How To Choose A Great Personal Trainer

How To Choose A Great Personal Trainer

This article has been shaped by what the legendary Dave Tate said a few years back, though the exact words I can’t recall, as well as my own personal experience over the last 10 plus years. Ill also preface it by saying there’s no bias, as I don’t currently personally train people. Also, I won’t refer to a Personal Trainer as a “PT”, as in other countries besides Australia, PT is an acronym for “Physical Therapist”, very similar to physiotherapists and nothing like personal trainers.

You know what questions personal trainers never get asked? “Can I see your qualifications?”. Try it for yourself. Ask any personal trainer you know, if any of their clients have ever actually asked them.

Gut health, Digestion and Performance!

Gut health, Digestion and Performance!

“Gut health”, if not the latest buzz word in the diet industry, it’s the next. Despite this, it’s not new. Many smarter and better looking people than I – my coach Martyn Girvan, the Mountain Dog John Meadows and Hawthorn Hawks dietician Simone Austin to name a few that I’ve conversed with and been influenced by, have been singing its praises for years.

We are made of cells, and our food must be broken down before our cells can utilise the nutrients that make them. This break down is caused by digestive enzymes – the back bone of gut health. We all have to eat and what we eat has to be broken before it can be utilised, why not make the process as effective and efficient as possible?Continue Reading
