You too, could be fitter in just one workout…

Nick is strong as an ox, which is why he works hard on his running.

Yep, that was a deliberate click bait kind of blog title.....

But unlike so many of those diet pill and celebrity fitness gurus out there pushing their rubbish, I can actually back up this statement.

Big call?

Not really.

It's a simple solution.  Work your weaknesses.

If you have a 100kg snatch, that's amazing.  But don't get all consumed with the pursuit of 110kg, start running instead.
Because there is a distinct possibility that your road to 100kg was lacking quite a bit of running, am I right?
Oh, you can run 42km in your sleep? Don't spend hours pounding the pavements just so you can PR by 1 minute at the Auckland marathon in October, why not get to work right now on achieving your first pull-up instead??
Pick just one thing you find challenging, complicated, or downright unpleasant even.... and tomorrow, you'll see a fitter you in the mirror.
Not $99.....not $49.... not even $29!!  That advice you can have for free.
I can't throw in a set of Ginsu knives though......
