Editor's welcome: March 2018

There are two words I try hard not to overuse in this column and in this publication: 'local' and 'community'. I have to try hard because those two words – which combine seamlessly to form a perfect descriptor for so many elements of a... local community magazine – are all too easily devalued when used too liberally. Like a mischievous child saying sorry time and time again or newly-weds continually declaring their love, the power of certain words can decline with repeated use. In order to convey sincerity, we must choose our words carefully. more.

Whether you want to lose weight and burn fat, or get shredded and in the best shape of your life, you’re in the right place. Changing your body changes your life. You become more confident at work, quick at decisions, more dedicated, stronger. Your dating life picks up, you feel and look years younger, you’re a shark in business. Your body is the physical record of your life story as you’ve lived it until today. Every pound represents a choice, every meal is influenced by a set of habits, a list of likes and dislikes. If you’re unhappy with your weight, you must change your habits. If you’re tired of trying to lose weight or to shape up and going in circles ad infinitum, don’t wait and book your life changing body transformation package. You can be coached either online, or you can choose a package that includes personal training and coaching in two awesome London location. I will train your body and your mind to win and I will keep you accountable. Every day. Every day you will feel empowered to bring on the change.

There’s knowledge, plan, execution and spectacular results. Bring it on.
