The other day, my colleague Tim and I were chatting about our client lists. We realised that between us, we train 34 (yep, 34) clients that are over 40yrs old. Luckily, a few of them are folk in their 60s, who refer to “you young’uns” enough for me to believe I’m still one (at 42),…

One of the first things we ask a new client at their consultation is “why are you here?” It cuts straight to the point. It shows that we want to help someone with a goal, and it often makes someone think a little more about the specifics. We’ve had some interesting answers to that question….

Did you know that Cristiano Ronaldo uses Herbalife? He does – just look: It’s annoying, really, because the Herbalife idiots always pull it out. If one of the best footballers the world has ever seen uses it, how dare you, a dumb PT, say it’s a rubbish product? Bugger. That stumps a lot of arguments….

I fear my title may have given away my stance on this issue too soon. But please, if you have the merest interest in debate rather than “la-la-la-I’m-not-listening-you-bigot”, read on a little. Social media discussions over the last few days were sparked after a popular daytime TV show ran this story: Will you allow me…

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   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…

I have a confession to make: I don’t like rugby.     I’ve tried and tried, but I just can’t do it. Now, this doesn’t make sense. I like team sports. I like physical sports, I like contact and *ahem* controlled violence. I even like close contact with another man’s pelvic area….well, maybe that’s a…

This is a guest post from Charlotte Hughes (Instagram here), who’s gone from treadmill-and-bodypump, to standing on stage in the UKBFF Bikini Class, to competing at the BDFPA Powerlifting National Championships in the space of just 4 years. And so the journey begins I took 2nd. My first ever Powerlifting competition and I came in…

Well, after the roaring success of my first meet last September in which I qualified for the BDFPA nationals, I had a second meet yesterday – the West Midlands last-minute qualifier. It wasn’t a competition I needed to do, but the idea was to get some more experience before going to the Nationals. Well, I…

The online fitness community often likes to brag about training at frankly hideous times of day. And we get it: there IS a certain smugness to having gone for a run, or done a hard leg session, before most people are out of bed. Often though, people are made to feel less adequate because they…
