  • USN PROMO NIGHT

    It's safe to say we always like to have something going on at your club. Our USN PROMO night will be happening this monday 12th August at 5pm to 8pm.

    Why should you come along??

    On the day we will have a USN ATHLETE Philly Fleming coming in to meet all our great members.
    Philly is an MSc Sports Nutrition student at Loughborough University (with a BSc in Sport and Exercise Science), PCA bikini competitor, fitness model and coach.

    Below is from Philly's wbsite

    "My passion for health and fitness has exploded since being a skinny teenager, with a desire to be strong, and capable of anything!

    Soon enough I turned to lifting weights, which I immediately fell in love with. To me, there is nothing better than the combined feeling of strength, confidence and constant accomplishment that training provides.

    My passion for the science quickly followed and I began my studies at Loughborough University, whilst constantly learning through my own training endeavours.

    Fast forward four years, and I've taken First Place Bikini Junior at PCA Manchester 2018, also placing Top 5 at the PCA 2018 British Finals.

    I have largely self-prepped throughout both on and offseason, and I take pride in the fact that I am able to do so.

    Whilst I've learnt how to take my body through the extremes of prep, I've also developed a much more positive relationship with food and body image - an aspect of life which I feel is too often neglected especially in the fitness industry."

    Philly will be at the club between 5pm and 8pm on monday 12th August.

    We will also have USN supplement giveaways and COMPETITIONS!

    Also non-members can come in and have a training session on us.

  • Benifits of small group training

    Small Group Training has steadily grown in popularity over the last few years, and for good reason; it offers the results and benefits of Personal Training – but at a fraction of the cost!

    But the best news is that the more affordable price-point is far from being the only benefit of small group training – in addition there are also some specific aspects of this mode of training that can actually make it more effective when compared to a big class full of people – here’s our run-down of the top 7 Benefits of Small Group Personal Training.

    1. Camaraderie
      Let’s face it, working out with others is always going to be more fun than working out on your own! Although the aim of any personal training programme is to achieve amazing results, it’s vital to have fun whilst you are training to ensure that your motivation stays high and you maintain enthusiasm to stick to your training schedule. Working out with others gives you the opportunity to feed off of other members of the group and enjoy some occasional banter with your co-trainers (although not too much – remember you’re here to work hard and get great results!). Put simply, small group personal training makes training more fun – and that can only be a good thing!
    2. Adherence
      There’s bundles of research to show that if you are involved in a Small Group Personal Training programme then you are more likely to stick with it and consistently keep training over the long-term. Suddenly you have other people to think about – and if you start slacking then you’re accountable to them as well as just yourself and your personal trainer! It’s this increased level of accountability that helps to drive you forward and ensure you stick with your training programme and consistently put in the effort over the long-term.
    3. Friendly Competition
      When you train with others it’s an opportunity for you to measure your rate of progress and personal goals and achievements directly against that of your other group members. This means that rather than work towards your own personal goals in isolation, you have a reliable and highly informative method of measuring your success against that of your peers – this helps you to be realistic and honest about how you are progressing and whether or not you are putting in the required amount of commitment to your training and nutritional programme!
    4. Motivation
      Training as part of a small group will help to keep you motivated towards your training – there’s nothing more guaranteed to push you to work harder than seeing other members of your group putting in more effort and progressing faster than yourself!This is something that you simply don’t have when training in isolation with a personal trainer – although they can give you the benefit of their knowledge and experience of working with others who have the same goals as you – it’s not the same as being able to directly compare your progress to that of your peers during every group session.As an added bonus, if you happen to be the person who is progressing faster than anyone else in your group, it’s going to make you feel really good about your training and motivate you to keep working harder. It really is a win-win situation for all!
    5. Personal Attention
      With larger group exercise where you can have as many as 30 people in the same class, there is limited opportunity for the instructor to provide you with close personal attention as an individual. This is very much not the case with small group personal training – as long as you ensure you find a class that has no more than 10 people taking part at any one time, the personal trainer is able to offer you personalised advice as you train to help you reach your own individual fitness goals. The key thing here is that there’s nowhere to hide when you are part of a small group personal training programme – which means you’ll be more motivated and driven to push yourself harder!
    6. Support and Advice
      Any decent personal trainer will pride themselves on the level of expertise and knowledge that they are able to offer you – but you’d be foolish to discount the amount of usual and beneficial knowledge and guidance that you can glean from training with others as part of a small group personal training programme. Even with a highly-skilled and knowledgeable personal trainer to guide you, you can still learn from other peers within your group as you talk about your progress and the challenges you face with one another. Members of a small group personal training programme all benefit from helping and advising each other – again it’s a win-win situation for all!
    7. Accountability
      Crucially, when you train as part of a small group personal training programme, you are instantly taking the positive step towards building more accountability into your training programme– which is one of the most positive and beneficial things you can do! Suddenly not only do you have the personal trainer closely monitoring your progress and pushing you forward when required – you also benefit from having the other members of the group tracking your progress and giving you that extra little push exactly when you need it the most! Again it’s truly a win-win situation for everyone included within the group – and yet another reason why small group personal training can be such a powerful and effective method of achieving your personal training goals. No wonder it’s a form of training that continues to grow ever-more popular year after year

    HIIT training is on Sat at 7am and Sunday at 7am. £3 on the door. See you there!

  • Tips on How to Start Doing Pull-Ups

    If there is one question we get asked the most as instructors its - "How do i do a pull up"

    Before we get into exercises to progress into a pull-up, let’s chat about some general strategies:

    #1) This should hopefully be obvious, but the more you weigh, the more you have to lift in order to complete a pull-up.

    If you’re truly serious about completing a pull-up, start by getting your diet under control.

    #2) MAKE YOUR “PULL” EXERCISES A PRIORITY. A lot of people do every other exercise before doing any back-related exercises, if they do any at all.

    After warming up properly, your first exercise should always be the stuff that you want to work on the most – in this case it’ll be your back muscles.

    Until you get your first pull-up done, focus on the back exercises detailed in the levels and workouts below.

    #3) The progression below is a path that works for most people, but does NOT need to be followed to a T.

    I give sample sets and reps and when to move up, but if you feel like you can progress sooner or want to try doing full pull-ups sooner than I recommend, that’s OKAY.

    This is the slower progression method, where some people will want to do fewer reps and progress to the next levels sooner – that’s okay.

    What exercises compliment the pull up

    Level 1 Pull-up Workout: Bent Over Dumbbell Rows

    Level 2Pull-Up Workout: Inverted Bodyweight Rows

    Level 3 Pull-Up Workout: Assisted Pull-Ups

    Level 4 Pull-Up Workout: Negative Pull-Ups

    Level 5 – Doing Your First Pull-up or Chin-up

    2. SPORT SPECIFIC

    If you play a sport, run races or are looking to start. A personal trainer can get you on the tight track and give you the best chance to succeed.

    3. FASTER AND BETTER RESULTS

    Having a personal trainer to guide you through your fitness routine will help make sure you are spending time on the proper types of exercise. If you only have a limited amount of time to work out, a personal trainer will make sure you get the best results possible for the amount of time that you put it.

    4. PROPER FAT LOSS AND MUSCLE GAIN

    Most people have multiple goals when working out, the most common being fat loss and muscle gain. It’s often hard to find the right balance between these two, and a personal trainer can help you find the right exercises to achieve all of your goals.

    5. REDUCED CHANCE OF INJURY

    A personal trainer will teach you the proper form and technique to use during your workout so you can stay safe and injury-free.

  • 6 Benefits of Morning Exercise

    A morning workout is a fantastic way to start your day – for multiple reasons. Getting your recommended 30 mins of recommend exercise each day can be difficult for many people. Between juggling family priorities and working your nine to five, you can always find an excuse to skip the gym. However, making it a habit to exercise right after you get up in the morning might just be the ultimate solution to keep yourself motivated.
    We know that it’s tempting to snooze for as long as possible instead of getting up to hit the gym before work. But if you can make it a habit to get your daily exercise in before you get to the office, you’ll feel more accomplished, confident, and enjoy many health benefits.

    Check out six amazing benefits of morning exercise below:

    Established routine. Working out first thing in the morning is an excellent way to establish a routine. Once an exercise routine is established, you’ll be a lot less likely to skip the gym. After two months of morning workouts, you’ll be a pro!

    More energy. Morning workouts are one of the best ways to feel energized and prepared for your day. In fact, a morning workout might even give you more energy than a cup of coffee! You’ll receive an instant energy boost and increased mental clarity that will lead to a productive day.

    Better mood. Expect to feel happier after a morning workout. Breaking an early morning sweat will reward you with a rush of endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine – feel-good chemicals that will boost your mood and help zap stress. Plus, you’re guaranteed to feel happier knowing that you started your day with doing something amazing for yourself and your health.

    Improved sleep. Exercise, in general, is known to promote better sleep. However, exercising in the evening can make it harder to fall asleep at night (as it boosts your endorphins). One study found that participants who exercised at 7 a.m. experienced deeper, long sleep than those who exercised in the afternoon or evening. Morning workouts are the best way to reap all of the sleep benefits of exercise.

    Lower blood pressure. Regular exercise is fantastic for helping to prevent hypertension. As it turns out, exercising in the morning might be even better! The same study mentioned previously also found that early morning exercise is best for reducing blood pressure. Researchers found that those who worked out in the morning reduced their blood pressure by 10%, and this reduction of blood pressure carried through the remainder of the day.

    Less stress. Doesn’t it sound lovely to walk into your office free from any built-up stress and tension? Breaking a sweat before work will lower your body’s cortisol levels (stress hormones). Exercise will also help relieve tension and relax your muscles, which helps to fight the negative effects that stress has on your body.

  • Using a workout schedule can be the deciding factor in your weight loss success formula. While any physical exercise is certainly better than none at all, seeing results greatly depends on consistency, frequency and efficiency.

    Consistency

    Life happens in sometimes very unpredictable ways, but we always make it to work or to doctor appointments. Unless you schedule your workouts in the same way you might fall off the exercise wagon rather sooner than later due to simply "being busy."

    Reaching your weight loss goals requires consistent effort. A random walk around the block may temporarily relieve your guilty conscience, but it certainly won't melt that stubborn belly fat. Choose specific days and times for your physical activity and stick to them. Before you know it you will be celebrating the mile stones of your gradual progress.

    Frequency

    Although it is important to fit your workout schedule around your other obligations, you can hardly expect to get a six-pack from doing ten crunches once a week. If you are serious about slimming down, or toning up, you have to be realistic and put in enough effort to make it happen. Working out less than three times a week might help with weight maintenance, but in order to keep your metabolism in over-drive you have to commit to working out on at least four to six days a week.

    Efficiency

    Science has come a long way, even in the fields of exercise and weight loss. Instead of wasting your time with boring workouts that fail to produce the desired results, you can now take advantage of proven formulas. The fitness master minds behind sculpting the hot bodies in Hollywood have figured out that it is possible to achieve dramatic results in a short time period without plastic surgery. They had their clients tweak their workout frequency, intensity and nutrition to reach their optimal results.

    While the basic equation of weight loss equals reduced calories consumed minus calories burned still applies, the perfect timing, intensity and frequency of your workout can dramatically speed up your results. But not to worry, you don't have to figure these factors out for yourself. There are plenty of effective workout programs available that take the guess work out of successful training. The much acclaimed P90X and Insanity workout programs by Beachbody? are excellent examples of programs to help you reach your goals.

  • Eating the Right Foods for Exercise

    Eating a well-balanced diet can help you get the calories and nutrients you need to fuel your daily activities, including regular exercise.

    When it comes to eating foods to fuel your exercise performance, it’s not as simple as choosing vegetables over doughnuts. You need to eat the right types of food at the right times of the day.

    Learn about the importance of healthy breakfasts, workout snacks, and meal plans.

    Protein is needed to help keep your body growing, maintained, and repaired. For example, the University of Rochester Medical Center reports that red blood cells die after about 120 days.

    Protein is also essential for building and repairing muscles, helping you enjoy the benefits of your workout. It can be a source of energy when carbohydrates are in short supply, but it’s not a major source of fuel during exercise.

    Adults need to eat about 0.8 grams of protein per day for every kilogram of their body weight, reports Harvard Health Blog. That’s equal to about 0.36 grams of protein for every pound of body weight. Exercisers and older adults may need even more.

    Protein can come from:

    • poultry, such as chicken and turkey
    • red meat, such as beef and lamb
    • fish, such as salmon and tuna
    • dairy, such as milk and yogurt
    • legumes, such as beans and lentils
    • eggs

    For the healthiest options, choose lean proteins that are low in saturated and trans fats. Limit the amount of red meat and processed meats that you eat.

    Fruits and vegetables are rich sources of natural fiber, vitamins, minerals, and other compounds that your body needs to function properly. They’re also low in calories and fat.

    Aim to fill half your plate with fruits and veggies at every meal, recommends the United States Department of Agriculture.

    Try to “eat the rainbow” by choosing fruits and veggies of different colors. This will help you enjoy the full range of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that the produce aisle has to offer.

    Every time you go to the grocery store, consider choosing a new fruit or vegetable to try. For snacks, keep dried fruits in your workout bag and raw veggies in the fridge.

    Unsaturated fats may help reduce inflammation and provide calories.

    While fat is a primary fuel for aerobic exercise, we have plenty stored in the body to fuel even the longest workouts. However, getting healthy unsaturated fats helps to provide essential fatty acids and calories to keep you moving.

    Healthy options include:

    • nuts
    • seeds
    • avocados
    • olives
    • oils, such as olive oil

    When it comes to fueling up before or after a workout, it’s important to achieve the right balance of carbs and protein. Pre-workout snacks that combine carbohydrates with protein can make you feel more energized than junk foods made from simple sugars and lots of fat.

    Consider stocking your workout bag and refrigerator with some of these simple snacks.

  • ARE YOU DOING THESE Dumbbell Exercises ??

    Getting a new body doesn’t have to be complicated. Whether you’re aiming for rapid fat loss, bulging muscles or cardiovascular fitness, a pair of dumbbells will tick the box – providing you use them correctly. Increasing your dumbbell dexterity with a few extra free weight exercises will get you to your goals faster.

    1. Goblet Squat

    How: Stand with feet set wider than shoulder-width and hold a dumbbell with both hands in front of your chest. Sit back into a squat, then drive back up and repeat.

    Why: Are you a nervous newbie or a long-time hard gainer? It doesn’t matter with this move. Goblet squats are perfect for any level. They specifically target glute activation whilst improving both hip and thoracic mobility.

    2. Farmers’ Walk

    How: Walk forward taking short, quick steps. Go for the given distance, as fast as possible.

    Why: There’s no technique to worry about, but you’ll still supercharge your grip strength. And don’t worry, this lack of technique won’t get you injured; through a process called irradiation, this move bunches your rotator cuff, protecting your shoulders.

    3. Two Arm Dumbbell Stiff Legged Deadlift

    How: Lower the dumbbells to the top of your feet, as far as you can go by extending through your waist, then slowly return to the starting position.

    Why: It shreds your legs into powerful pins by targeting your fast-twitch lower-body muscles. Plus, stiff legged deadlifts ensure your entire posterior chain is functioning effectively and prevents hip and lower back injuries. It’s one of the best free weight exercises to build up your lower body – injury free.

    4. One Arm Swing

    How: Sink into a squat and swing the dumbbell through your legs before immediately driving yourself forward, bringing the weight up towards your head as you straighten your legs. Repeat this movement, then swap sides.

    Why: With proper form this swing will not only recruit muscles within your posterior chain but it will also build your grip strength, co-ordination, lower back muscles, quadriceps and shoulders. In other words, it’ll give you the momentum your body transformation workout needs. Most of these traditional kettlebell moves can be replicated.

  • Fell Off The Health Wagon Over Easter? Here's How To Get Back On Track

    Returning to healthy eating and exercise doesn't have to be a pain.

    If you've just consumed more hot cross buns, chocolate bunnies and eggs and booze than you care to remember, welcome.

    While letting go and enjoying Easter treats is only natural, it can feel overwhelming if you now face getting back on the health train. Let's be real, the idea of going from chocolate for breakfast to kale salads is not fun.

    But there's good news -- getting back to eating healthily and exercising doesn't have to be a punishment. And you don't have to feel guilty for treating yourself.

    Remember it is all about moderation and balance. If you do have an Easter blow out don't beat yourself up. Simply get back on track the next day.

    The odd indulgence will not have a negative effect on your long term health. It's what you do repetitively every day that has the biggest impact.

    If you've fallen off the health wagon, follow these four tips. You'll get back into the swing of things before you know it.

    1. Start small and plan three workouts

    Instead of over-doing it and planning to exercise six days a week following Easter, we recommend easing back into it.

    2. Don't restrict calories

    Although it may be tempting to cut calories in order to make up for all the eaten chocolate, restricting can leave you worse off in terms of training endurance and food intake.

    3. Commit to a regular routine

    Setting the same days of the week as 'workout days' can be super helpful in helping to form healthy habits and routines.

    4. Integrate more fibre-rich whole foods

    Once you feel like you've got a (slight) handle on reducing junk food, increase your intake of fibre-rich whole foods like fruit and veggies, which will help keep you full for longer -- and less likely to reach for treats.

    We hope you enjoyed Easter.
