All these women are 68kg. The woman on the left is around 35% body fat, while the woman on the right is 18%.
Why Am I Not Losing Fat?
Many people think that they can simply go on a diet and lose weight. The truth is, there are many factors involved in becoming healthy and to lose fat —from the way you eat to your emotional state of mind! A personal trainer will work closely with their client so as not only to help them reach fitness goals, lose fat, but also achieve an overall improvement through lifestyle transformations.
Our personal trainers will focus on increasing physical activity levels, improved eating habits and stress management techniques.
“One of the biggest misconceptions of many clients is the difference between fat loss and weight loss,” says the owner of RAW Personal Training, Jeremy Meyer. RAW is the longest established one-on-one personal training gym in Hong Kong.
So, how can working with a personal trainer on a personalised program that involves a nutrition plan help you to quickly lose fat while achieving a healthy, strong and lean body?
Strength training and cardiovascular workout stress the body. The body responds by adapting to that stress. The stress from exercise must be progressive to create long-term, sustainable and favourable results.
Our personal trainers focus on teaching perfect technique with all strength training movement. We use a slow and steady progression of movement according to the client’s level of experience. Strength training performed correctly will help you build muscle, increase strength, increase metabolism and prevent injuries.
You don’t get leaner by shaving off fat in the gym if you eat or drink whatever you want after you leave. Our nutritionist provides clients with a personalised nutrition plan.
Body Fat Distribution Tells a Bigger Story
There are different types of fat distribution, and different types are associated with specific nutritional or hormonal imbalances. There’s no doubt that it is harder to lose and easier to store body fat in a fast-paced, populated city like Hong Kong.
Do you store fat around the belly? You’re probably a stress bucket.
On the sides of your body? You could be insulin insensitive or have a high intake of dietary carbohydrates.
How about in your lower body? You might have trouble detoxifying.
Three Ways to Improve Body Composition and Lose Fat
Fix existing chronic issues that contribute to inflammation.
Take care of your heartburn, indigestion, chronic stress, adrenal fatigue, recurring injuries and sleep. You will find that your body will recover faster, experience fewer food cravings, and improve digestion, thus improving your motivation to train and eat better. Our personal trainers and nutritionist cover all these issues during our 90-minute initial assessment.
You can’t out-train a poor diet. You can train four days a week and eat healthy four to five out of seven days, but if you stray too much from the nutrition plan on the weekend, results will be slow. Be consistent with your nutrition. Choose high quality, nutrient-dense whole foods, such as pasture-raised meats and organic vegetables. Avoid processed food and foods that you are intolerant to.
Optimise Fat Loss
Choose metabolic resistance training or perform a high volume of work using strength training movements with short rest periods to optimise faster fat loss.
Choose higher intensity and volume resistance training to induce a favourable endocrine response to exercise. Using challenging weights for high repetitions will induce lactic acid, responsible for releasing growth hormones, helping you burn more fat. Full-body workouts in a superset, tri-set, or circuit format with non-competing exercises create the most significant metabolic demand. But your training must be done in a challenging rep range, with an intensity that generates lactic acid and pushes the lactic acid threshold.
Stop Worrying About Number on a Scale
The biggest secret to losing fat fast is to stop obsessing with the scale. If your goal is to lose fat, prioritise your training and nutrition around fat loss, not weight loss. Improve your body composition by addressing gut health, stress, nutrition and chronic aches and pains. By reducing systemic inflammation first, you will speed up your rate of fat loss.
Please book an appointment with a RAW Personal Trainer at our one to one private fitness gym in central to see how we can help you manage inflammation, nutrition and create a customised program for you to lose fat safely.
