Wedding Fitness: Build a Healthy and Happy Day
The obvious first choice a bride makes when thinking about how she will look on her wedding day is her gown is of utmost importance. And of course her headpiece and veil and the jewelry and the shoes. BUT, there are many other things that “frame” this look and contribute to wedding beauty! This is an exciting time in your life filled with wedding planning appointments that might stretch even further an already tight schedule, leaving you little time for fitness. However, your wedding diet can play an important role on a healthier you and a healthier and happier wedding day!
Your wedding diet includes eating properly and exercising or looking after other physical and personal appearance details. Why is it fitness important, especially for your wedding day? You may go in for your first dress fitting, leading up to the wedding, and suddenly realize that the gown is a little tighter than it was when you first tried it on . . . or that your shoulders and arms don’t look as firm and toned as you’d like them to . . . or the definition in your back is not as prominent as it could be for the perfect look of that backless gown you’ve chosen! You panic and think, “Oh, I must go on a diet!” Dieting alone won’t create the look that you desire for yourself in that gown. You must also think of your overall fitness.
You may wish to consider the services of a personal trainer to help you get your wedding diet. According to Christopher Rao, founder and owner of the Wellness Zone in Winter Park, Florida, a 12-week session, twice a week, with a personal trainer can get you amazing results! “A trainer can do an evaluation of the client, taking girth measurements and performing a body composition analysis so the client knows where he or she stands at the beginning of the training sessions. They can also assist by planning a wedding diet and nutrition program to suit the particular weight loss needs (if any) and log all this information into a personal progress fitness log.”
Christopher goes on to say, “The client can start a log where they list the food that is eaten each day. Their personal trainer may then program a series of workouts for the client during these 12 weeks so the client can meet the ultimate weight and body fat goals established at the beginning of their time together. There may be total body work-outs each session or alternating upper and lower body work-outs. On the days that the client is not working out, he or she might be asked to do an independent cardio routine on the treadmill.”
The combination of wedding diet , nutrition, weight training and cardio activities will result in a more toned and leaner you! Your wedding fitness and looking best in your wedding gown will be one hundred percent!
And of course, personal training isn’t only for the bride! The groom and Mom and Dad may also wish to consider this program so they all look great in their wedding attire as well!
