If you want to get fit, lose weight or just spend the day hiking with the family at Morgan Falls Overlook park without becoming overwhelmed with exhaustion, but you don’t know where to start or fail to continue once you get started, a Sandy Springs personal trainer can be your answer for success. No two people are alike. Some need to lose weight, others simply want to tone up and still others may have health conditions that would benefit from a healthy diet and exercise. Personal trainers listen to each person’s needs, identifies his or her level of fitness, learns the goals of the individuals and only then does the trainer create a personal program for fitness.
Trainers work you hard, but never ask you to do something beyond your ability.
One reason personal trainers take the time to learn all about you and your level of fitness is so they can create a plan that will challenge you, but still be within your capabilities. That’s one huge difference from working out on your own. While you may think you’re capable of doing a certain exercise, you may find out you’ve overstressed your body and be out of commission for a while. Most people, however, underestimate their abilities and don’t progress fast enough to stay interested, which causes them to quit.
Exercise is important, but personal trainers can also help you improve your diet.
You are what you eat. If you eat healthier, you’ll be healthier. Your body is a miraculous machine, but like any machine, you need to give it the right fuel to keep it running. You wouldn’t put sugar in the tank of your car, unless you don’t want the car to run. The same holds true for your body. If you feed it nothing but junk and sugar, it won’t run very long either.
Diets don’t work.
That may sound like a broad statement contrary to everything you’ve learned in the past, but it’s true. Diets are restrictive and they always end, either in success or failure. You then go back to your old way of eating and regain all the weight you’ve lost. Sometimes, you put your body into starvation mode, so it slows your metabolism to save calories. Unfortunately, once you go back to normal eating, you put on weight faster or lose weight slower because your body burns fewer calories. Personal trainers can help you learn a new way of eating. It doesn’t involve dieting, but making wiser food selections. You’ll learn ways to substitute one food for another to reap fewer calories and more nutrients, such as using Greek yogurt to replace sour cream. You’ll also learn to make minor changes that save a few calories, but all these changes add up to a painless way to lose weight.
Personal trainers provide motivation to keep you going when you want to quit.
A personal trainer will show you how to do each exercise correctly and watch to insure you do it right. Doing an exercise incorrectly can cause injury or minimize its benefits.
While you’ll work hard, it will be fun with the help of a trainer. Trainers vary the exercises so you never get bored.
You’ll lose weight, but most importantly, when you exercise, you feel better and build your energy level and stamina. A healthy diet and regular exercise are the top two changes you can make to improve your health and keep you feeling and looking younger.
