Building Mindset and Creating Motivation for your fitness goals

Building the right mindset and taking control of your motivation are crucial steps to achieve your fitness goals. Long term, success comes down to not only having the right plan, but making sure you develop the right mindset to move forward. The route to your fitness goals will include slip ups, stumbles, and days where you really aren’t feeling it. THAT’S OK! Your plan won’t be perfect, your progress won’t be linear, and quite honestly, regardless of commitment, you can’t control everything. You need to be comfortable with periods where you feel less motivated, and work to build this back up (I’ll...

Weighing in on weigh ins for fat loss success!

There’s no doubt about how useful they can be, and how much they can help your progress when used correctly. In fact, for fat loss plans, you’d struggle to argue that overall, they don’t add huge benefits to the plan, and allow a level of monitoring that can have a huge impact on overall success. Why then do people still dread the scale? Unfortunately, without understanding the basics of weigh ins, they can...

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...

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...

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...
