Top Wedding Fitness Questions

  •             

As a Personal Trainer for brides-to-be, I often get asked the same wedding fitness questions over and over again. Brides (and grooms) usually are looking for simple and easy ways to get in better shape for their special day.

While there arenít any quick-fix overnight shape-up plans, armed with the right knowledge and techniques anyone can improve their appearance in time for their wedding day. Here are the most common questions along with answers to help you get more fit in time for your nuptials.

My wedding is next month, how can I drop 20 pounds? Bottom line Ė you really canít. This answer doesnít get a lot of cheers, but itís the realistic truth. In a monthís time the most you typically can expect to lose is about 8 pounds. If you try unhealthy, starvation-type diets you possibly might be able to lose more than that. But, the truth is that those extra pounds probably wonít make you look a whole lot better. Thatís because if you lose that much weight in such a short period of time then you just lose water and muscle weight primarily Ė not fat! Youíd be better off losing the 8 pounds in a healthy way that includes increasing muscle mass and decreasing fat. This type of weight loss will actually improve your appearance. Plus, with the drastic 20-pound loss, you are putting yourself at risk for illness not to mention making yourself look sickly for your precious wedding photographs.

With all the wedding planning, I donít have a single minute to workout. What can I do? While wedding planning can make anyoneís life a little crazy, itís important not to lose sight of the importance of regular exercise. Decreasing your usual weekly fitness regimen is fine, but donít completely forgo it. Try to fit in even just 20 minutes three times per week. And, donít feel limited to traditional workouts. You can incorporate your wedding planning and workouts together. For example, enroll your fiancť and yourself in weekly dance lessons. Youíll wow your reception guests with your dance steps plus benefit from the exercise you get during each lesson.
