How you think about Training?

22nd October 2018

A key element of fitness is being able to sustain what we are doing. You may have heard of people talking about the “80/20 principle” where they really nail things 80% off the time, then give themselves that little bit of leeway (the 20%) to keep themselves sane.

Stretching: Why, What and How?

8th October 2018

It is almost guaranteed that you’ve done stretching before. Physical education sessions at school are an early introduction, as is stretching as you wake up in the morning! We have specific stretching sessions and parts of every workout are dedicated to warming up and stretching at the end at FITFriends, so all aspects of your fitness are catered for.
