The title of this article is something which is on the mind of many people as they are heading to the gym be it for weight loss or muscle building, especially now summer is fast approaching!

This is our Pioneer Coach James McGreevy. His progress in changing body composition over the last 16 weeks has been nothing short of remarkable. Now you might be saying to yourself “I don’t want to be that lean” or “I don’t want to be that big” – that’s absolutely fine!

However, if you want to make a serious impact in the shortest possible time here are 3 tips you can use to make fast progress just like our coach James McGreevy.



Become Accountable

One of the golden rules on this is to make sure you are accountable to someone you have the utmost respect for and would couldn’t possibly let down. If you are only accountable to yourself then the impact of not obtaining your goal is much easier to swallow.

One of the most powerful examples of this I have seen was a single father who had been advised by his GP that he was at risk of developing multiple metabolic conditions & a shortened life expectancy as a result of his uncontrolled lifestyle. As you can imagine, this hit home hard. This would not only have a major impact on him, but more so for his child’s future. He then became accountable to child. 

Consistent Hard Work

This doesn’t just apply to your training – also making sure that your food is inline with your plan and you dedicate time to recover from training. 

Set Realistic Goals

Goal setting can be one of the most important factors in getting what you want – however many people look at this in completely the wrong way. You won’t wake up one day and have the same body as your favourite fitness model. However, you can make significant progress relevant to where your journey has started – body weight and clothing sizes are a great place to start!
