MAKE THE NECESSARY LIFESTYLE ADJUSTMENTS TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS!
We would all like a quick fix or a magic potion to get the fitness gains we desire, which is why many people jump onto the latest "6-week body blast" programme or follow the latest fad diet. Viewing health and fitness as a short term project however is the wrong approach, is your life a short term project?
Most people can lose weight in the short term but what happens when you reach your goal or your programme ends? The truth is that most of the exercise and diet regimes offered are simply not sustainable and individuals revert back to the same habits and regain the weight they lost. (plus, on average another 10%!). Cutting calories does not work in the long-term, calories are not the problem, the quality of your food is!. Weight gain is influenced by many different factors that determine what, when and how you eat, (think food processing, marketing and availability) because of this weight loss can be difficult to maintain. To maintain weight loss in the long term the quality of what you eat is paramount as this has a major impact upon the hormones that drive fat storage.
The key to a successful training programme is to get the body to a point where exercise and better nutrition is not an extraordinary event or a short-term project but a lifestyle change. To do this a training programme has to be more than just exercise and cutting calories, it should give equal consideration to lifestyle, good nutritional habits and psychological well-being. Keeping fitness gains beyond the initial programme requires a holistic approach to encourage permanent change.
This is where I offer the opportunity for more than just traditional personal training. What I offer is the opportunity for Lifestyle Adjustment to support the attainment of individual goals. This approach provides a clear framework of support and resources within 4 distinct Life Zones to create the opportunity for lifelong peak fitness.
If you have tried training before and not achieved your goals, if you have tried to lose (or gain) weight and not achieved your desired target then this is the approach for you.
The Lifestyle Adjustment model is both a visual representation and a practical resource that focuses on key areas that can be adjusted within 4 distinct life zones to create the opportunity for lifelong peak fitness. Each zone has a vital role to play in the holistic health and fitness of each client and offers different techniques and resources to support the attainment of individual goals.
