Body Composition Coaching
Body Composition Training - Why?
Body composition training may be a term that you are less familiar with. Another term you may be more used to hearing is fat loss training. At FP we make a clear distinction with a focus on changing people’s body composition rather than just a fat loss focus. Body composition is how much of your body is made up of muscle and how much of your body is made up of fat. This is important as someone who may lose a lot of fat and muscle can end up becoming “skinny fat”. Body composition training takes into account a more holistic view on increasing muscle and reducing body fat.
At FP we know through working with clients for years and the many results that we have been able to get. That body composition training requires two main things.
1.Lifting weights where you are getting stronger over time.
2.Nutrition that considers what you’re currently trying to achieve–losing fat, gaining muscle or maintenance.
Your body composition training can be boiled down to these key areas and it is how we manipulate, plan and progress these areas that gets you long-term results.
THE FIVE PILLAR SYSTEM:
1) Understanding what a calorie is and how these breakdowns into macro nutrients of protein, fats and carbohydrates.
2) Learning proper portion control skills around measuring food and understanding the calorie value around your food options.
3) Understanding how to hit your optimal fiber intake.
To have a long term, healthy lifestyle, factors such as sleep, stress management, hydration and daily steps are extremely important. As part of our program, we provide insight and training around how to improve in these areas for better performance, improved body composition, and overall live a healthier life.
