Why do so many people struggle with Fat Loss?

The practical application of fat loss is very well-researched. However, there are several key areas we see people make mistakes when it comes to long-term fat loss & weight loss:

Generic advice and plans that don't fit you, your lifestyle or your struggles
Using unsustainable & unreliable methods of dieting
Short term thinking when it comes to your fat loss goal
Rigid approaches that can't accommodate for the ebs & flows of life
Over restriction of calories
Not building a foundational knowledge of nutrition during the process
Solely relying on cardio as a means of exercise

How do we do things differently?

Our methodology for fat loss is more effective than what you've been used to here's why:

We work with you, not against you. Many fat loss plans go against every fibre of your daily needs and desires. This may work for a while, but our approach is built for and around you. We are giving you skills for life.
When you follow our process, you also learn training & nutritional skills. We cut through the misinformation and teach you exactly what you need to know.
We use science & our expertise to break through the plateaus you've previously experienced.
We track metrics the metrics that matter. Body compositional changes are important, but there is more to the picture.

We are your partner in this journey.

When you work with us, your relationship with your Trainer does not start and finish at the gym door. Some of the most valuable advice and guidance we give our clients is away from the gym floor.

Fat Loss FAQ's

What is the most effective way to lose body fat?

The most effective way to lose body fat is through a balanced, calorie-controlled diet and regular physical activity. Creating a calorie deficit by consuming fewer calories than your body needs and incorporating primarily strength training as well as cardio can help maximise fat loss.

Are there specific exercises that target fat loss?


While there are no specific exercises that target fat loss in specific areas of the body (spot reduction), engaging in strength training & cardio will help with overall fat loss. Most of our clients who have "stubborn areas" see marked reductions as a result of overall fat loss and body composition changes.

How long does it typically take to see noticeable fat loss results?

The time it takes to see noticeable fat loss results varies from person to person. 

It depends on factors such as your starting weight, body composition, diet, exercise routine, and overall consistency. Most of our clients see visible changes in the first 3 weeks in body composition and weight after the first 3 weeks of consistent effort.

Are there any supplements or dietary aids that can accelerate fat loss?

While some supplements or dietary aids claim to accelerate fat loss, it is important to approach them with caution. 

Many of these products lack scientific evidence or may have potential side effects. 

At Pioneer Performance, the only supplements we recommend to clients are those which have well grounded research in either improving performance or promoting overall health. Any supplementation we do recommend is purely optional, we don't sell supplements of any kind. 

Is cardio necessary for fat loss?

Cardio can be a helpful tool for fat loss, but it is not necessarily essential. Fat loss primarily occurs when there is a calorie deficit, meaning you consume fewer calories than you burn. 

While cardio exercises can help create this calorie deficit by increasing energy expenditure, it's important to note that diet plays a crucial role in fat loss and is much more reliable in its measurement. 

What's the difference between weight loss & fat loss?

Weight loss and fat loss are two terms often used interchangeably, but they have distinct meanings. 

Weight loss refers to a reduction in overall body weight, which can include various components such as water, muscle mass, and fat. While it can be important to use scale weight as a measure of progress, it doesn't paint a comprehensive picture on other aspects of your health.

Fat loss, on the other hand, specifically refers to a reduction in body fat while preserving or even gaining muscle mass. Fat loss is generally considered more desirable than simply losing weight because it leads to a leaner, more toned physique.

Can women build muscle as effectively as men?


Women can build muscle just as effectively as men. While women may have lower levels of testosterone, a hormone that aids in muscle growth, they can still achieve significant muscle gain through proper training, nutrition, and consistency. 

Women may also benefit from resistance training to improve bone density and overall strength.

Am I too old to lose body fat?


Age is not a limiting factor when it comes to losing body fat. While it is true that our bodies may undergo certain changes as we age, such as a decrease in muscle mass and a slower metabolism, it is still possible to lose body fat regardless of your age.

Fat loss primarily depends on creating a calorie deficit, which means consuming fewer calories than you burn. This can be achieved through a combination of a healthy diet and regular physical activity. While it may be slightly more challenging for some individuals as they age, it is still entirely feasible.

In fact, engaging in regular exercise, including both cardiovascular exercise and strength training, can help combat age-related changes by preserving muscle mass, increasing metabolism, and improving overall health. Strength training, in particular, is beneficial as it can help build muscle, which raises your basal metabolic rate and contributes to fat loss.
