Eat Better presentation

16/05/2019

http://bit.ly/2VnF8rZ

Just finished my first Eat Better presentation in a corporate setting and the early feedback suggests it went well.

The brief was to talk to some of the staff about eating better and more healthily. But most importantly, how they can actually go about doing it. Using my new Eat Better website as a framework, we quickly ended up riffing off on tangents as they asked really good questions.

I’ve done a few presentations recently and so far I’ve really enjoyed doing them. And even though I may be a tiny bit biased, I think I have been able to do them better than many I’ve had to attend during the years I’ve worked at a proper job!

So if you would like to hire me to do a similar kind of presentation, let me know!

My favourite core exercise

14/05/2019

http://bit.ly/2YsH7Z6

I train people with quite a wide range of abilities. On one end of the spectrum I train with some very fit, strong, athletic people. On the other end, I train with people with disabilities, chronic pain and degenerative conditions.

But I still have a favourite core training exercise I try to do with all of them, regardless of their abilities…

Hitting things as hard as possible!

I was with a client recently who needs to use a wheelchair. They can stand and take a few steps, but their balance and confidence are not super high.

And I’ve had a few people give me funny looks when I get this client to stand tall and punch the pads as hard as they can.

I get even more funny looks when we swap roles and they hold the pads as I punch them!

But try it yourself… To throw hard punches, and to be able to absorb hard punches, takes a lot of things to work well… Including balance and core strength.

Because of the physics equation:

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction

Even when you are throwing a punch yourself, you are in effect, being hit back with equal force. But you are in control of that force… So it’s a fantastic way of learning how to recover balance and absorb impacts in a safe way.

Oh, and it’s great fun too!

So why not give it a go? And let me know how things go in the comments below…

Eat Better – My new website!

Eat Better
Click here to Eat Better…

Announcing my new website! Eat Better! Go take a look at it at:

www.EatBetterToday.co.uk

I’ve been coaching people in exercise for many years now. But along with the exercise, there is obviously the nutrition side too. And for too long I have found myself saying the same thing over and over again to clients…

So to help me help them (and as a happy by-product, everyone else out there) I’ve set up a new, dedicated website all about helping people change their eating habits for the long term.

It is about 95% complete right now. There shouldn’t be any spelling mistakes left and all the info and links should hopefully work (if anything is broken, there is a feedback form…please let me know so I can fix it!)

All that is left is for me to get a bunch of people to give it a test drive and give me honest feedback on how it looks and works…

That is where you come in! So before I figure out how to make it pay it’s own way, please go check it out and share the hell out of it!

90% of it is simply turning up

30/04/2019

http://bit.ly/2PANV3E

If in doubt, just turn up!

The following is a common phrase I often hear during training…

“I’m doing rubbish today! What’s wrong with me!”

Everyone at some point.

And I’m going to tell you what I tell them when they say it…

Don’t worry. No one crushes it in training every session. No one! In fact, if you think about it logically, the majority of training sessions are just “average”. Only a few are “amazing” while a only a few are “rubbish”. The important thing is you are here and you are doing it here and now. Bloody well done!

Despite what you may have read or been taught or had drilled into you, the “go hard or go home” attitude is a fantasy. The majority of our success comes from simply having the right attitude to just turn up and get stuck in.

I’m not gonna lie, if you want to be a world champion, then it will take a hell of a lot more than just that…but I want you to ask yourself honestly…are you really honestly aiming to be world champion?

If the answer is yes, then go for it! I’ll be first in the queue to get your autograph.

But if the honest answer is no, then you will almost certainly get better results if you stop beating yourself up. Congratulate yourself for turning up when things are not perfect and when others would have bailed, and keep getting stuck in and enjoying it.

Turn up. Get Stuck in. Enjoy.

I’ve seen too many good people beat themselves up because they are not “perfect”. Don’t ever forget the phrase that pays…

“Turn up.

Get stuck in.

Enjoy.”

Ancient Welsh proverb.
