Many of us do not get enough physical activity on a weekly basis. Whether it’s due to the darker nights and colder weather, your job or looking after the kids, it’s often easier to find excuses not to train than it is to find reasons to get started.

It’s also important to ensure you are eating the right foods while exercising as your body needs to be able to perform and recover during any exercise session.
