Thanks for the heroic efforts this week, never let the fire go out, because once it goes out, it can go out for a long time, in ALL WALKS OF LIFE.

I know those who read this have fire in you, but if you are not using all your ability and weapons and not showing up, life can pass you by and before you know it, you will be one of those reflecting on “past glories”.

Don’t be the one who says “do you remember the time I used to be good at exercise”? People may pretend to sympathise with you but secretly say “here we go again behind you back.

Live your life in the past and you see your life through rose-tinted spectacles, at the same time glancing down in regret at leaving those great times and feelings disappear.

Nobody can do it for you. You either buy in as much natural food in the house to keep energising and HEALING your body, or you are past caring, don’t give a damn and keep buying processed, sugary and fatty foods into the house.

Buy rubbish, feel rubbish-Your choice.

How big is the fight in you? How big are those feelings of pride you have? You are either right in the mix at the gym, improving very quickly every week or you are sitting on the sidelines in life full of regret, and telling yourself a “story” that is untrue about you not being good enough anymore.

Re-light your fire, but it only gets started through exercise.

Outstanding effort from everyone this morning and tonight. What a great start to Emma Williams‘ class too, great effort from all of you.

If you want one of the TRUE secrets of success, then its the showing up consistently and giving it everything less than TWO weeks before Christmas.

The GRIT you are showing right now makes you a champion, and a year round on at that. Getting in shape isn’t a month here, month there type of effort, it’s putting it all together and making it a TRUE PART of your everyday life.

It’s not about getting in shape AFTER Christmas and doing what everyone else thinks, and falling for all sorts of fads that promise wonders in 2 weeks, it’s about grinding it out the RIGHT way all year long.

You are all INDIVIDUALS who have your own opinions and characters and you are grabbing your big opportunities RIGHT NOW, and we are all proud of you for doing it.

The intensity is still great at the gym, it’s still fierce and there is still deep desire to do great things.

Get your MIND strong by keeping your body strong. Can’t do one without the other!!!!

My Sunday running with the family up the mountain DOES NOT stop because it’s dark and wet. 

It’s our routines that make us what we are.

Giving up this time of year means you give up on your health. You say to yourself that wheezing is just fine with you, because stopping training and eating rubbish will surely invite more difficult breathing in this weather. That can’t be fun.

Giving up right now means you give up on other things in life, because you haven’t got the energy to get up early and go after your ambitions. Simple as that. Those plans “will just have to wait” AGAIN.

We have large numbers at the gym still hitting it hard right now, and we deeply praise them and sincerely appreciate their efforts.

You GET IT. 

You get what the connection is between great health, personal achievement and happiness. 

Many people who struggle with their health want to turn back the clock when they were 18, and how good they felt. They rue the day they started on blood pressure tablets for example because their didn’t look after themselves enough over a number of years. 

Yet they are still not willing to change their lifestyle, so eating rubbish and drinking a few times a week is the “connection” they make with youth, even if it’s half killing them now.

Your habits MAKE YOU or BREAK YOU. We try to stay a very strong team, picking each other up along the way.

As you get older, great health matters far more than spending too much on cosmetic material things that don’t matter, especially this time of year. 

Your daily habits will make you rich in health if you practice a few simple things daily, we all have the same choices, some take them, some ignore them but they all have a cost now and in the future.

Look after yourself.

Sunday, 26th March

If this weather doesn’t give you the kickstart to get more active, then you need to have a look at yourself.

Sun on your back means you are being actively encouraged to get out and about and show what your body was meant to do.

No excuse now to shiver indoors, and waste yet more time watching rubbish on TV that will only make you more miserable, more inactive. Superior knowledge of a reality programme gets you nowhere near where you really want to be in your life, unless it’s your chosen subject on Mastermind.

If you get off your behind right now, get down the harbour, beach, mountain-anywhere that looks amazing, then i guarantee that 10 minutes later you feel better, you will feel more hopeful, you will wonder why you didn’t do it earlier, and why you waited to get going in the first place.

Most of the time we worry about wind in our faces, how cold and wet it is, how dark it is, so the time is right now to seize the moment and realise we have everything working on our side for a change.

Please don’t contemplate it, don’t discuss it too much, no need to have a meeting about whether you should do it or not, just take action right now and DO IT no questions asked!!!
