The true challenges are in the gym, not in the kitchen.

Eating right is NOT the hard part. Trying to eat as little as possible, restricting your choices of foods, cutting out anything you enjoy but isn’t “clean” or “paleo” enough… that’s hard, but unnecessary. 

The problem is you’re still “exercising to burn calories”, and not “training to utilise calories”. There is a massive difference between these two concepts. When you train strategically to build the best physical representation of your genetic potential; #1 your energy requirements go UP. That means not just “you can eat more” but “you had BETTER eat more”. When that total calorie requirement goes up, there is more room for flexibility in your food choices. More room for enjoyment and indulgence, and you know that your body will put every gram to good use.

Like I say in the video… ask any one of the girls I coach, who happen to be the same girls I see you all reblogging talking about how amazing they look and how they have your goal body. Go ahead and ask them how hard or how easy it was to stick to the nutrition guidelines I gave them that directly resulted in the awesome figures you’re so envious of.

Train hard, eat easy.

That’s what I think. It’s what I know.

Rule 1: Post the rules.
Rule 2: Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post then make 11 new ones.
Rule 3: Tag 11 people and link them to your post
Rule 4: Let them know you’ve tagged them.

My questions:

  1. What is your greatest achievement?
    Jesus Tahlia, you ask hard questions. My greatest achievement, in all honesty would be overcoming suicidal urges and most ED tendancies.

  2. What do you hope to accomplish in your life?
    Selfish but, I just want to be happy and confident in my own skin, first and foremost. I’d really like to make a difference and educate people on the injustices in both manners of human and animal rights. I’m really passionate about both subjects.

  3. Do you want children? 
    Yes and no. I’m sort of undecided on this one. I don’t ever want to be pregnant or give birth. Currently, no I do not want children, but I am open to the prospect of adopting a child who needs a home or perhaps fostering a child or two.

  4. Where in the world would you like to travel to?
    Oh my god! There are a few places I’d love to travel to that I’ve listed in my goals, but I’d love to travel in general all over Europe as well, definitely.

  5. How are you different now as compared to who you were a year ago?
    I’m definitely a much more positive person, with distinct goals that I want to achieve in life, and there are many emotional wounds that have finally begun to heal - that I’ve finally let heal. I’ve regained my fiesty(ish) nature, but I’ve also learned how to control it and when it’s not needed. 

  6. Do you own your own car?
    Sort of. I have my own car, but I haven’t started paying mum back for it because she bought it for me.

  7. What is your favourite TV series?
    My favourite anything changes minute to minute, but right now at this very second, it’d be a tie between American Horror Story and Criminal Minds.

  8. If you had the chance to meet anyone in the world, who would it be?
    Well seeing as I’ve already met James Marsters, I guess next on the list is Nathan Fillion. 

  9. Is there anything you want to change? If so, what?
    In myself, in the world, in other people..? .. Either way, lots of things.

  10. Who are your role models/inspirations? 
    Many friends, some of my family, Jodie, Allanah, a few others who’s names escape me currently..

  11. Do you live in country or city regions? Which one would you prefer? Why?
    I live in suburbia. Not really the city, but definitely not country. If I had to choose between the two extremes, I’d have to go with city living to be honest. I can’t sleep without white noise, and I hate living far away from everything and I just don’t like the general feel of the country.

My questions for you:

  1. If you could be any supernatural or mythological creature, what would you be?
  2. If you could have dinner with any 3 people, living or dead, who would it be?
  3. Favourite non-alcoholic drink?
  4. Do you like wearing shoes indoors?
  5. If you could go back to any historical event and change it, what event and why?
  6. What’s one unpopular opinion you have about anything?
  7. What is your favourite smell? (ie; a perfume, freshly cut grass, a particular flower, baking bread)
  8. Describe your “happy place”.
  9. Whats your favourite movie and why?
  10. Your guilty pleasure?
  11. Do you sleep on your back, stomach, or side?

THIS MONTH’S SPECIAL: Sign up for DHPT Coaching Via Email and get this awesome hoody for free.

Sort of… actually you need to go order the hoody first, and I’ll subtract the cost from the price of my online coaching program. Actually the program is already ½ price for tumblr people so this is unbeatable and if you don’t jump all over it you’re bloody silly.

If you don’t know about my program already… well go ask some of your finest favourites on tumblr who’ve graduated already and now I’m throwing some extra stuff at them to keep them happy and moving forward.

Exhibit one: Kels’ review of my program + before and after pics.
Exhibit two: Dicy’s one year with DHPT post.
Exhibit three:Lexxa’s world famous ass, although she’d already done a great job on her own before starting with me.
Exhibit four: Miranda’s amazing progress. Again, only the last 12 weeks or so was with me and she’d done a tremendous job on her own up until then.

I don’t feel like i need to write a tacky sales pitch once you’ve hit those links.

Order the hoody: here
Sign up for my program here: Online Personal Training

GAWD I hope I don’t forget anyone?

If you’ve got any sense at all you’ll follow these fine ass intelligent women.

I know there’s more people doing the free program but gawd I can’t keep track of it all. Remind me? 


Attn: people doing my programs and stuff

If you’re doing / have done my free program, or my not free program, or just got some calorie & macro recommendations, or any other advice from me that you found helpful…. how about helping me out with something?

It’s the 6th month which means it’s time to update the landing page of my business site, and I want to have a video with a bunch of different people with a bunch of different accents doing a one line testimonial.

For example:

  • DHPT Coaching Via Email gets results.
  • DHPT gets results.
  • I just got started and I’m already getting results.
  • DHPT Power Precision & Pump gets results.

or you know, whatever you want. Ham it up and make it entertaining. Do it in the gym after smashing a big lift or something, or at home. In your training gear, or in your regular gear.

Who’s in?


worst villain in any movie.
