At the GMB HQ, we have been so inspired by Sam Wood and his approach to health. He truly believes that health starts at home, cooking and food is a huge part of Sam and his families life. He prides himself on eating real food whenever he can, while also keeping it real. Find out more about Sam in his Q&A.
After being a trainer for 17 years and having developed some incredible relationships and seeing my clients achieve such wonderful results, I felt that I needed to find a way to help more people. The app makes this possible.
I started training not to lose weight but to gain it. As a skinny kid it was something I was very conscious of and when I started to gain that confidence I understood just what is possible with a strong mindset and how important it is to take care of your body.
I wouldn’t say always. It was something that I fell in love with when first starting out as a personal trainer and seeing the look on a clients face when they reached their goal.
I’m not going to lie, it is challenging. It all starts with setting realistic expectations and adopting an attitude of progress, not perfection. We try and move in some way for half an hour, every day. We eat well (most of the time) and most of all, support each other.
Lack of time, not knowing exactly what to do and lack of motivation.
In short, yes I do. Getting out of our comfort zone is where we discover what we are truly capable of.
For me personally, my daily walk with my lab Hendrix and Willow in the baby carrier is extremely therapeutic. It gives me a chance to switch off and clear my head.
Success is 1% luck 99% hard work.
