    I’m Charlotte, a Vegan Bikini Fitness Competitor and Health and Fitness Blogger. For the last five months I have undergone competition prep to compete for the first time as a Bikini Model. In terms of training, it is essentially bodybuilding. Sound scary? Thought so! Do not fear, this does not mean that my physique is going to switch from petite dancer to Arnold Schwarzenegger overnight.

    By switching a few ingredients, you can greatly reduce your calorie intake without compromising on flavour. These handy dupes can mean more protein, less sugar and better sources of fat.

  • When you ask most people if sleep is important, the majority will confidently reply that it is. Despite this, in the 2012 Great British Sleep Survey, the average score for participants was 5.1 out of a possible 10, meaning most people were down on their recommended amount of sleep by almost 50%.

    Low Back Pain

    Posted On

    12 December 2014

    The Prevalence of Low Back Pain in the UK Low back pain is one of the most common non-life threatening health problems in the UK. It not only creates a huge personal inconvenience and hindrance to individuals, but it also affects the UK financially and as a national community. According to a survey published back in 2000, almost half of the adult population in the UK reported occurrences of low back pain lasting for a minimum of 24 hours during the year. Two further reviews were conducted, one of which focused on the elderly and the other on adolescents, both of which identified high numbers of these populations suffering with low back pain. It appears from the research that the number of people with back pain increases with advancing age, starting in school children and peaking in adults of 35 to 55 years. Additional findings suggested that back pain was just as common in adolescents as in adults. From these studies it can therefore be estimated that four out of every five adults will experience some form of back pain at some stage in their life. It can therefore be predicted that in industrialised countries such as the UK, up to 80% of the population will suffer with back pain at some stage in their life.

    Children's Fitness

    Childhood and adolescent obesity is a growing concern worldwide. The number of overweight and obese children in the UK has doubled in the last two decades, with one in five 15 year olds classed as obese. In 2006, a UK study (National Centre for Social Research) identified that 18.9% of boys and 17.8% of girls aged between 2 and 15 years were classified as obese. In addition to this the same study highlighted that a further 13.7% of boys and 16.3% of girls were overweight. This quantified to 2.3 million obese children in the UK, at the time. Worryingly for the UK, such statistics reveal our children are some of the unhealthiest in Europe. So how can fitness professionals help? It is proven that very few children put on weight because of an underlying medical problem, but actually put on weight because their lifestyle sees a lack of physical activity and an unhealthy diet. Personal Training and Fitness professionals have the potential to be at the forefront to assist in improving this epidemic, by educating parents and helping children be more active. So the main questions are, what are the causes of childhood obesity in the UK and what can we, as fitness professionals, do to help?
