I started working with Tony in November, to lose the remaining weight and work towards my goal of completing my first marathon. As an athlete he completely understands how to lose weight without it negatively affecting my training. In fact it’s only been positive.
The habits based approach works brilliantly for me psychologically – I don’t feel deprived at all, and feel like I can eat what I need when I need to. I have so far dropped 10lbs, but more importantly I have dropped body fat percentage and inches, and increased my lean muscle mass. I don’t feel like I’m on a diet, I don’t in any way feel deprived, for the first time I feel like I have a more healthy attitude towards food and body image, and my training has been going from strength to strength. On Sunday I knocked 5 minutes off my 10 mile personal best, and I’m sure that is a direct result of being 10lbs lighter and a lot fitter.
I can’t recommend Tony or this approach to nutrition and training highly enough, whether your goal is to complete a marathon or just lose weight.
"I've never been particularly fit so when I signed up for the Bath Half Marathon Tony really had his work cut out for him! As a working mum with 2 young children I didn't know where to begin. Tony was such a massive help, creating a training plan that was tailored to my busy lifestyle and advising me on nutrition. It was never about faddy diets, just sensible eating to keep your body going during those long runs. Using Tony's advise I managed to lower my body fat and increase my fitness to a level I didn't think I would be able to achieve. More than anything I really appreciated his encouragement, when I had questions he was always there to advise and motivate me. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tony to anybody!.
"Tony is a great running coach, with a heap of knowledge. Within minutes of showing Tony my technique, he was able to advise on exercises and drills to start working on. Already I can feel a difference and the only negative I'd have, would be not getting in touch sooner! Thank you."
