When potential clients first approach us many of them are simply interested in losing weight but by the time we explain the importance of helping your body burn fat and build muscle weight loss becomes a thing of the past!
The easiest way to burn fat is to watch what you eat and focus on a healthy eating program that includes protein and essential fats (omega 3, 6 and 9) while eating vegetables and fruit along with eating wholegrain carbs. You need to burn more than you eat. It is important you focus on your nutritional habits if you want to burn fat. We can help you put a nutritional eating program together that will suit your lifestyle.
You also want to engage in cardio to help you burn fat and most importantly you need to engage in strength training because that will really help your body burn off fat at a fast rate and best of all with strength training you continue to burn fat even after exercising if you are doing it correctly.

To help you build muscle you need to build strength and strength training plays a vital role in helping you do that. Exercises like squats and overhead press all help you build muscle and using olympic lifting will also help speed things up. Women tend to have less muscle mass than men so you really don’t have to worry about gaining huge muscles when you lose weight – it is a total myth that you bulk up unless you want to and aim for that. Otherwise what you end up with is defined muscles and a great looking body.
The best w ay to discover how much fat you need to lose is to take our bodymetrix assessment – this non-invasive machine measures the fat that is inside your body and gives us as personal trainers an accurate picture of what you need to do to burn fat.
