Client Before & After Photos.

 

Great work from one of my clients Giles Murphy over the last 10 weeks!

Just over a stone lighter and 3 inches of his waist!

Giles has been training with me twice a week and doing some of the workouts from my you tube chanel at the weekends.

A lot of the exercises he has done have been simple bodyweight excercises such as push ups, squats, lunges, burpees and plank’s.

And to really elevate Giles’s metabolism and burn body fat I have got him performing intervals on the battle ropes, med ball slams, stair running with a weighted vest and doing short sprints.

Each week I have increased the intensity of the sessions to keep Giles challenged and improve his overall strength and fitness.

Nutrition has involved NO calorie counting, NO points systems, NO avoiding particular food groups and NO powdered drinks.

The key has been drinking lots of water, eating plenty of lean protein, eating lots of vegetables, avoiding refined carbs but at the same time not cutting out carbs from diet all together and keeping sugar consumption as low as possible.

Throughout his training I have taken regular body measurements to track his progress and make sure he is on target to achieve his goals.

The key points to Giles’s success have been COMMITMENT and CONSISTENCY.

In my opinion these are the 2 key areas to achieving your health and fitness goals.

My top health & fitness tips for 2015

 

Harrogate personal trainer Chris Mackay shares his top health and fitness tips for 2015.

 

MINDSET is key. You can have the best exercise and nutrition plan in the world but if your head is not in the right place you won’t stick to the plan and achieve the results you want. Working with a lifestyle coach can help you identify and remove barriers holding you back form becoming leaner.fitter, healthier and happier.

 

THE JOURNEY IS AS IMPORTANT AS THE DESTINATION. You have to enjoy the food you are eating and the type of exercise you are doing otherwise the results you get may be short lived. Too often I see people focusing on  goals, how about enjoying living in the present for a change? Focusing on goals all the time can spoil the journey to becoming leaner, fitter and healthier.

In my opinion eating well and exercising is about a lifestyle, not a quick fix to drop a few pounds after Christmas or a last minute panic to look good on the beach for your summer holiday.

 

BE PATIENT. To make lasting changes to how you look and feel takes time, be patient! In my opinion making small gradual changes to your diet and building up the frequency and intensity of exercise you do will give you the best chance of achieving lasting results.

 

DITCH THE ‘SKINNY ‘ SHAKES & DIET PILLS AND EAT REAL FOOD. I truly believe that diet shakes, pills and powders are not the solution to becoming leaner and healthier.  If what you’ve eaten hasn’t walk, swam, flown or grown out of the ground don’t eat it.

 

TRY NOT TO COMPARE YOUR BODY WITH THE IMAGES OF CELEBRITIES ON THE FRONT COVERS OF MAGAZINES. How about focusing on being the best version of yourself? Judge yourself by your standards.

 

TABATA, TABATA, TABATA! Tabata what!?  Tabata training is my favourite workout of all time. Its short  and effective. The workout is 4 minutes long and involves exercising  intensely for 20 seconds for 8 sets with a 10 second rest  in between each set(see video below for demonstration)

Its short, challenging and works! No gimmicks! Just results.

 

All the best for 2015!

Chris
