Making a commitment to fitness can be difficult. After all, it includes regular visits to the gym, forbidding ourselves the foods we love and constantly having a positive mindset. The team here at Fitness Training Solutions know how difficult it can be to make such a commitment which is why a lot of people tend to yo-yo diet. This is the term given to dieters who are on and off a healthy eating plan their whole lives without ever managing to gain the lifestyle they desire. Fret not! In this blog, we’re going to tell you a few secrets about fitness commitment…

  1. Forget about fads

Fad diets such as the 5:2 diet do nothing for you except cause you misery. This diet consists of participants eating their normal calorie requirement for five days and then limiting it to 500 calories for the remaining two days. Proper nutrition and calorie consumption is key to staying motivated during fitness and the occasional sweet treat is recommended for morale.

  1. Weight lifting is important

Lifting weights will not making you bulk up like a body builder no matter how many times you are told it will. In fact, the more muscle mass we have, the more calories we will burn when we are at rest. The only way you will gain a lot of muscle mass is by having a very strict diet that allows for it so remember to include weights in your program!

  1. Stay away from the scales

Looking at the scales and not seeing the numbers decrease is one of the many reasons that people will give up on their fitness endeavours which is why the Fitness Training Solutions team advise you to hide your scales! This is because we are normally losing fat yet gaining muscle, causing the the numbers on the scales to not change much even though our bodies look amazing.

Being a fitness trainer is a lot more than motivating clients; its helping them understand every single aspect of fitness and allowing them to also reap the benefits of fitness commitment. Our fitness instructor courses not only teach you how to become an amazing fitness instructor, but they also teach you how to help clients who may not be able to commit to a workout program easily.
