Introducing for 2022: Diet Trax and the Ultimate Fitness Level 7

At the end of the day, we all know that a successful fitness program requires two things, 1-working out, and 2-proper diet. Some would debate that one is more important that the other. I fall into the camp that believes working out is the foundational activity followed by a proper diet. Both are equally important to good health, but I would argue that working out must be priority number one. This is why the primary focus of HOTWORX will always be to provide the most effective workouts possible in the shortest amount of time necessary. The workout is where fitness begins. Then comes the diet.

That said…

Have you ever needed to begin a weight loss program but struggled with the vast abyss of nutritional options out there? Fitness dieting doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, it works much better when it remains simple. The math of weight loss is easy. You lose weight when you take in fewer calories than you burn off. All you need is consistency and a reasonable path to follow, and one that is sustainable over time.

Over the years of fitness that I have experienced, I have discovered that the most effective long term approach to dieting is to follow the 10% calorie deficit rule. What is that? Simply put, if you consume 10% less calories than you burn off each day on average, you will lose weight and shed fat in a sustainable way, and it will become a part of your fitness lifestyle. You can turn into a lean, fitness warrior machine if you take this approach. I am a believer in this because I do it myself and I have watched countless others achieve fitness success with this method.

What you need is a great app that keeps you on a 90 day challenge, is tied to your workouts, and helps you to track your daily calorie burn and calorie intake with a succinct and readable dashboard. The dashboard needs one main calorie progress bar and three supplemental progress bars for macros. The macros bars should let you see how well balanced your nutrition is in real time. We designed a great dashboard for Diet Trax! Diet Trax is your 90 Day Diet Challenge that is in sync with your 90 Day Workout Challenge. By the way, did you know it takes 90 days to form a good (or a bad) habit? Diet Trax will help you to form a good diet habit!

Diet Trax is a simple diet tool to compliment your training sessions, and one with technology that auto-syncs with your workout data too! For those studio goers who want to up their game to the ultimate level, HOTWORX will release this fitness tool to the market next week on January 1, 2022.

Now ready and on schedule for launch, this BURN OFF APP upgrade is the latest addition to the HOTWORX premium membership plan, Sweat Everywhere. Diet Trax and the ultimate fitness Level 7 will take your fitness where it has not gone before. Level 7 is for all of you fitness warriors who are chompin’ at the bit to jump start the new year.

Proper dieting depends on the fitness goal of the individual. However, there are some basic truths that cannot be denied when it comes to your nutritional intake. Most people struggle to maintain their most ideal fitness weight. For the vast majority, ideal weight requires weight loss and maintenance once the goal has been achieved.

In a world where people seem to change diets as often as they change socks, success can be found in consistency and simplification. I’m reminded of a scene in one of my favorite movies, Contact with Jodie Foster. Foster’s character, Ellie, was called to testify before congress, and in that scene one Senator used the term Occam's razor to make an argument that the most simple explanation tends to be the correct one. The website,, defines Occam’s razor as, “a scientific and philosophical rule that entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily which is interpreted as requiring that the simplest of competing theories be preferred to the more complex or that explanations of unknown phenomena be sought first in terms of known quantities.” (1) Most of us just call this the KISS principle, aka keep it simple stupid. Dieting advice has been “multiplied unnecessarily” for sure. Let’s stop the madness.

Diet Trax makes it simple again. The key to losing weight is easy math. When you consume less calories than you burn you will lose weight. There is no need to complicate this. You just need a tool for consistency and simplicity. Diet Trax integrates the data from HOTWORX workout calories burned with an advanced daily diet tracking log to allow users to view progress towards the goal of a 10% deficit of calories consumed to calories burned throughout the day and pursuant to a 90 day diet challenge that is in sync with a 90 day workout challenge. You get what you measure in life!

There you have it, the keys to fitness success…simplicity, consistency and measurability.

You get all three with the HOTWORX BURN OFF APP and the all new Diet Trax.
