What I Believe

What I Believe

In the time I’ve been a personal trainer I’ve gone from feeling like I know everything, to knowing nothing, over and over. The more I learnt, the more I realised I didn’t know and at times it seemed overwhelming. How could I possibly train anyone without having degrees in physiotherapy, biomechanics and psychology? But the more time I spent training people, the more perspective it gave me on what was important and what wasn’t, and I started to develop a philosophy. Once I realised what... continue
Holiday Workout

Holiday Workout

Today we have another installment of “holiday workouts” for you thanks to Helen and Jordie who were in Europe recently. As you’ll see, they’ve set a new standard in production value. Crossfit have names for some of their workouts, so I thought my clients deserved workouts named after them as well. Here are the details of the three workouts Helen and Jordie did.

Marriage Advice

Marriage Advice

My sister Eleanor got married last month and she was kind enough to ask me to give a speech. Perhaps she would have reconsidered if she’d known I was going to compare a good marriage to an early morning workout! Getting Out of Bed There are some days you don’t want to get out of bed.

Just 10 minutes in the morning is all you need to help maintain your fitness and stop yourself from spiralling into a cinnamon scroll of self-loathing. A number of boot-campers are visiting Dubrovnik this year, so this workout is especially for them. 3 sets... continue
100 Snatches in 5 Minutes. Check.

100 Snatches in 5 Minutes. Check.

Back in October I set myself a goal of being able to do 100 snatches in 5 minutes with a 24kg kettlebell. Well today I did it. 100 snatches in 5 minutes? Hmmm, don’t mind if I do. Do you know how many other goals I was working on at the same time? None. Nada. Zip. Zero. I knew that by putting all my energy into achieving just one thing I was far more likely to succeed. And now I’ve mastered that I can go on... continue
Do You Service Yourself?

Do You Service Yourself?

And when I ask “do you service yourself?”, I obviously mean “are you performing maintenance on yourself?”. But I know what you were thinking. Shame on you! I’ve recently begun screening clients using the Functional Movement Screen. It’s a way to discover any dysfunction in your movement patterns. Based on the results we can recommend corrective exercises. But why do you have to wait for me?  If you know you can’t touch your toes, then what are you doing about it? Can you touch your hands behind... continue
