A Total Transformation

I lost 11kg I didn’t know I had, my wife lost 4.5kg and proving the programs worth, other gym members have trimmed up heaps too but on top of the tightening waist lines, muscles grew and strength enveloped previous levels.

The training of the Amazing 12 ‘Express’ is not a bust-a-gut bootcamp or a daily 1 hour plus gym slog, just 35 minutes of a well planned optimal strength and conditioning program, and only three sessions a week. 

I’m going to say there was NO diet, because the nutrition side of the program was NOT a Diet. The nutrition focusses on optimal macronutrients for energy, recovery and adaptation. No low calorie suffering. Carbs, fats, proteins, fruit and heaps of vegetables are on the table. Processed foods and treats can be reserved for a weekly ‘cheat day’.

New year resolutions fail mostly because there is no plan or system, just a wish. 

The keys to success in this program and any program is being consistent to build new sticky habits and having support and guidance. The A12 program is set up to support each other throughout the 12 weeks at any time, even mid way around the weekly grocery shop when contemplating one product over another. 

The Amazing 12 Express continues in 2022 with bookings available now for free consultations and applications.

Another Amazing Transformation

It brings me great pleasure in sharing the graduation photographs and success of Bashier.

Bashier joined FitStrong in 2019 to add strength and conditioning to boost his mountain biking fitness. An untimely bike crash in Winter 2020 and a broken collar bone brought bike riding to a halt but that didn’t stop Bashiers gym time. Within a week of surgery Bashier was back in the gym, arm in sling and he followed a special program I put together for him to maintain his power and strength.

A year later, a new challenge arose when I introduced the Amazing 12 Express to FitStrong. Bashier jumped at the opportunity to lose some weight and gain some new endurance and skills. By the time of graduation Bashier had lost 7kg and added some new muscles too. His Squat 5 rep max became a 30 rep sub max, but 5kg heavier! His Pull-ups increased from a messy 1 to a strong 4 and his Bench Press 5 rep max increased by 64%. Remember that shoulder injury? Wow! All this with just three 45 minute sessions a week and having never touched a barbell before! So impressed is Bashier with the Amazing 12 that he has signed up to follow the program as soon as the gym reopens after New Year. I can’t wait to see what Bashier does next time. Great results to come. My next wave of the Amazing 12 will start early January. To learn more, head over to The Amazing 12 Brisbane.

Crawlebration Day 10

I’ve covered a lot of various crawls, transitions and such over the past 9 sessions. Today, I want to just focus on ‘just crawling’. Not limited by straight lines or a goal – just crawl. Imagine you have very limited space to crawl (maybe you are limited). How do you make up a 30 second crawl?

Just crawl in any direction, even play with writing your name with your crawl.

Check it out.

Crawlebration Day 7

We continue our exploration of all things ‘crawling’ with the interplay of two great crawls.

We’ve played with the Crab crawl and the Foot hand or Beast crawl. Fun galore is when we practice transitioning from one to the other. 😉

The Crab Crawl.

A couple of days ago we looked at setting the position of the inverted aka crab crawl. Let’s start moving it along.
