Simplest Ever Weight Loss

Dave Christian Blog

I was having a conversation with a personal training client about the simplest weight loss trick ever.“I’ve tried diets, shakes, supplements and exercise plans but can’t stick to them and always end up gaining more weight” she said sadly.“OK” I replied “why do you think that is?”She thought for a moment and said “I’m not sure. I think its because of my genetics, after all my mum was big too….also I just love my food too much, thats bad right?” This is a conversation I’ve had with so many people. Firstly let me dispel a myth Just because your mum or dad was …

You have to be happy to succeed

You have to be happy to succeed – a lesson taught to my daughter which she reminded me of (video at bottom of page) My daughter only gets her pocket money for doing her household chores – and only if she does them well.Yesterday she tidied the lounge and came to ask me if she could go upstairs for her bath.I was busy washing the dishes and simply said to her “are you happy with your work”I had no-idea if or if not she had tidied at this point. She replied with “are you happy with my work?”Now like I said I …

You’ll Never Amount to Anything

Dave Christian Blog

You’ll never amount to anything”I was once told this by a teacher – to be honest I can’t even remember her name! See I was never particularly academic at school, I’m dyslexic and only manage so well now thanks to the wonder of autocorrect and spell checks! I was however a bit of a class clown and very good with my piers – not much changed their. Exams were always difficult and having to concentrate was an issue.SQUIRRELHence, I guess, why I was told I wasn’t going anywhere in life.Funny thing is though… I’m a stubborn b@stard and things like this make me want …

Effortless Weight Loss

Dave Christian Blog

I was on the normal work/school run this morning taking my wife to the office and kids to school – a daily job before I come home to get cracking with my day..

Just after dropping Lisete off a voice piped up from the back seat.. 

“Where mummy goin?” 

Twas my 2 year old boy (well he’ll be 2 on Thursday) who had just stopped singing “yo-ho, yo-ho a pirates life for me” long enough to realise we’d dropped her off! 

Of course I replied saying mummy’s gone to work

“Where Mia goin?” (his sister) who, I told him was going to school..

“Where My goin?” – you’re going to your school son…

“Where daddy goin” – I’m going to work as well mate

“Daddy doesn’t work” was his response! 

At first I laughed as I can’t actually remember a time I didn’t work – I start around 6am (sometimes earlier) most days and finish around 11pm.

The Best Fitness tip ever…

Dave Christian Blog

Theres a big misconception in the fitness industry  A lie thats been made time after time by instructors, diet companies and even the media who are quite simply after your hard earned money. You all have been spoon fed this and you don’t even realise it.. Quick fixes, magic pills, potions, lotions, creams, gyms, training methods and sadly even my beloved Kettlebells have been dragged into this and I’m sick of it.  We’re told lines like :  “my magic formula” “just drink two (rancid) shakes per day” “this stuff really works”  And honestly they may well do – I’m not doubting it.. …

Stop with the Bullshit

Dave Christian Blog

So yesterday morning at 5:55am I made a video whilst in the park. I called time on the BS we feed ourselves in fitness, health and in nutrition. This is something we’re all guilty of by the way and I apologize in advance if this upsets you but its true. “I’m too tired”“I’m too busy”“I’ve had a long day” “I don’t do mornings” “I had another appointment” “I’ve no money” “I don’t know where to start” Each and everyone of these statements is an excuse to not put the work in and simply put you are not prioritising your health.Which is fine – but don’t make crappy excuses! The fact is either …

A Blog From The Heart

Dave Christian Blog

OK – I’m going to be real straight with you here  I have a sole ambition to help as many people as possible reach their goals and not only that I actually take it personally if anyone doesn’t. I take it more to heart than they do.  See coming into last year with no money, spiralling debt, ill health and depression really didn’t start me off well – In the situation I was in I was in pain and I knew I had to get out of it so I did the only thing I know how to do – …

Dave Christian Blog

4 am this morning was not a time I wanted to get up.It was cold when the alarm went off and poking my feet out from under the covers was a real challenge. Fumbling round in the dark getting dressed and then making my feet work to get down the stairs was somewhat of a challenge but I managed it.Now at 430 having had a high protein breakfast and a coffee I’m ready to…To go out in the cold, the rain and the dark to meet a client who wants to succeed. Now look – I’m not saying you have to get …
