The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is finally here! If you are one of the many people who have been training for months to challenge your body and mind this weekend, you my feel increasing excitement and anticipation, especially if you have never run a marathon before.
When you have a fitness goal you’d like to achieve, like losing X amount of weight or becoming leaner and having nice, shaped muscle tone, the first thing you should ask yourself is “why that goal is important to me”. Knowing the purpose of your fitness journey may compel you to stretch further in the process than you would otherwise do.
With minimum workout gear required and the best gym in the world right on your door-step there, jogging can be one of the most beneficial forms of exercise to make change to your health and fitness.
Saying that, jogging can be hard to make a regular habits. It's especially difficult for beginners to get into the "stride" (running pun) of things, which can leave you feeling disheartened and inevitably call it quits. All the good intentions you had are now a distant memory.
This is where we come in - I have designed this couch to 5k to get complete running novices off their sofas and on to their feet. You will see Edinburgh in a completely different light and run places that you never knew existed.
Going away on holiday or travelling for work doesn't mean you need to stop exercising. So what if your hotel doesn't have a gym? You need exercises that are simple, require minimal equipment and maintains all the hard work you put in before your trip.
By the end of this article, you will have a series of effective exercises for the poolside or hotel room plus a sexy workout routine to follow. Sounds epic, right?
You probably already know what stops you from achieving your health and fitness goals: nutrition or lack of healthy nutrition habits. Most likely you know what you should be doing but for some reason when it comes to making the choice you pick the wrong one.
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”.
I would like to start by saying we've all been there at some stage in our fitness journey. Always wondering when it would be best to start a new routine. We set off with good intentions but as soon as something comes up and blocks you from doing your gym session, that's it we stop and quit. My aim in this article is to help you build routine building habits for you to continue on your quest to health and fitness success and all it takes is to change one thing at a time.
We all live in a fast paced environment, where fitting in time to exercise can feel like more of a chore than a reward to ourselves. We are expected to work later and be at their desk earlier for no real reward. The company's we work for have us tied round their little finger or so it can feel at times. Well it's time to take some of that time back and feel good about being at work again.
