The Right Health Club will Help You Reach Your Fitness Goals

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 23, 2018

FieldHouse, Sudbury, MAIf you want to lose weight or begin an exercise regimen, you may realize that you can’t do it alone. You have good intentions and shoveling and yard work was a great workout. But now you may be realizing that you need help.

If you are looking to join a gym, be sure to find one that will meet your needs and help you reach your fitness goals. Not all fitness centers are alike. In fact, at the FieldHouse we are confident that you will find us to be different from other fitness centers. Here's why.

At the FieldHouse you will never feel hassled or pressured to join. We work as your fitness consultants; we listen and suggest the best path for your personal success.

If you are an experienced exerciser who has been able to attain lasting results on your own, try us out to see that we are a good fit. If, after trying out our gym, you decide to join, we will provide you with as much guidance and support necessary to be successful in reaching your fitness goals.

If you are like most people, you probably lack the knowledge, motivation and accountability necessary to achieve your fitness goals on your own. In fact, you may not even know what your fitness goals are. In your mind you may want to “start exercising,” or “lose weight.” In this case, we will help you create specific and attainable goals. Through conversation we will determine whether you are more comfortable working in one on one personal training or in a group exercise environment. Depending on your needs, goals, and lifestyle we can recommend that you choose personal training or we may recommend other fitness activities.

We guarantee that if you commit you will attain the life changing results that are so important to you.

For a no-pressure conversation with a health club that can help you determine your fitness goals and the best path to achieving them, contact the FieldHouse in Sudbury.

Keep Your Weight Loss Program On-Track

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, March 06, 2018

FieldHouse, Sudbury, MAOften we try to get in shape in the summer, and then we tend to get lax about our diet and exercise as fall and the cooler weather move in, then we want to get in shape for summer again. This is a frustrating roller-coaster. If your weight loss program was working and has now tapered off, this is normal. No matter how faithful you are, from time to time you'll fall off the wagon.

Here are some strategies for you to try.

1. Visualize

Have a vision of success. The mind is a strong tool -- use it to achieve what you want.

While you're imagining, remind yourself of reality: excess weight and yo-yo dieting is unhealthy. Make sure this is a lifetime commitment not a temporary plan to drop 10 pounds.

To stay with your weight loss program, only keep healthy foods in the house.

2. Understand Your Weight Loss Personality

Personality plays a role in our attitude towards food. You should know your tendencies and tailor your weight loss plan to conquer your unproductive inclinations.

3. Write Down Everything You Eat or Drink

A common mistake is underestimating how much food you've eaten. This can lead to a weight loss plateau or weight gain. Keep a diary of your daily food intake (every bite, taste, or lick) can help you see where you're going wrong.

4. Beware of 'Calorie Creep'

A key reason for a gaining weight is eating more than you think. It's easy for portion sizes to increase. It is important to weigh and measure your food to understand proper portions. Try cutting your daily calorie intake by 100 or 200 to move beyond the weight loss plateau.

5. Watch Restaurant Overeating

At restaurants, rich foods and supersized portions can sway even the most determined dieter. Especially if you eat out often, look at restaurant eating as a chance to practice good portion control.

6. Eat Protein to Manage Hunger

A high protein diet can help squelch hunger. Protein foods work by suppressing a hormone secreted by the stomach that stimulates appetite. Foods high in fat actually raised levels of that hormone and increased hunger. Carbohydrates make people hungrier than they were before they had eaten.

7. Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

Fill up on produce. Eating lots of low-calorie, high-volume fruits and vegetables crowds out other foods that are higher in fat and calories. The U.S. government's dietary guidelines suggest that we get 7-13 cups of produce daily.

8. Push your Exercise Routine

Using the treadmill every day for 30-minutes or walking the neighborhood with friends is good, but your body gets used to it too. After a while, your muscles get used to the routine and become very efficient at doing the task at hand.

To keep your muscles guessing and burning calories, vary your physical activity and exercise routine.

Also make sure your routine includes strength-training exercises which help counteract muscle loss due to aging. Building and preserving muscle mass is a key factor in reaching a healthy weight, as muscle requires more calories to maintain than fat.

10. Try Yoga to Avoid Stress Eating

Stress eating is bingeing on food to soothe your inner emotional turmoil. You are not really hungry. Yoga lowers levels of stress hormones.
