This quantitive measurement will keep increasing in its size and complexity over the coming years. Improvements in wearable tech – shirts that will be able to measure heart…

The Hunger Scale

This is a handy tool to understand the ‘how’ part of an individuals intake. As someone that would be happy to eat every minute of every day, I found this helpful to distinguish between whether I was an obsessive foodie or a nourishing human. The Scale moves from 1 being the hungriest you have ever…

When knowledge becomes learning

Having a conversation in the studio last week, we were discussing the food diary exercise http://yourfit.com.au/exercise-self-awareness/, we were talking about the difference between knowing something and learning something. Learning requires an experience of implementing the knowledge. This is the space where recognition of behaviour requires action to improve it, that is where the learning is.…

Rules out principles in…

Rules are a great way to get people into a good/bad mindset or feeling of guilt more often than not. If you break the rules you’re bad, if you use the principles as a guide then you’ll remain on track. Let’s use the aeroplane analogy to talk training principles, now I’m no pilot but a…

An Exercise in Self-Awareness

The humble food diary is often the battleground between the best version of yourself and the version you would rather not admit too. Several studies over the years have demonstrated that people underestimate their input. The other thing I have found interesting over the journey has been the interpretation of the weekend, sometimes starting on…

It’s not your fault

Ok, honest answer to a straightforward question, do you want to change or do you want someone else to blame? You see if we are continually chasing the silver bullet, the quick fix then the answer will more than likely be ‘blame’. Honestly, it’s someone else to push the fault to. This is very different…

Numbers do lie…

  Let’s imagine for a moment, you lose that extra 5kg you’ve been dying to get rid of or you magically overnight wake up the weight you have always wanted to be that majestic number that always eludes you. These quests for such numbers bring with them a big promise because happiness can only be…

Choice Architecture

Choice Architecture Motivation, Inspiration and positive self-talk all have their place and I am a firm believer in their role in assisting us through the confusion and chaos that is inevitable when living, operating and comparing ourselves to others in our daily lives. One of the greatest assets we can create, (an asset defined as…

Whether it’s the latest health kick, a moral decision or a state of confusion in what is actually ok to eat, what is often observed in these lifestyle decisions is a significant restriction to the…

Just over three years ago my life changed, I started training with Sean! I was unfit, weighed over 100 kilos and hadn't exercised in years. Initially I had three goals I wanted to achieve - I wanted to lose 14 kilos, to be fit at 40 (I’d just turned 39) and I wanted the "bicep vein". I honestly thought 14 kilos was never going to happen, too hard, but with an ever-changing exercise routine (you definitely don't get bored) and some positive changes to my diet I achieved it in only four months and just in time for Christmas! Fast forward another couple of years and I’ve now lost a total of 26 kilos, am fitter than I have been since my early 20’s and I can see the bicep vein! More importantly Sean and Amy have helped me make positive lifestyle changes that will stay with me for life. I never thought I would like exercising, never thought I would be under 100 kilos let alone 77, and never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would love boxing! Sean is an awesome trainer, a top bloke and I wouldn’t be this fit in my 40's without his amazing support.
