Do you ever wonder why most people fail to achieve their weight loss goal or, worse, achieve it and end up fatter than when they started?  Can you speak from experience?

 I know I can; it has happened to me several times. So I honestly understand how frustrating and demotivating it can be. 

But after years of research and success with my clients, I figured out the problem. I realized that there were four main reasons why people never achieve their goals:

1. You need to know why you want to lose weight.

Saying you want to lose weight is not enough. You need to dig deep and figure out why you want this.

2. Your goals are not specific enough. 

Therefore there is no plan to succeed. Failing to plan is planning to fail.

3. You fail to create a realistic lifestyle change.

For example, a diet is only temporary; you need to make the changes you can commit to doing for the rest of your life.

4.  You lack the proper motivation and support.

There will be many rough days, and your support system can help you get through them.

 Before you start, I know by now you must have some questions, so I’m going to answer them.

Why should I hire a personal trainer?

I have had a great experience with this place. I started training with Kevin about four weeks ago and can already see results. He is attentive and personalizes the workouts according to your goals and limitations. I have worked out with 6 different personal trainers in the past few years. Kevin is by far the best, I highly recommend.”

Kirstin W. Everton

Graphic Designer, Apple

I’ve been training with Kevin for 3 months and it’s been a great experience. He’s motivating and consistent and that’s what I expect from a trainer. I’ve seen good results in this short time and I’m looking forward to the long term effect. Training has become more than exercise, it’s been a life-changing experience.”

Tammy Vinett

Lawyer, Brolly Recruitment

I highly recommend A Better You. I had been working out regularly on my own and not seeing the results I wanted. Kevin with his nutritional counselling and training helped me achieve my fitness goals. I’ve been training with Kevin and he is a pleasure to work with. He’s very knowledgeable and motivating and his workouts are always fun and challenging! A Better You has transformed my body and I’m stronger and more fit than I’ve ever been!

Lisa Wong

Kevin is an amazing trainer and person! My husband and I have seen big results under his personalized training. I would highly recommend!”

Alexandra Quinn

Professor, U of T

I trained with Kevin and he’s simply the best! He’s an expert in his craft and also leads by example. The studio is very clean and not overcrowded (which I prefer) I was happy with my results as I lost a lot of inches and built some muscle according to my body type. Nutrition options are available. However, if you really want a next-level look at food benefits…he’s your man. Bottom line, if you put in the work, he will lead you to success!”

Karen Defina

Customer Service, Google

I have been going here several times a week for the last 2 years. The gym is incredibly clean, and Kevin is amazing! He’s professional and gets the results you’re looking for, no matter your goals. I would highly recommend! If I could give 10 stars, I would!”

Brenda Kim

Management, League

I started working with Kevin in June and he helped educate me on the habits that had contributed to weight gain despite high levels of activity. Over 6 months I’ve lost 47 pounds by applying and sticking to the plans he built for me. I’ve recommended him to several people and will continue to do so because of the results and how he helps make a lifestyle change sustainable over the long-term. Trust me, he’ll get you where you want to go if you follow through on his instructions! Thanks, Kevin!”

Aleksandra Lobov

Administrative Assistant, TDSB

Love it! Lots of encouragement! Kevin has made a huge difference in my life. Work with and him and you won’t go wrong.”

Hiring a trainer may be a good choice if you’ve been exercising consistently for several weeks or months and aren’t losing weight or reaching your goals. … Teach you how to lift weights and do other exercises: Too often, people focus on cardio to lose weight, but you need strength and core training.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eSome want an individualized program to lose weight or get in shape, while others need to be held accountable for their workouts. Wherever you are on your exercise journey, a personal trainer may be just what you need to reach your fitness and weight loss goals finally.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eMotivation comes from all kinds of places, both internally and externally. You may have intrinsic reasons to exercise, such as wanting to be healthier or getting off your high blood pressure medication.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eBut, you also need extrinsic motivators to keep exercising, such as wanting to lose weight to look better in a bathing suit or for your high school reunion. A personal trainer can become that motivator.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eIn fact, a study by Winget al. (u003ca href=u0022 compared the results of a small group (3-4 clients) that appointed a personal trainer to a control group with minimal supervision. Those appointed a personal trainer had better adherence (84% vs. 69%) to the exercise sessions during the 24 weeks*.

u003cstrongu003eHow much weight can you lose with a personal trainer?u003c/strongu003e

The importance of personal trainers has been confirmed in several studies. Ratamass et al. (23) compared people trained by personal trainers to people working independently. Results revealed that both Strength Gains and Ratings of Perceived Exertion scores were significantly higher in people who worked under the guidance of a personal trainer. Similar results were seen in studies by Maloof et al. (17) and Mazetti et al. (18).u003cbru003eu003cbru003eEarlier studies that have used individually supervised training in moderately trained subjects have shown increased leg press strength of 26 and 30% after 19 and 12 weeks of resistance training, respectively (5, 21).u003cbru003eu003cbru003eIn this recent study, Storer et al. showed significant improvements in strength gains and muscle in the personal trainer-supervised groups compared to the unsupervised group. Only the personal trainer group showed improvement in aerobic fitness.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eLastly, the most recent study by u003ca href=u0022 target=u0022_blanku0022 rel=u0022noreferrer noopeneru0022u003eDias et al.u003c/au003e showed that working with a trainer has lasting effects. For example, teaching trainees what weight they can lift can improve their long-term gains in strength and muscle.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eIn a u003ca href=u0022 target=u0022_blanku0022 rel=u0022noreferrer noopeneru0022u003ereviewu003c/au003e entitled “Why Do Individuals Not Lose More Weight From an Exercise Intervention…,” the investigators suggested it was primarily due to low doses of prescribed exercise.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eThe u003ca href=u0022 target=u0022_blanku0022 rel=u0022noreferrer noopeneru0022u003eminimumu003c/au003e u003ca href=u0022 target=u0022_blanku0022 rel=u0022noreferrer noopeneru0022u003eamountu003c/au003e of u003ca href=u0022 target=u0022_blanku0022 rel=u0022noreferrer noopeneru0022u003eextrau003c/au003e physical exertion that we should expect to prevent weight gain is “200–300 min per week” minimum. u003cbru003eu003cbru003eThis level can at least help maintain our weight, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Physical Activity Guidelines Advisory Committee.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eFor significant weight loss, however, the committee prescribes closer to a minimum of 450 minutes a week or more than an hour a day. Note that these times are for moderate-intensity activity, such as walking. For a vigorous activity like running or rapid cycling and FBX training, exercise duration can be cut by more than half.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eFor those who started obese but slimmed down and are attempting to u003ca href=u0022 target=u0022_blanku0022 rel=u0022noreferrer noopeneru0022u003epreventu003c/au003e u003ca href=u0022 target=u0022_blanku0022 rel=u0022noreferrer noopeneru0022u003eweight regainu003c/au003e, one analysis estimated a threshold of eighty minutes a day was necessary. This falls into the daily sixty-to-ninety-minute range suggested in one systematic review, which is what an earlier version of the u003cemu003eDietary Guidelines for Americansu003c/emu003e recommended.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eThe number on the u003ca href=u0022 target=u0022_blanku0022 rel=u0022noreferrer noopeneru0022u003escaleu003c/au003e isn’t the whole story. When individuals were put through four months of strength training, they didn’t achieve significant weight loss. They did, however, lose about eight pounds of body fat! The reason that weight loss didn’t register on the scale is that they u003cemu003egainedu003c/emu003e about seven pounds of lean body mass.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eBased on averaging together a dozen or so u003ca href=u0022 target=u0022_blanku0022 rel=u0022noreferrer noopeneru0022u003estudiesu003c/au003e, it might take three months of about three hours of aerobic exercise a week to take an inch off our waists.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eSo as we spoke about previously, working with a trainer improves results, and FBX-style workouts have shown to double the results in half the time*. u003cbru003eu003cbru003eWorkouts require about u003ca href=u0022 percent lessu003c/au003e of a time commitment, so FBX participants accomplish in about an hour and a half a week which would take regular workouts closer to two and a half hours.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eFBX workouts include movements that have been proven to burn the most calories and achieve more significant results. Because the metabolic cost of an exercise correlates directly to the amount of muscle worked, we include multi-joint exercises whenever possible.[u003ca href=u0022] Involve more muscle, and you consume more energy.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eWe also use tricks like lowering the weight as slowly as possible, which has been shown to significantly impact energy expenditure.[2]u003cbru003eBetter yet, excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC) raises dramatically. EPOC, often referred to as afterburn, measures the energy expended to return your body to its normal resting state after a workout (u003ca href=u0022 u003cbru003eu003cbru003eWe maximize EPOC by performing workouts that include things like circuit training or supersets. This type of training has been shown to have more significant effects on the magnitude and duration of EPOC than traditional forms of strength training.[u003ca href=u0022][u003ca href=u0022] u003cbru003eu003cbru003eOn average, you’ll drop 1 to 2 pounds weekly, seeing noticeable results in three to six weeks. So, the longer you train, the more weight you’ll lose*.

u003cstrongu003eHow many calories does a personal training session burn?u003c/strongu003e

The energy cost of an FBX-style workout has been estimated to be 7 kcal/kg/hr10. That averages to around 600 calories per hour for an average 180-pound male. Not too shabby*.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eBut remember, The more muscle you build, the more energy your body burns at rest. That’s why lifting weights to build lean muscle should be at the top of your to-do list, regardless of your physique goals.

u003cstrongu003eHow many times a week should you see a personal trainer?u003c/strongu003e

For the best results possible, you need to come at least 3 times per week. The “magic number” for the most benefit is three times per week.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eTraining for Fat Lossu003cbru003eu003cbru003eStudies show it might take three months of about three hours of aerobic exercise a week to take an inch off our waists.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eFor significant weight loss, however, a minimum of 270 minutes a week for a vigorous activity like running or rapid cycling and FBX training is prescribed.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eTo lose body fat, you should work out three to five times a week. One to two of your sessions should focus on strength training to build muscle mass. The rest of your training sessions should focus on cardiovascular exercise.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eThese sessions can include circuit training and exercises that alternate between intensities. For example, you can make Monday and Wednesday strength training days with the other three days of the week dedicated to cardio.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eLean Musclesu003cbru003eu003cbru003eHitting the gym twice a week is fine if you’re looking to preserve the muscle mass you’ve already built, but if elongating those muscles is your goal, you may need to rethink your current exercise regimen.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eThe Newbieu003cbru003eu003cbru003eIf you haven’t exercised in a long time or have never worked out before, prioritize meeting your trainer two to three times a week. This regularity ensures you develop the proper form when exercising, prioritize your fitness as a commitment, and work out enough to see progress.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eSince muscle memory is powerful, you don’t want to develop bad habits in the gym on your own. These bad habits can hinder your results and lead to serious injuries.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eScheduling regular training sessions also eliminates any excuses for not going. After two or three months of working out regularly with your trainer, you might choose to reduce the number of sessions or shift focus to different goals or styles of training. The most important thing is that you feel confident about your decision.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eTraining for an Eventu003cbru003eu003cbru003eIf you’re training for an upcoming event, building muscle, strength, and flexibility targeted for the event is critical. u003cbru003eu003cbru003eWorking out with a personal trainer the weeks before the event prepares you mentally and physically. Depending on your current fitness levels, your trainer will recommend several training sessions to help you achieve your goals.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eFor instance, if you’re training for an endurance road race, you may have three to four days of running with one to two days of gym work, which could be a mix of weightlifting and light cardio.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eHowever, if you’re training for something like a Tough Mudder or Spartan, then the focus of your sessions should be adjusted accordingly.

u003cstrongu003eHow long does it take to see results from personal training?u003c/strongu003e

The results you’ll see with a trainer depend on the weekly time invested and the goals.
