If you don’t turn up you don’t get results.

Hello and welcome to the first publication of my blog on fitness, life, banter , promoting myself silly and whatever happens to jump into my old head. I’ll try not to go astray and do my best to keep to the subject matter. Well ill try at least, ok?

A bit about me. I’m currently 46 year young and sometime behave like a 12 year old, really I do, just ask any of my colleagues and my clients. I keep things simple which allows me to get results and be understood. Why complicate something for the sake of impressing great people who are after results and a solid workout. Not a workshop. My background to my own training goes back to the good old days where I would just turn up and decide on the day what I was going to train.  Most likely chest and arms. Quite simply I wanted to get big, lean and look good for the ladies. In actual fact I was more interested in looking better than my mates for bragging rights as the ladies didn’t give me attention     ( feel free to pity me now) So after approximately 10 year of “ bodybuilding” type training I decided that I needed something else that wasn’t going to break me , actually see my neck again and take me onto my future years and be pain free.

And a little bit of that fitness stuff other people do would probably be ok.

This is where I took up traditional karate (Goju Kai) learned to move , and slowly over the years worked my way up the ranks by simply turning up, listening, training hard and making an effort to learn what was on offer. Basically I was the fellow who was always there chipping away, (over the colder months) not fast, strong or gifted. Just happy to be there, in fact by doing so I got to be respected by my peers and as a consequence was given some extra attention by my new friends which went along like this “we are sparring on Saturday, be there!”. In later years I followed the same process with Boxing at club level. Turned up, got fit, got leaner, and got to learn a little about the sweet science known as boxing. Are you following the pattern here? TURN UP! As a bonus my coach who knew I was a personal trainer invited me to participate in the coaching course and as a result I’m registered with Boxing Australia as a boxing coach. Oh yeah.

It was only when I began my professional career in Personal training that I realised that with a disciplined approach to traditional karate and boxing, what all the years of training did for me. It actually taught me how to be a better person/trainer that now operates as Claudefit. how? By listening, caring and knowing how to help others…..go figure.  And I thought my high kicks and sense of humor were enough.

Fast forward to now and how it affects my Approach on training you?

I simply listen to your needs and ensure that we prepare the body and mind accordingly in order to meet those goals.  Whether you are looking at losing weight, getting stronger, fitter or becoming more resilient for your chosen sport. I see myself as only a trainer that gets the job done.

Look forward in catching up with you soon. Our group is getting ready to tackle the future fun runs along with tough mudder and Spartan race. Let me know if you are keen.

One more thing before I go. Commit to your fitness program and TURN UP.
