The super secret ingredient to fat loss

*************************** Follow A Plan ****************************

D you want to lose weight?
Do you want to reverse medical problems (yes, it’s possible)?
Do you want to have more energy?
Do you want you feel confident and attractive?

These are all within your grasp. Without a doubt, we 100% believe that every single person can achieve these goals.

We’ve helped hundreds of people over the last 3 years do these exact things. 
Moms repping out pull ups WITH extra weight.

Schoolteachers losing 10, 15, 20, 25 lbs and looking better than ever.

Stressed out workaholics get more energy to tackle their busy days and STILL have gas in the tank for the family.
But...we also have had many people come through the gym who never quite made it. There’s a handful of reasons but we want to discuss one in particular that is so SIMPLE to destroy.

Sticking to a plan.

That’s it. Whether that’s a plan you find online, with your friend, or a plan laid out by strength & conditioning coach (that’s us wink emoticon.

Sticking to a plan has two components:

1. Do EVERYTHING the coach or plan requires of you. It doesn't work if YOU don’t work.
2. Keep doing it. Do NOT take month long breaks, skip weeks, or get down because you missed a day. Get right back into it asap.

If you can do that and the plan is even half decent, you WILL get fantastic results.

What we do at San Jose Barbell is nothing special. We eliminate all of the extra nonsense and fluff and misleading BS that surrounds health and fitness. Then we lay out a plan. We do our best to follow up with you, hold you accountable, and give you support.

But at the end of the have to make your own bed. Only you can decide if you are going to DO THE WORK. There are no magic pills.

There will be points where you may plateau or even go backwards...but have faith. It takes time. And it takes patience.

Stick with it.

Think about this: how much time did it take you to reach your current level of unhealthiness or weight?

It certainly didn’t just happen over a weekend. Or two weekends. Or even 2 months.

Where you are now is an accumulation of your decisions and habits over the last year, 2 years, 3, years, 10 years, 20 years.

It took a LONG time to get to this point.

It’s very unreasonable of you to expect that it will all get reversed in 6 weeks. Or even 6 months. Or even a year.

This isn’t to say you won’t make TREMENDOUS progress in the short term. You will.

Your body is amazing. It adapts to new stimulus rapidly.

But please don’t be the person who decides that they need to switch up the plan and make their own modifications to it before you’ve given it a fair shake. And don't be unhappy with the rate of your progress.

Progress is progrss. Measure yourself with where you were 3 months ago. 6 months ago. 1 year ago.

Don’t measure yourself with a future self. That leads to not appreciating what we’ve done thus far like the amazing changes and fat loss we’ve had thus far and the energy and improved health.

I want to leave you with a few quotes you should put somewhere you can see them, especially in times of impatience.


Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. - Lao Tzu

When things don’t happen right away, just remember that it takes 6 months to make a Rolls Royce and 13 hours to make a Toyota.

Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet. - Jean Jacques Rousseau

No great thing is created suddenly. - Epictetus
