News: VHC launches Skype Personal Training Service

Virtual Health launches Skype Personal Training Service.

Virtual Health was initially for those individuals who are embarrassed to go to the gym and who were time poor. However, after much nurturing and managing the highs and lows of business, this week I have launched a new personal training concept “Personal Training” through Skype.

Some of our old clients have been in touch this week and live outside the UK or are not in our area and wondered how I could help them as we have previous training history and they didn’t want to train with anyone else or was unable to find the suitable trainer.

Skype seems to be our solution to staying in touch on scheduled training and keeping my valued clients in good shape.

So when you have a moment take a look at our re branded site at http://www.virtual-healthclub.com and or drop me a line on email: info@virtual-healthclub.com

Test your acidity levels in your body by investing in a packet of urines strips which will report your acidity levels. Check them on the chart provided.

Your PH levels will probably report a low PH reading and high levels of acidity. Balancing the P H in your body requires you to eat foods which act as an Alkaline to neutralise the acid in your joints. Alternatively you can make an appointment to see your G P and ask for a diet sheet and by following the choices of foods start the process of reducing the painful symptoms you are experiencing.

Making sure you understand the effect of your food choices are having on your body can help keep your body and your immune system in harmony.

WEAK PELVIC FLOOR MUSCLES ?

If your pelvic floor muscles are weak you will be unable to respond when your body performs dynamic exercises.

Most of us have heard of the pelvic floor muscles but few practise them as much as 3 times a week.

They are there to protect the pelvic organs and embarrassing leakages.

To strengthen your pelvic floor muscles you need to do the exercises three times a day and up to ten sets of ten second holds with also ten short strong contractions daily for about 12 weeks.

Pelvic floor problems are not age related some teenagers also suffer from bladder and bowel control as well. Teenagers, who are heavily into sports at school such as gymnastics for example tumbling, can also experience a weak pelvic floor due to the force on the pelvic floor when landing as does running.

Are you worried about someone’s memory?

It can be terrifying, …if, someone you love has started to show signs of reduce cognitive function, memory loss in other words, or showing signs of the onset of dementia or even Alzheimer’s disease which is a form of dementia.

The feeling of helplessness, feeling out of control, and the pain of seeing someone you love slowly disappearing, can leave you wondering how you will cope – and whether you are up to it, as it has a funny way of bringing about one’s own mortality.

Right at this moment, turn to the person you love. I want you to imagine what life would be like – your life, as your loved one gradually forgets everything about you, eventually not being able to remember who you are, your name even, and your shared life.

Checking your state of health and why it remains important.

Health Assessment
Staying healthy can delay the onset of chronic disease

HEALTH ASSESSMENT. 

Why it is important and what to expect.

Before embarking on any exercise program it is paramount that you undertake a health assessment whether you are on medication or not.In the world of personal training we are governed by a code of practice and have a “duty of care” to our clients in order to make sure you are safe and as free from risk as possibly.

 The health assessment follows the initial consultation

 What is a health assessment and what does it report?

A health assessment is a measurement of approx 10-12 key indicators of your personal state of health.

They range from blood pressure readings to a variety of tests including body fat measurements, flexibility just to name a few.

The benefit to you is that a health assessment can provide key information and can detect health issues that may prevent the onset of chronic disease such as a stroke.

So, if you are thinking of engaging with a personal trainer this is what you need to know from the health assessment before you start an exercise program.

  •  Blood pressure test

Normal blood pressure for young people 120mmHg/80mmHg and changes with age to approx 140mmHg/90mmHg any higher than that there needs to be referral to the GP

It’s a known fact that exercise raises blood pressure and is linked to stroke. A responsible trainer will never compromise neither you nor them, but will insist on a health check before prescribing or embarking on any exercise program.

  • Peak flow measurement ( tests lung capacity )

This involves blowing thru a tube for a reading three times and averaging for the score and again if the lung capacity is too low exercise may be impaired.

  •  Waist and hip ratio.

Measures waist and hips circumference. Too much weight around the waist can lead to health problems.

  •  Height & weight

Body Mass Index (BMI) is the relationship between weight and height that is often associated with health risks.

Note

Some sports specific individuals who have a higher ratio of muscle to fat such as Rugby players have a tendency to fall into the obese category of Body Mass Index scoring when being tested.

  •  Stretch assessment.(tests lower back and hamstring flexibility)

Hamstring flexibility or the lack of it, can affect one’s exercise capacity due to their short length so problems may arise with cardiovascular training. Training adaptations are required.

  • Core strength assessment.(tests the strength of the deeper core muscles which aids postural strength)

The core area is the area of the body which runs from the shoulders to the hips.

  •  Body fat & hydration assessment ( non invasive testing and immediate reporting)
  •  Full range sit up assessment ( if appropriate)

This assessment tests superficial stomach muscles “the one’s you can see- hopefully”

This test maybe inappropriate for some clients, especially those with reduced flexibility, back complaints or have hernia.

  •  Press up assessment ( if appropriate)

This assessment tests the strength of a variety of muscles in your upper body  and core.

  •  Back  Mobility Assessment ( required for mobility and CV, Cardio vascular training).

 (If appropriate) means that if the trainer believes the test is going to impair the training the test can be bought in at a later date once you have acquired the skills for that test. However, much does depend on what you are trying to achieve from the program. The trainer will make a decision. The results of the assessment will give you a base line in terms of a starting place at that given time and date.

Remember, that without testing or measuring you will never know how much you are improving or what is changing in relation to body composition and your own personal health.

Our assessment will show you just that!

 Exercise prescription also available on request and please don’t be offended if I send you to your GP for further testing should the results dictate.

Love your curves.

Jane believes that it’s ok to be curvaceous, shapely and toned but a change of body shape can come about by a mere change in your job, from being active to a sedentary desk job. But all that aside being active has more benefits than just losing and maintaining you weight.

For all those Jane has worked with who have been on a diet are now fatter than ever, if they worked why are we so fat, apart from being fed up and miserable and put chronic stress it puts on your heart which is un maintainable is a psycological nightmare.

Starving yourself of what you want only increases your desire for it, whether it is food related or another topic. It has been made clear to Jane over a period of time that not all people have the correct understanding regarding the difference between slow release sugars like fruit and refined sugar such as sweets, cakes and biscuits and alcohol which have a direct impact on your waist line that are highly addictive?

The more of these foods you eat the bigger your waist line will become and the more of them you keep eating to get your fix. People choose to wear baggy cloth’s instead of fitted one’s so is it a wonder we lose a sense of this feels tight and I better do something about it.

So the question is

For what reason are you so addicted to sugar and do you know how to change it, address that and be honest with yourself and you might stand a chance?

Healthy is not just defined in terms of body, nutrition and exercise the two missing components are your emotional health and your Psychological health and for some it includes spiritual growth.

Weaning yourself from sugar is like trying to stop smoking, it is really difficult without plummeting into low mood due to nicotine stimulating effects on your brain, the same happens when you try to wean yourself from refined sugar.

In her opinion, rapid diets may be the only option if you have to undergo surgery as the risk of not losing weight prior to a major operation may result in serious consequences but this is usually a directive given by the doctor.

If you lose weight too quickly and the fat in your body falls out of the cell the result you are left with is saggy skin and the only option is surgery – Nip & tuck and at a huge cost, not only to you but a huige financial one to.

Exercise is a part of a healthy life style as is nutritian, spirituality and emotional health.

Exercise for older people

Most of the older clients I train in health and fitness lessons, do so because they wish to remain healthy, independent and fit in their later years. However more importantly they wish to stay as mobile and flexible for as long as they can. They like to make sure they are doing the exerices correctly.
It is important to them that they remain independent, in their own home as long as possible and are able to still stretch up to the cupboards and tie their shoe laces.
You can only do that if you do not lose your mobility and flexibility.
Remaining active in older age helps to keep you moving, mobile, independent and socially interactive and more importantly confident.

Testimonials
When I fell and hurt myself at work, you took care of me, would not let me train and I realised just how much you know about the body. I thought I had hurt with my knee which I found out later with you that the problem stemmed from by back- You are better than my doctor you understand so much about the human body and spent so much time with me until I was better sorting the problem out.
