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 Bootea being good for you, and endless treadmill running being the best way to lose fat. In short, it’s (let’s go all topical) fake news.  …

When we set up the RWF Gym six months ago, we were very conscious that we were taking a very successful personal training business into a whole new arena. I’d personally spent nearly 8 years setting up a company that encouraged all walks of life to accept that personal training, and getting stronger, was for…

So, we’ve had the RWF Gym for nearly four months now. And we’ve learned a LOT. Most of it good, and a lot of it relating to strategic timing of coffee to keep you alert over 15hr days… Things have gone better than expected. We’ve signed up a big chunk of the members towards our…

Contributed by Tim Wheatcroft   You’ve decided you want to get fit, improve your training, lose weight – whatever your goal is.

Contributed by Tim Wheatcroft   As personal trainers, do we want you to pay for personal training sessions for the rest of your life and be entirely dependent on 1-to-1 sessions? NO!     We can’t speak for most other personal trainers (well, actually we could but it wouldn’t be very professional) but at Real…

Our weekly round-up of articles we’ve found useful and interesting. Well, I say weekly but I’ve been INCREDIBLY slack and not done one for ages. This week’s theme is a bit ranty – promise we’ll find and share some decent technical articles for next time. Thanks to all the writers and creators of these articles…

The PT profession gets a lot of stick – and in many cases, rightly so. We’re often seen as ogres, military-style drill sergeants, and proponents of dietary advice that would make even Gillian McKeith blush. In amongst all of that, though, is a core of decent trainers struggling hard against a tide of, frankly, bullshit….

Contributed by Tim Wheatcroft   This blog is a little bit about what I’ve done since my previous article on my own physical transformation. My experience at the BDFPA National Full Power championships overall was a very, very pleasing one. Check out my video montage of the day: I managed a 175kg squat, 127.5kg (PB) bench press…
