ARE WEIGHTS BETTER THAN CARDIO?

 This is one of the questions I get asked most as a personal trainer. Cardio has many benefits, including those related to weight loss, recovery, and it can even help you relax and sleep better. But if you’re looking for the fastest path to dropping a few extra pounds, here’s why prioritising weight training is important.

You want results as fast as possible with the least amount of work needed. Not to mention, you might not have time for a little extra cardio. If you had to choose between weights and cardio, weights would be the more direct approach.

FAST, FUN, HOLIDAY WORKOUT

The Easter holidays can represent a challenge for many on fitness journeys. Eating, drinking and socialising goes up, and our activity levels tend to go down. But this doesn't have to be the case. We suggest you make allowances for the fact that it's Easter and that things are going to be different. Have a glass of water for every glass of alcohol, watch out for high-calorie mixers with drinks and say no to salty nibbles. Many people head away over the Easter break, which can actually present a great opportunity to mix up your routine a little. Consider choosing a few new activities you're keen on and giving them a go. Be adventurous.
