Mike Melford Performance & Personal Training

My training approach is professional yet friendly and my style is always adapting to create a dynamic training relationship. Throughout our sessions you will be introduced you to new and innovative ways to exercise, which will help motivate you to stay focused on your goal(s). Where am I based? I am based in Medway, North Kent and do both home visits and gym based training. The gym where I do my training is The Park Club Chatham . There is also a good selection of recreational fields within the Medway area that I use for outdoor based sessions

Yep, it's true...😐
...
Nothing more to say...but wait! Of course there is!
...
It's with heartfelt disappointment that I can confirm that the Park Club Chatham will not open it's doors again ⛔
...
To all staff members I've had the pleasure of working with over the past 10 years, thank you for literally making my daily life as PT stress free, it's been a blast. For all staff looking for new work I sincerely wish you all the best finding secure and regular work as soon as possible
...
To the members, a lot of you (like me) would have spent a large chunk of their lives at this location and I truly wish you all the best finding a new gym that will enable you to maintain your regular exercise habits and continue to get the same benefits gym activity gives you! I definitely have some awesome memories over the years!
...
CLIENTS!...Since being notified often this sudden news, the level of understanding you've shown has been incredible! Without throwing all the cliches out there but having an inspiring base of clients has AND is an absolute privilege!
I thank you all for your unconditional support you've immediately shown 🙏🏼
I apologise I was unable to foresee the speed at which this process has occurred however I will keep you in the loop with regular updates
...
WHAT NEXT???
...
It's important that next steps are carefully planned and thought through
...
I am extremely lucky to have an amazing wife (who I met at the gym 10 years ago😊), loving family and friends who I know will support and help my decision process
...
PLEASE feel free to message me privately at any point for updates and I will continue to stay active on social media with my posting.. On separate note if you haven't already check out my recent podcast on my insta bio homepage 'Setback or Comeback' - Very relevant don't you think!?

Carbs Are Bad For You...🤔
...
Who did start that claim⁉️
...
✴Carbs/Carbohydrates are one of the 3 macronutrients that make up our daily intake of food
✴When we eat carbs it's broken down into glucose and then absorbed into our blood stream and muscle cells for all forms of activity from basic survival to sports performance
✴Different types of carbs will enter our bloodstream at different rates and provide us with energy at different speeds
...
1️⃣Starch - Breads, potatoes, pasta
2️⃣Fibre - Fruit, veg, pulses
3️⃣Sugar - Syrups, fruit juices, added sugars to beverages/sports drinks
...
✴Glycogen is essentially unused carbs stored in our liver and muscles for a time when we require energy fast
...
So are carbs bad for us??Clearly not!
...
➡️Carbohydrate Considerations For Sports Performance
...
🔴Understand your sport/performance requirements and demands which will influence the amount of carbohydrates your body will need
...
🔴Plan carbohydrate intake pre, during and post exercise for performance and recovery. Again your exercise demand and length will dictate the type and amount
...
🔴Choose foods that your body can tolerate well. Don't always have what the pros have. We are all individual
...
🔴If your exercise type/sport involves multiple bouts of high intensity movements (glycotic energy system) then carb intake is essential for performance. Both glucose and glycogen breaks down during this process to provide your body with quick energy so if there isn't any present then....📉
...
✅For any specific queries do give me a shout, happy to help 🙌🏽

The Sun is Shining The Weather is Sweet🎶🌞🌡
...
🌞Whether you’re a lover or hater of the sun it’s vital to look after ourselves and to take necessary precautions especially when exercising in this weather.
...
I’ve listed below 4 tips to consider, when exercising in the heat, to help your body respond and recover as best as it can.
...
1️⃣Try to avoid training at the hottest time of the day ✴During the peak heat hours our body has to work so much more harder to keep itself hydrated, why not aim for mornings or evenings when the weather tends to be cooler.
...
2️⃣Hydrate before, during and after exercise ✴Always ensure you have prepared your body for exercise by making sure you are adequately hydrated prior to exercise
✴During and after exercise ensure you take on regular fluids to help your body perform and recover.
...
3️⃣Be sensible with your planned session
...
✴Its really important to potentially adjust your training plan when the heat increases. Factors to consider include
✅Increased rest times
✅Reduced time training
✅Reduced training volume or load
consider indoors rather than outdoors
.
4️⃣If you feel unwell, STOP!
✴Our body gives us many clear signs that’s it’s not in a good place! Symptoms can include
❌Cramping
❌Nausea
❌Severe Lack of energy
❌Headaches and dizziness ❗Listen to your body, and start the recovery process instead of pushing it too hard!
