Getting started with foam rolling and self-myofascial release

By | Stuff We Like

This week we’re sharing a few posts on a specific topic – foam rolling and self-myofascial release (SMR).

In this day and age, injury prevention and treatment is a lot higher on the agenda than it was a decade ago. People are more aware of mobility and soft tissue work than ever before. These blog posts and videos we’re sharing go through how you might want to approach SMR, examples of different ways to use a foam roller, and its potential pros and cons.

Squatting, breakfast and vegans

By | Stuff We Like

I’ve been away on holiday for much of this week, so I’ve not had as much time for research as I normally would. I did finally get around to reading Deep Water by Jon Andersen, my only regret being that it took so long to get to it. Well worth your time and money.

In the meantime, this week we’re sharing some quality blog posts on muscular growth through squatting, improving your HRV, what to eat for breakfast, primal tips for vegetarians and vegans and how a prominent nutrition blogger eats.

How TrainerSync was born?

By | Personal Trainer Software

In 2012, I was looking for a software solution to aid my personal training business. I wanted something I could use to track all my client workout and nutrition information and be in a position to easily share that information with my clients. I wasn’t looking for anything too complicated but what I did want was something professional that saved me time and effort tracking these details over time, so I could easily see and show how progress was going.

Diabetes, group training and raising your VO2 max

By | Stuff We Like

Welcome to the end of another week and another Stuff We Like post! It’s already Valentine’s Day weekend (I’m not sure I like how a day becomes a weekend, but there you go), so most of you beautiful people will no doubt have plans. For the record, I’m thinking an excellent Sunday lunch followed by watching Deadpool feels like the right plan this year, whether alone or with your significant other.

For when you’re not busy with fun and romance, we have five entries this week for you to read, covering increasing your fitness levels and why you probably should do, assessing clients in group settings, a straightforward guide to diabetes, a comprehensive glossary of strength and conditioning terms and why you’re probably not growing muscle.

Until next week!

We’re already nearly a twelfth of the way through the year! It feels like January has gone by extremely quickly. While we hope your fitness business is doing record business so far this year, we’ve been busy putting together the final touches to our completely updated workout builder and recorder functions and then we’ll be launching our service for everyone. So we’re extremely busy right now, with a lot of testing and chatting with our beta users, as well as lots of other fitness industry people, so we know exactly how you want our software to work for your business.

If you’d like to get involved at this stage and would like to have a chat with me about the fitness industry and your business within it, do please get in touch by using our Contact Us page.

In the meantime, our Stuff We Like post this week includes one more round up from 2015 (I make no promises that this is the last one. But it’s probably the last one), a list of the best exercises you should be doing, how to make the move from lean to ripped, back pain help and ab wheel core strength development.
