Believe or not being at some sort of altitude somehow brings some great clarity to thinking, not all the time but when you are not totally oxygen deprived and you sit and take a minute to look around.I was recently in Chamonix on a training weekend and spent a lot of time thinking as you generally do when you are out running for 6 hours at a time. I then got back to Dubai and as my “coach the coach” delivered these 17 points that I had scribbled down on the plane on the way back. The team liked what I had to say so I thought why not turn it into a podcast so you guys can maybe understand a bit of my temporary madness.
Mark Whittle is the host of the Take Flight podcast and as the name suggests he is all about taking action and taking flight. A super positive guy with some real knowledge to share. However Mark did not always have this outlook on life, in fact he has been through some quite challenging times which makes what he is doing now even more impressive.
In this show we talk about what drove Mark to start a podcast, managed to capture a number of his views on life generally as well as a great chat about a number of guests he has had on his show, what has made them special and how it’s amazing how we can learn from everybody!
In this show we talk about:
-Doing the hard work
-Know it may take time
-Appreciate small gains
This show is full of energy from Abeer, she is a great person and we are super excited for what the future holds for her and the females she motivates. Some call outs from the show:

The first step of figuring it out is so important as it lays the foundation of motivation for the journey you are about to embark on and this is why it deserves your time and effort to go about it in the right way.Here are some of the highlight points from this show:

-We are all different
-You first need to "figure it out"

Today we’re throwing it back to Podcast #382 when Andrew “Monty” Montgomery joined us on the show nearly 2 years ago. You may have known Monty as the bike guy but there’s so much more to the Scot who managed Oasis’ Liam Gallagher’s clothing store. Monty talks about the importance of being honest, not pretending to be someone you’re not and the book that changed his life. Hope you enjoy the show as we discuss:
-Just being a good dude
In this show she takes us step by step up the mountain and it literally is gripping the way that she delivers her story. We also ask her about how this seasons events on Everest were covered in the media with regards to the increased numbers of deaths and the number of people causing human traffic jams in vital places as well as:
-If you want something it will happen
-Deaths on Everest
We could not round out this series without talking to you about food and drink now could we? So here we go as we chat:
-Freezing water and gels
-Post workout nutrition
InnerFight was founded in 2008 on the back of my passion to help people “get better at life”. In this show pretty much for the first time I talk about how it all started and then get out my crystal ball and try and predict what will happen in the future. It’s been a great ride. Hope you enjoy the show as I talk:
-The early days
-Having a plan
-If it makes sense we will do it
