Ok – you’ve started a new fitness kick. It’s going great. But now your PT has told you to “up your protein intake”… The “why” isn’t what we’re going to get into here (let’s just say recovery, muscle growth/retention and feeling satisfied after a meal are the basic reasons), it’s the HOW and the WHAT….

The chances are you’ve said, at some point, “my problem is “. If you PT people for a living, you’ll hear that phrase, or a variation of it, daily or weekly. Most commonly, it’s “my problem is I just can’t eat one biscuit, I have to finish the pack“. Or, “my problem is, if I…

Contributed by Tim Wheatcroft Eating can be expensive. Every time we go to the supermarket it can seem like we’re getting less for our money. Supermarkets don’t want you to eat healthily. They don’t care how you eat. They don’t care about obesity and they certainly don’t care if your food bill is draining you…

Contributed by Tim Wheatcroft   Traditional approaches to weight loss can be misleading. Everyone likes to demonise one food group, and this misconception can spread very easily. “Fats make you fat” and “Sugar is the enemy” are the main two culprits.  Behind these approaches is often what is preventing you from losing weight and keeping…

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.
