Where does the fat go when you lose it?

Blow your fat away: Exercise guru says we literally exhale our fat when we workout

Where does the fat go when you lose it?

It’s a question everyone asks when they start out on a new diet or exercise regime — where does the fat go when you lose it?

There are several persistent explanations floating around, said Jeff Woods, a long-time personal trainer and fitness lifestyle commentator on the Canadian Learning Channel.
Some believe the fat converts to muscle — a theory that is “blatantly wrong,” Woods said.

Others think fat is turned into heat energy and literally burns off. “Well, that sort of happens,” Wood acknowledged.

Before fat can be reduced, a person must elevate his or her body temperature and burn calories, he clarified.

As for the idea that fat cells metabolize — “Well, that’s just not true,” he said.

How to Get Through Hump Day
How to get through hump day!

Let’s face it, Wednesday is pretty tough to take some weeks. One way to combat the dread that comes with getting up on any given “Hump Day” is to incorporate something positive into your day…something to look forward to…something just for you and your body.

Join us for a Wednesday night drop-In Burlington Body Camp workout ($15). Not only will you leave feeling invigorated, you’ll have burned upwards of 1000 calories in one hour (and the calories keep on burning even after your workout)!

All you need to do is bring the motivation, a yoga mat and two 3-10 pound weights…and we’ll provide you with a: fast-paced, head-to-toe, body-weight, high-intensity, interval training session that will scorch calories.

Register here for 7pm or 8pm.

Open to men and women. We hope to see you tonight!

 

Want fast results? Add this exercise to your routine.

Make jump squats a part of your exercise sessions. Why? You’ll get results…fast! As well, they benefit your entire body (including your posterior chain and core) and they are an excellent boost to your overall fitness.

How to do jump squats

Step one: With your knees shoulder width apart, bend your knees slightly, keeping your back straight. Squat down.

Step two: Immediately jump upwards off the ground. As your feet leave the floor reach upward, straight out in front, or with your hands on your hips, keeping your back straight and facing forward.

Step three: Land back in the position you started in. Bend your knees slightly and immediately repeat the second step.

Tabata Jump Squat Circuit (Advanced)

Do as many jump squats as you can for 20 seconds and rest for 10 seconds. Repeat eight times. To make this exercise more challenging, hold a pair of dumbbells.

At HomeBodyFit, we’re fans of incorporating jump squats into nearly every personal and couples training session. They are excellent for conditioning as well as being an effective cardiovascular exercise. Learn more about our services here!

Pack more work into tonight’s workout than most people do in a week

Did you know that an intense 4-minute high intensity exercise interval (e.g. burpees, mountain climbers, push-ups, jump lunges, etc.) is just as effective – if not more effective – at increasing aerobic fitness and improving muscular endurance than 30-minutes on the treadmill? 

At Burlington Body Camp, we take fitness to the next level! For each workout, we string together a series of these body-weight interval training circuits. Come try us out tonight for only $15 and you’ll likely workout harder than more people do in a week!
