Group fitness has remained at the forefront of exercise trends since its inception and while the 2015-2017 season was dominated by Crossfit there is a myriad of other exercise types that adopt the ‘tribe’ mentality, take a look:
My Heart thanks exercise …literally
When I was working in Corporate and Business management roles, there seemed to be always something getting in the way of my desire to be fit, healthy and full of energy. The biggest hurdles were time and travel (no not time-travel, although it would have helped). My big reality check happened whilst lying in my hospital bed after heart surgery.  (Yep sometimes it kicks you in the ass).  Part of me was thinking why me, I’m active, eat reasonably well etc.
What’s New in 2018 for…
It’s the start of another year and with many people making resolutions to get healthier there are more and more new and exciting ways to make this happen. Will new fitness trends help us to keep on track?

It is the time of year for socialising, catching up with friends and family, end of year events, and holiday time.  If you have worked hard all year to keep good health, and want to minimise the effects of the festive season, here are some tips to help you.
Stay fit & toned while away from MINT

No gym? No worries
Everybody travels.Whether it’s for business or pleasure at some point in our lives we all depart from the comfort of our personal routine to visit another location.
Can exercise help us sleep better?
As much research has shown, sleep is important for any number of reasons. For exercise, sleep is particularly important as it restores brain function and alertness in preparation for training sessions and it also helps in muscle recovery.
How to be in Mint Condition
How does activity differentiate to exercise and what are the differences? These are some of the questions that many seem to be getting confused about.
Make the gym part of who you are
Hit the switch for at least 21 days. When exercise becomes routine, it ceases being a choice and becomes something you just do (think work, eating, and sleeping)
The need for speed
There is no better exercise.Sprint training is by far the most effective way to transform your body in the least amount of time.
Technology in the fitness industry
Gadgets, I love them; I’m a guy and anything that has technology, spins my wheels.
