If you play sports, then your ability to react (most commonly referred to as your reaction time) may just determine whether you ultimately win or lose the game. Plus, being able to react quickly means that you have good eye-hand coordination, which is just one factor that can greatly improve your performance as well. Well, a pretty easy, yet effective way to achieve this enhanced level of reaction is to engage in reaction ball games. A reaction ball is a ball that isn’t completely round, but rather looks like a bunch of balls melted together. This means that bouncing it...

By adding more weight to your upper body during your training sessions, you’re also increasing the amount of resistance your muscles must work against in order to move around. This makes them grow bigger and stronger, ultimately improving your...

This is a quick demo of one of our many workouts on Swansea Bay Water Front, with Fitness Health equipment. Using the sandbags to complete the burpee exercise adds more resistance into the moment. This compound exercise is an ideal choice for starting the circuit session. The idea comes from rugby training, getting up, just after a tackle has been made, then moving through the motions regaining speed and stamina. The slalom poles act as players, movements in and out of the poles increase the speed and strength laterally, helping you strengthen your ankle and improve your foot position making your  balance better...

    If you’ve spent any time in the gym, you’ve likely heard about interval training and all of its benefits. For instance, it can help you burn more fat, build more muscle, boost your metabolism, and strengthen your heart. What makes this type of training so effective? The answer to this question lies in understanding how short interval training actually works. For starters, by engaging in short bursts of intense exercise (usually lasting around 30 seconds each) followed by lower intensity spurts (60-120 seconds), your body cannot adapt to your workout. This means that it is constantly working harder...
