Fitness Myth Busting with Craig Simpson

If you have ever joined a gym or taken up a new fitness routine then the type of exercise you should be doing, what you should eat and how often you should train are all things people will have had an opinion on. But does that mean they are correct? Craig Simpson, a Personal trainer with KAL, will be dispelling common fitness myths.

Week 1 – will doing sit ups give me abs?

Do you covet other people’s 6 packs and then wonder why no matter how many sits ups you do yours doesn’t quite seem to be as good? Craig might have the answer

Week 2 – will lifting weights make you bulky?

We’ve all heard the comments in the gym that if you don’t want to bulk up you should avoid lifting weights, but is that really the case Craig?

Week 3 – Balancing Calories

We’ve all heard it and maybe even said it; ‘I am going to have this cake, I did do a run this morning so it’s fine’ but is it true that just because we have done some exercise we can reward-eat whatever we want?

Week 4 – Supplements

If you have been in any supermarket or local shop lately you will have noticed everything has added protein! But is it all necessary?  

Week 5 - Protein

Following on from last week’s video about supplements, this week Simply Fit Personal Training Craig Simpson is covering protein in more detail

Week 6 - Protein (part 2) 

If you caught last week's video then we're sure you have been eagerly awaiting this one! Protein part 2

Week 7 - How often should I exercise? 

Every day? 4 times a week? It can be difficult to know how often you should be working out. Luckily we have Simply Fit PT, Craig Simpson here to shed some light on this.

This is Craig’s last video in this series, we hope you have enjoyed it?
