LTB Magazine 15 (Digital)


Welcome to our anniversary edition of Lift The Bar magazine! It feels amazing to be celebrating 10 years of LTB and everything Chris and the team have done over the past decade to support personal trainers. Personally, I never would have thought when I first shifted my career to become a PT, and initially discovered LTB as a member, that I would be here writing this as an editor!

I always think anniversaries are wonderful moments for us to reflect on how far we’ve come, where we’re at and what we’re doing next, which is exactly what you’ll find in this 10th anniversary edition. We asked you for your favourite memories and resources to which you did not disappoint, we asked the LTB team and we asked some of our long-held LTB friends what changes they would like to see in the fitness industry over the next 10 years. One of my favourite articles in this edition is Chris’ personal story and reflection of an ever-changing LTB over the past 10 years.

Although, as always, perhaps the most wonderful element of this magazine – and of course of LTB itself – is the contributions from you, our members.  You have once again shared your stories, experiences, thoughts and opinions with us which make up the majority of this edition and quite rightly so. You are the beating heart of LTB, without you it wouldn’t be. So from all the team, thank you for taking this journey with us and we look forward to seeing where we go together in the next decade!

Happy reading,
