No new blogs for a while – all my spare time is going on my new website. I will have a modern and clear theme that will explain better what I can offer and the different packages available.
All the new enquiries I get every week will find it easier to understand how I can help them before getting in touch.
My time is limited – I have new clients starting with me every month and I am very grateful for their trust. Thanks for your patience and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need help. Make this the best year you’ve ever had!
If you concentrate on giving 100% during each and every workout you won’t need to worry about aching the next day. Most people use post workout muscle soreness as the standard in exercise excellence. This can be a misleading and dangerous approach to exercise that often leads to over-training and sometimes injury.
Progression will always yield results when following a properly designed exercise programme. BUT there are different factors that can dictate whether or not you will ache from exercise, some positive and some negative.
The wrong person that uses the “no pain – no gain” approach will find it very difficult to achieve results. No fancy workout or diet will help if you break down your health by adding more stress. A lot of people don’t see exercise as a stress and just think of stress as work and/or financial and/or relationship stress. This isn’t the case.
I use five different questionnaires to assess different stresses for the body. A high score in any one of them can determine a person’s readiness to exercise and confirm the right level of intensity that they should use.
A holistic approach to diet and lifestyle can quickly reduce different bodily stresses and get you ready to get the most from your workouts. Then the fun part begins – you’ll be able to experience the effectiveness of exercising smarter rather than longer to get to where you want to be.
Are you are struggling to make a difference from all of your invested time in the gym?
Are you wondering why you are always tired?
Please get in touch to find out how I could help you. Sometimes I can help people more by giving them programmes they can do at home by themselves then I can by training them one-on-one in my gym.
I’ve not had time to blog as much as I’d like to – busy with clients but still have a few time slots available.
Please contact me if you are ready to make a commitment to change your health and fitness – challenging yourself in the bargain!
Visible abdominals are on everybody’s wish list especially at this time of year. Almost everyone is trying to get a six-pack who belongs to a gym, yet it is also one of the things that evade most people.
One of the main reasons for this frustration is the lack of knowledge people have about getting abdominals. You must train hard and consistently to get results but more importantly you mustn’t waste your time doing the wrong thing. The more you believe in the commercials advertising abdominal machines that guarantee results or pills that promise to burn fat around your midsection the more discouraged you will become.
Here is a brief list of what is required to see those abdominals.
1. You need to do abdominal exercises that will develop strength of the abdominal muscles.
2. Your selection of abdominal exercises need to consist of exercises that work the abdominals from all angles rather than merely doing crunches.
3. Your body fat percentage needs to be low enough so you can see your abdominals. Doing abdominal workouts won’t shrink fat away from your midsection. You must eat the correct kind of diet that will help you achieve low levels of body fat.
Once you have these elements in place you must address exercise frequency, rest between sets and repetitions or you’ll be making it harder for yourself to achieve results.
I can only ever take a certain number of personal training clients at one time. This unfortunately means that there can, occasionally, be a waiting list for my personal training services. But don’t let that put you off.
Firstly, you can be assured that you will receive the very best of my attention. And secondly, as long as you are prepared to make the necessary changes and put forward 100% effort to achieving your goals I will do my best to accommodate you.
Don’t hesitate to start your health and fitness journey toady! Plan everything!
Now taking bookings for January – for new clients.
Exercise Whenever You Can – Short exercise sessions of even 10-15 minutes are better than nothing but try for 30 minutes minimum.
Don’t Set Unrealistic Exercise Goals – Instead of aiming to do your usual workouts why not try something completely different? Why not try workouts that take only half the time of what you normally do. Make it fun and it’s all right to divide it up into intervals during the day if you want.
Make Workouts a Priority – Whatever happens try not to leave too long a gap between exercise sessions or you will find it more difficult to get back into it after all of the Christmas excess. Try early morning workouts if you have to. Focus your workouts to maintain your current fitness levels rather than beat your personal best.
