I have recently had the good fortune of being asked to be the resident fitness expert on a great website at www.wearethecity.com which is mainly aimed at female City workers, many of whom are my clients. I invite you to check it out and read some of the articles they have archived including one on nutrition and another titled “Awesome Abs”.
Today I wanted to speak a little about how I regularly get my clients great results. The two things I tell them they need to have in both their workouts and their food selection are INTENSITY and CONSISTENCY. By this I mean they have to work hard and be totally focused on their session. This means not chatting for 15 minutes at the drinks fountain or reading The Times between sets! I swear I’ve seen this happen!!! It also means you have to be consistent with your diet and your workouts. It means sticking to your diet plan a minimum of 80% of the time and getting to the gym 3-4 times a week.
Even a badly designed exercise programme and reasonably slack eating will bring results if you train with intensity ie you sweat! and if you do it regularly. Ofcourse a top drawer exercise programme combined with sound nutritional principles will bring better results even faster!!
