More is not always better.

I received a really nice update today from Peter Shannon. I had done a phone consultation with Peter a couple months ago.  He was very frustrated with his body fat levels,  he was training everyday some twice a day.  Results after making time to rest and going to functional medicine doctor. 


I wanted to send you a quick update. Thanks again for taking the time to talk to me. I got all my blood work done the other day and just got back my results. Testosterone is right in the middle of the "normal" range, and I found out that I have a allergy t
o dairy. Seriously listening to your podcasts and reading the articles you put up helped me out incredibly. I still haven't done any cardio since our last conversation. I have dropped 3% of BF and stayed at the same body weight. I have finally started to take 3 days off a week, seriously not doing any activity. This was a huge step for me. It helped me relax both physically and more importantly mentally. Keep doing what your doing man.

I haven't seen any updates in a while about how your recovery is going?

Seriously, your advise has been a life changer. Thanks again.

Peter Shannon

In today’s episode of the Gym Laird show, I am joined in studio with my client Rachael Bertram Mathews. I ask Rachael to share her story as she has done what a lot of women do to lose weight only to gain weight. She shares how she: – Was training boot camp 4 days a week at 5am
– How her previous coach told her to add more cardio once she plateaued
– How her motivation dwindled and she couldn’t bring herself to go to boot camp
– Discovered powerlifting when her friend told her about Gym Laird
– Why I told her she needed to train less and calm down when they started working together
– Once she got her nutrition and exercise in check how her moods changed
– Why she benefits from having a coach
