Do you struggle with confidence at the gym? On this week’s #fitandfearless
have been answering your questions on this issue on Afternoon Edition with @therealnihal.
Tally has this great advice for feeling confident when working out: "When you're going to the gym, it's so marketed towards weight loss and fat loss but... what we want to push as well is that it's not just about what you can lose but what you can gain. The sense of achievement from improving your fitness levels or completing your first 5k or lifting a weight for the first time - there's so much to be taken from that.“ Tally says what's kept her personal training clients motivated is working on numbers - increasing reps - rather than looks. "It's so exciting when you get a new personal best every week,” she said. 💪

“Forever in our hearts and thoughts”🍁
These messages have been left on a tree trail around Manchester, marking the first anniversary of the Manchester Arena attack. 22 people were killed by a suicide bomber at the Ariana Grande concert, and more than 800 people were left with physical and psychological injuries. The branches of these “Trees of Hope” are filled with messages from the public, one year on. Every message will be kept in an archive - along with last year’s tributes. #manchester #manchesterattack #treesofhope #stannessquare
