Seattle Weight Loss Bootcamp

Seattle Boot CampIf you've tried to lose weight before and failed, consider going to a Seattle weight loss bootcamp. Boot camps can give you a quick start to weight loss, but also have many other benefits. Personal trainers run boot camps and can provide the expertise guidance you need for permanent weight loss. A boot camp is also a very economical way to secure the benefits of having a personal trainer. You get all the benefits of private sessions, but since everyone shares the cost of the trainer's time, it's far less per capita.

The personal trainer designs a program specifically for your needs.

Before you start the program, the trainer may have you do a few exercises to assess your level of fitness and identify weaker muscle groups. He or she will listen to your goals and find out if you have any special needs. These could be physical limitations or lifestyle limitations, such as extensive travel. Only then does the trainer design a program for each participant in the boot camp. Each person's program will challenge the individual, but still be within his or her capabilities.

You'll learn a wide variety of exercises and never be bored.

Women in Seattle Boot CampSometimes when you work out at a gym, you go through the same routine repeatedly. It may mean moving from one exercise machine to another or doing exercises to a video at home. That can get pretty boring. When you attend a boot camp, no two days are alike. You'll not only learn a wide variety of exercises, you'll learn how to do them right. The trainer first shows you how to do each exercise and then watches to insure you have the proper form. No video can do that! You'll have a treasure trove of exercises to use after boot camp ends.

Some boot camps offer nutritional advice too.

Personal trainers knowledgeable in nutrition often offer advice on how to eat healthier. The trainer doesn't provide a diet, because diets simply don't work. They're restrictive and difficult if you have meals with your family or eat in restaurants frequently. They also always end. Then you gain back the weight you lost because you go back to old eating habits that put it on in the first place. Instead personal trainers show you how to eat healthier and make wiser food selections. It's a lifestyle change that keeps weight off permanently.

You'll feel more refreshed and happier after working out at a boot camp. Exercise burns off hormones created by stress, such as cortisol---which is often associated with the accumulation of abdominal fat. It also stimulates the body to create hormones that make you feel happier.

You'll have more energy to be more active after just a few weeks at a boot camp. The more active you are, the more calories you burn.

Exercise and diet gives fat a double whammy. A healthy diet lowers caloric intake and exercise burns extra calories. It also increases muscle tissue, which burns more calories than fat tissue does.

There's plenty of comradery at a boot camp. Not only does it make it more enjoyable, it holds you more accountable for attending. People miss you when you're not there.
