New Years Fitness Resolution - Oliver Ody

The New Year turning seems to bring around sudden changes in peoples beliefs and attitudes towards a better lifestyle or habits and always brings a boom to the fitness industry. However, as with most peaks there are inevitably troughs where people’s motivation or priorities take the turn towards their old routines and lifestyle. So this is why I am taking the time to help people maintain that motivation they enter the New Year with and capitalise on what potential you are putting into your life.

Firstly the most important thing is setting goals. Goals, goals, goals, did I mention goals?!.......more

The Importance of Stretching

Wednesday 3rd July 2013

Training with Personal Trainer Oliver Ody, Eastbourne

Stretching is a massively underrated and often ignored part of sport and exercise. The majority of people who aren’t competing at a high level where there is a structured pre-match/competition taken by a coach or trainer will often ignore warming up and go straight into physical activity. I know this first hand of failing to prepare properly and suffering the consequences from that. A 10 minute warm up is better than a 3 month recovery period. It is something I will always try and avoid!

Stretching has numerous effects on preparing the body for physical activity, maintaining the......more

The Do's and Don'ts for Building Muscle

Friday 24th August 2012

Training with Personal Trainer Oliver Ody, Eastbourne

Exercises such as deadlifts, back and front squats, power cleans, wide chin ups and bench press are paramount to building a strong and muscular physique. Training the body's larger muscles will obviously lead to a larger, stronger body but this is often missed out by many gym users who want a "six-pack" and big "guns" for biceps.

All of these exercises are free weight exercises (although you could do most on......more

Subjects aged 40 to 75 were instructed to do 60 minutes of aerobic exercise per day for 6 days per week for an entire year.

Instead, weight loss was a disappointing 6 pounds (2.7 kg) for men and less than 5 pounds (2.2 kg) for women......more
