Build your “new normal”
Don’t be beaten by lockdown!
On these programmes we will set out to change your body shape and improve your eating habits, enabling you to feel better about yourself and yes, see the number on the scales drop as a result of that process.
The programmes are divided into 3 groups of 6-week blocks each progressing and consolidating on the previous one.

what’s it all about!
The truth is that it is very few people can accurately guess a person’s weight just by looking at them even their own. So why then do we have this unhealthy obsession about how much we weigh?
The perception is that when looking in the mirror we see weight whereas we see shapes and sizes. Perhaps our approach about how we look has therefore been misguided and rather than focussing on weight we should be concentrating on our shape and fitness.
What’s your body type?
Simple Training Plans help you succeed without really trying
Strength training with free weights such as barbells and dumbbells, weights machines or with no equipment at all. Exercises that uses your body for resistance include abdominal crunches, lunges, push ups, squats, and step exercises.

What should i be eating ?
And when ?
Most adults say that they do not eat more, or even as much, as they did when they were younger. So why does the average adult add one pound of body weight every year throughout middle age?
Most people think that the addition of fat is a result of less exercise, however this is likely to be only part of the problem. Much more important than the calories that are burned through exercise are the calories that we burn at rest. As we get older our resting metabolism slows down every year. Due to the fact we are burning less calories each day some of the previously needed calories are placed into our fat stores.
calories in = calories out
The reason for the reduction in our metabolic rate is that we get older as we age, we lose about 0.5lbs of muscle each year, 1 pound of muscle requires about 50 calories to maintain itself. So, the real problem with weight gain is the gradual loss of muscle tissue.
Planning is the first step
High Intensity Interval Training describes any workout that alternates between intense bursts of exercise and fixed periods of less intense activity or complete rest.
HIIT is defined as repeated bouts of exercise at maximal intensity; the intensity reflects peak VO2 max with active rest intervals in between. (Note VO2max is the maximum amount of oxygen, in milliliters, one can use in one minute per kilogram of body weight. It is the standard measure of aerobic fitness.)

Therapy & Nutrition
Physical Therapy & Assessements
Calories are found in 3 essential ‘macronutrients’ namely the nutrients we need in larger quantities to provide us with energy.
Fat 9kcal per 1 gram
Protein 4kcal per 1 gram
Carbohydrates 4kcal per 1gram
The only other substance that provides a calorific value is alcohol which is often confused as a carbohydrate; however, it should not be as it is not needed for survival and is in fact the second highest calorie nutrient after fat containing 7kcals per gram.
WHAT ARE YOU EATING?
In phase 2 we look at the benefits of exercise.
Exercise can have both mental and physical benefits when carried out correctly; it can be a good way of letting off steam after a long hard day’s work. Exercise can also provide a strong mental approach to meeting targets along with the more well-known benefits of weight loss, improved stamina and muscle gain depending on your specific exercise program.
