When Friday comes around, it would be easy to relax your standards simply because ’its the weekend’, however, this 48 hour window equates to 29% of your overall week and what you do still matters.
If nutrition is unaccounted for and you frequently use this time to over indulge, it could be the difference between seeing the results you work hard for during the week and not.
As personal trainers we see clients work so hard for 5 days. Only for 1 or 2 days at the weekend undoing all the hard work.
Often the same nutritional habits you have set up in the week should carry over to the weekend.
Diets that are too restrictive may have an increased failure rate, a degree of flexibility is great, but too much and you risk losing sight of your goals.
Earlier this month two of our trainers undertook a massive 50 mile walk to raise money for Alzheimer's Society! Whilst the Proclaimers may have promised to walk 500 miles and 500 more, in reality we think 50 miles is a pretty impressive feat for a fantastic cause! We caught up with Vicky Young and Nathan Moseley to find out what inspired them, how they trained and what the day consisted of.
September is traditionally seen as the perfect time to make a fresh start, with a new season beginning, the fun but sometimes chaotic nature of the summer holidays behind us, and the kids being back to school freeing up more time to focus on you and put intentions into action.

A few months ago the London Marathon was postponed for the first time in its 39-year history. The latest in a long list of major sporting events that have had to take a rain check due to Covid-19, it has far reaching implications to both the athletes and charities involved. We caught up with TWPT Personal Trainer, Sam Rathmell, who had been training for the marathon for six months to find out more about the process of training for a marathon, adapting to it being cancelled and how even Personal Trainers sometimes struggle to motivate themselves to exercise!
“Make it fun, make it quick and make it safe”, TWPT’s Jamie Wagland shares his top tips for working out during lockdown
Heres some tips to help manage stress levels in a lockdown environment and maintain a good mindset,
This is Part three of TWPT's Health in lockdown blog series. Which focuses on how sleep is an important but often overlooked part of overall health. Sleep is so integral to the system that it can often be the easiest way to bridge plateaus if deficient. As a personal trainer, I often see plateaus in strength or weight loss overcome just by an improvement in sleeping habits. That step-up in weight lifted has sometimes just required a good night's sleep. Better control over the diet can be helped with improvements in sleep habits. Sleep can also, help make us more robust and deal with stressors more effectively.
Health During Lockdown
During these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever to try and look after both your physical and mental health, we may have lost a certain element of control in our lives, but we have traded that for a rare opportunity to reflect, learn new skills or take up new or old hobbies. Also, there's never been a better time - or motivator - to look after our health.
This is such a positive opportunity to reflect on our lifestyles and put new habits in place that will lead to better health in the long term.
In the second of our series of blogs, we look at the effect nutrition has on health whilst in lockdown.
Part three, will follow shortly, which looks at sleep. With the final part covering stress management.
