The Science Of Fatloss Online Certification Course Sets a Certain Standard Of Personal Trainer

The Science Of Fat Loss Certification Course combines cutting edge science presented in a very easy to understand language.

• This comes along with an abundance of practical experience gained from Phil’s 30 plus years training people from all walks of life which will give you the tools to get RESULTS with every client you work with.

• I see the Science Of Fat Loss Course as being one of the most valuable certifications that a trainer can have for the simple reason that literally 99% of people go the gym to lose weight so you better ensure you have that genuine expertise on the subject if you want safe, effective and long term RESULTS.

The most valuable course to ensure you have genuine expertise on the subject of fat loss if you want safe, effective and long term RESULTS.

• The Science Of Fat Loss Certification course will set new standards in the fitness industry that if you want RESULTS then you need to be far more than just a trainer today.

• Whether you are working with a young elite athlete who wants to get leaner for their sport through to the overweight menopausal female who can’t stop piling the pounds on even though she’s eating less and exercising more they both want the same results to get leaner but you will need completely different strategies to get them there and this course will give you that knowledge to do so.


“Taking the opportunity to learn from Phil whilst taking the Science Of Fat Loss Certification Course has been hugely beneficial to me both personally and professionally. With Phil’s extensive experience and background in elite sport I knew this course would provide me with real, practical knowledge that I am able to implement with my athletes and clients to help optimise their health and performance. A course that delivers exceptional content that I highly recommend to others whether working within elite sport or with the general public”.



The most effective way to lose excess fat safely, effectively and long term is to…

Focus on optimising your health and building muscle and this is what this course will teach you.

This is the exact opposite message of what’s been given for decades by the medical and weight loss industry which banged on repeatedly to reduce your calories and exercise more trust me this doesn’t build health and it won’t build muscle which is why this message has failed miserably for so many people and for so many years.


We have a plethora of misinformation out there today on how to achieve a healthy body weight

Remember there is a big difference between weight loss and fat loss. Why? Weight loss can mean muscle loss, glycogen (stored carbohydrate) loss, for every gram of glycogen you lose you will lose 3 grams of water. Also when your body loses weight especially quickly it will increase our muscle breakdown hormones, decrease our muscle building hormones and crash our metabolism which can last for many years after the diet is over this often leads to a skinnier fatter version of ourselves the longer and more often you keep dieting. Once people become obese, their bodies are programmed to regain any weight they manage to lose.

This cutting-edge course will give you all the information you need on how to lose this excess fat safely, effectively and long term by focusing on building health and building muscle.


So, when I use the term body composition it refers to us achieving optimal metabolism, increasing our metabolically active fat burning muscle tissue whilst lowering our body fat % into the healthy zone. The Science Of Fat Loss Course was born out of my 30 plus years of training people from all walks of life from Olympic athletes, professional teams, professional athletes in multiple sports through to members of the public who simply just want to acquire better health and lose weight. My conclusion over this time period is very simple… 

You must achieve optimum health both physically and emotionally and focus on building muscle if you are to successfully lose excess body fat.

We don’t have an over fat society we have a under muscled malnourished society!

Phil coaching in PRP Headquarters

“I first met Phil when Interned with him multiple times doing his strength and conditioning courses which were awesome and since then Phil has been my go-to encyclopaedia for ANYTHING health-related. Having worked with Phil in different capacities over the years it’s safe to say his knowledge surrounding health/hormones is second to none. No matter how complex the question he always has an answer. Thanks Phil for your on-going help.”

“Having my bloods done with Phil Richards contributed significantly towards me becoming the World’s Strongest Man, from the very comprehensive blood chemistry analysis that Phil carries out he was able to advise me on exactly what supplements I needed and also the best nutritional strategies for maximising my performance”

Phil Richards has a ton of experience as an elite strength and conditioning coach. I’ve worked with many athletes/coaches over many years and his credentials are second to none, it was a no brainer getting him involved with my strength and conditioning program getting me ready for my big fight.”

Phil training Martyn Ford


“Working with Phil was fun, exciting and always interesting. I didn’t ever really know what was next. He keeps sessions varied and challenging at all time’s. With emphasis on specific performance drills that are relevant and not allowing you ever to feel safe or comfortable in a session.



I truly believe that this is the most advanced course available anywhere in the world on how to achieve optimum body composition. The course information is not only the accumulation of my 30 plus years of training people at all levels and from all backgrounds but also participating in multiple courses on nutrition, hormones, cell biology, detoxification, mitochondria, immunology, gut microbiome, blood chemistry analysis and a plethora of strength & conditioning courses. I also travelled extensively throughout the world in my quest to acquire the best knowledge available and interned with many world leading experts in the field of strength training, nutrition, body fat composition, blood chemistry analysis & hormones.

keegan smith

“Phil’s experience in top-level sport and dealing with health problems makes him uniquely qualified to bring the best nutritional information into the athletic world. His training methods are simple – direct & brutal and would increase the standards of world sport if applied more widely. 10 days with Phil Richards changes my future as a strength coach. His tough love wisdom put me on a new path for the coming season where I was the strength coach for the 2013 premiership winning Sydney Roosters. I don’t think we would have done it without Phil’s influence.”





“Phil Richards Science Of Fat Loss Book is one of the best books I’ve read on the subject and every trainer should read this book”


I am the author of 4 books including my best-selling science of fat loss book known by many trainers as the bible of fat loss which I published in 2014

“Hey Phil, just wanted to give you a massive thank you for running my nutritional, supplements and strength and conditioning program for the last 4 years. As a 35 yr old full-time teacher and father of 2 the odds of me making my first Olympic team were quite simply zero until I met you. It is unheard of in our business that you could guide 2 athletes, a sprinter and a distance runner (two completely different animals) and get RESULTS. Can’t get higher than that. Dreams do come true pal”




Science Of Fat Loss course will also contain some of the most valuable research from the 4 books I’ve written which are my ultimate strength & conditioning book, science of fat loss book, high intensity interval training book and STOP Killing Yourself With Your Knife, Fork & Thoughts book.

These books took me many years to write for example the Science Of Fat Loss book alone took 10 years of information gathering whilst I worked as a head strength & conditioning coach in professional sport and in one of those years, I was employed by 3 professional teams which were a premiership football team, a premiership rugby union team and a team in the super league (rugby league) purely as a consultant to optimise body fat % amongst the players.



Nina Ross

Phil Training Amir Khan would have to regularly get him down to 5% body fat. In the time Phil Trained Amir, he put on 13.5 pounds of muscle and lost 6% body fat.

I would regularly carry out over 130 body fat composition tests per week on these players and had to come up with various strategies for those players who were struggling to get into the optimum body fat % range for their sport and position so they could achieve better performance.

It’s fair to say I learnt a lot that year and in particular how ineffective exercise is at dropping body fat no matter how hard or how often you are training you must get everything else right in your life if you are going to get lean from your health, lifestyle and emotional well-being relying on exercise only will fail miserably for most people.

Remember exercise is a stressor and if you are being bombarded by multiple stressors in your life then the likelihood of you responding to exercise in a positive way is very unlikely you simply train but do not gain.

before and after Phil Richards Health & Fat loss Plan


The above picture was taken several years ago it was a 28-day transformation of Melinda Cooksey  who was entering a Miss Fitness competition and I consulted for her which as you can see from the photo the results were very impressive. It was achieved on a ketogenic diet, resistance training and interval running. The ironic thing about this picture which we didn’t know at the time was that even though Melinda looked awesome she had breast cancer and if we had run blood work on her we would have picked it up immediately.

This is why I am such a massive advocate of being able to interpret blood results with your clients it genuinely could save their lives and also ensure the clients you are training are healthy enough to be able to withstand intense exercise and are getting the right dietary advice.


Stop using the shotgun approach to diet and exercise with your clients you must understand that without correct lab testing with your clients you are always guessing on what the correct nutrition, supplement and exercise program is. STOP guessing and START testing.

blood test

“As you know I’d seen and spent the best part of £3000 seeing privately various consultants none of which had any effect. Within one week of starting the program with Phil my health was measurably better and within a month I’d say I was 100% better. My wife noted a positive change in my personality and I just started to feel healthy again. The improvements to my health have been so noticeable that I’ve become somewhat of a walking advert for Phil Richards.

I have been actively singing praises and people who know me can see a marked difference in my health so it’s kind of an easy sell. Thanks again for all your help and advice Phil, your knowledge and book are a revelation and I’m living proof that it works.”



The Importance Of Blood Chemistry And Stool Analysis

Over the last several years I have completed multiple courses on blood chemistry and the gut microbiome and have analysed many hundreds of people’s bloods and stool samples from the world’s strongest man through to women struggling with weight gain as they are going through the menopause and literally everything in between from stage 4 cancer through to heart disease. The lab testing really does takes away the guesswork from what the optimum diet should be for a person to follow not only to achieve better health but to able to lose fat and gain muscle. And trust me it is very different for every single person you will ever train but yet usually the fitness world or medical system will treat everyone with the same dietary and exercise protocol to lose weight and there is very often no consideration for the incredible biochemical individuality people have.

For example you can easily have someone who absolutely thrives on copious amounts of carbohydrates and eats really low amounts of fat and gets really lean and health and on the flipside another client will get super lean and healthy on a very high protein and a low carb diet. The blood and stool analysis will tell you whether the diet you or your client is currently on is moving them towards health and optimum body composition or moving them towards obesity, diabetes and ill health.

From my clinical analysis and extensive research, I have also come to the conclusion that there are a number of blood and stool markers that if you get in the optimal range no matter what your age, sex or goal is then achieving optimal health and body composition is so much more achievable. Throughout the course I will teach you what these markers are, and this is definitely one of the most important discoveries in my 30 plus years as a high-performance coach and by the way I have made every mistake in the book on my way to discovering what works and what doesn’t to get people leaner and healthier.



“I had followed Phil‘s work for quite a few years and I had reached a point in my life where I didn’t want my health to go the same way as my parents and be on medication for the rest of my days. I had my bloods done and what Phil told me really made me sit up and take notice. My health really wasn’t as good as I’d hoped for. Amongst other things I had the lowest vitamin D levels he had ever seen! Bit of a shock to the system being honest.

The scariest thing was I had no indication of anything underlying and I felt ok, but my bloods said otherwise. Thanks to Phil’s guidance and knowledge I’ve started to turn my health around. I realise it will take time to turn things around but that is exactly what I’m in the process of doing.

I’m just glad that I contacted Phil when I did as I’d still be totally oblivious about what was happening to me. I have made a commitment to myself to get my bloods analysed every year or so. If you really want to know where your health is heading and how you can change it for the better then I can’t recommend Phil highly enough.”



Here are the 15 seminars that will be covered in the science of fat loss certification course. I take you through each seminar going into great detail with each seminar having a questionnaire at the end to ensure you fully understand the content delivered.

Science of fat loss online course

“From reading Phil’s first book to actually studying under him (online) I have personally learnt more and have been able to use these solid practices coaching my own clients. Phil’s personable approach and years of experience are a fantastic combination and the online courses I have done are truly exceptional. I look forward to working with him in person and having Phil as a mentor is an inspiration.

If you work in the fitness industry or just want to know how the body works and burn fat and become healthier there is no better man!”



Why counting calories and exercising more fails miserably for so many people who are trying to achieve safe, effective and long-term fat loss?

Don’t focus on counting calories and trying to burn the fat off with cardio for weight loss focus instead on building muscle and optimising hormones. Obesity is primarily due to hormonal imbalances not calorific imbalances. Also, there are huge individual responses that people have to foods from a hormonal perspective and I give you all the research on this in this seminar.  Even the same meal with the same calories can have a completely different metabolic effect on our bodies eaten at different times of the day.

Don’t base your hope for getting lean on counting calories focus more on achieving optimal health and especially hormonal balance. Remember it is our hormones that will decide whether you gain fat, lose fat, gain muscle or lose muscle and a calorie from a doughnut is going to have a completely different biological effect on your hormones than a calorie from whey protein. There is also a massive genetic difference amongst individuals towards becoming obese and this is often overlooked when it comes to fat loss.

From an evolutionary perspective we have also endured a couple of very surprising gene mutations over 40 million years which made us very effective at storing fat and there are a few nutrients which can switch these genes off making fat loss much more achievable.


Our brain is the only organ in our body that determines our fatness level and if you want to get lean and healthy you better know how this system works or you will struggle all your life with your weight.

I can say with 100% certainty if you don’t acquire optimal brain health which is very difficult to do today in our toxic and nutrient deficient diets then you will find it very difficult to achieve a healthy body composition. Surprisingly your gut health will also have a big impact on your brain health they really do work in synergy and you’ll learn how these organs interact with each other. You will also learn the incredible dirty tricks that the food industry makes to keep us addicted to their processed malnourished toxic foods to keep us coming back for more as we get sicker, fatter and dumber. There are a number of blood markers from hormones through to certain nutrients especially omega 3 fatty acids that can indicate how well your brain is functioning.


Insulin is a hormone that can make us lean and muscular or fat and flabby, so you really want to get insulin on your side if you want to get lean and healthy.

Unfortunately, insulin resistance is a primary contributing factor behind our obesity and diabetes epidemic but thankfully can be very easily resolved through proper nutrition, supplementation, lifestyle and exercise especially building muscle. Insulin resistance simply means the cells have stopped responding to the message that insulin is sending them which is to store nutrients that’s what insulin does it’s a storage hormone. The surprising thing that you will learn in this seminar is what is the main cause of insulin resistance and its not an over consumption of carbohydrates as what most people think including doctors and endocrinologists though carbohydrates in excess can contribute. There are a number of very important blood tests which can clearly see if you are moving towards insulin resistance or diabetes both type 1 and 2.


The very disturbing role that toxins, pesticides and endocrine disruptors are playing in our obesity and diabetes epidemic

We are literally exposed to thousands of man-made toxins daily which are significantly contributing to our obesity and diabetes epidemic through many different mechanism’s which you’ll learn about in this seminar. Toxins can even stimulate the body to lay down extra fat without there being any extra calories consumed. Also, toxins have a very debilitating effect on how our hormones communicate with our cells and these are known as endocrine disrupting chemicals and you’ll become very familiar with them in this seminar. Also, If you lose weight quickly without a proper detoxification program in place the research clearly shows that this can have a devastating effect on your health and can also crush your thyroid function long term to.

So, detoxification is absolutely essential today in acquiring optimum body fat composition as well as optimum health and you’ll learn what the most scientifically proven methods are for detoxification. There are a number of blood and stool markers which will clearly show how well you are detoxing through the liver, kidney and stool and I’ll explain what these are in this seminar.


Why the health of your digestive system plays such a massive role in our ability to build muscle and lose fat

You will learn why in this seminar the importance of having optimum stomach acid, bile production, pancreatic function and a healthy gut microbiome is absolutely fundamental if you want to gain muscle and lose excess fat. For example, you can do a faecal transplant from an obese patient place that sample into a lean patient and after a few months the lean patient through no change in their diet or exercise programs starts to gain weight.

Also, if you have low stomach acid and poor enzyme production from the pancreas you will struggle significantly to break down food to use as fuel and for building muscle and I’ll explain what the most effective lab tests are for detecting what your current health of you digestive system is. Blood and stool testing will clearly indicate how healthy your digestive system is functioning and I will explain clearly which tests are the most accurate and why.


Nutritional Immunology will give you the fundamental scientific information on not only how the immune system functions but what nutrients must be present for the immune system to function optimally

I’ve included this seminar for the very simple reason that a depressed immune system will always leads to disease and unfortunately it is very easy today to have an immune system which is not functioning optimally due to nutrient deficiencies and the high levels of toxins that we are exposed to daily. In this seminar, I will teach you how important innate immunity is which can be considered our first line of defence and a lot of the effectiveness of innate immunity will depend on the health of your gut where up to 80% of your immune system resides.

The main cells of innate immunity are the neutrophils, macrophages, dendritic cells and natural killer cells and these immune cells have a massive requirement for certain nutrients and without them being present they simply can’t function and unfortunately from my lab analysis these nutrients are very often deficient in the Western diet. We also have a second line of defence call the adaptive immune system which comprises of the B and T cells which also rely on certain nutrients to be present in optimum amounts if they are going to be able to kill viruses and cancer cells.

Our immune system declines with age, but research is clearly showing that if you keep a vigorous exercise regime in place along with a plethora of certain nutrients which you will learn all about in this ground – breaking seminar then you can significantly slow the decline of your immune system.


Nutritional cardiology focuses in on building healthy blood, blood vessels and a healthy heart

Why? For nutrients and hormones to be efficiently carried around our bodies and delivered to our trillions of cells it is totally dependent on the health of our cardiovascular system. Also for example the health of your red blood cells will determine how much oxygen your cells will receive to make ATP (energy) so you better know how to build healthy red blood cells and trust me it takes much more than iron and ironically high iron levels are genuinely catastrophic for our health and very common amongst the people I test in my clinic.

Unfortunately, many things today can significantly decrease the health of our cardiovascular system from nutrient deficiencies, toxicity, stress and inflammation. This is a ground – breaking seminar that will also reveal the most important blood tests you need to get in the optimal range to ensure you have good cardiovascular health and cholesterol isn’t one of them.


Focussing on DHEA, Cortisol & Testosterone

There is a very strong interrelationship between DHEA, Cortisol & Testosterone and you want to ensure all 3 are in the optimal ranges or there will be trouble ahead from an inability to gain muscle, lose fat and emotional issues. Dehydroepiandrosterone or DHEA as it is more often called is the most abundant steroid in the bloodstream and is present at even higher levels in brain tissue. DHEA levels are known to drop precipitously with age, falling 90% from age 20 to age 90. DHEA is known to be a precursor to the numerous steroid sex hormones (including oestrogen and testosterone) which serve well-known functions, but the specific biological role of DHEA itself is not so well understood. Knowing your DHEA levels is absolutely paramount if you want optimum health and body fat composition and you will learn what those levels are in this seminar and how to ensure you get them into the optimal range.

Cortisol is a hormone that belongs to a family of steroid hormones known as glucocorticoids. It’s secreted by the adrenal cortex, which is located in your adrenal glands that sit atop your kidneys. Cortisol is the main glucocorticoid in humans. Glucocorticoids affect every cell in the body so needless to say, they’re pretty important. Cortisol in excess can break down muscle which obviously is not good and to little cortisol production and you will have zero motivation to train so ensuring that you are producing an optimal amount is paramount and you this seminar will give you that information.

Testosterone is crucial for both sexes often referred to as the male hormone but surprisingly females produce 10 times more testosterone than they do oestrogen. So, for both sexes, testosterone is absolutely essential for building muscle, losing fat and a plethora of other essential bodily functions that you will learn in this seminar. Just knowing your testosterone levels is not enough to ensure you have optimal free testosterone available to stimulate lipolysis (fat burning) and increasing muscle tissue you must look at sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), Prolactin, DHT, Oestrogen and cortisol which all effect how much testosterone you can use.


Focussing in on progesterone and oestrogen which are also essential to have the optimal ratios in both sexes if one is to achieve optimum body fat composition…

and vibrant health especially emotional. Unfortunately, today we live in a very oestrogenic environment which decreases progesterone due to their antagonistic relationship and this will increase the likelihood of obesity, cancer and mood disorders. From age 35 to 50, there is a 75% reduction in the production of progesterone in the body. Oestrogen, during the same period, only declines by about 35%. By menopause, the total amount of progesterone made is extremely low, while oestrogen is still present in the body at about half its pre-menopausal level. With the gradual drop in oestrogen but a severe drop in progesterone, there is insufficient progesterone to counteract the amount of oestrogen in our body. This state is called oestrogen dominance by many groups but in reality, it is better termed Progesterone Insufficiency.

Oestrogen is necessary for optimal health, but it needs to be balanced by Progesterone. Progesterone stimulates fat loss and oestrogen stimulates fat gain so you better have these 2 hormones working synergistically together or your time at the gym will be wasted from a fat loss perspective. Progesterone in men. Progesterone is known as the “source hormone” and gets converted in the male body into testosterone and other hormones. As men age, their progesterone level drops. This causes testosterone production to fall and is one of many reasons why older men may have a low testosterone level.

You will learn in this seminar what the optimal ratios are and also when they are out why your thyroid will struggle and also why you start storing more fat and your buttocks and thighs (females).


Our thyroid hormones play a massive role in our ability to turn food into fuel and optimise and increase our mitochondria where around 95% of our energy is produced

Our thyroid hormones drive our metabolism but unfortunately there are so many factors in our food, environment and toxins that can significantly inhibit thyroid function leading to weight gain through to depression. Even the health of your liver and gut microbiome will contribute significantly to how well your thyroid hormones function and I’ll explain this fascinating connection in this seminar. I will also give you all the information you need to ensure your thyroid is functioning at optimum levels to keep you lean and explain what blood tests are needed to accurately assess your current thyroid state. Thyroid disorders are very often missed by conventional testing for so many reason s that will be covered in this seminar.


Building muscle is one of the most important things you MUST do to ensure you lose excess body fat for both male and female

There are zero calories in sleep, but you only need a couple of poor night sleeps in a row and you will gain weight without consuming any extra food and there is a ton of scientific research which clearly shows this to be the case. Growth hormone is especially effective at targeting abdominal fat and there are so many factors that will interfere with your growth hormone production and you need to know what they are to ensure you optimise one of our most important hormones for optimising our body composition especially around our abdominal area.

Melatonin is very rarely mentioned in the fat loss world even though it plays a major role not only as our sleep hormone but also stimulating brown fat metabolism. This seminar will teach you how to optimise your sleep, growth hormone and melatonin production which will significantly help you win your battle to get lean and healthy.

There are some very valuable blood markers that can see clearly if you are producing optimum amounts of growth hormone as well as getting adequate sleep.


Building muscle is one of the most important things you MUST do to ensure you lose excess body fat for both male and female

In this seminar you will learn how to optimise muscle protein synthesis through the mammalian target of rapamycin (Mtor) pathway which is one of the most important cell signalling pathways for muscle growth. And you’ll learn why as you get older you must increase your protein intake primarily from animal sources to stimulate Mtor and prevent sarcopenia (muscle wasting). I will also give you the most up to date scientifically researched information on how to decrease myostatin. Myostatin is the greatest single catabolic-limiting factor of muscle growth, athletic performance, and aging. In short, myostatin exists in our bodies and basically works to limit muscle growth, muscle tone, strength, and body shape.

I will also go through the importance of pre – during and post workout nutrition in this seminar as this will contribute significantly to you losing fat and gaining muscle. There are lots of blood markers that can tell us if you are consuming enough protein to stimulate Mtor plus also some nutrient markers which need to be in the optimal ranges to have an effect on decreasing myostatin.


Learn what are the most effective training methods, exercises, sets, reps, tempo and rest periods for building muscle and losing fat

I will give you the absolute latest cutting-edge useable information on muscle hypertrophy not only from the scientific literature but also my 30 plus years working as an elite strength and conditioning coach training professional athletes in almost every sport. Muscle is our largest organ in the body for fat burning and glucose disposal you MUST BUILD MUSCLE to LOSE FAT no matter what your age or sex. There is also a new benefit for muscle which hasn’t long been discovered and that is the benefit it has on enhancing our immunity too. Also, sarcopenia is a massive concern for the over 40 plus client which means muscle loss through ageing and in this seminar as well as through this whole course you’ll have a plethora of strategies to prevent and reverse sarcopenia.


If you don’t understand the fundamentals of program design, then you will struggle to make gains from your training program.

There is no point being healthy and raring to train if you have very little idea or experience on how to write a strength & conditioning program to ensure you get RESULTS or your clients get RESULTS.

I’ve written literally thousands of programs over my career and I will share with you in this seminar what works and what doesn’t at all levels from general public through to Olympians. A lot of what I will cover in this seminar is based on the conjugated method of strength training which I learned from the strongest gym in the world (Westside Barbell). The conjugated method is where you combine max effort training, dynamic training and work capacity/hypertrophy in the same training week. I did multiple internships at Westside Barbell and I was the first European strength coach to intern there in 2003. I then modified Westside firstly for a professional rugby team, I was working with at the time as head of strength & conditioning and in my first season with this team I applied my modified version of Westside (conjugated system) and they won 26 out of 26 this had never been done before or since.

I then applied the conjugated method to multiple sports/athletes from other premiership rugby teams, premiership football, professional boxing, Olympic athletes, Miss Fitness, triathlete’s, world’s strongest man etc where all these athletes needed 2 things to compete at the highest-level optimum bodyfat composition for that sport and optimum conditioning levels.


Creating the right mindset for achieving optimum health, optimum body fat composition and achieving our purpose and goals in life.

Our thoughts can have a profound effect on our health good or bad and in this seminar, I will give you the absolute science on how our thoughts affect our physiology. For example, chronic prolonged stress as been shown to increase the number of stem cells you convert into fat cells which could have become muscle cells or other cells. Yes, stress can make you fat, so it is essential that you control stress if you want to achieve optimum body composition.

Our thoughts can also heal and repair us or break us down and cause disease so learn to be conscious of your thoughts and get them working for you and not against you most people today are experts at self – sabotage.

You will also learn how to create the right mindset to train with intensity and purpose 99% of people who train in gyms today fail to get results quite simply because they train with so little intensity or purpose. Whether I’m training an Olympic athlete, the worlds strongest man or Mary who’s a menopausal woman I expect the same effort in training, and I expect nothing less than 100%.

phil internship and calipers

Here I’m pictured teaching my students how to use body fat calliper’s correctly because it’s not actually how heavy you are on the scale that matters. What should be the focus is how much fat you are carrying.

“I have known Phil now for a number of years. His drive, passion and commitment to be the best far exceeds that of his peers. Over the past 15 years Phil has tirelessly sought out the best practitioners worldwide to learn from, all at his own expense. I can confidently say that he is now at the forefront of conditioning and nutrition practices both in professional sport and respective to general health of the public.

I had the pleasure of working closely with Phil during the 2006-7 season as Leicester Tigers almost became the first club to win every available trophy, narrowly missing this goal by losing the final game of the season. Phil’s contribution that season was invaluable. I would highly recommend Phil to any sporting organization in the world today.”



Remember don’t be an average trainer the fitness industry is fully loaded with average trainers become an awesome trainer that really does make a difference.


Quite simply the trainer/coach who really wants to understand the science of building muscle and losing fat because let’s face it that’s what 99% of people who exercise want no matter what their age, sex, goal or sport is. This course will give you a level of knowledge that will significantly improve your RESULTS.


The course is based on the above 15 seminars you you have 12 months to complete the course if you want to achieve the science of fat loss certification.

After 12 months you will no longer have access to this course. It must be completed within 12 months to receive the certification.


ONLY £799 – Just £53 Per Seminar

I was advised by multiple businesses – people and trainers who have worked with me to charge a much higher price for this course and I genuinely mean much higher, but I wanted to make it available to all trainers/coaches who want to excel in their careers and are fed up with being average with average results.
