About, Blog, news No Comments

This Video article is our observation of 7 Most annoying things people do in gyms,  I’m also pleased to have my client in the video who helped me to make the the video.

These annoying things happen in just about every gym and fitness facilities, there’s a good chance you’ve seen it too.

Lets get this started….


7. The People Who Never Work Out – You’ll see these people reading a magazine or newspaper while sipping a cup of coffee as they have absolutely zero training productivity.  These people are here for the social scene and prefer not to break a sweat but instead talk the whole time and bother every body else.


6. I’m going to gym but I think I’ll do catwalk – You’ve seen these people working out at the gym in the skimpiest clothes possible they really shouldn’t be.  They’ll wear a sports bra top/vest and it can be distractive, Not to mention most of them wear far too much slap on their face.


5. The Over Functional Training style – People working out with on a stability ball while standing on 1-leg and doing shoulder presses.  He’s trying way too hard and wasting his time.  And the worst part is people who don’t know what they’re doing or are newbies to the gym watch this guy and start copying him because they never seen anybody else doing it.


4. Nudity in The Locker Room – These are the people who are constantly walking around the locker room fully naked and don’t even bother to wear a towel.  You do your best not to look but can not help it sometimes and it makes you never want to shower at the gym again.  You’ll also see these people brushing their teeth naked and blow drying their private parts right in front of you.


3. People never put their weights back –  This may apply to every fitness clubs to a certain point, some clubs are better at policing this rule than others. However the majority of the gyms I been visited over the year have come across this problem, most likely you get the same members who will simply not bother to put away the weights.  So you constantly have to manoeuvre yourself around the gym floor when you are to putting your equipment back. What is most annoying, when you ask a member politely to put their equipment back, they will give you the worst possible reasons like; “It was there already”, “I did’t know I had too”, “I’ll do it after I finish my training”. Well guess what, dear Mr/Mrs PUT THE WEIGHTS BACK right away !


2The Perv Who Likes To Watch – Probably one of the biggest things that scares women off from going to the gym in the male dominated area (Free Weights).  Let’s be honest here, we’ve all seen that guy who does one exercise of bench press and spends the rest of the time sitting around and staring at women.


1. People who Look At Themselves In The Mirror –Look At Themselves In The Mirror Probably the biggest cliche in the fitness industry are these giant ego people who can’t help but look at the extra little growth they’re seeing from pumping a bunch of blood to their muscles.

Recent figures suggests Britain is the fattest nation in Europe. Now there’s talk of the NHS paying for more weight loss operations. According Cancer Research poll in UK estimates that some people alone drink 4,000 calories in the run up to Christmas.

I am writing this as we approach Christmas and a New Year. It’s a time when people often put on weight. But whilst it can be a great time for food, family and fun, I don’t think it should be an excuse to put on weight. After all, lots of turkey or other lean meat and plenty of vegetables are good, not bad, for you. It’s all the extra snacks and particularly the booze that have the “empty” calories. It’s all about choice really. We live a much more sedentary life style now. I was reminded of this when I revisited Georgia.

Exercise is important, but you can’t exercise your way out of an awful diet. You need exercise and nutrition, working together. And talking about nutrition, it’s not just the total calories, but the quality of those calories and how much is protein, carbs and fat. “Fit not thin” is a good mantra and that’s about getting the right exercise and the right nutrition.

I find that many of my clients struggle to find the time to train. This is partly about time management and making use of peak energy.

Harriet Green, a businesswoman in the news recently, was famed for her early morning workouts.

I’m planning to set up a 5am club in the New Year. The idea is, working with a time management expert, to provide real motivation, effective exercises and positive energy.

End of holiday; back to fitness!

Back-to-fitness

I had a great summer time in Budapest. It’s a lovely city and I was impressed with the architecture, cafés and spas. My holiday reminded me how effective bodyweight exercises are for developing strength, power, balance and flexibility. I have included a selection of bodyweight exercises that you could try. Please see below. 

Human Flag Budapes

Here I am, holding a human flag on the famous Chain Bridge, over the Danube. In my opinion, the hardest bodyweight exercise I’ve tried so far.

DNA Fit Premier

I attended development courses on Human DNA testing and its effects on sports performance at The Royal Society of Medicine. 

Todd Durin in London

I also went to the UK’s largest fitness event to pick up the latest fitness training techniques. Here I am with the American trainer, Todd Durkin.

I’ve included a sample of 12 bodywieght exercises, just to give you an idea.

I’m celebrating five years at as fully qualified fitness coach: Here are the five most common mistakes I see people making in the gym:

fitness coach

#1. Nutrition: it is no good exercising hard and eating stupidly.
#2. Boredom: no variety and no motivation
#3. Measurements: not measuring start point and progress
#4. Mismatch: between your goal and exercises you are doing.
#5. Incorrect form: not doing the exercises right, so you are not seeing the benefits.

Are you making any of them? Want to find out? I’m offering a free 30 minute nutrition and fitness review to celebrate my five years.
