Be patient

Are you stepping on the scales after every gym session? Please, please be realistic.  Results take time, they take patience, and they take a lot of perseverance.  If it was that easy everyone would do it!!!!   Time and time again I hear people having unrealistic time frames when it comes to their goals.  Maybe…

I can’t stop peeing!!!!

Sometimes my clients look at me like I am insane….’drink water like your life depends on it,’ is what they get told.  Yes you will pee for England, but water is fundamental for everything you do every day!!!   When I say drink water like your life depends on it, I really do mean it,…

Sleepy head…

Are you getting enough sleep?  If you aren’t then you could be holding onto those extra pounds that you have been trying so desperately to shift.  The problem we have when we are sleep deprived, is the stress that comes with it.  Feeling tired and having to cope with children, a heavy workload or daily…

J Lo Booty

After a conversation with a client yesterday, todays blog post it about ‘butts,’ or least working on our butts.  Are you happy with your behind?  So many people I speak to aren’t happy, they want a bigger, fuller, more toned bottom, or, as my clients called it today, a ‘J-Lo butt.’   The problem with…

Starving hell!!!

Starvation diets are something that have become so popular recently, and unfortunately most people dont seem to realise the damage that they can cause.  Personally I love to eat, and working out lots means you should eat more…not less.  Most of us get that in order to lose weight a calorie deficit needs to be…

Its A Secret…

Yesterday was the first day of the new Excel Fitness Members only secret support group,  a page designed for all clients to share their worries, experiences, menu ideas, or whatever is on their minds.   Not everyone wants their fitness journey to be in the lime light, they may not want anyone to know they…

Diet disasters!!

I don’t really like to use the word ‘diet.’  My clients are encouraged to make healthy food choices, lifestyle changes that can be implemented and that are realistic.  That’s not to say that there won’t be times when an ‘unhealthy’ choice might be made, but its about being realistic.   Things that really worry me…

Injury Proof

It doesn’t matter whether you are new to fitness or have been at it for years, everyone can be at risk of injuring themselves, and this can then put us out for weeks, months, even years depending on the injury.  So whilst we can never prevent injury completely, there are certainly a few things we…

Weekend warriors

For me Saturdays are my ‘rest’ day, the start of the weekend, the only day I don’t have to get up and leave the house for the school run or a PT session, don’t get me wrong, I still have things to do, today consisted of blitzing the kitchen ready for Christmas, (a workout in…

HIIT me up

After a week of lots of HIIT, (high intensity interval training) with some of my clients, i saw the look on one ladies face as we finished the session, it was a look mixed with exhaustion, (from the workout), happiness, (from finishing the workout) and confusion….(the kind of confusion that asks why the hell have I just…
