Plyometric training is mostly used for Sports men and women to enchance there game.
The look on 80% of my clients faces when I get the boxes out, is normally devistation!! But as you know I do everything for a reason.
But there is still massive benefits for your average 'gym goer'!
The muscles in the legs are engaged and developed. This leads to gains in lean muscle mass in the legs, which in the make them stronger and more effective.
It also increases your ability to burn calories at rest and increase your metabolic rate.
So next time your in the gym get off the stationary bike and give some box jumps a try ;) xxxx
How many times have you found yourself hungry during your working day?
How many times have you not taken any food with you to work and nipped to the shop for a 'snack', you grab for the quickest and easiest thing ie a bag of crisps, chocolate or a calorie ridden pastry?
We are all guilty of it, that's why I constantly tell my clients prior preparation for the day ahead is so important to steady eating and weight loss.
The trick is to work out how many meals and snacks you will be away for the following day and take enough food to cover for the day in Tupperware boxes.
Basically you need to become the Tupperware queen!!
For example in my Tupperware Tower today I have:
Breakfast 2 hard boiled eggs and spinach
Lunch: Chicken salad with Feta and Balsamic Vinegar
Snack: Plain Nuts
Andd finally dinner: Turkey Chilli Con Carne with sweet potato wedges.
I will have another snack when I get home, and most normal people working 9-5 will not even have to bring that much.
I hear all the time I don't have time to cook or I'm too tiered to cook when I get in. It's just another excuse, I get up for work at 4.30am and get back home about 10.30pm. So for your average working hour, working people you have plenty of time :)
Even cook on a Sunday and freeze.
Just don't let yourself be caught short :)
Much Love xxx

So... Wednesday saw the end of this months spin playlist, so that's me looking for some more amazing tunes for Junes playlist.. Any suggestions most welcome!
My Wednesday class did amazing this week, finally everybody was in with the beat and really adding on that resistance! :) well done!
Remember if you don't apply the amount of resistance the instructor asks you to, the only person who you are kidding is yourself!!
We know who our hard workers are ;)

Here we go....
I have promised my partner in crime (my social media buddy, Alice) I shall become an absolute blogger.... Considering I struggle to update my Facebook status more than once a month, this could be interesting.
So, that aside, thank you for visiting my site. I am going to start with a bit about myself and why I do what I do. My name is Linda and I am a 27 year old personal trainer working in South West London.
I have spent the last ten years of my life serving for Her Majesty's Armed Forces, even though I had the time of my life, I decided it was time for me to settle in one place and do something I was even more passionate about. I would love to say this is the part where I tell you I have been a 'into fitness my whole life' or ' I am the Olympic javelin runner up 1972' ... afraid not. About ten years ago I did not even own a pair of trainers, overweight with no clue about fitness and thought if I had salad with my kebab on a Friday night I was being healthy, eventually peer pressure found me, I let a few harsh comments get the better of me, then three years later I got diagnosed with severe Bulimia Nervosa. My warped vision on my body, my health and everyone else's perception led me into self-destruct, my wake up call came four years later when the doctor kindly informed me if I carried on the way I was going I would be dead by 30.
So some might say my gym obsession started out as a coping method in my recovery process, maybe it still is. Walking in the gym the first time not knowing a thing 20 times more paranoid than most, leaving in tears because I felt everyone was staring at me, thinking is it because I am fat? Is it because I am doing this wrong? (In all fairness I was 6 1/2 stone at the time.... see warped!!) But the more I have learnt about fitness and nutrition the more and more I meet my clients (which I have to brag, are probably the most amazing group I could wish for) who are constantly coming through the door too worried to venture off the cross trainer, never mind go within 10 feet of the testosterone pit that is the weights bay...therefore will never reach their full goals or potential, all because they are worried what people may think or that they don't know what they doing. It’s such a shame.
My goal is to make sure every person I train has that 100% confidence by the time we are done to step into that gym, no worries, and feel comfortable and competent and love the skin there in.
So now that's the long part out the way I look forward to sharing my days, workouts and nutritional advice with your lovely selves.

My Goal... to make people happy with the skin they are in. To make the best of what they have got.
