CAN’T LOSE WEIGHT? FITNESS EXPERTS EXPLAIN WHY.
Trainers are hired to help people reach their fitness and weight loss goals—and genuinely want everyone to succeed. So when clients counteract their own efforts, it can be frustrating. We asked trainers to vent to us about their biggest pet peeves and we think you’ll agree that there’s a lot to learn others’ mistakes. And in turn, you’ll increase your odds of getting the results you’ve been working for. Once you’ve made these simple fixes, keep your efforts going with the help of these 25 Weight Loss Tips From The World’s Fittest Men.
1- YOU SKIMP ON SLEEP:
“The average American already doesn’t get enough sleep, and when we begin training, we need even more of it to properly recover. Additionally, while we’re sleeping, our body releases powerful fat-burning hormones that speed weight loss. I don’t care if it’s 15 more minutes or two hours, every extra minute of shut-eye will help you reach your goal that much faster. Plus, if you’re already in bed, you’re less likely to succumb to those late-night food temptations!” – Chris Powell, CSCS, trainer and transformation specialist on ABC’s Extreme Weight Loss
2-YOU’RE BEING DISHONEST
“When clients aren’t honest about what they’re eating or how much they’re working out on their own, it can affect the progress they’re seeing. And as a trainer, you really need and want to hear the truth to ensure that your clients see the results they want. Once we take an honest assessment of the actual goal, we can better understand what it takes to get there and how much discipline and work a client needs to be done outside of the gym.” – Jim White RD, ACSM HFS, Owner of Jim White Fitness and Nutrition Studios
