AERIAL FITNESS ADDED TO THE PROGRAM!
In addition to traditional weight training, resistance band training, core strength training, Pilates, boxing, cardio and Yoga, fitness trainer Peter Feysa has added Aerial strength training to the program. If you've seen Cirque du Soleil or gymnastics, then you have an idea of how this modality of fitness training works. There is a "silk", or fabric type rope, that hangs from the ceiling here at Excellence Fitness in Seattle, Washington. As you climb and perform specific artistic dance type movements in the air, you condition your body in a very specific way, penetrating the sculpting and shaping properties of your muscles like no other. It also elongates, stretches, and tones your muscles at the same time. The result? A solid, toned midsection with a tone and scultped body. You express yourself artistically through your fitness. A great combination.
PICKING A PERSONAL TRAINER
Picking a personal trainer is a big decision, and even though I feel whole-heartedly in my fitness program, I want you to have all the tools you need in order to make the selection that is right for you. With countless trainers in Seattle to choose from, and with over 400 personal training certification programs available, it’s easy to see why finding a good fitness pro can be difficult.
So what should you look for in a personal trainer? What separates one fitness trainer from another? Where in Seattle can you find a personal trainer who is best qualified to accommodate your personal fitness goals?
The first thing to do is to do your homework, ask around, look at various personal training web sites, visit fitness clubs throughout Seattle, and/or the greater Seattle area. Remember, you’re going to invest not only your money, but your life to this training program, so your personal trainer should fit all your fitness needs.
Do any of your friends or work mates have personal trainers? If so, how was their experience? Essentially, gather names, contact info with personal trainers who are in your area.
After you have done some research, look for accreditation to see if their personal training certification is legitimate. Now, accreditation doesn’t necessarily mean that one certification program produces better personal trainers than another. But it’s a good sign that a company’s personal training certification is sound. This is extremely important because I’ve personally known trainers receiving their certifications from online courses they took in a single day! Good certifications typically come from the American College of Sports Medicine, the National Academy of Sports Medicine (my alma mater), the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and the American Council on Exercise.
Be sure to ask about experience, particularly experience with people like you. If you’re interested in decreasing your body fat and increasing lean body mass, go to someone who’s specialization is in fat loss or muscle gain, etc.
Also, ask how well the trainer keeps up with developments in health and fitness through continuing education. Ask them if they have a college-level experience in exercise physiology or a related field.
Now that you’ve done some research and have narrowed down a few personal trainers, set up interviews. Yes, interviews! This is your body and your fitness and YOU get to decide who’s best suited for you. Ask them specific questions about their training techniques, their methods of exercise prescription, how they plan to help you with YOUR fitness goals. Remember, you’re going to be spending hours with this individual so be confident in your selection.
If you have any questions at all about fitness, or more about selecting a personal trainer, please call. I will be more than happy to answer any and all of your questions.
Quick B-Fit Fat-Loss Tips!
Here are some Fit-Tips from your very own personal trainer, Peter Feysa.
Step One: Lower Your Caloric Intake
The rule of thumb for body-fat reduction is to lower your calories by about 500 calories per day. This can be accomplished easily by simply subtracting 20 percent of your total volume of food from each meal. Or to simply increase the volume of meals you have and decrease your portion size. In Seattle, this is easy to do. There are many food options available for you to reduce your fat within the city itself.
Step Two: Resistance Training
That's right, lifting weights helps you to increase your metabolism which will help you lower your body-fat. You see, your muscle is your metabolism. And by training your muscles, you increase your metabolism, or simply put, burn more calories per day. Most personal trainers agree that by adding two to three weight training days to your current workout program will help you shed your unwanted love handles and sculpt and shape your body to your desired fitness goals. Helping you acheive your lean and fit body.
Step Three: Cardio
Now, you don't have to be a personal trainer to figure out that the more calories you burn, the more fat you'll lose. Seattle has plenty of options for outdoor running. And...Seattle is one of the biggest bike friendly cities in the country! In addtion to these wonderful training options, many Seattle gyms have tons of cardio equipment, as well as cardio fitness classes. So...what are you waiting for?
Step Four: Flexibility
That's right! By stretching, doing yoga and Pilates, you'll tone your body to your desired shape. People that stretch have typically 20 percent less body-fat than those who don't. Your muscles simply respond better to repair and recovery, therefore, more body-fat loss, when you stretch. So...incorporate a good flexibility routine to your current personal training fitness program. Seattle has TONS of yoga centers, and great fitness support groups.
Step Five: Hire Peter Feysa as your personal trainer! (Optional)
Just kidding! But seriously, people who train with certified personal trainers are 40 percent more likely to reduce body-fat than those who begin their personalized fitness training program on there own.
Quick B-Fit Muscle-Gain Tips!
This is your very own personal trainer's guide to increasing muscle mass!
Step One: Resistance Training
Unlike resistance training for body-fat reduction, resistance training for muscle gain is all about intensity. You have the ability to sculpt and tone your body to your desired shape with the correct amount of weight and proper amount volume and intensity.
The number of workouts per week depends on your skill level, but basically goes something like this:
-Weight Training Volume:
Seattle Personal Training advice for beginners!
Train all muscle groups in one session three times per week. This includes exercises for chest, back, shoulders, triceps, biceps, legs, hamstrings and glutes. Two to three sets per exercise for a total of 15-20 sets. Training reps between 15-20 reps per exercise. You must allow proper recovery time for each workout, which is typically 48 hours of rest before you train again. Asking advice and developing a fitness program from a certified personal triainer is strongly advized. If you're in Seattle and you would like personal training, contact Peter Feysa through B-Fit Personal Training at firstname.lastname@example.org
Seattle Personal Trainer advice for intermediate and advanced athletes!
Use a weight training split for your muscles 5 times per week. Each day train your muscles individually. I.e., chest and triceps on Mondays, back and biceps on Tuesdays, legs on Wednsday, shoulders and traps on Thursday, and abs on Friday. The training volume here increases from 20-25 sets per workout. Training reps between 6-12 reps.
Step Two: EAT!
Yes, eat all the good caloriess you can get your hands on. Increasing your caloric intake at least 500 calories per day is minimum. Your training calories should be 30 percent protein, 30 percent fat, and 40 percent carbs for 6 meals per day. Supplementation is key if your training intensity is through the roof. Get an extra 50 grams/day whey protein at the end of every training workout. This is essential for muscle recovery and repair.
Step Three: Rest
This is mandatory. Your personal training advice of the day is to rest! Yes, rest. This is the bodybuilder's secret weapon when training heavy. Gains happen when you're resting, not when you're lifting. So, after coming from the gym, take a little nap, and get minimum 8 hours rest per night. Watch your training gains soar.
Step Four: Cardio
Don't overdue the cardio here. Perform an intense cardio session two times per week max. This is simply to see the beautiful shape you've created with your resistance training. A good sweaty cardio training session has the ability to shed the excess salt and sugar from your body. This takes away the puffyness that you may experience with your food. Run outside as your training regimine. If you live in Seattle or anywhere within 100 miles of the Seattle area, rain may get in the way! Seattle has many fitness gyms in the area so find a membership and train indoors. This will create a personal experience with your program; meeting other cardio training fans will increase your ability to train hard consistently.
