I’m Lyzabeth Lopez, registered holisitic, nutritionist, award winning master trainer and the creator of the Hourglass Workout.
I’m also a PRO Natural Fitness Model and Fitness and Stage Coach with six years of post secondary education in Health Education and Nutrition with an additional 40 certification in health and fitness. I’ve trained hundreds of thousands of women world-wide though my programs including my TrainWithLyzabeth.com on-line training program. I take my job very seriously as I believe in changing lives and teaching people how to take back their power when it comes to their body.
Now, while I’ve dedicated my life to fitness & education from the age of 14 when I got my very first fitness certification, there was a point in my life when my once flat belly ballooned out, out of nowhere. There were points that it looked like I had a basketball under my shirt, I just couldn’t understand it, at all! It was beyond frustrating, I felt I was eating well and working out, but I had this huge belly? I went to see doctors and they said I was the picture of health, but I knew something was wrong. It was at this point through research and frustration that I discovered holistic nutrition. I looked into it further and decided to enroll and went to study full time for two years. Holistic nutrition in a nutshell is the power of whole foods and understanding how your body reacts to food. From this program, I cured this belly bloat, and other issues I didn’t even realize that were related to food including headaches, acne, and low energy, and now, I have a six pack year round… check out my real-time SnapChats at LyzabethLopez where I post my daily workouts if you don’t believe me, but not just that, I feel really good. I have energy, I feel happy and most of all, the understanding of how my system works which allows me to look into what’s going on if I should ever get bloated, have trouble sleeping, or experience fatigue again, I’ll have an idea of what’s causing it and how to fix it.
Also, because I was a trainer who started out training athletes for fitness competitions, I’ve always been obsessed with creating perfect symmetry which to me, for women is the hourglass shape and for men is the V-taper. Both come down to a strong cinched waist. I used to just train for strength and got a bit of a boy figure with squared off hips and a very strong slightly thick core. I didn’t like this look, I knew I was very strong, but I’ve always liked a more feminine stong shape with curves. When I added a few years of studying and training of Mat Pilates, getting my level 4 Advanced Pilates Certification, I played with the repertoire and created my own. I do believe that it is from my special pilates techniques that you can do even when your walking around, which is what I still do to this day, that I changed the shape of my waist by learning to work with my breathing and my core. People ask if I wear a waist trainer, and my answer is no, I train my core properly which created a much better effect and is very healthy. I also share this techniques with you.
Now, my natural genetics are for me to be a heavier girl, if I start eating junk, trust me that my physique will start to pack on some fat, that’s just my genetics, so for me to be able to maintain a leaner physique all year took a lot of trial and error. Getting to this point of maintaining 14-18% bf while keeping my curves and a flat belly without feeling like I’m starving and enjoying yummy food that I like took a lot of testing and figuring things out. I’ve done low-carb, low-sugar, low-fat, low-calorie, I’ve been a cardio queen, ugh, it’s aggravating looking back. But, I have to say, going through it myself was the best thing for me to be able to help my clients because I knew how it felt and could empathize with their struggle. I really do feel that because I’ve been in that place trying to figure it all out that I’m able to help so many people to get to permanent changes to not only lose, weight and reshape their body, but to keep it off. Not just that, it’s funny that a huge population of my in-person clients actually quit their jobs as doctors, nurses, marketing excuct. Etc and become trainers when they were training under me. The transformations that they experience and actually understanding the body is so powerful and invigorating, that they just have to share this information with others too. This is actually how I first franchaised out my Hourglass Workout in-person program which is now 15 locaions in Canada and three locations in the USA. Almost all of my franchaisees are clients of mine, that were transformed, got excited, got certified and started teaching the system, and they are all just amazing at what they do and because they’ve also been there, they now change lives as well. Seeing this circle of healthy change and sharing is so magical and one of my favorite things.
The Flat Belly Project isn’t a workout video or a diet, it’s an educational tool for you to understand what is stopping you from having a flat belly or a six pack. It’s 10 chaptered audio recordings by me that will educate you on what is going on inside you that is stopping you from reaching your goal and will explain how to fix it to finally reach your goal for good! The old saying “give a man a fish, feed him for a day, teach a man to fish, feed a man for ever” comes to mind when I create my programs. I like to give you the power to understand how to make the changes. Once you have this information, weather you yo-yo up and down later on at Holiday season, you’ll have the key to the knowledge to not only, not gain much weight if any over the holidays, but to get it off fast again!
Not just that guys, the education part is great, but I also give you a detailed guide on how to follow the short eating plan to get to your flat belly and the more importantly the guide to maintain it. Please note, as a registered holistic nutritionist, this is not an ordinary diet, this is a diet that is meant to reduce inflammation, increase your energy, stop your bloating, gas, acne, fatigue, fight disease… and give you a flat belly just like it’s done for me and thousands of my clients. I know this may sound cliché but, this is really a system that can give you a flat belly forever!
