Our Students - Justin O'Halloran

I have had an interest in fitness from a young age and it's fair to say that it has always been a big part of my life. It was some time ago now but my career in the fitness industry started when I studied sports and exercise science and gained all the necessary fitness related qualifications that I needed at the time. I then looked for a way to work in the fitness industry and, as I had a keen interest in sports nutrition, ended up working in sales for a sports nutrition company and then moved on to sell health and fitness equipment. I built up my own company selling fitness equipment and then, off the back of its success, opened up a studio focusing on the use of power plates and kettlebell training. This allowed me to gain a wealth of experience working as a personal trainer, especially with regard to group training, which is something we specialise in at the studio.

Race Report - Gorrick

Sunday 26th Feb saw the traditional season opener for the team, The Gorrick spring series round 1 in Swinley Forest Bracknell in Surrey. Technically it was round 2 but the scheduled previous round had been cancelled due to snow and ice, a scenario not often seen in cycle racing! The day dawned sunny but cool this time .The event is a good opportunity to test the legs and see if all the hard work through the winter has paid off, or what else needs to be done to step it up ready for the bigger races to follow.

Does Fruit Make You Fat?

The old aged saying that your body is a temple is well known and still has relevance today. Without a solid foundation a temple cannot be successfully constructed and will eventually collapse. The same holds true for the human body.

Angela's Story - The Great Outdoors

Several years ago I was stuck in a vicious circle, I was fed-up and bored with my lifestyle, I didn't feel happy within myself and I piled on the weight. I would feel miserable about the way I looked and so would eat, either through boredom or to make me feel better. I tried all sorts of diets and yo-yoed between them and, although I would lose a bit of weight fast, it would go back on quickly and I would add even more. Finally I had decided enough was enough, I wasn't going to go up yet another dress size and was certainly not going to do another painful diet, and so it was time for a lifestyle change.
