Fitness Tips from Personal Trainer Joe Butler
The big day is almost here and you need to get in shape. Everyone has their own vision of how they are going to look on their wedding day. Most women do not settle for anything except looking their absolute best. Here are some tips to help you look and feel fantastic on your special day.
Whether you want lose those pesky 5lbs or drop some significant weight before the wedding you need to begin with a plan. First and foremost you need to start writing down your food. Get a food journal and write down what you eat, at what time and how many calories you take in at that meal.. do not starve yourself, you will only look tired and have no energy when you walk down the aisle. Eat 5-6 small meals per day. These are not huge meals- for example, breakfast, snack, lunch , snack, dinner. You will keep your body fueled and in turn be eating less all day rather than 1 or 2 crazy meals.
Exercise!! A good exercise program has 2 parts, resistance training and cardiovascular training. Many women only do cardio because "they don't want to get big". As if were that easy! Resistance training will keep your muscles tone, tight and give you that shape that will turn heads. Along with a cardio program (walk, run, bike....) resistance training will round out your exercise program and help you reach your optimal weight in the shortest amount of time.
I hope these tips help. Let us know if you need additional support. Good luck!!
