Every week we’ll be bringing you a Top 5 list of things we’ve enjoyed reading, listening to or watching in the world of health, fitness and nutrition recently. This week we’re introducing you to five very different contributors to this arena, each with plenty to say. I hope you enjoy!
We’re back after a little hiatus with our regular weekly column. Part of the reason for the break is because I’ve recently become a father (woo yay! I’m pretty tired) but mostly we’ve been very busy behind the scenes and you’ll be able to see the fruits of our labour soon. Expect announcements on our launch product, future services and mobile applications, all for 2016!
We’re extending the beta for our existing users, and putting a temporary hold on any new sign ups. Version 1 of TrainerSync will remain free for a little bit longer while we fix some things with the existing version and move forward with Version 2 of our personal trainer software.
So if you’re already a user, you get to keep using TrainerSync with your clients for free. We’ll let you know when that’s going to change, but for now keep doing what you’re doing.
This week we’re going in depth with sleeping, some less conventional weight loss tips, why breakfast may make you hungrier and Gary Vaynerchuk on fitness entrepreneurs.
As part of our ongoing improvements we asked you what feature you would find most useful in helping you run your personal training business.
Here’s what you had to say.
Give us 30 minutes and tell us what you need doing. We’ll go away and do it for you. We’ll input your existing clients. We’ll set up their progress, goals and nutrition. We’ll plough through your small mountain of workout spreadsheets and build them for you within TrainerSync’s Workout Builder.
This week we’re covering childhood obesity, testosterone decline, a follow up to our recent deadlift roundup with a complete how to deadlift guide, strength training for dancers and how to train like a fighter.
Hope you all enjoy your weekend!
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.
It’s a female specific Stuff We Like This Week and we have a load of great information to share! There’s some excellent information below on how to get the most out of training women in general as well as female athletes, some common strength training myths, carb intake and body recomposition and how to treat yourself in the gym when you’re expecting.
Until next time, hope you’re all enjoying the start of Spring and you have a great weekend!
