“I was finally getting back to a regular schedule when it all started to change. I was working out 5 days a week, eating better, balancing work, it was all coming together. But then COVID-19 happened. First the schools closed, then companies shifted their employees to work from home, and finally all business, including both my gyms, were closed. That last one sucked. How am I going to keep improving without a place to get my squats, and deadlifts, and power cleans in?
Success is a journey, not a destination. And Coaching by G is about being there for you throughout your journey. In this blog, Coach Giulia not only shares fitness training and nutrition tips but motivation and personal stories for inspiration.
Here we are in the midst of a global quarantine. For some people working from home or schooling from home is a relief, social distancing is already a preferred way of life. For sure, this generation is adept at virtual social gatherings. As an introvert, I can get behind a great degree of social distancing. Some people are truly extroverts, though, and they really are having a hard time feeling confined and alone.

“Giulia’s training is invaluable to me, especially during this time when we’re all stuck in our houses. She creates custom, at-home workouts for me that I know I would never put together myself. And she holds me accountable when I think that I’m too busy or too tired to do them. G’s training is going to help me get through this.” – Michelangelo D’Agostino
There are some supplements that may keep you healthy by supporting your immune system. As always, purchase the highest quality. Your body is your only asset.
Dear Coaching by G Community,
The health and welfare of our clients and our coaches is always the top priority. Coronavirus is a profound concern for many people in our community. We want to let our members know what measures we are taking and more importantly what steps each of you can take to help prevent the spread of the virus.
“A journey of a thousand steps must begin with a single step.” Lao-tzu
In light of the current situation with the COVID-19 viral scare, a piece about healthy habits – and specifically keeping healthy habits during a pandemic – is just what the doctor ordered. As a PhD Biochemist, I am up to date on the available literature regarding the virus and know a lot about viruses in general. Without going into the mechanisms of viral infection, I would love to remind everyone that the best defense is a great offense–especially in the case of a virus. If you are healthy, your job is to stay healthy. If you are unfortunately in the midst of an illness, especially cancer treatment and any and all respiratory illness, please follow the orders from your attending physician. This blog is not intended to be a cure recommendation; it is a reminder to maintain or begin or keep healthy habits that support your immune system.
Do you want to lose weight fast? (Who doesn’t?) Honestly, by the time you decide to change your body, you are ready for your body to be changed. Who wants to wait for what you want, when you already know EXACTLY what you want? I talk about this all the time, ad nauseam: “First you have to know what you want.”
“2020 marks a new beginning for me. I’m enthusiastically joining Body By G and I’m all in. I’m working at the studio a number of hours here and there, wherever and whenever G. needs a boost or a helping hand. At the same time, I’m jumping in as a training client, getting my body into a new sort of shape and strength–of all the fitness and health and sport I’ve engaged in throughout my life, I haven’t had much (if any) coaching on weightlifting specifically, and I’ve never had the ongoing support of a training coach. What better way to learn the forms that I’d like to be able to help the clients at the gym with than by making myself vulnerable and taking on this new practice. I’ve also launched a course of study program with ACE Fitness to fulfill a certification for a Personal Trainer.
“I became a client of Giulia two years ago. I was planning a long, cross country bike ride and my wife was convinced that I would die on some steep ride through the mountains and my answer was to say that I would sign up with a physical trainer to prepare for the ride (five months in the future). It was a bit of a dodge on my part as I had assumed that my years of putting in thousands of miles of riding along with merely riding day by day during the trip would get me into shape as the ride progressed.
