Fat Loss NOT Weight Loss

Fat Loss NOT Weight Loss

fat compared to muscle

I am often tasked with helping members to lose weight and ladies will often say they wish to lose weight but not gain any muscle, probably scared that they will look like Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Stop worrying, ladies! Gaining muscle will not mean you end up as a bodybuilder, unless of course you want to. BUT it is necessary to work out with weights and build muscle in order to achieve a well-toned body and lose body fat. Notice I talk of losing body fat and not weight. Now I know that ladies in particular focus on weight but it is more important to look at body fat and dress size.
The images show models of fat and muscle do demonstrate how it is not the weight that is important. I have also included a few pictures of real people showing different body shapes and one girl who increased weight but became toned and lost body fat.

So the moral of the story is do not become focussed on the weight figure, in fact ditch the scales and let us measure body fat and you can measure dress size – together we will get you the body you desire!

janine ivensI have been a member for 7 months, my goal was to get fitter, stronger and compete at a higher level at kick-boxing. I have achieved this and secured myself a 1st Gold trophy and have completed a half marathon and 5km. My aim now is to surpass my previous goal with the help from Images- a lovely, friendly atmosphere.
