Making weight loss resolutions is easy – keeping up the motivation to make a real change can be a challenge. With the right tools and a fail-proof plan, you’ll look and feel your absolute best by summer!
The year 2020 required us to work out at home more, and for many, the habit stuck. Tools like fitness bands, free weights and jump ropes are easy to find and use.
Fitness apps can also be of help. One of the most popular to achieve your exercise goals: The Peloton app. If you have the Peloton Bike, Bike+, Tread or Tread+, you can access a host of live and on-demand classes on the built-in screen. If you don’t have the exercise equipment, you can still download the Peloton app and access the same classes, taught by world-class instructors who motivate in a host of classes including strength, yoga, meditation, cardio, running, walking and tread or bike bootcamps.
With 24/7 unlimited access to this full array of classes, plus community support from Peloton friends on the Leaderboard, users find the experience easy to integrate into their busy lives and create routines.
There are lots of other fitness apps available that will help you to crush your weight loss goals this year, so find the one that works for you.
Pro tip: Eliminate distractions. One of the biggest roadblocks to getting your workout in is distractions that cut your session short. Schedule your workout on your calendar, tell your family members that you’re busy and pause notifications on your phone to focus on the task at hand.
Healthy food choices also play a key role and are easier than you may realize. Making simple swaps that you can easily maintain is an easy change to make. One example is to replace whites with browns – such as in rice or bread – as grains contain more fiber, making us feel full faster and stay full longer. White carbs turn into sugar quickly, leading to bursts of energy, and a sudden crash.
Another easy habit to implement is to drink 16 ounces of water when you wake up, even before your morning coffee or tea. If you’re dehydrated, you may think you’re hungry.
Pro tip: Always grab a healthy snack before doing things like going grocery shopping, so you won’t make bad choices because you’re hungry. Enjoy an apple or banana before going to a gathering – even if it’s virtual – so you don’t overdo it!
If you’re struggling with a plateau, even though you’re committed to a workout and healthy eating plan, technology can help in the form of highly effective, non-invasive body sculpting treatments. In conjunction with a healthy lifestyle, there may be multiple solutions to attain the body you’re dreaming of including:
Emsculpt: To enhance muscle tone in the glutes and abs, high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology stimulates muscle contractions – essentially the same effect of 20,000 crunches or squats! The result of 4-6 30-minute treatments is a sculpted appearance that celebrities like Rob Gronkowski, Kim Kardashian and Drew Barrymore have used and loved. Dr. Levine is also the first in the country to offer the advanced version of this technology, – Emsculpt NEO – a three-in-one process that tones muscles, permanently reduces fat and tightens skin.
*WarmSculpting: This 25-minute treatment can permanently reduce fat in the addressed area by 23%. Using specific wavelengths to target and eliminate fat cells, this is a safe FDA-cleared treatment (formerly known as Sculpsure).
*CoolSculpting: Ideal to treat areas of “squeezable fat,” this FDA-cleared procedure uses crystallization of fat cells under the skin’s surface. Reducing stubborn body fat by up to 23%, the dead cells are naturally and permanently removed by your body’s lymphatic system and is perfect for flanks, thighs, double chin, upper arms and your tummy. We have two machines on site so you can treat two areas at the same time!
*Ultherapy: This treatment uses ultrasound technology to tighten skin on the face, neck, décolleté, knees and elbows by addressing the deep layers of tissue and stimulating collagen production.
We invite you to make 2021 the year to reach those weight loss goals and look – and feel! – your best.
