Weight Loss Plan on Target

A great start for our latest client, Mr.R, who started on January 9th.
Mr R. has launched into 2013 with a health transformation plan with the help of Paul from PWR Personal Training. One or two health issues had crept in for the company director and busy family man from Ingol, Preston, due to unhealthy habits.
Mr.R. has already reported his clothes are now loose, and he has made significant progress in

  • Stamina - cardio machines at his new gym
  • Strength - through circuit style workouts
  • Diet control - gained control and reduced cravings
  • Weight (fat) loss - already lost 9lb in 3 weeks
Mr.R. is looking forward to further progress through the Winter and into the Spring of 2013.

Excellent articles on Weight Issues

I found some excellent articles on all sorts of health topics at this page.
For example there are literally dozens of articles on the subject of Weight Issues, such as Jayson Hunter's

15 Rules for Fat Loss

1. Eat 4-6 small meals day a day instead of the usual 2-3 large meals. Eating frequently will help regulate and boost your metabolism to burn more calories. 
 2. Consume whole foods that are high in fiber and low in sugar such as lean protein (lean beef, chicken, fish, and whey protein), fruits & vegetables (oranges, apples, strawberries, blueberries, broccoli, peppers, asparagus, carrots, nuts (almonds, cashews, & walnuts), and whole grains. more
To guarantee results, however, you should do the sensible thing and hire a PWR Personal Trainer to see you through the process and get you into amazing shape. Check out our January New Year Bounce Back Personal Training deal for only £149 -  here

(type 2) Diabetes is self inflicted, suggests Carol Ann Bentley

I found an interesting article while researching type 2 diabetes, after a client signed up to try to deal with the effects.

(type 2) Diabetes Epidemic through self-inflicted Obesity  says Carol Ann Bentley.
"One of the greatest contributors to the type 2 diabetes epidemic is reckoned to be obesity brought on by our modern lifestyles. Are you eating yourself into diabetes? Check if you have these 4 eating habits that could contribute to obesity and possibly make you part of the type 2 diabetes epidemic..."  read more
"In a recent medical study in the US the results indicated that having just one sugar sweetened drink of fruit juice every day made women more susceptible to becoming part of the type 2 diabetes epidemic, by up to 80%."

High blood sugar and the deadly cost

How Does Diabetes Affect The Body?
  • Diabetes and coronary heart disease are closely related.
  • Similar to how diabetes affects the heart, high blood pressure and cholesterol raises the risk of strokes.
  • Retinopathy is caused by blood vessels in the back of the eye (the retina) swelling and leaking. High blood pressure is also a contributing factor for diabetic retinopathy. Read more

What is Hyperglycemia?

Hyperglycemia, the term for expressing high blood sugar, has been defined by the World Health Organisation as:
  • Blood glucose levels greater than 7.0 mmol/L 
  • (126 mg/dl) when fasting
  • Blood glucose levels greater 11.0 mmol/L 
  • (200 mg/dl) 2 hours after meals
Although blood sugar levels exceeding 7 mmol/L for extended periods of time can start to cause damage to internal organs, symptoms may not develop until blood glucose levels exceed 11 mmol/L. ... read more
How serious is type 2 diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes is a serious health condition. Type 2 diabetes can potentially be avoided through diet and exercise. Such a diagnosis can be viewed as a useful, if urgent, wake up call.

If resistance to insulin increases, people with type 2 diabetes may need to take oral anti-diabetic medications, or take insulin to keep their blood sugar levels stable... read more

We see the potential in you

Paul's client, Sarah (Paris Marathon)
Here at PWR Personal Training, all our clients are interesting and unique people. Young and old, boy and girl. Each client a unique person with unique needs and back stories. But all of them have, at one point, taken the initiative. Each of them has taken it upon themselves to make a positive change, and asked us for our help.
It is unique people that make our job interesting and challenging. Finding solutions for individuals with unique personalities, values, fears, strengths, ambitions, insecurities and unique levels of self-confidence and self esteem.
That's why the first stage of your training programme with your trainer is, simply, but most importantly, a conversation! We don't start "the torture" until we've talked through it. Besides, any trainer who "kicks your ass" in the first workout (unless you've asked for it) is not doing you any good. At PWR we start with movements that are appropriate to you.
And, we don't try to find a solution until we understand enough about you. The start-up conversation is your - and our - chance to understand where you have come from, where you want to go, and how long you have to do it (usually by tomorrow morning, please!). By the end of it you and we will know if we are suitable for each other. After all, we're going to spend some time together.
It is our job to identify your fears, blocks and barriers - often emotional, sometimes physical, usually both!
Ste (with new biceps) and Paul
The thing that I see in a potential client is just that. The potential, future you. The moment I first speak to a client with a specific target or goal, I instantly see that goal being scored. Working back from that future success, I see the stages the person needs to go through, and work back through each stage.
Whether its getting rid of negative vibes and fear, or waking up floppy muscles, or rehydrating the body, the first step begins from the conversation. Its the start of a professional and a platonic relationship, so it has to be right from the start.
We offer a free mini consultation to anyone who enquires...You have nothing lose. Give us a call...
