My name is Jeremy.
I’m the creator of Student’s Fitness and I help high school students, college students, and all kinds of busy people achieve a level of health and fitness they never thought was possible due to their jam-packed schedules.
I’m training to become a certified Personal Trainer (NASM) and have always had a passion for fitness and living a healthy lifestyle.
My healthy lifestyle was definitely put to the test when I first started college.
I found myself sitting literally all day either from lectures, tutorials, driving to school, or studying. I felt like I didn’t have time to cook healthy meals or even to go to the gym and I soon became so preoccupied with my grades that I let my health suffer. I became unhappy and constantly tired, adapted bad posture, and was repeatedly put under so much stress and anxiety during exam periods.
I was shocked by how little the education system helped support students to live a healthy and active lifestyle. I also noticed how students around me experienced the exact same thing too – they were once active and ate healthy foods but as soon as college started they couldn’t seem to find the time or effort to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
After seeing how my overall persona and physique changed (as well as others), I realized that I had to find a way to improve my health and fitness as that was such an important part of my life and it made me feel so much better.
I began thinking of and incorporating workouts and recipes that were short, simple yet effective. Once I started becoming more and more active and eating healthier meals I realized just how easy it was to maintain my healthy lifestyle while being a full-time student (I also had a part-time job as a personal trainer).
Not only was it easier than I expected, it made me feel great and actually improved my study habits and grades.
I felt so much more energized and my mind felt “awake” for once. I also realized just how much time I had that I totally didn’t think I had prior to the changes I made. I became stronger, healthier, and happier than I ever thought was possible at the time.
Student’s Fitness is here to show you exactly how you can make simple changes in your busy schedules yet see drastic results, and feel so much better.
This applies not only to students but to 9-5 workers, busy moms and anyone else who feels that they don’t have the time or effort to dedicate to a healthy lifestyle.
Now, with all the crazy info and gimmicks about what “healthy” is on the internet and TV it’s hard for people to know what to trust. I’m not here to tell you I’m a “know it all” fitness expert – because I’m not.
I’m a busy student just like all of you – pulling all-nighters, downing energy drinks, cramming for exams, procrastinating on Facebook and all the other fun stuff that school has to offer.
But I can help you achieve your fitness goals.
If you want to lose weight, I will get you there. If you want to gain muscle mass, I will get you there. If you want to improve your posture and mobility, I will get you there.
How you may ask? Well, let me outline the basic things you need to know.
Student’s Fitness Guide
Pay attention as I teach you the basic philosophy of Student’s Fitness in a nutshell.
Our main goal here is to simply be more active – and that can be doing whatever you enjoy the most! Obviously different activities/routines will provide different results, but if you’re not doing something that you enjoy then there’s no way you’re going to keep up with it consistently.
If your main goal is weight loss then there are so many different ways to burn calories that any and all methods are acceptable, so just pick whatever one you enjoy the most! Yoga, soccer, weight lifting, running, cycling, etc – I want you to help you find what you enjoy and help you get better at it.
Now, on the other hand, if you’re down for anything and want to burn the most calories in the quickest time possible (high intensity) I’d recommend looking into circuit or HIIT training. If you’re totally new to working out or haven’t exercised in a long time, then try out this beginner workout video.
Different activities will give you different results, but when it comes down to it you need to find something that you enjoy and will keep doing consistently!
The majority of positive physical and mental changes you will experience in your change of lifestyle will be a result of the changes you make in your diet. Now, diet is quite a complex and controversial topic but I’m going to keep it very simple for you. It all comes down to a few basic points:
- eat real, whole food (avoid fake and processed foods)
- eat in moderation and according to your goals (e.g. weight loss or muscle gain)
- eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
I don’t expect you to all of a sudden totally change your lifestyle and start working out everyday and changing your diet overnight. It’s all about progress. Make little changes daily towards a healthy lifestyle and slowly you’ll see how easy it is to adapt.
You may feel as though you have no time for a healthy lifestyle (I sure as hell thought I didn’t) but you’ll soon realize that if you stop wasting time on useless things then you’d have more time than you’d know what to do with!
Play on your phone a little less, get out of bed a little earlier, lounge around a little less, and you’ll see how much time you’ve actually been wasting. And if you think that it will impact your grades – it will, but for the better!
You’ll see how much more productive you are when you start becoming more active and eating better. Your brain and body functions so much better when its running on healthy, whole food and exercising daily.
Make slow changes daily and you’ll soon see the tremendous positive impact it will have on your life. You can use this Ultimate Guide to Staying Fit as a Student to start out.
I’d love for you to join our movement and be the best version that you can be!
