It’s my bingo wings…what should I do?

I hear this phrase a lot. Women talk a lot about ‘bingo wings’! At first, I didn’t know what they were but a lot of the women in my classes kept mentioning them. Surely, it had nothing to do with bingo! ‘Bingo wings’ (or, as described by some of the women, is the loose skin […]

You can lose half a stone in a week?

When someone tells me they’ve lost half a stone in a week, I get suspicious. Why? Well, it seems a lot plus I’m not exactly sure what they’ve lost. Is that half a stone pure body fat loss? Maybe it’s water weight or even muscle tissue? And…what have they been eating (or not eating, more […]

This one exercise guarantees toned thighs…

If someone (you can trust) told you that by doing one thing in life would guarantee a great result, would you do that thing? I’m not just talking about a physical result; it could be mental, spiritual or emotional. But I’m sure, because you trusted that person; you would listen and act on their suggestion. […]

Does your gym hide the truth about exercise?

Gyms…you love them or hate them. I know a lot of people and it’s a split camp. Some people rave about their gym – you know, as if they own it! Seriously though, some people love the gym and I can see why. It (usually) provides brand new equipment, lots of equipment choice, clean changing […]
