Caffeine

Many people use caffeine as a stimulant to wake them up, give them energy and keep them going throughout the day. Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, alleviating fatigue, increasing wakefulness, and improving concentration and focus.

Muscle mass vs body fat

Posted by on 30 September 2013 | 1 Comments

Muscle consists of thousands of fibres and is denser than fat so even though 1kg of muscle and 1kg fat weigh the same, muscle will take up less space. This is why a person with a lot of muscle and minimal body fat can potentially weigh more than a person with little muscle and more body fat. You can’t always judge a book by its cover! Someone who is quite heavy can actually be healthy in terms of low body fat percentage. Weight is not an ideal measurement, unless of course it is clear that an individual is obese and has health risks.

Emotional eating

Posted by on 26 August 2013 | 0 Comments

We don’t always eat simply to satisfy hunger. Sometimes we turn to food for comfort, stress relief or as a reward. Boredom, loneliness, anger, anxiety, frustration, stress, relationship problems and poor self-esteem can result in overeating which can lead to unwanted weight gain. Unfortunately emotional eating doesn’t fix emotional problems and it can sometimes make you feel worse because you will feel guilty for overeating.

Why is sleep important?

Posted by on 26 August 2013 | 0 Comments

Sleep, like diet and exercise, is important for our minds and bodies to function normally. Sleep is vital for the tissues in the human body. When you're in a good sleep, your body temperature lowers, which conserves energy, meaning your body can concentrate on tissue, growth and repair.

Star client - Heather

Posted by on 26 August 2013 | 0 Comments

I have been attending Saturday morning MBM classes for about three years and I had a stint in Run Club around the C2S 2011. Some minor injuries really killed my motivation and I virtually gave up on regular exercise. With no enthusiasm and no exercise I started to put on some extra weight. I had lost any of my previous fitness and I didn't feel proud of myself.
