Body Composition

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General

Body composition and body weight have different value. A person could be thin but still have an unhealthy amount of fat because they don’t have a good percentage of muscle.  Muscle is healthy tissue.  Using resistance training is a great way to build muscle mass. There are numerous exercises that can be done to create resistance and muscle hypertrophy.  Push-ups are a great exercise because you don’t need any extra equipment, you don’t need a lot of room and they are not noisy if you live in an apartment or condo. There are many types of push-ups and if you are new to using them, beginner ones are the way to go. Injury prevention is an important tool to keep you from quitting! I wish I could say “all that people need to do to keep a healthy body composition is keep from overeating, exercise and sleep. Unfortunately, some people have had obstacles that may need professional intervention from a knowledgeable naturopath. Hormone imbalance or the chronic use of corticosteroids and some other possible metabolic factors could put a road block in the success of a program that should be working. Don’t give up if that is you.  The naturopath may be the direction for you to get back on the healthy track.  For the basically healthy individual, make no excuses, start today on your good body composition journey.

Though I attend several of her classes, where Darla truly shines is as a personal trainer and
health coach. She saw where I was, and helped me to get where I wanted to be, even though I
wasn’t sure I was communicating it clearly. After just a year my Dr. was amazed to report my
bone density had improved, and my overall health was enhanced. Darla keeps training fresh,
challenging, and enjoyable; and she is always supportive and encouraging. During this time of
sheltering I have been continuing my training sessions via Skype, and her eagle eye doesn’t
miss a thing…still correcting my form and pushing me to go beyond where I thought I could go.
Thank you doesn’t seem nearly enough for someone who got me back on a positive health track
that has enriched body, mind and spirit. But thank you anyway, Darla.
