Nate Call today Nathaniel Dilworth, Personal Trainer and Certified Nutrition Consultant Shares Post Workout Nutrition

A vital part of any workout, whether alone or with a personal trainer, is your post-workout nutrition. Reaching for your favorite snack food, rationalizing that you’ve earned it, or that you can afford the empty calories since you’ve burned so many from the workout, is is a very counter-productive mindset. The best thing you can do for yourself is to remain consistent in your goals and follow them through during the post-workout period.  Working out with a personal trainer is a very good way to stay consistent and to reach your fitness and weight loss goals.

Whether engaging in a simple cardio exercise or a strenuous training regimen, warming up is essential. Without a proper warm-up, you’re placing yourself at increased risk for sprains, cramps or injuries. A proper warm up can increase the blood flow to the working muscle which results in decreased muscle stiffness, less risk of injury and improved performance.warm up1 Are You Warm Enough?

Why San Antonio Fitness Boot Camp?

bootcamp Why San Antonio Fitness Boot Camp?

A growing trend in the fitness industry are boot camp style classes in which participants are encouraged to physically push the limits of what they accomplish during their workout. Classes can take place inside a traditional gym or outside, weather permitting and can vary greatly in size.  The benefits of boot camp classes are numerous and well recognized.
First of all, working out in a supportive environment that pushes your boundaries will help prevent excuses for why you can’t accomplish your fitness goals from surfacing in your head. Many times people rationalize reasons why they can’t push themselves at the gym, and this causes them to simply stay in their comfort zones and not progress. Although a boot camp may seem scary at first, it will ultimately help you reach your personal fitness goals more quickly.
The group atmosphere will increase your motivation to keep going after whatever goals you’ve set out to accomplish.  Working out with a group of people with a similar drive to improve or maintain their fitness will build a sense of camaraderie that will stifle any urge to give in to an excuse to not attend. Most boot camp fitness programs run several weeks long so spending several weeks with the same crew should definitely get one motivated to push themselves and build new friendships.
Finally, by actually paying for the class you are ensuring that no excuse holds you back. After all, why pay for a class and not attend? That would just rob you of not only your money, but the many benefits of boot camp classes. Use the fact you’ve made the commitment (not only mentally but financially) as leverage to get as many of the benefits as possible from the instructor and the class.
