I re-discovered the pleasure to look like good

Special to ChulucanasGym.




I worked out many years ago much motivated, strong, passionate. However, the motivation missed and I left the wonderful world of exercise. I accostumed the bad habits turned me into its slave.


So, it was when I decided to be normal. I ate out of my time or sometimes I didn’t eat neither, let’snot speaking about my bedtime, I went overnight daily. Fat never lacked, the terrible fast food. The alcohol never lacked in my ‘glorious’ normal life.


I woke up tired everyday, headache, sick. The gastritis was advancing as much as my great life advanced. I thought my body improved at a some moment itself. I was waiting for that ‘big miracle’ (in other words, immersing me into the mediocrity of something falls me down from the sky).


I was too sank into my normal life, what I was not hoping to leave out, because I enjoyed to disobey the needs of my body, I felt pleasure to know I would be “approved” by everybody. But upon a day, I decided to change by the invitation of my great friend David Saldarriaga Noel, who ever helps me to be better.


Everything was a challenge to me. From eating healthy to sleeping at my time due to insomnia, getting away the alcohol. Nothing was easy. However, I started to progress, I already felt no pain, I felt pleasure to see my progress, these little trials in context were what defined my advance (whether tiny or huge), I was proud of my changes. Later, I reminded the power of perseverance. I was becoming disciplined not thinking about, coming back to this wonderful world.


At the same time, I was tired because I never had done functional exercise, I was following up the routines everyday, until the Super Online Challenge event  happened, which I felt very comfortable because everyone looked for the same like me – a better physical as well as mental version, a life out of the normal, a life out of the stress, a life made fit to me.


The motivation shared in the group is unique. It feels that joint power that motivates you to follow “the extra mile.” They helped me to change my habits avoiding to be one of these normal people. That’s about to follow forward, whether few, whether regular. I’m advancing, it’s my goal line, they’re my dreams, I set it up well and I did not give up.  These are the results of not giving up!

Redescubrí el placer de verme bien

Especial para ChulucanasGym.



Hace años entrenaba con bastantes ganas, fuerza, pasión; sin embargo, la motivación se perdió y yo dejé el maravilloso mundo del ejercicio. Me acostumbré a que los malos hábitos me convirtieran en su esclavo.


Fue entonces cuando decidí ser normal. Comía fuera de mis horarios, o a veces ni comía, las horas de sueño ni hablar, me amanecía diariamente; las grasas nunca faltaban, la terrible comida rápida. El alcohol tampoco faltaba en mi ‘gloriosa’ vida normal.


Amanecía todos los días cansado, con dolor de cabeza, pesadez; la gastritis fue avanzando conforme mi ‘gran vida’ avanzaba. Pensaba que en algún momento mi cuerpo mejoraría por sí solo; estaba esperando ese ‘gran milagro’ (mejor dicho, sumergirme en la mediocridad de que algo me caiga del cielo) .


Estaba tan ahogado en mi vida normal, la que no estaba esperanzado en dejar, porque me encantaba desobedecer las necesidades de mi cuerpo, sentía placer con tal de saber que sería “aprobado” por el resto. Pero un día, decidí cambiar por invitación de mi gran amigo David Saldarriaga Noel, quien siempre me ayuda a ser mejor.


 Todo era un reto para mí. Desde comer sano, descansar a mis horas por el insomnio, despegarme del alcohol. Nada fue fácil. Sin embargo, comencé a progresar, ya no sentía dolor, sentía placer de ver mi progreso, fueron esos pequeños intentos en conjunto lo que definieron mi avance (fuese pequeño o grande), estaba orgulloso de mis  cambios; luego recordé el poder de la perseverancia. Sin saber estaba volviéndome disciplinado y regresando a este maravilloso mundo.


Al mismo tiempo estaba cansado porque nunca había hecho ejercicio funcional, estuve siguiendo las rutinas todos los días, hasta que se presentó el evento Super Online Challenge, en el que me sentí muy cómodo debido a que todos buscaban lo mismo que yo: una mejor versión tanto física como mental, una vida fuera de lo normal, una vida fuera de estrés, una vida hecha a mi medida.


La motivación compartida en el grupo es única, se siente ese poder en conjunto que siempre te da ganas de seguir “un poco más”; me ayudaron a cambiar de hábitos evitando ser una más de esas personas normales. De eso se trata seguir adelante, sea poco, sea regular. Estoy avanzando, es mi meta, son mis sueños, me lo planteé bien y no me rendí. ¡Éstos son los resultados de no rendirse!

A pro runner and his pupils reach goals amid the lockdown

Consuelo Yarlequé is 61 years old and until May 1st, 2020, she was 69 kilos or 152 pounds. It was not good news – she was type-1 obesity. That same day she started up a training & feeding plan. Three weeks later, during her evaluation, she noticed she has lost… 9 pounds! “I’m happy of the results,” the lady affirms. “Through all years of experience I’m running, I never had lost so much weight.”


Consuelo and other people in Piura, Chiclayo, Cajamarca, and Lima (Peru) have joined an online project called Entrenamiento Online elite (Online Elite Training, or EO as its acronyme in Spanish) powered by the marathon runner Jesús Ademir Sosa Valdiviezo, who is also a sports coach and promoter. There are plans for the initiative to expand to Spain.


The EO premise comes from the cloistering sensation and the stress provocated by the pandemic fact what many times impact on the body, and that does not bring benefits to health. The project looks for helping the people with the best online sports advisory, on live training, physical activity programs designed to provide relaxation, resistance, muscular power, and flexibility. It also provides an evaluation  for high-performance feeding and all tips you need to have a healthy life.


“Most people want to keep fit and have a healthy lifestyle, so I’ve created entrenamiento Online Elite interested to reach the folks who don’t go to a gym regularily, because they don’t have time or their daily jobs don’t allow to do a routine for keeping fit and also due to the gyms won’t open this year because they are the main Covid-19 infection hotspots,” Jesús Sosa sustained.


The reknown runner referred this has been a great opportunity: “This lockdown is very hard for everybody, however we also know  it’s a pretty good opportunity to grow, feel, dream of… To me, this crisis has been the opportunity to start up this project I was postponing so many times and the truth is that I’m very happy to contribute positively in the life of persons.”


“I want you to know of the physical activity importance as healthy habit for avoiding the sedentarism, and like an essential factor to fight the stress generated by the social isolating situation because of Covid-19,” he added.


How the Online elite Training works on
The live training is from Monday to Friday at 8:30 pm. (0130 GMT) on a Facebook private group. Sosa thinks it’s a comfortable time for everybody because someones study and others work, so the classes keep recorded and they can train later by watching the live webcasting at the time they prefer.


The athlete noticed that, for example, there are nurses during the online training, and sometimes they , when having an overnight turn, train the next day, but they don’t leave to complete their routine. And other guys who also study, if they struck on the schedule, train later the same way. The idea is not losing the continuity. All the pupuls are followed up by WhatsApp according to their goal, whether increasing muscular mass, decreasing fat index, or simply keeping healthy.


“I’d invite all the people who have the wish to start a healthy life to join this Online Elite Training project,” Jesús Sosa manifested. “Like a pro, I guarantee good results.” For more information, you can contact directly to Jesús Sosa, go to the Online Elite Training (in Spanish), or write him an e-mail.

He’s worked for Catacaos and La Arena Districts Municipalities, both in Piura Province. He speaks intermediate-level english, by the way.

Un maratonista profesional y su alumnado logran metas en plena cuarentena

Consuelo Yarlequé tiene 61 años y hasta el 1 de mayo de 2020 pesaba 69 kilos. No eran buenas noticias: se encontraba en obesidad tipo 1. Ese mismo día comenzó un plan de
entrenamiento y alimentación. Tres semanas después, durante su evaluación, notó que había bajado… ¡4 kilos! “Estoy muy feliz por los resultados”, afirma la mujer. “En todos los años de experiencia que llevo corriendo, nunca había bajado tanto de peso”.


Consuelo y otras personas en Piura, Chiclayo, Cajamarca y Lima se han integrado a un proyecto llamado Entrenamiento Online Elite (EO), impulsado por el maratonista Jesús Ademir Sosa Valdiviezo, quien además es gestor y técnico deportivo. Hay planes de que la iniciativa se extienda a España.


La premisa de EO parte de la sensación de encierro y el estrés que provoca la situación de la pandemia, los que repercuten muchas veces en el cuerpo, y eso no es beneficioso para la salud.  El proyecto busca ayudar a las personas a través del mejor asesoramiento deportivo online, entrenamientos en vivo, programas de actividad física diseñados para proporcionar relajación, resistencia, fortaleza muscular y flexibilidad; además se proporciona una evaluación en nutrición para el alto rendimiento y todos los consejos que se necesitan para llevar una vida saludable.


“La mayoría de gente quiere mantenerse en forma y tener un estilo de vida saludable, así que he creado Entrenamiento Online Elite con el interés de llegar a las personas que no van regularmente al gimnasio por falta de tiempo, o porque sus ocupaciones diarias no le permiten realizar una rutina para mantenerse en forma y además debido a que este año no abrirán los gimnasios por ser los principales focos infecciosos del COVID-19”, sostuvo Jesús Sosa.


El reconocido maratonista refirió que ésta ha sido una gran oportunidad: “Esta cuarentena es muy difícil para todos, sin embargo sabemos también que es una muy buena oportunidad para crecer, sentir, soñar… Para mí, ésta crisis ha sido mi oportunidad de emprender este proyecto que tantas veces venía posponiendo y la verdad es que estoy muy feliz de poder contribuir positivamente en la vida de las personas”.


“Quiero que sepan de la importancia de la actividad física como hábito saludable para evitar el sedentarismo y como factor esencial para combatir el estrés que genera la situación de aislamiento social por el COVID-19””, añadió.


Cómo se desarrolla el Entrenamiento Online Elite
Los entrenamientos en vivo son de Lunes a Viernes a las 8:30 pm. (hora peruana) en un grupo cerrado de Facebook. Sosa piensa que es un horario cómodo para todos porque algunos estudian y otros trabajan; así que las clases quedan grabadas y pueden entrenar después viendo la transmisión en vivo en el horario que deseen.


El deportista notó que, por ejemplo, hay enfermeras en el Entrenamiento Online, y ellas a veces cuando les toca turno de amanecida, entrenan al día siguiente, pero no dejan de completar su rutina. Y así otros chicos que también estudian, si se les cruza el horario, igual entrenan luego. La idea es no perder la continuidad.  A todos los alumnos se les hace seguimiento por WhatsApp según su objetivo, ya sea subir masa muscular, bajar índice de grasa o simplemente mantenerse saludable.


 “A toda la gente que tiene el deseo de empezar una vida saludable, los quiero invitar a unirse a este proyecto de Entrenamiento Online Elite”,manifestó Jesús Sosa. “Como profesional les garantizo buenos resultados”. Para mayor información, puedes contactar directamente a Jesús Sosa, visitar la página de Entrenamiento Online Elite, o escribirle a su correo electrónico.

Ha trabajado para las municipalidades de los distritos de Catacaos y La Arena, ambas en la provincia de Piura. Habla inglés a nivel intermedio.

It’s time you put in casting mode

At least in Peru, the Covid-19 infection is going to change muchly the culture about healthy lifestyles, and possibly to be the better. One of the measures the government has taken is body mass index (BMI) people equal or upper 40 may not work in person when the economy to reactivate because they are one of the most vulnerable human groups to the contagion.


The medical reason is simple: the virus leaves the lungsockets useless, the little bags  we have where oxygen feeds the blood allowing the functions of our body to work normally. When that vital gas scarces –a condition known hypoxia—our cells begin to weaken and even die, then they unchain oother health conditions which can shorten our life.


The diabetes and the cardio-vascular diseases also have to do much with obesity. Initially, the Peruvian government fit to the suggestion of World Health Organization about BMI people equal or upper 30, at the moment, were not abled to presential work, but a popular claim moved the mark up to 10 points.


Could your country or your boss take the same decisions? If we think it on the perspective of laboral risk, it’s a chance. Claiming could be a choice but i’ts the easiest choice. The alternative could be you don’t wait for the idea to turn a rule and take control of your own health. But many guys begin enthusiastic in the beginning and lose the motivation step by step.


Here is when our brain has to work to re-program first. Yes, we can. And although we are not endorsing you to take an image as a mirror, the current sanitarian situation does demand us to look for very inspiring references, and after much exploring, we find with the expectant attitude the models have. Yes, the guys you see looking like on the magazines, the posters, or the TV. They are ever ready for the next work, so all their effort is focused on the next casting.


Perhaps this same attitude is what you should adoptbut not falling into paranoiaor increasing your anxiety neither, so here we have a full recipe possibly useful for you very much. Easier, impossible.


Keep your body in shape
When a model has a casting, the first they are going to see is the physique, and that only is gotten with physical exercise, healthy feeding, enough and fixing rest. Remember you have to dedicate at least half-an-hour to work-out your physique, your feeding must cover all your energy need in the right balance, and your whole resting time really recharges in terms of alert and mood.


Then, you have to organize your lifefor accomplish each one of your activities and you must set real, verifiable goalsthose allow to control if you triumph or happens the whole opposite. Doubts? Contact a physical trainer now.


Focus your mind
When a model goes casting, knows pretty well the body is not enough. What the directors are going to evaluate is also how much concentration the model is going to performin the activity he or she is required for. If your body is here but your mind is away, things are not going to work well and that’s easy to notice, especially in crisis time.


Address all your attention to the actual moment, make aware of everything you do or say (even not mentioning any word), follow up the sequence of any activity since its beginning until its end, and pass to the next one when the last one was fulfilled, breathe deeply and think of yourself to ease projecting outside. The meditation is an excellent exercise and we know somebody who can help you.


Perfectionate your talent
We already have a good-shape body, we already have a focused mind. But, what do you know to do? It’s probable what you know to do, other many people can do the same way. Then, your personal task must be improving it to highlight. In that sense, more than compete against the other people, you should compete against yourself, against you used to be. As they say, making yourself a better version of yourself everytime.


And what about if they don’t choose you? This is the major probability a model has clear, then the first he or she learns is overcoming the mistake and reinvent for facing the next challenge, never giving up, following to fight until get it – to be resilient.


Using the social media to show the wworld how much preparation you have got in what you do the best? Yes, of course! Now than ever before, it’s an excellent decision but do it intelligently, strategically, not trying to be like anyone else but differentiating to be better than anyone else. If you need advise, we have somebody who can help you. And remember never to lose the faith in you.


As you will see, to be in casting mode is not only a mind state, the body and the spirit also have to do. It’s not complicated as much as you don’t see it complicated.
