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...

Why we’re all so unhealthy… and how to fix it!

I’ll get straight to it, unless something changes, we’re all f**ked. 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...

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. If it has calories, its probably bad right? 2 weeks in- look and feel like s***Massive blip- take away/ alcohol Bad Day- F...

More than Macro’s! Why the over simplified view of fat loss fails.

Want to get lean (or hench- it works for either), but finding that regardless of tracking, somethings just not clicking? You NEED to read this. This is why it's about more than macros. I’m sorry. There, I said it. I Know everyone is looking for the most simple, quick fix answer, and unfortunately, this aint it. I’m just going to say it. Your body is not simple- there is no quick fix, and you’re more than just a machine. That said, get it right, and you’re rate of progress will probably be awesome! There IS a solution, but it takes some relatively complex understanding of...

Stop working hard in the gym without results and progress!

Tired of not making progress in the gym? Here’s why, and what you can do to get back to progress! Fat loss plans, muscle building plans, fitness plans. All completely different, yet most fail for the EXACT SAME reasons. The fitness and nutrition industry has spent years telling people that a magic product or plan is the reason to get results, and without it you won’t be able to progress. Weight loss? Grab a shake instead of food! Muscle building? Follow this “perfect plan”! Fitness development? Buy this new product…. You see the trend? And by the way, all of these...

Why the Perfect Diet OR Awesome Training Programme doesn’t work

How to get in shape… 80% diet, 20% training…… Follow this nutrition plan to shred fat….. This training programme is perfect for fat loss…. All of these statements are fundamentally flawed, as fat loss CAN ONLY HAPPEN when both energy intake and energy output are accounted for. Let me talk you through how fat loss works, and explain that when it comes to fat loss, energy in should always be considered alongside energy out- not just from the training session, but over the entire day, repeated consistently the majority of the time for sustainable results. “Wait a minute… I lost...

How to diet on a body transformation!

Fat loss for busy people!  Simple rules of fat loss!  but this one focuses on three awesome strategies that  make your diet possible, meaning you succeed on your fitness journey. Now, before I begin, let me start with the housekeeping. This WILL ONLY work fully if you have the following in place. You are tracking your nutrition, every day, for the duration of the plan....

Achieving your body transformation: The training programme

What does it take to achieve a body transformation? I’m talking about getting huge results in a relatively short space of time- build lean muscle, drop large amounts of bodyfat, look and feel great, be happy and healthy, smiling, laughing, and generally having only one regret…. wishing you’d done it sooner! Well, I’m going to let you in on some truths. Yeah, the end result may be this awesome feeling (and trust me, it will be worth it!), but why doesn’t everyone do it? A body transformation is hard, that’s why. So, before you say “this is it! This is my time”, wait...

Sick of the “just eat less food” Idea? How about eating more, for less calories?

Today’s blog post is a short, simple idea, yet one that is often missed by everyone looking to achieve fat loss. We are constantly being told to eat less food. But do you really need to? Basics again- we need to create a calorie deficit. To do this, we can use more energy, consume fewer calories, or both. Let’s target the consume fewer calories option (as this one is the key part of the equation). Of course, we can keep eating the same foods, just less. This will do it- you will lose weight (all other factors being equal). But… This...
