England predictions

England play Lithuania tonight, hopefully an easy victory for England and a couple of debut goals for Harry Kane. 

Hopefully England will having something to show this time, I always back the squad although it's getting a bit tougher now with the poor showing in the last few games and  at the World Cup. 

But I decided to put my money where my mouth is and even put a bet on thanks to the 888 promo code I found online. 

Looks like the bookies are backing England too as I'm not set to make the biggest return. 

With that said winning the bet will give me a free night out so I can’t complain too much, let’s hope I’ve not jinxed my chances.

What are your predicting for tonight’s result?

How to become a personal trainer

There are many routes in becoming a personal trainer, regardless of which route you take though one thing you need to do is get certified. 

Most health clubs will require you to be certified before taking you on, however those who have advanced qualifications have an even greater chance of being employed as well as the financial benefits you can get from having an advanced certification.

If you’ve decided that becoming a Personal Trainer is for you, here are some tips to help get you started.

Do you have the right attitude?  
By becoming a personal trainer not only will you need to be self disciplined and lead by example by living a healthy life, but look at yourself and think are you a leader creative, likable, professional disciplined and passionate about fitness, these are just some traits you should have when becoming a personal trainer.

Get the right training
You’ll need to find a great training course to get you ready to start taking on clients.
There are plenty of providers, however I would recommend they offer a fantastic course and can get you started and trained in just 5 weeks! 

Decide where you’d like to work
Starting out on your own or working within a health club, there are plenty of options for where to start.
Most would recommend starting in a club at first to learn how you’d like to work or if you aren’t business minded. 
However should you wish to go it alone, most clubs have a non-competition clause you would need to agree to so you do not leave and take all of your loyal clients with you.

Have Fun
Lastly make sure you have fun, becoming a personal trainer should be something you enjoy. Loving your job should rub off to your clients and help motivate them.
Finally when you see the results you’ve helped them achieve you’ll be smiling for days, one of the most rewarding jobs you can have.

How team wear really boosted our moral

Studies show that when morale is high then you’re more likely to put more effort into tasks. 
So when my local badminton teams morale was dropping we decided to combat it by getting new personalised team hoodies made containing our team logo and name.
Having new team wear from My Personalised Hoodies made us, especially our newest member feel more apart of the team. As well as a morale boost it also made us feel like a bigger club, especially when going to matches and our oppositions team wear is looking a little tired compared.

Not only that but our performances improved too, now I can’t put this down to the new team wear but I like to think it may have contributed. 
So if your team need a bit of a morale boost I’d certainly recommend looking into new team wear.

Should The NFL have a London team

Does The NFL need to get a London team?

Last weekend I managed to experience my first NFL game at Wembley, seeing the Detroit Lions manage to just beat Atlanta Falcons 22-21.

Britain’s following of the NFL seems to be ever growing, with each game seeing attendances of over 80,000+ people, the NFL seems to bring a real buzz to the UK and whilst organisers have made their intentions known of a London based team, is this a good idea or not?

The first thing I noticed going to my first game was the atmosphere. In and around Wembley was buzzing, awash of people wearing NFL jerseys.
A study released today claims that the NFL coming to the UK would be worth over £100 million. But could British fans cope with the growing pains a new team would inevitably bring with it?

A new team is likely to have teething problems, would fans be willing to potentially watch a London team lose game after game. 

Something more important I fear though is could a London NFL team lose the spark we’re currently seeing with these yearly visits. The games feel more like celebrations of the sport, it doesn’t matter who you support on the day, it’s the togetherness these events bring and having a dedicated team is certainly going to spoil that atmosphere somewhat.
The NFL will more than likely get their own way in getting a team over here, I just sure hope they don’t ruin what’s a great experience we’ve seen at the previous 2 games recently.
