Why I Teach Pilates!

I have been teaching Pilates since 2000, it’s been around for more than 50 years, I love teaching it – it’s the best cross training format for athletes, sportsmen and gym bunnies.

It’s not too shabby for the rest of us mortals either great for building strong, mobile and balanced bodies.

It can help your rehab program, support good posture and keep you pain free.

Watch this little video – it was made by some media students from the local college about a weekly class I teach at Fitness4Less.

You should all try a class…..

If you’re local – my weekly schedule is –

18:00 Monday, Tuesday & Thursday Hayden Hill Studio
18:00 Wednesday Fitness 4 Less Cheltenham
1945 Monday & Thursday
14:00 Friday for Multiple Sclerosis. Elmscroft Community Centre

200% Money Back Guarantee – WoW!

What is my SMART System?
How is it guaranteed to work?
200% Money Back!? HOW?
Is it Expensive?


What is my SMART System?
S – Small Groups
After years of working in large studios, teaching any member that fancied dropping in to my class, never having time to find out anything important about the people in my group I’ve found a better way to ‘teach’ my clients –
Simply organise smaller groups.
Enough people to create a fun atmosphere, not so many that I can’t see how they are moving. I can really get to know everyone, offer alternative and adapted exercises where they’re needed and still motivate A multi level group of clients in every session.
Before you start my programs I like to meet you, set your starting point and agree some goals to work towards, establish a nutritional plan that fits with your lifestyle and give you results fast.
Individual warm-up prescriptions, pre-hab routines and recovery plans make these small sessions an effective alternative to personal training.
Private sessions for you, a training buddy or a group of friends are all available and easy to book simply with a text or email.

M – Metabolic methods to burn fat week after week, while shaping a lean, toned strong body.
Science led, never repeating, always challenging plans that activate the maximum amount of muscle possible to burn as many calories in the session and even more pounds of fat in between as possible.
You’ve probably heard of the “trendy’ HIIT, Bootcamp and Tabata style training. I began using this style back in 2009, since then the science has moved on, and my groups have tried most of it! In 2011 I qualified as a Metabolic Coach and now use the proven theory from these methods, but discard the many unpleasant and ineffective aspects to offer a guaranteed results, indoor, personal, customised fun formula with a FULL money back guarantee. No need for jumping or impact, no mud, running or freezing wind and rain!
Team this with my Nutritional coaching program to guarantee fantastic long lasting results with a 200% money back guarantee.

A – Anaerobic training replaces damaging, and as it turns out ineffective cardio. If you follow my blog http://www.jaxallenfitness.com you’ll have read all the research stretching back to the 70’s that shows that steady ‘fat burning’ cardio can’t permanently remove fat.
Well, to guarantee results, I offer well researched metabolic training methods that are fast, sharp but short, fat blasting, energising and completely do-able by everyone.
High intensity without high impact, effective cardio training without running or hours of boring, mindless stepping, rowing or treadmill. Studies show that focussing on and involved within your physical activity will help your fitness improve but also release stress too.

R – Resistance training using body weight exercises and a range of equipment to keep things fresh and challenging.
The best way to loose body fat, improve your fitness and turn back time is strength training.
You must either move your own body weight or use another form of resistance to overload your muscles and get out of your comfort zone.
We use resistance bands, loops, suspension trainers, power bags, medicine balls and kettle bells plus anything else I can invent or find to make exercises challenging, effective and fun.
The easiest way to ensure you drop unwanted fat is to swap it for lean, shapely muscle. Studies show that the ‘normal’ muscle loss that comes with age is NOT so normal- getting out of your comfort zone with resistance training ( weights, bands or body weight) will make the anti-ageing difference you’re looking for.

T – training that’s effective, challenging and guarantees results. I’ve been a health and fitness teacher trainer for over 30 years this experience puts me in an ideal position to select the right blend of exercises and duet advice for my clients.
There really is NO need to spend hours on cardio machines to shift unwanted body fat! If you’ve tried it you’ll be familiar with the weight that piles back on when you have a holiday or just miss the gym for a couple of weeks. That fast regain is a sure sign that your training plan isn’t working. Just like a fad diet will help you lose weight short term, as soon as you start eating normally again and the scales swing back again.
Follow my advise and you WILL drop pounds and sizes every month. Sign up and follow the nutritional guidelines too and I’ll give 200% of your money back!
I know that my system works every time, for everyone that sticks to it. I’ve been a Fatloss Coach since 2009 and have never had to return any money – I have many clients that are still training with me- not for Fatloss anymore but to maintain their healthy shape and lifestyle. Many attend Pilates or Yoga sessions and my educational workshop series to keep up with the latest guidelines and stay on track.

How is it guaranteed to work?
I’ve trained 1000’s of clients since 1983, have trained 100’s of fitness coaches since 1990 and now really enjoy having a select group of Fatloss clients ‘on my books’ and even fewer PT clients to focus on at any one time.

If you have a deadline or a goal to work towards, have realised that your current lifestyle and training program isn’t working you should get in touch, you can start anytime and start moving towards your goals.

If you’ve never exercised and you feel you’re not ready to just yet – you can join my nutritional coaching program first. I have clients that have had great results only following my healthy living guidelines. Private nutritional coaching sessions can be booked at any time to suit you – just like Personal Training slots. My regular Nutrition workshops can be a great place to start, you can meet like minded clients, ask questions and take away practical ideas, guidelines and plenty of support.

200% Money Back!? HOW?
Team this with my Nutritional Coaching program to guarantee fantastic long lasting results with an equally fantastic 200% money back guarantee.
How do you qualify for my money back guarantee promise?
Exercise – You stick to your training schedule – the one we agree before you start.
Diet – Choose to complete a short detox and or follow a simple diet plan then make a couple of changes to your nutrition every week or so to establish healthier eating patterns for life – NOT just as a crash diet.
I KNOW my system works, no conditions, no excuses… I’ve been a full time, independent coach for over 30 years and I KNOW what will work for you!

Fees – Cost vs Value
If you’re like me you’ve spent lots of money on gadgets and gizmos that you thought would change your life or organise your home that actually you very rarely use after the initial excitement wears off! A waste of money – bad value for money.

I know that we all want fast results, or at least results before our enthusiasm wears off!
My program costs less than personal training, that way you can train often enough to see results that keep you motivated and on track.
I’ve noticed that when you decide to commit precious time to something new, life just gets in the way and your ‘new’ routine flies out the window. So, I offer flexibility to help you keep to your training plan by mixing personal training and semi-private sessions to suit your busy schedule.
Results – Great results justify your investment in your healthy future – and so no waste of money – just great value.

Session Packs
You can use your credits for any service to suit you. If you miss your regular class you can share a semi-private session with a partner, training buddy or another member.
If not, you can book a personal training session to keep your metabolism revved up and great results coming your way.

Session Credits
1 credit – Any Fitcamp, Pilates & Yoga class
2 credits – Semi Private session for 2 – 4
4 credits – Personal Training session

Credit Packs
10 for £ 67.50 (@ £6.75)
20 for £120 (@ £6.00)
50 for £287.50 (@ £5.75)

Get in touch to meet me, visit the studio, arrange a Free trial session, set some goals and to commit to a new you!

2/13 Nutrition Lies That Made The World Sick And Fat – Calories

More Lies to banish from your thinking!

Super Seniors Fitness Solutions

2. A Calorie is a Calorie


It is often said that the only thing that matters for weight loss is “calories in, calories out.”

The truth is that calories matter… but the types of foods we eat are just as important.

That is because different foods go through different metabolic pathways in the body (14).

Additionally, the foods we eat can directly impact the hormones that regulate when and how much we eat, as well as the amount of calories we burn.

Here are two examples of why a calorie is NOT a calorie:

Protein: Eating protein can boost the metabolic rate and reduce appetite compared to the same amount of calories from fat and carbs. It can also increase your muscle mass, which burns calories around the clock (15, 16).
Fructose vs glucose: Fructose can stimulate the appetite compared to the same number of calories from glucose (17, 18).

1/13 Nutrition Lies That Made The World Sick And Fat – Eggs

Another thought promoting idea. These lies have been around for toooo long – almost as long as obesity, diabetes and slimming clubs ( that absolutely DO NOT work long term!) read on, let me know what you think…. Have a happy New Year xx

1. Eggs Are Bad For Your Health


Eggs are so incredibly nutritious that they’re often called “nature’s multivitamin.”

The nutrients in them are enough to turn a single cell into an entire baby chicken.

However, eggs have been demonized in the past because they contain a large amount of cholesterol, which was believed to increase the risk of heart disease.

But the truth is that despite being high in cholesterol, eggs don’t really raise the bad cholesterol in the blood. In fact, eggs primarily raise the “good” cholesterol (1, 2, 3, 4).

Despite all the warnings about eggs in the past few decades, studies show that they are NOT associated with heart disease (5, 6, 7).

If anything, eggs are pretty much a perfect food for humans. They’re loaded with protein, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals and unique antioxidants that protect the eyes (8, 9).

They are also an excellent source…

Six Pack Abs on Full English – YES Please!

Big Breakfast Diet Plan


This is a simple plan to follow if you love a good, full English! The odd protein shake and exercise hard at least 3 times a week. You will also be prepared to eat well within 90 minutes of waking up! If you train before breakfast you could double your fat loss!!

We now know that saturated fat won’t kill you but added sugars will – so this year my plans will lead you to freedom from sugar cravings, long term health, stable body fat and scale weight.

As day 1 of your plan is always a cheat day when you rest and relax, day 2 is a fast with as much exercise as you can fit in, you need to consider your exercise schedule to get your fat burning hormones working for you before you choose which day of the week to start on.

Days 3, 5 and 7 are always training days with days 4 & 6 are optional training days.

On days 3 – 7 you will focus on eating your daily calories, which I will calculate related to your current weight and body fat%, at breakfast time.

This plan will suit you if you don’t really care about cooking evening meals, are really busy through the day or travel a lot for work and never manage to organise packed lunches.

You will supplement BCAA and quality Krill oil regularly through the day to ensure you lose only body fat.

To qualify for this plan you must either be
A current member of my Smart Training system or
A member of my Facebook Fatloss Group

So, get in touch NOW to book an appointment to see where you are now and work out your daily nutrient targets.

Here’s to a Healthy and Happy New Year.

High Protein Low Carb Meals Ideas

High Protein and Low Carb Meals

All these suggestions need is a LOT MORE veg and you will be satisfied until your next planned meal.  Protein slows down the digestions rate of your meal and keeps you feeling fuller for longer.  You’ll  absorb about 20 g protein per hour so take your time eating and if you do feel hungry before your next meal use a high protein snack.
