Following on from our blog, 'What supplements do you recommend as personal trainers?'. We’re going to look in a little greater depth at Magnesium and how it may improve your fitness, energy levels and sleep.
TWPT is a Personal Training gym with a difference! Rather than focussing solely on exercise, we take a holistic approach, looking at every element of our clients’ lifestyles to help them set goals to be healthier, fitter and ultimately - happier!
One of the main areas we focus on aside from workouts is nutrition. We firmly believe that fully understanding nutrition is paramount to losing weight and better health. All our PTs are fully trained in nutrition and continually educate themselves to ensure that we have the most up-to-date solid scientific research to add to the foundations of nutrition, as well as the anecdotal evidence of working with hundreds of clients
Lose weight and tone up - a common goal that we hear but how should this look for you?
A brief summary is to understand that not all your problems will get solved through one or two exercise sessions a week. There is going to need to be work done behind the scenes and away from the gym in order to achieve sustainable fat loss. This is where an autonomous plan between you and your trainer really pays off.
We’d like to stress that there are very few blanket statements that cater for the masses, however, it is important to understand that in order to lose weight/reduce body fat percentage, you have to be in a calorie deficit. This means that you have more energy going out than coming in. This calorie deficit should be at the forefront of your plan and remain a key pillar all the time you are wanting to lose body fat.
TWPT is a dedicated personal training gym in Tunbridge Wells where you’ll be paired with a personal trainer who will work with you on a one-to-one basis to tailor a workout programme that best helps you achieve your goals and see results.
At TWPT we understand that as with any relationship, it’s important you find the right match! And making sure our clients feel 100% comfortable, motivated, and actively looking forward to their sessions is our priority!
The process of matching you with the right trainer starts when you first get in touch with TWPT. You’ll be invited into the gym for a tour and to chat with one of our senior trainers to get to know you better and assess your needs.

For some, being asked to work from home may have caused a decrease in daily activity levels which in time, could be negatively impacting your weight management.
The steps that form part of your daily commute can account for a high percentage of your activity and therefore TDEE (total daily energy expenditure). This is important to note as your daily step count has the potential to burn more calories than your exercise sessions.
So, if you’re still exercising but sat at your home desk all day, you may not be burning as many calories as you thought/hoped for.
As a result, we’ve decided to come up with some creative solutions to help you increase your daily step count.
We understand it’s tempting to go straight to your desk space and not move until lunch or dinner but we want to show you how you can still get in a decent amount of activity even when you’re faced with a busy work schedule.

When Friday comes around, it would be easy to relax your standards simply because ’its the weekend’, however, this 48 hour window equates to 29% of your overall week and what you do still matters.
If nutrition is unaccounted for and you frequently use this time to over indulge, it could be the difference between seeing the results you work hard for during the week and not.
As personal trainers we see clients work so hard for 5 days. Only for 1 or 2 days at the weekend undoing all the hard work.
Often the same nutritional habits you have set up in the week should carry over to the weekend.
Diets that are too restrictive may have an increased failure rate, a degree of flexibility is great, but too much and you risk losing sight of your goals.
