Do what makes you happy. Life is too short to stress about where you think you should be. Just soak it all in and be grateful for each day. Be kind, especially to yourself. Accept that every training session isn’t going to be as ideal as you set it out to be – we are human beings, not robots.
If you get yelled at by your boss at work, your partner was annoyed at you, you’re having a rough day, you might not perform everything you set out to in your program that day, and that’s OK. Rome wasn’t built in a day, but a brick was laid every day. You have the opportunity to lay a brick that will build yourself into what you’re setting out to achieve. If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it, so track your progress. And if you’re unsure, get a professional to show you the way. Last but not least, walking to the gym is not a warm up 😉

PT Client Reviews
G. Fai Cheung
“What used to worry and put me off going to a gym and getting a Personal Trainer was the stereotypical trainer who was more interested in what he wanted me to do and how we looked. Safe to say that Josh is not like this at all. He is there to focus on us and what we want to achieve. I’m quite details-oriented; I like to know exactly how things work and should feel as I work through the exercises. Josh has been brilliant in his patience and explanation to support my style of learning and training. I have no hesitation in recommending Josh – I’ve recommended him to family and friends – as he has made me feel comfortable and enjoy going to the gym.”
“Walking into the gym for the first time with zero experience and feeling self-conscious, Josh helped me feel at ease straight away and explained how to perform the exercises in a clear way. He’s helped me learn proper form, when to increase the weight, and he’s given me confidence in all areas of the gym. Without the knowledge and guidance Josh has passed onto me through personal training, I would have not achieved the muscle gain I have. I would recommend Josh to anyone who wants to improve not only their physical health but also their mental health.”
“I feel like having Josh in my corner now to support my journey has taken my training to the next level. He’s given me the tools to be more consistent and given me a great goal to chase in Olympic weightlifting that ticks all my fitness boxes. He has even been a part of my big decision to change careers, supporting me to get my Certificate III & IV in Fitness so I can become a Personal Trainer too. Josh genuinely cares about his clients’ success; it shows through his attitude, professionalism and his choice of programs that best suit where you are at both in skill level and lifestyle. I would recommend Josh to anyone.”
