Top 5 Things To Consider Before Hiring A Personal Trainer

Know What You Want: Personal trainers are great for helping you reach your goals but in order to get the results you want you to need to know what you want. You could opt in for a personal boxing trainer, jiu-jitsu trainer, cross fit trainer, and so on. Be sure you know what activity you want to participate in to burn those calories.

Location: Make sure that you find a facility that is near you. There will be enough distractions and things to prevent you from going, don’t let travel time create an unnecessary obstacle for you. If you live in Tucson, consider hiring a personal trainer in Tucson rather than hiring one in Phoenix.

Personality: You are going to be spending a lot of time with this individual, better make sure you can stand them. Think of it like working with a co-worker, nobody wants to work with a co-worker that is a jerk, this is very similar. Find someone that you vibe with and whose personality is one you can work with.

Commit: If you are going to do this, commit to it and don’t give up. This can be a life-changing event for the better and you will need to commit if you want to reach your goals. There are going to be multiple commitments. You will need to commit to yourself, your trainer, the process, the timeline, diet, and exercise.

Finish: If you start the journey, finish it! Set goals, keep track of your progress and finish it. Nothing kills morale like losing 15 pounds and gaining it back. Take your time and expect that it will be a few months to see results.

Why Hiring A Personal Trainer Is Good For You

Tucson GymPersonally, I think hiring a personal trainer is the best thing you could do. For weight loss or training for a competition, or just to maintain good health. Going to the gym with a friend or partner to help you stay focused, provide extra motivation and encouragement can be all the difference between having a successful workout and not having one. This also holds true if you are not familiar with a gym and what exercises are needed to target fat loss and fitness goals. At the very least, reach out to a personal trainer in your area and hold a discussion about your goals, timeline, and even budget. Being transparent during these talks will help the person on the other side provide you the guidance you need to win.

Top 10 Tips For Losing Weight Before Summer


Ten Tips to Lose Weight for Summer

Lose Weight Before Summer

Summer is almost here and you will want to look your best for swimsuit season. If you’re like most people, you have those few stubborn pounds you just can’t seem to lose. There are many different ways to try to lose weight and while not all methods work for all people, there may a trick or two that might help you do the trick. Here are ten ways, both conventional and unconventional, to assist in your weight loss goals. If you live in Tucson, Arizona and want to join a Tucson Gym, or hire a personal trainer you can head on over to our website at https://boxingincorporated.com/ to find out more about or Gyms, the programs we offer and meet some of our personal trainers. 

Water, water, and water. You’ve probably heard this one before, but our bodies consist of mostly water and it is imperative that we replenish the water we lose each day. When we drink at least 8 ounces at least 8 times per day, not only are we rehydrating ourselves, but studies show that drinking water increases the rate at which we burn calories. You should drink at least one glass of water before you eat, as well; this will help with digestion and help you to feel fuller, sooner.

Cut out unhealthy drinks. We tend to consume a lot of our calories through drinks, mostly sugary sodas, juices and even the contents of our coffee. Try infusing water with lemon or cucumber, or flavored water with zero calories as an alternative to sugary drinks. Don’t substitute diet soda thinking you will cut down on the calories; diet sodas have proven to be worse than regular soda! While fruit juice may have “fruit” in its name, it is full of sugar, adding inches to your waistline. And if you consume coffee, drink it black; the sugar and creamer are full of calories. Enjoy having a few cocktails?  Eliminating alcohol will help you cut out unnecessary calories. If you must enjoy a libation, try limiting yourself to one day per week, and try drinking straight tequila. Tequila has been shown to have weight loss attributes, and you will drink much less of it than you would beer or wine. If you prefer other alcohol, drink them without mixers; many contain lots of sugar.

Meal Prep. Yes, prepping your meals for the week is all the rage, and for good reason. If you take the time to prepare healthy foods for the week, you are controlling the ingredients, and this puts you in charge of your caloric intake. If you prepare dinner in advance for the week and all you have to do is reheat it, you are less likely to fall into the “let’s-just-call-for-take-out” when you’re tired after a long day. Prepare protein and lots of veggies and even healthy snacks, that way you won’t grab some cookies or chips to get you through the day. If you only have good choices on hand, you will have to go out of your way to get the “bad stuff”.  And speaking of bad stuff, avoid the fatty, calorie-laden fast food. Convenient, yes. Fattening, definitely. If you need a little help preparing your meals and counting calories, you can always hire a personal trainer to help you create a meal plan and monitor your caloric intake.

Lose Weight Before Summer

Get Moving. By making even the smallest changes in your routine, you can kill some calories and in turn, lose the weight. Like many Americans, we sit all day—at work, in our cars, in front of the TV—the trick is to get more exercise in, even if it is in small doses. Park in the furthest parking spot in the lot so you add extra steps to your journey; take the stairs instead of the elevator, and don’t keep snacks and drinks within reach. If you’re thirsty while working, make sure to get up and get water; don’t keep it handy. This will force you to get moving. Walk your dog around the block, or do some squats while you’re cooking your meals. Small steps equal big caloric burns if you’re consistent.

Exercise, But Set a Timer.  What list of weight loss goals would be complete without exercise? To make sure you don’t feel overwhelmed by the thought of exercising, start small. Set a time for two minutes and run in place, or do some exercises. Then, go do something else. Thirty minutes later, take another two minutes and get your heart rate going. Or, if you go to a gym to exercise, give yourself a time limit to burn a set number of calories. This will give you a goal to achieve and will intensify your short workout. You’ll find you have more time and you won’t dread an exercise routine.

Put Down the Phone. You’re eating your meal, and what do you do? Check out your phone, most likely. You send messages, watch videos, or scroll through your feeds, all while eating. Quit your multi-tasking, and savor your food. Think about what you’re eating, and truly enjoy it. Eat slowly. If we are cognizant of the food we are putting into our bodies and truly enjoying it, we will slow down the process and not be distracted by electronic devices.

Do the Math. Remember when you thought you would never use algebra past high school? Well if “X” is the number of calories you consume each day and “Y” is the number of calories you expend each day, how many days must “Y” be greater than “X” for you to lose weight? It’s simple, really; you need to consistently burn more calories than you take in to lose weight. If you wear a Fitbit or other electronic device, you can see how many calories you burn each day. Subtract that number from your caloric intake; if the first number is too low, then get moving. Tracking your progress and your food intake can help you stay on pace, as well.

Lose Weight Before Summer

Find a Buddy. People are more likely to lose weight if they are held accountable by someone else like a personal trainer or nutrition coach. Say it is seven a.m. and you are planning to go for a jog. You are much more likely to hit snooze if left to your own devices; however, if you have someone waiting for you, you will be more likely to show up and complete the task. Enlist the help of a friend or even a personal trainer to help you stick to a schedule.

Add Some Spice. Studies have shown that consuming spicier foods helps you burn more calories than just eating plain foods. Capsaicin, a compound found in chili peppers, has been found to increase metabolism and help the body burn fat longer, up to 100 to 200 additional calories!

Spa Treatments. When all else fails, you can shell out big dollars to try and lose those last few stubborn pounds. There are several different methods you can try, including herbal wraps, Coolsculpting, which freezes fat cells or Vanquish, which uses heat to eliminate fat cells.  None of these is a miracle cure, but if you have tried everything else and have the funds to invest in a series of non-invasive, fat-melting procedures, you can see if they work for you.

And there you have it; ten ways you can work on your weight control. See you at the beach!

Rock That 2018 Resolution!

The Benefits of a Personal Trainer In Tucson Arizona:


Tucson GymYear after year you make the same resolution: to lose weight. You know you’ll look better and that it is beneficial to your health, but each year it turns out the same: you start off with a bang but you lose your resolve and wind up back in your old routine. How can you truly commit to your weight loss goal this year? A personal trainer just might be the answer for you in 2018!

Our Personal trainers here in Tucson are dedicated to helping you reach your fitness and health goals. It starts with a physical assessment to determine your abilities and to set you up for success. A workout routine is tailored just for you and your desired outcome. Want to get stronger? Lose 20 pounds? Increase your stamina? These are the goals you discuss with your trainer. And don’t be surprised if you have those days where you just don’t think you can do it, or that working out is such a chore. If you schedule an appointment with a personal trainer, you will be more likely to follow through. Being accountable to someone else is a huge part of your success; you feel more like working out when you know someone is counting on you! With the coaching, support, and direction you’ll receive from your personal trainer, you will be amazed at what you can achieve!

Another key element is your lifestyle. Are you a binge eater? Do you drink enough water? Do you prefer outside exercise like hiking, jogging or sports to traditional workouts? Do you procrastinate? Do you finish what you start? These factors will also play into your overall success, so be honest with your trainer about your lifestyle. He or she can take all of these items into consideration when putting together a workout regime that will challenge you but not defeat you, and help you successfully achieve your goals.

Tucson GymStarting small is a good step one. After meeting with one of our qualified personal trainers at our Tucson Gym, you will begin assessing your physical state and your desired outcome, it is smart to set small, attainable goals. If you want to lose or even gain weight, set your goal at five pounds and give yourself a deadline to make this goal. Talk frankly with your trainer and have him or she gives you viable tips to make these small goals. Once you see that you are capable of completing these little tasks, you’ll be amazed at how quickly they add up and soon, you will be your main goal!

In addition to helping you set goals and giving you tips on how to achieve them, a personal trainer is there to push you and motivate you. Staying on task and working a regularly scheduled routine will provide you with the best results. A personal trainer not only provides the proper way to complete exercises, use equipment, and measure success, but he or she is there to cheer you on and motivate you to be a better you. Knowing how to safely use your muscles and how each piece of equipment can help you tone and sculpt your body is one of the key factors a personal trainer can provide you. If you have ever attempted to work out without a trainer and failed, it may be because you were not fully trained on HOW to work out. Avoiding injury is another way the trainer can help you, by properly aligning you on a machine, or making sure the workout you are completing is not something that will harm you. If you have bad knees, running up a steep hill will not encourage you to keep working on your goals, and may, in fact, injure your knees further.

Improper technique cannot only result in injury but deter you further from reaching your goal. Having a trainer can ensure you don’t overwhelm yourself; many people attempt to push themselves too hard at first thinking that they will achieve results faster. Losing weight, building muscle and bettering your health is a marathon, not a sprint! It takes determination and dedication to actually achieve these goals, so don’t get discouraged if you don’t see results right away. Your personal trainer can give you an idea of the inches you’ve lost, the decrease in your body mass index (BMI) and over small indicators that you are on your way, even if you haven’t lost pounds or you feel you’re not making the strides you should be. Patience is a huge part of the overall process.

A huge part of the trainer’s job is making the workout fun and not boring. Tucson GymIf you use the same machines day after day or run the same hill every afternoon, you’re not varying your workout enough. A trainer can help to incorporate a variety of exercises into your regime to keep it fresh and to keep you involved. The trainer can also assist you with dietary selections. It’s great to work out, but if you eat candy bars and drink soda, the pounds are not going to come off, and you risk health consequences. Mapping out a healthy diet—one you can easily stick to with foods you enjoy—can also be a benefit to having a personal trainer.

Something else to consider: many people give up if they cheat on their diet or don’t work out when they are supposed to; don’t let this be your catalyst for failure. Cut yourself some slack and recognize that one pizza does not mean you can’t lose the weight or fit into that slinky dress; it just means you are human. Any personal trainer worth his weight in gold will understand a slip-up and guide you back on course. The satisfaction of seeing you succeed is what the trainers strive for; it’s how they measure their effectiveness. It will take a team to get you where you want to be.

Tucson Gym

Remember that working out has long-term benefits in addition to whittling down your waistline. Regular exercise lessens the likelihood that you will suffer from heart disease, diabetes, and other long-term health issues. So this New Years, when you make that resolution to lose weight, consider the benefits to having a personal trainer in Tucson guide you to a healthier, happier you in 2018!
