Powerful plant based proteins

With so many different sources of protein available to you these days, it’s hard to know which one best suits your needs. Protein supplements can be used for those looking for higher levels of protein in their diet, weight loss, muscle building and general wellbeing, so it’s important you understand the benefits of your protein source to achieve the results you want.

 Protein basics

Protein provides the structural or building blocks for your body. Protein is vital for many of your body’s functions including:

  • repair and maintenance of cells
  • creation of hormones, antibodies, neurotransmitters and other important compounds
  • regulation of metabolism
  • energy production

 Once digested, protein is broken down into amino acids to be utilised by your body. There are 20 types of amino acids, consisting of non-essential amino acids and essential amino acids. Non-essential amino acids can be produced by your body, whereas essential amino acids can only be obtained through your diet. All amino acids have different functions in your body.

10 Reasons to RETHINK your next workout and become one of the crowd.

Attending a group fitness class can be a daunting prospect for any gym attendee. The idea of having to commit to a certain time, step outside your comfort zone and sweat it out with a room full of strangers is not exactly on most people’s bucket list.

The truth is that group fitness can benefit you in many ways and is actually a lot of fun! Classes help keep you motivated, can become a social event and are great for making new friends who also enjoy staying fit and healthy. After reading the definitive top ten reasons for joining a group fitness class you will realise why all your friends attend 45 – 60 minute classes religiously and find yourself thinking “why have I never given this a try!”.

 The reasons are as follows:

 1.   CORRECT INSTRUCTION - Correct technique is vitally important in any workout to prevent injuries and to help you achieve maximum results. A group setting is great if you feel intimidated to use particular equipment or ask questions as the instructor will always advise you on what you need to know to get started.

 2.   MOTIVATION – Exercising with a great instructor whilst standing next to someone else doing the same workout could be what you need to motivate yourself to go that little bit harder each class.

 3.   SOCIALISATION – Being in a group has a great social aspect to it and is a more engaging experience than exercising on your own.

 4.   COST EFFECTIVE – Personal training sessions can cost you up to three times more than a single group fitness class. This means for the same amount of money you are able to attend a few group fitness classes a week.

 5.   CONSISTENCY IN YOUR ROUTINE – At your local fitness centre they will have a current group fitness timetable so that you can choose classes that suit you and your availability. This allows you to take part in a variety of fitness classes while forming a weekly exercise routine.
