So, last week, I went on holiday to Alpe D'Huez to cycle the famous Tour de France climb for the third time. A tough cycle, very hot, very steep and a real grind.

Do you feel like you're not confident enough to walk into a gym? No idea what to wear? Feel like you can't wear what you want to?
This week, I talk about mine and my clients' experiences with feeling like this:
Do you struggle with getting the confidence to go to the gym, never mind the weights section?
Does it feel like everyone else is the finished article and you're just getting started?
I hear you! Have a watch...

Recently, I explained to you why I picked the name 'The Warrior Programme'.
This week, I'd like to go into more detail about the mindset coaching aspect of what I do.
Many of us want to make changes in our bodies, me included. When I started this journey, I wanted to lose weight, get fitter and generally feel better about myself. I was at university, eaten a load of crap and spent 24/7 studying, and I ended up putting on 3 stone.
So, I wanted to lose this and fast! I did, and the main theme for today, which I'd like to share with you, are the changes in my mind which enabled me to do this and keep the weight off for in excess of five years.
Let's start with what I believed about myself and my situation:
Time spent on exercise and looking after myself was wasted
I didn't have time
I couldn't afford it
I was never meant to have a good body
I was unattractive
This was just my lot
Now, none of that is particularly motivating or empowering to actually get up and do something about your situation!
So, I made a start using pure willpower and muscle, which will get you a certain distance, but not the whole way. Furthermore, for the changes to last, the desire to change and maintain the changes needs to come from somewhere deeper.
What did I do? I worked on changing my beliefs to:
I have a healthy, lean body
I am confident in my appearance
I love what I see in the mirror
I am a strong, confident woman
This started literally by me writing these down and saying them over and over again to myself and feeling ridiculous! After a while, they sunk in and I started to believe it.
Now, I know some of you will be thinking 'b*****ks!* and I don't blame you, I used to. But my point is, if you have an effective belief system and value your self, you are vastly more likely to take the appropriate physical steps to make changes in your lifestyle.
For example, someone starts working with a personal trainer, but they believe they will always be 'fat'. They are more likely to leave things off their food diary, not do their home training sessions and not take it seriously.
Whereas, someone who believes they can have what they want, will take all the action they can.
So, naturally, I help clients make this change - which is one of the things that sets me apart from other trainers - and I'd like to introduce to you one of the ways I do it - through The Warrior Programme’s online Mindset Coaching programme!
I’ve been developing this over the past few months and I’m so excited to be sharing it with you.
What’s it about?
The course includes:
This is for you if you are:

Denise Neale-Gordon says this about it:
'I enjoyed the mindset homework. I really was able to get right down to the root of the issues surrounding my weight of late and previously. There were lots of tears and lots of healing. I feel like I have turned a corner with all of this. It helped me to see that there was some clutter in my life that needed to go, physically, mentally and emotionally and there has been a lot of clearing out. I am feeling great internally and externally. The head hunger has gone because I am dealing with the mind issues and haven't had any of it.'
To get you started, take five minutes to think about the following:
Is there anything you want to change about your body? (if not, amazing!) This could be weight, posture, flexibility, pain, fitness, anything...
What small thing can you do this week to move you closer towards your goal?
Until next week,

I speak a lot about clients and their achievements on my video blogs, so this week, I decided to talk a little bit about where I've come from, how I started and where I'm going. For me, it's all about strength and this is what strength means to me:
Check this out - it's Emma's first go at a clean & press, built into a bigger sequence of movements that we call a barbell complex.
Emma trained with another personal trainer for two years and barely touched free weights, so she by no means walked into training with me a weights expert, and look at this:
I get asked a lot, 'why did you choose the name 'The Warrior Programme?' or the word 'Warrior'.
So today, I'd like to explain to you why I picked it and what it means to be a Warrior!
Press play below to watch:
A Warrior is someone who is strong, both physically and mentally.
Before my Warriors start with me, this is where they are:
Working really hard in your job or on your business - driven and ambitious - you want to do well and you have big plans
You know your health is suffering because of it - your hours are long, you spend a lot of time sitting down and you're stressed
You don't know where to start with fixing it
You don't know how you're going to find the time
You know your posture isn't great and you don't feel that flexible
You feel unfit and you're not that strong
You're not a huge fan of your body - it doesn't look quite how you want it to
You don't know how to make healthy choices, particularly given you're always working and feel you have to rely on convenience food
You don't feel confident enough to just walk into a gym and start working on it yourself
You know you won't be that motivated doing it by yourself
You don't want your business or work ambitions to be hampered by your health or stress levels
And this is what they want:
A successful business or to be promoted to the level you want to reach in your company
Financial and physical freedom
To feel strong and fit
To feel really confident
To enjoy and feel at peace with the way you look
To reach your potential
What have they tried to get there?
Diets - didn't work
A gym membership - didn't go or went for a few minutes, didn't know what you were doing, felt silly and left
Perhaps another personal trainer - didn't get on and/or didn't get the results you wanted
Nothing - I just don't know what to do!
I help them get stronger, fitter, more confident, less stressed and more productive!
If any of this resonates with you, I'd love to invite you to a FREE TASTER SESSION. Now, I only make five spaces available for these every month and I'm full for June, but there are still places available for July.
If you'd like to book one, please click the button below:
This email is going out to a lot more than 5 people, so if you'd like to come, I'd recommend you book now to avoid disappointment - once the slots for July are gone, they're gone!
Very much looking forward to seeing you there!
Until next month,
The Warrior Programme
I realise I post about deadlifts and my clients' achievements with them a lot, so today I wanted to explain what they are and why they're important.
If this resonates with you, please get in touch!
Strength can mean all sorts of things. It means different things to everyone.
Emma's been doing yoga for quite a while, but she didn't think she could do crow pose. We spent our session on Friday working through all the transitions to get to this:
Then the video, which is crow to headstand - something people can struggle for years with, but Emma mastered it within one session. SO COOL.
So what's strong here?
And that's where training for strength is important - it transfers skills to your real life. If you feel strong enough to take on the gym world, imagine what you can do in the real world!
Ask for a payrise?
Tell your partner what you want?
Stand up for yourself in a difficult situation?
The gym is just a tool to help you get stronger so you can ask for and receive what you want. Plus, you can do awesome things like this!
I'm going to be showcasing more examples of strength over the coming weeks, complete with hints and tips on how you can easily make yourself stronger.
