3 Ways To Improve Energy Levels

One of the most common things I hear from new personal training clients, is that they have poor energy levels and find it hard to train effectively or even concentrate all day at work.

With this in mind I thought I’d give you all 3 of my favourite tips for improving energy, which will lead to better productivity and better results in the gym.

New Year New You - 3 Tips To A Better Body

New Year New You - 3 Tips To A Better Body

So the Christmas and New Year period is out of the way and we have all eased ourselves back into work and some semblance of normality. For the majority of us, the most exercise we will have done over the holidays is struggle to get a tin of Quality Street open. We’ve eaten and drunk everything in sight and as a result we feel fat, lethargic and in need of kick starting our body back into life.

Don't Worry About the Minutia... Yet

Don't Worry About the Minutia... Yet

All too often I’m faced with questions by people who worry far too much about the minutia of fat loss, the small details, before they have the macro elements in place first. Questions like “will nuts make me fat?” or “should I be taking X, Y or Z supplement” for instance, when I know that the person in question has drinking habits that make Charlie Sheen look like a teetotaller.

Tips to stick to your new years resolutions

5 Tips to ensure you stick to your New Year’s Resolutions

Some people are really pessimistic about New Year’s resolutions, not me, I like them, I think January is a great time to reflect on what went well and what didn’t go so well the year before and then set targets for the year ahead.

However, the stat I found the other day (which is maybe not overly surprising) is that 92% of people fail with their New Years resolutions. In this article I’m going to address how you can change that.

Goal Setting for 2016

We’re midway through December, Christmas parties are in full swing, and you are probably already a little sick of minced pies and festive cocktails. You’ve already got one eye on January, in the back of your mind you can’t wait to have a sober month and eat some vegetables.

But when January comes what’s the plan? Are you going to turn up at the gym that you joined at the start of the year and have never been to and simply wing it? Or are you going to follow a set plan?

How to get rid of lower belly fat

How to get rid of lower belly fat

It doesn’t matter whether they are male or female, young or old, a huge percentage of my personal training clients come to see me because they want to lose belly fat. This might not necessarily be because they want abs they could wash their clothes on, especially as in this day and age they probably have a washing machine, it is simply because they need to lose a little bit of the podge after too many months over indulging.

Personal Trainer Tips - Simplifying How To Get Results

Personal Trainer Tips - Simplifying How To Get Results

One of my roles as a personal trainer is being able spell out exactly what is required of my clients in the simplest way possible. I have met countless people that fret over the smallest of details, yet fail to sometimes look at the bigger picture. Clients who stress out over how many almonds constitutes a handful, yet fail to see that it is more likely the fact that they spend more time socialising with Ernest and Julio Gallo, than they do in the gym, that is their biggest issue.

The Desire to Succeed

The Desire to Succeed

Steve and I have over 20 years experience within the personal training industry and have taken hundreds of clients through tens of thousands of hours worth of personal training. We have seen radical body composition changes in a huge amount of clients and used virtually every method under the sun (firstly on ourselves, then our clients) to test out what works and what doesn’t. We are certainly not experts (in my eyes if you call yourself an expert then you are up your own backside) however we are certainly pretty well placed to make an informed decision on what it takes to lose body fat.

So what is it that our clients, friends and family members who we have helped to change have in common? Desire.
