Supplements and Magazines

26th February 2015

Supplement companies are raking in the £££ but do we really need all we are being sold? Yesterday my bro knocked on my door and asked me about BCAA’s (branch chain amino acids) and if I could order him some… This I though was weird, not least because he never knocks! But mainly because I’ve […]

Personal Training Douchebags WARNING: Rant Alert I took one of my clients out for lunch yesterday, I do that sometimes to say thanks for just being an awesome person (and listening to me ;-) ) Funnily enough they are always on ‘good behaviour’ with their food when I take them out… ;-) I digress As […]

Light bulb moment, why your progress may be stagnating

13th February 2015

I’ve heard this a lot recently… ‘I just want to reach ‘x’ weight and I’ll be happy’ OR ‘The numbers on the scales just aren’t going down…’ When I hear my clients saying this to me, it makes me feel sad And not because it appears that they are not making progress But because they […]
