I hooked up with my friend Natalie Scott the other
week. I met her in a car park dressed in
This wasn’t some dodgy website meet. We were
both in wetsuits doing some open water
Natalie use to be a client of mine. She
should wear a cape with a BIG S on it!
Not only is she’s is a great trainer, massage
therapist but she also just completed an
Ironman. Thats an amazing 2.4 mile swim, 110
mile bike ride and a icing on the cake…a
Natalie was instrumental in me ‘raising my

She said “Russ, sorry but based on the times
you’re giving me you wont finish.” I felt

The thing is, we don’t like honesty.
Especially when it comes to how we look and

my belly. Because you can’t buy health or
weight loss. There are no magic pills. Only
good effective advice and then…
…doing what’s required!
HIIT Training tonight at 8pm Pleshey.
