Start Reading Nutrition Labels

It’s tough to cook everything from scratch if you’re busy trying to earn a living, raise the kids and live a normal life, so people opt for prepackaged processed food. Processed food isn’t all bad. In fact, frozen fruit and vegetables without added sugar are processed according to the definition. They’re picked at their full ripeness and immediately frozen, which means they may actually contain more nutrients than fresh produce on the shelf. You can make better decisions on which foods are healthy by reading nutrition labels.

At Aguirre Fitness, we don’t make you count calories.

Counting calories can be frustrating and often doesn’t work. That’s because you end up giving up and put your fitness on the back burner. We don’t work like that. We provide a time tested program with a money back guarantee that is a combination of exercise and healthy eating. You’ll burn fat, and get the success you want. It combines both tried and true methods of the past and the modern scientific information available today.

Those “health” foods might not be that healthy.

You’ll really only know if you read the label. For instance, granola and protein bars seem like they should be good for you, but when you consider that many contain high-fructose corn syrup or other form of sugar, hydrogenated oils and other additives. When you read the label, look for the minimum number of ingredients. Stick with those that have unsweetened fruit, whole grains and nuts or other natural ingredients.

You can find the amount of each ingredient by reading the label.

If the product is a whole wheat bread, whole grain flour should be at the top of the list. It shouldn’t be white flour with a bit of whole wheat flour. There is white whole grain flour that is made from a variety of white wheat, not red wheat, so don’t be fooled by the color of the bread. Read the rest of the label to ensure you’re getting your money’s worth.

  • Be on the lookout for healthy food that has been changed and became unhealthy. Low fat yogurt has extra sugar added to give it flavor. Yogurt with fruit, also frequently has added sugar. Make sure there are live bacteria.
  • You’ll find the freshest food when you check the food label. Compare food labels to find the container that has the most distant use by date. They put food on the shelves at varying times, so get ones that are freshest.
  • When you read labels, it’s good for your pocketbook, too. Many groceries have a private brand that’s made at the same facility as the more expensive name brand and contains the same ingredients.
  • You won’t find a personal trainer with a money back guarantee anywhere else in Henderson, except at Aguirre Fitness. That’s because we’ve proven our system will help you lose 11-21 pounds of body fat in just 30 days.

Butt Exercises That Don’t Require Weights

One of the benefits of working with us is that there is no calorie counting. We also offer the only money back guarantee in Henderson. Whether you lose weight or just want to feel healthier, getting your fittest and looking your best means you have to exercise and eat healthy, too. It helps you get the maximum benefit. One area people often want to tone is their derriere. As you lose weight, these butt exercises will help. You don’t have to have any equipment to do them, either.

Start simple with a kickback.

Stand next to a chair and hold it for extra balance. Swing one leg behind you and keep the other leg and back straight. Lift that leg as high as possible without leaning forward. Hold it at the high position and squeeze the glutes as tight as you can. Lower the leg, but don’t let it touch the ground and repeat the motion. Do several times and switch to the other leg.

Work your butt and your core muscles with a bridge.

Doing a bridge is good for toning hamstrings, too. It’s easy to do. Lay on your back on your mat or floor with your knees bent, feet flat on the floor and your arms to your sides with the palms up. Put your weight on your heels as you lift your hips off the floor. Try to form a straight line from your shoulders to your knees. Hold and squeeze muscles, then slowly lower back to starting position. Repeat.

A modified plank can work your whole body, plus give your butt a lift.

If you’re not familiar with a plank, it is similar to doing a push-up, but pushing up and holding. There are many ways to modify the plank to make it easier or focus on specific muscle groups. This one starts in a modified plank position that’s good for beginners. Instead of your weight being on your hands in front, you rise up and rest on your forearms. Toes should be touching and the body should form a straight line with the upper torso elevated. To work your glutes, raise one heel toward the ceiling by lifting it off the floor and pointing your toes. Hold and slowly return to the start position and raise the other leg.

  • There’s nothing better than squats for building a beautiful booty. Make sure you keep your back straight and head up. Your feet should be hip width apart. Lower your body keeping your knees behind your toes as you stick your butt behind you, like you’re you’re sitting down. Stand up and repeat.
  • You can work different muscles or work the same muscles on different planes by simply adjusting the width of your feet when you do a squat. Try them with a wider stance, with them shoulder-width apart.
  • Try the basic lunge. Put your right foot forward, leaving the left foot about three feet back. Bend your knees and lunge forward and down. Your back knee should touch the floor and the front knee should be at 90 degrees. Stand up and repeat then switch the left foot to the front.
  • Find a chair or coffee table that puts your knee at a 90-degree angle when you step on it with one leg and use it as a stair stepper or step platform.

Best Exercises To Tone Arms

At Aguirre Fitness in Henderson, NV, we know that a great body starts in the kitchen, but exercise is also important for good health. Whether it’s toning, building strength or just boosting your energy, we are here to help you do both. We know it takes more than just counting calories to make a difference, so we use a system that has been honed to perfection through the years of success. If you lose weight on your own, one of the side effects of losing weight are loose flabby muscles. To help you with this problem, here are exercises to tone arms.

The younger you are the quicker your arms loose that batwing look.

It takes strength training to get your arms looking toned and fit. Start immediately when you start your plan of healthy eating. Use weights and if you don’t have those, soup cans or water bottles will do. A full body workout will help reduce fat all over your body, but for those batwings, try an overhead tricep extension. Hold a water bottle, dumbbell or can with both hands over your head with arms straight up. Lower it behind your back, bending at the elbow and back up to the original position.

Go to the old stand-by, push-ups.

It might seem old school, but you can’t find a better arm exercise that also tones the body. You can use a standard push-up or modified one on bent knee if the standard is too hard. The width of your hands makes a huge difference on the area it affects most. For batwings, place your hands closer than shoulder width. For the traditional push-up, get into plan position on your toes and hands directly in line with the shoulders. Raise and lower your body using keeping it straight. For the modified, easier version, put the weight on your knees and hands, leaving your knees touch your mat as you lift.

You can tighten your arms while you sit.

A chair dip can be done at your desk and doing a few when you take a quick break can even boost your circulation. Sit on the edge of the chair, extend your legs off the floor and put your hands on both sides of the chair and lift yourself up and forward. Lower your body until your elbows are at a 90-degree angle, then raise yourself up again to seated position. Repeat.

  • For back and arms, do a bent over row. Use your dumbbells or alternatives, one in each hand. Bend at the waist, pushing shoulder blades together and back flat. Dumbbells should be in front of you with your arms straight down, palms facing each other. Pull up, bringing the dumbbells to the chest.
  • A super simple exercise that works the entire body is the plank. It’s nothing more than holding your bodyweight up with your arms. You can do modified versions on the forearms or knees to make it easier.
  • A simple and inexpensive way to do strength training that tones the arm muscles is with resistance bands. Keep your arms in front of you holding the end of the band in each hand and pull.
  • Good nutrition is also important when you want to eliminate flabby arms. It’s important to have plenty of collagen and other types of protein to build the muscle tissue and increase elasticity of the skin.
