<== 6 OF THE VERY BEST TED TALKS ==>

https://youtu.be/b-iGZPtWXzE

<== DO YOU BELIEVE IN EDUCATION OR QUALIFICATIONS ==>

When you first in-list the services of a Doctor, Physio, Psychiatrist or even a Personal Trainer have you ever requested their resume? Or have you even politely hinted for a subtle glance at the killer Quals!

And upon confirmation of your first appointment do you scan the walls for the formed up line up of certificates, masters degrees and diplomas?

In some cases you may find these strewn across the jib board of their office in aged MDF timber frames, with the content on a slight tilt and  a school of cob webs to add to their legacy.

We naturally assume that those in the know are actually in the know, they have trudged through the required academic trenches to attain their required “Stuff”

But what if they haven’t, yet they still do an incredible job. Value is bought to your life, and what you sought assistance for was assisted!

Im so curious about this! This whole topic really makes me curious.

I regularly speak with a Mental Health Professional whom brings immense value and education to my life. Over the years i have NEVER once considered a request of transparency as it relates to academia.

Myself I have a mild academic/ tertiary background with lots of watery years under my industry  bridge.

But hold the fucken phone there is a relentless, non stop, never ending, unbroken and sustained HUNGER for further education, that does not get interrupted.

I listen to podcasts when i walk, Ted talks when i drive, i read 15 pages of a book every night before i sleep, The Tim Ferris Show when i train and i am a 100% self proclaimed self development slut!!!

Of which I would love to share with you  5 of my fav Ted Talks, so if you feel the unstoppable urge for free education, please view at your leisure.

Be confident that without even a teaspoon of doubt, those disinterested in Helath Fitness personal development you’ll love these for sure

<== THE WINNERS BIBLE==>“Don’t Let Distraction Fuck With Your Focus”

IM GOING TO THE O.C.R WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IN CANADA-

I firmly believe as i sit here slouched over my laptop typing with subtle Spotify cranking in the background riddled with adds  (Poor mans version). If it was not for my Winners Bible, without a shadow of doubt my  life would be very different now. And not for the better!

Permanently rewiring your brain and transforming your life using groundbreaking yet very simple tools, The Winners Bible is like a hybrid “Vision Board” on some pretty jacked up steroids.

WHAT IS A VISION BOARD?

A vision board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on a specific life goal. Literally, a vision board is any sort of board on which you display images that represent whatever you want to be, do or have in your life.

SO IM HERE TO TELL YOU A  BETTER LIFE IS ON THE HORIZON- JUST FOR YOU!

And you can be the captain of your ship! Just like Moana in the kids movie. (Great movie just watched it on the weekend)

Many years ago, about 10 I think,  I read a book by DR Kerry Spackman  called the Winners Bible http://www.winnersbible.com. Dr Kerry Spackman customized for elite athletes, Olympic champions and business people  tools, tactics and strategies on how to “Rewire your Brain for Permanent Change”.

Having read the book, implemented the tools,  and created the Winners Bible a decade ago, i realise now with the luxury of hindsight, I was too distracted by life to focus on my dreams.

I lacked maturity, vision, and self driven focus to bring the fruits of DR Kerry Spackmans labours into my little shopping basket.

Fast forward almost 3650 days, life in 3 different countries and now owning my own gym, in walks good friend and leading Strength and Conditioning professional John Templeton http://undergroundrx.com

JT Presented an undaunted and bigger then life sell out seminar. This seminars timing was on song as we had just come skidding out of the Christmas period 2016, and most of us were in need of some electric soup to kick start the 2017 line up.

And there I was, Caramel sponge ready to mop up puddles, splashes, and run off from that pot of banging bone broth.

One of the core principles of the seminar funnily enough “The Winners Bible”

What a surprise!

10 years ago i believed, just focus on what you want, every now and then, wait for the signs, and HEY!! Abs, motorbike, and unlimited travel. Truth of the matter is, I now know we see and do what we want to see and do when we are ready to see and do it.

JT’s SEMINAR I WAS FUCKEN FROTHING AND READY TO SEE AND DO IT ALL!

He challenged all attendees to establish our own Winners Bible, as I had done 10 years ago, and we were privileged to have insight into Johns own.

Listening to Johns seminar,  re-reading DR Kerry Spackmans book I was propelled to bring my Winners Bible to life again!

The enthusiasm and influence this has had on my life has been prompt.

Having my own mobile vision board basically,  with sayings, powerful pics, books to read and reference has worked me into a personal development lather.

Would i be so driven otherwise, possibly but more then likely not.

However thanks to DR Kerry Spackmans work 10 years ago, JT, and my own Winners Bible some of those fruits have been added to my 2017 shopping trolley.

1)- As per the pic I have qualified to represent Australia in the World O.C.R Championships in Canada this year.

2)- JMT has the perfect team providing  some of the best professional Strength and Conditioning services and quality service on the Coast ( I was creepy and took pics from their FB page and put them in my bible………and screen saver………….and bed side table…………..and ceiling………..(JOKING!)

3) Going to do a WIM HOFF workshop

4) And a few other things!

So I challenge you, if you’ve read this far purchase the book http://www.winnersbible.com/personal-winners-bible-template find out when Johns next seminar is, or just create your own Winners Bible from this template.

Go get the life you deserve! Are you ready to see, and do what you want?

Starve distraction! and feed your focus with this Winners Bible, stay hungry for the electric soup!

<== LOW TECH-HIGH EFFECT TRAINING==>

<==LOW TECH- HIGH EFFECT TRAINING ==>

Confucius was known to have said “Life is really simple, however we insist on making it complicated”
And such is training!
Once again on my ever evolving journey as a Strength and Conditioning Coach this was highlighted to me when good friend and N.Z Muay Thai Coach Ben Ahipene visited our humble training establishment recently.
http://fightacademy.ae/node/1815
http://www.nzherald.co.nz/hawkes-bay-today/news/article.cfm?c_id=1503462&objectid=11349441
http://www.nzherald.co.nz/hawkes-bay-today/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=1503460&objectid=10998063
Upon viewing a small part of our Saturday 0430 training session with the JMT Fighters Ben simply said “Awesome brother! Low Tech, High Effect Training Cuzzy, Love it”
It reiterates to me that you can train with little or nothing and achieve incredible results, have fun, and get the desired outcome.
What development of an individual often boils down to is
 Work ethic
 Basics
 Rapport + Trust
 Community
 Coach-ability
“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.” – Hans Hofmann
I have trained world class athletes, professional athletes, mums of 4, chippys, fighters, sports teams and all thats in between LITERALLY!
And I can assure without a shadow of doubt successful training does not require a fancy facility or equipment.
A large handful of our gyms elite were brutally crushed into the ground and humbled by the subtle 4 x 4 tyre, chain, and weight belt drag as seen in this video.
There were no big screen T.V’s, there was no flashing lights and the tyres were not endorsed by “………….” Or purchased online via 12 easy payments of “……………”
It is possible to succeed with almost anything, including nothing.
A generous portion of the beautiful Sunshine Coast community have had magnificent life long change within our JMT 4 walls. Their success was not based on equipment, cost, or the latest system of fad.
Their development was largely based on “Low Tech-High Effect Training”
And a good old sparkle of the following
 Work ethic
 Basics
 Rapport + Trust
 Community
 Coach-ability
It reaffirms to me we don’t need complex systems, over-priced equipment “endorsed” bullshit branded gear to produce results. 20kg weighs 20kg however you want to dress it up.
These variables will ALWAYS be effective in the long run, as long term results require long term focus.

 

 

<==CONSISTENCY==>

<==SOME OF THE MANY FACES OF CONSISTENCY==>

It is almost impossible to reap the full benefit of your hard labours/ training, and nutritional choices without consistency.

As John C. Maxwell quotes “Small disciplines repeated with consistency everyday lead to great achievements gained slowly over time”

In the photo above are just are some of the faces of consistency in our gym community.

These people are a part representation of what life looks like with constant progress, patient development and a honoured commitment to their consistent journey.

When a tree is bought to the earth, its done in a serious of intentional, subtle, yet precise small blows.

The arborists consistently and specifically chip away, they never take random shots, hoping for the slight possibility the giant redwood may fall.

As the builder lays his foundation deep in the ground,  for the showroom home he promised his wife.

He DIDNT start at the roof and try and lay blocks from the top down randomly.

I love the reference made by a professional fighter I knew “F%$K the works not done tonight bro, this shit was done 3 months ago, all I had to do tonight was fu$%ken turn up!”

Legitimate “for keeps” gains take time, its so fucken important that we remain both patient and constant in our pursuit for our dream result.

When I present seminars wither it be for Running, Kids, or Goal Setting I often share the purpose of the 3 P”s

  1. Patience
  2. Positivity
  3. Perseverance

These 3 little golden nuggets are the greatest measure of being consistent with your consistency.

Cant stay the course as they say in the Military, then bottle up the 3 P’s and sprinkle that around generously on your own self!

Consistency can co-exist in your life, it can be part of your training and lifestyle decisions. Subtle variables in training, food, workout environment can help you “Stay the Course”

Be consistent this year!

2017 Will be the year of progress not perfection.

Be consistent with your consistency!

<== STAY IN YOUR LANE, THERE'S NO TRAFFIC THERE==>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SX1gzFL6IMY

Can I ask you a couple of questions? Won’t take long.

Have you started 2017 with the intention of putting your health as a priority? Resolutions set? Has the exercise wheel started to turn? Or is the mountain peak of  weightloss, shredded muscles and nutritional mastery to high to climb?

Or are you currently an absolute weapon? Fit as f$%, hungry, driven, focussed, and a deadlifting muscle Mary with lifestyle choices dialled in?
BUT! You find yourself looking for an edge, a secret, your always pushing the envelope, crushing your boundaries, but your chasing more.

If you answered yes to the above, I may have an answer for you…

However could I tell you a quick story first?

Well this month is the second anniversary of when myself and two friends broke a world record, January 2015 in Cairns Far North QLD.
Breaking a world record generally requires some boots and some grit, no matter what it is. The difficulty lies purely in the fact that its a World Record, its never going to be easy.
We performed 4267 Burpee broad jumps each, across a distance of 8.5km and over 22.5 hours. In Cairns. In January. On the Esplanade. To say it was HOT! would be the most magnificent understatement of 2015.
Checkout the FB page “The Burpee Ten Thousand” for credibility. https://www.facebook.com/burpeetenthousand/
If your reading this, and you can sympathise with the movement pattern of a burpee, you could more then likely also relate to the dreaded Burpee broad jump, which is like a conventional burpee but on steroids.
I would go as far to say if you have had a crack at few burpee broad jumps, even 100m of them, 400m of them or dabbled in the odd burpee mile, contemplating doing 4267 reps would be about as fun as sticking pins in your eyes, smearing them with lemon juice, and snorting salt. This is actually how the Burpee Ten thousand felt at times.
Now if you asked me would I do this again? The answer would be simple.
You would have more chance of getting me to fly in the air.

So why was January 2015 different to now?
Back then was a period in my life where I was hungry, driven, time rich, and willing to hurt.
Intensity was my friend and spending time in physical pain caves was mercilious yet righteous, and I also had friends who were on the same journey.
Fast forward 2 years.
Its January 2017. Sunshine Coast. 2nd anniversary of “The Burpee Ten Thousand, and I’m a Gym Owner, trainer to over 100 members at JMT, loving life, living my passion purpose and wondering how do the “FIT” stay hungry, driven, and focussed, and how do the “UNFIT” do the same.
I have found myself reflecting on the different lanes we are all in, how do we stay there, how do we change lanes? And what are some processes and strategies?
Below is some suggestions, tools, and recommendations for those in their current lanes.
We have the new to fitness, the novice, the scared, self aware, timid, and uncommitted. Trust me even the fittest, fastest, strongest person you think you know was here, they just eventually changed lanes.
And of course the veteran, the weapon, the fit, devoted, confident and well muscled human, roaring down their side of the road in search of the open speed limit. How do I get faster, stronger and leaner.

NEW TO FITNESS?

1. Embody your journey. Be all about it. If you’re ready for change and you’ve flicked the switch, then do it! Make your reason for chasing health and fitness so so strong that when all the FB and Instagram MEMES lose their shine, your reason sprinkles a timely reminder to push on.

2. Your vibe attracts your tribe. Surround yourself with those on the same or similar journey to you. If your circle of friends and family aren’t going in the same direction, make them!
Burden shared is a burden halved. Be their inspiration, share some perspiration, and oooooooze motivation.

3. Know that this new lane is like that of a roller coast track, it will go up down, sideways and invert. This new lane, roller coaster ride is life. It changes direction temporarily.
Truth is that is part of the fun, the journey, the intrigue.
If your roller coaster just went in a nice straight path, no ups downs, dips and twists. it would be pretty damn boring. And you would most likely want a refund, or never ride again.
In simple terms, a slip up an ice cream, a greasy burger is not the end. Start again tomorrow and don’t give up.

YOU ARE FITNESS, AND YOU WANT AN EDGE

1. Ask yourself before a workout “Today how much am I willing to hurt?” Commit to your commitment to train, honour it and get to work! If your feeling good, your on, you are in your ZONE! Pour the petrol on, rip your environment apart.
Because it won’t be pretty, it won’t be a spectator event, but man you will be EMPOWERED and unbreakable!

2. Simple tactics. At the point of exhaustion, for example when your at your 21st rep of a very crushing and demoralising deadlift, place the bar down, take 1-2 steps back re address the bar, and get back to work.
The amount of time I personally have taken with unneeded rest, popped the bar down, checked my phone, had a drink, re chalked my hands, hopped back on the bar, 45-60 sec would have passed. The moment for more intensity, more fitness had passed.
STAY IN YOUR LANE!!! Stay on the task at hand, and give your training session, your time, and the focus it deserves.
Watch your fitness soar!!!

3. Like the Burpee Ten Thousand. This was a saving grace.
At the point of absolute despair, exhaustion, and at the edge of your red line, you do 3 more reps NO MATTER WHAT.
Like your life literally depended on it. 3 More reps! Give it 3 more reps, into the acidic pits of your deepest sinew and lactic acid filled meat, 3 more glorious reps.

DEPRESSED, PATHETIC, FAT YET FIT!

21 days

JOURNEY RUNNING! 21 DAYS till MMFM 2016 and I’m  (DEPRESSED, INFLATED AND INFLATING) 

 
3 weeks and 4.5kg to gain!!!!!
 
Many run­ners have heard some­one say, “If you can do a half marathon, you can do a whole.” The thought process is that the ded­i­ca­tion level is the same the training is just a little different.. So…does this same logic apply to ultra marathons? If you can run 42.195km does that mean you can run an Ultra? I think it does.
 
But what about “Journey Running” my definition of multiple Ultras i.e 2080km in 18 days#80kadayman whats the difference here? 
 
Answer….. Getting fat, storing fuel, and preparing for the winter so to speak. 
10kg extra to be exact 75kg to 85kg. A very gruelling and unpleasant task. Leaving me feeling more body conscious, depressed, bloated, and a former version of my self, waking old demons and subconsciously leaving me feeling like a fat fraud………..jesus thats brutal. Would you fucken do it?
 
I understand these are first world problems, self inflicted for a cause, and some what self indulgent. I just felt an unrelenting urge to let people into the world of “Journey Running” and that the often considered difficulty of the training, is actually the easy part.
The fattening of the lamb is the real hard work, it is for my safety, health, and longevity, because its required for 2 marathons a day for 18 days. 
 
Mentally I need a warm bath and a brown paper bag to breath into because fuelling on all the things we preach avoidance to is FUCKEN savage!
 

For most of my life, I have participated in sports  (boxing) that required me to compete at specific weight classes. Gaining weight was never an option. On the contrary, I’ve spent a good part of my life trying to cut weight for competitions. Aside from heavyweight fighters, all combat athletes, jockeys, gymnasts etc can relate to the difficult and unpleasant task of losing weight for a weigh-in.

As I transitioned from athlete to trainer, I still found myself subconsciously trying to maintain my fighting weight. I didn’t want to creep too high, as I felt the need to stay in fighting shape. My philosophy as a trainer is that one must walk the walk. I always test the routines that I create.

For example you will never see a world-class marathon runner with a huge, muscular physique. The human body is an intelligent system. If you train conventionally for ultra-endurance, your body will do everything in its power to shed excess weight. Remember, the body will specifically adapt to the demands imposed upon it. From the 17th of September till the 3rd of October I will burn roughly 232 thousand calories just from running alone.

With three weeks remaining I am challenging the status quo, its harsh, remorseless and inhuman…….With 21 days to go I am another cheesy croissant away from the MMFM Graceland and the journey of 2080km.

This is just a very small glimpse into the world of “Journey running” and the long relentless road to Many Miles for Mary.

WANT TO TURN YOURSELF INTO A PRETZEL?

==> COME AND TRY US FREE FOR A WEEK <==

===> COME AND PROVE ME WRONG <===

====> CLASS TIMES 0500, 0600, 1600, 1700 <====

At the time of writing this blog I’ve returned from a 2 week break, and a 2 month absence from working out in our group training environment at J.M.T. and the gym in general, not easy as a co-owner.

However during this time away I have maintained my own degree of athleticism, reserved and catered towards my yearly Ultra Endurance charity event called Many Miles for Mary.

Basically the training I have undergone involves a bucket load of running and a few sneaky conditioning workouts, about 3-4 per week alone.

Now Ive been physically driven all my life bar a 9 month break many years ago, 12 years as a fitness professional and a competitor in a number of demanding sports at a reasonably high level HOWEVER!

 In the words of Dr. Howard Thurman,

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

Today I was turned into a little savoury salted encrusted human pretzel.

Today I took part in one of our innovative and new Strength and Conditioning programs, designed by extremely experienced Coaches and implemented by one of the best on the Sunshine Coast Ants.

THIS IS NOT A BLATANT PLUG it is a fact!

The training I experienced this morning I use to love, the training i experienced this morning lit an old fire I had completely forgot about, an old friend and a workout of passion!

Passion in a fitness driven individual is a fucken driving force. It is the spark that ignites the flame. It illuminates a path on your road to success, and the body and feeling you REALLY want. Without passion, the road will eventually darken. You’ll lack direction, focus, and desire, just like I did.

Im putting it out there, FUCK IT! Our team are really doing great things!

Our classes are varied and periodised, some have a gently gently approach, technique heavy, coached and catered for. And then there are the ones that are reserved for those willing to go very hard and then go home. the FIRE BREATHERS, THE H.I.I.T ANIMALS and those that find sweat soaked sessions in the gym, sanctuary and passion fuelled with purpose.

Heres the challenge, for those that want to go hard! And to our current community who we love, hit one of the Strength and Conditioning classes, join me most mornings at 0600 and see for yourself

WEAR YOUR UNDIES ON THE OUTSIDE FOR SUCCESS

Undies on the outside

WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU WEAR YOUR UNDIES ON THE OUTSIDE?

Because “When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping” thats what my old boxing Coach Gavan James from Cairns use to say.

In the Sports Psc world scholars would define adverse conditions and mental toughness as “An ability to consistently perform toward the upper range of your talent and skill regardless of competitive circumstances, conditions, and time

Me, personally, what do i think about tough conditions? mentally challenging situations? the competitive hard times. Well just like the girls that are featured in the pic above at todays 6 Hour Ultra Endurance event “The Buck 3” I would wear my fucken undies on the outside. WHY?

It makes you happy!

And because I’ve  been a massive believer in remaining positive through adversity, through challenges, through long gruelling workouts, events, and sub standard conditions.  Faking it till you make it.

Now i find this to be powerfully true, resonating with me to this very day after reading the book by Chris McDougall,  years ago called Born To Run http://www.chrismcdougall.com/born-to-run/ If you haven’t scrolled through these pages yet, runner or not, do yourself a favour and indulge.

The book is about almost semi-mystical people known as the Tarahumara tribe. These dudes are Native American people who live in the sheltered depths of Northwestern Mexico. They drink pinole, which is like water and toasted corn. They’ve developed a culture around ultrarunning, sometimes running more than 200 miles in one session. That is 8 back to back marathons. Wearing nothing other then thongs, drinking corn beer, and strapping on a loin cloth.

How do you think it made them feel? ………..You guessed it, just like the girls with the undies on the outside,  POSITIVE. Positive  in the face of adversity, toughness, forcing uncanny health and inner serenity. Great game plan and strategy for when the shit gets real. Force a smile, change your state, if you have to put your bloomers over the top and thats what it takes, then thats what it takes!

Remaining positive when the happy well is bone fucken dry,  means that no matter how brutal the circumstances—whether it’s your 10th hour running through a Ultra Marathon, or you’re halfway through a 3000 rep workout that includes pull-ups and lifting heavy shit—you’re able to withstand the pain and suffering and perform to the best of your skills and talents, with a good time, high place, or even a win.

Rolling with your version of the “Undies on the outside”  may be the defining factor between finishing at the front of the pack and not finishing at all.
