    Your program is going to be working so well, you’re going to stop doing it.

    "Your program is going to be working so well, you’re going to stop doing it. " Dan John (renowned Strength Coach) It’s in human nature to look for the next hit, fix or variety. I remember a conversation I had with HoH CoachFrantisek,he said ‘every time I see you training you are doing kettlebell front squats’ I said ‘I know I bloodyhate them’ Week in week out... front squats. The thing is over the course of that training cycleI got 3 sets of 20reps with 48kg. It’s not pleasant. I didn't really enjoy it. But I can do it, and I liked the progress. I started that cycle on 2x16kg Kettlebells for 3x3... so you can see ....

    Tom's Story from Inconsistent to Ironman

    2 Years ago Tom came to us to provide an answer topoor medical scores and a history of being inconsistent. He was ready to make a change. However, like all journey's the route wasn't straight forward. Tom didn't stop, or give up and eventually got to the point where he felt he could commit to training for a half Ironman! How do you achieve 6 days a week training, the lowest bodyfat percentage you've had since your teenage years and do this with a full time job, as a married man with 2 kids, and a social life (corona permitting.. ;-))?

  • Stop Chasing Pain

    Stop Chasing Pain

    Many of you may have experienced chronic pain or even niggles and questioned where an earth it came from. You may be at a loss on how to solve them. I interviewed Perry Nickelston a Chiropractor by trade but a pragmatic focused and non denominational health professional in practice. His insights in why we get pain are fascinating. He also takes about the narratives we repeat. Narratives of failure or success. Stories that can hold us back, becoming self fulfilling prophecies. I know podcasts are long form. But in a world of paper thing buzzfeed headlines delving deep into a subject may just be the medicine. ....

  • So You've Had a Bad Day?

    So You've Had a Bad Day?

    Recently I’ve had a spate of people applying for my programs booking calls or getting in touch and then either hanging up or being rude after my opening greeting. This has always happened but I’ve noticed more this month. I wonder why? Well it could be that I need to work on my greeting…ha! Look I’ve got a pretty thick skin with these things, if you run a service based business and you make calls to people who don’t know you occasionally you get people on a bad day. I definitely think that the lockdown took it’s toll. The first one had a definite end in sight… the we’re all in this to conquer COVID thing going on. Deep into our third ....

    Behind the Curtain

    There are great things that are happening inside our community, things that if you were part of could super charge your results. Thing is, and this is my mistake, you just don't know what is happening at Hounds of Health! We may as well be invisible to the outside world…and the consequence is that we are invisible to the people who need us most. When health takes place at home, who is there to see the high fives, pr's, drops in measurements and weight? I know you're exploring this website because something wasn't working and perhaps still isn't. You have an idea of what you want but what you are doing is not achieving it and the lockdown has interfered with your habits So you ....
