Every single week I speak to someone who feels like they aren't making any progress or [...]

What haven’t we used the menstrual cycle as an excuse for? Uncontrollable chocolate cravings to shoplifting. Its even been used by lawyers to seek lesser penalties! The major shifts a woman experiences throughout her cycle can have a major impact on memory, sex-drive, hunger, energy levels and mood. If it can have such an affect [...]

Bah Humbug…

It's that time of year, you know dark mornings and dark nights... It's like winter just sucks the motivation from everyone. Combine this with the good old Scottish outlook on life and you have a winning combination... For DOOM. Seriously is it just me or do we as a nation have the worst outlook ever? [...]

Common Sense, Is Not Common…

By |2019-07-28T15:32:44+00:00November 4th, 2015|Training|

Did you know I work in education? I still teach part time at a local college in Glasgow. Teaching fitness mostly and occasionally some sports coaching. Just incase you're anything like my mother who thinks teaching fitness is about jumping about in spandex and sports coaching is just kicking a ball around, there's a bit [...]

It’s Not About The GOAL…

By |2019-07-28T15:32:44+00:00October 14th, 2015|Training|

I love the quote from Alice In Wonderland "If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there." Now goal setting can be tricky for a number of reasons, it's not like putting the postcode into the sat nav and it just happens automatically. Sometimes even when you know the destination you [...]

Double Cheeseburger and fries, with a Bacon milkshake please? Make it a large. The Reactive coaches spent the weekend in London on a training course.
