CITY WORKER GETS BUFF AT ONPOINT Posted 24th April 2019 at 15:54

The above pictures are of our client Iain Coxon. Iain enquired about personal training at OnPoint late 2018 and was met by Jay in his consultation. It takes a lot to walk into a gym, feeling like crap and having to admit you need help but he Iain did and hasn’t looked back since. What caused Iain’s health to spiral out of control was mostly linked to the nature of his job and the lifestyle that encouraged. Boozy lunches,... Read more

STOP BLAMING THE KIDS Posted 11th April 2019 at 20:40

WHY GYMS DONT WORK Posted 27th July 2018 at 08:55

In 2008, I joined the gym for the first time and fell in love with it. I was a lot younger, single, living at home and all that mattered to me was how good I looked as that impacted how I felt about myself. Some will say this is a bit shallow, but I wasn’t doing it for you. It was all about me! Fast forward 10 years and I’m now mid 30’s, married with a... Read more

10 REASONS YOU'RE NOT LOSING FAT Posted 13th July 2018 at 09:04

Lack of Consistency Fat Loss requires targets to be met, consisting of expending a certain amount of energy which may be more than you’re used to and controlling your calorie intake. Once we have determined the required value of both, we then need to stick to it to give the body a chance to adapt. But we’re naturally impatient!
