Build Your Business With Effective Personal Trainer Marketing

For sure you started your weight loss programme with great enthusiasm and hope – hope that in a few months you will emerge a new trim you, ready to take on the world. But the story is not going according to plan! After weeks of sweating it out and some strain and pain, your body seems to be like a reluctant debutante showing little or no sign of shedding those extra kilos.

Here are 10 simple personal training marketing courses

At Work

As a responsible employee in Europe you would probably get totally involved in the assignments you have on hand, probably all the time indulging in multi-tasking. But if you take a minute to think clearly, you will realise that doing several jobs at the same time will not work.

Your mind will not be concentrating completely on any job in Malta so in reality nothing is fully achieved. Instead, under such pressure you would probably start to think about food, and without knowing it bring out a few snacks to lessen the tension you are undergoing. Improper snacking during the day is always a dangerous habit if you want to lose weight.

When and what snacks to eat

If your work schedule leads to long breaks in between meals, you might tend to get extra hungry and totally binge out at meal times. To avoid such a situation you should keep available different types of healthy snacks such as fruit, nuts, whole wheat crackers and low-fat cheese. Whenever you feel a few hunger pangs in between meals have some of these snacks  they will not only take away the hunger, but are also beneficial for health purposes.

On training

If you are using aerobic exercises as part of your daily work out in Malta, though helpful, it should be accompanied by a few strength training exercises to increase muscle mass and up the metabolism. Aerobics by itself will burn calories but will not have a long term impact on your metabolism.

Tea vs Water

It is common knowledge that you should drink at least eight glasses a day of water. Though your body needs this, there may be a way to lessen the burden of drinking full 8 glasses of water. Instead, you could intersperse the liquid consumption with tea. You could sip nice hot tea the whole day  green tea, black tea, herbal tea  it will definitely help to back up your water requirement. As a health drink, especially green tea, it contains antioxidants which is said to contribute to weight loss, as also protection against cancer.


Importance of good sleep

A good nights sleep is very important. During sleep your metabolism gets revved up and the longer you sleep, the more fat gets burnt. A good nights sleep also helps to regulate the hormones that control energy production and appetite. The body produces ghrelin triggering cravings, and a minimum of leptin which helps to control your food intake.

The goodness of walking

Though running is a great calorie burner and a good form for cardiovascular exercise when wanting to achieve weight loss, not everyone feels comfortable if they have to run. So instead you can go for a nice long walk at a brisk pace, increasing the distance and pace gradually over time.

Use opportune times to work out

If you are a working person you might not find too much free time to work out. If possible use your lunch hour to do this. If there is a gym nearby that would be ideal, if not find a quiet corner where you will be able to do some valuable stretching and bending exercises. You could carry a pair of appropriate running shoes and a change of clothes with you to the office.

Eating out

When you decide to have a meal at a restaurant in Malta, you could go online and check out the different dining choices. With prior knowledge you can plan what to eat and enjoy a healthy meal. Often meals on offer are very high with calorie content and even dishes like salads etc. can prove detrimental to weight loss. Social media marketing these days also helps people with their fitness goals, social media keeps people accountable and motivated so they stick with the program longer.

Apples to the rescue

Fruit is great for having as a snack when trying to lose weight. Eating an apple as a mid morning snack can do wonders to keep the hunger pangs at bay till you get to lunch time.

Is stress eating your weakness? 

Your success in weight loss may depend on your answers to the following queries:

  • Yes  you always eat when stressed out
  • You only indulge in very high stress situations
  • No  you are able to stick to a healthy diet

Emailing your clients recipes and fitness tips is a great way to stay in touch with people and spread the word about your fitness business.
