“But I’m Doing Everything Right” : What Happens to Our Metabolism the Other 23 Hours of the Day
by Ali Gilbert, CSCS

When it comes to fat loss, most people think of only two variables: Diet + Exercise. There is only variable we can control in the one hour we spend with someone in the gym- exercise.

Although we know calories matter, sometimes hormones matter more. What happens when someone's metabolic makeup is greatly affected by overtraining, under eating, and hormonal changes?

Ali will go over how to tackle everything that goes into the other 23 hours of someone's day that greatly affects not only their fat loss efforts, but quality of life
