Failure to Plan, is Planning to Fail

If you train and you want to get anywhere, if you want to get the most bang for your buck, the best return for your efforts, then you really should have a plan in place, a plan that is individual to you, one that reflects your goals, where you are now and where you want to be and any road blocks that need to be overcome.

In the world of strength & conditioning a good coach will use a needs analysis, this will encompass a detailed analysis of the sport and the individual physical requirements of each athletes role, a thorough analysis of an athletes movement competency, a sports specific performance analysis, looking for an athletes strengths and weaknesses and finally the goals of an individual athlete.

This detailed needs analysis, provides the coach with a great starting point, giving vital information on exactly where an athlete needs to be, where they are now and any weaknesses that need to be addressed.

A plan is then created to systematically fix any holes in an athletes performance, giving them the best chance to operate at their absolute best.

Even if you aren’t an athlete and don’t compete in anything, if you are training, you are doing so for a reason, you are trying to achieve something, even if you think it’s just to get a bit ‘fitter and healthier’.

Give yourself the best chance at success, really think about what it is you want to achieve, what goals you hope to reach with your training.

Then when you figure out where you want to go, where you want to get to, work out where you are now and what you have to do to bridge the gap, what obstacles need to be overcome. What needs to be done.

If you can’t figure that out, find yourself a good coach, let them help you build a plan and get you on the right track, overcoming obstacles and ticking off goals.

If you work hard, make sure you work smart. Make sure you have a plan!

Real Results

In my mind I knew what I was doing. I was a keen runner and studied A level PE in 1994. What could anyone teach me?

I have known Nick for over 20 years but it was not until Jan 2013 that I decided to listen and take his advice. Because I had run and studied exercise I never thought there was much anyone could do for me. How wrong could I have been? I needed to lose a stone at least and despite my running could not shift it. Within a week of providing my current diet Nick had sorted a new diet and exercise plan to cut the fat. That is where the story started. I stuck to his plan to the letter and saw the visual results within a month.

I could not believe how my fitness had increased too with what seemed to me not much time spent on cardio! HIIT was the way forward. Nick continued to develop and manage my goals throughout the year with simple yet effective and easy to follow training plans. His knowledge of training plans and how diet and the body work to achieve results is second to none.

His flexibility to adapt training plans to what I have wanted is also a plus. In January 2013 I wanted to go back to running and tried my 1st 10k race for a few years. As a result of his training plan I managed 6-minute miling and finished in the top 100 of a 1000 strong field.

If you are in need of a switch and looking for some professional advice on weight loss or training plans then I cannot recommend Nick highly enough.

If you are committed about training and think you are achieving your best I would urge you to think again and consult Nick to take you a step or two further.
