Charting Your Weight Loss Success

Knowing what you need to do to lose weight with a Chicago personal trainer is only part of the answer.  Tracking your progress is the other.

Below is a real example of weight loss accountability.  This personal training client, Tim, has lost nearly 8 lbs between 10/07/14 and 11/07/14.  Although this is right on pace, he was curious why he didn't lose more.  Take a look and see what trend you find.

Based on the data, my personal training client showed inconsistency in his numbers over the weekends (which Tim has noted as eating things he normally doesn't choose during the week).  Overall, though, Tim is on the right track and has been more consistent with his weight loss trend with this new weekend awareness.  

Tim's reasons for his recent weight loss success:

"Besides eating a vegetarian diet [this doesn't mean pasta time, folks] and cutting out alcohol, consistency and only focusing on what I want to put in my body (instead of what I don't want) are the reasons for my success"

Now it's your turn.

Should I hire a personal trainer?

Considering the current trends, you'll be left out if you don't at least have a gym membership.  Is this enough to be considered healthy?  I think you know the answer to that.  Gyms oversell their fitness memberships because they know that nearly 67% of their fitness members won't show up.

What does this mean?  The toughest part of fitness is accountability.  With so many personal and professional pulls, most people don't have the time or energy to research the best nutrition or exercises.  Maybe they'll try a couple of things in the gym on their own.  Eventually, though, they'll be bored, injured, or frustrated by lack of results after a couple of weeks without anyone there to be accountable to.

Hiring a personal trainer in Chicago will not only help you discover the proper exercise and nutrition for you, but he or she will also identify any dysfunctional movements, asymmetries, or challenges to your success.  Most important, the personal trainer will keep you accountable to someone (which increases your rate of success).
