A New Mom And A New Fitness Program

Congrats Lorna!

I’d like to send out a congratulations to Lorna (and Sonny!) on the birth of their first beautiful daughter: Illiana Kaleilani Velez 7.1lb 20″ born August 26, 2008.

Sonny and Lorna are such great people. I know they are going to make absolutely wonderful parents. I’m also confident that Illiana will be an active child with good eating habits. Lorna will become her child’s coach for many things. Every parent becomes a coach for their child. Lorna is very serious about taking care of herself. Don’t get me wrong, she definitely knows how to have a good time. She also understands the need for balance in life.

Illiana won’t be doing any squats for many, many years. However, I’m sure she will be coached towards learning to love movement, and exercise. An active lifestyle, and a balanced diet with whole nutritious foods is so important for our children. Sure, there will be the occasional pizza, or fast food stop, but most of the time it should be good wholesome foods served in reasonable portion sizes.

Where do you think our children learn their eating habits from?

In our training sessions, Lorna puts nothing less than 110% into every workout. She never missed a day in her food journal during her transformation, and she always listed everything she ate/drank down to the teaspoon.

You can see the result of Lorna’s effort + my personal training program in her Before & After picture located in My Clients section. If I remember correctly, it took about 10-12 weeks from the Before picture to the After. It might have been even less.

Lorna’s excited to start working out again, and maybe this time, I’ll see if she’d be willing to do a journal, or a video blog about her postpartum fitness training program. Please email me if you’d be interested in seeing something like that.
