Do You Need A Nutrition Consultation?

Aug 30, 2014   //   by Tracy Rewerts   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on Do You Need A Nutrition Consultation?

Do You Need A Nutrition Consultation?According to some reports, by 2030 more than half the U.S. population will be obese. It’s an epidemic and there’s something you can do about it right now. Whether you want to lose weight, gain muscle, and live a healthy lifestyle, your limiting factor usually lies beyond just exercising. Nutrition is arguably more than 70% of  the battle of getting healthy and I can help you.

In addition to my weekly Fitness Groups and Time For Change Mobile Personal Training I offer to my clients, I’ll now be able to even further assist you with your health and fitness goals. In April I passed my exam from the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Fitness Nutrition Specialist (FNS).

My goal is to help provide you with:

  • Up-to-date nutritional information, consult clients on proper food intake, weight loss/management strategies, recommendations of nutrients, and guidance to help you achieve your health and weight loss goals.
  • Nutritional information so that it will become a lifestyle for you that you can actually stick with and enjoy at the same time.
  • Information on how activity, energy, caloric needs, metabolism, and food choices can affect your weight.

Educating you on how to read food labels, recognize appropriate portion sizes, and make better food choices to complement your goals and nutritional needs.
What separates a good personal trainer from a great one is their ability to change their clients lives by changing their lifestyle habits in and outside of the gym. If you’re exercising on a regular basis and not seeing the results that you’d like, it’s a good indication that it may be due to a poor diet and poor lifestyle habits outside of the workouts.

Here are some of the services that I’ll be offering as part of my Nutritional Consultations & Packages:

  • Weight Loss/Management
  • Nutritional Meal Planning
  • Grocery Shopping Learning Trip
  • Kitchen Clean Out

I look forward to providing professional in-home personal training and nutritional guidance designed to meet your individual health and fitness goals.  Click on the Time For Change Personal Training Services tab for details on my Nutrition Consultation Services.

 

Actions Today = Better Health Tomorrow

Feb 4, 2014   //   by Tracy Rewerts   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on Actions Today = Better Health Tomorrow

Your Actions Today Will Bring You Closer To Better Health Tomorrow

We know that we can’t predict our future, but we can control the habits and actions we do today to help make for a healthier tomorrow.

So let’s throw out the question: What kind of health do you want for your body 10-20 years from now?

Do you want a body that can walk around the block with ease, ski, hike, play games with the kids or grandkids, swim, bike around the neighborhood, workout and many more?

Or…do you want a body that will hurt with every step, one that gets out of breath with minimal activity, one that would rather sit on the couch, is overweight, maybe in a wheelchair or a motorized scooter, or you may not be around to experience life with your family and friends in 20 years?

I want to help you be the first set of answers and I hope you’ll reach out to me so I can help you.

Actions Today = Better Health Tomorrow

Here’s another scenario: As a mom you would do anything for your kids, right?  You will make sure they have everything they need, stay up all night when they are sick, and you’ll make sure they get to the various appointments, practices/games, etc. 

Once your baby is born and they grow up, the attention usually continues to stay on the child and that is when many moms begin to slowly lose the importance of herself and her health.

When you, as a mom, take care of yourself, you’re modeling healthy behaviors to your kids.  We all know that your kids watch what you do and learn from what you do much more then what you say. Your kids will see that mom is taking the time to plan and cook healthy meals, read labels at the store, and workout with weights to increase strength, etc.

Of course this isn’t a 100% guarantee that your child will grow up to be healthy, but it’s a great start as many kids want to be just like mom or dad.

Carbon Valley Half Marathon Autism RaceMoms, I would like to encourage you to bring your female teens (age 12 and up) along with you to one of the five ladies fitness groups I offer in Frederick and Niwot. It’s a time of getting healthy, fun, and mother/daughter time spent together. I’m also a mobile personal trainer that can come to your home and help you and your family workout together. 

Other ideas would be for your family to do a fun run or 5K together. Pictured here you see me and my family together last year as we did the Carbon Valley Half Marathon Autism Race together.

If you have younger children, you can also incorporate your kids/grandkids into your activities or workouts at home sometimes, and let them see that you’re taking your own health and wellness seriously. 

If you need help getting started or you’re ready to take action today for a healthier tomorrow, I’m here to help you through exercise and nutritional help. Click here or on the Time For Change Personal Training Services tab to start changing your life for the better today.

How To Assess If You Are Making Fitness Improvements

Jul 8, 2013   //   by Tracy Rewerts   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on How To Assess If You Are Making Fitness Improvements

How To Assess If You Are Making Fitness Improvements

You’ve been exercising and eating healthy for several weeks and now you want to see if you’ve made any progress since you started. There are many ways to check and see if you’re meeting any goals and getting the results you’re looking for.

Let’s get this out the way right off the bat….you can weigh yourself on the scale, but this may not be your best option. Scales measure your current weight and can’t tell the difference between muscle, fat, water, or food. It may take a month to start seeing results on the scale. This is when a lot of people will give up, thinking it’s not working, but this is when you must keep exercising and eating healthy. If you stay consistent you will see results, even on the scale in time.

Are You Making Fitness Improvements?

Listed below are a few better ways to see if your body is changing and if you’re making progress:

  • First, find a picture of what you looked like before you started exercising, then take a picture of yourself today. Stay consistent with your workout and nutrition plan and then take your picture again. Make sure to wear the exact same clothes for these recent pictures so you can see the difference, and also try to take photos of the front and side view to compare both.
  • It’s more about inches loss, so you’ll start to notice how your clothes fit since you started working out. Even if the numbers on the scale don’t change muchHow To Assess If You're Making Fitness Improvements at first, your clothes should start to feel looser and you’ll start to feel better. Muscle weighs more than fat and it takes up less space, so as you lose fat and gain muscle, you’ll be losing inches in no time.
  • Measure your resting heart rate before you get out of bed every morning for the next 3 months. If you’re not sure how to find your pulse, you can do this easily by following one of these two ways. On the side of your neck, put your second and third fingers about 2-3 finger widths below your jaw bone under your ear, or on the palm side down of your wrist. Don’t forget to record your number every day. If you’re consistent with your exercise and nutrition regimen, over time, you should see a drop in your resting heart rate.
  • Have an official fitness assessment done to see if you’re making the progress you want . A fitness assessment will help you establish your current fitness and health levels. It can also help provide you with the motivation you need to set new goals for you and your health.

At Time For Change Personal Training, you get a free fitness assessment and nutrition consult with the purchase of any personal training package. My clients also receive another fitness assessment every 4 weeks to see where they’re at with making progress and meeting their goals. It’s important to see what area’s you’ve been succeeding at and which ones need improvement, so I can help you adjust your fitness or nutrition plan according to your results and goals.

If you need help with improving your fitness, nutrition, and overall health, I can help you set up a plan so you can start seeing results. Click on the Time For Change Personal Training Services Tab to see what plans I offer and where to start.
