Personal Trainer Markham-in-home personal training and diet recommendation

Tags : 

Our Personal Trainer Markham trainers will come to your location in Markham neighbourhoods to provide in-home personal training.

Markham is one of the communities in Greater Toronto Area situated north of Scarborough. Our trainers of Personal Trainer Markham, who are located in Markham can provide personal training to clients located in neighbourhoods of Unionville, Raymerville-Markville East and more.

The benefits of physical activities are many ~ lose fat, build muscle tone, improve strength, improve flexibility, increase cardiovascular capacity

Proper nutrition is key to lose weight fast. In our North American diet, we consume high sugar, processed carbs and high-fat diets in excess. For a very long time, fat has been blamed for causing poor health. What is still relatively unknown to most, excessive sugar content in diet is the leading cause of rising trends of obesity and major health issues across North America.


We also tend to eat oversized portions at the dinner table.  Read more about Food portion awareness and control

We also should avoid as much as possible avoid processed food and eat food in its natural state.

Practice moderation in your diet.

Having a personal trainer gives the benefit of:
– support and motivation
– nutritional guidance
– effective program and strategy
– keeps you engaged and motivated
ensure that your exercise techniques are correct and safe. Nothing is worse than having an injury that sidelines you from training. The injury can potentially be chronic and will affect your quality of life. Imagine living everyday of your life with nagging pain!

Movement compensation causes imbalances in your body . If you are one injured on one knee, you will limp when you walk. If the knee pain is chronic, you will walk with a limp over a very long period. Eventually, your body muscles, tendons, ligaments will adapt to walking with a limp. One side of your body will be stronger while the opposite side may get weaker. Now, your body is no longer balanced. Due to the imbalance, your body is now more susceptible to injuries.

Our personal trainers at Personal Trainer Markham can provide in-home personal training at the convenience and comfort of your home. Our trainers are able to design training programs to suit your training goals. In most cases, the program will include a blend of bodyweight exercises, bands, Swiss balls, etc.

The added benefits of in-home personal training are:
Convenience: this is a big plus for busy individuals.

Customized health and fitness program with Personal Trainer Mississauga


Program that boosts metabolism: Build muscle and burn fat

Our health and fitness programs are customized to our client’s physical fitness abilities.  As your fitness ability improves, so will your body composition (which is the percentage of body fat vs. percentage of lean muscle in your body). As the body fat percentage (BF %) decreases, you will gain more lean muscle mass. Having more lean muscle in your body will boost your body’s metabolism.


What is metabolism?

Metabolism is the chemical process that occurs in the human body to maintain life.


How does higher metabolism help burn body fat?

Metabolism usually increases when you have more muscles. In order to sustain the muscles, there will be more chemical process activities in the body. Each chemical activity burns calories.  So, the body burns more calories from the fat stored in the body as you have more lean muscles.



Program that is safe

Our in-home personal training programs are designed so that it will be safe for you. So you won’t get injured, Personal Trainer Mississauga’s trainers will check your technique while you are performing the exercise.

Good Quality Sleep

Body fat reduction can be frustrating for some people. People who are busy, with high stress, low physical activity lifestyles may find reducing body fat challenging. Other factors are age, gender, body types especially those who are genetically predisposed to accumulate fat easily.


Body types

The human body is generally classified into 3 main body types: mesomorph, endomorph, and ectomorph. Genetic blueprint determines the physical appearances of the body.


: typically gifted with athletic build features. The characteristics of mesomorphs are hard, rugged, rectangular, well-developed muscles, good posture. Mesomorphs gain muscle mass easily.


: usually have rounded body features, thick, and short limbs. Endomorphs accumulate fat easily with very little or no muscle definition.


: thin, flat chested, light build with small joints and lean muscle. Ectomorphs usually have long thin, slender limbs with stringy muscles. Their fast metabolism makes it hard for them to gain muscle mass.


Skinny “Fat”

(“MONW” – metabolically obese normal weight)

Believe it or not, even skinny individuals who neglect their health can gain high enough body fat percentage that is unhealthy.  The most dangerous fat is the “metabolically active” intra-abdominal or visceral fat. Visceral fat sits between organs and produces substances that increase the risk of heart disease and diabetes. However, it is easier to burn off visceral fat than subcutaneous fat with dieting and physical exercise. Subcutaneous fat is the layer of fat underneath the skin.


Balancing stress & hormones (a.k.a. life), diet, workout

Obesity is generally the result of overeating and lack of physical activity. The excess calories from food intake are stored as fat. Restrict calories intake through dieting, burn off more calories with exercise to lose fat. Easier said than done!  With the constant stress in our busy lifestyles, even the most easily “muscular-ed” mesomorph (the muscular built type) can get fat.

The abundance of high sugar content and carbs in our North American diet makes it more challenging for all of us to keep our weight in check. So, the million dollar questions are

what are the ways to lose weight?

how to lose body fat fast?

what is the best fat burning workout?


Here’s the spoiler, there is no fast way to lose fat. It is dependent upon your level of physical fitness,  body type, and lifestyle. The easier way to lose body fat is through managing stress (or cortisol), diet and be physically active. You may need to take gradual steps to change habits so that your body fat reduction plan is successful.  The plan should be suitable for your lifestyle.


Cortisol – stress hormone

What is cortisol? Cortisol is a “stress” hormone released from the adrenal glands. It is a hormone that is very important for our survival from threats. When threatened, the body releases high concentrations of cortisol to cause the release of body’s sugar and fat stores to meet the demands of stress.  When the threat is no longer present, cortisol levels return to baseline again. Short term cortisol increase is healthy but not when cortisol levels are chronically elevated.


Cortisol and exercise

The physical stress from working out elevates cortisol levels. Cortisol together with other hormones i.e. growth hormone and adrenaline increase fat burning.  At this time, insulin levels are at a minimum which is an ideal environment for fat burning.  So, it is a good idea to keep exercise sessions to an hour in order to maintain optimum cortisol levels. Extended durations of elevated cortisol has fat storage properties.


Cortisol and overeating



Cortisol affects a part of the brain function in an area called the hypothalamus.  The hormones from the hypothalamus regulate the body’s temperature, thirst, hunger, sleep, mood, sex drive, and signal the release of other hormones within the body. After a meal, the hypothalamus produces hormones to signal the feeling of fullness and satiety. However, when cortisol is chronically elevated in the body, it irritates the hypothalamus. So, the hypothalamus becomes de-sensitize and the signaling system response is impaired. You will become dissatisfied after meals and tend to overeat even more so when stressed.


Cortisol and Insulin Resistance

Cortisol causes insulin resistance. Cortisol and insulin block each others action by decreasing the sensitivity of each others receptors.


It is imperative to normalize cortisol levels in order to beat emotional eating. That means reducing stress and getting good quality sleep. Some stress relieving activities are dancing to the beat of your favourite music, spending leisure time with family, massage, stretching based activity i.e. vinyasa yoga (more yin-based yoga), laughter, time with pets, leisure walking in the park or beach, sauna, hot baths, meditation, be social, do something fun or something you enjoy like hobbies. Don’t discount physical affection with the significant other.


Food Portion Awareness and Control

You walk into your neighbourhood coffee shop and ask for normal morning coffee and muffin for breakfast. Little did you know, if you had ordered the same coffee and muffin 20 years ago, the portion size most likely had been smaller. Twenty  years ago, the muffin weighed 2.1 oz. with 210 calories compared to muffin today which weighs 4 oz. with up to 500 calories.


Overeating is prevalent in our society. Food portion today is much greater than the portion of 20 years ago. What is perceived as the normal serving size or the right amount of food today was over portioned 20 years ago. Our food portion paradigm has shifted or been distorted.


Another reason people overeat is probably the savoury taste of food. Artificial flavour enhancers added to processed foods and fast foods make them more palatable and preferred. A lot the fast food items have processed carbs content, from the white hamburger buns, the breading of the fried chicken, french fries. Similarly, people usually choose soft drinks or milkshakes over water because of the extreme sweet taste of the added enormous content of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) which is in the beverage. What about dessert, what about the sugar and carb content in the apple pie or ice cream?

Sugar and refined carbs are comfort food. They feed the brain and produces serotonin, natural mood booster so sugar can be addictive!

If you grew up with the calories-packed fast foods and high sugar content beverage culture, you may need to wean your taste buds in little baby steps and learn to accept the taste of Brussel sprouts, spinach, broccoli. Perhaps add some cheese, spices, mildly hot pepper to the nutrient-dense food choices. Maybe, add honey as sweetener to your unsweetened ice tea.


Too Much Sugar

Overeating is not the only bad thing. Consuming excessive amounts of high sugary foods and refined carbs has a damaging effect on the body’s insulin balance and increases fat storage.

What is surprising is what you consider as healthy, granola bars, instant oatmeal, some fruit juices contain high amount of added sugar.

Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada recommended average Canadians who consume 2000 calories daily should only have about 48 grams of sugar (12 teaspoons). A can of pop contains 85% of daily sugar limit.

If you want to lose weight, your sugar intake should be less than the recommended amount.

Latest update – Oct 2016 : Cancer cells feed on sugar to grow.  Reducing sugar intake will help to slow down cancer growth and in some cases eliminate it entirely.



Sugar, Refined Carbs and Insulin Resistance

How do sugar and carbs cause insulin resistance?

When we eat food the body’s pancreas releases insulin to store nutrients. The nutrients are carbs, fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, water. When insulin level is high, glucose is stored as glycogen in the liver, and muscles while fat metabolism is inhibited.

Insulin, itself, does not convert nutrients into storage form. Insulin is like a salesperson who knocks on the doors of the cells convincing the cells to let glucose be stored away in the cells’ “house” as glycogen.

Everything is fine, we have calorie supply that matches calorie demand. The problem becomes an issue when calorie supply exceeds calorie demand. As obesity researcher, Stephan Guyenet, stated, “…. just as chronic energy excess is toxic to a whole person, it is toxic to the cell. ….

When the cells’ glycogen storage sites are full, the excess glucose converts to fat to be stored away, again inside the cell … (In the muscle cells the stored fat is known as intra-myocellular lipids) ~ ~ Whew!!  As the cells’ internal storage sites become full, they will have to turn away more insulin and more glucose that want to come in. So, the cells now become insulin resistant. The cells are basically saying, “ I have too much calorie packs, I have no space to store them!


Everyone has fat cells

This phenomenon is not only happening in cells of muscle tissue but also happens to fat tissues.  The technical term for fat tissue is adipose tissue and it is made up of fat cells.  We are born with a pre-determined number of fat cells. Each fat cell can grow to 6 times its original size. The more fat droplets it stores the bigger it gets. When all the fat cells reach their maximum size, the body will create new fat cells to avail itself for more fat storage.


As the skeletal muscle cells resist insulin the body will have to store the glucose somewhere but not in the blood stream.  Having chronic high blood glucose is dangerous. Anyone who is diabetic will let you know how bad it can get. So, the body will have to remove the glucose from the blood stream and store it away somewhere or convert it into inert or less toxic form.

Heightened blood glucose levels continue to signal the pancreas to release more insulin hormone. Unknown to the pancreas, it pumps out more insulin to get glucose off the bloodstream.  Irrespective of how much insulin hormone is present, the cells are still resistant to insulin.


Can glucose (sugar) convert to fat? Yes, it can. 

After a long period of secreting insulin, and continuous feeding of high amounts of glucose, the pancreas’ insulin production machinery becomes fatigue. Now, the insulin production capacity is negatively affected.  Since glucose is not allowed into cells because the cells are insulin-resistant, and the pancreas insulin production is compromised, the body has to convert it fat.  So as more fat droplets are stored in the fat cells and they grow bigger. As the fat cells increase in size they too become more insulin resistant.

Upon exhausting all avenues of removing glucose from the bloodstream, a person is considered diabetic if the blood glucose reading is 126 ml/dL.

Once the body calls for energy (especially calories expenditure through exercise), the stored glycogen and fat convert to energy. As the energy stores become depleted, the cells will begin to accept the energy packs of glycogen and fat again. This restores insulin sensitivity.


Fat burner needs water

Two-thirds of the human body is made up of water. Water helps regulate body temperature, helps with blood flow. With good blood flow, the nutrients and waste material are easily transported to muscles and organs and the brain.

Water also suppresses appetite and carbs cravings. Since muscles are mostly water, hydration promotes muscle growth. Having more muscle means higher metabolism, more fat burners.

Fat burning fact: the body needs water in its chemical reaction to convert fat (triglycerides) to free fatty acids. Free fatty acids, the usable form of energy sources are then delivered into cells to be converted into energy.

Therefore, water is vital in the fat burner processes in the body.


Tips on how to lose body fat fast:

1) Use smaller serving plates:

You eat more food if you get food served to you on bigger dinner plates. Use smaller luncheon plates, the plate looks more full and you tend to eat less.


2) Eat at slower rate

If you eat at a slower rate, your stomach will have more time to communicate the feeling of satiety and fullness to your brain before you overeat. Chew your food and enjoy taste of the food. Then you will eat less.


3) Low carb high protein, high fat diet
Reduce carbohydrates, eat more protein, and good fats. Carbohydrates are quick sources energy. The body can burn off calories derived from carbohydrates faster than from fat or protein. Naturally, the body will choose the easier source of energy, which is from carbohydrates.

The body operates on continuum basis. As the body exhaust the carbohydrate energy stores, the next alternative choice is either to harness calories from fat or protein. When carbohydrates become available more again, it will dial itself back to burning more carbs, burn less fat.

Everyone has different inclination towards carbohydrates-fat metabolism. Everyone has different fat burning capacity, some can burn fat easier than others. Low carb diet will affect those who has lower fat burning inclinations. They will feel lethargic, moody, lacking in attention span.

Vary the amount of carbohydrates intake until you find an amount that you feel comfortable with. Then, train your body’s fat burning machinery to burn more fat by gradually dialing down carb content in your diet.


Dietitian consultation available:

If you have a pre-existing medical condition and with a doctor’s note, our Registered Dietitian is available for consultation.

Dietitian’s consultation fees are extra, which are usually covered under workplace insurance benefits.

Personal Trainer Toronto’s dietitian can help determine the optimum amount of carbs, fat, protein in your diet plan. An effective nutrition and workout plan are the key features of the Fat Burner program to help you to lose fat effectively.

4) Eat complex carbswhole grain foods, fruits, vegetables.
Carbohydrates (including sugar) in most natural form prevent blood sugar spikes. Natural complex carbs metabolism goes through several extra steps before it can be broken down into its simple, usable form, glucose.

Additional benefit, fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants. Some examples of natural complex carbs are, oats, unprocessed wheat, brown rice, vegetables, fruits.


5) Time your carbs intake

You should also consume carbs about 10 – 15 mins after your workout to replenish the empty glycogen stores in the muscles and liver. This provides an environment of low stress for muscle building because the fed energy system is not stressed for energy. Some immediate post-workout replenishment sources are peanut butter sandwich, chocolate milk, bananas, healthy home-made cookies (no trans fat), or good quality protein drink. Make sure you have enough protein during your next meal after your workout.


6) Avoid simple sugars, soda pop, processed white flour pastries

The sugar, including fructose or high fructose corn syrup, is a high calorie food that causes high blood sugar spikes and promotes fat accumulation in the body. Fructose which is present in sugar and fruits is directly converted into fat, uric acid and free radicals in the liver. Excessive amounts fructose over long term can damage the liver, artery walls, cell structures.


7) Fat is Good, if it is omega-3 fat

Sources of omega-3 fats are cold water fish like salmon, shellfish, nuts and seeds like walnuts, flaxseeds, avocado. Omega 3 fat improves insulin sensitivity, has protective effect against heart diseases, cancer. It is anti-inflammatory, helps improve brain functions, better nervous system transmission, improve cellular structure for better gene expression

Avoid manufactured trans fat – eliminate fast foods, no margarine, commercial baked pastries. They increase heart attack risks.

Trans fat is also found naturally in meat, milk, and butter in small amounts. However, the trans fat found naturally in foods does not increase your risk of heart disease.


8) Increase protein

Protein is the building blocks of muscles, tendons, ligaments. So, having adequate amount of protein preserve muscle mass, hence, maintaining higher metabolism. From the fat loss perspective, protein metabolism requires more calories expenditure. Protein increases insulin sensitivity which is important in any shred fat gain muscle plans.
Protein metabolism creates acid and oxidative stress in the body. In addition to feeding on protein, eating recommended portions of fruits, vegetables and legumes are recommended.  Vegetables, fruits, legumes are rich in anti-oxidants. The anti-oxidants can balance the oxidative stress from protein metabolism.


9) Fibre (fiber) in your diet is good

Fibre is calorie free and it helps you to feel full longer so, you will eat less. Having fibre in your diet is good for gastrointestinal health and healthy bowel movement.


10) Exercise regularly
You can lose weight just by making changes in your diet alone. However, without any exercise (however, it needs to be the correct type of exercise), you will not build muscle. Muscle needs energy to sustain itself. The more muscles you have, the more energy is needed to sustain the muscles. When you are sitting down, sleeping, reading, your body will burn more calories in comparison to someone who has higher body fat percentage. By having more muscles, you have higher metabolism.


Many research studies have proven that exercise improves insulin sensitivity and metabolic flexibility. A good variety mix of weight training, cardio training restore the function of the insulin system.
