Coaches Struggle with mobility too…

I don’t enjoy mobility. I enjoy what it allows me to do. Not only are full ranges of motion fun AND result in effortless movement AND enable you to try and train for cool tricks BUT mobility sessions can be a form of mediation. Leaning to listen to your body, quieten the noise, breath and learn to engage parts of you that have never engaged before. Welcome to an all new you!

Therapy at a fraction of the cost.

Doing less to achieve more

I hope I provide a lot of information through this blog that’s useful to you guys. This is a subject I’ve posted about before and I’m going to just refresh on it. My stance is the same as it has been for over a year now. I’m going to let other people tell you why that is thought because sometimes it can be refreshing to hear someone else talk about it and frankly I’m not great with words.

He’s a pretty good piece on what we do, we don’t use these guys for programming but what we do at our gym is a GPP (general physical preparedness program).

If you want to get into the nitty gritty of programming (in theory) check this out…



Watch Wednesday

The next chapter in the series of interviews with our coaches. Getting to know who trains you is an important part of building trust. We try to know our members so we can give them the best coaching for them but that only works if they trust us. As usual, montage at the end!

Will upload the full ‘Personal Questions’ video in the coming weeks.


Tasty Tuesday – Week 18!

Ok we’re almost there…this is the last week of adding portions to our meals. At this point we should have the steps in place where eating healthy is a breeze. We have the knowledge and the habits in place to maintain this long term.

We haven’t taken anything away, instead focussing on building the foundations of nutrition by adding good foods in. If we are eating enough consistently we should have squeezed out all the sup-optimal foods. Lunch comes at the halfway point of most people’s work day. We’ve maxed out our low carb phase from bedtime to now, we need to get some starch to feed our brain to maintain our cognitive performance.

Step 18 will replace step 10 so each day we’ve created these habits.

Step 11: Drink 1.5/2 L of H20
Step 2: Adding a healthy fat to breakfast.
Step 12: 1-2 fist-sized portions of vegetables with dinner.
Step 13: 1-2 fist-sized portions of vegetables with lunch.
Step 5: Protein with breakfast
Step 6: 1+ (2max) palm sized portions of animal protein with dinner
Step 17: 2/1 palm size portions of animal protein with lunch
Step 16: 2-3/1-2 cupped handfuls of starch with dinner
Step 15: 2-4/1-2 thumb size portions of a healthy fat with lunch
Step 18: 2-3/1-2 cupped handfuls of starch with lunch
