Fash + Fit

It was a bit of a risk to combine two different industries and expect a good result. 

Fashion – the word associated with runways, glamour, style trends. 

Fitness – Health, gym, marathons.

They are different so how can I really pitch them to be together? I can explain:

Attitude

Coming back to my previous topic about motivation – who are you training for? For yourself? To impress someone else? If you set up the right and healthy attitude, you train to look good for yourself. You want to look healthy, fit, skinnier or toned – all depends on your personal goals. Now, let’s take Fashion. If you are interested in Fashion, you probably have or aim to have a good sense of style and after important Fashion trends. You pay an extra attention to what you wear when you come out. You are getting ready before an important business meeting. What do you need Fashion for? Same thing again – for yourself? Impress someone at one event? Wear someone glamourous for horse races at Randwick? 

You start with the right attitude. You understand that things you build in life starts from you. If you have ever had an experience to move to another continent when you are a teenager that doesn’t know what she wants, you might come to realisation that you have to build self base before you can build something else in life. I cannot build my life looking at someone’s one – I need to look at what I do. I cannot get impressed by someone’s achievements only – I need to set up something for myself each month to feel I am moving. 

Attitude by @Angela_alina

When you go to the gym, you may notice more and more people are “dressing up” to the gym. Not literally. But trying to wear right sports gear, good active lifestyle brands, etc. Many fitness blogs suggest to wear “cool” gym wear to boost motivation to exercise more. I can definitely see the link between those two. You start with the attitude. You want to see yourself successful, fit, healthy and stylish. It is not a secret that you might be toned and skinny and look quite sexy but if you wear a dress that look like a bag for potatoes on you, your toned body disappears. And, of course, you can buy the most expensive suit from the best Italian designer – it probably looked so gorgeous on the runway – but it looks ugly on you because your body is poisoned with junk food, lack of movement and first signs of ageing.  I like to see and promote more on my page fashion in fitness.

It is not only wear something trendy at the gym but wear Fashion and Fitness within you..

Do you know how to measure your workout results?

Normally, you need 6-8 weeks to see the outcome of your trainings and your progression within your goal (obviously, we all different so 6-8 can vary). Mine is around this time.

What about instant result? Do you know how many calories you have just burned? Was it that level of intensity you were looking for? 


Easy rules but worth to remind:

* You want to loose weight, you gotta burn more than you eat
* You want to maintain your current weight, just exercise approx. same as you burn and don’t eat crap
* You want to build muscle weight, push on strength trainings rather than running or cardio

38X Fitness Training in my new EDGII Leggings is just 🔥🔥🔥

It is easy to get confused how much you have eaten just now (i.e. “hidden calories”). Therefore, it is important to have some indication of the workout intensity. Heart radars – yes!

One more awesome discovery.. Edgii Collections, @edgii.team@edgii_collections a growing luxury designer’s brand based in Sydney. When we discovered each other, well, it was a definite collaboration.

The highlight of their collection is the slim-technology leggings, which I can wear in my every-day training plan to lose weight and tone my body shapes (two in one!). The product features caffeine and rose hip oil micro-capsules, and these components help accelerate calories and fat burn. 
Moreover, during/after exercise, the leggings can also compress your legs and stimulate thermal activities which will maximize the effectiveness of your fitness routine. 
What is my favourite part about it is the fact that the small potato chips graphics at the bottom of the leggings changes colour from yellow to white when you sweat (an indication that some calories have been burnt, which is why the leggings are great for the gym).

Tip #1 – Before you start workout

Setting up the goals upfront – this is something that will help you keep moving forward. 
The clearer and realistic you are, the better result you achieve, and better you feel. 

When you walk in to the gym or start your training, you need to understand what you are doing it for. What you want to achieve.

The most often goals that personal trainers hear from their clients are weight loss, body shape, toned body, become healthy, etc.

It is all realistic and achievable, however, there is more clarity needed. Let’s say, you want to lose weight. Great! – how much to do you want to lose? Well, maybe, like 5-10 kg. Ok, how can you measure it? What you mean?

All about setting S.M.A.R.T. goals up

This is where people who start their gym adventures without well-qualified personal trainer or proper supervision normally WALK AWAY and GIVE UP because they don’t see the results or even hurt themselves.

You want to lose weight. There is a check list for you:

#1 What’s your current weight? Make sure you scale in the morning before your breakfast or even liquid for the most accurate results. Check that the scales are working properly

#2 What’s your height? Ideally, your weight should be calculated as Height – 110 = Body weight for healthy functioning (+- 10)

#4 Understand your intensity. The more extra weight you have, the faster you will lose it at the beginning. You need to plan your exercise timetable every week.

#3 Create a nutrition proportion. This is where I can help you. Our bodies need three main macro nutrition elements such as Carbohydrates, Fat and Protein. The best proportion will be more protein lesser carbs and can be circulated around P.: 40%; F.: 30%; C.: 30%. Read my article here for Carb Cycle that can assist with nutrition proportion. As said ask me how to create a nutrition proportion or send me your body measurements and profile details and I can have a look at it.

There are many more factors involved to build successful pathway to achieve your goal(s), however, starting point should be setting up S.M.A.R.T. goals before even touching any piece of gym equipment
