Recently we have seen a lot of new clients at UFIT. These clients are young, sometimes they giggle a lot, sometimes they are all business and have very defined goals for their coaching programs.

I have become a big fan of Ido Portal. He was in Singapore recently but I didn’t get the chance to meet him. He actually wanted $1K per attendee for a 2 day workshop so even though I am a big fan, I’m not that big a fan! He’s also back in Singapore soon for an extended workshop costing many thousands of USD and I won’t be attending that either! All power to Ido as he’s very inspirational and very...

I like brash statements particularly when I know them to be true! I would like you to think about the concept of performance. What does this word conjure in your mind? Do words like maximal, peak and ultimate come to mind? For me they do. In your place of work I’m guessing you have to perform. You have goals, targets, KPI’s that have to be met. There is pressure to perform and there is...

Muscle imbalances are very common. Sometimes they’re very easy to spot for instance check out this Facebook Page dedicated to Rafael Nadal’s arms and how much bigger his left arm is to his right (he is a left-hander, of course). I’ll put the picture here as well –

Look, this preconception of training like bodybuilders which is continuously propagated by so-called fitness professionals masquerading as Personal Trainers in gyms and as free-lancers all around this country is becoming a JOKE!!! Unless you want to compete in Bodybuilding competitions with all the narcissists such competitions attract, why do you want to train like them??

Functional Training. Two words that collectively mean so much and collectively are so misunderstood. Functional Training (FT) is NOT going through some pre-set TRX routines, bouncing some swiss/gym-balls around and then doing some planks.

It’s fortunate for me that I do this for a job. But I’m figuring it must be a whole lot harder for you out there that don’t work in the fitness industry…..and perhaps for some that do  I’m talking about keeping your workouts fresh. This is the key to keeping on keeping on! The way to keep the momentum, the way to create a fitness-based lifestyle. If your workouts are fresh, you’ll keep doing them!

A quick question from intrepid Ufitter Kimmo, “why do I feel muscle soreness a day or 2 after a workout?” Good question mate! The technical term for this condition is DOMS (Delayed On-set Muscle Soreness). No one is really quite sure what exactly causes the condition. Obviously it is related to activities that stimulate muscle contraction and extension. Various types of weight-training sessions...
