"I have always kind of trained all my life, but with taking the lead for this movie (Deadman Running) I had to be muscular and look fit enough to smash through brick walls. I've never done anything as intense as when I trained with Kris Cann - "the man" got me in shape in 6 weeks no question". Tamar Hassan - Hollywood and UK actor

Eating smart and boxing clever

Whatever your exercise goals, sensible eating is an easy way to enhance your progress, aid muscle repair and fuel your body for enjoyable training. There are numerous nutritional strategies, diet plans, fasting methods to choose from many of them are effective – for a while at least.

Eating smart for me means wherever possible eating real home cooked/prepared food that is of the highest quality I can afford, limiting sugar (and if you have to use it, use less and go for unrefined) and using a good quality sea salt – never table salt. After reading a Jamie Oliver book I found my local butcher, who has great deals on free range, naturally fed, organic meats and poultry  – I spend less £’s than I did on supermarket meat and it’s better quality by a mile and I know where it came from. Try seasonal receipes particularly those involving above the ground growing leafy green veggies, I found four awesome kale receipes in the magazine pull out of my Sunday paper, keep your eyes peeled.

Like exercise if you do the same routine repeatedly your body and mind get bored and  become unresponsive – eating the same thing over and over again doesn’t give your body any new nutrients and it is highly likely you could be missing something that your body needs – mix it up a bit. I go organic wherever possible and I will discuss this more in my up coming smart eating seminar – EAT LIKE THE TRAINER launching in early January to set you up for a healthy 2015 – the first 5 places will be free so register your interest NOW.

On a different note my Tuesday boxing and strength classes were a lot of fun last night with the boxing boys refreshing some skills on the pads before testing them out on each other with some well controlled light sparring.

Tuesday night boxing

Men’s strength training was extra tough as I led the guys through a quad set of exercises (4 exercises no rest), one of the best sessions I can remember for a while and every went home ready for a well earned kip.

There are limited spaces available for my boxing and strength classes but if you want to join a friendly group of professional guys and to learn new skills and get lifting properly then contact me and get involved.

Till next time – Hit the fitness – Kris
