Exercise is one of the most effective strategies for weight loss, helping you lose those extra kilos and burn more fat and calories, even when you’re not in the gym. Our weight loss programs can help you become healthier and happier, while also improving your mood, boosting your metabolism, supporting mental and physical health, and reducing your risk of chronic disease.
Fitness First prioritises helping you put yourself and your health first, and our weight loss programs can help you achieve healthy weight loss and lifestyle goals, so you can be the best version of you!
Exercise is one of the most successful strategies for weight loss. It burns the calories and energy you’ve consumed in the form of food and drink. For weight loss to occur, you need your calories in (intake) to be less than your calories out (output).
Exercise is helpful here, as weight loss exercise can speed up your metabolism and increase your lean muscle mass - both of which mean you’re burning more calories throughout the day, even when you’re resting. This makes it much easier to maintain the calorie deficit required for weight loss.
Current recommendations suggest at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise daily can support weight loss, with studies showing regular exercise in the long-term contributes to weight loss and weight maintenance.
At Fitness First, we’re focused on helping you put your health and fitness first, so it’s important to us that there’s something for everyone. After all, the key to consistency is finding something you enjoy.
