Women's Personal Training

I need to lose some weight can you help with a weight loss program?Weight Loss Measurement

Weight loss involves changes in habits and lifestyle. For some this may mean walking every night after dinner and that will do it. For many other people, it takes changing elements of diet/nutrition, focused fitness training(this may not be what you expect!), stress management techniques to reduce levels of cortisol (very destructive) and sleep optimization to improve body composition and energy. Imagine Fitness will work with you to determine the lifestyle changes that will best suit you and give you amazing results.

For example, if you’re exhausted and stressed but want to start an exercise program, your body will respond best to a yoga program as opposed to running. We use body composition testing to determine hormonal markers like cortisol and decide on your best path forward. Our holistic program is proven, accurate and simple. We can help you lose the weight, quickly and easily, with real food and targeted exercise, just give us a call!

As a woman, I am very concerned that I do not become bulky, I want a lean look. Can you help?Fitness Stretching

This is a very common concern for women, please rest assured, this won’t happen! Typically we train with a full-body program emphasizing a reduction in your target areas. We will train your problem areas with suitable weights and plyometric exercises designed to increase athleticism but not bulk. You’ll see a beautiful change in your shape and silhouette without any increase in size, your measurements will only decrease.

What is the best workout for a woman’s arms?

My favorite exercises for arms are the yoga push-up and the lying tricep extension. Please speak to Imagine Fitness prior to trying these movements.
The yoga push-up is done with the knees on the floor to start, hands at shoulder level, elbows stay tight to the body. Slowly bring the chest down towards the floor, locking the elbows in beside the body. When the arms are at about a 90 degree angle, press the body back up to contract the triceps. Repeat as many times as you can with perfect form, 1-5 times is great to start. It’s tough!

The lying tricep extension is done lying on the floor on your back with light weights to start. I must suggest 5lb weights to start, but be prepared to increase that if you feel you aren’t working hard enough. With the elbows locked above the shoulders, slowly allow the weights to descend toward the hairline with control. Exhale as you push to extend and straighten at the elbow. Repeat 10-15 times for 2-3 sets.

Please contact Imagine Fitness for further instruction about the Yoga Push-Up (Chaturanga) or the lying tricep extension (French press). Excellent exercises, we just want to make sure you’re doing them perfectly so you don’t hurt yourself and get the best results!

What is hormonal fat loss?

Hormonal fat loss is a targeted method designed to determine which elements of your fitness program will provide the fastest results. For example, if your caliper measurements indicate an issue with insulin management, it’s of highest priority for you to reduce sweets, alcohol, bread/carbs and take control of your blood sugar spikes and dips. You will see immediate results with higher energy levels and reduced measurements around the hips and back. However, if your caliper measurements indicate that your umbilical measurement (bellybutton) is the highest priority, then you will see fastest results by managing your stress response. This means we may choose less frequent workouts to avoid overtraining and focus on sleep optimization and yoga/stress management techniques.
