Often I am asked, what is in fact a best health coach certification and where’s the difference in the actual fitness training. Well, health training is fitness training, fitness training is unfortunately not always health training.
Unfortunately, in the health and fitness training field often an insufficient medical history is made, usually just the fast muscle or perhaps the quick weight loss in the foreground and already existing diseases or complaints are not always or even not adequately considered. Just an experienced and well-trained coach can provide real assistance. A health promoting training aims to train the individual to be cared for, taking into account the current state of health. We understand fitness training that is holistically planned and in which medical support and advice is paramount. This applies to both people that exercise training as a disease prevention, of course, but also for individuals who turn to us due to a health problem. (Back problems, burn out, cardiovascular diseases, tumors and much more).
For sports returnees from thirty five years or after a sickness related training break is just as for the sport beginner: only with medical check as well as a doctor’s approval, a training plan should be generated.
Adults should perform over 150 minutes (2½ hours) per week of moderate intensity exercise or 75 minutes (1¼ hours) per week of higher intensity exercise or equivalent combination of medium and high intensity exercise. Ideally, the activity needs to be spread over so many days of the week as you can. Each unit should work for at the very least 10 minutes continuously.
Adults should – for additional and more extensive health benefits – increase the range of theirs of motion to 300 minutes (five hours) per week of moderate intensity exercise or even 150 minutes (2½ hours) per week of higher intensity exercise or possibly a combination of exercise with them aim for higher intensity and medium.
On two or more days of the week, adults should perform moderate or perhaps high intensity muscular exercise that involves all major muscle groups
Obviously, these recommendations sound very time-consuming at first. But also movements of everyday routine, like walking fast, cycling to work, gardening, etc. are considered to be health beneficial. Little things, which includes taking the stairs rather than the escalator or the elevator (let’s face it, we all forget that over and over :)) already help to get the blood flow going thus and again the health something wonderful to do.
But, only with targeted training physical performance can be really and sustainably improved, and exactly this effect you would like to eventually achieve.
