SO! My latest project issssssssss:
• To be clear; what I’m asking you to do is; follow a template; it’s short, it’s sweet. It requires you to tell me what you eat, drink, how happy you are today, what your stress levels are like etc. Every night you send it to me and I’ll reply, every week and every month I will write personally to you about your week and month, setting mini goals that will turn into long term results.
• It will change your mind set around working out and eating. Seriously, you start to see how much alcohol you drink or how little you exercise, you start to assess things.
• This is NOT a quick fix, it’s not a weight loss plan, it is a “getting to know your body and how it works plan”
• This is not a pre-written booklet, this is me working with you and your goal (whatever your goal is; weight gain, weight loss, overall healthier eating etc.)
• At the beginning, we’ll measure you, fitness test you and take some progress pictures, over the year, we’ll assess them all. So, we’ll discover, if you’re over training or under-training, eating too many grains or eating too little protein etc. If your diet is perfect, but actually you’re not getting any fitter or leaner because you’re struggling with something in your personal life. If that happens (and eh… it does!) Stop beating yourself up, seek help or advice and then your mind will fall in line.
• The truth is though – it will require your trust. You’ll have to trust me, you’ll have to be honest with me, cause if you’re not; then really you’re wasting both of our time.
• What I will do, is be honest with you. If you’re working out 8 sessions a week and your pick at a few lettuce leaves, you need to hear that this is not gonna bring you any closer to your goals. Cause, come on; it’s not.
• Lastly, I would like to point out, I am not a therapist or doctor. I am a 28 year old woman, who will advise you based on my personal and working experience in the field of dealing with people and their bodies.

• If you are a personal training client here at The Gym Howth with myself or any of the trainers here, this service is included in your personal training packages - so register above and we'll get in touch with you.
• If you are a client at The Gym or a client in any gym or a client who does not have a gym, you’re more than welcome to do this too – welcome :)
•This is quite time consuming for me, but I do truly believe that this is the future - we need to understand ourselves and the awareness we have around food and exercise.
• I genuinely need you to commit to this. If you’re on holidays, you need to send the pizza’s. I need to learn about you. If you start this and after two weeks – think “It’s not for me”, that’s absolutely fine, but I’ll have already invested a lot of time into your case. So, pleaseeeee don't lead me on.
• I am not in the business of stalking people, so if a few days go by, and I don’t hear from you, I’m taking it as you’re not interested anymore. I’ll send you a template and you can copy and paste it and send it back to me every night – it doesn’t matter what time, just send it.
• Because of that; the minimum time-line for this is a 3-month subscription; In 13-weeks, we’ll have a good base line, but I’d encourage you to keep doing this for as long as you can – I know, I will be.
• The cost is €1 per day. And it’s weekly subscription based system.
