A couple of clients recently asked me what a typical day looks like for me – who I work with, does everyone have the same needs etc – and I realised that for many people, they have no idea what good quality PTs do, and the range of people they work with. So, here’s a…

Time to dispel some more myths – and this is a biggy. Everyone’s heard that lifting weights stunts your growth, right? That making kids lift anything in the gym before they’re fully grown will tear their limbs asunder and leave them vertically challenged for life. At best it’ll turn them into image-obsessed, eating disordered mini-Arnies….

How fast should I be progressing? What should I be lifting? When should I put the weight up? And by how much? You know what? These are decent questions. They’re things that people who’ve been training a while can tend to do naturally, and don’t really think about any more. But, when you’re new, or…

To people outside of gyms, it’s often a source of amazement that people pay a personal trainer. “I wouldn’t pay someone to count for me” “Just teach yourself on YouTube” “It’s lazy getting someone else to do the work for you” Unsurprisingly, we think all those statements are pretty ignorant.

But for those that don’t use our coaching and like to program for themselves, we thought we’d offer some suggestions of movements you might not think you could do here….

A lot of the PT profession spends more time trying to impress you with their knowledge, than getting you results. I’m not anti-science, not by a LONG shot. But you have to realise that most people do not care about their valgus knees, their inactive medial glute and their kyphotic tendencies. As a PT, yes,…

It seems to be human nature to focus on the little things that make no difference, while ignoring the vast areas of life that we can make positive changes to. We stress about being too busy at work, when in reality we could just work a bit smarter or turn up half an hour earlier….

As myths and misconceptions go, the idea that all personal training clients are bored housewives with nothing better to do with their time and money is up there with fat loss pills bought from an ex-Love Island contestant being good for you, and endless treadmill running being the best way to lose fat.
