Right now we live in a forever changing world that seems to be picking up pace by the day. Pretty exciting for all kinds of reasons. But there's a problem. It's probably the biggest problem I come across in what I do.

The world we live in is becoming more instant, materialistic, monetised, digital and technological all the time.

So why is this a problem for getting in shape?

We as people have become so damn conditioned to thinking every problem we have can be solved with a click, app, swipe or google search that we struggle to comprehend when a problem can't be solved this way.

What about if we just throw a lot of money at it? That's got to solve it right?

Nope. Money can't do it for you either.

When it comes to improving your health and fitness you have to get your hands dirty and work hard at it over time. There is no secret hack. No magic pills. No shortcuts.

Yeh you can work smart and be as clever as you like about your training program, diet etc. In fact I urge you to do just that. But this isn't and never will be an alternative to hard, sweaty, tiresome work and some conscious habit changes.

So no more looking for an easy way out. If being the best version of you in a health and fitness sense is something you truly want, get to work you will reap the rewards.
