"What are you training for?" is a common questions we hear and many people have many different answers, many don't have an answer at all!
Are we not all "training for life" to live better, to wake up each morning with the ability to say, "yes today I am living!"
That's what this weeks show is all about as we break down physical, mental and emotional training, talk about setting goals based around sustainability, fun, aesthetics and living.
Enjoy the show!
If you are a regular listener to the show you will recall the interview I did with Corey Phillpott back in November in episode 677 where Corey told us he was going to pull a 1.6ton car 42.2km in March this year!
Well when he said it to me and I saw the look in his eyes on the call I knew he would do it. In this show he shares the experience with us, the underlying motivation and all the feelings and emotion of setting a new world record. All this from a 23 year old. Mind blowing what his future will hold!

Technology is changing us in many ways, it's bringing us a whole load of benefits but at the same time a whole load of distractions and is like a bad addiction to many. How can we manage it better, use it to our advantage and cut our addictions?
Two things gave me the idea for recording this show. Firstly last weeks show with Brian Bogert and secondly was reading Satya Nadellas book "Hit Refresh"
Yes we are in a very technologically advanced world, yes there are benefits, yes there are draw backs but it is somehow still early in many ways and I think we can take some steps to make technology work for us and not the other way round.
Thanks for listening.
When he was just seven years old, his left arm was detached in a vehicle accident. Throughout his childhood people often asked, “What happened to your arm?” They expected a sports injury or playground mishap—not the raw, painful truth that a truck tore it off. But instead of succumbing to suffering because of the injury, Brian fully recovered and flourished with a reattached arm, thanks to his persistent and proactive focus. He learned early how to move beyond what happened to him by creating an intentional mindset.
Brian Bogert is a passionate human behavior and performance coach, speaker, business strategist, top sales professional and philanthropic leader who believes in helping growth-minded individuals achieve the best version of themselves: their most authentic selves.
Brian teaches how to leverage radical authenticity and awareness to create the intentional life you’ve been dreaming of, but have struggled to create. His revolutionary strategy—embrace pain to avoid suffering—has helped individuals and companies break beyond their normal to achieve the success in life and business that they’ve always wanted. If you want to create a life of no limits and gain freedom, Brian and his team will get you there.
Everyone is talking about morning rituals and routines which are important but how often do we hear people asking out our evening rituals? Aren't the things that we do in the closing hours of the day as important because they impact our sleep which in turn impacts our readiness to carry out our morning rituals and have a great day?
Brian's journey of helping people create transformational change in their lives began at the age of 14. As a result of experiencing significant emotional pain throughout childhood, a desire was kindled to understand the human psyche and uncover the keys to unlocking a person's inner power. Brian earned his degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado, taking particular interest in neuroscience, psycho-pathology, clinical psychology, and the principles of peak performance.
Just a few short years after graduating from college, Brian's love for another creature — none other than "man's best friend" — and his knack for training and behavioral rehabilitation led to a career in dog behavior. Brian is a Certified Dog Trainer (IACP-CDT) with extensive experience as a practicing dog behavior specialist. He is a former Vice President and member of the Board of Directors for the International Association of Canine Professionals, and is the owner of Altitude Dog Training and Uptown Dog in Longmont, Colorado. His expertise of the interplay between dog behavior and human psychology gave rise to his first book, Transformational Dog Training: Bring Out the Best in Your Dog by Bringing Out the Best in Yourself, which explores the critical relationship between human stability and personal development, and the behavioral stability of companion animals.

Think about 30 years ago (if you were around) and what was a "fitness coach" back then? What was their role for you as a gym goer and also what was their role in society. Then fast forward to today, are your expectations the same? Do they deliver the same. Interesting huh?
Well thats what I talk all about in todays show. From mum teaching aerobics on a squash court to various parts of my job and the industry as it is these days and the huge impact the last 12 months has had on it.
Hope you enjoy.
