Should we all train like athletes?

Athletes are often the pinnacle of physique and performance. When you want to get really good at something, people will tell you to “look at what the best people at that are doing”. More often than not, people who have achieved success tend to do a lot of things right. So, in context of the post, athletes tend to be the people who we look at for our physical goals. Want to be leaner? Faster? Stronger? Surely this is a good starting point: do what they do? You’d be right, and also very wrong, all at once. For me as a strength and...

Good Nutrition: Beyond the Numbers, PART 2

Good Nutrition is about MORE THAN FUEL As discussed in part one, looking at "good nutrition" only  from a perspective of fuel, calories and macros has its limitations. Food is a recovery tool, a key component to health, a signal for your body to adapt, and much more. A good nutrition plan isn’t just about controlling energy balance, or about getting enough of any one vitamin, mineral or macronutrient- it’s about all of it. A fully considered nutrition plan should cover the following: Controls energy balance to meet our goals Aids healthy digestion Has adequate protein and essential fats as a baseline Have...

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...

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...

Get your priorities right!

Are your priorities right to achieve your fitness goals? I’ve made this mistake. If you’re completely honest, you probably have too. In fact, you could be making it right now. You see, getting not your priorities right in fitness is a huge reason people fail to reach their goal. Think about it for a second. How many times have you said “this is it, I will achieve (insert goal here)”. Every time you make this commitment, you see yourself succeed. Maybe in your minds eye you’re walking on the beach, lean, feeling awesome. Maybe you’re hitting that huge deadlift. Maybe you’re playing...

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...
