Surviving Christmas - so much food, so little exercise?

 Christmas can be difficult – but we can help you.  

Such a lot of food – so little exercise – do you look forward to these days (seems like 5 of them this year!) or do you dread them – fearful of what they will do to your body?  

At Forefront Fitness we think it’s all about balance.  

It’s about admitting that Christmas day might be a blow out but we can reign it back in on Boxing Day (and go for a walk!).  it has been a difficult year – be kind to yourself and do the best you can.

Five gold rings (sorry – rules) 

• Don’t count the calories – just counting random calories won’t really help– you could eat your daily allowance in Mars bars and that won’t help you to mange your weight (nor your blood sugar!)  Aim to make every calorie count – so before you eat something consider; - is this going to do me any good?  If not – don’t eat the whole packet! 

• Eat your veg – those dreaded Brussel sprouts that haunt our Christmas plates are actually really good for you.  Eat plenty of green veg, top up with carrots and any amount of good salad veg and then you can go steady on the sugar laden fruit but still get your 5 a day

• Make it yourself – whenever possible, cook from scratch. That way you know what is in it and how its been cooked.  Heavily processed food (think take away and ready meals) are OK once in a while but the bulk of your food should be stuff you have made yourself with fresh ingredients.  

• Choose protein – eggs, meat, fish, beans and pulses are great sources.  Protein is essential for building and maintaining muscle mass.  Try to eat protein every mealtime and you may find that you need fewer carbs.  Having said that – we all need carbohydrate but go for the complex (slow release) variety, not the sugary quick fixes.  So, keep off the biscuits, cakes and sweets; avoid white bread, rice and pasta and try porridge, sweet potatoes and butternut squash.

• Eat some fat – gone are the times when we all avoided fats – what we need is a portion of the ‘good’ fats everyday.  You can get those from oily fish, nuts, seeds and olive oil.  We need these types of fats to fully metabolize all the nutrients contained in the other foods that we eat.  Oh – and please avoid ‘low fat’ options on foods – usually these are over processed and have added sugar to make them palatable.  

So Christmas need not be a disaster – remember portion control and go light on the Quality Street and all will be well (as long as you don’t go overboard on the booze!!)  Let’s face it – 2021 has got to be an improvement on 2020!

Re-Opening 2nd December

 We will re-open at 06:30 on Wednesday 2nd December, we look forward to seeing you all again.

Surviving Lockdown 2.0

 Here we go again; stay at home, don’t go out, don’t see any body and above all, don’t go to the gym

So – what can we do?

Here’s a few ideas of what not to do:

• Don’t mope about – it won’t help anything

• Don’t stay in bed all day

• Alcohol is great – but please don’t drink before lunch time – that 2pm Zoom conference just won’t go well

• Opening that bag of your favourite sweets is sooo tempting – just don’t – you know what will happen next!

• And above all – please don’t just sit about

OK – that’s the bad bits – here are some ideas that really work:

• GO OUTSIDE. Every. Single. Day – without fail, come rain or shine.  Don’t worry about how many steps – just get out there.  Listen to a book, a podcast, music, make a phone call.  Anything – but get some fresh air.  

• Find a routine that works and keep to it.  At times of uncertainty we need to keep a grip on everything that we can – get up at roughly the same time day (preferably before 10.00!), keep things regular, do your washing, cook proper meals, make your bed.  If you don’t it all feels out of control.  Make order out of the chaos

• Eat proper meals – yes, peanut butter on toast 5 times a day will stop you feeling hungry, but it won’t provide you with the nutrients you need.  We can go food shopping or get the basics delivered.  You know what we always say – even the best car engines won’t run well if we put in the wrong fuel.  

• Lift some weights.  Muscles shrivel if they don’t get used – if you have dumbbells at home – great – use them.  If not – body weight exercises are a good alternative – think press ups, squats, lunges, planks, abs crunches, mountain climbers.

• Get some sleep – yes, iPlayer is great – but ‘just one more episode’ leads to late nights and short sleep spans.  Save it for tomorrow – something to look forward to 

• And please – reach out to someone – reach out if you need support – the gym staff are there for you.   But also – drop an email or a text to a friend – you might just be the one person that makes a big difference

Closing 9pm Wednesday 4th November

 So on Saturday, the news nobody wanted was announced. We will be returning to lockdown this Thursday and as a result we will have to close the gym. In line with the government instruction, we will be closing at 9pm on Wednesday. We will of course update our website and Facebook should anything change.

For those of you who choose to keep your membership payments active, a big thank you. That helps us to survive as a business and open fully as soon as possible.

Stay safe everyone and make the most of the next three days!

Is it safe to come to the gym

 We understand that many people are concerned about the risk of contracting Covid-19 at the current time and at Forefront Fitness we have taken precautions to ensure your safety. All equipment has been spaced out as much as possible and is cleaned after use by our members. Our staff are also cleaning throughout the day and we are fogging the gym on a regular basis to further clean and disinfect all areas.

The latest evidence suggests that catching COVID-19 in a gym environment is low.

Tuesday, 13 October 2020

Need a bit of company?

Going to the gym is about so much more than a bit of a sweat.  We are all under huge pressure just now – lockdowns, masks, job insecurity and a lack of social events.  Many of our usual coping mechanisms just don’t exist at the moment.  

Difficult as it is, we have to find ways of dealing with what is happening and one great way is getting to the gym.  Quite apart from the well researched knowledge that working out is great for your mental health – coming to the gym is somewhere to meet people and to chat.

Right now we are likely to be very isolated and its quite possible to go for several days with only a muffled few words passing your lips.  The gym is a great place to chat while you work out and compare COVID stories (or not talk about the wretched pandemic at all – which is a relief in itself!) 

At Forefront Fitness there is always a member of staff on duty and we are only too happy to pass the time of day with you.  Even if you don’t feel up to doing much in the way of talking (or working out for that matter) – just come on in.  Getting out of the house is a bonus, getting in a few steps has got to be good and if you lift a few weights – well, you’re on a winner.  

Drag yourself away from your desk, the TV, the kids and drop into the gym.  We can almost guarantee you will feel a bit better when you leave!

Helping to stop the spread of Coronavirus

To help stop the spread of Coronavirus, we are required by law to display a QR Code at the entrance to the gym. 

We ask that where possible you scan the code using the NHS COVID-19 App. There are 3 copies of the QR code displayed around the gym, so you won't have to queue. 

Thank you for your understanding.

Everything in moderation

 I can almost guarantee that if you are told not to eat ice cream ever again (or whatever your favourite snack might be) then you will crave it and think about it at least 10 times a day.  But if you are told ‘eat some ice cream – but not the whole tub and not every day’ then there is a much better chance that you will limit your intake.  

If you go to the gym every single day and work out like crazy for a couple of hours – then you will get injured and burnt out.  Go every other day and don’t work out for more than an hour and you will get results and won’t be so exhausted that you can barely move.  

It’s really important to find a regime that works for you.  One that gets results but doesn’t make you feel like you are being punished.  ‘Everything in moderation’ is a good mantra. 

• Have a glass of wine – but one glass a couple of times a week

• Eat some chocolate – a couple of squares – not the whole bar

• Grab a bag of crisps – a treat, once a week

• Go for a run / bike ride / swim but it doesn’t have to be a PB – aim to enjoy it 

• Workout in the gym – but don’t aim to do every exercise you have ever thought of every time with the biggest weight you can manage

Do the best you can but live life to the full – being healthy is what keeps us going.  And keeping going is worth celebrating with a treat now and again !

What happens if you don’t keep moving?

 ‘Use it or lose it’?   I’m sure you have heard that many times.  But it’s true – if you don’t keep moving it will get harder to move.  

Muscles need to move – and if you sit about all day then things start to go wrong;

1. Your legs and glutes (muscles in your bum) get weak (atrophy)  if you sit all day – leading to lack of stability and risk of falling

2. You gain weight – when you move your muscles release molecules that help to process the fat and sugars that you eat – in the absence of these then the weight creeps up

3. Your hip flexors shorten and your hips and back get tight (and sore) 

4. Your mental health can suffer

5. Your heart muscles don’t like you being sedentary so your risk of heart disease increases – as does your risk of DVT (blood clots), strokes, varicose veins and diabetes 

You know that when you come to the gym and do an effective workout you build muscle.  Research has shown that it is possible to build muscle into a grand old age – so it’s never too late.

Don’t lose muscle – you need it to support your joints – the bone might wear a bit thin – but good strong muscles will keep supporting those joints into old age.  

Don’t lose your strength – get up, get moving and get to the gym!

How is your mental health?

Mental wellbeing (according to the Mental Health Foundation is;
The sense of feeling good about ourselves and being able to function well individually or in relationships
The ability to deal with the ups and downs of life, such as coping with challenges and making the most of opportunities

The feeling of connection to our community and surroundings

Having control and freedom over our lives

Having a sense of purpose and feeling valued

The last few months have been, we think you will all agree, testing.  Most people have had times when they have felt very anxious and because we weren’t able to do some of the things we usually do to cope – we have struggled to get through.  

At Forefront Fitness we know this – we know that we haven’t all felt good about ourselves and that we haven’t always functioned well.  We know that things we might have usually dealt with easily have been a real challenge and that our sense of community has been tested.  One of the most difficult things has been the lack of control over our lives and often not much idea of purpose to each day.  

Now is your chance to get back on track.  We know, for sure, that exercise helps to improve mental health.  Its been proven time after time.  Many studies show how exercise helps with mood and a sense of wellbeing.  

Coming back to the gym will help more than just your body – getting your heart rate up will release those endorphins – you’ll feel better when you’re doing it and for hours afterwards.  Do it regularly (exercise that is) and not only will your body thank you – so will your mind.  Now is the time to take charge of your life again.  

Pop in – we will be delighted to see you and to show you how the gym is a safe place to exercise.

Eating an elephant

I don’t know about you, but I feel that I have eaten a fair few elephants during lockdown.  When all there was to do was eat  - that’s what I did.

I was thinking about this as a started my crossword today (bear with me – I’m going somewhere with this) – Friday it was – the compiler on Friday is a tough one and it was a hard puzzle.  I glanced through the clues – no answers at all sprang to mind.  Now on a good day I can sail through and often fill in most straight off.  I therefore decided that I couldn’t do the crossword and I might as well abandon it.

Then I thought of my elephants – of course I didn’t eat each elephant at one sitting – I ate them bit by bit – but I got through them.

So I tackled each crossword clue one at a time and began to fill in the grid – one clue helping the next one along.  Gradually I managed to do a few clues, then I left it for a while and came back and I could do a few more.  Some clues I knew I would never get (I looked those up!) – but I managed nearly all of them – I did it bit by bit.

Why am I telling you this?  Because that’s how we are all going to return to fitness – bit by bit.  If we hit the gym on the first day that we can and try to do everything at once we won’t succeed but if we gradually tackle one bit and then another – we will get there.  There will be things we can’t do and some bits will be tough – but if we persevere – all will be well.

Its only an elephant and you know you can get through it – now – does anyone know what 6 down is?

Reopening 25th July

Good news!! We will reopen on Saturday 25th July.

Home workouts

It's important to keep active during this period of lockdown, follow us on Facebook for regular home workouts.

Tuesday, 24 March 2020

Home Workout No. 1

As we are all now staying at home we thought we would share some exercises that you can do in the comfort of your own home. Also featuring Brodie the dog!

Star Jumps 3  x 30 seconds
Think school PE! Stand tall with your arms buy your side and knees slightly bent. Jump up, extending your arms and legs out into a star shape in the air. Land softly, with your knees together and hands by your side. 

Push Ups 3 x 10
Start in the high plank position with hands shoulder width apart, lower yourself to the floor and push yourself up. Aim to have your elbows no greater than 45 degrees out from your body. Inhale as you go down and exhale as you push yourself up.

Tricep Dips 3 x 10
The further your feet ae from the chair, the harder the movement. Grip the chair with your hands and lower yourself until your elbows are bent between 45 and 90 degrees. then push yourself up to your starting position.

Bodyweight Squats 3 x 12
Start with your feet shoulder width apart and hold your hands straight out in front of you. Lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Pause, then return to the starting position. Repeat

Leg Raises. 3 x 12
Lie on your back, legs straight and together. Keep your legs straight and lift them up towards the ceiling, aim to get them to 90 degrees and then slowly lower your legs back down till they're just above the floor. Hold for a moment and raise your legs back up. Repeat.

Hip Thrusts 3 x 12
Start by laying down with your back on the floor, then draw your feet in towards your hips, feet flat to the floor, shins vertical. Rest your arms on the floor at your sides. Push your feet into the floor and then push your hips up until they align with your shoulders and knees. From that position, lower your hips back to the floor and repeat the movement by raising and lowering them.

Monday, 23 March 2020

Forefront Fitness Gym Announcement

Why come to the gym?

Are you unsure whether to come to the gym or not?  We do know that being fit boosts your immune system and therefore your ability to fight infections.  

We intend to keep open for as long as we can.  All of us who work in the gym are healthy and of course, we would stay away if we weren’t.  We are here for you.

We are cleaning frequently and leaving the cleaning materials out for you to clean the kit before you use it if you would like to.

The windows are open so the air is changed frequently.  We are all washing our hands and using the hand gel.

The decision to come to the gym is, of course, yours – but please rest assured that we are doing our best to make it as safe as it can be.

Thank you for your support and loyalty

Tuesday, 17 March 2020

Forefront Fitness and Coronavirus

We are open and here for you all.

We have always prided ourselves on keeping the gym clean and tidy but we are stepping up our cleaning regime and will be wiping over all the hand touched surfaces throughout the day.

We will not be in the least bit offended if you want to wipe any surface with our cleaning spray or sanitising gel before you use it.

The basin in the loo has plenty of soap and paper towels so please wash your hands as often as you like.

Obviously, if you consider that you are developing any of the symptoms of the virus please stay away until you have recovered (for the safety of others)

Other than that – its business as usual and remember that being fit boosts your immune system

Monday, 9 March 2020

Boost your immune system

We can all do things to boost our immune system which will help to fight off germs that we encounter.

I am very keen to keep the panic down about whatever might or might not be circulating right now – but we all need to be able to deal with the myriad of bugs that always  circulate , especially at this time of the year.  

We are bombarded with pathogens all the time – our white cells step up to the mark and deal with these invasions.  A healthy lifestyle will mean that your body is in the best condition to deal with these onslaughts.  

·        Starting with our gut microbiomes – these form protective barriers and programme our immune systems.  Inflammatory diseases reduce the number of good gut bacteria (as does being old).  We can help by eating a varied, high fibre diet.  The addition of fermented foods is thought to help – have such things as kefir, sauerkraut and kimchi for example.  

·        Skin microbiomes are important – too much UVA is damaging as is over washing with strong soap. 

·         Exercise is an imperative for immunologically fitness.  Exercise helps to mobilise the otherwise somewhat sedentary white cells.  We should be aiming for at least 150 minutes of moderate activity a week.  And as we always say – older people are not exempt – we all need to exercise too (if you’re not sure what to do – just ask - it’s what I do all the time)

·        An additional benefit is that exercise reduces the stress hormone, cortisol, and that helps to boost immunity.  

·        Keep the alcohol levels down – heavy drinking depletes our immune cells 

·        Watch your Vitamin D levels – you might need a boost in the winter with a good quality supplement

·         Get some sleep – a tired body is much more susceptible to bugs

·        Oh -and yes – wash your hands – not just because there’s a new bug on the block – but because it’s a good, basic hygiene discipline!

5 minute tips for your heart

Here’s the last in the series – we’ve looked, thanks to Dr Chaterjee at Mind and Body and here’s some five minute tips for your heart 

Remember – the aim is one of each (Mind, Body and Heart) 5 times a week 


This is all about the power of connection

Try talking to a stranger – the lady at the checkout, the person looking a bit lost in the supermarket (I’ve tried it – no one thinks you’re mad and if they don’t want to chat – they won’t – but I talked to a woman and said that I thought her outfit was awesome and she said I had made her day – she hadn’t been a bit sure about wearing it and was so pleased – I felt good and so did she!)

Write down five things you love about someone who is close to you.  Dr Chatterjee says that his patients feel happier, calmer, less resentful and more patient when they do this – give it a try – what have you got to lose?!

Have a cup of tea with a friend – give them your attention – no phones, no TV – just chat to them – it feeds your heart

And of course -  do a RAK – a Random Act of Kindness – help that older person with his tray in the cafĂ© – that young mother struggling with her shopping and her crying child. There is always something you can do to help someone everyday – you might have to step out of your comfort  zone – but I can guarantee that it will be worth it.  

There are lots more ideas in the book – we’re not on a commission but I really do recommend that you buy it –

Five minutes – three times a day – its got to be worth it ! 

Tuesday, 28 January 2020

Workouts for the mind

We are going back to Dr Chaterjee’s ‘Feel Better in 5’ 

You’ve had a couple of ‘Body’ 5 minute workouts and here are some ideas for 5 minutes for your Mind

How about just pouring it all out onto paper?

Try just writing down everything that’s on your mind for five minutes – and then?  Burn it!  A great way to dump it out of your mind – of course – you don’t have to burn it – but you may not want it lying around!

Or how about 5 minutes outside?  I know that I have to get outside everyday – try it – take your early morning coffee outside – or, of course, go for a walk!  

Or even 5 minutes of painting, drawing or maybe knitting – get stuck into a hobby – or just read a book – 5 minutes doing something creative that you enjoy

Or even five minutes concentrating on your breathing – there are some good breathing techniques in the book – basically – slow your breathing down and become much more aware of taking full breaths and breathing out slowly again.

Your mind will be helped by good nutrition – low sugar, unprocessed foods every time.  So – eat well, breathe deeply and be creative – your mind will really appreciate it!

The HIIT Squad!

This time – the HIIT Squad

A more advanced workout ! 

·         Burpees

·         Shoulder taps

·         Squat jumps

·         Mountain climbers

Do each exercise in sequence for one minute at full intensity then rest for fifteen seconds between each one


From a standing position, drop down into a squat with your hands on the ground just in front of your feet

Kick your feet out behind you, keeping your arms straight so that you end up at the starting press- up position

Jump your feet back towards your hands and return to the squat position

Return to standing by jumping up in the air whilst raising your arms above your head

Shoulder taps

Position yourself as if you are about to start a press-up.  From there, bring your right hand up to touch your left shoulder

Return your right hand to the floor and then bring your left hand up to touch your right shoulder

Alternate between the two sides as quickly as possible, making sure your core and glutes are tight and engaged throughout the entire movement.  You’ll know you are doing this because your body will remain fairly static and stable and the only thing moving will be your arms

Squat jumps

Start in a squat position with your feet shoulder width apart, and your thighs parallel to the ground.  Your knees should be in line with your toes and your chest upright

From this position, jump as high as you can, raising your arms into the air at the same time

Try to land back in your squat position as softly as possible

Mountain climbers

Place yourself in a traditional press-up position, on your palms and toes.  Your hands should be directly under your shoulders and you should feel as if your pelvis is being tucked under your body so the arch in your lower back disappears

Bring your right foot off the ground and bring the right knee forward under your chest

Return your right foot to the press up position and switch legs

Continue, quickly alternating between legs; this is a fast movement

Only 5 minutes of exercise

So, do you fancy trying one of Dr Chatterjee’s exercise sets?  

He recommends that we use these time intervals;

·         Beginner – 20 seconds on and 40 seconds off

·         Intermediate – 30 seconds on and 30 seconds off

·         Advanced – 40 seconds on and 20 seconds off

How about ‘Easy Kneesy’ ?

This is;

·         High knees with shoulder press

·         Squat with knee to hand

·         Straight punches

·         Sitting arm punch

·         Press up on knees

Don’t forget that this is only five minutes of exercise (we can talk about what he suggests in other five minutes in another blog)

High knees

March on the spot, brining your knees up as high as you can

Each time one of your knees comes up, push hands upwards towards the ceiling

As the knee returns to the ground, bring both arms down to your sides

Squat with knee to hand

Squat down as low as you can go with your arms out in front of you

Come back up to standing.  As you do so, lift your left knee up to touch your right hand

Do the same the other side

Straight Punches

Stand up straight with a very slight bend in your knees

Make a fist with both hands and bring up to your chest

Punch out each arm in front of you, alternating between left and right

Keep your arms level with your chest and look straight ahead

Sitting arm punch

Sit on the ground with your knees bent in front of you and your feet flat on the floor

Lean back a little until you feel your stomach muscles engage

Make sure you are feeling comfortable in this position

From this position, punch alternate arms into the air

Press- up on knees

Get down into a press up position but drop both knees to the floor.  Make sure your hands are under your shoulders

Keep your elbows tucked into your side as you lower yourself down towards the floor

Return to the starting position

Feel better in 5

Dr Rangan Chatterjee has got another book out – it’s called ‘Feel Better in 5’ and is packed with tips to improve your Mind, Body and Heart.

This book claims that with five minutes, three times a day, five days a week you can make lasting and worthwhile changes.

Sounds too good to be true?  I was sceptical but I have read this book from cover to cover and its great – I thoroughly recommend it.  It is packed with practical tips that you can start straight away. 

So I got thinking – how can Forefront Fitness help its members using the information gained from this book?  We are going to reproduce the exercises for you – so over the next few weeks you will be seeing more posts with a five-minute routine for you to do.  I tried the easy one this morning – and even though I work out regularly – it was a challenge (but I have to admit it’s the first time I’ve tried press ups with a dog on my back!)
