The Fitness4London.com website and its social network Fitness Buddy is the creation of Dominic Londesborough, a personal trainer in London who trains his fitness clients in the privacy of their own homes, or in the park if they prefer a PT session outdoors. If you're looking for the cheapest personal trainer in London, you're looking in the wrong place. I'm reassuringly expensive because I get results.

In this year's Budget, Chancellor George Osborne introduced a sugar tax on sugary drinks to encourage healthier living. This will help Britain's kids avoid tooth decay, diabetes and obesity. We could also do with higher taxes on alcohol and junk food. Our economy would be far more productive if the population was healthier.
There's a lot in the news about the NHS crisis. This is merely a symptom of the real problem: 8 million smokers in the UK, a population that drinks too much alcohol, eats too much junk food and too little nutritious food, and takes too little exercise. If Britain ate healthily, made exercise part of daily lifestyle, cut stress levels, slept better, and quit smoking, there would be no NHS crisis. These are the elephants in the room that no politician dares talk about in public.
Public Health England is now advising everyone to take vitamin D supplements in the winter, as many people don't get enough vitamin D from food sources (red meat, eggs, salmon, sardines, cow's milk). The best source of vitamin D is sunlight, which activates vitamin D creation in the skin. This vital vitamin helps keep bones strong and healthy.

A complete ban on smoking in outdoor public spaces where people gather (parks and squares) is long overdue, and may be coming soon to London. Royal Society for Public Health is calling for a ban in public spaces. It will be fantastic to sit on the steps around Trafalgar Square, Duke of York Square, the Royal Parks and outside pubs without being poisoned by cigarette smoke. There will be a lot less litter from smokers' cigarette stubs too.
As a Londoner you'll know it's a challenge to stay fit and healthy in this crazy city. Junk food takeaways dominate every high street, particularly in poor areas. At the other end of the scale, top restaurants tempt you with rich food. Air pollution levels are sky-high, whatever Boris Johnson says. Green spaces are too few in some areas of London, particularly Islington and the financial district of EC1 and EC2. Ludicrously, some London borough councils are now prosecuting personal trainers for training their clients in the Royal Parks in London without a having paid a large licence fee, an absolutely insane policy which will only deter people from using the parks to get fit.
