The Alive protocol is so effective and yields such great results for one reason, it presents the participant with such a wealth of information that one cannot help but become a health aficionado after completion of the program. The way the information is given to the participants assures optimal grasp of the material by starting off with dispensing of the nonsense that has been taught to the general public for years. I have seen firsthand participants go from completely unsure of what to eat or how to exercise to individuals who are confident going grocery shopping and even more confident in the gym, finally moving away from the 45 minutes of cardio and 20 minutes of arm curls and sit ups that they did 2 maybe 3 days a week at the gym. It got to the point where I would completely shut up, allow them to take themselves through the session and just follow my clients around making very small adjustments and basically being their own personal cheerleader. If you want to finally learn how to properly eat without fad dieting or worse starving yourself as well as learn how to use much more than just the elliptical at the gym give the ALIVE protocol a try.

My ALIVE client had exercise experience being a former high school/collegiate athlete, but many parts of his body were on a program of their own! He wanted to decrease the aches and pains he had developed from his past and continue to stay active as much as possible. The low intensity workout in his regular visits to the gym and less than healthy eating habits were not benefiting him, so he signed up for the ALIVE program. I was excited to work with him in the ALIVE program because many of the exercises were ones I use with my clients so they were familiar to me. I had concerns about how he would do working out on his own, and deal with the change in eating habits. To make the weekly exercise progressions smoother, he used a weekly cheat sheet we put together from the information in the program. I have been totally impressed how hard he has worked on all of the exercises -even when I wasn't there! (We did modify any exercises that may have caused him problems w/ past injuries.) The eating has been a tougher challenge, although he has changed more to the supportive eating and does love the cheat day. The supportive eating is real food and easy to put meals together. The program seems too easy at first, and then it gets more challenging as the client learns to figure some of the fitness stuff on their own, and then it is do-able. After two weeks on the program, he saw a loss of 6 lbs! After six weeks, 17 lbs down and definitely feeling stronger! Less aches and pains! I would say he is on a better path to fitness for him! It's so exciting to see the program work so well! I'm looking forward to seeing how he does in his last two weeks and comparing the final numbers against the beginning numbers! But I can already see the difference and so can others! He's ready for round 2 and I'll be there pushing and cheering him on! GO!!!GO!!!GO!!! COME ON!!! YOU CAN DO IT!! KEEP GOING!!--sometimes he calls this harassment or torture (it's "training!") :-) Guess you would have to experience the ALIVE program and the results from it to understand.
