We are delighted to have the Nautilus Glute Drive on the gym floor at Spartan.
A quality addition to our already impressive range of glute and posterior chain equipment that includes:
* Reverse Hyper
* 45 Raise
* Hip Thruster Bench
Strong glutes look awesome and facilitate strength development.
With the glutedrive its now easier than ever to perform hip thrusts without the hassle of balancing barbells and ill-fitting pads.
Watch this space as we add it into our programmes immediately. ... See MoreSee Less

Alex Clarke was kind enough to have me as his guest on the first ever British Strength Podcast for British Strength Magazine. Not only did he bamboozle this simple Spartan with technology (headphones, microphone and video recorder) he even took my big chair!
Chatting with Alex is something I enjoy every time he visits Spartan and this podcast was no different. Check it out as we discuss:
* How Spartan really came about despite me sleep walking through an Ancient History degree.
* A taste of the sacrifices it required to make my gamble/awful business plan pay off.
* How a love of watching WSM on TV as a child took me to the British Natural Finals and ultimately World Natural Strongest Man.
* Why passion and authenticity is so important to me and my belief in backing up your bullshit.
* Why I value the countless unheard of clients I've worked with just as much as the more well known athletes.
* How I developed the work ethic I am known for and why I value effort so highly.
* What being the best means to me and why I want it so badly.
* The biggest problem I've encountered in my business.
* The value of having a great team around you and why I demand so much from them.
* Why strength training has so many positive connotations to life itself.
& much more.

BASIC THINGS DONE SAVAGELY WELL
I was delighted to be a guest on 'The Empowered Body Podcast' for my friend Adam Willis. Not only has he kindly found a picture of me with small ears and no grey hairs (credit to Jon Lipsey), he came prepared with some great topics to discuss that include:
* Why evolving as a Coach and as a Facility is so important to me.
* Who were my biggest influences starting out in the industry and who have been the biggest ones since then and what I learned from each one.
* My Key Training, Coaching and Business Principles.
* Why I am such a huge proponent of Strength Training and what I attribute to my own and Spartan Performance's success in developing a culture of Strength and so many strong athletes and clients.
* The common issues I see with Strength Training that limits people's results.
* What first attracted me to the sport of strongman. What key principles are needed to be successful in the sport and why so many of my general population clients and other athletes also have strongman's style training in there programmes.
* The importance of recovery to maximise results and my personal go to methods.

As we approach 10 years of results under the barbell at Spartan, I look back at the positive relationship I have built with Watson Gym Equipment in that time.
Since day one, my policy has been to invest only in the very best strength training equipment, even if it meant I started with fewer select items.
This is exactly what I encourage all aspiring gym owners who pick my brains to do too.
Watson @ Spartan. The best for the best.
Here's to the next ten years........................."..We are working with equipment 15-16 hours a day, 6-7 days a week for close to a decade, every single piece of equipment I got from Watson lasts, it's bomb... ... See MoreSee Less
