CARDIO TRAINING AND WEIGHT LOSS

Cardio training is a great way to lose weight and burn fat.

CARDIO TRAINING AND WEIGHT LOSS

Carrying a few too many kilos? Want to lose a bit of weight and feel better about yourself? Fitness training could be the perfect solution for you. It's no secret: playing sport on a regular basis helps you lose weight. Fitness training, whether it's short, intense sessions or longer sessions, helps you tone your body and slim down.

WHICH SPORT IS THE BEST FOR LOSING WEIGHT?

Is fitness training a good way of losing weight effectively and keeping it off? In conjunction with a healthy, balanced diet, being physically active is a key part of losing weight. We all know that to lose weight you have to burn more calories than you eat and create a calorie deficit.

Fitness is your ideal partner when it comes to weight loss. It allows you to maintain your lean body mass, boost your health and get rid of fat.

Working out regularly, whether it's boxing, strength training, cardio training or weight training, really helps you lose weight. The greater the intensity and length of your workout, the greater the calorie deficit and, as a result, the weight loss. But if you combine your exercise with a balanced diet, you don't need to spend hours in the gym.

WHICH SPORT IS THE BEST FOR LOSING YOUR TUMMY?

"I want to lose my tummy" is something that we've all heard a lot or even said.  Unfortunately, it's just not possible to lose fat in very specific parts of your body. You can't just choose to lose weight in one area only. What you need to do is take a more global approach that combines exercise and a good diet.  A routine that combines cardio training, core training, strength training and a balanced diet is a winning combination that will guarantee weight loss.

To maximise your chances of knocking fat off your tummy, we recommend training programmes that feature cardio exercises. HIIT circuits and interval training can really up the calorie deficit. Strength training that focuses on your abs will allow you to tone and build them up
and give them some shape.  .

WHICH SPORT IS THE BEST FOR SLIMMING DOWN YOUR THIGHS?

We've seen how a balanced diet and exercising regularly can help you lose weight. If there's one area in particular that you want to work on (like your thighs for example), you can add specific exercises to your workouts and target a muscle group.

You can focus on your thighs with exercises such as squats, lunges and pelvic lifts. You can have nicely curved glutes and thighs. All you have to do is choose the right exercises. :)

ACHIEVE YOUR IDEAL WEIGHT

A healthy weight, a balanced weight or a benchmark weight for a healthy lifestyle and good level of fitness? There are a lot of ways to describe ideal weight. Ideal weight is the optimal weight for being healthy and physically fit. We reach it when we become adults and it can vary from person to person. Everyone has their own ideal weight, so there's no point in comparing yours with that of the people around you. It's also known as a healthy weight or stable weight and it can vary depending on what's happening to your body: pregnancy, overeating or diets, intensive training or a lack of regular sport. What you should know, however, is that you're always likely to return to your stable weight, even if it's not necessarily your ideal one.

There are several factors that can have a decisive impact on your healthy weight: your size, body shape, frame and your family history.

Your lifestyle also affects your health and your body's equilibrium. Here are some habits you need to make part of your life to keep your weight stable: avoid stressful situations, get plenty of sleep, eat a balanced diet, don't skip meals, and, above all, get some exercise every day.

the best exercises for losing weight?

Sadly, there's no magical exercise for losing weight, though cardio training is the most efficient and effective way of making it happen. It uses up a lot of energy and creates a calorie deficit that will lead to fat being burned off.

In combining cardio exercises with strength training, you can tone up your muscles by targeting specific parts of the body.
