  • San Jose Personal Trainers Explain the Snowball Effect

    San Jose Personal Trainers Explain the Snowball Effect

    You probably know that living a healthy lifestyle is about long-term consistency, not workout trends or miracle diets. But our San Jose personal trainers want you to realize how each choice you make related to your health contributes to outcomes you’ll experience a week, month or year from now.

Drinks after work on Friday led to a heavy dinner, then sleeping too late to work out on Saturday, getting behind on your errands all weekend so you’re stressed ....

    A Lesson On Stress and Weight Gain From Method3 Campbell Personal Trainers

    You might have heard that stress kills. Did you know it can also make you gain unwanted weight? True story! Our Method3 Campbell personal trainers want you to know that when we’re stressed, our bodies release the hormone cortisol.

But it can be harmful in our modern world, leading to sugar cravings and overeating – which can lead to unwanted weight gain. Which causes more stress. A vicious circle, indeed. Stress also causes a lot of people to indulge in “comfort ....
