The programming will be the most efficient way for you to reach your goals with guidance, accountability and motivation provided by the personal trainer. The individualized program will take into account any limitations and provide alternatives focusing on areas of opportunity to target weakness or deficiencies. Focusing on functional training to reduce the risk of injury and subsequently chronic disease. The goal is to improve the quality of life whether your aim is to be a high level athlete or to have the energy and ability to play with your kids and grandkids.

Weight Loss

Weight Loss is achieved by a reduced caloric intake. However, while dieting, a reduced calorie intake will also lower your metabolic rate, which delays weight loss. On the contrary, regular exercise has been shown to increase your metabolic rate, which will burn more calories and help you lose weight. Combining aerobic exercise with resistance training can maximize fat loss and muscle mass maintenance, essential for keeping the weight off.

Improved Mental Health

Exercise has been shown to improve your mood and decrease feelings of depression, anxiety and stress. Additionally, exercise can increase the production of endorphins, which are known to help produce positive feelings and reduce the perception of pain. Regular exercise can help you relax and sleep better. Exercise has also been proven to boost sex drive. Engaging in regular exercise can strengthen the cardiovascular system, improve blood circulation, tone muscles and enhance flexibility, all of which can improve your sex life.

Increased Energy

Exercise can significantly boost energy levels. As people age, they tend to lose muscle mass and function, which can lead to injuries and disabilities. Practicing regular physical activity is essential to reducing muscle loss and maintaining strength as you age. Exercise helps build bone density when you’re younger, in addition to helping prevent osteoporosis later in life.

Improved Brain Function

Exercise can improve brain function and protect memory and thinking skills. It can also stimulate the production of hormones that can enhance the growth of brain cells. Moreover, the ability of exercise to prevent chronic disease can translate into benefits for your brain, since its function can be affected by these diseases. Chronic pain can be debilitating, but exercise can actually help reduce it. Physical activity can also raise pain tolerance and decrease pain perception.
