Why fitness matters?

Many Mississauga and Oakville residents are suffering health consequences from being overweight, from smoking, or simply from leading a sedentary lifestyle. If you know that your health could be improved, you may be wondering where to start. Losing weight and/or improving your fitness level can seem like a daunting prospect. Some of you may have tried joining a gym or working out at home without experiencing much success in meeting your goals. Fortunately, Mississauga residents have access to a service that professional athletes have known about for decades – the personal trainer. Personal trainers offer you an exercise plan designed just for you, along with nutritional counseling, and personal support and encouragement. Personal trainers can help you to get the results you want, safely. And you will have fun along the way!

Fitness Matters

Ontario doctors are concerned about our citizens. It’s estimated that 60 – 70% of adult Ontarians are overweight or obese. As well, the prevalence of fast food and sedentary lifestyles are taking a toll on adults and children alike. Many people are in danger of developing conditions such as heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and osteoporosis as they approach middle age. The good news is that if you fall into this category, it’s never too late to maximize your fitness level.

The most efficient way to do this is to seek out a good personal trainer who serves the Mississauga area. A personal trainer will get you started on the right path, and encourage you to challenge yourself if your enthusiasm wanes. A personal trainer will keep you focused on your goals, and remind you about why they matter. Your reasons for getting fit might include:
• Improving your health
• Improving your flexibility or range of motion
• Setting an example for your children
• Improving your posture
• To look better and have clothes fit better
• To get more energy
• To avoid getting ill in the future
• To sleep better
• To be able to play a particular sport better
• Improving your mental state
• To prevent premature aging

Why a Personal Trainer?

If you already belong to a gym or take classes, you may wonder what additional benefits a personal trainer might be able to offer you. A personal trainer may be essential to your health – for example, if you have suffered a major health crisis and need exercise as a way to build your way back to strength, a personal trainer is definitely the best route to take. Personal trainers are highly knowledgeable about physiology and medical matters and can work with your medical professionals to create a program that will strengthen you without placing undue stress on your body.

A personal trainer will adapt your program as you progress, making sure that you are never bored, never overwhelmed, and always challenged. He or she will provide outside motivation and accountability for you and will support you by helping you to plan healthy menus and to maintain healthy habits.
