Time to put your health first!

With the current COVID-19 pandemic, here's a reminder people, put your health first!  I’ll get straight to it, unless something changes, we’re all f**ked. This was written originally before the world was on lockdown due to COVID-19, but I've updated it, as it's now probably more relevant than ever. If you heard that only those with "underlying health issues" were more at risk, and had a bit of a panic, you're not alone. I've seen lots of questions this week, generally about "how healthy do you need to be for this not to apply?".  Ask yourself, could you do more for your...

Nutrition beyond numbers. It’s more than macros

Part 1: It's more than macros Food is more than macros! It's not just fuel, so calorie counting can only ever tell part of the story. It is now abundantly clear that controlling calories is the key factor is weight loss, weight maintenance and weight gain. Beyond that, as a society, it seems we’re growing into the realisation that calories alone aren’t the key factor in “getting in shape”, and macronutrient (macros) counting of protein, carbs and fats is now common practice for any health and fitness enthusiasts working towards body composition goals. GREAT! So now, we know the perfect approach to get the...

Pain, especially when chronic in nature, can be an extreme physical and emotional burden on ones life, and if not addressed properly can...

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...

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?

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...

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...
