One Of The Best (If Not THE Best) Gyms In London

Posted by admin on Oct 27, 2020 in Entertainment, News

hackney-gym-londonMaybe I am not really the best “fitness expert” to ask as I can only talk from my own, personal experience.

On the other hand, I believe that I have at least some experience when it comes to gyms in London since a must have joined and tried at least a dozen or so in the last some years.

First off, let me just give a big thumbs down to all the big name fitness centres in the city.

If you’re like me, maybe you like smaller independently owned gyms much better: People are A LOT friendlier, stuff is super-helpful and it’s just overall a much more fun experience if you avoid the “big names” out there.

The guys at Hackney’s London Fields Fitness really want to make you fitter AND the world a better place. They recycle, use LED bulbs, biodegradable rubbish bags, recycled TP and environmentally friendly cleaning products and hand soaps etc. The electricity used at the studio comes from 100% renewable energy sources like wind turbines and solar via Good Energy.

So, if you can’t tell, this is definitely a very “different” gym.

One other thing where London Fields is different is that they don’t do memberships, contracts and there are no joining fees. What they offer is a simple and straight-forward drop-in and PAYG studio for fitness classes, indoor cycling and personal training. But there, they offer A TON!!

They have all kinds of classes from dancing to yoga to martial arts, to pilates and 30 minute workouts and that’s just from what I can recall. And the best, you can simply hire a personal trainer as you need one.

Differently spoken: With a “normal” gym, you get a membership and a pass that allows you to use their equipment. Nothing else. Help needed? Much luck with that!

In their studio at London Fields, you can get in shape with real people in a class where there is a trainer, or you can even get your own trainer if you want. No guess what will be much (MUCH!) better if you want to get fit and in shape!? Yes that’s right. And this is why I think that this Hackney Gym is really one of the best gyms in London!

How CBT Therapy Can Help Overcome Mental Disorders

Posted by admin on Mar 25, 2019 in News, Tips

CBT-1Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT therapy for short is a relatively new type of psychotherapy.

What sets it apart is that CBT therapy is not too much interested in uncovering the roots of mental disorders such as depression, shyness, panic disorder or anxiety such as is the case in traditional psychotherapy but uses a direct and goal oriented approach that focuses on problem-solving.

In other words, cognitive behavioural therapy is all about helping the patient overcome their problems.

For people that happen to reside in the United Kingdom,  want to get help with their problems, one way to go about getting into CBT therapy is via the National Health Service. In such cases, the NHS will usually assign a particular therapist to the patient. This however can have the role disadvantages.

First, the patients cannot choose between a therapist but this rather dependent on which one he is being assigned by the NHS. Secondly, the patient will in all likelihood also not have any liberty in regards to when to attend the therapy sessions since he or she will likely be required to stick to set hours. This can be a problem is someone wants to fit in their therapy sessions within their daily routine.

Due to the limitations from getting a CBT therapist through the public health system in the UK, it can be a much better option to consult with a private CBT therapist. A private CBT therapist can much better accumulate to the schedule of the patient. What’s more, the patients can also select among many CBT therapist can then choose the one they personally prefer.

Lastly, there are often no guarantees in regards to the qualifications of a public CBT therapist. Private CBT therapists are more likely certified, that the patient knows they can get the qualified help they are seeking.

If you want to see CBT therapists in London, there are several options. You can find one by going through the yellow books or doing some research on the Internet. Don’t hesitate to ask questions before you choose your CBT therapist.

China Wants To Get Into Horse Racing And Guess Who Is Gonna Help

The Launch Of The China Jockey Club

The Launch Of The China Jockey Club Last Monday

The Chinese hired Peter Phillips, the Queen’s eldest grandchild to launch a horse racing industry that is supposed to rival the UK’s. Just this past week, Mr Phillips flew to Beijing for the official unveiling of the new China Jockey Club. The China Jockey Club will be the center point for China’s new and upcoming racing industry.

Many may perhaps laugh at the idea that China’s horse racing industry would be successful but those didn’t consider that it has the backing of the Chinese government.

The importance of the horse racing venture to the Chinese authorities was highlighted last Monday at a formal ceremony in the Chinese capital.

Industry insiders predict that the potential profits from the China Jockey Club could be enormous. Currently, horse racing in China is limited to a handful of meetings a year. Most of the tracks in China’s are still decrepit with only a few spectators for each race. Reason for that is the current ban of gambling by the Chinese government.

With the new China Jockey Club now backed by the  Chinese government, horse racing in China may well take off and draw millions of visitors and millions in profit. You can learn more about horse racing betting at the UK’s top website for horse racing tips.
