EP13: James Smith on how to avoid YOYO Training and Nutrition Cycles
I went on a trip to London to record this podcast. James Smith is someone I respect hugely in the industry, he cares a huge amount about his clients and the standard of his service to them. We hardly get chance to catch up so it was really enjoyable to chat on this podcast. I left the structure quite lose and our main topics are:  2 Training myths or mistakes and how to avoid them.  2 Nutrition myths or mistakes and how to avoid them. m We crossed over slightly and repeatedly came back to avoiding the YOYO mentality. Instead picking one target to change or one habit to add, working on that first and then adding more from there. Controlling the controllables too was a huge focus.  I also had some surprise questions for James at the end. I hope you enjoy as always any questions please reach out on either of our social media. James can be found at the links below:  https://www.instagram.com/thelyfestyleproject/ https://www.instagram.com/jamessmith/ https://www.facebook.com/thelyfestyleproject/?__tn__=%2Cd%2CP-R&eid=ARA9oaJR1dZfxLc_qmwDyNgs2Tlh9zHZNIHLWiQSLDt4Oh3aWdLMRM0GCygfJMBzBC-mumxz2SQGT3jo James discussed his private group Female Weight Loss, No points, No calories, No sins which you an find below too:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/femaleweightloss/ Or you can reach out me at the following :)  https://www.instagram.com/bethwillis_pt/ https://www.facebook.com/willisfitnessPT/

EP11: 2020 Mindset, Journaling and Self Reflection
So Series 2 is here!! Wow I am super excited to get this podcast up and running again and thank you for awaiting this episode eagerly.  I wanted to discuss journaling following the success of the seminar I delivered at the 2020 Vision retreat I delivered for some of Team Willis Fitness. Most of whom are still using the journal provided and reaping the benefits from it.  Journals can come across as almost a cliche now but I don't want that to be the case for you.  In this podcast I provide some definitions but also some methods and tools you can use your journal for as it doesn't have be necessarily 'dear diary'. Every tool of habit or goals you set has to work for you in order to provide a benefit or addition to your life, remember that.  I hope you enjoy and as always if you have any questions please reach out via message on the below platforms  https://www.instagram.com/bethwillis_pt/ https://www.facebook.com/willisfitnessPT/

EP10: Is your ladder against the right wall?
We officially have a podcast introduction which I am pretty happy with :)  This was more a brain dump to be honest as I love the mindset side of stuff and just thought I would put something out there for people to start to think about where their current trajectory is taking them.  It can be quite hard to make such big changes in life, I know I am not always good at things like that, but I am trying to be better and it is thinking of things in this manner which certainly helps!!  As always please like, subscribe and share this podcast if you found it helpful   https://www.facebook.com/willisfitnessPT/ https://www.instagram.com/bethwillis_pt/

Ep07: 5 Tips on World Mental Health Awareness Day
So some of you may or may not know, and like many people of my generation, I have my own story on the effects Anxiety and dEpression have had on my life, a story which one day I may share in greater detail. BUT today is about helping even just one person pick a part of their life that they can change or improve in order to protect and support their own mental health.  I am a firm a believer that we have far more control over our mental health then a lot of us believe and the first part to changing how our mental health is effected is by talking back some of the control.  % things you can think ab out today are:  1. Sleep 2. Nutrition 3. Training 4. Communication  5. Note taking  Have listen and if you take action on anything please let me know as it would be great to continue the conversation.

EP06: Are all Calories Created Equal?
So this was more a discussion based podcast, I had an idea in mind and pressed record on my thoughts basically. When I work with people I always look to find the best route to their goals that means the least disruption tot their life and I never enforce any beliefs I may have onto anyone. In saying that I a big believer in something called the 80/20 rule. 80% of you energy intake coming from whole foods that require preparation and give you all the essential nutrients that you require and because you have then ticked that box 20% of you energy intake can come from anything that keeps you accountable and on track and that will vary from person to person. This means we move away from the good vs bad food labels that we see banded around and instead focus on well it just has a higher nutrient content and this has slightly less nutritional value but I enjoy it so I will keep a small amount in my life etc.  A calorie is fundamentally a unit of energy and the number 1600cal is the same target for 2 people however, they could both hit that target but receive drastically different nutrients, have varying energy and satiety levels and as a result be living two very different lives.  As always if you enjoyed this podcast please feel free to leave a review or message me and continue this conversation.  https://www.instagram.com/bethwillis_pt/ https://www.facebook.com/willisfitnessPT/

Ep05: Where to place your Nutritional Focus
I love this episode even though that sounds off for me to say that. I am really confident there are at least 2 - 3 nutritional nuggets for you to take away.  The focus of this episode is based on Nutritional strategies and understanding nutritional importance for fat loss. So I based the whole episode on fat loss being the main goal/objective and from that I discussed a pyramid of importance. At the pyramids base was calories and understanding that the principle to achieving your fat loss goals is a sustained calorie deficit/ over time. From there we talk about macro nutrient importance, the nutritional properties fo you food, 80:20 rule and supplementation.  I throw in an analogy based on buying everything you need for your house which I think paints a clear picture :)  As always enjoy and if you want to share please do and tag me in the posts.  https://www.instagram.com/bethwillis_pt/  https://www.facebook.com/willisfitnessPT/

Ep04: The 1% - Aggregation of Marginal Gains
I LOVE this topic and could speak all day about it! I got a little tongue tied at points with Sir Dave Brailsford's name!  This podcast talks about how often taking action is the hardest step but it doesn't always need to be. If you apply the 1% Rule or the Aggregation of Marginal Gains, making as many small improvements as you can that lead to a huge increase in performance or results. This was the exact principle that Sir Dave Brailsford applied with the hugely successful Olympic Cycling teams and Team Sky at present, leading to numerous gold medals and Tour De France victories.  I speak about those changes and provide example as to how you can go away from this podcast apply those 1%'s to your every day life in order to get multiple steps closer to your goal without the fear fo taking dramatic or drastic action that is unsustainable e.g. juice diets.  As always if you have listen and like what your hear please leave a review or share with friends and family. Send me a message below fig you enjoyed the podcast would be great to continue the conversation.  https://www.instagram.com/bethwillis_pt/ https://www.facebook.com/willisfitnessPT

Ep:03 - Why you shouldn't only track your progress using the scales
So this week I wanted to focus on a topic that effects so many people I work with and speak to and that is the Scales and using them to track progress.  First things first I talk about using the scales is a great tool to track progress and how they certainly have their place. But we delve into some of fluctuations that can occur daily on the scales along with other tools to track progress.  I focus predominantly on feelings to and how changing how you feel about yourself and lead to a change in your body shape or body fat levels rather than going through the.. I will be happy when circle, which can be so dangerous and numbers focusses.  Once again please feel free to share with friends/family and post onto your social media after listening.

8 Tools I used to lose 8kgs
As many of you know I recently underwent a period where I focussed on my own training/performance in prep for a business Photoshoot. I started the 12 weeks with no goal weight in mind, which is something I always recommend, and put my nitration, training and routines higher up in my priority list.  Why did I do this well the main reasons were not the business photoshoot but instead they were personal to me and how I felt about my body image at the time but externally I also want to lead from the front supporting Team Willis Fitness and making sure I am living and breathing the advice I preach.  So this podcast goes through 8 tools that I think will help everyone on their own journey and they are tools I used myself.  Enjoy!  https://www.facebook.com/willisfitnessPT/ https://www.instagram.com/bethwillis_pt/
