December is here, the pre-Christmas season where everybody is jolly has started. Supermarkets, coffee shops and restaurants are all promoting festive menus and the irresistible Christmas spiced drinks and food that you can only buy this time of the year. Not to mention the increased number of festive social gatherings, from work parties through catching up with friends to family dinners.
A question that comes up often with both in-person and online coaching clients. I don’t blame you. When you Google that question, the range of answers on the internet and the amount of contradicting solutions are overwhelming even for me. This post will attempt to clear the air.
25 Minute Conditioning AMRAP Workout
What the heck is an "AMRAP" I hear you say. AMRAP means "as many reps as possible" and is a great way to test your conditioning, endurance and of course your mental toughness into your workouts.
There is a continuous debate going on between fitness professionals, celebs and even my clients keep asking which type of cardio workout one should do to get better and faster results on their weight loss journey. In this blog I will explain how they each work, what their benefits are and what advice I give to both my personal training and fitness class clients. Stay tuned.
Have you ever wondered how some people achieve amazing results, whilst others seem to try every method, diet and workout available and they struggle to shift the excess body fat or plateau after a while?
After taking a short break to recharge the batteries, Edinburgh's best outdoor fitness class is back. There has never been a better time to start your fitness journey and make that all important commitment to yourself to improve your health and lifestyle.
Eating out often is the biggest challenge when you’re trying to build new lifestyle habits, become healthier and lose fat. Normally there are two ways people approach this when on a “diet”: they either cut all social gatherings for a limited period of time so they can stay on track, or they don’t and use these occasions as “treat days”.
How To Calculate Your Macro's For Fat Loss
I would say that this is one of the key questions I get asked as a personal trainer. It's not as a direct question like the title suggests but it's phrased "How can I lose weight?"
A couple weeks ago I posted up a Fat loss calculator on my blog. This was a very basic and easy way for the readers to calculate their fat loss quickly. However, I felt it was not very personal and it only gave you a vary rough idea. It is my job as a personal trainer to provide you with as much information as possible to help you on your quest to be the best version of your self in terms of your fitness and lifestyle. So with out further adieu here's what you have been waiting for.
May's 30 Day Fitness Challenge
Welcome to the second 30 Day Fitness Challenge brought to you my CD Fitness Coaching. The 30 Day Fitness Challenge is an exciting and creative mix of challenges to test your fitness as well as your lifestyle in a positive manner. Based on feedback I received from the previous challenge I ran, there have been areas of this challenge that has been modified for your benefit. The challenge will start May 1st and run for 30 days finishing up on May 30th. The best part about the challenge is that It is absolutely FREE to do.
The challenge is open to the public meaning you do not have to be a client of mine to do this, it's open to anyone and everyone, invite your parents, friends, colleagues and anyone who you think may benefit from this.
Can you complete the 30 day fitness challenge?
Pimp Up Your Workout
To start with I think I should go ahead and give you a little warning. These are not easy workouts. They are meant to challenge you and will most definitely get the most out of them in a short space of time. So, if you have any time constraints like a lunch break, before the kids wake up or shortly after the school run these metabolic workouts will be perfect for you.
