You Have 180 Seconds, Can You Do It?

I can’t express enough how important and helpful setting goals are! And I don’t mean the goals where you lay in bed at 3am thinking about how I’m going to turn my life around tomorrow (which we all do anyway).

However, are those goals realistic?

Like can you seriously achieve them? Sitting around thinking all day about what you want to do won’t help you achieve anything in ANY sort of way.

Write it down! Set a out a plan! Where, why and when am I doing this (especially why, then you can really think about why it is you want to do this).

Set mile stones, short AND long term goals, what are the little steps you must take to achieve that big long term goal? What is the purpose? Need with planning your goals? Have you ever set goals using just numbers? No? Then this little game might be just for you! Listen in to Jamie’s game!

The BIGGEST reason you’ll fail this year | Kettering Personal Training

Was This Your Fall Last Year?

How many diets have you tried and you’ve not managed to stick to it or be successful? Be honest. The biggest reason you will fail in weight loss is because you can’t stick to it or once you’ve lost the weight you need, you struggle to maintain that weight and start to gain it. Another big reason is because you’re not moving enough or drinking enough water.

Here are 10 other reasons why water is so good for you and your body will start to love you if you drink it more often:

1. Increases Energy & Relieves Fatigue
Since your brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you think, focus and concentrate better and be more alert. As an added bonus, your energy levels are also boosted!

2. Promotes Weight Loss
Removes by-products of fat, reduces eating intake (by filling up your tummy if consumed prior to meals), reduces hunger (hello natural appetite suppressant!), raises your metabolism and has zero calories!

3. Flushes Out Toxins
Gets rid of waste through sweat and urination which reduces the risk of kidney stones and UTI’s (urinary tract infections).

4. Improves Skin Complexion
Moisturizes your skin, keeps it fresh, soft, glowing and smooth. Gets rid of wrinkles. It’s the best anti-aging treatment around!

5. Maintains Regularity
Aids in digestion as water is essential to digest your food and prevents constipation.

6. Boosts Immune System
A water guzzler is less likely to get sick. And who wouldn’t rather feel healthy the majority of the time? Drinking plenty of water helps fight against flu, cancer and other ailments like heart attacks.

7. Natural Headache Remedy
Helps relieve and prevent headaches (migraines & back pains too!) which are commonly caused by dehydration.

8. Prevents Cramps & Sprains
Proper hydration helps keep joints lubricated and muscles more elastic so joint pain is less likely.

9. Puts You In A Good Mood
When the body is functioning at its best, you will feel great and be happy!

10. Save Money!
Water is FREE! Even if you choose bottled/filtered water, it’s STILL cheaper than that high sugar and fat-filled latte!

10 Ways to Lose 10Ibs In 2018 – Matt Sutton, Body Transformation Expert

Part One - Key Metrics, Working Out Vs In, Importance of Support & MUCH more

Merry be-twixmas! Yep, apparently that’s one of the name’s used for this weird week between Xmas & New Year. And while I’ve seen a lot of people say how boring it is and these days are pointless, I say HELL-NO to that! In my opinion these few days are pivotal and can make or break a great year ahead. These are days that give you time to think about YOU. Your goals & aspirations.

To help you out I will be sharing my top 10 tips over the next few days for people wanting to make 2018 the year they get in the best possible physical & mental shape.

Here we go…

1. Use better metrics to gauge your success

I know, I know. Sounds very counter intuitive to offer 10 ways to lose 10Ibs then tell you NOT to focus on weight loss. BUT stay with me…

One of the biggest misconceptions AND lies that the weight loss industry has sold you, is the idea that WEIGHT LOSS means FAT LOSS. As many LPT members have found out as they have seen their clothes sizes drop.. often the scales hardly move at all.

It’s certainly not rocket science to learn that the KEY contributing factor here is the hard earned lean muscle a person has gained along the way.

Therefore ONE key strategy I urge you to think about in 2018 is the metrics you are using to gauge success. I’m not saying throw away the scales (although you could).

But I do highly recommend far better metrics like; progress pictures, measurements (hip-to-waist ration for females & waist for males) oh yeah and the one everyone forgets…the, “How do I feel scale”.

After all, the whole point of getting healthier is to feel better right? So why not measure that stat?

Lastly, if you really want to understand your TRUE body composition, you can book an ultra-sound Body Scan. This high-tech machine will give you a full print out and over-view of exactly how much body fat you are holding, how much muscle, water, bone density etc. You are even able to get imaging of key parts of the body you would like to see reduced fat.

Scans are £50 and can be done at both LPT Northampton & LPT’s Kettering facility.

Just email [email protected] to book your ultra-sounds scan in.

2. Cut out / minimise processed carbs.

As you know, dieting is an absolute mind field. One day we’re being told to go Vegan. The next day, paleo. I.F. 5:2. And the latest in thing & my personal preference these days is the Ketogenic diet.

What’s crazy is many people DO see great results on these types of diets even though the principles (like eat only meat or eat zero meat) are completely contradictory.

So what gives???

One of the strategies I’ve used to over-come this problem of conflicting advise is to look at where people DO agree.

And one thing all these popular diets CAN agree on, is we should be staying well clear of processed carbs (your cakes, crisps, bagels, muffins, brownies. Basically everything a costa coffee sells as food!). Time & time again its the ONE thing that keeps cropping up. And it’s no coincidence.

Infact LPT’s 30 day reset plan that we will be launching on January 8th is all revolved around finding out which carbohydrates your body IS able to tolerate. We believe this going to be quite revolutionary as it enables the starting point of personalised nutrition.

3. Put as much energy into working IN as to working OUT.

Working out has always been the popular go to choice for improved fitness. In many ways this is rightly so because as a society we don’t move enough. However, just like a car needs refuelling & regular servicing our bodies require adequate regeneration time too in order to perform at its best when working out.

Think of it this way. Working “out” is to expend energy. Working “in” is to deposit energy back into your energy bank.

For a healthy, high performing life these deposits need to come in the form of physical, mental, emotional & spiritual.

Unfortunately though, it’s this re-generation time that has been neglected due to the fast-paced consumerism of tech, social media and shiny objects.

I often refer to it as being stuck in the matrix. When this happens people get so caught up in their own thoughts that they forget whats real and important. Over time this constant, “out-put” wears them out. LPT’s new group Mastering YOU was designed to help people remove themselves from the Matrix and take control of their own destiny better. You can join here for FREE.

[5 Working “IN” Tips]

My big tip for 2018 is quit comparing. Quit trying to keep up with the Jones’s. Instead ask, how can I show up in the world as the BEST version of ME. I’m confident that showing up as the best version of yourself WON’T include scrolling hours of stupid videos on social feed media!

Here are 5 working IN strategies that you can use to regenerate your physical mental, emotional and spiritual energy levels:

  1. Focus your efforts on optimal sleep (sleep recently over-took exercise as priority for weight loss)
  2. Start a meditation practice using an app like Calm or Headspace
  3. Practice diaphragmatic breathing using a breathing drill like box breathing
  4. Journal your thoughts, anxieties & wins each day. I like the 5 minute journal
  5. Take a 3-5 day digital detox this January and record how you feel

4. Get a training partner, PT or join a group

Following my own rejuvenation for training this year I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s IMPOSSIBLE to get great fitness, strength / training results by training on your own.

Humans are built to thrive on tribes FACT. And thats why I believe so many of our members stick with us for so many years. Its not just about the training, it’s about community. It’s about relationships. And the ‘we’re in this together feeling you get.

If you are still trying to do it on your own but not seeing results then check out the P.S in this article as we have something I think you’ll like!

5. Create an Ideal week:

What does YOUR ideal week look like? My guess is you’d find that a tricky question to answer?

Yet what occurred to me recently is how people get really annoyed with themselves for outcomes they’re not happy with. Yet they’ve never actually established what a great week would like!

How to do it..
Your ideal week should include as much detail as possible; your morning routine, your pre-bed routine. training routine. What you eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner. Your day at work. Your interaction with people/family. You can add to it over-time, don’t think you have to complete it all in 10 minutes BUT what it does do is set a fantastic INTENTION.

Are You, “That Person”? | Northants Best Lifestyle Coaching Around

There is a cool reward if you make it to the end...!

Hey People! Here are just a few facts you definitely want to know!

92% of people who set New Year’s Resolutions won’t achieve them.

85% of people don’t like/don’t feel engaged by their job.

70% of households are in debt.

Only 33% of people consider themselves happy.

Sobering thoughts right?

But lets look at the “health” consequences of these life/emotional stats

> 1 in 3 adults are obese

> 26% of women are obese (which is the 2nd highest rate in the world)

> The uk spends 48 Billion dealing  with health & social causes of obesity

> At the current rate by 2030 there will be 11 million more obese adults, 1/2 a million additional cancers and  7 million more cases of diabetes.

Now it wouldn’t be crazy to suggest these two sets of stats are linked

…would it?

So here’s a question for you…

If someone is overweight, unhealthy or has an obesity related food disease,

….is, the root problem REALLY, that they eat too much/does not do  enough exercise?

Sure your Doctor will tell you so, as will the gyms and diet clubs be SUPER eager to in the new year.

My view? HELL NO!!!!!

Before someone can even think about joining a gym, starting a new exercise program OR diet, they need to, FIRST overcome the excess “life baggage”.

Coz lets face it:

…How many depressed people are gonna jump out of bed in the morning raring to go hit the cardio and weights?

…How many people stressed to their eye-balls because they hate their job will stick to a new clean eating plan  of chicken, broccoli and protein shakes?

NONE!

…How many unhappy people are going to continually set new goals that challenge them to grow as a person? NONE!

…How many people in debt are going to enrol in training? (Maybe a few, but not many)

(BTW – There is a point to this mad-ramble)

[ARE YOU “THAT PERSON”]

 

The point is this…..

If you are “that person”, always struggling to be in a place in your life where you are happy and in control of your health, and every time you DO muster up the courage to make a positive start, you focus ALL your attention on how much you are eating and exercising…

(then here’s the message of
today)

….you are in one for one helluva hamster wheel ride my friend.

Coz if the “diet” or “training” program  didn’t work the first time, it sure as hell won’t work the 13th time.

The Answer?

It’s my belief that a far more effective approach is to take a 30,000 foot view of the WHOLE YOU.

I say the “whole you” because too many people unfortunately define themselves by how well they are sticking with their diet & exercise program

whereas those components are just  two tiny pieces of a far bigger puzzle that makes up the whole YOU.

There are so many other pieces of the puzzle that need to be in place for that diet/exercise program to be sustainable. Like:

..Your core values

..Your relationships (internal & external)

..Your beliefs

…Your sleep,

…Your knowledge

…Your ability to manage stressful situations

…Your time-management skills

…Your planning skills

…Your accountability strategies

…Your past conditioning

…Your Limiting beliefs.

You get the point?

So if you feel like you ARE “that person”

OR

are simply a growth-minded person with aspirations to be a better person everyday then today I have an invite.

Alongside our “bit of fun” Merry Maintenance Challenge we are also officially OPENING up our slightly deeper more in-depth group to help ==> MASTER YOU.
