I can hear you asking how will a PT be any better than me training on my own?
Well a Personal trainer will push you to your limits that perhaps you may not do alone at the gym. Also just exercising alone does not provide results and a good PT like the team at Body + Beyond Performance, will provide you a realistic nutritional plan that will not only make you feel good but will also provide you the right nutrients to build your strength and stamina. In the midst of wedding planning, which can be very stressful, hiring a PT will provide you a great opportunity to take time out; a little outlet just blow off some steam and to look after yourself. Here are the benefits of working out and eating healthily in the lead up to your wedding.
1 – Reduction in stress levels from wedding planning
Wedding Planning is stressful (I think we have mentioned this in most of our blogs :)) The reason for this is because you are taking on a huge important project in conjunction with your regular life activities such as work, your social life and family time. There are also many couples who, clearly don’t feel like this is enough stuff to have going on at the same time and so also begin to look for a new home whilst also wedding planning. All this additional work will begin to take a toll on you. Getting a PT will give you some time to yourself – you don’t even need to think about what work out you will be doing, that what your PT is there for! Pushing your body through a well planned workout session will help you de-stress during this busy period of your life and importantly, since the work outs are scheduled you are less likely to give them a miss!
2 – Weight loss and toning up to fit into that Wedding Dress or Sherwani
If you are keen to lose weight and/or tone up for your wedding then a PT can really help accelerate the process by creating a fitness and nutritional plan specially to work for you and your goals.
3 – Increased strength & energy to enjoy all your wedding events

Exercising and eating healthily will significantly improve your energy and stamina. Asian weddings usually comprise of a number of late night events back to back. Having plenty of energy during all your wedding events is important and will really help you enjoy each event without feeling tired!
4 – Clear and beautiful skin ready for all those wedding photos
When you start working out, the increase in blood flow in your body will help nourish skin cells and in addition the reduction in stress as a result of exercising can improve the quality of your skin making you look more radiant. Stress can also cause symptoms like acne and eczema and so reducing stress through exercising may improve these conditions too. From my own experience, when I exercise frequently and eat healthily my skin does improve. I have less breakouts and the dark circles under my eye (the pains of being Asian!!) reduce significantly!
