Final set of pull ups ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm happy with them all things considered ๐Ÿ’ช

A common theme that reoccurs in my clients is that training with me is the first time they have actually taken time to focus on themselves. It makes me slightly sad. They focus so much strength and energy on the people they love that their own emotions are neglected. That's why food and wine ๐Ÿท becomes the best friend.
You know on airplanes they say "please put your own mask on before helping others". Well the same should be true in everyday life. As difficult as it is to be selfish sometimes. Priorities your own wellbeing. Health is not something you can take for granted. If you are unwell who will take care of all those people that rely on you?
You will not hurt or lose the people who you care for simply because you choose to do something for yourself. You will not make them suffer or they will not disrespect or hate you for taking care of yourself. In return, you will take care of them better, happier, more energetic and be there for them when they MOST need it.

Day in day out I am blessed to see people do something they never thought possible.
Where my Clients turn to me for motivation, I turn to them for inspiration.

Meet Nicola. Nicola is a bubbly, very very funny and absolutely brilliant lady with cerebral palsy. She has been in a wheelchair since school and her movement is limited... For you and I the gym is simply a tool to get us where we want to be. For her it's a challenge. Every session we are faced with mini little challenges of getting into the equipment, figuring out how to use it, then getting out of it. We take it head on and NAIL it! We #fuckfear and go BEAST mode. Never a complaint, never any winging and always a smile!! She hasn't walked outside the comfort of the house for a while and when she does it's with a little help... UNTIL... I am so proud it is unreal.
If EVER you feel like you can't, or create an excuse to avoid doing something you deep down we both know you can do. Come back to this video and watch this beautiful lady do her thing ๐Ÿ˜‰

I think our body image, the perception of ourselves, the way we should feel, act and behave has been dictated by society so much, that we have forgotten what it is actually like to BE ourselves.
We strive to create an idealistic image of the type of people we are and the lives we lead, and it's very difficult to accept that sometimes you just need to be you.
You need to be flawed, you need to make mistakes, you need to fall, you need to allow yourself to learn and you need to let yourself be YOU.

It is the same with relationships.
#couplegoals has had social media in awe of all these beautiful-seeming people cuddling and doing workouts together on top of a tree with fairy dust. They may indeed be very happy, but I'm sure it has come with their own unique set of hurdles. It is normal and it is OK.
One of my clients pointed out how wonderful we are together and I thought "fuck yes, we'll take over the world!" One day... but in order to do so, we make peace with the fact that if you love someone: you will argue with them, you will hate them, they will piss you off, you will slam the door in their face, you will do everything to make them happy and you will be the happiest you've ever been before โค๏ธ โœŒ๏ธSoppiness over ----------

1 RM - 140kg deadlift @62.5kg bw (7.5kg bw less than my 150kgPR 4 months ago ๐Ÿ™„) . I am happy to report that despite the horrendous curb in my spine, my back is OK!๐Ÿ™Œ #pufferfishface -----------------------------------
Today I want you to fuck the fear.

I've been so overwhelmed lately. Continuously on edge, upset at random times, snappy and irritable with people and simply a massive pain in the cock for those closest to me.
Contrary to common belief PTs don't always have their shit together.

Obviously I'm not going linger and make myself comfortable in this state of being. I've taken a little step back and tried to understand it instead.

Fear. More specifically the fear of the unknown. I catch myself having mini panic attacks over precisely Nothing. I have no idea what will happen in the future and that lack of knowledge, that nothingness in my brain, creates absolute chaos and anxiety.

I've had to remind myself that what truly matters in life is to be happy. To be happy NOW, not tomorrow, next year or when you've lost 20kgs: now. You will never know what happens next so don't let the fear of uncertainty, the unknown, change or anything at all for that matter take the better of you.
Love what you have now. Appreciate what you have accomplished. Work hard to fuck the fear and embrace being simply happy. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

Such a amazing feeling being a coach when your client (friend) smashes here measurements and fitness testing! @kbk89 absolutely amazing effort from you this afternoon once again ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ looking forward to the progress in the coming months!!

Massive shout out to @missshelbyfry absolutely smashed it this morning! Getting this video she even smashed me in the face with the battlerope ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ #Dctotalfit #workout #fitfam #girlswholift #sweaty #weightlose #toneitup #ptreading #ptstudio #ukpt

I have days where I feel on top of the universe, a warrior ready for world domination ๐Ÿ’! Other times I'll diagnose myself with severe depression over my above average sized butt๐Ÿ‘

I scroll through Instagram in envy of these beautiful people with pristine white smiles, indulging in immaculately presented acai, chia, raw, fat free, vegan smoothie bowls and jumping around doing "booty programs". These ladies seem so carefree, "successful" and so simply perfect!
And then there's little old me with my voluptuous hips and burger obsession, constantly hungry and ever so slightly masculine with my 150kg deadlift. ๐Ÿค”

But in the end of the day, I have also been able to capture this picture; edited to shit, giving the impression I live the dream in paradise, sunbathing topless, about to seduce my "#couplegoals " partner.
The truth is we are all human. We will all have days where what we have and what we have worked so hard for doesn't seem quite enough. And that's ok. But know that you are unique and your weirdness and imperfections make you just as (if not more ๐Ÿ˜‰) fabulous.

I'm sorry! I've been quiet. life for in the way of the social media expanssion ๐Ÿ˜‚

These past couple of weeks I've had an influx of people ask for nutrition advice.
The most common questions always begin with: "is it ok to eat [insert food source here] if I'm trying to [insert goal here]?" To which my answer is: I don't actually know. It really seriously depends on what else you are eating. I am a nutritionist but I am not a magician. Unless you tell me your background, your history with eating, what you eat on a regular basis and your daily activity level and give me some body measurements, I will never be able to tell you whether or not that donut went to your butt, your arms, your muscles or used as energy during your grocery shopping.
My point is that I can help. But you need to understand , that you are unique your body will react differently to different amounts of fat, carbs and protein. In order for us to know what and how much you can eat, all the while enjoying life AND achieving your goals, you will need to track.
Track your food!!!! Not because you need to obsess over the number of calories you eat, but because the ONLY way you will know whether you are doing the right thing to get to your goal is by knowing what you're actually doing.
So from this point forth. Write. It. Down.
