The Bevan James Eyles Show - The Fitness Behaviour Podcast (general)

Do you have something that you are trying to improve on?

What are your answers to these questions:

  • What’s your approach to improvement?
  • When you spend time on this, how do you spend your time?
  • Do you make the progress you hope for?

If we want to improve, it’s important that we spend time on the approach and strategy we use so that…

  • We make shifts in the most impactful way
  • The change we create lasts
  • We evolve as an overall person throughout the process

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:

  • Push me to my absolute physical max
  • Test my mental game
  • Help me evolve the process I use to becoming a higher-level self

This challenge brings fear to my day from the moment I wake up, but even though this is the case…

  • I always do it
  • I know the game, so I hit the objectives most of the time
  • I get the physical and mental rewards I love


A couple weeks ago this question popped up in my head after completing it (when I was huffing and puffing on the ground):

“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.
