The Right Type of Cardio

When most people decide to get into shape and become fitter they generally turn to heart healthy ‘cardio’ exercise — running, swimming, cycling and more. In recent times the new craze in the fitness industry has been the insurgence of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).


For years the fitness world has prescribed Steady State Cardio (SSC) as the preferred method for burning fat, losing weight and getting into shape. But now it all seems to be about HIIT. I constantly get asked what is the best form of exercise for burning fat and losing weight? Is it HIIT or SSC? This can be a complicated question to answer, as really it is about application. To help understand cardio training more, you need to know about fuel systems.

Job Search

Social Media is a powerful tool… for good and for evil. As quickly as it can boost your presence, it can also tear it down. What you post on your social media profile can put you out of the running for a job you want, or even cost you one that you already have. Simply put, most recruiters and headhunters will check your Social Media profile. 78 percent of recruiters will type your name into a search engine to see what comes up, and 63 percent will look into your social media sites as well.

Demolition Derby

If there’s one thing anyone who knows me can tell you, it’s this: I’m not a good driver. Motorbikes are fine, but put me behind the wheels of a car and it’s a much different story.

Staying Healthy in the Heat

As the thermometer climbs, we need to remind ourselves how to stay healthy in the heat. The danger for some is heat exhaustion, which is a condition whose symptoms may include weakness, headache, dizziness, muscle cramps, nausea or vomiting and rapid heart beat. All of this is a result of your body overheating.

The Costly Typo

One thing that really annoys me is typos (I cringe at the mistakes in people’s resumes and online profiles everyday) and before any of you come banging on my door, I know I make them, too. That annoys me most of all. And while I think typos do cost the maker some money in lost opportunities and credibility, the following are the most expensive typos ever.

The Cholesterol Myth

I am constantly asked how many eggs are safe to eat per day or week. The myth that cholesterol causes heart disease and because eggs contain cholesterol and fats therefore are bad for us, is just plain wrong.

Tablet Schools

Student Eye

When I was 13, I got my first-ever cell phone — a tiny black Nokia phone, with a screen as big as my thumb. Four years later, I’m sitting here with a 4.5-inch screen full-touch smart phone, an iPod containing my favourite 347 songs, and a Fujitsu tablet, its screen capable of spinning 180 degrees.

It's All in the Cow

For years we’ve been told red meat is bad for us, that it is unhealthy and the cause of cancer. Is this really the case? The simple fact is that animal products are only as healthy as the animal they come from.

What to Say in an Interview

It’s not just what you say in a job interview but also what you ask that matters. Answers tell an interviewer what you know, but questions tell them how you think, which is arguably more important. By asking insightful and engaging questions you can separate yourself from the pack and demonstrate more effectively your true value. It also provides you a chance to learn more and really make sure this is a place you want to work.
