Do you have any idea why you're having trouble losing weight and becoming in shape? If your situation is similar to that of many guys, it could be due to a rigorous job schedule and lifestyle outside of the workplace. But you should also consider whether you're approaching challenges correctly. Julia Lohmann of Hypoxi explains how guys can approach weight loss and exercise strategically.
“Men have larger frames and higher testosterone levels than women do,” Julia says. “This means that they’ll generally be stronger and leaner. In addition, men have stronger bones than women. This larger frame means that they have relatively bigger hearts and lungs, and this in turn helps a lot with cardiovascular exercise.”
Julia believes that input vs output is vital when it comes to weight loss, but that body shape also matters. “Distinguishing which factors play a greater role is important to ensure successful and sustainable weight loss – being able to shape the ‘right’ areas,” she says. “Many men are more apple-shaped, where fat is stored around the waist, stomach and hips.”
She urges men to make time in their schedules. “In a city with arguably the most literal approach to the ‘work hard, play hard’ ethic, finding the time to stay in shape can be a real challenge,” she says.
Julia recommends Hypoxi's 30-minute training sessions with the Vacunaut pressure suit as one of the most effective ways to get in shape. During the workout, the suit exerts alternating pressure to the dermis, boosting circulation around the waist, stomach, and hip region. As a result, fatty acids in the abdomen area are more readily metabolised than in other parts of the body. “The Vacunaut targets undesired fat deposits through a unique combination of compression and vacuum therapy, and moderate fat-burning activity,” she says.
