What is the Secret to Losing Weight?

People are always looking for the secret, ‘quick-fix’ way to lose weight. With the market flooded with pills and miracle diet plans, you could throw thousands of dollars away looking for an easy answer to reducing body fat.

The truth is that there is no easy or quick way to lose weight. Weight loss requires some hard work, an exercise routine and dedication if you truly want to see lasting results. Even if you could drop weight with a magic pill, keeping it off often requires a change in lifestyle and a strong focus on self-improvement that no drug offers.

Unfortunately, some people are going to be more prone to gaining weight than others too. Different body types and different metabolisms play a huge role in how each individual gains and loses fat – if you are prone to gaining weight quickly then you need to pay extra attention to your diet and your level of fitness.

How Can Velca Help Me Lose Weight?

We believe in a holistic approach to health at Velca – when clients come to us complaining about back pain, neck pain or other injuries, we don’t want to just provide short-term relief through chiropractic and massage therapy; we want to work with you to get healthy and stay healthy!

Obesity can play a huge part in pain and injury. If the body isn’t strong and resilient, symptoms will often continue to reoccur and you will be more prone to additional injuries down the road. Our personal trainers will work with you to devise a positive change in lifestyle through better nutrition and a personal fitness regime that suits you.

Fitness training is a general approach to wellbeing and weight loss, designed to improve the cardiovascular system and get rid of body fat. Fitness training is a key component of any successful weight loss program. Cardio workouts make your body run more efficiently, increase your lifespan and are just the beginning in keeping you active and healthy.

Strength training refers to exercises that increase muscle mass and strengthen the body to be more resilient. A stronger body is more resistant to pain – more muscle means better support for the body and will make injuries a less likely occurrence. What a lot of people don’t realise is that muscle burns more calories than fat too; strength training will tone your body and increase your metabolism, making it easier to keep the weight off.

Why Do I Need a Weight Loss Program?

As well as designing a personalised nutritional and fitness programme, a personal trainer at Velca provides the motivation that you need to achieve your goals. Successful weight loss requires a high level of commitment and focus – it’s our job to get you healthy and keep you healthy by giving you the tools and the desire to keep weight off.

Personal Fitness is a key part of our unique Velca Method. At Velca we aim to correct, relax and strengthen the body through chiropractic, massage therapy and personal fitness. Don’t live with pain and, instead, choose the lifestyle you want to lead by getting healthy and staying healthy at our health centre in Auckland.
