Fat Loss made simple! All you need to know to burn through fat fast! Fat loss is made to seem pretty complex now.

Any fat loss plan works by underlying mechanisms, such as creating an energy deficit, to get results....

Why we avoid having a “training type”

What's your training type? Bodybuilding? Crossfit? Powerlifting? Elite Performance? Health and Wellness? Here's why we don't sit in any specifc camp when it comes to fitness, and you probably shouldn't either (don't worry- this won't upset you, but might enlighten you)! Yesterday I had a short, but pretty interesting conversation. Here's how it went: "ah yeah, I've heard of you guys- so what type of gym is it?" Enter my spiel of "well, we work with a lot of different types of clients, but we approach things differently. We're focused on the individual getting results, whether that's with our group training, 1-1 or online coaching...

Why stress is limiting your gains!

This article is a big one, but may be one of the key things you read this year- why STRESS is limiting your gains! Not just from a muscle building perspective, but from every level of fitness and performance. “How have your stress levels been this week? What did you do to manage stress this week?” These questions are answered every week by all of our clients on the check in form. And the responses always interest me. Here’s some we see ALL the time: “Stress isn’t an issue for me so no plan needed to manage it, I just need to focus...

Why you need to STOP DIETING to boost your results!

Working hard, dieting hard, and not getting the results you “deserve”? Here’s a solution that will probably be the best move right now: STOP DIETING.

Or ignore it for a while, then come back to it in 6 months when you realise you should have listened first time… your call. So, what the hell am I talking about? After all, generally I’m telling...

Fat loss habits to achieve a healthier you in the new year (and why you keep doing it wrong)!

I’ve written this post to help you to change your life, or to help you pass it to someone close to help them change theirs. It’s a little longer than usual, but stick with it. These habits will make this year a success … New Year, New You, AGAIN. This was the heading on a flyer we put out a couple of years ago. It’s become almost an accepted joke with those taking up their new year’s resolutions. “This year will be different because…”, Then 3-6 weeks in, it’s all out the window- and occasionally another 12 month rolls by, with...

The Christmas Diet? Using “diet breaks” and “refeeds” over the festive period

Christmas is great, but the idea of a "Christmas Diet" doesn't really spring to mind. It’s a time to catch up with families and friends, relax, reboot, and reflect on the year. But, the January resolution is an issue. It’s the year-long equivalent of “I’ll start Monday”. It gives you an excuse to hold off on your diet, and by the time November comes around, most people are already thinking of waiting until the New Year. Why? It’s obvious- the idea of a diet over the Christmas period is dreadful. It almost feels like you’re missing out on Christmas, and for those...

Making the difficult Christmas Month a success in the gym!

December again. Christmas month. That time of year where you write off your progress until January, leaving you with 4 weeks of the new year simply getting back to where you were in November. But imaging entering the new year after making good progress in December, without being a social recluse? Here’s how to have the best end to the year!   First off, it’s the same for me. Like you, December is a busy month for me. In fact, it’s probably one of my busiest months of the year in work. I have Christmas shopping to do too.  But that’s not...

Lucky for you, you’re reading this, and therefore its now up to you whether you want to go with the flow and end up at the bottom of the pit, or you make the change and improve your health, fitness, physique and life. This will cover the problem, but also how to fix it! The thing is, life has changed so much over the past few decades, mainly in awesome ways, but a few elements of this have left us overweight and/ or unhealthy. Here’s the killer points (so...

Why poor exercise execution is destroying your results- AND how to FIX IT!

Exercise execution is under valued by most people looking to make changes to their body. We put all of the emphasis on the training programme itself- the exercises- order- sets- reps……. All crucial components, but without good exercise execution, probably over emphasised. Great exercise execution with a solid programme can lead to truly remarkable results. But, an equally good programme with poor exercise execution can lead to minimal results, and a world of other problems. So, if you want to make progress, let’s dive in….

3 steps to your summer body!

Here it is, summer body time! Another year where there’s a rush to the latest fat loss supplements, fads, and pre holiday gym sessions (the only time of the year where this is an important place to be for some people) to hit those weight loss goals. Here’s how it goes…. 4 weeks from the holiday- PANIC! Start exercising 4-5x per week- as much CV as you can! Over zealous diet- low carb- low sugar- low fat- low nutrition- low everything.
