Fitness For Freedom Tips

Fitness For Freedom Tips is a new type of fitness and health show. We deliver fitness tips that you can apply to your life right away in 10 minutes or less. Lets face it you’re busy and life pulls you in all directions. You want to be healthier, but living a healthier lifestyle is hard. It requires you to change and there is a lot of misinformation out there. We work hard to syphon through it to give you the most sound advice possible and set you up for the greatest chance of success. Jonathan Chant has been working with people to live healthier lives for 10 years now and he’s seen it all. That’s why he founded Fitness For Freedom, your complete online fitness training and lifestyle design community. He pulls out all the stops to help you make the changes yourself. No transformation challenges, no extreme changes just solid strategies to help you make changes that will stick for the rest of your life. Change is constant and you’re going to have lots of questions as you go along that’s why we keep our episodes short so they don’t ‘eat in’ to your already ‘stretched’ lives (puns intended). We try to have some fun with it too! Exercise doesn’t have to be boring? So what are you waiting for? If you’re still reading this you’re definitely interested in the show, so give it a listen.

If you're new to the show welcome and if you’ve been listening for a while you're already familiar with some of our philosophies of focussing on controlling your environment to make change and focussing on your behaviours to make exercise a habit. We wrap these into one small change at a time, because that’s usually more sustainable, not always, but usually. Today I want to cover something we don’t usually talk about, willpower. No matter how much you control your environment, how much you focus on behaviour change and creating  new habits there are still going to be times when you need to rely on willpower to cope with situations and help yourself make the healthiest decision you can in that moment, when you're not sure whether or not you'll be able to. If you want to put the power back into your will this is a must listen to episode.

Your Glute muscle is one of the biggest most powerful muscles in your body, well hopefully it's one of the biggest and most powerful muscles in your body, because sometimes you can’t see where someone's back ends and legs begin, because they are flat into each other and this is unfortunate for a few reason.

Jules - I’m a beginner exerciser but I find a lot of the exercises I’m able to do kind of boring. I want to expand my capabilities so that exercise is more fun for me. What exercises are more fun, but not too hard?

Graham - I own several fitness books pertaining to strength training that emphasize everything from calisthenics to barbells, but I'm seeking a progressive program that is easy for a novice trainee but that is still effective. What should I be looking at?

Today we’re going to take a hard look at the most common question people ask us, How do I lose the fat around my hips and thighs or how do I get rid of this? And they point to their belly or my personal favourite, How can I get rid of my ‘butterfly wings’ on the backs of my arms.  These are all variations of the same question, How can I get the fat that is on my body off my body.  Today we’re going to explore this question and some of the options and possibilities around it. If you’re interested in losing fat this is a must listen to episode.

We're into a new year now and one of the biggest problems most people have when it comes to reaching their new fitness or weight loss goals is staying motivated and consistent, today I'm going to make a strong case, pun intended for why you should lift weights and it's not the reason you think.

Last year in our very first episode I talked about how the first step you need to take to improve your health, wellness and fitness is to take responsibility for your life and the changes you make. Because this is the first episode of the new year, I thought it would be a good idea to revisit this concept of taking responsibility because I think there are some things that I didn't make clear in that very first episode, it’s time to take a better look at it.
