"I started the Body Jakeover initially to lose a few pounds before my birthday. I could see results within just two weeks! My clothes fit better and I was able to fit clothes I hadn't worn since college. People were noticing my new figure and that was exciting. It gave me a new confidence."

~ Tuera C.

"After a month of the Body Jakeover workouts on my butt and thighs, I have to say I am impressed with my results. My butt is TIGHT and my thighs are RIGHT! Thanks Jake!"

~ Janice M.

"In the course of a month and a half, I lost a whole pant size by following Jake's nutritional guidelines. Usually, I would go on crash diets and then just gain the weight back, but this is definitely a lifestyle change and not a crash diet. Thanks for all your help Jake!"

~ Rose K.

Versace Doesn't Make Birthday Suits

So you're thin, you run on the treadmill 3,4,5 times a week, AND you're eating right, yet you still aren't getting the magazine cover results that you want? Girls, sure you can fit into size 2 jeans, and guys, sure you can wear the slim fit suits....but when the clothes come off, the show's over. I mean, have you ever really examined the body of someone who JUST runs excessively for exercise? They kind of look like they just escaped from a refugee camp. When it comes to my clients, rocking the slim fit suit is NOT enough...they have to be able to rock the birthday suit too. So what's the deal?

Well, the deal is, while cardio is great, and I'm NOT knocking cardio, it is only ONE aspect of sexy, and it can only get you so far. You see, when you run on a treadmill for an hour, you may burn 500+ calories. But, when you step off the treadmill, you're done burning calories. So, when you go home and park your ass on the couch to watch Jersey Shore, your ass is NOT burning calories anymore. Meanwhile, while I'm sitting on my couch watching Jersey Shore, I'm actually burning calories. How?! No, I am not fist pumping in my living room. The reason I'm burning calories by doing practically nothing is because the muscle raises my metabolism, and basically burns the calories for me.

Explanation - Scientifically speaking, muscle cells have twice the metabolic activity of fat cells. Think of it this way...A Honda Civic can go much, much further on a tank of gas than a Ferrari, right? This is because the Ferrari has a bigger engine and more "muscle", so it burns way more fuel, aka, "calories". Now what would you rather drive? A Ferrari or a Civic? Unless you're a 14 year old asian kid, you probably said Ferrari.

Solution - Build LEAN muscle! No need to get jacked, just lean, tone muscle. How? Core strengthening, resistance training, weight lifting, boxing/kickboxing, pilates, etc. Switch it up! Because a skinny body looks good in jeans, but a lean, muscular body looks good NAKED! And if you're lousy in the sack like I am, hey, at least you look good.
