I first started using the leisure centre when I moved here a few years ago. It has become so much more than somewhere for me to exercise, it’s my social hub. The staff are so friendly and for a small town the facilities on offer are fantastic!
If I train every day I'll get results quicker - that's right isn't it?When you're on a mission to get fit - who needs rest? YOU do! When you're training your body hard you should have rest days. Try to allow your body 24 - 48 hours recovery. If you don’t allow this time for growth and repair your muscles will fatigue and be more likely to get injured because they are unable to deal with the overload on your body Basically the results...
Which should I do first - CV or weights?Sometimes its tricky to know where to start! If you are trying to lose weight or trim down you will get faster results by doing a thorough warm up, then doing your weight training before your CV exercise Why? Because this way you will burn off any carbohydrates naturally stored in your muscles so when you come to the CV work, you are burning your fatty tissues at a much higher ra...
Will women who lift weights really bulk up?Nooooo! You'll get in really good shape - and you'll see results pretty quick too! Womens testosterone levels are much lower than men’s, so in most cases they are just not capable of building large muscles without supplementary support In fact, since muscle takes up less room than fat, women tend to lose inches when they strength train. So, ac...
Can you give me a few easy tips to help me feel healthier?There are a few really easy changes you can do to help improve your healthy lifestyle Why not take the stairs instead of the lift or escalators? If its a short journey why not leave the car at home and take a walk instead? Do you work at a desk? Try to take a short walk in your lunch break or why not get up every 20 minutes os so and grab a small galss of water - keep hyd...
Can I lose weight from a specific area if I exercise to target it?This concept is called Spot Reduction and unfortunately, it doesn’t burn fat! When you lose weight, you are unable to choose the area in which the reduction will occur. Your body predetermines which fat stores it will use. The best example is doing sit-ups, yes this will strengthen your abs but will not take the fat off your stomach. Similarly, an act...
Will my muscle turn to fat if I stop trainingIts easy to thinkg all of the progress you've made will just turn to fat if you stop training ... But the good news is this is essentially muscle chemistry and is literally not possible! Fat and muscle are two different types of tissue and cannot be converted from one to another. It's more due the fact that people who were once active and held a lot more...
Are saturated fats bad for me?It is easy to think that all fats are bad for you .... but are they?! The simple way to tell if a fat is saturated whether it is solid at room temperature. Saturated fats have been given a really bad rap by science that is now out dated and incorrect. Modern science is showing us that saturated fats in moderation can have the following benefits: • Improv...
Do I need to train to failure?There is a common myth that says you must train your muscles to failure every time in order to get a response from them This is not the case at all. Consistently training to failure places a high level of stress on the body. It can damage tendons and ligaments which over time can lead to injury. Failure also places a large amount of pressure on the nervous ...
