Often I am asked, what is actually a health coach certification online and where is the difference in the actual fitness training. Effectively, health training is fitness training, fitness training is sad to say not always health training.
Unfortunately, in the fitness training field often an insufficient medical history is made, often just the fast muscle or even the fast weight loss in the foreground and already existing diseases or perhaps complaints are not always or even not sufficiently considered. Just an experienced and well-trained coach is able to provide real assistance. A health promoting training aims to train a person to be cared for, taking into account today’s state of health. We understand fitness training which is holistically planned and in which medical advice and support is paramount. This is applicable to both who exercise training as a disease prevention, of course, but also for individuals who turn to us due to a health problem. (Back problems, cardiovascular diseases, burn out, 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 and also a doctor’s approval, a training plan should be generated.
Adults should perform at least 150 minutes (2½ hours) per week of moderate intensity exercise or perhaps 75 minutes (1¼ hours) per week of higher intensity exercise or even equivalent combination of medium and high intensity exercise. Preferably, the activity must be spread over extra days of the week as you can. Each unit should work for at the very least 10 minutes continuously.
Adults should – for additional and a lot more extensive health benefits – increase their range of motion to 300 minutes (5 hours) per week of moderate intensity exercise or 150 minutes (2½ hours) per week of higher intensity exercise or possibly a collaboration of exercise with them aim for higher intensity and medium.
On 2 plus days of the week, adults should perform moderate or perhaps high intensity muscular exercise that involves all major muscle groups
However, these recommendations sound very time-consuming at first. But also movements of day to day life, which includes walking fast, cycling to work, gardening, etc. are considered to be health beneficial. Small things, including taking the stairs instead of 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 great to do.
Nevertheless, ideal with targeted training physical performance can be really and sustainably improved, and exactly this effect you want to inevitably achieve.
