    From my experience of working with clients, in order to help you achieve your health and fitness goals, the 3 key areas to focus on are training, nutrition and rest/recovery. However, a crucial component that people often overlook is rest/recovery. Rest days should form a vital part of your training programme. People often assume (wrongly) that you get stronger and fitter whilst training, for instance in the gym or going running. However, it is during your rest days (alongside correct nutrition) that you benefit from your work done during your training session - whether that be in the gym or playing sport for instance. It is only when you stand back and give your body (or certain areas of our body) a chance to recover and get stronger and...

    I often get asked - especially by ladies - "will lifting weights make me too muscular and bulky". The answer to this is no. To gain large amounts of muscle size (like body builders) you would need to do years of highly intensive heavy weight lifting and follow a high calorie surplus diet (consuming more calories than you are burning off) with supplements. For most of us however, by following an appropriate resistance training programme and nutritional plan, we will lose body fat and improve our muscular definition and body composition but not gain significant bulk and size. This is especially true if weight and fat loss is your goal because you will be in a calorie deficit, which means you will be burning off more calories than you are...
