Diet & Strength Training
Are your upper arms similar to this? Maybe they are not as extreme but the loose skin is flabby and you've stopped wearing short sleeves? You can change this. Yes if you have fat already you would need to diet, especially in this case as there is fat, but there isn't very much muscle here either which in turn leads to the sagging skin. 'Bingo Wings' as they are named are not at all flattering but why should you hide away? You don't have to. Really you can change this so easil
So this is a typical example of a lady that probably thinks that she needs to lose weight because she has a saggy butt! But this kind of loose flabby skin can be elsewhere on the body too, thighs, stomach, arms, anywhere. I meet a lot of ladies like this who just keep on dieting, keep on running, keep on stressing, keep on starving and they are doing EXACTLY the opposite of what they should be doing. Typically this body type would be an ECTOMORPH, someone who finds it really
There is a plan for everyone!
This wonderful client came to me having never done any exercise whatsoever. She didn't know anything about food or cooking and was very nervous but realised she had to make radical lifestyle changes. I soon put her at ease and 'broke' her in very gently. Maggie is a true Endomorph so it's very easy for her to put on weight but also build muscle, it's equally easy for Endomorphs to lose weight if they are given the right plan. Maggie fully embraced the training and the food
What's your body type?
Before you start any training and nutrition plan find out what your body type is. There are 3 distinct body types each have their own physical traits, however some people do cross over into 2 types. Here are the basic descriptions of each. Ecomorph: Hard to gain muscle (known as a “hardgainer”) Slender frame Narrow shoulders and hips Narrow chest and abdomen Small bone structure Very fast metabolism Mesomorph: Medium build, rectangular/wedge body shape Wide broad shoulders Fa
Visceral fat is found in the abdominal cavity and it surrounds several vital organs, including the liver, stomach and intestines. Some visceral fat is necessary as it protects our organs however if you have too much it can cause significant health issues. Visceral fat can increase insulin resistance, raise blood pressure, heart attacks and heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, breast cancer, colorectal cancer and Alzheimers to name but a few. Visceral fat cannot been seen
What's your goal?
Believe it or not, not everyone wants to lose weight! However, there's a lot of people out there that are pretty tiny but have fat pockets or loose skin and they tell me they need to lose weight. They don't they are skinny fat....... It might be that they have a baggy belly, loose skin on their thighs, a flat wobbly butt and bingo wings or even moobs if you're a man! In these cases you should actually be eating more, yes that's right MORE! More good food, because what you rea
Ladies that lift!
Started this client on a strip down and a fair bit of HIIT, kettlebells and boxing training and weights to burn fat, 1300 cals and her macro splits were higher on the protein Using my app to track her food and weight and extra sessions to do when I wasn't with her and she knuckled down and did everything I asked. A dream client! Nutrition coaching IS NOT giving someone a few diet guidelines,, nutrition coaching is part of my package and learning what to eat is just as import
Weight lifting not only builds and tones it also gets rid of cellulite and improves the overall appearance of skin. As you know it doesn't matter what size or shape you are anyone can have cellulite. But lifting weights literally melts cellulite away within weeks. Toning your muscles increases the muscle fibres which smooth the skin giving you a much tighter firmer body. So many times I hear women say they need to lose weight because they have 'flabby' bits or cellulite wh

I love balancing macros, I find this works for all of my clients. Depending on your goals, are you building and toning or do you want bigger muscles? Do you need to strip fat? and of course it's completely individual to your weight, fat %, muscle %, height, age, activity levels........ So this infographic is just a snap shot of how you can change those macronutrients to work for you. Of course you don't need to play around with macros but if you've found that you just can't
