Why You Need TO Be Strong

Right so I’m just going to get straight into the meat and potatoes of this email
Why you need to be strong….
To quote Mark Rippetoe -
‘Strong people are harder to kill than weak people, and are more useful in general’

Now at first glance, this may seem offensive, but the man has a point.
Again, I will always say this…. No one is expecting you to hit elite totals in powerlifting or
weightlifting ranks, but all programmes need to develop some form of strength.
So how do you do this (analogy coming up) K.I.S.S – Keep it simple stupid
Strength comes in many forms, but the strength I am talking about is on your feet.
Jumping, sprinting, and lifting heavy sh*t
Something that made me realise this even more was my ‘return’ to competition.
As you may know, or may not know, my back ground is swimming.
I haven’t been in the pool for the best part of 5/6 months.
But I agreed to help my old swimming club out and anchor their relay team.
So……I dropped in last night for the warm up swim and FU*K ME!
I noticed the few extra kilos I had packed on since staying out of the pool.
So as you can imagine, I worried a little – thought I was going to flop and let down the swimmers.
Anyway, like a brick I decided to pull out the foam roller and spend half an hour trying to loosen off
FYI – this helped, and I now re learned the reason why I did this every day when I swam
(and why I will now bring it back into my daily routine – you should too)
So here it was – my grand return HA :P
Anyway my swim didn’t feel too bad, I enjoyed it, felt strange being back in….
Popped to the coach for my time – guess what – I hadn’t missed a beat
My time was around my best times I had ever swum.
yet the only thing I do now, is train big lifts for strength, with the odd exercises to work on my weakness
Just goes to show the importance of strength, and keeping training simple.
What I am going to suggest now is to take our last few places and become a Weekend Warrior
This programme is simple, and very effective – After this initial guinea pig trial to show YOU
that it works, the price will altered to the worth of the programme, so take advantage.

when the pain becomes too much

Perhaps the biggest worry about starting exercise is
always the question
“will I be the un-fittest one there?”
“will I be the fatest one there”
It’s always difficult to get over these sorts of
thoughts and often they can lead to you not
starting at all…..
I’m going way back now to when I was overweight
like 14 years ago
Yup I was exactly in the thought pattern
of the above
I’d had enough of being chunk
I mean size 38 waist and around 16 stone
was not a good look or a comfortable feel
for me
It was kind of embaresing that I had got myself
in that mess
I just knew I wanted to change
And the gym was the one thing that I shy
away from
1. Exercise was not my thing at school
2. The thought of exercising in front of others scared the shit outta me
3. I didn’t know how to get fit
It took alot for me to walk through the doors and I probably owe alot
to my friend for the push
Or I probably wouldn’t be a personal trainer now
See it usually takes the pain of what your in now to be more
than the pain of change to get your self in gear
If your not quite there yet
That’s cool
You just sit tight and read my emails :D
Just so you know Group training is really the way
especially when you are in with the same like minded
guys like in just dads bootcamp
It’s pretty easy to see why our guys are getting some
pretty insane results not only in weight loss
but also energy
better posture
You can come join us too on a trial week 
Just fill out our quick 3 minute form below
And I’ll get you booked in for a consultation and the pass :D

HEYYYY Nottingam

I’ve kinda been thinking about the last month in
Where do I want it to go……
See for the last few months It’s been a really shit time
alot of transition which is fine,
people taking the piss…which is lessons learned
sometimes you have to think just let them get on with it….
But now I’m at a point where I’m going to be choosing
who I train very carefully….
See there are energy vampires who suck the life out of you
They don’t want to really do anything about the situation they
are in,
they just want to be heard and hope for a miracle,
Check this out for crazy
people are valuing their health at an all time low
Count up the cost per month on good things for your health
against the bad things
Which is higher?
And tell everyone on facebook how miserable they are
because they are fat!
See I know exactly what it’s like to be fat too
I  used to battle with my weight for years
But only when you realise you are the one responsible
for your outcome,
will you change.
It’s not hard really it’s just getting a solid plan into place
Structured one that works…..
Last night a couple of our Barbell Booty Babes
clients mentioned their clothes were feeling alot better
on them already!
3 weeks in!
That’s crazy huh?
Well kind of excited me and Callum to see the ladies
are getting results just as we said they would :D
Oh well that’s about it for today sweet!
Jump on board barbell booty babes
It really is the best investment you will make in your health this year!
James ” Let the vampires go” Bacon



I need you to take some positive action

I mean because positive thoughts become positive

actions and they become habits etc….


Or however it is written,


Perhaps you are stuck right now,


You want to make a change to your health


for whatever reason it is that’s your goal,


You do want to hit it right?


I could help you,


I have helped alot of fed up people in my time of



Exercise my friend is just a minor part of the long game


we had a discussion this morning about fluctuating weight

through dieting,


Lose a stone


gain it back


viscous cycle really


No long term changes to the way you are thinking about



Eating take aways, because it’s easier to do so than cook


yes we live in a busy society where we can’t seem to make

any time for our selfs


then we gain weight and do some crazy crash diet to

try and lose it



Stop that bull shit!





What’s more is that if you are training hours upon hours in the gym

and restricting your food intake


your heading for a meltdown


Your body Does Not change in the gym


It changes when you are fast asleep


and for that change to take place you need to eat food!


Real food!


But we can get into that another email…….



Today’s action point for you to do is jump on our barbell booty 

babes October intake!


it will help you finally achieve that goal


Our sessions have already started filling up for Ocotber

we literally can only take on 10 people at a time

This program is butt firming

stomach flattening

and energy increasing!

Hope that makes sense haha

Right that me done :)


James ” off to catch up on sleep” Bacon


ps >> did you know in January 90% of new gym users quit after 2 weeks


I say it’s the gyms fault! More on this tomorrow



Why Ben got excited measuring himself

Today one of my clients Ben
yeah we talk about him alot!
The others will be getting jealous haha
He told me he had lost 2 sizes in his work suit
as he went for a fitting yesterday
that’s pretty impressive for 11 weeks
that also means hes 21lbs down (1.5 stone)
I mean that’s a big amount man!
If you put 21lbs on butter next to you you could see
how much!
Don’t go buying 21bs or butter from asda dude,
The mrs will shout at you!
Anyhoo imagine how much that has made a difference
to his every day life
the less body fat you have
in turn the more energy you will have!
What about Louis who is well on his way to a size 34 waist!
Louis is well over 2 stone loss already in 11 weeks aswell!
Plus he’s running the half marathon next month! – boom!
Pretty sweet deal for the little amount I charge for these results eh?
But away from results for a moment
People are scared to death of them
“OOOOO you shouldn’t eat carbs after 6pm”
“OOOOO Avoid carbs they make you fat”
plenty more bullshit like that…..
truth is
over eating makes you fat
eating the wrong foods like processed shite makes you fat
Truth is some people can’t handle carbs at all
But in most if you cut them out for a sustained long period
your thyroid will suffer!
yeah carbs can be the devil dude
but they are energy too!
Like after a weights session…..
If I didn’t have carbs
I’d feel like absolute shit the next day!
So anyway
I can teach you all you need to know about all this in
BUT…..It’s only for Dads who want to take action!
James ” off for some porridge” Bacon
ps – 12 week physique details tomorrow amigo!


Human Alert

Ok my man it’s been a few hours
since my last email!
of course somedays you won’t even get any
thing from me
It really depends if I have anything to say
There was a few questions over my facebook
profile picture today
“James, were you drinking this weekend?”
Yes Mary sometimes I like to party too!
You know it must be the biggest industry full of bs
clients often think you are perfect
you don’t have any problems with eating anything
other than lettuce and drinking protein shakes
I couldn’t think of anything more satisfying haha
well truth be told I once too was obese!
Yeah I weighed in at about 16 stone
But that was because I hated exercise and
didn’t know any better about the food I was given
I guess if there is no education then this is a sure
fire thing
I take my hat off to Jamie Oliver for the mission he
undertook to make school dinners healthy!
But let’s get back to the point here
As a trainer I sometimes let the breaks off a little
you know how they say
“you only live once!!
Well that is true but the quality of what we put
into our bodies will either prolong or decrease
life expectancy
Unless you get run over by a bus (what does that even mean)
Anyhoo you can say oh you should be leading by example
well 90% of the time I am!
I know what works for me and if I’m on a down week
I want to cheer myself up with friends :D
Not to bore you anyway
just wanted to say I’m human too!
Kind of like all my Dads down at bootcamp
Making small changes every week and still enjoying life
These guys are not looking to be ripped
just feel better about the body that they are in
and have more energy to play with their children!
Want to give it ago?
James “Human too” Bacon

Which one are you?

Monday again dude

What did you do last week that made your life better

see what I used to do is dwell on what I did or

rather didn’t do last week

and Hoped for a better week ahead

But it doesn’t quite work like that I’m afraid

As the saying goes….

The pessimist complains about the wind

The optimist expects it to change

The realist adjust the sails

Which one are you?

That can pretty much tie in with your weight loss goals

You can complain about your current situation

pointing the finger at everyone else

you can expect it to change by not really taking the

right action to get you there

or you can adjust your current habits to make sure

you get the results you are after

See it’s pretty simple to see that we need to actually

make important changes to succeed.

You can start adjusting the sails right now

by filling in this short form

What you do now is directly

Going to impact your tomorrow :)

It’s James here from Body Revive
I’m working with Callum on the strong runner program
Being a trainer myself I’m always looking to improve my
coaching skills and also my personal goals
Since I hooked up with Cal
I have seen massive improvements in all areas of my training
Guy knows his stuff!
Anyhoo the Strong runner program
is looking immense
and I’m responsible for the nutrition part for you!
What alot of people who get into any sort of fitness program
do is generally have the mindset of is
to train more and eat less
well while this may work for an initial few months
your body will inevitably plateau
this is just because you have burnt of alot of muscle mass
and that muscle you lost will slow your metabolic
rate waaaaaaaaaaaaaay down
so you kind of get that skinny fat thing going on…..
So what you need to do is the opposite approach
more calories in
but I’m not talking any old calories they need to be
nutritious calories
after all
a mars bar has something like 276 kcal the same could
be said for a 150g portion of chicken
which one would benefit you the most?
After all sugar – your body doesn’t really know how
to process it!!
I can show you exactly how to get your metabolism and
physiology back into perfect working order as well
as the right supplements and foods to have for
optimal performance!
Just give us 12 weeks to show you how
James ” more food” Bacon
ps you can also jump on our online version of the program
so we can help via long distance!!

12 week fit dad

We literally have a few new programs coming up at the
body transformation centre!
Well we actually need to test drive them all!
Now Just Dads Bootcamp is under way we need to get
our small group training program up and running
“Fat Dad to Fit Dad!”
This is a 12 week weight training program
well you may think you need to do cardio first
but let me blow that myth out of the water for you
right now
Increase muscle mass equals more body fat burnt!
Muscle is metabolically active while fat is not! – just looks bad
So what does fat dad to fit dad entail
well its going to be 12 weeks of
3 sessions per week in our studio
following what we say
we will of course address your posture first
to check you have no problems such as tightness
or weak muscles
we will correct those so you just feel more upright!
Next we will take our skeleton program for the 12 weeks
and take some tests on your current lifts
and then we can manipulate the program individually
so we can monitor your progress!
In 12 weeks expect a massive change in your body
not only physically but mentally!
we all no looking good equals feeling good about the body we are in
now because your on my list
I know your probably feeling like crap right now
and that’s ok,
because this is the perfect time to come try out our service mate!
and we are looking to get this program on the market for about £497!
But as we need guinea pigs who will
- test out our program
- give us feedback every week
- give us measurements and photos
- follow the program to the tee
in return you will have
- a discounted rate of program
- more energy to spend time with your kids
- a smaller waist line
- reduced man boobs if not gone all together
- feel stronger
- more compliments from the mrs
- you will be a inspiration to others!
so how does that sound mate?
you can jump on board at the bottom of this email
we only need 10 guys and we will expect a quick fill up
So simply put sign up like now
oh times….
expect two groups one a.m and one p.m
September 2nd start
In the weekdays as we know you are busy with kids, wife etc
Sign up now deposit just £27
the remainder will auto debit in amonth!
James ” The solution is here” Bacon

Group accountability

Did you know group support is a big factor
as to why people chose to stay on board
I’m going to relate this to exercise as
that’s what I do ;)
so anyhoo I spoke to alot of gym users
over the past few months and they said
the hardest part is keeping them self motivated
to go and workout alone!
It’s all good in my eyes to be doing some sort of
activity to take people off the sofas from watching
the hypnotiser (T.V)
I remember when I was a kid my parents used to kick me out
of the house.
Go play!
Go exercise
but I still managed to be the fat kid!
I’m drifting off topic again!
If you knew you had a group of like minded guys
who were in exactly the same place as you are
right now
Fed up
Bloated belly
No energy
No time to yourself
Would you rather be training with them or
doing your own thing
The gym is for everyone!
Imagine it as a big net in the ocean
while it may have the facilities and flashy
equipment there is no success guaranteed!
Well I’ll leave you with last nights tyre flipping action!
and I hope to see you on Wednesday mate!
06.30am & 7pm
