How to get better results

If you do a quick Google search and type in 'How to l' you'll get the following suggestions...      Unfortunately the information you'll get is nothing new.      Eat fewer calories than you burn off      But      1. How do you do this properly? Because no doubt you've tried before and presumably by reading this you still want better results      and      2. What if there is a better way, a simpler way?      You see most people add in exercise and reduce calories. So straight away you are requiring more from your body in terms of energy while actually putting in less fuel. Not only that but generally you'll eat very low cal, which is shown to work in the short term. However long term this can cause metabolic damage, an inablity to burn fat even at very low calorie eating.      … [Read more...]

How to lose weight after the summer

fitness in dublin

I think it's safe to say Summer is over :-(      With the kids going back to school it marks the end of their summer holidays and possibly the beginning of a new you? The majority of my clients over the years have been mothers with small children.      In that time I've learned a lot from them because, quite frankly, once you become a mother nothing else matters but your kids. This, however, can lead to you neglecting your own health and body. Soon enough the weight starts creeping on as you never seem to have time for yourself.      My first job with any mother is to help them realise that if they want to lose weight then you need to put themselves first for a change.      This is not selfish at all. Anyone that I've helped has ended up with more energy to put into their day. They … [Read more...]

The Men Who Made Us Fat

Fitness in Dublin

There's been a BBC series running for a few weeks now and last night was the last episode   Basically they implied that big business was responsible for the obesity 'epidemic' and while I agree in part with that we are still in control to make our own decisions   Here are a few interesting points I noted from last nights episode   1. They showed an innocent smoothie and a can of coke   Which is healthier?   Obviously the smoothie   But the smoothie has more calories. Most people would be surprised at that but does that mean a can of coke is healthier?   Hell no, I would argue that an innocent smoothie isn't that healthy because its pasteurised and so all the nutrients get destroyed but a can of coke is certainly far worse   They were simply saying low calories was … [Read more...]

Jeans Challenge

fitness in dublin jeans size

I just received this post via one of my Facebook groups: In 9 weeks time this could be you. Elaine has gone from a size XL bottom to a medium. Just imagine how great you will feel in 9 weeks when you are able to button up a pair of Jeans 1-3 sizes smaller?? How much more comfortable will you feel fitting into suits and skirts that are sizes smaller than you are now? BUT In order for this to happen something must change. Unless you are seeing consistent results now then your current lifestyle is not benefiting your future self. My Jeans Challenge will not only get you sizes smaller, it will make you feel like the real you again and in full control of your weight... So what is it? Starting Thursday 15th March you'll take part in 9 weeks of training combined with a health focused … [Read more...]

Lose Weight Fast | Fitness in Dublin Part 2

fitness in dublin

If you missed part one you can view it here I get paid for results. If I don’t help my clients get results then I don’t get paid. There are a lot of trainers out there who don’t base their training on results though. They end up being a babysitter, making the client exercise or someone for the client to vent their frustrations to. I’ve seen it in the many gyms I have worked in. The training sessions become more of an agony aunt session. Hey I’ve even got caught in that trap and almost left the fitness industry because of it. I do what I do to get results, that’s what drives and motivates me and the sooner a client gets results the better. They become really motivated and tend to work even harder when they see what they are doing is paying off. It’s truly rewarding to watch a client … [Read more...]
