Personal Trainers Portland Oregon | Sleep and Fat Loss | Stress and Weight Gain

You have always heard you need to get your eight hours of sleep, but with work, kids, STRESS and other internal and external factors; it can be very challenging. It does not matter what you type of work you do, even when being a Portland personal trainer and working all day or having split shifts. When you are working client after a client, especially if you are starting early in the morning, it can be very challenging to get the proper amount of rest, and that is why naps are so important. As with the medical community, your Medical Doctors, D.C., acupuncturist, massage therapist, and eastern medicine doctor, it is one of the main topics of discussion.Sleep is when the body is able to restore itself and get back to homeostasis. The body needs time to grow, repair, decompress, relax and overall, get those Cortisol levels back to par. When we don't sleep due to stress, our body is never fully restored, which can create other variables to cause the body to be in shock. When we don't sleep we will load up on caffeine, energy drinks, etc. Furthermore, this can increase irritability and not being able to concentrate due to lack of sleep. After a certain of duration of repeating this pattern, the body will start to go into shock, which can affect the cortisol levels that can cause you to have cravings that are not beneficial to your body. Such as: craving sweets, fried fatty foods and even alcohol type of beverages. It can become a viscous cycle that will eventually make your sick, depressed, etc.For example, when cortisol increases, it can make you want to ingest more fatty foods and sugary types of products. When this habit occurs, especially over a long period of time, it can create increases in weight, body fat percentage and body mass index. We have access to the best types of foods, best physicians, natural eastern medicine techniques and personal trainers in Portland, so you need to use what you have available to you.One of the biggest concerns we have is when our clients consume a lot of their calories in the form of liquid, especially when they are traveling for business or at dinners with their clients. It can be challenging to say no to an alcoholic beverage when you are with colleagues or with a potential client. You want to impress them and make them feel comfortable, but too many nights of drinking, not sleeping and then trying to be at the top of your game will only create your body to go into shock, and may cause you to gain body fat, inches and weight. The Art of Personal Training by Kisar Dhillon107 SE Washington Street, Suite 137Portland, Oregon 97214(503) 953-0241
