I don’t see my kids on a Monday

I mentioned in yesterday’s blog that I spend my Thursdays in Bakewell. And that I only have time for half a day’s work. But it’s ok as I do 15 hours plus on a normal Monday. In for about 5.40am, usually leave a little before 9pm. Sure, I’ll have lunch in that time. And a…

I always have these with me

If you’ve read these blogs for a while (and, if you haven’t, boy have you missed out) then you may know I spend my Thursdays in Bakewell. My two oldest sons go to school over there. They have half the week with me in Macc, but were born over there, their mum still lives there,…

Lee can go t̶h̶e̶ ̶b̶a̶l̶l̶ Airkix

I was talking to Lee, one of our ninjas the other day. Lee doesn’t “really get hangovers” which makes me rather angry, but I can suppress that when talking to him. Lee and his wife Emma have done great since joining us early last year. ————– BTW Lee had been reading these blogs for three…

Take the ear plugs out?

  Most people in our industry do the equivalent of shout at you.   You only hear from them occasionally and then the message is full on.   It’s talking about cutting out food groups.   Major changes to your way of eating.   Full on exercise routines.   Usually massive, unmaintainable (and, therefore, often…

Look after the pennies and the pounds look after themselves

  Who else’s Granny used to say that?   “Look after the pennies and the pounds look after themselves”   I know mine did.   Along with “Waste not, want not”.   And other similar proverbs.   Makes sense.   Although nowadays it’s perhaps more of a case of look after the pounds and the…

There’s no trust

  One of the main reason we do these daily blogs is to help develop ‘Know, Like and Trust’ with people who might be interested in what we do down here.   We realise that most FitPros are quite off putting to the vast majority of the population.   They have this expectation of super…

I’d fallen a month behind :(

  One of my ‘things’ for this year is a series of books I’m doing for my four kids.   “365 things I love about Oli / Izzie / Jamie / Charlie”   As you can see from the picture, I write something I love about each of them in their book each day.  …
