Online personal training can prevent the effects of reversibility while on lockdown

Reversibility: If You Don’t Use It, You’ll Lose It!

By | Community Of Experts, Online boot camps, online personal training

We all know that rest is important for recovery. But too much rest can wipe out your progress much quicker than it took to make those gains. Known as reversibility, this principle of health and fitness can see you lose your progress after only a couple of weeks at home. With lockdowns looking to extend, it’s not only important to understand how your body can atrophy, but it’s also imperative to kick yourself back into a routine to maintain or improve on your health and wellness goals! 

It’s Ok to Take a Break- but How Long Is Too Long?

The world-changing around our ears, and it is completely OK to take a break. It will take a while before we all adjust to our new (hopefully short term) reality. As trainers, we know that motivation ebbs and flows under normal circumstances, but letting ourselves slip into bad habits during times like these is much easier than creating new and positive ones.

Unfortunately when it comes to health and fitness, taking a break for too long can be detrimental. Not only is it harder to get back into shape/routine, but the principle of reversibility- also called ‘detraining’- shows that it only takes around two weeks before you’ll begin to notice your progress slow, and all that hard work begins to be wasted.

The Principle of Reversibility- Don’t Rewind Your Results!

When we train or exercise, our body repairs and builds adaptations to combat these stressors. These adaptations are what we often refer to as our ‘fitness,’ and as you’re probably aware when you exercise consistently your ability to exercise longer or train harder improves.

Although it can take months to improve your flexibility, fitness, strength, etc… it only takes a matter of weeks to begin to lose your progress and can see you return to your pre-training levels. Studies have shown that within two weeks you can lose up to 20% of your aerobic fitness. You have probably noticed this previously when going on holiday or taking time off. Sure the cocktails and beach time are great, but it takes a lot longer to work them off when you get back!

This is why we maintain the importance of on-going and consistent exercise, as a lifestyle change, not just a short term goal. Not to mention that losing your progress, or at least watching it deteriorate over time, can lead to more negative states of mind. 

Although we can quickly lose our strength and fitness because of reversibility, the sooner we get back into a routine, the less amount of time it takes to get back to where we were. Some research suggests that it takes twice as long as the amount of time you took off (for example, 4 weeks to cover a 2-week break) and obviously our current circumstances may limit the amount/type of training we can perform. However, it has also been suggested that training just 3 times per week is enough to stop reversibility setting in, and help you maintain your health and fitness goals. 

Traditional Gyms Are Closing Down

With our current inability to access physical training locations, the likelihood of ‘going backward’ in our health and wellness progress is on the increase. Not to mention the fall out from COVID-19 has seen many traditional gyms and training spaces close down. Recently, Steve Nash’s fitness world closed its doors on 24 locations and almost 100,000 members across B.C. 

Similarly, Semperviva Yoga has just announced they’re permanently closing their doors after 25 years servicing the Vancouver market. Thankfully, we have been developing our online personal training resources for years and can help you to maintain, or improve on your health and fitness goals.

Start Training From Home With Turnfit!

First things first, if you’ve been taking a break from exercising over the past few weeks, we want to stress the importance of not overdoing it. Even though most people will be training at home, and this typically means less resistance training, it’s very easy to jump straight back in and injure yourself. Remember, reversibility means that you probably won’t have the same strength and endurance that you did, even just a month ago. So, for starters, take it easy and work your way back up to your old levels!

Second, thanks to Coach David’s background in computer systems and online business development, Turnfit has already been offering online personal training for a number of years.

Third, our programs and workout routines are designed specifically to be done at home. That means you don’t need any special equipment to complete them, and thanks to our dedicated coaches, you don’t need any experience either!

Our online solutions offer everything that physical personal training can and includes the use of/access to the Turnfit personal training app. This not only helps you to stay on track but also allows Turnfit to deliver a number of other services, online:

  • Consultations and physical assessments
  • Video coaching calls
  • Nutrition Macro set up and coaching 
  • 7 days/week programming (Workouts, Meditations, Diet, Cardio, the works…)
  • Postural Assessments
  • 24-hour app messaging support

Turnfit personal trainers are passionate about your results

Our online personal training courses are already a fraction of the price of training in person. However, in an effort to help people stay in shape during these unprecedented times, we’re also helping you to access a lot of our resources, for free.

Right now we’re offering free fitness assessments, and you can also access our FREE boot camps and other classes by joining us, and our incredibly supportive health and wellness community, on Facebook!

If you’re ready to step things up we’re also offering huge discounts for our online personal training courses, as well as pay-per-use 1 on 1 online personal training from our award-winning coaches. 

For parents, we understand that a lot of kids have been forced out of school and sport- two vital components of a healthy and active lifestyle. To help with this, we have also begun running personal training sessions for younger generations, to make sure they stay active and help to burn off excess energy that they would have otherwise spent. 

For more information about these sessions, or any other services we offer, please reach out and connect!

Turnfit Personal Trainers are offering FREE online boot camps

Getting Cabin Fever? Try Our FREE Online Boot camps!

By | mental health, Mindset, Online boot camps, Personal Training Vancouver

Vancouver is still locked down, and by now most people have exhausted their Netflix screen time. With social isolation now in full effect, it has never been more important to focus on your mental and physical wellbeing. To help everyone get through these tough times, Turnfit personal trainers are offering free online boot camps and mindful practice, as well as a range of free information to keep you updated on everything from mortgages to employment.

Mental Health As a State of Mind

We get it. Staying indoors, somewhat indefinitely, is enough to send most people a little crazy. 2020 is going to be different for all of us, and until we have some clearer direction, we all have to assume that the next few months are going to be much the same. 

BUT. This time at home, this forced time away from the office and our normal routines can also be an opportunity. Not only that, but it is also imperative that we all unite and create new ways to interact and communicate with each other. After all, we are social beings. 

Simple Ways to Captivate Your Mind

For too long, we have relied on distractions like Netflix and Instagram to keep our minds occupied. Whilst those things are still OK to utilize, overdoing it also runs the risk of going a little bit insane. So instead, we’d rather focus on some of the alternatives to keep your mind stimulated:

  • Play
    This can be in any shape or form, but being stuck indoors doesn’t mean you have to cut out all the fun. To maintain your mental health though this should be time away from screens. Boardgames, puzzles, blanket forts, painting, learning instruments, you name it, you now literally have
    all the time in the world to do the things you always ‘wished’ you could do.

 

  • Read.
    We, as a species, literally have all of the information ever created at our fingertips. Anything you want to learn, or to be, has been written down, and most of the good stuff is in books! If you’ve never been a ‘reader,’ now is the time. Not just to maintain this skill, but to learn something new! Keeping your mind stimulated with healthy skills will go a long way to preserving your sanity.

 

  • Mindfulness and meditation.
    Sure, it might feel like you’re doing a lot of sitting around and thinking. But doing it with
    intention, following your breath, calming the mind, these are all components of a healthy mental state. Build and use these skills now to help you to destress and focus your energy where you need it most. Join our socials for free online personal training sessions, including mindful practice and meditation.

 

  • Sleep well.
    This one is imperative to maintaining a healthy state of mind, and sadly with all the screens in our faces, most of us do not get healthy sleep. When we’re out of a normal routine it can become even more difficult to do so. Check out
    this article to learn more.

 

  • Learn to cook (or cook new things!)
    Lockdowns might mean less access to ingredients, or maybe they’ve just given you the time to try new things. Look up some new recipes, get outside your routine, and
    enjoy spending time with the other people in your house. Adding/maintaining micronutrients to your diet will also help you to build and maintain your immune system.

Learning to cook can be a great way to spend time at home!

Physical Activity Is the Key to Sanity

Amongst all the chatter and clutter, there are a few things we need to keep in mind. Even though most of us spend our days at work, there are still certain elements of physical activity attached to that. Whether it’s walking to/from work, a quick gym session afterward, even walking around the office, we’re not entirely sedentary. 

While these lockdowns don’t mean we have to be inside, generally speaking, we’re probably doing a lot more laying about than we usually would. Physical activity is key in this scenario, not just to boost your immune system, but to keep your mind and body in balance.

At Turnfit, we’re offering FREE online boot camps from a range of coaches to help you stay in shape, and stay sane. You do NOT need any gear, workout equipment or prior knowledge to participate. Add to that we have our full suite of online personal training programs available to you as well, which can be used on-demand, with regular updates and new information/plans added all the time. 

We also have our free community page, which we encourage you to follow to access our free online boot camps and classes, and we’re bringing in a whole team of professionals looking to share their time and experiences with you. If you don’t use social media or are trying to steer clear of it at this time, you can also join via our website (please ignore the pricing).
