Coconut Oil. The one stop shop!

Coconut Oil!!!
Coconut oil is a solid substance. And it liquidizes when its warm. It will basically be your temperature guide. Lol.

It is something we must Always have in our home! We get ours from Costco.
What can you use it for?.....Better question is, what can you NOT use it for?!

There is so many ways you can incorporate Coconut Oil, and many benefits that come along with it.


In the Kitchen
•Cook with it. Adds a different flavor compared to Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

•On toast with some nut butter, or your favorite jam.

•Air pop popcorn with some coconut oil, instead of adding butter.

•Add a teaspoon to your morning coffee

External uses
•Makeup remover. Get a little coconut oil on your finger tips and gently rub over eye makeup, and face. WARNING: you will look like the Joker after you rub the coconut oil and have the makeup smeared all over your face!! LOL. Then take a tissue and gently rub all the makeup off.
Added plus: you just moisturized your face in the process. (If you have oily skin, you can wash your face afterwards if needed)

•Moisturizer. Comes in handy when its winter and you get dry skin. And ALL NATURAL. Rub on hands, elbows, knees, ALL Over if you want. Just don't use TOO much, or you will be super greasy. A Little goes a long way.

•Hair Conditioner. I lately have just been washing my hair with shampoo (just the scalp) and then I gently comb my hair. I add a little coconut oil to my hair when its all dry. Starting from the tips and work my way up. Again, only use a little. Just enough on your finger tips, rub your hands together then apply it to you hair.

•Oil Pulling: Just like you mouth wash, you would do the same with coconut oil. Just use half a teas spoon, or even less, and swish the coconut oil in your mouth for around 10-20 minutes ( the longer you can do it the better). What it will do is remove the bacteria from your mouth/gums/teeth, help with oder and whiten teeth. Note: this wont happen with just one time, so try to do it a couple times a week. ONCE YOU ARE FINISHED MAKE SURE TO SPIT THE COCONUT OIL IN THE GARBAGE!!! Do NOT spit it down your sink, because It will then solidify and clog your drain.

Go get yourself some Coconut oil, if you don't already have it in your household.
Use it, Love it! And if you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Enjoy the Benefits! ;)

Warm bowl of Protein Oatmeal

Yes, I live in California. So our Winters aren't as cold as they are in the East Coast....
BUT our mornings and nights do get Pre-tty darn cold. Mornings especially.

So what better way to start a cold morning, than with a hot bowl of oatmeal.....Protein Oatmeal!!

Here's my breakfast from today, warmed me up and gave me energy, and super quick and easy to make!

Protein Oatmeal

  • bring about 1 cup of water to a boil
  • add about 1/2 cup of oats to boiling water (lower temp to medium)
  • add about a tablespoon of natural Peanut Butter
  • sprinkle some cinnamon
  • drizzle some honey (to taste)
  • stir well and let cook for about 5-7 minutes

**You can see my bowl steaming and ready to eat! My bowl has about 1 cup of the cooked oatmeal, and this recipe makes about 4-6 servings.

Super yummy, and has what you need to get the morning going.
PS-You can also add some fruits to this, such as cut up bananas, any types of berries for example.

Enjoy! and Stay Warm!

I was kinda insulted when called "thin"

I wanted to share this little story with you guys.
I meant to write it down sooner, but haven't got the chance to do so. So here we go.

Probably 2 weeks back I was at the grocery store with the husband. He was getting some coffee beans and I was stand next to him with the shopping cart.
These two ladies were trying to pass by and politely said "excuse us", and I of course said "oh, sorry" and moved my cart and myself to the side.
Then one of them said, "We couldn't fit, we're not thin like you. We'll Never be thin like you".

I smiled as they walked away, but then turned to my husband and said "I'm not thin...I'm Strong!!"

Now, if this was said to me many years back when all I obsessed over was being thin, having thin "feminine" arms, thigh gap, no belly fat......I would have been glowing.
But now my mentality is, I just want to be Strong! And I want to showcase Strength. I don't want other women to think that in order to be Happy and satisfied with their body, they have to be "thin". I want women to not be put into categories of "thin", "fat", "manly", "boyish".....
How much happier would we all be if we were recognized by our strength?!
Maybe, if these women would have replaced the word "thin" with "fit" "healthy" I would have smiled and felt proud. But for some reason, that word "thin" just hit me in a wrong way.

But this is what happens in a journey. You start because you so desperatly want to change the way you look, but then it becomes about getting stronger, feeling empowered, being Proud!
There will always be people that make comments that may not necessarily hit you the right way, but what matters is that YOU are happy. You have come a long way, you KNOW what you have been through to get to where you are today. So just continue that path. Keep getting Stronger. And remember, in the end it's how YOU feel that matters. You must be happy with yourself whether you are "thin", "thick".....You are You and you are Strong!!!

Stay Healthy,

"Text Neck"- a great article

Hey guys,
I wanted to share this great article that I read this morning from the Washington post, titled:

Text neck’ is becoming an ‘epidemic’ and could wreck your spine

                                (Courtesy of Dr. Ken Hansraj M.D.)

We do it so often, and we don't even notice it. While we are texting, or on the computer, we bend our necks to look down, creating a bad alignment of our spine. Then we wonder why our necks, back, shoulder hurt.

Take a look at this article, and share it with others.

Take care of your health,

Taking a Break.....from working out

Wow! a Personal trainer, someone who just ABSOLUTELY Loooooves to train, workout out hard core, feels empty when NOT working out......

is taking a break from training???!!!

Yes! Yes, I am taking this week off from training, giving my body a break and going back hard next week. Does this mean I will gain weight, lose my gains, and let myself go? NO, its just a week. It didn't take me a week to get results, so nor will it take me a week to lose it all.

Why am I taking this time away from training if I love it so much? My reason is because I have been pushing myself TOO much. Most days working out twice in a day, going heavy strength training then followed by intense high intensity training. And lately no matter how much sleep I've been getting, I have been So damn tired. Yes when I work out, afterwards I feel great, I feel awake and energized....but then it goes away and I'm back to tired.
So much so, that honestly I gave myself more rest days last week than I usually do. and for me "Rest days" is SUCH a challenge, because I feel I HAVE to get my training in, even if its short, or I will DIE!!! I even work out in the weekend, but this past weekend I lacked motivation and quite frankly didnt care if I missed my workouts. I DID however train Legs on Monday, in intensions of going back hard this week. But, I said to myself, "I think I'm just gonna leave it at that for this week, let my body rest and just go back at it next week".
And a big part of my lack of motivation and no energy is also because I'm getting sick. Now, normally I work out even when sick, as long as I have the energy. But I dont go as heavy as I normally do.
But this time its different, I can just feel it in my body, that it just doesn't want to work out. It wants and NEEDS the rest. And I am going to practice what I preach, and "listen to the body". Letting it rest, recover. Then going back at it next week.

Is there such a thing as "Over training"?

YES! My case is an example. The body NEEDS its rest and recovery time. During a workout, you train your body, strength train and do high intensity training to change the body, to build lean muscle. But the body doesn't change During a work changes and develops during Recovery time. Its during that time while the body is at rest where all the magic happens.
NOW, I am not saying to workout One day, give yourself 5 days of rest then workout your second day and that's it. No, no, no. That won't work either. You do need at least 3-4 days of exercise in your week to see greater and faster results. I am saying, know how to balance it out.
Give your body ample time to recover from your past workout before you work it out again. Especially if you do full body workouts.

Can you workout when you are sick?

Yes and no. As I mentioned before, I usually do workout when I'm sick. But that's usually because I only have a sore throat and congestion. If my head hurts I usually turn it down a notch and just focus on my body moving. A light workout, could still be a great workout. You need to be able to feel Good when working out, and actually feel a bit better after you have completed the workout.
You need to be the one to decide if your body can accomplish the task of working out.
If you are sick where you just can't get up and your energy is completely gone and just feel heavy, etc....DO NOT workout! Just rest it off. Maybe try walking around a bit and see how you feel. If you are really sick, the walking alone is strainious.
So you have to be the judge of if your body is up and willing to go through a training session.

And here is my advice:

If you feel your body needs rest....Let it rest! Don't force it. Because if you force it, you won't get the best out of that workout. You want to be able to get the most out of your workouts. But if its just going to make you feel worse, then lay back down, rest. See how you feel the next day. Sometimes you may need a couple days of rest. And thats OK.
If this is the case, make sure you don't lay around eating like CRAP the whole enitre time that you are resting. heck, most likely you won't really have an appetitie. Just make sure to drink lots of fluids, try to get some good foods in your system to fuel it up and help with recovery. Chicken soup can never go wrong when sick ;)

So LISTEN to your body. (Which is my own advice that I will finally take).

 Stay Healthy,

Are you at work Hunched over right now?!

Most of America has a Desk job. Yes you get to sit your butt down on (hopefully) a cozy chair....
How is your back feeling after that long desk job you have?

I bet chances are you hunch over your desk to type on the computer, either at your  job or at home.
Even if you Don't have a "desk job", how is your posture when you drive, when you are texting??

Most likely your shoulders are rounded and you are hunched over.
Heck, While writing this I just reminded myself of my posture when I noticed I was all hunched over.

So sit up straight, pull those shoulders back, expose that chest and check out this video!!

This video demonstrates one of my favorite exercises to help pull the shoulders back, strengthen the back and shoulders while working to correct that constant hunching over.

Don't have resistance bands?

Go to your local Walmart, Target, even Marshalls, TJ Maxx and Ross. They are a cheap but super effective exercise equipment that you can use for just about any body part. And can take on the go with you.

Happy Training!

There are no shortcuts

It will not be easy! If it were, we would all be fit. 

The truth is, we as Americans are one of the most obese and sick nations in the entire world! We live in a society that promises us quick fixes and fast solutions to long term problems.  We are quick to take a pill instead of doing the work needed to fix the solution on our own, even though we are capable of so much more than we give ourselves credit for. We want to reap the benefits without putting in the work: immediate gratification.
Those of us who live a healthy lifestyle have made a concerted effort to fit exercise into our daily schedule. We all have the same 24 hours  in a day but what you do within those 24 hours is your own choice. We too can make the excuse that we are too tired to exercise due to working a 8 or 10 hour shift or that there's a TV show that we need to watch, but we, on our own, decide that being healthy is more important than Keeping up with the Kardashians. I have no sympathy for people who make excuses like "I have no time" you can get a workout in just a few minutes using a tabata method (which is a 4 minute high intensity interval workout).

 I also don't like hearing people make excuses for poor nutrition and blaming it on lack of time, you can easily make a healthy meal and bring it to work with you instead of going to a fast food joint or eating microwave meals. Good eating starts with a proper breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as some good snacks and then eliminate as much wasted calories as possible. A simple example could be substituting water (with lemon) for soda or drinking regular coffee (no sugar) instead of a 1200 calorie sugar and syrup (and chemicals) filled specialty coffee drink from an expensive barista shop. There are so many ways you can make small changes that together add up to a large change over time. Stevia instead of sugar, Greek yogurt instead of sour-cream, and in some cases, mayonnaise are just two very simple swaps as an example. Yes you will have to consistently watch what you eat to truly be healthy, you will never be able to out work a poor diet, you also have to make sure you have healthy, consistent sleeping patterns as well as proper, consistent exercise routines. 

Did you notice the word consistent? No amount of exercise can outwork poor nutrition. Set aside a time of the day that you KNOW you can be doing something to better yourself and schedule that time to fit in a workout or some sort of exercise. Most of us fail because we fail to plan. You will not get fit in a day, just like you didn't get fat in a day, this is a lifestyle change for the truly committed if you want to be healthy. The way I see diet and exercise is "healthcare" we make the choice to better ourselves, increasing strength and flexibility while increasing the efficiency of our immune system to avoid the need to visit doctors so often, which is what I consider "sickcare". Those who workout regularly tend to get sick less than those who do not. Get the blood flowing, release those endorphins and start feeling great. The first week or two is the hardest. Your body will reject the extra work, you're going to be sore...but push through! Workout even when you are sore, and your body will not only begin to accept the workouts but start rewarding you. More endurance, increased strength and best of all: CONFIDENCE! Your confidence levels will soar higher than ever, and your immune system will reward you with a new vigor that fights off sickness better than you've ever seen. So just stop the excuses, get through the work and in a few months you'll look back at where you began and be proud of where you are. Just don't quit!

 Start slow or start fast,  just start now! Just make sure you stay consistent!  Consistency is the only way to reap the rewards and benefits. Otherwise you will be on the perpetual roller coaster ride of ups and downs...two steps forward two steps back getting nowhere fast. Commit to this lifestyle and be prepared to put in the hard work necessary  and you too can be fit and healthy. You don't have anybody to compete against other than yourself. Every day you should strive to be just a little bit better than you were yesterday.

Stay Active to be Fit!

What does it take to become Healthy and Fit?
Do you need fancy machines, the latest most expensive technology?
Do you need to be in Great shape to begin exercising?

Most people fail to even begin their "Fitness Journey" because they can't afford a gym membership, they may be intimated to join a gym, or they simply just don't know what to do.
What does it take to get fit, what do you need in order to get started on this journey?
Take one look in the mirror......YOU, that is all you need!
We as trainers do not expect you to come in and get right into the advanced level workouts.
We ALL start at the very beginning and we progress our way up. But how do we Start?
Get Moving! If you are not physically active and want to start working out and improving your health, why not go walking every day. Granted this alone will not achieve the biggest results, but its a Start! You are now moving, you are doing what our bodies were intended to do.
Our bodies were designed to Move!

Our bodies were designed to perform the following Functional Movement patterns:
Step/Step up

Now, for someone who does not exercise and reads this would think; "This is a workout!"
Yes and No. All of these movement patterns are what we do in Every day life. If you think about it, you perform all these patterns through out the day. And out bodies were designed to move in such manners.
Why do we incorporate these movement patterns into our training? Simple, so we can correct form and make every day activities, and sports much more productive and have it be less injury prone.

So, get started slowly. Start by walking around the block. If you have time to sit and watch tv, you have time to walk. This is a Great start.

For more information, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
We are here to help! :)

Welcome to Metahuman Fitness

Hello everyone,
We wanted to introduce ourselves and let you in how how Metahuman Fitness began.
I am happy to say that Metahuman Fitness was founded and is run by myself, Lisett, and my husband, Dave. We are a Power couple that have the same love and passion in Health and Fitness. Together, we want to change as many lives as we can, Not just helping people to get Healthy and Fit, but also Empowering Them!
We are based in Vista, CA (northern San Diego). But we moved to California around 4 years ago from New York. Dave was born and raised in NY, and I was born in Chile (South America), and moved to NY when I was 6 years old.
Dave was a personal Trainer back in NY, and had a goal to start up his own gym.....but unfortunately, Life got in the way and his goal/dream was put to the back end. We both worked at jobs we didn't have a passion for. They were just "jobs". But that goal to start up a gym was always in Dave's heart.
I have my own story, how I became a Personal Trainer. And you can read that full story Here.
My new found deep love for Fitness helped fire up Dave's old dream. And together we worked to create Metahuman Fitness. It was just an idea back in 2013, but finally in August,2014 we opened up our doors to our new gym, our Metahuman Fitness Gym!
We are a Hybrid gym. We specialize in Weight loss and Strength and Conditioning. Incorporating Strength Training, H.I.I.T Training (High Intensity Interval Training), Strong Man Training, as well as Speed and Agility Training.
Our members are a wide range; from parents who want to get healthy and fit to be able to keep up with their children and set a good example. Women who want to lose weight, gain curves and gain Confidence to be able to finally wear that dress they always wanted to wear. And Adult Athletes who want to improve in their sports.
All of our members are Superheros! They each come in, Push, and work Extremely hard and we couldn't be more Proud of them. They leave our door with a smile and Amazed at the things they are capable of doing. And that is our goal! We are here to help "Unleash your inner Superhero!"

"My Fitness Journey" -by Lisett Daniela

Hi everyone,
Lisett Daniela here. I am Lead Trainer and Owner of  Metahuman Fitness. I wanted to take a little time to tell you all my Story.
This may be a little long, but I feel that my story will help you all in your journey and help you to get to know the person behind Metahuman Fitness (
As you can see from the pictures, I wasn't always fit. I was born with severe asthma, inherited from my dads side of the family. I was the kid that always walked around pumping her inhaler. Physical activities were Out of the question. Even walking was tough for me. I couldn't even laugh a lot because that would trigger my asthma. So no physical activities, PLUS not eating right resulted in me growing up not healthy. As a kid, I didn't care how I looked. But as I grew up I started to Hate myself.
I went through the bad phases that I hope NO other woman (and man) puts themselves through. I started to make myself throw up. I ate, ate a lot, then went right to the bathroom. Luckily, I stopped doing that before I really hurt myself.
In my 20s I started to incorporate exercise. I had my vcr workout tapes (YES, VCR....I'm that old! lol) and STRUGGLED through the exercise routines. Shoot, the warm ups alone were my workouts! The asthma made it SO hard for me to get through it.....But I pushed through! I did it in a negative manner though.....I yelled at myself, I banged on my chest. It was truly a tough time for me. Physically and emotionally.
I didn't give up......
I kept doing my exercises. at the time I lived with my mom, and she knew if my door was closed and the music was blasting I was "exercising".
Through exercise, I BEAT Asthma. From birth all the way up to my mid 20s I had asthma, and always had to be hospitalized every year for severe asthma attacks.
I BEAT it!! I haven't had asthma in almost 6 years now.
Yes, I was now working out, BUT I was not eating right. I basically worked out so I can Eat whatever I wanted. So my body never changed. At 26 years old, I found the love of my life, who is now my husband and partner in crime. He is a 6' tall handsome man. We ate the SAME! I am a 5'4 woman, eating like a 6' man!!!! Which is why I looked the way I did in 2011. And I was getting worse. That 2011 picture is what opened up my eyes. I still after all the years, HATED myself. There was no self love whatsoever. I vowed to myself that turning 30 years old will be the BEST time of my life. I did not dread turning 30, because I told myself I will finally LOVE myself, and be PROUD of myself!!
I started working HARD. I started Lifting. I started working on my eating habits. I started a food Journal so I can keep track of everything I ate, and omitted the bad and added the good. I did it the RIGHT WAY. I didn't starve myself, I simply started eating HEALTHY.
The combination of training <------Training like an athlete, and eating healthy is what finally made me change!
I feel POWERFUL, I feel PROUD, I LOVE myself and all that my body can accomplish......and I am NOT DONE YET!!!

My story is to tell you all we ALL Start somewhere.
You may look at me and say something like "Oh, its easy for her." "I wish I can do the things she does" But let me tell old self, the 18 year old girl would say the sames things about my 32 year old self.
My beginning was INCREDIBLY tough for me. EVERYTHING was a challenge. But that is why its called the "beginning".
If you continue, if you keep working, if you allow the TIME to do its WILL CONQUER!!
This isn't an over night process, its a LIFE STYLE. This is your life, and your fitness journey will continue all your life.
One day you will look back at your beginning, and you will be SO PROUD of all the things you have accomplished, of all the things your body can now do.
Just PLEASE, keep on working. Don't give up. Its a hard journey, but you must FIGHT!

I hope my story can inspire others. We are all in this together.
Keep on Keeping on....Fight, WIN!
