Each goal will benefit from exercise in a variety of ways…
Weight and Fat Loss
Most of our clients tend to be seeking weight and fat loss; exercise is an amazingly useful tool to help us achieve this!
Without overcomplicating things, it comes down to this; calories in vs calories out.
To burn fat, we must have more calories out than in. It is as simple as that.
By partaking in Body Shape Fitness’ exercise sessions in Ely, your body will be using those calories as fuel for the workout. The more intense and frequently you do the exercise, the more calories will be burned.
Now if you burn more calories than you’ve consumed that day, your body must find fuel from elsewhere in your body to continue functioning. We help ensure that it’ll find these calories by predominantly breaking down your fat.
In short, exercise helps with weight and fat loss, as it makes you burn more calories, if you burn more calories than consumed that day, it’ll burn your fat for fuel.
Reducing your body fat will definitely help make you look more toned, as you will look leaner and your muscle will look more defined.
To help enhance this toned body further and make your muscles more defined (if this is a goal for yours!)
The key element here to take advantage here is progressive overload. I.e. demanding more from your body over time.
An example of progressive overload might be the following; session 1 = 1 push up, session 2 = 2 push ups, session 3 = 4 push ups and so on and so forth.
When you demand more from your body, your body adapts in preparation for that increased demand next time, however next time you demand even more from it and then it must adapt again and so on and so forth; resulting in stronger, more defined muscles.
Improved Body Shape
We’ve discussed weight loss, fat loss and toning and how exercise can help achieve those things; all of which will change your body shape.
By doing exercise with us at Body Shape Fitness, you’ll likely end up with a body shape that is leaner, more toned and stronger body.
Strength, flexibility, mobility
If your goals aren’t so much focused on the way you look but rather on the way you feel, exercise is also highly important.
A key factor to consider when we make a client’s personalized exercise programme is their ability level.
Your best is the best, and as long as you’re giving us your best that’s all we can ask for.
With that considered, exercise can be utilized to improve your strength, flexibility and mobility by gauging where you are comfortable with certain exercises, seeing what your body can do currently, and then slowly starting to ask your body to do just a little more every session.
Whether that be to; lift a slightly heavier weight than last week; stretch that little bit further than last week; bring your knees that little bit higher than last week.
This progression will end up with a stronger, more flexible and more mobile version of yourself. Simply by just progressing little by little every week, until your body feels completely different and unrecognizable!
Physical and mental health
Doing exercise will do leaps and bounds for your physical health;
- Carrying less weight
- improving your fitness levels
- helping you improve the health of your heart, lungs, muscles, joints, ligaments etc
- MANY MORE BENEFITS
It also helps with your mental health;
- giving you more energy
- positivity from meeting and having a laugh with friendly people
- releasing positive chemicals in the brain
- increased confidence as a result of the fat loss
- MANY MORE BENEFITS
2 - Nutrition
What you are consuming will affect your results massively. If you want a body transformation, if you want to lose weight, if you want to have that lean, toned body, you must consider your nutrition.
As mentioned earlier in the exercise part of this article, to lose weight and fat, you must have more calories going out than coming in.
You can either burn those calories via exercise to increase the number of calories going out OR you can manage the number of calories coming in.
The Biggest Problem with Diets and Nutritional Programmes
Now here is the CRUCIAL factor regarding nutritional programmes, YOU MUST ENJOY IT!
Too many ‘diets’ and nutrition programmes out there; deprive, restrict and starve you in order to try get you a body transformation.
Yes, you need to be in a calorific deficit, i.e. more calories out than in
- That doesn’t mean you need to have 1000s of calories less than you’re currently having
- That doesn’t mean you need to ban yourself from having all the food and drink you love
- That doesn’t mean you need to follow some diet for a few weeks/months and hate the whole process
What usually happens if you do the above?
- You go on a restrictive ‘diet’ and just cheat throughout it because you crave the food and drink you love. The result – poor results
- You go on a restrictive ‘diet’, follow it religiously, hate the process, get to the end date, stuff yourself full of all the food and drink you’ve missed so much and craved. The result – poor results
What does Body Shape Fitness do instead?
We create a personalized, tailored and flexible nutrition programme, which teachs you how to eat and drink all the foods/drinks you love to consume and STILL GET RESULTS!
We calculate what your specific calorific intake should be (which isn’t restrictive, most clients are often surprised at how much they can eat!) and also what your macronutrient ratio should be (the ratio of protein/carbs/fats consumed), as this ensures the weight lost is predominantly from your fat, not your muscles!
Now don’t worry if this sounds complicated, it is crucial for you to have an incredible body transformation, but we will do as much as physically possible to take as much stress and effort out of your hands - so you can ENJOY THE PROCESS!
As if you truly enjoy the process, it’ll become a long-term solution for you.
We also educate you on everything regarding nutrition so you have a good understanding for the rest of your life!
3 - Accountability and Coaching
This element is often over-looked but is CRUCIAL in your body transformation. It will;
1) ensure you finish our 6-week transformation challenge in the best shape of your life
2) ensure that you keep the results you’ve achieved on the 6 week transformation challenge for the rest of your life!
Why is accountability and coaching important?
- Because people understand they need to do exercise to get the body they want.
- Because people understand they need to eat healthy to get the body they want.
So why don’t they have the body they want?
- Because they don’t do those things
- OR they don’t do those things consistently enough
- OR they’re doing the wrong exercise/nutrition for their body and their goals
The coaching is important to ensure that you are actually doing the correct exercises for your body/ability level/goals and to ensure that you are following a nutrition programme that is enjoyable, doable and actually yields fantastic results!
The accountability is important to ensure that you actually do the exercise and that you follow the nutrition programme consistently for 6 weeks, so that after the 6 week transformation challenge, you will have a habit that’s cemented with you for life!
If you are given the correct exercise and nutrition programme for you and your goals, and are then supported and motivated to ensure you follow that programme – you will have LIFE CHANGING RESULTS in just 6 weeks’ time.
We ensure you turn up to training and we ensure you are continuing to eat healthily within the programme guidelines, so that we can guarantee you will have the body you’ve always dreamed of in 6 weeks’ time.
