Seeing results immediately in your workout

For many who begin an exercise program at LEAN, the first question I’m asked is, “How quickly will I see results?” Each time, I respond, “immediately!”

Of course, I eventually outline the variables that play into the long term results: how much additional cardio is done outside the workout, the size and quality of the meals the client is eating and the attendance to each resistance workout.  But, results immediately happen in the only way that truly matters. Clients feel good about themselves.

A good workout will always boost your mood and provide a feeling of accomplishment.  It doesn’t necessarily involve all-out, sweating and laboring (though there’s something to be said for that intensity of work).  Rather, the core benefit of exercise comes when you push beyond that which is comfortable and allow your body to improve its tolerance in terms of strength and endurance.  From there, the physical and mental benefits are tremendous.  You sleep, work and look better.  But, most of all, you feel better.

What about the scale?  It really makes no difference what the scale reflects, how well a favorite pair of pants fit, how many people notice your new body, etc… All that really matters (and all that will really encourage you in the long run) is how you feel.  Exercise provides that feeling immediately!

That’s results!

I think we’ve all been there back in the day when we smoked our first joint, and then some, (sorry mom)–hacking, coughing, and choking on the herbaceous weed.

As an LGBTQ+ patient, you should be able to expect the same high-quality care provided to all patients. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily always prove to be the case. There remains a notoriously significant disparity in healthcare outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, often related to issues with discrimination among providers.

Even when you find a good physician, this doesn’t mean that everyone interacting with your healthcare information will be as respectful or responsible. It is, therefore, important to be vigilant about how your data is handled. You have a right to privacy just as you have an expectation of fair treatment.
