How to Return from the Holidays Better Than Ever

I don’t know about you, but I was glad to be back on the mats after the holidays,

I did notice something though, which inspired this post:

That some people come back better, and some people come back worse after a break,

Have you noticed this in yourself? Which one are you?

I talked with someone before rolling about how his cardio had suffered over the holidays,

I’m sure most people gained a few pounds,

And for sure some people’s skills got sloppier.

This doesn’t just apply to Jiu Jitsu either, this could be any sport/hobby/practice,

Or just your overall movement & health.

You may only notice one major area of your health & fitness suffering,

But really these affect every other part of your health, your movement, and your life.

Once your cardio goes, you can throw your technique out the window with it,

Carrying around extra weight is going to bring down your cardio levels, among many other things,

And all of these slow down your progress in life, in one way or another.

I noticed there were some key differences that will either make or break you in movement & health,

The three main things are your mindset, your foundation, and your strategy,

How you approach the situation, the base you have underneath you, and what you do to achieve the outcome that you desire,

These three things can be applied to any part of your life (and they are, whether you like it or not).

How you do anything is how you do everything.

So improving these three things in your health will improve all other areas of your life,

Your practice will be better, your career will be better, your relationships will be better,

When you do this, when you have the right mindset, the right foundation, and the right strategy,

You will be able to enjoy the holiday to the fullest, and not only will your health & your Jiu Jitsu performance NOT suffer…

It will actually be BETTER.

If you find yourself coming back worse after every holiday, after every break, taking two steps forward and one step back, over and over again, and you are ready to end that cycle and just keep moving forward, then book a call and we can talk about how you can do that:

I’ve opened up a few slots in my calendar to speak with those who are committed and coachable and ready to take action towards a better future now.

Click that link, pick a time that works for you, and fill out the form afterwords. We’ll hop on the phone for about 45 mins and get you clear on what’s keeping you stuck in that cycle of little to no progress.

If we’re a good fit to work together then we can talk about the next steps you need to take to unlock your body and free your mind, simply. It’s very simple, yes, but as with anything worth having – it’s not easy.

But really, who cares if it’s easy or not? It is WORTH IT. If you want it to be easy, then we likely aren’t a good fit.

If you are ready to make a real, lasting change towards unleashing your true potential today, then book a call and I’ll talk with you soon.

Are You Eating Ass-Backwards?

This might sound weird but,

I see this all the time. Especially around the holiday season…

People eating ass-backwards. ?

(I double checked the punctuation. It’s still nasty…)

Somewhere in the latest trend of “health & fitness” people were infected with this idea,

That if you eat that “bad” food, you have to work out extra hard.

That you gotta burn all those calories off that you just stuffed your face with.

This way of thinking, this motivation, is completely backwards.

And it brings you down this spiral of shame.

You feel bad about the food that you ate, then you punish yourself with exercise.

So you don’t feel good about the food, you don’t feel good about the exercise, then you don’t feel good about yourself… and goes the downward spiral

If you continue to have this unhealthy relationship with food, you’ll NEVER be able to unlock your body.

You’ll never be able to burn off the extra body fat,

You’ll never be able to boost your cardio,

And you’ll never be able to have an injury-free body.

You’ll just keeping running on the rat wheel not going anywhere, until eventually you get burnt out.

When you stop eating “ass-backwards”, when you break this cycle,

And you make this shift (mainly a mindset shift),

You achieve a sense of FREEDOM.

Freedom to ENJOY your food, and freedom to ENJOY your movement.

You no longer have to feel guilty for celebrating and enjoying those holiday treats,

You no longer have to work out extra hard and try to “undo the damage”.

You can just enjoy life, and not have to stress about your health.

When you do this, your health no longer a punishment, it’s a reward,

This is how you avoid those injuries, this is how you boost your cardio, and this is how you melt away the extra body fat.

When you achieve this healthy relationship, you will get into peak health effortlessly,

And when you unlock your body and free your mind, you will unleash your true potential.

If you feel like this is happening to you, and you’re ready to break free from the downward spirals, then reach out. I’d be happy to see if I can help.

Click here to book a call, and we’ll talk for about 45-mins to find out exactly why you’re stuck where you are. Maybe it’s this unhealthy relationship you have with food, maybe it’s an unhealthy relationship you have with movement, maybe it’s another lifestyle factor that you’re completely unaware of.

Whatever it is, we’ll get clear on what’s holding you back, and if we’re a good fit to work together we’ll talk about how you can break free from it.

After you click the link, just pick whatever time works for you, fill out the short form afterwards, and I’ll talk with you at the time you selected.

Talk soon,

Death to Dieting

May this be the last time you ever “diet”…

(Taking a sip of a Real Ale as I type this…)

Have you tried dieting with no success?

You’ve probably tried to eat food that you really don’t like, in the name of “health”.

Or maybe you’ve tried to count calories and portion control.

Or you tried this fad diet, and that fad diet…

There’s a reason why those never work.
