Why the Body Stuff?
I don’t know but sport and the body has always held a particular interest for me. Not that I’m anyone special in that arena. In fact I was always ‘that’ kid; the last one to finish a race, the slowest, the one everyone had to wait for.
It was painful because I always wanted to be better.
In my twenties I overate, I binged and I realised just how much the ‘inner’ stuff affects the outer stuff. So when I wanted to lose weight sustainabily or deal with Lyme disease I had to go inside.
For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to unlock potential; my own and those around me and that’s why I coach.
I’ve failed. I’ve failed fast and I’ve failed until I’ve learnt. As a result I’ve worked as an executive level marketer leading teams both in South Africa and the United Kingdom achieving business and brand results. But it was writing “Carbs, Curves & Everything in Between” and cycling that made me realise I want to focus on helping people shift their body stuff. I’ve cycled round Vietnam, the Alps and Spain. I’ve contributed to topical media including Oprah Magazine, Psychologies and Entrepreneur magazine. Above this all I’ve learnt how what we believe and our behaviour contributes more to our lives than we realise.
Weight. Health. Wellness
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it” ~ Rumi
Rumi had something right there. Our task is not to seek weight loss or health or looking drop dead gorgeous but rather all the BS defences we have against it.
The problem with this is that BS (yes bull***t) costs alot of time, money and energy. I don’t know about you but I feel like I don’t want to waste time, money or energy on BS.
I want to look and feel fabulous and help others to do the same! Because life is just too damned short for anything else!
Who inspires me?
Goodness I’m inspired all the time by the many people I meet on a daily basis but truth be tod, . On an intellectual level I’m inspired Steven Pressfield, David Jones from Eazl, Dr Joe Dispenza and the millions of people who see the world in a different way.
