She Had Lost Her Way
I had lost my way training wise after the death of my beloved older brother and was struggling with stress and anxiety. I joined one of Richards groups and...I haven’t looked back since. I feel fitter and happier than I have in a long time and I’ve also lost inches and pounds.
What I really love about Rich is he says it like it is and he cares for his clients. I can be a bit “gung ho” when it comes to training and Rich reins that in to make sure I stay fit and uninjured. Richard has changed my life for the better and that’s no exaggeration.
Not Confident After Knee Injury
You helped me a great deal after my knee injury as I was not confident in doing any exercise incase I aggravated the injury. The exercise plan you did for me was great, very simple but effective. You were also very encouraging and very good at motivating me. Thanks
The Greatest Bit Is Me
Having been quite seriously ill and knowing a few of the girls who have been supported by Rich, it has taken my nearly two years to join his program. (Due to ill health)
I am just coming up to my first twelve weeks, have lost weight, changed body shape but the greatest bit is me! How I feel and my mindset. Having been in a wheelchair back in October. I am back to my old self ...and have never felt happier than I do at the minute. My sessions with Richard are ...my treatment to save my life whilst having fun, through hard work with the great support from Richard covering what to eat, how to exercise tailored specifically to me. He even listens when I am I want to let off steam! What more could you ask for...
Motivational, inspirational, encouraging, knowledgeable, caring, fun loving, thought provoking are just a few of the words I would use to describe the huge personality that is Richard Clarke. If you decide to follow his advice you just can't go wrong. Cynthia Davies
Following Motorcycle Accident
Following a motorcycle accident, Richard Clarke sped up my recovery by taking me through a rehabilitation programme. Impressed with his professionalism and knowledge, I then took part in several 3 month fitness programmes...looking back, one of the biggest benefits was how Richard analysed my diet and changed it for the good...this knowledge is priceless. Thanks Richard.
Had Many A Chuckle
I have had many a chuckle at some of your comments and stories but also appreciate the underlining message…I love your shot from the hip approach it's refreshing. Keep up the good work :0)
Taking Less Medication
Started with Rich around 10 weeks ago, during that time and by following his advice I have lost over 3 stone(42lbs)!! Having had arthritis for very many years which resulted in a double knee replacement and taking a ridiculous amount of tablets daily for this condition I am now taking a fraction of the amount prescribed by my G.P. My G.P. can’t get over the change and is very impressed. I would certainly recommend Richard to anyone.
I Trust Him
Ah, what can I say about 'darling Rich'.......He lights up my Tuesday evenings, and my Saturday mornings!
It's only half hour - 40 mins, and goes by like a flash. After a session with Rich I feel like my batteries have been charged...
He's such a nice guy, gives me advice, guidance and plenty of encouragement. His daily e mails are informative and fun. I have learned about nutrition and fitness. He has a wealth of knowledge.
What I particularly like is that I feel comfortable in his gym...and I trust him. He has helped me reach my goals.
Fantastic…I'm inspired as with all your emails
Richard Helped In So Many Ways
Richard helped me in so many ways, even though I had many ailments, he helped me to believe in myself, weight loss, his recipes are delicious, didn't feel like I was on a diet, just healthy eating, but most of all Richard is very inspiring and often if I was having a bad day you could guarantee I would walk out of the gym smiling. Thank you Richard x
Hadn’t Done It Since School
I have been writing an article for the Western Mail this week.
It’s for a big drive the Welsh government are having at the min all to do with “health and well being checks for over 50’s”.
The initiative is being developed to help support and empower people over 50 to have greater control of their health and well-being.
This is music to my ears.
As you hopefully know by now, Welsh people are in a bad state.
We are getting older and sicker as a nation.
45% of 45 year olds being either overweight or obese.
The government have taken the stance that we need to take personal responsibility for our health.
I agree in part, but I think they have to also take responsibility themselves especially for the bad nutrition advice they have given over the years. (the food pyramid and diabetic diets for example).
That’s not to mention the food industry which they legislate/don’t legislate.
They have even suggested to go as far as refusing people operations if they are too unhealthy to benefit or there will be no major benefit.
This may seem a bit harsh but I think it’s spot on.
Some people just abuse their bodies and expect the NHS to pick up the bill.
Those days are over.
However this will (as my wife pointed out to me) affect some of the most vulnerable people in society.
I was talking to a chap in his mid 50’s the other day.
He told me he hadn’t done any form of exercise since he was in school.
He was in a terrible state.
He was overweight, had diabetes, high blood pressure and gout.
This guy was like a train crash waiting to happen.
It’s not a matter of if he will get sicker, it’s a matter of WHEN.
These over 50’s health check are there for people like this man.
If you or someone you know and love have poor health see your GP (the husbands tend to be the reckless ones with their health).
So my advice this week is get yourself checked over by the GP and start to RECLAIM your health.
All GPs have access to exercise on referral schemes and can refer you to a specialist for a 12 week low cost exercise programme in the local leisure centre.
This week on the podcast we have a VERY CONTROVERSIAL topic
Mercury amalgam fillings.
Those nasty black fillings have been deemed toxic to human health by doctors worldwide and they are about to be banned across many countries in the world – EXCEPT the UK.
I feel it’s my duty to bring this stuff to your attention.
We have a 20 minute interview with Dr John Anderson from Neath. (who happens to be the UK’s leading expert in mercury removal)
We talk about the dangers of mercury fillings and what you can do about it.
