In my lifetime, I have seen ALL the ‘trends’ come and go. I have seen the industry grow into a giant, and I mean both the diet and fitness industries combined and more recently, the self-help business. You would have thought that with all this at our fingertips, we would be the fittest and slimmest and most positive generation in human history. But we are not!
Throughout the years, I have seen people grow fatter, less content with life, and alarmingly, it is starting from a much earlier age these days too. So what the f**k is going on?
Modern life does not suit us it’s that simple. For one thing, we are built to do things like move! When we move, our bodies react to it. Our minds react to it. Our attitude changes, our mood improves and our confidence improves. Unfortunately, modern life has also determined how we do that. We are encouraged to go to a gym, a class or go on a diet!
I have owned my own gym, managed big leisure and fitness facilities around the world. Coached for over 35 years, had personal training clients from pensioners to pop stars. Yes, I have been part of all that, I know how the industry works. I know what actually gets you results and, more importantly, what doesn’t.
My mission now is to show you a different way. A better way. One which is sustainable and life-changing. One which is easy to do and easy to implement into your current lifestyle. I simply call it ‘FIVE LIFE CLUB’.
I’m a Fitness coach, NLP Practitioner and Author. I love taking people from beginners to motivated movers, no matter how busy their life has become!
Like most of you reading this, life has thrown me some curveballs! The ups and downs of marriage, divorce, deaths, money problems, career, midlife crisis and so on, have one way or another past my way. I believe that having a healthy mind & body helped me through those bad times and appreciate the good times more. I Have had the career, brought up a family and conformed to life as I knew it then.
At the age of 40 something, I sold my house, business and belongings and set off with a backpack. Travelling the world for a while and settling in New Zealand. During this time of my life, I started to think a little differently about things, in particular, the industry I had been a firm advocate of for so many years.
I started to develop a different way of staying active, of dealing with life and keeping the growing waistline at bay. Sharing with my clients, all busy women, no matter what age, ability or circumstance. I quickly saw the cool changes they were making to their busy lives.
Now a Grandad, back in the UK and 60, I’m still doing it that way and now I’m sharing it with you.
