MUST READ! Celebrity Trainer Sidney Wilson’s tips to getting that “Lean & Vicious” body for the summer!
A few posts ago, I introduced you to my friend and Celebrity trainer Sidney Wilson. For the last few weeks, he has been training CBS anchor Erica Hill and getting her in the best shape of her life. Erica Hill is a gorgeous anchor and mother, but a little one-on-one session with training definitely doesn’t hurt enhance her physique. You can catch a glimpse of Sidney every Friday morning at 8 am for the next few weeks or visit him directly on his site Sidney Wilson.com.
Sidney is also featured in this month’s InTouch Magazine (page 14). He weighs in and rates a few celebs’ bodies like Courtney Cox and Leann Rimes, while suggesting improvements if needed like weight gain or increasing muscle tone.
A few weekends ago, I happened to make a quick pit stop in NYC for a little business and had the pleasure of fitting in a Power Hour Session with this amazing trainer!
After catching up on life and business, I pulled out my notepad and said let’s get started on my new “Get Lean & Vicious” plan! Summer is only months away, and my goal is to look and feel my best for me.
Realistically, I know I can do it on my own, but a little push from a new source may be the perfect prescription and answer to achieving my goal.
Even though I’m really knowledgeable on training and nutrition, it never hurts to hire another expert to help you rock and roll again! And after a few minutes into our meeting, I was pretty confident that Sidney Wilson was going to be that newfound inspiration to get me to where I want to go!
During our consultation, Sidney first went into asking about my diet, workout schedule and what my goal was. I told Sidney that I eat clean5-6 times per week but I do love my pizza and carbs on the weekend. I have been working out 5 times a week with a mix of both cardio and resistance training with one of my favorite friends and personal trainer Lisa .
Personally, having a workout partner forces me to show up every day and makes an intense workout a bit easier than if I did it alone. Plus, if Lisa sees me slacking a little and not putting enough effort into a workout, she totally calls me out on it and makes me owe her another one!
After listening, Sidney clapped his hands together and said “For the next month, we are going to shock your body!”
Sidney definitely recognized that I was hitting another plateau and I was due for another kick in the butt. Sidney customized a “Get Lean & Vicious” meal plan that he wanted me to follow for the next two months. He also gave me a mandatory calisthenics combination of workouts to do every day in addition to my workouts with Lisa.
So here’s what a sample day of my next month’s diet is going to look like! Please feel free to do it with me but remember that every body is different and may require a more customized diet.
I highly suggest reaching out to Sidney via email or facebook, or consulting with your physician or nutritionist.
