Only three miles, as oppose to the usual 15-25, lol. But yukky weather in muddy fields makes it seem longer! Now back home for a healthy lunch and a hot coffee, then a self created hiit workout.... Read more

Not used the app for this stuff for ages. Had a busy few months. New relationship, developing my career, a few temporary fitness/diet lapses. Just lost my focus. But I'm back.... Read more

I have my first two gym client sessions tomorrow. They both say they only want one session each, but that's perfectly ok. Right now I just want the experience of training someone in a full session, not just the taster ones I have so far given. I... Read more
Nutrition course

So I registered for the “exercise to music” level 2 course as I spoke of a bit ago, which will mean I can lead fitness classes, rather than just one to one personal training sessions.

And funnily enough, it's my next door neighbour! Her daughter saw me in my PT hoodie yesterday, asked if I was one, which I obviously confirmed. Then the man of the house came round about an hour ago asking if I could speak to his wife. They ... Read more

Yesterday I took as a rest day, as I haven’t had one for a week, and I wanted to focus on being at the gym as a PT, not for training myself.
 I spoke to two ladies who were training together, and I showed them a few ab moves that didn’t involve ... Read more

I stepped up my game today. Approached four different people and introduced myself. Asked a couple of questions to see what they were looking to achieve, and offered to show them a few things. They were really enthusiastic and I was happy to gi... Read more

I slept really badly last night, it happens. Anyway, I was hoping to get to the gym, do some circuits, then a leg workout. The tiredness really hit ha... Read more
Rest days

Good for two reasons. One - your body absolutely has to have time to completely recover, especially when you are training hard. Muscles only get stronger during rest time, for one thing. But of course thats only one reason we need to rest. And ... Read more
Charity event?

Been thinking about signing up for an event of some kind. Just a random thought that comes to me sporadically. Today I saw a think about the cancer research "race for life" events, so had a look to see if there was anything relevant to me, dis... Read more

Ok, so I've been following two online training programmes, one for building muscle, the other for endurance and burning fat. And hey, they're great. Especially enjoyed the challenge of the endurance/circuit training one. Added a few moves to my... Read more

But apparently that's really common in this industry, especially for first sessions. I get it, she had a couple of nights to mull it over, and maybe lost her enthusiasm to change anything right now. It's such a shame, I really could have helpe... Read more
