Here are some pics from the last two years of Boot Camp Baby Fun!
Well, I did it! From January 1st through March 25th. That’s exactly 12 weeks of Tabata drills, and Paleo diet. It can be done. I started out at 12.8% body fat and ended up at 8%. I was 148.8 lbs. on January 1st and now I’m hovering at 140 lbs. This morning I was 139.8 lbs.
The first pics are today and following them are some I’ve taken over the last 3 months so you can see the progression.
Working one-on-one with an experienced, qualified, focused fitness professional is a life changing experience. You get undivided attention from someone whose primary purpose is your development and success. You will learn the reasons for every step you make. You will understand why some things work and why some don’t. You will be motivated and pushed beyond anything you could have previously imagined. Simply put: you will get results like never before.I am a certified fitness professional holding three certifications. American Council on Exercise (ACE), Aerobic and Fitness Association of America (AFAA), and Pilates Institute of America (PIA). I am an Army Veteran. I have spent my whole life learning about fitness and getting in better shape as I get older and more experienced. If you want to go from where you are now to a much better version of yourself and get in better shape and get younger as you age, then I have some insights to help you accomplish this goal.
Here we go! We’re at it again.
We’re moving out! We’re moving in!
Oh here we go, we’re at it again. We’re moving out, we’re moving in!
We are starting Boot Camp Baby again on May 5th and running through May 31st.
6:30 pm on Tuesday evenings and 12:00 noon on Sundays.
Sign up. Commit, and get fit.
I am happy to announce that I will be up early every Monday from now on teaching a basic Pilates mat class at 7:00 am at befitnyc. If you’ve always wanted to try Pilates, now is your chance. It’s a great way to start the week and the New Year. Let’s get fit together. Go to befitnyc.me for a full class schedule.
The world of fitness is full of misleading advice, broken promises and disappointment. Have you ever wondered why? The world of true fitness and the fitness industry are two very different things. Sounds confusing right? It is, it’s designed by the fitness industry to be that way. Now that they have you confused, they can sell you a product to fix you. Sounds great, right? Except it NEVER works. I said NEVER!. That’s right, it never works. You can’t get fit simply by using a product. All you will do is waste your money. I know first hand, I did it for years. I’ve done the dirty work so you don’t have to.
The only way to get in shape is to exercise regularly and eat in a healthy way. I am going to repeat that, but not here. I will repeat that to every client and everyone who asks me about getting in shape. Forever! The fitness industry and the supplement industry are just that. Industry. They are selling supplements. They are selling fitness. Remember back when I said you can’t get fit by using a product? Well unless the industry is selling you workouts, you won’t succeed buying their product. If on the other hand they are selling you workouts and instruction, motivation and expertise, then you might succeed.
Which brings me to my point. Spend your money on INSTRUCTION, MOTIVATION AND EXPERTISE! A good personal trainer can change your life! You might think I’m a bit biased being a personal trainer myself. So maybe I am. I have been training people for over 20 years. I know not all trainers are the same. And not every trainer will change your life for the better. Find one with many years of experience. Make sure they are certified and have CPR training and liability insurance. That is critical. Any trainer who doesn’t meet these few requirements, isn’t in business as a trainer. They are part of a fitness industry that is ripping you off.
If money issues keep you from working with a trainer, don’t give up. Negotiate. That’s right I said it, negotiate. A real fitness professional will want you to workout with him or her rather that turn you away because you can’t afford it. When it comes to getting fit and money, there will always be issues. Don’t get caught up in the supplement world thinking you can buy fitness there, you can’t. Do yourself a favor and take care of yourself. Spend you hard earned money on a personal trainer who truly wants you to get fit and stay fit for the rest of your life!
Fantone Fitness Fun Fitness Facts
What is it all about? I am Jim Fantone and I am here to sort it all out for you. I have spent most of my life experimenting with my body. Yes, I have done the footwork so you don’t have to. Cook, mechanic, restaurant manager, social worker, army sergeant, karate student, personal trainer, business owner. Did I forget anything? Oh yeah, father, husband (twice), and actor. My life as a guinea pig.
My evolution has been a fun journey, but I didn’t always think that. The one thing I know from my life experiences is “I make the best of everything”.
Fitness. This has got to be one of the most challenging aspects of life. We want to look like super models but it just doesn’t seem to work out that way (pun intended). Why is it so hard to have a six-pack? What is the elusive ingredient to losing weight? How do “they” do it? Well, if you’re reading this, maybe, you’re ready for the warm firm facts.
Fantone Fitness Fun Fitness Facts!
#1. “Your stomach is about the size of both of your hands held out in front of you cupped together like a bowl. It’s your body’s fuel tank. It is the right size for your body. In a car, if you overfill your gas tank, it will spill out on the ground, wasting the gas. In your body, the fuel doesn’t spill out. The body saves it as FAT!” Make sure you’re not over-filling your tank.
#2. If you want to get in shape, take some time every day to do something physically challenging. Every day! That could be going to the gym, going for a run, riding your bike, yoga, aerobic class, push-ups, walking lunges, jumping jacks, toss a frisbee, or chase your cat or dog around. The key is to do something “Every Day”. Yes, every day. You can play every day, it’s OK.
#3. People always ask me “how do you get a six-pak?” The truth is everyone has the six-pack muscles. They are already a part of every body. You couldn’t move properly without them. The problem isn’t in the muscle, it’s in the “stuff” that’s covering the muscle. You guessed it, “body-fat!” So the goal is to reduce body-fat between the skin and those lovely abs. How to do that? Ahh, the million dollar question. If I had a buck for every time…anyway.
Here’s my “plan”. That’s what I call it. Time to get back on the “Plan”
Eat clean. Eat real foods, not processed. Soda is processed, get used to drinking water. Just do it! Eat single ingredient foods like vegetables, fruit, lean meats, eggs or egg whites. Eat nuts and seeds in moderation (and if you can’t do moderation, leave the nuts alone). If you are vegetarian, you know where to get your protein. Eat foods as they come from nature, not scientifically engineered products. And do not add salt! You’ll get used to it. You know this stuff. You keep hearing it over and over, but you don’t want to believe it. Well, it’s true. Eat healthy and exercise at least moderately, and I guarantee you will lose body-fat. If you do, those lovely six-pak muscles will be working their way to the surface. Maybe slowly, but one day, Pow! There they are. You’ve got a six-pack. If I can do it, so can you.
Fantonefitness Fun Fitness Fact #4
Love handlesare from loving junk food. Crunches won’t affect them. Only a better diet will. Oh yeah, and some exercise to burn calories will help too. Keep it simple.
Have a plan of what you’ll eat today. Don’t wait until its a last minute decision and you end up eating “Fast Food”. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Eat healthy.

Action creates energy!
The best way to feel more energetic is to burn more energy. Sounds crazy but those of you who exercise regularly know that during times of consistent exercise you feel more energy. Try stopping for a week or two and you’ll feel a slower pace and less energy. Go back to your exercise routine and you’re back in the groove, feeling better in a matter of a couple of workouts.
So, if you’re feeling down for any reason and you want to get back to your old self, get back to the gym. Go for a run. Play Frisbee in the park. Anything that gets your butt off the chair and your feet on the move. You know it’s true. All you got to do is DO IT!
Every action has a reaction. Get yours.
Come and join the fun and get a good sweat on! Fantone Fitness can work out anywhere. We don’t need fancy equipment or machines. You are the ultimate machine. Boxing, kettlebells, Pilates or bootcamp. All done at home or outside in the park. Oh man, I am ready for summer! What are you waiting for? 917-657-5489 0r firstname.lastname@example.org.
