We are now in 2020, with that comes; a new year, new decade, new me BS. It's not uncommon to see every gym run a "challenge" in this period. There are even $10,000 prizes for challenge winners. As a gross generalisation it's very rarely to benefit the client but to increase their own bottom line by capitalising on individuals who are stuck on the hamster wheel of trying every diet under the sun on international diet day (Monday) & feel they need a new year to make an impact to their health.

It’s well known that golfers will do just about anything to enhance their performance on the course. Almost everything is on the table if it will add extra metres or take a few strokes off the handicap but quite often while the intent is there the application could improved for increased results.

Buy a new $800 driver.

Spend that on a trainer to increase your ROM, upper body connection, posture, decreased injury rates, improved conditioning (read less capitulation on the back 9) & power output. H...

This article came about as I sat at my desk reviewing movement data for an athlete & current world top 100 golf professional, when I received a text from a golfing buddy.

“Check this article out, I feel like they are just trying to sell controversy”

If you haven’t read the article, here is the link for it. (Click Here)

Perhaps Adrian Ballantyne is a great bloke, however he has missed the mark completely on this one. He’s taken it upon himself to inform his readers of the drastic consequences to yo...

Connect, don't compete –

“Help others;

you will always stand taller with someone else on your shoulders”

There is plenty of business for everyone. If you are good at what you do, people will train with you, pay for programmes or take your nutrition advice. If you backstab, bad mouth, swindle or make yourself appear taller by cutting others legs off, it’s inevitable you will come undone. Maybe not straight away but you will.

If the best thing for a client is to refer them out to someone else, do it....

Take Away Point: Try not to make these mistakes, embrace self growth via reflection.

We all have varying degrees of narcissism expressed as pride, insecurity, lack of insight & poor self reflection. If you choose to take the Ostrich approach & bury your head in the sand your growth as a human & company is severely limited. No one has ever gone through life or business mistake free, upon reflection as my company approaches 10 ye...

Take Away Point: Your money is important, spend it on people who apply science, research & individualised health programmes.

Following on from my previous blog post calling out nurses who try to turn people away from activity, comes this post. Now if you follow sports you know who Tom Brady is. You may not know he has just released his first book:

I normally wouldn't have an issue with this. Tell us about your home life, about your childh...

Take away point: Your health is incredibly important. Pick and choose who you listen to wisely.

First some context, when we train or exercise our objective is to purposely stress the body to the point that we gain a positive adaptation not an injury. However, injuries are unfortunately part of living. One of my long-term clients who is approaching 50, rang me a few days after a gym session from the ER. Her shoulder had succumbed...

Lesson: Most likely leaving with one thing to improve your nutrition

Below is a few of the key points I have discovered over the last 9 years engulfing myself in health & fitness research to build a trusted opinion on the topic. It's by no means an exhaustive list but for the majority of us these will take us towards our goals instead of confusing the majority chasing the 1%'ers. 

Skipping breakfast;...

Lesson: The ability to differentiate between motivation & discipline

*There are no pictures, have the discipline to get all the way through without needing a distraction.

You won’t always be motivated; you must learn to be disciplined. There are 2 basic ways to get yourself to complete a task; motivation or discipline.  The first, despite almost always being the wrong option is motivation. This, the most social media popular way is compr...

I find it to be a weird term, life coach. I understand there are coaches for everything else, so it makes sense. There is literally a million and 1 ways to have a "good", "successful" or "perfect" life, I'm not sure anyone has it down to an art form. However, this article only came about because for the second time in a short period I was called something that is not on my business card, Life Coach & Philosopher. (To be fair, I get called a lot of things every week mostly when I give people the...
