Nobody wants to spend hours on the treadmill, literally getting nowhere. If you want to drop body fat, look leaner and feel unstoppable, you need a smarter workout
Dan Chapman is a Fatloss Coach, Motivator and creator of the Ignite programme, popular with celebrities like Kimberly Stewart, Sadie Frost and Celebrity Hair Stylist James Galvin.
Ignite is a three-week, one-to-one personal training programme that will help you lose weight, tighten and drop body fat. It’s also great for those who are already in good shape and want to take it to the next level. Think of Ignite as re-wiring of body and mind – a jolt to push you beyond that plateau.
‘Imagine no boring cardio, slogging away on the treadmill, no restrictive dieting weighing or measuring,’ says Dan. ‘Imagine being able to drop body fat and achieve a firmer, slimmer, leaner body from sensible eating and smart weight training. That’s Ignite.’
The Ignite programme is based on proven functional weight-training methods and tailor-made eating plans that will melt fat and sculpt muscle. Forget tedious cardio machines and unsustainable diets.
‘The results are an increased metabolism from the weight training and an increased excess post-exercise oxygen consumption,’ continues Dan. ‘In simple terms, EPOC means you will continue to burn fat for up to 24 hours post workout, and this is how you become a 24-hour fat-burning machine.
Ladies, lifting weights will not make you bulky
‘And don’t worry ladies, lifting weights will not make you bulky. You’ll find most of the female figures you aspire to be like lift weights to achieve their beautiful curves. When combined, lifting weights, smart eating and interval training result in a fantastic, shapely lean body. Long boring cardio sessions and dieting will eave you with soft body no tone with little shape.’
Model & Actress Kimberly Stewart, who undertook the Ignite programme, said: ‘The great thing about training with Dan was I would get a total body workout every session and he would keep every session different from the last, introducing new exercises and techniques to help challenge my body even further.’’
During week one of Ignite, Dan will ‘Remap Mind and Body’. This is where he hones in on and rewires your mindset, boosting your physical and mental drive, working on correct technique and practicing High Density Training methods. Expect an increase in energy and improved cardio output in the first week.
