Continuous exercise combined with a smart diet plan that is rich in fruit and veg, can go a long way in changing how healthy you feel on a day to day basis. Finding a good balance between both can be a problem for many when there are other challenges such as time limitations due to family and work commitments.
That is why we believe commuting to the gym should only ever be undertaken if the journey takes less than fifteen minutes. If more, we believe you can conduct your cardio better from the comfort of your own home with a treadmill like the Weslo Cadence G 5.9. Check here: Weslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill for a full review and summary of its specifications and exercise functions.
Something like this is ideal for home exercise because it folds, saving space and is relatively simple to install. Combine this with some strength training equipment and you have a great formula for seeing improvements in both stamina and muscle mass.

We will be launching a sister fitness site soon that will include training videos that will focus on building muscle mass and strength. Within this site will be a community forum to ask professional personal trainers questions.
Sometime soon, we will have a spa and restaraunt adding to the overall customer experience. Stay tuned as we look to bring in some top regional chefs who are widely known for healthy dishes. We feel by doing this users will get a full all round treatment that will provide long term weight loss results.
Just remember, the key to health is removing stress through working out, and eating consitently healthy meals that include lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, protein, vitamins and minerals.
Your next logical step after getting your workout regime in place would be seeing a qualified nutritionist to help you understand what foods are good to eat and which aren't. Plus, in most cases, you will get a very powerful insight into how often you should eat, and when.
Everyone is different, which explains the many different diet plans around the web, so it's important to find something that works for you.
There is one formula that has worked for me however, and that is consistent cardio exercise on a treadmill, my current being the Cadence G 5.9 from Weslo, and a carefully designed meal plan that takes into account the amount of calories being consumed.
The final part of the puzzle for me at least, is how you train. Some waste time and complain about not seeing results fast enough. A lot of the time, thats because you are not pushing yourself hard enough. Next time you are training on the treadmill, try to up the intensity a notch, and see if you have the same issues after a month or so.
If you're one of those people who struggle to get yourself motivated to work out, why not have a go at the 100 push up challenge? The end goal is to do 100 push ups without stopping. And the best way to train for this, is to (you guessed it!) Do push ups.
I always advise doing this to people just starting out in the fitness struggle because it does a fantastic job in building upper body strength and toning. To start with push towards 5 sets of ten. Then gradually move up towards 5 sets of 20.
Sometimes you will find yourself hitting a wall where you are finding it difficult to notice improvements. If this is the case, we advise mixing it up a little, and try doing diamond, and wide stance push ups. You can also do leg raised ones to add more pressure to youre pecs and shoulders. Consistency is key here. It took me a solid year to hit 70 in one go. I'm not approaching the 100 mark, but it's been a long, tiresome journey. But well worth it.
