The world of female strength training has vastly changed since the days of Jane Fonda videos, but many of the old cliches and stereotypes live on. Will I end up looking like a female bodybuilder? Will I have to follow a strange diet? Will I have to train until it hurts? Will there be any…

We’re lucky that we get the chance to work with so many fitness newbies BEFORE they have tried to work it all out for themselves. It gives us a chance to instill all the “stuff that works” before they waste months – or years – and suffer unnecessary injuries working it all out for themselves….

Sometimes it seems the health and fitness world is obsessed with losing weight. Endless diet programs, top ten lists for losing those pounds, low-cal food in every supermarket aisle. And, to be fair, there’s a reason for that: we’re heading towards over 50% of the population being obese. That carries with it some hideous implications…

Honestly – we hear this a lot (and no, the featured pic is NOT our gym!). You’re at your local Pure Gym/Virgin/DL and it’s just too damn busy. But, it’s also convenient – it’s round the corner from work or home, and your work and family commitments mean it’s a struggle to go to a…

That post was written way back in 2015.  We’ve written a huge amount of free content on our website, and we often get an overwhelming amount of people reading the stuff we write – friends, family, gym members, non gym members and sometimes random people from the other end…

Spend your time following “elite coaches” on Instagram and you’d be forgiven for thinking that any average person can go from ‘never trained’ to ‘cover model’ in 8 weeks. Maybe that person inspires you to look around your local area to find someone who can do that for you. Maybe you’re then underwhelmed by the…

Contributed by Matt Stafford How long should my session last? Many people see it as a badge of honour to do a three hour gym session.
