How Well Do You Know Your Gut?

How Well Do You Know Your Gut?

What a book, where to begin?  The book provides an insight into the body’s organ and all the systems that works together with the Gut.  Engaging the reader with an explanation as to why we should pay more attention to the gut and how it can aid our health.  There is discussion about the lack of interest in this organ, lack of understanding, embarrassment almost over the organ and the digestive system.  You know ladies don’t actually poo right?!  It’s all roses..

When I saw Amelia Freer release the 10-day plan and the focus of the book, I thought this would be a good book to try. The mission is to introduce the reader to a healthy nutritional balance, rather than diets.  It challenges how you think about food, forcing you to evaluate yourself and how you respond to food.

Instructors should cherish the New Year Resolution clients

Every January, Gyms and Fitness Clubs throughout the country become busy as thousands of people with good intentions join up hoping to make some changes to their lifestyle.

The sudden growth in numbers attending is often greeted with annoyance by existing regular members who find it challenging if they can’t use “their” regular equipment of access ”their” regular classes.

Instructors can often view this increase in numbers with cynicism as their experience shows that these people won’t be there for very long.

A day in the life of a tutor

A day in the life of a tutor..

I absolutely love teaching, I have learnt something new from every group I have taught. For 10 years, being in the studio all day, music on, sharing a passion with an excited team of budding new students, starting their journey in their new career choice.. I can't say it's always fun, sometimes very challenging and even emotional but I wouldn't change any part of my journey.

The only thing that I do find very common on my courses and really gets me analysing...

Fitness Instructors needing to follow their own advice!

For someone who works in the fitness industry lately I have spent a lot of time sitting down. Administration catch up (too much paperwork to be healthy) and driving. On the plus side I get to see beautiful parts of the country but the down side is sitting in the car for hours. It would be wonderful if Fred Flintstones car really did exist; you would get a great workout!

Lately I have found it difficult to do the recommended amount of daily activity needed for health.

Shaping The Fitness Industry

CIMSPA will have a difficult job in getting REPs members to move over. I have a lot of contact with instructors who are only members because their employers insists they must be on the register. Others have either never joined or left. The main reason for leaving is they felt they did not get anything in return.
