The Bevan James Eyles Show - The Fitness Behaviour Podcast

The other day, someone posed this question to me:

"How can I initiate a conversation with a friend who has recently gained a significant amount of weight?”

This individual wants to support their friend but is grappling with how to broach the subject because they don’t want to hurt their feelings.

I've encountered this delicate issue many times throughout my career, and through my experiences, I've identified five effective steps.

In this week's video, I'll be sharing my five-step approach to facilitate an important conversation in a caring and supportive way.

A lot of people say they need accountability to exercise.

But then when they look for an accountability partner they make one mistake…

They choose a partner who is unmotivated which often leads to both of them giving up quickly. 

If you want to be successful with accountability, there 4 things to look for… 

  1. If you are totally new to an exercise or movement – pay for a skilled professional who has helped people like you to be accountable to.
  2. Find a partner who has good fitness character traits and ‘soft skills’ (like knowing how to turn up to do a session every time).
  3. Work together to create the rules and standards that your relationship will have.
  4. Be a legend at keeping your partner to the standards you both set. This is important because if you do this for them, they will do it for you.

If you want to go deeper into this subject make sure you watch this video, where I teach you how you set these accountability steps up successfully.

Do you ever wonder why some people struggle to stick to their fitness goals?

It's often because they skip a crucial step...

They forget to set up their own personal motivation toolbox right from the beginning.

When obstacles pop up along the way in their fitness journey, they're left empty-handed, unsure of how to handle them which sadly leads to throwing in the towel.

Result? They mistakenly label themselves as "lazy."

Let's change that!

In this week’s video I share the 5 motivational tools you can put in place when you are on your fitness journey.

These tools include:

  1. The "No More Comparison" Tool

  2. The "Bad Day Resilience" Tool

  3. The "Consistency Booster" Tool

  4. The "Conquer Tough Conditions" Tool

  5. The "Success Momentum" Tool

Watch the video to learn about these tools and how you can use them to stay more motivated…in all areas of your life.

There are a lot of people who quit exercise within 13 days of starting. 

There are many reasons why this happens, but one of the main reasons is…

They do everything wrong around their planning.


·       Plan to do their exercise when they are tired

·       Don’t consider the extra support they will need 

·       Schedule their exercise at times when they know they struggle, for example someone who hates mornings tries to exercise in the morning 

·       Don’t do any practical or mental planning at all! 

There are many steps you need to do (and get right) if you want to introduce a long term exercise routine into your life and becoming a legendary planner is one of the most important. 

In this week’s video I’m going to teach you the 4 key planning tools you must put in place if you want to develop a long term love of regular exercise.  

            These tools will set you up for exercise success
