By Jens Baltrusch is an author, sport manager and personal trainer from Zurich/Switzerland

Jessica Biel is in a marvellous shape in her actual movie A-Team. In several interviews she has stated her passion for Yoga, meditation and outdoor fitness. Many other people, especially aspiring actors, also do the same activities, but do not have the same fitness results. Let us have a closer look  at Jessicas training secrets and what makes the difference in most cases.

Rule no 1 : Find sport disciplines you are passionate about

Jessica grew up in an beautiful outdoor landscape in Colorado. She says that this was one of the reasons she was getting into outdoor training. Together with her family, she was doing all kind of outdoor activities such as camping, trekking and rafting. Still today, that is one of her major strategies agains stress: escaping outdoors into the wild and beeing active.

Conclusion: The passion for a certain activity keeps you active. Digg deeper into your past if you are not aware of it. Regular movement is neccessary to stay healthy, boost your metabolism and cope with stress.

Rule no 2: Find your very own food strategies which are healthy and fun

Jessica sais she mentioned she does not like too much parties and other events. That is a crucial point in the diet of many people, especially actors, models other business persons who need to socialize on a regular basis. If you can not keep your food strategies when you are going out, you will ruin your health and shape in the long run. Here is how you make it work.

Mental training: getting in shape is a matter of mind

British scientists found out that losing weight is mainly a matter of your mind. The biggest problem of many, who are facing a diet or a change of their nutrition, is the perceived feeling of dissatisfaction which you get if you do not consume your usual amount of food.

The scientists found out, that the perceived amount of food which you consume is an important factor in your personal food strategy. This means that you could often eat less to be satisfied, but only your mind tells you that you want more food. This is one reason, why so called light-products , do not work with everyone. A light product tells your mind that there is something missing in the product and that it will not give you the satisfaction, which you are seeking.

If you want to change eating habits or succeed with a diet, you have to change your idea of how it works. It is not all about keeping a stiff upper lip with a diet. A diet should be supported with mental training to change the perception of portion sizes and the perception of healthy food.

Conclusion: you need to work on your mindset and your perception of an healthy lifestyle.

How do you implement mental training in your daily life without making it too complicated? Jessica is into Yoga and mediation which you can learn also in most modern fitness centres and spas. Take part in the classes and study more the mental aspects of movement and nutrition. This will reshape your attitude and long-term habits!

Further on, goal setting plays a huge part in the game. If you set clear and realistic goals, you will activate more energy and will power ot reach them. Jessica wants to climb a part of the Mount Everest which is up to 5400m high. That is her mission for which she is mobilizing her spiritual and physical power – what is your personal mission?

Rule no 3: Socialize with your activities

If you do not like to be on yor own, socialize with friends and share the fun during activities.

That makes a big difference for your athletic performance.

Jessica grew up within a family who joined lots of activities. Friends and family use to push and motivate each other. This created a whole new training atmosphere.

Conclusion: plan weekend trips or evening classes in the next fitness centre with friends and family and have a healthy party!

Rule no 4: Get expert help if you need it

Jessica for sure is privileged and gets help from one of the best personal trainers in Hollywood, Jason Walsh. What we know about Jason is that he has a vast experience with functional training of professional athletes, since he worked with Athletes Performance in Arizona and holds several certificates in physical training methods. He guided Jessicas Training for months during the film work, and that was one of the crucial points for her to keep motivated. If you train with a personal trainer, you train more effective. A trainer motivates you, if you are down, and plans your workout in the long run.

Conclusion: If you do not have the expertise in a field in which you want to succeed, you need to get assistance from time to time. If you want to learn how to be an actor, your get acting lessons. If you want to be a singer, you get singing lessons. If you want to get the latest updates on fitness training and nutrition, you get personal training or food coaching sessions. This attitude will push you in the right direction and make you succeed much faster.
