We want the world to lift, and to look great while doing it

We want the world to lift, and to look great while doing it

Our shared fitness journey

That you’re here reading this suggests you are already on your fitness journey, or have at least had your interest piqued by the iron game.

If so, welcome, we hope we can provide and share some of the experience, information and guidance our teams gained and received over decades of training. 

This experience helped us reach our fitness goals and embed the positive life habit of regular resistance training.

Why everyone should lift

Although there is undoubtedly an element of vanity when it comes to weight lifting (let’s face it, we all like to look and feel good). More importantly, study after study has demonstrated that regular resistance training delivers numerous physical benefits.

From actively reversing common signs of ageing, such as loss of muscle mass and bone density and slowing metabolism, to helping with both glucose and insulin homeostasis. Both of which help resist type 2 diabetes. Not to mention reducing body fat and improving functional independence, while helping to reduce lower back pain and arthritic discomfort. 

The benefits are many and varied.

And, although perhaps less of an impact than more cardio focused training, weight training will help reduce resting blood pressure and improve vascular conditioning.

And it’s not just physical benefits but improvements in mental wellbeing too.  

Multiple studies have shown that those who participate in regular resistance training report decreased symptoms of depression. 

Plus, regular gym goers also report increased self-esteem and physical self-concept. 

Gym goers even see improved cognitive ability (must be all that repeated counting to 12 and working out percentages of a 1 rep max).

What we'll do to help you reach your goals

We feel there is a problem in the online fitness world with many prominent voices pushing an unrealistic, unobtainable and often dangerous fitness fantasy.

And while we don’t pretend to have all the answers, or that our way is always the ‘right way’. We aim to always provide research backed sensible training advice that delivers more attainable, realistic results.

We also cover wider wellbeing and self-improvement topics that we feel go hand in hand with, or are often born from, a desire to improve our bodies, both physically and mentally.

Ultimately we aim to take the most important and beneficial training concepts and present them in easy to digest and easy to implement ways. Pulling the key information into one place, skipping the gym bro nonsense, and providing you with everything you need to reach your potential.

We can only guide and advise, however, the hard work and commitment are still down to you.

Work harder neon sign

In for the long haul

There is a common myth in the fitness world that there are quick or easy wins. 

We are all bombarded with get ripped quick scams, ‘revolutionary’ training techniques and a whole heap of pills, potions and lotions that promise much but deliver little.

The truth is, getting in shape and building muscle is actually very simple. But the reality is that it takes time and effort. A huge chunk of both and there are no shortcuts.

We don’t say this to demotivate, but to drill into you that getting in shape needs to be viewed as a lifelong fitness journey, not a one-time event or short term fix.

Yes, it’s hard, yes it takes many months and often you won’t feel like you are really making any progress.

But every time you hit the gym you are making progress. Every time you hit the gym you are ingraining a positive life habit, brick by brick building up both your physical and mental strength.

We all know the cliche saying that every great journey starts with a single step. Well, getting lean, super ripped, super strong or whatever your fitness goal is, this cliche applies.

Looking good Billy Ray…..Our Clothing Lines

Like many fledgling companies, we got hit pretty bad by the pandemic.

We had hoped to have our full clothing range available in our store by now. But this hasn’t been possible, so we have had to adapt for the interim.

This means there are currently far fewer items available and we are reliant on third parties to produce our products.

You can be assured, however, that we still only work with 100% organic, sustainable materials and manufacturers who employ sustainable practices.

Ultimately, we will build our supply and manufacturing lines so we have total control over the quality and sustainability of our clothing.

This isn’t just to ensure we bring you the highest quality products we can. But also so we can all be proud of the conditions that brought the product to life.

This means ensuring safe, fair conditions for the people who make our products and a managed, sustainable impact on the environment that gave us the raw materials to make them.

We’ll keep you posted as our capacity grows and hope you’ll stick around for the ride and grow with us as we build the Point Blank community.
