January 19, 2018
Episode 30 - The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!!
 
In this knockout episode we are graced with the company of the one and only Ian Streetz. Despite being an Aussie, he’s actually quite a sound guy and not one to mess with. 👊🏼 He floats like a moth and stings like a wasp (I think that’s the saying).
 
We go through his endless accolades, talk all things boxing, MMA, Muay Thai etc.
A true gent and a real honour to have him on our show.
 
Did we last the full 12 rounds..? Tune in to find out.

Ep. 28 - Why 2018 is going to be your best year yet!

January 5, 2018
Episode 28 - The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!!
 
New year, new goals... new you?
 
Often a new year spells the pressure of giving yourself New Years resolutions..
 
How often do you hear people saying “oooooo what are your New Years resolutions???” We hear it A LOT!
 
Having goals and targets for the year ahead are GREAT and we 100% recommend you do, but don’t feel pressurised into doing something you don’t necessarily want to do or think will benefit you in any way. Just because your mate is doing ‘veganveggypaleoketoskipbreakfastanuary’ doesn’t mean you have to as well!
 
If you love carbs wrapped in bacon, have your carbs wrapped in bacon and don’t let anyone deny you of that.
 
We talk about realistic goal setting, improving your current routine and daily regimes to better you as a person and make 2018 the most productive, rewarding and successful year yet!
 
This is an episode not to be missed!
 
ENJOY!

December 29, 2017
Episode 27 of The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!!
 
In our final episode of 2017 we discuss how far we’ve come this year and how it all began. We cannot thank you all enough for all your kind words and amazing reviews! Without you guys we would just be three guys talking to ourselves huddled around a mic...
 
It has been an epic 6 months and to think we’re closing in on 40,000 downloads is mind blowing! We’ve had 8 awesome guests (who we have learnt A LOT from), trained 3 competition winners, done a workout with FitBit, been invited to Ireland to speak at Wellfest in May next year, as well as having some incredible guests lined up for 2018. It’s going to be a fun year with some great things lined up for you to get involved with.
 
We cannot thank you all enough. Let’s take The 3 Dumbbells to the no. 1 spot on iTunes!
 
THANK YOU and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
 
Fred, Seb and Mat xxx

Ep. 26 - Life Analogies, Mulled Wine and Christmas with FaFitsake

December 22, 2017

Episode 26 of The 3 DumbBells now live!

This week we were delighted to have a top bloke and very good friend of ours - Lawrence Price aka FaFitsake on our show for our Christmas Special!

Lawrence has been in the game for over a decade now and is still doing what he loves whether it be training clients 1-2-1, getting beasted at ActiveMan events or writing songs for The 3 DumbBells (you’re in for a treat). It was awesome having another PT on the show where we could all discuss our different view points on how the industry is changing and what we’ve learned during our time so far. From cutting oranges to ripples in a pond the analogies used by Lawrence show off his philosophical prowess (and age) that all PTs could certainly learn a lesson or two from!

For us 3 Lawrence encompasses everything that’s right with the fitness industry and we truly believe that the industry needs more people like him!

Pour yourself a glass of mulled wine (we certainly did) and enjoy the ramblings of 4 PTs having a Christmas giggle.

Merry Christmas!

Ep. 25 - Living Forever, Going Against the Grain and Cystic Fibrosis Awareness with Sophie Grace Holmes

December 15, 2017
Episode 25 from The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!!
 
In this hugely inspirational episode we are graced with the company of the one and only Sophie Grace Holmes. 
 
This lady has to be our most inspiring guest we’ve had on to date. Her journey has been incredible and quite simply mind blowing. 
 
She was born with Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic condition that affects more than 10,400 people in the UK. This condition often limits people in what they can and can’t do, however, Sophie has proved doctors wrong endless times in what she has been able to achieve... she lives a perfectly normal life and does not let it affect what she does. Her mindset and mental strength is outstanding and she is someone who everyone who listens to this podcast can learn a thing or two from. 
 
Sophie it was a pleasure meeting you and we look forward to seeing what crazy challenges you can keep putting yourself through and keep achieving. You’ve certainly given us a kick up the backside and a reality slap around the face. Thank you! 
 
We hope you find this episode as incredible as we found it. 
 
ENJOY!

Ep. 24 - What NOT to fill your stockings with this Christmas!

December 8, 2017
Episode 24 from The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!! 
 
What not to buy this Christmas!!
 
With Christmas just a couple of weeks away everyone hits that panic button wondering what to get for their loved ones, frantically trying to find stocking fillers, and often looking online for inspiration. 
 
In this awesome episode (even if we do say so ourselves... 💁🏻‍♂💁🏻‍♂💁🏻‍♂) we help you out and advise you what’s good and what’s total CRAP with regards to gadgets and gizmos you see advertised in the health and fitness industry. 
 
Don’t just buy a fitness corset (waist trainer) because you’ve seen one of the Kardashians wearing it whilst taking their fluffy pets for a walk along the beach... Buy something that you know will be good and will have positive effects on someone’s life. 
 
Companies are very good at marketing and getting your attention buy using models to promote a product that they probably can’t even spell, let alone use...
 
Spend your money wisely this Christmas! 
 
ENJOY!

Ep. 22 - Exposing Everything with The Naked Professor

November 24, 2017
Episode 22 - The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!!
 
Who doesn’t love getting naked and running around feeling free with 3 other guys?
 
In this mind blowing episode we were graced with the company of our 6th guest, Ben aka. The Naked Professor. He is a life coach, personal trainer, blogger and mental health advocate.
 
For a while we have been wanting to talk about mental health and wellness but have lacked the knowledge and thorough understanding to feel able to talk freely about it. However, with Ben on board, this episode provides all of the above and much more with the occasional stab at Fred’s calfs, Seb’s nose and Mat’s extremely pale complexion and ginger hair. It is a cracker of an episode and not one to be missed!
 
Do you suffer from anxiety/depression? Are you self conscious?
Do you lack the confidence to talk to others about your problems and feel half the person you could potentially be?
 
This episode may well be able to help you out.
 
ENJOY!!!
