"Walter" Magazine

 About two months ago, I got a call from a young lady named Charman Driver. She introduced herself as a reporter for the “Walter” magazine and was asking me about MELT. She writes the fitness column for “Walter” and only about things after she had gained some personal experience. Well, we spoke, and I explained as well as I can what MELT is all about. MELT is one of those techniques that, while explainable, have to be experienced to ‘get it’. But Charman promised me to attend one of my classes.

GOAL!

My goal: a healthy lifestyle. It's not easy for me; the desire to workout with the intensity that makes the workout not as much fun as it feels like punishment, the avoidance of unhealthy foods that I love. But, as I try to find the balance; staying active enough and eating clean enough to boost my health inside my body and out. I am grateful for the choices I can make.

Is Body Weight Training as Effective as StrengthTraining with Weights?

I am a huge advocate of body weight training.  First of all, you don't need any equipment and secondly you are working many muscles simultaneously which is more functional and burns more calories. Personally, I do mostly body weight training for my upper body using the TRX Suspension Trainer and I feel I have a lot of muscle definition without being too bulky looking.  I also do pull ups for upper body weight training.
