Need to Gain or Lose Weight – We Can Help

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, July 30, 2020
Achieve Better, Faster Weight Loss Results

There are numerous strategies to help the fitness enthusiast gain or lose weight. Some are simple, some complex. Our certified personal trainers are experts in helping both the thin and thick march toward more healthy living.

Whether you are thick or thin, it is important to participate in a mix of diet, cardio, weight training, and flexibility exercises. There is a common misperception that these activities will only make thin people thinner. This is simply untrue when your program is professionally managed.

Naturally thin people can be under safe weight due to a host of reasons. Understanding your lifestyle before starting your workout regimen is critically important. In order to gain weight, there are habits that likely need to be broken and new habits established. If you’ve struggled for some time to gain healthy weight, then strongly consider entrusting a trained professional to guide you on a new path. Of course, this very same pint is true for those of us struggling with unhealthy excessive weight.

Straight up with you here. There is no simple and easy path to true physical fitness. There are dietary supplements constantly being advertised that promise you weight gain or loss in no time. It is important to remember that many of these dietary supplements are full of synthetic nutrients that can effect weight gain or loss, but this effect is often via an unhealthy path, with temporary results, and potentially permanent health detriments. When it comes to your health, very few things are worth investing more time and energy.

How to Measure Fitness Level And Set Goals

Monitoring your progress takes a lot of commitment. Some of us simply aren’t numbers-type of people. But it is important to measure your fitness progress for a number of positive reasons.

If you don’t set reasonable and obtainable goals, you’re not likely ever to arrive a true fit state. Measuring your progress to reasonable and achievable goals feeds self-motivation and true enjoyment out of your fitness program. By knowing the specifics it will indeed help you set realistic fitness goals, monitor your progress, and maintain your motivation. And from there once you know the starting point, you will plan where you want to go next.

Having your fitness level professionally assessed and baselined is a really smart move. To start with your fitness assessments, among other things we’ll teach you is how to check and track your resting heart rate. Your heart rate at rest is a measure of heart health and fitness. For most adults, a healthy heart rate is 60 to 100 beats a minute. There is also the target heart rate zone which is an increase in your heart rate. There is a different rate depending on your age, for those who are moderately doing intense activities, and when you do vigorous activities. This target heart rate the zone is a guide for making sure your exercise is intense enough. If you are not reaching your target zone, you need to increase the intensity. If you are achieving a target rate, set goals for gradually increasing your target. And lastly in your assessment, the run, or jogging test. This is where you time yourself on a 1.5-mile (2.4-kilometer) run or jog. The times are generally considered indicators of a good fitness level based on age and sex. A lower time usually indicates better aerobic fitness and a higher time suggests a need for improvement.

The results of your fitness assessment will help you set goals for staying active and improving fitness outcomes. Keep track of your progress in improving your fitness. Take the same measurements about six weeks after you begin an exercise program and regularly afterward. It is encouraging if each time you repeat your assessment you celebrate your progress and adjust your fitness goals accordingly.

Simple “Sacrifices” to Achieve Your Fitness Goal

When you follow true aspirational change, there are sacrifices you must make. They will all pay off in the end. If not for reasonable life style change, your fitness goal are likely not going to be achieved.

You might need to wake earlier in the morning to get to the fitness center. That might mean that you need to get to bed a little earlier the previous night. So that is a “sacrifice”, right. It depends on how you look at it. Think about how this new day has started. You got up early, you made your bed, you went to the fitness center and prioritized your health. Those are three accomplishments that you can celebrate for the remainder of the day. You’ve got a great start already.

Losing weight will require you to give up some foods you love and in contrast eating some foods you might need to learn to love. We have countless members here who rave about their culinary awakening and the joy of experiencing various foods that they only thought that they didn’t like. Healthy foods. In addition, they also celebrate saying goodbye to unhealthy food that they once thought that they could not do without.

Sacrifice is a negative mindset. This is all about change that is healthy and the mere fact that you are investing mental energy in this healthy change is a boon for good mental health.

There are some lifestyle actions that will help you manage stress. Stress is natural and a component of every human’s life. There is good stress and bad stress. Good stress keeps you focused on the most critical elements of life. Bad stress is when we start sweating the small stuff. Runaway bad stress has devastating effects on health and happiness. Physical fitness exercise is a most effective combatant to bad stress.

Bad stress poses problems to your health while the normal stress will help you perform better under pressure. There are some ways to manage your time and plan ahead in order to avoid the last-minute stress and running behind. With the stress hormone active as well as your adrenaline, everything in your body will influence your blood pressure, heart rate, sleeping patterns, etc. Stressing out will be avoided depending on your style of living and being positive by looking at the bright side of the situation.

On the other hand, challenges are opportunities for personal growth. Learning from your experience will reflect on the stressful scenario which you have encountered. One way of dealing with it is by increasing your physical activity. Physical activity helps pump up your endorphins and produces more of your brain's feel-good neurotransmitters called endorphins which reduce your stress and improves your health. It will help you normalize your hormones and offset the negative effects stress that will have on your body. Doing some moderate physical activity in a day on most days of the week, you will see a big difference. Likewise, brisk walking is an excellent way to increase your physical activity.

The importance of exercise is extensive. It increases your overall health and your sense of well-being. It gives more vitality to your daily activities and every action. Moreover exercise also has direct stress-busting benefits to your wellness. Regular physical activity will keep you healthy as it reduces stress and offers a healthy lifestyle.
