We're About To Launch

Over the last few weeks we've been gearing up to the launch of our new clothing line.  It's a new challenge for us, and like many things in life, whether you're preparing for your fitness goals or otherwise, it's key to make sure everything is in order.

We've checked every detail, and set clear goals, and the culmination of all of this hard work was our photoshoot.  It was the final piece in the puzzle, and now we can safely say we're ready.  It's great feeling to be able to look back and recall the 'idea' of launching our own clothing range, and to now be days away from seeing our store go live. It gives us a wonderful sense of achievement.

Much like training, if you set a clear objective, and prepare yourself for the success of achieving your goals, you'll experience that kind of feeling as well.

What Is The Correct Percentage Between Fitness + Nutrition?

This is a question and debate that has divided opinion over the years.  I often hear people say ‘..the key to losing weight is 70% nutrition 30% fitness..’ or ’..50% fitness and 50% nutrition..’

Well I disagree with both. Its 100% commitment to fitness and nutrition. You must be 100% Committed, and most importantly Consistent in both fitness and nutrition. If you focus on one more than the other you will still see results, but at a much slower rate. 

If you were to dedicate yourself 100% to both fitness and nutrition, your success rate would be much higher and quicker, helping you to achieve your goals, and also programming you mentally to be able to maintain them.

Several people I know moan and complain it’s hard to be 100% consistent to fitness and nutrition, but is it really? If you plan and prepare, and use common sense it may not be as hard as it seems. You may actually find that planning your meals and workouts ahead of schedule to ensure you can get your workout in can be hugely beneficial. 

Instead of pressing that snooze button, get up a little earlier to make sure you get a good heathy breakfast in, get your healthy lunch and snacks made ready for you to take to work.  If you prefer to train in the mornings, prepare things the night before, then use your mornings to do your workout. 

Stop being lazy get out your bed and start your day as you intend to go on. A famous quote that I will always stand by is this ‘..fail to prepare, prepare to fail..’

Nothing comes easy. The focus and drive to maintain your consistency must be relentless. Things will come up like birthdays, special occasions, celebrations and sick days, but when you really want to achieve something, especially something you may never have had, or if you’re trying to get back to a certain fitness level, there can be NO DAYS OFF and NO EXCUSES.

Make sure this is not you!! 

If you’re reading this, it means you want to change something. I believe you can do it, and you need to believe in yourself too. So, take this advice and be 100% committed and consistent in your fitness and nutrition, and watch how quickly your goals are achieved.
