When it comes to curbing the sweet tooth, we're never short of choice. The 'healthy snacks' market is ever growing, be it bountiful berry or sumptuous salted caramel, there's a company out there that has it covered. One thing we have found though, is that it can be difficult to determine the good sugars from the bad, the natural from the unnatural. To conquer these queries, we've compiled a list of our 5 favourites...

1. Pulsin BarsThe perfect pocket snack for on the go. Vegan, gluten and dairy free these bars suit everyone, packing in the protein whilst low in sugar and deliciously tasty. They also come in a variety of flavours including almond and raisin, and orange chocolate chip! Who's hungry?http://www.pulsin.co.uk/

2. Whitworths 'Shots'With each sweet snack shot under 100 calories, these are perfect for those watching their calorie intake. From 'toffee and pecan' to 'tropical coconut', each sachet offers an abundance of flavour, goodness and excitement to every snack! http://whitworths.co.uk/our-products/shots/

3. Rude Health snack barsRude Health’s snack bars are an allotment full of fruit & veg in a fudgy bar with seeds & nuts thrown in for good measure. And if that isn’t enough, they are high in fibre, gluten-free and made with no refined sugar. We simply can't get enough!http://rudehealth.com/product/the-pumpkin/

4. Bounce BallsEat good, feel good, do good. The Bounce philosophy is right in line with our own, which is why they're a TRAINFITNESS firm favourite... especially their brand new coconut and lemon flavour!http://uk.bouncefoods.com/our-balls/

5. Kind BarsEach bar is made from whole nuts, fruits and spices, bound together with honey for a simple and delicious snack, packing in 72% nuts! And let us tell you we're nuts for them ourselves!https://www.kindsnacks.co.uk/products/

    Without those homemade meals, it’s very easy to make poor nutritional choices. To help you make slightly better ones we’ve compiled a list of healthier options you can find on the high-street. They might not be to everyone’s taste, but they do at least offer variety, flavour and meals more aligned to your goals of healthier, happier and fitter living.

    It’s celebrated once a year, excusing old and young from all guilt whilst consuming endless piles of pancakes topped with whatever the taste buds desire. But often we’re hindered with where to start. There’s an abundance of recipes out there ranging from healthy to hearty, from blueberry to bizarre, and so we search the web endlessly, just hoping for one to tickle our fancy.

    Once we understand that our body is made up of billions of tiny individual cells and that these cells collectively are responsible for our health, it becomes very clear that an unhealthy body will have a difficult time losing fat, gaining muscle, driving up energy levels, thinking with greater clarity, possessing better skin and hair, having fewer colds and ills and generally performing positively.

    Plyometrics are a great way of increasing speed and strength, which will then in turn increase power. This type of training helps to enhances muscle elasticity and therefore all round athletic performance. While this may not be the primary goal of all of our clients, it will have a positive effect on general quality of life by allowing a greater level of function to be achieved.
