What Is Nutrition and Fitness Coaching?
Nutrition and fitness coaching involves a series of meetings with a professional dietitian and personal trainers. During these sessions, you’ll cover your specific goals, strengths, and limitations. Your nutritionist will learn more about which foods you like and which you don’t get enough of in your current diet. In tandem with a personal trainer, your nutritionist will create a plan that accounts for your health needs, tastes, and personal goals. In addition to a general meal and workout plan, you’ll also receive these benefits:
- Continual guidance from professionals
- A supportive community at Cambridge Fitness
- Progress tracking
- Help understanding results
Why Good Nutrition Is Essential
Between work and family responsibilities, it’s easy to let good nutrition fall by the wayside. After all, a trip through the drive-thru seems a lot simpler than going home to cook something from scratch. Nevertheless, it’s crucial to make time for good nutrition. If you stay on top of your food goals, you can take advantage of all the following benefits:
- Boosts immune system
- Reduced risk of heart disease and diabetes
- Strengthens bones
- Helps maintain a healthy weight
- Improves digestive system
- Supports strong muscles
- May lead to a longer life
- Promotes self-confidence and allows you to feel better about yourself in general
Steps Toward Good Nutrition (and Overall Health!)
The good news about improving your health and wellbeing is that you can take all the major steps on your own! While our team is glad to help you on your journey, you can jumpstart your new nutrition plan from the comfort of your own home. Here are a few basic steps for kicking off the process:
Find What You Like
Most people won’t stick with a meal plan they don’t like. First things first—identify some healthy foods you truly enjoy. Maybe you love fruit or want to incorporate more fish into your diet—both are excellent starts! Once you know what you like, find recipes that include those ingredients. But don’t forget to try new things along the way, and remember you may not love every single food you try. With the help of your dietitian, you’ll find foods you love that contain all the following essential nutrients:
Get Comfy in the Kitchen
Getting comfortable with cooking daily is an important part of ensuring your nutrition plan succeeds. If you aren’t a seasoned chef yet, remember that practice makes perfect! You may mess up your salmon dish a few times before you get to enjoy a delicious dinner.
Create a Workout Plan
Once your nutrition is under control, you can make a workout plan. Our personal trainers and nutritionists work together to help you achieve optimal help. Consult with our fitness professionals to build an exercise regimen that incorporates all these fundamentals:
- Cardio endurance
- Strength training
- Balance exercises
- Flexibility and stretching
Adjust Your Diet as Necessary
A few weeks into your nutrition plan, you may find that it doesn’t work perfectly for you. It’s important to stop and reflect every once in a while, and make changes to your diet as necessary. You may find you need more protein and need a nutritionist to help you find new sources for this essential nutrient. Never fear—Cambridge Fitness is with you every step of the way!
