There are a lot of weight loss programs out there. There are some that specialize in the meal portioning aspect of weight loss, some that focus solely on physical activity, and some that do a little bit of both. BionicGym focuses primarily on weight loss through physical exertion, though it is a bit unconventional. It’s not your typical exercise, which makes some people wonder, who would benefit from BionicGym? Though my short answer is that anyone could see benefits and exciting results from BionicGym, there are definitely groups of people who would appreciate it more than others. Here’s my list of the people who would be most excited by this weight loss tool.
Injured Athletes and Others
One of the most frustrating things about being injured is that you lose a lot of the progress that you made when you were active. And although your body needs rest, it can be detrimental to your health to be laying around too much. This is why BionicGym is one of the handiest tools for injured athletes or anyone who is injured but wants to keep in good shape.
When you are an athlete, you get used to eating a certain number of calories in a day to keep up with your energy needs. Even if you are eating all healthy food, if you are eating foods that are high in calories and not exercising, you will gain an unhealthy amount of weight. It can be particularly hard for athletes to adjust their eating habits to their new normal.
Athletes also tend to need to get back to their active selves quickly after having an injury, especially professional athletes. Even abstaining from a week or two of exercise can be a huge setback for a professional. This is why BionicGym is helpful for them. You might not be lifting huge amounts of weights, but at least your cardio will get a good workout and you can keep extra calories off your body at the same time.
Other Injured People
Of course, this doesn’t just apply to professional athletes. Normal people who have injuries need to keep their health up too. Especially if you are restricted to a bed or a chair, it is important to get your heart rate up every day. This doesn’t happen easily if you are stuck in one place. It is even more difficult when you cannot move your appendages. If you have any kind of major injury, BionicGym is the best tool for you to help yourself stay in shape.
You can sit or lay down and still sweat. This can help to boost your recovery when it is time to start moving around again as well. If you keep your heart rate elevated a few times a week and lose some extra calories, that is that much effort that you don’t have to expend when you are on the road to recovery.
Many people who have sustained an injury, whether it keeps them isolated to a bed or just restricts their daily movements a little bit, commonly experience some kind of depression. There are many reasons behind this, but one of the reasons is that they aren’t getting the endorphins that they are used to getting from exercise or even from getting outside in the sunshine. The result is a depression that can be hard to pull themselves out of. Exercise is so important to mental health, and the great news is that it doesn’t matter what kind of exercise you get. You don’t have to do Zumba or Crossfit to stay happy. Those might be your favorite activities, but you can get the benefits of endorphins from any kind of exercise.
Overweight People Under 300 Pounds
According to the CDC, in 2017 42.4 percent of people were obese in America. This is an astounding number and there are a lot of reasons behind it. Obesity is one of the main causes of health problems in America. It can lead to diabetes, organ failure, joint pain, and heart disease.
But getting on a weight loss journey when you are obese can be rather difficult. It is typically more complicated than just exercising every day and eating healthy. Many people who are obese have some pretty bad diet habits and these can be nearly impossible to break without some serious determination.
Studies show that when you start to exercise, you naturally want to eat healthier. There are a variety of reasons that could be behind this but some that I think are:
- You put a lot of effort into a workout and you don’t want to lose your progress
- Your body craves healthy food after a workout to repair the muscles that you worked
- Your self-esteem is greater when you take care of your body, which motivates you to eat healthier
Whatever the reason is, it is true that diet typically follows exercise. However, this isn’t always the case when you flip it. If you start a restrictive diet, you might remain unmotivated to work out. This is because some of those diet plans are so restrictive that it leaves absolutely no energy in you to even fulfill a workout. This is why it is important to work on exercise first, and then you can follow the cues of your body in your diet plan.
People who are overweight many times have a hard time starting their exercise plan because it can be really painful to start at first. If you have a lot of extra pounds on you, that is a lot harder on your joints and on your cardiovascular system. So it makes sense that people who are obese will feel discouraged at the beginning.
BionicGym solves this problem in a few different ways. Instead of making people feel discouraged and in pain from walking or running with several extra pounds on them, BionicGym offers a solution that will help people ease into exercise. They can start sitting or laying down and have absolutely no added joint pain from a workout. There is less chance of injury as well, which will allow overweight people to keep up regular exercise without needing to stop due to injury and ruining their progress.
Why Less Than 300 Pounds?
You might wonder why there is a restriction for what weight class BionicGym is effective for. It isn’t because the bands don’t come in large sizes. The bands are very adjustable for most weights. The reason why you cannot use BionicGym well if you are over 300 pounds is that the electric pulse needs to be able to access the muscle beneath the layers of skin and fat cells. If you have over 300 pounds, then it just won’t be as effective. However, there are rare exceptions for people who have a high weight but higher muscle to fat ratio.
Although you cannot use BionicGym while you are pregnant, some people who would really benefit from using BionicGym are postpartum mothers. BionicGym may not be dangerous to pregnant women or their babies but there haven’t been enough tests to know for sure if the eclectic pulses are detrimental. So if you are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant, discontinue use.
If you are a new mother, especially if you were active before having your baby, waiting the 6 weeks before returning to exercise can be very painful. Instead of having a cute little baby bump, you now have a squishy tummy that you hardly recognize. It can be almost painful for new mothers to adjust to their new normal and many are eager to try to get their bodies back to normal.
However, it isn’t recommended to start working out too early after giving birth. Your body can start bleeding again after the bleeding has subsided and this is a clue that your body isn’t quite ready for exercise yet. It is smart to start slowly with walks lasting no more than a few minutes at a time and building up from there.
When you have stopped bleeding, however, you can start doing BionicGym right away. You don’t have to worry about it affecting diastasis recti or your pubic synthesis. You don’t need to be concerned that there is too much relaxin in your body to do jarring high-impact workouts. This is the absolutely perfect way to get back into working out.
BionicGym is a convenient way to work out for anybody, but especially for new mothers. It can be almost impossible to leave the house when you have a newborn who depends on you. This is especially true if your newborn won’t take a bottle. You might feel isolated or feel like you have no options. You want to work out, you can even find the time, but you can’t leave your baby easily.
BionicGym can be done anywhere. You can do it on your couch while you fold endless piles of laundry or in bed as you feed your baby. You can do this workout and do one of the million tasks that you have to do as a new mom.
And if your body hurts too much to walk around? You can still do BionicGym.
One thing that you do have to be concerned about as a new mother is your calorie intake. If you are breastfeeding, you should be consuming an extra 500 calories a day. If you don’t then your milk supply might drop drastically. So while you might want to get things tight again, be more concerned with other goals like lowering your blood pressure or increasing your endurance. Make sure you are drinking enough water and getting enough calories so that your baby will get the amount of milk that he or she needs.
In the same vein as new mothers, single parents really benefit from BionicGym. It can be very difficult for single parents to consistently be able to leave the house and work out. Paying a babysitter every time you want to go to the gym adds up. There are some gyms that offer free childcare, but if your kid doesn’t like it there, it can be hard to leave them while you work out. It is also a great place for kids to pass germs to each other.
Also, many single parents want to be able to spend as much time with their kids as possible, especially if they have long working hours. BionicGym allows them to spend their workout time at home with their kids. They can do this workout after the kids are in bed or they can do it while spending time with their kids watching a movie or reading a book.
Work From Home Employees
Another demographic who loves BionicGym is work-from-home employees. It’s hard for anyone to find the time to go to the gym and work out, but people who work from home have the opportunity to take advantage of being able to work out from their desks while they are working.
While it is very convenient to be able to work out while you’re doing work at your desk, it can be challenging at times. For example, if you are trying to increase the intensity, then your body will start to shake pretty vigorously. When this happens, it can be difficult to type on your computer. So if you are someone who works on a computer during the day, you might have to adjust your tasks to work around this. Maybe you can do work that doesn’t require a lot of typing during this small period of time that you are working.
Another small fix is that you can wear ankle weights that will help your legs stay down more and not shake as much.
It’s pretty easy to see that BionicGym is a convenient option for anyone. So when you wonder who would benefit from BionicGym, maybe you should be asking who WOULDN’T benefit from BionicGym? Most everyone has been in the position where they have a gym membership but haven’t used it. Some people even have difficulty getting out of their gym contracts. BionicGym doesn’t require any contracts and it’s so convenient that there isn’t any excuse to not do it.
