How To Feel Motivated In The Morning
2 December 2020
Developing An Evening Routine To Ensure Great Sleep
When we start working with many of our clients, they are struggling with energy, struggling with getting up in the morning and the 3/4pm slump where it feels like your enthusiasm and concentration can go out the window!
How Your Drinking Habits May Affect Your Productivity
When many of our clients come to us, they’re noticing the amount that they’re drinking to relax is creeping up. They’re feeling a bit less control with it and the impact it may be having on their waistline. They don’t jump out of bed in the morning and they don’t feel like they have enough energy, or as much as they’d like.
How To Develop A Morning Routine To Enhance Your Productivity
If you’re anything like the clients we work with, when they first come to us, you are rolling out of bed and eating a breakfast that you are not particularly enthusiastic about (it’s just the habitual cereal and/or toast) and getting straight on your emails. Especially now that many of us are still working from home.
What Do You Truly Believe You Are Capable Of?
What do you truly believe you are capable of? I’m talking about your feelings deep down surrounding your capability, not just your thoughts on the surface . When many of our clients come to work with us: They haven’t been as strong and fit as they want to be for a while They struggle with […]
How To Find Headspace And Create the Right Environment
A lot of us found working out at home over lockdown really hard. A different environment, more interruptions, less ‘setting up’ of one space for a particular task or experience. The gym = exercise The office = work Home = family We lost that fixed denomination. How do we find that when most our activities […]
Why Your Bum Muscles Aren’t Working For You
Our bum muscles are arguably one of our most important muscle groups; they’re the biggest group and the ones that are almost always not working the way they should. Every minute we’re sat on them, our bum muscles are going to sleep and when we stand back up, they don’t necessarily kick back into action.
Feeling Like You Never Have Time
Working long hours and feeling like you have no time for yourself is something that I’m certainly familiar with. When I used to work in an office, I would work 8-12 hours a day, driven to get things done and achieve my objectives, and then I would get home feeling exhausted, with no energy for […]
Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Bad Posture
We’ve all been at the desk and when it gets to 3 or 4pm we’re starting to hunch over. We start to feel it in our back, neck and shoulders. We think about changing our posture but that thought isn’t good enough.
How To Use Weights To Age Amazingly
We’re talking about weights today: we’re big fans of weight training. We feel that weight training is non negotiable if you want to be a human that thrives, performs, has a fun life and achieves your goals. Weight training is a non-negotiable part of my schedule because of the benefits that it transfers into our […]
Apparently Personal Trainers Don’t Drink Or Eat Cr*p….
Have you heard the myth going around that personal trainers don’t drink or eat crap? A lot of people who aren’t in the fitness world feel that personal trainers live in this paragon of virtue life: They don’t drink They don’t eat pizza or chocolate They don’t go out socialising They go to bed at […]
You Don’t Have To Lose All Your Muscle In Your 40’s & 50’s.
We all know the ‘fact’ that once you get past 30 it gets harder to maintain muscle. The facts on paper are that in our 40’s and 50’s we start to lose muscle. Our body finds it harder to retain muscle due to it being an expensive tissue to have because it takes a lot […]
Why Is Investing In Yourself Important Now?
There’s no time like the present, it isn’t going to get any easier the longer you leave it. When we get this burst of energy and desire to do something and make a change, the energy is powerful and riding that wave of decision is better, more efficient and easier than nearly doing each time […]
How To Prioritise Yourself Without Guilt
The feeling you get when you’ve got more jobs to do at work and you know that your family want you to be at home. You go and do something you love, and you get the guilt that you should be working or at home with your family.
How Does It Feel To Leave Things Undone?
I’m in the group of people that struggle to leave the office at the end of the day with emails left in my inbox regardless of their importance. I came across the idea of leaving things undone and becoming comfortable with the idea that you can’t do everything in one day and we have to […]
What’s good and what’s hard about being goal orientated?
This is for those of you that set their sights on a goal and go hell for leather to achieve it, nothing will get in the way, you’re very focused and have high expectations for yourself and possibly others. I sit with you as a recovering perfectionist and control enthusiast!
Are You Strong Enough To Survive A Crisis?
There is a film about a tsunami where the main character is hanging off the edge of a car park by his fingertips whilst holding his children. During the scene, he must pull himself and the weight of his child that would probably be around 15kg to survive, I often question whether I would be able to do this.
Your Environment Creates Your Results
I want to talk to you today about your environment and how that affects the results of any experience you’re having, including work, personal life and training. Your environment directly impacts the results you get in return for your effort.
Injury Mindset: You Are Not Weak
Today I’m going to be talking to you about injury mindset. An injury could mean anything from a regular ache and pain that you have, regular stiffness, or a full-blown thing which knocks you off your feet. This includes; a knee injury when you’re running and it’s stopping you from training, back pain that is […]
Redesigning Your Body To Thrive
When you feel tired, you think ‘I’m going to push on’. When your back’s aching, you don’t get up because you have a lot to do and therefore, you focus on doing that thing. The body’s demanding that you need a drink, you might need the loo, they can feel like they’re really distracting and it’s annoying.
