Cardio Exercise And Weight Training For Your Weight Loss Program

by Jackie on November 1, 2016

An important part of losing weight is adding exercise to your daily activities. While there are a number of different exercise programs, the type of exercise you choose can make a big difference in the results you will achieve. Of course, any type of physical activity is going to help you burn calories and lose weight; however, medical professionals recommend adding cardio to your workout routine.

Another important consideration when choosing your exercise options should include weight training. Most people aren’t interested in building bulky muscles, but toning and strengthening can be an important part of weight training.

While a cardiovascular workout will get your heart pumping, weight training provides an entirely different type of physical benefit. Those toned, sculpted muscles are certainly a great goal; however, using weights can also help increase bone density and fight debilitating problems, such as osteoporosis. Incorporate stretching, weight training and an activity that will strengthen your heart to help burn calories as well as enjoy a stronger, healthier body.

I'm a fitness nut. I know what you're thinking, one of these people who has never been fat a day in her life, and can eat whatever she wants. The truth is I struggled with my weight growing up and lived in a household where everything seemed to be fried. Once I got away from home I realized I had the choice to eat and exercise how I wanted. I've gained a lot of insight into working as a personal trainer, and feel I can relate to others that were in my situation. I think if I can do it then you can to, and if you want to start kicking butt then hop on board and lets get started.
