Weight gain is typically associated with eating too much and not doing enough exercise - but there have been many studies which suggest there are more factors at work.
Last year, Marsden published this blog post highlighting 10 things your doctor wishes you knew about weight loss. It highlighted the effects stress and a lack of sleep can have on your weight.
But what other things that might not have crossed your mind may be influencing your weight loss efforts? Marsden investigates.
We’re still in the middle of festive season, and for most people - even those who plan to detox or lose weight in January - putting the brakes on the chocolates and red wine probably seems far off in the distant future.
Right now, no-one wants to think of the diet regimes that will likely be on their resolutions list less than a week from now. But actually, a bit of pre-planning now may go along way and help you when it comes to those long, boring, calorie-less days of January 2019.
Last year, Marsden partnered with Lewes FC: One of the UK’s most forward-thinking football clubs. This weekend, six months on, we caught up with them to see how they were getting on with their Marsden MBF-6010 Body Composition Scale.
The occasion was Lewes’ home game against Greenwich Borough. Prior to the match, three Lewes players and one of the club’s physios spoke to us about how and why they use the MBF-6010. Watch the video below to hear what they said.
Whether your gym or sports club’s members are striving to lose fats or gain muscle, they will all be united when it comes to tracking the changes in their weight or BMI with a professional gym scale.
At Marsden, we appreciate that not all gym-goers are the same, and so we’ve put together a range of gym scales to try to suit every member’s needs.
But we also appreciate that sometimes you may need a help in choosing the right gym scale for you and your club - and this blog post is here to help.
2016 has been Marsden's busiest in its 90 year history - and we have our customers to thank for that!
2017 looks set to be just as busy already. In the year ahead we’ll be adding many new products to our range of medical weighing scales.
These are the medical scales we will be launching in the first six months of 2017...
In December 2015, Marsden launched a brand new weighing scale: The Smart Diet Scale.
Nine months on, and Smart Diet Scales are being used by the English Institute of Sport, Diabetes UK… And countless dieters, bodybuilders and athletes. A major league British actor was also sent one as part of a forthcoming documentary (sorry - we have to remain tight-lipped on that one!)
Since December, the developers of this intelligent dieting scale have made numerous improvements to the accompanying smartphone app (this is the bit that provides you with all the nutritional values once you have weighed your meal on the scale). It’s the latest update that makes this an even more vital purchase for UK buyers, however.
For celebrities, particularly sports stars, keeping on top of these readings is vital if they want to maintain their physique. To give you an idea of how and why body composition readings are important to the stars, we’ve published a new poster, which you can download below.
Of all the readings available from body composition scales, BMI is the most commonly-used reading for measuring body health.
Since we launched the Smart Diet Scale in December 2015, we've seen it appear all over Instagram, take centre stage at the Ideal Home Show and win Best Personal/Fitness Scale in the Weighing Review Awards.
Now, we're pleased to announce that, at the end of this month, the Smart Diet Scale will have thousands more products added to its database. Those who already use this innovative scale will know that this will make getting food nutrition data even faster and more accurate.
Primarily, there will be thousands of items added from leading UK supermarkets and brands.
