    How to stay healthy and active when you’re at work

    Maintaining a good work/life balance is so vital for your health and so is being active every day. Part of the reason why I love my job in health and fitness is because every day I get to move my body and be active and it makes me feel great.

    What are the health risks of losing weight too fast?

    I don’t believe in quick fixes when talking about health and weight loss. While it might sound somewhat appealing to be able to ‘drop a dress size’ in a week, the reality is that many of these crash diets can be dangerous, unhealthy and are not a sustainable long-term solution to weight loss. Extreme diets or crash diets can actually be counterproductive. Rapid weight loss due to unhealthy restrictions can leave a person feeling deprived, which can lead to a binge eating. Attempting to lose weight quickly can also have some potential health risks. Healthy weight loss is only achieved through sustainable lifestyle changes. That means ....

    How fast do you eat?

    Did you know that people who eat fast actually consume 50% more food that those of us who eat slower. This is because fast eaters take bigger mouthfuls and don’t chew their food properly. The gut then has problems digesting so much food so quickly and leads to heartburn, reflux and being overfull. How fast you eat can be influenced by different factors including if you are eating with slow or fast easters, how hungry you think you feel, if you have things to do after. Speed eating probably wouldn’t be so much of an issue if we didn’t have such easy access to far too much food. Early mankind possibly wolfed down his quarry in extreme hunger but ....

    Wearable tech

    As technology becomes smaller, smarter and integrated into everything, wearing it has become a social standard. Whether it's smartwatches, fitness trackers or even apparel, the tech you can wear to keep a record on your fitness level is more popular than ever. But with so many fitness gadgets on the market, it’s hard to separate the good from the not-so-good. Here are a few of my favs: Under Armour Gemini 3 RE smart shoes If you don’t trust strapping expensive wearables to yourself before plunging head first into fitness - where there’s a risk you could lose them, never to be seen again - there’s always the option of “invisible” ....

    Anyone get stitch??

    I would guess almost everyone at some point. It’s a pain in your side as you run or jump and when you get it I have to say it’s pretty inconvenient And I always get asked if I get stitch should i continue to exercise? Is it bad to run with a stitch or just uncomfortable? Believe it or not, the cause of a stitch isn’t completely understood. Medically known as exercise-related transient abdominal pain (ETAP), there are a number of theories when it comes to how stitches start. Some health professionals believe it could be a cramp in the diaphragm or a spasm in the oblique muscle. Another theory is it could be the result of irritation to the membrane (known as the ....

    What counts as progress?

    So many people I talk to about their health use body weight as the single measure to how well they have progressed and improved. I recently had a client I was speaking with and despite be really consistent with her habits over the previous few weeks, her weight hadn't changed as much as she would have liked, around 3-4 pounds. So in her eyes she was a little disappointed. This reaction isn’t surprising or unique however, when all you see if this person lost “10 pounds in 10 days”, or “drop a dress size in 3 weeks”. While it is ok to use scales and body weight as a measure of progress it’s not the only thing that matters. ....
