Get more fit with a personal trainer

Personal trainer

Exercising alone itself is quite demotivating. After a tiring day, it gets quite challenging to find the motivation to stay physically active and fit. This is why a certified or qualified personal trainer can help us achieve our goals while keeping us motivated too.

  • Having a personal trainer means we have someone for long-term guidance and motivation.
  • Personal trainer provides structure to our workout as needed and does the thinking for us so that we can focus more on ‘the doing rather than the planning’.
  • A sincere trainer usually does not only help us to workout but also helps us with proper nutritional diet keeping in mind our body type and our goal.

  • We become more accountable when we have our own Personal trainer. We soon stop finding lame excuses for not to go to the gym as we realise that somebody is waiting for our session.
  • Most trainers charges around $60-$80 for each session. Sometimes we even get discounts when we purchase multiple numbers of sessions from them. Considering on what we are spending i.e. our own health, this amount is not much indeed!
  • It is very common that we get bored with our gym routines very easily. Certified Personal trainers with their vast knowledge of exercises, trains us to do wide variety of creative exercises which keeps us going.
  • Personal trainer teaches us it’s all about doing what is more effective for us. Spending many hours at the gym but doing inefficient workouts would not help us to achieve the body we desire. Our trainer trains us how to maximize our efforts and our results.
  • Hiring a qualified personal trainer, means we are investing for a healthier and functionally active future!

Yes, sometimes it does get a little confusing to understand whom to hire as our own trainer as we get into dilemma that what if he is not good or it doesn’t work for us.

Not to worry!

LIIT | Low Intensity Interval Training – The new HIIT

 

LOW INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING (LIIT) VS HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING (HIIT)

We all are aware of the Rabbit vs Turtle race. This is a learning lesson in our day to day practical life. When it comes to exercise or fitness training, we might start off with full stamina and confidence but get tired or injured very soon and end up taking long breaks from our workout routine to recover. What happens in the process is we fall prey to bad internal damages. Today, it is much wiser to follow the ‘Turtle way’ and go slow but steady in order to win the race of a ‘fit life’.

LIIT OR HIIT

There has been a significant shift from HIIT to LIIT off late realizing the benefits of the later. HIITis definitely effective, but it comes along with the slogan-“No pain no gain”. For many of us specially, people with some prior injuries or elderly, HIIT thus become a big challenge. Studies show today, many people prefer to choose LIIT over HIIT.

LIIT – THE BENEFITS

  • It is the best form of workout for beginners or people recovering from any injury.
  • These workouts are programmed with low intensity thus are easier on our joints.
  • It can be easily opted by elderly people who cannot go for high intensity workouts.
  • Since it leaves us with almost no injuries, we can be more consistent with our workout routine.
  • LIIT helps to build up stamina before you opt for higher intensity exercises.
  • It is very helpful for people having issues like anaemia, thyroid etc.
  • It has a steady positive result and thus brings us close to that fit self we dream of.

HELP US TO HELP YOU

However, every body type is different from one another and so is our demands and capacity. Whether you choose HIIT or LIIT the main idea is to work towards leading a healthy and fit life. So don’t let your today ruin your tomorrow. Get up, find yourself a fitness coach or a  workout partner or a fitness trainer and achieve an overall health and fitness all year round!

I want you to do just the opposite…

Have an early Dinner

You should be done with your dinner no later than 8 pm. No need to change what you eat, but yes, do change the quantity. Reduce the portion of carbs like rice, pasta or bread by 75% and replace it with vegetables, chicken breast, turkey or fish. If you badly need red meat, feeding on them once or twice a week is not a problem.

Sleep early and wake up early in the morning

Sleeping late is perhaps the worst habit one can have. When you are awake late at night, your body releases a hormone called cortisol which is responsible for many health problems like high blood pressure, hypertension etc. Sleeping late means, you call for more bad skin, dark circles and obesity.
Yes, sometimes due to work and other mundane stuffs, we do get late but if you try and make this small change, eventually you will place yourself in a win-win situation. Remember, here, you are opting for a better body, giving yourself an opportunity and as the saying goes “opportunities are like sunrises” so don’t miss that sunrise! Wake up… wake up and go for a walk to start your day right.

Munching can be fun with healthier choices as well

You probably have had a bad day, fatigued and starved; all you want is to throw up in your comfy couch and a bag of chips or fried delicacies. Stop! This is where all those extra calories come from. Instead try to snack on nuts, protein bars, Greek yogurt, fruits… the options are plenty!

Healthy Diet StringsSG

Don’t let Carbs be your best friend

I know carbohydrates are a big time stress buster. It is perhaps the best reward food that anyone easily falls for. But what is alarming is the increasing rate of ‘obese carbohydrate craver’ and I am sure you would not like to be the one. So the question is “Can’t I eat cabs at all”? Off course you can indulge yourself into complex carbs like green vegetables, wholegrain foods etc instead of simple or processed ones. Unlike simple carbs which instantly converts to glucose, complex carbs break down at a much slower rate and thereby maintains a steady flow of energy to your body. They are rich in fiber and also reduces the level of bad cholesterol (LDL). Hence try to eat more complex carbs like Oats, Yogurt, Kidney beans, Brown rice, Broccoli, Spinach, and Grapefruits etc.

Drink plenty of water

‘Water is life’… yes it absolutely is! However, we tend to drink lot of other drinks the whole day but not water. Water has zero calories and so many health benefits like it boosts metabolism, flushes out toxins, boosts the immune system etc. If your goal is to lose weight, have a healthy looking skin and a good health; then you must drink at least 8 glasses of water a day… the more the better.

Avoid those canned Beverages

Yes, when you are thirsty and tired, you do crave for that bottled drink which gives you immense satisfaction. But have you ever thought how does that 300ml drink satisfy your cravings? The truth is these pre-packed bottles are loaded with sugar which instantly raises your sugar level and thus boosts your calorie intake. However, if you think wisely all you needed was a glass of water and not these empty calories which just added on to your carbs intake for the day with no nutrition added.

Skipping meal is not an option

If you think that by not eating a meal you will be able to reach your goal… then my friend you are wrong. Losing on your scale has to be done in a healthy manner and not by starving yourself. Skipping meal means lowering your metabolism and thereby helping your body to gain fat. On the contrary the idea is to control your portions and eating healthy.

You must have a healthy and nutritious diet

Your diet is like your bank account and hence good food choices are like good investments! So next time you plate yourself, ensure that you have incorporated 40% vegetables, 30% protein,15% healthy fat and 15% complex carbs. Your diet should be simple and real food. Remember, the key to a good body is 80% good eating habit and 20% exercise.

Be more active

Try to give yourself that extra push needed to achieve your desirable waistline. Yes, it is tiring to hit the gym after day’s work and sometimes time is a constrain too. However an hour of walk or run will work wonders for you. You might not get involved into hard core weight training but can always engage into some other forms of exercises like swimming or a sport of your choice. All you need is to burn out those extra calories of the day that your body doesn’t need.
