Reaching your goals

The picture attached is Everybody’s Gym Trainer Adam at the summit of Snowdon (wearing the Everybody’s gym merch, of course). Adam climbed Snowdon with Everybody’s gym member Kate and they choose to go the second hardest route. After walking up into the clouds things got tougher…..the terrain was hard to navigate and the ridges harder to climb. The fog was thick and the visibility very poor. A few people started to turn back but the guys were determined to reach their goal of getting to the summit of Snowdon. After some grit and determination they finally made it!

We can apply this to our training too. When its gets tough you have to believe in the process and the end goal! The steps taken to get there may be difficult and there is no magic pill, but there are tried and tested programs to get you to your goal.

Tips on How to Start Doing Pull-Ups

If there is one question we get asked the most as instructors its – “How do i do a pull up”

Before we get into exercises to progress into a pull-up, let’s chat about some general strategies:

#1) This should hopefully be obvious, but the more you weigh, the more you have to lift in order to complete a pull-up.

If you’re truly serious about completing a pull-up, start by getting your diet under control.

#2) MAKE YOUR “PULL” EXERCISES A PRIORITY. A lot of people do every other exercise before doing any back-related exercises, if they do any at all.

After warming up properly, your first exercise should always be the stuff that you want to work on the most – in this case it’ll be your back muscles.

Until you get your first pull-up done, focus on the back exercises detailed in the levels and workouts below.

#3) The progression below is a path that works for most people, but does NOT need to be followed to a T.

I give sample sets and reps and when to move up, but if you feel like you can progress sooner or want to try doing full pull-ups sooner than I recommend, that’s OKAY.

This is the slower progression method, where some people will want to do fewer reps and progress to the next levels sooner – that’s okay.

What exercises compliment the pull up

Level 1 Pull-up Workout: Bent Over Dumbbell Rows

Level 2Pull-Up Workout: Inverted Bodyweight Rows

Level 3 Pull-Up Workout: Assisted Pull-Ups

Level 4 Pull-Up Workout: Negative Pull-Ups

Level 5 – Doing Your First Pull-up or Chin-up

training and personal training. Below are a

few reasons why having a personal trainer

could help YOU!


When you hit a plateau in your exercise routine, it can be hard to push through and stay motivated. A personal trainer can help you understand why you hit a plateau and find ways for you to work through it and see more results.


If you play a sport, run races or are looking to start. A personal trainer can get you on the tight track and give you the best chance to succeed.


Having a personal trainer to guide you through your fitness routine will help make sure you are spending time on the proper types of exercise. If you only have a limited amount of time to work out, a personal trainer will make sure you get the best results possible for the amount of time that you put it.


Most people have multiple goals when working out, the most common being fat loss and muscle gain. It’s often hard to find the right balance between these two, and a personal trainer can help you find the right exercises to achieve all of your goals.


A personal trainer will teach you the proper form and technique to use during your workout so you can stay safe and injury-free.

6 Benefits of Morning Exercise

A morning workout is a fantastic way to start your day – for multiple reasons. Getting your recommended 30 mins of recommend exercise each day can be difficult for many people. Between juggling family priorities and working your nine to five, you can always find an excuse to skip the gym. However, making it a habit to exercise right after you get up in the morning might just be the ultimate solution to keep yourself motivated.
We know that it’s tempting to snooze for as long as possible instead of getting up to hit the gym before work. But if you can make it a habit to get your daily exercise in before you get to the office, you’ll feel more accomplished, confident, and enjoy many health benefits.

Check out six amazing benefits of morning exercise below:

Established routine. Working out first thing in the morning is an excellent way to establish a routine. Once an exercise routine is established, you’ll be a lot less likely to skip the gym. After two months of morning workouts, you’ll be a pro!

More energy. Morning workouts are one of the best ways to feel energized and prepared for your day. In fact, a morning workout might even give you more energy than a cup of coffee! You’ll receive an instant energy boost and increased mental clarity that will lead to a productive day.

Better mood. Expect to feel happier after a morning workout. Breaking an early morning sweat will reward you with a rush of endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine – feel-good chemicals that will boost your mood and help zap stress. Plus, you’re guaranteed to feel happier knowing that you started your day with doing something amazing for yourself and your health.

Improved sleep. Exercise, in general, is known to promote better sleep. However, exercising in the evening can make it harder to fall asleep at night (as it boosts your endorphins). One study found that participants who exercised at 7 a.m. experienced deeper, long sleep than those who exercised in the afternoon or evening. Morning workouts are the best way to reap all of the sleep benefits of exercise.

Lower blood pressure. Regular exercise is fantastic for helping to prevent hypertension. As it turns out, exercising in the morning might be even better! The same study mentioned previously also found that early morning exercise is best for reducing blood pressure. Researchers found that those who worked out in the morning reduced their blood pressure by 10%, and this reduction of blood pressure carried through the remainder of the day.

Less stress. Doesn’t it sound lovely to walk into your office free from any built-up stress and tension? Breaking a sweat before work will lower your body’s cortisol levels (stress hormones). Exercise will also help relieve tension and relax your muscles, which helps to fight the negative effects that stress has on your body.
