This post title depicts the atmosphere in our XTREME FITNESS Makeover. Two weeks in and attitudes have changed from timid to I CAN DO THIS! Workouts are changed to ensure no two are alike and better yet they are productive and challenging.
When designing your training program, I suggest sitting back and analyzing WHY you are training? This is important as it should dictate HOW you train. The obvious example is for someone training for a marathon.
If you are following this blog please help me cheer these gals on. They absolutely rocked their group workout this morning! Energies were high and with obvious determination they powered though RIP TIDE. In the coming hours I am sure they will be icing, foam rolling and stretching! It's a good thing we covered those 3 very important revovery items. :) If things continue as they are now there is no doubt what so ever that goals will be met and every one of these ladies will continue their journey. Check ya later and have a great weekend!
Tomorrow we kick off a challenging six week program. 2 teams of 7 will work individually and as a group to rally up by improving their body comps and weight. The person who creates the most change will win a years membership to Balance Personal Training's FIT LAB. Throughout our journey I'll be blogging our progress. Let's all rally around all these hard working individuals!
10 Tips for Losing Weight
Most people understand a weight loss program to mean starving yourself and doing cardiovascular training. But have you noticed that most of your friends who spend hours on cardiovascular for months, rarely manage to lose any weights. This is because they do not understand that a combination of resistance weight training and a powerful diet is 20 times more effective than a cardiovascular training. Here are ten tips covering all aspects of a good weight loss program which will involve,
Understanding proper nutrition
For those who can gain weight easily and are always concerned about their rising number on scales, gaining weight may seem a cake walk. However, contrary to the notion, gaining weight can be a challenge for many. There are significant numbers of people out there who stay worried about their troubles gaining weight, despite a good diet.
Causes of being underweight
Struggling with obesity is a challenge when it’s your body that is doing the struggling. But it can be just as challenging to watch someone you love face that struggle. You can watch them yo-yo through a variety of diet and exercise programs without finding success, watch them as they become diagnosed with conditions that are completely connected with their obesity, and watch as their self-esteem and zest for life decreases by the day. Worst of all, you know if that they don’t find a way to lose the weight and keep it off, they are at risk for an early death.
So, you want to lose 10 pounds!What to do? Well, notwithstanding the Holiday Season, there is plenty you can do to achieve your goal. You just need to allow yourself some time for implementing the first couple of changes and make sure you do not lose more than 1-2 pounds per week. Any faster than that, and your weight might be back sooner than later! If you “shed” fast, you do not build healthy life habits, you do not change your daily actions for a time long enough to imprint the new way of acting as your “usual” from now on.
