Struggling With Two Steps Backwards

17th March 2020

Slow Down For Faster Results

17th January 2020

I want to talk a little about me BUT a lot about you. It’s been a whole 3 months since I joined my first ever CrossFit gym and I’m over the moon with my progress so far. There is still a long way to go, but instead of getting frustrated by how impossible some things can feel (muscle ups, barbell snatches and handstand walks to name a few) I feel motivated to practice and make progress.

Raise a Glass to More of This

7th January 2019

It's that time of year again where you begin to consider what will work this time in your quest to be healthy. Maybe you should temporarily move into the gym, just live on celery dipped in fat free yogurt or not touch a carb until the clocks go forward. Many resolutions decided (or just contemplated) in January are usually missing actual solutions to the problems that affect your health negatively. There's ONE resolution in particular which is often overlooked but could make a big difference to your wellbeing.

Chasing Squirrel’s and Four Lessons in Fat Loss

12th November 2018

I love a good analogy and this one is pure gold, based on a true story too. There is nothing Hamish loves more than a good squirrel hunt, but for a long time he never came close to catching one, however, the other morning he did something which amazed me. Bizarrely, it also got me thinking about how people often approach to fat loss…. bear with.

Radiators and Drains: Spend Your Time Wisely

13th April 2018

Throughout life you come across (and end up hanging out with) all kinds of people. Despite the diversity they often fall into two very important categories in terms of how you're left feeling after your time together.  We refer to them as "radiators" or "drains."  Taking a moment to decipher who you spend most of your time with can make a big difference to your own health.

Self Doubt, Bunions and Party Tricks

5th February 2018

I haven’t lost the plot but you can be forgiven for thinking so with a title like that! So you might be wondering what do these three things have in common. The answer is quite simply that they all made me feel like I wasn’t good enough, they almost stopped me in my tracks and held me back from doing something I felt passionate about.

4 Tips To Help Ride Out The “Healthy” Discomfort Zone

22nd January 2018

We’re over half way through January and I've definitely seen loads of people emerging from their caffeine, sugar and alcohol withdrawals and starting to experience a new sense of awesomeness. However, it might be the case that you're still treading water with this healthy malarkey and just counting down the days until you can resume business as usual. Every single day can feel like a struggle as you battle cravings, wade through daily dullness and feel constantly distracted by the lack of reward in your life.

FITTER Festive Survival Guide

14th December 2017

We LOVE Christmas but it’s easy to get carried away with all the booze, biscuits and boxes of chocolates on offer around the clock. Whilst it’s great to indulge a little with friends and family and get stuck into the festivities you don’t want to end the year feeling miserable because you’ve gained weight, you’re knackered, bloated and your skin is suffering a breakout. All of this can put you in a negative mood and make you no good company to be around, not an ideal mindset to kick off 2018 .

Stuck In Health Rut? Three Steps To Freedom

9th November 2016

Stuck in a health rut? Typically this kind of rut involves a degree of excessiveness or poor choices regarding food, alcohol, caffeine, smoking, exercise, work, recreational drugs and even spending money. Often it's hard to change these habits because they're providing a source of happiness or distraction and at the same time creating a cycle of dependency by squashing the bodies natural sense of motivation and positivity.

15 Things I Wish I Knew 15 Years Ago

29th February 2016

Nutrition and health information is constantly evolving; once vilified saturated fats like coconut oil and butter are now considered superfoods, cardio was the solution to fat loss then HIIT made an appearance and we're now just waiting for the tables to turn on peanut M&M's. Despite the fads and fashions that come and go there are some fundamental aspects of health that have continually stood the test of time and advanced in scientific research. Despite many of them being obvious components of health I wish someone had emphasised their importance to me a few years ago, healthy living would have been much easier and enjoyable for a start.

4 Simple Ways To Get More From Your Workouts

17th February 2016

Did you know you could get so much more from your training routine without spending any longer in the gym? I don’t mean you have to absolutely obliterate yourself and go from sprints on the treadmill to flying off the end and landing in the squat rack to then perform a non stop back to back circuit designed so you can actually see your heart beating through your chest.
