While exercise makes our bodies look great, there’s also a less obvious benefit: a beauty boost. How active you are directly affects your complexion and hair.

Forget the app just found it on play store.
This works excellent for me as a national worker, if I am lucky I get home late Friday and then away again on Monday morning. Some of the hotels have gyms and pools but not always leaving me with the option of read a book or sit at the bar. having the flexibility to go to most gyms in the UK at the drop of a hat is brilliant and would benefit even more from an app with my account details on there to save logging on to websites every time I have the chance to frequent a gym.
I agree it's much easier when they're younger. But I'm sure if we instill the habit in these early years and give them a love of activity, they 'll be more likely to enjoy them throughout their teenagehood too.
I'm making the most of the primary years when there's no need to push them to get moving! We have an outdoor gym in our nearby park and weather permitting it is just the trick for all of us.
having older children now, I realise how simple it was back then to get them active by doing family things. When they gt to be 'tweenagers' it's not nearly so easy, as walks are 'boring' and most of the activities they want to do cost loads of money"
The concept of 'pay as you gym' is a fantastic idea and it has helped solving a problem in the fitness market, I congratulate you in our initiative. I did think that the former name 'PayAsUGym', although being very clear and straightforward, sounded a bit like a text message, and was lacking impact. However, I am not convinced about your new choice, HUSSLE. To start, as I began to receive emails informing me about the re-branding, my mind was instinctively spelling your new name as HUSTLE, which is , by the way, the right one. Then, I decided to make some search online and I came across a few definitions for Hussle in an urban dictionary, starting from the 'misspelling of Hustle', followed by slang to 'make money', and a few more. In addition to this, I also found the artistic name of an American rapper who died last march, Nipsey Hussle. I can't deny that the new name and logo have a lot more impact, but I feel like it is more directed at the young and 'cool' generation. To finish, between Hussle and Hassle (sounding pretty similar) there is only one different vowel.
I'd never thought about the chocolate in the evening also containing caffeine. That's a good point and cnd considering I can eat a 100g bar of dark chocolate quite easily an a Saturday evening might be why I sometimes then struggle to get to sleep!
this is where HIIT works - time to warm up, workout, cool down and that two minute shower. Then back at the desk sweet smelling, exercised and in good time!
I do the heel raises under my desk throughout the day already and I also use an exercise ball to sit on so I can also do a few moves on there. It all adds up and means I don't feel too stiff if I do dash off for lunchtime workout. .
I do get annoyed when the only thing people say to my daughter is 'you look pretty'. That's giving the wrong messages from early on, especially when you hear the same people compliment a boy on being tough or clever. This is not how it will be in my house.
I'm now old enough to be past body image issues - but it isn't easy at all when you are late teens/twenties and bombarded with all these images of perfection. Here's to gyms that really do welcome everyone, whatever their shape.
Perhaps I'm sceptical but I have always seen retreats as a commercial venture which is great while you're there, but life just gets back to normal when you're home. People should get into good habits everyday rather than doing random retreats in my opinion.
I didn't attend a gym until my 30s because I was overweight in my 20s and felt intimidated by everyone else's 'perfect' bodies. I wish I hadn't cared and just got on with it. And I am very glad attitudes are changing now and people judge less. Still lots of work to do though.
I don't do a warm up except for a few basic leg and arm stretches. But it's never seemed to impact the workout, and it definitely saves time when I do a lunchtime workout.
I am definitely guilty of just checking my email and I'm still there 20 minutes later due to getting sidetracked by non-essential stuff. I have found it helps a lot to resist checking more than once a morning, once in afternoon and once in evening.
Exercising in small chunks has saved my fitness. I am not going to the gym today as it's my turn to collect the kids but have just done 5 minute dumbbell workout, and later will do 100 squats.
i completely agree about the no posters of idealised people. This has been a big part of people's mental heath problems/body confidence issues for years and it should stop now.
I must admit i don' always shower if I've only done some weights. I think its only essential if you're hot and sweaty after cardio.
yes yes yes to what we say and media messages. How often does news coverage of a female death refer only to her as 'beautiful'? Did the poor woman achieve nothing? Let's value each other for more than our looks, cradle to grave.
Organising the mornings are definitely my way of feeling in control and giving myself time. I even have time to do some 5 minutes of yoga stretches!
good ideas but please if you work anywhere like my badly ventilated office, take two minutes for a post workout shower, that's all it needs. Deodorant is not a canned shower and will only add to the evils!
I think you have got the rebrand spot on. People today need flexibility and options and they also want to experience a little bit of everything. This ticks all the boxes for me. Thanks for the free pass too!
A silent retreat sounds good to me. Being surrounded by young children for most of the day that would be amazing for my mental health!
