Do you feel like you have no time or energy for exercising? That’s how many people feel who think that it takes hours in the gym to achieve true fitness. They’re wrong. You don’t have to “live” in the gym to get all the benefits of a workout. In fact, 30 minutes each session that’s the right type of exercise done correctly, is as effective as an hour in the gym.
Too much time exercising can actually cause weight gain!
Studies show if you exercise over two and a half hours straight, you potentially cause stress to your body. Stress causes your body to produce hormones, such as cortisol, which are linked to the accumulation of abdominal—belly—fat. That’s one reason to spread your workout over several days, doing approximately a half hour each time, three times a week, which gives your muscle fibers a chance to heal and allows you to replenish nutrients. It also lets you live your life with your loved ones, not changed to the gym and prevents both burnout and boredom.
You need to find a personal trainer who will work with your schedule.
While you can workout less and maximize the benefits, you also need someone who has the knowledge and experience to help you achieve your goals and show you the best method of getting the most from your workout. Personal trainers work with your schedule rather than you being forced to accommodate theirs. That allows you to utilize your time better so that exercising several times a week is possible and far easier.
Your personal trainer should utilize workouts that boosts your metabolism.
The more fit you become, the easier it is to burn even more calories. That’s because exercise creates more muscle tissue and burns off fat tissue. Muscle tissue requires more calories than fat tissue does. 24/7 you’ll be burning more even when you’re not exercising and that will show in more rapid weight loss that stays off permanently.
Get creative. If you want to spend more time with your family or friends, but still want to lose weight, make working out a family affair or a small group get together. Many trainers allow you to do semi-private or group sessions, which can be the perfect couple’s night out.
Some exercises not only burn calories while you’re in the gym, they create a metabolic “afterburn” which continues to burn calories long after the session ended.
Losing weight isn’t all about exercising. Much of it is about the type of food you eat. You need to combine a healthy diet with the workout. A personal trainer can help you create a personalized menu.
Shorter workouts that are geared to maximize the benefits show quicker results and more success. Success is a powerful driving force to keep you on the path to a thinner healthier you.
