It’s a Hybrid Weight Loss & Fitness Boot Camp – a safe place where you can reach your weight loss goals with all the support you need!
Firstly, it is important to plan your week, start with what exercise you will be doing at what times.
Getting organised is the key to success, plan your meals for the week and also if there are any social events that could undermine your progress!
At Hybrid Bootcamp we always focus on high intensity exercise in the mornings, as this will wake you up, deplete your glycogen stores (allowing you to burn fat) and it will help you feel motivated and to de stress!
In the afternoons, we focus on low-intensity exercise to keep you moving, low-intensity exercise (such as walking) is the best way to lose fat and is great to keep you moving and burning calories after a morning of intense workouts.
It is also important to remember variation;
you will be exercising for a long period, so make sure you are interested in what you are doing!
You could perhaps incorporate a running group, gym class or a new hike into your daily routine.
Make yourself excited to start losing weight, if you stick to walking around your neighborhood and video based workouts, you may give up quickly.
If you want to know the secret to how to lose 10 pounds in a week it’s this:
Go for three small meals, with two small snacks in between.
Choose foods that are natural, healthy, unprocessed and that do not contain high quantities of fat, sweeteners or any added sugar!
In the morning and at midday make sure you are getting complex carbohydrates, vegetables, proteins and good fats.
In the evening take away your carbs!
In the evenings, you will not need the complex carbohydrates because you will be resting after dinner, but you will need protein to help your muscles grow and recover after your workouts. You must make sure that dinner is the last time that you eat, avoid all late-night snacking!
Limit your fruit intake and perhaps stick to having fruit only in the mornings.
We do this because fruit can contain a lot of sugar!
We also want to make sure the carbohydrates that you are having in the morning set you up for the day of exercise and give you fuel to burn.
Drink plenty of water!
Liquid calories such as fruit juice, energy drinks or squash can be very deceiving!
If you must have a cup of coffee or tea, have one cup at breakfast only!
Ensure that you drink 8 glasses of water a day, it will help to keep you full (avoiding hunger pangs) and it will fuel your workout regime. It is important to stay safely hydrated when exercising.
It is important not to give up!!
Losing weight on your own can be hard!
If you have a slip-up, don’t panic, just get straight back to your plan.
Exercising for 8 hours a day can be strenuous, tiring and cause your body to ache, but don’t lose motivation.
It is common to not get the results that you wanted when you are trying to lose weight on your own, but the key is to celebrate any form of weight loss or progression as it is an achievement and you can keep working towards your goal!
Weight training is a great way to boost your metabolism which can slow when you start a new diet!
It also increases your lean body mass which can also help you lose weight.
Finally, a lot of our clients are not just looking to lose weight they want to achieve a leaner and more toned look.
Weight training can help you to achieve this!
As much as we like a glass of wine, alcohol is sadly just empty calories.
One pint of beer can contain anything from 200-300 calories!
Imagine trying to work off those few drinks on a Friday night on the treadmill.
Seeing is believing!
If you feel you might be running low on willpower, try picturing a slimmer you!
