Gyms, sports facilities and leisure centres across the UK were forced to close their doors when the latest lockdown was announced on 4 January.

Five New Year's Resolutions for Personal Trainers

No one could have predicted what was going to happen in 2020. As the world was hit by COVID-19, businesses of all sizes were left scrambling to adapt and still be able to generate money.
 
The fitness industry and personal trainers (PTs) were no different. Many managed to move their services online, coaching or teaching through video platforms and social media channels, but, sadly, some very good PTs may have been left behind.

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

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.
