How To Maximize Your Personal Training Session

Joseph Coupal - Friday, July 12, 2019
Answer is Fitness - Personal training program in Canton, MA

Since you’ve decided to invest money and time with a professional personal trainer here in Canton, prepare yourself for amazing results! In order to maximize the benefit of this new commitment, here are several things you can might consider.

  1. Less Talk Move More - A small talk can help build rapport but chatting constantly can only create a distraction from your execution and timing.
  2. Be on time - Your trainer's workout plan will be ruined if you always arrive late on your session. You will more likely have to skip some proper warm-up or get a less time for it just so you can catch up with the scheduled fitness plan.
  3. Follow the stopwatch - You need to stick to the timing to get far better outcomes. There are rationale for every specific break time between sets or retaining a certain intensity of cardio intervals for a particular duration.
  4. Follow Nutritional Advice - As much as possible, follow the provided diet plan for you to get amazing results.
  5. Don’t fib - It would be difficult to manage your program if you are lying about your efforts and food intake. Let your trainer know about what you are willing to do so he can also be straightforward as to the outcomes you can expect.
  6. Be open to try new things - Your trainer will tweak your regimen to tailor it to your current health condition and specific needs. However, do try to perform new exercises even if they don’t come easily at first.
  7. Trust your Personal Trainer - Trust your personal trainer's expertise and be submissive rather than arguing with them about your workout plan. This only waste both of your time.
  8. Get adequate sleep. Makes sure to get enough sleep at night for fitness recovery and gain enough energy for another workout session the next day. If you show up very exhausted on your training, you may not be able to perform some challenging exercises because your energy are limited.
  9. Speak The Truth - It's important to let your personal trainers know about how your body feels and if your motivation is starting to fade in order for them to make some adjustments to your program according to your comments.
  10. Be enthusiastic - Be eager or passionate to reach your fitness goals and change your life. Do your best in every session so you can get maximum results.

Foods To Eat When Taking Hot Yoga Class

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, July 11, 2019
Answer is Fitness - hot yoga class in Canton, MA

Hot Yoga is a demanding workout. To optimize the benefit of Hot Yoga, you need proper nutrition so your body can sustain the activity. Hot Yoga workouts enhance your general strength, but if you have inadequate protein intake you can't build muscles. You run the risk of feeling weak during the workout and other daily activities. To maximize your workout, here are tips on what to eat and drink as an active Hot Yoga participant.

Hydrate Before The Session

Make sure to drink up at least 8 oz of water, 30 minutes before hot yoga class starts. If you're taking an evening session, try to drink water that is half your body weight (in ounces) during the day before class. For instance, if you weigh 100 lbs, hydrate 50 ounces of water throughout the day. Ensure 8 ounces of that is within 30 minutes of your class. If you attend morning yoga, try to drink 8-16 ounces prior to class. You may also drink tea or flavored water so you can able to consume such volume. Avoid coffee because it can dehydrate you during practice.

What To Eat Before

A small snack can be taken 60-90 minutes prior to class when you're taking evening class but it's important that you have eaten adequately during the day. The small snack is enough to provide the energy to perform the workout. While 30 minutes before morning class, you may eat half a banana or handful of berries. A protein shake or a glass of almond milk is also a good choice. These food options can give you substantial amount of energy.

A full stomach is not recommended prior to class because it would be difficult to engage your core. You might not fully execute the poses and this would only upset your tummy. Large meal must be taken at least an hour before session and pick food options that are easy to digest.

What to Drink After

It's important to replenish water and electrolyte loss from 60 minutes continuous sweating during the class. Drink beverages that contain electrolytes or coconut water. It can replace electrolytes especially sodium and potassium which can help avoid dehydration, headache or muscle cramps

What to Eat After

Eat nutritious meals that are packed with protein. Eggs, fresh veggies, meat and fresh fruits are good options for those taking morning sessions. Grilled fish and veggies are good dinner if you had an evening hot yoga session. Protein is important for muscle repair and development. In case you crave for sugar, make sure to select a treat with unrefined sugars like oatmeal. You may drizzle just enough pure maple syrup, some berries and dash of cinnamon.

Hot Yoga Can Heal Injury and Chronic Pain

Joseph Coupal - Monday, July 01, 2019
Answer is Fitness yoga classes in Canton, MA

Hot yoga is a great alternative therapy for numerous injuries and pains. It applies a technique to correct the pain-causing condition called "tourniquet effect". Tourniquet effect is a condition where the blood flow in a specific area of the body is temporarily impeded. When eliminated it promotes healing as oxygenated blood flows through the body. It enhances the development of healthy cells, hydrating scar tissue, and calcifying the joints. Old injuries and pain gradually heals and diminishes as flexibility and strength is increased. This minimizes the need to take oral pain relievers and you may eventually, ditch them totally.

The heat applied in Hot Yoga Studios aids in expanding the blood vessels for normal circulation and delivery of oxygen and other nutrients to the body organs. This process promotes slow aging process and better overall health. Other benefits of the heat includes:

  • improving muscle flexibility
  • flushes toxins through sweat
  • workouts the heart and burns calories
  • boosts the immune system
