As a personal trainer, I'm in and out of gyms all day. Something I've noticed lately is the emergence of an 'athleisure trainer'  being used instead of a bona fide sports one.

Be aware: fashion trainers might look cool and stylish, they might come in more colours and styles, they might even cost less, but - in the main - they are not suitable for working out in. 

That's because they're not made for athletic functionality or to help prevent injury. 

The grip on the bottom is likely to be inferior to fashion ones and the cushioning and support at the rear of the shoe is unlikely to be suitable for supporting the ankle and instep - particularly if you're running or jumping. Also, the impact on joints will be greater, which is a classic pathway to knee and hip problems.

Also, the materials and fabric used in fashion trainers are often 'hard', inflexible, heavy and without wicking to help release heat and moisture.

If you're an athleisure-trainer-wearer in the gym, it might not be your fault. When you walk into the trainer section of a sports store, the two varieties are often not de-lineated and if you ask a member of staff, they don't always know the difference.

So, do your research before you part with your money. Once you've worn your trainers (whatever type they are) you won't be ale to return them.

D‚Äčon't Run Out of Steam

So much has been written about coronavirus and how to keep fit while we're locked down. So much information, so many You Tube videos, so many Instagram posts and so many people to like, follow and watch. It's overwhelming and exhausting - and that's before you've even done any exercise.

 My advice is this: find a type/s of exercise that works for you and keep doing it. Change it when you feel your body's got used to it or when it gets boring, The most important thing to do is keep going during this period. Those people who maintain an exercise regime throughout lockdown are the very people who are likely to remain committed when this is all over. They are the people who will stand out and flourish back in the gym/exercise classes and they are the people who will be able to feel proud of themselves from a fitness perspective for a very long time.

YES, fruit is good for us and we should be eating it as part of a healthy diet. Fruit contains nutrients, minerals, fibre, water, anti-oxidants and many are low calorie.

But beware, some fruits are better than others in terms of their sugar content and if you're looking to reduce your sugar intake and/or lose weight, then be careful which ones you choose.

Fruit sugar (also known as fructose) is better for you than refined sugar found in processed products such as biscuits and cakes, but it's sugar all the same and the body doesn't differentiate in terms of how it's used or stored.

And, if there's one thing that nutritionists, doctors and scientists agree on, it's that we should limit out sugar intake as it can contribute to many serious health conditions such as obesity and diabetes.

Here are the top ten fruits with the highest sugar content:

grapes, figs,  lychess,   bananas,   mangoes,   cherries,  raisins,  persimmons,  plantains,  pomegranates.

Here are the top ten fruits with the lowest sugar content:

raspberrires,  blackberries,  grapefuit,  watermelon,  strawberries,  currants,  cranberries,  papaya,  rhubarb,  loganberries.

Food for thought eh?
