Achieving a summer body that you’ve always wanted with WarmSculpting treatments is easy and effective. However, maintaining your physique is often what people find to be quite difficult, especially throughout the holidays and end of year festivities. It takes a combination of healthy eating, enjoyable exercise, quality sleep and consistency to ensure your WarmSculpting results are maintained.
Mustering the motivation to hit the gym after a long day at work can some days feel like an impossible task. Everyone struggles with motivation now and then, so it’s important to keep active in ways that you actually enjoy and look forward to. One of the best ways to stick to a regular exercise regime is to recruit a friend or family member to exercise with you. With someone else to help keep you accountable, you will be more motivated to get up and keep moving. Spin classes are a popular option to get your heart pumping as these short but intense workouts burn a number of calories whilst adding some healthy competition to keep your workout interesting. Another option is an energetic Zumba class, as it is often considered the best exercise for those who hate to workout – the upbeat dance movements help to tone your body all over, especially the core.
Enjoying a sustainable, balanced diet that is abundant in a variety of nutrients is the most essential part of maintaining your new physique. Ensuring the body is receiving adequate amounts of both macro (protein, carbohydrates and fats) and micro (vitamins and minerals) nutrients to fuel your daily activities is crucial. Acquiring the knowledge of beneficial foods is also an easy way to keep yourself in check – for example, knowing a combination of carbs, fats and proteins will keep you fuller for longer throughout the day will make you more likely to choose eggs and avocado on toast instead of a bowl of Coco Pops! Maintaining your results all boils down to your calorie intake, as long as the number of calories going in equals the energy expended, you will see little to no change in your new body.
Whilst the importance of exercise is often stressed, it is equally important that the body receives the rest it needs to reboot and repair itself. Sufficient sleep is incredibly important, as insufficient sleep has been linked to the decline in both mental and physical health, as well as impacting the hormones that control hunger and cravings. This means that ensuring you get an adequate amount of sleep each night will go a long way in making or breaking your hard work in maintaining your summer physique. However, sleep isn’t the only way to rest the body, centring yourself through meditation, yoga or stretching before bed or early morning is also a very effective form of resting and winding down the body.
To maintain your SculpSure physique through the summer, consistency is key. As the summertime is typically a holiday period spent catching up with and family friends, your health, diet and exercise goals can sometimes be put on the back burner. However you shouldn’t be too hard on yourself if you miss a gym session here and there or indulge in a cheat meal on the weekend. It’s important to keep yourself accountable but the unavoidable slip isn’t going to ruin you results. Get back on track after a setback and avoid the “I’ll start on Monday” attitude.
