Losing weight with the help of a personal fitness trainer

Anyone with any knowledge of the body and its functions will tell you that the higher your metabolism, the more energy your body demands, therefore the more fat you will burn.  The proven and most effective way of increasing your metabolism and therefore losing fat, is by increasing lean muscle. The most effective way to achieve this is through a weight training programme that focuses on weight loss.  read more >>

Take the pain out of exercise with a personal trainer

No pain – no gain. If we had a pound for every time we’ve heard that phrase, we’d be well off. Yet, as personal trainers we’d have to say that it really doesn’t stack up. If exercise causes you pain and leaves you with stiff muscles the day after training, then you’re not doing something right. Pain is the body’s way of telling you something is wrong. It might be that your stiffness is caused by your posture, the type of exercise you’ve been doing or simply not exercising in the correct way: whatever the problem might be, you can avoid it by using a qualified personal trainer. read more >>

You might choose to go to the gym to exercise in an attempt to get fitter and maybe even stronger, but if you repeat the same exercises night after night, your body will soon start to revolt. Now it doesn’t matter whether you’re looking to build muscle or lose weight, the same rationale applies. read more >>

It’s probably true, but we make no apologies for that. Any home trainer will tell you that if you want to be in optimum health, then you need to make sure you have balanced diet and fitness, and you also need to exercise on a regular basis. This isn’t new information by any means: in fact, it’s common sense when you think about. We’ve known for centuries that fitness and nutrition are interlinked. read more >>
