Seattle Personal Trainers

Seattle personal trainers can provide a program to help get you back on the road to good health. Your doctor may have prescribed exercise and a healthy diet. Most doctors only have one class in nutrition and in most cases, none in exercises. Doctors are experts in spotting diseases and maladies and getting you back to good health, not in diet and exercise. So, he probably suggested you go to a nutritionist, personal trainer or just try it on your own using a pamphlet or a copy of a diet with some suggested exercises. While a nutritionist can help you with the dietary changes, a personal trainer with certification in nutrition can help you with both dietary changes and an exercise program.

Personal trainers first listen to your goals and learn of any special needs.

If you have physical problems, such as problems with your knees, you won't be able to do the same exercises as most people or do them the same way. A personal trainer accommodates your limitations by offering alternative ways of doing exercises or strengthening a specific muscle group. Not everyone has the same goals either. One person may want to get fitter and stronger while another may want to lose weight. The trainer also considers that when he or she maps out a program for your health.

You won't get a diet from a personal trainer, but learn how to eat healthier.

Real weight loss is permanent and it takes a permanent solution. Dieting isn't a permanent solution because a diet always ends. You have to change your eating habits to have pounds disappear forever. Personal trainers show you ways to make small changes that add up to real calorie savings combined. It may be something as simple as having a healthy, lower calorie snack, such as an apple, available to help you avoid the candy machine at work. Sometimes personal trainers show you how to cook healthier and may even have a way to change the recipe for your favorite food so it's far lower in calories.

Combine a healthy diet with regular exercise and you have a recipe for good health and weight loss.

Exercising not only helps burn calories, it can also provide other benefits. One of them is to build muscle tissue, which burns more calories than fat tissue does, so it raises your metabolism and makes it easier to lose weight. Both a healthy diet and exercise can lower your blood pressure and help you control your sugar levels. It's one of the best medicines that doesn't come in a bottle.

Weight bearing exercises not only build muscle tissue, they also build bone tissue and may even reverse damage done by osteoporosis.

Regular exercise can help you sleep better. When you sleep, your body repairs itself and you awaken refreshed and ready for a new day.

Exercise is a stress buster. It burns off the harmful hormones created by stress and replaces them with ones that make you feel good.

You'll feel great after working out. Not only do you feel good from the endorphins, dopamine and other hormones created by exercise, you'll also have a better self-image.
