    “Feeling” is one of the most important components of training for physique. No matter what gym you go to, you will have seen someone doing a bicep curl, for example, with little regard for proper technique or knowledge of what they are doing. They are just trying to heave as much weight as possible, shouting and screaming, and paying little or no attention to the exercise. Success in body-building however comes from the muscular contraction. It is both the key and the secret. If you don’t FEEL the muscle, you can’t grow the muscle.

    I first became aware of Train Fitness back in 2009 after qualifying as a Zumba Instructor and looking to further my knowledge in the industry. I’d researched many different providers and Train Fitness seemed to be the most competitive in price, and the most impressive in course. Not long after I became pregnant with my daughter and so my plans of becoming a Fitness Instructor were put on hold temporarily! Fast Forward to 2012 and I finally bit the bullet and signed up to do my ETM.

    We’ve all been there. You invite your favourite group of friends over for dinner, spend hours salving at the chopping board and steaming at the oven only to be informed last minute that one awkward friend has made the decision to go ‘gluten free’. Once an unheard of choice is now more fashionable that the latest Prada. You’re almost an anomaly if you’re not gluten free. Supermarkets hold back entire isles for ‘free from’ products and most restaurants mark clearly and proudly their ‘GF’ options. But unless diagnosed with a disagreement, how beneficial is this Gwyneth Paltrow inspired change?
