CAN'T STRESS ENOUGH HOW USEFUL IT IS!
Tony Boner - Liverpool, UK - My primary training goal is STRENGTH
I can honestly say I wouldn’t be anywhere without the website – I constantly refer to the website before, during and after my training. Usually the night before I train I check out what exercises I am going to be doing (especially important if I have started a new programme). I will usually either watch your video if available or someone else’s via google – much more preferable on your site as there are so many variations of each exercise.
While I am training I am constantly referring to how many reps to do/tempo/rest time etc and I can’t stress enough how useful it is to have past workouts saved in the calendar to check what I last did. The calendar is very easy to use – you can move your workouts around to the days you actually train – you can check your performance (that you are actually progressing in your training).
Before the website was working properly I had all my workouts on paper – these are all over the house, haven’t a clue what order I did them in and I never look at them whereas I check the website constantly and very very easy to update during your workout via a smart phone/tablet. I know on the odd day I have gone to the gym without a plan I have wasted my time just drifting around doing nothing in particular – Strongandlean has helped me focus my training – especially for someone who got to 41 years of age without doing any free weight lifting. I’ve now got my six pack (well I can just about see it anyway J), dropped 2 stone and finally have a bit of muscle for the first time in my life.

NO EXCUSE FOR MISSING A SESSION
Dr Mark Baxter MB ChB MRCS MRCGP DFSRH - Liverpool, UK - My primary training goal is STRENGTH
I have been training with Coach John for about a year now, and using strongandlean.com's Beta site for a few months.
The new website has helped me with my training in a few ways. For a start, being able to put your workouts in the calendar means there is no excuse for missing a session. You can plan ahead and put workouts in for when you know you will have time, and of course not book new things in when you have a workout planned - I know when I am going to be doing my four training sessions, so if I miss one the only excuse I have is being weak!
It's also easy to access your previous workouts so you know "how heavy and how many" you did last time, giving you a goal to aim for at the next workout, and seeing your progression on the graphs is a great motivator to carry on the hard work.
One of the great features is that I can even log in and access it on my phone at any time, so if I'm going to the gym before work, I don't have to remember to print workout sheets the night before, or take a scrap of paper and a pen to write things down when I'm there. I can do it there and then on my phone.
I would not hesitate to recommend the Primal Health Fitness team - I know that they go out of their way to continue educating themselves so that their knowledge on fitness and nutrition is right up to date, and evidence based. With their money-back guarantee you really don't have anything to lose except your excess body fat!
