If you’re a resident of Charlotte, North Carolina or its metro area, there’s a 31 percent statistical chance that you’re obese or heavier based on the body-mass index chart. Even if you live elsewhere in the state, there’s a good chance you’re overweight since North Carolina is the 16th heaviest in the nation and South Carolina has it beat as the 12th most obese.
Of course, BMI isn’t the beginning and end of health numbers. The chart does a poor job of accounting for different body types and muscle gain, plus weight isn’t completely connected to health. You can register as overweight on the cart but be healthy as an ox because you run a mile every morning, or you can have a normal weight despite eating nothing but junk food and lying around most of the day because of an overactive metabolism. Getting healthy isn’t just about losing weight, it’s about getting fit and staying active.
Everlasting Changes Can Make Weight Stay Away
Even if you don’t care about losing extra fat, exercise helps you stay healthy, it lets you do more, and it even makes you feel better about yourself. Everyone can benefit from being healthier, but not everyone has the motivation and the fitness and nutrition knowledge it takes to become healthy on their own. They can use some outside help, and that’s where Everlasting Changes comes in.
At Everlasting Changes, you can schedule a small-group or private training session with one of our personal trainers. With groups, you get the benefit of pushing each other to succeed and knowing you’re not alone when you struggle, while a private training session gives you some privacy in case you’re uncomfortable letting other people see you exercise or you want one-on-one attention from a professional fitness expert.
We Offer Personalized Nutrition Plans
On our website, you can download a free nutrition guide created by our resident nutritionist, Jennifer Kasmer. Reading it is a good way to get started with thinking healthy and making meal plans that will fill you up without packing in too many calories, but you can also come to Everlasting Changes to speak with Jennifer in person and create a personalized nutrition plan.
The most important thing to remember about good nutrition is that the best way to lose weight and keep it off permanently isn’t a week-long fad diet or a diet that asks you to forget about your favorite foods or an entire kind of calorie. The best way is to eat less and eat better, to make as much of your own food as you can and to avoid convenience foods that use way too much fat, salt, and sugar to get people to buy them. And with that in mind, our professional nutritionist can help you come up with a diet that fits your schedule and your preferences.
We Also Offer Personalized Exercise Plans
By getting a private training session at Everlasting Changes, you’ll get a personalized routine that matches what you’re able to do when you walk in and what goals you have in mind. You need different routines for things like losing fat, gaining muscle, and improving your endurance, and since you only have so much energy and time to spend it’s important to keep your exercising focused on what you want to do.
With a private training session, you can be sure you’re doing everything you can to push yourself in the right direction, and with a personal trainer who has your back you can be sure you’re pushing as hard as you can. Whether it’s high-impact jogging to improve your heart health or low-impact weight training to replace fat with muscle, our personal trainers can help you get the shape you want.
You can sign up for our private training or small-group sessions online, or you can head down to our location in Fort Mill to see for yourself all that we have to offer. Whether you need to lose weight, get in shape, or push yourself to new heights of fitness, you’ll find what you need at Everlasting Changes. And don’t forget to sign up for our QuickStart Program and get the first $375-worth of strategy and training sessions for free, with no obligation to keep going.
