Justine’s 7 Week Bikini Body Challenge Results!

Please welcome today’s guest post by my friend, business partner, mentor – Justine Switalla. Justine is a leading fitness model, an author, speaker, entrepreneur and radio host and is also my co-host for the upcoming Fitness Model Secrets seminar. Today she shares with you the ‘behind the scenes’ on her own body transformation. 

Starting stats:  

Body Fat % = 14.50
Lean body mass = 48kg
Total body mass: 57kgs

I know that most of you reading this will start by thinking “why on earth would Justine need to set herself a goal to lose body fat”?. Well I will start by telling you that I am a normal girl who, like all of you out there, works dam hard to look the way I do. I am not genetically gifted like some and pride myself on my hard work and commitment to good nutrition to look the way I do. I am the 1st admit that I don’t have abs all year round, I do however, like to keep myself in great shape and not far off from photo shoot ready all of the time. I like to live more as a fitness ‘role’ model, someone who is passionate about overall health and well being.

Towards the end of last year I needed a break, mentally and physically

I decided to have 6 weeks off over Christmas to indulge and relax. I wanted to be able to enjoy time with my family in New Zealand and just let myself BE for a change.

Was it hard- yes, but was it worth it- YES, I came into 2012 fresh and ready to tackle what I knew was going to be a very successful and exciting year. You can see by the before pic’s that I was out of my ‘usual’ shape, still looking healthy but no where near where I needed to be for fitness shoots etc.

The 1st thing I needed to do was set myself a goal to get me back on track, so I booked in for a photo shoot with the very talented Nicole Miller one day before my 32nd birthday on Sat 25th Feb. I gave myself 7 weeks to get my bod back into what I call ‘bikini’ shape and to be feeling awesome by my birthday.

This was so exciting for me

Normally for shoots I have to look a certain way for jobs but this goal was all about ME and how I wanted my body to look.

So on Monday 9th January I started my depletion diet and hypertrophy training program that was calculated and designed by my amazing partner and coach Donny Henderson- Smith. He put me on a hypertrophy training program so I was lifting heavy 5 days a week, breaking up all my muscle groups, making sure I hit all of them well and also gave them adequate rest.

I went on a high protein/high fat diet and was allowed one treat meal per week. The biggest changes I made were I cut out ALL alcohol, dairy, Soy lattes and sugars. I actually didn’t find the diet that hard as I already ate a lot of the foods that were prescribed to me anyway. It was more about making sure I got the right amount of macronutrients into me at the right time, especially around my training, nutrient timing around training is crucial.

Donny wanted me to focus heavily on hypertrophy training so I could gain some lean mass rather than doing so much cardio. I am a group ex instructor and I love RPM and Body attack so during this time I had a break from teaching Body attack but I kept up my RPM as I couldn’t give them both up. High intensity cardio is great don’t get me wrong but in the scheme of things it can work against you when you are trying to put lean muscle on.

So here I am 7 weeks on and the results speak for themselves

I am so happy to be able to share this mini goal with you all. My main aim was to show you that it isn’t easy for any of us, we all have to work hard for it.

It takes determination, focus and commitment. You need to surround yourselves with those that only inspire and support you on your journey and kick the rest to curb because this is about YOU and your body.

Tell people about your goal so you are accountable and never for one second lose sight of that goal because the taste of success is so much sweeter than anything else you can imagine!

Stats on Sat 25th February:

Body Fat %= 6.71
Lean body mass= 52.24kg
Total body mass= 56kg

Results- Total BF lost in 7 weeks= 7.79%
Total lean muscle gained in 7 weeks = 4.2kg

If I can do it I know you can to, you just have to WANT it and BELIEVE:)

PS.

I’m excited to announce my Flow-Led Millionaire Private Client Mastermind Days are back, happening this August (PM me for full deets!) 

Warning! This Mastermind will require you to get TF over your hang-ups around:

* Automated income

* Being seen more, and more boldly

* Adding layers upon layers upon layers of more SELLING

* Ruthless repurposing and re-selling

* Structure, systems, process

* Building a cash machine which pays you on repeat regardless of whether YOU are grinding your fingers to the bone to get it working!

Requirements:

You have an existing business which makes money, delivers a fabulous product or service (or multiple of!) which helps people, you know who you are and who you’re here to serve (while always welcoming deeper clarity!), and you have a proven track record for getting results to those people … even if it’s on a scale, so far, which, frankly, you consider outrageous. Since you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world!

Oh, speaking of which – you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world! And you’re ready to put the wheels on that NOW, and see your revenue – your growth of soulmate audience – your soul-led result-gettin’ systems – and all in all your own badassery – explode, stat!

You’re not afraid of doing the damn work (duh),

but you also know that there’s a simpler way, a more flow way, a more YOU way.

And you’re ready to get down to the nitty gritty of that now, and then roll it out like the take no prisoners mofo you are.

All with me – secret counsel to the worlds most elite game-changers, leaders, and revolutionaries – supporting you to know exactly what to do,

and exactly how to do it,

so you make MORE money,

reach MORE (of the right people),

the YOU way,

having more fun and flow than you ever dreamed possible,

and finally knowing you’re all in on you,

Now!

What you get out of this time together is simple:

* Identified opportunities for money-makin’ – minimum 3, up to 10+ (this is normal in these conversations with me)

* Specific to you simple soulmate audience growth strategy, which you can roll out right away, and will often involve only ‘tweaks’ rather than having to DO anything dramatically extra

* Confidence and inner tools as well as practical steps for improving / adding to / setting up (depending where you’re at) your automated income / funnels 

* Personalised (to your personality / style / lifestyle / skillset) action plan for implementing

* Tweaks you can add in right away to increase sales on existing processes

* Daily / weekly ‘hustle flow plan’ individualised to you

All in all here’s what it comes down to:

>>> You will walk out with a complete action plan tailored to your business, very detailed and also very SIMPLE, with also a complete understanding of what you need to do and HOW to do it, to take you to the next major income level, and beyond.

This will include your next three offers (MINIMUM), up-sells, or funnel ad-ins, FULLY CREATED IN THE TIME TOGETHER!

Plus:

1:1 follow on support to help you implement and follow through.

I love doing this INTENSIVE deep dive work where we pull everything apart all at once, and then nail down the EXACT action steps for each person to take to get more paying customers and clients, who are soul-aligned, coming in NOW, who are also buying more things, because you’ve got all your damn shit in place!

This immersive day together is limited to 5-7 people per event.
