It’s a bit deep…

Body confidence… I don’t have it. That’s not what you expect to hear from a Personal Trainer though is it? I don’t like my arms, I don’t have abs, and I’m a little bit anxious about a hen weekend coming up where everyone will be in a bikini. But not because I wish I...
Will You Be Watching?

Will You Be Watching?

OMG. Game of Thrones returns TONIGHT! Will you be watching? There’s a fair chance you’re sat on the sofa right now, having marked this in your diary a couple of weeks ago. And whether it’s Game of Thrones, Line of Duty (love it) or you’re more of a Sewing Bee or Queer...
A Weight Off Your Mind

A Weight Off Your Mind

Mindset is something I’ve been trying to apply more into my routine lately. Don’t worry, I’m not saying we all need to sit cross legged and chant ommm but a slight shift in your mindset can be a game changer.  It takes time and I’m by no means an expert. It’s...
You are not a cow

You are not a cow

Or a turnip. Or pic n mix for that matter. When people get in touch with us, the first thing we ask is what they want to achieve through working with us. And I reckon at least 80% say “to lose weight.” Which, frankly, is a load of bullocks. See what I did...

I’m just going to say it…

…January is a right b*st@rd. The decorations are down, you’re back to work, back to the daily grind. Setting that alarm is daunting enough without bringing it forward an extra hour to venture out in the dark to exercise… “I’ll just hit snooze and go tonight...

Waiting ’til Monday?

Not started on that resolution just yet? Already put it off until Monday, because you couldn’t possible start on a Wednesday? If so, I’m sorry but this isn’t going to work. My advice? Figure out exactly what it is that you want to achieve this year. Put aside your...
I’m A Cheapskate

I’m A Cheapskate

12 years ago when I first started working as a PT, money was super-tight. So I bought myself the cheapest wristwatch I could find. A £20 Casio, plain black and pretty basic…but it did the job. It tells me the time, has a countdown function, a stopwatch, and it just...

I hope you’re all having an amazing time eating delicious food and making new memories with people you love. Today we move onto another tradition – the Boxing Day sales. Most of you reading this will probably be planning on (if you haven’t already) spending some...
Why Women Are Less Needy Than Men

Why Women Are Less Needy Than Men

Oh no, he’s done it this time, he’s gone too far… I wanted to talk about one of the most common reasons women struggle to lose weight, and how to avoid it yourself. It’s not an obvious one, until you stop and think about it. I share the GT office with a woman....
