Which yoga class is for me?

Many people think about starting yoga at some point. Whether it’s for the physical results, the mental benefits, or simply wanting some alone time each week, you’ve possibly thought "I should give yoga a try.” But once the seed has been planted, we are then faced with finding a studio, a class and a teacher. Looking at the timetables of just a handful of studios will demonstrate the huge variety amongst class styles and approaches. W...

Many of us spend much of our day hunched over a desk which leads to weakness and immobilisation in most of the bodies joints and muscles. One of the most common complaints is that of tight hip flexors. The hip flexors (when seated) remain contracted in a shortened position for 7 hours+ of typical day for an office worker, which can lead to back pain.

These muscles including the sartorius, the psoas major and iliacus but to name a few are th...

2017 has launched and with it a barrage of New Years resolutions, some lofty, some sensible and some outrageous but generally all with the motive of improving lifestyles through curbing a bad habit or adopting a good one.

Over the Christmas break I bumped into friends and family I hadn't seen in a while and the gym, training and nutrition came up quite a lot but generally from those who have been actively involved in fitness. Then a common theme kept coming up....

You didn’t really need that extra round of drinks or the “go large” option for an extra 75 cents did you?

“No, but isn’t that what Christmas is all about? Letting your hair down, relaxing with family and friends; to eat, drink and be merry?. Anyway, January 1st is just around the corner and this is my time for fresh start”

Many people I train come to me to help them lose body fat and improve their body composition. Through my education and professional experience I have learned a huge amount on the subject but until just over a year ago, I didn’t have first hand experience of training to lose body fat as the primary goal.

We are not wholeheartedly to blame for this, however, it is not completely beyond our control.

For millennia, our bodies, by design, have sought to expend as little energy as possible and remain in a relatively constant or stable state of energy expenditure in an effort to preserve life (also, our ancestors were a LOT more active)

It was established in the mid-1800’s t...
