Nutrition & Weight Management
Nutrition is one of the main aspects of healthy living but is often overlooked by clients. This is due to lack of knowledge, working longer hours at work, family commitments etc. Many people are under the misconception that if they exercise they can eat what they want. Unfortunately this is not always the case. The body needs the right nutrients and vitamins. By going for long periods of time without food, this will lead to overeating, sugar cravings, low blood sugar, and lack of energy. In turn this reduces the metabolism making weight loss harder. During exercise the body needs the right type of food to encourage fat burning and avoid muscle and protein stores from being used instead. This combined with the correct training will produce significant results, including weight loss and fat loss, muscle definition, and keeping the weight off permanently.
Running is one of the best ways to lose weight, increase fitness levels fast, and best of all, it’s inexpensive (make sure you get a good pair of trainers before you start). All running programmes start from a walk/run principle. Gradually start to double the time on the run effort and half on the walk, until you can run your desired distance without stopping. Progression is the key to quality training and by using fartlek and interval training as part of your programmes you will be up and running in no time!
Circuit training is one of the best training exercises to do as this not only works every major muscle group, but also increases fitness levels faster than most other workouts. A reduction in weight is certainly guaranteed with this style of training!
