          Over the years, coffee has become a mainstay in the life of Elite In-Home Personal Training clients and many other health and fitness enthusiasts everywhere. It gives you a burst of energy when needed and best of all, it helps keep the fat off!


          Some weight loss clients have been advised to drink 2 cups of coffee in the morning before a workout to help reduce body fat.  The client will wake up and drink 2 cups of coffee on an empty stomach. By the time they are finished, their Elite In-Home Personal Trainer should be at their door waiting to take them through another exciting workout.

            The caffeine in the coffee will boost their endurance by prolonging fatigue and help the client burn just body fat. What many people do wrong is they eat a meal right before a workout and then wonder why they crash during a workout. Unfortunately, following the routine just outlined instead of the routine outlined in the second paragraph will only maintain or worsen your current weight and body fat levels instead of tapping into and burning your excess body fat storage to lower those measurements.

Some other benefits to drinking coffee are:

  • improvements to long term memory
  • stimulates the bowels
  • natural diuretic


Of course, plenty of clear liquids should be taken in to flush out toxins no matter how much coffee is consumed.

            The only proven negative effect of coffee is that unfiltered coffee beans have compounds that could possibly raise your blood cholesterol as much as 20 points. Basically, stay away from coffee made in a French press. Many people claim the flavor is better but obviously not healthy for the body. Therefore, drink only filtered coffee!!

A couple of tidbits of information about caffeine:

  • 1 shot of espresso has less caffeine than regular coffee
  • 1 cup of tea has more caffeine than regular coffee
  • 1 cup of coffee can enhance your alertness


So, go ahead and have a java jolt and enjoy! Take advantage of the benefits a hot cup of coffee can do for you. One short, skinny latte to go could add amazing results to your life!!

Hey Everyone!

Today marks Elite In-Home Personal Training’s five year anniversary and I decided that this would be an opportune time to let you know how Elite In-Home Personal Training got started as well as  highlight some of our accomplishments to this point.

I’m sure some of you are wondering why we aren’t doing something exciting to celebrate this milestone in a small businesses lifespan.   The answer is ironic actually, because I am currently on the tail end of a 20 week diet and am only three weeks away from competing for the title of Mr. Contra Costa, four weeks away from competing for the title of Mr. California!  It’s Ironic because I had just won my first bodybuilding competition and had a photo and article printed in FLEX magazine around the time I made the decision to take the plunge into entrepreneurship.

 I was still in college at the time, and although winning my first bodybuilding competition was a great accomplishment, it didn’t translate into more income and well, I was putting myself through college and things were very tight.  Business was so slow that I had to start making more money right away or I was going to be in trouble. I explained my situation to our fitness manager and told me he didn’t want me to go and asked me to do my best to hang on until things picked up again.  I told him I could only afford to wait another two weeks then I would have to give a two week notice and look for another job. I prayed about this a lot. I really enjoyed helping people grow and do things they never knew they could do, and I was good at it. 

A few days later I was training a client when I noticed an unfamiliar face walk into the gym. I was hoping he came in to ask about working with a personal trainer but when he left shortly after he sat down I put the thought out of my mind.  A couple days later the fitness manager gave me his contact information and told me to call him and explained that the reason the guy came in was because he and his wife preferred to work with a personal trainer at their house instead of the gym.  I called later that day and we scheduled a time to meet later that week.  We met and everything went well and he, his wife and I felt it was a good fit.  Before I left we came to an agreement, shook hands and we began working together and continued to do so for nearly three years.

It turns out this guy was a very successful entrepreneur who started his own business when he was 22 years old and never looked back.  Up until this point I had never met someone like this; someone who was very successful in a business they built from the ground up.  Not too long after we started working together he suggested that I start my own business.   He told me there was a need that could be filled and that I should be the one to fill it.  The example he set and those few words of encouragement was enough to inspire me to take action and on  May 5th, 2005,  I opened Elite In-Home Personal Training for business!

It is now 2010 and my team and I have reached a number of important milestones.  By the spring of 2008 I had built Elite In-Home Personal Training up to the point where I was able to quit working at the gym and focus on my business full-time.   I’ve been very fortunate to meet and work with some awesome individuals since then and I would like to think they feel the same about me.  Elite In-Home Personal Training’s staff has helped a lot of people improve their lives for good through health and fitness. 

We have also helped three of our associates make positive changes in their lives as well.  I remember one of our team members saying, “If I didn’t have a job with Elite In-Home Personal Training, I may not have graduated.”  He graduated with a BS in biology and is now trying to get into medical school to become a doctor.  Another personal trainer that we brought on was able to graduate with a business marketing degree.  We now have an office located on K Street in Downtown Sacramento right across form the Convention center and serve all of Sacramento as well as the smaller surrounding communities.  

Thanks to everyone who has supported us in the past as well as everyone we will work with in the future.  The link below is to  the song I will be  using for my posing routine at the Contra.  It’s a must listen! What’s next? Stay tuned, check back often! Thanks again!


And we did… and are! We are ranked as the number one personal training company in Sacramento by Yahoo Local!

The health benefits from drinking coffee continue to be reported-to the point where many of the results seem almost too good to be true.

Coffee reduces diabetes risk. Drinking six cups a day slashed risk of diabetes by 54% for men and 30% for women in an 18 year Harvard study. Even drinking only one cup a day was found to reduce risk by several percent.

At least six other studies indicate coffee-drinkers reduce their risk if Parkinson’s disease by up to 80%. In addition, other studies have reported that drinking at least two cups of coffee a day can reduce risk of developing colon cancer by 25%, risk of gallstones by 50% and risk of liver cirrhosis by 80%.

There’s even evidence that coffee drinking offsets some of the health damage caused by smoking and excessive drinking-those who engage in such health vices but also drink cofee have been reported to suffer less heart and liver damage than those who don’t.

And other studies have indicated cofee may help control asthma, relieve headaches, lift spirits and even prevent cavities.

Coffee also increases athletic performance and endurance-until recently, it was a controlled substance at the Olympic Games.

Moreover, coffee is even good for children. One study in Brazil indicated that children (age 12 average) who drank coffee with milk were less prone to depression and were more alert in school. No study indicates that coffee consumed in reasonable amounts is in any way harmful for children

(SACRAMENTO, CA)  Born and raised in Sacramento California, Malcolm Tears II was destined for a successful career within the fitness industry due to his athletic and scholastic accomplishments, as well as having many great mentor’s who believe Elite In-Home Personal Training’s mission.

“My passion for sports formed early, as my Uncle, Dusty Baker, taught me how to be successful through hard work, commitment, and discipline.  Having the opportunity to chat with baseball greats such as Willie Mays, Barry Bonds, JT Snow, Orlando Cepeda, and others as a San Francisco Giants Bat Boy also gave me depth, insight, and the confidence needed for a successful athletic career, as well.”

Tears would go on to play football for Fresno State University, following in the footsteps of his cousin, Marquez Pope.  He would go on to break three all-time school records as a true freshman.  Having a promising and successful freshman campaign, he was destined for greatness and considered one of the top backs on the team.  However, fate followed his sophomore year, as he would tear his ACL and Meniscus in summer training camp, forcing him to move back and live in Sacramento.

Having a difficult time dealing with the sudden loss of his football career, he decided to make the most of his situation by taking a job as a personal trainer while finishing school at California State University, Sacramento.  It was then that he decided to become a bodybuilder, entering and winning his first bodybuilding competition.

“I trained myself and did all of my own meal planning to show current and future clients that I had mastered the art of getting in shape, whether it was toning or taking it to the extreme and achieving the conditioning required to be a top level bodybuilder.”

Malcolm’s success in the sport of bodybuilding continued, as he was featured in Flex Magazine shortly after his first victory. This past March, he was offered an endorsement contract with one of the industry’s largest supplement companies.  Malcolm chose to respectfully decline the offer, as it would take him away from the business and Elite’s In-Home Personal Training’s mission:  “Influence Americans to Make Health and Fitness a Lifestyle, Not a Goal.”

Staying busy as always, Malcolm added more to his plate.  His love and passion was for bodybuilding and personal training, and although these were two things he loved doing and continued to do, they were no longer adequate to accomplish his goals.  As college was coming to an end, he got a real-estate license and also began working as a Director for a 70 million dollar corporation.  The corporate twelve-hour a day job took it’s toll and took him completely out of his strength zone.  Despite the great income as a one of the companies top performer, he absolutely disliked it!  This learning experience eventually brought him back to his strength zone; back to what he does and loves best, “INFLUENCING AMERICANS TO MAKE HEALTH AND FITNESS A LIFESTYLE, NOT A GOAL!”

Shortly after returning to the fitness industry, Malcolm met the first two of his current group of mentors, two highly respected international business professionals who give him valuable insight, support, and the encouragement needed to continue where he left off.  Now he is back operating Sacramento’s only successful in-home personal training company.

Currently, Elite In-Home Personal Training is the only personal and professional in-home personal training company in Sacramento.  All personal trainers are insured, background-checked, and certified.  The company guarantees results, or your money back!  Their list of clients ranges from the ages of 6 to 63 years old.  They train clients for all aspects of competition and personal goals, whether it’s the high school star running back training for a collegiate career, or the full-time, working mother and father.

Therefore, Elite In-Home Personal Training hopes to influence Sacramento and the American population to make Health and Fitness a Lifestyle, Not a Goal!  One-on-one personal training is vital in beginning this journey because the road to great physical health and happiness begins with each individual.  Start your engines and get moving!  If you are ready to make a personal change to begin living an enriched life by making Health and Fitness a Lifestyle, Not a Goal; and are in need of personal and professional assistance, please contact Malcom Tears II and the Elite In-Home Personal Training staff at (916) 548-3083 for more information.
