Introduction to Cam's Crazy 8s

 

Hi Fitness Warriors!

 

Welcome to Cam’s Crazy 8s!

As you are now embarking on your health and wellness journey, it's of high importance that you read this blog in detail to guarantee you get the most out of your time here. Throughout this blog we'll discuss all aspects of Cam's Crazy 8s, this includes how to set up your dashboard, track your results, set up a schedule, set goals and even receive a free membership - so without further ado, lets get into it!

 

Background:

 

Before reading on, allow me to quickly share the journey of Cam's Crazy 8s so far...

Home workoutsIt all began in 2017 with a young, driven, hard working personal trainer - me! In my time as a personal trainer, I saw hundreds of members come in and out of the gym every single day - ranging from young, old, overweight, underweight and everything in between.

Although these people were driven to create a happier and healthy future for themselves, one thing was missing - direction! Members would come into the gym and not know what to do or how to do it and most importantly, members would have the right intentions but no idea how to achieve their required goals. This is why I took it upon myself and formed CC8s.

Our online platform is designed to guide and support you along your health and wellness journey. We dive into all topics that we believe are going to help YOU accelerate YOUR transformations to ensure you're no longer alone and without direction!

Listed below are aspects to our platform that I need you to learn before moving forward;

 

Dashboard:

 

The CC8s dasboard is designed to be "your hub;" here you will set your goals, track your progress, plan, book in for workouts and so much more! As this is a private page for each and every member, we encourge you to make this page as personalised as possible to boost your motivated each and every time you login.

Listed below are the four main aspects to your dashboard, so please read carefully;

 

  1. Account Info

 

Firstly, you will need to set-up your account information.   

The main aspect of your 'account information' is to set up an inspiring 'note to self.' This is for you to read each and every-time you login.

Your note to self can be whatever you please, however, if you can set this up to be an emotional trigger and reminder of why you signed up and what you are aiming to accomplish, you will be able to create a strong urge of motivation each and everytime you read it.

Through your 'account information' you can also store progress images! Progress images can be a vital tracking point of tracking your physical shape and appearance every 6-weeks.

The three main images I'd advice you to track are listed below (remembering no one else can see these):

 

  • Full-body Front;
  • Full-body Side; and
  • Full-body Behind.

 

These three images will enable you to notice your physical change over time - this can highlight areas you firstly want to transform further, then secondly the changes you accomplish once you commence your training with us - we recommend you update these images every 6-weeks.

Use the progress images function + the note to self as motivation as no matter your goal, physical change will occur if you follow the process and our guidelines!

  1. My Schedule / Accountability

 

If you can develop a system / schedule to keep yourself accountable over a period of time I can almost ensure you'll acheive your health and wellness goals!

The purpose of creating a schedule is to push yourself, plan ahead and ensure you stop procrastinating and delaying workouts that you know you want / need to complete. By creating this schedule, it will mean you receive notifications and reminders to ensure you always put aside as least 8 minutes to complete your favourite CC8s workouts.     

The 'My Schedule' section of your dashboard is my personal favourite, as it can be the most valuable tool we have to offer at CC8s (other than are countless workouts).

This section is designed for you to further personalise your dashboard - you can do this by heading to this specific section on your dashboard and click 'Add New.' As you will see once completing this action, you are then able to select an activity (such as anyone of our eight workouts or blog reading), select a time and date and also be able to set the re-occurrence of this event for you to have the ability to make this specific event a weekly or fortnightly habit.

To discover the steps needed to be taken to set up your schedule, please see below. This is designed to automatically book in workouts onto your chosen devices calender which can then send you a reminder.

                                                     

On day-7 of your membership, you will also start to receive the CC8s fortnightly task. So whether it's getting out of bed early, not watching another episode of your favourite TV show or even spending some time during your lunch break, CC8s is going to help build fitness into your current lifestyle if you currently struggle doing this.

3. My Goals

 

The “My Goals” section can be one of the most important sections when it comes to your health and fitness.

In “My Goals,” you have the option to set as many goals as you wish - I recommend three different goals (short term, long term and a check in point between the two).

As you read through our blog content, you will discover that an emotionally driven goal will always be more powerful to inspiring. When you master your goal setting skills, I can guarantee you'll be unstoppably motivated!

As you can see above, I have three very basic examples of some goals you may wish to set for yourself – make sure yours are more specific and emotionally connected to what you want to accomplish and why!

To receive extra assistance in selecting your chosen goals, please check out the "Three Ways to Stay on Track" blog or reach out for guidance and assistance at info@camscrazy8s.com.

4. Progress Report / Taking Measurements

 

Your "Progress Report" is where CC8s and your dashboard can become even more specifically unique and personalised just for you.

Throughout this section you will have the ability to track any area of your health and wellness; Similar to progress images, receiving results are a massive motivator and tracker to see where your improving / need to focus more time on. Throughout your time at CC8s, we will ask you to re-take these measurements every 6-weeks through your weekly task.

Please see below for an example of how you can set-up the progress report section;

When you go onto your dashboard to enter in your progress report, you will find that there are default actions pre-set (however you can and should change these to meet your own requirements as these need to be personal and important to YOU)!

On your dashboard, you have the ability to track up to eight measurements. To make the most of your time here, I strongly recommend ensuring they have a combination of:

 

  • Measurements (waist / chest / legs specifically);
  • Mindset (stress levels / sleep hours); and
  • Something especially important to YOU (like the amount of workouts being completed a week, weight, glasses of water etc...).

 

Just remember, there are no right or wrong actions to set, as long as the eight actions you select are important, custom to you and in line with your goals. Please see below for the steps you need to take to set up this section;

If you are unsure how to take measurements - never fear! Here is a quick breakdown of how I recommend you track your progress through measurements:

 

TAKING MEASUREMENTS

ARMS

Between your elbow and shoulder bone – you will find the centre/ largest section of your arm.

Place a measuring tape firmly around this section when found. Pull the measuring tape tightly to get the measurement.

CHEST

Place the measuring tape over your left and right nipple as these generally mark the centre of your chest.

After doing so, wrap the measuring tape in a straight line directly under your arm pits and back (ensure the measuring tape stays around the centre of your chest) and pull tightly to get the measurement.

WAIST

Place the measuring tape on your belly button. Once there, wrap the tape around your waist ensuring it stays at a straight level. Once completed, pull tightly to receive your measurement.

HIPS

Your hip measurement will be the largest part of your glutes (butt). Wrap the tape directly around your hips and pull tightly to receive your measurement.

Workouts

 

Finally, the aspect that everybody is excited about!

CC8s is a unique platform with bodyweight workouts at the forefront! The CC8 workouts are exclusive to us and all of our workouts take only 8-minutes to complete!

Before getting into CC8 workouts, there are a few things you need to know!

 

  • Throughout our 30 minute Live Streams we don’t conduct any warm-ups before-hand or recovery afterwards. Therefore, we have uploaded a selection of Warm-up and Recovery videos to the “Bonus Workouts” page. We highly recommend completing these before and after your workouts to ensure you are ready to go as soon as our live streams commence!
  • We understand that members may not always be able to make the Live Streamed times. Therefore, CC8s has 24/7 access to countless 8 minute workouts, workouts of the week, workouts of the day and much more! These workouts change frequently to give you varitey each and everyday!
  • The live streamed workouts are structured as followed:
    • Firstly, live streams commence;
    • When the workout is over, the workout stream is moved to the “Bonus Workouts” page;
    • This will be kept available here, alongside many other workouts for the remainder of the week!

 

This will give all members access to almost 50 workouts at a time! To learn more, read on…

 

Community Forums

 

As you may already know, we are a community of like minded people who come together on a platform with the common goal of creating a long lasting, healthy lifestyle!

Our main community access points are through the forums page, the live stream workout chat and by contacting info@camscrazy8s.com.

In these areas, we want the community to form and discuss topics that they need extra assistance in, share results and goals and push one-another each and everyday! The more you build a strong relationship with our community, the more accountable and driven you will be!

 

Blogs

 

Lastly, our blogs.

Our blogs are a forever growing point of CC8s and need to be for you as well!

You now have the exclusive opportunity to learn the in's and out's of your health and wellness. We give you access to our comprehensive blogs and best of all - it’s all stored in one place!

However, it's important to take your time when you read through our blogs as this can be where so many people go wrong - rushing through content and forgetting half of the information they absorbed and never implementing. This may then lead to confusion and cause difficulty when seeking long-term lifestyle changes.

The purpose of our blogs is to inform you of new lifestyle habits, plus the steps you need to take to implement them. Collectively, these habits will go a long way in assisting you create a healthy and balanced lifestyle. My top tips when reading the blogs are:

 

  • When starting, head to our “Start Learning” page where you will receive the first few steps of vital information;
  • Once reading a blog, take time to understand the information - read it once, twice, three times (whatever you need);
  • Map out the steps you need to take to implement your new profound knowledge into your everyday life and habits rather than never changing;
  • Over the span of a couple of days or weeks, implement these steps and habits until it becomes second nature to you; and
  • When the previous blog information becomes a habit, you are then ready to move onto the next.

 

Repeat the above steps for each and every blog you read. Although some topics may not catch your attention, they are there for a reason, as each and every blog you implement will slowly start to create your new balanced lifestyle that will assist you both mentally and physically. This is how you are going to make a massive difference!
