Do you actually know what you should receive from your Personal Trainer? 

If you do, then great. If not, then you’re certainly not alone. It’s not uncommon for someone to receive a PT service that just isn’t up to scratch for what a trainer should provide.

Fat loss in theory is pretty simple… Consume less calories than you expend daily and as a result of this, you will use stored fat as energy to function, thus resulting in fat loss. So, basically eat less and stay active so your body can burn stored fat for energy. Sounds straight forward enough, right? Yet so many of us struggle to actually lose fat. That’s because in reality it’s not that simple. There are loads of reasons and influences, internally and externally, that make you prone to eating more and moving less!
