All you need to know

before your first go...












Thanks for booking in to see us @ More-Athletic Body...don't forget to actually show up now!

We're based in Le Meridien Piccadilly (erm, see above).

  1. Find it
  2. Romp in the main entrance like you own the place
  3. Take the stairs on the right and follow the signs down to the health club
  4. Tell the reception staff you're here to see Tom, they will arm you with towels and tell you where to go
  5. Get your gym pants on, and get pumped up ready for action
  6. Come and find me and my mats

I am looking forward to meeting you, to putting you into strange positions and to making you do things you don't necessarily want to do.

It's going to be a splendid time.

Here's a bit of a primer before your first class, but fear not, I know I'm boring and you only need to read it if you want to, I'm gonna tell you some stuff...

--> like our ethos
--> and where you can find the programme online
--> that you can take two classes back-to-back if you fancy it
--> which class is which
--> and of course, I'm going to tell you all about our 28-Day Fat Loss Challenge












Come for a good time -- of course, I take my exercise and programme planning far too seriously, but, I'm mainly here for a good time. So should you be.

There's nothing to fear here -- how bad could half an hour possibly be?!

We normally train on the fancy mats -- (pictured below) unless there's a bloody tourist in the way.











Train in socks or barefoot -- it works better on our mats and you'll be stronger on our one-legged squats. Or just train in trainers if you want to. It's no big deal.

Any issues or questions, email or TEXT Tom (please) -- 07792959096

You can use this programme to get the body you want -- I welcome loads of folks for a one-off session, but, I also have loads of regulars who use my classes frequently and the online programme to develop a tailored plan. If you enjoy your classes, ask me how you can train more effectively for your body goals.

When we finish -- I might ask you to make a swift exit as these classes run back-to-back so I can offer as many slots possible... it's a quiet personal training space so I just have to be careful not to over-crowd. I've been running the classes for three years though and it works well. I usually work you so hard you can't wait to get out! If the gym is quiet you're welcome to hang around and stretch for a few more minutes after the class.

Stuff that's included -- Towels. Shower gel. Water. Lockers. We got all that stuff.

Stuff that ain't -- unfortunately, we can't offer you use of the gym (except for when you're in the class of course, otherwise it would be really silly), nor can you use the pool or steam room (sorry). It's a bit of a fancy hotel and I bring far too many people in.

You'll be with me, Tom -- the gym reception staff will show you where to find us, but here's a picture so you know who you're looking for...











More-Athletic's on the map!























You see, in our classes, everything we do do is about getting you abs. Getting you so lean and toned that your abs become toned and sculpted.

Traditionally, I've always done a poor job of hammering this fact home. I've set out to change this by reminding people over and over again that fat loss is about food and resistance training.

The over use of 'cardio' is on the wane, yet too often it's still the irrational choice of many, or we still pander with 'HiiT' classes.

But for the most part: Fat loss is about food. Exercise is something else.

So let's make it clear, if you want a great body, it's about food and resistance training.

That's what we do:

Short, sharp, resistance training sessions designed to be done multiple times per week.

That's how you get a great body, and I've set out to prove it over and over again with this challenge.

If you want a slim, sexy, sculpted body and don't have hours and hours to train each week, you need to delegate all of your fat loss to your nutrition.

Then, when you train, you train for strength, performance, health and fun.

If you're busy, if you're stressed, then it's all the more important.

The nutrition will take care of your fat loss (hard truths and all).

The frequent short, sharp bouts of resistance training ensures that most of the weight you lose is from fat, not muscle...thus you get a great shape.

That's how you get an amazing slim body.

Hours and hours of cardio: Poor choice. Weak weapon. Hard to maintain. Ineffective unless you're very fit AND lucky.

Fat loss: food.

Looking good: resistance work.



My goal with this challenge is to find suitably motivated folks who want to get:

--> More toned, firmer, leaner, better shaped legs.

--> Flatter, sculpted, visible Abdominals and Obliques

--> Shaped, curved backsides

--> Better, more defined arms

...all in the most efficient way possible: with food and resistance training.

So if you have a wedding, a holiday, (or maybe a summer) coming up...maybe you should take the challenge?

Snap up on of our intro deals, read The Success Guide and get in touch with me to set it up!











I'm one well researched and opinionated fellow. Here's some principles that are at the heart of what we do @ More-Athletic Body. These are abbreviated, you can read more here if you've nothing better to do.

Fatigue is NOT the goal -- getting a better looking body is. Fatigue is a side-effect. Sometimes necessary, sometimes not.

Fat loss is about food and resistance training -- NOT cardio and not seeing how many HiiT classes you can do.

Always train with the Gymnastic Mindset -- because quality matters and reps mean nothing without taking the exact quality and technique into consideration.

See training as a practise -- not a slog

Strive to be a consistent minimalist -- if you have the body you want, you should first become an effective, consistent minimalist, then (and only then), consider longer workouts.

The danger of 30-minute sessions -- if you expect to be completely blasted or if you place too much emphasis on what happens in any one session, thirty-minute classes may not be for you. It's about how much better you can get over many workouts, not what happens in any one session that matters. Making you work harder is EASY, but not the absolute goal on your first visit. (You'll probably be knackered anyway to be honest).












Wow, thanks for reading all that. You must be very bored by now.

Any questions before or after your class, shoot me a text on 07792959096.

Enjoy your class and thanks again for trying it out.
