Are you doing everything right? Working out 4 times a week, eating healthy, not drinking alcohol etc etc and not seeing results?

According to ICAN personal training Alderley edge, a lot of weightless obstacles have nothing to do with what you eat or how much you exercise. Instead, they involve things like nutritional imbalances, chronic inflammation, metabolic challenges, leaky gut, changes in your microbiome, environmental toxins and your genes.

“Cortisol is one of the most common hormone imbalances we come across with our clients due to their work schedules” Says lead personal trainer at ICAN Alderley Edge. Stressful thoughts activate metabolic pathways that cause weight gain and insulin resistance. Cortisol is an adrenal hormone that helps you to run faster, see further, hear better and pump fuel into your bloodstream for quick energy. It is the hormone that helps us survive in the face of true danger.  It also shuts down digestion and slows your metabolism.

“You can’t eliminate stress completely, but you can reduce it with meditation, yoga or deep relaxation along side your normal fitness regimes” Say ICAN personal training Alderley Edge.

So stress less, meditate and continue your training and healthy eating regime to see results!
