We don’t let our community members slack, which is why people who join our gym see actual, long term results.

One way personal training often falls flat is by not incorporating nutrition planning. Fitness and nutrition go hand-in-hand. No amount of time at the gym can make up for a slew of poor lifestyle choices outside of the gym. Check out these top reasons why we believe personal training should include nutrition planning as well.

Giving You The Energy You Need

The first reason why it is crucial to include nutrition planning as a part of your personal training is because of the energy you need for your time at the studio. When you work with one of our personal trainers, you will be challenged with fitness classes and workouts that require large amounts of energy. We will help you work past fitness walls you always believed to exist. Our workouts aren’t easy, but they are designed to produce actual results. Our fitness community will be there to hearten you when you feel yourself lagging. However, one of the most important components of keeping you energized will be found in the foods you eat.

When you sign up for personal training, be prepared to take a good hard look at the foods you are consuming. Keep an open mind and, remember, your personal trainer can only help you reach your goals if you are willing to listen to their advice. A poor diet will leave you feeling drained at the gym, which will in turn cause you to miss out on important workouts. A major focus of our nutrition planning is ensuring you are eating the right foods to provide you with the necessary energy based on your fitness and workout plan.

Avoiding The “I Earned This” Mentality

It is immensely common for people who start working out to develop the “I earned this” mentality. While it can be helpful to set yourself goals with rewards for reaching those goals, be careful you don’t fall down the slippery slope of believing you can reward every workout with any food you want. Nutrition planning helps you reward yourself without falling prey to overindulgence. Too often, people become frustrated when they don’t see any signs of weight loss even though they are working out frequently. These same people get done with a workout that burned 300 calories and swing by their favorite fast food joint to reward themselves with a 900 calorie milkshake. This idea of rewarding yourself with indulgent foods because you “earned it” can hold you back from achieving lasting fitness results.

It is much wiser to build a nutrition plan, with some room for comfort foods, and to use rewards other than food to motivate yourself. Instead of indulging in a milkshake, why not buy yourself that new gadget you’ve been eyeing when you hit a major fitness milestone. If rewards motivate you, use them, but use them wisely so you don’t derail your progress.

Ditching Bad Habits To Drive Long Term Results

Another problem with not including nutrition in your personal fitness plan is that you won’t create the lifestyle change you need to drive long term results. If your goal is to not just temporarily become fit, you have to address and change bad habits. Nutrition planning will help you pinpoint bad habits that prevent you from being a healthy, energetic person. At B.O.S.S. Fitness, we hope you’ll be with our fitness community for a long time to come, but we also want to prepare you to continue on a journey of healthiness even past your time with us. By creating a better nutrition plan, you’ll be prepared to continue on a healthy path for the rest of your life. Be ready to tackle a variety of bad habits such as the following:

  • Consuming too much alcohol
  • Succumbing to unhealthy late night snacks
  • Including too many sugary treats in your daily intake
  • Relying on fast food for your meals
  • Being unaware of the calories you consume
