Personal trainer speaks – Alcohol and fitness

Don’t run from this post, I know most of you are already dreading having to read this because you believe I will give a lesson on drinking alcohol and tell you how bad it is for your body because you probably believe I don’t drink alcoholic beverages.   Well guess what!? You are right! Just kidding. I drink alcohol on New Year’s Eve just like the next person & drink it on rare occasions.  I don’t believe in telling people “quit” because I don’t believe in making your choices for you. I just believe in teaching everyone things they might not know. and reminding people of what to keep in mind before getting “drunk”.  

While we all celebrate for a new year, lets all take time to think about how health and alcohol work hand in hand but not so much in a good way.  Here are some quick things you may or may not know and hopefully if anything you will enjoy your alcoholic beverages with all of this in mind.

  • You don’t have to quit drinking alcohol to stay fit, just drink it in moderations and limit yourself
  • Read the links above & do some friendly research on your own 
  • Alcohol hinders cognitive thinking and coordination
  • Decreases muscle growth
  • Weight gain
  • Heart health

Plus many more things to keep in mind (negative).  I am a firm believer that if you want to stay healthy & fit, sometimes you have to make certain sacrifices for the better.  I think limiting one’s alcohol consumption is one of those sacrifices, mainly due to the fact that more then often people don’t put a limit on their intake.  If you choose to drink on rare occasions or what have , just do some research and find alcoholic beverages that are “better” for you and less calories perhaps . Red wine is supposed to be good for you to a certain degree so, try different things and figure out what works. Just always consider the impact it can make.  With all this being said, enjoy your holiday! Feel free to comment, like, follow and share. Thank you for reading.

You can assume I have a love for fitness & a love for Wonderwoman -- both assumptions are correct. I am an ACSM certified personal trainer of 8+ years -- I currently reside in Ohio and live a simplistic life at the age of 29. If I am not lifting, I am eating, sleeping, traveling, exploring, or movie watching. I recently moved during a pandemic, now I am focused on self care (self love), building a business of my own in personal training, becoming a professional blogger, starting a podcast and doing things that make me happy! I am a sister, daughter, and loyal friend --- I love everyone's dog and I am on a mission to pet as many dogs as possible everywhere I go! LOL. My mission is to talk health (physical/mental), design programming, motivational speak, learn, grow, prosper, build others and make as many people smile as possible because I want nothing more than to be the change I seek in the world.
