    #631 - Mid Life Crisis with Dan Stanley

    #631 - Mid Life Crisis with Dan Stanley

    In everyones lives there are crisis points, and for so many big life events like having kids, losing someone close to you, or experiencing a pandemic life is shifted into perspective and you hit an inflection point. Who am I, what am I doing, why aren't I happy, what's next, do I love him/her, why is life so hard, what does it mean to be a man/woman in todays world - these are all thoughts we face when big life moments rock us.

    I can't lie, becoming a parent in a pandemic hit me, just like Dan Stanley was hit when he had his first child. As an ex military commando he thought he had it all figured out, but FAR from it, a crisis hit, and the purpose of life, what he loved, and everything in it got thrown into turmoil.

    {TRIGGER WARNING} This is a deep show where Dan and I get very vulnerable about our past, and things we did. Talking helps, this is why we are talking about this very topic.

    The books we reference on the show are
    1. The Untethered Soul
    2. Legacy by James Kerr
    3. King, Warrior, Magician, Lover
    4. The Five Languages of Love

    #630 - The Purpose of Fitness

    #630 - The Purpose of Fitness

    What is the purpose of fitness in our lives? We raise this question because we're told keeping fit is good for us, but what type of fitness, and how does that blend with our goals, such as losing weight or building muscle or just being as healthy as we can be? This podcast goes deep quickly, because it has too. The fitness industry is too quick to generalise terms such as 'fitness' and 'healthy', and without identifying what fitness means to each of us, and why we engage in it, we might waste a lot of time and energy doing the wrong things, for the wrong reasons.

    Want clarity on how fitness plays a role in your life? This podcast is for you, get a listen on...

    #629 - Is BodyBuilding Healthy with Ben Haldon

    #629 - Is BodyBuilding Healthy with Ben Haldon

    BodyBuilding has a huge influence over the fitness industry. The very nature of it is a self-centred pursuit, and in my and Ben Haldon (my awesome guest for this show) experience it can quickly lead to body dysmorphia, eating disorders and anxiety. But, can it be healthy, can we build muscle, get lean and look badass without it taking over our lives and influencing many of our daily decisions? We think so, and today Ben and I get under the skin of the issue, looking at Ben's past experience with body building, his journey avoiding prolonged body dysmorphia and disordered eating, and how we feels he has the right balance and mindset to live and happy, healthy, fit life. This is an EPIC show for anyone that trains and is into fitness. Enjoy.

    #628 - The Simple Formula to Success

    #628 - The Simple Formula to Success

    To be more successful with anything, could it simply be a case of delaying gratification? We see this in all areas of life, if we didn't eat that dessert would we have been successful with our diet, if we had stayed consistent would we have built that business, if we could just say NO more, would we be better off, long term? Let's debate this topic and explore delaying gratification to desire, emotion and want, starting with looking at The Marshmallow Experiment, because science is key!

    #626 – Muscle Loss & Metabolism

    #626 – Muscle Loss & Metabolism

    Does your metabolism slow down as you age? Many people say it does, but not like you think, its another cultural norm we need to challenge as the narrative is wrong. What does have a BIG influence on metabolism is muscle mass, something a lot of people into fitness want to increase. I've lost a load of muscle recently from having long covid, so this spurred the conversation around what can cause muscle loss, how to navigate it if injured or ill, how metabolism and age plays a role, and how to get our head around it all - often the biggest challenge.
