HOW TO BOOST YOUR METABOLISM AFTER 40!

How to Boost Your Metabolism after 40

One of the main purposes of metabolism is to store and use energy. After 40 years on the planet, who could not derive benefits from storing and using energy more? As we enter the years after our 40th birthday, it stands to reason that our metabolism will slow down. We are not as active as we used to be and we may not be taking in the proper amount of nutrients.

40-12

When we were younger, we had our mothers to reinforce that we ate all of our broccoli or no dessert. After 40, we have no one to regulate us but ourselves. That is why we need to do all we can to ensure that we boost our metabolism after 40.

Be Picky and Proud of It

At this point, you need to be as discerning as possible as to what you allow to enter your digestive system. Picking and choosing the foods that you eat will determine how quickly or slowly your metabolism will work. Keep away from the carbs. Yes, that is correct, keep your carbohydrate intake to a minimum. And when you do have carbs, have the right ones. The right combination of fruits and vegetables that contain carbohydrates will make or break your metabolism.

Add – Do Not Just Subtract

It is important to take away white flour, sugar, too many carbohydrates and sweets from your diet. Moreover, while you are deleting negative sources from your diet that will slow down your metabolism, you need to consider adding other things to your diet. Things such as green tea, extra water, or even apple cider vinegar can play a role in increasing your metabolism. Do not be afraid to try a new fruit or vegetable. If you are reaching for chips and dip, think about red pepper strips and hummus. You never know what will work for you unless you try adding it into your diet.

Exercise

If your normal form of exercise is Yoga, try a power form of Yoga like Yogalates. If you take a leisurely stroll, consider taking a different path such as a more hilly road or even begin to power walk in between your causal walking. Begin to incorporate weights into your exercise routine. The extra pressure on your muscles will increase your metabolism as those muscles now have to work a little harder. In addition, you may want to take a dance class that has a bit more rhythm to it or take a beginners aerobics class to get that metabolism jump-started.

By changing your dietary habits and deleting some negative items, as well as adding some beneficial food sources and incorporating different types of exercise routines, you will see the beginnings of a whole new you and a whole new metabolism.

Secrets to Enjoying Exercise

The Secrets to Enjoying Exercise

If you are like most folks, the mere thought of exercising is enough to have your mind make up all sorts of excuses why you should not, could not, and potentially will not exercise. However, there are some secrets and tips to really begin to enjoy exercise to its fullest.

Grab a Buddy

Often times we can view exercise regimens as solitary confinement – like a sentence we have to endure all on our own. Guaranteed you have a pal or co-worker who feels exactly the same way. The old adage that misery loves company would apply in this situation. However, once you get together with a friend to exercise and actually go to the gym or take that power walk or a Zumba class, you will begin to see how much fun it really is and begin to enjoy exercising.

Change your View of Exercising

Only you have the ability to change how you perceive something. Only when you have associated positive thoughts and feelings with exercise will you begin to override the negative connotations with exercising. You will find that excuses such as being tired or not having enough time will be outweighed by feelings of accomplishment such as recognition that you burned 500 calories that night or even the simple fact that you feel energized and were glad you went.

Focus on the positive results and feelings you get the first time you go to exercise and bring that feeling back up to the forefront of your mind the next time you are heading out to exercise.

Be Creative

Be creative with your exercise routines and regimens. You do not have to think about gigantic machinery that you are unfamiliar with or a gym full of strangers. Find something you love to do and incorporate that into exercise. For some, that is walking briskly and for others it is dancing your heart out. Dance is not only a creative outlet, it is also one that will burn hundreds of calories. Even if you are not a professional dancer, taking a swing class or a jazz class is only the beginning to discovering one of the secrets to enjoying exercise.

Make a Date with Exercising

If you leave exercising to a chance date or time, you will more than likely set yourself up for failure. Make a specific date and time for exercise, whether you go out to the gym or do it at home. Write in on your calendar, put it on your to do list and commit to it. After you are done, you will be glad you did.

Great Question!

“HOW QUICKLY SHOULD I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?”

Feeling Impatient? This is a more common question often asked by new clients. Seeing results can take time, so it’s a good question to ask me, your trainer. “Many people come into the trainer-client relationship with several misconceptions of the effort and time required to reach their desired outcome. Most people think magic happens only in the gym. Quite the contrary. Change happens when you’re in fact not in the gym.

questionIssues that determine your body’s response can include: How far away are you from your goal? Are you currently training? How are your eating habits? How much weight do you want to lose? Are there stability, rehabilitative or other issues that need to be addressed with training before you can transition into the next training phase? Only after answering these questions and more can I as your trainer set realistic time goals for you.

Will You Quit This New Year 2015?

Another year has passed us by. Although many of us have new plans for 2015 such as losing weight, staying fit and getting stronger this can definitely be a task at hand and is always easier said than done!

As an impatient society of instant gratification we must understand that proper planning and accountability will always impact our results in reaching our own personal health and fitness goal(s). The old cliche of “proper diet and exercise” still remains and will always remain just as the law of gravity and science of anatomy always will. 80% nutrition and 20% exercise is key. This of course does not necessarily mean that sticking to salads, yogurt and egg whites is all you’ll ever need and will be limited to.  Not all diets, training regimens and exercises will work for everybody so it’s crucial you learn how to eat, when to eat and what to eat as well as train. You must learn how to “read” your own body.

While decreasing motivation through out a new year can be a factor improper eating and exercise habits will play a huge roll in whether you will attain success or not. We here at Kinetix will guide you, motivate you and manage your progress as well as share our knowledge and expertise 24/7.  Although there are never any quick fixes to losing weight, gaining muscle or just plain living healthier Kinetix Personal Training will certainly keep you focused and will guide you in the right direction every step of the way.

Give us a call. Make your first step your last step in the wrong direction. 915.731.4563

Personal Training Perspective – El Paso, TX.

Personal Training Perspective – El Paso, TX.

As a personal trainer it’s not always just about correcting your form on exercises, encouraging you to do that one extra rep or monitor your eating habits. Even though it actually is, on a larger scale it’s about applying those same encouraging and challenging exercises and painful repetitions to every day life’s challenges. I want to see you get that promotion, I want to see you get that second date, expect a raise, get back into that size 5! I train to push limits. I train to encourage a better & more rewarding lifestyle. I train to change lives. As the old military saying goes, “The more you sweat in practice, the less you bleed in battle.”

That is all. Carry on.
