LOSE FAT IN THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY IN ZÜRICH
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Alejandro and even as a young child I was always fascinated by sports and movement. This led me to start my academic university career studying Sport Sciences and go on to obtain my degree (BSc) and master's degree (MSc) in this subject.
I love my role as a Personal Trainer, as I am able to help guide others to be their best while working in the field where my passion lies. I do this by guiding you into the right direction to reach your ambitious fitness and health goals in an agreed timeframe. I craft and execute all training sessions tailored to individual needs, based on proven scientific evidence.
HOW WILL WE REACH YOUR FAT LOSS GOALS?
1 - Learning the process & adhering to it
I invite you to be an active part of the process and my goal is to let you know why we do everything we do.
Your goals, needs and characteristics require a tailor-made plan.
The programme adapts to you, so that it becomes part of your daily life.
2 - Improving your body composition
What does it mean? To lose fat and gain or keep muscle at the same time. We will work on your STRENGTH to keep or minimise muscle loss while at the same time losing fat.
Explained simply: when you drop kilograms from your body without including resistance training, you lose both fat and muscle. Once you finish or quit your plan, fat gets the head start and builds up first. But your appetite stays in high gear until your muscle returns, which means you keep adding, most probably fat, too.
This is well illustrated in the graph: fat free mass (FFM - shown in red) and fat mass (FM - shown in blue) during the intervention.
This is called protein-stat theory or more commonly known as "the yo-yo effect".
Every kilogram of body weight you lose in the form of muscle will always further delay the fat loss process.

3 - Following simple tasks to increase your daily activity or NEAT
Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (NEAT) is the energy expended for everything we do that does not include sleeping or exercise; and ranges from simple things like standing and fidgeting to moving about.
A one-hour training session does not make up for a whole day sitting in the office. I call this "a sedentary person who trains'. Daily activity outside the training session or NEAT is a very underrated parameter when it comes to fat loss.
We all know a well-structured and consistent exercise programme combined with a healthy diet can help all of us shed unwanted kilograms and achieve our ideal body type.
But do we need to push ourselves in the gym each day leaving buckets of sweat on the floor? Do we really have to eat foods that taste like cardboard?
No, we don't!
That's where Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (or NEAT) comes into play.
