Your Weight Loss Goal
Losing weight doesn’t need to be complicated. Although, it certainly can be. If you can control your calories by eating a good diet while burning off the excess and tone your muscles during exercise with your personal trainer, you’re home and dry.
Having a weight loss goal to work towards is just the beginning. Your personal trainer will be valuable to keep you focused and motivated on your weight loss journey. Depending on how many session you do, and how committed you are to your sessions and to your healthy diet, generally, you will begin to feel the effects quite soon. You will almost see your body shaping each day, you will first see the results as tightening of the tummy muscles. You will likewise recognise your thighs getting leaner, consequently you could fit in some of your old jeans by getting the zip to the top. When trying to lose weight, it’s tempting to ask for fast results. But studies have consistently shown that people who lose weight too fast end up getting ill and putting the weight back on again.
Everybody is different, pace yourself
The NHS recommend weight loss at a safe rate of 0.5kg – 1kg per week by staying within your daily calorie allowance of:
1,900 kcal for men
1,400 kcal for women.
You can set small weight-loss goals towards your new target weight. Unless you are under your doctor’s medical direction, losing weight fast can increase the likelihood of health problems, caused by undernourishment or even gallstones, and on top of that causing you to feel worn-out and under the weather for most of the day.
It’s about creating new habits, a new healthier lifestyle. Research shows that it typical takes about 12 weeks to form a new habit. We give you the right exercises within your workout to burn the fat. The precise quantities of body composition change depends on innumerable things as well as, what proportion of weight is fat, genes, the speed of your metabolism, current/ previous fitness levels, and your lifestyle choices.
After 6 weeks you will think that there is no more weight reduction, however if you stay consistent, as the results will come, as this is where the real journey begins.
Ideally, you should aim for a target weight that gives you a BMI in the healthy weight category for your height (18.5 to 24.9).
By sticking to this routine for three months, healthy eating and regular exercise will become habits, which are key to losing weight and keeping it off.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PERSONAL TRAINING?
A Personal Trainer is the best answer to your inconvenient fitness problems. We’ll come to your home, local Park or garden therefore it cannot get any more convenient than that.
We aim to ensure clients are performing high-quality exercises at exactly the right intensity to make the most of your precious exercise time, and to encourage you to eat a balanced diet – the right kinds of food at the right times of day.
Depending on the outcome you want, your fitness training should be tailored to suit. If you are trying to lose weight and ‘tone’ up, your fitness training will need to be more intense than if you were ‘getting over an injury’.

You can learn so much from your trainer. I learned that you cannot look at weight loss as a “diet” or something that you will only do for a few months until you get to your goal. I finally was able to understand that weight loss has to be a lifestyle change, and that once you get to your weight-loss goal, the journey doesn’t end there.
A personal trainers job is to motivate and inspire you to push far beyond the boundaries of your usual routine. You’ll challenge yourself. If you struggle to push yourself, with a personal trainer you will simply go much further to prove just that you just can go the extra mile. And you may finally face your biggest physical challenge.
