    You're Karolina Kurkova and you have three weeks until a Victoria's Secret fashion show. You already look great but, be serious, you're going to be strutting your stuff in front of hundreds of people. Did I mention you'll be wearing lingerie? Yes, this is the time to bring in the big guns.

    Cross Training
    dot

    Brett starts fine-tuning his clients weeks ahead of an important event or photo shoot by cross-training them to balance strength training (for toned muscles), with cardio training (for endurance) and interval training (for a revved-up metabolism).

    "It's the cross-training that's key. It doesn't let your body adapt to one stimulus too much and it keeps your workouts exciting." What does Brett suggest? Take a yoga class one day, work with your trainer the next, run outside, go on a snowboarding trip - you get the picture.

    Cross-Training:
    Cross-training refers to training in different ways to improve overall performance. It takes advantage of the particular effectiveness of each training method, while at the same time attempting to neglect the shortcomings of that method by combining it with other methods that address its weaknesses.

    "Structure your cross-training appropriately by alternating the intensity of your sessions so you work, recover, work, recover. Just don't overtrain! That's a common issue with type-A people in particular."

    Overall it's the lean muscle that gets the calories burning, and burning fat emphasizes muscle definition that might otherwise remain hidden. Just what the trainer ordered for a body that's runway-bound!

    Diet And The White Devils

    With fitness training underway and a few weeks until the big event, it's time to take a serious look at diet. "Diet is honestly at least fifty percent of the battle. Most people drink too much alcohol, eat too much sugar and eat too many processed starches."

    So the Victoria's Secret ladies pull the plug on these weight loss pitfalls. "I say, stay away from white devils: white sugar, white flour, white milk, white salt and white rice," says Brett. The alternatives?

    "Switch to natural sugars, whole grain flours, get rid of cow's milk dairy (Brett recommends almond, rice, carob or hemp milk), use Celtic or Himalayan salt, and brown or wild rice. Often I'll ask my clients to get a food delivery service or to make their own food so they know what's really in it. Or I tell them that they can go to specific restaurants, where we know the ingredients."

    Cut The Carbs, Not The Energy

    Cutting carbohydrates, specifically, drops water weight rapidly, says Brett. To avoid the sluggishness and fatigue that can accompany a low carb, low sugar diet, he recommends increasing the intake of medium chain fats like coconut oil, a quick source of energy.

    Start cooking veggies in coconut oil, even eat it by the spoonful. "And drink at least three liters of water a day to flush things out. As we get closer to the event we taper the water off." After the event, his clients always reintroduce carbohydrates slowly to avoid weight gain.

    "As a trainer you need to learn the science of the body, the nuts and bolts and the hardware of the craft: anatomy, physiology, physics, biomechanics. But there's a personal level to training as well, because at the end of the day you're dealing with humans, not computers. Understanding that is how you get results."
