Portland Personal Trainer | Spot Reduction | Reducing That Fatty Area

As a Portland personal trainer I can't tell you how many times I've had a client tell me they want toLose fat or tone up a certain area of they're body. This is called "spot training" and unfortunately, it doesn't work. When you lose weight, you can't choose the area in which the reduction will occur. Your body predetermines which fat stores it will use. For example, doing sit-ups will strengthen your abs but will not take the fat off of your stomach. Or an activity like running burns fat all over your body, not just your legs. You can, compliment a balanced exercise program with certain weight training exercises to gradually lose weight and tone the entire body. The fact is, the only way to get a flat stomach is to strip away the fat around the midsection. This is done by a combination of cardio/aerobic exercise, strength training and following a proper diet. Abdominal exercises will help you build muscle in your core, but you will never see the muscle definition unless the fat in this area is "burned" off.The Art of Personal Training by Kisar Dhillon107 SE Washington Street, Suite 137Portland, Oregon 97214503-953-0241
