Had a great Boogie Bounce session this week. The instructor made it really fun. My face muscles also got a good workout as a result of smiling so much. Thank you!
Thank you for joining me tonight, what a great sweaty session. Well done ladies.
I took part in my first yoga class last night and it was honestly amazing. I was a little nervous about the idea of yoga but the class was so relaxing and enjoyable throughout. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you so much
Who would fancy doing this? ###
Hi everyone (i'v been asked to post) four weeks ago I started my boogie bounce journey. I've not exercised for many years, and kept putting this off , with one excuse after another.... I signed up for revolution course and loved it.. with the other women I've been encouraged to attend a mid week class as well.

I'v now attended 8 classes, and booked a pass to see me through the summer...

Yesterday I weighed myself... I'm 16lbs lighter, lost 2 inches from my waist , 2 inches from hips, 2 inches from bust and 1 from under bust.

I know that I won't loose this much weight this fast again .. iv been eating health and cut out fizzy drinks, sugar and junk... and feel great

For someone who started to not like herself i'v started to find myself , meet lovely encouraging people who have made me so welcome and i can smile again....

Thanks every one x

Bouncing on a Boogie Bounce Trampoline can help by reducing the impact and stress to joints when exercising by providing a soft gradual landing while distributing the increased G-forces equally. This means joints and muscles can be strengthened without the cost usually associated with the high impact nature of running for example.

Even NASA agrees that bouncing is “the most efficient and effective exercise yet devised by man”. Studies by NASA scientists show that bouncing around on a mini trampoline is 68% more effective than jogging and yet requires less effort! Rebounding is also encouraged by NASA to improve the bone density of astronauts returning from the zero gravity environment of space, which can help reduce injuries such as fractures!

For all our Scottish friends, have a wonderful Burns Night.

Physical activity has plenty of benefits, so it may not surprise you to learn improved cognition is among them. So if you are experiencing a bit of brain fog, taking some form of physical activity can help.

Exercise can help:

improve your sleep
increase the flow of blood to your brain
improve memory and reaction time

Joining a class would certainly help, especially since there is also the social side to group exercise. If you spend a lot of time working alone or from home, waking up the brain by chatting to others, following exercise routines and having a change of environment will help lift the fogginess.

Join a class today to bounce away your brain fog.

Wacky Wednesday - fun fact
Sweating daily for BETTER BONES. Going hard during the week so you and your sweat glands can take it easy at weekend may not be your best idea. Don't slack off through the weekends. Exercising daily has been linked with better bone health in women, report researchers from the University of Exeter found. But don't panic - the study showed that one or two minutes of high-intensity exercise is all it takes to reap the skeletal rewards. Channelling Usain Bolt while you dash for the bus should do the trick or popping along to one of our classes.

Two and a half weeks is about how long our new year's resolutions last unless we commit to something that is really achievable. It's no good just saying you are going to go on another diet or go to the gym every day because it gets boring and we don't stick to it. Find something fun that you can commit to which enhances your life.
Got any good ideas?

Do you know one of the biggest mistakes you can make when it comes to healthy living?
Not taking action.
You want to do it.
You are thinking about doing it.
You are not sure if you are ready.
Taking no action leads to no change. Take imperfect action.
Stumble along the way.
Failure is feedback.
Don't sit on the fence when you could jump off and change your life! Book a class today www.fitnessfairy.co.uk

Mushrooms are a great seasonal food in January. They are also a wonderful source of Vitamin D, something that we're lacking in due to the low amount of sunshine we get this time of year. So a tasty way to get your recommended daily amount is by adding an 84g serving of mushrooms to your daily diet. You'll also get a good amount of fibre and a negligible amount of calories, salt or fat.
You can have them as an addition to all sorts of meals, such as in a stir fry, chopped up in soups or bolognese, as an added vegetable with chicken or in stews and with cream cheese in an omelette.
From little buttons to the big portobello ones, each type of mushroom adds to a dish in both flavour and texture. The stems of King Oyster mushrooms have an appearance texture very similar to scallops when cooked.
What's your favourite mushroom dish?

Why do we bounce in grip socks?
Bouncing in your socks or bare feet increases the muscle strength of your intrinsic foot muscles, which promotes better mobility and posture? If you lose mobility in your feet, it's going to travel up to your knees and hips eventually putting you at risk of injuries (Women's Health Magazine).

Taste the rainbow and we're not talking about Skittles.
Want to keep your brain young? Colourful produce might be your answer. A recent study suggests that eating bright fruits and veggies every day may be the key to slowing cognitive decline and keeping your brain sharper for longer.
How? It's down to flavonoids, which are naturally occurring antioxidants in plants. Here are some of the most interesting findings from the study:
• People with the best results ate at least half a serving of foods like celery, orange juice, grapefruits, pears, and peppers every day.
• More specifically, participants who ate 600 milligrams (mg) of flavonoid-rich foods each day showed a 20% lower risk of cognitive decline compared with those who ate 150 mg of these foods.
• Yellow or orange spices, fruits, and veggies offered the strongest protection, with 38% reduced risk, which equates to 3 to 4 years younger in brain age.

So, which types of produce are ideal for the ol’ noggin? The brighter the colour, the better. Think: vibrant reds, rich greens, and bright oranges, such as strawberries, apples, oranges, and peppers. Certain teas, red wine, and dark chocolate are high in flavonoids, too. Basically, any fruit or veggie with a deep, intense colour can boost your brain health.

In January many of us start new activities with the hope that it will make us fitter, healthier or more successful. So if we carry on with those activities will we love them at some time? Unfortunately not. You need to enjoy it - and not just because life is too short. If something you do feels nice and triggers a sensation of success, it can rewire the brain in a way that propels you to perform the habit more often. If getting more exercise is your goal, pick a form you enjoy and that will make it easier for you to stick at it and be successful - Boogie Bouncing rather than running on a treadmill, for example

Fun Fitness Fact
It takes at least 12 weeks of regular exercise to get into shape. While you’ll likely see some results like fat loss and muscle gain in as little as 6-8 weeks, most people won’t experience measurable changes in their fitness level until the 3 to 4 month mark. If you don’t see results right away, don’t get discouraged! Stick with it and the good changes will come.

Deep breathing helps burn fat. Exercise doesn't have to be done full-out all the time in order to be beneficial to your body. Even light exercise will burn fat, and more effectively if you are breathing correctly. Light exercise clears out lactic acid, a waste product in the body and stimulates cells to regenerate. To help you to burn fat while you are exercising you need to be exercising aerobically, rather than anaerobically. To do this, it is important to breathe deeply while you exercise. Breathe into your stomach through your nose, hold it, then exhale hard through your mouth. To burn fat you also need to be exercising at a level that is comfortable. If you push yourself too far, raising your heartbeat too high and getting yourself out of breath, you are exercising anaerobially. To burn fat, you need to be able to carry on a conversation while you exercise.

Try doing 30 minutes of aerobic activity every day. Activity does not always mean a structured class or session, it could mean going for a walk, doing your vacuuming or dusting, gentle dancing, swim or a gentle cycle. This will maximise your energy and fitness levels.

Increasing your fitness levels will help you to full participate in anaeorobic exercise too where you are working in intense bursts of exercise and should be left exhausted and gasping for breath.

Boogie Bounce is an ideal form of aerobic exercise, using the mini trampoline or rebounder, whether at home or in a class. This low-impact exercise provides many benefits for you and your body, including aerobic benefits, improved balance and co-ordination, and improved muscle tone. unlike other good aerobic workouts, rebounding places no strain on the joins of your body, so it is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels.

Don't forget to take care of yourself otherwise you can't take care of anyone else.
Sitting in your favourite chair to read a book, have a scented bath, take a walk in your favourite spot. Spending time on yourself is a good thing.
What do you do for yourself?
Creamy bubbles, beautiful candles, and quiet music is the perfect time for ourselves. A Bubble Bath reminds us of the little luxuries in life and to treat ourselves. Take some time out for yourself day and celebrate

WELL DONE to everyone that tried out the NEW ROUTINE this week. You all absolutely smashed it ###

Our trampolines are a whole gym in a 1 meter circle. We can bounce using the surface as resistance to tone our muscles. Our routines are based on the HIIT principles so we speed up the heart, then slow it down, keeping the heart healthy and burning fat. We combine the resistant surface and the frame of the trampoline and use our body weight to build strength and condition. Having the handle means that we can add dynamics to our leaps and splits giving us a fantastic workout for heart, lungs and the large muscles in our legs, bum and tum without the worry about falling off the trampoline. We can also do all the routines with lower options so if you're returning to fitness, recovering from injury or just need to take it easy you can still work out with our great music and moves. It's a versatile bit of kit and much more fun than going to the gym.

Have you joined the Veganuary campaign this month? It's a pledge to embrace plant-based diets for January. There are many reasons why people are switching to a plant-based cuisine, the most prevalent being the idea that it's about maintaining a longer and healthier life and for others it's about preserving the global food supply chain. There is a lot of researching showing that our health can be improved by reducing our consumption of red meat. Because vegan diets focus primarily on fruits, vegetables, nuts and whole grains that include fibre, antioxidants and essential nutrients, the health benefits are obvious. The absence of animal-based products also means a decrease in saturated and trans-fat, resulting in a reduced risk of health-related problems.

You may not be considering going totally vegan, but the advantages of increasing the number of plant-based meals you eat cannot be ignored. Replacing one or two meat based for plant based will not only help your health, but the environment too. Carry that, not only through January, but the rest of the year and you wil be doing yourself and the planet a huge favour.

If you have decided that this year is the year to get yourself fit, you need to act like your own PT. Get yourself organised, plan your exercise schedule and block out time for you to do it. Stick with your schedule. If you had a PT they would be there at the door making you go out and do your exercise, so you need to do that for yourself. If you've booked a class make sure you go to it. Have visual reminders around you to help you to achieve your goal. Post-it notes on the fridge, reminders on your phone, messages on the mirror. Being your own PT will help you to stick to your fitness regime and help you to achieve your goals. To start that process, get booked into your classes today www.fitnessfairy.co.uk

While you may not be able to stick to New Year's resolutions you should try to make some kind of commitment to yourself to stick to doing something daily for the next 30 days. Once you get into the habit of doing that thing, it will be easier to stick to it longer term. Perhaps you could commit to doing some kind of movement each day. Our classes can help you with that and we are back with Boogie Bounce at QE2 Rec on Wed 4th Jan and West Totton Centre on Thurs 5th Jan and online Body Blast from Saturday 7th Jan. Book in at www.fitnessfairy.co.uk and make your commitment to yourself
