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.
Annika Naidoo is back on the show for the second time as we talk ebooks, compartmentalizing life, having a monthly board meeting with your partner and all the positives that have come from COVID!
Some of you may remember Annika from show 612 almost a year ago now where we spoke a lot about "Yoga for the athlete." Today we continue that conversation and it was great to learn that Annika has in fact written 4 ebooks since we last chatted 3 of them focussed on her yoga practice. She also shares with us what she has been up to in the last 12 months and proves that COVID has brought a number of silver linings!
Enjoy the show.
At the end of 2020 there was a resounding message on many platforms that the bad that was of 2020 was just going to disappear as the click struck midnight on 31/12. Well I would also love to buy into that fantasy but I think a bit of reality needs to come to the party here.
Yes 2021 can be better and we certainly hope that it will be better but please folks stay cool and watch out for those false summits. In this weeks show we talk about how to manage false summits and stay motivated although the peaks and the troughs of what is certainly already promising to be a great year!
Cultural norms and traditions shape us to a large extent but are they holding us back? Are they stopping us from being the real us? Are they forcing us to live a way that perhaps we do not like? This week I sit down with Moutani Goswami who shares a mind blowing first hand experience. This show is quite moving in places and incredibly powerful, enjoy it.

@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.
