Spring is about to get sprung around here, and that means the push is on to achieve those fitness goals that were made only a few months ago. It’s instances like these that remind us how fast time can fly. If you’ve been putting in the time at the gym, in the studio, or on the pavement, you have every right to expect to see some visible results on your body. If the results you’re seeing are minimal and you feel as if you’ve hit a plateau, you may be rethinking your diet to see where you can cut even more calories. You may be considering how you can increase the intensity or duration of your workouts. Now may not be the time for either. Now may be the time to chill out a little.
Why Would We Suggest This?
Chilling out on fitness goals when summer is right around the corner sounds ludicrous, we know. However, pushing through often leads to burnout. When there are alternatives, why not consider them? In our San Antonio offices, those alternatives include CoolSculpting and Emsculpt. Here’s what they can do for you.
CoolSculpting is a well-known fat-reducing treatment that has been changing bodies all around the world for the past several years. This office treatment is noninvasive and takes less than an hour per treatment area. Common problems that have been successfully treated with this device include excess fat on the thighs, abdomen, double chin, flanks, backs of the arms, and bra/back area. With just one session, up to 25% of the fat cells in a given area can be eliminated for good.
Where CoolSculpting gets rid of fat by causing a process called cryolipolysis, Emsculpt is all about toning the muscles for better body contours. You can see how these two techniques complement one another. During a short Emsculpt treatment, patients sit or lie comfortably while High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic waves penetrate deeply into the muscles. This energy causes supramaximal muscle contractions that mimic but far outdo the exercises performed in the gym. This treatment is intended for maximum results with absolutely no input from the patient.
CoolSculpting and Emsculpt may be the ideal companions to your current fitness routine. Each can bolster your efforts and help you see the results you’ve been working so hard for. By doing that, they can also bolster your motivation to keep up the good work.
