I founded The Arete Academy membership site to make getting in shape simple, smart and sustainable.
But I can’t take all the credit!
My co-founders have been essential in helping me create an online personal training system that works for everyone!
PAUL SHEPPARD has directed the development of the technology that enables us to offer personal training online.
Delivering a platform that’s in-depth, easy to use and can be accessed anywhere in the world.
DR LAUREN JAMIESON is a NHS Clinician and our health advisor. She, more than most, understands the impact of being overweight on a person’s mental and physical wellbeing.
When people join the Arete Academy, it’s because they want to find a definitive, proven solution to help them lose weight and get LEAN For Life.
This is what we do each and every day – we live and breathe helping you re-gain control of your body and life.
It is all we do!
“IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT SIGNING UP, DO IT, IT WILL BE THE BEST DECISION YOU HAVE MADE.”
We don’t do ”sports specific” training, powerlifting, crossfit or shout at you like a boot camp drill sergeant!
And we don’t ask you to diet, count calories or restrict yourself from socialising.
Instead we take your work, family and leisure time into account – you will never be asked to do anything you don’t feel you can achieve or take all the fun out of life.
This isn’t a quick ‘lose 2 stone in a month’ bubble or “Get a a 6 Pack In 6 Weeks”.
Our ethos goes completely against the latest exercise trends and fad diets you see on tv and on social media.
That said, if you follow our advice, you will see and feel major changes quickly.
By changing your life, step by step, with our proven approach…
“Arete” means working to fulfil your potential in all areas. With the goal being to find a sweet spot that works for you!
Our proven approach is built around this philosophy because you need to address 4 interconnected areas if you want to get LEAN for Life.
Living in the 21st century, we’re constantly bombarded with stress from all directions.
Resulting in a host of undesirable health issues and, in our eyes, an unacceptable quality of life.
By learning what stresses you and how to manage it, you will feel less overwhelmed and more in control, reaping the benefits inside and out.
Buying into the “no pain, no gain” myth and other cookie cutter nonsense leaves you dreading exercise, de-motivated or worse still hurt.
I adopt a “no brain, no gain” mantra!
Meeting your body where it’s at – training smart – allowing you to progress properly towards your goals without hating the steps to get there!
Leaving you feeling like you can’t wait for your next visit to the gym – a completely new experience for most!
Your attitude determines how much success you are going to have at anything you undertake.
Change can be uncomfortable at times – hard choices have to be made to forge a different path for yourself.
Living life on your terms, – choosing your choices – will empower you and reveal the body you have always dreamed of.
Going on a diet has never worked and never will – your body is way too smart for that…
I will teach you how to:
Eat the way your body is designed to be nourished and fuelled – by eating real, natural foods at the right times.
Burn fat, maintain muscle mass and keep your energy levels high.
As well as how to enjoy treats from time to time – turning eating into a mindful, pleasurable experience!
Join my Online Academy and I will lead you through my complete approach, helping you get the body you want at a fraction of the cost of 1 to 1 personal training
This is where you can come and work with me as your personal trainer in Glasgow. I will guide you step by step to help you transform your body once and for all.
