Lost for Words

Highly uncharacteristic. I’ve always had an opinion, loved a debate, and, like most, enjoy talking about myself, but recently I had less to say, a lot less. The day I noticed it most was when I ran out of ideas. Just gone!? I don’t really know how to describe but its like the idea’s well had dried up. I grew…

WHY 2016 IS EXACTLY WHAT THE WORLD NEEDED

I’ve read countless blogs, status updates, articles of how TERRIBLE 2016 was. If you was one of those people, I would love to hear your thoughts on 2016 after you’ve read this article.* *Note; this, like everything I write is me processing and working through my own personal reflections, so I’m as guilty of this as the next person! ūüėÄ…

BEFORE AND AFTER WHAT?!

I don’t know about you, but I get real bored these days of seeing endless before and after posts on *insert any social media platform*, they’re all full of them. #motivationmonday, #throwbackthursday and #transformationtuesday …. STOP LIVING IN THE PAST GUYS. If you look through Phoenix Strength publications you will be VERY hard pressed to find any physique before and…

FIGHT OR FLIGHT

The last 4 weeks have been crazy, hectic, emotional, exciting, exhausting…you name it, I’ve felt it. When a situation is forced upon you have 2 choices, fight or flight. I’ve trained my fight response pretty well in the past, it’s why Phoenix Strength even came into existence in the first place, however, it took a certain environment, support network and…

5 MINUTES OF FAME – SWEATY BETTY LIVE

“I thought you were someone. As in someone famous…” Apparently I am!? Well, I was for 5 minutes on Saturday at Sweaty Betty Live over at The Yard, Shoreditch. I was attempting to explain to a good friend of mine, the day I had just had. Where, for a few hours, I was ‘someone’, although they already believed I was,…

SOMETIMES I F&*% UP, I’M OKAY WITH IT.

We all experience¬†it, those moments in your head when that little voice, or in some¬†cases, that really clear loud voice in your head says “Ah sh!t, I think I f&*%ed up”. You’re little monkey voice may express themselves a differently, but mine is normally full of profanities, I’m not going to apologise for it ūüėČ I used to think it…

TRAIN YOURSELF TO UNDERSTAND YOU’RE ON THE HUNT EVERYDAY!

Lets be honest everyone, the Fitness Industry is a mess. I can say this because I’ve had the luxury of experiencing the polar opposite ends of this industry, from being the¬†100% undertrained novice, all the way to Coach, gaining the appropriate qualifications (which, this part of the industry is also a real sham, but thats a rant for another day)…

Becoming Dysfunctional

    December 13th 2015 marked the 2 year anniversary (?! – not sure on my choice of word there)¬†of my accident…for those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, the accident in question was Friday 13th December 2013 where I broke my elbow, shattered the humorous, tore the ligaments and dislocated my¬†elbow requiring reconstructive surgery, a…

Pictures and Words – Why you shouldn’t read my blog

There’s a lot of reasons why you shouldn’t read and follow my¬†blog. My writing isn’t the best it could be, you have no current interest in what I have to share, I’m not a leader in industry yet so essentially you’re reading the ramblings of a late 20’s fitness enthusiast, passionate about life, personal development and finding greatness in myself…
