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.
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.
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.
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
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...
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
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
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.
This Is The Real Problem
I’m up early, the kids are still in bed.
My missis has gone to bootcamp.
I wanna get this email done because it’s half term and we are going to Cardiff to the “build a bear workshop”.
For those that don’t know, it’s a place where kids can build their own cuddly toy and mums and dads get fleeced for 50 quid 😉
My son is very excited as you can imagine.
It will be the sort of day where I will not be following my normal eating plan.
I will definitely have a coffee or two and will probably have at least one “treat meal”.
I could have anything like a pizza or a burger, with a few chips and a coke of course.
I tell you this so you know I’m normal, I eat bad food too, so do my clients.
The big difference is, it’s usually in context.
Today’s indulgence has been planned in.
Its not an emotional reaction to something bad that happened.
I knew we were going and I have planned ahead.
Planning your “blow outs” is the biggest change in many of my clients and a major reason for their long term success.
They move away from the destructive emotional and impulsive eating (AND drinking).
And they move toward stable planned “treat meals”.
Sounds boring but it’s not. It’s reality.
This approach allows you to live life and enjoy a good night out (without feeling guilty).
Without fear of putting it all back on. (I have one client who can put 7-10lbs on in a weekend)
I also know a lady who has lost 10 stone, the trouble is its the SAME stone she lost – ten times.
It’s not even a joke, I wish it was.
For most people losing the weight is not the major problem.
The problem is – KEEPING IT OFF.
Anyone can lose weight, but why is it only some people can keep it off FOR GOOD?
I think it’s down to your approach and mindset, amongst other things.
My clients, via my programme with help and support learn HOW to do it & WHY they should do it all.
Then it’s up to them.
I can’t tell you exactly how to do it ALL in an email, but I can tell you this my friend…
You need to restructure your life, do the nice treat things a little less often.
You need to start to learn how to cook a few TASTY & CLEAN meals.
NO ONE can eat and drink what they like and not suffer consequences.
It requires willpower and self discipline.
It requires you to go more than a week without a blow out or binge.
It requires you to learn what happens to your body when you eat different meals at different times.
It requires you to realise how good you feel when your “on the diet/healthy eating bla bla bla”and how bad you feel when your not.
It requires a you TO WANT to feel good and NOT to feel like crap anymore.
If my clients have a “special occasion” coming up they will have a good run up to it.
Usually they would have been 2-3 weeks eating clean between major indulgences.
This switch in approach is a BIG key to permanent change and keeping it off – in the LONG TERM.
This allows my clients to have a few drinks and eat a bad meal every now and then (and bloody enjoy it) and know the wheels are not going to come flying off.
Give it a try.
