You might initially think of a Fort Lee personal trainer as just an exercise coach, but trainers are far more than that. Personal trainers not only help you maximize your workout time but also can show you healthy recipes in Fort Lee to lower your caloric intake, without making you feel deprived or leaving you hungry. Trainers today provide nutritional help on an individual basis. Not everyone has a weakness for Ben and Jerry’s, some people find pizza or other foods are their downfall. Trainers listen to your special needs, help identify your favorite foods, assess your level of fitness and learn of any special needs. Only then does a trainer design a program specifically for you.
The trainer won’t give you a diet, because diets don’t work.
Diets never work, even when they’re successful. That’s because they always end and you go back to your old eating habits, which put the weight on in the first place. Instead of handing you a diet, a personal trainer shows you how to make healthier food choices. The training may include substituting one food for another or learning how to make your favorite food healthier, such as using unsweetened applesauce to replace some of the oil in baked goods. Most people never feel deprived or hungry and often find they’re eating more, but losing weight faster.
The combination of a healthy diet with exercise is the Waterloo of fat.
A healthy diet lowers calories and if that’s all you did, you’d lose weight. However, when you add exercise to the mix, you’re not only improving your healthy, you’re burning calories faster, which means you’ll also lose weight faster. Exercise builds muscle tissue and muscle tissue requires more calories than fat tissue does, so you’ll be burning extra calories 24 hours a day—even when you’re sleeping.
You’ll workout harder than you would on your own.
The personal trainer assesses your fitness level so he or she can design a program that works you to your maximum capabilities, but is still within your reach. As your fitness level improves, the trainer modifies the program to reflect that improvement. You’ll always be working at your maximum, but safely within your ability.
The trainer will show you how to execute each exercise correctly and then watch to insure you do it right. That’s important because doing an exercise right can help prevent injury and maximize the benefits.
You’ll learn how to make delicious foods that are also very healthy. If you have a family, you’ll be able to teach them how to eat healthier by serving healthy foods. Many of the foods use herbs and spices to add flavor, which means you’ll all be eating like gourmets but with lower calorie recipes.
The combination of a healthy diet and regular exercise not only zaps fat, it also helps prevent serious conditions, such as high blood pressure and diabetes. If you already have a problem, the combination may make it more manageable.
You’ll have more energy the more you exercise. The increased stamina and endurance gives you plenty of energy to do other activities that also burn calories, making weight loss and a healthy lifestyle easier.
