Everything Health & Fitness.
For many people the idea of going to the gym is terrifying. We’re unhappy with our bodies, we know our fitness levels aren’t what they should be, and we worry about what other people will think. We don’t want to be on machines or lifting weight next to super fit gym bunnies who make us feel worse than we already do and so we just don’t go.
If you’re looking for advice on how to get fit and stay fit, you’re going to find a lot of conflicting information. There are so many different exercise routines and diets that all claim to hold the secret but one thing that pretty much all experts agree on is that increasing your metabolism is one of the best ways to stay healthy. When you increase your metabolism your body is far more efficient at using the calories in the food that you eat and burning them off so they don’t turn into fat on your body. That means you aren’t just burning energy when you’re exercising, you’re doing it all the time. These are some of the best ways that you can increase your metabolism.
You’ve probably seen people run triathlons and wondered how they do it. Eve if you consider yourself pretty fit, putting yourself up for something that requires you to swim, cycle and run without a break can seem like a challenge too far, but I firmly believe that everyone who is into health and fitness should try a triathlon.
For a lot of us, the winter months consists of cozying up warm with your loved one, drinking copious amounts of hot chocolate, and staying indoors. But, that’s not you, right?! The winter months mean pushing your limits in the extreme weather, and one of the best ways to do this is to go running, because you can feel the burn a lot more with those eternally dipping temperatures. But so many of us don’t run properly, and we could be putting a lot of pressure on our joints. So, with the marathon season slowly rearing its head, how do you really run?
