As a personal fitness trainer and weight-loss specialist. Many of my clients always asking me what they should eat after they work out. Nutrition is a very important component. When involved in an exercise program that is strenuous. It is very important to be nutritionally fed at all times. Proper feeding will enable  our muscles to repair quicker, recover quicker and also keep us healthy along the way. Many trainees overlooked importance of a post exercise meal or feeding. This is one gem that needs to be understood by all who wish to make success of the health and fitness goals.

In my private fitness studio in Cliffside Park, New Jersey. I am always educating my clients so they could better understand the importance of recovery. Recovery is just not about resting till your next training session or workout. Recovery  is also about feeding your  body the proper nutrition so admit rebuild, regenerate and be ready for the tasks at hand

I’m going  to go over to a different post workout feedings or meals. This all depends on what type of workout you primary  do. If it’s a more of a strength-based exercise program. It is more important to eat protein and a moderate about carbohydrates for the purpose of recovery and rebuilding. On the other hand if you’re doing more of a cardiovascular routine. There should be a minimal amount of protein but more carbohydrate to rebuild the glycogen stores that have been depleted during the cardiovascular activity.

His strength training protein is the holy Grail to what most trainers recommend. As a  personal fitness trainer I do believe in the proper amount of protein depending on body weight and strenuous activity. Along with some quality carbohydrates, such as vegetables and and complex starches.

If someone is more of a cardiovascular-based workout orientated person. More complex carbohydrates such as oats, sweet potatoes and vegetables should be consumed. But please understand a minimal amount of protein is also important between 15 to 20 g of a high quality protein such as chicken, lean meat or fish. also what is the recommended for both strength training and cardiovascular enthusiast is a  powder protein which comes in many flavors.

In my private studio in Cliffside Park, New Jersey.  there is not a day goes by where I don’t discuss what my clients are feeding themselves. As a personal fitness trainer is very important to educate my clients on how they could maintain and improve their fitness through nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.
