Free fitness, nutrition and lifestyle tips
No excuses, only results...
After 10 years of training clients to live happier, healthier, stronger and more fulfilled, I know exactly what it takes to make a real lasting change and one thing I know for sure is that it has to begin with YOU taking that first step.
I'm not here to demonise you but I will help to show you where you may have been going wrong before, and motivate you to start taking full control of your health, fitness and nutrition with the right educate, tools and support.
To achieve long lasting results, you not only need to take action and commit to the process but also most importantly, change things one small step at a time - it always comes down to trial and error.
For instance we know that extreme dieting doesn't work (because let's be honest, who doesn't love junk food, watching TV and being lazy as possible every now and then!), just like juice cleanses and detox's. Therefore you must exclude these from your weight loss plan if you are to be successful.
I'll say it again, the key to your success is making one small change at a time.
Going from Lemonade to light lemonade. To flavoured water. Fruit infused water and finally to plain water.
Going from a large pizza, to a medium, to a small. Eventually swapping the small pizza for a burger which is higher in protein and slightly less calories.
I could go on to give you hundreds of examples but hopefully you get the idea?
By using this approach you not only reduce the risk of failure, binge eating and negative thought patterns but you also learn key skills for success in life - small changes lead to big results...WIN WIN!
I teach all of this in my Weight Loss With Mike program, designed for people that may be overweight, unhappy and lacking in confidence. It's perfect for people who don't know where to start and need more control around food and finally, for people who need the support and accountability from a friendly and knowledgable, personal trainer like myself.
It pains me to see so many people struggle with the feeling of being nervous of exercise and eventually not start at all, and a piece of me feels like the fitness industry might just be part of the blame for this.
The internet and especially social media is full of unqualified people giving out poor, conflicting advice.
'Influencers' and wannabes taking nothing but pictures of their semi naked bodies and making the rest of us feel that little bit more insecure, I mean let's be honest, these things aren't helpful to anyone so the more you can stay away and switch off from these people the better.
Weight loss should never be based on starvation diets, punishing exercise or miserable workouts that you dread each week. ‘Weight loss with Mike’, is about building strength, courage and confidence. It’s my mission to make sure you finish each workout with a spring in your step, as you feel yourself making real progress that will last for life.
Your weight loss journey is unique, and even if you haven’t exercised for years, I will be here to guide you through the program every step of the way. I love training, and my infectious personality will keep you motivated even when you don’t feel like it!
