Foam rolling is so much more than just a new fitness trend—it’s one of the best ways to improve joint function, enhance mobility, and decrease post-workout muscle soreness.

Losing weight is probably the biggest problem many of us face on a daily basis. It is possibly the favourite New Year’s Resolution along with giving up smoking. It is one of the hardest things to achieve and stay positive at the same time. Losing weight naturally is better for you than any fad or crash dieting programs.

So it makes total sense that cardio—jogging, cycling, skipping rope, and all the other low-intensity workouts—are going to help you burn fat. Well, maybe not…
You may have heard about High Intensity Interval Training (H.I.I.T.) on the news or in social media. There are commercials also promoting devices that can help you achieve this kind of one minute weight loss routine. The premise of this type of work out is that you don't need to go hard for a full thirty minutes to see results.
