Since 2008, I have been coaching people to get closer to the things they want in life, by means of physical training. My vision for training was not directly about changing the way your body looked, eating better or running faster. It wasn’t about lifting more weight than the next person or having a better body.
Rather, it was about transforming your whole existence. Revolutionising yourself. Using training as a tool to help you achieve things in all areas of your life. To this day, my view remains the same.
My Point Of View
Training your body is training your ability to do well in life. You’re training your ability to be good at things. You’re training your ability to be determined, to be disciplined, to be tenacious and many other wonderful traits that are highly transferable to other seemingly non-related things in life.
I believe in continuing training (or more broadly speaking, some form of movement) despite the ups and downs of life. By training throughout the emotional ups and downs that life brings, you make a personal statement that you are going to look after yourself despite life’s circumstances. You are declaring that your health and taking care of yourself is so important, that you are willing to make a sacrifice in order to keep it a constant.
