Recent post from crew member Jessica Clare

What does teamwork mean to you?

One of the things I’m starting to realise as we prepare for Great Pacific Race is that this is a challenge wayyyy too big to take on alone and you need to have total trust in your crewmates

Over the next year, we’ll lean on each other for emotional, physical, and logistical support

Often, the reality of our busy lives means we don’t get to train in the same city, let alone the same gym, but I love knowing that the crew are with me in spirit through training .

Last night Anna Campbell slogged it out at ICON Gym Maidenhead while I sweated it out at Digme Fitness - sure it would be better to train together, but sometimes we just have to make do

Throwback to last Saturday when we did our quarterly Games and picnic.

ICON Games is a mini tournament series in small groups that brings a sense of camaraderie, teamwork, and community through movement.

It was great to use the current weather and go outside to throw @tfench worms around.

Picnic, as the name, suggest involves s̶t̶e̶a̶l̶i̶n̶g̶ sharing people's food.

I hope you had a lovely bank holiday weekend and are ready to return to the post-summer routine.

Greg and the ICON Team

It's Monday morning… Again! 🥱

You are off the back of another big weekend

Feeling tired, dreading work and facing up to the reality that you have to get your workouts and nutrition back on track

Asking yourself…

Ok, that was a little bit clickbait.

But, indeed, your activity tracker is not 100% accurate; often, they’re far from it.

So don’t think because your Apple Watch has told you you’ve burned 450 calories in a workout, you can eat that back afterwards. It’s not as simple as that.

If you’ve worked out your calories based on a personal goal, stick to that number. Don’t create a number, then treat exercise as a way to allow yourself to eat more.

In the next post, we will post a video calculating your calorie allowance.

Why not sign up for our brand new 30-Day Challenge and reclaim your best self!

I’m Always Tired

We know the feeling (literally!).

But why are you feeling this way?

Firstly, the obvious. Sleep, and you probably are not sleeping enough. Five hours is not enough for most of us, and unfortunately, we can’t help if your child doesn’t want to sleep, but we feel your pain!

But what about the less obvious? Think about if these might apply to you…

🏋️‍♀️ Training hard and under recovering, applying the “more is better” principle when that’s not necessarily true. When you feel lethargic, or everything hurts, take the foot off the accelerator in the gym.
🍒 Minimal fruit and veg intake. Yes, we should be flexible with our diet, but the basics still need to be adhered to. Get your veggies and fruits in.
🚰 Poor hydration. Water is a requirement. Get it in.
☕ Over-reliance on caffeine. Bouncing from feeling so high, you can see sounds to knackered, then drinking a coffee to fix that and repeating the cycle.

What can you do this week to have more energy?

I Ruined My Progress Over The Weekend

❗❗❗
This is arguably the most common issue people face. They train regularly and eat well within the week, then Friday evening arrives, and everything falls apart over 48 hours.

Numerous factors can impact this, but here are a few things you can look at that might be causing this issue to arise…

✔ Too restrictive in the week. You’re so deprived of calories in the week that you become desperate to eat more, and when the weekend arrives, you inevitably forget your game plan.

✔ Societal. Ordering excessively from a menu on a night out rather than sticking to a meal portion you’d typically eat.

✔ Emotional. You’re so stressed from your working week that you want to make yourself feel better, and food is the thing you reach for.

✔ “Reward” - rewarding yourself for having a good week when actually this “reward” is the thing holding your progress back

How Can I Fix Weekend Binges?

Following on from our last post, here are some things to consider about not being a weekend warrior.

📝 Track Friday-Friday.
Try starting your tracking week on a Friday. When you get to Monday, you’ll see what you’ve used up and your calorie allowance from Monday to Thursday.

💃 Enjoy your week more.
Instead of being so restrictive in the week that you feel desperate to enjoy some nice food on the weekend, try being more flexible in the week. Remember, nobody is perfect. We should eat the foods we enjoy. Just not too much…

🚰 Drink more water
Often we mistake hunger for dehydration. Make sure you’re regularly drinking enough water, especially on weekends, so you don’t mistake the feeling of hunger for actually needing to drink more.

A plateau is when your results stall out, and you stop seeing the progress you saw when you first started your program.

Nearly EVERYONE goes through a plateau from time to time. The good news is that if you experience one (or are in one right now), there are a few key things to pay attention to...

1️⃣ You Are a "Kinda-Sorta" Following Your Program.

Have you started to slack on your plan? Be honest! This is one of the top causes of plateaus, and it's an excellent sign to shake things up with new recipes, workouts, or injecting some more INTENTION into the mix!

2️⃣ Your Body is Used to Your Workouts/Plan.

This is another top cause of plateaus! The good news is this means you're fitter/healthier. It also means it's time to challenge your body differently.

Regular updates to your plan are going to be KEY to your success! A great coach can help you quickly identify small tweaks to fire up your results again.

3️⃣ Stress, Sleep Deprivation, etc. Your body isn't a machine! It's an incredibly complex organism that functions best when it's in balance.

So many things can throw it out of balance, from being overtired to overstressed and even undernourished and overworked.

4️⃣ You're Not REALLY In a Plateau (Part 1). If you only rely on the scale to track your results, you're missing out!

Your body could be changing in a big way, EVEN if the scale doesn't move. That's why it's important to measure other things - like the strength, how the clothes feel, or circumference measurements.

5️⃣ You're Not REALLY In a Plateau (Part 2). If you're struggling to lose those "last 5 pounds," you might be at a weight that's healthy and natural for your body.

Losing those pounds can take extra effort – as can keeping them off once you hit your goal. Is it worth being miserable 95% of the time to be 5% lighter?

The fastest and surest way to get – and keep – your momentum going is to work with an experienced coach with a tried & tested program as you get at ICON.

I Ruined My Diet

We’ve all had those days where we overconsume calories. It happens. It’s life. We all have events to go to which are more important to enjoy rather than worry about the number of calories we’re consuming.

But how we respond to that is the key thing. Just because you overate on a Saturday night doesn’t mean all your progress is ruined. When you make an expensive purchase on your credit card, it doesn’t mean you’re financially ruined.

And it’s the same with our diet; one bad day doesn’t mean ruining your whole week or month. It means the next day, or whenever it’s next possible, you go back to the sensible and sustainable daily eating habits you had before.

One hot day doesn’t make a summer. At ICON, we teach you how to approach nutrition from a sustainable and personal perspective that frees you from dieting.

For the early risers 🌤🏋🏻‍♀️🥇

25/04/2022

“I know what I’m doing. I don’t need a programme.”

But if you knew what you were doing, you would know that isn’t right.

Often people train for years without making any real substantive progress toward goals they set along the way.

It’s the sunk cost fallacy of life. You don’t want to break with a routine you’ve followed for months, maybe years, because that would be accepting what you are doing isn’t serving the purpose now.
It probably did in the past, but your life changed, like your goals and reasons to train.

Sure there’s something to be said for simply being active, and getting to the gym is an achievement for many. That’s why you need to know where you are on your training path in life.

But wouldn’t it feel great knowing the “what to do today at the gym” conundrum was taken care of every single time you train?

Having a coach and a programme adds accountability, offers progressions and modifications to support you, and challenges your body differently.

Just because you lacked direction in the past doesn’t mean you have to keep doing it. It’s about learning from experiences.

Sign up for our 28-Day Challenge and find new direction to train.
