I’m the founder of JillFit Physiques, creator of the #Moderation365 movement, and a certified personal trainer with a BS in Exercise Science and an MS in Clinical Nutrition.
Over my last 20 years in the fitness industry, I’ve done everything from compete in figure competitions, to run triathlons and half-marathons, to write hundreds of articles on fitness and nutrition for publications like Women’s Health, Prevention, OnFitness and others, as well as on my own site at JillFit.com, to personal train thousands of clients using the techniques included in #PhysiqueFinishers to get clients results in less time.
It’s possible to reach a point of diminishing returns with your exercise, so finding that sweet spot is critical. If you train intensely, and use rest strategically, you don’t need to be spending hours. If you preferentially choose weight-training based exercise over long, slow boring cardio, your body responds accordingly.
Over the last 20 years, I’ve worked with folks of all ages, fitness levels and goal sets, and some of the most common struggles I hear are around time, consistency, boredom and the all-or-nothing trap:
I totally get it! One of the biggest hindrances to getting results is the lack of time, and the idea that anything less than an hour of exercise doesn’t make a difference.
Over the last 3 years, I’ve enrolled over 20,000 people into my free workout consistency challenges, the #20x20Challenge and #MetconMonster, both of which include workouts that are 20 minutes or less! But they are intense.
And the feedback I ALWAYS get is: "I learned that I can get a great, effective workout in only 20 minuets, I love it!"
This is a mindset shift–away from the old mentality of needing to be in the gym for at least an hour or "it’s not worth it," to the new science of exercise, which dictates that intensity, not duration, is what drives results.
#PhysiqueFinishers was born out of the need for effective but SHORT fat-loss workouts that people can do in their living rooms (or gym) with no fancy equipment.
Once you start training like this, and do these kinds of workouts, you’ll NEVER go back to the old, slow, long, boring workouts.
I switched to these over 12 years ago, and I’ll never go back. And my physique is stronger and more defined now at 37 years old than it was at 23 years old.
And the longer the workout, the less intense it is going to be by default. We pace when we feel like we have to train for hours. Our body doesn’t respond as well, and we end up wasting a lot of time and mental energy on workouts that aren’t giving us the biggest bang for our time buck.
#PhysiqueFinishers contains 37 full-length metabolic conditioning workouts, all 10, 15 or 20 minutes long (including ten 5-min bonus “burnouts”), utilizing dumbbells and/or barbells. No fancy equipment needed. All workouts are broken up into 2 calendars so you know exactly what workouts to do on which days:
All workouts are comprised of both cardio and weights, designed to elicit what Metabolic Effect calls ‘The B’s and the H’s”: Breathlessness, Burning, Heavy and Heat (sweating).
The key with metabolic conditioning workouts is that they are great for ramping up fat loss, even though they are not designed for muscle gain. Beginners to strength training might experience a little strength and size improvement, but for most people, the #PhysiqueFinishers will elicit fat loss and definition in the muscle.
Every workout comes in clear and simple print-and-go PDF format, you can either bring to the gym with you, or bring up on your phone, as the membership is mobile-friendly.
Each 10, 15 and 20 minute #PhysiqueFinisher workout contains its own tutorial video, taking you quickly (each vid is about 1-2 minutes) through all the form cues on every exercise and offering defaults and regressions for those that are more high-inpact, like plyometrics, etc.
These workouts can be done by anyone, so long as you get skilled at listening to your body, moving with control, practicing the movements and using Rest-based Training to rest when you need to.
The videos will help make these workouts safe, and leave no guesswork for how to perform an exercise, even if you’ve never heard of it before. BUT, rest assured that I want this program to be as accessible and easy-to-follow as possible, so there are ZERO crazy movements or exercises that require a ton of skill and experience.
The vids will be accessible easily, as the membership portal is mobile-friendly so you’ll be able to bring up the videos on your phone at the gym, no problem.
It’s one thing to have access to a bunch of workouts, but if you don’t know what workout to do when, it can feel overwhelming. Most of my clients love a schedule to follow.
So in #PhysiqueFinishers, I’ve included two programming calendars for you. One is a standalone calendar of finishers, and the second is a suggestion for how to fit some finishers into your regularly-scheduled training sessions.
Lean-Only Track – 6-week focus exclusively on conditioning (fat loss), and includes 5-days-per-week workouts, for 6 weeks (30 total workouts, aka the #DirtyThirty). This track is pretty hardcore, but all workouts are… Read more…
