Since I don’t like to clutter people’s email inboxes up, I post blog updates and special announcements on the Wold Fitness Facebook page. (I asked in bootcamp, and most people check their facebook more than their email!)
The ValSlide is one of my favorite fitness tools. It looks too innocent to be so diabolical! In this post I have videos of 15 ValSlide exercises that I recommend for wrestlers, MMA fighters, and other grapplers. But even if you have no desire to step onto the mat, these exercises will help you get the lean, toned bod that the best fighters have:
As most of you know, I was messed up in a car wreck almost 2 years ago, and I missed 12 months of working out. Just standing up was so painful I wanted to cry. The dude who fixed me is Dr. Brian Russell. In this post Dr. Russell shares two studies showing how you can improve your health and fitness with NO additional exercise!:
Even though I know no one on a weight loss program would ever think of drinking to excess, you might have some friends or family members who want to celebrate with a big blowout. Here are some strategies that will help them avoid and cure a hangover:
Sometimes we haven’t been following a nutrition plan very closely and then SURPRISE, a big event comes up that makes us wish we had been! Here are a few strategies to use to look your best when you only have a few days to prepare (but next time, build up to it!):
It’s still weird to me that an exercise freak like myself has started studying organic farming. There’s a good reason though, and it’s this: You Will Never Be Healthier Than The Food You Eat. You think you’re being good by eating chicken and veggies and then it turns out the chicken is full of hormones and the veggies are full of pesticides and they’re poisoning you. It’s sad. Check this post out:
PS – I mostly write about whatever I’ve been thinking about lately, but I’d LOVE to get you the information you want and need to reach your health and fitness goals. Leave me a comment with any ideas or questions and I’ll dig into my files and find the answer for you
There used to be a really creepy guy masquerading as a personal trainer at the gym I joined in college. This post has maybe the two funniest pictures EVER on this website (both from yoga classes!), and some videos of my trying to be creepy:
I’m putting together a special report with fitness secrets from celebrity trainers.
Here are just a few of the clients these trainers I’m interviewing have worked with: Mary J Blige, Nicole Richie, Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone, Chuck Liddell, Matthew Perry, Debra Messing, Rick Fox, Nicole Sherzinger (from the Pussycat Dolls), Richard Gere, Cindy Crawford, Jim Carrey, Lauren Holly, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Shue, Jon Favreau, Kate Beckinsale, Rachel Nichols, Jennifer Garner, and a whole lot more!
A special summer bootcamp featuring KETTLEBELLS is going to happen. We had a little trouble finding a location, but now all systems are GO!
Kettlebells are the hottest, most effective training tool out there. When you pair a kettlebell with my Firestorm Fat Loss system, you have the hands-down best method for losing weight and getting a toned and fit body there is.
Check out this girl using kettlebells in her workout:
Lots of people have asked if there’s a “next level” they can go to with their training. More exclusive, more elite. Well, Wold Fitness PLATINUM is launching in the next few weeks.
I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but Platinum members will be getting all sorts of special privileges like members-ONLY seminars and special events, copies of ALL of my training, nutrition, and other programs, unlimited personal training, home visits, and much more…
And finally… I’m teaming up with Dr. Brian Russell to put on a seminar for parents of young athletes. Here’s the email:
We are pleased to announce a FREE clinic/seminar to educate parents on helping their children (athletes) better prevent sports injuries and heal faster.
Dr Brian Russell (Chiropractic Physician) & Luke Wold (Certified Health/Fitness Instructor) will be presenting (FREE of Charge) a Seminar focused on Preventing Sports Injuries.
To accommodate the multitudes of schedules and groups they have kindly agreed to do 4 separate (but repeat) presentations.
ALL seminars will be offered in Carson City at Capital City’s practice facility (The Silver State Athletic Center; 5680 Morgan Mill Rd). There are no plans (currently) to offer a similar seminar in Reno.
You may attend any of the times offered. The clinics/seminar coincide with normal Carson practice times so as to hopefully minimize commuting.
The following is the general synopsis of talking points (provided by Dr Russell & Luke Wold):
“During this 60 minute class we will be addressing issues like:
1) Proper nutrition for the athletes.
2) The importance of warming up. Why the athletes do strength and conditioning to prevent injury.
3) Info on athletic taping to help prevent injuries.
4) When to ice, heat, play, or stay out of the game after a player gets injured.
5) What signs should I look for in my athlete to know if she is struggling with an injury.
The goal of this workshop is to empower parents/guardians with knowledge and to support them in taking an active role in preventing sports injuries.”
We hope you are able to attend and will benefit from this offer.
A lot of Carson City, NV locals go to the gym with their own ingrained personal ideas about how to lose weight, different training methods, what equipment to use, and which exercises they should do for what their fitness goal is. The problem is that almost all of this information is completely incorrect! Some weight loss methods are based on old-wives tales, still more on misinformation and out-right lies from the weight-loss industry.
Mistake #1 : Eat Less, Lose Weight
Unfortunately, simply consuming less food does not guarantee a healthy and attractive body. It definitely help, but the biggest factor is the type of food you’re eating. If you’re eating a small portions, but they’re small portions of crappy food you’re not doing yourself any good!
You’re basically starving yourself and teaching your body to hold on to fat and excess pounds, as well as weakening your system so you’re not only hungry and malnourished, but you’re completely out of shape—there is nothing remotely attractive about that. At Wold Fitness personal training, we make sure our Carson City clients understand that they need to incorporate natural foods such as fruits and vegetables into their every day eating, as well as a few hours of the RIGHT KIND of exercise each week. We don’t just preach though, our personal trainers in Carson City also help you design your meal plans and offer delicious preparation ideas to help you reach your weight loss goals quickly, easily, and healthily.
Mistake #2 : More Time In The Gym, Less Fat On The Tummy
Again, you need a combination of training and proper nutrition – running on the treadmill all evening will not magically transform you. Despite what other Carson City personal trainers may tell you, you don’t need to spend excessive hours in the gym every week. Who wants to live in a gym? Many trainers try to lure you in for extra hours when they’re not even paying attention to you.
At Wold Fitness’s Personal Trainer Carson City program we will never abandon you or pressure you to practically live in the gym. Our focus is on getting you into shape through vigorous and exciting exercises aimed at melting off fat, sculpting muscles, raising metabolism, and firming up your whole body for a tight, toned, and super-attractive you. Our team of Carson City personal trainers know the most valuable exercises to make sure every minute of your training session will give you maximum results.
If you’ve bought into the two big mistake I listed above and never saw results, or if you’re new to personal fitness training and realize that you need the extra motivation and friendly kick-in-the-butt our personal training team offers, visit this page: Personal Trainer Carson City
We promise to push you, encourage you, guide you, and instruct you so that you can quickly work your way into an amazingly fit, toned, and extremely appealing body.
Short History Of Carson City
The Consolidated Municipality of Carson City is the capital of Nevada.
The Carson River (from which the city takes its name) was named after the famed mountain man Christopher “Kit” Carson by the explorer John Fremont in 1843.
In 1859, after discovery of gold and silver in the nearby Comstock Lode, Carson city’s population began to rise and the town was eventually selected as the territorial Capital of Nevada.
When Nevada became a state in 1864, Carson City was confirmed as the state capital as has remained ever since

In it, the skilled writer Elizabeth chronicles a year she spent divided between:
Italy (Learning how to love eating)
India (Learning how to love praying)
Bali (Learning how to love loving)
If you haven’t read it, don’t worry. I won’t spoil any surprises.
During four months Elizabeth spent at an Indian Ashram a fellow student gave her some great advice…
One day she was whining to him about her frustrations.
He could have sympathized with “Boy, that’s tough.” Or he could have criticized with “That’s nothing, stop whining!”
But he didn’t do either one.
Instead he said this…
“It’s a pity you’re the only person in the history of the world who ever had this problem.”
Isn’t what he said great? We ALL have problems, frustrations, fears, and doubts.
The thing to realize here is that problems can be overcome. It it’s been overcome once, somewhere, by someone, it can be overcome by you right here, right now. Her friend was giving her perspective.
She Had REAL Pizza In Italy
He went on to say:
“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select what clothes you’re going to wear every day. This is a power you can cultivate.
If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.
Drop everything else but that.
Because if you can’t learn to master your thinking, you’re in deep trouble forever.”
This is some powerful stuff.
Bali Looks Like Fun
In my Unstoppable Fitness Formula we have an abundance of techniques to help you master your thinking and accelerate your results.
Here’s one of my favorite exercises to find where your thinking is holding you back:
We’ll assume a goal of losing 5% of your body’s fat.
Now seriously ask yourself “What could I LOSE while working on this goal?”
Here’s a small sample of answers I’ve seen (with a rebuttal):
“I’d have to buy new clothes!” (How can THIS possibly be a negative?)
“My kids won’t want to eat healthier foods!” (Hey, YOU’RE the parent. Show them how much you love them by keeping them fit, healthy, and energetic)
“I’ll have to invest in a trainer!” (Having a trainer with a proven plan is often the deciding factor between success and failure)
“I’ll have to spend hours and hours in the gym!” (It only takes four 30 minute sessions a week. Couldn’t you find a few hours during the week where YOU are the most important thing to do?)
“I don’t like to sweat” (Get fat and you’ll sweat trying to tie your shoes)
“It won’t be any FUN!” (Find an a fun, energetic, knowledgeable trainer and then enlist a friend to sign up with you. It’ll be more fun than spending the next 20 years avoiding seeing yourself in the mirror, I promise)
“I’ll lose all my friends!” (If your friends would leave you for accomplishing such a healthy and fun goal, they weren’t your friends in the first place)
There are literally dozens of other objections and avoidances people list if they’re honest with themselves.
We subconsciously let these small fears keep us from taking action towards our needs, wants, and goals.
So make your list of the negatives of achievement. Take a good hard look at it.
Couldn’t you quickly overcome all of them, if you wanted to?
Of course you could.
Don’t let your past control your future.
Re-read the title of this post, get moving, and don’t forget to Eat, Pray, and Love.
Committed to your success,
~ Lucas Wold
PS – Here’s more of wisdom from Elizabeth Gilbert:
“The inability to open up to hope is what blocks trust, and blocked trust is the reason for blighted dreams.”
Hey gang, I asked my new trainer to fill out a bio for us, and check it out, he lost 80 pounds!
Name: Eric Robinson
Hometown: Carson City, born and raised
Passion: Personal Training (expert in motivation, nutrition, and exercise)
Aso Enjoy: Music, Motorcycles, and FITNESS
I went to highschool here in carson and wrestled varsity for the local team (Go Big Blue!). Once I graduated High School I scored a job for Wells Fargo doing mortgages and made good money while I was doing it. The problem was that I got complacent without sports in my life and started eating one or 2 meals a day at fast food restaraunts (did you know a breakfast sandwich, hashbrowns and a soda takes you well over 1000 calories?!?) and that was all it took.
It was like I didn’t even notice as I slowly climbed and climbed up the scale numbers. One day I looked in the mirror and I had stretch marks on my love handles and the scale had a whopping 280!
I knew I had to do SOMETHING for my own sake (and my girlfriend’s) so I hired a trainer who taught me the basics. I still remember that first shopping trip, I had a notepad and a calculator and it took 3 hours to get all the right stuff because all my trainer told me was the appropriate AMOUNT of calories, he didn’t tell me where to find them. After training with him for almost a year I had lost about 20 pounds of fat and gained a bunch of muscle and I felt like I could handle it from there. Once I was out on my own, something just CLICKED man, I dialed in on my diet, shopping was instinctual and I started eating the things I liked to eat.
Within about 2-3 months I lost another 60 pounds!
I knew the rules and when to bend them, and I had great strategies to stay motivated and keep me at the gym.
The reason I brought this up is that once I read over “THE WOLD FITNESS NUTRITION PLAN” that my buddy Luke gave me the other day, I was amazed at how similar it was to the way I lost all that weight so fast, the balance of calories was right on and I KNOW you ‘re getting some SERIOUS results over at Wold fitness with the way you’re guiding your clients. I’m stoked to be a part of this, I love fitness and I LOVE helping people acheive their fitness goals!!
Hey Guys, it’s Luke again.
Eric is going to be training here in the late morning and afternoon. I know lots of people have asked about a lunchtime or afternoon workout, now you’ll have that opportunity!
He’s a freaking AWESOME trainer and he’ll be using all of the PROVEN methods of the Wold Fitness Unstoppable Fitness Formula to get you lean, toned, and sexy so fast your friends won’t believe it.
To work out with me in a semi-private group is $45 per session. To hire me for one-on-one is $147/hour. But I know times are hard for a lot of people, and they might be hard for you. It’s certainly hard for a lot of other businesspeople out here.
Well, here’s what Eric and I are going to do. I want you to come in for a free consultation with Eric. Try a workout with him.
And if you don’t think that our Unstoppable Fitness Formula is exactly what you need to get into shape, I’ll give you a free at-home workout manual and meal plan just for coming in.
And what’s more, for his first 20 clients, Eric is going to train you for ONLY 15 A SESSION!
Why are we doing this? Because even though Eric freakin’ rocks, not everyone in Carson City knows it. So after he helps 20 people fit back into their skinny jeans in just a few weeks, he’ll have more clients than he can handle.
So if you want to try a workout, and maybe get personal training at an unheard-of deal, give me a call at 509-945-3856 and I’ll tell you all about it.
