YourFoodForLife and Comberton Gym Launch Dual Approach to Sustainable Weight Loss on National Fitness Day

7th September 2016 Cambridge UK: YourFoodForLife, the Cambridge based weight loss specialists and Comberton Gym have jointly developed a fitness regime to help clients in South Cambridgeshire achieve sustainable weight loss and discover simple ways they can become more physically active. The programme will be launched on National Fitness Day.

Exercise forms an important part of any weight loss programme. It increases the rate at which the body uses energy, protects against muscle loss as you lose weight and helps stabilise blood sugar levels. Additionally, exercising regularly helps lower blood pressure, improves general health and promotes a feeling of wellbeing. The challenge is accommodating an exercise regime within a busy working day. This, according to Susan Krueger of YourFoodForLife, is an important part of making weight loss permanent.

Ally Stewart, Sports Development Manager of Comberton Sports and Arts, designs personal exercise regimes that combine total body workout, resistance training and cardio exercise to run alongside YourFoodForLife’s 12-step weight loss programme. The two together ensure fitness and health goals are met. During exercise sessions clients gain an appreciation of the impact physical activity has on health and wellbeing and how small adjustments to their lifestyle are key to long-term weight reduction.

Stewart says: “Simple small lifestyle changes can go a long way to improving your long-term health and wellbeing. Regular exercise combined with a sensible balanced diet will not only make you feel a lot better but it will make you look a lot better too. You will be surprised how quickly your fitness will improve once you get a regular exercise routine going. It’s easy. People can also come along to the gym with a friend and make the exercise sessions a regular social occasion.”

Krueger says: “For many people finding time for exercise in a busy working day is a real challenge, but Comberton Gym is making it both simple and fun. It’s all about finding ways to exercise as part of your daily routine; do that and you feel energised, healthier and happier.”
