Lean and fat mass change together, making the whole process more complicated.
One of the most common questions I am asked when I sit down with a client to establish a plan is, “What should I weigh?”
That is understandable amidst the sea of opinions and cultural pressures. It’s so hard to know what weight to aim for and still maintain a healthy body image. We get so focused on the number on a scale that we can lose sight of what really matters at the end of the day—being healthy and able to lead a full life.
If you've decided it's time to shop for a new strength coach, gym, or program, here's what to look for.
If you live in or around a populated area, there’s probably no shortage of general gyms or CrossFit boxes you could join. If you’re a beginner, the different programs offered by these gyms may look about the same to you. But after a year of consistent training, you may see your progress stall. Then you have to decide if you're going to stick with the programs and coaching at your gym, or if you need a change. If your goal is long-term strength development, you may need to be more selective in where you choose to train and who you let coach you.
