Brush up on Body Alignment With These 6 Tips!

By | Core, Feet, Glutes, Hip, online personal training

Sometimes, it’s easy to forget why we exercise. Of course, you know it’s good for you, and obviously there are plenty of physiological and psychological benefits to boot. But one thing that is often forgotten about is the most basic of all- exercise helps us to move! It moves your blood, greases up those creaky joints, circulates our breath, and ultimately keeps us active and mobile as we age. Whilst all physical activity is beneficial, there are better ways to move. Understanding and maintaining the correct body alignment can also build our focus and awareness, and helps us to stay calm and grounded throughout the day!

What Is the Correct Body Alignment?

From the moment we are born we learn how to move. First, we sit up. Then crawl, and once we’re up and on our feet it’s almost impossible to stop us again. As a child, your body is naturally aligned and your bones more flexible. BUT, as we age every injury, niggling pain and misstep causes us to overcorrect, and can actually move us further and further away from a normal, natural posture.

Have you ever been to a specialist citing back pain, to have them tell you it’s coming from your legs? Maybe your hip goes out every now and again, your knees give you grief, or an old sporting injury is limiting what you can do. Realigning your body, and reminding it that there is a way to move naturally, can take away all of those aches and pains, and help you reach your other health and wellness goals, faster!

You Can Talk the Talk, but Can You Walk the Walk?

Reforming and correcting your body alignment is a process. It starts by first admitting that there are ‘better’ ways for your body to move. Once you have discovered this, it’s a matter of showing (training) your body how to move in a pain-free and more beneficial way. The human body is incredible and adaptable, once you show it a better path it will gravitate towards it until it becomes a normal part of your physical self.

You can start by asking yourself this- do I walk properly? It may seem ridiculous, you’ve been walking since you could stand on two feet, how could it possibly be wrong? Again- you have been walking your whole life, but an imbalance can lead to compromise, and before you know it the simple act of walking can be taking you further from the correct body alignment. Check out this article from our friends at Baseline Health for more.

Needless to say, getting the basics right can make a huge difference to your joints and mobility. It can also help you to step up your training, improve your results and reach your fitness goals faster.

6 Simple Ways to Realign Your Body

Retraining your body into the correct shapes doesn’t have to be dull. There are plenty of ways to improve your body alignment while exercising, giving you the benefits of both. So, other than walking, let’s take a look at some simple ways to improve and correct your alignment:

1. Warm-up and Warm down

Most of us know the importance of warming up. It’s crucial to any form of exercise and can keep you moving longer. However, the warm down is just as important and is often disregarded at the end of a workout. The slow cooling down after exercise can help to regulate blood flow, but more importantly, it reduces muscle tension which may pull you out of the correct body alignment.

2. Build a Strong Foundation (core)

Your core is the powerhouse of the body. It relates to your entire midsection, from your glutes to your hips, abs to the lower back. Without a strong foundation (core) to move from, your body is more likely to overcompensate with a particular muscle group. This can lead to a tilted pelvis, tight hamstrings, poor upper body posture and more. So, train your core muscle groups, and especially your booty, to help realign your posture.

3. Wear the Right Shoes

Good posture and alignment begin with your feet. Not only are they our contact point with the ground, but they can also impact every other joint or muscle in the body. Creating and maintaining a healthy posture, therefore, begins with the feet and ankles. Properly fitted shoes lay a solid foundation for your posture and the alignment of the spine. They can also reduce ankle, knee and hip pain, and align your body for exercise.

4. Yoga

One of the best ways to improve your body alignment, whilst also building your mental awareness and resilience is yoga. It can help to improve your flexibility, train muscle groups and strength without force, and improve on your core strength and stability- all of which are crucial to realigning your body. Yoga and other meditative practices can also help you to build your awareness and pay attention to your body. This mind/body connection can help you to identify when and where your pains are from and take corrective actions in the moment.

5. Go Slow

Realigning your posture isn’t something that will happen overnight. Like all good things, it will take time. After all, you’re trying to re-train years of bad habits or compromises.

Similar to yoga, other practices that focus on awareness, and the slow movement of muscles and joints can also be beneficial. Low impact activities like Tai Chi can help you to improve your balance points and focus. They can also help to build strength and stability in your core, and realign your spine.

6. Train With a Qualified Personal Trainer

Recently, research has proven that training with a qualified personal trainer will improve your health and fitness results. However, the benefits go much deeper than this, as a qualified personal trainer:

  • Can teach and/or correct your form and posture while exercising
  • Will explain which muscles are active and which are at rest in a certain movement. This can help to build your mind/muscle connections, and determine if you are compensating with the incorrect muscle group.
  • Can help you to implement small changes each week, which will lead to drastic corrections of your body alignment and posture over time.

At Turnfit, our team of qualified personal trainers have the knowledge and expertise to help correct your posture and realign your body. In normal circumstances, our team is on hand to show you in person how to implement the small postural changes required. However we have also developed our own health and wellness app to help improve your alignment from the comfort of your home, and with regular video coaching calls, we can help you to correct your form before it becomes a bad habit.

Research Confirmed: Using Personal Trainer is Most Effective

By | HIIT Workout, Meditation, mental health, Mindset, Nutrition, online personal training, Personal Training Vancouver

We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded with fad diets, pills, quick fixes and new trends. Not only are these poorly researched and overhyped, the vast majority never manage to consider that we are all different. Every one of us has unique needs, goals and understandings of our health and fitness. This means that to even have the hope of achieving these goals we’re going to need real, individual help. Now, research has confirmed that using a real, qualified personal trainer is the fastest and most effective way to get there!

The Difference Is Personal

Your attention- and by default your time, energy and money- is the biggest commodity available today. With it, you can be persuaded into just about anything, and the ‘phones’ that we are all addicted to are designed to do exactly that. For the sake of this article, however, we’ll focus on our specialty- health and wellness. 

When it comes to our health, it can be hard to see the benefits of spending your time and money to improve it, as these things are difficult to measure (at least int he short term). Neurochemically, it is much easier for us to go for the activity which releases high amounts of dopamine, such as video gaming or Facebook scrolling than it is to be outside and go for a run. 

If/when you finally get so bored of those activities that you actually make the move to do something, the first port of call for most people is the “free” stuff. YouTube videos, Instagram trainers, whatever the first result on google for “free workout program” happens to be.

The issue with this is two-fold:

woman working out with resistance band1. In 99% of the cases, you’re either receiving advice from someone who is completely unqualified, or it’s a one-size-fits-all solution. For some people, that isn’t a problem. They’re happy to ‘dip a toe’ into the workout world, and see if it’s for them. However, using unqualified advice can cause you to develop poor habits, increase your rate of injury, and slow your rates of recovery. Doctor’s train for years to be able to prescribe you medicine, and so do personal trainers! It just happens our medicine comes as a lifestyle change, not a quick fix.

In addition, the concept of ‘dipping a toe’ is usually the exact same mental behaviour that will see you give up after a few days. Setting up new habits and fitness regimes is not an easy task, and it’s made even by trying to do it alone. Most people don’t even make it two weeks, which we see with every new year’s resolution. It’s the same as the ‘Monday effect,’ where motivations are high at the start of the week and taper off by Wednesday.

2. With this minimalised and individual training mindset, most people are never going to see a result. Optimising your health and fitness is as much a mental game as it is physical, and it is not a short term thing. There are a plethora of amazing free resources available if you know where to look, but staying motivated, and accountable is HARD WORK.

The key to making real, lasting changes in your life, particularly where your health and fitness is involved, is in the ‘little’ wins. Small improvements each week not only lead to drastic physical changes, but they can also help to improve your mindset, motivation, outlook, energy, and attitude towards your health and wellness. 

Unless you’re incredibly disciplined, the only way to continue to see these ‘wins’ is in constantly redesigning your health and fitness regime to suit your personal needs and circumstances- something that the ‘free’ stuff doesn’t account for. 

Science Confirms Personal Trainers Are the Key to Results

Before we get too far, we want to temper this research a bit. First, it’s important to understand that this research is based on real, qualified personal trainers and training.  Second, in understanding the results, we’ll also look at why personal trainers are more effective, compared to training by yourself. Contrary to popular belief- it is NOT just because you have a workout buddy. So without further ado, let’s look at some of the numbers:

1. Mclaran et al (2003) showed that using a personal trainer can actually change your opinion of, and attitude towards, health and wellness. This is big, as it shows that personal training isn’t just about the fitness, it also incorporates and improves mental states of wellbeing and physical activity. Based on a 10-week study, the research took into account the participant’s current levels of fitness and categorized them accordingly.

At the end of the 10-week personal training program, a huge 60% had moved up at least one category stage, and an additional 13% two stages. It is interesting to note that these participants (73%) initially started in the second group (contemplation) before progressing higher.

“For the days that they met together, the client and trainer had targeted discussions on problem-solving techniques such as determining the Benefits of Physical Activity, Barriers/Obstacles, Support System Recruitment, Goal Setting and Relapse Prevention in addition to providing specific suggestions for the other exercise days during the week.”

This study concluded that:

  • One-on-one personal training is an effective method for changing attitudes towards physical activity, and thereby increases the amount of physical activity undertaken.
  • Without tailored workout regimes and accountability, the exercise outcomes/progressions were limited.
  • Those who have considered a health/fitness regime but may not have taken the steps to action it stand to get some of the most positive results.

2. A more recent study looked at personal training over self-directed training, whereby researchers used the lean body mass of participants as a measure to determine whether using a qualified personal trainer was advantageous. With significantly higher improvements in the strength and other variables, the study concluded that:

“for the first time in a fitness club setting, members whose training is directed by well qualified personal trainers administering evidence-based training regimens achieve significantly greater improvements in LBM and other dimensions of fitness than members who direct their own training.”

3. Whilst not everyone is training for strength, personal trainers have proven to be effective in this arena as well. Maloof et al and Mazetti et al (2000) showed in two separate studies that having a personal trainer led to ‘significant improvements in strength gains’ in a group setting when compared to a group without a trainer.

What About Online Personal Training?

Whilst these are just some examples of research, the results show that personal trainers do indeed improve and accelerate your results. So what about online personal training?

Conveniently, studies have also been conducted to show the validity, use and effectiveness of personal training from home.

  1. Sykes et al (2007) compared personal training at home and in the gym. The study found that both were as effective as each other when it comes to weight loss, motivation, cardiovascular endurance and discipline.
  2. Similarly, Castro and King (2002) found that the same coaching/fitness training lost no benefits when administered over the phone. It concluded that “home-based, telephone-supervised programs were as effective as a group- or facility-based programs in terms of increased functional capacity and adherence.”
  3. A third study by Kennedy-Armbruster et al also concluded that personal training can reduce overall sedentary (sitting) time by more than 50%, whilst also improving cardiovascular fitness (VO2). This is particularly important right now as many of us are stuck indoors and trying to adjust to a new way of living! 

How Do I Find a Personal Trainer?

Personal trainers spend years achieving their qualifications and honing their skills. In an ordinary year, your local gym or a trusted referral from a friend is usually all that you need to accelerate your training. Now, however, it has become much more difficult to sift through as our attention moves more fully online. Thanks to smartphones you can now access some of the best personal trainers in the country, on-demand, for a fraction of the price. 

With the Turnfit app, you literally have a personal trainer in your pocket, with real-time support, regular updates, fitness tracking and video coaching, we have designed a range of packages to suit your needs. 

For those who are more serious about their training, or have recently lost their trainers due to COVID19, we also have an elite training package. This is for clients who require more focused and personalized training regiments. With regular video coaching calls and completely customised training and nutrition plans, the elite package also includes health and wellness coaching, covering mindfulness and meditation, goal setting and more. 

We also offer FREE health and wellness assessments, and your first month of training is on us. With all of the research pointing to the benefits of personal training and zero cost to get started, you could be a few small steps away from a healthier, happier you. Of course, as personal trainers, we can customise and individualise any plan or workout regime to make sure you are achieving your goals.

The best online personal training programs have real personal trainers

The Best Online Personal Training Programs Are Run by Real People

By | mental health, online personal training, Stress

We are all individual and unique humans, and our training, motivation, and exercise requirements change on a regular basis. Whilst the internet may be full of free gym workouts and ‘health’ experts, when it comes to health and fitness, there is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Rather, the best online personal training programs are the ones that give you exactly what they claim- personal training- designed and actively managed by real people, to keep you moving, and your personal health, results, and wellbeing at the forefront. 

Making the Move- How to Choose Your Online Training Companion

The world has changed, and in the short term, it doesn’t look like it will be changing back. For a lot of us, that means interruptions to our routines, our work, and potentially our overall health and wellness. We’ve seen that reversibility can set in quicker than many of us would like to admit (less than two weeks in some cases!), but this interruption doesn’t have to be a negative thing! 

In fact, it can serve to be supremely motivating, and for most of us, it means more time on our hands and fewer excuses. This is the perfect catalyst to help you become more comfortable training at home. Making the move to online training regimes can actually improve your results, not just maintain them.

In our experience, the best online personal training programs are actively managed by real people. Real, qualified people. Not only should this be validated with reviews and testimonials, but to be amongst the best online personal training, there has to be a real, tangible focus on you

Turnfit Personal Trainers win the Vancouver top choice award 2019What to Look For

Ultimately, you want a program/trainer that will define and tailor to your needs. This is not only to ensure you remain injury free; but also to create a support network to keep you motivated. As such, we believe it’s important to obtain:

  • Real, qualified advice, for both exercise, recovery, and nutrition. That means real trainers, not just the next insta-famous offering.
  • Personalised programming and scheduling, so that you can start or maintain your health and wellness program, from the comfort of home
  • Regular updates and new workouts to keep your body guessing
  • Actual interaction with your trainers. This is key in keeping you accountable, and in reach of your health and fitness goals
  • Programs, information, and courses that encompass and focus on everything it means to be healthy- be it resistance training, cardio, yoga, nutrition, the immune system, correct posture, mindfulness, meditation, etc…
  • A supportive community
  • A real understanding and betterment of your mental health and awareness, and how this can impact and affect your online personal training programs. 
The Turnfit app makes it easy to track your online personal training program

The Turnfit Personal Training app gives you everything you need to reach your goals

Real Trainers = Real Results

The difference between a faceless online workout program, and an online personal trainer, is two-fold. First and foremost, utilising a real trainer over an internet fad ensures you are receiving the correct information, advice, and programs to suit your needs, not the needs of the thousands. Second, just because your trainer is online doesn’t make it any less personal.

At Turnfit, we’ve been successfully running online personal training courses for years. We’ve also been able to hone in on the things that make physical personal training great and transition them more fully into our online platform. In doing so, we are giving you access to the best online personal training programs and trainers, with real professionals, and the same quality, focus, and standards you’ve come to expect from Vancouver’s top personal trainers.

At Turnfit, We Care About YOU

At Turnfit, we are endlessly grateful and blessed to be in a position to continue serving our clients, and our community.

We also want to ensure that you can continue to reach your goals, without breaking the bank.

With this in mind, we have completely redesigned our online personal training services and programs to give you access to better resources, for less! 

We are also putting our time and energy into maintaining the ‘personal’ in personal training. Through the Turnfit app, you can now access/schedule regular calls, personalized programming, free resources, boot camps, and regular face-to-face interactions.  To keep you in shape, we are also proud to offer a number of new personal training packages.

In this Full body workout you will burn fat, increase your metabolism and feel amazing after. I tracked my energy expenditure and I burnt almost 500 calories in 45 minutes. If you want to tighten and tone your muscles you need to work on resistance training. We have many different options for online training if you need more help. Train anywhere, any time. https://turnfit.ca/online-training/

This is one of the cheapest resistance training programs as all you need is this video and the bands. We will be sharing more videos using these bands so that you can shed fat and tone up from anywhere you have these cables.

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!
