Exercise for weight loss in Yeovil Gyms

Lose weight Tone Up Feel Great


Exercise for weight loss

Although it’s probably the No. 1 new year’s resolution, successful weight loss eludes most people, including those who need it most. I’ve written about weight loss before, and shared my most effective strategies yet I realise that there are still many people who struggle when it comes to dropping a few pounds.

Because there is so much conflicting information about how to lose weight, many people are confused and overwhelmed by the thought of it. Every second magazine I see in the stores promises to help you get a flat tummy or rock-hard abs in a few short weeks.

If you’re determined to lose weight and are looking for some direction, here’s a no-nonsense, tried-and-true program for toning muscle, burning fat and being happy with your body. I can’t actually make you follow through every step of the way, but I can be sure you know what to do and how to do it.

I truly believe that an individual should be able to maintain their body weight at desirable levels by doing regular resistance training and eating properly. You shouldn’t need to grind away at cardiovascular exercise for hours each week just to keep from gaining fat. If this is the case, then you’re eating too much. For anyone whose goal is to steadily lose body fat, I find some cardio is helpful, and the following schedule works very well:

Always consult your physician before beginning or modifying your fitness program.

Choosing a Gym

Always choose a gym that has a variety of resistance machines, free weights and cardio equipment.

Tone Zone Fitness Centre is a very friendly non trendy gym for Yeovil residents

Weekly training schedule


Full body resistance training program — 40 to 60 minutes


Cardiovascular exercise — 30 to 45 minutes

Saturday: Be active

Sunday: Rest

The full-body resistance training sessions will jump-start your metabolism by stimulating your muscle tissue. This will increase the number of calories that you burn during all activities. By training the body on non-consecutive days, you’ll give your muscles time to recover and repair so they’re ready to go for your next workout.

The cardiovascular activity days will improve your cardiovascular health, while burning extra calories.

Good luck.
