The confusing world of supplements. What I choose to take, what I recommend and why.

Summer Six-Pack: The Fundamentals

Summer Six-Pack: The Fundamentals

Firstly, the goal of a summer-six pack is deceiving. It should be the 'summer-and-foreseeable-future six pack'. Don't start a diet or an active lifestyle that has an expiry date. Sustainability in both Diet and Training are key…  

LAGOM. The art of balance

LAGOM. The art of balance

Last weekend I was invited away to The Grove just north of London as part of a Fitness-Group to test drive Volvo's newest edition the XC40.  Being a Swedish brand, the mantra or theme of the car –as well as the weekend– was the Swedish term ‘Lagom’.

The Killers in your Kitchen

The Killers in your Kitchen

Whenever I chat to friends and family about this topic, they initially look at me like I’m a tin-foil hat-wearing conspiracy theorist. Especially when I tell them half the things in their kitchen and fridge are out to kill them - or at the very least - mess with their intricate inner circuitry of happiness, sex drive and resulting physical characteristics...

THE BIG FAT CONFUSION: Tim Blakey

There is still a lot of confusion surrounding fats, which types are healthy, which are not and what their various roles are.

The confusion is not surprising given the current state of competitive media and newspapers all vying for the most polarising headlines and click bait. The purpose of this article is to give a brief explanation of what Omega 3s are and why all Omega fat supplements are not created equal. But first, let’s cover the basics..

Helen made exceptional amounts of fat-loss on her PR1MEBODY journey.  The approach of her wedding day was the perfect fuel to her fire.  In total she lost close to 10kg by the big day.

PR1MEBRIDE: Eve

PR1MEBRIDE: Eve

Eve was, as many brides-to-be are, frantically busy in the lead up to her wedding. She worried that she had left it a bit too late to get in the shape she had hoped for her wedding. With wedding costs mounting up, hiring a trainer multiple times a week to reach her goal was not an option. She was also extremely skeptical about the promises of online diet/training plans –and rightly so...

Patient ZERO

Patient ZERO

I started on the Pr1mebody programme what seems like a lifetime ago now and it's because of this programme I can manage my training and my eating for when 'Life' happens. I understand my weaknesses and I work on them, I recognise that there will be setbacks but through the continued support of Tim and the PR1MEBODY app messenger,  the setback whether it be mental or physical, doesn't end up being much of a setback at all.  It's turns into a point at which to push on and forward.  Even when I'm flying around the world for concerts or sat on trains for hours at a time, Pr1me has given me the tools to strive to improve myself everyday."

Nutrition and men’s mental health: why a happy gut means a happy mind

Nutrition and men’s mental health: why a happy gut means a happy mind

For some, as we descend into winter our moods can drop and everything seems grey.  Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D) is a form of depression predominantly brought on by the lack of sunshine we absorb.  Superman gets his power from Earth’s yellow sun and it seems we mortal men aren’t much different...

The TRUTH about MEAT and how to spot bad science

The TRUTH about MEAT and how to spot bad science

A few weeks ago the media was awash with the latest 'Eat meat and DIE" propaganda.

While its true you should always care about the quality of the meat you eat, blanket claims about meat causing cancer is sensationalist media at its finest. Remember;
