So you’ve signed up to use our mobile personal trainer. You’re probably seeing some results, but you might be wondering: how can I maximize my workouts and membership? Here are some tips and tricks to do just that!
Work on your mobility. Being able to properly move through the entire range-of-motion of an exercise is super important! It not only increases your strength through the whole range, but it also helps to decrease your risk of injury. If you only train a small range-of-motion, you will only be strong in that range. If you’re ever in a situation where your body is challenged in the weaker range-of-motion, you may be more susceptible to injury. Not sure where to start on this? Talk to your personal trainer or speak with one of our chiropractors! We can help.
Eat nutritious food. Making sure to get a wide variety of nutrients is key. You need a balanced combination of protein, carbohydrates, and fats, but you also need a wide variety of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) to properly support your body and its function. Your personal trainer and other providers can also help you with this!
Mindset is key! Your mindset about your training program can make or break your success. But what do we mean when we say “mindset”? We mean staying positive. We mean accepting that your progress might not be linear. We mean celebrating wins beyond what the scale says. We mean that you need to commit to consistency, not weight loss. It can mean a lot of things. Having a discussion with your personal trainer about your mindset is a great starting point. They can probably point out some areas you could improve on.
