ROW­ING IS THE NEW SPIN­NING

The mus­cle en­gage­ment and qual­ity of move­ment when row­ing is what makes it bet­ter than spin­ning. Ad­di­tion­ally, this full body work­out is eas­ier on your joints and en­gages all your mus­cles – from your arms to the legs and core. There is a lot of buzz around row­ing stu­dios, so be on the look­out for one near you.

IN­TER­MIT­TENT FAST­ING

Also known as fat fast­ing, this is an eat­ing pat­tern that al­ter­nates be­tween fast­ing and eat­ing. The com­mon method in­volves daily 16-hour fasts. For ex­am­ple, you skip break­fast and re­strict your daily eat­ing pe­riod to 8 hours, such as from 1pm to 9pm. You then fast for 16 hours in be­tween.

CHIL­DREN’S FIT­NESS

Obe­sity in chil­dren con­tin­ues to be on the rise. Be­cause of this, par­ents are en­cour­ag­ing train­ing as a fam­ily. In ad­di­tion, kid­dies’ gyms are pop­ping up in var­i­ous parts of the coun­try such as The Kids Gym in Sable Square, Cape Town. Visit thekids­gym.co.za for more in­for­ma­tion.

CAS­SAVA FLOUR

Thanks to the con­tin­ued growth of the gluten-free move­ment, this mild-flavoured flour is fast be­com­ing an al­ter­na­tive choice for bak­ing. Made from the cas­sava root, it is high in fi­bre while also nut, grain and gluten-free. This makes it al­ler­gen-free. Cas­sava flour is an easy sub­sti­tute for wheat in bak­ing.
