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.


Motivate for Exercise Success

Posted on November 11, 2019 at 9:45 AM

Exercise is tiring - for both the body and the mind. The key to keeping going is motivation. Find what works for you, but here are some tried, tested and proven ways:

1) Hire a personal trainer. Well I would say that wouldn't I?! But research shows when you have a professional pushing and supporting you (and giving you workouts that are bespoke to your needs) then going to the gym - and coming back time and time again - is a lot easier.

2) Set goals for yourself - be they daily, weekly, monthly or forever'ones. And write them down - maybe in a specific workout diary.

3) Visualise success. Imagine how you will feel and look if you get where you're aiming for.

3) Take progress shots. Seeing positive changes is motivational.

4) Variety is essential. Do different workouts, exercises and different reps and sets. This will relieve boredom and keep your body 'shocked' into progress.

5) Give yourself structured rewards - i.e  if you achieve 'x' you can have 'y'. A 'cheat' meal on a Saturday night IS something to look forward to, as is a new pair of Nike leggings (see no.7)

6) Take a break occasionally and don't exercise 7 days a week. You must have other things you need to do and the body needs time to recover.

7) Buy new workout gear. You'll be amazed how it can help get you to the gym and perform better once you're in there.

8. Workout before your day starts.You'll be energised, you'll feel good about yourself and you'll have got it out of the way - one less thing to worry about.

9) Find music that helps you through - for e.g download a new playlist that 'drops a beat 'and pumps you up.

10) Change your exercise environment. If you usually workout in a gym, take it outside. If you don't do group exercises classes, try one.
