Refuels and why we have them, or why we should.

Have worked it out recently, that when the centre is busy I can be involved in 6 Cobra/HIIT/Skipit classes a week, lead and or support our Running Club twice a week, plus things like cycling and running on days off and never once have I woken up in pain or gone, ‘not another class.’ A couple of reasons- firstly, I love my job and secondly and much more importantly I refuel after every activity I take part in.

And this refuel is so, so important. Science has proven there is a metabolic window when your body needs to be refueled after any activity, and it’s within 30 minutes of completing, leave it any longer and you will get no benefit from what you’ve done, in fact the reverse will happen and your body will just store it’s next refuel as fat.

Exercise damages your muscles, refuels help to repair them so you can be bigger and stronger at your next class. This is why from Day 1 of opening SSWC we provide a refuel for every person attending every class.

So today’s message is refuel, refuel after every class, if you don’t you are doing yourself and your body a massive disservice.

We know our smoothies work, what is your favourite refuel? Post below to be in with a chance of winning a box of protein bars for the best post.
