I went to see Ritchie 5 weeks ago & he has changed the way I eat, think & sleep. I needed a kick up the back side as I was choosing the wrong food & my exercise was suffering for it. Ritchie taught me how to choose wisely & fill up on important, balanced foods. I cannot thank Ritchie enough & would definitely recommend him to anyone. In fact I would shout his praises from the highest mountain. I aim to be a lean, mean fighting machine & Ritchie has given me the tools to accomplish this. Thank you Ritchie, you are worth your weight in gold.
This year I had stepped up my goals and signed up to a triathlon training camp at the end of March with the guys at Total Transition Training, another part of Creation PT. Whilst I had stepped up my physical training in all areas I hadn’t really addressed my nutritional issues. I went to Richie at the end of February and asked him for some help because I had heard nothing but positive things about him. He gladly put me on a 5 week plan. My weakness is my sweet tooth but the fact that I had to track everything on an app really made me accountable along with the fact that all my facts and figures I needed were there to hand to help me through the day. By the time I left for Lanzarote I was 10lbs lighter, my BMI was down, my lean muscle mass was up and everything was going in the right direction. I now see Richie approximately once a month to keep me on the straight and narrow. He has helped me to learn and appreciate that it’s so much more than the number on the scales. I am stronger. I am fitter. I am lighter. I am leaner. Thanks Richie.”
“I have struggled with previous Duathlons particularly on my second run. So I explained my problems to Richie, he asked me to do a weeks food diary along with my training programme and straight away he noticed that I was very short on my calorie intake and more important certain food groups. Richie set a new calorie target to incorporate the food groups that I was lacking in, I have since been following his advise and feel I have so much more energy, my training has been much improved, I have since qualified for the 2020 GB age group duathlon championships but more importantly for me I finished first in my age group and felt great at the end of the race, Nutrition was certainly a key factor for me. Highly recommend Richie .”
After completing the 13 week nutrition course with Rich I couldn’t recommend this guy highly enough! he has helped me develop a healthy relationship with food and it was easier than I thought it was going to be! He’s been there with advice and a telling off when needed!! I feel fitter and healthier than I have done in years, with my development in the gym and at running being an added bonus. his encouragement and passion for protein has been amazing!!
