Reading about Strength

Reading about Strength

I'm often juggling a few books and here is a fantastic one I'm reading at the moment, which I would thoroughly recommend if you've got two X chromosomes and you're interested in what being strong could do and could mean for you:

It's so important to surround yourself with resources and people who support what you're looking to achieve. We all know how demoralising it can feel when you tell someone about a new goal of yours, or something you're working to achieve, and they snub it, or tell you it can't be done. 

It may well shake your belief in yourself and whether you can do it or not, and that will then affect your action towards it.

What if you believe unequivocally that you could, or at least you borrowed that belief off someone who had it, temporarily, until you had it yourself? Think of what you could achieve.

What's the Taster Session About?

What's the Taster Session About?

Hi there!

I'd like to let you know today a little bit more about the taster session and what it's all about. Press play below to have a watch:

Basically, it's an opportunity to:

  • Come and meet me - I'm very different to the general public perception of a personal trainer, trust me!
  • Come and see the gym - it's very different too, compared to the big, commercial gyms which most of my clients don't feel much of an affinity with!
  • Learn how you can get stronger and fitter when you feel like you don't have the time to do it and don't know where to start
  • Get some tips on how you can start seeing your body differently.

If this sounds good to you, I'd love to see you. You can click the button below and go direct to my online booking system and get booked in. Only five spaces are available every month, so I would recommend snapping yours up now!

My Strength Journey

My Strength Journey

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: 

Why Warrior?

Why Warrior?

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

Less stress

Better posture

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,

Amy

An Example of Strength

An Example of Strength

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:

We did:

  • Forward rolls
  • Dive forward rolls
  • Forward rolls off a swiss ball
  • Cartwheels
  • Round offs
  • Crow pose

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? 

  • Emma's core
  • Emma's shoulders
  • Emma's mind - she was nervous, but so determined. She decided she was going to do it, so she did. 

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.

What to do when you've got loads of work to do but you're feeling ill

What to do when you've got loads of work to do but you're feeling ill

So, I'm feeling sick - very annoying - I'm stronger than I've ever been, I run my own business and I don't want my progress in either to stop. What do I do? How do I find that balance to handle it?

Me & The Warrior Programme

Me & The Warrior Programme

Hi everyone,

I’m Amy and I’m the owner and head trainer at The Warrior Programme in Bristol. I used to be a corporate insurance broker, but I decided that the stress, bureaucracy and desk-life weren’t for me. I studied Law at university and used to spend 12+ hours every day sitting down, at a desk, a car, sofa, and I put on a lot of weight.

So, I understand your stress, frustration and the aches and pains that you push to the back of your mind. I get that you’re extremely busy, with a million demands on your time every day, but that you know that you need and want to take care of yourself. I love making that easy for you, so you don’t have to spend hours in the gym, or worry about what to eat. You don’t have to put up with aches and pains, stress and poor sleep.

I know there’s a million things on the market too, but don’t worry, I’ve done the leg work to find out what works, so you don’t have to.

I love helping people grow more into their mould, as opposed to the one we’re all supposed to fit into. After all, that’s what being a Warrior is all about – feeling strong, confident, capable and in control.

I don’t believe in weighing or measuring people – instead, we track your progress via what you can do and how you feel. You are vastly more than a number.

This is what makes The Warrior Programme different and why my Warriors carry on training with me.

If this sounds like a good fit for you and what you’ve been looking for, then get in touch with my today. I offer all new clients a free taster session, with no obligation or hard sell, just an opportunity to see if it will work for you.

To book your free taster session, just drop me a message on this page with your email and mobile number and I’ll get you booked in.

Please feel free to share this with your friends too.

How To Get Stronger On Your Bike

How To Get Stronger On Your Bike

Last week, I was due to be talking at an event for the lovely Bike Science but the Bristol traffic with three accidents had other plans! So, instead, I've recorded my talk - about how to get stronger on your bike - for all to watch.

If you're a cyclist who wants to get faster or cover more mileage, making sure you're as comfortable and injury-free as possible, this is for you. If you're a person who just wants to get stronger, fitter and works a desk job at the moment, this is also for you!

Any questions, please don't hesitate to message me!

 

 

What's the point of strength training?

What's the point of strength training?

You'll hear me talking about strength training a LOT! Why? What will I get out of it? Will I get big and bulky? What's so good about it?

Well, I'm here to answer some of your questions!

Sick of feeling stressed out?

Sick of feeling stressed out?

Fed up of feeling like you're being used by the world?

Sick of feeling like you don't have any time?

Desperate to have some time for yourself?

Warriors know when to push and when to rest. Warriors know when their tank is almost empty and when to re-fuel. Warriors know when enough's enough.
