EXCLUSIVE 2 WEEK FITNESS CAMP . . .

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

.

WE’RE GOING PRIMAL!
.
So look, the first fitness camp of 2011 will be a special 2 week program exclusively for previous members of the program and past personal training clients, taking us right up to the official launch of the all new Weymouth Fitness Camp.
.
Here’s the info:
.
It WAS going to be back in St Aldhelms Church Hall, BUT, they’ve just called to say they had a horrendous leak in there and it’s pretty nasty apparently, making it un-trainable. SO . . .
.
I thought you know what, fresh air is good for you, so fresh air is what we’re going to get! I just last night had one of my private clients in the car park at Lodmoor country park, smashing kettlebells, bodyweight, pushing me around in my car, and playing with a 45ft long rope too. This was a beast of a session!
.
Anyway, I figured we just as well get out there. So this program is going to take place at Lodmoor, in the big car park. The meeting point is outside the entrance to the Go-Karts. It’s nice and light there as they’ve got a pile of street lamps so that’s lighting sorted. We will also most probably venture out onto the prom and onto Greenhill if there is enough light there. If it’s icy then we can go on the grass, if it rains you’ll get wet, if it’s horrendous rain there are a couple of places we can slip off to to train.
.
I’ve got an IMMENSE program planned for you guys, involving most of the toys, in particular the ropes and kettlebells. You’ll also be intorduced to a couple of the brand new workouts for WFC, such as The Beast, Grenade, and  NWA (never walk again), as well as my friend ‘Wild Bill’.
.
It will of course be a little chilly, but that won’t last long. To be fair, it probably won’t be any colder than the church hall was over the past couple of months. Remember to wear a couple of layers, you may want a hat and some gloves too, and DEFINITELY bring some water.
.
So look, it’s 6.30 til 7.15am Mon, Weds and Fri, it start son Monday 3rd January, and the final session will be Friday 14th January. It costs £30, and is going to be an IMMENSE thing to wipe out the memories of all the naughty foods and drinks we ALL ate/drank over Christmas and NYE (mine was just the food!).
.
Anyway, my web guy has taken a few days off so I can’t get a new PayPal button online, so here’s what to do:
.

  • Head over to http://www.procisionfitness.com/
  • Click on the phase one fat loss program
  • (a pop up box wiLl . . . . pop up).
  • At the top of this box is a ‘buy now’ button.
  • Click this, make payment of the £30, and you’re good to go.
  • Don’t fill the form in, as this is for something else, and you’ll get a pile of confusing emails from me!

.
I’m only opening this up for 14 people, as I want to keep this program pretty compact, so if you want ‘IN’, don’t wait around umming and arring ;-)
.
Have a great NYE, get some Alka Seltzer in for NYD, and get ready to train, eat and live well from Jan 3rd.
.
To your success

Weymouth Triathletes tear it up in the snow

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

.

Yesterday, To the MAX was on the brink of being cancelled, for the first time ever!

.

The snow had forced our usual facility to be closed, and they wouldn’t let us in to train, so I put my head down, and though ’sod it. Let’s get out there’. So we did. I pinged a text and an email to the 24 strong group of triathletes and runners of varying abilities, letting them know that the session would be running, but outdoors, on the stoney Overcombe beach and along the prom, in the snow.

.

These guys love to train. They see and feel the results. They see the benefit in the work we do. They enjoy the program, and they never give excuses for not being able to train (maybe the occasional genuine reason, but never an excuse). That said, I wasn’t sure how the team would respond to knowing they had to get out in -5 celcius to train in the snow and ice.

.

There was no way my car was getting out of my ice rink of a road, so I donned a load of layers, and ran the 3 miles to the meeting point. A couple were already there, a little cold, but ready to go for it. Then a couple more turned up Then 4 more, then another one, until eventually, come 6.30pm, we had a 16 strong team of people ready to train. Ready to stick two fingers up to the weather, and get their training done. These guys, I said to myself, are dedicated WINNERS.

.

IMMENSE.

.

So anyway, I thought you’d like to see what we got up to:

.

Warm up

About 3-5 minutes jogging, followed by an unloaded full body complex of lunges, squats, push ups and more.

.

Stage 1: Run and Rep (the real R&R!)

30 paces sprint: 10-25 push ups: 30 paces sprint: 10-25 squats: 30 paces sprint: 10 single leg squats per leg: 30 pace sprint: plank to push up position switch: 30 pace sprint. Repeated x 2-3

.

Stage 2: Lunge and Leg it

20 walking lunges: 70 meter sprint. Repeated x 2

40 walking lunges: 50 meter sprint. Repeated x 2

.

Stage 3: Buddy Bondage Push ups

Partner A is in full push up position on floor. Partner B has on hand on A’s ass, one on shoulder. 2 push ups. Shift round so both hands on A’s shoulders. 2 push ups. Shift round to other side, one hand on ass, one on shoulder. 2 push ups. Each repeat for 2:2:2, then 3:3:3: then 4:4:4, each with 20 squats in between each complete set.

.

Stage 4: Ass blast and boot it

Tall to small squats x 20

Single leg jumps x 5 per leg

30 pace sprint x 1

Repeated x 3

.

Stage 5: Piggy back hike

Patner A carries B for 30-50 paces, swap and B carries A back. Repeat x 3. No running allowed, just fast walking with knees slightly bent the whole time. Savage thigh burn.

.

Stage 6 (optional): Run!

At the end of the workout, at least 8 of the team said ‘well we’re here, so let’s go for a little run’. So they smashed out a brisk 1.5 miles running to polish off the session.

.

AMAZING workout, enjoyed by all.

.

Try it out ;-)

WEATHER is NO EXCUSE, nor is TIME

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

.

So today the whole of Weymouth has come to a monstrous stand still. Snow everywhere, cars sliding all over the place, kids launching snowballs in your face, and facilities closing for no apparent reason.

.

I have to tell you that the weather is no excuse not to train! Yes it’s cold, so wrap up. Yes it’s dark, so get a head torch on your skull. Yes it’s easier to sit at home watching Jeremy Kyle and eating chocolate buttons, and plumping up ‘because it’s that time of year’. It’s not however so easy to get into shape, after you’ve let yourself get in even worse shape than last week, and the week before that, and the month before that and so on. You gotta do what you gotta do to get results. So get your ass out there and train. Whether you’re just heading out for a walk because the gyms closed, or maybe a run, perhaps you’re gonna hit out a bodyweight workout in the snow filled park. Whatever you need to do, DO IT. If you don;t want to get outside, then do it indoors TRY THIS 4 MINUTE WORKOUT 4 TIMES IN A DAY if you’re not sure what to do.

.

You’ll see how little of an excuse the weather is by watching the video in the top right of this post! Not the greatest workout ever arguably, BUT we got in there nonetheless!

.

This evening my TO THE MAX program should be cancelled due to the snow, as the venue has told me they won’t open up for us. BUT, I know that all 24 of the people on the program are serious action takers, committed to success, and  WANT to train as much as I want to train them. So, this evening, we’re braving the cold, getting outdoors and we’re gonna have a BLAST with our triathlon training on the beach here in Weymouth. weather is no excuse, and lack of facilities is no more of an excuse than a little bad weather is.

.

Anyway, I also wanted to make a confession today, because I’m not perfect, and I slip up, just like you do. You see, the past 4 weeks, I’d done what I tell SOOOOO many clients NOT to do. I’d let my work take over, and have let my training slip. Although I’d been still getting in around 5 sessions per week, I’d let my triathlon training fall onto the back burner. I’d been so busy with clients, planning for next year, courses, writing stuff, creating new things etc, that I found I didn’t have enough time to train. Or rather, I wasn’t MAKING enough time to train. Although 5 hours a week is a reasonable amount of training, and by no means lazy, I should’ve been doing close to double that to push toward my goal of hitting a sub 10h30m Ironman in Frankfurt in July.

.

So what did I do? Well I did exactly as I tell my clients to do. I went back to my diary, rearranged a couple of things, PLANNED my week out to the minute, and made sure that I’d scheduled in enough time to work, learn, create, train and LIVE. All it takes to break the ‘no time to train’ excuse is a little planning, time management, and a willingness to get it done.

.

Anyway, end of the story, I’m now back up to hitting my training targets, and also now have MORE TIME to do other stuff too. All because I managed to plan things a little better. If you’re lacking time, PLAN your week, and make sure you PLAN TIME TO TRAIN, as well as PREPARE FOOD.

.

Have a great week. Be true to yourself and your body, and get some workouts in, NO MATTER WHAT!

.

Andy ;-)

Weymouth Personal Trainer: Interview with UK’s leading fat loss expert

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Hey guys, hope you’re well. Thought this might interest you:

.

Basically I was privileged and really excited this week to be asked to do an interview by the UK’s leading fat loss expert- Paul Mort of thefitnesscamp.co.uk .

.

Paul tours the UK and Europe teaching Personal Trainers and fitness instructors how to get great results and he’s personally mentored me.

.

Here’s some of the interview we did:

.

PM: So Andy, can you tell us a little bit about how you got into the business of weight loss and a little about your journey. I know you’re well into training, but what’s the story behind you?

.

AS: Yeah, well I did a sports degree at Uni, and during the last year of that decided that I wanted to get into personal training. At that time, I was really into weights and all I wanted to do was get as big as I could, just like most 19-20 year old lads who hit the gym. I also got into running while at uni, banged a couple of decent half marathon times and kept training hard. I think what made me want to get into coaching others was the fact that I loved training so much, and couldn’t, and in fact still can;t, see how anyone couldn’t have it in their lives. Soon as I left uni, I set about getting myself into PT, so got the courses done, worked my ass off, studied under a pile of the worlds leading fitness minds including JC Santana and Dax Moy, and just did everything I could to get as good as I could be at training people. Through my years of training people, I found that I got very good at getting people to shift fat fast, and decided that that was one of the things I’d like to specialise in. For me it’s about getting changing people’s lives by getting their bodies to look, move and feel how they want them to. I find that my clients fat loss is just the same as me and my Ironman training and competing. The harder and better they work at it, the better the results. Same with me and my training. The better I train, the faster I get.

.

PM: Wow, you really have ‘been there, done that’. Now lets get into the meat of the interview. What would you say are the 3 MOST IMPORTANT things when it comes to losing bodyfat

.

AS: First off I’d say that you’ve gotta eat right. Everyone knows what they should eat Fresh food, and no crap. But so few people actually do it! I hit this on the head with my clients through my Hit & Miss Diet, which I’m actually currently turning into a 30-40 page document that I’m gonna let 1000 people download for free! Secondly is the training. This can be a little different to diet, as although everyone will admit that exercise is necessary for getting in shape, there’s still a lot of misconceptions about what they need to do to get into shape. So making sure the training is correct is vital. Lastly is the biggest one, and if they nail this then I can be sure they’ll almost instantly change their lives, and that’s commitment. No commitment equals no results, fact. You can’t cheat yourself to good health and fitness, and as soon as more people realise this, they’ll get the kind of results that my guys are getting every week.

.

PM: Great stuff. So what would you say are the 3 BIGGEST MISTAKES you’re seeing people make

.

AS: Ha, it’d be easy to say ”not doing the previous three things”, and that’s pretty much what I’d say. However, I’d also add a fourth and say that one of the main things is when people don;t make themselves accountable for their success. After all, I know that my methods work, not sometimes, not most of the time, but every time, when the client follows everything I tell them to do to the letter. But people are too quick to say things like ‘I had to have a drink coz it was my friends birthday’, or I had no time this afternoon so had to grab a sandwich’, or ‘I couldn’t find the necessary 15 minutes to train today’, and generally a pile of BS excuses like that. People need to realise in no uncertain terms that the success or failure of their mission is in their hands, no one elses.

.

.

PM: you know, I see those all the time too and it makes me a little sad. So what would you say to motivate someone to finally get into great shape, even if they’ve tried everything?

.

AS: Everyone’s different, and so has to be treated as such. Some people need a mahoosive kick up the arse, while others need an incentive. Some people need weekly measurements, or a weekly coaching call. Others will find one of my other clients or fitness class or bootcamp members to train with outside of time with me, and some will just need a little love! Ha

.

PM: I’ve heard A LOT about your fitness bootcamps, can you tell me a little bit more about them and the training and nutrition plan that seems to be getting superb results?

.

AS: Yes mate. Well They started initially as my Summer SLimmer program during the summer months, and these were quality. We were hitting the beach, the parks, the cliffs and hills, everywhere outdoors that would help us have a killer workout. Then the weather and sun disappeared so we took it inside, and I called it Wake up and Shape up, as it didn’t really warrant a summery name anymore. So thats been running since September, and we’ve got some great results. One of the guys lost 21lbs in 28 days in one of the camps, and that’s the current record. But in January things are changing. I’m going to be putting on a pile more sessions, giving people even more value for money in terms of the extras I’ll be giving them, and it’s generally gonna kick some serious ass. I’ll be using my FLAME principle, which is my Fat Loss Accelerating Metabolic Enhancement system, and this is the single most effective way I’ve found to burn fat in the quickest way possible. Nutrition is simple. Eat the good stuff, and stay away from the shit. The Hit & Miss Diet is where it’s at, and as well as this I’ve got a pile of other protocols to help people bust any plateaus too. The guys get a program to do in their own time too, which is up to 2 sessions per week, and these only take like 15-30 minutes so are dead easy to fit in between sessions with me. I love the program, and cant wait for january when things are gonna get insane.

.

PM: Sounds amazing, in fact a lot of the principles make complete sense. So where can people find out more about you?

.

AS: Glad you think so chief. Yep, well procisionfitness.com is the site to head to for info about me, and in a couple of weeks, I’ll be launching the all new weymouthfitnesscamp.co.uk too. There’s also a social members only social network site too, which I;m gonna use as added support so my guys get even more bang for their buck. I’m running a free fat loss seminar, provisionally at Weymouth Pavilion on January 12th, and with any luck I’ll get 100-200 people there who are keen to learn about what they need to do to get in shape. Should be quality!

.

PM: Well Andy, thanks for your time, you’ve been a gent, and I hope it all goes off with a bang for you and your guys in January.

.

AS: My pleasure mate, great working with you.

.

So that’s how that went down anyway. Paul’s a great guy, and a great mentor of mine, and I’m really chuffed to be working with him.

.

Eat clean, train mean, stay lean

.

Andy

Are YOU and action taker? Christmas Bootcamp Weymouth

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

NEARLY CHRISTMAS!!!

.
So we’re just shy of a month away from Christmas now, and that means parties, works do’s, treats in the house for the kids, dinner with friends, seeing family you’ve not seen since last Christmas and so on
.
But what do you do? Do you say ‘I’m going to get in shape in January, so no need to worry about it yet’, or do you say ‘JANUARY?! I need to get in shape NOW!’?
.
I know which one I’d recommend, and I’m sure you do too. On that note, check out this quick video I did for you this week on goal setting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfU-PBIhMq4
.
Anyway, here are 4 reasons not to wait til January:
.
You can enjoy yourself MORE:
.
Simple. If you’ve done a pile of work and begun getting your body into great shape, your metabolism will already been on the up, you’ll be feeling and looking better, and when on Christmas day someone hands you a piece of cheesecake, that you have absolutely no room for as you’ve already just nailed 3 desserts, you can be like me and say ‘well, I’ve earnt it, so I’ll get it down somehow’. Simply put, if you’ve kept a pretty clean diet, and trained well up to Christmas, then you can feel good about actually eating whatever the hell you want to eat on Christmas day.
.
Waiting sucks:
.
Waiting for a bus sucks. Waiting for a train sucks. Waiting too long in a restaurant sucks. Waiting for someone else to get you in shape is pointless. Waiting for ‘the right time’ to start shaping up SUCKS. Come January, it’ll STILL be the same. You’ll be the one responsible for your own body shape destiny, no one else will get you to where you want to be. Ultimately it comes down to YOU. But why wait when you don’t have to? If I could buy a ticket to skip a bus line I would. Same for a train. If I could slip the waitress a fiver and get my food quicker I would. So if I was out of shape and needed to get myself looking good, why would I wait? I wouldn’t. I’d do something about it now. Today. If you could drop 10lbs BEFORE January, have an amazing Christmas eating and drinking what you want, and then when all your pals are just starting to think about losing weight, know that YOU already lost a load, would you want that? Of course you would. So WHY WAIT? Don’ tell yourself it’s a time thing. It’s not. Don’t tell yourself it’s a motivation thing. It doesn’t have to be. Don’t say it’s a ‘being too tired thing’. It’s not!
.
Getting off to a running start:
.
We’ve already briefly mentioned it. In January, YOU can be 10lbs lighter, fitter and sexier., while your buddy’s are just thinking about joining one of those horrendous women’s only fixed path machine circuit groups. Come January, would you rather hit the ground running, already with all the momentum you’ll need to see you through, or would you rather risk another year of ‘what could have been’?
.
Waiting REALLY sucks:
.
I forgot to mention this bit in the ‘waiting sucks’ bit, so have added it as it’s own, stand alone reason, and here goes. IF YOU SPENT YOUR LIFE WAITING TO CHANGE IT ON JANUARY 1st AND ONLY JANUARY 1st, YOU’D SPEND 364 DAYS OF THE YEAR WAITING FOR JANUARY 1st AND WOULD GET NOTHING ACCOMPLISHED.
.
Hope the cap’s didn’t scare you there!
.
Anyway look, I’m going to make this extremely simple for you right now. IF and only IF you are ready to be an action taker and not an excuse maker, then keep reading and this will be for you:
.
WAKE UP AND SHAPE UP – CHRISTMAS MELTDOWN
.
This kicks off on Monday December 6th, and is 3 x 45 minute early morning, metabolism boosting, ass (and excuse) whooping workouts, fat destroying workouts per week for the next 3 weeks up to Christmas! We are training Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6.30-7.15am at St Aldhelm’s Church Hall, Radipole, Weymouth, and YOU are invited. This program takes you right up to Christmas eve, meaning that when we torch your metabolism on that morning, come Christmas Day, the rate at which you’ll be burning calories will still be through the roof, meaning much less of your Christmas eats and drinks will end up making you pile on weight.
.
Sound good?
.
I bet it does.
.
As well as the coaching, you’ll also get 1 x FREE 20 minute coaching call with me, Dorset’s leading fat loss specialist, as well as a full nutritional plan with no calorie counting, point scoring or wasted time. EVEN BETTER than all that, you get a 100% money back guarantee that says that if you’ve not dropped at least 1 clothes size by Christmas, you’ll get EVERY PENNY BACK, PLUS free entry to the next program!
.
All this for an investment of just £45. To sign up, do it right now over at http://www.procisionfitness.com/fitness_classes.html All you need to do is scroll down the page, click on the PayPal button on the Wake up and Shape up box, and pay an initial £40 to secure your place (the remaining £5 is payable at session 1).
.
So that’s it.
.
The program is gonna be a hoot, and there are just 16 spaces available, so if you want one, get one today!
.
Are YOU an action taker? Marcus is . . . .  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsFzU_feSVk
.

If you’re not, then feel free to try the magical power plate I’m ranting about in the top right of your screen!

ULTIMATE CONDITIONING - Weymouth’s most intense Fitness class!

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

.

WOW.
.
Last nights ULTIMATE CONDITIONING session was awesome.
.
It was great to see so many people there, and I gotta say I was mightily impressed with the work rate, even though it was just a ‘taster’. You guys who were there kicked some serious ass! Those of you who weren’t there, you can check out what we got up to on the video right here: http://www.procisionfitness.com/fitness_classes.html
.
Anyway, you now have a pretty good idea of what’s gonna go on with in the program, and I’m hoping that if you were one of the 24 that turned up last night, you loved the training, and the feeling of doing all those cool exercises with some pretty awesome bits of kit. If you didn’t make it, I’m hoping you feel like you missed out on something special, and now can’t wait to get stuck into the coming program.
.
So look, I’ll keep this dead simple. The 5 week program proper kicks off next Wednesday (Nov 24th), 6.15pm at Budmouth Sports Centre, and costs a frighteningly low £26 for the full block of 5 of THE greatest workouts you will ever experience. For the training you’re going to be getting, this is an absolute steel. There were 24 people there last night, a further 6 that I had to turn away earlier in the day, and another 7 who have emailed me today wishing they’d read the email sooner! That’s great, BUT I’m only making 18 spaces available for the program. So, if you are ready to commit to 5 ass kicking , character building, FUN, ULTIMATE CONDITIONING sessions, and want to sign yourself up, then you first off need to hit me back with an email right away, and then get yourself over to http://www.procisionfitness.com/fitness_classes.html right away and get paid up to secure your place on the program. Please note, there is no pay and train available. You’re either in or you’re out. IF there happens to be one or two spaces available come Wednesday, I may open up a first come first served pay per play policy, at £8 per session.
.
So that’s it, if you want in, you know what to do. If you came last night but have decided it’s not for you, then thanks for coming, and I hope to see you soon ;-)
.
Have a great week, and I can’t wait to hear from you!
.
PS – any feedback from last nights session will, as always, be appreciated. So feel free to let me know your thoughts.

The cool thing about the type of training you’ll be doing, is that just about anyone is able to participate, due to the massive variety of progressions, adaptations and and protocols that will be utilised. Whether you’ve been exercising consistently for 4 weeks or 40 years, you can participate fully, and you’ll absolutely LOVE the training too.

During the program you’ll be using a combination of equipment that NO other fitness facility or trainer in the whole of Dorset is currently using, including ropes, powerbags, medicine balls, kettlebells, power wheels, JC bands, superbands and plenty more, to ensure that the workouts are the most energetic, exciting and above all FUN that you will EVER experience. In fact, if after your first session, you think the training is boring, dull, generally rubbish, or just not for you, I’ll personally refund every penny of your booking fee.
.
Check out what’s on offer with this AMAZING program:
.

  1. 6 x 45 minute group fitness sessions with Dorset’s leading personal trainer
  2. The EXACT diet plan as used on the Procision Fitness guaranteed results training programs (the ONLY personal trainer in the whole of Dorset to guarantee results). This involves NO calorie counting, NO coloured days, NO food weighing, NO point scoring, and NO nonsense, just common sense, and IMMENSE results EVERY time
  3. A recipe book containing 20 recipes compatible with the diet, to get you started
  4. A full workout program to complete in your own time, in as little as 16 minutes, 4 days per week, with NO equipment necessary
  5. 24/7 access to your trainer via email, and telephone support between 5am and 11pm 7 days per week
  6. 1 x 10 minute coaching call with your trainer during week one of the program to answer any particular questions you may have

.
(if you want to just do the training and not worry about the rest of the above, that’s cool too ;-)

Fitness class in Weymouth that GUARANTEES RESULTS?

Monday, November 1st, 2010

.

That’s right, in just a few short weeks the Christmas parties will be kicking off, nights out with work colleagues, seeing family you’ve not seen since last Christmas, and then it’s the big one, New Year. The time that almost everyone says ‘this is the year I’m going to get in the best shape of my life’….. until February that is, when the motivation disappears, and the lost pounds reappear, even faster than they fell off with the calorie restrictive, point scoring, coloured day, ‘slim shakes’, Special K, or whatever other waste of time diet plan was used.
.
Right now, people out there are already saying (and plenty of people have even mentioned it to ME already!) that as soon as 2011 comes, that’s it, they’ll start eating right and do some exercise. Great. Well what about the next few weeks? They’re just going to let themselves pile on MORE weight? Something I can’t understand. Here’s one way to look at it: If you’re filling up a bath with water, and it’s getting close to the brim, rather than let it overflow, you turn off the tap and then let a little water out until it’s at a good level. You don’t think ‘ah well, I’ll just flood my house and sort it next week, when there’s probably already been real some damage to your house that’s gonna take a looooong time to repair. But hey, maybe that’s just me ;-)
.
The big question is WHY WAIT?
.
Because I just don’t have TIME right now
Because I have no MOTIVATION
Because the new year will be a NEW START
Because in January I’m going to join the GYM with my friend
.
All excuses, not reasons. You DO have the time, as it can take as little as 16 minutes per day, 5 days per week to drop up to 30lbs in a month. Besides, are you REALLY going to have any more time available in January? ‘Oh but I’ll make time’. Then why not make it NOW?! Regarding motivation, if looking and feeling your best and being able to slip on any item of clothing and feel like the prom king or queen isn’t motivation, I sure as hell don’t know what is. Don’t wait another couple of months to start your transformation, start it now, today. If we all waited until the new year to get a new start, we’d probably spend 11 months of the year miserable! If you and your pal are going to join the gym in January, chances are that by February the novelty will be wearing off, through March you’ll drop to once or twice a week at most, and by April (at the latest) it’ll be a distant memory, and you’ll be wondering (just like 90% of gym ‘members’) why there’s £30-£60 leaving your bank account each month, which you’re getting
nothing for in return.
.
So look, I’m going to make this VERY simple for you. If I could tell you that
within 28 days of taking part in a group training program, 3 days per week, that won’t mean you need to exercise for hours on end, that has a bunch of other people just like you to help you stay motivated, that’s fun, that’s effective, and that 100% categorically, emphatically, no strings attached GUARANTEES that you’ll drop AT LEAST one clothes size within 4 weeks or get 100% of your money back, and will cost you LESS than many gym memberships, would you be interested?
.
Chances are that yes you would be.
.
So, that’s what I’m giving you.
.
3 sessions per week with
Dorset’s leading personal trainer, bright and early in the morning so it doesn’t wreck your day, using a combination of functional training equipment that NO other facility or trainer in Dorset is currently using, and a full workout program to complete in your own time, which means you’ll be working out for just 16 minutes on two other days per week. You’ll drop at east one clothing size within the time period, this is guaranteed. If by some miracle you have done EVERYTHING I’ve asked of you but still didn’t lose the clothing size, I’ll refund your entire fee, no questions asked. In fact I’m so confident that the tried and tested (on over 300 people) program works, that even that’s not good enough. So I’ll also GIVE YOU a FREE membership to the next program to make sure you DO get that clothes size dropped!
.
Now look, there’s an
absolute maximum of 20 people allowed on this one of a kind program, and it’s starting in just one week. That means there’s not much time for faffing around, tossing up any pro’s (and if there are any) cons of doing the program, or the type of indecisiveness that has lead to prolonging getting into/back into exercise and healthy eating for so long. So here ere are the details;
.
Location: St Aldhelms Church Hall, Radipole, Weymouth
Start date: Monday November 8th 2010
Days: Mon, Weds, Fri
Time: 6.30 til 7.15am
Program duration: 4 weeks
Price: £58
.
What you get:
.

  • 12 x 45 minute sessions with Dorset’s leading personal trainer
  • Full diet, with no calorie counting, no point scoring, no coloured days, no cabbage soup, no magic shakes or any of that other nonsense
  • Full workout program to complete in your own time, for just 16 minutes, on two days per week
  • A 100% guarantee that you’ll drop at least one clothes size, or get all your money back plus a free 4 week membership to the next program
  • Access to me via email 24/7, with a guaranteed response time of less than 24 hours
  • A free 10 minute coaching call during week one of the program to individually answer any questions you may have

.
I really can’t make this any easier for you to decide upon. Yes you may have to get up a little earlier in the morning and yes you have to do a little exercise and eat a healthy diet. But, if
you’re going to be looking AMAZING well before the LBD season of Christmas and New Year sets in, 100% financially risk free, then it’s gotta be worth it right?!
.

Don’t just take my word for it though, check out what one of my private clients has had to say about the EXACT SAME nutritional plan you’ll be following, as well as some of the same training protocols: HERE’S THE LINK

.
Even if fat loss isn’t a priority for you, but you purely want to get healthier and enjoy some great training . . .
.
Then you can STILL sign up, as the program will give you an amazing health kick, and you’ll absolutely LOVE the training too ;-)
.
There really is nothing to lose.
.
So, to sign up, all you need to do is first of all email me telling me you’re ‘IN’, and ask me any other questions you may have, then head over to http://www.procisionfitness.com/fitness_classes.html and scroll down to the bottom of the page, under the title Wake up and Shape up (ignore the paragraph below),  and make a deposit payment of £40 via the PayPal link. As soon as your deposit payment is complete, you’re in, and I’ll be able to email you the nutrition and workout program, so you can get ready for the start date of Monday November 8th. The remaining £18 is payable within the first week of the program.
.
I can’t wait to see you there, and help you get into some seriously great shape well in time for Christmas. Remember there’s a maximum of 20 spaces, which will fill up fast, so get yourself over to http://www.procisionfitness.com/fitness_classes.html asap ;-)
.
To your success

Wake Up and Shape Up - Bootcamp Weymouth

Monday, October 4th, 2010

WAKE UP AND SHAPE UP . . . . IN THE WARM!

Yep, Autumn has well and truly set in, and Winter will be on its way in no time at all. The mornings are getting darker, wetter and colder, and I’m guessing that the majority of people don’t like training in the dark, wet or cold at 6.30am!
.
So, I’ve had a masterplan. You see, often people will give up on a training program when the weather gets a bit crap, and the days get darker and shorter, as the motivation to get up early, head out for a run or get to the gym to train seems to go out the window faster than the English Summertime. But giving up is not the thing to do. After all, why let your fitness and figure slip just because mother nature has dictated that our climate is gonna suck for most of the year?! So, after A LOT of digging around (it’s amazing how many facilities don’t open as early as we train!), I’ve managed to arrange a suitable indoor location for us to train in. Yippee.
.
This means that you can be warm, on a stable surface, and out of the rain (there’s even toilets, a kitchen and plenty of free parking!), but STILL get to participate in some kickass workouts and get some remarkable results. Bonus. Now, the workouts this time around will be a little different. Of course there will be a lot of stuff that’s similar to what we’ve already been doing in the programs, so loads of bodyweight work, some cardio (minimal to zero running) but for the winter months we’re going to be doing a lot more training with the bands, the balls and a few other toys. As well as fat loss, I’m really keen on putting a big emphasis on core development over the next 4 week program, so that come Christmas and New Years, not only will you be looking amazing in that little black dress, wooly Rudolph jumper or new years outfit, but you will have a strong, tight core, helping you stay injury free, with great posture and function. Topping off all that, is the fact that AT LAST, you’ll have NO reason to set ANOTHER new years resolution to lose weight, get fit and get skinny bla bla bla, as you’ll already be there, in seriously great shape! So when your friends are out trying to power walk their Christmas puddings off, you can smile to yourself knowing that you don’t need to do that!
.
So, here’s the details for the next program:
.
Day and time:   Monday and Fridays, 6.30-7.15am
Location:   St Aldhelms Church Hall, Spa Road, Radipole, Weymouth,
DT3 5EW
Price:  £40
Duration:   4 weeks
Start date:     Monday 11th October
.
Once again, I’ll be providing you with a full training and nutrition program. The program you’ll get is dependent on how long you’ve been on the program for, so will ensure you get great results. If it’s your first program, you’ll work through the Shift it protocols, if it’s your second you’ll work through the BLAST protocols, for phase 3 you’ll run through Program F, etc etc. You’ll also of course have access to me via telephone and email as often as you need to for additional support.
.
To sign yourself up, all you need to do is first off email andy@procisionfitness.com, and then head over to http://www.procisionfitness.com/fitness_classes.html and make your payment via PayPal at the bottom of the page in the Wake up and Shape up box, and that’s you all sorted ;-)
.
There’s also a little twist . . . .
.
If you’re someone who struggles for motivation during the week, needs a bigger kick up the ass, or just wants to train more, this will interest you: I’ve managed to shift a couple of things around and free myself up on a Wednesday morning until 7.30am, as I’ve decided that if there are enough people that want to train, I’ll run a 3rd session on the Weds morning, same time and place as above. To Salute your loyalty, this will only cost an additional £15 for those of you who wish to do the full 3 sessions per week. If you wish to do this, please email andy@procisionfitness.com letting me know that you want to, so I can confirm numbers and whether to run the additional session.
.
That’s all for now, so I’ll leave you to it.
.
Have a great week, and make sure you hit me back asap, as there’s an absolute maximum of 16 people allowed on this program ;-)
.
To your success
