Who has time for fat? About half of the United States, according to the stats. But one BodySpace BodyGroup is turning back the clock to a leaner time.
Travis Smith was no stranger to weight struggles when he founded 0 Time For Fat in 2010. Today, he serves as the in-house facilitator, motivator, and friend to over 1,800 members.
Together, this vibrant online community shares tips, techniques, and helps one another however is necessary. Congratulations, 0 Time For Fat! Your are this month's BodyGroup of the Month!
We are a group which wants to look good not only for ourselves, but for our families. We want to be great examples to our kids so they also live a healthy and fit life. We strive to not only look good, but have energy to play with our kids and to be around to meet our great-grandkids.
This group is made up of proud, committed individuals who on any given chance will help any person out however they need. If you need help with which supplements to take, which routine would be better, or how to drop that last couple of pounds to reveal those solid abs, this is the place.
Our commitment is to strive for change! Always get back on the workout wagon, even if you've been off of it for a little too long.
Living life the way we want to live it! 0 Time for Fat is about taking control of our lives, and making sure that we'll be around to play with our kids, grandkids, and other loved ones.
Most of us want to try to lose body fat, but then there are a few members who want to build muscle and maybe some who want to train to compete. But all of us want a transformation, and we're going to get it one way or another. This BodyGroup makes all that easier.
Our members include soldiers, airmen, veterans, police officers, students, moms, dads, grandfathers, grandmothers, average joes and janes-anyone and everyone!
I joined 0 Time For Fat because the members seemed knowledgeable and helpful to one another. Also the title says it all. I believe that many people are trying to accomplish fat loss so why not live by the motto "No Time For Fat."
I joined 0 Time For Fat because I needed a group of people dealing with the same real challenges as I was. Sharing this experience with these guys has helped motivate me to keep on pushing myself and try to accelerate my fat loss.
Simple, I wanted to communicate with like-minded people who I thought could help me without judging me. That's exactly what they did. They provide advice and encouragement to help me during my transformation. 0 Time For Fat and its members helped me reach my goal dropping from 192 pounds to 175 pounds in 12 weeks.
BodySpace = accountability. The blog, training plans, meal plans, supplementation plans, personal trainer videos, progress photos and gallery photos all contribute to my transparency and transformation. My military physical training (PT) scores before and after BodySpace don't lie.
I started 0 Time for Fat as a distress beacon. I needed help and I figured I wasn't alone.
I was in the U.S. Army, and during my time in service, I started to gain a lot of weight—really fast. I was on the verge of being chaptered out for being overweight. This BodyGroup and BodyBuilding.com saved me and my career.
During my Tour in Afghanistan, I went from 275 pounds, 35 percent body fat to 215 pounds, 19 percent body fat in about eight months using tips and guidance from my members.
We have members asking for help and members helping them out. And there is always more than one person helping them out.
I would tell them to be honest, helpful, and respectful. We like our members to stand up when someone asks for help. And don't pull random "facts" out of thin air, but tips are always welcome here.
Yes, I stop and think of their questions or situations that they might run into. Then I help, or I sit back and watch as my members help. I usually follow their advice, even if I wasn't having the problem. I trust my members enough to change a routine or my diet. I haven't been steered wrong yet.
I would have them look at our members' progressions. We may not have a three-time Mr. Universe in our group, but that's the great thing about 0 Time for Fat: They're normal people who show other people how to get results.
I think it keeps my mind open to suggestions—especially, if I can get tips and tricks on fitness or nutrition.
We keep the doors open to anyone who wants to change their body to improve their life. That means more help, encouragement, and confidence boosts from more members. More members can relate to each other, which means they can help one another.
One of the things I love about the BodyGroup pages is that anyone can create a group. I don't really think there is a worst part about the pages. They're easy to use and navigate through.
Yes, very worthwhile. I've shown pride in many things because of this group. I wake up and attack each day with positive motivation which I try to spread it to everyone I work with.
This group has shown me that they don't care where you're from, what you look like, or what gender you are. That kind of bond between each other makes me proud to be a part of this group.
