It’s true, if you burn more calories than what you take in, weight loss will happen. So how do we increase our calorie expenditure? Exercise! But most of us are only hitting the cardio and, unfortunately, this won’t be enough to reach your weight loss goals.
An integral — yet very misunderstood — component to the exercise element is strength training. When performed properly and with the right amount of effort and time, it can have many wonderful effects on the human body!
But wait, there’s more!
The most important piece of information I can give you is this: To create an effective weight loss program one must use an integrated approach combining proper nutrition, behavior changing strategies AND exercise. Trying to achieve results with only one ingredient will cause frustration and defeat.
The fitness experts at Edward-Elmhurst Health & Fitness can help you defend yourself against frustrating and defeating weight loss programs by creating one that is effective, supportive, energizing and long lasting!
