The hardest part of change | RISE Macclesfield | Group Personal Training gym weight loss programmes

A final little “lightbulb” moment I got from Tuesday’s in person seminar with the UK’s leading Emotional Eating Coach is what “the hardest part of change” is. Not doing what you did yesterday. It’s that first rep. That’s the hardest one. Each subsequent one gets, on average, a little easier. Not massively so rep by…

Stop blaming your emotions | RISE Macclesfield | Group Personal Training gym weight loss programmes

I talked yesterday about last Tuesday’s in person seminar at RISE with the UK’s leading Emotional Eating Coach. A second thing that really jumped out at me was the slide you can see if you’re reading this online. “Stop blaming your emotions” I’ve talked many times before about how some emotions ‘get a bad name’.…

They spend more using it than for Alzheimer’s research | RISE Macclesfield | Group Personal Training gym weight loss programmes

This last Tuesday we had the UK’s leading Emotional Eating Coach Chris Tibbets in for his second in person seminar for our members. It’s up on the Resources tab on the app (under ‘More’) for those of you that are members – and, for those that aren’t, this is one of the many things we…

“Do I have to speak to you on the phone?” | RISE Macclesfield | Group Personal Training gym weight loss programmes

I mentioned yesterday that our application process involves me having a chat with people on the phone. It’s not salesly. There’s no pressure. We just look at what someone is wanting to achieve. What they’ve tried before and why that may, or may not, have worked. If we both decide we’re a good fit for…

The only two times your gym calls you | RISE Macclesfield | Group Personal Training gym weight loss programmes

When people are interested in what we do, I normally arrange a chat on the phone with them. I’ll cover tomorrow why I don’t just send them all the info on email and an “Join here” link. If they decide to get involved, I book them in for their first Session, get them set up…

Doc Brown knew the score | RISE Macclesfield | Group Personal Training gym weight loss programmes

Who likes the Back To The Future film trilogy? I know I do! If, somehow, you’re not aware of them, the three films chronicle the adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Emmet Brown as they use the DeLorean Time Machine Doc Brown has invented to travel from 1985 to 1955 to 1985 to 2015 to…

“No one ever gets full value from us” [“It’s not a real thing”] | RISE Macclesfield | Group Personal Training gym weight loss programmes

If you’ve read these blogs for any length of time (and, if you haven’t where have you been?) then you’ll know that many are inspired by conversations with people. Often similar things being expressed or asked a few times in a row. The other day I had a few newer members express they weren’t sure…

The two biggest return on investment activities you can do | RISE Macclesfield | Group Personal Training gym weight loss programmes

One of the things that often holds us back when we try and make changes to our bodies, health, fitness and mood………….. Is that we often try and make quite a few rather large changes at the same time. Doesn’t mean they wouldn’t benefit us if we continued with them. But, I’m sure you’ll know…

It’s like saying don’t eat [Is comparison the thief of joy?] | RISE Macclesfield | Group Personal Training gym weight loss programmes

Have you ever heard that “Comparison is the their of joy”? Or that “you should never compare yourself to other people”? Sounds valid, no? How’s that worked out for you? Have you not compared yourself to anyone since then? I thought not. Ain’t gonna happen, is it? Us humans function on making comparisons. All day,…

It doesn’t cost 50p any more | RISE Macclesfield | Group Personal Training gym weight loss programmes

My youngest son was doing his reading the other day. In the car on the way to school with my wife as I drove. Sub-optimal parenting, I know! He got stuck on one word. And, as he does, kept repeating the words before it to, I presume, try and help him decipher that next word.…
