“At the start of this year I looked at myself and thought I really have to sort my priorities out. I have always been in relatively good shape but had let a holiday end of last year, then Christmas and other social events take over my usual routine of healthy eating and training, which left me looking out of shape. I had also lost a lot of motivation and was about to throw in the towel and embrace my new curves and then I realised that I was turning 40 this summer and as a PT I really needed to be once again an inspiration to my own clients and to get back to being the healthier version of me.

My partner and I were both on the same page and knew we had to do something together. We had both seen Olly Fosters posts on his online training and being a well known and respected name in the business we knew we were in safe hands.

The 12 week programme was easy to follow, the training was hard but enjoyable and the results do speak for themselves. The training pack you receive at the start has lots of information and is well laid out. For those who are new to calculating your macros etc the pack explains how to calculate them and makes it very straight forward for everyone to understand. You have fortnightly check-ins with Olly where he reviews your macros and training etc so you always know exactly what you need to be doing. There is also a forum on Facebook with old and new clients posting all the time so you never feel like you are on your own.

There was times during the 12 weeks that I did find it mentally and physically challenging especially in the last couple of weeks but you have to trust the process and just do as your are instructed and everything falls into place. Not only has the programme given me back my old body. It has taught me a very important lesson that you should never take things for granted. You really do have to work at it and you will get results.

With my 40th only weeks away I am exactly where I want to be and will definitely be continuing on with Olly as to have that accountability has been key to my success.

Thank you!”

“I cannot praise Olly and this programme enough. Before I started ART I had always been fit but had fallen into bad relationship with food, as a result I found my fitness levels decreased along with my confidence and self esteem. This programme provides everything to educate you about weight training and nutrition. More importantly it’s sustainable and doesn’t ban any food groups.

The support from Olly and the group are fantastic. I’ve not only got fitter, I’ve learnt about nutrition and I feel better than I have in years. My skin is clearer, I have more focus and sleep better. This programme gave me the focus and direction I needed in the gym.

I would recommend this programme to anyone who wants to improve their fitness and make a change for the better! ”

“The last 12 weeks have been hard work but brilliant. As a PT I am used to training most days,but having it fully prescribed,including tempo made sure I wasn’t within my comfort zone at any point. I signed up for this after I realised I had been trying to lose half a stone for a year…. and had made no progress!

What really changed for me was the diet – I really didn’t have any idea how many calories I was eating. Breakfast is a revelation – I used to make a fruit smoothie, or have oats, only to be hungry not long after. I no longer feel tired or lethargic after breakfast, and my digestion and bloating really improved. Courgetti with cottage cheese and smoked salmon is to die for! The recipe books were a huge help.

The support was also brilliant from Olly, Edel and Kim as well as the facebook group. Whenever I had a question Olly would invariably be back to me straight away, which I think is great service for the price.

I am itching to get started on Phase 2 and see what changes we can make!”

body transformation

RUTH

“So I was on holiday with my friend Alison who looked amazing and she explained about the programme she had done and I thought I would like to try it. I saw some of the other transformations and thought I want in on this ASAP so as soon as we were off holiday I signed up and that was when the journey began.

Don’t get me wrong there have been days where I have struggled food wise, but Olly and Kim and the Facebook group are always on hand to get you back on track. I definitely feel my mindset on food has changed and the days where I went off track made me feel horrible so always felt better getting back on the healthy macros.

The training has been great hard work/ intense and frustrating (only because someone is on the machine I want!!) I have done all the work outs 100% which has opened my eyes to different training in the gym especially weights. I always felt it targeted the trouble areas women struggle with being bum, stomach, and thighs.

The one thing that really helps is the 2 week check in and the tweaks Olly makes to your programme making it feel even more personal and worth the money. Who says an online PT doesn’t work.

I’ve never been the most confident with my body but I feel the programme has really helped and I don’t mind what I see in the mirror so much anymore and I’m pleased with the transformation pics :)) I feel like this is only the start as I still have some work to do so I’m going to keep pushing myself and will sign up for phase 2.”

“I don’t know where to start with this, as this whole 12-week experience has just been brilliant! I have always loved fitness and working out and cooking and nutrition however not quite known the right way to link it all together. After finding myself in a bit of a lull over the middle months of this year and having gained weight, (creeping up to over a stone heavier than I would have liked to have been) I was unhappy and so miserable about my overall appearance and weight. I couldn’t seem to pull myself out of this growing pit and after scrolling through social media and fitness websites I came across Olly and his programme.

I honestly couldn’t recommend this programme enough; it has completely changed my day-to-day life and overall happiness. I have absolutely fallen in love with the gym again, my passion for fitness is back and I now have the knowledge to aid and link it all together with the nutrition side of things. I also could not have done this without the Support of both Olly and Kim and the Facebook community. Having them on hand whenever you need them for a little motivational boost, or some useful tips and advice or just overall honest feedback and comments on exercises, meal prep and coping with the programme…you are never alone and I think that’s one of the best things! Yes, the working out, motivation and commitment is all down to you; Olly is not there shouting in your face – your best is whatever you give to be your best whether that’s total commitment or flaking in and out, its your decision to do this and you choose how hard you want to go. But I promise you, put in the efforts and you do see the results.

My mind-set has totally changed, I wake up early before work and get in the gym, or I come home tired from work but always have the energy for a session in the evening. I look forward to my meal prep days and taking the time to plan my food shops and what I’m going to eat the following week. By making it all exciting and fun, it takes away all the stress and it becomes part of your day-to-day living. I have learnt that weight is just a number, its how you feel on the inside that reflects on the outside. And feeding your body correctly makes you want to work harder and have the best outlook on working out. My journey may have only just re-begun, and I have new aims and goals of where I want to get to, but it’s certainly a lot better off now than when I started. It’s thanks to Olly and his team and the Facebook community that I can now continue with this positive attitude towards achieving my goals. Set targets and they will be met!!”

Olly Foster travel tips

5 Top tips on travel fitness | Olly Foster

Advanced planning is crucial when it comes to taking any trips away, business or pleasure. I have become a master when arranging my own trips but this is because I have learnt and adapted my methods over time.

Firstly, is your trip business or pleasure? If it’s business then there is no excuse for you to try and stay as committed as possible. If it’s pleasure then you need to decide how much you are willing to deviate off track. Personally I treat both the same, I do indulge but in a controlled way.

The environment is something to think about, most likely it will never be as convenient as home but you can get pretty dam close. I’ve had clients and friends say to me that it’s just not possible to keep on track when they are away. I do not accept ‘Not Possible’!  If you really want something, you can make it possible.

1) Taking supplements.

If you have decided to stay on point when travelling, then I would recommend you take all your required supplements. Personally I down size them all using tablet boxes and Tupperware, so I don’t have to leave any behind. Downsizing does mean taking them out of their original package, but I have travelled many times to many places and not once have I been stopped, searched or questioned about the supps.

As an example I would normally take; Whey, Creatine, Glutamine, Probiotic, digestive enzymes, Multi Vit, Fish Oils, Zinc & magnesium and a greens powder.

Always take one shaker that has a few attachables on it, such as a smart shaker. I load this up with a protein powder such as Peptide Fusion (fast and slow release) to take on the flight just incase, and to use as usual when abroad. MRP’s are quite convenient to take too as they take up minimal room and can be ideal when caught out in certain circumstances. Protein bars such as the Reflex Rbar are also handy and can be used a nice go to treat when / if needed.

2) Inflight food

I’m not a huge fan of airplane food and it certainly doesn’t fit into my diet plan, so I will always prepare food for the flight. I try to cram it all into just a couple of tupperware tubs to allow more room for a book, iPad and the essential water, which I purchase after I have passed security. Normally I will try to drink at least 500ml of water for every hour I fly, which helps reduce water retention and allows you to stay hydrated when arriving at what is normally a higher temperature climate. Just remember you can’t take liquids, therefore porridge is a risky one unless you make it stodgy, but generally I wouldn’t bother with it. Nuts are a great little snack to take onboard and munch on whilst watching some of the inflight entertainment.

3) Training

Before you head to your destination make sure you do your research to find a suitable gym to suit your needs. It is far too risky to rely on hotel gyms, and in my experience you will never get what you think you are getting from what they advertise. They are normally run down, sauna type box rooms that are kitted out with cheap equipment. With the web these days you can easily find something within a reasonable proximity to your hotel to keep your sessions on the same level. However, make sure you check if they allow guests and at what rate. It’s a good idea to send them a quick email and see if they can do any deals for you. Also make yourself aware of their opening times. A couple of times I have walked 30-45 minutes to get to the gym for 6am, only to find out it doesn’t open till 8am, not happy!

Another tip is to manage your training schedule before you fly. Depending how long the flight is, what time you fly etc. Do you really want to be training on the same day? Do you want that extra stress? Normally I would plan to take my flight day off and then hit the gym the next day at the new destination.

4) Hotel / Place of stay

To get the best out of your nutrition plan I would always try booking a hotel, apartment or motel that has a kitchenette. If not, see if they can provide a mini fridge and even a microwave, it’s amazing how much these can help, and on request I have always been provided. You just need to ask!

Once you have checked in, go hit the local supermarkets / grocery stores and get stocked up the best you can. This will reduce the need to eat out all the time and allow you to get your planned macro ratios for your set meal plans. If you do have to eat out all the time be sure to check the menus first to see if there are any decent options available to you.   If you find something that is reasonable but is drowned or cooked in something unhealthy then don’t be afraid to ask to have it cooked dry or keep the dressing / sauce on the side. Normally if it is a quality restaurant this will not be a problem and they will be very accommodating. However, if you are in doubt then a good trick is to tell them you are allergic to that particular ingredient and you bet your ass they won’t add it now. Nobody wants a potential claim on their hands!

5) Diet

Personally my diet changes when I travel. Normally I will have a fast / slow releasing protein shake for breakfast with a strong black coffee. I always train in the am and follow it up with a 2:1 carbs to protein ratio shake post training. From then on all my meals up to dinner will be mainly protein and fiber based. This allows me to indulge a little bit more in the evening at dinner, where I will follow something similar to the carb back-loading theory. This helps me stay on track but also allows me to be more flexible and accommodating to the company I’m with.

Anyway guys, this is just some basic information that I hope helps you with your travels. Any additional tips you may want to add please do, and remember preparation is key. ” Fail to Prepare – Prepare to Fail”
