It made us late for school

  I’ve mentioned before (and members will, of course, know) that I do a daily video in our members’ only Facebook group.   A week each per month covering the areas of Lifestyle, Exercise, Adherence and Nutrition (our LEAN System, innit).   ————— It’s www.theacademygtc.co.uk/briefing-meeting to take the next step to find out more about…

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.  …

I wasted half the apples

  Those of you that have me as a Facebook friend may have noticed that one of my goals for this year is to make 40+ new meals / recipes.   One I did a month or so back was a variation on an apple crumble.   I chose that as my mum has bought…

There’s not many six packs?

  We had a comment on one of our before and after pics recently.   “There’s not many six packs?”   A quick check of his profile showed him to be a local FitPro.   A FitSemiPro if the amount of success stories on his page is a reflection on his income I suppose.  …

52% > 48%

  I’m sure you may have noticed that a little thing called Brexit is going on at the moment.   After a referendum 2 1/2 years ago in which 52% of the voters picked ‘leave’ versus the 48% the picked ‘remain’.   How a voting system works.   The ‘thing’ that gets the most votes…

It took three minutes longer

  It was recently the Christmas Fayre at my step-daughter’s school.   My wife is one of the volunteer parents that helps organise it.   Amongst other things this year people were keen on freshening up the Santa’s grotto.   Alex (the wife – I only call her ‘the’ wife as it annoys her) fancied…
