What can I say about Warrior Fitness? To me, this Boutique style gym has been the answer to my prayers. I am in love with the clean facility, the convenient location, the young energetic staff, and the community feel of the membership. The equipment is state-of-the art. The classes are fun yet challenging. The hours are great. And the membership fees are affordable. The relationship I’ve established with the Coaches/Trainers and members is second to none.

After attending a few classes on a 3-class FREE trial, I was sold. I immediately purchased a membership and a pair of Warrior Fitness boxing gloves and began attending Kick Boxing classes, Boot Camp classes, and Open Gym. The personalized instruction and Demos of each exercise and technique during classes has proven educational for me as I replicate those techniques at home in between gym workouts.

Since becoming an official member of Warrior Fitness and completing my first 6-Week Fitness Challenge shortly after joining, I feel stronger, I have more endurance and stamina, my body is more flexible and limber, my metabolism has increased, my energy level and confidence are higher, and I get excited about hitting the Warrior Fitness gym everyday.

And, the bonus is that I have lost a significant amount of weight and inches in problem areas while meeting new friends who motivate and encourage each other while we are all living that #WarriorLifestyle! πŸ₯ŠπŸ‹πŸΏβ€β™€οΈπŸš΄πŸΏβ€β™‚οΈπŸƒπŸΏβ€β™€οΈπŸ§˜πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ

Overcome Emotional Overeating

Do you feel like you have a never-ending battle with the scale? Are you tired of gaining weight that stays with you forever? The cause of your weight gain might be emotional overeating.

What is emotional overeating?

Emotional overeating is a complex topic, but it has essential elements that are easy to recognize.

Emotional overeating is defined as disordered eating that is characterized by the compulsion to eat even if you’re full. It tends to be a response to negative emotions or thoughts. It’s also seen as a coping strategy for those who are under stress or who have suffered abuse.

Food often provides comfort for emotional eaters. But the comfort is only temporary! Emotional overeating can sabotage your diet and weight-loss goals. It can also negatively affect your health.

Luckily, there are easy steps you can take today to stop emotional overeating!

Try these strategies:

1. Figure out your triggers. In many cases, emotional overeating is triggered by an event, thought, or feeling.

* If you can figure out your triggers, then it will be easier to take control of them and stop them from encouraging you to overeat.

* The most common triggers are stress and negative emotions. Other triggers can be difficult days at work, fights with your family or spouse, and issues with friends or coworkers.

* Therapy may also help you deal with your triggers.

2. Try to eat only when you’re hungry. Teach your body to accept food only when you’re really hungry instead of viewing it as a constant source of comfort.

* This step will take time because changing your eating habits is challenging. However, you can take small steps to make dietary modifications. Learn to listen to your body and pay attention to real hunger pangs.

3. Create alternative plans. For example, if you know that you overeat after a difficult meeting at work each week, then plan ahead and try to prevent it. Try substituting a more positive action that also brings you comfort or reduces your stress.

* By creating alternative plans that don’t involve eating, you will be setting yourself up for diet success.

* For example, you can plan a long walk or gym workout after work to get rid of stress.

* Instead of turning to your fridge and ice cream after an argument, you can binge watch your favorite TV shows or get on the phone with a friend.

* The key is to find other ways to deal with stress and negative emotions.

4. Surround yourself with people who care. One of the main reasons many people turn to emotional overeating is because they feel like they don’t have a support network. Do you feel alone and isolated?

* Reach out to family, friends, coworkers, and others for help.

* Build a strong support network around you that can help you deal with negativity and stress. Find those whom you can call or visit without worrying that you’re intruding or upsetting them. In turn, be open to offering them support, too.

* Explain to friends or loved ones about emotional overeating so they can understand why you overeat. Discuss effective techniques that can motivate you to stick to a diet or exercise plan. They can remind you of these techniques when you need help, without being authoritarian or critical, to help you get back on track.

Emotional overeating doesn’t have to control your life. You can fight it and overcome it with these easy strategies.
