I’m over 30 so does that mean I’m too old to be healthy?

When you reach 30, you just get old and crotchety and it’s all downhill from then on! Well, that’s what my mother reckons!! Or was it 40? I’m 47 so I may as well book my hospital bed now so the doctors can take care of me when I’m broken! Actually I’m 47 ½! Do […]

Eat biscuits and still lose weight?

We all have weaknesses – don’t we?! Being a Personal Trainer, it’s probably not the best thing to admit my weaknesses! BUT… I’m a real person, not a robot so of course I have my weaknesses. A lot of people in my profession wouldn’t admit to any misdemeanours – they are just perfect role models. […]

The results are in…Losing weight is still your number one issue!

Last week, I sent out a survey and the response was great. Thank you to those who responded – if it weren’t for you then I’d never know what you want me to provide. The results were very interesting – here they are by percentages. Some questions had more than one answer, hence the larger […]

Would you buy from these guys?

Every now and then I do my parents a favour. Well, it’s only fair as they brought me up to be a very nice, intelligent person, ha! It’s generally my mother who asks for the favours as she’s the talkative one! Anyway, as they don’t own a computer (yet), she asked me to bring my […]

You hear of low-fat, low-carb, cabbage soup, Atkins, Dukan, blah-blah diet etc! Wow, how confusing must it be to choose the […]

Are you hiding from exercise?

You can run but you can’t hide!! Well actually, you won’t even find any running here! I like this quote – you need a bit of humour in your life at times. As a fitness professional, I have to encourage exercise in people’s lives on a serious level simply because exercise is crucial to good […]

NEVER eat these 5 foods before you go to bed…

I must admit that, because of my working hours, I often eat quite late and on the odd occasion, I do eat a bit of chocolate or have something spicy. Hey, I’m human and I have the odd slip up! As most of my classes are in the evenings, eating late can become a bad […]

Wish me luck…

I’m so glad to have you along. After all, it’s a journey. What am I talking about, I hear you say? Well, the journey refers to both of us. My business journey, which started in February 2010, and is hoping to gather pace in the near future; and your journey, which starts when you decide […]

An inspiring weight loss journey…

Today I want to let Awne (my partner) tell her weight loss story. Be inspired, face your fears and take action. I haven’t been overweight so I can’t tell a story but I can empathise and provide a service that will help you. Take it away Awne: “For anyone worrying about starting one of Paul’s […]

Do you suffer from heartburn or acid reflux?

Oh I love a good curry – not too spicy mind as I think too much spice can mask the real taste. But unfortunately for me, having a curry can have a negative knock-on effect. My favourite curry has to be Chicken Bhuna. It’s quite mild and because of the tomato base, it suits my […]
