@groceryninja was a top level athlete who was always curious about the impact nutrition would have on both his and others performance, so he went digging. Fast forward over 10 years and Matt (originally from California) lives in Australia with his wife and mentors nutrition coaches around the world. Matt remains true to some powerful basics of community, speaking out, supporting other humans, being in nature and moving. This show is loaded with super interesting tips for living an awesome life and feeling great everyday through the right nutrition.
In April 2021 Troy Jones will run 60km for 65 days straight and in doing so cross the width of Australia from Perth to Sydney which is just under 4,000km
"I’m Troy Jones, I transform the bodies and minds of young people every day through mindset coaching and fitness. For the past 18 months I have embarked on a journey that often requires me to run 60kms in a day in 30 Degree heat.
Why would someone do this? Well, I went through undiagnosed depression for years that I masked with severe drug use. Every week I would have crippling thoughts that I escaped through using party drugs only making the cycle more and more severe as time went on. “
What a great guy and what great motivation. I really hope you enjoy the show and check out Troy’s site right here.
Welcome to a new year of podcasts. Rather than the normal tripe of setting big scary goals for the year and me firing you up with stuff everyone says but very few do I thought we would get a bit more real for this one.
I called in Tom Walker who has had a roller coaster of a journey with the sport of triathlon as he has followed his dreams to race at the world champs but of course like many of us COVID had different plans. For pretty much the first time ever Tom in how own words is "opening up" and in doing so going through some really cool therapy. I know this show was not easy for him to do but I also know it is the start of something truly great for him and hopefully for you also.
Enjoy the show.
Celebrate you say in these crazy times? Well yes of course. Whilst the situation for many may not be what they visualized it to be I can assure you if you are looking at things the right way the situation is all good!
Seasons greetings to you all. Thanks for listening to the show. This is just a nice short message to wish you all the very best.

"Hi, I’m Chris Williamson.
I host a podcast called Modern Wisdom, own an events company in the UK and coach people to get more out of life.
I think a lot about how to live a good life, finding your purpose, maximising human performance, productivity, fitness and psychology.
That being said – I’m curious about everything so you’ll also find me interviewing pornstars, discussing the likelihood of alien civilisations and discovering what it’s like to be a soldier in the Special Forces.
This website is a collection of stuff I’ve created and other people’s work which I’ve found fascinating. If you want to check out my writing, you’ll find all of my articles here.
My passion lies in learning about myself and the world around me. I hope that some of the things I’ve discovered might help you to make sense of life too.
Thank you for joining me.”
Sounds super interesting right? That is why I got Chris on the show…….he is super interesting.

Jani Brajkovič was on the podcast literally one year ago to the day. In that show we dove into Janis incredible cycling career, the highs and some of the lows.
This show is totally different in that Jani talks us through some insane life changes he has gone through in the last 6 months where everything seems to be changing in his life.
Jani has been a pro cyclist for years but at crucial stages of his career he would crash, get sick or simply not turn up on the day and he couldn’t figure out why. So he went on a journey to discover and in doing do looked into the behavior of his subconscious mind. Dug up events of his past that he is convinced shaped him and underwent perhaps one of the most transformative therapy series I have ever seen.
Be warned this show is heavy but teaches so much.
Thank you Jani.

Ben Smith is 27 years old, has represented Great Britain in triathlon and follows a number of endurance sports. What he also follows is meditation and a desire to help others.
In Ben’s words:
"My passion in life is personal growth and aiding others to progress in their own passions and endeavours. Im obsessed with it. Im a big believer in creating a bullet proof mind through shear hard work, getting uncomfortable and also Meditation. I want to get more people meditating, especially younger people. My goal is to remove the stigma behind it and get it out there. Its not just a small beneficial practice that might help some people - its a real life changing practice that effects endless areas of your life and with so many people suffering now mentally we need to do something and take action to prevent it getting worse. From my perspective it helped me as an athlete to progress way further than I initially thought id go and for other athletes out there - it would absolutely do the same for them too.
Meditation is a must. Many give up early with it because its ‘too hard’ or they ‘cant quieten their minds’. But this has to be overcome. A good teacher will help, which is where I come in.”
Ben talks us through his journey and shares some useful insights into meditation that we can all learn.

Who is Corey?
"I am Corey Phillpott, a 23 year old father and ultra extreme athlete.
In my teenage years I played a high level of rugby league representing NSW, Cronulla & Illawarra Steelers. 6 years ago in 2015 in quit footy and got caught up in taking drugs and partying every weekend, on the benders with the boys. pretty. much addicted to MDMA and cocaine. You know you're addicted when you're taking it mid week. I lost track of what was important in life and lost my way of life which to me was fitness. I gained around 39kg in a year from not training and just bendering to escape reality that my life was going nowhere or not where I thought it would be.”
Corey will be taking on this challenge to support ChildSafe Australia
