Your-Healthy-Eating-Regime-Can-Include-a-Treat-Day
Your Healthy Eating Regime Can Include a Treat Day

Can healthy eating include treats? Yes! Even fitness models use treats as a fat-loss strategy. Here's how it works. You might think that fitness fanatics eat nothing but lean protein and green vegetables all day long, seven days a week. That's the only way to get and maintain a shredded physique, right? Not quite. Many fitness fans enjoy a treat here and there, and some use treat meals to turbo-charge their fat loss. The case is that in 2017 a study took place by the International Journal of Obesity, which found that people who took a two-week break from the diets lost more weight than those who dieted consistently.

Fitness-Instructor-What’s-The-Difference
Fitness Instructor, Gym Instructor or Personal Trainer: What’s The Difference?

When entering the Health and Fitness industry, you’ll probably hear a variety of job titles thrown around and the ones you’ll hear the most are Gym Instructor, Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer. While all three of these career options sound similar, they are actually very different. Whether you’re looking to gain a Fitness Instructor qualification, or looking to apply for Gym Instructor jobs, these are both essentially the same thing. Fitness Instructor and Gym Instructor are simply two ways of saying the same role; it just depends on what the person in question prefers to be called. A personal trainer on the other hand is much different.

Work-Out-to-Help-Out
Work Out to Help Out

With the UK Government’s Eat Out to Help Out initiative now firmly a thing of the past, many companies and people are calling for a new Work Out to Help Out initiative! This was being considered by the Health Secretary himself and the possibility of subsidised gym memberships and personal training sessions were being considered, however with the country under stricter guidelines once again, these are no longer possible.

Blog Topics Related to Nutrition

To support the launch and release of our brand new Level 4 Nutrition course, we decided to take a look back at some of our blogs related to Nutrition to provide you with some key information surrounding the topic. 

It’s no longer a secret that the key to a healthy lifestyle is to ensure your body is consuming a well-balanced diet. It’s often hard to know exactly what you need, particularly if you don’t hold a Nutrition qualification, and it’s important to know that a balanced diet for women is different to a balanced diet for men and what those differences are.

Web-Developer-1
Why You Should Become a Web Developer

It may come as a surprise to you that in order to work in Web Development, you don’t actually need to be qualified to a degree level! What you will need, however, is to have technical, recognised certifications to your name. This, coupled with your knowledge of relevant frameworks and programming languages, will be enough to see you through the door at most companies.

How Personal Trainers Can Help to Tackle the UK’s Obesity Epidemic

Even before the Covid-19, Britain was facing a major health crisis – obesity. According to the NHS, around 1 in every 4 adults and around 1 in every 5 children aged 10 to 11 are obese, while 63% of the population, aged 18 or over, are either overweight or obese, equating to an estimated (and rather staggering) 35 million people! Worse still, by 2034, it’s predicted that 70% of the adult population will be overweight or obese. Looking at those stats, it’s no wonder that the UK has been branded “the fat man of Europe,” so what can be done about it?

What Businesses Can Do To Support Outplacements

COVID-19 has, and for many of us is, still having a profound impact on both our personal and professional lives. From working from home, managing home-schooling as a parent - right through to adjusting to a new, social normal. As a HR, Operations or Business leader this new normal has also created the unavoidable need to deal with very complex, emotional and sometimes distressing decision making.

Mental-Health
Best Apps for Mental Health 2020

The annual World Mental Health Day has just passed (10th October) and to recognise the importance of this day, we’re going to explore some of the best apps which can be used to combat mental health, in all its forms.

Mental health is an extremely broad subject and holds a vast array of conditions, so it’s important to remember there is no ‘one fits all’ solution. We will try our best to include apps that address more than just one condition as there are so many out there - from anxiety, to anger, to OCD, to depression - though, you should do your own research into apps that are designed with specific conditions in mind where necessary.
