Miqdam bin Madikarib said: “I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) say: ‘A human being fills no worse vessel than his stomach, It is sufficient for a human being to eat a few mouthfuls to keep his spine straight. But if he must (fill it), then one third for food, one third for drink and one third for air.’” (Sahih)
Many men lead busy lives that call for them to hold down 30-minute workouts because that’s all the time they can give to training each day. To me, that’s great going without a doubt seeing that the larger population of the UK are inactive, may possess a gym membership, have the ability and time to exercise yet don’t find themselves giving any time to training.
As a student of Personal Training, I’ve come to learn just how important physical activity is to our lives. If you want to investigate statistics on body dysmorphia, obesity and the sedentary state of the UK public you can do that to see just how necessary change is for our society, communities and our families.Continue reading “My road to PTing is just beginning”
Kettlebell training as you may have heard is a convenient and powerful way to train for strength and weight-loss. The beauty of KB training is that you’ll recruit more stabilising muscles which wouldn’t usually get a look-in as compared to regular dumbbell and barbell movements.

If you’re a serious Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and/or MMA competitor that has his or her eye on the prize with goals of filling the Copper Box year after year, you need to eat to win which you’ll hear again and again. Yes, the hard work is in the hours of drilling and putting together your own unique play box but if you neglect your diet you neglect the engine that needs to be optimised for game day.
Spring is fully in session and those frosty mornings with beaming sunlight are here again. With the new life emerging comes a renewed desire to get healthy and engage in exercise for many of us.

The times we live in are tough and as the reality of the current economic squeeze on family finances becomes more evident, more measures need to be taken to cut costs for many families. As Husbands, fathers and sons of the household, it is usually up to us to bring the bag home and so we start to cut out the unnecessary subscriptions and unneeded purchases. But, should your fitness be on that list to get the cut? Are there other options to consider instead of a gym membership? In this post, I’d like to talk to you about how you can maintain your fitness while we chart these recurring and turbulent times with the help of a pair of trainers and a kettlebell.
e fitness and sporting worlds look very inviting, especially to the youth. No doubt, fitness and sport should have a place in all of our lives in some form or another but for the majority of people that take the pursuit of training, exercise and sport to be a career there will be very little acclaim to their name. In this post, I’d like to explain why personal training isn’t for you if you want to get to the bag and why you need to put a passion for helping people before getting to the bank.
How many days do you have? I know like you know that the next hour isn’t guaranteed for any of us but while you’re breathing and have the luxury of limbs to help you strive in good deeds it’s important to take care of the body you’ve been given. I know the struggle of work/ family/ study life, picking up a quick meal that you find enjoyment in is no crime but as weeks turn into months and the exercise equipment you have gathers dust, time only moves faster and the strain you put upon your body also increases.
