You really want to read about me?
Well the short version is I am an ambitious but fairly normal guy, and been coaching fitness for over a decade and run two business – but ended up burnt out, fat, hating life and genuinely at 31 (when I decided to do something about it) – I thought that was it for me.
That I would never fulfill my potential... after all I knew exactly what to do but for some reason wasn't doing it! I felt tired all the time, life was boring and it seemed like a cloud was constantly following me. Maybe you can relate?
My waist steadily expanded and I was constantly fighting feeling tired and lethargic all the time.
In fact, I was "tired of being tired"
I kept wearing the same old clothes to work, battling with long commutes and spending hours at the desk...
I was stressed, overweight, not sleeping and low on energy.
I reached a breaking point – I thought ‘fuck that’ and decided to do something about it.
I decided to focus on all areas of 'me' not just my career.
the irony here... after all I'd been in fitness all my life, I knew exactly what I needed to, but wasn't! I think that goes for all of us right?
I'd tried previously to change, I hit the gym, played around with my diet but my commitment was low.
This time was different though... I knew I was on a slippery downhill slope and had to do something about it!
So, I sought help! Investing in coaches... I knew that I just needed to be held accountable... in essence, not just focusing on my business but restoring life’s balance.
Now I live a rather awesome life, generally doing everyday 'normal stuff' that serves all areas of me << cheesy ah!
I have radically less stress than a few years back [I think we're always going to have a little stress, some stress is good, it makes us move forwards]
I don't experience HUGE pitfalls in burn out.
No more struggles with my weight... in fact as I write this, my weight has come down from 95kg to 81kg - that's a crazy 13kg, just over 2 stones and 4 inches from my belly.
What's more, now I can focus more on all parts of life than ever before, only because I have focused on me first... looking better, feeling better and performing better!
But the work didn't stop there, I still do the work every day! And the results show up!
It’s that simple.
