I was teaching an extremely hard cycle class the other night.
The conditions were:
With around 10-15mins to go, when the hardest part of the workout was still in front of us, I could see that people were:
In fairness to the class, it was easy to justify pulling back in effort because the hot conditions were making it so tough...
But it’s my job to help people get to a higher level within themselves.
A motivational thought popped into my mind, and I shared it with my class.
It must have hit a note because for the last part of the workout everyone absolutely destroyed themselves. It was amazing to see.

Sadly, so many people struggle with exercise.
Here’s the thing, most of these people have tried to exercise but have ended up quitting. This obviously has a massive impact on their health, fitness and wellbeing.
When they have that moment where they are motivated to try to bring exercise into their lives, unfortunately, they make some key mistakes, which ultimately leads to them quitting and often, never wanting to try again.

For these people, there are some questions which might be useful to explore:

Every day of my life I spend time motivating people.
It can be with:
Over the years, because I spend so much time in this space, I’ve learnt a lot about motivation.
When I first started teaching fitness a wise soul in the fitness game taught me one of the most important lessons about motivation.
This lesson increased my ability to motivate others massively.
So much so it’s still one of my foundation thoughts around motivation.
In this week’s podcast I’m going to share this lesson with you and teach you how you can apply it to your life, so you’ll be able to motivate yourself to your next level.

Every year I’m very lucky because I get to be the MC at the iconic event, the Kathmandu Coast to Coast.
This is one of the most special endurance events in the world.
While there are many benefits to training and racing the Coast to Coast, there is one benefit that I feel may be the biggest of all.
‘What you said meant so much to me, I’ll take that with me forever’.

One day when I was training with him, he shared a way of thinking and mindset that motivated me to be a higher-level athlete myself.
This mindset has:

Do you have something that you are trying to improve on?
What are your answers to these questions:
If we want to improve, it’s important that we spend time on the approach and strategy we use so that…
For me, a massive shift happened with my piano playing when I changed my approach to my practice time.
It was like I had put my progress into overdrive.
And I have been able to apply this to all areas of my life.
In this week’s podcast, I share an important way to look at how to use your practice time, so you can develop yourself faster and more effectively.

I have this fitness challenge that I do each week that is designed to:
This challenge brings fear to my day from the moment I wake up, but even though this is the case…
“Have you challenged how you do this challenge? Is there a higher level you can aim for?”
Up until this point I would have told you I gave everything in this workout…
But by asking myself this question, I’ve been able to go to another level.
In this week’s podcast I break down how my ‘challenge my challenge’ thinking has taken me to the next level and how you can apply this principle to your life.
