Fitness programs have existed for many years with the aim to integrate two important factors that help us keep our bodies healthy and fit: physical activity and eating healthy. We all know that we should do regular exercise and eat healthy, but do we know exactly why? Let’s have a look at why physical activity and eating a balanced diet is so beneficial.

Benefits of Physical Activity

Exercise is beneficial for everybody. It can make you feel good, increase your energy levels, and do wonders to your body. A few benefits include:

  • Improvement of muscle and bone health
  • Improvement of sleep
  • A decrease in risk of cardiovascular diseases
  • Weight loss and weight maintenance

Benefits of Healthy Eating

A healthy diet gives you all the energy you need to get through the day and the nutrients your body needs to grow strong and vigorous. Some healthy foods include:

  • Calcium in cheese and dairy products to keep your bones and teeth strong
  • Omega-3 fatty acids in oily fish are good for heart health and should be included in your menu at least once a week
  • Green leafy vegetables give your body folate, which helps with digestion and cell division
  • Healthy nuts such as almonds help keep hunger at bay and can help your heart

Benefits of a Fitness Program

Leading a healthy life is not just about going on fad diets and exercising sporadically; it’s about embracing the idea of living life to the fullest by making sure that you look after yourself. Total Health and Fitness’ weight loss program promotes a healthy lifestyle with a combination of a personal fitness program and nutritionist meal plan rolled into one.    

When a fitness program is developed, it is created with only one person in mind – you. All programs are customized to suit your needs and goals. A few benefits included in the Total Health & Fitness plan are:

  • Weekly meeting with a professional trainer and nutritionist
  • Customized nutrition plan
  • Customized exercise plan
  • Weekly in-depth body composition analysis
  • A variety of recipes

Everybody is different and when it comes to your health and lifelong wellness, it’s not one size fits all.  A wellness program teaches you the importance of being active and eating healthy. Once you start to achieve your goals, staying away from sugary foods becomes worth it (you also get used to not eating those bad foods).
