Bouncing Back: The Top Tips for Getting Back in Shape After Giving Birth

Bouncing Back: Top Tips for Getting Back in Shape After Giving Birth

The average woman gains approximately 25 to 35 lbs during her pregnancy. While a lot of this weight is gone when the baby is born, there is still some weight to be lost after delivery. Getting back in shape after having a baby can help you feel like you have gained back control of your body.

First off, congratulations, you just delivered a miracle! You should feel proud of what your body just produced, and ready for the joys of being with your baby outside of the womb.

All that aside, most women tend to claim that they want to lose their post-pregnancy fat and feel in shape again.

While some of this fat is essential for breastfeeding, there is some weight that is safe to lose. So, the question is, how do we bounce back after delivering a baby and lose those unwanted pounds safely?

Keep reading to learn everything about getting back in shape after having a baby.

Breastfeeding

Yes, you read that right! Depending on how much breast milk you are producing, breastfeeding can burn an average of 500-800 calories per day! Now you probably understand why your body wants to hold on to that fat after delivery.

Some women can drop most of their baby fat from breastfeeding alone! Be very careful about following a diet at this time, as you need those calories to keep your baby nourished. Focus on eating nutrient dense foods and you will be fine.

Exercise With Your Baby

By bringing your baby along with you while you exercise, you are able to stick to your exercise plan and not feel guilty about being away from your baby.

There are many fitness classes for new moms to include their babies. Look up a mom and baby fitness class near you and you will have no problem getting back in shape!

Meet Other New Moms

One of the most commonly discussed topics between new moms is how they are feeling about their post-pregnancy bodies. Of course, we need to keep our beauty in line, so ask them if they want to be your exercise partner!

This is the perfect time to meet other new moms, go for walks, and exercise together with your babies in the park.

Be Gentle With Yourself

Remember that your body just delivered a baby, your hormones are all over the place and you are probably exhausted from lack of sleep.

When you are feeling those moments of guilt with the weight gain, take a step back and acknowledge what your body just created.

Get Some Rest

Lack of sleep is linked to high cortisol in the body, high cortisol leads to the inability to lose fat. With a newborn baby, chances are you are not sleeping well at night.

When at all possible, put yourself down for a nap along with your baby. Forget about the laundry, you can do that later. This is your time to rejuvenate.

Ring in the New Year! Why Your Spa Should Offer an Endermologie Treatment in 2019

Offer Endermologie Treatments in 2019

Cellulitis is an unpleasant side effect of aging and weight gain for many men and women.

Cellulite is caused by fat cells beneath the skin, which trap toxins and hold in water. Luckily, the FDA has recently approved a treatment that can help treat (but not get rid of) cellulite.

Endermologie is a cellulite treatment that uses a mechanical massage to increase circulation and make the skin firmer, temporarily reducing cellulite. As it was only recently approved by the FDA, endermologie is not yet widely offered.

Here’s why your spa should offer endermologie treatment in 2019.

Improve Client Confidence

Cellulitis is a skin condition that many people around the world have and are looking to get rid of, so they can increase their body confidence.

This is a great opportunity to help improve your client’s confidence in their body’s.

As a spa, you already provide services that help to relieve tension and improve wellness. With endermologie, you are providing a treatment that can keep your patients feeling good. And, who better to make feel good than new mothers, who are among the most common endermologie patients!

Increase Client Loyalty

Most patients receiving endermologie treatments will do up to 6-10 treatments for an hour at a time, taking place over several months. These constant client returns should be music to your ears, as returning clients mean a great investment.

You may even be able to increase your overall revenue with your clients continuously coming back for treatments. With endermologie being a relatively affordable process, your customers may look to pursue other services that will help them feel even better, driving up sales for your spa.

Help Relaxation

If you’re looking to sell relaxation as part of your spa experience, endermologie is a must-have for you. With the deep tissue massage that an endermologie treatment uses, your clients will be especially relaxed compared to other treatments.

Potential for Packaging

While endermologie is typically a treatment that is offered on its own, it has huge packaging potential. You can offer endermologie treatments along with other services you may have. You can easily use endermologie to fit into a stress-reduction or body-positivity theme.

Exciting Novel Idea

Endermologie is a new trend that was only recently approved by the FDA but has been used in other countries for many years. There is no doubt that the market for it will soon take off.

It’s best to be ahead of the curve where you can, and endermologie is a terrific opportunity for that.

Incorporating Endermologie Treatment at Your Spa

If your spa doesn’t already offer endermologie treatment, you should jump on the trend soon! It will benefit your clients’ well-being and will make sure that your spa is better off. Endermologie’s potential is unmatched as it is a proven solution for a problem so many people have.

The 5 Biggest Myths About Cellulite Debunked

reduce cellulite

From a young age, we are taught that cellulite is ‘bad’ and that we can work it off or get rid of it by using the latest, greatest, and newest creams, diets, or exercise. This couldn’t be further from the truth!

We’re going to take a look into the truth about cellulite to find out what these common myths are and where they come from. Keep reading for more information!

Being Overweight Causes Cellulite

This is an amusing assumption. Although people that are overweight tend to show more cellulite, having it doesn’t relate to weight at all.

Slim, athletic models and professional sports players can all have cellulite. However, because of their diets and exercise regimens, the problem is less noticeable.

It comes down to the fact that the more fat on someone’s body, the more likely it is to put stress on connective tissues and bulge out.

There is a Secret Cream to Get Rid of Cellulite

Unfortunately, there is no cream in the world (yet) that will completely get rid of your cellulite problem. There is evidence that suggests creams containing retinoids help with the appearance–but that is all they do–help.

Retinoids will cause the skin to become thicker which will help reduce the appearance of cellulite but not actually get rid of it.

Clothing Will Permanently Reduce Cellulite

There are all sorts of clothing companies on the market that advertise to women (and men) clothes that will ‘help get rid of cellulite.’ While it is true that compression clothing will help for a time, it does not actually remove or permanently reduce this problem.

Truth be told, when compression clothes are constantly worn, they can have the opposite effect on cellulite. The reduction of blood flow may increase the appearance of this annoying issue.

Detoxification Will Reduce Cellulite

There is no real proof that ‘toxins’ cause or worsen cellulite. Choosing to spend money on these treatments may only offer disappointing results. Cellulite is simply caused by underlying fat deposits pushing through collagen fibers and connective tissue.

This cannot be stopped or prevented by removing ‘toxins’ from the body!

Cardio & Weight Loss to Lose Cellulite

While cardio will help you lose weight which may help reduce the appearance of cellulite, it will not cure it permanently. The best way to smooth skin by working out is strength training!

Strength training may not make you shed pounds as quickly as cardiovascular activities will, but incorporating weight training will help tighten those problem areas.

The Science Behind the Truth About Cellulite

When you are looking for a cure to your cellulite, your best bet is going to be to use a scientific-based method. Choosing science is a much better bet than the hopes and dreams of curing your cellulite.

The truth about cellulite is that it won’t go away on its own and no amount of special cream is going to help. However, if you’re ready for proven results, you are ready to explore how endermologie can help you!

5 Tips for Toning Your Body at Forty

Losing weight at 40

A lot of things change about our bodies as we get older – our muscle mass decreases, our metabolism slows and we can’t always exercise the way we used to.

The key to losing weight and toning your body is not to starve yourself, try a fad diet or exercise an unhealthy amount. Making small, sustainable changes will add up to big weight loss and toning over time. By making small changes you can realistically keep, you’ll keep the weight off and your life won’t turn into a constant dieting cycle.

Trying to tone your body after pregnancy or with long work hours isn’t impossible, but you might need to make some lifestyle changes or seek help from a professional treatment. Here are six habits to adopt right now, to help you tone your body over forty:

Don’t Skip Meals

You might be tempted to skip meals when you’re not hungry in order to cut out more calories from your day. This can be a big mistake, however, as cutting meals can mess with your metabolism.

Your body likes routine, so try to get on a regular eating schedule. Skipping meals can also cause your blood sugar to drop rapidly, which can leave you ravenously hungry later in the day and make you reach for unhealthy snacks.

Figure Out Your Calorie Needs

There are tons of diets out there that claim to do things differently, but the science of weight loss is simple: you need to burn more calories than you consume. In order to do this, you need to determine exactly what your calorie needs are.

There are plenty of online calculators to help you determine this, or consult a dietician or doctor if you think you have a substantial amount of weight to lose.

Try Endermologie ® Treatments

Toning at a later age can be difficult, so sometimes you need assistance from a treatment like Endermologie ®. Extensive research has shown that body Endermologie® helps to tone and improve the skin’s radiance, while reducing the appearance of cellulite. It only requires 15-35 minutes and results are usually seen within 2-3 weeks. It’s completely natural, non-invasive, and has no side effects.

Stay Active

As we get older, it seems life gets busier and busier. Between going to work, picking up the kids from school, and cooking dinner, there never seems to be enough time in the day. Even if it’s a quick walk around the block before the family wakes up or taking your little ones for a neighborhood bike ride, staying active is important for maintaining a good metabolism.

Reduce Stress Eating with Meditation

Stress eating is something many adults struggle with, so reducing stress should be a top priority when you’re dieting and trying to tone. This is easier said than done, but studies have shown that meditating can help reduce stress.

It only takes five minutes or less per day and it can make a big difference in your stress level.

Still Having Trouble Losing Weight?

If you still can’t tone your body the way you want, it might be time to seek a professional treatment like Endermologie ®. We offer the revolutionary Endermologie® treatment to help you reduce the appearance of cellulite, tone the skin, and more.

Endermologie can help you get the body you’ve always wanted at any age. Find a center near you to start your journey with Endermologie®.
