My training and dietary philosophy is based on how different types of food make you feel, as an individual, and how your body reacts to different food sources. My philosophy doesn’t follow any one system, I simply believe we must eat food for the positive benefits it provides us and therefore makes us feel good internally and externally. I look at all dietary systems as tools, use them all as and when needed to benefit ones health.
My philosophy also considers the food groups which, whilst eating in the moment may taste good, but the after effect leaves you feeling lethargic and typically bloated. These negative outcomes are usually ignored by many and the body gradually adapts to these negative symptoms. I believe it is important to investigate and treat these symptoms, with gradual changes to address the root cause of pain, bloating or any other signs of discomfort.
Through my own experience of experimenting with various diets and training styles, I have come to the conclusion that everything in life is simple, but only once you have a complete over-standing of a particular subject. Situations where significant evidence and thus knowledge is required, only become difficult when you lack the knowledge of that particular subject area. My aim, as a coach, is to help others achieve a knowledge base of physical well-being via altering training methods and nutritional lifestyle. With such knowledge, I hope to empower my clients with the fundamental knowledge to help them along their own journey.
My approach to training is simple once again, training should be fun, challenging, inspiring and beneficial to everyday life, movement and agility. Likewise, the same concept applies to eating, whereby eating should be enjoyable, energising and simple.
Within the fitness industry, some people are attracted to the idea of training because of short term goals such as ‘getting ripped quick’ or ‘losing a few stones’. For some, such goals can be achieved, however these transformations are in no way sustainable and can even by detrimental to long term health. Focusing solely on aesthetics will somewhere along the line jeopardise your health by taking quick shortcuts instead of adjusting your training methods and dietary over time. Focusing on health first with the use of personalised, effective and programmed training and nutritional guidance will inevitably result in outstanding aesthetic outcomes. A healthy internal body will positively reflect externally and vice versa.
My philosophy signifies a long term lifestyle change that is manageable, sustainable and most importantly enjoyable!
