If you play a winter sport like hockey or football...any sport where you have much of the summer off...you know that after taking a few weeks off at season's end, it's time to start thinking about some sort of off-season training to prepare your body for the new season. If you have kids, you may even consider sending them to sports camps. They are great, no question, but they can be very expensive and often time comsuming.
I tell my clients that the scale is just one way of measuring progress. Far more important is taking regular measurements. They need to include the chest, waist, arms, hips, and calves. Measure at the same time of the day every 2 weeks or at least once a month. This will really measure your fat loss and muscle gains. I have had clients lose only 2 pounds, but lose 9 inches. This means that the fat is getting converted to muscle which takes up less space.
Creating a healthy body is no easy task. There are so many different facets of health and it is difficult to know if a person has any deficiencies. One of those areas that people commonly do not think about until it is too late is bone strength.
Everyday I here and see people saying I want abs. Great goal for sure but what each of these people fail to understand is to have visible abs you must learn how to cook and eat clean. Exercise will strengthen the abs and burn fat, but it will not give you visible abs on its own. Nutrition is the key to any weight loss program and it all begins in the kitchen. Understanding what eating clean means is one of the hardest concepts for people to understand I have found. There are numerous diet plans on the internet, but very few actually explain what eating clean means.
In the past, I have been a sceptic whenever somebody brought up the issue of online personal training. It seemed a contradiction in terms to me. Yet, I now find myself giving it serious consideration, and I need to explain what brought on this transformation.
You should always be a little suspicious of people who offer "miracle cures," but recently, doctors at the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in the UK have declared that exercise itself is worthy of the name, "Miracle Cure."
