Fitness watches have become a huge phenomenon nowadays.
They can track your daily steps, estimate the number of calories you have burned each day and even analyse your sleep.
Having these watches can be great – especially if it encourages people to move more.
However, how accurate are they for estimating the number of calories you have burned during a session?
And more importantly, should the number of calories you have burned dictate the quality of your session?
Most GAA athletes spend anywhere from three to four months training hard in the gym and pushing new PR’s. You get stronger, feel fitter and have gotten bigger.
Then, the season comes around and most people do one of two things:
Neither approach is optimal – the first approach being most common.
When you have to balance training and matches along with recovery, the weight room is often left out of the equation. This can have a negative effect on an athlete’s overall performance.
In this blog post I’m going to explain why you need in-season strength training and a common mistake people make in-season training.
Whenever most people want to lose weight, the first thing they look to do is incorporate some form of cardio.

Today, I’d like to discuss three things you can do to help lose weight without ever having to put on your running shoes – they are: structured nutrition, strength training and prioritising sleep.
This week just gone by; I did my second ever photoshoot.
Unlike last year where I booked a shoot 5 days prior to the event, I had a date set in mind since January 1st when I mapped out exactly how I wanted my training to look for the year ahead.
Why did I pick July?
Well firstly, who doesn’t want to look their best in summer time? And secondly, my sister’s wedding (after being postponed last year) was set for July 10th.
This gave me a clear target for the year ahead – to prepare for a photoshoot before our first family wedding because I didn’t want to be dieting during the wedding itself.
Having something to train for kept me motivated during the tough times – which is something I encourage everyone to do. It gives you focus and clarity with an end date in mind.
