The French Paradox - how eating should be!

Wish you could eat like the French – lots of oil, cheeses, creams, wines and still be slim and healthy? Well you can, you just need to …..eat like the French!!!

Do you know about The ‘French Paradox’? This is the fact that the French (and other European cultures), generally eat a very rich/high-fat diet, yet have one of the lowest levels of obesity/heart disease in the western world. You don’t see them running, going to the gym, or basically raise a sweat much either (unless someone spills their wine!)

Now the age-old, ‘it’s genetics’ argument, is a popular one. However, study after study has shown it has nothing to do with genetics. High anti-oxidants in red wine I hear you say.

About me

Hi my name is Josh, I’m the big tall guy with the beard and I am going to be YOUR Personal Trainer while you’re here with me at Genesis Fitness Windsor.
Most of my life I have been involved in competitive sport right here in Brisbane. I’m a highly energetic and active person and always looking for new ways to challenge myself both physically and mentally. I have represented South East Queensland in AFL and was an integral member of a premiership AFL team. Recently I represented Queensland at the National Tug-Of-War championships.
I spent six years with the Australian Army which inspired me to pursue a career in fitness. My military background has bought a high level of discipline and mental strength to my workouts. My workouts are hard, persistent and straight to the point but I will make every effort to ensure you achieve your fitness goals and enjoy (almost) every moment of your workout with me.
I will work one-on-one with you to help transform your life and improve your performance in your chosen sport, field of work, or everyday life through training. I incorporate strength and conditioning, working on fundamental and compound movement patterns into my programs that are specific to your needs and WILL help you reach your ultimate fitness goals.
I will support you, I will encourage you and I will push you though your personalised training program to optimize the results that you want to achieve.
