Work smart, not hard

There is no easy way out.

But there is a smart way out. It’s about efficiency not jumping the line or taking the easy way out. Too many people look for the magic pill, the one stop shop, the BEST supplement, or the most food to cut out. I’ve heard all the questions that would go through your mind when you begin this journey. I’m here to tell you that it’s a lot easier to get back to your best self if you trust the basics and simplify the overcomplicated.

So, what’s your point?

This is my point. Know what you’re doing and why you are doing it. Then create a plan and follow it.

Just like when you create a shopping list, going to the supermarket becomes so much easier, faster and saves you money; getting healthy and looking good can do the same for you with a plan in place, created by a professional who practices what they preach.

Then cut out the extras (and there’s always extra work you’re doing that is barely adding any benefit) and spend that time with the people that matter (or even on yourself doing an activity that you enjoy).

But my trainer /family /friend /influencer said that you MUST train 2 hours a day, 5 days a week?

Ask yourself: do you want their lifestyle or just their body? The work they are putting in behind the scenes or just the happiness they seem to have? If you’re looking up to someone that you trust, ask them about their routine to stay active, and if it’s not something you’d like to follow, then maybe take some positives from their advice and find someone else instead who lives the life that you want, and gets the results that you want.

I personally train 3 times a week, for 30 minutes max. In fact, most weeks I’m training once a week for 1 hour.

What’s your secret then?

I used to work hard ONLY. I’ve done a low-fat diet, low-carb diet, intermittent fasting, bodybuilding style workouts, calisthenics training and no workout.

I’ve been in the gym 7 days a week, 5 days a week, 3 days a week and 1 day a week too! The information you have access to, comes from someone who lives a busy lifestyle - hence the name The Lifestyle PT.

As I grew up, my life got busier and busier. I’ve worked the 12-14 hour days. I’ve been on 6 hours of sleep max every day. I’ve had no time to cook a fancy meal but yet want something that tastes good (and I mean restaurant quality) AND gives me the results I want. And for the last 10 years, I’ve set myself two goals: to see my abs every day- of the year, and to be able to perform a front lever and a one leg squat everyday of the year – and I’ve had a 90% success rate for the last 10 years.

10 years of looking good, and feeling good.

With minimal equipment. Nothing but the floor, a pullup bar, some gymnastic rings and very very recently, one adjustable dumbbell.

What does this mean for you? I can help you set up a routine no matter what your lifestyle involves. Whether you are:

·       Travelling,

·       Have nothing but the floor at your disposal,

·       Want to work out on your couch,

·       Work 12 hour days

·       Whether you’re a single mum of 2 kids and have 2 minutes a day (true story, I created a workout for a mum back when I was training clients at Les Mills!)

If you’ve got the grit, I’ve got the plan for you. Exercises have not changed for centuries. What does change, is your lifestyle and accordingly how efficient you have to be – and that’s where I come in.

No matter how busy you are, how injured you think you are, how “old” you think you are, how unfit you think you are – I’ve got something that you can work on, in the time that you have to work on it.
