Let's face it ladies , if you are training hard you know that Correct Gym wear is a necessity not just a want. You really do need garments that can go the distance,  realistically something that you can forget you are actually wearing! . Think the garment becomes you! .

You need to train hard and have no worry about clothing doing odd things, whilst getting those squats in. Clothing with moving comfort to keep you in pole position!. Fabrics that support you are a must, advanced moisture wicking fabrics for temperature control that really move with you. Whether your “bad” is running, lifting , ballet fusion , power bounce , yoga, after gym social  or ermmm the splits. Whatever your pose or move. This month , I have gone undercover to  investigate  the best training pants. I had the opportunity to quiz 7 of the hottest,  current  Brand Founders & Designers about their garments and why we should be wearing their range. So forget everything you ever thought you knew about gym wear and listen to the 7 designers that you really need to know about.

Introduction -The Story So far.....

As I have truly discovered, the Sweat Room Trainers don't just talk about it , they also are about it! . Not satisfied with just heading the Sweat Room classes​ such as​ Power Bounce,​ Sweat Fit &​ TRX​ plus all of those​ PT sessions​  Sweat Room has on offer. On a regular basis you will see Sweat Pro’s Paula, Alex, Tom & Lauren , participate in active challenge's outside of sweat room's door. This could be for a good cause , like the British heart foundation​ or simply to push themselves out of their own comfort zone in their training.The events are fun, team spirited , motivating but challenging, for all levels of fitness and ultimately you walk away with an amazing feeling of "yes , we smashed it". After all people as far as I can see , there is no i in Team!.

Bounce! You got the Power!

Here at Sweat Blog HQ, I have been keeping a beady eye on those Personal Trainers at Sweat Room.

We all know that Personal trainer’s talk the talk, but do they really walk the walk, are PT sessions just for the glamorous or can we all benefit from this type of training? Plus, do these trainers work as hard as we do on their fitness goals behind the closed gym door! Or is it all sofa surfing kettle chips & Netflix when our backs are turned.

Train insane but please don’t remain the same

Don’t eat this , eat that! , don’t eat carbs eat fat , no sleep , some sleep, train every day or 3 times a week. Do we rewind to when grandma told us to eat our greens, drink endless red bull , have early nights or is there another story? Who should you believe & what should you really be doing to support all the hard work you put in at your training room.
