  • Benefits of an Online Personal Trainer

    An online personal trainer can be a great help to you in directing you toward your health and fitness goals.

    As the fitness industry continues to mature, more niche options arise. It's only really been in the last few years that online personal trainer's have begun to receive some significant exposure as a viable alternative to a classical face-to-face personal trainer.

    So what are the main benefits of hiring an online personal trainer? Let's discuss some primary benefits:

    Higher Level of Support

    This is one of the most profound benefits to hiring an online personal trainer. A classical professional would provide you with support during the session. During the remainder of the week, you can be left to your own devices. However an online PT can answer questions whenever you like to keep you on track!

    No Appointments

    Gone are the days where you have to book in with your professional for a one hour exercise session. Now, you can communicate with your trainer regularly and thus stay motivated and accountable throughout the entire week.

    Avoid Embarrassment

    Some people get embarrassed training with a trainer in a commercial gym. If you fall into this category, then an online personal trainer may be of greater benefit to you. This way, you can focus on your program rather than feeling self conscious. Your exercise and eating plans will be provided to you along with all the 1on1 support you need.

    Exercise at Your Own Pace

    If you dislike training with a personal trainer in the flesh and would prefer to train by yourself or with a friend, then an online personal trainer can be a great solution. You are provided with the plans to follow, which you can do so at your own pace.

    Exercise Wherever You Like!

    Because your own dedicated professional is on the internet, they can reach you no matter where you live! You can live in a regional area, or go on a business trip to the other side of the world and still have that same professional keeping you on track!

    Of course, this type of fitness professional is not suited to everyone. Personally, I feel that it is best to proceed with a face-to-face trainer if you are elderly or have serious health concerns. In such circumstances, it may be far safer and beneficial to you to opt for 1 on 1 support.

    At Amino Z, we do offer award-winning online personal training solutions to help you to transform yourself in 12 weeks. If you are interested, we invite you to find out more about our online personal training services.

  • The Best Fat Loss Supplement

    Within Australia, there are a variety of supplements available to purchase that claim to assist in fat loss. You have everything from green tea extract to caffeine based fat loss substances, including many "proprietary blends". Anyone who is new to the world of fat loss is sure to be baffled by the numerous choices available!

    So, here's the golden question - what is the best fat loss supplement? I'll begin with the long answer.

    When you are seeking to lose fat weight, the most effective method to lose fat effectively, safely and permanently is to develop brand new lifestyle habits. By developing a new lifestyle that is supportive of fat loss, you will lose inevitably weight.

    Ultimately, your body is a function of the environment that you subject it to. A 50kg person exercises and eats in a way that supports a body mass of 50kg. A 150kg person exercises and eats in a way that supports a body mass of 150kg. Yes, there are of course many, many details to consider, yet at the end of the day, this is the reality for a normal human being. Of course, if there are medical considerations (such as a thyroid condition for example), then it isn't quite this simple and you should consult your doctor.

    If you haven't developed an environment that supports the weight loss that you want to achieve, you are not going to lose weight - period.

    Now getting back to the best fat loss supplement, it is imperative that before you consider supplements, you establish a sound nutritional and exercise foundation that supports healthy, sustainable weight loss. In all honesty, there is no "magic" supplement that will be your ultimate answer to fat loss.

    Supplements are designed to be exactly that - supplements. They compliment a sound exercise and nutritional regime. They do not replace consistent exercise and good nutrition! You will be chasing false hopes if you expect the next fat loss supplement to be the holy grail of weight loss.

    If you would like more information on the fundamentals to weight loss, please read my article "How to Lose Weight".

    Considering that you are currently losing weight at a healthy, safe and effective level, then I would advise that now would be a great time to consider supplementing with various fat loss supplements in order to ascertain which (if any) are effective in enhancing your results. Here are a few natural, healthy, cost effective and safe supplements that I would recommend:

    CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)
    Green Tea Extract
    L-Carnitine Powder

    Each of these have plenty of scientific evidence backing up their effectiveness with regards to fat loss. But remember - they will do very little for you if you don't have a sound nutritional and exercise regime established!

    And now for the short answer to the question "What is the best fat loss supplement?" - There is no "best" fat loss supplement! There are a variety of supplemental "tools" available within the market and you will have to experiment to see which product(s) are most effective for your goals.
