Bell peppers are very high in vitamin C, with a single one providing up to 169% of the RDI. Other vitamins and minerals in bell peppers include vitamin K1, vitamin E, vitamin A, folate, and potassium.

This one is good…and so simple to make. On the plate in 15 minutes. High in protein and also high in taste so it’s a win win.

The carrot is a root vegetable often claimed to be the perfect health food. It is crunchy, tasty, and highly nutritious. Carrots are a particularly good source of beta carotene, fibre, vitamin K1, potassium, and antioxidants.

Here is the second article I gave done on Resistance Band Training. The first one was instructional whereas this one simply shows you the exercises.

Here is a short intro video from me explaining why I started

Active-Rest and my reason for being a Personal Trainer.


Active-rest went beyond my expectations and I feel happier and healthier and  stronger definitely. I think Active-Rest has it all covered...

My journey with Active-Rest has been fantastic. For me, the whole approach has been an eye opener. Not only are the sessions innovative and fun but there is real support form Richard to also focus on whole health, mind and body. I wanted to achieve strength to support other activities like horse riding and yoga. Active-rest went beyond my expectations and I feel happier and healthier and stronger definitely. I think Active-Rest has it all covered. The journey to a healthier way of life is not easy and I have struggled, especially during these uncertain times, thankfully I started with Active-Rest on their intensive course last January and, although very hard, the transformation has been amazing both physically and mentally. I can not thank Richard enough for his dedication, his workout innovations, and patience. He has given me the physical and mental strength to achieve anything. Thank you

I couldn’t believe how many calories I was burning...

When we went into lockdown the gyms shut so I was unable to do any training at the gym and was finding it hard to motivate myself to do any kind of fitness.

I then discovered Richard East, a Personal Trainer, at Active-Rest who was doing online live sessions every day for an hour doing just body weight exercises.

I couldn’t believe how many calories I was burning and I continued doing the online live sessions and some on demand sessions if I was unable to make the live ones. Each session was different, really well thought out and made you work hard. The more sessions I did the more I enjoyed doing them, could see and feel the benefits and wanted to keep doing them.

At the end of 2019 I weighed 78kg and when I weighed myself in May 2020 I was 76.3 kg. By June 2020 I weighed 74.6kg which was the lightest I had been since my twenties and I could see a transformation in my body.

The most important aspect for me is the fact that Richard is passionate about what he does, he trains with us, never just giving a count...

I have been joining Richard’s classes since the first lockdown. My initial aim was to get fitter as I sit in front of screens all day. As it happens I have not just reduced my resting heart rate and feel fitter, I have gone down a couple of belt holes. This for me is a bonus. The sessions are perfect for me, they never get any easier and there is so much variety they don’t get boring. The fact that you don’t need any equipment, apart from a chair occasionally, is perfect for me. Finally the most important aspect for me is the fact that Richard is passionate about what he does, he trains with us, never just giving a count.
