Brrr….ring on the exercise: Tips for exercising in cold and icy weather

As the mercury continues to drop, you may be finding it harder to keep up your exercise routine. Colder weather means getting out and about takes a lot more motivation than it does during the warmer months. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Many of our customers struggle to keep active in this weather too.

Boxing training for fitness…biggest benefits!

With the start of 2019, and the inevitable resolutions to get fitter and healthier that come with the advent of a New Year, we’ll see an increase in gym members looking to increase their physical activity levels. However, not all forms of physical activity are created equal. Boxing is one of the most physically demanding sports on your lungs, heart and muscles. If you can make it through the blood, sweat and tears, you will be rewarded with health benefits ranging from a longer life expectancy, less stress and more muscle.

How to make (and keep) your new year fitness resolutions

2019 is here! For many, fitness goals will be top of the list. In fact 38% of UK adults will vow to ‘exercise more’, with 33% saying they want to lose weight and 15% wanting to take a more proactive approach to health (according to CommRes).

Weight loss: you are much more than a number on the scales

The truth about fitness and veganism

The 1st November is World Vegan Day, a day when we generally see a rise in the number of people who identify as vegan. A recent survey suggests that there are now around 3.5 million vegans in the UK, up from approximately 540,000 in 2016, meaning that 7% of our population are now choosing to live their lives free from animal products. This is now a significant number of people and a rising voice for the future. But why do so many people choose to become vegan?
An obvious reason for veganism is the cruel and inhumane conditions for mass-farming animals for foods and other products. However, a large portion of this shift can be attributed to people choosing to benefit the environment. It has been said that your food carbon footprint can be reduced by 73% if you choose to eat a vegan diet. If everyone in the world as to switch to a vegan diet we would free up farmland equivalent to the size of the US, China, Australia and the EU combined and this would have a massive effect for our environment!
