If you don't like gyms then online personal training could help you become a fitter, stronger, healthier version of yourself. Body weight exercises can be challenging & with the addition of some inexpensive equipment that doesn't require lots of space you can train the same muscle groups at home.
Training at home can also save travel time getting to & from the gym, so if you are short on time this may be the option for you.
Change Body Composition
Body weight isn’t always the best monitor of health or training progress. You can stay the same weight but increase muscle mass & decrease body fat. This means you are making progress to be stronger & healthier although on traditional scales you might not see the improvement.
Measuring your waist & hips to record your waist to hips ratio whenever you start a new program is important to gauging the efficacy of that particular program to reaching your individual goals. Using scales that measure body weight, body fat %, basal metabolic rate, as well as taking body measurements, resting heart rate and blood pressure we will work together to track your progression in order to see what is working and what needs improvement or changing. Taking progress photos can also help YOU see the small slow changes that happen over time.
The true coach app enables us to track your progress and see how well you are getting on.
You don't have to be an aspiring athlete or body builder to want to build muscle and you don't need to be scared of building too much muscle. It doesn't happen overnight or by accident. Gaining or losing muscle is a very slow process,(AT BEST you can hope for is 1.5% of your body weight gain per month) so it works best if you're not in a rush & trust in the process
Freedom of movement is important for everyone. It is also very different for everyone. In order to keep as mobile as possible your whole life, having a good daily mobility routine is vital especially as we get older. Spending too long sitting down working at a desk or sitting on the sofa can cause muscles to become tight and restrict your range of movement. This can lead to increased risk of injuries if you perform a movement beyond what a muscle has become used to. This is why daily movement is so important. Making small but constant progress is good, so if you have tight muscles stretch often and see how quickly you see improvement.
Find The Time
You don't have to find lots of time for exercise, but you do need to make it a priority to find some.
If you are time poor, you may only be able to spare 90 mins per week. If that is the case, rather than once a week trip to the gym for 90 mins, 3 x 30 min home workouts would probably be more beneficial.
