exercise coach completes weight loss programSo many people start with great intentions, but set unrealistic targets – like going to the gym.  Unless you’re a professional, this takes huge commitment.

However, a small amount of exercise is incredibly important to managing your health and weight.  I’ll guide you through easy, sustainable programs – which match your time and motivation.

Realistic Exercise Coach for Gentle Weight Loss

We probably all know the simple truth – your body uses calories.  If you eat more calories than your body needs, we put on weight.  If we eat less calories than the body needs,we lose weight.  That’s the simple truth of every diet program or weight loss plan.  So, if you want to lose weight, there’s two options – eat less calories, or get your body to burn more.

At SlimmerStyle we want you to do both, but only at a sensible and realistic level.  We don’t believe in crash diets, and we don’t believe in sending you to the gym or asking you to run a marathon.  We like to suggest weight loss plans which combine small changes in both nutrition and exercise, because then we’ve got a rounded program to help your overall health.

What Sort of Exercise Coach?

Let’s get one thing clear – we don’t cater for sports coaching.  If you want to do a triathlon or become an Iron Man – we’ll refer you to someone else.  Unless that’s just a long term goal and you need a little help to get going.

The sort of exercise we recommend is often very gentle – it can range from just coaching you to use the stairs, to park further from the office, or to walk the dog a little further than you might have done before.  We can certainly coach you to start jogging, and as an exercise coach, we’ll encourage you all the way.

Exercise Targets

Just one word of advice from our exercise coach.  Setting targets is very important part of your weight loss program.  However, targets have to be realistic.  There is no point setting a target which leaves you broken and disheartened.  Set yourself easy targets to begin with, and build up.  Remember the SMART acronym – targets should be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely.  Don’t overdo it!
