If you want to get fitter you have to elevate your heart rate.
Resting heart rate is a good measure of improving your fitness as it shows your heart (which is a muscle too so don’t forget to train it) is getting stronger therefore doesn’t have to work as hard when you are resting.
Good ways to get fitter include running, cycling, rowing, swimming, high intensity interval training.
Lifting free weights is a great way to build muscle, strength & improve bone density. I enjoy the challenge of it. Free weights are not the only way to build strength. Body weight, machines and bands are all important to build a healthy body. BOOK NOW

It's also about how you feel. If you feel good about yourself & you feel like you are getting healthier and happier you will gain confidence.
Freedom of movement is important for everyone. It is also very different for everyone. In order to keep as mobile as possible your whole life, having a good daily mobility routine is vital especially as we get older. Spending too long sitting down working at a desk or sitting on the sofa can cause muscles to become tight and restrict your range of movement. This can lead to increased risk of injuries if you perform a movement beyond what a muscle has become used to. This is why daily movement is so important. Making small but constant progress is good, so if you have tight muscles stretch often and see how quickly you see improvement.
I am vegan & can help build muscle on a plant based diet. However, you don't have to be vegan to train with me. Although I am very passionate about veganism and the positive effects on the environment, animal welfare & your health I will not guilt trip you all the time for not being vegan yourself.

Scheduling sessions and setting days to train are great ways to ensure you are making progress. For some people classes or having a training partner gives them this accountability, someone to not let down. Having a personal trainer gives you a set day and time to get your session done. Pick whichever one works best for you.
