On my quest to identify the right solution for clients seeking weight loss, fitness and nutrition solutions I occasionally discover an excellent source that I can’t help but write about.

This article highlights one of those recent discoveries and it is about Empowered Fitness. I believe that empowerment is the only true path to ultimate success on your weight loss journey or when you are looking to develop the ideal body image. And as I learned more about the work of Adam Daredia, Chief Consultant, I developed a great respect for his approach and offering.

According to Adam, the biggest challenges that he sees in clients looking to improve are a lack of time and a lack of willpower.

When asked about how he helps his clients mitigate these challenges, Adam responds: “My approach is based on training the root system. By that I mean training the mindset. The body follows where the mind goes! I coach and educate my clients that weight loss and health/ fitness is connected to every aspect of their life. From their thoughts to desires to their daily lives.”

Adam is a former competitive martial artist / personal trainer and a fitness professional; he uses a combination of training methods comprised of:

· Martial Arts – which provides focus and energy

· Strength Training – which allows for toning and sculpting

· Advanced Core Training – to dig deep into the waist, and a

· Flexibility Program – to enhance posture.

His communication style with his clients is one of encouraging words to coach the mind while expressing the body.

Separate of his own program, he also recommends that clients consider a yoga class, interval training cardio programs and whatever else they love or enjoy doing.

He’s clearly a strong believer in making it fun. To me that is a rare find in someone so well trained in the martial arts. And frankly, that is what I find so exciting about his approach and offering; my experience with those who hail from martial arts is that they are too militant or demanding.

Granted, exercise and progress toward any fitness goal requires discipline and determination but who ever said that you have to take the fun out of it? Clearly, this is one fitness expert that gets results while helping his clients experience the joy of the journey.
