Visceral Fat: The Impact on your health and how to reduce the risks

Visceral fat is a type of body fat that’s stored within the abdominal cavity. It’s located near several vital organs, including the liver, stomach, and intestines. It can also build up in the arteries. It’s often referred to as active fat because it can activate the many health problems associated with it from diabetes, heart disease, insulin resistance and neurological disorders.


Food addiction is a real addiction, unlike drugs and alcohol abuse it is not seen as near as a problem of alcohol or drugs but left untreated can result in mental, emotional, and physical health issues which can affect the quality of your life, your health and your mobility.

You Must Have This to Lead a Great Life

Self-esteem is characterised by how you feel about yourself in general. When we have low self- esteem it can limit us from living a great life. With low self-esteem we accept low standards in our relationships, our jobs and our life in general. We may suffer from social anxiety and worry what others think of us.

Do you find “The Plank” too easy? Try these two tougher versions

Most of us are familiar with the core exercise known as The Plank. For those who aren’t, it involves holding a position that is very similar to a push-up except that your elbows are on the floor.

For the exercise novice it can be a relatively challenging position to maintain (once it is performed correctly, but more on that later), however many trainees will find that they are able to last for a couple of minutes or even longer.

Why exercise is keeping us sane

I tend to think of my friends as being in one of two categories: “Training” or “Other”.

My social circle consists of people I know through work or sport (which for me, is essentially the same thing). Then there are the friends who I have met in other ways; friends from school perhaps, or old housemates who I have stayed in touch with, and so on.
