    Staying Focused - rb5 Personal Training Nottingham

    Staying
    Focused
    How do you focus when you are constantly distracted, constantly have people, places and problems pulling at your attention? Simple answer is you can’t. It’s hard to keep on track if you don’t actually have a track to follow. There’s never going to be that moment where the stars align and the heavens shine down and light the way; a voice from above isn’t going to call out to tell you when, you just have to go for it. If you believe, if you have 100% conviction, if you have the determination and drive, you’ll get there no matter what the target is. There will never be the perfect time to do anything. There ....

    You’re not there yet and that’s
    OK
    .

    There are so many different reasons people go to the gym and there are so many different levels of fitness or strength or knowledge. It’s OKto be different. It’s OKto want to train for a different reason than your friend or training partner. We all follow different programmes and all have different goals. What we fail to remember sometimes is that not everyone is super strong or super fast or super lean and that it’s OKto differ. There are a lot of benefits to training with a partner or group. There are often people you look up to at the gym and admire for their speed or strength, ....

    How To Be Intolerant


    Wheat, dairy, eggs, strawberries, people walking so slowly in front of you that you want to punch them in the back of their head, all these things have one thing in common – intolerance. Being intolerant to certain foods can make life difficult at times, when you’re out and about and want to grab a quick snack but you have to spend the next 45 minutes scouring the back of every single piece of packaging for the ingredients list to look for the ones “highlighted in bold”. Over time you learn what foods you can or can’t eat, what’s worth the risk and what definitely isn’t! Intolerance is different to an ....

  • October's Member of the Month - rb5 Personal Training Nottingham

    October's Member of the Month -
    Colin Boyd
    Colin joined us at the start of September and has repeatedly worked hard to reach his goal of getting stronger and leaner. He has lost over 3% body fat in just 8 weeks and also increased his muscle size. Colin’s posture has vastly improved, he is much happier with his physique and you can visibly see the results of his hard work. The increase in the weights he’s lifting during his resistance training shows he is gaining in overall strength and due to his bodyweight training he can now comfortably perform full pull ups for the first time. He has not only been consistent inside the gym but also with his ....

    The Incredible Bulk - Rb5 Personal Training Nottingham

    But I don’t want to get bulky… Just by looking at a dumbbell you’re not going suddenly gain muscle mass. The right kind of training, the right kind of diet, even the right kind of genetic make up are all factors in determining how much muscle you can gain and over what time period. Testosterone is a huge player in the Game of Gains. This little bad boy is the secret weapon to muscle growth, and who has more of it, men or women? Yep, we girls will not be able to gain as much muscle as the guys, it’s genetically impossible and only by increasing our testosterone levels can we even begin to compete at the gun show! The only variables you have control over are ....

  • Tone It Up - Rb5 Personal Training Nottingham

    To the tune of ‘I want to break free’ by Queen - “I want to be toned. I want to be toned. I want to tone this body I’m so sick of all the wobbly bits. Oh I want to be toned. Dear trainer, you know I want to be toned!” Hands up everyone who has ever said, “I want to tone up” Ok, now keep those hands up if you actually understand what that really means… So what really is being ‘toned’ and what does it take to achieve this? When people say they want to have that toned look, they often mean they want a lean body with muscle definition. For a lean body you need to lose fat, so you need to be in a calorie deficit. ....

    Set Backs and Steps Forward
    Everyone encounters set backs in their journey through life at some point, your fitness journey is no different. You may face injuries or illness, or simply life events that cannot be avoided. Set backs are not always negative either, maybe you’ve taken time out to raise a family, travel a little, relax and reset. As the great Chumbawamba once said, “I get knocked down, but I get up again. You’re never going to keep me down.” The set back isn’t the issue, it doesn’t matter what barrier you’re facing, the only thing that matters is how you overcome it and move forward. What you need to keep in mind though ....

    Have Your Cake And Eat It - Rb5 Personal Training Nottingham

    Have Your Cake and Eat It! Yep, all ‘12 suggested servings’ of it. The whole damn thing. I love cakes, biscuits, chocolates, all those little sugary treats! People are often surprised and shocked to hear I eat them, why? Because I’m pretty lean. What people fail to realise is that being lean doesn’t mean not eating chocolate bars or slices of cake; being lean means that you can have these things in moderation as long as you work them into your sustainable diet. I hate the word “diet”. When people ask what diet I’m on they always assume it’s some calorie restrictive, carb cutting, anti-sugar warfare. Wrong. Yes, I track my ....

    Why I Love Personal Training - Rb5 Personal Training Nottingham

    Why am I a Personal Trainer?
    How did I end up here? I spent my childhood behind a sewing machine. My mum was always sewing and creating things and I caught the bug. My whole family’s creative and growing up there was always something to make whether it be a robot or a cake, something new to learn or craft. Throughout school, college and university I created things, I sewed things and I built things. I made more accessories, home furnishings, costumes and clothes than I can remember but it was more often than not for somebody else. Helping others made me happy – this is a thought I needed to hold on to, I just didn’t know it yet. Straight out of university I landed ....

  • The King OF All Exercises

    BACK SQUATS They're such a powerful exercise that it could be classed as the 'king' of exercise. That depends... There are many factors that contribute to a good (or bad) back squat. Mobility and stability throughout the chain, which many people lack in certain areas, are vital to a back squat. If the squat feels wrong, painful or uncomfortable - DON'T DO IT! Work on single leg squat and lunge variations to provide more than enough stimulus to get the legs working! Take a look at this image If your squat range is like the bottom picture , you need to stop squatting right now. You most probably are doing more harm than good. Our suggest ....
