EXERCISE is known to boost weight loss and make you stronger, but a particular gym workout could have an anti-ageing effect on your body too. Exercise may be more than just a way to maintain your waistline and build muscle – it could turn back time. A study published earlier this year discovered that high-intensity interval training – often abbreviated to HIIT – has an anti-ageing effect on the body. The workout has become a popular gym workout in recent years, and involves quick, short bursts of exercise.
Improving your fitness level is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions, however gym memberships often go unused from February onwards. The trick to getting fit and staying that way is finding the right exercise for you. To give you a helping hand, Bazaar has edited the best new classes and experts for 2018.
We are only a few weeks away from Christmas and if you’re like me you are completely disorganised and still have no idea what to buy for some of your family and friends. Or maybe you are very organised and only have the last few bits to buy, or nothing at all (go you if you are that person, I’m forever trying to be as organised as you). I’m quite lucky in that I have a teeny little family and a few close friends so I don’t have loads of people to buy for but I still always struggle to buy for people, especially the “fitpos” in my life!
If, like me, you are already starting your Christmas shopping or starting to think about what you are buying each person you will already know there is at least one person on the list you have no idea what to get. It might be the dad who never wants anything much, the friend who seems to already have everything or the indecisive partner who doesn’t know what they want. How about something different for them this Christmas? My Christmas experience voucher gift guide is just the thing you need. Instead of buying something that will never get any use gift an experience voucher.

On Friday 15th September, Protein World met up with the team at F45 Tottenham Court Road. For those unfamiliar with who F45 are, they’re one of the biggest fitness concepts to sweep Australia since Subway and Starbucks opened their first locations. Since coming to the UK, they’ve continued to grow in popularity, opening franchises all over the place.
F45, short for Functional 45 Training, is the fastest growing franchise in Australia, which is set to expand in the UK.
Founded by former equities trader, Rob Deutsch who spotted a gap in the health and fitness market just over three years ago, F45 has fast become a global fitness phenomenon, spanning 26 countries with 100,000 members and an anticipated 1,150 franchises by the end of 2017.
Following its unbridled success in Australia, F45 is now the fourth fastest growing franchise in the world, surpassing even Subway. F45’s ambitious expansion plans across the UK and Ireland, will result in 31 new sites opening over the next 12 months, following the launch of their flagship studio on London’s Tottenham Court Road.
Time is a malleable thing. Forty-five seconds doesn’t feel like a lot of time when you’re mindlessly scrolling through Instagram or binging on your fifth hour of Netflix. But when you’re swinging an 8kg kettlebell in the air, less than a minute can feel like a lifetime.
Every winter I struggle to maintain motivation with my training and I know I’m not only one. The morning is the toughest the cold air makes me want to do nothing! I’ve also been guilty of doing the same old fitness routines day in day out. But this winter, I’ve decided to try something new.
The reasons why somebody comes back to a brand are more complex. F45 Training, the fitness franchise, takes a very different approach to retaining customers and, unlike many gym chains, doesn’t even try to encourage people to commit to annual contracts.
With beach season upon us and just eight weeks left until Christmas, many desperate Australians are turning to quick fixes and fad diets in an effort to get into shape.
And while some do see results on their chosen program, many gain the weight back quickly and struggle with lethargy, breakouts and a lack of motivation.
But according to five men and women who have transformed their bodies in just eight weeks, there is one program that left them looking and feeling better than ever – and they’re motivated to continue everything they’ve learned!
The Australian fitness franchise is massive news Down Under and now has its sights set on British soil. If you haven’t heard of it yet, you soon will, says Liz Connor
Earthquakes in the fitness world. Joe Wicks, fitness guru and beacon of all things health, has released a new video in which he says he is “not exercising, blowing out every day, eating loads of junk food and feeling a bit naff”.
Yes, the man who brought us the Lean in 15 plan has fallen off the fitness wagon. Wicks admitted to binging on chocolate, fizzy drinks and hobnobs in a post on Facebook, saying, “I went to Miami with the boys for my birthday, I went to Vegas. I’m now in LA. I basically need to get back in the game mentally. I’ve just been lazy.”
