If you affect positive change in your life, you will do so in the lives of other people. 
Never give up, always remember why you started. 
Think about where you could be a year from now. 
Big up @anitamarshall_ really inspiring progression. 
Respect sis. #Spartanfam take note :)

    Refined sugar is bad for your body and highly addictive. 
Remove refined sugar from your diet where possible and have a better quality of life :) 

Your body craves what you give it. 
You control your palette not the other way around. #spartanfam #famfoods

    Everyday you have a second chance.
Many people will doubt you, nobody will realise your dreams apart from you. Many people will say you can’t but it is no coincidence you are here… 
“There is no coincidence, just two incidents that cooperate to produce a deeper meaning. 
You are in the position you are in because a series of events have led you here, or you have been led here through a series of events dictated by you. 
If you want to be in a different position you have to take steps to move there. 
If you come from nothing then return to nothing you have lost nothing but have gained everything. 
We all came from an egg in a womb, you have nothing to lose. 
Don’t spend money you don’t have on things you can’t afford, to impress people that don’t care about you. 
Impress yourself and people will be impressed by your achievements. 
Don’t let someone who gave up on their dreams, talk you out of yours. 
Work hard to progress, keep your head up, do it for yourself, and all the people who ever doubted you. 
We all have difficult days but they make the good days worth it. 
None of us are superhuman but we have dreams. 
Make sure you fulfil them :) #spartanfam

    Every week I invite people to come and workout and it got me thinking: 
What motivates you? 
Is it how you look?
Is it what you can achieve?
Health reasons? 
The “fat to fit” story? 
Helps you manage your nutrition?
Socialising?
Peer pressure? 
A combination of all these things? 
Some people exercise purely for aesthetics, and superficial reasons. 
Not for me, but it is okay, as it’s your life and what motivates you. I know it’s long, when you are not happy with your body, and somebody with a perfect physique comes along and you die a little inside. Lol we have all been there. 
The usual reaction to this is: 
”I don’t want to look like that anyway, I am a normal human being not a piece of meat.” 
Many people, when presented with a picture or some information, think about how it pertains to their life, and experiences. So we formulate an opinion based up on how it affects our immediate situation. This is normal because your perception of the world, is through your own two eyes, but remember there are more people in the world than you, what doesn’t motivate you might motivate somebody else. Pride feels no pain in the world of fitness, you will be respected if you say “argh I wish my body looked like that”. The people train hard are inspirations to all. Some say “People aren’t supposed to look like that!” Yet we all need inspiration right? Having a Shapley, curvy or skinny body is cool as long as you are healthy. Being overweight can have repercussions on your health, but if you don’t want to exercise that is also okay. It is your life, your opinion, your perception. Although getting out of breath walking upstairs can’t be fun. However you look, whatever you want to do, it’s your life, and your journey. In order to improve you have to feel uncomfortable. Fitness begins on the edge of your comfort zone. You will feel embarrassed, silly at times, there is always someone better looking, fitter, stronger, faster. You shouldn’t compare yourself to anybody else for they are not you, and could never be you. Be the best you, if you want to improve you, this is what you have to do. Be happy with yourself. If you want to come and train, you know where we are :) #spartanfam

    There is no such thing as bad weather just soft people, in order to have a healthy and happy life you have to exercise, you have to eat healthy organic foods. 
I don’t want to get terminally ill when I am 40 because I was too lazy to look after myself (personal preference) Most diseases and illness come from a poor diet…
It rained, we trained hard :) @kingcookdaily lined up the green smoothies #spartanfameast #spartanfam 
Hands up if you have had a green juice or smoothie this year #famfoods

    We just completed the #bhf 10 km run. 
Thank you to the British heart foundation for having us :) 
Big up the #spartanfam @adidasuk happy Sunday 
Big up @kelzebek @spartanfam on her first ever race and in a time of 55 minutes. After a full month of training with us whilst fasting :)  I was pacing her, you should never run your first race alone, I didn’t, neither should you.

    Empower yourself, a strong mind is all well and good, but a strong mind and body is something amazing that many never achieve. 
Your life should be your main interest, your job is just your job. 
It is where you work, your life is where you live. 
Your health is more important than your bank balance. 
So next time you say you are going to start working out, eating right, or stop smoking, say exactly when. Don’t procrastinate, when you die your gravestone will not read “Here lies a great procrastinator” 
People only really remember what you did. Someday or one day are as good as saying never. 
Be a great doer of things, not a great talker of gas. 
Removed from what you have been told, do you really know who you are? 
When you stand in front of the mirror naked, with no make up that is who you really are. 
Are you comfortable with yourself in all your glory? 
Clothes are all well and good but we were born naked, and that is who  we really are. Designer clothes, shoes and jewellery is who we are really not. 
If you aren’t happy with what you see then try working out and eating right. Also remember that it’s Ok when you look in the mirror and see no immediate change. Keep faith my friend, know that in time you will become comfortable with how you look. It starts with becoming master of yourself, physically and mentally. Stay focused when you are on the path. That’s the difference between those who succeed, in achieving a positive perception of themselves, getting fitter, stronger, healthier and those who fail. 
You haven’t started working out? Time to get on track :) 
Big up all those taking part in the British heart foundation 10km run this morning #spartanfam #bhf10k
