Understanding Your Body Composition Helps Avoid Holiday Weight Gain Says Iron Orr Fitness
SAN DIEGO, Dec. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- For those struggling with their weight, the holidays can be very stressful. But according to Iron Orr Fitness in San Diego, individuals with an understanding of their body composition can avoid holiday weight gain.
"We're all given the best body composition for our needs," explained Justin Orr, founder of Iron Orr Fitness. "It's up to each of us to understand our individual structure and learn how to maximize it with proper nutrition and exercise for our body type and fat to muscle ratio. It's especially important to have this information during the holidays because awareness and understanding increase self-confidence and resolve."
Iron Orr uses the InBody test that within 45 seconds measures weight, body fat mass, dry lean mass, skeletal muscle mass, total body water, body mass index and body fat percentage. It also measures lean mass percentages in each arm and leg. Fitness trainers use the information to create personalized fitness and nutrition programs to help individuals meet their goals as well as to determine if one side of the body needs more attention than the other.
"Depending on your goals, it doesn't take much to make a difference as long as you know what to adjust," added Orr. "Your best friend who's the same height as you might weigh more but wear a smaller size. This is because her weight consists of a lot more muscle than yours, which explains why she can eat a lot more than you can but she doesn't gain weight while you do. This can be very frustrating to you if you don't understand that muscle burns almost twice as many calories as fat."
Iron Orr Fitness, located at 8720 Costa Verde Blvd. in the UTC area of San Diego, Calif. offers complimentary body composition readings and 15 to 20-minute fitness assessments by scheduling online at ironorrfitness.com.
