Episode #26: The F.I.T. Principle

If you’ve exercised diligently only to be left feeling dissatisfied with your results, you’re not alone. All exercise programs are not right for every person. On this special “between seasons” episode of TARA MARIE LIVE, I teach specific variables you can manipulate to design the perfect exercise program for you. F.I.T. stands for frequency, intensity, and time. Understanding how to make changes in your workouts using these and other variables, you can tailor both your cardiovascular and strength training to meet your needs. Learning which variables to manipulate and how to do so will help you use your time efficiently and reach your goals. Join me for game-changing information!

In order to compete as a Natural Figure Competitor, one must be consumed with the preparation. The process is long, detailed, and often grueling. Even a minor distraction in life can be enough to pull you off track.
