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.

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 […]

Craving Results: A Game of Two Halves

So this week is another game of two halves…. I went to the gym 3 times last week and stuck to the new Matt regime. The first session with him with all the big exercises still suck, but hey ho, that’s why I go I guess? The second session is a much more pleasant set. The […]

Breaking Matt: Slipping Up

In last week’s blog I promised to step up my efforts gym-wise without slipping up, I failed in this task. In fact I only managed 3 sessions! What’s more I only managed 30km throughout the entire week. Not good. I did train legs though and I managed to fit some deadlifts in, so I was […]

Craving Results: Big Girl Press Ups

Hey, So I’m a day late with this blog (busy day painting yesterday) but I had a good week last week…. Sound the alarms… New work out alert! Matt came through and managed to write a new plan for our sessions because frankly, the old one got pretty stale. Last week I managed 3 sessions […]

Craving Results: Cornwall & Chilli

Hello, it’s me (in case you forgot who me is!). Well, where to start after a 2 week break?! I hope you didn’t miss me too much, but this blog will be jam packed with all the naughty things that I got up to! I’ve had an interesting couple of weeks of up and downs with my […]
