Want to Get Fit for Your Marriage? Help May be Necessary

Many people want to be in tip-top shape by the time their wedding day rolls around. Slimmer physiques are all to grin about on your big day. It’s especially exciting when brides and grooms do their fitness regimens together.

To get some help, my fiancé, Lance, and I went to Gold’s Gym in Douglasville, Ga. Personal trainer Joe Taylor provided tips and guided us on exercise routines to help achieve our goals. He was a major inspiration in that he pushed us when we felt like we couldn’t go on. With this in mind, realize that in addition to offering expertise in fitness, a personal trainer is effective in pushing you when those “giving up” moments arise, holding you accountable in achieving your goals, and offering support in your efforts.


Our exercise schedule includes 30 minutes of weight training three times per week as well as 30 minutes of cardio four times per week. Cardio can include walking or running on the treadmill or outdoors, using the elliptical machine, bicycling, and doing aerobics.  


Of course, it’s vital to focus on eating habits. For example, Lance tends to eat late at night then go to bed. This is a “no-no” because your body should have time to digest your food before falling off to sleep. Joe recommended that he stop eating at least three hours before going to bed. In addition, he advised us on changing the foods that we consume. Joe provided a list of healthy foods such as leans meats (i.e., turkey and chicken), vegetables (i.e., asparagus, cabbage, and spinach), and fruits (i.e., apples, nectarines, and grapes).

If you’re a bride or groom ready to trim down, or even tone up for your wedding day, Joe is a great resource, and in my opinion, an awesome trainer. Visit Gold’s Gym West Georgia’s website or Facebook page.
