General Health

This category covers as many aspects of methods of improving general health & well being as possible. Easy tips and guidance that are simple but effective whilst explaining and clarifying the aspects of FAD's/rumours and why they don't work.

Shhh...DON'T tell anyone

Shhh...DON'T tell anyone










‘‘I can’t tell anyone that’s the real reason!’’


Fear of the unknown

Lack of confidence in our own ability and knowledge

Huge amount of self-doubt

Experience of being judged negatively in the past

Uneasiness with our appearance

The fear of looking stupid and be made a fool of in front of others


These are some of the primary reasons why people avoid exercise all together!

These are just some of the thoughts that rotate around pretty much everyone’s heads far too often when it comes to looking to actually.  

The unfortunate thing is, when an individual is asked why they haven’t started to improve their health or join a gym in attempt to make progress…

Next to nobody is willing to hold their hands up and say….’’I’M SCARED!’’


Despite it being the main driver behind people avoiding making progress, it’s almost like ‘’the right’’ thing to do is keep to ourselves and not openly say a word to anyone about it!


We think that ‘’nobody else feels the same way I do’’ so I can’t say anything.




Let me set the record straight for you right now…EVERYONE looks for acceptance!

(read that again)


Studies show that we ALL base decisions on EMOTION!

We DON’T make decisions solely on LOGIC!

That’s not just my opinion…that’s PROVEN science of human behaviour!

Whether it be you throwing thought’s around in your head such as ‘’I’ll look different to everyone else’’ or ‘’people will know I have no idea what I’m doing’’ or ‘’everyone else will look better than I do’’ or ‘’I’ll get laughed at’’.

Let me tell YOU this right now…




You might not think you are, but I can guarantee that you know something about exercise, nutrition, healthy recipes or something health related that nobody else does!

The reason that you need someone else to tell you that is solely down to self-doubt, which everyone has!

Unfortunately it’s now became common place that that’s how people feel about their own ability, appearance or knowledge!

The fact that you’re reading this article proves that you’re actively looking for guidance; you wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t!

I’m pretty damn sure that I’m not the only coach or nutritionist that you follow or take in information from either!

The fact you’re in the mind-set where you’re actually looking to change is HUGE factor towards success!


Not everyone can sit-back on an evening, put their feet up and honestly say that!


Trust me, you’re doing ok!

(read that again)


Bear that in mind next time before your make excuses, avoid or procrastinate actually getting started.

This is simply something that I want to help clear up for people. Far too often this subject is swept under the carpet when the job of a good coach should be to give his client the confidence they need to move forwards, NOT simply a programme an hour of their time!


I’m not going to try and sell you anything don’t worry, forcing somebody to do something they don’t want to do is pointless.

IF and ONLY if YOU feel like you genuinely want or need help and guidance, I’ve placed the coaching application form below.

Take care,




P.S. If people staring at certain parts of your body or your ‘’target areas’’ is the problem, EVERYONE makes a first impression based on EYE CONTACT and it’s the first place people always look whether you’re aware of it or not!

Again, this is proven science, not just my opinion.

Jesus, it's purple...

Jesus, it's purple...
This ones a bit off subject,
It's not about weight loss
It's not about personal training
It's not about nutrition
This about something much more important
Today is PURPLE DAY!!!
A lot of you probably won't know what that is...
It's kinda new.
Today is officially an opportunity to support care for epilepsy
(A condition that I personally have and understand well)
It's something that's close to my heart
Having seen and dealt with the in's and out's of it
It's something than can and does take complete control.
Often of peoples lives, abilities and their friends and family at times.
There is often a stigma attached with it
(which in my opinion is unfortunate and inaccurate)
However, myself and everyone affected by the condition would greatly appreciate your support.
Treatment can often be very complex and long-term
(for some people treatment is often for a lifetime)
I don't expect everyone to donate,
Unfortunately, some people tend to dodge the charity boxes
Which is strange,
(especially when a donation can be less than the cost of a coffee)
For those of you that don't fall into that category
For those of of you that are willing to support the condition,
I massively respect and appreciate you for it.
I have a placed a link at the bottom for you.
Thank you for taking the time to read this email
I greatly appreciate it.
(as do a hell of a lot other people surrounded/affected by epilepsy)

Thank you in advance,
Graham Lawson

BTW. Please don't be one of the people that thinks to themselves that they'll donate next time.  You know fine well you've most likely been saying that for far too long now.
