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 […]

As we start to hurtle towards the winter, and cold season, I thought it would be a good idea to write about boosting your immune system.

The two biggest areas to focus your attention on in order to boost your immune system are gut health, and stress management.

Over 70% of your immune system is located in your gut. So, keep your gut happy by keeping junky food or things which don’t agree with you to a minimum, and instead make […]

When you’re thinking about starting a new workout routine, our first thoughts tend to be to simply move more. Which is super, and the absolute best first step you can take.

Often, we want to add in a specific workout too and, while the array of workouts available is vastly improved these days, there are plenty of fad type workouts which promise to help you lose weight and tone your *insert bodypart* by doing various strange looking, single-muscle focussed, exercises […]

So. Boris wants us all to join him on his quest to lose weight. Excellent! We have massive problems in this country with obesity and related health issues.

At last the attention of the country is on improving our health and fitness with the intention of improving our health and resilience rather than simply focussing on getting slimmer.

I’m hopeful that this may pave the way for more programs designed with health, resilience and longevity in mind, and less fad-type diet and exercise programs.

Boris has also been talking about how you don’t need a gym to […]

Are Harder Workouts Better?

There is a general feeling that the harder the workout, the better it is. But this is not true.

There is a time for intense workouts – but the tough, complex workouts so often touted by the fitness industry as ‘the answer’ are beyond the capability of most of the people who sign up for them.

Time after time, I speak to clients who are fed up with the short term fixes which leave them burnt out and often injured. It doesn’t […]
