If you want to give your metabolism a kick start, start your day with a workout. This will help you start your day feeling refreshed, as well as eliminating the possibility of skipping your gym session after a difficult day. The more times you must convince yourself that you shouldn’t go to the gym, the less likely you will go! This will also help keep you energised and awake throughout the day and it’s also much better for you than those calorie-dense artisan coffees.
Don’t just stick with the Cardio
Celeb Trainer: Ramona Braganza
Celeb Clients: Halle Berry, Jessica Alba, Kate Beckinsale
If you want to drop a few kg’s and keep them off- don’t just focus on cardio, or cardio based HIIT. Try to incorporate strength training into your gym routine. This will help keep you from being skinny fat, which could make you feel depressed after all that effort in the gym. It’s important to remember that strength training won’t make you bulky as most people believe. It will help give you definition, and if incorporated correctly, will help you achieve a curvy look.
Don’t be afraid of food
Celeb Trainer: Kathy Kaehler
Celeb Client: Jennifer Aniston
Fasting doesn’t really do anyone with serious weight loss or toning goals any favours. For weight loss, it’s generally advised to be in a calorie deficit of 500 calories (below your maintenance calories), but a substantial calorie cut below this will cause weight gain. If you cut too many calories out of your diet, your metabolism will slow down, which will lead to binge eating session as you feel more deprived. Fuelling your muscles are vital for your training efforts to be sustainable.
A solution is to have smaller meals, frequently throughout the day. Sustain yourself by eating when you’re hungry- not when you’re bored!
