There was a really interested study published about the remarkable effects of strength training which showed that just three seconds of resistance work a day was enough to cause measurable strength gains. Isn’t that incredible!

Now, before you start thinking you’ve found your new exercise routine, remember that this probably isn’t how you should exercise and this 3 second workout probably wouldn’t continue to provide improvements forever – but, this study does highlight the amazing effects of strength work.

It reassures you that if you were to create a routine of 45 minutes strength training even twice […]

Menopause seems to have come into the spotlight recently, and finally there is more good quality information available.

But, as with everything, a huge amount of information often overwhelms us. And while menopause certainly can be complicated, there are some key basics which are an important place to begin.

Self care is super important during menopause, and making sure we’re eating well and getting the right nutrients as well as adapting some lifestyle habits can provide long lasting benefits and make the transition through menopause easier.

So, here are four key things to put in place as the foundation […]

Benefits Only A Personal Trainer Can Provide

All the information you need in order to achieve all your goals in life – health and fitness or otherwise – is already available, for free.

The difficult bit is sifting through the huge amounts of information and deciding which bits apply to you, and how to apply them.

I’ve worked with so many people who feel like they know what they need to do, but haven’t managed to make it stick until we’ve sat together and put everything into a logical order.

This, I feel, is where working with a personal trainer is invaluable. I don’t think […]

When we’re aiming to lose weight and improve our health and fitness, there are few absolutes – but below, I’m going to share some good general targets to put in place to get yourself started.

You might find that you’re only falling short on a couple, or you might find that most of the areas could do with some work. Either way, brush up on the places which need attention and I think you’ll notice everything gets easier from there.

The reason we look at all these areas is because they all link together. For example, it […]

Stress – Is It Derailing Your Efforts?

Stress – our reaction to the things that happen.

We all deal with things differently. Something which is stressful for one person, doesn’t even register for another.

In the short term and in the right dose, stress can feel like it gives us a nice boost – we feel energised, clear headed, focussed and ready to take on whatever comes at us.

An overdose of stress can lead to some pretty big negatives – disregulated blood sugar, hormone disruption, reduced immunity, poor sleep, compromised digestion, a preference to store body fat… In short, too much stress can make it harder to reach […]

In last weeks email I explained that you must be in a calorie deficit if you’re to lose weight, and I discussed several factors which influence both the energy we consume, and the energy our bodies use. These factors can explain why one person might lose weight on a certain diet, whereas someone else might not.

I said at the end of that email that you could make many of the factors work in your favour, so today, I wanted to give you some proper action points. If we can increase the energy our body needs to just stand […]

If you’re not in your 20’s any more, this series is for you!

As we start to get older, our bodies become a little different – I’m sure you’ve noticed that since you left your 20’s, things just don’t work quite the same any more.

But, getting older doesn’t mean you can’t do the exercise you enjoy and be fit, strong, flexible and healthy. Often, we can become even better than when we were younger.

This said, there are definitely legitimate changes around how we should approach exercise as we start to get […]

Strap yourselves in for this one. It’s a bit of a long one, all about your feet – but I hope you find it interesting and helpful!

Unless we’re in pain, most of us rarely think about our feet, but the mobility and ‘posture’ of our feet is a huge factor in the way we move.

In fact, a growing percentage of us wear orthotics daily, hoping to reduce pain or correct foot movement or posture.

And orthotics can work. Supporting the arch of your foot does provide pain relief – but, they should only be a short term solution […]

I’ve recorded this email as a video as well. You can find it on Facebook or Instagram.

While there are a lot of constants in all programs written for weight loss (or at least there should be, let’s exclude weird faddy diets here!).

Any well designed weight loss focussed program should be based on real food, include some variation of resistance training and give some focus to the impact of lifestyle factors like stress management or sleep quality.

But when we start to look at the specifics, we see that knowing exactly where to focus your attention, how […]
