How you start your day may just be the deciding factor as to how that day, and in some cases week, pan out. But how much focus are we putting into the things we do to get us moving in the morning? What should we be doing? Does it really make a difference?
In this show I am going to fully “sell you” on having a solid morning ritual. I am going to give you examples of the things I have done or have had clients do and I am going to share the success and benefits with you guys.
Enjoy the show.

I got the opportunity to sit down and talk all things Coronavirus with Dr. Christopher and learn from him as to what we can do to prevent the spread of this disease, as well as protect ourselves in the best ways possible from a number of other diseases. Whilst I wasn’t immediately inspired to go out and buy a face mask, his stat on hand washing did stop and make me think.

Carey Kepler, a wife, mother, business owner, motivational speaker, top-ranked athlete and coach who resides in Austin, Texas. Carey is the co-founder of CrossFit Central, a business she started with her brother with the mission of building a fit community in their city. Since 2006, Carey has worked as a coach and inspirational speaker and played a dynamic role in seeing the lives of thousands of people change. Carey’s greatest passion is helping others find their purpose, set goals and live an intentional life. Carey, herself, is a world-class athlete who took the “3rd Fittest Woman in the World” title for her 3rd place overall at the 2009 International CrossFit Games – surpassing over 75 nationally ranked female athletes. She returned to the Games in 2010 & 2011 at an individual and in 2012, she qualified with Team CrossFit Central at the Games to compete alongside the top 50 other teams from around the world.
Carey was incredible to interview from start to finish. She has insane energy and passion for helping people, and at the same time it is obvious she has built a great business. One thing that kept coming to me over and over during the show is that she has remained genuine and authentic all through her journey as she was telling me how she still gets the greatest satisfaction out of working out with friends, family and members at her gym.
Just wait for her answer to my final question….talk about nailing it.
Enjoy the show.
I posted something a few weeks back about asking how people are and actually listening to the answer rather than moving on to our own agendas. That sparked a lot of feedback on my Instagram which I kick this show off with.
Asking for help seems so hard for so many of us. Some of you may remember show #588 where I talked about Mental Health with Dani and she explained how they had systems set up so people could easily ask for help. I have thought about this a lot since and had a personal encounter where 3 people in 1 day asked me for some quite serious help and although I know it was a big thing for them I thought nothing less of them and of course helped them as much as I could and am still doing so today.
The key take away from this show…….ask for help if you need it.
Alasdair Hall Jones is a globally experience marketeer and having spent a chunk of his career with the Marketing Society he has had exposure not only to some of the most influential brands in the world but also the leaders behind those brands and the CMO’s that are bringing ever new marketing ideas to life in attempt to snatch the attention and money of the consumer.
In this show Alasdair and I discuss how marketing has changed over the last decade with a focus on the health and fitness industry. We try and weigh up the pros and cons of what I of course love to call the “insta douche bags” and those that seem to be hoping on the fitness band wagon.
At the forefront of many organizations brand strategy these days is sustainability and my question to Alasdair was if companies actually care or if they just make it look like they care about the environment in the search of more sales.
These are topics that affect all of us and Alasdair has some really useful and interesting points which I am sure you will enjoy.
Thanks for listening, enjoy the show.
We often hear people saying that there particular “body type” does not really suit a sport or activity. Thats what I talk about in this show, what are the limiters? Are they for real or are they just an excuse.
The bottom line I think is simple in that our “body types” are what we mold and for the most part unless we are playing top level professional support there are many sports we can all enjoy with the bodies we have, it just depends how much you want to enjoy that sport.
So no, your body type is not the limiting factor, however your body shape that you have chosen to develop may be.

Dan Wagstaff has an incredible story and in this 45 minute show he shares some super power snippets of it with us. From a sporting background to drinking and smoking and very soon drugs, Dan talks openly about his life and the defining moments in it. He also shares with us what he is up to now and how he has built a super strong community and the great things he is doing there.
There are so many powerful points in this show. 2 that stuck with me were:
"Change the thinking, change the action and the outcome changes”
"Sitting in the car looking in the rear view mirror, Monday morning 4am. Your mum would be fu*king ashamed of you right now.”
There are so many others. I am sure you guys will love this chat with Dan.
Everyone is busy or at least that is what they say, but how busy are we and how can we free up time to do the things that make us the most happy.
In this weeks shorter show I talk about some examples of great leaders who you would think are just working all the time but seem to have a lot of time on their hands and then share some hacks with you about not being so busy.
Also please…stop telling everyone you are busy.
Enjoy the show.
I found John Lindsey through the good old trusted Instagram and was immediately intrigued as to the positions he was able to get his body into. Of course my immediate thoughts were that John was just “one of those guys” who was hyper mobile. Of course I stalked him a little bit and quickly found a piece on his site that said "In grad school my body was broken; I couldn’t touch my toes, squat past parallel, and I’d have back pain after most workouts." I knew I had to get John on the show!
In this show we talk about mobility but more than that we talk about John’s journey and things that you and I can learn from it. John isn’t asking everyone to be made from rubber but what he is advising people to do is just spend a little bit of time on their body each day as the title suggests.
Once you have listened please go and take action!
We get a lot of questions from people in classes and also to the show about how we put together our class program. The tag line of CrossFit as we know is “constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement” and for a long time in the early days gyms took the "constantly varied" to new heights without applying much science to their approach of programming, nothing against that as the objective for many was to get many moving and they did a great job of that.
In May 2019 Boz took over writing the class program here at InnerFight and we sat down to map out what we though based on both our experiences what would be the best “model” to follow….we then invented our own new one! In this show we talk all about how it works and of course where she gets a load of the mayhem workouts from, we also chat about our new gymnastics class.
Enjoy the show and if you want to check out the daily workout anyway head over to www.innerfight.com and you can see them all.
Thanks for listening.
