“Take your time”
“In general, a good mix of strength and endurance training is important if you want to lose weight,” says Lars Löwe. “However, many people will give up if their weight loss stagnates after some initial success.” As a BLUEf!t Guide, he motivated holidaymakers at TUI BLUE Palm Garden in Turkey to work out in the summer. Now, in winter, he helps the guests of TUI BLUE Fleesensee in Germany to get fit. The participants taking part in his fitness classes are most successful if they are patient, vary their workout routine, and eat right.
Lars warns the guests not to be impatient. “If you have gained weight over five years, you will not get rid of it within two months. Take your time!” You should start training your big muscles, e.g. using gym equipment to train your legs, back and abdominal muscles. This will burn up energy particularly well, and you will start losing weight. You then train your endurance and the body’s smaller muscle groups. For that purpose, Lars suggests TRX training, where participants work with a special belt system and their own body weight.
