Can Fitness Training with a Personal Trainer help me Lose Weight?
Experts agree that personal trainers can help determine the right exercise program for you in order to help you lose weight and regain your health. Personal trainers also keep you on the right track, motivating you to succeed and reach your weight loss goals. A personal trainer will know which exercises you should perform to lose the weight and keep the weight off.
Studies show that individuals, especially beginners, who exercise under the supervision of a personal trainer have fewer injuries and are more likely to lose weight than those who exercise unsupervised.
Together with Personal Trainer Houston, you can reach your weight loss goals.
Can I Lose Weight without a Personal Trainer?
Sure you can, but it might take longer. To train alone, you have to keep yourself motivated and research the safest and most effective fitness programs for your particular body type.
In a nutshell, weight loss works like this:
Weight loss goals are measured in calories, which are units of energy. One pound of fat equals 3500 calories. In other words, you must either burn 3500 calories, eliminate 3500 calories from your diet, or some combination of both to lose 1 pound.
3500 calories = 1 pound fat
The number of calories you burn during each minute of exercise is dependant on several factors, including your body type, your weight, and the type of exercise you perform. Now you see where a personal trainer can help. A personal trainer determines the best fitness training program for you so that you can maximize your weight loss potential.
Personal trainers keep you from wasting your valuable time and energy on exercises that are not helping you reach your weight loss goals.
What are the Health Benefits of Fitness Training for Weight Loss?
Losing weight by exercising with a fitness trainer may reduce your risk of developing the following conditions:
- type 2 diabetes
- high blood pressure
- heart disease
- "bad" cholesterol
- gallbladder disease
- sleep apnea
- endometrial, breast, and colon cancer
In addition, you will feel better about yourself—stronger and more confident. Your clothes will fit better, and you will be more comfortable showing off more of your fabulous new body.
What Kind of a Commitment Does Fitness Training Require?
To maximize weight loss, you should commit to at least an hour a day, three days per week. The more you train, the more weight you will lose. However, even adding one or two days of training is better than none.
