7 Weeks In

Aug 20, 2015

Category: Goals

So I am 7 weeks in to the challenge and you are expecting me to say that I feel amazing right? I don’t feel much different actually! Apart from a little smug that I am sticking to what I said I would. Well 98% of the time. I am not drinking through the week. I have completely cut out sugar. Apart from a cave last week with some Lindt 90% cacao chocolate a whole 100grams of it!! That is my 2%. I fe…

Foam Rolling or self-myofascial release is something in recent years that has become very popular with elite athletes and now average gym goers. If you are unsure what the concept is behind it or the benefits of a foam roller – I am here to tell you. While using a foam roller – you are applying pressure to a certain muscle and surrounding connective tissue which smooths and lengthens the muscle a…

You've heard it all before – you think these people are mad. Why would you pound the pavement and wreck your knees to go running when you don’t even enjoy it? I use to be like you. The idea of running scared me, actually scared me. But I thought that it was something that I should try. I liked exercise, I liked achieving things and I hated the fact that something created such a negative emotion i…

You finally drag yourself to the gym after debating whether to go or not for the last hour. You walk in the door and pull your program (if you even have one) out of the program drawer and then you spend 20 minutes longer on the treadmill walking than you really should. And then you look around the gym and wonder what you are going to do next… You pick up weights and do a few exercises, half-hearte…

What Motivates You?

Feb 04, 2015

Category: Goals

What Motivates You? To succeed in something, you have to be motivated to start and achieve something. Is that right? Motivation comes in 2 forms. External and internal or extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic motivation comes from external stimuli, other people, a coach maybe or an upcoming competition or event. Intrinsic motivation comes from within you as a person. Factors that affect you. For ex…

I can already hear the sigh of relief when I say – everything in moderation!  If you are interested in your own health and fitness, you no doubt read things on how to be fit and healthy. There is an infinite amount of information out there to digest. But do you ever find yourself thinking what is the right way or the best way?

I have become known somewhat as the ‘stretch guy’ in the gym which I didn’t expect would happen when I first started working as a personal trainer here. It has even led to me holding my own stretch class each week where I get to help out people who are stuck at desks all day move around a bit more and feel a bit looser. So you would think then that I would be that guy shouting from the rooftops th…

I have been a personal trainer for two years. I trained to become one after volunteering at a children’s helpline back in the UK. The training and the role itself taught me that I was good at listening to people and that I had a real passion for helping people (that and the 4 months that I spent in Tanzania working with orphaned and vulnerable children.) I love the interaction with a variety of pe…

Back in January we wrote about the importance of goal setting and the parameters of setting sensible, achievable goals and ones that you could stick to.               It is now September and how many of you have achieved your goals or are successfully working towards the same goal still? Or have you completely forgotten about what you set for yourself at the beginning of the year?               …
