This time of year, everyone’s on a diet. Even the ones who aren’t, are out to lose that little extra they put on from a diet consisting of leftovers and excess wine since Xmas Day. So how do most people measure that progress? Usually, the first port of call is the bathroom scales. Never be scared…

I asked for some ideas for blog posts, and the issue of supplements came up a couple of times. I realised we’ve only really touched on it before and never gone into any real detail. It’s a minefield – not only because of the sheer amount of stuff out there, but also the difficulties of…

For many people, training and fat loss/muscle gain is important to them. However, it’s not important to the point that they will completely abstain from drinking going out and socialising – and rightly or wrongly, socialising often involves alcohol. Alcohol and training are a bad mix, for the most part. Let’s assume none of you…

If you’re just starting out in the gym, you’ve probably ended up there after reading magazines, going on websites and chatting to friends who already exercise. In amongst all that noise, you might have found some nuggets of gold to get you started. But I bet they’re buried under a mountain of BS, ego and…

  What is it? This basic guide was created, along with the training element, in less than an hour – including the time taken to decide to do it. The idea is NOT that it’s perfect, or even innovative (although, followed to the letter, most would probably get pretty good results) – but to show…

This is the story of one of RWF’s PTs, Tim Wheatcroft. He’s been open and honest here, because, like me, he’s sick of seeing so-called reputable companies and PTs promising the world to people in 6,8 or 12 weeks. This is the change we’re talking about: This sort of story, and the timescales and challenges…

I’m not that much of a bah-humbug guy, but I did refuse to even consider a post like this until December had at least begun. And seeing as though I’m being forced to put up a Christmas tree on Sunday, I realised I couldn’t fight the tide for ever. This isn’t going to be about…

I purposely never put clients on restrictive diets, unless they are the kind of person that actually enjoys routine and restriction (some do, believe it or not!). For the rest of us, it’ll never work long term. Adults don’t do well with rules. Very restrictive diets are the kind of thing you can use as an…

In this day and age, with access to more cheap, nutritious food than ever before, the health and fitness lie that eating well costs more than eating junk, is just, well, a myth. Of course, it’s possible to go to extremes. Only eating grass-fed bison, milk direct from the farm, Himalayan pink salt, vegetables only…

Let’s get straight into this, because these are the most common myths I have to dispel with new clients when I first try to get them eating a little better: 1. Most cereals (let’s name Special K and Fruit’n’Fibre as chief villains) The vast majority of cereals contain a huge amount of sugar. Special K,…
