MMFM 2016 Journey has begun (16 Week program)




Seek a journey that will open your heart, open your mind and achieve something very special for somebody else.

Many Miles for Mary 2016.

Fast forward to September 17th 2016 Jamie and Leigh will take on a run through 3 Australian States, 2080km over an 18 day time frame.

Starting from the Odin Performance Centre in Melbourne’s Albert Park all the way to the J.M.T Facility in Warana on the Sunshine Coast.

The lads give their service, bodies, and time to a very worthy and very real cause. Alzheimer’s Australia.

It is very powerful to think that the MMFM campaign started EIGHT years ago with the wheels continuing to turn in memory of Jamie’s Nanny, Mary who passed away in the late 90’s to the soul destroying and memory thief “Alzheimers”.

In an attempt to capture your attention, your focus, support and generosity Leigh and Jamie invite you to please come along for the 16 week journey.

 The preparation of “LIFE” for these two guys just got a whole lot more demanding.

The event itself is a mere 18 days, however the forecasting, commitment, and time demands are 5-6 months.

Share this with us.

Both business owners of JMT Strength and Conditioning on the Sunshine Coast have agreed to allow a very intimate and transparent look at the “How” and the “why” of MMFM 2016.

  • QUESTION– Exercise, what does it actually take physically to do this? How does a grown man not lose his “Beach pump” biceps whilst training for such a massive event.
  • ANSWER– 5 Days a week we run, squat, and perform lots of push ups and pull ups
  • QUESTION– How do you run a business, juggle family, have life whilst training for this, and recover?
  • ANSWER – We eat clean, supplement well, and try and sleep more, stress less.

This seems great, achievable, and a very balanced approach, reality is life is one hell of a  roller coaster.

Ups, downs, troughs, massive highs and a few spew type moments.

Get a ticket, chuck that solid rubber seatbelt on and join us.

Finally thank you! It is with immense grace, and gratitude that we embark and saddle up to go do our thing. Grateful for the opportunity to actually physically attempt to do this. That our two hearts beat, our muscles churn and burn and that our lungs scream and fill, so we can have a crack.

Arohanui to family and friends who with their own selfless selves get in behind the campaign, and back the boys.

Stash Hounds Story (Guest Blog by JMT Intern Josh Milne

Stash story


“ Always do more of which you’re paid for “.

I look at this as something I wish to accept as part of my lifestyle, to help build a community for doing more then the average. One of the biggest reasons for myself in the WHY I want to become one of the greatest strength and conditioning coaches.

It all comes down to making a positive difference in peoples lives, yet what i’m learning so far in my 2 year journey is that fitness is just a small part of becoming healthier and happier. As a coach I feel we play a small part in building someones lifestyle and are lucky enough to have that chance to share there journey through the goals they wish to achieve.

It took me awhile to understand how a personal trainer can make such a positive difference in someones life, without the fact of just having fitness or to just give a rep scheme for someone to work out to. Being a young Stash that’s all I ever knew for such along time and all I ever understood. As thus far I am slowly learning that there is so much more then just being an athlete.

For me the amount of people I have gotten to know at JMT, and the experiences some go through each and every day. It has become a privilege to work there knowing the amount of inspirational people there are around us, with there own story to tell; in regards to there battles to just be happy- that’s what it comes down to in my mind, in its simple form.

As a personal trainer I feel it is not just to help for fitness or nutrition but in a great way happiness… i feel is the key. Finding someone to motivate you and push you, is one of the greatest things. Helping you look for improvement, understanding there is no over night success but a matter of dedication, commitment, progress and proceeding through failure.

What we do has to be a product of our own conclusion, having someone there to guide us is just the start. There’s a lot of things that we fight through or work on, Of all honesty there is many things I find challenging and working on to better myself as a coach; with the knowledge to help others. Not just in the sense of just being physically active but also mentally.

So I leave this with you, it is something I look at as much as possible. It was given to me just the other day and now becomes something I say to myself on a regular basis. “ Forget past mistakes, forget failures, forget everything except what your going to do and do it”

How Many Reps Of Txting Have You Done?



Texting while you drive is obviously dangerous to yourself and those on the road with you, well known fact.

Texting while training hurts not only your  momentum, your  focus, and your overall pineapple pump!

But the gains train results are minimized and the value you give YOUR time and your training time is discredited also.

Checkout this local Coolum Cafe culling all use of phones during dining and social times. If you dine here and hand your phone over to the staff they secure your prized smartphone and celebrate your disconnection to make some re-connection by giving free drinks and some food!!!!!

Being on your phone whilst you enjoy a meal with quality people, during a meeting, with family is not social! Cannot being to applaud the change in mindset from The Coolum Cafe featured above. Being guilty of being  a phone abuser myself  I love the fact that someone is putting themselves out there as a catalyst for change!!!

Moral of today’s blog is. YOUR time is valuable, we are all busy, we all work hard, and majority of us have very little time to spend enjoying some of lifes pleasures……………….like training.

So attempt to bin the texting, checking Facey, Insta in the squat rack or between sets, because everyday is not train your THUMB day.

Stop hitting your phone and start hitting your workout, youll be far more focussed driven and motivated.

The gains train always has a seat for you!!! But its a phone free ride.

The JMT Difference

We believe that how people train, lose weight, or establish health is not dependant on method.
The method they use is somewhat unimportant.
There are so many various pathways to all of the above, quite simply the method you choose generally just needs to suit you, you gotta click!
The important thing is your mind set, state, and DESIRE.
JMT Provides the quality training needed, reinforced with a network that nutures you whilst liberating your goals dreams, THATS why we are different.

Love Yourself

Love yourself enough to make health a priority. Don’t drop out of your training journey because your not seeing results fast enough.

Physiological changes occur incrementally. You most likely won’t see much—if any—improvement from one week to the next, but over time magic happens.
Stay the course!!! No matter what! Don’t compare or judge yourself against others. It’s Your life, your journey, your glory!

Don’t be a hater in yourself be an appreciator!
