Common Weight Loss Strategies Used in Personal Training at Physiques Gym

It’s no secret that losing weight can be a hard and frustrating process; these are some common weight loss strategies and how to finally be successful. Changing our eating habits and increasing our physical activity might not be enough to achieve our desired weight loss goals. This is where the personal trainers at Physiques Gym can help.

Our personal trainers are experts in designing fitness programs tailored to our clients’ specific needs and goals. One of the main goals of personal training is to help people lose weight in an efficient and healthy way. In this blog post, we’ll discuss some common weight loss strategies we use in our personal training programs and how they can help you achieve your weight loss goals.

Cardiovascular exercises

Cardiovascular (cardio) exercises are activities that increase your heart rate and breathing rate, such as running, cycling, or swimming. Cardio exercises burn calories quickly, making them an effective strategy for weight loss.

Physiques Gym personal trainers will incorporate cardio exercises into our clients’ fitness programs to help them burn fat and lose weight, as it is needed.

The American Heart Association recommends getting at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise per week, or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic exercise per week, to maintain good health, including weight management.

Resistance training

Resistance training, or strength training, involves using weights or resistance bands to increase muscle strength and endurance. Strength training is essential for weight loss, as it helps build lean muscle mass, which burns calories even when you are not exercising.

At Physiques Gym, we use resistance training as part of every clients’ fitness programs to help them lose weight and increase their metabolism. Once the fitness level is assessed, every client is led through a training program to build their knowledge and understanding of weight training. Our objective is to ensure that everyone learns how to properly lift weights and perform each exercise.

High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a form of cardio exercise that alternates short periods of intense activity with recovery periods. At Physiques Gym, we have created our own version of high intensity training using weight training. Our workouts are structured to include cardio and strength training to maximize impact in a short period of time.  Our training sessions are more effective at burning calories and increasing metabolism.

Nutrition coaching

Nutrition coaching is an essential aspect of weight loss. Physiques Gym personal trainers can provide nutrition coaching to our clients to help them make healthy food choices and develop healthy eating habits. Nutrition coaching may include advising clients on the appropriate portion sizes, nutrient timing, and food choices. We can also customize their clients’ meal plans to match their fitness objectives.

Mindset coaching

We understand that weight loss is not just about physical fitness but also mental fitness. Our mindset coaching helps clients develop a positive and sustainable approach to weight loss. Physiques Gym helps our clients create achievable goals, develop healthy thinking patterns, and increase motivation. Mindset coaching is essential because it helps clients develop a long-term commitment to weight loss.


Personal training at Physiques Gym can help anyone with effective weight loss. We use a combination of cardiovascular exercises, strength training, high-intensity training, and nutrition and mindset coaching to help our clients achieve their weight loss goals. However, it’s important to remember that weight loss is a continuous journey, and it requires a sustainable lifestyle change.

Physiques Gym can provide valuable guidance and support along the way, but the commitment to healthy living must come from within. If you’re looking to lose weight, contact us to create a fitness program that fits your goals and lifestyle.
