Mental Health Awareness – Depression

All of us have changes in mood. We may feel happy one day and sad the next; this is quite normal and does not mean that we depression or any other mood disorder for that matter. This is only the case when the mood is disturbed for an extended period of time.

Mood disorders are also known as affective disorders and include conditions where mood is elevated, such as mania, or where mood is lowered, such as major depressive disorder (otherwise known as clinical depression). Another mood disorder is bipolar disorder; this was previously known as manic depression, in which moods can fluctuate between low levels & mania.

Level 2 Fitness Instruction and Level 3 Personal Training

I studied my Level 2 fitness instructor and Level 3 personal training course at Velocity. The courses were recommended to me from a previous student, I couldn’t have picked a better place to study! The course is taught very well, a good balance of classroom learning and practical work in the gym, It was really enjoyable learning all the course content. I was really impressed with how the course prepares you with business skills and takes you through the various routes that you can take to help you start up after qualifying. My tutor, Mat was amazing, very helpful throughout and was happy to advise me on any questions I had. Velocity are also more than happy to help you with the application stage of applying for your personal training vacancies. I would highly recommend Velocity PT Academy! Read More

5 Popular Training Systems

There are many different training approaches to both resistance training & CV based training. Here we are going to look at 5 of the most popular training methods that are currently being used within the fitness industry.

HIIT Training

We talked about HIIT training in a recent blog so you can check out the benefits of HIIT there. The technique doesn’t require fitness influencer-level skills, either: you can do HIIT with any workout, as long as you’re mixing up short, intense bursts of activity with less hardcore moves or complete rest in between. Its both time effective & you really feel like you’ve gotten a good workout. You don’t need any equipment & can be done anywhere which is why over the past few years it is probably one of the most popular training methods out there! Read More
