Richard P made it – at last achieved his goal of completing the Etap du Tour at the age of 60.

Emma  – Many thanks – made it ! Thanks in no small part to your excelRichard Plent programme and cajoling. Hugely appreciated.  Col de Joux Plane 11.9km at 9% was a struggle at the end of the day. The 3 of us 60yr olds were all between 7.5 and 8hrs and everyone got round safely on a hot day.  Now to think of the next challenge !“

 

Hope you enjoy the attached You tube and pic !    Very best wishes  – Richard”

ysical confidence. I am absolutely sure that if it had not been for your input, I would not be in the significantly improved physical state I am in now.  In case you need reminding, you are incredibly good at your job and I am so grateful and happy that our paths crossed, albeit for a second time!

This is an excerpt from a lovely client of mine – Emily Davidson.

Emily is an avid sailor and came to me a year or so ago after having had intensive physio for a back issue.  She had had a herniated disc in her late teens and has had a partial discectomy, way back then.  A year ago this was bothering her again, and led her to further scans and pain management etc, and a fear that she would not be able to achieve the family goal of sailing off into the sunset on their yacht was causing concern.  Anyway the decision was not to operate, but to learn to manage this – her journey started with some physio and then we looked at her posture and the way she moved in life and around the yacht, which led to a year of hard work.  The journey was probably helped by the knowledge that I have of sailing and the conditions that she is likely to encounter out there, a huge part of many peoples journey is regaining the “belief that they can do it”.

So here we are she has reached her goal and has now set sail for an amazing adventure with her husband Tom and two kids aged 7 and 5.

Sugar Tax in South Africa….Already came into the UK in March …

Awesome – finally a sugar tax …. and in South Africa – a country that produces sugar that is at risk for being accused of upsetting a national trade.

Sugar is one of the main sources of fuel for bacteria and disease aside from the fact that it is the main contributor to obesity and all its side effects.

FACT: You cannot reduce fat/obesity by exercise alone, but you can by dietary intake – you have to watch what you eat to stay healthy.  Exercise keeps you fit and strong, nutrition keeps the balance of fuel right.
