How can your time in the gym be more effective for your holistic wellness? There are many different reasons for going to the gym or starting an exercise program. Some reasons are to maintain general health, weight loss, to look better, to feel better, cardio vascular health, or to be mindful and create time in the day to focus on yourself. These are all valid and good reasons to exercise! One that perhaps people don’t realize is that you CAN effectively work towards being pain free from chronic injuries and actually prevent injury! All you need is the right person to guide you on your journey and help you attain your goals, no matter what they are.
The number of personal trainers out there is enormous, and often you don’t get your money’s worth as the level of education needed to attain a PT license varies so greatly. That’s why we highly recommend Byron Johnston with Strength Revolution. No matter what your needs are he can produce the results you are looking for!
Byron explains his philosophy in his article “Why Strength?”
”If I could only change one variable in your life that would have the longest, most powerful impact on your quality of life now and well into the future; it would be to increase your strength.
The importance of the accumulation of general strength applies to men, women, the young and particularly those over the age of 40, because strength is the basis of all physical interaction and therefore has a huge impact on the quality of life as we age. It just so happens that sporting performances and great physiques are also built upon by developing strength. The classic toned athletic look that motivates so many people go to the gym is the presence of developed lean body mass (muscle) and the absence of too much body fat.
The training methods I use represents the most time efficient, practical way to approach gym training, whether your end goal is to enhance your presence on the playing field, build a toned, lean physique or just know that your time spent exercising is optimal for a long healthy life. “

HOW TO GET PROFESSIONAL RESULTS
“I select specific exercises and then make a week by week programme that is targeted to disrupt my client’s homeostasis (their current ability level) thereby leading the body to adapt to this new demand placed upon it. The result is my clients progress as they adapt to each new level of training.
That is proper planned training. The art and science comes from the programming you establish through your own research or the guidance of a good coach. Either way results will arrive and usually with the use of simple and effective exercises combined with some straight forward meal planning.
Exercise does burn calories, but its unquantifiable nature can leave you wondering for a long time if you are ever going to get where you truly want with your physique and goals vs. the time you are spending in the gym.”
