I know I’ve said it many times, but you can’t have lasting health and fitness without looking at your diet. I’ve been banging the drum for years and I’ll never get sick of saying it; nutrition has to be intrinsically linked to your exercise to achieve the results you want to see.
Thank you for checking out my new series 50 club Friday, you are going to love this beast of a workout! Every week I will doing a new session wIth one of my team or other fitness professionals.
It sounds incredible to say this but, as I write this, I have been a physical trainer now for 11 years and I have been specialising in online training for 5 of those years. It’s been an amazing time for me professionally and personally.
“What you put in, is what you get out”. It’s a saying that gets used for all manner of scenarios, but when it comes to gym results, it’s more true than ever. Let’s be clear. There are no shortcuts to improved health and fitness. There’s no magic wand but there’s also no getting around it. The work and effort you get out is intrinsically linked to the amount of work and effort you put in.
The women and men who are in great shape and people put it down to luck or genetics nearly always have an active lifestyle with consistency of healthy eating and exercise over years. Not months.
I’m going to be honest with you here my body fat levels vary throughout the year, I don’t always sit at 10% or less but I’ll let you into a secret. That’s totally normal!!
Food and nutrition can be an incredibly daunting experience, especially if you’re new to it. If you’ve struggled to design your own meals in the past, then give it another go or look into getting someone to help you with this. It is tricky and takes some time to figure it out, but you can do it!
Each year the training becomes less of a priority to me as other things require more focus and energy. My nutrition gets more flexible and stricter at the same time. Meaning I eat healthy a lot more often but worry less about deviations from this.
Regardless of whether you’re wanting to become an adonis, toned to perfection, or looking to bulk up for a strength event or personal reasons, muscle is going to be a key aspect of your physical exercise. For many people though, try as they might, their muscle size may not be developing or growing at the rate they wish.
