Are You Looking For A Personal Trainer In Adelaide?
Hi my name is Clayton and I'm a fully qualified personal trainer from Adelaide, Australia and have been involved in and around the fitness world for close to 20 years.
If you are in the Adelaide area and looking for a personal trainer you are more than welcome to contact me to arrange a consultation at a private personal training studio just 5 minutes from the Adelaide CBD. Facilities and equipment are fantastic and plenty of parking is available at no cost.
Personal training is a great way to start an exercise program, or if you currently exercise you can use the assistance of an experienced personal trainer who has been doing it for years show you techniques and exercises with the most benefit.
Sessions can take place in the personal training studio, or weather permitting in one of Adelaide’s many beautiful parks which we are fortunate enough to have one very close by. You have the choice of training for 1/2 hour, 1 hour or with a friend if that is more appropriate.
Feel free to contact me on 0411230575 to arrange your first personal training session.

Some Simple Nutrition Tips
There is simply too much information floating around on the subject of nutrition... If you Google "nutrition" there are 148,000,000 pages listed on this topic, on "diet" 184,000,000. Scary
In no particular order, here are some really simple tips that I use personally and give to my own personal training clients:
- Remove as many processed foods/drinks from your diet where possible. Some fruit juices from the supermarket are loaded with sugar. To help with this and as a really good general rule start thinking "how far removed from it's original state is this food (or drink)?" Eg. What are the ingredients of an avocado? Hmmm... I will let you figure that out. (Note: avocados are very cool and an excellent food choice). Basically, the fewer ingredients the better.
- Artificial sweeteners (even though they have no calories, the chemicals can cause the metabolism to go haywire)
- Soft drink (especially diet soft drinks! Again, artificial sweeteners)
- Reduce alcohol to a couple of times per week instead of every night if that is your current intake or just reduce in general
- Junk food in general is rubbish hence it's name and we all know it
- If it comes in a box and is wrapped in plastic chances are you don't need it - yes there are a few exceptions but not many
- Many white breads and boxed cereals from the supermarket are also loaded with sugar and no real help to the body or fat loss if that's your target
- Remember, "Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper!" Generally speaking, you need most of your energy to begin the day not end it. And don't forget your mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks... 8-10 almonds! (I should say here that maybe a better way of saying that would be to eat a handful of almonds, the delivery of nutritional advice is sometimes the main problem.
- Be good most of the time... if you mess up, dust yourself off and start again the next day. The worst thing you can do is overly criticize what happened. Just move on, but be careful this doesn't happen all the time.
