Dani’s LA Training Blog Results: My 6-Week Results Are Incredible

It’s DONE! The team photoshoot was finished in a flash. Six weeks of all that planning, measuring, tracking, and shrinking…and it was over in a split second!

U.P. Training Diaries: Cath Tyldesley talks hormones, dieting and training during her period

Keeping Hormones on the UP! Wombs… the almighty power of being a woman. But also an almighty pain in the ass (or vagina, if you will). Ever since I can remember, my periods and hormones have been slightly ‘Jekyll & Hyde’. They’ve definitely made up their own rules since I had my son Alfie. I’m […]

This is the lightest I’ve been since I was a teenager: Dani’s LA Training Blog Week 5

T-minus one week to go! I’m writing this on the Saturday night before the photoshoot. I’m a little nervous. Have I done everything right? Could I be leaner? Could I have trained harder? Did I take too long resting in between sets? Did I take one too many spoonfuls of nut butter when I was […]

Kevin McHale’s Blog: I actually have abs now!

Sacrificing strength for feeling leaner, fabulous and feminine is tough: Dani’s LA Training Blog Week 4

I’ve never been this lean – my abs are showing!: Dani’s L.A. Training Blog Week 3

I feel different. Being at this bodyweight is not new to me. I’ve cut weight for powerlifting competitions before, and even competed under 60kg a few years ago. Sure there was some dieting involved then, but it was primarily a ‘water cut’ so that I weighed in under 63kg. Getting shredded and lean has been […]

Everyone has their own motivation for going to the gym, whether it’s purely for aesthetic reasons, for better health, or simply to set a good example for their children. My main motivation? I like being strong, and I’m competitive. That hasn’t always been the case. I’ve been ‘bigger’ in the past and it made me […]

I already have the best body of my life after 6 weeks: Kevin McHale’s Transformation Blog’m almost halfway through my 12-week program and to say things have changed would be a gross understatement.
