Personal Training and Stress Management
The most effective weapon and the most effective treatment against the symptoms of Stress, is….EXERCISE!
Study after study has consistently shown exercise to be virtually unrivaled as the No.1 effective treatment or outlet for individuals suffering from the physical symptoms of Stress.
Stress can have wide ranging effects on emotions, mood and behavior. Equally important but often less appreciated are effects on various systems, organs and tissues all over the body, as illustrated by the diagram.
Researchers are beginning to uncover answers to how non-exercise variables including lack of sleep, inadequate nutrition and high stress levels can significantly affect hormone levels that impact exercise recovery, weight management and health.
It’s true — medical research shows that people who exercise regularly experience lower levels of stress and depression. What’s more, clinical studies show exercise provides a more relaxed, productive mental outlook, helps concentration, and improves self-esteem.
In as little as 20 minutes a day, 3 times a week, a Personal Trainer can show you how a total body workout can reduces stress, boosts your energy, and increases your body’s own mood-enhancing chemicals called endorphins. So instead of coming to the end of your rope, you’ll be in control of your life and feel better than ever. And you’ll look great, too!
It all starts with a personal consultation where we get to know you — your lifestyle and your fitness goals. With your trainer you’ll review your diet and weight loss/gain history. What diets have you tried? What are your personal obstacles? With your fitness trainer, you’ll review strength, cardio, nutritional and lean muscle goals, learn about your metabolic rate and muscle-to-fat ratios. Working together, your personal fitness trainer will design a fitness program that’s individualized for your age, body, life style that will help you achieve your fitness goals.
