How to get disciplined.

MASSIVE topic today!!!


F-it up and you have ZERO chance of changing your body


Yet despite the mystical, ‘life-coach’ vibe that discipline has, it’s actually really simple to do.




Decide upon your PURPOSE




Write down a GOAL aligned with your PURPOSE




Come up with some WEEKLY or DAILY actions to help you achieve your GOAL




Make a SCHEDULE and stick to it!




Create some DAILY RITUALS that help you stick to the damn schedule.


Here’s a quick example:


A few years ago I had a client who lacked the self-confidence to take his shirt off at the swimming pool.


This was a problem because he couldn’t take his son to swimming lessons, meaning they were missing out on some valuable father/son time.


He came to me and we spoke about why he wanted to get in shape, what’s his purpose?


His purpose was to take control of his life, get confident, so things didn’t hold him or his family back anymore. 


Then we link it to a goal, say, lose a stone of body fat.


He now knows WHY he is doing so.


As you can see this is some powerful shit.


Then the weekly actions to support this goal were: to attend 3 sessions a week, to eat clean, non-processed foods 6 out of 7 days.


The daily goals were: sleep 7 hours minimum, drink 2L water minimum and have at least 4 small meals per day to control hunger/cravings.


The schedule is simply a way to put the weekly/daily actions on paper and tick them off, like a to-do list, but with specific times.




Monday: train at 6am, eat meal one at 7am, eat meal at 11am etc.


The daily rituals, the final piece of the puzzle, is a way to keep energy & focus up. 


It’s basically like managing morale.


Rituals are ways to put your brain on auto-pilot and stop you wasting decision making power on trivial stuff like ‘what should I have for breakfast?’


An example of a ritual is:


Wake-up 5.15am

Have a shower

Put gym clothes on

Make a coffee

Prepare 3 simple meals for the day

Drive to the gym and train


^^^ you do that every day you’ll be in shape


The daily ritual is the nitty-gritty, dirt-under-the-fingernails stuff that actually leads to your goals being achieved, and your purpose fulfilled.




Think about your purpose, think deep, this one is the hardest part.


Now write down a goal that will help you live your purpose


Then make daily/weekly actions, stick those in your schedule, and create daily rituals to make sure the essential stuff gets done with minimal fuss.


Nuff said


Do that and you’ll achieve everything you want in life


Also, this process works for ANY goal.


Personally I have struggled to achieve many goals in the past, and I watched successful people, read the books, watched the youtube vids.


I was always looking for the next secret to helping me achieve my goals


And this is what I have found works, more DO-ing, less sitting on your arse and moaning


If you’d like a BIG PUSH to achieve your goals, and have the support of myself, my coaching team and all the members at Raw Strength Gym


Then what’s coming up below may be of interest. Jump on it


We are running a 6 week transformation challenge. Complete a few easy steps and it’s FREE. 




Waaaay too many people are ending each day hunched up on the sofa watching netflix. Pizza-and-wining their health away.


Result? You wake up feeling (and looking) like…well…let’s just say, less than your best.


Time to change guys.


I’ll be taking 12 lucky people through our brand new body transformation system for FREE


For 6 weeks here’s what you get:




Start a nutrition plan that works, backed up by science (oh and 8 years and hundreds of successful body transformations too).


You’ll start with simple habit tracking, move into creating a meal plan, then learn how to easily eat to a calorie target.


This way you get a radical body transformation AND avoid everyone’s biggest fear - getting fat again.




Learn how to lift weights safely, with no meatheads or egos, and with a coach demonstrating and helping you in each and every session.


We have a world class, well equipped facility that is closed to the public. 


It’s only you, your coach and your training partners in every session. I designed the gym this way and that’s how I like it. Focused yet relaxed.


You’ll set some PBs, and it doesn’t matter how weak or strong you are, these are YOUR personal bests, nobody else.


Our goal is to then work together to increase your PBs in the gym (we do lots of fun variations of free weight movements, plus some bodyweight exercises to build you up to doing things like press-ups and even pull-ups)


We also look at aerobic training, give you work to do outside of the gym (if you really want to go all in) and you are free to come to up to FIVE sessions a week.


5 sessions a week - for FREE - for 6 weeks. Insanely valuable for those who step up and actually sign-up.




You will get our full support, learn how to harness your emotions and work on the better side of your nature whilst crushing the dark side.


Basically this means less binge eating and feeling negative, more positive-focus, high energy and nice healthy meals.


You’ll train in our AMAZINGLY MOTIVATING group atmosphere - max of 12 people to a coach.


Many of our members have been with us for 3 years+ and have great friendships with their training partners.


The modern fitness approach does not work, commercial gyms are shallow and scary and do not care if you show up or not.


That ain’t us.


We’re a team, we’re behind you every step of the way.


But this first step, this step of taking responsibility for your health and clicking ‘BOOK APPOINTMENT’


Well, that’s on you.


But I know you can do it.


Just, for your own sake, do it NOW.


I only have 12 places available on this free deal to celebrate our 8th year of strength and health.
