cardio sessions too. For women who are used to training hard and sweating, you don’t need to do cardio to really get worn out in the gym. If you’re doing it right, you can use weights and get as tired as in a cardio session.

With your nutrition, you don’t need to be perfect. You can indulge one day a week and get a taste of the foods you really like. Maybe it’s something high-carb or something with more dairy, but you don’t have to eliminate it all together from your diet. Generally, I recommend that this be at night. I’ve found that if people start their day with a “cheat meal,” it tends to go into the next one and the next. This isn’t forever. You can do it for six weeks to get your body to reset and then add back in what you’ve eliminated slowly. You don’t have to count calories or weigh food. For the most part, I’m a big fan of adding in more protein. I don’t think that most women (or even some men), eat enough.

So, I give people a protein target and that along with good carbohydrates and good fats, that’s where I come from. As long as you hit your protein target, you’ll find that you naturally eat less of the carbohydrates and fats. As long as you get your protein in, the rest will take care of itself.

If there’s one thing that people need to know is that training your legs will burn a lot of fat. Never skip leg day. If you train your legs, with compound exercises, you’ll naturally get fitter. Posture and everything return back to your leg muscles. You need to train the rest of your body to keep in proportion, too, but legs are very important.

Dealing with lack of motivation is hard for a lot of women. To do that, you need to find a greater purpose to your training. When you’re lean, you feel better about yourself. Once you’re done with your training, you’ll be a better wife, sister, or mother. That’s a higher purpose. Finding your real why isn’t just about you being in shape, but it’s about providing tools for the greater good.

It doesn’t matter how much you know. It’s great to jump in and do something structured that someone else has created. It’s great to do something that you don’t have to think about. Sally’s
program is one that I highly recommend. You keep moving; you don’t have to stop and think about it. If you love training and are willing to work hard, this is the program for you.

Tell everyone you’re doing it to keep you accountable. It’s great to be strong and be able to have control of what you’re eating and doing. I love being strong as a female. It helps you feel a lot better about yourself.

#KATFESSSION, eeeeekkkkkk

Sooooo …

I kinda sorta did something REALLY not ideal! I made a mistake 😞

I then found about that mistake a day or so ago, when one of my amazing clients let me know!

I then fixed it of course, but since then something has been nigglin’ away at me telling me that maybe the mistake was a SIGN and a DIRECTION and I shoulda fixed it the other way!!

What am I talking about? My Easter Extravaganza Instant Manifestation Bundle, which is supposed to close TODAY in just a few hours, and contains 4 of my BEST money and manifestation courses, over 85% off!

As we do, we threw this thing together last minute like usual (aka KAT style) – and somehow managed to put THE WRONG PRICE on the sales page!!! ‍♀️

– Correct price on order form, when you actually click the buttons.

– Incorrect price on sales page. Doh.

The one on the SALES page was lower, about 25-30% lower than the already reduced 85% off! I think what happened is we copy and pasted off an old previous bundle sales page and so the old price just carried over.

Anyway, a few people pointed it out and obviously we honoured the mistaken lower price while fixing the page for future peeps.

BUTTT … I just felt ugh about it, y’know? Even though the lower price was a mistake! And even though the actual price was literally already 85% off for this offer!

It wouldn’t stop bugging me.

So, long story short, I’m changing it!

My Easter Extravaganza Bundle is now over NINETY PERCENT reduced … for anyone who already bought and paid full we will honour the lower price for you as well of course (watch out for an email later today!) and for everyone who has NOT yet, the price has now been adjusted on the sales page, DOWN!

And, because of the muck around and confusion, I’m extending my bundle sale for one more day into Easter Tuesday 🐣

Yep,

Jump on now and grab four of my best Money and Manifestation courses now at 90% off, next 24 hours ONLY!!! 💥
