Social networks have opened the doors to meet some professions that, until now, had gone slightly unnoticed, despite being very necessary for our health. That is the case of dietitians-nutritionists. Thanks to the numerous and very professional and useful disclosure accounts that currently exist, we have begun to learn not only things about our nutrition, but the importance of having a good professional.
Preparing our curriculum vitae, whether we are looking for work, as if what we want is a job improvement, can be complicated.

Last night, El Hormiguero radically changed the style of guests that usually leads to the program: if most of the days we can see interviews with actors, actresses, singers and other artists who also go to promote their latest works, yesterday we could see in prime time Dr. Pedro Cavadas, one of the most important plastic surgeons in our country and worldwide.

Although it is somewhat simplistic, we can classify gyms in two types: neighborhood gym and gym belonging to a franchise. Not necessarily one is better than another, it will depend on many factors: personnel that manages it, monitors, equipment and materials, offer of activities ... We will try to make an analysis of the different aspects to take into account when choosing a gym and see what strengths and weaknesses both neighborhood gyms and franchise gyms or gym chain have.

It is curious how far some people can go by trying to demonstrate things that should not be demonstrated, and here is the case of Maria Strydom, a vegan climber who wanted to show that vegans can do everything.

The physical aspect or health of the person who gives us advice on nutrition or exercise can have an important influence on the information we receive and, above all, on how we receive it. So much so that a study indicates that nutritional recommendations given by people with excess weight are considered less reliable by those who receive them.
We name them every day, we know them perfectly, even some are so famous that we use them to refer to an object.

Ross Edgley is a writer, scientist and sportsman who loves to set challenges and perform all kinds of experiments, and in the latter he decided to lose more 10 kilos in 24 hours.

Although gyms try to alleviate the crisis with low-cost promotions, with the increase in VAT it is estimated that the average number of casualties in gyms is around 25% and in some cases, it can reach 40%.
The fitness and sports sector is not getting rid of the crisis either. If about four years ago when it all started it was seen how the gyms also noticed the crisis, now they will notice much more since the VAT of the gyms will rise from 8 to 21%. It is therefore passed from the reduced rate to the general, a rise of no less than 13%.

I read a very curious news in Menéame: the owner of a gym in Madrid closes and leaves the members hanging with the fees paid. Like any other business, gyms are also affected by the crisis and their users are seen without a gym, with lost fees and even with their belongings inside.
