The Hunger Scale

This is a really handy tool to understand the ‘how’ part of an individuals intake, as someone that would be happy to eat every minute of every day I found this helpful to distinguish between whether I was an obsessive foodie or a nourishing human. The Scale moves from 1 being the hungriest you have…

Rules out principles in…

Rules are a great way to get people into a good/bad mindset or feeling of guilt more often than not. If you break the rules you’re bad, if you use the principles as a guide then you’ll remain on track. Let’s use the aeroplane analogy to talk training principles, now I’m no pilot but a…

An Exercise in Self-Awareness

The humble food diary is often the battleground between the best version of yourself and the version you would rather not admit too. Several studies over the years have demonstrated that people underestimate their input. The other thing I have found interesting over the journey has been the interpretation of the weekend, sometimes starting on…

Numbers do lie…

  Let’s imagine for a moment, you lose that extra 5kg you’ve been dying to get rid of or you magically overnight wake up the weight you have always wanted to be that majestic number that always eludes you. These quests for such numbers bring with them a big promise because happiness can only be…

Choice Architecture

Choice Architecture Motivation, Inspiration and positive self-talk all have their place and I am a firm believer in their role in assisting us through the confusion and chaos that is inevitable when living, operating and comparing ourselves to others in our daily lives. One of the greatest assets we can create, (an asset defined as…

“I started training with Amy & Sean in 2013, with the motivation to get fit for our wedding and fit into my dress in April 2014. I was always so tired & sluggish & couldnt get through the day without copious amounts of caffeine & just felt awful in my clothes! After my first session I thought I was going to die, but with the help of some encouraging words instead of the old self never returning, I was determined to get fit for the wedding.

 I then began to enjoy exercise! I had fun, looked forward to getting up at 5am & was disappointed if it was ever too wet and cancelled! Now, two months after the wedding, where I felt the most amazing I ever have, looked fantastic & had so many compliments on how fit I look, I am still enjoying training! Amy and Sean's positive attitude is contagious & I can't thank them enough for what they have helped me achieve. They have also inspired me to achieve my new goal of attaining my own PT qualifications & inspiring other people."
