The worst thing you can do…

Lose weight now

Not long till the big guy comes down the chimney. Yes I still believe in fairies (been a few of those at training recently!) But the worst thing you can do this time of year is take you foot off the gas. Stop training, stop exercising. “Well you’re going to say that aren’t you Russell?” […]

My friend Keith is a die hard rugby fan. An Irishman through and through. But he’s had no beer to celebrate the rugby so far…just mineral water! Why? Well I was coaching Keith last night. He’s lost an amazing 2 stone in a month, give or take a pound. He’s been working hard on his […]
