The First Step Towards Weightloss

So you are overweight. This has been confirmed to you by your doctor, the weighing scales and perhaps even the way you feel. But by being here it is clear that you want to make a change. You clearly understand the risks of being overweight… increase risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes. All of these factors make it less likely you will live to an age where you can get to know your grandchildren and live a long happy life.

As a personal Trainer my job is to reduce the risk of you getting all of the aforementioned disease by getting you fitter and helping you lose weight. As a client your job is to watch what you eat, its quite simple. Let me explain.

Us humans have come a long way since running round with sticks and stones trying to bludgeon animals to death which was very energy consuming. Nowadays the most energy we consume is walking around the supermarket trying to find the best offers or perhaps a bit of romance of an evening if your both not “too tired”. Food has also become highly energy dense. Both these things mean that many of us if we are not careful run a calorie surplus. Combine this with the fact that our bodies are excellent at storing excess energy… what do you get? WEIGHT GAIN.
