If you’re a frustrated yo-yo dieter and gym disliker who would like to lose 20lbs in 8 weeks while developing lasting healthy habits without having to do boring exercise you hate and give up food you love, then email contact@myrise.co.uk with ‘RISE’ and we’ll send you the information for our online 20lbs weight loss challenges.


You may or may not be aware that we changed the way people join us recently.

From the monthly find out more meeting we used to have.

To an application form and phone call.

Not a salesly thing – just to make sure that person has all the information they need to make an informed decision if the programme is a good fit for them.

And we can, and do, recommended something else if it isn’t.

One question people often ask is “How long are the sessions?”

Or “Are the sessions an hour?”

I explain that they’re “up to 45 minutes”.

“There’s the explanation, warm up, main workout of 20 to 25 minutes then maybe a game or finisher and a cool down and stretch”.

If all that takes 38 minutes, I’ve never felt the need to add extra stuff on to make it up to 45 for the sake of it.

It’s task not time.

Many FitPros sell time.

Hour long sessions for everyone, when that’s not what the majority of their clients want or need.

Because it fits neatly into their schedule.

And “That’s what everyone’s always done”.

If we’ve given it our all for 22 minutes because that’s how the structure of the session works, we’d have to lower the intensity to do it for 30 minutes.

Why would we do that?

If we’ve not given it our all, we’ll get better results by upping the intensity rather than carrying on for longer at that lower intensity.

I’ve trained most days for nearly twenty years straight now and very few of my workouts are a full hour, so why make anyone else’s that for the sake of it.

In most things in life it isn’t the amount of time we spend on things that important.

It’s getting the task done.

A 30 second grab and go lunch that puts us in a calorie deficit……….

Will lead to better weight loss than an hour cooking from scratch that puts us in maintenance or surplus.

A five minute bodyweight workout, stretch or meditation that happens……

Is always more beneficial than the 30, 45 or 60 minute one that doesn’t because we feel we “don’t have time”.

It’s task not time.

Getting anything done as quickly as can be done properly will probably lead us to our best results.

Much love,
