Fibromyalgia Documentary and Exercise DVD

Coming soon in 2016 is a very, VERY special DVD..With the support and funding from FMAUK, i have developed the worlds first home base fibromylagia personal training exercise DVD, This is the same graded exercise programme I use with my own clients, the same one that allows them to gradually build up the amount of time they spend exercising without causing flare ups,  so expect to see some great results.

As well as the exercise DVD, FMAUK and myself have created the UK’s very first fibromyalgia awareness DVD, which has seen me travel far and wide within the UK to get the latest insights into Diagnosis and treatments, as well as talking to some of the worlds leading professionals on the latest news.

Pain management routine

Hey guys, As you know I am Constantly learning and tweaking my pain management programs to ensure that i offer my client the best i can possibly give.

This month has seen me talk to a lot of very  renowned Researchers like Dr Perrin and Professor Jim Richardson, Which has given me a few ideas to implement into my pain programs.

I am asking for Two volunteers to take part in a new 6 week version of my pain management routine, to help me finalize  the program and figure out which parts of the program  work and which parts need further tweaking.

This of course will be free,and i will need to see you at least 2 times per week. Read more

Fibromyalagia and weight loss

*When dieting with fibromyalgia you have to be careful, too much of a calories deficit is going to cause a flare up, and to many calories is going to make things worse.

Many people with fibro try to lose weight by dramatically, cutting the amount of calories they eat. This only makes things worse. If you’re fatigued already and you’re not getting enough nutrients, the body is going to have an even harder time recovering than it already does.

A healthy weight loss goal for some one with fibro is 1-2lb per week; absolutely no more.

If you suffer really badly from fatigue I would probably go with 1lb loss per week. By consistently losing a small amount of weight we are going to avoid feeling lethargic and even worse than we already do, by still getting our nutrients but having a slight calorie deficit that allows us to lose the weight.

There is only one way to lose weight…the same way you put it on…..slowly!
