This will be a 12 week programme, were each week you will have some new information to digest and some set action to take as a result.
The programme will do it's very best be results driven and fit into the lifestyle of a busy professional.
I hope you will see this programme as a chance to not only be successful at what you do career wise but as someone who is ultra busy have all the benefits of being in shape, improving health and increased vitality, which in the work place will increase your productivity even more, you will feel better in general and have more energy when you finally make it home to see your family, so others will also surely benefit too!
The programme will explain the what and why with simplicity, yet will be convenient and allow you to adapt it to your busy lifestyle.
Your Eating habits may not yet be a priority and I'm sure most of the time you are having to grab things on the go.
This means during a busy day at work, a lot of the time, it will be making choices that fit with the plan and will generate results, yet convenience is of paramount importance.Therefore the information and tasks are presented and aimed at someone "on the go".I get that your time to prepare food is very limited and when it is a necessity it will need to be both quick and easy.
Plus your day is probably spend full of temptations too, those that you work with may not share the same healthy lifestyle objectives you do!
Eateries you go to lunch to, or food available that is available at your place of work to buy or at a busy meeting may not always be the best option.
In modern day life, jobs can be very much on the sedentary side, leaving you somewhat stiff and lacking in energy if you are sat for long periods, but knowing you need to do some form of exercise to get results.
Being able to do an exercise session that feels and is effective is key, but doesn't drain you of all your energy reserves, yet seems to pick you up a bit and gives you the energy and productivity and increases mobility afterwards.
But remember the programme only works if you apply the information and put it all to good use, bit by bit, although it's a 12 week programme, the idea is to turn it into a sustainable healthy lifestyle, that helps you get all the great benefits of weight loss and increased energy.
I have specially designed follow along Weight Loss workouts for you to follow to complement the 12 week programme.
The workouts are designed with busy working professionals in mind, the work-outs require minimal equipment, an exercise mat or soft surface for lying or exer-cising on. They are designed to be used anywhere, in a room in your home, in the garden, a hotel room on business, wherever there is a little bit of space.
They are designed to have a big effect in a short space of time taking only about 30 minutes to complete, including warming up and stretching!
If you are already an avid exerciser and your current routine involves both strength training and interval cardio, then use my workouts to complement what you are already doing, for instance when you just can't make it to the venue you currently exercise at, use one of mine instead!
The work outs are designed with weight loss as their main objective, but the ex-ercise selection is very much based on someone that has to sit for big parts of their day and the posture problems such as tight lower backs that can occur as a result.
As well as having a big metabolic effect, the exercises are designed to stabilise joints, especially the hips and the back.
The workouts are designed to be used by anybody regardless of fitness ability, regular exercisers with a good level of fitness could always hold Dumbbells or Kettle-bells in each hand to make it harder.
The exercise sessions should be performed 2-5 times per week, just aim for the amount of times you can do each week realistically and habitually.
To find out more about the specific benefits of Strength Training and Interval Training, it will covered in Week 11 of the course.
As always if you are starting out or if in any doubt regarding exercise routines, or if you have any injuries or illnesses, consult a medical professional before embarking on an exercise routine.
Fat loss really is the thing to focus on, the best way especially if how you look is important is to take a "before" photo right at the beginning and every few weeks repeat the process.
Or take body measurements, such as the circumference of your waist, just be sure to measure the exact same place!
A good indicator to fat loss is to be aware of how clothes fit, if you have clothes you wish to fit back into, as soon as you feel it's closer, keep trying them on until they are comfortable.
The goal should also be a realistic one, bear in mind healthy fat loss is achievable at a steady 1-2 pounds per week, which will also help in giving your goal a time frame, it could be for an important event, for a holiday or seasonal, say for a Christmas Party.
Setting a timeframe gives the goal more of a sense of urgency.
Next it's about working out what action needs to be taken, what action you can take from now, what do you already know you need to do?
What processed or "junk food" and other foods and drinks that you know don't fit on the plan can you cut out or severely cut down on?
This will help decrease your calorie intake and when the amount of calories you expend per day is slightly more than you ingest you start losing weight!
Later will delve deeper into eating habits, for now focus on the obvious; take-aways, pastries, deep fried foods, confectioneries, alcohol, cakes, chocolate, crisps (potato chips).
