Get the Positive from the Negative

Friday, 8 February 2019 14:42:35 Europe/London

When you perform a repetition of a weight lifting exercise, such as a bicep curl, your movements can be broken down into two phases: the positive (concentric) phase in which you raise the weight and the negative (eccentric) phase where you lower it.

Okay, it’s the New Year and you’ve decided to get fit and healthy. That’s great!

Wednesday, 12 December 2018 16:25:22 Europe/London

Most of us are aware that training with weights can bring a range of health benefits, but not everyone understands how to make it work.

What Motivates You?

Friday, 17 August 2018 15:00:38 Europe/London

What motivates you? What drives you to put on your sport gear and workout at those times when you don’t feel like it? By that, I don’t mean when your body is screaming that you’re too tired, but rather those times when you feel OK physically, but less than enthusiastic mentally.

Friday, 29 June 2018 16:23:38 Europe/London

Hiring an exercise bike is a good option

Friday, 18 May 2018 10:24:00 Europe/London

Exercise bikes are great for fitness.  We at Fit Hire are happy to make that claim, knowing that such bikes are an excellent option for those of you who want to tone up and improve your cardiovascular performance.

Furthermore, the relatively light weight and small size of these machines makes them very suitable for home use.  It's fair to say that getting fit at home has never been easier, but perhaps the main consideration for someone thinking about an exercise bike is whether to hire or buy?

Hiring equipment is a good option for those embarking on a new fitness regime. Rent a bike, for example, and you...
