THE YAZ PHILOSOPHY
Yaz’s training philosophy focuses on three
core areas: nutrition, aerobics and resistance training.
All three components are necessary for attaining optimal
levels of fitness and balanced health. Yaz prioritizes
nutrition because without a proper diet, lifelong fitness
cannot be achieved. In fact, good nutrition is 80% of the
struggle to lose fat and build muscle.
Physical fitness involves more than working out in the
gym. If you go home and indulge in unhealthy foods after
a hard workout, your rate of progress diminishes. That’s
why Yaz’s approach to training emphasizes nutrition
along with aerobics and resistance training.
The key to proper nutrition is eating four to five small
meals a day and not overeating at any one sitting. Keeping
carbohydrate intake to an absolute minimum at night is
essential because of the body's slower nighttime metabolic
rate. For example, eating a “no-carb” dinner
allows your body to burn fat while you are sleeping—rather
than the carbohydrates you might have consumed during your
Increasing the number of daily meals may at first appear
counterintuitive. Many clients initially believe that “more
meals” equals “more weight.” Consuming
smaller portions with greater frequency, however, actually
improves the body's metabolic rate. While training with
Yaz you will build lean body mass, enabling you to burn
even more calories throughout the day.
Along with a balanced diet, a personalized vitamin supplement
plan can provide the body with vital nutrients. Yaz has
always believed that taking multi-vitamins and anti-oxidants
(for example Vitamin E, C and Beta Carotene) is essential
for almost everyone and that women benefit from additional
iron and calcium. Yaz often advises her clients on nutrition
during her training sessions, and she can help you determine
which vitamin supplements may be necessary for your specific
