ALLN-1 $5,000 Challenge to Encourage Fitness Consistency by Working out from HomeLearn About the New Fitness Company TrainChange, the Founder Al Smith’s Story, and Why It Could Change Your Active Life
SAMMAMISH, WASH.— Many fitness programs are results-oriented and focus on physical transformation to the detriment of most important key to fitness success: consistency. After 30 years in the fitness industry, personal trainer Al Smith knows that weight loss is rarely permanent when the challenge is over, focus is lost, and determination is gone. That’s why he has founded TrainChange, a fitness company that focuses on motivation, nutrition, and exercise, and emphasizes the need for lifelong consistency. Smith’s new ALLN-1 $5,000 Fitness Consistency Challenge is his way to help people improve and maintain their health for life.
As a professional fitness consultant and personal trainer, Smith knows there are many reasons a person wants to get in shape. “I participated in the original Body for Life back in 1997, and, although I didn't win, it was a great experience that kick-started my own personal commitment to long-term fitness,” said TrainChange founder Al Smith, Jr. Unfortunately, for most people their life gets busy and they fall back into their old eating and exercise habits. That’s where the ALLN-1 exercise bench and virtual training studio can help.
Results-oriented types of transformation challenges haven’t been able to address the need for consistency, and they may make it worse by encouraging people to rely on an external locus of control. “I want to teach people that the benefits from getting in shape and leading a healthier life shouldn’t be based on the physical results but rather the interpersonal changes that occur,” said Smith. “It’s a new level of control that you not only have over your body, but your life in general.” But, before people can achieve this control, they must implement progressive, positive change in their lives.
The ALLN-1 fitness bench and virtual training studio not only provides the opportunity for consistency, but it’s also convenient. “Not everyone is comfortable enough in their own body or have the confidence they need to even get up and go to a gym,” said Smith. The problem is there has never been a viable, at-home fitness solution that’s affordable. The ALLN-1 program not only provides more than 100 progressive resistance exercises and cardiovascular training but also gives personal training and motivational guidance to see people through the initial stages.
“We hope our virtual personal training program along with the ALLN-1 fitness consistency challenge will help people see that they can make the changes they want in their life, right from the comfort of their own home,” said Smith. “The change they want to make doesn’t have to be time boxed into 12 weeks; rather, it should happen through consistent changes—everyday.” To kickstart an ALLN-1 lifelong fitness program, TrainChange is offering a $5,000 Fitness Consistency Challenge. To participate, clients must sign up by January 1, 2017.

1 Home Fitness Machine – Does over 100 Exercises Plus Provides the Motivation to Use It
|TrainChange Fitness’ new ALLN-1™ exercise bench to Raise Consumer Expectations of Virtual Personal Training and the Business of Home Fitness|
SAMMAMISH, WASH.—Long-term fitness requires dedication to both nutrition and exercise. A person can’t workout enough to counteract a bad diet, and similarly a person can’t slim down without body movement. And, without motivation to make long-term goals a reality, a person won’t last long in the gym. This is exactly why TrainChange Fitness has developed a trifold approach to fitness. TrainChange, which stands for Training your Body and Changing your Life, was created to help people achieve their lifelong fitness goals by using a combination of techniques to empower them into making change through daily motivation techniques, and computer generated nutrition plans and exercise routines.
Today, TrainChange Fitness announced it will launch a Kickstarter campaign to introduce its new AllN-1™ exercise bench to be used in conjunction with its TrainChange Fitness strategy.
The AllN-1™ (Patents Pending) is a multi-purpose fitness bench for both commercial and home use. Its adaptable designed lets users perform more than 100 exercises incorporating fitness bands and a person’s weight. Although it’s made from commercial grade steel and aluminum it weighs less than 100 pounds.
“The AllN-1™ was originally designed as a hip thruster machine for Figure and Fitness competitors that were tired of having to awkwardly use a bench or leg extension machine to do one of the most fundamental exercises in a competition fitness routine—hip thrusters,” said TrainChange founder Al Smith, Jr., ISSA certified fitness trainer with over 30 years of first-hand personal training and competitive fitness experience. The AllN-1™ is SAFER for doing hip thrusters for advanced athletes that want to perform the exercise with a weighted barbell, whereas beginners can use no resistance at all, because the swiveling back and foot plate double the effectiveness of doing the exercise. Currently, there are only 1 or 2 other hip thrusters on the market, but if you Google “hip thrusters” you’ll see the immediate need for such a machine in the marketplace.
“As a fitness consumer myself, I can’t rationalize having to pay over $500 for a machine that only does one exercise,” says Smith. Going on to explain, “Since less than 1% of the population are Fitness or Bodybuilding competitors, I decided to use my personal training background to incorporate the most basic exercises of any fitness routine into the AllN-1™ in addition to the advanced exercises.” AllN-1™ customers even have the option of working with virtual trainers or attending AllN-1™ virtual group sessions for extra motivation and social support. It really is an all in one approach to fitness.
Other, traditional approaches to home fitness have historically encouraged consumers to purchase “cardio intensive” products like the PX90 or Tae Bo videos to use with a one size fits all accompanying nutrition plan, which only results in short-term weight loss because the intense calorie reduction through that level of activity simply isn’t sustainable in the long term. Or, consumers could join an at-home nutrition or dieting service like Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers, but were still required to obtain a separate gym membership, where the business models are really focused on selling recurring monthly memberships or training services, not on teaching consumers how-to achieve long-term fitness, by empowering them to learn how to maintain their fitness success--on their own. With TrainChange Fitness, consumers now have access to a compact and affordable, total body, progressive resistance and cardio machine, along with one-on-one exercise and nutrition guidance right in their home. Additionally, TrainChange provides motivational and life-coaching that reinforces the importance of consistency to realize self-empowering lifelong changes. Lastly, clients of TrainChange Fitness even have the option of being able to work with virtual personal trainers or attend group AllN-1™ virtual training sessions for extra motivation and social support systems. It really is an all in one approach to fitness.
“With TrainChange and the new AllN-1, people have access to every aspect of what they need to reach their fitness goals from their living room or wherever their motivation leads them to touch the hem of their own greatness for that day,” said Smith. “My company has taken away the age-old excuse of not having enough time or resources to take care of one’s self.”
TrainChange’s AllN-1™ Kickstarter campaign will begin in early November at a deep discount to help get the product into households before the infamous New Year’s resolution cycle begins. “I like to think that with the AllN-1™ and our complete fitness lifestyle offerings we’re providing the marketplace with tools that anyone can use to finally achieve their fitness goals,” said Smith.
