Do You Yoga ?

After months without much activity, I am back to exercise (Can it happen to a Personal Trainer ? Reeaally ? Yes, indeed we are humans!). Well, I have found that mixing gentle movement with spirituality speeds up my recovery process and also helps me to have a clear and focused mind, as I want to go back into an active life.

True or False about Fat Loss & Exercise

  • « To lose fat, exercise has to be done on a empty stomach »

FALSE. It is highly individual. Some people are very sensitive and may experience hypoglycaemia. Those people should not worry about eating something before their workout. They will use it as a fuel anyway and their wellbeing and energy expenditure will be higher during the workout.

Urban Living: how to improve your fitness outside of the gym

Exercising is great. In order to maximise your wellbeing and reach your fitness goals,  get outside! 
  • Get some sun, but don’t get a sunburn. Light-skinned people should be exposed for 10 to 30 minutes a day around noon, while dark-skinned people may need up to an hour of exposure. Vitamin D promotes muscular strength. It helps regulate bone mineral density, protects again cancer, balances the immune system. If you can’t go much in the sun, consider seeing a nutritionist to help you fine-tuning a nutrient-dense diet including some appropriate suppplements.

Exercise and Chronic Health Issues

Some people have chronic health problems. What does it mean? It means that they are sometimes acutely sick and in severe pain for an indefinite period of time, and the rest of the time they are in a relatively good shape, or in other words “in remission”. Being in this state of apparent good health does not mean they can do everything they want. Actually, it’s highly individual. The common feature among these people is that they all need to adapt their exercise regimen accordingly.

7 Principles to Be Fit, Healthy and Happy

As a Personal Trainer, I strongly encourage everyone to exercise. Nevertheless, more and more I consider myself as a Holistic Personal Trainer, since I became aware of the fact that exercising on its own is far to be the unique answer to look good naked, have a flat stomach, look radiant, be fit and healthy And on top of that, we all want to be a Superwoman at work and at home with Hubby and the Kids.

How can you get this whole picture?
