It’s a fact that only 8% of the American population commits to a year round exercise program, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that the U.S. is ranked # 1 for the nation with highest obesity (with 30% of population obese) based on 2011 statistic. Top that off with the fact that the U.S. is the world leader in soft drink consumption and leads the world with the most fast food chains. Heart disease is the # 1 killer in America for both men and women. Nearly one-third of ALL U.S. deaths are because of heart disease. According to 2011 Nation Master Statistics, the U.S. high obesity rate goes hand-in-hand with the U.S. being one of the unhealthiest nations when looking at disease and life expectency statistics – U.S. is # 13 in world for most heart disease deaths, # 9 in cancer deaths, # 5 in circulatory disease deaths, and #49 with nation with longest life expectancies.

Jack LaLanne always said, “Fitness is King and Nutrition is Queen.” Alicia Weber will add, “When they don’t rule, expect a nation of downfall.”

On the contrary, Japan proves to be a nation where Fitness is King and Nutrition is Queen and they are a nation that reigns as the healthiest in the world. The 2011 Nation Master Statistics show Japan is the least obese nation, nation with least heart disease (as well as nation with least cancer and circulatory diseases), and they are #5 nation for longest life expectancy!

Japan is a country where reaching over 100 years old is common place (especially in Okinawa). Japan is a country where the people believe in taking care of themselves and that is their lifestyle. They are the largest consumers of fish in the world and of whole soy, seaweed, and green tea. They monitor serving sizes and they stop eating before they are full. They also eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Japan believes in aiming for a low stress life with daily exercises and some of their favorites include Aikido, Tabata Method, and Japanese Yoga.

Many Americans would rather not exercise and not eat right and just let the doctor take care of them. Well, that is not a smart choice as according to Commonwealth Fund, the U.S. ranks last among seven countries for effective healthcare. You will pay a lot of money and not get the results.

Dr. Chauncey Crandall, a renowned interventional cardiologist says, “YOU save yourself! Heart disease is unnecessary and what causes heart disease causes other degenerative diseases.”

It is proven that a diet high in anti-inflammatory foods along with regular daily exercise is your best weapon against disease and having a long, happy, healthy life. So why not do what is right to have a long, happy, healthy life? Do you lack motivation and direction? If so, you have come to the right place. This is home to Alicia “The Machine” Weber – holder of over 100 official exercise world records. Alicia is totally wild about exercise and Alicia has the education and experience to guide people in the right direction to reach health goals effectively and in the shortest amount of time.

Alicia with 4 Record Setting Fitness Trainees
Carol a 70 yr old said, “I spent a lot of money and time on physical therapy and I only improved my strength by 20 percent, but after a week with Alicia’s instructions I improved 80% and I feel I will be totally where I want to be on Alicia’s program in a short period of time. Wow, the results are unbelievable and the price is right! You have nothing to lose!”

Chris a 25 yr old said, “Alicia knows what I need for exercise and nutrition. She is very thorough with the nutrition consult. I am totally happy with her expertise. She truly cares about getting me to my best! I have her for motivation & follow her personalized program & I feel great!”

Alicia says, “I am an American, but certainly not American in the way I eat and exercise. I do not eat fast food. I rarely drink soft drinks, only ginger ale on occasion. I am REALLY W-I-L-D about exercise and because I exercise so much, I can not eat foods that aren’t healthy or else I will become sick. Due to the intensity of my exercising, my body is only inviting of alkaline foods. There is NO such thing as splurging or eating bad as a reward for hard workouts.”

Alicia had 3 major big, long stamina goals for 2012 and she achieved ALL of them. 1.) She set the world record for the most total body exercise records in 7 days in a row (2 of the exercises had to be 1 hour in duration). 2.) She then set the world record for fastest time to set 50 total body exercise records. 3.) Finally, she set the world record for the fastest time to set 100 total body exercise world records (where at least 3 records had to be at least 1 hour in duration).

I ask Alicia if she should feel tired and Alicia answered, “No, I am not tired. The more I do the more energized I become and I couple all my physical efforts with healthy eating, so both together are a very empowering combo for my body.”

Alicia would like to empower YOU to a NEW YOU as she does this over and over with her own body and current trainees. Alicia will work with YOU on YOUR goals and maximize your potential. The following are the videos documenting her 3 official long stamina records.

Official RecordSetter World Record where Alicia set 22 exercise records in 7 days in a row (upto 1hr duration covering upper body, lower body, and core exercises for records) on August 10-16, 2012.

“You have to take care of your 640 muscles, and the number one thing is exercise. You can eat perfectly but if you don’t exercise, you cannot get by.”
– Jack Lalanne

Official Recordsetter World Record where Alicia broke the fastest time to set 50 exercise records (which she originally set in 62 days). Now, Alicia is down to 45 days (Averaging more than 1 record a day!!) completed from
July 17, 2012 – August 31, 2012.

“You should do it against the clock. Say you are going to do 30 laps in 15 minutes. Then you try to do it each day a little faster. That is putting demands on the body, and that is how you build up. You keep up your energy instead of going downhill.”
– Jack Lalanne

Official Recordsetter World Record where Alicia completes 100 exercise records the fastest covering upper body, lower body, and core exercises AND for each of the 3 areas, at least one record of 1hr duration must be set. It took 107 days from May 17, 2012 – August 31, 2012.

“How do you build up your bank account? By putting something in it everyday.Your health account is no different. What I do today, I am wearing tomorrow. If I put inferior foods in my body today, I’m going to be inferior tomorrow, it’s that simple.”
– Jack Lalanne

Losing Fat Another Way

By: Carol Weber Images below are copyrighted to

After my pregnancies, I used a weight loss method that was very successful for me. Now, to my surprise, I see that it is a method more commonly used than I would have expected!
Upon awakening, I would have coffee with fat free cream. Then, I would “jump” on my rebounder, also known as a mini-trampoline. I would listen to music and usually jump for 15 to 20 minutes.

Here are the important points for this weight loss method:

1. Your body was in a “fast” during sleep. Now you are burning the food from the previous night.

2. You are speeding up your food metabolism which will continue into the day.

3. You are burning fat NOT carbohydrates. If you ate breakfast and then jumped or exercised aerobically, you would burn the carbohydrates from the breakfast. But since you are still in the fasting state, your body burns the fat. This fat-burning state is called ketosis.

4. Jumping on a rebounder strengthens the ankles, improves the lymphatic system, helps bone density, and improves your balance. However, any aerobic activity works just as well for the weight loss.

Jump to Lose Fat Another Way!
After jumping I would be very careful with my meals. I would not eat until lunch time, and I would have balanced meals with low fat and low sugar. I would eat sensibly. I lost 30 pounds using this method.

If you don’t want to use a rebounder, you can do another aerobic exercise. An important point to remember is that exercising in the fasting state really increases fat-burning. CAUTION: Do not use this method if you are diabetic.

You have to huff and puff to get tight and tough!
Conditioning is vital for risk-free exercise. If you want to jump, start with 5 minutes a day, 5 days a week, for 1 to 2 weeks. Then, after 2 weeks, increase to 10 minutes a day, 5 days a week for 1 to 2 weeks. Use this conditioning method, gradually increasing the exercising time. These days I jump for 30 minutes at a time, 3 to 5 days a week. Otherwise, I go to the gym and use an aerobic machine there. Whatever I do, I use the “fasting” until lunch. Of course, drinking water is vital during the exercise session.

Alicia Weber Reveals The Best Anti-Inflammatory Foods

By:  Alicia Weber

A plant-based diet is your winning way to wellness!  Human blood is alkaline with a 7.2 pH.  When it comes to your blood and food consumption, one thing is true and that is two of a feather flock together!  Just as your blood has alkaline pH your body wants an alkaline pH in the food it consumes!

More Alkaline = Less Inflammation (foods that are alkaline and fight inflammation are fruits, vegetables, and fish)

More Acid = More Inflammation (foods working against blood pH are anything you eat with a face except fish because of the omega 3 fatty acid)

ALL fruits and vegetables are anti-inflammatories.  Some are considered more potent than others though.  Vitamins and minerals are important to fight inflammation as the one I highly recommend that is an excellent anti-inflammatory as well as an anti-aging supplement is Triveratrol Plus containing ResVinol-25 (60 Softgels).  This is a top supplement from a top-notch doctor – Dr. Whitaker. The reason this supplement is a very potent anti-inflammatory is due to its 3 Key Ingredients:

1.  Tumeric (known for anti-inflammatory qualities)

2.  Aloe Vera (plant known as fountain of youth for healing qualities)

3.  Resveratrol (dosage in vitamin equivalent to 170 glasses of red wine!)

Additionally, Herbasway HerbaGreen Tea Original Flavor 2 oz is a terrific anti-inflammatory, which I take every night before bed as it also helps prevent cavities and strengthen teeth.

Of all the plant-based foods, the Indian Goose Berry takes the 1st place prize in being the most potent!  As it exceeds the anti-inflammatory potency of the 2nd and 3rd place blueberries and pomegranates for anti-inflammatory benefits.  However, no need to focus on the 3 in the winner’s circle as the goal should be to eat a wide variety of colorful fruits and vegetables everyday for your anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory responses to be in top form and out do the inflammation and aging process!

*On a side note: If you are not eating a lot of meats (i.e. red meats as they have the essential vitamin B 12), then you need a vitamin with B 12.  Vitamin B 12 is essential in red blood cell production and must be part of the diet and if not getting it in a food source, then vitamin is neccessary. I stay stocked up with Emergen-C Vitamin C Fizzy Drink Mix, 1000 mg, Tropical, 0.3-Ounce Packets (Pack of 30) and I take one packet a day for my vitamin C and B vitamins.

Truth About Supplements: Drink and Die, or Eat and Cry!

By:  Alicia Weber

Would you drink or eat a supplement that promised to give you a better body or a performance edge?  Well Think TWICE…if you want to stay alive….

Watch what happens when Madalina drinks a so called “powerful performance enhancing drink”

Consumers need to be SMART and NOT be fooled by supplements that may say “All Natural” or “Perfectly Safe” or “This supplement can prevent, treat, or cure any disease… or any other exaggerated claim”  These are RED FLAGS and don’t be pulled to buy any of these supplements with these statements.  Thoroughly evaluate labels and check for the following 12 devastating ingredients and if found in a supplement, keep it on the shelf to rot!!

She took 2 inches off her waist, lost 6lbs, & gained a lifestyle change in just 14 days!

Jenni was the lone participant in the Inaugural 14 Day Fat Flush Fitness Rush where she took 2 inches off her waist and lost 6 lbs!!  She calls this 2-week program a life changer! 

Congratulations Jenni!!


Now, let’s talk to Jenni about her 14-day journey with “Fat Flush Fitness Rush”.

Q.  Knowing that you have done Weight Watchers and other fat loss programs before, how does “Fat Flush Fitness Rush” compare? 

Jenni answers,  “It doesn’t!  Fat Flush Fitness Rush is in a league all of its own!  It’s the hardest I worked in 2-weeks straight. I was capable of doing everything, but it is twice the intensity given that workouts are on the beach!  I get twice more out of the program though!”

Q.  Would you recommend this program? 

Jenni answers, “Yes, absolutely – you have to already be living an active lifestyle though or you are kidding yourself. If you are already active, you will get that much more confidence!  If you aren’t already living an active lifestyle, you are setting yourself up for failure.  If you can’t hang with the BIG DOGS, stay on the porch!” 

Jenni adds, “If you aren’t bringing your “A Game” don’t try!  Fat Flush Fitness Rush is NOT for the weak-minded.”




Q.  You were the lone participant for this inaugural program.  What was your motivation to do it?

Jenni answers,  “I trust Alicia with my workouts and nutrition plans and I know I will get success and lifestyle change with Alicia and I am ready to go!!”

Jenni answers,
“For the 1st time in 20 years I went 2-weeks without Diet Soda.  I replaced my candy and sweets with fruit and yogurt and I am satisfying my sweet tooth that way!  I used to snack after dinner and that bad habit went out the window!  This 2-week program has improved my sleep patterns and my body wants to be on a schedule (no staying up late) and it carries over to increased endurance in my workouts.  I couldn’t manage 1 suicide run on Day 1.  By Day 13, I did 5 suicide runs in a row and with each one my times got faster!  I absolutely want to continue this healthy lifestyle and my taste buds and muscles want me to continue too!!”

Q.  Have you been able to adopt some new healthy habits? 

Jenni answers, ” I call this Fat Flush Fitness Rush a “2-week Lifestyle Changer”.  In 2-weeks time I got the tools I needed to continue with a new healthy lifestyle.  There’s NO BAND AID SLAPPING – There’s NO QUICK FIX! ”







Jenni’s final words, “Fat Flush Fitness Rush is about real positive long-lasting change!”  Keep Your “A Game” ON follow Alicia on Facebook at Alicia on Facebook

12 Tips for Better Eating

By:  Carol Weber

Hello Friends,

I recently was surprised to learn about the number of people who are bedridden or must be in a wheelchair. I was surprised because many of these people are in their 60’s! They have no pathological diseases. Their fate came about due to lack of exercise. They all were “couch potatoes” and, subsequently, became overweight which eventually led to atrophy of their muscles.

Just hearing about these persons gave me a sense of fear. If fear is a motivator to make me exercise more, then bring it on! Most of our health problems come from lack of exercise. We were made to move those 600+ muscles that we have. And, of course, the other problem that we have is our diet!

All of the newsletters I get from the medical experts say the same thing: our health is determined from our life style, NOT our genetics. Of course, there are exceptions. People who have thalassemia, sickle cell anemia, and other genetic disorders are truly limited by their genetics. I had to prepare blood transfusions for these children and adults on a regular basis. But the majority of us can choose our fates.


Dr. Jim Weber & Carol Weber

So, with this in mind, here’s a list of tips for making better diet choices.

1.)  Eat at least 1 salad daily. Lots of raw vegetables are filling & provide fiber and essential vitamins & minerals.

2.)  Completely cut sugars & simple carbohydrates from your diet. They create a “glucose–insulin–low blood sugar–more glucose desired” cycle.

3.)  Shore up on fiber—it’s filling so you’ll eat less. High fiber foods include vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, seeds, whole grains. Dr. Agatston, the cardiologist from the South Beach Diet, says a slice of bread should have 3 grams of fiber.

4.)  Soup is filling. Have clear broth-based soup as an appetizer rather than a creamy-based soup.

5.)  Make sure protein is included in your meals & snacks: chicken, turkey, tofu, low fat cheeses.

6.)  Drink plenty of water.

7.)  Eat an apple 15 minutes before a meal. Researchers have found that it cuts caloric intake by 200 calories.

8.)  Control portions—use a smaller plate.

9.)  Use xylitol-sweetened gum or mints. It satisfies between meals.

10.)  Allow yourself a piece of dark chocolate if you must have a treat.

11.)  Use a food journal. Being honest and writing out what is consumed can be very revealing and helpful.

12.)  Green tea is an excellent product to aid in weight loss, and it has many health benefits. I get a product which is flavored with no caffeine. A dropper is equal to 15 cups of green tea. You add a full dropper to your beverage. Go on line to check it out: or phone 1-800-672-7322. Next time I hope to discuss more about green tea and other products.

*Remember, don’t be afraid to huff and puff and get your heart rate up! Sweating doesn’t count!

Alicia Weber’s 2009-2010 Sports Highlights

In addition to the sports highlights below, I am a strength and endurance world record holder with a variety of physical fitness world records.

January 31, 2010 Southern Sprints Indoor Rowing World Championships
Alicia Weber- Silver Medalist 500m, Indoor Rowing Southern Championships

In my newest sport, I competed in my first major indoor rowing competition and captured the silver medal in the 500m sprint. The Southern Sprints Indoor Rowing Championships serves as a World Qualifier for the C.R.A.S.H. B Sprints Indoor Rowing World Championship held every year in Boston.

December 6, 2009 Xterra World Half-Marathon Championships Kualoa Ranch, Oahu, HI

During a week in Oahu, HI, which included an invitation to train with the U.S. Marines, I competed in what is to be considered the “World’s Toughest Half-Marathon”. There are many factors, which make the event so tough including 1. Elevation – 2,900ft mountain climb 2. Competitors aren’t allowed to see or practice on the course till the morning of the event! 3. Temperature and Terrain Changes – The temperature at the start of the race was 65 degrees, but by the first mile on the black lava rock it escalated to nearly 90 degrees. By mile 11, runners held onto a rope to run down a slippery, muddy, narrow path. I can surely say with my many years of running on the elite circuit that this truly was the world’s toughest half-marathon! I became very dehydrated, but still finished as 40th Woman in the World. A total of 393 runners were in this world championship run.

November 8, 2009 First Annual SUP Poker Run Siesta Key Beach, Florida

Alicia Weber - 1st time on Stand Up Paddle Board

In an event that is about winning a game of poker as SUP paddlers chased to each boat grabbing a card, I was the 2nd fastest female finisher. However, I didn’t win the poker game. It was my first time on a stand up paddle board and my first SUP race. SUP is the fastest growing sport in Florida!


June 13 -14, 2009  Sprint Kayak and Open Swimming Championships


Alicia Weber - Gold Medalist 500m, 2009 Florida State Games

I did back-to-back Championships in 2 different sports that use the same muscle groups and I had great success! On June 13th I took the gold medal in the 500m K-1 sprint kayak race at the Florida State Games and then I captured the silver medal in the 200m K-1 sprint kayak race. The following day, I finished 14th overall out of the men and women in the Master’s Swimming 1-mile Open Water Championships in Ft. Myers, Florida.
