Flash sale on chocolate teapot

As a personal trainer and fitness writer I have been exposed to more than my fair share of scams. You’ve got your Herbalife/Juice+/Aloe Vera shite. You’ve got Cambridge Diets, Detoxes and Cleanses, and your Wraps, fat-burners, and diet pills. All about as much use as a chocolate teapot! They target us on facebook, google, in […]

Breaking Matt: Living the lazy bastard lifestyle

“So Matt how’s that weekly blog post been coming? You forget to publish them or what?” Nope just being a lazy bastard as per usual. Okay that’s a little harsh on myself. I’ve actually been writing like a motherfucker. Last month I wrote around 40 articles and a 20,000 word eBook. Add to that daily […]

No I won’t be buying your Herbalife products

So I have a LinkedIn account and until last year I kind of did nothing with it. But since January 2016 I’ve been more or less active. Adding connections, posting articles, generally keeping myself occupied. But with added connections comes the constant barrage of Herbalife MLMs (Multi-Level-Marketers), if you don’t know who these people are … […]

Uncomfortable truth: God ain’t gonna help you

I am not a religious person, but I was raised Catholic and feel that I absorbed enough of the bible to confidently say that God is not going to personally help you. I’m sorry if this is an uncomfortable truth but nowhere in the Bible does it mention a poor woman with a failing business […]

Craving Results: I’ve got this writer’s block

Happy New Year…(are we still saying this? – I’ll go with it!) I know there’s been a radio silence on this blog again for the best part of a month (though the last one was posted quite late after I wrote it, so I suppose it seems longer to me than it did to you). […]

Improve your fitness with Boxing Training

I’ve been a personal trainer for 7 years, for the most part I focus on fitness and strength & resistance training but when I first qualified it was as a boxing personal trainer. This doesn’t mean I was a coach for boxers, nor does it mean that I was ever a boxer myself – I may […]

Craving Results: Procrastination

Note from Matt: In the spirit of this article I have managed to procrastinate SO HARD that Sam’s blog post that was submitted to me on 20th December hasn’t been put up until today 2nd January. So a lot of her references are pre-Christmas ones (Damn you procrastination!) Hello – I’m back! So, I’ve had […]

Craving Results: How to stay SMART

So this topic has kind of turned into a 2 parter. Following last week’s blog, I ended up having a good conversation with Matt about it during one of our sessions. Needless to say that after the comprehensive list I gave on the subject, Matt was able to point out one glaringly obvious point that […]

Craving Results: How to stay motivated

Public service announcement – this will not be a normal blog… It is also not a how to guide. I’m asking a genuine question (partially for myself to reflect on) – How can you stay motivated when you’re really not feeling it? The nights are really drawing in now. It’s cold, it’s dark and I […]

5 Fitness Tips that you will Never Follow

The more I write for a living, the more I am aware that we are constantly barraged with fitness tips. “5 ways to improve …” or “These fitness hacks will …” or “6 supplements that can transform … “. There is nothing wrong with this at all (I’ve written about 200). But I cannot remember […]
