What Is Fat Loss & Toning?

We hear many people use the term “weight loss” when talking about getting in shape and starting a diet and exercise program, but in actuality, the phrase they should be using is “fat loss.” The reason most people fail at losing weight and keeping it off is due to the way they are dieting and training.
Too much cardio, wrong macronutrient ratios, and lack of correct resistance training techniques leave these people weighing less on the scale but with the same body fat percentage. This is what we in the industry call “skinny-fat,” and nobody wants to be skinny-fat.
Our Fat Loss & Toning Program focuses on hardening the muscles and reducing fat to improve body fat percentage and give the true desired look most are going for.
Why Cardio Isn’t the Answer To Fat Loss
Cardiovascular activity is the most overrated type of exercise for weight loss. Despite the fact that cardio can assist maintain your heart healthy, many people make the mistake of relying on it while they are attempting to “lose weight” (body fat).
In addition to increasing your immune system and reducing cholesterol levels, aerobic exercise (often known as cardio) has numerous other benefits.
However, too much cardio done to lose body fat can backfire because it does not burn as many calories as people believe it does and can increase your appetite.
Strength training combined with a healthy calorie deficit is essential if you want to shed fat while also maintaining muscle mass.
