“Enjoy the Journey!” and other unhelpful advice…

Sometimes, I read my old blogs, shake my head and laugh (kindly, or course) at the sheer naivety of my thoughts when I was just getting started as a PT. Today, we’ll revisit one I wrote about enjoying the journey and update it, with the benefit of the useful stuff I know now, so that […]

Nutrition Success – It’s NOT All About The Food!

You know, we’ve got this eating healthy thing all wrong. There’s 2 halves to it, and one of those halves NEVER gets mentioned. Probably because it has NOTHING to do with food. Literally nothing to do with what you eat, how much, when or any of that stuff. I know – it’s a bit of […]

Normal People, Ninja Health Skills!

This week has definitely been a game of 2 halves. Yesterday, I did one of the toughest – and best – workouts I’ve ever done, whereas Tuesday saw a chocolate-eating fest of fairly EPIC proportions.

It’s Lent – Give Up Something Good!

From what I’ve heard, there’s a lot of chocolate that won’t get eaten over the next few weeks… A lot more lonely bottles of wine standing abandoned on the supermarket shelves… Quite a few biscuits left to go stale in tins around the UK… It’s Lent! Of course, none of that will matter at all, […]

It’s Not A Lack Of Willpower. Here’s What’s Really To Blame.

A lot of people seem to simply resign themselves to the fact that they are someone who has no willpower and that’s why they fail to beat their bad habits. That mindset is a non-starter. Thinking like that won’t get you anywhere. AND IT’S NOT TRUE. Willpower is not the thing you need to fix, […]

Are You Setting Health Goals With Your Brain, Again!?!?

I don’t exercise to get big. I don’t exercise to get small. I don’t eat in order to sculpt my body at all. Haha, accidental rhyming alert! I’ve been musing on this a while, because there’s seems to be a new slant on fitness appearing in the mainstream more and more lately. It’s always been […]
