    Think Fit Episode 120: Imposter Syndrome

    Think Fit Episode 120: Imposter Syndrome

    Imposter Syndrome. This is something that we have both experienced but maybe never been able to put a name to. We talk about the times where we have convinced ourselves that we are not good enough or that we have achieved something by luck. We look at the times we have noticed other people doing this around us and then we brainstorm the ways we think people can help manage these feelings.

    Big shout out to Laura Johnston for providing the inspiration for this week's discussion.

    Think Fit Episode 119: What is More Important? Diet, Cardio or Strength Training?

    Think Fit Episode 119: What is More Important? Diet, Cardio or Strength Training?

    We all know the saying you can't outrun a bad diet but does that mean it is the most important thing when it comes to losing weight and being healthy?
    This week we look at the pros and cons of each and give our thoughts on which are the most important and why. The answer might surprises you (or not because it is always going to be about balance.)

    But we do look at the reasons why each of these are important and how a thorough understanding of them will enable you to lose weight quicker and keep it off!

    Think Fit Episode 118: Using Your Mind to Successfully Make Positive Change with Bevan James Eyles

    Think Fit Episode 118: Using Your Mind to Successfully Make Positive Change with Bevan James Eyles

    Team this episode is a goodie!
    With Tim in Canada we decided to share an episode which has by far had a tremendous impact on us both individually but also how we try to highlight the importance of self reflection and building strategise
    We were extremely lucky to be joined by Bevan James Eyles this week for one of the most engaging, entertaining and informative discussions we have ever been a part of (we weren't the funny, informative or engaging part.) We discussed the importance of identifying strategies to set yourself up for success, how to make sure you learn from your mistakes and not let them define you. We have an in-depth discussion about the power of optimism and how it can lead to a healthier life as well as so much more.
    Honestly! This is not an attempt to get you to listen to the episode! It genuinely was just a great episode to record. Years ago Bevan started to go overboard with both drugs and alcohol until he woke up one day and didn't like who he was. He turned his life around and became not only an incredible athlete but is Internationally recognised as one of the best minds in fitness and has helped countless people to overcome their own barriers and make successful change in all aspects of their life. We are very proud to present this episode for you to listen to and we hope you get as much out of it as we did recording it.

    Think Fit Episode 117: Setting Yourself Up With What You Have Available

    Think Fit Episode 117: Setting Yourself Up With What You Have Available

    So Robo wanted to talk about time (again) without realising that he brought up the same topic only a few episodes ago so instead we talk about how to ensure you are set up to use the time that you do have available. 

    We look at being realistic with yourself, understanding that there is often more time that goes into something like a one hour run than just an hour and getting your family on board. There is as always, good stuff here for people who are struggling to make a healthy change.

    Think Fit Episode 116: Weight Loss Isn't Pass/Fail

    Think Fit Episode 116: Weight Loss Isn't Pass/Fail

    It is all too easy to beat yourself up when you miss a gym session or grab a sneaky mac attack on your way home. These little missteps can often lead to feelings of failure or needing to 'reset' next Monday. We want to emphasise that losing weight isn't as simple as a pass/fail and that by approaching it that way we can often derail our best efforts and set ourselves back. We look at the need to accept our own limitations and the need to accept that slip-ups or failure are actually just part of the process.

    Think Fit Episode 115: Sleep Yourself Skinny! The Importance of Sleep For Your Health

    Think Fit Episode 115: Sleep Yourself Skinny! The Importance of Sleep For Your Health

    We all know it... Sleep is extremely important for our health and our weight. But forget the fancy science, this week we talk about how to develop good habits around sleep to make sure it doesn't affect your weight.

    We discuss ways to help get to sleep, ways to know if you are too tired or just being a bit of a sook. We explain the ways you can develop the habit of getting up early to make time for exercise or work and even why we think you should consider napping if you can.

Life Changing

My husband started listening to this last year when our son was sick in hospital and we were traveling more than an hour each day to visit him (I was asleep whilst he drove 😂). The changes in his diet and exercise were obvious. Before long he had Tim coaching him and Chloe as his nutritionist! Not only is he obviously healthier but he is also a lot happier!
I love listening to the banter between you and they makes my rides and runs seem a lot shorter. However, I must admit I often get odd looks when I’m running along laughing to myself!
Highly recommended! Please keep doing what you’re doing!

Great show

A great show that covers weight loss in general and some of the different challenges and hiccups faced along the journey. A down to earth podcast that is approachable, light hearted and easy to listen to
