A-list celebrity trainer Corey Calliet, reveals the 5 golden rules you need to follow to get in the best shape of your life. 

It isn’t every day you get advice from a name – or guy – as big as Corey Calliet.

The figure of pure muscle is the man responsible for whipping celebrities into their best shape. From changing lives as a trainer on Khloe Kardashian’s hit series ‘Revenge Body’, transforming Michael B Jordan into an absolute beast for Creed, Creed II and Black Panther, to having names like A$AP Rocky and John Boyega on speed dial, he is the walking Bible for all things fitness and diet related.

So it’s no denying he knows exactly what it takes to achieve – and stick – to any health goal. In fact, the fitness guru believes you can transform your body in as little as 30 days.

“If you’re doing it like you’re supposed to, in 30 days you’ll see results,” Calliet exclusively tells body+soul.

“It takes 21 days to create a habit and it takes about 21 days to see results, and not just small results – really starting to see something that’s going to impact you to keep going.”

Here are the rules you need to follow to make that happen:

1. Make healthy choices, not unrealistic ones

“Getting on a strict diet is almost destined for failure,” Calliet explains. Instead, he recommends to just make healthy choices.

“We know what healthy choices are – instead of fried get baked, instead of sugar get fruit. The best thing you can do is make perfect decisions. Then once you get that and you change your eating habits, then go into what you can get on a strict diet.”

2. Starvation won’t help you lose weight the right way

Let’s get one thing straight: you will lose weight when you don’t eat enough, but it’s not the weight you want to be losing.

“Yes, you will lose fat, but your muscles will deplete and decrease, and you will rebound all of that,” Calliet says.

He emphasises it’s the mistake people make repeatedly, regardless of how many times they’re told “doing too much too fast” is not the solution.

“Remember, always train and transform your body as a marathon, not a sprint”.

3. A trainer is your BFF when it comes to strength training

There’s nothing worse than revving yourself up with motivation, only to back out because you’re intimidated by a bunch of buff guys bench pressing at the gym – which is why hiring a trainer can be your best friend.

“Anyone who is afraid of going to the gym and doing weight training, you need to get someone who is going to hold you accountable. Get someone to help you get through that stage of not knowing the fear of going to the gym and seeing these people next to you that are so intimidating.”

If a trainer isn’t your cup of tea, signing up to classes is the simplest way to ease your way into a regular exercise regimen you’ll actually stick to.

“Find something that you like doing, whether it’s cycling, CrossFit training, weight training.”

4. Invest in a fitness tracker

Fitness trackers have come a long way, and Calliet swears by his Huawei GT2 Watch for tracking everything from his workouts to sleep.

“It holds me accountable for being a trainer – you can’t out-cheat yourself, you can’t cheat when you have the numbers in front of your face.”

5. Carbs are neither good nor bad

In a world where everyone seems to think carbs are single-handedly the culprit behind your weight loss failure, Calliet sets it straight: “Carbs can be our friend and our enemy – it depends on how you use them.”

The personal trainer admits he’s “not against low carbohydrates” and believes “the body can survive off fats and a sufficient amount of protein,” but incorporating exercise into the picture greatly influences your carb intake.

“If you’re going to be training really hard, doing any type of hard weight training, cross training or calisthenics, or anything that’s dynamic, carbs will definitely help you repair the muscles and give you energy,” he continues.

“Instead of only converting sugar, it will actually give you the energy and speed up your metabolism to burn more fat.”
