Some like it hot, but does it matter in yoga?
By larraineso, 18:06

The martial arts routine comprises gymnastics, acrobatics, street stunts and trekking. My weight-training includes extensive lower body training, squats and lunges for the calves, along with an upper body workout that includes Roman rings, parallel bars and push-ups. My strengths A lot of people who weight train tend to focus more on the upper body, not realizing that the entire body needs to be strengthened for it to operate at its best. Since I concentrate a lot on my lower body, I feel that that's my biggest strength. My diet I don't just have three meals. I eat at regular intervals as and when I feel hungry. I start my day with a litre of water, followed by breakfast that comprises white oats with muesli, fruits (especially kiwi ), along with skimmed milk.

The plans also include expanding its presence in countries worldwide. GBP44 million of the investment would be used on renovating clubs and testing out new ideas. The GBP77.5 million investment follows a smaller investment of at least GBP20 million into the UK business earlier this year. "Investing at this level illustrates our confidence in the potential of our business and the international fitness industry, which is growing at over 5% a year. In addition to our recent GBP26 million investment to boost the quality of our UK clubs, we have our sights set on building on our strong position internationally," said Andy Coslett, Fitness First CEO. The previous operators of Fitness First was BC partners, a private equity firm. BC Partners bought the chain for GBP1 billion in 2005.

Fitness Bloggers Wanted

Credit: Reuters/Eric Thayer By Dorene Internicola NEW YORK | Mon Aug 5, 2013 5:02am EDT NEW YORK (Reuters) - Hot yoga devotee Karla Walsh feels exhilarated after an hour of twisting her soggy limbs into pretzel shapes, but the Iowa-based writer wonders if all that swelter really ramps up her workout. Bikram and other types of hot yoga, where temperatures can soar to 105 Fahrenheit (40.5 Celsius) or higher, are increasingly popular. Fitness experts say the hot-house workout if done properly is not harmful and may seem more challenging, but add that followers aren't working any harder than in other yoga classes. "The benefits are largely perceptual," said Dr. Cedric Bryant, the chief science officer of the American Council on Exercise (ACE).
