How to holiday without getting fat

Getting in shape and dropping body fat for an impending holiday is a common request that I get from my clients. It is completely understandable as people often are escaping to a warmer climate and will be lounging by the pool in their bikinis or board shorts and want to look their best. My advice is always centred on long-term health and that being in shape should not be a once or twice a year goal. Continue reading “How to holiday without getting fat”
