Christmas is fast approaching and we are all looking forward to the food and drinks during the festive season. However, it is easy to forget that our body weight creeps up at this time of year and we will all be regretting some of it by the New Year. Fear not, as our top mobile personal trainers in London are here to help you to increase your metabolism before the festivities start and to keep you from gaining the mince pie kilos. Read on to find out how we do it!
Losing weight doesn’t come easily. As one of London’s top mobile personal trainers, we understand this. We believe in a holistic approach to weight loss, because we know it is not about what one eats and how much one exercises, but in fact a look at the history of why and how you have come to need to lose weight. In other words we think it is as much a consideration of the mind as it is the body. They both need to work together to make a desirable change. In the case of many of our clients, that is weight loss.
TRX stands for total body resistance exercise and is a system that specialises in a form of suspension training. It is comprised of two straps with rubbers handles that attaches to a safe surface. It then uses body weight to perform what seems to be a limitless number of exercises from which maximum gains are made.
The TRX is a favourite among our London personal trainers.
Happy new year to you all! We at Chelsea Personal Training hope that 2018 has started well and that your new year resolutions continue to be going in the right direction. We thought a few inspirational fitness motivation quotes would be helpful for you if they are in fact spiraling towards negativity instead of rocketing sky high.
The number one reason our clients find our top London Personal Trainers is motivation to exercise! It is closely followed by the desire to lose weight. The quotes we love tackle both and we hope you love them too.
We offer what you are looking for.
If you’ve ever wondered what the number one reason is for hiring a personal trainer, it is motivation! (This is followed closely by wishing to lose weight). People often feel that they do not have the time or the know-how how to exercise. However, these reasons fall into the motivation (or lack of) category. This is why we recommend hiring a mobile personal trainer to tackle your motivation issues and get going with an exercise routine.
HIIT Training – is it all that jazz?
Unless you live in a cave, you will have come across HIIT - High Intensity Interval Training as a form of getting fit fast and staying fit for longer (because it is quick to do and less time consuming). So what is HIIT and is it as good as the attention it is getting? Personal trainers share their views.
Our London personal trainers are often asked what the difference is between Pilates and Yoga. In this blog we will define Pilates and Yoga. We will also describe the benefits of each practice to your personal training sessions. Furthermore we will give you examples of some of the exercises involved. We hope that this will help you to discover one or the other, or perhaps both.
We love to run, do you? It takes some getting used to but the benefits of running are numerous. One of the most popular reasons clients contact us is to motivate them because they would like to run but they do not know where and how to start.
Therefore, if it is something you have thought about starting to do, you have come to the right place to get you off the sofa and into London’s beautiful parks and outdoor spaces. Chelsea personal trainers will help you to get started on your first four week’s jogging/running with a mini plan below for the complete beginner. We will also outline the benefits of running.
Incorporating regular exercise into your daily routine is one of the most important parts of the day, as it relieves stress, releases the endorphins (the feel good factor) and helps to keep you in shape. However, some people underestimate the importance of re-fuelling with the right nutrients after working out. Re-fuelling your body plays the largest role in supplying your body with everything that it will need to repair, rebuild, recover and adapt to the strain you just placed on your muscles.
The initial feeling post exercise will be fantastic; you will feel full of energy and motivated in whatever tasks you may have at hand. However, directly after exercise your appetite could be lacking for a half an hour or so. Once this window has passed, ensure to feed your body with the nutrients it needs to build and repair your muscles. If you neglect your body from the fuel it requires to function efficiently the euphoric feeling will quickly diminish, as there will be nothing left in the tank, which will make you feel extremely lethargic. Think of it like a car running on no petrol – it cannot function!
