Many technological advancements could be seen as offering more detriment to health than benefit.
That said, in my experience the right type of health technology applied to the right client at the right time can be of huge benefit.
But with so many different options available, where do you start when trying to find the perfect piece of health technology to help you not only monitor your health, but also improve it?
Fortunately, over the years I’ve had the opportunity to try out many different options, some of which I now use daily in my practice as I help others to achieve their health and performance goals.

Generally, Being stuck on the bottom with your opponent in Side Mount is considered a disadvantage.
Usually he’ll be in a far better position to control, strike and submit you – this can be quite intimidating when you first start out.

Coconut Oil has been used for centuries by the natives in many of the Tropical countries around the world and in more recent years it’s been rapidly growing in popularity throughout the western world due to it’s amazing health benefits and it’s almost unending list of uses.
Another interesting point to mention is that studies on these native cultures that consume large amounts of Coconut oil show decreased incidence of many of the modern illnesses and diseases experienced by those consuming more western style diets and that these native populations are generally in good health.

Often we hear that in order for our nutritional intake to be optimal, we should eat seasonally and ideally it should be locally sourced in order to ensure freshness and nutritional density.
That’s great advice but there’s rarely any indication of what vegetables are actually seasonal and with the fact that so much fruit and veg is imported these days, almost all fruit and veg appears to be constantly ‘seasonal’!
Of course, this isn’t the case. Here in the UK we’re only able to grow certain varieties of fruit and veg due to our climate and we now import anywhere up to 60% of our produce.
Because of this some of our ‘fresh’ fruits and vegetables can be anywhere from 6-12 months old. Particularly the likes of apples and citrus fruits.
So just how can you ensure your fruit and veg is actually fresh and seasonal?
This weeks F.A.Q. is a question I often get either just before or just after a new client signs up with me: When will I see results?
This is always a great question because it creates a perfect opportunity to begin the process of managing my clients expectations.
When I take on a new client they are given several forms and questionnaires to fill out to give me an overview of things such as what they’re after, what they’ve tried and where they currently are in their life and health so that I can design them an effective programme to get them the quickest, safest and most sustainable results possible.
One of the questions I ask is: Which type of progress is more important to you? Immediate progress which is less easily maintained or Maintainable progress that may not be as rapid?
Just this question alone gives me great insight into the type of personality the client has and their mentality towards achieving their goals. It also gives an indication of how ‘aggressive’ our approach may need to be in order for the client to be happy with their results.
