Road to PT’ing: Passion Over Profit

e fitness and sporting worlds look very inviting, especially to the youth. No doubt, fitness and sport should have a place in all of our lives in some form or another but for the majority of people that take the pursuit of training, exercise and sport to be a career there will be very little acclaim to their name.

Take the time out of your day to train your body and your mind will follow. Exercise releases brain chemicals that bring about a good mood. With that good mood, you need to attack every difficult situation you experience and day-by-day (God willing) things will change for the better.

Road to PT’ing: Heads Up and Respect the Kettlebell

One of the courses I was really looking forward to this year was the Kettlebell Trainer course which has been called off due to the Nationwide Lockdown, for now anyway. Gyms and ‘non-essential’ businesses have been closed for months and so our eating habits and levels of physical activity have been taking beatings from all angles. In preparation for the Kettlebell Trainer course I’ve been training at home with my own Kettlebells and I’d really like to share with you my thoughts and reasons why you should train with these weights.
