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.
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
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
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)
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
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.
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.
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.
Fantastic…I'm inspired as with all your emails
Selling It By The Kilo
I couldn’t believe they were selling it by the kilo.
I haven’t done it for years so I guess I’m outa touch.
I’m talking about Lego.
My son Louis is 5 and has just got into it.
So after about two or three weeks I realise this stuff is expensive or should I say, the sets are.
So I go online to look about for the best deals.
I was amazed to find lots of lego websites. Some where they were selling lego by the kilo some where KIDS were not even allowed ;-).
There are thousands of fully grown men out there – trading in lego.
They call themselves – dealers & collectors.
Some old lego stuff is worth a few quid, I saw a £45 set going for £300.
These guys inventory each piece.
Some people might think this is sad, not me, I think its pretty cool.
The internet is like that, full of little communities of like minded people all sharing their passion.
They really get into IT – whatever IT is for them.
Sharing advice. Sharing stories. Sharing what works and what doesn’t.
Helping each other get what they want.
I followed some of the advice given by these “lego geeks” and posted a “lego wanted ad” online.
Next thing I know, my son and I are driving around Swansea picking up buckets of people’s old lego.
What a response, we now have more lego than we know what to do with.
It got me thinking about our little community and how we do similar things.
Like minded people. Grouping together. Talking about stuff.
It’s human nature, it’s what we like to do.
The blog and the podcast are at the centre of our little community.
I’m a fitness and nutrition geek and lots of you are really into this stuff too.
A few thousand over 40’s are visiting the blog each month.
You are part of something special. We are part of something big.
This kinda stuff don’t happen everywhere. If you look around you will see quite the opposite is true. You could say society is falling apart.
It may sound cheesy but I really am trying to change the world for the better – or at least our little corner of it here in South Wales.
I’m doing the best I can with what I’ve got and I’m doing it in the only way I know how, through the medium of health, exercise and nutrition.
Sometimes I think of health and fitness as a kind of religion after all it is what I preach to the masses, it’s a way of life.
It has a set of rules/commandments (which I may attempt to write out one day)
Before I start to sound like David Koresh (he was a leader of a cult) I’d better wrap this up.
All I’m sayin is communities are good, they bring people together we are building a lovely virtual community around the blog thanks to your support.
And yes you are a little bit weird if you’re into this stuff because 90% of people just ain’t.
Is Juice Plus a healthy way to improve your health?
What causes pins and needles?
What is the best protein product to buy?
Are protein shakes appropriate for young teenagers?
PPS – I’m doing a review of everything I do at the minute from my training, nutrition and massage business right through to the blog and podcast and would like to hear your comments.
Seriously, I REALLY want to improve what I’m doing and I must be doing some stuff wrong(or could be better), and this goes for my PT clients as well as the readers on the blog. Please let me know what I can do to improve.
