5 Tips for Training Success

5 Tips for Training Success

For 6 months last year I was part of a beta-testing group for a new program by Dean Somerset called High Tensile Strength. It will be released later this year and even has its own teaser. How cool is that! It’s like an invitation to star in your own action film! I signed up for several reasons; for something different, for someone else to write my programs, for motivation, for accountability, to learn new things… and of course to get results. Here’s a before and after photo.... continue
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
The Anti-Jet Lag Diet

The Anti-Jet Lag Diet

I just got back from a holiday to the UK and the flights there and back were a perfect opportunity to try out an anti-jet lag diet I’d been reading about. Here’s the deal: You know what? It worked. I’ve never found jet lag a problem when flying Perth to London, but coming back can be horrible. Nights of waking up at 2 in the morning and not being able to go back to sleep really suck. But this time I had one night where I woke up... continue
The Dubrovnik Workout

The Dubrovnik Workout

Being on holidays it can be really easy to eat and drink too much. But doing a little bit of exercise can be all the motivation you need to eat a little better. People that exercise make better food choices. Simple. 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
A Goal, a Plan and Cut Up Hands

A Goal, a Plan and Cut Up Hands

Over the past week I’ve been asking my clients’ to think about their goals. It’s actually kind of scary (for them, not for me). I’m asking them to make a commitment that will involve change on their part and has a deadline. And let’s be honest, no-one likes change or deadlines. Add to this the fact I want progress photos, food diaries, weigh-ins and girth measurements and it’s almost as bad as being back at school. They want to exercise and I’m handing out homework! But there’s a really good reason… I want everyone... continue
