My 2nd Book is Now Published!   It’s an indescribable feeling, publishing works you have spent countless hours on. I really enjoyed writing this book, taking the pictures and making the videos, and it has been amazing to see my publisher put it all together… They do an unbelievable job!   Years spent as an [...]

Combat Conditioning

The Combat Conditioning classes at 5S Fitness Macclesfield are already a huge hit! People seem to love hitting things, so we added three new classes that involve exactly that... Hitting the pads and bags - Combat Conditioning! The gym membership is growing every day, so I have my eyes set on taking over the upstairs. [...]

Corporate Events – Posture Workshops

By |2019-02-06T14:49:42+00:00January 16th, 2018|Categories: Blog|Comments Off on Corporate Events – Posture Workshops

Had a great afternoon with Bollin Green Telemarketing, working on posture and the maintenance of structural health while working a desk bound job. Proper movement is key, and of course, it needs to be realistic and sustainable. I am now available for corporate events... I work through key chapters in my book "Fix Your Posture" [...]

Really happy with how the Fix Your Posture book launch went, got best seller in Amazon in a few categories. My 2nd book Strength & Mobility Exercises For Runners has been full edited, and is currently in the process of being formatted ready for publishing. Blue is by far my favourite colour (as you can tell by the [...]

Strength Classes at 5S Fitness

By |2019-02-06T14:49:42+00:00January 10th, 2018|Categories: Blog|Comments Off on Strength Classes at 5S Fitness

I am really happy with how the strength classes have evolved at 5S Fitness, Macclesfield. The strength classes started as set workouts where we had everyone work on one lift. For example, "today we are working on the back squat". However, it soon became apparent that this system wasn't the most effective when people trained [...]

Almost There With Book 2!

By |2019-02-06T14:49:42+00:00January 9th, 2018|Categories: Blog|Comments Off on Almost There With Book 2!

Been working hard on my 2nd book, which deals with strength and mobility exercises for runners. Prior to setting up 5S fitness (a strength & conditioning gym in Macclesfield), I was an Army Physical Training Instructor in the infantry for 6 years. As you can imagine, during my time in the military I didn't get [...]

Conditioning Classes at 5S Fitness

Had quite a few people come across to us from other gyms this new year. The feedback we always get is that we are much more intense than other gyms in Macclesfield, and that is something we pride ourselves on. The body reacts to intensity... If you want to make changes to your body, you [...]

By |2019-02-06T14:49:42+00:00January 8th, 2018|Categories: Blog|Comments Off on Biggest S&C Gym in Macclesfield

Had some great meetings today at 5S Fitness Macclesfield. Our aim is to take on another 1500sq ft upstairs in our current gym. Having the upstairs will allow us to double the amount of evening classes we run and more than quadruple our capacity! The upstairs will consist of conditioning (circuits), pad blast sessions (hitting [...]

New Year at 5S Fitness

Had a great first week of 2018! Lots of new faces in the gym in Macclesfield... Hopefully it will get busier and busier. We are playing with the idea of running strongman/woman classes through the week and also introducing pad based conditioning - striking pads and bags. In the future, when we take the upstairs [...]

The Deadlift

By |2019-02-06T14:49:42+00:00January 8th, 2018|Categories: Articles|Comments Off on The Deadlift

The deadlift is the king of the hinge and pull movements, and is the key to the development of strong, powerful hips. It should be noted that injuries are not just a matter of technique or poor form. Regardless of whether you lift correctly or not, if your soft tissues haven’t got the strength to [...]
