So long 2013...
Head of School, Paul Swainson, makes a timely observation about the 'energy in - energy out' relationship and the growing debate...
So we’re a week into 2014 and the resolutions have kicked in - and sadly for many may have stopped already!
With various reports suggesting the average Brit consumed between 6000 and 8000 calories on Christmas Day, it would seem obvious why many of us gain weight over the holiday period and choose the new year as the ‘perfect’ time to make a change to health and fitness.
There is, however, growing debate around the energy in/energy out relationship (just Google ‘is a calorie just a calorie’ and you’ll see what we mean) and this year this issue will be at the forefront of discussions amongst nutritionists, trainers and scientists.
The reason it’s such a hot topic is of course because diet and nutrition plays such a key role in both our well-being and appearance, and getting the right balance along with exercise, physical activity and other lifestyle changes is critical to achieving results. With that in mind, I'd like to congratulate our sister School of Nutrition for achieving certification under the Association for Nutrition of yet another course - Childhood Nutrition & Obesity Prevention.
2014 will see the School of Personal Training making significant developments to continue providing you with the expert training, resources and support you need to help clients reach their goals. With new courses, specialist advice and exclusive opportunities in the pipeline, it’s set to be an exciting year and we hope you join us to qualify, develop and excel to be the best you can be.
Wishing you a very happy New Year!
