What we can control | Portland Personal Trainer
Even though you are working out and crushing in the personal training studio, everyone needs to be accountable for what they are putting in their mouth. It is the small changes that everyone needs to make in order to create those lasting results. When someone sees a person completely leaned out or is super ripped, they always ask, how did they get that way. Well, it is a combination of things.
- They are training hard and on a consistent basis. They are also making sure that when they do train, they are out of their comfort zone. Meaning, they are giving it their all when they are performing their fitness regimen. This is one of the reasons why hiring a Portland personal trainer or fitness professional is so important. We keep our clients always out of their comfort zone, because we know that will create optimal results.
- Food intake is super important, but this can also be very emotional for people, especially if they never had to monitor their food intake, or it is out of control. Start out with simple changes: add a vegetable and cut out your white starches. I am not saying to cut our your carbohydrates, but do your best to supplement them with fresh fruits an vegetables throughout the day. In addition, drink as much water as you can. Water is the number 1 fluid you can drink!
- Rest: Make sure you are getting plenty of rest! Results are created when you are letting the body rest. Yes, the mechanism to creating results is the program you are doing, but if you do not let the body, heal and recover, you will end doing more harm than good. Rest is important and your body will thank you for it.
- Genetics: some people will have better genetics than others and we cannot do anything about this. Even the best bodybuilders that use anabolics, the ones that usually win those body building contests already had a great foundation due to great genetics. When you have natural enhancements, it just makes those key attributes even better. For those of us that were not blessed with those excellent fitness & body building genes, we need to work extra hard at attaining our health and fitness goals. There is nothing wrong with that, it just makes us more diligent in what we do and want to accomplish.
