Men’s Fitness – Training for Men

When it comes to men’s fitness, Authentic Health Studio, Essendon, has decades of experience in creating workout plans for men. Whether your goal is to achieve a lean, strong, pain-free body so that you’re ready for all life’s challenges, or your focus is professional-level training for athletes and competition, our down-to-earth coaches know how to maximize workouts for men.

Having worked with over 300 men during the past 10 years Authentic Health knows what is important when it comes to helping men achieve long-lasting results.

The Authentic Health Approach to Men’s Personal Training

Men tend to internalise their concerns or struggles. Traditionally speaking, men are less likely to seek help for their problems especially if they feel insecure about them. At Authentic Health, we have progressed to a more evolved school of thought when it comes to the approach we take to men’s personal training. Communication and listening are paramount.

We begin with a comprehensive Discovery Session that incorporates physical, mindset, and lifestyle behaviours to inform your individualised workout. We look at the physical goals you want to achieve, factor in your current level of fitness, and address any confidence or body image issues related to poor nutrition choices. This allows us to set and achieve clear goals, whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced.

We recognise typical masculine areas of concern relating to conditioning and performance, including chest, arms, and core. You’ll master some of the best exercises for men such as Deadlifts, which engage almost every muscle group in the body; the Back Squat which works several major muscle groups and is fantastic for legs; and our Core routine will improve balance, strength, and agility.

Common Reasons Men Gain Weight

There are several aspects as to why men gain weight, especially throughout certain stages of life: aging, professional stress from working or struggling to find work, and the responsibilities of fatherhood. These factors can take time and attention away from staying fit, strong, and healthy.

The main causes of weight gain for men (especially the unhealthy belly fat) include:

  • Poor Diet
  • Stress
  • Sleeping Hygiene
  • Lifestyle factors ie: smoking & alcohol consumption
  • Injuries & illness

Authentic Health Studio can course-correct these behaviours and set you on a path that leads to a more productive and positive lifestyle. We can amp up the cardio by including boxing, HIIT and strength training into your program.

Muscle Mass as Men Age

As we age, we lose muscle mass, bone mass, our joints become less nimble and our flexibility decreases. Simply put, this opens us to risk of injury, underlying health conditions, and living with pain. Regular exercise combats these issues. Take it from us, we see so many physical issues that could be prevented with regular exercise.

The best men’s exercise is the one that you do. Authentic Health personal trainers can identify that, incorporate your goals into an effective program that grows with you, and motivate you to stay on track. We are dedicated to helping you look and feel the best version of yourself so you can face life’s challenges head-on.

If you’re tired of average, it’s time to live the Authentic Health way.
