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
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...
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.
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.
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)
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
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.
You’re Not Really In Control
Our brains are wonderful things, when they work properly.
They say we have two voices/people inside each of us (some people I know maybe more ;-)).
Your brain and thoughts can make or break your success in anythin you choose to do.
Not sure if you are aware but your brain has two levels of function.
Things are either done at a conscious level or the subconscious level.
They are two very different mental places.
Subconscious (or unconscious) stuff is usually done without you realising it.
Like driving a car.
Ever make a journey and arrive at your destination and the journey was a blur? that’s because you were driving the car at a subconscious level.
And conscious stuff is the opposite, you are fully aware of what your doing.
Tasks can often pass from the conscious to the subconscious.
Again using the example of learning to drive, it starts at a very conscious level and when you improve it eventually moves into the subconscious.
Subconscious stuff happens kinda automatically. Without any thought.
The subconscious is responsible for any automatic responses or emotions that you suddenly experience.
Your subconscious just wants to be pleasured all the time, it’s like a rock star. It loves tasty food, alcohol, sex, drugs and anything which gives pleasure.
It’s out of our control and you would be amazed to find out that up to 95% of your actions may occur at a subconscious level.
That means you are NOT REALLY in control of your destination if the impulsive and emotional part of the brain is running your life.
I wanted to discuss this today because I see so many people EATING subconsciously.
They are not really aware of what they are doing/eating until afterwards.
And when the conscious mind kicks in – they feel guilty.
People get into that animal mode, and just HAVE TO satisfy that craving.
What can you do about this?
It is possible with the right attitude, information and support to learn what to do.
– I’m a big fan of counselling/hypnotherapy/NLP and its always worth a try.
– Meditation has helped me “let go” of stuff a bit easier, the breathing alone is a great tool.
– Practice positive thinking (its just like anything new it takes practice).
– Repeat an affirmation before bed and when you wake up. (an affirmation is a short powerful statement)
Something like “I posses the qualities needed to be extremely successful”.
It’s also very important to educate yourself and to start to realise WHEN something is happening at a subconscious level – be aware of your thoughts.
Look out for feelings of anger, fear, revenge, blame and envy these thoughts are like seeds and will grow and grow if you feed them BUT will die if you don’t.
Start to replace these thoughts with positive ones and put conscious plans in place to prevent this happening.
Plan your meals/days/life so your not “pin balling” from one emotional decision to the next.
They say “when emotions are high intelligence is low”, and I agree.
Don’t let your emotions dictate your life to you.
Don’t be bullied and bossed around by your mind.
People are either controlled by their mind or are IN control of their mind.
It’s your choice.
In the podcast I interviewed a lady who specialises in Removing, as she calls It, “peoples head trash”. Find it here.
You will love it and it will help you get rid of any self defeating thoughts and negativity.
Control your subconscious and you will control your life.
This week’s podcast discussed lots of cool stuff again, including weight loss, carbohydrate intake, vertigo, arthritis and knee problems, check it out.
