For those not only looking to lose some pounds this January, but to keep them off for the year too, few are better placed to teach you how than a pro athlete.

In this month’s issue of Square Mile, international rugby player James Haskell breaks down the fitness and diet regime that keeps him at the top of his game. Speaking to celebrity personal trainer Matt Roberts, Haskell reveals that variety is key:

"I do weights training and rugby training, but also boxing, jiu-jitsu, swimming, yoga… I fill my day up with training," he says, "It’s all about full-body conditioning."

When it comes to nutrition, Haskell says prefers a diet that focuses on naturally sourced nutrients rather than overdosing on supplements. 

"There’s a feeling out there that protein shakes can offer miracles…(but) it’s important to get the diet right first – it’s the foundation of everything you do," he says.

Fitness aside, Haskell also opens up about his life outside of the game including his personal style, perpetual love for Vegas and his belief that he will be back in the England squad for the next World Cup.

The full Q & A is available in this month’s Fitness Issue of Square Mile.
