Nutrition and water intake are fundamental pieces in our overall wellness. Perez Personal Training has certified fitness nutrition specialists skilled at designing and implementing a plan that fits your needs.
We all know that staying hydrated is imperative in order to keep our body and mind functioning at its best. Yet knowing it and doing it are two different things... Our trainers will guide you in developing tools to grow and establish healthy water-drinking habits so your body continuously thanks you throughout the day.
We also must understand that nutrition is not about dieting and, generally speaking, the science of finding balance between nutrition and exercise is simple:
- If more calories are burned than ingested, we lose weight.
- If less calories are burned than ingested, we gain weight.
- If we burn the same amount of calories that we ingest, our weight stays constant.
There are three basic food groups: Protein, carbohydrates and fats. A balanced nutritional plan includes all three basic food groups without neglecting or overdoing any of them. So, including complete lean proteins such as lean meats or fish, unsaturated fats such as avocado or extra virgin olive oil, or saturated fats, such as eggs, as long as they are cooked and portioned appropriately, and complex carbs that have a lot of fiber and a low to moderate glycemic index such as lentils, non-treated rice or broccoli is the golden key to a successful and sustainable nutritional transformation.
Eating healthy does not have to be limiting and bland. On the contrary, a nutritional plan rich in variety, full in flavor and balanced in content will positively impact your every day life and we are here to guide you and support you, so you too can make it happen. Are you ready?
Are you thinking about taking that first step towards taking charge of your own well being? Eager to build and establish healthy habits that will support you through the thick and thin of everyday life? Ready to accept the fact that regular exercise is a powerful medicine towards prevention, and against progression, of many chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and even certain types of cancer, just to name a few?
Many of us set exercising aside because life takes over: not enough hours in the day, too much on our plates, we feel mentally and physically exhausted, we loose our motivation... Making time to exercise is hard! We know we have to do it. We know we owe it to ourselves. We know we would feel so much better if we did it regularly... But it is daunting! Where to start? Come to see us and we’ll start right here, at Perez Personal Training, surrounded by coaches that have what it takes to support you and help you succeed with your fitness endeavors.
Family, work, stretched thin, stressed, little energy, lack of self care, lower self-esteem... I have been there. I remember! Exercising gave me new hope and continues to do so. Sure, I still have lots on my plate, but I now have the energy to tackle life’s challenges, the burden of knowing that I need to exercise has been lifted and I feel happier. Much happier! Exercise has changed my life so I am confident that, with our support, it can change yours as well.

You might be asking yourself, "Why should I use a personal trainer? What are the advantages and benefits of having a personal trainer? Can't I just workout on my own?" The answer is of course yes, you can work out on your own and in fact, we encourage it! However, with the help of a certified personal trainer, you can learn the proper form for each exercise in order to reduce the chance of injury compared to non-supervised exercise. Your personal trainer can also create an effective workout plan for you so that you can reach your goals and see the results you're looking for in as little of a commitment as twice a week.
We understand that meeting with a personal trainer for the first time might be a little intimidating, but we don't want to make you to feel that way. We want to help build your confidence in every aspect of life starting with walking through our doors. We are a private personal training studio and pride ourselves in creating a safe space for everyone. And we love meeting new clients!
So here's what to expect when meeting with a personal trainer for the first time:
First, we go through an intake form with you. This is so that we can learn more about you! We want to learn not only your goals, concerns, likes and dislikes when it comes to exercise, but also your health status. We want you to feel good each and every time you work out with us. We'll also take measurements and have you perform some easy physical tests (nothing fancy or hard) so that we can start you from exactly where you are. Starting from where you are is essential in making sure that you feel good after your workouts, that your workouts are effective, and that they're fun enough that you look forward to doing them! Yes, we tend to work magic like that.
