Personal Training makes you look good and feel great. My role is to provide you with the tools for you to achieve this. If you are committed and have the desire, try your best, think outside of the box and have a bit of fun you can achieve your health and fitness goals.

    Who is up for a challenge? Who is ready to test themselves? For July, the #1MinuteChallenge is Squat Thrusts. Please see my 'Give it a Go - Squat Thrusts' exercise series. Squat Thrusts provide a great core workout, challenges your Cardiovascular System and works your lower body. The aim of the #1MinuteChallenge is to see how many reps of an exercise you can do in 1 minute with correct form and movement. As a minimum, aim to complete the #1MinuteChallenge at least once per week. Ideally, aim to complete it 3 times per week on different days e.g. 1 minute on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Even better, commit to doing the #1MinuteChallenge once per day as a way of getting active - as many of my clients do and followers on Twitter. It's a...

    If you are looking for a great tasting, low in fat and high in protein snack then look no further than Danio Yogurt launched by Danone. 3 different flavours of the yogurt that I have eaten (along with their nutritional values) are: Strawberry - 125 calories, 13g protein, 0.2g fat Passion fruit - 131 calories, 13.2g protein, 0.2g fat Blueberry – 159 calories, 11.9g protein, 3.8g fat Raspberry - 150 calories, 12g protein, 3.8g fat As a Personal Trainer, I am always on the lookout for nutritious, healthy and great tasting foods to complement my training and to recommend to my clients. Correct nutrition is vital because it gives the body what it needs for good health: in particular more energy, less weight problems, and less long term health...
