Fat loss made simple!

Fat Loss made simple! All you need to know to burn through fat fast! Fat loss is made to seem pretty complex now. With the hundreds of “must do’s” we see weekly on social media, it’s easy to be confused about how to drop fat and get in great shape. The latest juice cleanse, detox diets, and the extreme nutrition protocols have all led to some awesome results, so which one is right for you? Luckily, here at FX, we have you covered. 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. Even if this isn’t you now, read this article, as it could save you a LOT of trouble one day. If this IS YOU now, please take the advice. This could be the moment your results start to transform! 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...

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...

The BIG PROBLEM with most gym memberships!

This article isn’t a shock to you. We know that our current “gym memberships” are failing miserably to help people to get healthy. Here’s why, but more importantly, here's your solution.  (Note: If you're just looking for a reason to start your journey with us, and want to take that first step, click here) Before I dive into the things you can do today to make your gym membership useful, let me take you back to the days when I used to work out in local gyms. These are the days before I’d spent over a decade studying how to really make progress....

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...

3 Reasons why you’re not building muscle!

Building muscle is a key goal for a LOT of athletes and average gym goers-you’re reading this, so I’m sure it’s up there on your list too. Such a common goal, you’d think we had it figured out. Work out, build muscle. That simple. Why then, do so many of us struggle to build muscle? Why do so many people spend years training, with very little progress to show for it? The answer probably lies within one (or more!) of the following reasons.   #1- You need to train better! Yep, may as well get this one out of the way first. The...
