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...

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...

What Cardio is Best for fat loss?

What's the best type of cardio for fat loss? I still get this question regularly, and there’s two answers that I can support.   Answer 1: It doesn’t matter, it’s about the calorie deficit you create. Answer 2: One type is better for you when compared with the other options.   Both are correct. Let me explain…. Firstly, we know that to achieve any real, lasting fat loss, we must use more energy (calories) than we consume. I’ve discussed this in depth in previous blogs, such as the simple rules of fat loss.  Great, so that’s simple….. whatever burns the most calories is...

Staying on track over the festive period!

It’s our annual Christmas party this week at Fitness Experience, so what better time for a post on how to manage your fitness and nutrition this holiday season! Most of us gain weight throughout December, meaning the “I’m going to make a change in the new year” becomes the “I need to get back to where I am today in the new year”. Hence- once again, nothing changes. 2019 starts with a diet, you get back to your end of October shape by mid Feb, gain a little as you take your foot off the gas, train and diet again...

Recovery- Stratergies to maximise recovery from exercise

Any good training programme must balance the training stimulus with adequate recovery to maximise performance and results. As the stimulus required to achieve the desired training effect increases, as potentially does the need for maximising recovery between training sessions. This is particularly important for athletes looking to develop multiple fitness qualities at the same time, or those training several times per day. An inability to recover effectively from these sessions may leave you feeling sore, increase the risks of illness and leave you unable to complete the training sessions at the required intensity. It is beyond the scope of this...

The simple rules of fat loss! All you need to know to burn through fat fast!

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. This is the reason completely different “diets” appear to work, even though they may be conflicting in the approach (for example high-fat and...
