Omron BF306 Body Composition Monitor

3.0 out of 5 stars but good enough for the price, 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does the job. Not top level accuracy, but good enough for the price. Use it as a yard-stick, never take one reading as the truth, use it to measure the trend of fat change. And make sure tou you are consistent about when you use it as hydration levels will affect the result.

I use it once every 2 weeks with fat-loss clients and monthly for others as a general health measure.


The Gift of Fear: Survival Signals That Protect Us from Violence
The Gift of Fear: Survival Signals That Protect Us from Violence
by Gavin de Becker
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended by top self-defence experts, 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Essential reading for anyone serious about self-defence. This is about detecting and avoiding danger early.

Highly recommended by top self-defence experts.

The most essential nugget is the point about how anyone who does not respect a "No" response to small suggestions ("Can I buy you a drink?" "No" "Oh go on, live a little!") Is essentially disrespectful of your will and more likely to ignore later more serious "No" messages later.

Better than the vast majority of self-defence classes and courses out there. Read this before you bother going to one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the investment, 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is hard. But dear gods it works.

The first time I used it on my back it looked like I'd been flogged with nettles, but the teeth can really hit the right spots. It's like having a good trigger point massage.

Also the only foam roller I've found that works on my hamstrings (others are too broad). You may not want/be able to use across all muscle groups, so have this as a hard-core compliment to another mid-range roller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended: Not what you eat or why, but how to make the changes, 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is probably one of the most useful fat-loss books I've read.

Where most tell you what to eat and why, this shows you how you can actually make the changes in a manageable way that will stick.

I was long ago taught the maxim that "failure to prepare is preparation for failure". I usually invert this to " Successful preparation is preparation for success". This book is about how to successfully prepare by learning to prioritise your food planning and prep.

As a personal trainer I've adapted the concepts to work with my clients and seen great results. I recommend this to clients and other PT's.

Great value, I recommend this to clients in the gym. Let down by the app somewhat and lack of easy post-training analysis. You may still want to invest in a watch to pick up your heart rate rather than having to check your phone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as good as "Born to Run", 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not quite as good as "Born to Run", it lacks that book's cohesiveness. This is an interesting story that ties in some of the "unconventional wisdom" Fitness methods and theories out there. It will entertain and inspire, bit not quite cause the revolution that "Born to Run" did for the barefoot running movement.

Most interesting aspects:

The Maffetone method for endurance training
The allusion (albeit not explicit) to ketogenic diets

3.0 out of 5 stars I like Leo's work, 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like Leo's work, but ironically this book could have been shorter as it gets to a stage two thirds in where you feel like it's retreading the same theme over again.

His golden rule about changing one thing at a time is essential though.

Too thick and chunky for my gym work. Possibly intended for runners/OCR racers? Got a Qalo ring shipped instead - 3 times the price but better for CrossFit workouts and my job as a personal trainer.
