Blog by: Suryakant Tripathi

Fitness could be spread by carrying out by event’s as well. Nowadays people are getting lazier and they don’t want to come out and exercise, although they want to be fit but they can’t make their mind for it.

Another reason for this is not getting proper time or due to insufficient accommodations. So for those kinds of people fitness events may be carried out. Although the fitness events cannot run throughout the year but it could be used as a medium of inspiration and motivation in people.

It can be used to make people aware of health and fitness. Benefits of fitness can be explained to them.
Once they are motivated from inside then no one can stop them from doing exercise and keeping themselves fit. For this fitness events can be carried out. Seminars, events, competition can be organized for the people.

People of a particular location or locality can be asked to gather at a particular place like garden or park. One trainer and some volunteers can be organized.

Under the guidance of the trainers and by taking the help of volunteers people can do exercise and follow them. Once they learn the method of doing it then later they could do it by themselves.

In the recent years we have seen an explosion of themed fitness focused events and trends that emphasize the fun part of leading an active, healthy lifestyle. The trend rose to popularity in Europe and America in the past decade, and has since expanded globally.

Today it still is the hot fitness trend in France, and its particularly appealing option for anyone with joint pain or issues that prevent them more strenuous cardio, like pavement running or regular cycling/spinning classes.

Pregnancy affords a unique window of opportunity for women to actively engage in health enhancing activities. Maternal concern for her baby increases the mother’s motivation to form better health habits during pregnancy. Physically active women are more likely to adopt other healthy lifestyle choices. Good habits established at this time can last a lifetime and provide profound benefits for the mother, baby and other family members.

Steps to become Male fitness trainer

Blog by: Suryakant Tripathi

Male Fitness Model Tip #1 – Be willing to sacrifice Strength for Looks
Nobody makes a New Year’s resolution to lose 20 pounds off of their bench press over the next year. But when you’re main focus is to get cut, sometimes you’ll lose a little bit of strength in the process. This being said, do what it takes to achieve your overall goal by putting in extra cardio and eating clean – rather than eating to add bulk. Also, forget about impressing other guys in the gym by lifting heavy when you may need to scale back some instead.

Male Fitness Model Tip #2 – Up your Anaerobic Threshold
At the risk of sounding overly-obvious, I’d like to say that you need to increase your current level of cardio in order to achieve a fitness model physique. However, you don’t just wake up one morning and decide that you’re going to go from walking 1 mile daily to running 5 miles a day; instead, you need to steadily increase your anaerobic threshold (AT). Expanding on anaerobic threshold, this refers to your body’s ability to remove lactic acid. Simply put, a higher AT level enables you to work out harder, longer, and recover quicker the next day. Interval training on the treadmill or at an outdoor track is a great way to increase your AT, while there are various other forms of hard exercise that can do the job too.

Male Fitness Model Tip #3 – Strongly consider doing Pilates
The mere mention of this tip might have you rolling your eyes while thinking about the middle-aged, minivan-driving moms who huddle up in posh gyms for Pilates class. Moving past the wimpy stereotype, Pilates is actually a pretty solid workout routine that builds lean muscle, flexibility, and endurance throughout the body. In addition to the obvious physical benefits that Pilates offers, it also relieves stress and helps increase agility. So if you’re truly looking for a new type of exercise that challenges you in unique ways, check out a class sometime. You might even meet some non-middle-aged, mini-driving chicks in the process!

Male Fitness Model Tip #4 – Gradually reduce your Caloric Intake
It goes without saying that a great way to shed a few pounds involves cutting your calories. But do keep in mind that drastically reducing your food intake is by no means a shortcut to getting shredded abs. Sure it might make sense mathematically that, by eating far fewer calories, you’ll lose far more weight. But your body’s metabolic process doesn’t work like a calculator. Instead, it will go into starvation mode when you cut up to 1,000 or more calories out of your daily eating schedule; when this happens, your body stores nearly everything that’s eaten in an effort to maintain homeostasis. Case in point, start with dropping 400-500 calories off your daily diet and go from there.

Male Fitness Model Tip #5: Drink Water….and then drink some more
Sometimes it amazes me how many athletes hit the gym regularly and constantly eat clean, yet forget one very important step in their routine: drinking water. First off, water helps you stay hydrated throughout the day, which, in turn, powers you through tough workouts. Secondly, water plays a huge role in metabolizing all of the protein you eat – or at least should be eating. So rather than opting for sugary juices or soda, be sure to keep water on hand at all times.
