This means that half the people you know in 2050 will be really fat! And you could be one of them unless you take action.

How A Personal Trainer Can Help You

I get a lot of e-mails from people asking me what personal training entails and how it will help their fitness. So I thought I’d write an article to explain the benefits.

Getting Started In Health and Fitness

Today I’d like to talk about getting started in health and fitness, we all have to start somewhere, I remember the first time I was in the gym, I was nervous, unfit, self conscious and didn’t have a clue what I was doing. These days I walk in the gym, chat to the staff, say hello to a few of the regulars that I see all the time, I’m fit and I know exactly what I’m doing for a workout that day. This all came about by using progressive fitness goals. The first few weeks of going to the gym
