LTB Magazine 7 (Digital)

£14.90

Our baby is growing up

I can’t believe LTB is 5 years old now. As with any
child, it didn’t come with a manual and it’s been a
rollercoaster at times however, I don’t think any of us
would have it any other way. Fortunately, thanks to all
of you, our lovely members, there’s been far more highs
than lows. You can check out our highlights, along with
those of some of the original members, and what we’ve
learnt along the way in the special anniversary section
of the magazine. I’ve also managed to pin Chris down
for an interview to find out how LTB came to be and
what it has taught him.

There is the usual mix of business, client care, training and nutrition knowledge and, in
this issue, we have Maddie Freeman talking about starting out in the industry, Nathan
Brown and Sophie Bryant cover opening their facility, Zoe Warren sharing her experience
in a commercial gym and Maggie Elliot her love of being a mobile trainer, proving there is
no one format for delivering your service. I also share a bit of a lightbulb moment I had a
few years ago which helped me stop comparing myself unfavourably with other trainers
which I hope will help others too.
We’ve introduced a new regular feature to the magazine. The wonderful Michael Goulden
from Integra will be looking at different exercises and breaking down the associated
joints, muscles and strength profile whilst simultaneously delving deeper into a different
aspect of the mechanical realities each issue. This issue he is looking at the squat with a
special focus on joints.
The motivator explores the power of community and communication corner the power of
words. James Krieger shares his weightology piece on weight loss and efficiency, Gregg
talks about the magic bullets of coaching and the problems with adopting evidence based
practice and there is, as usual far more brilliant things within than I can mention here.
