“ BREAK THE KITESURFING There’s lots of benefits kitesurfing can bring to your health, not to mention the amount of enjoyment to. Although you are strapped into a harness you will develop a very strong core strength as the centre has to distribute the power and balance from your upper body through to the legs that are pushing against the water. This will inevitably strengthen your legs and general aerobic fitness. As well as experiencing the thrilling exhilaration whilst burning calories at a high rate. There are several reputable kitesurfing instructors/schools in this area as we are by the coast. Most of which will supply everything you need right down to the wet suit in some cases. But don’t be under the illusion that your be speeding along the coast waving to your friends & relatives on your first lesson. After a few lessons you will be on the water & enjoying the thrills of this sport. Once you are at a competent level you will be able to purchase your own equipment. You can pick up second hand kits at a sensible prices to start with & then its FREE, you go when ever you want as often as you want (weather permitting).




Sadly to many people associate this as a childrens activity when it can be a great way for all age groups to get some good exercise whether it be at your local leisure centre or at home. Trampolining stimulates your metabolism, improves sense of balance, firms and tones the muscles not to mention being fantastic for your cardiovascular (heart). Research has shown that a ten minute session can be more beneficial than a half hour jog. LADIES best of all studies have shown that trampolining is one of the most beneficial methods to genuinely reduce CELLULITE. ROCK CLIMBING Climbing is an exciting recreational sport that anyone can take part in from all age groups that can be enjoyed indoors at one of your local centres or outdoors. Climbing is considered one of the best total body workouts available. It’s a unique sport in that boys and girls are equally capable. It strengthens core muscles better than exercise routines designed to focus on particular regions. Research has shown it also helps stabilize the core of our bodies, which leads to an overall stronger, less injury prone body. Other benefits include the strengthening of your hands, forearms, biceps, shoulders, neck, upper back, lower back, abs, thighs and calves. The only downside could be if your afraid of heights, which could be something else you could conquer !

ith all inclusive holidays becoming increasingly popular & with far more availability, fewer people are seeing the attraction of a self catering holiday. Although it would certainly seem there are still a lot of benefits for those that do. Time Table Fancy a lay in? No problem. Or maybe stay down the beach till late & eat late evening. Self-catering accommodation allows you the flexibility to come and go as you please and to set your own holiday timetable. To be on holiday & have to rush down to the buffet for set meal times, doesn’t somehow seem so relaxing. Variety & Brands Personally myself l am a bit of a brand snob as this normally means better quality & to find that the all inclusive holiday you have paid for only included a local beer that tastes like paint stripper or a wine that tastes like vinegar, would be a major blow. The beauty with self catering, even if your a creature of habit you can try a few bars restaurants in the first day/evening until you find one you like. 6

Accommodation If you like the idea of travelling in a larger group, there are plenty of accommodation options on a self-catering basis that will allow you to all stay together and reduce your costs on virtually everything from accommodation to food, drink and other holiday essentials. If you are in a larger group, you can all put money into a kitty and take it in turns to cook and do the food shopping & any other chores. There are some fantastic villa and cottage options available. Location With both holiday types there are countless locations to suit all but you will often find yourself in more of a complex style environment when going all exclusive & often far more off the beaten track.

Food All inclusive certainly has its advantages if you have young children who are going to be wanting lots of fizzy drinks & ice creams. After all it is there holiday & this can be costly to buy while your there. However lets face it unless your going on a real high end all inclusive package, buffet style food is what your likely to get. Which really isn’t that appealing. With self catering you can experience endless local cuisines at a wide range of local restaurants/cafes. It can also be great to shop in the local supermarket & try there brands, as well as being able to find a few familiar ones if you choose to.

Budget Obviously the all inclusive holidays do have a great appeal here, hence why they are becoming so popular. As providing you are happy with what your all inclusive package provides you shouldn’t need to spend anything once there. Self catering you do need to consider current exchange rates & you need to be honest with yourself how often you are likely to want to eat out. Some destinations can be really cheap, where as others can be even more expensive than the UK.

There are no clear winners here as they both have there advantages & disadvantages. If your idea of the perfect holiday is to arrive at your destination, stay next to the pool all day & just switch off without worrying about your budget every time you order a drink or your children ask for another ice cream, then the all inclusive is a clear winner. For those who still want to relax but maybe explore & enjoy more of the local cuisine/ culture & surroundings then the self catering option is a clear winner.

Many of you would have made New Year resolutions especially about getting fit, losing weight and being healthier in general. Vowing to improve your lifestyle is admirable, but lofty goals such as these are often easier said than done, as most of us are left with absolutely no idea on where to begin or in fact how we’ll manage to do it. By February our old habits are back, we’re wallowing in self-pity and have presumed failure and once again just telling ourselves that it’s just not our year. You can rest assured that your not alone, according to several resolution studies, no more than 22% of them are actually carried out successfully. Yes that is a whopping 78% of people that fail. This is where the advantages of hiring a Personal Trainer come in to their own, MP Personal Training have a team of highly trained individuals who help you reach your goals. They have the experience and the expertise to help you keep your efforts manageable, on track and as enjoyable as possible, without breaking the bank. Some of you reading this may already be regular visitors to your local gym, if you’re one of these people then answer the following questions: When did you last change your routine? Is your workout actually right for you? In a single session we would be able to help you set some new achievable goals, write you a new training plan or simply check & maybe help you with your technique. No need to worry if one of your barriers is that you’re worried about stepping into a gym or health club, as we provide services where we can meet our clients outside for sessions in a suitable location or even in the comfort of your own home. So don’t put off your fitness & health goals until next year there’s still plenty of time & remember when you enjoy what you’re doing, you’ll do it more often allowing you to reach your goals quicker.

CHILLI HOTPOT WITH POTATO A real family winter warmer.

Method 1. Toss the beef in flour, then brown half in a pan, using 1 tbsp oil. Once browned, spoon into a bowl. Add 100ml wine to the pan and scrape up any bits. Reduce a little, then pour into the bowl with the cooked beef. Wipe the pan and repeat with the remaining beef and another 100ml wine. Meanwhile, whizz the onions, carrots and garlic in a food processor until finely chopped. 2. Add 2 tbsp oil to the pan and tip in the chopped veg, peppers, fresh chilli, thyme sprigs and bay. Fry for 10 mins. Tip in the spices, cook for 1 min, then add the rest of the wine and reduce by half. Add the tomatoes, sugar, beef, winey juices and stock, season, then simmer for 1½-2 hrs until the meat is meltingly tender. Stir in the beans and allow to cool. 3. Peel and slice the potatoes about 5mm thick, then boil for 5 mins. Drain, then tip back into pan. Add the butter and thyme leaves, season, then toss to coat. Tip the chilli mix into a 35 x 25cm dish, then layer the potatoes on top. Dot with butter. Cover with cling film and cool completely if freezing. Will freeze for 1 month – defrost before cooking. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and bake for 50 mins-1 hr, until the sauce is bubbling and potatoes golden. Serve with soured cream and green veg.
