Sometimes, it can feel like we’re doing everything right yet we don’t feel as good as we feel we should given the effort we’re making.

There’s a massive array of things which can cause this, but to get you started, here are some things to look at:

Diet
Regardless of what the theory says, and regardless of how well an approach worked for your friend, sometimes the diet you’re eating just doesn’t suit you. If you […]

Try my new quiz!

I don’t think losing weight, improving fitness and getting in shape should be viewed as a one-size-fits-all.

We’re all individuals, and we all have our own views of what’s easy and what’s not.

When it comes to eating well and exercising, we’ve got some aspects totally sussed and other things which would serve us well to work on.

And then, of course, there’s your […]

When I use the phrase ‘improving strength’ or ‘gaining a little muscle’ while explaining the best way to prime our bodies to burn fat, there’s often something of a hesitation.

Often, strength and muscle are linked inside your mind with body builder style muscles and bulking up.

But, gaining strength doesn’t have to be about lifting heavily loaded bars or huge dumbbells; you can also build strength by practicing and perfecting a whole variety of exercises, and by adjusting variables […]

Let’s talk about muscle aches after a workout.

Is it a good thing to ache? And does it mean you haven’t worked hard enough if you don’t ache the next day?

Well, the science says that no, you definitely don’t need to ache after a workout in order to be progressing. Just because you’re not aching after yesterday’s workout does not mean it wasn’t an effective workout.

But, is the flip side true too? Have […]

Huge numbers of people have flooded back to gyms this week. This re-opening of gyms seems to have initiated a ‘fresh start’ type feeling which has followed on to those who don’t fancy the gym for whatever reason and have made a start at a new at-home workout program.

It is not at all essential to exercise in a gym if you want to lose weight and make changes to your health and fitness. I […]

Are You Struggling To Make A Start?

All the information you need to make the changes you want to make to your body, fitness and nutrition is already available for free.

It is not a lack of knowledge that prevents us from getting off the starting line and making changes.

The trouble is that the massive amount of information available is often contradictory and so leaves us feeling unsure, confused and overwhelmed. The confused mind often chooses not to make any changes and instead to simply stay with what is comfortable and familiar. If we do manage to make some changes, we often don’t give them […]

For some reason, exercise seems to be put into a different category than many other things in life and we expect every workout to be a good one. We think that if we are working out regularly, we should be better every time. And if we are not better then often we decide that it is ‘obviously not working’ and that we should just quit.

But the truth we have to accept is that some days (or even weeks) you’re not […]

It is all too easy to spend all day sitting these days, yet most of us want to maintain our health and fitness – and still be able to fit into our ‘nice clothes’ when this is all over!

General movement, which we largely used to achieve without a conscious plan, now needs to be intentionally added into our day – and the time needs to be strictly guarded!

Before we were stuck at home, regardless of what structured exercise we were doing, it […]

Are You In Charge Of Your Own Results?

It’s probably not news that there are certain things in life that we can control, and certain things that we can’t control.

Things you can control are obvious – like what clothes you wear – and things you can’t control are obvious too – like the weather.

But whether you’re in control of some things, especially those relating to changing your lifestyle, can be seen as a matter of opinion.

Think about the results you would like to achieve in terms […]

Please do go and watch the videos if you haven’t already. If nothing else, they are a pretty accurate documentation of the remarkable amount of coldsores I’ve had over the last few months!

Likewise, would you like me to make some videos with different, or supplementary, content to these newsletters? Perhaps cooking videos and maybe some workout ones too?

So, the Covid rollercoaster continues, and now the weather is less cheerful, I think we all need to be paying a […]
