Get the body of your dreams - online!

Personal training, a service for the rich, famous and those with loads of time on their hands, right? Wrong! Personal training is continuing to go from strength to strength providing those with little confidence or know how with the skills and info they need to get results, fast.
 
Everyone aspires to a better them. Most people do even if they are not ready to admit it yet. The main problem however is what way to go about it. It’s all too easy to pop along to your local gym or health centre and sign on the 'tie me in for a year' dotted line, but then what? Maximising your time and financial investment are two key areas that will ensure success, along with having the option of working around your already busy schedule and the hottest way in which to do that right now is by training online!
 
One of the biggest reasons for people not investing in a personal trainer even though they admit their health would benefit from it is the cost.  Professional, high standard one to one sessions in London can set you back anywhere in the region of £80-250 per hour. If you think about how many sessions you will need per week, then the number per month etc. it soon mounts up and for the average individual the current economic climate just won’t allow it. But there’s no getting away from the thinking that health is our wealth and with lifespans increasing, it’s more important than ever to stay strong and healthy in preparation for it.
 
So, even though the number one concern for investing in personal training was the cost, it’s thought that out of all those who bought and paid for a gym membership, 80% never actually went to the gym. That’s a grand total of £37million each year us Brits waste on unused gym memberships! This is great news for big gym bosses but not so good for your bank balance or your waistline!  On a positive note however, its recently been shown that with new gym memberships up by around 8% between 2012 and 2013, its clear we as a nation, are still keen to improve not just how we look but how we feel.
 
So how can online training help me?  We all know by now that the Internet or World Wide Web as originally named is an ever-growing portal providing a continuous stream of new and exciting ways to reach and connect with people. But how do we make this work for us? By 'us' I mean those who have a message or product and those who want to hear about it. In December 1995 only 0.04% of the worlds population used the Internet but by December 2012 35.7% did. In Europe alone, between 2000-2012 the Internet saw an incredible growth in users of around 393.4%. The potential is very exciting indeed. 
 
The possibilities are endless and those who can see this are the ones who continue to succeed in supply and demand or the other way around if you are the one buying. The Internet is booming and with it are those who choose to jump on the bandwagon for the ride in cyber space! It changed forever how we communicate and do business, allowing specialist skill set to reach more people, faster.
 
So where does training and the Internet infuse? This is the exciting bit. Online training provided by a leading personal trainer fills the gap in the fitness industry, which is currently staring at us, where people need the help and guidance to do what’s right but also want the motivation, challenge and accountability to ensure it all happens when it should. If you are reading this you already have the equipment, knowledge and understanding to sign up, log in and use online training, its that easy.
 
But where’s the personal I hear you say? Well, the beauty of a well run online training company is that it will provide you with a bespoke programme and all the help you need to actually use it, and with live chat continuing to be a growing, accessible business trend, your trainer is only a click away. Other benefits include cutting out the 'middle man' greatly reducing the cost for you and your trainer, being able to train when you like without risking a hefty cancellation fee should you need to cancel and being able to keep track of and have access to your progress session by session.
 
So what does the future hold for online training and us? It will not replace the benefit and luxury of having your very own personal trainer physically with you but it will most definitely provide the same quality service and results for those who may never have been able to access such a service and with smart phones and iPads now a firm staple of most peoples trip to the gym, why not try it out for yourself? Its simple, just log on and work out!

Are you at risk of Type-2 Diabetes?

Type-2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes, accounting for 90–95% of cases. The prevalence of type-2 diabetes increases with age: in the UK, 1 in 20 people older than 65 years of age has diabetes, compared with 1 in 5 people older than 85 years of age. However, type 2 diabetes is increasingly diagnosed in children and adolescents. Many people have type-2 diabetes that has not yet been diagnosed. Risk factors for type-2 diabetes include obesity, lack of physical activity, history of gestational diabetes, impaired glucose tolerance, impaired fasting glucose, some drugs (e.g. thiazide diuretics), and smoking.

How to beat the 4 O'clock slump

Q.  Why should we exercise at lunchtime and will it help the 4 O'clock slump?
 
A.  Exercising during the day, especially at lunchtime, generally gives you greater potential to burn fat in the session. Insulin sensitivity is at its highest earlier in the day as well as during exercise and triggers the release of fatty acids for fuel. Your post workout meal is also more likely to be efficiently processed by the body by transporting nutrients directly to the muscles reducing the chances of storing on the waistline and lowering the amount of insulin being released. Due to this process the blood sugar levels will not peak suddenly, minimising the drop off (slump) in the afternoon and keeping you energized for longer.

A trainers perspective

Linda Jones Explains How P4 Works For Her.
 
When Dylan first approached me about becoming a 'virtual trainer' on his newly formed P4 site I must admit I was a little dubious. I have been a personal trainer for nearly 7 years and all I have ever known and understood was one to one training, physically with my clients in the same room.

It didn’t take long however to fully understand P4's powerful potential when it comes to reaching more clients fast. I fell in love with the whole idea and quickly got involved in new client assessments; programme design and client weekly check ins.  

Training clients on the gym floor is rewarding but it limits your time for each individual meaning they get the best of your for that 1 hour but often don’t hear anything from you until the next session. Being a P4 trainer allows me to arm my clients with all they need to know so they can empower themselves. I can monitor their progress and document their results ensuring they achieve all they set out to do so as well as being on hand at any time for help and advice.

It has also crossed over to my existing clients who continue to see me every week using P4 instead as a way of being able to do additional sessions especially when they are travelling, preventing any set backs or regressions in progress. It really is seamless and an incredible tool in my arsenal of ways ensuring my clients are happy, healthy and getting the body they deserve.

The world is changing all around us and with it how we work so its extremely exciting that we are breathing new life into the world of health and fitness and finally bringing life changing direction to those who never dreamt they would be able to access it!
