In this article I look at several free applications for Android and iOS which I think essential for aiding your weight loss efforts. I have tried these and used them myself and found they are all beneficial to achieving your weightloss and fitness goals.
Health & Fitness
My diary about health and fitness, injury recovery from a serious car crash in the beginning of 2006, including several subsequent operations to help fix the damage.
When it comes to health and fitness, we all have similar goals - lose weight, build muscle and so on. What is it that stops us from achieving these goals?
We have all tried some fad diet plan at some point in our lives, putting our bodies through a crash calorie diet to lose weight for a wedding, holiday or important date. The truth is that the weight will start creeping back just as fast as the weight loss is unsustainable in the long run.
On the 18th June 2017, I completed my first formally timed 10k run for the Glasgow Mens 10K, and I was raising money for Cancer Research UK as well. After months of training from the couch to 10k, diet, running plans, running gear, injury and recovery, here's what I learned from the experience.
I've been suffering from shin splits ever since I started running a year ago. It seems to be a persistent problem where after 2 weeks of running twice per week, about 3-4k distance each run, I then have to take a few weeks off to recover from shin splints.
As part of my latest fitness drive, I've set myself the triple challenge of not only competing in my first competitive event and raising money for charity, also I have also set a time to complete the run in as well.
FootBallance Insoles are the latest thing in running technology. These are essentially 100% custom insoles which can be slipped into any shoe and provide arch support. Do they work? Read on and find out.
I've been going out running now twice a week gradually building up the distance while improving my pace. I'm aiming for a consistent pace, not a fast time. If I can keep a consistent pace from start to finish and then improve that pace I'm doing good.
After 34 years on this planet, I finally get why people run. I mean, I always understood why people were running in the park or down the street but it was always accompanied with mockery. "That seems like a painful way to spend time."
