Stressed & Sleeping Poorly? You’re not alone

Stressed & Sleeping Poorly? You’re not alone

I believe there's an epidemic sneaking up on us...



I see hundreds of people each year walk into my gym (not bullshit marketing hype here, I actually do as a head coach of a decent sized gym)...



....and it's time to talk straight.



YOU are struggling.



Stop hiding it.



Stop ignoring it.



You have no identity or life of your own.

Why we eat crap on the go

Why we eat crap on the go

Our body responds to modern stress just like it responded to the old sabre-toothed tiger: fight or flight. 

In preparation for a fight, or a flight, our body releases cortisol and adrenaline

This stimulates a variety of physical symptoms like faster heart rate, slowed digestion, shaking, flushed face etc. 

The problem is, we are not in great danger in modern life!

You can't change when you think your problems are unique

Let me explain this in 30 secs…

Imagine any film or TV scene where someone goes to an AA meeting (alcoholics anonymous) for the FIRST time.

Everyone’s sat in a circle, and they introduce themselves by saying:

“Hi, my name is Ricardo and I’m an Alcoholic”

And everyone else says…

your health is fine until it isn’t

your health is fine until it isn’t

One of my favourite books is The Tartar Steppe.


A young army officer goes to a remote fort to start his career.


He has loads of hopes and dreams.


Every day the soldiers gaze out across a mysterious desert, waiting for the enemy to appear.


They’ve been waiting for decades, but every now and then a glimpse of something on the horizon gets their hopes up.


Is it a distant sandstorm? 


Or is it the enemy approaching?

Guess what I’ve just realised?! 


I read a lot but just realised that I never talk about what I read! So today I’d like to share a book I truly love, because I think it could help you. 

2 must haves for health, strength and clarity...

2 must haves for health, strength and clarity...

Today I'm aiming to describe what I believe are the TWO ‘must-haves’ when it comes to a fitness program. Meaning that without these bases covered, you’ll find it easy to quit. Self-deception will be rife each day. You’ll go weeks without training then suddenly feel guilty. 


Sound familiar?
