InBody Body Composition Analysis

Last week Perform added the InBody body composition analyser (or IB as we affectionately call it) to the team, so we thought we’d explain a little bit about our new space-age looking piece of kit and how it will change member assessments in future.


Jackie W's Fitness Story

“I started training at Perform on my 57th birthday, after about two years of dipping in and out of a number of exercise classes. I’d started doing those classes after I was diagnosed with osteoporosis at 55.

It was a real shock – we all still think we are 20 in our heads don’t we? It was then that my thought process changed from wanting to drop a dress size, to “this is serious now Jackie, the clock is ticking.

eat your vitamins

At Perform we’re all about making sustainable, lasting lifestyle changes that facilitate a healthier, happier and more enjoyable life. Most of the time those changes require some time and effort, but we do sometimes find shortcuts or hacks that make those changes more manageable.

That said, there are no shortcuts to some things and getting your nutrients is one of them, which is why a story about the latest celebrity fad for vitamin jabs and IV drips really got our backs up this week.

Today is National Love Your Pet Day today we know that – like us – many of our Perform Fitness Family members are huge animal lovers (admit it, you asked Peter to bring his new puppy in more than once, didn’t you?).

We’re using this wonderful celebration of our scaly, furry and feathered friends to share a few gifs that prove your pet could be your best gym buddy ever…

nutrition hack

Struggling to eat well while trying to keep up with work, family and life commitments?

Here at Perform, we do our best to make sticking to a nutrition plan straightforward and manageable, but we sometimes stumble across nifty hacks that can make it a whole lot more simple.

That’s what we have here and we think you’re going to like it!

David T Fitness Story

“It was actually starting to train for the Edinburgh Marathon that made me realise I really needed to get fit. At first I struggled to run a mile without stopping and being out of breath.

My general fitness had gone downhill after having my daughter in November 2016. Until then I’d used a local gym, just doing the usual resistance machines and dumbbell curls, but I had no idea what I was doing and I did the same thing every night. Even that stopped once the baby arrived though.



We need to talk about sugar and not just because this Friday marks the start of Sugar Free February.

Although clearly a marketing campaign (and not quite as catchy in title as Dry January, Veganuary, Stoptober and all the rest) there’s a lot of sense behind the gimmicky name.


“My main aim when I started training was to lose weight, tone up, get fit and become more mobile. I’d followed Peter from a previous gym. He had trained me but due to being a electrician running my own business and my father falling ill something had to give and it was the gym.


Meal prep for normal people

Meal prep like a normal person

Hands up if you’re fed up of seeing meal prep posts on social media urging you to “prep like a boss” alongside neat rows of tupperware containing the same, presumably nutritious yet unappetising-looking slop. Or those insta-famous meal preppers that tell you it’s EASY to prep a week’s worth of meals – different dishes every other day at least – that look like gourmet fare from a high end restaurant. What about those macro-balanced meal delivery services that are popping up across the city to make healthy, balanced eating easy and enjoyable (but pretty tough on your wallet)? 

We aren’t being haters here. If it works for you, any of the above are fine. It’s just that most of us aren’t made to ‘prep like a boss’.
