    Ep 231 // When you start something new!

    Ep 231 // When you start something new!

    When you start something new there can be an 'alarm reaction' from the body. A new training stimulus or maybe it's the time of your life that is the 'new thing'! Either way it can be as equally challenging as exciting and motivating to start something new. Over the years we've both (Tim and Jacko) played with many different types of training and sports and often made similar mistakes!
    .
    But we have learned some lessons over the years and we are both embarking on some new challenges at the moment (Tim with CrossFit and Jacko with ultra marathons) and we hope those lessons can help you nagivate a smoother path when you embark on any new pursuits.

Redefine your impossible

Is this even a question?

Great interview style and good info

I’ve seen these guys on other social things for a while and always thought the content was good, but I really rate these podcasts even more. Funny, friendly and even wise. Great info on training strategy, physiology, injury management and all sorts of other health and kid related stuff.
And good interviews. You know those times where they invite someone on and then talk over them and never really let the guests speak? This isn’t that. They ask intelligent relevant questions and really draw out the info the guests have. Aces.
